We have a renewed effort to capture that diabolical terrorist, Osama Bin Laden:

President-elect Barack Obama wants to renew the U.S. commitment to finding al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, according to his national security advisers. Osama bin Laden remains on the run despite a $25 million reward for his capture. The Obama team believes the Bush administration has downplayed the importance of catching the FBI’s most-wanted terrorist because it has not been able to find him.

“We will kill bin Laden. We will crush al Qaeda. That has to be our biggest national security priority,” Obama said during the presidential debate on October 7.

But tracking down bin Laden won’t be easy. In May, al Qaeda released an audiotape featuring bin Laden. But U.S. intelligence officials say they haven’t had a solid lead on the terrorist mastermind’s whereabouts since late 2001, when he was nearly captured in a battle with U.S. forces near Tora Bora, Afghanistan.

Robert Baer, a former CIA field officer, told CNN he’s talked to “a dozen CIA guys who’ve been on the hunt for him, and half of them told me they assumed he was dead, the other half said they assumed he was alive, but the key word here is assume. They don’t know.”

If you want things done right, you have to do them yourself. Or rather, send a team of professional killers to do it and pay them a lot of money. Either way, if Barack says we’re gonna smoke that tall camel out of his cave and kill him, then that’s just what the hell we’re gonna do.

Obama Takes Tour of Oval Office

Posted by Bossip Staff

Obama was given a tour of his new pad by the most hated president in U.S. history:

U.S. President George Bush has met with President-elect Barack Obama at the White House for talks on major issues facing the United States. Mr. Bush and first lady Laura Bush welcomed the president-elect and his wife, Michelle Obama, Monday, shortly after their arrival from their home in Chicago. Mr. Bush and the president-elect talked briefly as they walked together outside the White House, pausing for pictures before entering the Oval Office for more extensive talks. They were expected to discuss the transition between their administrations, in their first meeting since last week’s election. The president and president-elect have struck a tone of cooperation in carrying out an orderly transition of power. Mr. Obama says the nation expects nothing less. As Mr. Bush and his successor met, Mrs. Bush gave a tour of the presidential residence to the incoming first lady, Mrs. Obama. Mrs. Bush’s chief of staff, Anita McBride says the two were expected to look at both the public areas and private family quarters. Mr. Obama will be sworn into office on January 20. The director of Mr. Obama’s transition team, John Podesta, said Sunday the president-elect could move quickly to reverse some of President Bush’s executive orders.

Not that we are experts on foreign policy or decreasing the national deficit, but we surely hope Obama did all he could NOT to listen to anything George W. had to offer in the form of advice. After all, George W. is only the worst president ever. SMH

The First Family on Election Night

Posted by Bossip Staff

Here is the First Family on election night looking at the results as they came in. Just the beautiful image of the Obama family is an attack on the ‘baby mama culture’ that is growing to be acceptable to too many of us.

Are some white folks being a little “nicer” to you since your boy Barack became President elect?

Quote of The Day

Posted by Bossip Staff

The gays are riding on Black people in California because over 70% of us voted against gay marriage on Tuesday which helped Proposition 8 pass:

“I’m disappointed in the Californians who voted for this,” said F. Damion Barela, 43, who married his husband nearly five months ago. He said he was particularly disappointed with some minority communities that voted overwhelmingly for the ban. African-Americans, for example, supported it by about 70 percent.

“To them I say, ‘Shame on you because you should know what this feels like,'” he said.

LA Times:

A lot of Obama/Yes-on-8 voters? The Associated Press exit polls show that African Americans and Latinos backed Proposition 8 in good numbers. Details here from AP:

California’s black and Latino voters, who turned out in droves for Barack Obama, also provided key support in favor of the state’s same-sex marriage ban. Seven in 10 black voters backed a successful ballot measure to overturn the California Supreme Court’s May decision allowing same-sex marriage, according to exit polls for The Associated Press.

The Reverend Speaks On Obama’s Integrity

Posted by Bossip Staff

Rev. Jeremiah Wright speaks on the media’s tactics in a report by Livesteez:

Wright will be speaking at Northwestern University tonight, delivering a “State of the Black Union” address as part of the university’s Diversity Week program. The address, titled “Redeeming & Reclaiming our Community” is at 7 p.m. at Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson St., in Evanston.

The videos, which included Wright thundering “God d@mn America!”, dominated cable television for weeks. The public outrage that followed caused the president-elect to sever ties with his longtime spiritual leader.Wright told an audience of about 200 people at the Thursday forum that he was trying to convey the anger and desire for vengeance that people felt after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He said the media failed to mention that he was a proud Christian who was raised in a Christian home.

