Was he asked to come out and help Obama by smacking “Skippy” Gates?
I remember reading a report that flitted across the news a few months ago, shortly after The One ascended to power. I don’t remember if it was the AF1 crew or the helicopter crew or some other set of people who are regularly in contact with him, but Obama said that he wanted people who “looked like him.” I thought it was truly bizarre that this would be the criterion used by a US president in selecting employees.
Did Bush want only late middle aged white men as his flight crew? I doubt it.
Aside from what appears to be a suntan, Obama doesn’t look at all black, in the sense of “African American,” and I thought this was a truly strange basis for personnel selection.
“.....one of the nation’s most prominent African-American leaders......” LMAO
All my heros are cowboys.
That should give you an idea of how smart he is.
If I place my life in someone’s hands: Expertise is what I am looking for, not the flavor of the day.
