Diddy Turns on Obama

Carmel Lobello, Death + Taxes, January 31, 2011

“I love the president like most of us. I just want the president to do better,” Diddy told The Source. “There’s a difference between us voting for somebody and us believing in somebody. He’s the person that we believed in so I pray night and day that [Obama] understands how God ordained his presidency. I feel there was a promise made to God to look after people that was less fortunate, and [many] of those people are African-American . . .”

Diddy also campaigned for Obama along with other African American celebrities like Oprah and Jay-Z. Their work, along with Obama’s speeches and aides, {snip} all played a part in getting voters out to the polls. {snip}

When it comes to Obama making 2012-influenced decisions, Diddy started talking sense, saying, “It’s something he might not get reelected for, but we elected him. He owes us. I’d rather have a black president that was man enough to say that he was doing something for black people have one term than a president who played the politics game have two terms.”
