JFK 2.0???

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Ted Kennedy talking about Obama yesterday:

“With Barack Obama, we will turn the page on the old politics of misrepresentation and distortion. With Barack Obama, we will close the book on the old politics of race against race, gender against gender.”

Another quote from Caroline Kenenedy:

“This kind of person doesn’t come along very often, and when they do, I think that it really is up to all of us to give it a serious look and put aside whatever plans we might have had and really get behind that kind of inspiration and power”

    Obama is what this country needs, a voice that people will believe.

    wow. at first i was skeptical, but now i think i’m going to actually witness history. barack obama is going to be the next President Of The United States.

    Why don’t the Kennedy’s have any black neighbors or black relatives in their family?

  • Fresh Perspective

    Obama has the ability to make people believe that their vote makes a difference and democracy isn’t dead. That being said, I’m leary of the Kennedy endorsement; not Caroline so much has Ted. Both democrats and republicans think he’s a joke and a crook. I’m sure Obama has smart people who will keep that Ted support in check.

    Obama in ’08!

  • SO_SURRUS

    With support like that, Obama will likely win, but still theres no tellin’ wit ye ol America

    nobody thought JFK could be president being Irish Catholic. But he did it.

    Now it’s Obama’s turn. Keep your head up people. It can happen.

    thwow. at first i was skeptical, but now i think i’m going to actually witness history. barack obama is going to be the next President Of The United States.— this is the problem— we don’t see ourselves as president so we are hesitent to support a canidate like Barrack —- Let’s break the cycle and the chains and free ourselves from all that oppresses our mind

  • WhatTheHell?

    Black people, the time has come for us to shake off the foolishness of the past and vote for the one who truly knows your struggle. No self hate, no crabs in a barrell. Just get out there and support Obama!

  • Nizzy

    i’m down with Obamah….

    Powerful endorsement from the “liberal lion.” Its so impressive to see a brother of integrity, vision, and grace. People finally see a brother who doesn’t play sports or is in the entertainment field and is successful; most of us know these brothers, but finally America can see us as we are. I believe this is the renaissance era of the black man; and I’m glad the world seems to be changing. Obama ’08!

    Pride spawns businesses, new ideas, economic stimuli..This country will be in recession by the end of the year..do we want the same lame-ass speeches and policies that got us to this recession….No we want new ideas, new blood out there..New blood brought the New Deal, New blood, brought the Harlem Renaissance, New blood brought the Civil Rights movement..Well we need New Blood to bring jobs back to the economic strapped cities…

    I think BIG O will be a great President. If we survived all the bad presidents ( i.e BUSH) we will only Prosper with the respect, and the greatness Obama will bring in 2008, and many more years to come!

  • MistaO

    One word: BIG!!!

    I agree and support Obama, however we should not, and must not forget: It is not the popular vote that determines the outcome of a Presidental election, it’s the votes in the Electorial College.

    Remember, Al Gore won the popular vote yet Bush wound up in the Oval office.

    Just something to consider.

    Must state as well, this country is well overdue for a change of status quo, however, the question is, is the country really ready for a change?

    The Democratic race is about fighting back the older racially divisive generation. If you look at Hillary’s big supporters they are all in retirement. Maya, Bill, Magic, BET Sambo are all old heads. I don’t want my mother and father’s generation running the country anymore. We got this! Yes we can!

  • MistaO

    Sorry I meant to say Electoral College.

  • Darth Paul

    People should get a grip and realize that while Obama’s a superior candidate, not a whole lot is gonna change if he’s elected. He’ll be powerless without major corporate backup and a ho if he has such backup; so corporations will continue to dictate our lives one way or another.

  • conrad

    Though I am supporter of Obaba, is it a requirement for every black man and woman to vote for him? Hilary is probably the most qualified individual for the job on both sides of the aisle…

    Two years ago, I was an intern for Harold Ford Jr., who was running for the U. S. Senate in 2006. Barack Obama came to a luncheon for us to campaign WITH us on Ford’s behalf. I met this man, and talk with him about many of the things he is saying now to the nation. Obama is legit. I almost missed the luncheon because of my family, but I got there on time. I introduced my mama to Barack Obama, and she made up in her own mind to support him. She is 51 years of age! I said that to say that some older people are smart enough to see the visions of the youth, and vote for change. Do not think all older blacks will not vote for Obama. They will if they want change and hope we can believe in.

    What exactly is Hillary’s ‘experience’? all I know is she was the 1st lady of Bill Clinton. She is a Senator of New York, but what else? I am a woman, but her woman’s right campaign does not connect to me. I cannot she how she knows how it feels to deal with student loan interest rates as a black woman. I cannot see how her being with a man who is a sponge for STDs is advocating women’s rights, actually. Hillary’s experience is only in the Senate-and she has made some votes that I disagree with! She hasn’t addressed how to deal with poverty, or how those in it can AFFORD HEALTHCARE, only how she will MANDATE IT. I do not want to be FORCED to give a fee to a healthcare I cannot get because I cannot afford it! That makes no sense!

    Look, the Clintons are representatives of business as usual, and I am tired of it. I want changes and hope. Obama is it.
