I’m impressed that The Smoking Gun uncovered this. This guy ran for President Of The US and got millions of votes. Not a breaking story on the liberal news media, I’m shocked something THIS big slipped through their fingers. It speaks volumes about the lack of a credible news media in America. Nice work Smoking Gun!
I’m much more upset to read of all of the many honors given and the respect with which Mr. Obama has apparently treated Mr. Sharpton. Given the nature of Mr. Sharpton, I think it is absolutely revolting. Shame on the liberal media for getting Mr. Obama elected, and that’s what they did, twice.
Sharpton has been one of Obama’s most unwavering backers, a cheerleader who has nightly bludgeoned the president’s Republican opponents in televised broadsides. For his part, Obama has sought the man’s counsel, embraced him publicly, and saluted his “commitment to fight injustice and inequality.”
The president has even commented favorably on his friend’s svelte figure, the physical manifestation of a rehabilitation effort that coincided with Obama’s ascension to the White House. This radical makeover has brought the man wealth, a daily TV show, bespoke suits, a luxury Upper West Side apartment, and a spot on best seller lists.
Most importantly, he has the ear of the President of the United States, an equally remarkable and perplexing achievement for the former FBI asset known as “CI-7,” the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama will be guest of Honor at Sharpton’s National Action Network Conference this week.
