“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
As we all know by now, President Barack Obama won by a landslide re-election for four more years as President of The United States. And as a supporter I am very happy to see the President will get four more years. He has a lot of work to do to help folks obtain new jobs so they feed their families and pay their bills.
But what I am not happy about is the Republicans crying like big babies because Mitt Romney did not win the election. Have you seen the looks on their faces when they are being interviewed on CNN or MSNBC or Fox News when the discussion is about the President winning? The look very upset and mad.
So in that vain, we have the possible nomination of Susan Rice to replace current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is going to retire. But the folks on the right ain’t having it. They are fighting against her before the President can name his choice. And it has got out of hand.
The folks on the right are blaming Ms. Rice for saying lies etc on TV regarding the terrible and sad killings in Benghazi. The bottom line is Susan just spoke to what she was given to say. But the Republicans are blaming her for everything. This is wrong!
Sen. John McCain and many others on the right and of course Sean Hannity and Fox News are leading a terrible witch hunt against the highly intelligent and qualified Susan Rice. They refuse to back down.
In my opinion readers I have to say this. Many folks DO NOT want to see a African American President, a African American Attorney General and a possible African American Secretary of State. Let’s be real readers. I think I am right.
So it is VERY interesting to see who President Obama will nominate. Will it be Ms. Rice? Most people think so. If so, things will get very interesting for sure.

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
Students held big protest over the re-election of President Barack Obama Tuesday night on the University of Mississippi campus. Why did this happen folks? This is crazy. (Read story from washingtonpost.com right here)
Tonight was a very happy night for me as I sat and watched the first African American President of the United States Barack Obama, win re-election to a second term as President. I never thought I would see a African American President, now he has four more years!
To see President Obama walk on stage before a wild and cheering crowd in Chicago with First Lady Michelle Obama and their beautiful children, it just made me very happy. And if you are a supporter of the President I am sure you are happy too because in my opinion it would have been a huge mistake to elect Mitt Romney.
If Romney was elected it would be President George W. Bush all over again. Romney said if elected he would make cuts to Medicare, Amtrack, Planned Parenthood, Social Sucurity, FEMA, food stamps and much more. It would have been terrible. How anyone would vote for Romney is beyond me readers. But then again Romney had Fox News on his side led by Sean Hanitty.
I watched Fox News after CNN said that President had won and this crazy Karl Rove was making excuses and was saying he did not think the President had won yet. Rove is crazy! Can’t wait to hear Hannity cry like a baby because his guy Romney was beat. But you can bet that Hannity will continue to talk negative about President Obama on a nightly basis during his second term just like he did during the first term.
Finally, as I watched the crowd when Romney gave his speech after his loss, I could not see a black face. It was a sea of white faces. The Republicans need to realize that America is not all white. It is a melting pot of African Americans, Asians, Latinos, East Africans etc. The right needs to start RIGHT NOW to reach into the black community and latino community etc and show that they care about our plight in America.
Romney won big time in states like Arizona and Utah and Montana and Wyoming where there is hardly a black face in sight. The Republicans have have a long long history of not reaching African Americans and people of color and showing us they care about us. When you watched the crowd in Chicago after President Obama won you saw whites cheering, Asians cheering, East Africans cheering, African Americans cheering,
This is America folks. And on November 6th, Americans voted for President Obama to serve four more years. He has a lot of work to do. People need jobs etc but I think the President will try to work hard to improve some of the problems that are going on today. Hopefully the Republicans will FINALLY work with him because so far they have not. I am happy that President Obama won a second term now as Big Ed says on his show on MSNBC “Let’s get to work”

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)
BREAKING NEWS: Because of Hurricane Sandy all events have been put on hold by President Obama and Mitt Romney. The President has to be the President in charge the next few days.
If you have kept up with race for President between President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney then you know the issue of race has shown it’s ugly face again and it’s ugly folks. Real ugly.
People like former Gov. John Sununu, Ann Colter, the son of Sen. Tony Thompson, Sarah Palin and other folks have shown that just because we have had a African American President for the last four years it does not matter. Racism is alive and well in America and it is truly truly sad. And it upsets me.
Gen. Colin Powell came out the other day and again put his support behind the re-election of President Obama. Then Sununu who is one of Romney’s tops aides, came out and said the Powell is supporting the President because he is a fellow African American. That is a bunch of BS!!
Then Ann Culter calls the President a “retard” Also former Gov. Sarah Palin says the President needs to stop “shucking and jiving” A very racist term that goes back decades. And Sean Hannity has the NERVE to say the left is playing the so-called “race card”.
And Thompson’s son said in a meeting that he hopes the President will get beat so he can go back to Chicago or maybe Kenya!! This is TERRIBLE!! What kind of off the wall comment is this readers?
First of all readers, this term “race card” is ONLY used by non-people of color. You have never heard a African American bring out the term “race card” If you have PLEASE let me know. Why is this term used against black folks? It is just like the word “thug”. It is used almost 100% of the time against African Americans and people of color. This is real talk!!
And keep in mind folks that President Obama has been fighting racism since day one by Fox News and right wing radio hosts like Mike Savage, Laura Ingraham, Mike Medved, and even John Carlson here in Seattle. It has been this way since the President and his beautiful family moved into the White House.
So with a few days to go before election day, we are getting plenty of reports of African Americans and the right playing games with our votes just like in 2000. So that will be what I will be writing about in my next story. Stay tuned! Gordon Curvey

