Clarence Thomas - Obama Became POTUS Because He Was APPROVED BY ELITES and MEDIA



"..I DON'T UNDERSTAND POLITICS.."



When asked about how he felt about the nation's first black President, Barack Obama, Thomas said he always knew it would have to be a person who was "approved by the elites and the media" because if it was someone who they didn't agree with, that person would be picked apart.

"Any black person who says something that is not the prescribed things that they expect from a black person will be picked apart... So, I always assumed it would be someone the media had to agree with," Thomas said.

1. So Clarence, carp much, who selected you?

You legal ability is questionable, your loyalities questionable, your sensibilities questionable. Why are you there is a job you really don't want or participate much in.

9. George Herbert Walker Bush, BFEE

Picked by hand to replace a man whose shoes he's not fit to shine.

5. Oh, so Clarence was approved by the BFEE, the biggest Elite evah!1

As for "saying something," Clarence don't say no shit on the bench because it's not a matter of not saying "prescribed things" it's a matter of his fear of exposing his STUPID sayings.

Oh, and what Elite picked Shrub?!1


Resentful and envious a bit, Clarence, because OBAMA actually WON two elections with actual VOTES and not from PITY (for you) and THEFT (for Shrub)?!1

I will NEVER forget watching Anita Hill being slandered and trashed during his confirmation.

It's the only way I can conceive that he can actually live with himself.

12. Clarence Thomas must have the lowest I.Q. of anyone ever on the SCOTUS!

He is an embarrassment to the entire country. Even his fellow wing nut judges mock him for his stupidity. He rarely has anything to say and when he does it is usually something so wrong and so ignorant he crawls back under his rock and shuts up for awhile.

He started his Court appointment with lies on national TV.

13. LOL. Says someone who used affirmative action to get ahead then tried to close the door behind him.

And also the person who is jealous of how the media views people after his sexual harassment of Anita Hill forever defined him as a contemptible person.

otherwise his delusion that he was appointed on merit would fall apart.

and quit trying to influence the political electoral process via their public opinions.

20. "Better to keep quiet and be thought an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

(Mark Twain, paraphrased.)

I'll give him this: at least he didn't say "I agree with whatever Tony says."

He is right in that Obama's success is a result of approval by a wide array of Americans, including those movers and shakers.

26. I think he's right about this, shocked though I am

Remember Sidney Poitier? He was the first black actor to crack into white films. A shockingly handsome Bahamian, he had perfect diction and his roles were written to make him often seem like the only good guy in the film. My snarkier friends called him "the black guy who never shits," but that sort of thing was necessary and he blazed a trail for black actors and actresses playing more flawed (but interesting) characters to follow.

And so it's been for "the first black" anything. You bet Obama was approved by the elites. Look at all the bankers he's got on staff to find out what the payback is. He's got to be their perfect black actor and he knows it.

If he sticks his neck too far out, his head will be chopped off.

31. He's projecting

This man so desperately wants to be white and "approved" by the white right wing establishment.

As long as people like Hannity, O'Reilly and Limbaugh think he's a good boy, then he's satisfied.

He sold his soul a long time ago. He despises black people. It's obvious.

Yeah, Clarence, stick it to them sell-outs who lost touch with their street cred.

I'm so tired of hearing comfy-assed Right Wing millionaires go all "Boo Hoo, no one is more oppressed than me." Clarence is just like Trump, Adelman, Romney and every other prissypants jillionaire who gets pissed off that the world ain't licking their ass with gratitude
