Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Whose Fiscal Cliff?

The elevation of deficit reduction “to the be-all and end-all of policy discussion in Washington really is what’s driving some Democrats away” from their traditional defense of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, said Chris Hellman, of the National Priorities Project. By endorsing the Simpson-Bowles proposals, President Obama has “made it clear that he is at least willing to discuss some changes in those programs.” Obama is more than willing to impose sever austerity, said Kevin Zeese, of Occupy Washington DC.“He’s going to be giving away the store,” said Zeese.“Every constituency that supported Obama is going to lose in this negotiation.”

President Obama has nearly consummated his long courtship with the GOP, yet Black and labor leaders continue to pretend that he is a bulwark against austerity. In an even more nightmarish version of Groundhog Day, "the behavior of the Black and labor leadership actors remains the same, as the economic and political landscape crumbles around them.” HOW CAN SOMEONE CALL A MAN "THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR BARAK OBAMA" REALLY NO MORE GOD OR JESUS FOR BLACK PEOPLE OH FOR SOME BLACK PEOPLE NOT ALL

President Obama is taking his case for a grand austerity bargain with the Republicans on the road, moving us “closer to eliminating the threadbare safety net.” Not so long ago, it would have been inconceivable that a Democratic president barnstorm the country,“loudly and publicly demanding support for making right wing fantasies come true.”

African Americans “leaders” – or “liars,” in the case of Reverends Sharpton and Dyson – did a great disservice to their constituencies by failing to pressure President Obama. “These men selfishly took advantage of their proximity to power, and successfully used it as leverage for their personal brands, at the expense of the black community at large

If African Americans are – finally – prepared to fight their way out of the current crisis, they “must develop a set of tactics, strategies, and objectives to improve their deteriorating condition, particularly in the arena of mass incarceration.” A “human rights” strategy would serve us well.

Racial Solidarity in Misery

Who won on November 6?“If maintaining a degree of racial solidarity is a victory, then both sides – those that were solidified by their whiteness, and those that were solidified by their Blackness – I guess you can say that they both won that,” said Columbia, South Carolina, activist and author Kevin Alexander Gray.“Every economic and social indicator since Barack Obama got elected is in the negative.” Gray is author of Waiting for Lightning to Strike: The Fundamentals of Black Politics.

Reflexive African American loyalty to President Obama reminds Dr. Anthony Monteiro of Malcolm X’s critique of Black affection for President John F. Kennedy:“We put him first, and he put us last.” The same goes for Obama, said Monteiro, professor of African American Studies at Temple University, in Philadelphia.“And us being last will be even worse in his second term, because he does not need the Black vote again. Black people will become more invisible.”

Carol posted during the run up to the election rather than working for the Republicans in her county. Did Orlando go for President Obama?

Republicans want to ruin the economy with their actions in the House and will receive the blame according to polls.

When a Bush, a McCain, or a Romney condones corporate crimes against the rest of us, lies to us, tortures and imprisons at will and murders civilians at a whim, it's a moral disaster. When a black Democrat does it, it's nothing personal, just business. And we are soooo proud. What's wrong with us?

When black leadership gets its legitimacy from the oppressed, but its funding from the oppressor, this is what we get. We call it the Black Misleadership Class. And why was Davey D the only black media figure we heard even asking the question? Is this the Obama phenomenon trickling down --- we don't dare question our black “representatives” because.... because.... well.... why?

Actually, no. Someone else on Greta who pointed out the dangers of republicans simply allowing us to go over the cliff without reaching some kind of agreement with an AWOL president who's still on the campaign trail.
Obama is perfectly happy about the cliff. Which is another reason republicans have to at least try and save the day for all of us and then get blamed for it - as usual.
You really don't have even an inkling about what's going to happen if Obama gets his way, do you? You wouldn't like it. But you also don't seem to care.
Republican should stick to their guns.
Renominate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
Keep the Tea Party going.

Your posts helped in the last election.

Jay-Z has earned mountains of money from HipHop, but “his politics are diametrically opposed to the interest of Black liberation at home and abroad.” The music mogul identifies with an oligarchy whose interests are antithetical to Black liberation. “If the balance of one’s material promotes the interest of the oppressor, that rapper is not HipHop

The “Obama Phenomenon” is a world-class consciousness-destroyer, guaranteed to burn a hole in your soul. Millions of once-progressive minds have fallen victim to the scourge.“Obama users have turned on friends and colleagues who kept their principles regardless of which capitalist flunky commits the crimes.”

"murders civilians".

US citizens are shot & killed eery day by government agents.

Policemen find themselves in the position to shoot & kill civilians because they are endangering others & the police officers.

It is no different when a US citizen takes up with the enemy to direct attacks against us. Like a shooter in a clock tower, they hide in a foreign land not accessible to capture.

Only would a right whiner would side with these people. To claim that we should do nothing & allow these people to harm others.
