Bill Cosby Speaks Against Those Who Hate Obama

Bill Cosby has been on the warpath as of late.  After speaking loudly gun control after the Trayvon Martin shooting, Cosby has spoken up against those who’ve engaged in unfair attacks on the president.  On CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Cosby made these remarks:

 

CROWLEY: I wanted to talk to you a little bit about politics before we talk about this amazing theater.

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 –

(CROSSTALK)

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.

    Cosby is right, Obama made history being the first black president. They used him as stereotypes as they use all blackmen for crimes,economics etc. History will absolve what white presidents like bush did and place blame on Obama who tried to rectify the greed and infighting between middle class and poor people. Wealthy people like this infighting it keeps economic issues off them. Economic warfare and solidarity against the rich is what Obama is advocating who profit from overcharging working people in every aspect of their lives.

  2. Very good interview. Mr Cosby was is right on target.

  3. @Bebee, my sentiments exactly. I totally agree with the comments made by Mr. Cosby.

  4. Mr. Cosby I could not have said it better myself!! I’ve been saying this since day 1! They won’t let Pres Obama be PRESIDENT!! He is scrutinized for any and everything he does! I am definitely behind my PRESIDENT TO the very end!!

  5. Lol. Still not voting for the president again.
