Election 2008 Obama Politics

Chris Rock on Hillary: “I think America is ready for a woman president, but does it have to be that woman?”

Chris Rock on Barack Obama

[digg-reddit-me]Chris Rock’s new “No Apologies” tour which began New Year’s Eve at Madison Square Garden includes some 2008 election commentary, including this swipe at Hillary:

One of his best bits involved a sideways reference to his personal life. While discussing Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign, he mocked the notion that she had presidential experience, explaining that marriage doesn’t confer professional expertise. By way of example, he mentioned his own marriage.

“I’ve been with my wife for 10 years now,” he said. “If she got onstage right now, y’all wouldn’t laugh at all.”

Another great Chris Rock line regarding Hillary:

“I think America is ready for a woman president, but does it have to be that woman?”

He also includes a bit about Barack Obama:

Barack don’t seem like he realize he’s the black candidate sometimes. He’s running like he can win this shit fair and square. That motherfucker’s calm. He’s always talking in measured tones.You got to step this shit up when you the black candidate. When you the only brother playing basketball with a bunch of white guys, they expect you to dunk.

Video of the latter comments after the jump. (A warning on poor quality footage is given though – seems like it was taken with a cameraphone.)

And of course, the obligatory kicking of the dead horse, the current occupant of the White House:

[Bush has] made it hard for a white man to run for president. People are saying, ‘After Bush, I’m not sure we can take another chance on a white guy. He just doesn’t give a fuck about you. In the history of not giving a fuck no one has ever given less of a fuck.

Again, I apologize for the low quality of the video – but it’s the best I could find.

Chris Rock is unashamedly racist. His only interest in Obama is that he’s black, he’s not considering the issues or who might actually be the best president. A lot of people are giving Obama and Hillary a free ride simply because they’re not white men, which somehow makes them deserving of more attention.

The question is: America is ready for a black president, but does it have to be that one?

His tour didn’t begin New Year’s, I saw him at Stand Up NY last Thursday Dec 25th! For practically free. What a surprise! He was practicing his lines with us.

I would strongly disagree with both Leticia and Bryan, if there were 20 black men running for president during this election, Barack would still be the best choice. Barack is perhaps the classiest and most intelligent Presidential Candidate the democrats have had since JFK, no one could do a better job of running this country than Barack.

That’s pretty much the most stupid thing I’ve ever heard. I’m sure there are 20 black people in the States who are more intelligent than Obama. As yet, Obama has not run the USA and thus you can’t know if he could do a better job than anyone else. I’m sure he’s one of the better candidates out there but making statements like that is preposterous.

I bet there are more than 20 black people in America that are smarter than Obama. There are more than 20 women in the US that are smarter than Clinton… there are 1000’s of people in the US that are smarter than anyone running in that election (Even smarter then the President… {Gasp!!, call the CIA}). You know why they are all smarter? Because they are not in politics! The smart folks are the ones doing cancer research, finding a cure for AIDS, making sure large structures don’t fall down around you! If you think the leader of any country (I’m not a US citizen) should be the smartest ones, let me out!

Whether America is ready for a black president or not isn’t the question – whether the Americans are ready for a woman president isn’t the issue either. The matter here is does any of the candidates state a good case, are they convincing, do they canvas efficiently for votes, end of the day, its all about getting votes. Barrack is the man for the job, black or not. I followed the presidential elections & the running prior to that, George W Bush was never the man for the job (he proved it),he was never smarter (its eveident now) but he certainly was convincing hence he got the votes.
We don’t afford to keep a blind eye here, African Americans are 10% of the population in the US, they are a minority & have no voice,so what if Chris Rock does support Mr. Obama cause of the colour of his skin, he is their voice, many don’t have the platform that he has,they don’t have the stage to express their views.
Truth be told, Barack Obama carries the American dream,he carries the American hope, he is the American dream & is their hope. The man simply speaks about change – much needed change,Americans need that, the Bush government has failed them,humiliated,he has taken Amreican sons & daughters away from their families,it’s time to bring them back,Obama is the man to do that & Chris Rock has seen & is supporting just just.

I do enjoy the way you have framed this particular challenge plus it does offer me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, because of everything that I have witnessed, I only trust as the actual commentary stack on that people today keep on issue and in no way embark on a soap box involving some other news du jour. All the same, thank you for this outstanding point and while I can not necessarily concur with the idea in totality, I regard the viewpoint.
