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"

If there’s a story involving foreigners, religion, sports, sex, or pretty much anything, you can bet Starnes will somehow show up (on Fox’s web and TV properties or on his delightfully terrible Twitter account) to try and scare fellow evangelicals into believing there’s a war on lowly ol’ Christian American folks being waged either by Muslims, atheists, “seculars,” Hollywood libruls, or “the homosexual agenda.” His shtick can easily be summed up by the titles of his two

At last, one House Republican is ready to use the Constitutional power of the purse to reign in Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawlessness. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees Eric Holder’s Justice Department will utilize the power of the purse to withhold funds from the Justice Department. Eric Holder has been lobbying the Republican controlled House for a larger budget. Wolf says he will withhold $1,000,000 for every instance of failure for Eric Holder to respond to Wolf’s demands for information. The Constitution vests the House of Representatives with the power of the purse, an enormously effective tool

A woman was taken into federal custody Thursday after throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton as the former Secretary of State began a Las Vegas convention keynote speech. The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage before an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay resort. Clinton ducked, and she did not appear to be hit by the object. She then joked about it. "Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?" Clinton quipped. Many in the audience of more than 1,000 people in a large ballroom laughed and applauded as Clinton resumed her

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand. The Royal was also famously caught out on a Canadian jet tarmac in 2011, when

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Kim Kardashian might be one of the sexiest, wealthiest celebrities around but when it comes to the political arena not everyone is a fan it seems. It´s now come to light that the 33-year-old reality star´s offer to help President Obama in his 2012 campaign for re-election was reportedly met with firm resistance. Kim was said to have approached the president numerous times and act as his ´surrogate´ but Obama and his advisers apparently turned her down, according to RadarOnline. ´They wanted nothing to do with her,´ a source told Radar. ´She was not the young, cool image they wanted

Openly Partisan Stephen Colbert Chosen
to Boost the Left, not CBS Ratings

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

The progressive march to the future is destroying America. What the Democrats and the progressives are doing behind the scenes is a more frightening and unjustified power grab than Putin´s on the Ukraine. I have been silent the last couple of years because my politics are not in goose step with most of Hollywood. For that matter it is not in step with the GOP, either. I find both parties have done things that are detrimental to America. The GOP more by sins of omission. I am not a conspiracy theorist, but I have come to believe America is being

House Armed Services Committee chairman Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) said that a promise Majority Leader Eric Cantor made last year is a major force behind the push to grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers who enlist in the military. Cantor “made a pledge that he would help” Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) enact the proposal, McKeon said at a roundtable on Thursday morning in Washington, D.C. As reported last week by Breitbart News, House Republicans had been quietly working working to insert the text of the proposal into an related Defense authorization bill, but after the issue became public McKeon announced he would

When Jeb Bush comes to New York City Thursday, his main purpose won’t be to raise money for his possible 2016 presidential bid, but to begin two days of meetings with his employer, the big Wall Street firm Barclays Capital, FOX Business has learned. Bush’s trip, confirmed by people close to the former Florida governor, is raising eyebrows among some Republican fund raisers that he remains too cozy with to the financial industry at a time when many voters view Wall Street as toxic.

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!
