Jesse Jackson is crying

Panning the crowd at Obama’s celebration rally in Chicago, the cameras found Jesse Jackson crying.

Maybe he was thinking of this.

Remember?

The Rev. Jesse Jackson issued an apology to Barack Obama Wednesday for making what he called a “crude and hurtful” remark about the Illinois senator’s recent comments directed toward some members of the black community.

According to Jackson, a Fox News microphone picked up comments he meant to deliver privately that seemed to disparage the presumptive Democratic nominee for appearing to lecture the black community on morality.

Jackson didn’t elaborate on the context of his remarks, except to say he was trying to explain that Obama was hurting his relationship with black voters by recently conducting “moral” lectures at African-American churches.

Jackson’s apology came a few hours before Fox News planned to air the remarks.

Speaking to CNN Wednesday, Jackson said he feels “very distressed” over the comments.

Jackson will wear his bloody MLK shirt to the Inauguration. He has been waiting for the right day to take it out of mothballs.

He’s thinking, “How am I going to make a living now? They’ll never buy my race baiting after this.”

Obama's IRS agents will still audit Jackson.

The question is whether or not Jackson goes to jail for crossing Obama.

I sure wouldn't want to be Larry Sinclair right now.

Revnum Jackssson is out of a job.

Maybe he can become the first Secretary of Race Relations, a new cabinet level position.

He’ll continue his race baiting unabated and he’ll have the ear of the President as he ferrets out the last vestiges of racism in America.

Jackson is crying because he cannot find anyone who had voting problems - so there is no one that he can claim was “dis-en-french-fried”.

That dude is just messed up - period. Him and Al Sharpton were the first to jump on board the "race train" when a couple of Duke la cross players supposedly raped that black stripper. OOPS - I didn't hear an apology from him when we all found out that the stripper made up the whole story.

Jesse and Al should be ashamed of themselves.

Obama should thank Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton. There are a number of others too. They all paved the way for Obama, training the press not to ask any questions if one of these men did something wrong.

Jackson was seen crying last night. Some people think it was his realization of life-long dreams, an equal society at last, at last.

Actually Jessie just figured out he won’t be the go to guy anymore, when it comes to Blacks.

Jackson has just received his gold watch.

I’m sure Jesse has his heart set on another shot at raiding the federal workers’ pension fund...for reparations, of course. (He’ll take a fat ‘finder’s fee’.) Naturally, Obama will make it happen.

You got that right: any corporation that donated to Obama's campaign can now tell Jackson to go pound sand.

Jesse is crying at the possibility that his offhand remarks about castrating Obama may have cost him a second shot at Africa’s diamond mines and oil as official “presidential envoy” of the U.S.

I can't tell you how many times I had to change the channel to not watch for MINUTES ON END the shots of him with those crocodile tears.

Shed because he was thinking "that should be ME"

He despises Obama

And with his finger in his mouth. What was up with that??

He will make millions of of Barack's presidency.

When asked why he hasn’t apologized to the lacrosse players, Sharpton actually said, “Well nobody’s apologized to O.J. Simpson yet either.”

He’ll be stronger because he will have the power of the justice department behind him as he did under Clinton.

Being a true born and raised East Texas whitey, I really dislike Jesse and everthing he stands for, but was watching him live in the crowd (of whites that were totally ignoring him) and if he was actually not aware of the longrange camera, he really seemed moved and his tears looked authentic.

“The winner of the Academy Award for acting is-”

The tears might have been real. Obama just took the mantle of the leading black “leader” away from Jesse once and for all. Not only that but with a black president more ears will be deaf to Jesse’s bleating.

He's also crying because he knows blacks are going to have to suck up to white people if BO wants another 4 years after this term. BO has just made all blacks Uncle Toms & Aunt Jemimahs. It's incredible how nice they are being around here. Holding doors open & offering to carry stuff for you. I heard John Bolton say today that BO owes his election to anti-war white women. I guess he wouldn't dare break his promise to the white women to pull out of Iraq immediately.

He is crying because the entire underpinning of his scam has been destroyed. The myth that black people "need" the jacksons and the sharptons in order to survive in the "racist" USA has been completely exposed.

He and his ilk with their $3000 suits and rolex watches (while crying about being oppressed)will need to scramble to find new talking points in order to sell their snake oil.

The excuse factory is CLOSED. Time to dispatch affirmative action into the ash heap of history
