    Medger Evans, Dr. Cornel West, Dr. Boyce Watkins etc., etc., are dreaming if these individuals believe that Corporate America, Corporate stockholders, etc., etc., are going to allow the government to take assets to reduce the 17 Trillion Dollar Deficit.

    The U.S. government is not going to divert Federal dollars from the U.S. military to pay for more Food stamps, to bail Detroit out, etc.

    http://www.usdebtclock.org/

    Considering the 17 trillion dollar and climbing Federal Deficit, this is the worst period in the history of the U.S. to be employed as a public servant by the Federal Government. Without question, cuts will be made to reduce the Federal deficit, and there will be downsizing in the Federal government, because there is not enough money to keep financing a bloated government, and wealthy corporate America and corporate shareowners are not going to pick up the tab to reduce the 17 Trillion dollar deficit either.

    In many instances, the Black community, specifically as this applies to Detroit, Compton, Los Angeles, Baltimore, and other jurisdictions with a large Black voting constituency have been its’ own worst enemy, by promoting elected officials who have contempt for the Oath of Office, the Constitution, a respective State Constitution. Most of all, most any U.S. born descendant of slavery community with Black elected officials, public servants, and/or Black lawyers, who are mandated by law, sworn under oath, paid with your tax dollars, and/or should have made the Black community the highest priority as this concerns the fiduciary duty to competently represent, have betrayed the Black community by stealing, lying, playing games of deceit, misusing or misappropriating taxpayer’s dollars, being unethical or criminal, and being a disgrace to the essence of what it means to be an elected official or public servant, and/or lawyer.

    The U.S. government is not going to divert Federal dollars from the U.S. military to pay for more Food stamps, to bail Detroit out, etc. Instead, the U.S. House of Representatives will cut food stamps, social welfare benefits, and unemployment benefits to reduce the deficit instead of sacrificing the strength of the U.S. military.

    For decades our own elected leaders, lawyers, have failed to place value in the Constitution, the Oath of office, the rule of law, the duty to be ethical and law abiding in the pursuit of holding agents and officials accountable for violating the Constitutional rights of U.S. born Black men, women, and children, this being an important possible legitimate legal means of acquiring assets from a private or government entity, Corporate America, and/or the affluent.

    HOLD YOUR NOSE – HERE COMES REV. CORNEL WEST AGAIN, FOLKS

    Cornel West said,
    .
    “The kind of courage that these brothers had in 1971 is in short supply,” said Dr. West. “It’s in short supply. Because when you bring together the national security state and the military industrial complex, when you bring together the prison industrial complex and all the profits that flow from it, when you bring together the corporate media multiplex that don’t want to allow for serious dialogue unless we got sister Amy (Goodman) or brother Tavis (Smiley) and some others, and then when you bring together the Wall Street oligarchs and the corporate plutocrats and they tell any person or any group, ‘if you speak the truth, we’ll shoot you down like a dog and dehumanize you the way they typically the brothers in Attica’, the only thing that will keep you going is you better have some love in your heart for the people.”
    .
    NICE SERMON, REV. WEST, BUT WE’D PREFER YOU LIVE US A SERMON INSTEAD OF ALWAYS PREACHIN’ US ONE.
    .
    1). If you have so much “love for the people,” why is it that you’ve never taught at a school that the average Black student can get into in your ENTIRE career?
    .
    2). And where was your “love for the people” when you sat back and watched your “Brother Tavis” Smiley be paid by Wells Fargo to Judas-Goat over 30,000 minorities into being swindled out of their homes and life savings in the Wells Fargo “Ghetto Loan” scam?
    .
    3). And why doesn’t your “love for the people” inspire you to encourage Mr. Tavis ‘Accountability’ Smiley to be “accountable” and return the money he made off the scam to the people who lost their assets?
    .
    4). And why doesn’t your “love for the people” inspire you to encourage Mr. Tavis ‘Accountability’ Smiley to speak out on the atrocious way that his Walmart road dawgs treat it’s workers?
    .
    UNTIL YOU DO THESE THINGS “BROTHER” WEST, YOU AND THE “HONORABLE” MR. TAVIS SMILEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIBILITY IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY.
    .
    A QUESTION FOR BOTH TAVIS SMILEY AND CORNEL WEST
    .
    Mr. Smiley, do you intend to return the Millions of dollars that you reportedly made from herding poor Black people and Hispanics into the Wells Fargo “Ghetto Loan” scam to the people who lost their money and homes? And Dr. West, in your learned opinion, what is the appropriate course of action for your friend and associate to take – in accordance with the “prophetic tradition,” of course? . . . MORE

