Spike Lee: Barack Obama is 'not perfect'

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.'”

When asked if Obama has lived up to his promises, Lee answered: “Look, the man’s not perfect. Who's perfect?”

Lee said he raised more than $1 million at his Obama fundraiser in January.

Obama has long been a fan of Lee. The president has said that he and his wife Michelle saw Lee's breakthrough film, “Do the Right Thing,” on the couple’s first date.

Considering that these “expectations” came from the (blue) lips of Obama himself, go for it Spike.

Blocked him - just like I would block some guy intent on raping my wife or daughter. That’s what that Marxist Maggot is doing - He’s raping our Beloved Nation. We must stop him and stop him now!

Obama’s a socialist dictator. That he’s not perfect at it is a good thing.

And once more Spike Lee has proved he’s a total zero when it comes to intellectual reasoning and a dozen fries short of a Happy Meal.
