        Too true. Smiley and his shadow The Unkempt Professor are two of the biggest haters alive. They use black social, cultural and economic issues to further their own causes. Bunch of asshats.

          *The Unkempt Professor* – Ha!

          Think I watched ALL of Tavis’ State of the Black Union events on C-Span, before he did his final one. Before Pres. Obama, he seemed like he was trying to do something worthwhile, bringing together voices who were seldom heard on “regular TV.” Since his jealousy – I see it as almost personal rage against PBO – was exposed, not so much.

          And remember that one time – possibly during ’08 election – when candidate Obama “couldn’t make” the SOBU event (at least as far back as my memory goes), but offered to ask Michele to attend in his stead? That killed Tavis.

          This is for you Sir!
          A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.
          “Your son is here,” she said to the old man. She had to repeat the words several times before the patient’s eyes opened.

          Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man’s limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.

          The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man’s hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.

          He refused. Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital – the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients.

          Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.

          Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.

          Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her.

          “Who was that man?” he asked.

          The nurse was startled, “He was your father,” she answered.

          “No, he wasn’t,” the Marine replied.
          “I never saw him before in my life.”

          “Then why didn’t you say something when I took you to him?”

          “I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his son just wasn’t here. When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether or not I was his son, knowing how much he needed me, I stayed.”

    Hmmm seems to me that Chris Wallace is trying to coral his crazy colleagues with this…

    Fox News’ Chris Wallace: No, Obama Isn’t Stoking Racial Tensions With Trayvon Remarks

    The host of “Fox News Sunday” Chris Wallace rebutted the suggestion made by some conservatives that President Barack Obama was stoking racial tensions by wading so deeply into the the issue of the George Zimmerman verdict on Friday.

    “I thought he was trying to help both sides of the divide understand, and I thought he was especially moving when he talked about the new generation, talked about his daughters and the idea that the new generation, the upcoming generation, is better than people of our ages were in the sense they’re more color blind, they don’t see whites see black or blacks see whites as much of a threat,” the veteran journalist said on Fox News.

    “I thought he was trying to deal with it in a forthright fashion,” he added. “Whether it was his race speech during the 2008 campaign or other speeches, this is when the President can be most effective. The speech he gave after the senseless shooting of Gabby Giffords in Tucson about violence in our society–Boy, I sure don’t see how you can read this as in any way stoking racial tensions.”..

      so Randi is mimicking Ed Today. She just told everyone who subscribe to OFA and Whitehouse.gov to unsubscribe so that they will get the message. She wanted PBO to pardon the young lady today who was sentenced to 20 yrs. Yesterday she said that she had purchased a home in Costa Rico. I am trying to figure out her motive as to why she was so against what PBO did today. Parts of her show where she played the interview of the young lady who was molested by Zimmerman was worth listening to, but the part where she ripped PBO, not so much.

        July 19, 2013 at 6:11 pm

        Sometimes it helps to realize that bobble heads are just that: bobble heads. Randi is a radio personality who goes on air and spouts her opinion. Now I listen to her infrequently, and when I do, I take what she says with a grain of salt. It’s just like Wendy Williams. At the heart of it, she’s just a gossip who reads trashy magazines full of speculation and half truths then goes on air and repeats it. I love Wendy and I watch her show whenever I can, however infrequently that is, but when I do catch it, I take what she says with 10 grains of salt because I never forget what she is. She’s just an entertainer trying to eek out a living.

          July 19, 2013 at 6:38 pm

          Very true. Plus, I don’t believe the President of the United States grants a pardon unless he has an official pardon request before him, which he receives all the time. Sometimes, Presidents use their pardon power at the end of a year or at the end of a term, but I don’t think they generally reach out and pardon people around the country without use of an official process.

          I think the first pardon request under a state court conviction usually goes to the governor, but I have no firm knowledge if that is usual order. And, no matter how awful the 20-year sentence was, her lawyers probably would go through an appeal process first or get the pardon request to the governor after they have adequate time to prepare for it. Of course, the governor in this case is Rick Scott.

          At least I believe this is somewhat close to the norm – unless the media and other critics have changed all of the rules for President Obama, once again.

