National Black Chamber of
Commerce President: Barack
Obama ‘Made a Fool Out of Me’

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/4/2013 9:35:33 PM

National Black Chamber of Commerce President Harry C. Alford blasted President Barack Obama today on the Andrea Tantaros Show. Alford says that he supported Obama’s election 2008, but now says that Obama “made a fool out of me.” Alford says that many Americans, including prominent citizens like radio host Tom Joyner, explicitly voted for Obama because he is black. Alford says that he joined in and voted for Obama to be the first black president, but now recognizes electing Obama was a huge mistake. He slammed Obama for continually campaigning rather than leading, and for failing

Comments:
Where was he before the last election? The article doesn´t state whether he voted for him last time. 0bama doesn´t care what he thinks. He won. He wants to finish the destruction he started in his first term.

Don´t feel too bad, Mr. Alford: he fooled a lot of people - black and white. The point is what we do about it now.

I suspect Alford was always a fool. It just took Obama to fully demonstrate it. At least he has seen the light. Unfortunately, he may be the only one.

Alford is a RACIST.

What happened to ´judge a person by their character´? Alford is obviously a graduate of our schooling system. He unfamiliar with Martin Luther King.

My heart aches for the USA.

If he voted for Obama because he was black then he was a (racist) fool without Obama´s help.

OTOH, this is the probably the only type of testifying that will reach the 3% of accessible idiots in the US that swing elections.

I have swung both ways on these useful idiots. I respect the courage to public admit one´s error. But its a little stinkin late now, dum dum. Thanks for thinking that skin color was more important than character, philosophy, honesty, theology - not counting experience. You had better shout this from the mountaintop - because we have nearly four more years with Obama as president! Thanks for nothing.

They wanted a black President and anyone would do. How hard can the job be? I think they know now. It will take generations to dial back the damage this one man has done to our country. Alford can explain this to his grandchildren.

I get a kick out of the brothers saying they voted black as a qualifying trait for any seat. There are black goofs too just as in any racial group. Now he´s surprised the bro might not be qualified, but he probably still voted for him.

Skin color is never a good criteria for voting for or against any candidate. It´s racist to begin with. Look how that turned out with Obama. The Democrat Party played millions of voters for chumps.

“Oh, he’s got some plans he won’t dare discuss. He wants to take it some place where we’ve never been before, and it’s some place where we shouldn’t go. He is scary,” Alford answered...To make America not as great as it once was,” Alford responded. “That all countries should be equal, and everyone should get along, and stop thinking that European socialists is a bad system. We should be like them. We should be like France, as it’s approaching a 75% rate for taxation for wealthy. It’s crazy.”

Yes, it is "crazy". People have been saying that O is not quite right in the head since they first found out about him. With each passing month and interminable year, we discover we are right. Crazy may be the perfect word because it sure isn´t simply a matter of inexperience. Look at his advisors, the people who surround him -- they are all Marxist radicals or like Carney, dupes.

Mitt Romney looks awfully good about now. Glad some black Americans are coming out from under their blinders.

NOW he says it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where the Devil was he when it counted? And as far as voting for a President simply because he is Black, what an absolutely horrendous admission!!!!! But, obviously, a truthful one....I only wish all those white liberals, Chris Matthews and Brian Williams included, would admit they voted for a totally inexperienced man with virtually no qualifications and some really shady friends simply because it made THEM feel good about THEMSELVES!!!!!

A man who organizes his life around color can´t be too smart. He´s not a business man he is a black business man. He can´t run a chamber of commerce it has to be a black chamber of commerce. It only stands to reason he would vote for a president based on his skin color.

The National BLACK Chamber of Commerce promotes special set-asides and special privileges for blacks at the expense of other Americans. If Mr. Alford, the advocate for special advantages for blacks, is complaining now, it is just because Obama has not provided enough special treatment for black businesses to suit him, just a bunch of Obamaphones for the lofos. Where are the tax credits just for being black? Where are the reparations? I guess Mr. Alford couldn´t bring himself to lie about being a farmer to feed at the Pigford trough.

My suspicion is that the reason he opposes socialism has less to do with a real commitment to capitalism and more to do with a fear that his black privilege might disappear into the great collective. When Mr. Alford leaves the BLACK Chamber of Commerce and joins the real Chamber of Commerce, I will take him and his complaints more seriously.

Most black folks were so proud to elect the first "black" (sic) President. Even though he´s lied and pandered to them time and time again, they remain proud. If they only knew... It looks like Mr. Alford has seen the light but, sadly, too late.

Something to remember here folks. This guy at least has the guts to admit he was wrong. Where are the same statements for Condi Rice and Colin Powell? They have in the past pretty much intimated they voted for Obama because of his color.

It takes guts in this society to admit to a mistake. Isn´t that what we are about here, taking ownership and responsibility for actions?

# 22 brings up a good point about the Natl Black Chamber of Commerce with their special set asides, etc. I would like just one conservative radio/talk show host/ess to ask one of these black voters (I now regret my vote for Obama) why they are really upset? Is it because Obama has not done enough for you and your group because of skin color? That he is treating you and your group no better than the (white) nat´l Chamber of Commerce? Just what is your motive for complaining about him now?

Harry C. Alford should be praised for the courage it took for a black leader to stand up and say he was wrong about Obama and now realizes that he made a mistake. He will assuredly be criticized by the black community and the left. My hat is off to him. My only criticism is that he and others like him did not stand up and speak before the election. We are now stuck with the "Petulant Child in Chief" for four more years.

We have had presidents for whom the public had far lesser expectations than it had for Obama. These presidents surprised all by rising to the task(s).

I think that many white and some black voters expected Obama to rise to the office. Most voters do not investigate the background of a candidate as well as Ldotters do, making up their minds at the polls.

They were sorely disappointed and just now are realizing how badly.

Color aside, obama´s obvious insanity has been diagnosed by several professionals. Where is Congress on the impeachment proceedings for his demonstrated non-fitness to hold this office?

If Congress does not soon act, we will have to borrow a tactic from the psycho himself and go around Congess to do what needs to be done if we want to save this country. If you think we are on the edge now, just wait until the full madness of obamacare kicks in. A fragile economy will break like a dry twig.

A Conservative Black would not have had a chance, and would have been subjected to the same brutal treatment which all Conservatives suffer.

So, ideology played a big role, the media sychophancy made promulgation a piece of cake.

BUT, there was a choice between Hill-of-Beans and BO.

What if BO looked more like his mother than his father? Would he have been able to push old Hill off to the sidelines?

The color of his outer layer (epidermis)became a deflector shield (a la "Star Trek"): a word, a scintilla of criticism, Pow! Whammo! Thwak! out came the "RACISM!!! RACIST!!!" accusations.

In short order, the critiques of BO ended, including from the Republican potus candidate (whose name shall go unmentioned).

Leftism (along with its NAZI variant) has always been and is and always will be the most pernicious, poisonous, destructive religion-qua-ideology.

Black Americans voted for what they think is a black man and therefore the 1st black president. Sorry, he has 50% black genes and 50% white genes which does not make him black.
He is according to my dictionary a "mulatto", n.(1) A person having one white and one Negro parent. (2) A person having some white and some Negro blood.

In other words we have not yet elected the first "BLACK PRESIDENT"

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