“Their intention was to use me as a weapon of mass destruction, to tear down that man’s integrity,” said Wright, former pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

We all knew that Barack Obama was a man of greatness, but we had no idea his integrity required an entire Weapon of Mass Destruction to be torn down. We want some of what Obama’s got, because it only takes one shot of Patron for our integrity to go flying out the window. SMH at our integrity

The Set Up For Success

Posted by Bossip Staff

President Obama has selected Rahm “Rahmbo” Emanuel to be his Chief of Staff:

Rep. Rahm Emanuel accepted Barack Obama’s offer to become his chief of staff yesterday in a move that’s sure to bring a sharp edge the White House. Over the last 15 years, the hot-tempered Chicago congressman has been one of the Democratic Party’s most formidable brawlers, a political force of nature known for tabletop tirades and unabashed fund-raising. The 48-year-old Emanuel’s brashness is so legendary it inspired the character of White House aide Josh Lyman on “The West Wing.”Democratic strategist Paul Begala once described him as a “cross between a hemorrhoid and a toothache.” Republicans immediately slammed his ascension to the top White House post, according to the NY Post. “This is an ironic choice for a president-elect who has promised to change Washington, make politics more civil, and govern from the center,” House Republican Leader John Boehner (Ohio) said. But Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton – in her first public appearance since Obama was elected – said last night that Emanuel was “an excellent choice . . . He gets things done.”

It looks like our president elect is already making good on his word to bring change. He’s begun to set up his cabinet with folks that are passionate and who adamantly strive to make a difference. Yes We Can!!!!!!!!

You probably saw it live, but we feel compelled to address it. This is a video of Messy Jesse crying like a biatch when Obama became the president elect by a landslide. We can’t help but wonder if he boohoohooed out of pride that we’ve opened a new chapter with this historical moment or whether it was out of jealousy that it was not him and he still wants to rip off Obama’s sack? What do you think, Bossipers???

Since the President is indeed Black, here’s the newest from Jeezy and Nas called…”My President is Black.”

Obama’s Family in Africa Rejoice

Posted by Bossip Staff

Barack’s family went off in Africa once it was announced that their blood was elected the president of America:

KOGELO, Kenya – Barack Obama’s Kenyan relatives and Africans across the continent sang, danced in the streets and wrapped themselves in U.S. flags Wednesday to cheer for America’s first black president. Kenya will party for two days, after the president declared a national holiday.

Scenes of jubilation broke out in the western village of Kogelo, where Obama’s late father was born. A group of exuberant residents picked up the president-elect’s half-brother Malik and carried him through the village. “Unbelievable!” Malik shouted, leading the family in chanting, “Obama’s coming, make way!” Obama’s step-grandmother and other relatives also poured out of the family homestead to salute a man seen by many Kenyans as a “son of the soil.” Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki declared a public holiday on Thursday in honor of Obama. Many stayed up all night or woke before dawn to celebrate his victory. Obama’s relatives and other villagers gathered around a TV set up in a garden in Kogelo, rejoicing and pumping their arms in the air. Across Africa, many are hoping an Obama presidency will help the vast continent, the poorest in the world. Obama’s victory was also likely to seal America’s reputation in the minds of many Africans as a land of staggering opportunity. “He’s in!” said Rachel Ndimu, 23, a Kenyan business student who joined hundreds of others for an election party at the residence of the U.S. ambassador to Kenya, Michael Ranneberger, which began at 5 a.m.

“I think this is awesome, and the whole world is backing him,” Ndimu said as people raised glasses of champagne.

The jubilation is certainly called for. This is election marks the beginning of the end of limitations for people of color worldwide. The African’s have every right to celebrate the victory of their Son of The Soil. And we enjoy watching them work that, twerk that.

Pop the hood to see Obama posing with his fam and the authentic jubilee video of his Kenyan family after his win… YES WE DID!! Continue »

Sore Loser Ralph Nader Calls Obama an Uncle Tom

Posted by Bossip Staff

Green Party representative Ralph Nader, who only polled 1% (513,347) of the votes, had the audacity to pose the question of whether Obama would be an Uncle Sam for America or an Uncle Tom for the big corporations. Watch as the reporter check his pasty @ss with the quickness and let’s him know that he’s been “reduced to irrelevancy.”

A Message from The Bossip Editorial Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Starting in 2007, our editorial team decided that we would put the weight of our website which attracts over 1 million unique visitors a month behind a special transformational figure, Barack Obama. We were particularly attracted to what symbolism he and Michelle represented to the world and in particular, Black America.

It’s time for a change in the way we think about ourselves, our responsibility for our own success, and the way we look at the opportunities that exist in the world. We hope that a Barack Obama presidency will kill the dated and bankrupt “Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton” political thinking in Black America and replace it with something more in line with the times and cultural dynamics in which we live.

You won’t see a celebrity at the top of Bossip for the next 2 days. It’s all about Barack and Michelle.

We want everyone to post if they voted, where they voted, and what this election means to them.

It’s a Wrap

The major television networks are calling Ohio for Obama. It’s a wrap!

Not only will Obama win the presidency, he has changed the entire political landscape in America by putting in play states Democrats never thought were possible.
