President Obama Endorses Hillary Clinton| Open Thread

Well, you tried , Mr. President. Now it’s back to business as usual.

Who wrote this nonsense. Was it so hard to read that teleprompter, Mr. President?

Joe, “IT’S A BIG FUCKING DEAL” knows what the outcome of this game’s going to be.

The Democratic Party has left us with the notion that we have to vote for a Democratic President, based on who the Republican opponent is. Totally disregard the fact that the candidate is under FBI investigation.

And feeding us bullshit about PBO’s legacy is at stake, when the Clintons have never left the stage, but have been behind the scenes and out front, doing everything to keep & secrue that”Clinton” era.

They will NEVER, EVER, forgive us, and especially that BLACK GUY BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA for beating that ASS, and helping to move America forward. Now that’s HISTORIC.

Sad state of affairs.

    I don’t know if anyone in the Obama admin reads our blog or tweet.

    Either way, I’m going on the record to let folk know that I didn’t fall off the turnip truck, hit my head, blanked out, came to and in agreement with this sideshow from the Democratic Party.

  4. Chicas, this is the ISH that infuriates me. When someone tries to diminish another person’s hard work and call it a lie and pretend it didn’t happen. This is fighting ISH for me. Bernie Sanders didn’t have to do ISH during the Civil Rights Movement. He could have watched black folks get their ass kicked while he watched from the sidelines. But no, he chose to be all up in it. It was just as dangerous for white people joining the Civil Rights Movement as it was for black people. Some whites paid with their lives. Don’t fuck with no one else’ hard work they have contributed to equal rights for everyone and the betterment of society. I’m still angry about what the Clintons did. No moral code mofos!

  5. I’m stunned stunned stunned President Obama would endorse someone under criminal investigation and then spoon feed us the lie that she is compassionate as if we don’t know the truth about Hillary. If this is about protecting his legacy and he’s putting in the hands of someone under a criminal investigation? Fuck all the way out of here.

      It’s a double-edged sword, isn’t it, SG2? On the one hand, you’ve got someone who served as SoS, and has brought nothing but scandal to his administration. She was given an opportunity to serve the country, Americans, and all she brings is drama and scandal.

      She’s been the ANVIL, on top of GOP OBSTRUCTION. She drags down anyone who comes in contact with her. So if he’s doing this to protect his legacy, it’s not working, because this SHITTY STAIN she’s leaving behind STINKS.

      The memory of supporting this witch will be the stain on his LEGACY.

      Exactly. No compassion. She uses people for her purposes. She hems people in and stifles them with pressure until they loose their inner freedom breath. She is willing to squash people who aren’t on board with her.

      • John Lewis is another one she used to downplay Bernie Sanders activism in the Civil Rights Movement. I’m furious about that ISH. After that soundbite she took the South. John Lewis then issued a statement correcting the record but it was too late. Soundbite all across the country.

      • John Lewis clarifies comments on Bernie Sanders

        http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/john-lewis-clarifies-comments-bernie-sanders

        Civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis on Saturday clarified comments he made earlier this week questioning Sen. Bernie Sanders’ involvement in the civil rights movement. Lewis, who is supporting Hillary Clinton over Sanders in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, had said he never met Sanders.

        “In the interest of unity, I want to clarify the statement I made at Thursday’s news conference,” Lewis said in a statement from the Congressional Black Caucus PAC, which endorsed Clinton on Thursday.

        “I was responding to a reporter’s question who asked me to assess Sen. Sanders’ civil rights record. I said that when I was leading and was at the center of pivotal actions within the Civil Rights Movement, I did not meet Sen. Bernie Sanders at any time. The fact that I did not meet him in the movement does not mean I doubted that Sen. Sanders participated in the Civil Rights Movement, neither was I attempting to disparage his activism. Thousands sacrificed in the 1960s whose names we will never know, and I have always given honor to their contribution.”

        Lewis had also suggested that he had known Bill and Hillary Clinton during the civil rights era, a comment he also clarified. ”If you take a look at a transcript of my statement, you will find I did not say that I met Hillary and Bill Clinton when I was chairman of SNCC in the 1960s. My point was that when I was doing the work of civil rights, led the Voter Education Project and organized voter registration in the South in the 1970s, I did cross paths with Hillary and Bill Clinton in the field. They were working in politics, and Bill Clinton became attorney general of Arkansas in the 1970s as well. That began a relationship with them that has lasted until today,” Lewis said in the statement.

        The clarification comes as both Clinton and Sanders make aggressive efforts to court African-American voters ahead of primaries in South Carolina and other Southern states. Lewis is a prominent civil rights activist who still has scars from injuries he received on the Edmund Pettus Bridge during the march from Selma to Montgomery for voting rights. Sanders was a student organizer at the University of Chicago during the era.

