‘humbled and overwhelmed’ (update: he won his fight!)

ESPN: President Barack Obama called Dewey Bozella on Thursday to wish him luck in Saturday night’s cruiserweight bout with Larry Hopkins in Los Angeles.

The 52-year-old, who was released from prison in 2009 after serving 26 years for a murder he did not commit, will make his professional boxing debut at the Staples Center on the undercard of light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins’ defense against Chad Dawson.

“I was so humbled and overwhelmed at the president’s call,” Bozella told The Ring. “It brought tears to my eyes. I thanked him for taking an interest in my story. Wow. There is a lot riding on this fight now.”

“This is just getting bigger. President Obama told me that he was rooting for me. I would love to meet him in person someday.”

…. Bozella, who boxed as an amateur and while he was in an upstate New York prison, dreamed of fighting professionally while he was incarcerated….

In 1983, Bozella was convicted of the 1977 murder of a 92-year-old woman in her Poughkeepsie, N.Y., home …. There was no physical evidence of Bozella being in her home and he had been bicycling by himself miles away, but was arrested and ultimately convicted. Eventually, the case against him was overturned when witnesses against Bozella recanted their stories.

At the same time I am overwhelmed by Dewey Bzella’s strong spirit to keep going and remain positive about life. President Obama’s humanity and compassion is once again on display through that phone call.

    • October 15, 2011 at 3:27 pm

      I think its the fact that he doesn’t going around touting himself, he quietly goes about his job and being a good human.. which I think is why we always have to be prepared to speak up for him and share all that he does.

      And this story about Mr. Bozella is both heartwarming and heartwrenching.. amazing fortitude.

      Marilyn you have to remember that the Obama does’t connect with everyday people is a narrative he has been accused of since 2007. The MSM has tried their best to make Americans hate PBO. Don’t believe the madness. KEEP HOPE ALIVE!

      In the beltway bubble, only those in the bubble are “people.” In the real world our President is the most caring person in politics and he connects with people on a level the idiots can’t imagine.

      • October 15, 2011 at 4:23 pm

        Exactly, Debz. He doesn’t backslap them and pander to their egos at cocktail parties. Instead he goes out and talks to real people, who frighten the life out of beltway types. I spent most of my working life in the beltway bubble and it’s a suffocating atmosphere that drains the common sense decency of those who are in it. Many of these msm types think they truly are the kings of the world and the president should jump to their tune if we wants to get their approval. I’m very proud of the fact that our president does not descend to their level. He’s man of the true people, not the self-absorbed caricatures that populate the msm.

        October 15, 2011 at 5:09 pm

        You said it so well, Debz! As Chipsticks has documented, the President connects with ordinary people, not only in this country, but also with people around the world. It’s no wonder the media filters everything he says and does instead of showing everything to let people judge for themselves.

    • 16 L3
      October 15, 2011 at 8:37 pm

      When “they” say he doesn’t connect with people, “they” are talking about people the media values like themselves, the D.C. elite, Wallstreet and the wealthy and socially connected. “They” are not talking about average every day people because we have no value to them, but we have great value to PBO and Mrs. Obama.

      “They” are offended by that.

      I read a few months ago that some wealthy blacks said PBO does not identify with them and that he is truly a President of the people and that they were embarrassed and offended that Michelle referred to herself as a ghetto girl. I don’t recall Michelle describing herself that way but I do recall her saying she’s a girl from the south side of Chicago. But, the point is these wealthy blacks viewed such qualities in a negative light. They thought they were welcoming them into their little club but it appears the Obama’s were not interested in joining. For me though, these comments reveal how humble and self-assured our First Family is. They have such great confidence and high self-esteem that they are not overly impressed by people who value wealth, materialism and social standing above basic human decency.

      I’m amazed at how much people who have everything still require PBO’s approval or a presidential pat on the head from time to time and when they don’t get it, they can be pretty mean.

    TARGETING HAQQANI: The Obama administration is ramping up its offensive against an Afghan terror network it says is supported by Pakistan, senior officials told the Washington Post.

    Drone strikes against militants Thursday in the Pakistani city of Miran Shah telegraphed the administration’s view that the U.S. should target safe havens believed to be occupied by members of the Haqqani terror network, the newspaper reported on its website late Friday.

    U.S. Abondons Plans To Keep Troops In Iraq Past Year End

    U.S. government and military officials are sending hints that the U.S. will withdraw all its troops from Iraq by the end of 2011 in accordance with an agreement signed by the Bush administration in 2008. Earlier this week, the Iraqis rejected immunity for U.S. troops or trainers. Today, the AP reports that an administration official in Washington and a military official confirmed that the U.S. was abandoning plans to take all but about 160 Embassy protection troops out of the country where the U.S. has fought a war since 2003. The military official said the withdrawal plan would allow for future training missions upon request.

