His memo to House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn requesting that he encourage the Congressional Black Caucus to urge Senator Obama to select Senator Clinton as his Vice Presidential running mate. And we want to know why does Bob Johnson have his nose up all in the Kool-Aid when he clearly stated a few months ago that he was not an Obama supporter.

Bob Johnson needs to stay out of this and let Obama and his team decided who their running mate will be on his own. It’s not fair for outside forces to try and influence what Obama is going to do, espically from people who where not very supportive of his campaign from jump street.

As we all know, Bob Johnson is not respected in the Black community. His creation of BET and many of the negative portrayals of Black women on TV make his association an uneasy one for any campaign. He already hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign with his remakers about Obama which he later had to apologise for. Now he’s try to ride other to get Obama to do what he wants to do.

Bob Johnson…go have a Coke and a smile and sit yo’ self DOWN!
