” Al Sharpton: Hold Obama to a lower standard because he’s a black man “

As for Sharpton’s claim that Obama has been held to a higher standard than white presidents, it was Obama himself, and his supporters, who set the bar high. After all, he was declared to be the first post-racial president, and he said that lobbyists would have no place in his administration. That wasn’t the media’s doings, but his own.

    “We’re so hung up on this notion that we have some obligation to help the struggling black man, you know. Cut him some slack until he can overcome these historical injustices. It’s crap. I mean, Christ, Lincoln freed the slaves, like, what? 130 years ago. How long does it take to get your act together?”

    Won’t help – Sharpton is always going to be a two bit hustler whining from the sidelines. If only he was a satisfactory counterweight to Donald Trump, this sort of thing would be encouraging. But clown Sharpton is taken seriously by nobody, while clown Trump sadly is taken seriously by enough people to scuttle Republican chances in 2012.

    it is the old, “Don’t treat Me any different unless your going to treat Me better.” Sharpton loves the double standard.

    I’m a racist bigot simply because I disagree with Sharpton, Jesse “the reverend” Jackson, and the Muslim President.

    Hey Al,

    I am holding him to a lower standard and not because he’s a black man.

    He’s not meeting that one either.

    So sorry, buddy.

    The media and the left put him so high up any standard looks lower.

    Well, he is high. Notice how he is always above the photographer looking down his nose at us.
    Hope he has a long hard fall.
    Now, being a racist ‘n all that, I’m getting on the bus. Save me a seat y’all.
    BTW, we can drag Sharpton behind the bus.

    You WILL note that Obama sinks to his waist when walking on the water…

    All Al Sharpton is, is a poor man’s NY version of a Jesse Jackson. When there’s trouble in the air, Al will be there to exploit it like he always does.
