Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, Obama, Cuba, Hugo Chavez

Harry Belafonte - Barack Obama Needs Our Support (Didn't Mention That 2 Wars Continue)

Most other elected officials must be "HELD ACCOUNTABLE".
Barack Obama must be "HELPED".
I see how this works.

AMERICAN artistes Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover have said US President Barack Obama needs support if he has to effect the change he promised.
Addressing journalists here in Havana, Cuba on Friday evening following the inauguration of the Travelling Caribbean Film Show and offices in Cuba, Belafonte said the world is in front of a crisis.

"Many people have high hopes but little of the hope is realised, delivered as promised," he said. "President Obama raised great optimism but it is not enough for us to stand back and watch him face the many complicated problems alone. All of us must get behind him and if it is necessary force him to make, execute policies to the interests of Africa and Afro-Americans, and the marginalised peoples of the world."

Belafonte said President Obama was the hope for those who looked for a better world.

"He [President Obama] spoke strongly for change and I think he meant change for everyone," he said. "We seek that he directs that change to our interests."

Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover Open Cuba Film Office

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- American artistes Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover inaugurated on Friday the Havana office of the traveling Caribbean film festival, which is celebrating its second edition.

The opening of a venue of this project that includes traveling Caribbean film showcases dedicated to children and adolescents received strong support that will allow the further expansion of the initiative, which has already reached 31 countries in the area.

Cuban Culture Minister Abel Prieto, who attended the inauguration of the office, highlighted the talent and ethical values of the two American artists. He stressed that both artistes have paid high price for their solidarity and faithfulness to their own principles. Glover and Belafonte officially inaugurated the new venue.

Non-Racist Left-Wing Protesters Throw Rocks, Police Are Forced To Fire Tear Gas

With so many of these protesters having voted for Barack Obama in the election - He owes it to them to speak up about their cause in front of the other world leaders.

Obama At The UN - So Much For "Meeting With Our Enemies Without Conditions"

Obama aide: No UN meeting for Obama, Ahmadinejad

Will The Leftists In The G-20 Protests In Pittsburgh Target Obama?

Police seal off city centre to insulate global leaders from potential protests surrounding G20 heads of government summit

What a conundrum.

The ideological bigots who have set the standard that "Those who protest against Obama with hate filled signs are racists" now find themselves seeking to maintain their consistency as they protest the G-20, IMF, World Bank and of course - the sitting president.

I am looking forward to seeing a strong left wing protest march in which the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is attacked - just as the other 43 were.

Oh No She Didn't - Not At The Oscars!!!

Thank You Obama For Warning Us Not To Look For Jobs Until 2010 - We Won't Hold You Accountable Because You Are Honest With Us

Obama: Economy probably won't produce enough jobs until 2010

I miss an adversarial debater named "News Junkie". During the middle years of the Bush Administration I used to participate at the "" message board. NewsJunkie was a Black female, loyal Democrat who did everything possible to upend George W Bush.

I recall that the culture on the board had us seeing the "First Friday Job Report" as some lotto drawing. If the number was good - the conservatives did a "nah nah nah nah nah" to the Bush haters. When the numbers were below 120,000 the anti-Bush forces had a field day. Now that I think of it, there was another poster - "Saxman" who introduced the constraint of what a "good jobs report" was. He produced some report that said the nation needed to create 150,000 new addresses each month in order to cover our natural population growth. Thus we should be mindful of the consciousness at the time: It was not just positive jobs growth that was required but instead the growth was qualified. There needed to be growth above 150K or "Bush Failed".

My friend NewsJunkie always made the case that we were in a "Jobless Recovery". Her favorite economic source was the progressive biased "Economic Policy Institute". They constantly hammered Bush as having the WEAKEST recovery of all recoveries in recent history.

After Obama: Less Bad News Is Good News

Fast forward to today. Now we have President Obama seeking to get a pass on job growth until next year.

Does anyone suspect that if in2010 we don't see the steady 150K per month in (green) job growth that we will be hearing two things:
  • The "Bush Era Recession" was more destructive than we thought. We need you to stay with us through the 2010 elections rather than "changing horse in the middle of the stream"
  • If the Republicans did not force my Green Czar Van Jones out HE would have created about 200,000 in Green Jobs every month. Get the Republicans to back off of me so I can work for the best interests of the American people

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Barack Obama says that despite signs of economic recovery, the country will not see large-scale job growth until next year. In a wide-ranging interview broadcast Sunday on CNN's State of the Union, Obama said reversing job losses from the recession comes at the end of the recovery period, not the start.

"I want to be clear, that probably the jobs picture is not going to improve considerably -- and it could even get a little bit worse -- over the next couple of months," Obama told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King in the interview conducted Friday.

Obama explained that he believes the economy will be creating jobs through the end of 2009 -- but not enough to keep pace with population growth and to make up for steep losses in employment that occurred earlier this year.

"I think we'll be adding jobs, but you need 150,000 additional jobs each month just to keep pace with a growing population," the president said. "So if we're only adding 50,000 jobs, that's a great reversal from losing 700,000 jobs [a month] early this year -- but, you know, it means that we've still got a ways to go."

He called the issue "something that I ask every single one of my economic advisers every single day, because I know that ultimately the measure of an economy is, is it producing jobs that help people support families, send their kids to college?"

"That's the single most important thing we can do," Obama said.

Credit To Andy Young

I am stunned about Andy Young.

For a man who has made "racially tinged" campaign commercials during every election for the past 12 years - I must say that I am surprised about Andy Young's call for caution with the race card.

Before Obama When It Was Not Racist To Criticize The President

After Obama's Speech

"States Rights Are Racist" - "Obama Embraces States Rights On Pollution Control"

When Republicans reference "States Rights" it is RACIST and used for nefarious reasons. This, even though it was the racist Democrats who did these things in the past.

However when President Barack Obama makes use of "States Rights" these same people are put at ease. He, no doubt, will make use of "States Rights" to do good.

I recall when Democrats called for "States Rights" when it came to allowing states to choose their own policies for marijuana use.

Obama Magazine Cover Report

70 days after the death of Michael Jackson and he showed the power to push Obama off of every single Black magazine that was on the magazine shelf.

Attention Black Publishers - Obama Needs Your Help. August was a bit brutal on the President's poll numbers.

You guys have enough material to keep him or Mrs Obama on your front page for months:

  • Obama - We Were There When He Went To Marth's Vineyard
  • Obama - What All Americans Can Do To Protect Him From The Racists Who Disagree With Him
  • Obama Let Us On Air Force One and We Will Be Forever Loyal To Him
  • Obama - Now That I Am Unemployed I Am Thankful To Have Food To Eat On My Obama Plate Set That I Got From Walgreens

CNN Inspects Van Jones

This is as it should be.

One's dislike of Glen Beck cannot be allowed to cause people to cup their eyes and ears.

I am glad that others have picked up the chatter and have done their own inspection.

Clearly the Obama Administration did not do sufficient vetting.
OR - like a fish in water - they were comfortable.
