Fox Business’ Eric Bolling: Obama inviting ‘hoodlums’ to the ‘hizzouse’

I should not be shocked or dismayed at anything that the Fox News Network says about the POTUS.  However I am in fact quite disgusted with Fox News’ constant “scary Black man meme“.

Did these people forget that George W. Bush invited Osama Bin Laden’s son, Omar Bin Laden to White House ?  Not to mention a male hooker and even some Taliban members, right before 9/11.

Raw Story

Referring to a meeting in the Oval Office between President Barack Obama and Gabonese President Ali Bongo Ondimba, Fox Business’ Eric Bolling said, “It’s not first time he’s had a hoodlum in the hizzouse” while displaying a picture of the rapper Common.

“Our president’s sitting with one of Africa’s most wanted,” Bolling, the host of Follow the Money, said later in the segment. “It’s not the first time he’s had a hood in the big crib.”

Also during the segment, Human Events editor Jason Mattera added that “we shouldn’t be surprised that Barack Obama is going to get chummy with a reprehensible dictator” because he has a “pattern of yucking it up” with dictators and “likes to defecate on American allies.”

In May, Bolling was accused of racism for tweeting, “Obama chugging 40′s in IRE while tornadoes ravage MO.”

    Saw that yesterday – they’re not even pretending anymore. NOt too long ago and before FOX, a remark like that would have gotten him fired.

    I visited my 84 year old African American uncle Saturday. We shared some Budweisers and watched the Belmont Stakes together. His over all optimism surprised me, considering the present political climate. He assured me the American people are not as stupid as they are portrayed by the media; they are generally smart enough to know their interests will be better served by Obama regardless of any appeals to racial prejudice; and they will vote according to what they believe to be their best interests.

    I was really questioning his thinking until I heard today that the Pentagon is still searching for 6.6 billion dollars in stacks of 100 dollar bills that were supposed to have been sent to Iraq for reconstruction. My uncle had already told me in the same conversation that he believes a lot of the nation’s economic problems are the result of theft of funds whether through hi-tech hacking or low-tech theft of billions in cash (as in the case of the Iraq funds.)

    It’s good to talk to the old-timers sometime.

      Indeed it is, lurker (no more though!). I’m pretty old myself, but I always liked the perspective that came with talking to those older than me.

        I’m pretty old too. But I try to make a science of staying in touch with my adolescent side. It’s not hard to do, and it works wonders. :)

    • Your uncle does sounds like an optimist, LTL. Has he always been this optimistic? It must be nice.

      My so-called real world viewcomes from being a political junkie I guess. That view has become more and more skewered in pessimism over the years.

      Blogging only exacerbates that view.

        I think my uncle’s point was that in all his years of scrutinizing political developments in this country he has not seen extremists go mainstream like they have recently; but he believes those extremists are talking mostly to each other and are out of touch with most Americans.

        I don’t necessarily buy it, but since my uncle has 20 more years of experience with America than do I, and has been right about some other things, I find his viewpoint somewhat soothing. In any event, I remember the McCain/Palin 2008 campaign looking like high road moderates by comparison to the 2012 bunch, and McCain, nevertheless, made a respectable showing. I really don’t think most voters were/are looking for a presidential candidate who is angrier and more radically right wing than John McCain as a viable alternative to the person they elected last time.
