Roland Martin
he would be a very good communication director for Obama. I saw this on dailykos, but I was totally thinking this before I saw this. He would be great for him, and though somewhat annoying he would be just what they need imo, since they can't hire me.

4. well I was watching him on CNN and he was making very good points
on what Obama needs to do. He needs to be a bit more tough than he has been and not let the Clinton's run the narrative of what is important (pennsylvania) and what isn't (mississippi/wyoming). He was very adamant in saying they need to be better in defining the narrative and not letting the Clinton team. I agree with him. I think he needs a very good communications director.

7. I really like him.

I was impressed with him when I saw him in a few CNN interviews and was pleased when he later joined the pundit team.

8. Considering that all of the so called anchors are White men
or White women that are lost in the 70's . One would think that they would assign one some body of color to one of the networks.
Seems like all the know it alls always seem to be Republican.

They are talking about the politics of all and their slant is always what happened with Reagan or GHWB an on and on.

It must sound so ancient and out of touch to the young voters that really want to see these tired old men that are all tied to corporations.

All there is all day is Tweety,Lou,Boring Joe S (who had the mystery problem with the dead Assistant-right) Andrea know it all Mitchell. One lady that tries to be fair in my opinion is Meka(sp) with Boring Joe.

However, Joe rarely let's her say anything. When she does she presents a refreshing view.

Lou will claim that he is an Independent but he sounds like a Republican to me.


Then we have Buchannan ~ I know when the spin is in because they will have him as a guest for the entire show. On and on and on he goes ~ there is nothing he doesn't know.

The problem is that Roland Martin and a Latino anchor would be/should be able to talk about the White Guys running as well as Barack. They are usually focused on the Black candidate and at least it gives a view from the eyes of another racial group.

Another thing that I hate is when they bring on two Blacks to fool us into believing they will be fair at least to the minority ~ up pops Larry "the die hard Republican" Elder. People look at him and think because he is Black he will be balanced ~ NOT!

I would love to see Roland Martin have his say and if MSNBC or CNN had a smart gene they would hire him.
