Rev. Jesse Jackson: Attacks on Obama ‘Not Good for the Nation’

– 

President Barack Obama has faced “the most obstruction of any American president,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview.

“Republicans said their first objective was not to build the economy, not to provide healthcare but to defeat him, make him a one-term president,” says Jackson, founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. “So you’ve got ideological attacks.

“Congressmen have called him a liar from the well of the Congress. They’ve argued about his birth place, his birth certificate, his religion.

“These obstructionist, ugly attacks have not been good for the country,” Jackson added. “They may have been some people’s short-term pleasure, but it’s been long-term pain for the country. So he has had to climb a steeper hill facing rocks.

“He’s done so with amazing dignity and a low sense of retaliation – and that’s the good news. I hope in the next session of Congress, we will get beyond this one-term, destroy-the-president-at-all-costs mentality. It’s not good for the nation.”

Jackson, who sought the Democratic nomination for president in 1984 and 1988, said that Obama’s policies were not to blame for the near-doubling – from 26 million in 2006 to 47 million currently – of Americans now on food stamps.

“Of course not. When we came into office, we were losing – and had lost – four million jobs in four years. Losing 800,000 a month,” he said. “We’ve now gained 4.6 million new jobs. That’s a swing of nine million workers. They are out of poverty. Working women are able to make a better salary. They are working their way out of poverty.

“The automotive industry had virtually collapsed – and many had given up on it. It’s No. 1 again. Three shifts are working, and they’re hiring again in Illinois. They’re not in that number.

“A part of the poverty is driven by the fact that we had started two wars and cut taxes, and our banking collapse drove our crisis,” Jackson added. “So we’ve been in a deep hole but we’re on the way out.”

He said GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney’s recent remarks that 47 percent of Obama’s supporters were dependent on the government were “misguided and for so many working people, taxpaying citizens, an insult.

“You must remember that everybody pays taxes when you’re buying gas or buying food. We’re all paying taxes, but we should not demean each other based upon an unforced predicament, which may be the desire to work without a job. It may be student-loan debt creating credit-card debt. … Poor people or rich voters – it was not a good thing for him to say.”

As for Obama’s support among African-Americans, Jackson expects it to be “as strong or stronger” than the 96 percent who voted for him in 2008.

“There are 30 million new Americans in healthcare, 7 million are African-American. We’re all in this situation together. When we revived the automotive industry, blacks benefited, and whites and Latinos as well. When he raised Pell grants for students to help lower tuition costs, it helped us all. So we are better off today than we were four years ago.

“When he came into office, banks collapsed. Automotive industry collapsed. Healthcare – lack of access expanding. War in Iraq expanding. All of those downward trajectories have now been pointing up – and that’s a good thing.”

Jackson added that while Obama’s support for gay marriage has alienated some African-Americans, “no one can be a one-issue voter.”

“We live in our faith. We live under the law. The Constitution says all citizens have equal protection under the law.”

“What is affecting us so much today is the impact of too much violence,” he observed. “You see access to semi-automatic weapons. You see the highest suicide rate in the world. Two very unnecessary expensive wars.

“We spent $1 trillion to $3 trillion on the Iraq War. What could a trillion dollars do today? Wipe out every state budget deficit, rehire policemen, every teacher, every fireman. Put America back to work. Obama’s had to change the course – and all of the arrows are pointing upward.”

Last week, Jackson helped free two Gambian Americans – a former University of Tennessee professor and an Operation Desert Storm veteran – who were serving long prison terms for treason in the West African country, after appealing to the country’s president, Yahya Jammeh.

Jackson had a personal connection to Jammeh, who seized power in 1994 and whose regime is widely known for human-rights abuses.

“We got the word, about two weeks ago, that nine Gambians had been executed and that 38 more were going to be executed,” he said. “We immediately called the president’s office and asked for a meeting, appealing to him to please stop until we could talk. So he put on that temporary state.

“We got there on Monday and after a five-hour discussion, he agreed to an indefinite moratorium on the executions,” Jackson said.

“We found there were two Americans who were imprisoned there, not on death row – and he was good enough to pardon them. We hope that that crack will get wider because there are others there whose freedom we seek.”

Camille —

If you went to work, twiddled your thumbs, and blocked everyone else from getting anything done for two years, you’d be fired.

But this Tea Party Congress thinks they can get away with it.

They’ve blocked nearly every single item President Obama has proposed, all while pushing an extreme right-wing agenda that puts millionaire tax breaks before the middle class. Haven’t you had enough of it?

Help us send 100,000 Tea Party Pink Slips to Boehner and Cantor: Add your name here >>

It’s clear the Tea Party experiment has failed. Tell them it’s time to pack their bags:

Camille —

My favorite campaign tradition started five years ago.

It’s just incredible how much we’ve grown — from 100,000 individual donors at that time to more than 3 million in this campaign alone — and how much we’ve accomplished together.

Tonight, we’re selecting the guests for the last dinner of my last campaign. I’m looking forward to closing out this tradition the way it started: with supporters like you.

Will you be there?

It’s bittersweet, but this is the last time we’ll do this on this campaign. I’d love for you and your guest to be there. As always, your flight and hotel are on us.