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
I don’t know if you are a supporter of President Obama or Mitt Romney but I will tell you what. I am a supporter of President Obama and I am going to support his re-election for four more years.
This week I watched great speech after great speech at the Convention in Charlette. Unlike the BORING Republican convention in Tampa Bay where they told lie after lie after lie about President Obama. Remember one thing readers and that is from day one the right had one thing in mind and one thing only and that is to make President Obama a one term President of the United States. Period.
They had a meeting with Republican leaders on the day the President was sworn in to plan on making him a one term President. And they have tried to do every thing that goes against our President. Heck some of them still think President Obama is not a American. Or he is “not one of us”
But in Charlette I watched some of the best political speeches I have ever seen. First Lady Michelle Obama walked onstage in Tampa with a great looking dress and gave a great speech. She knocked it out the park. The governor of Ohio gave a great speech. He knocked it out the park.
Vice-President Joe Biden gave a great speech too. Brought the house down and yes he knocked it out the park. And the best hitters in my opinion were President Bill Clinton and of course President Obama. The President NEVER gives a boring speech. When he speaks it is like a African American minister giving a sermon on Sunday morning. I feel insprired every time I here a speech by our President. Real talk.
But to be truthful the best speech in my opinion was by President Bill Clinton. It was a 45 min political lecture by the former President. I am not going to lie. It was the best speech I have ever heard. He just broke it down about the Republicans and Paul Ryan and Mit Romney. Point by point and issue by issue. Bill Clinton is one thing folks…a politician and that is what he is. Clinton in my opinion won the race against Romney with his speech.
The Democratic Convention was the most diverse event I have seen. All races and creeds. Keep this in mind readers. And that is the Republicans only had 47 African American delegates out of thousands. Only 47!! That is not American folks.
So let’s see what happens now that the two conventions are in our past. I hope President Clinton and others help out the President out on the road to help re-elect President Obama so he can finish what he has started.
After all as Clinton said it is no way he can get every thing done the way President Obama wants in one term. He has to have another term to help people get back to work.
If Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan wins well I might as well pack my bags and move to Africa or something. In my opinion if the Republicans win minorities are in trouble in America. This is a fact. It just cannot happen.

I was really not shocked when I saw this story regarding Mitt Romney. The story says Romney has ZERO support from African American voters according to a new poll by NBC/Wall Street Journal. Again I was really not shocked.
Republicans have a LONG history of little outreach to the African American community. It is like they do not care. Yes Romney made a “fake” showing at the NAACP convention a few months back and he met with a few black folks concerned with education but that has been it readers.
When Romney spoke at the NAACP event he told the crowd “I am your man to help with problems in the African American community” I almost to call 911 when he said that!! We heard cheers. But we found out later that the “cheers” came from his supporters that were planted in the crowd to cheer for him!! I am telling you the truth folks! That really happened.
Of course President Obama has a 94% ratings in the poll. That is not a shock right? And of course our First Lady Michelle Obama is VERY popular. She is just a great lady.
It is no surprise that I am a supporter of our President. And like Spike Lee told Piers Morgan the other day, I am going to do my part, little as it is to help him get re-elected in November.
It is a fact that the Republicans led by Romney are trying to STOP AFRICAN AMERICANS FROM VOTING IN KEY SWING STATES LIKE OHIO AND FLORIDA. This cannot happen!! It is a fact that the race between Romney and President Obama is a dead heat right now and the right is trying to play games with African American voters. IT HAS TO STOP AND STOP NOW readers. This cannot happen!
So Mitt Romney with ZERO support among African Americans…..not a surprise. Gordon Curvey