        Thanks for bringing me up to speed on how Hilary Clinton misused John Lewis’ statement. Even though she knew what she and her husband had been doing at the time she allowed people to think that they were involved with John Lewis in civil rights together. So wrong of her to do that!

    Hillary Clinton is a white woman running for President of the United States of American. She is the presumptive nominee.

    She has been scandal-ridden, since the days of Bill Clinton’s presidency. Both of the them, full of drama, lies, power-grabbing, money, hungry, pomp and circumstance, etc. She’s currently under FBI CRIMINAL investigation.

    Would someone please tell me what is the difference between Hillary Clinton and any of the other white male GOP & Democratic presidential candidates with above qualities?

    What qualifies Hillary’s nomination or possible presidential win as HISTORIC?
    Being First Lady? Senator? Secretary of State? (which by the way, were UNREMARKABLE)

    And possibly President?

    All this shows me is that she worked her way up the power grid, just like most of the other male candidates. DIFFERENCE? She’s a woman.

    It’s absolutely MIND-BLOWING to even think that this woman could be the first with all that SHIT she’s carrying with her.

      I hear you, Rikyrah. you’re right. PBO has worked HARD. One of the few Dems in his party that has kept his nose to the grindstone these past 7 years. Nobody can wipe that out.

      The President has said quite clearly that his legacy is quite safe.

      And I have every confidence that he and Michelle will be just fine when they leave that Shit-hole that is the D.C. beltway.

      We know what the GOP is capable of. The Democratic leadership knows it too. But yet, it’s become a game to these people. They are choosing the status quo & POWER over the PEOPLE.

      What do you believe Hillary Clinton, along with her husband Bubba would do when they return to the White House?

      My point is the Dem Party is recycling trash to return to the White House. We know what each one of them are capable of, and who will be running things there.

      I always knew she was a fake…Never could get into her…always tried way too hard I thought…No surprise she’s sneaky as sh*t…

      This has all been quite eye-opening for Bernie I can imagine…

      That’s why she wouldn’t come out and endorse Bernie…even though they were friends and she knew his heart was good and in the right place…but she kept sneaking around …and suddenly from out of left field started trying to conveniently over-compensate with the overblown back and forth with Trump..

      She’s another one I always gave the side eye…

      My FLOTUS taught me…

      I watch my FLOTUS carefully …and I take my cues from her…

      When FLOTUS the ultimate hugger passes up on hugging anyone, it’s a clue…and a red flag..

      Just like that sneaky, backstabbing, wannabe president Tim Kane…and his fake self and false modesty..

      When FLOTUS hugged everyone including most of the republicans seated with them at the last National Prayer Breakfast…and only politely acknowledged Tim Kaine on their way in and as she and POTUS left…I knew something was up…

      Tim Kaine was so sure POTUS was going to pick him as VP…and then POTUS picked Joe instead… and even though POTUS gave him the DNC chairmanship..which he sucked at by the way…he clearly wasn’t appeased…

      I’ve been wondering since when did Tim Kaine and Hillary become such great pals that he’s everywhere effusively praising Hillary in ways he never ever even began to praise POTUS who is supposed to be his pal..
      But then he’s shortlisted as a potential V.P for Hillary and is dancing for his supper…

      These people are all opportunists of the first order..

        You and me both Ametia..

        You know, I’ve been wondering where all these suddenly highly vocal, bold and brave folks have been hiding these past 7 years…we sure could have used their help and their voices – including when Trump was actually attacking the President a few years ago …and there was not a peep…they all shrugged and told us it was all politics as usual, that it came with the territory…that the President was a big boy…but now they want to dredge it all up…not because they care or because they were even offended, it’s only to exploit it to further indict Trump and to rally our votes for Hillary…Like I’ve said before, I long ago exhausted my Trump anger …at the time Trump was birtherizing…I was so furious…and even more so because nobody seemed to be as outraged or offended…black folks like Arsenio et all were still sucking up to him, fighting each other to claim a spot on his celebrity apprentice show, and competing for his attention…Oprah gave him and his family the full spotlight by having him and his clan on her show, boosting him and giving him even more credibility by gushing about what a great father he was and what great children he had raised…Ivanka even gave Oprah a pair of earrings from her new line then, which Oprah proudly wore and advertised for her..

        And think about this…

        Suddenly, we are all women right now…because Hillary…

        But just as they were nowhere to be found as FLOTUS was mercilessly demeaned and dehumanized, watch for them all to get all mute and deaf again and scamper away into dark holes like rats once a black woman is running for president…or they’ll offer up their own preferred type of ‘black’ woman …one who is alternately able to declare herself something other than black on certain days..
