Obama celebrates the Motown Sound
Los Angeles Times ^ | 02/25/2011 | Andrew Malcom

Posted on 02/25/2011 6:33:23 AM PST by safetysign

Today, instead of warning another country, he praised Algeria for lifting its state of emergency decree that's been in effect since Obama was in law school somewhere.

The Illinois Democrat has been chided recently for becoming something of a tardy diplomatic scold, warning many countries and foreign leaders but leaving Iran-bashing to underlings. So, Obama took the occasion Thursday to make a considerably longer statement celebrating the Motown Sound and Black History Month at another star-studded White House music party. (See complete texts of both statements below.)

Barry is courting his “black” identity seeking support for his next move.

Such a user!

Countless expensive vacations over and over; expensive parties endlessly; $200/lb steak and lobster while we’re expected to eat Kale; More rounds of golf played than any other President, EVER in just 2 years; he still smokes, drinks heavily; still rumored to be a closet homo; and commits treason every single day! In France years ago they knew exactly how to deal with pricks like Obama!

Barry has no time to deal with the nonsense going on around the world when he is prepping to hang with Smokey and the other elites!

It seems time for another massive Patriot gathering, does it not?

You’d think the first halfrican president would know the world would be watching his performance to see if he has leadership potential. Instead it’s nothing but shuckin’ and jivin’ parties. Failed leadership at its finest.

I like Motown as well as the next guy, I suppose. But boy am I tired of the whole "black thing". There is just an endless celebration of how great it is to be black. All the contributions that blacks have made. They are beautiful. They are athletic. They are musical. They are funny. They are cool. Whoo-Hoo! It is great to be black!

Me? I'm white. I suck. What the heck have white people ever done???

When Bush 43 took office the MSM were depressed that the parties ended
and longed for the return of the Clinton days. They even celebrated the "W"
being removed from every keyboard in the WH while Hillary was stealing the silverware.

I wonder how many bedbugs will be left behind when Zero gets jackbooted.

Sheryl Crow? Sheryl Crow and Motown? WTF?

As for the others I recognize an actor - Jamie Foxx, a Brit - Seal, but only one truly legendary Motown / Berry Gordy genius, Smokey Robinson.

My daughter is starting to look into colleges. She's on mailing lists, and receives a lot of brochures every day. Her focus is on small, academically challenging schools which are well outside urban areas. Guess what? Almost every such college brochure comes with a cover featuring a studious negro under a tree, in a dorm, outside the library -- somewhere, anywhere. The important thing is: we accept black students here.

It's the 21st century. We know black people are allowed to attend schools just like everyone else. It's not a big deal. There is nothing interesting or surprsing about this. They don't have to shout it at me constantly. It's just weird.

If you go to Webster’s Dictionary and look up ‘asshole’ you will see Obama’s picture.

With all the trash that visits the white house every day I am sure they will have to steam the whole place to get rid of the bedbugs and fleas and call in an exterminator to get rid of the rats left behind..

Pathetic.

The most difficult part for me is watching people continue to support and defend his reprehensible actions. I’ve lost all respect for any friends or family that have ever supported him. They’re complicit in the tearing down of this once great country. They aided and abetted an enemy, albeit domestic, in his plan to damage this country.

Blacks everywhere are rolling their eyes. Obviously, Obama's white half must have set the entertainment line up.

“...small, academically challenging schools...”

Does she like to read? A whole lot? Does she want to specialize early or leave that for an advanced degree? Have you heard of St. John’s in Annapolis? Very small school. Sister campus in Santa Fe, I believe. Either location, same program.

They don’t play the PC game or the ranking game. The educational values are very conservative, to say the least. Not politically conservative, mind you. Academically conservative. And challenging. And expensive. And the profs (except they call them tutors) are totally focused on the undergrad experience.

MOTOWN is really a state of mind but when it comes to the real MOTOWN we would need:

The Four Tops

Marvin Gaye

The Isley Brothers

Chuck Jackson

Gladys Knight

Martha and the Vandellas

The Marvelettes

The Supremes

The Temptations

Mary Wells

The Commodores

Michael Jackson

The Pointer Sisters

and quite a few others..

Jordin Sparks is an outspoken pro-life advocate and quite a cutie as well.
