President Obama may have lost the Farrakhan vote with his Libyan policy:
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan blasted U.S. President Barack Obama for taking part in an international coalition against Libyan Muammar Qaddafi.
The coalition, consisting of France, the United Kingdom and the U.S., began bombing strategic targets in Libya on Saturday. France’s air force is leading the air strikes.
The U.S. and UK have launched hundreds of missiles from naval ships.
Farrakhan, on a Chicago radio show, said he was outraged Obama took part in the attack.
“Why don’t you organize a group of respected Americans and ask for a meeting with Qaddafi, you can’t order him to step down and get out, who the hell do you think you are?”
He made the comments on WVON-AM.
I imagine Reverend Wright is none too happy as well which makes this actually a good thing for Obama as it’s hard to find the negatives in pissing off the likes of these two moonbeams.
