Now is when the political thuggin begins. Someone needs to tell the old “over the hill” civil rights gang their time is up, that old sh*t is not working. Former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young and Hilary Clinton’s camp have some things to say about our man Barack Obama:
“It is not a matter of being inexperienced,” Young told an Atlanta crowd this fall. “It is a matter of being young. There is a certain matter of maturity … You have to have a protective network around you… Leadership requires suffering. And I would like to see Barack’s children get a little older, see, because they’re going to pick on them.”
“To put a brother in there by himself is to set him up for crucifixion.” He also joked that author Toni Morrison may have been on to something when she referred to former President Bill Clinton as the “first black president.”
“Bill (Clinton) is every bit as black as Barack,” he said. “He has probably gone out with more black women than Barack.”
Young’s remarks come as Obama is battling with Hillary for support in the black community. Rev. Jesse Jackson, who had endorsed Obama, has been critical of the presidential candidate in recent weeks. Rev. Al Sharpton has said that he has not decided if he will support Obama.
An advisor from Hilary Clinton Camp states:
“Senator Obama is a fabulous orator, but we need more than words. We don’t need someone who says one thing and does another, somebody who talks a good game but doesn’t have the courage of their convictions. And on issue after issue, Senator Obama says one thing and does another.”
Al Sharpton, Messy Jesse Jackson, and Andrew Young get a big, Ho Sit Down! It’s 2007, you’re time is up!
