Former NBA Star/Sports Show Host John Salley: Why Doesn't 'White America' Love Obama Anymore?
Newsbusters.org ^ | 9-25-09 | Stuart James

Posted on 09/25/2009 4:03:04 PM PDT by Justaham

You may have never thought you could get this political insight from a sports commentator, but former NBA Detroit Pistons star-turned-host of "The Best Damn Sports Show Period" on Fox Sports Network John Salley has defied expectations. Salley recently appeared on September 23 edition of "The Adam Carolla" podcast and asked Carolla a very pointed and insightful question.

"I have a question - do you hate Obama?" Salley asked. "Why are so many people who now hate him after just 266 days they loved him? All of white America. Not all of ‘em but the majority."

Because the empty suit is a communists and has done nothing for America except to destroy it.

Because the parroted Left Wing/MSM accusations of “racism” are false and unsubstantiated.

I cannot stand Obama in the same way I cannot stand Chuck Schumer, John Kerry or Barbara Boxer...I loathe Liberals, not just black Liberals.

This goes to show how great the political divide is. Apparently most but not all Blacks have no clue or understanding of the Conservative positions. All they get is what they get from their “leaders” and the state run media.

This can actually be said for a lot of people on the left and not just Blacks. They have no understanding of the opposition. They think we are all racists because it could not possibly be Obama’s policies. It has to be racism.

Because when you sell something you have to eventually deliver a product, not more selling.

We don’t like the product and we will not be sold any more.

"I have a question - do you hate Obama?" Salley asked.

Yup.

"Why are so many people who now hate him after just 266 days they loved him? All of white America. Not all of ‘em but the majority.

Because,as some of us did at the very beginning,many folks have recently come to understand "the content of his character".

John Salley - My estimation of Mr. Obama has not changed one scintilla since last year. Unfortunately he has just confirmed my expectations...
Expectations warranted for someone with a record of supporting any form of abortion (the only legislation that he showed any zeal in promoting when he was in an Illinois State Senator: bottling up legislation that was intended to protect infants that somehow escaped the late term abortionist's dagger); dealing in deception; promoting marxist positions; inexperienced; sitting as a 'proud' member for 20 years in a racist and blasphemous church.
No, my opinion hasn't changed... I wish he had proved me wrong.
He hasn't.

Because he has pursued policies that are bad for this nation and bad for the people of this nation. That is really the very simple answer.

Exactly.I...the post racial "Gay State Conservative"...can have *enormous* respect for someone like Dr Rice (I never have "loved",and never *will* "love" a politician or government official),as well as many others,and can *despise* individuals like Kennedy,Reid,Pelosi,Osama Obama and many others.

The only thing that distinguishes President Obama from an enpty suit is that outstanding pair of jug ears.

“I have a question - do you hate Obama?”

I would ask the question in return ... do you really want a discussion or do you just want a reason to call me a racist?

If you really want a discussion, drop the words "hate Obama" and forget about mentioning the word racist. If you do, then we can communicate.

Even blacks are starting to wakeup:

According to the Pew Research Center, the president’s approval rating nationwide is now 10 points lower than last April. Included in this is a three-point drop in his approval among blacks.

You might say a drop in approval ratings among blacks from 95 percent to 92 percent is trivial. But I say not so.

If we assume this reflects the 16 million blacks who voted for Obama last November, a three-point shift means there are about a half million blacks who now have buyer’s remorse.

It appears to be easier to play the race card rather than educate one’s self and learn what one is talking about.

Black racism gooood, white guilt gooood, affirmative action for those without the talent to fill the job they aspire to goood. Truth and knowledge baaaad.

Yep, I heard another prominent black athlete say "God could call him home now" "'cause he had seen it all with a black president in the white house". My first thought was this guy is the one out of touch with the reality of how white America thinks. It seems that very few in the black community get it. They have been sold such a bill of goods by their "leaders" they have no clue how the majority of Americans feel about race. Or why.

A lot of white guilt was assuaged, and now people wish they could have voted for a black person who isn’t a post-American idiot.

It isn’t about “White America” hating Obama, it’s about an empty suit who rules like a third world dictator, who has NOTHING positive to say about America and who’s a lazy narcisstic clown. I never thought anyone could make me look back fondly to the Clinton presidency but this a$$hat did just that.

The Liberals have done more to fan the flames of racism in the last 6 months than the Republicans and Independents have done in 60 years. It is not about the color of the man’s skin but about the nature of the man’s soul.

I think most (white)people thought they were voting for Bryant Gumbel, and they have now discovered it was Elridge Cleaver instead. I am seeing a pretty bad case of buyers remorse in South Florida right now.

“Former NBA Star..”

Not even close. John Salley was a scrub & just ended any chance or hope of employment in the NBA front office or bench.

Here’s a question—why is black America nearly 100% in his corner, come what may.

If ethnicity trumps all for you, you’re not a serious person or culture, and I don’t take you seriously. Blacks might say they’re being “loyal”. Charles Manson’s girls were loyal to him, I’ll give them that. What else you got?

Greeks, to name one ethnic group, may have been proud to have Dukakis run for President (I sure as hell wouldn’t have been if I was Greek) and no one could hold them at fault for being proud. I can’t fault blacks if they were proud of Obama for running.
But if, as an adult, you don’t bother to know, or explore, the issues or vote for a candidate you believe is best for America, then you don’t deserve to vote.

Of course, many blacks hate America, as does BO, and his policies are manna from heaven for them, or so they think. There isn’t a lot of critical thinking, or long-term thinking involved-just knee-jerk impulses. I think this blind mania has diminished them in the eyes of some, although many won’t say it.