    @Eric Wattree…I wish every African American could read your words, I have seen a number of brothers and sisters comment to the posted statements by Smiley,Watkins,West,and a few other of their associates. I will be happy when the TEApublicans expose the names of the people on their properganda payroll. I can assure you we as a people will be shocked or maybe not. President Obama has had to deal with (Judas) wannabe black leaders his entire terms,he has associated with those who he consider legimate,and none of the panel or aforementioned are on the legit list. Smiley and West have traveled many places and all they have done is play the (crab in the barrel) card. Hill preface his poison by saying he loves Obama, only an idiot would believe (birds of a feather) he or any of his associates love Obama nor do they love the people,they pretend to want to represent (African Americans). The president is beating the best white racist they have in this country,we all witness how openly the TEApublicans have become, I often wonder what is going through these Black men an Women minds when they are spewing the same identical words as the TEApublican…ERIC I say cudos to you for making things so plain,if just one mind is changed to their way of thinking,is one to many because it is a benefit for those RACIST TEApublicans…PEACE

    It is so piitiful that these folks are constantly criticizing the president. At the same time, they constantly bring up Al Sharpton, Melissa Harris Perry, Prof Dyson and others. It just occured to me that is it because they are on major networks as either talk show hosts, or commentators and Dr. West, Hill, Smiley and some of the others are not. I do not know the reason they were not selected. They certainly have much to say and I would love to have seen Dr. West, Hill, and tavis on MSNBC, NBC, and the other shows, but for some reason they were not selected or given daily or weekly TV shows, with the exception of Tavis who still has a program. It looks like its jealousy to me. Now Marc Lamont Hill has been on several shows regularly. It appears to me that once a person has appeared in any capacity on any of these networks speaking as “the Black person”, the tv appearance becomes addictive to them. The worse thing president obama did was not show up during his first presidential campaign to Tavis’s event, and did not invite Prof. West to the White House. I think Obama made a serious mistake in both instances. He should have made time for both, and should have seen his decision as either rejection of two people who were very supportive of him, particularly Dr. West. The president needs to be big enough to make this right. But at the same time, I wish Tavis and Dr. West would let this go, and focus on what they are talking about and continue to do the work that they are doing, because we need them and the work they do, and Marc Lamont Hill and the others as well. Barack Obama is just one man, and will soon be out of the White House. he has enough enemies who are trying to and are sabotaging him surrounding, he doesn’t deserve to have these important men doing the same thing. they do not have to agree with him on everything, because I certainluy do not, but believe me, just wait until the GOP get the White House back, it will be the same thing as usual. The uncle Toms such as Alan West, Ben Carson and the lilke will be kicked to the curb.

      Kakki,

      You have Tavis Smiley and Cornel West’s motivations wrong. This issue goes much deeper with them than you suggest. Those two dudes are world-class egomaniacal creeps, who are so caught up in themselves that they don’t give a d**n about the damage they’re doing to the Black community. I’ve done nearly 30 on them, and there’s a lot that people don’t know about these two:

    Eric Wattree is typically found whenever there is an article about Cornel West or Tavis Smiley. He is an Internet troll who has nothing better to do than to go around telling everyone how horrible Tavis and Cornel are. He also loves to talk about Dr. Boyce Watkins.