        Randi said that unsubscribing to the various right and left organizations is her “personal/private” protest. She did not encourage anyone else to do the same. I don’t get why Randi did not like the President’s speech other than she is pretty fed up with things like we all are. I am seeing her have the tendency to jump the gun on issues and not let the President do what he can do without this stupid House and Senate that can’t do shit. Randi wanted something done ASAP on the rapes in the military. She started a petition through Actblue to fire that male General that made a stupid comment about these women are a product of their environment and bring it to the military. I think that what the President has done with his appointments and what Chuck Hagel is doing is not business as usual like the past.

    ….”What I will always remember,” Rosman wrote in 2008, “is as I was leaving that party … I was approached by another guest, an established author. He asked about the man I had been talking to. Sheepishly he told me he didn’t know that Obama was a guest at the party, and had asked him to fetch him a drink. In less than six years, Obama has gone from being mistaken for a waiter among the New York media elite, to the president-elect. What a country.”

      What a country that a person automatically assumed that the only AA person there had to be the waiter. Another among millions of instances of some white people thinking that AA people do not belong. Well, the joke was on him because millions of Americans of all stripes thought twice that the place that he belonged was in the White House (I always love the irony of this name) as Leader of the free world. Karma is a bitch on steroids.

        Short phoner. Reggie said that he and PBO had many thoughtful conversations in the past. He also said that unlike PBO, he really didn’t have many experiences with profiling. His thought was that his status as an athlete insulated him from a lot of that but obviously he knew it was going on with others.

      I just saw it. I think Joy is being widely recognized as one of the smarter voices, sought on all these news shows now—-she makes their programs smarter. She has an ability similar to President Obama’s—–is able to zero in on the meat of the matter, to discard the extraneous and recognize and report on the nuggets of truth contained in any issue. Intuitive and a strong voice. Only a matter of time till she hosts her own show somewhere.

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A divided federal appeals panel in Virginia has rejected a reporter’s bid to protect a source who gave him information about a secret CIA operation.

    The 2-1 ruling Friday by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s decision. It had allowed reporter James Risen to keep his source confidential during testimony in the trial of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling, who is charged with leaking classified information.

    Prosecutors allege that Sterling gave Risen secret information that appeared in the writer’s 2006 book, “State of War.”

    The court agreed with federal attorneys that the First Amendment doesn’t shield journalists from disclosing their sources during criminal prosecutions. In a dissenting opinion, Judge Roger Gregory wrote that the majority opinion is contrary to the views of the nation’s founders.

    It is not helpful to go on twitter and elsewhere and say white people need to do this and that anymore than it is helpful for a white person to say the same thing about black people. All white people do not think alike any more than all black people and lumping people in boxes only divides us. As far as Michael Smerconish stating that he was shocked that PBO spoke however many paragraphs without a teleprompter, I have to agree with him….SHOCKED, I say….not b/c I am white and not b/c PBO in incapable of out articulating just about anyone but b/c I am shocked he was ALLOWED to speak to the American people from the heart with just a few notes to refer to…..every move, every word, every sniffle, every scratch, every facial expression PBO has is dissected, regurgitated, parsed, and twisted……so yes, I am shocked he was allowed to be just a man speaking his heart,

    • 85 hopefruit2
      July 19, 2013 at 6:55 pm

      Smerconish did not have to invoke the teleprompter – which is a meme that his been used by the RW as an insult to not just PBO but to the intelligence and speaking ability of Black people in general. I have never seen the teleprompter brought up by pundits when referring to other politicians.

      Smerconish could have just said that he was impressed by PBO’s candid, heartfelt and unscripted remarks. Many of us, like you, felt the same thing, but we didn’t invoke the teleprompter – which implies somehow that PBO has never given the impression that he could speak without a teleprompter – a falsehood. PBO has spoken many times without a teleprompter -he doesn’t need one, but just happens to use them very effectively.

