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.
