Obama jokes of getting dreadlocks after leaving office



By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times

President Obama said jokingly Thursday that he might go back to wearing dreadlocks when his presidency is over.

Promoting anti-poverty programs at the White House, Mr. Obama called attention to Roger Brown, a young African-American man from Harlem in New York City who was standing with him on the stage. Mr. Brown, a student at Hunter College, wears his hair in short dreadlocks.



“I used to have a haircut like that,” Mr. Obama said to laughter. “And maybe, after I’m done with the presidency, I’m going back to that.”

Turning serious, the president noted that both he and the young man had been raised by single mothers.

“If you want to know why I care about this stuff so much, it’s because I’m not that different from Roger,” the president said. “There was a period of time in my life where I was goofing off. I was raised by a single mom. I didn’t know my dad. The only difference between me and Roger was my environment was more forgiving than his. That’s the only difference. If I screwed up, the consequences weren’t quite as great.”

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Obama and Marley have more in common than just ganja, looks like.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

I think it's time for Obama to make an Exodus to the Fatherland.............
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
