Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.s mother, Jacqueline Jackson, told a Rainbow/PUSH conference Friday that her son has suffered years of enormous disappointment.
Im not ashamed to say ... he thought he was going to be a senator. He thought he was going to have a chance to run for mayor. And young people dont bounce back from disappointments like me and my husband" she said. . . .

All Whitey’s fault.
Starting with his father.
Boo Freakin Hoo!!!! Maybe he can go to work for his daddy blackmailing corporations.
Wow, this kind of conjures and completes the ultimate “full circle” image of the “entitlement” society with the notion that Congress thinks it is entitled to our earnings in the form of its power to impose taxes and restrict our freedoms.
He thought he was going to be a senator. He thought he was going to have a chance to run for mayor.
BOO HOO!! He thought this way because he grew up ENTITLED and to believe that he would get everything he wanted due to his daddy and his race. Life is tough for those who haven’t put in the blood, sweat and tears to justify what they have already received due to entitlement. I have no sympathy for this type of person.
Yep Dad and Obama didn’t give him the Senate seat
Mom, Dad, maybe you were too “Rainbow/PUSHY” with a son that simply doesn’t have the “left” stuff?
“Cry me a river.”
Said river and the consequential flooding will, of course, be blamed on AGW.
Reminds me of a song.
Poor Poor Pitiful Me.
He shoulda bought Obama's seat from Blago. Blago went to jail, but poor Jr is falling apart anyway.
Hey I’ve had to live through almost four years of non stop disappointment under Obama, don’t see me doing crack
He’s making $150K/yr...PLUS PERKS...and he’s a victim???? I’ve never made anything close to that and I fell pretty lucky.Good God...where’s my violin....I need to play a sad,sad tune.
Jesse Jr’s mom: (weep, sniff, weep, sniff) “Don’t hate my boy — he had it hard! Bambi and Blago done promised him that Senate seat! They done PROMISED! Don’t hate my boy for wanting what was rightfully HIS!”
Just think how disappointed many of us are about the outcome. Thanks Charlemagne on the Fox.
Why couldn’t he have tried, like anyone else? Are we supposed to just give it to him because he’s black and thinks he deserves it because he wants it?
It sounds like they are talking about a six year-old kid.
And how did he expect to get to be a senator, hmmm? I think that little deal might be part of his problem.
This statement by mom is priceless .. at last we have at least ONE voice that states, "This guy is certifiably incapable of being in a political office." (and of course the undertone is ... someone else put him there)
Demonrats ... your time has come and your chickens have come home to roost
IIRC, Jr. tried to buy the senate seat from Obama outright, but ran when corruption was exposed.
ValJar was involved too.
Ah! I see.. the family con game was not enough for him...
His daddy conned his way to top of the race con game..
Could be some whites are not falling for the guilt trip anymore..
He’s lucky him and his family are not prosecuted for “bunko”..
Jesse is no more a “reverend” then the most virulent atheist..
Please write about me, shekago sun times, I thought I was gonna be a senator, too! As things stand, my poor mother is dead.
wonder if Mrs. Jackson want us to hold a ‘pity’ party for her spoiled son???
DeGaulle of this ghetto trash!
This guy has essentially had everything handed to me because of the race baiting tactics of his father. Now he wants sympathy because he wasn’t given more? Pathetic.
And let us not forget Blago. I suspect JJ Jr is in the FBI files on that one. He should be happy he hasn’t been indicted yet.
Yeah, the nepotism only got him to the level of congressman. He thought the nepotism was going to get him to the level of senator or mayor. Poor baby. Perhaps he should live among those of us who advance (or not) according to merit rather than who we’re related to.
"...young people dont bounce back from disappointments like me and my husband"
Young people? This grifter is 46 years old, not old but not young either. He's old enough to be mature enough to handle lifes up's and down's. He's been a US Representive since 1995 at an average salary of $170,000 per year, not including the perks and bribes that are not reported every year.
