RALEIGH, N.C. — Officials say President Barack Obama is speaking at North Carolina State University when he visits the state next week.
That’s according to a report Saturday by WTVD-TV (http://bit.ly/1gtSZyi ).
On Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the president would travel to North Carolina for "an event on the economy." Carney says Obama is scheduled to visit the Research Triangle area on Jan. 15. (Source)
There are Obama haters aplenty, have been from Day One: Snooty left wingers have offered advice he should have, could have, would have followed to success if the president had just listened to his white betters in the media. Hate-filled right wing bigots have jostled to be the loudest claiming Obama isn’t a “real American,” not one of us, from somewhere else, a liar, a communist, a Muslim, the anti-Christ… and that’s just a start.
Economists have lined up on all sides to predict his policies would fail, that we were headed for depression, world economic collapse, and higher unemployment. Hawks told us the president was giving in to terror, maybe he was a terrorist himself. Doves told us he’s a mass murderer, using drones to target the innocent. (More)
When will the lies ever end? Oh when this black President is out of office. However it will not end there. Not only will he be blamed for the world’s problem while only serving 8 years but he will be blamed forever. Damn!
The Julia Mannings’ of the world the President Obama haters never mentions how the Republicans met after he was elected President before his inauguration to commit to not working with him because they wanted to make sure he was a one term President. And damn they have not gotten over it although he won not 1 time but 2 times. Damn too bad he can’t show them by winning a 3rd time. LMBAO!
In response to letter to editor Fear-mongering over debt ceiling is a crisis manufactured by Obama in the Rocky Mount Telegram.
Response: A must read!
WASHINGTON — Barack Obama and Harry Reid needed to clear the air. The relationship between the president and the Senate majority leader had been deteriorating since 2011, with Reid losing respect for Obama’s ability to negotiate with Republicans and Obama unsure if Reid had as much control over his Senate Democratic caucus as he liked to say.
So at the White House’s invitation, the two met in the Oval Office on July 9, with no staff, to talk one on one. It was a cathartic moment, one in which long-buried tensions were fully aired. Aides to the two men tell a similar story: Their boss had been losing confidence in his counterpart and wanted the meeting as a way to buck up the other. (More)
You may have missed it, but over the weekend congressional Republicans admitted that they are terrified that any Social Security cuts will lead to their defeat.
If you have been paying attention to the politics of Obama’s chained CPI offer, you may have noticed that Republicans have been running away like their hair’s on fire away from his proposal. (More)
President Barack Obama has the opportunity, in this second term, to put his feet on history. He won an election that his opponent had essentially claimed, he has been firm about that which he would negotiate on, and he has offered a progressive inauguration speech that offers up a liberal agenda, embracing Social Security and Medicare, uplifting immigrants and gay rights, and embracing ways to address inequality.

Response: I agree with this article very well written. It is sad how many will disrespect “Our” President just because they don’t like him. I too respected all the previous Presidents before him. They are not patriotic they are cowards but the real word for them is they are “ignant!”
I was thinking about something someone said to me today. They said, regarding President Obama, ‘I would never want his job, I cannot imagine the pressure he must be under’.
I was going to say I agree, but to be honest, I don’t feel bad for him. He took this job and he knew that running a country was probably the hardest thing a person could ever do. History has shown us that no matter how young you are going in, you will leave an old man. (More)
Response: Just what I expected because I knew Racist White Folks and Ignant Ungreatful Negroes would not accept a Black man as President to a certain degree. I would love to be alive years from now if there was to be more Black Presidents to follow him to see how the ratings turn out then. But to have a Black President in this season when RACISM is at an all time high and some of the most educated Ignant Ungreatful Black Folks is at an all time high. Oh this is a Dancy Poll that I did from what I have seen and witnessed in my lifetime. I don’t need any polls or anyone to tell me about what is going on in this world about some things because I am not ignant to all that my eyes have seen and my ears have heard.

Truman – 55.6%
Reagan – 50.3%

Repsonse: Okay so what do Black folks want "Our" President to say to the people in Chicago? The problem I have seen in North Carolina (Edgecombe County) there have been Black folks who have lived off the backs of other Black folks who have had organizations that suppose to have dealt with things that affect our Black Communities but they did nothing. We are the blame because we allowed them to get away with it. So now let’s hold the President accountable to save the world. Nope don’t agree with everything "Our" President says and does however I much have him in office in this season than to have someone else in office who wants to take us back. I am all for holding "Our" President accountable and I have no problem with this request.
Minister Louis Farrakhan, in a compelling address to President Barack Obama, made a plea to the president to consider coming to Chicago to see about the families of those who’ve been victimized by the astonishing epidemic of gun violence in the city over the past several years. Farrakhan, who lives in the same south side neighborhood as Obama, asked the president to do the same for the victims of Chicago that he did for the families in Newtown, Connecticut who were struck by the horribly unfortunate Sandy Hook School shooting.

I am so glad that I can think for myself and know the difference between Black folks who claim they are about making life better for Black folks and those who are just simply ignant. It is so sad that we live in a time when some Black folks just don’t understand, in denial or just simply ignant to think that we are not better off with a Black President during this season. During the past 4 years I can’t think of anything that “Our” President has done that has hurt me and other Black folks. Now don’t get it twisted I don’t agree with everything he says and does but I much rather have him in office to represent me in this season because someone else could be in the seat and try to take us back. As I listen to, read about what some Black folks have to say I have come to the conclusion that they are so ignant that they obviously want to go back. I hate that these ignant folks can’t be taken back while the rest of us continue to move forward.
Hell yeah I said it!
