      She really is. Big supporter of PBO.

      So agree, I hope to see more of her next year. The president desperately needs more and better surrogates.

        I hope so. Hopefully we see her going into politics too. She would be a great addition to the Democratic party.

          She was just elected Attorney General of California. She is headed for the top!!

              California Attorney, Kamala Harris is a very, very strong supporter of President Obama. And he is also a very, very strong supporter of Attorney General, Harris. He was very active when she was running for the position in California. They are strong friends, and I do think that she will do a great job for our state as well as for our country. She is a beautiful spirit that we must watch for years to come.

    OFA worked hard with GOTV to get her elected. It was close but her victory shows the power of dedicated voters working for change. That’s why, despite the media narrative, I think we will re-elect Obama/Biden and give them a democratic congress. THANKS for all the clips, Chips. You are on fire! Glad your mom encouraged your invaluable work. You and BWD have been crucial for all the Obamacrats out here. (Perhaps you could encourage BWDto contribute an occasional guest post?)

    I have not figured out Micheal’s stance. I don’t truly trust him, but I thought Kamala did a great job.

      I don’t trust, respect or like Michael Eric Dyson either Dorothy…

      Part of the horrid Cornel West/Tavis Smiley clique…

      He has been extremely disrespectful and disparaging of President Obama, even though I hear he has been backtracking a tad since Al Sharpton got on MSNBC and has had him on as a contributor…

      His insistence on perpetually addressing the President as “Mr. Obama” and in the most defiant tone and manner, drips of deep-seated resentment and jealousy and even in this clip, I couldn’t really make sense of his long-winded monologue…

      The back-handed barely there acknowledgment of the President in a very begrudging way and the attempt to strip President Obama of any credit for who he grew up to be… trying to make the argument that President Obama’s personal discipline, humanity, dignity, brilliance, focus and unique strengths are only incidental to his middle class status that allowed him access to scholarships that made him the President of the United States…

      Absolutely no real acknowledgement of this most evolved President’s incredible success inspite of great adversity and uncertainty…

      Seems to want to have it both ways also. Insult and denigrate President Obama alongside his buddies, but call out the republicans and their media- controlled cronies for doing the same…

        “Part of the horrid Cornel West/Tavis Smiley clique…”

        I can’t stand him! Jealous-hearted pig! And he disrespected the FLOUS making a lewd comment about her posterior. She’s the First Lady of the United States and he spoke about her this way. Such disrespect…he and the rest of that pig sty can go straight to hades.

    I had quit watching ED due to his uninformed broadcasts. He can be supportive one minute and the one person enemy of PBO’s presidency. I thought Michael did a good job and had heard about Kamela so now I can see why she is impressive. Thank you for this clip. Thank you for this blog too.

    I have never seen or heard about Mr. Dyson disrespect of President Obama until now. He stated and has always been a supporter during the 08 campaign. Now his wife was a Hillary supporter. He is no way like Tavis or Cornel. Chi could you point me to any source of this disrespect.

    • August 8, 2011 at 3:56 pm

      I too have never ever heard of Dr Dyson, bashing PBO. He was a strong supporter of PBO, and like you said *Mae* his wife on the other hand was a supporter of Hillary. I would never think of putting dr. Dyson In the same category of Cornell West and Tavis Smiley. I’m so sorry to hear this, because I really like Dr Dyson, and I hope he remains a strong supporter of our beloved PBO.

        Dr. Michael Dyson, in my opinion and observation of him has from the beginning been a supporter in a positive way to the President. I would not place him in the company of Tavis or Dr. West regarding President Obama. I have many of his books, and he is very much into his excellent usuage of a great vocabulary in context, and I enjoy his books. However, I do think that we must remind ourselves that some of the faces that we are now seeing on the tv are people who the producers and owners of these stations find that their ratings and bank accounts can be much improved on the backs of some of these people such as Dr. Michael Dyson. However, I do believe that you have to follow Dr. Dyson’s line of messaging very closely to comprehend his thinking. I still believe that Dr. Dyson has much respect for the President, but he is reading what is up on that screen for that networks’s ratings. That is the selling out that I do not enjoy. This is where the educational, financial, and civic minded leadership need to come together and be better equip to have their banks, be the top CEO of their own companies, and have a place of power on the most powerful boardrooms in the nation. When you have those in the proper place, then you do noto have to bow down to any level to speak what is true, what you really believe in without a single blink. So those of us who are not familiar with the works of Dr. Michael Dyson, do a few reads of his books, and then form your own opinions about him. But do not waste your time or money on the likes of Tavis Smiley or Dr. Cornel West until they have a ‘little talk with Jesus moment’ to ask for forgiveness and then go to the President and ask for forgiveness as well. Then we are in business. Let us get educated about our President before we throw away a great gift in a man that you will never witness this brillian and people concerned Presidency in your life. Be strong and listen to the President when he speaks. I love you all back so very much.HZ

          Oh, if I could find it, I will show you all how he turned on the President. It was during a tv broadcast, and it may have been on Hardball sometime last year. Did you all notice how he said the R’s “rolled” the President into that debt ceiling deal. You have to listen carefully as he is a sly, fast talker always using more words than are necessary. He just started backing off some towards the end of 2010, especially during the mid-terms. Do not trust Mr. Dyson. He does what he needs to stay relevant and get air time because he’s not being listened to as he once was.

    I have always said: Keep your eyes on Kamala Harris!! She was DA here in SF for years and is very close to PBO. She was one of his first campaigners back in Iowa. I have met her and she is truly gracious, super smart, gorgeous, forward thinking, charismatic. I think she may be our next governor and then, YES – on to the White House. Her mother is from India and her father is Jamaican. She is a spectacular leader!!

    Keep your eyes on Kamala Harris!!