    Funny thing is that he seems to have sour grapes with Dr. Watkins, who he used to work for. So, his motivations are as disingenuous as Cornel or Tavis.

    • Eric Wattree November 25, 2013 at 8:40 am

      James,

      There’s nothing typical about what I do – I wish it were. I spread the word on Tavis, West, and Boyce Watkins because the Black community has suffered for much to along as a result of the turncoat games people like these have been playing – in fact, for centuries. It was undoubtedly the direct result of a sucka like these three in Africa that many Black people ended up in slavery in the first place: “Come on everybody! Hurry! The nice White man want to take you for a boat ride!”

      And yes I did use to write for Watkins’ “Your Black World” – until I found out how regressive his thinking was. At the time I wasn’t sure about his motives (that was before I found out that he was a Blue Dog Democrat – A Democrat in name only), but before I stopped writing for him I told him, “Brother, you may have your heart place, but so did Sitting Bull, but he still led his people over a cliff.” So by saying that my criticism of him is “sour grapes,” you leave the impression that he left me, when the fact is, I left him.

      But to give you an example of the kind of brothers he, Tavis, and West are, Boyce Watkins calls himself “The People’s scholar.” That’s a joke. As badly in need badly in need as Black people are of both education, and money, you’d think that brother would do everything he can to provide what he can. He may not have the resources to relieve the Black community’s need for money, but at the very least, one would think that he’d pass along whatever knowledge he has. But is he doing that? Not at all. As badly as Black people need every penny they can lay their hands on, just like Tavis and West with their constant book selling crusades disguised as “Poverty Tours,” this brother is trying to SELL the Black community knowledge that he should be GIVING away. Check this out. It says it all.

    That’s pathetic. The reason we can’t get ahead as a people is because dumb negroes like you tear down all of our black leaders. You’re probably getting paid by the Obama administration to shut down anybody who does anything good for black people. Just sad.

    A true Black leader, hero, and/or anyone worthy of respect and admiration would be standing up for Black people, using his or her educational, political, and courageous characteristics to uphold the Constitution, respect the “Oath of office”, to make it possible for many Black men, women, and children egregiously violated by government in every jurisdiction of the United States of America to be compensated handsomely for all the wrongdoing, criminal and unethical acts perpetrated against both law abiding Black men, women, and children, and anyone formerly or presently incarcerated who have also been wronged by the atrocities of government.

    This is why I have nothing but praise for Malcolm X, AKA, Malcolm Little, and all the unsung heroes of Black America who are not sellouts, not spineless, not treasonous, not sleazy, not “Step n Fetchit” hand in hand handkerchief head spineless excuses for Black men and women who exist today.

    President Barack Obama is so weak, that he is an excuse for being a man, because he does not make and stand by his own decisions, like a true man would. Charlatan President Barack Obama takes and accepts guidance from his Chicago Cut-Throat associates such as Valerie Jarrett, Caucasian liberals out to make a financial killing at the expense of taxpayers, unethical corporate executives, illegal alien advocates, Union leaders, Saul Alinsky, enemies of the U.S., etc., etc……

    Stop regurgitating what you’ve been told. Take 10 minutes and do some research for yourself. Just because Obama is not throwing his fist in the air doesn’t mean that he’s not working for the Black community. The President has to take precedent into account with everything that he does. So if he starts running around saying, “This is what I’m doing for my people,” what would Black people able to say when the next White president uses what he’ll call “The Obama Doctrine,” and say, “Here’s what I’m going to do for White people?” President Obama is smart enough not to place us in that position, but Tavis and West are so slow that the thought has never even occurred to them.
    .
    So, Like I said many times before, don’t listen to Tavis and West. They’re two self-serving idiots. Research the facts for yourself. Here’s a start:

      Michael,

      Are you talking about this, Barack Obama?

