I had been hopelessly conflicted about the debt ceiling issue, but thank goodness Harry Belafonte has weighed in!! He’s my go-to guy about pressing political issues. Where would I be without him??? /s

No, Harry is looking for another Hitler or Stalin. Obama has the ideology but not the skills to implement it.

Yep, the only contribution Harry’s made is to give Beetlejuice a decent soundtrack.

Belafonte is a stone-cold Communist. Unless Obama starts shooting and imprisoning his political opposition Stalin-style, he won’t have Harry’s approval. I actually paid money to see Harry perform once, which I deeply regret.

Belafonte is dead wrong.

Hussein has failed because he’s a thief who has run out of victims from whom to steal.

What kills me is who thought he had any moral courage to begin with.

Me, I look for a root cause. Harry and others like him should look into themselves and figure why they were fooled and manipulated by this demagogue. What did they think his vote present past had prepared him for; what had he really accomplished; what had he really led?

Being sly, clever and for sale doth a man make.
