Famed director Spike Lee is no longer confident that President Obama will be reelected.

“This thing is not a lock,” said Lee in a recent interview with GQ magazine.

“It is not a lock that President Obama is getting a second term and people have to really rekindle the enthusiasm that we had the first time."

Lee, who hosted a fundraiser for Obama in January, saw the light after meeting with a higher up within the Obama administration.

“I can't say to all the people that are unhappy with him that they're racist people,” Lee said of Obama’s critics. “People ain't got jobs, people are hurting. So I don't care what color you are, if people are out of work, it's tough. And then when you're the first African American president, that's not helping either.”

    Spike is speaking a scary truth... What I think is even more scarier is the thought of Mitt Romney becoming our president. If there was ever a time NOT to be complacent this November is it because I believe Romney WILL BE WORST! And it would be truly unfortunate and dangerous if we have to find that out the hard way. No fearmonger here... *justmyopinion*

  • lady_cn

    And we care what he thinks because??? :shrugs:

  • Gigi26

    Well Spike is entitled to his opinion but I know who i'm voting for :yes:

    And if Mitt Romney wins...I'm moving to Africa a la Nas in "Belly." That guy is a SUPER JOKE.

    If people want to blame someone on the job situation, blame the cronies in Congress who give these corps tax breaks and they go overseas for cheap labor, and allow the 1% to live lavish without giving their government nothing. Blame them and the lobbyists who have these crooks by their balls. If people truly understood the job of the President, half the ignorant shyt that is fed to the masses would not be eaten.

    :waves: Morning Everyone! GOOO OKC :lol:

  • Ms.Fashion

    Morning All in Advance!!! :waves:

    Newsflash!! Nothing is ever promised Spike. People need to be more educated about the parties in the election and really evaluate their agenda. Not win an election off of emotions. Choice is your right. :coffee:

    Good Morning

    Spike isn't saying anything different than Roland Martin, Rev Al or Rickey Smiley. This is going to be a tight/close race in Nov. We must get out and vote like we did 4yrs ago. I def. wish the economy/job rate were better and gas was CHEAPER but I'm still #teamObama :cheer:

    nice analysis, gigi (#3). thanku and goodmorning :hi:

  • Gigi26

    Mitt Romney is the epitome of a ROBOT!! He constantly back tracks on every statement that he makes that the masses get upset with. He is not a true candidate but let the GOP tell it, he's their GOD. Smfh.

    If people held their Representatives and Senators more accountable then we wouldn't be in this shythole of an economy!! I want Boehner OUT NOW.

    We have to rally like the Tea Party and the Birthers, because clearly they know how to get their agendas across :yes:

    It's not even about the President...it's all about who you elect to the SENATE & HOUSE...the President for the most part is a figure head and if he doesn't have the backing of the SENATE and/or HOUSE he's screwed regardless of who's in charge

    He is absolutely correct!!! People better wake up...SOON!!!

    the follow-up Q ::

    GQ: When do you see Barack pulling away if he wins?
    Spike Lee: Once we get to the debates my man is going to tear him up! It's going to be obvious who should lead this country for the next four years once they go head to head, toe to toe, elbow to elbow, butt to butt. And I don't think Mr. Romney can hang with him. He just can't!

So I can attest that the enthusiasm is not there. I just hope Romney's poor record as govenor will help the President.

    I read this AM that he flip flopped on pro choice. He had a Sister-in-Law who died from a back alley abortion in 1963. He was 16 at the time. He was so distraught that a Woman had to lose her life because of a law a MAN passed, he vowed to be pro-choice...

    And we all see how well THAT worked out, didn't we? :coffee:

    I'm looking forward to Obama not extending Bush's tax cuts for the rich. Let them muhphuckas pay more taxes. Why do I have a higher tax rate than my Boss who brings in a six figure salary?

    if either of them in office we are doomed... never ever is there a law/bill that are strictly for the people.. theres always a backdoor deal.. middle man that wipes out the purpose of the people!

    All politicians owe a loyalty to those backing them with $$$$$ (bankers and corporations).. The people only count to show whos more popular!
    Its us versus them! If Obama wins there will be no difference except for cronies (tax breaks) if mitt robmney wins there will be no difference except for his cronies (tax breaks) that are basically buying his presidency!!! WAKE YOO AZZ UP!