      IN A FIRST, JPMORGAN AGREED TO ADMIT GUILT; PAYS $13 BILLION
      .
      “The banks in all the SEC cases were allowed to neither admit nor deny wrongdoing – a practice that brought criticism of the agency from judges and investor advocates.
      .
      “But in a first for a major company, JPMorgan admitted in the agreement with the SEC over the $6 billion trading loss in its London operation that it failed in its oversight. The admission could leave the bank vulnerable to millions of dollars in lawsuits. JPMorgan also reached settlements over the trading loss with the Federal Reserve, the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority.”
      .
      In response, the government in January 2012 set up a task force of federal and state law enforcement officials to pursue wrongdoing with regard to mortgage securities.
      .
      In September, JPMorgan agreed to pay $920 million and admit that it failed to oversee trading that led to a $6 billion loss last year in its London operation. That combined amount, in settlements with three U.S. and one British regulator, is one of the largest fines ever levied against a financial institution. In another case, the company agreed to pay a $100 million penalty and admitted that its traders acted “recklessly” with the London trades.
      .
      1). Of the $13 billion, $9 billion is fines or penalties and $4 billion will go to consumer relief for struggling homeowners, the person said.
      .
      2). JPMorgan also agreed to provide cooperation in investigations against individuals in the company, the person said.
      .
      3). JPMorgan settled SEC charges in June 2011 by agreeing to pay $153.6 million and reached another such agreement for $296.9 million last November.
      4). As part of the tentative agreement, JPMorgan dropped its demand for the Justice Department to take a “non-prosecution agreement” off the table, the person said, which means a criminal investigation of the bank’s conduct being handled by federal prosecutors in Sacramento, Calif., continues.
      .
      So they’re not through paying yet, because in spite of this “settlement” the administration is STILL coming after them with MORE charges, including criminal. And here’s another first – the head of JPMorgan, James Dimon, was one of Obama’s biggest supporters. So Obama has taken a “take no prisoners” approach – if you screwed the American people, you’re going down, no matter who you are. Now THAT’S new.

    That is a stupid question because there is only one BO. Again, I choose my own heroes not you, and Barack “the Magic Negro/Illegal Alien Bootlicking/Chicago Cut Throat/Food Stamp Charlatan President” Barack Obama is not worthy of my respect.

    Finally, with good reason, all U.S. born descendants of slavery do not agree with you, because Barack Obama and other misfit Black leaders, lawyers, and the like, betray the Black community before stepping up to competently serve any U.S. born descendant of slavery.

    “FOOL” …Insanity…..DEFINITION:

    “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein

    In 2008, and 2012, better than 90% of the Black community voted for Barack Obama, and the results nothing…..now that is the definition of an idiot, a fool, stupidity, being backwards, wasting the right vote to the power of infinity….

    From the Inside Flap
    Think you know the real Barack Obama? You don’t—not until you’ve read The Amateur

    In this stunning exposé, bestselling author Edward Klein—a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, former foreign editor of Newsweek, and former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine—pulls back the curtain on one of the most secretive White Houses in history. He reveals a callow, thin-skinned, arrogant president with messianic dreams of grandeur supported by a cast of true-believers, all of them united by leftist politics and an amateurish understanding of executive leadership.

    In The Amateur you’ll discover:

    Why the so-called “centrist” Obama is actually in revolt against the values of the society he was elected to lead

    Why Bill Clinton loathes Barack Obama and tried to get Hillary to run against him in 2012

    The spiteful rivalry between Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey

    How Obama split the Kennedy family

    How Obama has taken more of a personal role in making foreign policy than any president since Richard Nixon—with disastrous results

    How Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett are the real powers behind the White House throne

    The Amateur is a reporter’s book, buttressed by nearly 200 interviews, many of them with the insiders who know Obama best. The result is the most important political book of the year. You will never look at Barack Obama the same way again.

    …It is alarming that so many U.S. born Blacks are so head over heels for Barack Obama.