Thanks,

Barack

Whoopi Goldberg: Mitt Romney ‘flushed his ideals down the drain’

Leave a comment

                       Hello Everyone:

Ever since GOP candidate Mitt Romney went over to London for the Olympics opening ceremony and subsequent travels to Israel and Poland to boost his foreign policy credentials his campaign has been going down a slippery slope ever since.
 If you been out of the loop since September 11, 2012; just GOOGLE “Romney’s response to the Libyan Embassy Crisis” and click on 47 percent highlighted in Blue in the article’s body below.
After all the pundits comments and political professional’s analysis; I believe Whoopi Goldberg’s tweets to Mitt Romney “cuts to the chase” in the article below. Full article includes comments to Ms. Goldberg’s analysis.

Whoopi Goldberg: Mitt Romney ‘flushed his ideals down the drain’

Kudos, Whoopi!

Whoopi Goldberg went on a Twitter rant Wednesday night against Mitt Romney, calling him a “confused candidate” who “flushed his ideals down the drain” and “sheds ideas faster than a snake sheds skin.”

The co-host of ABC’s “The View” wasn’t at Wednesday’s show, when the co-hosts discussed the GOP presidential nominee’s comments in a recently released undercover video that “47 percent of voters are “dependent upon government,” think of themselves as “victims” and will vote for President Barack Obama “no matter what.”

But in that video, shot at a closed-door Florida fundraiser in May, Romney also took a dig at “The View,” on which he’ll appear on in October.

“‘The View’ is high risk because of the five women on it,” Romney said at the time. “Only one is conservative and four are sharp-tongued and not conservative, Whoopi Goldberg in particular.  Although the last time I was on the show, she said to me, ‘You know what? I think I could vote for you.’ And I said, ‘I must have done something really wrong.'”

So Goldberg fired back via Twitter. Take a look, after the jump:

This still goes on…. Kansas Considers Removing The President From Ballot After Birther Challenge

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:

I thought this headline was a joke,  Then I sadly realized it was not a joke. Don’t ever feel comfortable with the recent gains made by President Obama in the latest polls or think the constant mistakes the GOP are making on a weekly basis will doom them by November 6, 2012.  
The extremists on the Right are treating this election as if their very lives (not to be confused with lifestyle)depends on the defeat of President Obama.
For those of us that believe President Obama should be re-elected; we must also act as if our very lives depend on defeating the challenger Mitt Romney; however, in the manner and with the temperament that President Obama has exhibited over the past four years.
There were hundreds of replies/comments to this article following the article.  If you can’t see them all click on this link below.
– 
I found this cartoon which is characteristic of the article and the GOP.  One need a laugh after this craziness.
Let’s due our President proud.  There are about 3 weeks left to register to vote. To take action;
Your purchase of 2012 Obama Campaign is consider a donation.  The MADE in AMERICA Coffee Mugs(attached photo) was released with a copy of the President’s birth certificate on it last year after President Obama Trumped  “The Donald” and got him out of his hair at the 2011 White House Correspondence Dinner regarding the “Birther” issue.

Kansas Considers Removing The President From Ballot After Birther Challenge

September 14th, 2012 2:31 pmHenry Decker

UPDATE: Joe Montgomery has withdrawn his objection, citing the public reation to his complaint.

Kansas Secretary of State and Mitt Romney adviser Kris Kobach is considering removing President Barack Obama from his state’s ballot in November, in response to the lingering conspiracy theory about Obama’s birth certificate.

The Kansas State Objections Board — which consists of Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt, and Lieutenant Governor Jeff Coyer — have delayed a decision on a complaint from a Kansas resident claiming that Obama is ineligible to run for president until Monday.

“There is substantial evidence showing that much of Mr. Obama’s alleged birth certificates have been forged or doctored, and have not been confirmed as legally valid, true and accurate,” the complaint reads, according to The Topeka Capital-Journal.

There is, of course, no serious evidence that Obama’s birth certificate has been forged — but that hasn’t stopped Kobach from seriously considering the challenge

“I don’t think it’s a frivolous objection,” Kobach told the Capital-Journal. “I do think the factual record could be supplemented.”

The board is now sending requests to officials in Hawaii, Arizona, and Mississippi to secure copies of President Obama’s birth records, and will reconvene on Monday to discuss the findings.

In addition to serving as Kansas Secretary of State, Kobach has advised Republican nominee Mitt Romney in both of his presidential runs. Kobach, a noted extremist on immigration issues, wrote Arizona and Alabama’s hardline anti-immigration laws, and also served as chief legal counsel to the Immigration Reform Law Institute. That is the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. a hate group which, according to its founder, strives to preserve “a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.”

When Kobach endorsed Romney in January 2012, Romney gushed that “I’m so proud to earn Kris’s support.” After this latest embarrassment, one wonders if he still feels that way.

    Disgusting.A new low in the GOP attempt to steal the election.

  • It is, but there is no need to get upset. In fact, we should rejoice because in their zest to deny a great American President the right to run for re-election they are digging their own grave. Don’t be surprised if even moderate Republicans are sickened by the tactics the Tea Party is using to steal an election. They may not vote for a Democrat, but they may be so disgusted by what they see that they may sit this one out.
    Our political campaigns are always spirited, things are often said that should never be said, but what Kansas is doing goes well beyond name calling, distortion or opportunism, and most Americans understand that.

    (Edited by author 2 days ago)

  • As long as democrats don’t take this election for granted and do turn out the vote , we will hold on to the White House and maybe take back the House

  • That would be nice, unfortunately there are not enough Tea Party members running for re-election and the GOP majority in the House is so large that getting the House back is a virtual impossibility. I think the best we can hope for is reduce their majority and send an unmistakable message to the radicals that have obstructed progress and caused so much pain to our middle class and the poor.

  • you are so right Dominick Vila that is the truth well said