He gave a moving speech when he received the Arthur Ashe Award. His wife and daughter were there and were so very proud of him. I wish him nothing but smooth sailing from now on! Whether he wins the bout at Staples Center or not….he is now a winner in life.

Whether he wins the bout at Staples Center or not….he is a winner.

Now to have the President of the United States call you – WOW!

    I sincerely wish Mr. Dewey Bozella the best of luck and hope he wins his match. To be incarcerated for 26 years for a crime one did not commit is reprehensible. I remember watching the ESPYs and hearing about his story as he was set to recieve the Arthur Ashe award. It brought home to me how unfair the justice system can be to minorities; especially black men. Someone just has to finger you for a purported crime and another person accuses you and another and another. Sometimes the judicial players are in such a hurry to increase their rates of convictions so they get a raise or a higher profile, that they tend to forget “innocent until proven guilty” and “due process of the law” This brings to mind the Troy Davis case. Imagine if the witnesses hadn’t recanted their disgusting lies and the judicial system hadn’t been made to feel ashamed of their haste to convict; he’d still be in prison. I’m happy he received a call from President Obama wishing him the best of luck. Good wishes from one decent man to another.

    • October 15, 2011 at 5:03 pm

      It just sickens me, to hear of these kind of stories, and It happens much too often to our Black Men, and the Minorities. What a rough deal to be handed and served. I pray good blessings upon Mr Bozella. Twenty-six years for a crime you didn’t commit, makes me angry and sad, that our Justice system Is soooooooooooooooo Incompetent. This can happen to anyone, and especially people of color. Lord, I sure do thank you for President Obama, what a GREAT blessing to our Country. Thank you Lord for Choosing him, to be our LEADER. I pray for nothing but ABUNDANT BLESSINGS for Mr Bozella, and President Obama.

      This is great Fred. I hope we see more and more editorials like this one. It’s about time. The New York Times editorial was pretty scathing too. They coined a new phrase for the Republican Party obstruction – “A BREATHTAKING ACT OF ECONOMIC VANDALISM”. I hope it sticks.

      No Jobs Bill, and No Ideas

      It was all predicted, but the unanimous decision by Senate Republicans on Tuesday to filibuster and thus kill President Obama’s jobs bill was still a breathtaking act of economic vandalism. There are 14 million people out of work, wages are falling, poverty is rising, and a second recession may be blowing in, but not a single Republican would even allow debate on a sound plan to cut middle-class taxes and increase public-works spending.

      Teabaggers are pathetic haters with no life. Any article out there about PBO is usually posted on the popular repug sites and then they swarm to said articles and leave racist comments. Pay them no mind. Their world is over and they know it. The only place they have left to express their racism is through the anonymity of the internet. They’ve lost and we’ve won. And they know it. There used to be a time where they could say all the racist smack they talk on the internet out in the actual world. But they lost that battle and all they can do is act out in comments sections. How pathetic. It would actually be funny if it weren’t so pathetic.

    Poor Newt:

    “Reporting from Des Moines — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, after unveiling a 21st Century Contract with America in an attempt to breathe life into his presidential bid, grew churlish when asked how his fundraising was going in advance of a key deadline.

    “See, I knew you couldn’t resist. I’m not going to answer you,” Gingrich said, speaking to reporters in an auditorium at Principal Financial Group. “You should really go home and think about why you would even ask that today.”

    Friday is the deadline for third-quarter fundraising, and the subsequent reporting will be used to gauge the health of the campaigns.

    Gingrich was left in debt after the second quarter, which he blamed at the time on expensive consultants who had quit en masse. But at the time, he promised a “very healthy” third-quarter tally.”

    Just. Give. Up.

    • October 15, 2011 at 6:15 pm

      Newt Gingrich’s campaign just sent out its numbers for the third fundraising quarter, which show he raised $807,000 but spent almost all of it, $776,000.

      He paid off $346,000 in debt, but has $1.1 million to go. It’s not immediately clear if he incurred new debt during the quarter.

      He has $353,000 in cash on hand.

      http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1011/66048.html

      Michele Bachmann raised $3.9 million in the third fundraising quarter, but spent $5.9 million, the FEC filings show.

      Much of the spending was to win the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa in August.
      Continue Reading

      She also has $550,000 in campaign debt – less than she had been rumored to have, but more than a source close to the campaign had claimed.

      Her silver lining is that she had $1.3 million in cash on hand, and a paired-down operation, as of Sept. 30.

      But she spent heavily on fundraising consultants and direct mail during that period.