    .”I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on. I expect all of you to march with me and press on. Take off your bed room slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do……I have to lift all boats”

    Illegal immigrants don’t have rights in the U.S., but you treat illegal aliens and his or her anchor babies with more respect that U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who have a right to be here. U.S. born Blacks are treated with the most disrespect by President Barack Obama, Justice Clarence Thomas, multiple members of the Congressional Black Clueless and other misfit Black leaders, etc., etc.

    President Barack Obama was in San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

    Obama makes it plain that he is promoting Amnesty and the Dream Act for millions of illegal aliens, the majority being Hispanic, while he tells U.S. born Blacks…..

    ….. “I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on. I expect all of you to march with me and press on. Take off your bed room slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do.”

    …..or goes to Harlem to sing an Al Green song, none of this worthless and useless B.S. being of any benefit to reduce the high unemployment or will bring redress to the many U.S. blacks who deserve and are entitled to competent representation.

    Selected comment:

    “I dont hate Obama… But I don’t love him either.. He is a POLITICIAN.. He isn’t any better than any of the other presidents who have been “elected” to the White House. I agree that he uses the black community when convenient and ignores the black community when it’s not..

    black folks need to smarten up, and start making politicians EARN our votes. The jews, the gay community, the latino community? they make politicians commit to their agenda before they agree to vote for politicians.. Even the bigots in the TEA party aren’t scared to throw out politicians who don’t commit to their agenda.. The Black community doesn’t have an agenda..

    We need to mature politically as a group and start holding these officials accountable to us. I think Obama’s presidency was wasted by us, but it was a valuable lesson learned..”-Rasheed7

    Indeed Rasheed7

    In the event any elected official has contempt for the Constitution, the Oath of Office, etc., etc., when he or she are mandated by law and sworn under oath to do, it is your right, your duty as an American citizen to do what it takes to vote them out, run for office your self, and/or spread the message so that other citizens can join you to remove him or her from office. This is not hate, this is using the political process to benefit your community.

      Barack Hussein Obama Will Be Remembered As One of Our Greatest Presidents –

      Here Are the Facts:

