    wow this guy is kind of you know LYING. good on Rev Al, still watching.. but I do listen to his radio show each day. POTUS is in the 80% favorability with DEMOCRATS last I heard.

      Not only Is he lying, but he says that PBO will be out come next election, Huh!!! I don’t think so. I realize PBO Is catching Hell from the Goprs and the Tea baggers, but he will prevail, now I just believe that. 🙂

    Oh lord.. POTUS will be standing strong and tall come January 2013 thank you very much. The GOP lies will not win this election no way no how. And good on Joe Madison too, haven’t heard of him before.

    I saw Rev Al today. He was fantastic. Especially when he told that smug laughing like Chucky GOP Teabagger Josh Trevino that the republican party will end back up in the ditch since they were the ones who took us there in the first place. Plus the way he ended his show with his epic ingenius takedown of Rush Limbaugh was a thing of beauty to witness.

      I was also proud of Rev Al’s comments at the end of his show. He realize that some folks are criticizing him. He responded to Rush limpballs, but it was directed to others who have been criticizing. I heard Stephanie and her side kicks criticizing him this morning. Thank God for Rev Al and Joe Madison today. I also read somewhere that he and Phil Griffin go way, way back. They have known each other for years.

        It is just sad to hear the petty bashing of Al Sharpton from so-called liberals!!!

        He is bursting their echo chamber bubble of non-stop anti-Obama screed and they hate it!!!

        That bitter, spiteful, childish imp David Shuster is such a sad, petty, small, pathetic, racist piece of shit!!!

        By the time this is all over, David Shuster and his ilk would have all self-destructed!!!

        Karma cannot visit David Shuster and his cohorts soon enough!!! Bastards!!!

          AH the good Rev Al is tough as nails. I just loved how he invited that old Rumball to keep dising him because it would get folks to come watch him. The Rev said “It’s easy to preach to the choir” Rush, I want some of your people here so I can educate them. I don’t have his exact words but the Rev has been through the fire and come out whole. I don’t think he is intimidated by any of these sorry folks.

          Didn’t know about David Shuster since I don’t do much radio, but it makes sense that people like Shuster and Limbaugh who can’t seem to make it on TV, are (and maybe even Stephnie Millse) are criticizing Sharpton because he IS on TV. There seems to be the same jealousy factor that propels the Anti-Obama crowd of Presidential wannabes both Republican and Democratic.

          “so-called liberals!!!”

          i was warned about those liberals way back in the ’70s, but I was not politically astute, as I hate politics. But I was warned how they are extreme leftists, and never meant minorities any good except in a paternalistic way. I am speaking of course of many white liberals. There may be some well-meaning ones, but on whole, I do not trust liberals, which is why I have always considered myself left of center, though I detest labels. I finally found someone I could feel free voting for. I’ve voted for Carter, Clinton, Gore, and Kerry. As it turns out, the finer of those four were Carter and Kerry, IMO. But none inspired me like President Obama, and if I may be so frank, it feels good that he looks like me. Anyone to have a problem with that should take a look in the mirror and think about history, and try to stand and lie to his/her own self, and say this was not important for this time. He also happened to be a damn good candidate. OBAMA/BIDEN 2012 !

            I think we all should detest and run from labels. They marginalize us, and create false narratives. I am also just left of center, but I’ll settle at this time in history for middle ground. In fact I think emphasis should be given that we will all be better accomodated if we will meet in the middle. Compromise it serves us all.

            I like to remind the most nasty voices, those imbued with racist attitudes, that they better check their geneology. My understanding is that the original first family was from sub-saharan Africa. What’s the one drop rule…..guess there are no pure ‘white’ people in this world. Suffer that all you racist scum.

      Interesting think that i have noticed…many of the white male guests who come on his show…laugh..sneer and chuckle…..it is their attempt to demean and undercut…The Rev…it is a tactic that is used to show disrespect….i am sure that The Rev is aware….

      Oooooooooo weeeeeeee…..the struggle is forever here…..

      i wonder if the Rev…picks his own guests…

    • August 11, 2011 at 9:57 am

      Lol yeahhhhhhhhhh, Rev Al, Is REv Al. You just can’t out think him, or out talk him, he’s quick with answers and rebuttals, I love It 😀 😀 😀

    I would tell the guy who was laughing an old wisdom: He who laughs last, laughs best. And I would add that there will be a lot of laughter at the President’s second inauguration.

    I had two appointments out of town today, so I missed Rev. Al and Lawrence. Those are the only two that I watch now. I like Rev. Al a lot. His voice of thoughtfulness in representing the people is so refreshing. Joe Madison is always very good. I do not have respect for anyone when laughing when someone else is trying to talk.. I think that is so rude and disgusting. However, thank God for Rev. Al. He knows how to call them on their lack or respect and lack of good manners. They will be crying when we win in 2012 with President Obama and Joe Biden. We continue to lift the President up with our prayers and good and factual truths like Rev. Al and Joe did today.

