They must’ve had to send the teleprompter out for repair, and it won’t be operational in time for the ceremony.

I think it’s because he’s going to be speaking ebonics and doesn’t want white America to see him yukking it up with the crackheads.

These liberals are so Obama happy they cannot see his standard M.O.

He is obsessed not to be photographed with black people. He did this on his campaign, he continues to do this today.

It is nothing new.

The news media would be shut out if it was a Girl Scouts award. Obama doesn't want to answer any question right now about the AIG lynch mob circus. The whole episode—using the media, Congress and union “protesters”—was a choreographed operation by the White House. Obama’s political theater was an escalation in class warfare. When FOX News exposed the farce other news organizations had to follow.

The Obama White House has closed the press award ceremony to the press.

No whites allowed, just the Black federation of Black Community Newspapers. Doncha just love it when the administration practices integration? LOL. I would not be surprised if the Obama's changed the name of the White House to the "Black House."

I thought we were all supposed to be color blind!

It seems this is yet another double standard. We need a ‘black press’ because those darned white dudes run everything and it’s not fair. /s

Then, to top it off, Obama hides from ‘the American people’ that he is a RACIST! Some of us already knew that!

What? Is he afraid he’ll stick his foot in his mouth again and we might actually hear what a racist like him and his wife say behind closed doors?!

And Black Liberation Theology, and all the other things preached in the black churches that dont see the light of day for white people to see, hear and know.

The National Newspaper Association, despite its innocuous name, is actually an association of far-left publications that includes “Final Call” — the paper published by Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam: NNPA - Article - member papers.

And that explains why Obama doesn’t want the mainstream press at this award ceremony.

Perhaps he’s going to indulge in a little anti-white racism that wouldn’t go over well outside the room. He has to be missing his Jeremiah Wright fix by now.

BINGO....He also wants to be able to make gang signs with his hands, and bump fists with people.

I thought he was proud of his heritage.....

Fareed Zakaria is a member of the PNAC: Project for the New American Century. The PNAC advocates using the US military to overthrow foreign governments to enforce American economic interests around the globe, no matter how negative the consequences. The PNAC advocates this foreign policy because there is no check on the United States after the collapse of the USSR. After the PNAC-Iraq campaign didn’t turn out to be as cheap and easy as the PNAC and Zakaria thought it would be, Zakaria “changed” his opinion. How interesting; how convenient. A journalistic version of the Peter Principle. This author’s PNAC membership is relevant to his latest book.

To: devolve

I decided to read “The Post American World,” by Fareed Zakaria, after seeing a picture of then US Presidential candidate Barak Obama carrying the book in his hand as he deboarded a plane while on the campaign trail. I was curious to see what this presidential candidate was reading, and why he would read a book that would be predicting the decline of America, the country he wanted to head up.

Page 31 contains missinformation regarding the polar caps melting. He also incorrectly refers to Singapore as a country on page 102. I believe Singapore is a city, not a country. I could go on and on regarding the lies and untruths, but I believe you get the point.

The most outlandish assumption made by the book is that the US will no longer be a dominant force in world politics, being replaced by India and China. India? With it’s delapidated airports, crumbling roads, vast slums and impoverished villages. The India with containing several Nigerias within it? India, with 300 million people living on less than one dollar per day? India, home to 40% of the world’s poor and the country with the second highest population of HIV-positive people? That India is going to the the country to take over the world? Huh? India, whose population goes down to a river to bathe? Yea, right, they are going to take over the world. Give me a break!

All you need to know about the author’s agenda is that he is from India. That is why he proposes that India will take over the world.

The book is a joke; an agenda pushed forward hoping people like Obama will buy into it. Don’t!

Save your money. If want want a good laugh, read the book, but check it out from the library.
