Interviewer to Obama: 'We Got You, We Got Your Back', "We’re still fired up."
Weekly Standard ^ | 10/10/12 | DANIEL HALPER

Barack Obama has been known to do an easy interview every once and a while, but his latest radio interview might top them all.

In the interview, conducted by Tom Joyner and Sybil Wilkes, President Obama is told, "We got you, we got your back." The two interviewers flatter the president, as he in turns gives them a pep talk, telling them not to give up.

Here's an excerpt:

BARACK OBAMA: You were around in 2008. TOM JOYNER: Oh, yeah. BARACK OBAMA: How many times did everybody say that somehow we weren’t going to win. SYBIL WILKES: Yeah. TOM JOYNER: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. BARACK OBAMA: Do you remember that? TOM JOYNER: Yeah, oh do I. BARACK OBAMA: Has everybody forgotten? SYBIL WILKES: No, Sir. TOM JOYNER: No, no. Not here. TOM JOYNER: Not here. We’re still fired up. We’re still fired up. BARACK OBAMA: As I say, as some of these emails that go around with my picture on them say, I can’t quote the entire thing, but “I got this.” TOM JOYNER: Yeah. Yeah. I know what you’re talking about. BARACK OBAMA: Alright? SYBIL WILKES: And we got you, Mr. President. TOM JOYNER: We got you, we got your back.

Good thing we have such a hard-nosed, muck-raking media, right..?

If we didn’t have that, then a BAD prez might export machine-guns to drug-dealers, or maybe start a war of distraction in the middle-east beween Turkey and Syria...!

We’re about to see weeping and gnashing of teeth on the part of these “fired up” hacks.

There’s a fund raising ad that pops up on the internet with exactly those words, asking people to click here to tell Obama, “We’ve got your back, we’re still fired up!”

Since Obama is willing to do the heavy lifting of saving Big Bird, the very least that we, the voters, can do is to GIVE OBAMA THE BIRD, early and often.

Please Freepers. I despise the slime to my core but he’s talking to a talk show host (or DJ.) We look like hypocrites when criticizing this.

Ever hear of Sean , mark, Hugh Laura rush mike etc

Well, they shoud keep it up. It will further confirm in Obama’s BIG ego mind how wonderful he is. He may decide to go golfing this weekend as he is invincible.

That worked so well for him in the last debate!

I have no sympathies for those who continue to defend the poser, especially to audiences.

They’re lefty partisans, not reporters. Who cares? It’s the clowns like Jay Carney and George Stephanopolous that pretend to be journalists while actually being partisans that have destroyed journalism in America. I stopped believing these clowns back during Vietnam. I’m 61 and have never voted for a democrat in my life while my father never voted for a republican. He was a conservative man but a union man and WW2 vet who died very young. Had he lived he would be voting with me. Of that I am sure.

Tom Joyner is Black Racist. He also had the back of Trayvon Martin, too.

Yo, Yo, Yo, Barry! Remember back in 2008 when you didn’t have to run on your record? Remember that? Things have changed.