      I am sick to death of these so-call Black “intellectuals” spending so much time criticizing President Obama – not because I don’t feel that EVERY politician’s feet should be held to the fire, I do, but because most of the nonsense they’re spewing is pure, unmitigated, ignorance. And what makes it worse is it’s either purposeful ignorance, or ignorance due to a lazy-mindedness that could be corrected with less than ten minutes of objective research.
      .
      The irony is, people like Tavis Smiley, Cornel West, the entire GOP, and a lot of other uninformed haters are severely criticizing the President, while Obama’s is showing himself to be one the most fearsome warriors for the American people that this nation has ever had. That’s why the GOP is trying to impeach Eric Holder, because he and Obama are killing their cronies on Wall Street for the abuse of the American people that led to the Great Recession.
      .
      Most American’s have forgotten all about the Wall Street debacle. They’ve simply written it off as a loss, but not Obama. He’s made Wall Street pay all of the bailout money back to the American taxpayer, with interest, (Bailout Payment Tracker), reimburse customers, admit guilt (which leaves them open to private lawsuits), making them pay billions of dollars over and above what they stole, and THEN, he’s making them cooperate in their OWN criminal prosecution! These corporations may be “too big to fail,” but if President Obama has his way, their managers won’t be too big to jail.
      .
      But nobody’s talking about that, and Obama doesn’t believe in tootin’ his own horn. The man is in Washington walking on water, while his critics are talking about him like a dog. But even as they criticize, he’s quietly performing one miracle after another, and then casually walking away without saying a word. So if he has any shortcoming, that’s it – he obviously finds it prudent to pursue the nation’s interest without fanfare.
      .
      A perfect example of that is, if the Republicans had captured or killed Osama Bin Laden, they’d still be bragging about it, and at this point, George W. Bush’s image would be near completion on Mt. Rushmore. Clear evidence of that is how the GOP was bragging about how valiantly they were killing innocent people in Iraq in response to 9-11 – Bush even showed up in a flight suit (presumably the one he ran away from when he was actually SUPPOSE to be in the military). Every Republican in the country was running on it, but all they actually did was spent a trillion dollars with nothing to show for it – which was actually the plan (they purposely ravaged America’s coffers so they could use that as a pretext to attack the social programs put in place by the New Deal, the GOP’s primary reason for being for over seventy years).
      .
      Then, Barack Obama came into office and casually took out Bin Laden with three helicopters and a handful of America’s finest. He then walked away just as casually as he accomplished it. Thereafter, he simply announced the event to the American people and went on to other things. Yet, we have Republicans running around claiming that he’s the most incompetent president that we’ve ever had – and that’s in spite of the fact that they, literally, had to hide Bush and Cheney for two election cycles.
      .
      So to his severe detriment, President Obama just doesn’t like to toot his own horn, but he should – if for no other reason than to bench the demagogues – because the American people should be lovin’ this guy, and they could be of great assistance in helping him move the country forward. By emphasizing his accomplishments he could not only shut down the Republicans, but he could also shut the mouths of these so-called Black intellectuals who are so busy bashing the most powerful symbol of Black competence in the world, that they’re providing cover for Republicans who are, literally, cutting America’s throat. How could these people not recognize that, and how can President Obama not recognize the value of shutting these people down? But I suppose he has his reasons, and in light of his track record, I’m not prone to second-guess him.
      .
      Again, take what he’s doing in response to the Wall Street scandal. While Obama is walking around smiling and being Mr. Nice Guy in public,Wall Street and the Republicans know who he REALLY is under that nice guy façade – Attila the Hun. While he’s being criticized by uninformed idiots as being a tool of Wall Street, Obama has some of the biggest names on Wall Street in the woodshed bent over with their pants around their ankles. He’s taking no prisoners – if you screwed the American people, you’re going down – and some of the people going down were his biggest supporters, James “Jamie” Dimon, for example, the head of JPMorgan. I bet Cornel West couldn’t tell him Obama is “a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.” President Obama is, laterally, shaking that man’s world.
      Forbes Magazine: Economically, Could Obama Be America’s Best President?
      http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamhartung/2013/05/16/economically-could-obama-be-americas-best-president/

