Jesse Jackson goes nuts about Obama's nuts!

The nutty professor or what? No, just Jesse Jackson sounding off at the mouth. Whatever has Barack Obama done to him, except, of course, look electable? Jackson claimed Obama was "speaking down to black people" by telling them they need to take responsibility for their own lives. I am sure responsibility means being given opportunities to florish and to be successful without seeking handouts on every occasion.

The thing here is that Jesse Jackson is still in the old school of Democratic politics. He needs black people to see him as a "community leader" whereas Obama is going to be a leader for the WHOLE community. So Jackson gets niggled here and there.

His comments about Obama were intended to be private but were picked up by a Fox News microphone on Sunday. Fox News, eh? They get everywhere. Jesse should have seen that one coming! He believed the microphone was switched off. You don't say!

During his remarks, made in a casual conversation with another guest after finishing an interview, Mr Jackson said that Mr Obama had been talking down to black people, adding, “I want to cut his nuts out.” Not very becoming.

Barack Obama said, in a speech made on Father's Day in Chicago, that too many black men, "have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it." I'd say it was right to make an issue of the obvious, because without tackling the truth head-on, how is anyone going to help anyone? Jesse Jackson needs to get a grip. Good role models do indeed make for good citizens.

Jesse needs to thinks about the nuts he's talking, because he doesn't look like he's got the political balls at the moment!


Does this mean that Mr. Himeytown will not be in BHO's cabinet. I was not shocked by the statement, but I was surprised he ended his sentence with the preposition "off". Shouldn't it be I want to cut off his nuts?
