Fill In The Blank: President Obama Will Be Working With _________ On His 2012 Re-Election Campaign

- By Bossip Staff

We get what you’re trying to do sir, but you may want to reconsider this thing.

President Obama is making his second visit to the city in as many weeks – and is calling upon an unlikely ally to shore up the support of his political base.

Obama will be speaking Wednesday for the first time as commander in chief at the annual convention of the National Action Network and standing with its founder, the Rev. Al Sharpton – whom the President largely ignored before his 2008 election.

The symbolic speech at the Sheraton in midtown – coming just days after the President held two events in Harlem – indicates that Obama, who is battling slipping poll numbers, is trying to bolster his standing among African-Americans, political scientists said.

“It proves again that 2012 will be very different than 2008,” said Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia. “Then, Obama was very wary of the race issue and of being labeled as a ‘black candidate.'”

“But some of the enthusiasm surrounding that election has faded,” said Sabato. “He needs an injection of energy and Sharpton can provide some of that, at least in the black community.”

All we’re saying is, keep an eye on ol’ Al. Clearly he wasn’t your biggest supporter in the 2008 election, plus he’s real chummy with Jesse Jackson punk a** and we already know how he gets down

What do you think of Barry O’s move to work with Brother Al?

    Whether its a democratic or republican president in office Black americans will only get the leftovers. It is time for Blacks to cut real deals in writing with both parties and go with the best deal that will give them a Financial foot in the global world. We have to look at the future of our families first. My vote is for sale, I’m not voting for a guy with no plans to benefit my people. We have to start thinking outside the box. We know democratics take us for granted, and republicatics don’t get a she-it about us when writing new laws or changing laws that will hurt us financially. Stop giving your vote away for free people, make a deal that helps your families for today and the future.
