Jesse Jackson: Jealous But Playing His Role for Obama

By Debbie Schlussel
Because of other things going on that captured my attention, I did not comment, late last week, on the “colorful” comments Jesse Jackson made against Barack Obama, while he allegedly thought a microphone was off, prior to a national cable TV news appearance. But I just have to say it:
I don’t believe for a second that that wasn’t a set-up to make Obama look like a moderate/centrist and different from Jackson. Apologies for the double negative. But that’s exactly what it was–a set-up by Jackson to provide an assist to Obama, who is hurting from the radical past that betrays his GQ visage.
Why do I say it was a set-up? Well, as many cable TV news appearances as I’ve made, Jesse Jackson has made a gazillion more. And even I know that anything you say when you are miked up is picked up by someone, so I never say anything about which I care to limit the audience. Jackson knows this. Not only has he made a ton of TV appearances, but he also once hosted his own show on CNN. He knows better.


And so, I think he did it on purpose, as a favor to Barack Obama, so that once Obama’s in the White House, Jackson will be sitting pretty.
Sure, Jackson doesn’t like Obama. He will take away part of the stage for Jackson’s lifelong career of grievance theater and shakedowns. But Jackson isn’t stupid. He made those comments deliberately, wanting them to get picked up.

Both of these dolts are as transparent as they are crooked. Enough of this mud becomes public, hopefully the guilty white libs out there will snap out of they’re media induced funk.

“….hopefully the guilty white libs out there will snap out of they’re media induced funk.”
Well over 40 years they’ve been in it, especially for the phony reverend. And they haven’t awoken from it by now,they never will.So it’s long past due to take more extreme action against Jesse and the rest of his ilk.

So glad to see that you’re one who believes it was set-up, for the very reasons you listed. Like The Boy Who Cried Wolf, I stopped believing anything he said and did,long before his ’84 campaign run.He’s never been convincing,even when he was “being himself” on camera. He’s a lousy actor,on every level. The whole thing was a s fake as his claim of being a reverend( And Sharptons,and many other,lesser-known race-baiters,claiming to be reverends, across the country ).

At the present, things aren’t looking to good for the messiah. He’s slipping a bunch in the polls, and the people that were supporting him, are because of his flip-flops, having second thoughts. The DNC convention is being hyped up to be better than any “World Federation Wrestling” event. The two main stars, Barack Hussein Obama, and Hillary Clinton will be battling in the trenches, once again over her being shafted out of Michigan, and Florida voters by the DNC rules committee. Suggestion, have lots of popcorn on hand!

Debbie is absolutely right. This was all a set up to make Obama look less radical than he is. He did the same thing with Pastor Wright a few months ago. Wright was sent out to go on a speaking tour where he repeated his outrageous racist ideas. This was all pre-planned so that Obama could then hold a press conference the next day to condemn Wright and quit his “church.” This was all just a phony Obama show designed to put the Wright issue behind him. The proof is, Wright has been absolutely silent since then. His phony job is done. Obama’s suckers must love their Kool-Aid.

The Wright fight and the Phlegler episode were also set ups.
Obama never rejected Wright in the past and he was stuck with trying to denounce him – and it wasn’t working. So Wright took an insulting position to Obama in public view and gave Obama the chance to reject him anew – which he took.
The Phlegler Priest that showed up just a few weeks latter at Trinity describing Hillary as shocked a black man was stealing her show was also helping Obama. Phlegler gave Obama the way out of Trinity church.
I knew right away the Jackson episode was staged. It looked and sounded staged and Jackson would definitely know better about a hot mic.
The Alisnky trained people (Obama is) know that slander is hard to fight off and thats why they practice it. They know that to try to resist it just makes it stick more. Obama couldn’t keep trying to resist the oddball elements so he did a jujitsu. Since the public saw Wright and Trinity as antagonistic to their common sense Obama set up incidents where he could also play out he was antagonized by these things. He just triangulated and repositioned himself.
I am surprised more people aren’t suspicious of these events. I know Limbaugh thought the Phlegler epsiode was staged.
God help us if this weirdo gets elected.
