Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith is endorsing President Barack Obama as part of an outreach effort by the re-election campaign to encourage continued support from the African-American community.

“I have the president’s back and it’s left up to us as African Americans to show that we have his back, also,” the coach says. “Join African Americans for President Obama today.”

This is one reason that I enjoy watching the Bears lose. Lovie calls himself a Christian and needs to wake up and smell the coffee. The Bible warns the believer to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but reprove them. The Christian left in this country is inviting a more severe rebuke on their lives and it is coming.

Let’s hope they all have Obama’s back in the same way Obama has Israel’s. If the going gets tough, they’ll bail and express their “deep caring & concern”.

What does the president’s color have to do with our vote, coach?

With a name like that, he must be black, 99% of blacks love the communist in chief, no surprise here.

With some people, race trumps everything. Lovie appears to be one of those people. He pretty much said so himself with his comments.

But if the Klan were to support the GOP nominee all hell would break loose and the GOP nominee would spend the rest of the campaign disavowing any group that would support him because of the colour of his skin, all the while the media is praising the “solidarity” of the black race. Truly Orwellian.

It wouldn’t be so bad if Smith had LEFT OUT THE RACIAL ANGLE. For example, no one begrudges John Elway’s occasional support for (invariably conservative/ pro-business) measures. But just imagine if Elway said, We European-Americans have [this candidate]’s back, etc.
