Skip to comments.Spike Lee: Barack Obama is 'not perfect'
Posted on 08/10/2012 12:56:42 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Spike Lee said President Barack Obama is "not perfect," but that expectations for his first term "were way too high."
He was a savior, black Jesus, the actor-director told CNN's Don Lemon in an interview airing in its entirety Saturday. Look, I don't care who it was. Expectations were way too high.
Lee accused Republicans of gridlocking Congress to prevent Obama from winning a second term "a Congress that's solidified as saying, 'Whatever you do, we're blocking that. We're blocking, and every breath we take, we're going to do what we can that you don't get a second term. Bottom line. And if it hurts America in the process, tough business.'

Now they tell us.
Wow! Don Lemon and Spike Lee together on the set? Talk about sexual tension! I imagine they were licking lips, looking at each other all during the interview...
Spike says Obama isn’t perfect and it’s Congressional Republicans fault.
Who see the expections so high?
Reality bites, huh, Spikey?
Just like with Geo. Zimmerman’s address
What? An angry black man blaming others for their problems???? Who’d have thunk it.
Obama has failed because Obama is a incompetent boob, nothing more.
In plain English, Obama lied about what he'd accomplish. Dog ate his homework. His miracles will come in his second term...
I guess spiteful Spike forgot that the President and his party held both houses of Congress for Obama’s first two years. So all this “gridlock” came about only after Republicans won 1 house of Congress. They are going to have to come up with better excuses....
Oh wait, there is about 45% of the American electorate which will vote for Obama no matter what happens. So, no excuses are necessary for them. The question is: can Obama peel off enough gullible “independent” voters to squeak by? Perhaps, this lame excuse and distortion of history might work well enough on those type of voters.
Speaking of gridlock, how many bills have been placed on the action agenda of the Senate while Harry Reid has been the gatekeeper; and how many annual fiscal budgets has the Obama Socialist administration sent up (or down??) for debate and adoption?
Obama had to buy off congress critters AND lie about what was in Obamacare in order to get a Democrat majority to pass the sucker.
Shut up Spike you race baiting lying POS. Go eff yourself.
Without racism Spike Lee is nothing.
A no talent hack who makes race movies for idiot audiences.
Yeah, he’s a very poor political leader. He had a hard time getting his agenda through even when his party was controlling both houses, forget even trying to reach across the aisle. The only thing Obama appears to be good at is campaigning. When it actually comes to governing, he is miserable failure.
Racist. Uncle Tom. Outlyer.
I don’t think the bar is too high, I would settle for a D-.
Sheer flaming incompetence would be a step up from Anti-Free Market Marxism.
Keep in mind, Spike Lee himself said that we would start measuring years by “Before Obama” and “After Obama” (B.O. & A.O.) because that’s how great he would be. Now he’s saying expectations were too high... but he was one of the people setting those expectations!
What is he talking about. Obama is bypassing congress by signing things into law via executive order! Obama doesn’t need congress’s approval. As a matter of fact, a little thing called checks and balances don’t mean a thing to Obama. He is destroying this country with the swipe of a pen and this ass clown is still trying to blame the Republicans for the mess that his buddy has created! Please! Give me a break!
That of course is a lie.. Spike is a liar or high on the Kool Aid...
Harry Reid(D) in the Senate is BLOCKING EVERYTHING.. everything..
NOTHING gets through Harry.. budgets.. nothing..
The republican House has passed many bills... that stall in the Senate..
ZERO does not even have to VETO them.. (to show his true colors)..
The bottleneck is the Senate..
Note: You know maybe Spike IS as dumb as he looks..
...and spike lee’s film-making talents are “not perfect”...in fact, they suck. spike, ol’ boy, crawl back into a hole.

Reggie Miller says Spike & New York is a choker.
Lord Soetoro is not perfect? Blame it on his white half.
Well now, “Summer of Sam”, (without a single black character), was terrific.
Hey, I thought you went to the game.
No. I was kicked out for fightin’ with one of the players. [leaving]
Wait. Way—way—way—way—way—way—wait! Who?!
[stops] W—Reggie Miller.
Cheryl Miller’s brother?
Hey—hey—hey—wait, wait, wait, wait! What happened!
[stops again] Well, first of all, for some reason, they started the game an hour Late. And uh, I was sittin’ next to Spike Lee an’
he an’ Reggie were jawin’ at each other, so I guess I got involved. [leaving]
[same time as JERRY] —Wait, whoa—whoa—whoa—whoa!—
Well—wait—wait—wait—wait! What do you mean “involved”?!
[stops again] Well I.. ran out onto the court an’ threw a hotdog at Reggie Miller. “Involved.”
An’ they threw meee, an’ Reggie, an’ Spike out o’ the game.
So that’s it?
Well I, well I, felt, pretty bad about everything an’ uh, then the three of us, we went to a strip club. [leaves]
