Panning the crowd at Obamas celebration rally in Chicago, the cameras found Jesse Jackson crying.
Maybe he was thinking of this.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson issued an apology to Barack Obama Wednesday for making what he called a crude and hurtful remark about the Illinois senators 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 didnt 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.
Jacksons 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.
hes a joke
The winner of the Academy Award for acting is-
Revnum Jackssson is out of a job. We have shattered the race barriers in amerika.
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.”
The question is whether or not Jackson goes to jail for crossing Obama.
I sure wouldn't want to be Larry Sinclair right now.
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.
Better change the name of my blog to President-Elect Obama is a Really Swell Guy.
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”.
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.
Obama will certainly make him the Czar of race pimps in his administtration.
Maybe he was having his nuts cutoff by the obama thugs.
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.
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.
But it's a Timex that doesn't keep tickin'...
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.
Who? Jackson or Obama?
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.
i’m just glad jesse jackson is now irrelevent.
i’m just glad jesse jackson is now irrelevent.
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
It’s probably a bronze of a Rolex. LOL...