    I am sorry but the smug idiot, who was laughing mockingly, at all the positive things Rev. Al and Joe Madison said, bothered me. You could see the air of white superiority oozing through all his laughs and comments. I wish someone would have reminded him that Reagan’s poll numbers, the year before his re-election, were lower than those of President Obama. Some body should have also reminded him that no Republican presidents faced a vicious Democratic Congress whose number one mission was denying them a second term.

    This is what pisses me off about the idiots who claim to be progressives. They really don’t get it. The number one goal of Republicans, from day one of President Obama’s presidency, was to use every means necessary to deny him a second term. Sometimes I think that the holier “than thou progressives,” who have also been attacking this President from day one of his presidency, must be in cahoots with the Republicans. The more I see idiots like Josh Trevino the more I am determined to work as hard as I can for the President’s re-election.

      Nath, that is exactly the same sense I came away with!!! The smug, condescending attitude and air of superiority was on display all through!!!

      It has to be said, but this is the general attitude of most of these so-called progressives towards President Obama too!!! And for people like this guy, the only black people who will be safe from that treatment are those who join them and validate their attacks on President Obama!!!

      Rev. Al is observing first hand what these petty, vindictive bigots on the left will resort to if you happen to get in the way of their witchhunt and coordinated attempts to knee-cap President Obama!!!

      It is also amusing how in a bid to cover up their hardly veiled racist attacks, they try to invoke some random black person to hide behind. Just as David Shuster tried to do this morning when he attacked Rev. Al but “recommended” Tamron Hall for the job, because as Mr. Shuster the kingmaker without a kingdom or a hut to call his own insists, there is a need for “diversity” at MSNBC!!! LOL!!!

      But that “diversity” must be on THEIR PL terms and must have THEIR seal of approval and has to be someone willing to push THEIR talking points which prioritizes attacks on President Obaman!!! In other words a black version of David Shuster/Ed/Olbermann/Hamsher/Green!!!

      It was amusing to hear Shuster keep invoking the incident he tried to hang around Rev Al’s neck and insisting that MSNBC needed a host who had “integrity”!!!

      Hilarious when you think of their existing line-up!!!

      Three freaking hours, 5 days a week given to a guy (with no prior broadcasting experience by the way) who quit his congress seat unceremoniously and was NEVER required to explain the murdered young woman found in his office on a weekend!!!

      Yea, that’s “integrity” as defined by David Shuster and his ilk!!!

        Tamron Hall! Are you serious? Hall READS the news, period. I’ve never seen her take a position on ANY issue. She wold be fine at a local news station, but as a talk show host/commentator, No.

      Sneering, condescending, gloating and yes white superiority—–America’s bullys, the Republican template. When I see behavior, and am exposed to attitdes such as his, all I see are cowards, and people driven by fear and selfishness. Another member of my family calls it arressted developement, like a pouting toddler that can’t have things their way.

      The failures of our Congress to produce legislation and the names of those preventing policy from becoming law should be brought clearly to the attention of the American people. The House has killed 10 jobs bills, brought forward by Democrats and denied by Republicans. They are producing nothing…..that’s what our taxes are supporting, a Congress that is failing to do the work of it’s employer, the people.
      Some serious house cleaning is required, fire their do nothing butts.

    The people that go up against Rev. Al always end up looking foolish. Rev. Al is good for MSNBC. I live in Brooklyn and i have been to many rallies and marches with Mr. Sharpton. And i will again. I enjoy seeing Mr. Sharpton making those fools look foolish.

    Ugh…I saw that red hair and cringed. I used to work with him. He left the company after a short time. Funny, I never knew him to smile that much. Guess it was for the camera. Or it was how he managed to get through a debate with two black men. Whenever I worked with him, he looked at me as if I was something he had to scape off his shoe. He gave me major bad vibes. After he left, I heard he was part of Red State. My bad vibes were confirmed. 😡 🙄

      I bet it would have been a different dynamic if he had been in the same room with Joe Madison and the Good Rev. AL. Add a few more African Americans and I bet this sniveling coward would have removed the smug expression, voluntarily, from his face. Maybe he would have choked on his sarcastic, silly giggle trying to silence it. The guy is a loser, afraid of African Americans and minorities, probably women too.

      Loved the way he plastered that cheesy grin on his face as soon as he knew he was on camera. The guy reminds me of the Howdy Dowdy cookie jar my Mom kept on the kitchen counter when I was a child. I thought Howdy Dowdy’s face was so ugly it helped to keep my hand out of the cookie jar. Clowns and dummies always creeped me out.

    I have to say that I read that laughter as “nervous” laughter. I believe this guy knew he was going up against formidable debaters in Shapton and Madison, and that he was going to lose. His laughter was to convey that it didn’t bother him. But it actually made him look silly, AND more nervous than he wonted to appear.