      JPMORGAN AGREED TO PAY $13 BILLION, AND IN A FIRST, ADMIT GUILT
      According to a CBS News report:
      .
      In the past, “The banks in all the SEC cases were allowed to neither admit nor deny wrongdoing – a practice that brought criticism of the agency from judges and investor advocates.
      .
      “But in a first for a major company, JPMorgan admitted in the agreement with the SEC over the $6 billion trading loss in its London operation that it failed in its oversight. The admission could leave the bank vulnerable to millions of dollars in lawsuits. JPMorgan also reached settlements over the trading loss with the Federal Reserve, the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority.”
      .
      In response, the government in January 2012 set up a task force of federal and state law enforcement officials to pursue wrongdoing with regard to mortgage securities.
      .
      In September, JPMorgan agreed to pay $920 million and admit that it failed to oversee trading that led to a $6 billion loss last year in its London operation. That combined amount, in settlements with three U.S. and one British regulator, is one of the largest fines ever levied against a financial institution. In another case, the company agreed to pay a $100 million penalty and admitted that its traders acted “recklessly” with the London trades.
      .
      To sum up the pound of flesh that Obama is extracted from this one corporation (and one of his biggest supporters) for the abuses that it perpetrated against the American people, Obama has demanded the following:
      .
      1). Of the $13 billion, $9 billion is fines or penalties and $4 billion will go to consumer relief for struggling homeowners.
      .
      2). JPMorgan also agreed to provide cooperation in investigations against individuals within the company.
      .
      3). JPMorgan settled SEC charges in June 2011 by agreeing to pay $153.6 million and reached another such agreement for $296.9 million last November.
      .
      4). As part of the tentative agreement, JPMorgan dropped its demand for the Justice Department to take a “non-prosecution agreement” off the table, which means a criminal investigation of the bank’s conduct being handled by federal prosecutors in Sacramento, Calif., continues.
      .
      “Mounting legal costs from government proceedings pushed JPMorgan to a rare loss in the third quarter, the first under Dimon’s leadership. The bank reported Oct. 11 that it set aside $9.2 billion in the July-September quarter to cover a string of litigation stemming from the financial crisis and its “London Whale” trading debacle. JPMorgan said it has placed a total of $23 billion in reserve to cover potential legal costs.”
      .
      And they’re not through paying yet, because in spite of this “settlement” the administration is STILL coming after them with MORE charges, including criminal. And again, in another first – the head of JPMorgan, James Dimon, was one of Obama’s biggest supporters. So Obama has taken a “take no prisoners” approach – if you screwed the American people, you’re going down, no matter who you are. That’s a new wrinkle in American politics (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57608321/jpmorgan-chase-justice-department-reach-tentative-$13-billion-deal-over-mortgage-backed-securities/).
      .
      And Obama’s accomplishments go far beyond simply punishing Wall Street. In addition to getting Osama Bin Laden – again, something that Bush spent a trillion dollars allegedly trying to do – Obama, literally, saved the world from slipping into another Great Depression. While the Republicans, and many Black Obama haters, have the audacity to ask “Where’s the jobs?,” these people are conveniently failing to recall that under George W. Bush the nation was hemorrhaging 850,000 jobs PER MONTH. So compared to that, we’re experiencing a robust economy. Obama also saved the American auto industry, cut the deficit in half, and he’s providing health insurance to millions of Americans who couldn’t previously obtain it.
      .
      In addition, he’s gotten Syria to give up their chemical weapons, and persuaded Iran to allow nuclear weapons inspectors inside the country. If George W. Bush had been as effective in Iraq as Obama has been in both Syria and Iran, he could have saved the nation a trillion dollars, and saved the lives of more than a million people.
      .
      With that said, I’m going to repeat myself here, because I feel obliged to ram the following point home. Compare President Obama’s accomplishments above with the fact that Tavis Smiley and Cornel West, two of his most persistent and severe critics, traveled all across the country on a bus under the pretext of being so passionately concerned about poverty in America that they felt honor-bound to take a stand – but of course, that was BEFORE the election, and when they had books to sell. But now that the election is over, and they don’t have any books to sell, they couldn’t bring themselves to walk down the street from Tavis’ office to support the Black Friday demonstrations taking place all across the country against Wal-Mart – Tavis’ major sponsor, a member of ALEC, and the biggest abuser of the working class in America today.
      .
      And not only did they fail to attend ANY of the demonstrations taking place across the country against Wal-Mart, they didn’t even issue a statement of support. All we’ve heard coming from the Smiley/West camp are crickets – and as everyone knows, that’s extremely uncharacteristic of Cornel West, who’s renowned for being willing to trade a kidney for a sound byte.
      .
      So I’d say that just about says it all about those two – Tavis Smiley and Cornel West are two of the biggest hypocrites that the Black community has ever suffered. Their constant denigration of the most powerful symbol of Black competence in the world is a slap in the face of the Black community, and nothing short of a distraction that allows cover for the GOP to more easily pursue their agenda of cutting America’s throat.
      .
      Thus, contrary to the criticisms of the GOP, and the attempted character assassination of the president by a handful of self-serving, and/or clueless, Black “intellectuals,” Barack Hussein Obama has already accomplished enough to be remembered by history as one of our greatest presidents, and he, the Black community, and his supporters, would be well served to begin to trumpet that fact, and tell the idiots, demagogues, and poverty pimps to go take a nap.
      .