    • 87 lisalovesobama
      July 19, 2013 at 6:57 pm

      He told the press he wasn’t taking any questions. Just making a statement. Smerconish’s statement was stupid. It relies on that stupid old republican belief that PBO is an empty suit whose mouth only moves because it’s tied to a TelePrompTer. PBO is 52 years old. He’s only been president for 5 years. I’m pretty sure he’s been speaking publicly without notes and a TelePrompTer for a very long time. Also, so have other presidents. Smerconish is an idiot. He uses a TelePrompTer all the time when he guest hosts. There’s nothing new or bad or interesting if someone uses one. PBO is a highly intelligent man with the credentials to back it up. He’s likely smarter than most people he comes in contact with including the idiots who identify themselves as the press. If Smerconish was shocked that such an intelligent man could form whole paragraphs in a thoughtful statement, there is something very, very wrong.

      • July 19, 2013 at 7:59 pm

        The first speech President Obama (then State Senator Obama) made on the national stage was his speech at the 2005 Dem Convention. He used a Teleprompter then because people in the modern era use electronic notes, and have been doing so for over 50 years, at least. And the words on that teleprompter were written by himself. To have a problem with a Teleprompter is to have a problem with technology and progress! Last point: President Obama is a best selling author, was a University professor and is the current President. One would have to be a fool to think he is incapable of speaking for himself – and unlike his many detractors – understanding the words that he utters. These people are exhausting and juvenile.

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Supporters of embattled Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell have established a nonprofit corporation to accept donations for his legal defense as federal and state authorities look into his ties to a wealthy campaign donor.

    Virginia Beach attorneys Stanley Baldwin and Jason Miyares and businessman Tom Knox announced the creation of the Restoration Fund on Friday.

    In a press release, Baldwin says the nonprofit was needed to help the Republican governor “clear his good name.” It will not take money from state employees or others doing business with the state.

      So many young black men cut down in their prime due to no opportunities, targets of crime, and indifference from their community. I think we need to have a S.O.S. Save our sons starting in the black/hispanic community to change the hearts, minds, and perceptions of a segment of our society that is building a billion $ industry on destroying the lives of our children.

    Agree with this—-if anyone listens to everything President Obama covered today——he addressed all concerns. He said the AA community was not naive about crime in their own communities, acknowledging that, while also making clear the reasons the Trayvon Martin case so resonated with so many—-identifying with and personalizing the discriminatory treatment so many have experienced…because of skin tone.

      So my guess is that PBO isn’t paying too much attention to Schumer. (BooHoo) – sorry if I offended any Schumer supporters, but I really didn’t like what he did in the 1990s.

        Regardless of what Chuck Schumer or anyone else might have said about Ray Kelly, it’s really not Hayes’ place to try to hijack the conversation by turning into a gratuitous attack on PBO.

        Trust me, Hayes would have found something else to bitch and whine about even if Schumer hadn’t said anything.

    The original House farm bill contained $20.5 billion in food stamp cuts, much less than the $135 billion envisioned in the House 2014 budget.

    Retirees might want to say aloha to life in Hawaii. The 65-year-old residents of this tropical paradise may actually live the longest in America, according to a new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    For the first time, the government looked at healthy life expectancy (HLE) rates for 65-year-olds, state-by-state. To determine the quality of life in those remaining years–measuring time without suffering from any illnesses and disabilities, for example–researchers combined mortality data with health status data.
    Hawaii topped the list; 65-year-olds there can expect to live another 16.2 years in healthy condition. Retiree mecca Florida along with Minnesota, Vermont and Connecticut also ranked high on the list.
    The Southern states as well as parts of the Midwest ranked towards the bottom, pointing to higher rates of obesity, smoking and heart disease as contributing factors. Mississippi performed the worst–anyone who has made it to 65 can expect to live another 10.8 healthy years. Kentucky, West Virginia, Alabama and Louisiana were not much better.

    I have an admission to make. When I was younger, but still an adult, I did many of the things that the President talked about today. I like to think I have matured and gone beyond that, but sometimes I wonder if, way down deep inside, some of the belief system that triggered those actions still remains. Anyway, that thinking led to this:

      This is what the cable “news” blowhards miss.

      There has never been a president who could initiate a truly thoughtful discussion from both sides’ perspectives until Barack Hussein Obama.

      Instead of adding to this discussion (including the painful and/or shameful elements), the MSM pretty much sticks to their White (Male) Privilege perspective.

      MSM should be SEIZING this opportunity — the first one they’ve had since this country was founded.
