Speaking about his frequent foil, President Obama, in a June 2014 interview, West said,  “You can’t effect change from inside the White House like that …You gotta have the money. Good ideas usually aren’t connected to money as much …Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap.” After Obama made a comment about our celebrity obsessed culture, West responded by telling the president to keep Kim Kardashian’s name out of his mouth.

A regular on Fox, Dash has made a new career out of attacking Obama. This is what she said of Obama and ISIS in August: “Obama thinks if he closes his eyes like a kid, it’s not there. He ignored the problem, and now it’s a crisis. I believe we have to strike. They killed an American. But I don’t know if he’s going to do that.”

  1. Until President Obama has complete support of the House & Senate, he will continue to swim up stream. What these "celebrities" seem to think is that he can make laws and decisions without their vote. And let's stop thinking that he's just suppose to turn the lives around for black folks only. He's the POTUS, not POTBF only. That's why the Midterm elections are FAR more important that the Presidential election. GO VOTE!

  2. Marcus Matthews says:

    This is true. America is not a dictatorship. Barack Obama can't pass laws by himself.

    People need to realize the House and Senate needs to back him.

  3. let see the list includes: idiot and uninformed rappers, a sellout failed actress and two jealous crabs in the barrel. The only one I have respect for Harry Belafonte.

  4. Hazel Whitesides says:

    True that, Marcus Matthews but, they were all for backing Bush, the war crimes POTUS and, didn't have any problem doing it either. He caused the senseless deaths, of thousands of our service men and women. Not to mention those, who are forever marked, physically and mentally from a war based on LIES. yet this they have no problem with. SMDH

  5. Your description of the list is very accurate, however, the sad part is all of said list have platforms to voice their rhetoric. Here lies the problem.

  6. Why is criticising him called attacking him? Their criticisms hold weight.

  7. I'm curious to hear what Tavis & Cornell have to say now that the elections have swung in favor of the Republicans. If you thought the POTUS didn't have black folks interest at heart then, what the hell do you think he will be able to do with losing the House & Senate? I'll wait…..

  8. Good summation of the critics but you can add the fact that at Harry Belafonte's age, he is likely to be still living in the past and your mind gets a bit warped. Look at Jack Welch, former CEO of GE, he thinks Senator Ted Cruz is great. If that is not the sign of a senile man I do not know what is.

  9. It is the 2010 mid terms that sowed the seeds for the 2014 mid terms. Blacks and Democrats in general failed to come out and vote thinking their role had ended now that they had elected Obama. They did not realize that the elections of 2010 were the last elections before the Census and gave the GOP the authority to Gerrymander the constituencies and make it almost impossible for some GOP candidates to lose. So in addition to losing the House, the Dems were going to have a hard time regaining it. This ensured that the Dems again lost the House in 2012. If they had voted in 2010, the Dems would have been able to hold the House along with the Senate and the President would have been able to accomplish even more than he has.

  10. All these coons could go to hell and burn in it for dissing the greatest prez ever.

  11. Harry sold out and married a cracka bitch tho, so I don't know whether you still got respect for him or not.

  12. Hazel Whitesides, you are absolutely correct! These celebrities know NOTHING AT ALL about running the country, yet have the AUDACITY to criticize the president who, against the odds, is trying to make a difference. As Marcus Matthews said above, "America is not a dictatorship." President Obama cannot pass laws by himself. Kanye West should keep his mouth shut and let people wonder if he is an idiot instead of speaking and removing all doubt! One of the most glaring problems in America is the bicameral congress dominated by the two-party system which has turned running the country into a game of which party has the most representatives/senators in the House and Senate to throw their weight around. Essentially, whatever party dominates the House and Senate has the greatest leverage.

  13. I could not have said it better!

  14. They hold weight? Really?

  15. President Obama won the election because of the white vote! Even if every single person of color had voted for Obama, it would not have been nearly enough votes to win the presidency. This is not a black/white issue, people. Gerrymandering, not lack of democrat voter turnout, is more likely responsible for the loss of the House.

  17. Dianne Thompson You clearly do not understand the sequence of events because you say that Gerrymandering and not the lack of voter turnout is the more likely reason for the loss of the house but you are forgetting that it was the lack of voter turnout in the 2010 that allowed the GOP to win all those House seats and Goverships and since the latest Census figures were then available and that is what gave the GOP the authority to Gerrymander the constituencies so they were able to cement their position in 2014. If the Dems had voted like they did in 2008 that would not have happened. Gerrymandering did not affect the vote for the President because that is a statewide vote and not subject to Gerrymandering.
