Entertainer and Activist Bill Cosby held forth on CNN’s State of the Union yesterday.
Candy Crowley lobbed some easy ones over the net and Cosby returned with finger pointing at everyone except the man who is really to blame for the country’s current position: sinkhole over a cliff edge.
[box]CROWLEY: You know that there has been some disappointment in the African- American community, some disappointment in the lesbian-gay community, some disappointment for those sort of on the lower end of the economic ladder, that the president hasn’t done enough, that he got into office and went too middle of the road. Do you find anything that he has done that disappoints you?
COSBY: I’m disappointed that people who don’t look at the woes and the trouble given to this man, people blatantly speaking out against his color, wasting time, starting up new stories about whether or not he was born here, saying things that they can’t prove. And this man — I feel sometimes — not all the time — that it’s like watching — his job is — people want to make it as difficult as the one that Sisyphus had.
And then when you see that he made promises and said things, the people who were supposed to be working with him didn’t. The people who are supposed to be working — even for another party — didn’t care about the American people. They wanted to get him.
When people make statements like, “I hope he fails,” you can’t color that any other way except the way it’s said. And yes, OK, gays, lesbians, blacks, illegal aliens — pardon me — people like that are right. It didn’t happen. But look at why it didn’t happen. It’s a man trying to go about doing his job, and a ton of other people voting against him and regardless of what he says.
CROWLEY: Isn’t that kind of, though, the definition of politics and how –
COSBY: No, no –
CROWLEY: — Washington doesn’t always work with the parties?
COSBY: No, this was worse. This was worse. And everybody knows it was worse. And I think that this second term is one where we are really going to see a man who gets it, knows it. And it’s going to be better, period.
CROWLEY: So you’re confident there will be a second term?
COSBY: I am more than confident because he knows now who to say no to. He knows now who to say, I don’t care what you say, this is going to happen. And I believe he is for the people.
Bill can vent his spleen whenever he wants, but it’s pretty obvious that regardless of people’s opinions, NOONE has prevented obama from increasing our debt $5 trillion, appointing approximately 36 ‘czars’, people with inestimable power and questionable ideologies outside the purview of Congress and enacting that white whale obamacare. And what he’s done to our military and ability to defend ourselves should be illegal.
Cosby can place blame on the conservatives in Congress and talk show personalities, but obama does what obama wants.
And oh, yeah! This next term is going to rock because now obama knows how to SAY NO. I’ve got news for you, Bill; he already knows who to get around and how. Remember DEEMING bills passed? Why do you think we’re teetering off that cliff edge?
Take those Hope n’ Change glasses off, Bill. HALF of America is on government assistance and pays no income tax. The top 10% of earners in this country pay 73% of the taxes. Those are by and large the people who employ Americans… who obama wants to TAX FURTHER. Let’s drive them ALL out of the country with the highest corporate tax rates in the world!
Cosby also spoke about the Trayvon shooting, of course. Supposedly it was all about race. Guess you had to be there.
EDUCATE yourself, Bill. Using that old chestnut race as an excuse is only going to get you so far.
