Roland Martin On Artur Davis’ RNC Address: You Just Heard A Political Fraud

Roland Martin, Alex Constellanos and CNN’s John King discuss Artur Davis’ speech at the Republican National Convention.

    Roland you are very much out of line. I’m African American too. Quite frankly I am tired of the temper tantrums and childish tirades you so often engage in.

    Principle trumps over emotion. Why don’t try to be objective for once and admit that Obama has failed —even by the president’s own standard “one term proposition.”

    Please stop the nonsense!

    Obama: Style over Substance.
    Romney: Substance over Style.

    Style:Â
    Hanging out with George Clooney and all the high rollers, but no results.

    Substance: may be boring, but produces results.

    Give me substance please!

      Please list one policy Romney plans on enacting that doesn’t involve repealing a current law?

      Please list one thing of substance Romney did as governor?

      List one thing Romney did in business that would suggest that he would be good for the US economy?

        Thank you and BamiAyo I’ll be waiting for that list.

        • BamiAyo BamiAyo

          List what business Obama owned before being president? List jobs he created before being president. Sure sounds good though. Sounding eloquent hadn’t done anything. If Obama were white we won’t being having this discussion.

          I’m a black man who separates race from principle.

          Obama says if own a business you didn’t build it. So who did? Government? Huh?

          Let’s stop seeing race in everything.

          Again if our president wasn’t black you folks would admit he has failed.

          Romney created businesses. Put his record side by side with Obama and who has a come out on top with great business acumen? Romney!

            You are clearly blinded by your own prejudices for anyone who is not white anglo saxon protestant except for a Mormon like willard romney. He is nothing than a elitist who cannot relate who in a tax bracket below 31%. When has a republican ever balanced a budget in the past 100 years? When has republican legislator ever brought unemployment below 5%?

          • BamiAyo BamiAyo

            So you are proud of Obama’s performance? You are a dreamer then. Good luck to you. Mean that sincerely.

    • I assume your view of substance is the amount of money Romney made when he raided businesses for their assets, dumped their employees into the streets, sent jobs overseas along with his bounty so that he wouldn’t have to pay taxes. I guess you’re okay with his view of “legitimate rape” so your daughter won’t get the healthcare she needs should she ever become pregnant by a rapist, the ongoing meme that stereotypes blacks as slacking welfare recipients and let’s not forget his “birther joke” which was a sellout in order to gain favor with the far right. Do you really know who Romney is? But maybe you’re just another pretender, online behind a computer screen.

      • BamiAyo BamiAyo

        Obama is a raider of small businesses. Creating a climate that stifles small businesses. Hence, he says “…you did not build it.”

        Yeah, keep the blind loyalty while the economy sinks!

      • BamiAyo BamiAyo

        Do you really know who Obama is? Who does? A carefully crafted image. We don’t even know what his transcripts say. They are sealed up. He never owned a business.

        Not pretending. I’m black as any other. Lol! But my mind is not brainwashed.

        “Put y’all back in chains” No outrage.
        “Cancer ad” No outrage.
        “Felon comment” No outrage.

        Conclusion you would be a hypocrite if you only express outrage about a joke about birth certificate. Grow up!

    I love how Castellanos claimed that Artur Davis was a “high ranking Democrat”. Because nothing says high ranking like the guy who lost the Democratic gubernatorial primary in a landslide and is now planning a quixotic run for Congress in Virginia (even if Davis were to get through the primary, Gerry Connolly will crush him in the general). Please keep this in mind when you guys analyze Charlie Crist’s remarks — will Castellanos call him “low ranking” or a “fake Republican”.

    • BamiAyo BamiAyo

      Obama has failed by his own standard. Let’s stop seeing everything from the prism of “blackness.” Be objective for once.

  • BamiAyo BamiAyo

    Ok.

    Artur Davis is a fraud flat-out. He lost an election and jumped to a side where a dislike for President Obama is the only price for admission. No one on that hall would vote for Davis, but they have no problem letting one black man disparage another. But what do you expect from peanut-throwers.

    • BamiAyo BamiAyo

      If saying that makes you feel better and calms your nerves, then go forward. Everything is black and white. Come on! Get off this train. Let’s stop raising our children as victims and suspicion. This is so shameful.

    This is cray. I am still fighting the government system to restore my identity. I can’t believe my name have a “code29” in the credit bureaus system listing me as deceased.

    The local news, or CNN national news airing my story still have not brought about a change. How can a crime like this go unnoticed?

    Do you know of any pro bono lawyers in MO who practice civil law that might be interested in banks that cause errors reporting false information about their customers being deceased?
