Civil Rights leader and Democratic Atlanta congressman John Lewis has turned a new cheek and has dumped supporting that shady Hillary and is rolling with our boy Barack:

Lewis said Obama’s campaign “represents the beginning of a new movement in American political history” and that he wants “to be on the side of the people.”

“After taking some time for serious reflection on this issue, I have decided that when I cast my vote as a superdelegate at the Democratic convention, it is my duty … to express the will of the people.”

It’s about time. YES WE CAN!!!

  • mr mr

    I live in ATL…this COON didn’t turn the other cheek…he was forced into it..

    the black population here told him if he didn’t vote for Obama, they were gonna vote his black azz out….the radio station gave out his home number and everything

    he wants to keep his job (seat is up for reelection)…so he CONVENIENTLY had a change of heart

  • bree

    it’s amazing that the super delegates can actually vote AGAINST the popular vote in the first place

  • rayray

    hahahha…too funny

    He didn’t have a change of heart He’s the average negrow,with just (a-little) money in his pocket’s.(thinkin the whiteman’s gonna fix all)

    He’s the negro with money that thinks that a black man CAN’T have a vision bigger than himself

    And since most of the INTELLIGENT blacks are going the way of OBAMA,he doesn’t want to be called an uncle-tom. TOO LATE BRO! Hell,i’d rather have him HAVE THE COURAGE OF HIS CONVICTIONS AND VOTE FOR MR.&MRS. 3 – STRIKES LAW.

    But since he IS a super delagate,yea,we kinda need him.

    think

    This doesn’t look good for me. It’s obvious he just wants to hold on to his job. I think he should be voted out anyway simply for being a turncoat. He didn’t support Barack when it was needed. He’s a fair weather politician.

    “the black population here told him if he didn’t vote for Obama, they were gonna vote his black azz out….the radio station gave out his home number and everything”

    Wow, I guess Michelle Obama was incorrect when she said this is the first time people are voting without regard to a person’s color. Cuz, if you’re black and don’t support Obama or dare say anything negative about him, you WILL be attacked and harassed. Black folks are such hypocrites.

  • ewww

    whether he was forced or not the statemnet he made was completely true, People of alll colors love

    Obama because he is the face of change and hope.

  • ewww

    @ silly me

    shut the hell up!

  • Lauren

    ewwww-I co sign 100% with you and Michelle Obama….There are Black Republicans and Black Hillary supporters….They can keep riding for a dead campaign but we know the truth and the truth is OBAMA!

  • dubya

    We don’t need Obama, Hillary, or McCain, we need an economist in the oval office. point blank.

    I do think that Obama will win the democratic nomination. As for the general election…not too sure.

    He needs to shut Michelle up though. Regardless of what she meant by her past remarks on finally being proud of her country, or that black people should wake up, they will be used against her and him. They will paint her out to be an angry, bitter, unpatriotic black woman.

    She thinks she is coming across as strong and intelligent, but she is actually doing more harm than good for his campaign.

    OBAMA 08

  • I'm Just Me

    He is switching it up huh?

    Obvioulsy Ole Boy is trying to maintain that job security!

    Go OBAMA!!

  • dubya

    From what I feel, Obama has few to no skeletons in his closet so they are going to attack his past words, his actions, and his wife’s actions. It’s going to get ugly–the media is going to turn on him faster than milk in the summer heat.

  • ewww

    @ Lauren

    I also agree with you. YES WE CAN!!!

  • RIP Prop Joe - Omar Oh Noooo -

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I have to agree , you are silly indeed.Really…

  • dubya

    I agree RIP. Obama has my support but he better deliver!

  • NotoriousOne

    @ Lauren…what’s good beautiful? Cold enough for you?

    There’s nothing wrong w/ being a “free-thinker” but I believe Congressman Lewis’ district voted overwhelming in favor of Obama, by a margin of 3-1. So while free-thinking is a noble endeavor, his job is to represent his CONSTITUENTS, not freely think what’s in HIS best interest.

    YES WE CAN!

    OBAMA ’08 & ’12!!

  • Rod Serling

    Submitted for your approval…

    Although he says that he will be voting for Mr. Obama, John Lewis also pointed out that for him, it was “more painful” than when he was beaten during the civil rights movement during the sixties…

    ???? “more painful” than being beaten?

    So don’t be surprised if the propensity for flip-flopping rears it’s ugly head again and, at the last minute, switches his vote yet again and pulls the lever for Mrs. Clinton.

    For anyone who would claim that switching your vote to REPRESENT the constituency that elected you to REPRESENT them in the first place is “more painful” than getting hosed, beaten and bitten by vicious attack dogs is truly, truly, in…

    …The Twilight Zone

    @ dubya…

    You can’t say that Michelle’s comments about “finally being proud of our country” is completely off base. There are still a lot of instances of racial discrimination in this country that every time it happens makes you wonder just how far have we come as a country. So while there are things to be proud of in this country, there are also more than enough things still going on that makes you say “WTF?!?!”
