Black Chamber of Commerce describes Obama as Hopeless
Examiner.com ^ | 8/11/13

Posted on 08/13/2013 6:43:15 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

Harry Alford, the president of the Black Chamber of Commerce, says that he failed to properly vet Obama before he voted for him in 2008. Alford says that his growing disappointment and growing suspicion of President Obama is based on his secretiveness and placing politics over policy.

“I didn’t analyze him. I read his book and he’s talking about using cocaine and all the drugs he could find and I kind of brushed through that. That should have caught my eye.”

Alford also alluded to the fact that the IRS has gone after conservative groups while giving the president's half brother exempt status for a very dubious charity, he started.

“The man’s background is not as solid as a man who wants to become president and it shows. He’s a good street politician, Chicago style. That’s what we have here. My children, who had so much hope, they are just very upset, and they have learned their lesson, too.”

Alford didn't spare some of the president's choices for high office either. He singled out Thomas Perez for scrutiny saying:

“I’ve got experience with that guy.”

“I think his appointees and some of the people of that persuasion working in the government becoming reckless, as if they can do anything that they want to do, to people, and to the nation.”

Mr. Alford bad-mouthed Barbara Boxer, now he criticizes the 0. Looks like he'll need to be disciplined by the DNC plantation owners.

From 2004 - THIS should have been widely read and dissected by the so-called “news”media.

FALSANI:
What do you believe?

OBAMA:
I am a Christian.

So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith.

On the other hand, I was born in Hawaii where obviously there are a lot of Eastern influences.

I lived in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, between the ages of six and 10.

My father was from Kenya, and although he was probably most accurately labeled an agnostic, his father was Muslim.

And I’d say, probably, intellectually I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith.

FALSANI:
Have you always been a Christian?

OBAMA:
I was raised more by my mother and my mother was Christian

FALSANI:
Do you pray often?

OBAMA:
Uh, yeah, I guess I do.

It’s not formal, me getting on my knees. I think I have an ongoing conversation with God. I think throughout the day, I’m constantly asking myself questions about what I’m doing, why am I doing it.

FALSANI:
Who’s Jesus to you?

(He laughs nervously)

OBAMA:
Right.

Jesus is an historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher.

And he’s also a wonderful teacher. I think it’s important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.

FALSANI:
Do you have people in your life that you look to for guidance?

OBAMA:
Well, my pastor [Jeremiah Wright] is certainly someone who I have an enormous amount of respect for.

I have a number of friends who are ministers. Reverend Meeks is a close friend and colleague of mine in the state Senate. Father Michael Pfleger is a dear friend, and somebody I interact with closely.

Please read the Art of War! The enemy that is destroyed from within is the easiest to defeat. They have been doing this to us for years, and now they’re finally starting to attack themselves, and so you’re attacking them as well? Kindly shut up, and let them eat their own. Support (from a distance) the people that are bringing his downfall, even if it’s from their side. Use their own momentum against them! If you keep attacking them, they’ll gang up together again just to rail against you.

Well, they’ve learned from that mistake. They are now lining up to vote for the next president just because she’s a woman

He took a page from the Nancy Pelosi playbook:

"I had to vote for him first before I could find out what kind of leader he is ..."

Hopefully this will be a watershed moment for more people than just Mr. Alford....with all the fake claims of “racism” being shouted now....Trayvon, Oprah, Missouri rodeo.....having a black leader expose BO as a liar and huckster has significant potential to awaken folks up.

Alford is a segregationist racist.

When he abandons his all black all the time racism, then he can be heard.
