    Says his blood boiled when he heard which Bible Obama would be using for swearing-in.

    And them folks in Hollywood believe they can act. I vote to give West the Academy Award, the Emmy, and whatever else they can give him. Did anyone notice that old Tavis looked a little uncomfortable there.

    West mentioned the drones killing the "brothers" in Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere. [Some Baptists have funny "brothers"! I did not here West mention the 50+ million unborn babies slaughtered in their mothers womb, an atrocity that is decimating the black community!

    The Bible used by Abraham Lincoln

    The Bible used by Martin Luther King

    Well-----look on the good side

    1. It COULD have been the Bible used by Oprah

    2. It COULD have been the koran

    3. It COULD have been some other Scientologist's good word

    You have heard the expression that "The enemy of my enemy is my friend?" Well thats how I think about West. Let him rant about BO (West feels he stinks :laugh:) & let him yell about Al Sharpton that sycophant for BO. At least the criticism are coming from someone in the Black community so he will get listened to. Do you think these two enemies of the people should have flowers thrown at them by everyone in the black community..... not if they continue on there present trajectory. And that what West is criticizing. And Brother Baker, Ize all fo it! :thumbs::smilewinkgrin:

    While I very much respect the professor's views, I must say that I disagree. When times call for it, a leader will arise. How fitting that on the day set aside to recognize Dr. King, that the President of the United States would select Dr. King's bible for the oath of office. The President knows the path he has traveled would have been impossible before the advances of the civil rights movement of the 1960s. I believe that Dr. King would be so happy to know that even though it comes in fits and starts, the realization of his dream continues to unfold in an American society he helped to guide to a higher moral plane and one that continues to refine and improve ever toward a "more perfect union".

    Much ado over nothing.

    For all it meant to Obama, he might as well have used a copy of MAD magazine.

    He won't keep his oath no matter what he swears on..

    Obama doesn't give a flip about civil rights or any other rights. I assume he cares for his wife and children but that is the sum total of those he cares about. The only reason Obama is president is because leftists like George Soros effectively bought the election!

    You could not be more wrong. It goes to show that even with the 24/7 propaganda coming from the News Corp Faux News Channel, and hate filled talk radio, that the people spoke. My vote was not for sale to anyone. I am fully convinced that our President is the right man at the right time. May God bless our nation and our President.

    Mr. Obama couldn't hold a candle to the dirt of MLK's pinky finger.

    It is quite fitting that MLK's Bible should be used, if, indeed, it was.
