Heartbreak: Harry Belefonte says Barack Obama should not be reelected?

Cheer up conservatives, it is not all bad news:
"You can cage the singer but not the song."
“My question is, what legacy will he leave, having the opportunity to serve under such hugely dramatic circumstances and had such a huge impact on the universal state of things … how could he have had such a splendid opportunity to do more than most presidents would have ever been able to do, and he let that opportunity slip away from him.
I’m very cautious of the fact that those who think he has some second agenda and only if he could be given a second term for us to see the new light, new things will be revealed, new efforts will be made to take us to a place other than where we’ve been and where we languish. I just don’t trust that. I don’t believe that’s a safe way and accurate way to look at this scenario. If there was the kind of moral compass serving Barack Obama the way we hoped, the moral force would have helped him make choices, the absence of that force in his equations, that barometer to guide him when he has to make these decisions that are hugely complicated, he should have come to the table with the things that would have helped us in this moment of crisis.” 
Daylight come and he wan' Obama to go home...?

  1. Where does he say he doesn't want him to be reelected? Grasping.

  2. I would not call it grasping. It is a legitmiate inference given what he says. But I suspect when the election comes, Harry will support Barack Obama then. Just with a lot less enthusiasm than last time.

  3. Anonymous--I added a "?" to the headline just to be fair.