    LECH WALESA

    Activist Who Reagan Called ‘One Of The World’s Greatest Labor Leaders’ Coming To Support Occupy Wall Street

    ============================

    Solidarity hero Lech Walesa [sic] is flying to New York to show his support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters. “How could I not respond,” Walesa told a Polish newspaper Wednesday. “The thousands of people gathered near Wall Street are worried about the fate of their future, the fate of their country. This is something I understand.”
    .
    .
    Wałęsa says he’s coming to help protest economic “unfairness.” “Union leaders and capitalists need to figure out what to do, because otherwise they will have to contend with a worldwide revolt against capitalism,” he warned.

    I tweeted of these fools that it’s funny no one seems to care how many hours the Republicans spend on the golf course. I also tweeted them that the President is not a slave and no one asked them how many hrs they spent working today!

      Knoller is a douchebag. His tweets always invite the teabaggers and emoprogs to not only tweet snarky rude comments about PBO but sometimes the tweets the teabags & emoprogs tweet him use bigoted language. And he’s very comfortable tweeting them back. He needs to get off his lazy ass, put down the cheeseburgers and donuts and hit a treadmill or just walk a mile. While he’s at it, he might want to invest in a razor and get a haircut. He always looks so unkempt.

      Glad you called him, the emoprogs, and the teabags out hopefruit.

        I agree with you, maybe if Knoller would go walking, get on the treadmill or get out there and move, he wouldn’t have time to be worrying about how long the President play golf. Here’s a tweet, Mark Knoller sat on his fat ass for ten hours today. The only thing which moved were his mouth.

        I have never seen a president work as hard as President Obama. Maybe Knoller should put down that little pad and pencil that rests on his chest during the briefings and take a few minutes to watch the latest edition of West Wing Week. He might learn something about the rigors of being the Leader of the Free World. Can anyone look at the previous week and all the weeks since he got back from his working vacation in Martha’s Vineyard and say President Obama deserves some down time. He finds golf relaxing. I mean what’s the point Knoller???

        This obsession with when he plays golf, how long he plays golf, who he plays golf with is a shining example of what I like to call the media stenographers. They are devoid of any journalistic integrity. Every question they ask Jay Carney has originated in some form or fashion from the GOP.

        These tweets are just dripping with sarcasm. And the only purpose is to invite those snarky responses from the haters. They ignore all the good President Obama is doing because it doesn’t fit their narrative. So all they have left is petty nonsense about golf.

        That, my dear, is Mark Knoller’s purpose. To encourage the rude comments. How old is this man? Pathetic that he behaves like a malicious schoolgirl.

        He also forgets that’s what the weekend is for to do whatever you want. PBO deserves every bit of relaxation he can get when you consider what he deals with on a daily basis.

    • October 15, 2011 at 8:09 pm

      It’s really hard for teamos to notice anything the President does with their collective head up their collective ass except when PBO gets to finally have some time to get some fresh air with his golf buddies.

      Someone should tweet him and say..”Good on the President..he works harder than any other one I’ve known” PBO isn’t clearing brush and he’s not interested in women other than his wife so the jealous biddies need to bite back their green eyed monster.

    WOW! What a life to go through based on a faulty justice system! Apologies on behalf of some of us who have not done much to make the justice system better.

    What determination to try to carry on after such tribulations. Hoping that the future is better than the past. Good luck on your bout sir!

    Thank you President Obama for keeping this gentleman in your thoughts and letting him know you care! PBO continues to amaze me

    (SANAA, Yemen) — The United States has raised the tempo in its war against al-Qaeda in Yemen, killing nine of the terror group’s militants in the second, high-profile airstrike in as many weeks. The dead in the late Friday night strike included the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, the prominent American-Yemeni militant killed in a Sept. 30 strike. Yemeni officials on Saturday attributed the recent U.S. successes against al-Qaeda to better intelligence from an army of Yemeni informers and cooperation with the Saudis, Washington’s longtime Arab allies.

    Best of wishes, Mr. Bozellla. May you attain your dream, and may the second half of your life be filled with love, happiness, and family.

    Helloo TOD’ville! 😆 😆 It’s such a RELIEF to be able to sign on! **dancing the quick step** I was on pins and needles all day as I could not access the internet to see what you guys were doing. 😦 Finally, finally (after fiddling for ages with a new modem that I’d been ignoring in its box for weeks,) my offspring said the magic words ‘It’s working now, mom.’ Yipee! For the entire afternoon I was in fear that I wouldn’t be able to follow the MLK memorial dedication tomorrow, but all seems to be well now. 😆 😆 I’m going to see what I missed, including the march that was scheduled for today. [Chips, it’s my ‘karma’ for gloating about being all caught up last evening! ;)]