His wife Sandi has been on the Chicago City Council since 2007 at an average salary of $110,00 per year, not including perks and bribes.
So - a combined household income of about $280,000 per year (not including perks and bribes) all paid for with taxpayer dollars and - this guy isnt mature enough to bounce back from disappointments? Well then - I say you're not mature enough to serve the citizens of Chicago and, the United States and therefore should resign.
Call me, speechless...well, nearly.
Classic case here of Mommy-give-boy-baby-teaty.
Utterly dispicable thinking here.
I’m with you, I just can’t stop crying. s/off
Is this another example of giving a trophy to all the losers too so we won’t, gasp, hurt their self esteem?
I'm sure Jesse Sr. was a disappointment to him. Most children don't want to admit their father is a shakedown grifter.
My son, is unwell, and he needs a moment to heal. And I ask you to pray for me without cease. Do for me what Ive done for you. I want you to respect that. Give us a moment. Most of all for him.
I don’t know if this was quoted out of context in the article or not, but what in the hell is this woman babbling about? Pray for her “without cease”... indeed.
Oh fiddle dee dee and somebody call the whaaamulance! People are just about as happy as they make their mind up to be. Change your outlook, change your life.
I have a feeling Jr. like his father was never held accountable for anything he did
When I read that Jesse Jackson, Jr. has had years and years of disappointment, I feel oddly pleased; although the agenda marches on at break-neck speed and he should be happy.
Jesse Jackson Jr has affirmative action psychosis. Something all minority children have to look forward to if it’s up to liberals.
You forgot to mention he owns a Budweiser distributorship.
years ago J.J. went on a rant about the lack of black representation in corporate America. One of Push’s targets was Budweiser. Buckling to pressure Bud granted the distribution rights in Chicgoland to J.J.J.
"I never wanted this for you. I work my whole life--I don't apologize--to take care of my family, and I refused to be a fool, dancing on the string held by all those bigshots. I don't apologize--that's my life--but I thought that, that when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the string. Senator Corleone; Governor Corleone.
[Michael: Another pezzonovante]
Well, this wasn't enough time, Michael. It wasn't enough time. [Michael: We'll get there, pop. We'll get there.]"

Well...well....well? This is interesting. IMO, he is about to be busted on something BIG and his mental disorder is going to be his defense and cover. Now, I’ll just sit back and wait for his dirty little secrets to become public. My guess....Blago is singing like a bird, now that he is caged or the new book of Blagojevichs brother perhaps?
The pleasure you get from life, is equal to the attitude you put into it.
Pretty much sums up how I try to live my life.
Just wow. BTW I’ve spent some very good times on the Fox.
I think you are right. Something is about to come down.
Poor Jackson Jr., your conscience must be getting to you, how does it feel to be a racist, having never attained any real accomplishments, only having extorted others with the help of your father, only judging others based on the color of their skin rather than the content of their character, damn, sucks to be you! Oh well Jackson Jr., just so you know, your father is getting old, but you’re young, his message is as irelevant as is his career, but you, there is still time to change the road you’re on, so, I just want to let you know, a little secret as it were, it’s better to go one’s entire life in fear of God and have it turn out to be a lie, than to have it end up being true and spend eternity in hell! You see, Martin Luther King Jr., he was a great man, he fought for something that he knew was right, a fight worth fighting. However, you and your father, your fight, well, it has only led to more hatred and division because you judge people based on their skin color rather than the content of their character; also, you want money for it, so you fuel hatred so as to receive more money, that’s wrong. On the other hand, Martin Luther King Jr., his fight made us all stop and think about one’s character and how silly racism is, that Sir, in and of itself, that is a fight worthy of heaven, you and your father’s fight, it’s worthy of hell!
Gee wiz, too bad, this is so sad.
Those nasty Skittles will eat a guys brain.
Hes got Impendingindictmentitis.
Gee wiz=Gee whiz
