President Obama Gets DAPPER For ESSENCE Magazine's July 2012 Cover

President Barack Obama is ESSENCE magazine's July 2012 cover subject.  Check out our dapper leader inside...

“I’ve always approached my presidency as a long-term proposition…I didn’t run for office just to clean up the mess I inherited. I didn’t run for office just to return to the status quo. Understanding that some of the things I get done, we may not see the benefits from them for ten years. But that’s how change happens…” —President Barack Obama

Our distinguished President, who turns 51 this August, is looking dapper on the new cover of Essence mag, on stands June 12th. He discusses his plan to improve the economy, our health, homes and future—and why he’s excited about the next four years. This month's issue also features a special salute to military families from First Lady Michelle Obama.

Mr. President spent yesterday in New York City at a few fundraisers and even "performed" a "Barack On Broadway" show with former President Clinton.  Nice!

So many women on this site

So many women on this site hate on brothers for marrying and dating white women but yet they praise a man who descended from such relationship and raised by white women!!! Hypocrisy is the word to describe black women.

do you realize how hard being

do you realize how hard being the President has to be! Your the CEO for the country people, the country! not a little supervisor for a dairy queen full of teens which is hard to do in itself...the many personalities you have to be open too...you can't just run a country based on just your beliefs otherwise your only making people like you happy - the world is big people and this man and the other presidents have to find ways to keep a nation full of people happy and content no one person can EVER do that. So when your talking about his responses to this and that he's doing his best to keep an open mind and accept others points of views...he may not really condone gay marriage but it's not his job to make a decision based on his own beliefs!....think on that one. How will gay marriage effect him or you or any of us? its' their life and they have to answer to GOD just as we all do but it's not just for one man to tell half a nation they have no right to make the decision that may lead to their judgement day! That's GOD's job. You vote for the person who best supports the issues you are concerned about and never mind the rest! sit back, chill and let what the outcome will be be.

I won't be falling for the

I won't be falling for the best speech and saying everything we want to hear! While plaaying black politics, and allowing ALL the whites around the him, he sings AL Green to black people and we go crazy. While he has ONLY ONE top black in his cabinet, Clinton had 4 and Bush had 3, white jewish chief of staff, never ever nominated a black, even if he or she couldn't make it for the Supremme Court. Black people ask about ouor issues, "he says stop crying, get up and do something". Gays put pressure on him, " I love same-sex marriage", Jewish people ask, "I love Isarel". Come on black people wake! He has played us just like the Republicans and others. It's more than just having a black man in the White House. Help support our agenda. Black unemployment out the roof. I know what some will say, "he can't be black. Bullshit, not everything has to be black, but he ain't done jack for the black community. Black women will get emotional for Michelle, her staff is ALL white. It makes a difference, because you listen to people around you. ESSENCE will spotlight her, really don't mean to much since they are white owned and controlled and love former "dope girls" who also has ruined our community Marjorie Bridges Townsend Woods Harvey-Memphis Cocaine Queen. Will vote for Mr. Black President Who Tells Black Community What That Want To Hear. But Iwon't be running to the polls! This shit is getting old!

Obama has failed this nation.

Obama has failed this nation. I agree it's not just about blacks but it's about failed policy all across the board. Obama has failed and he will be voted out of office. As the new president, and with the help of a solidly Democratic Congress, he gave us a bunch of stuff he said would turn things around: Nearly $1 trillion in stimulus spending, which was supposed to kick the economy back into gear; ObamaCare, which allegedly fixes long-term problems; the Dodd-Frank financial-reform law, which claimed to tackle the roots of the 2008 meltdown. Obama has not done well and he needs to go. The American public is pretty clear about this. It's not about Blacks but about the Nation.

Damn Mitt, didn't know you

Damn Mitt, didn't know you read the blogs. I swear, the Republicans must have a guide book on how to speak far right. The same lingo comes out of their mouths every time they open it. Even if I didn't like President Obama and his policies, which I do by the way, I would never vote for that jackal Willard the Rat Romney. Ut uh. Nope!

Funny how in many polls people are very critical about Obama's Job performance. Being Commander in Chief is part of the job and not an excuse not to Balance the economy and provide a better jobs market. What are you talking about? Obama Kool Aid Drinkers.

Obama had years of a Democratic Congress and he did nothing. The reason the Dems lost Congress and most of the Senate was because people wanted results and that stopped Obama reckless federal spending idiot! And next November they will replace Obama. So cuddle with your Essence while it lasts Crystalball. Obama will be voted out and Mitt will be voted in.

Cuddle with my Essence? For real? Your inference is that we worship the President? Well then I guess we worshipped Blill Clinton too and the others before him. Those of you who can't see pass color, and that's really what this all boils down to, especially when he was all but forced to show his birth certificate like a slave showing his papers just causes the wagons to encircle our brother that much closer. Even if he by some chance THE PRESIDENT is not re-elected, Mitt Romney will send this country straight to hell and everyone that voted for him will deserve just what they get. Black people are survivors no matter what. If you don't want us here, the slave master should never have brought our ancestors. New day, new time...... The Bible says the First shall be last and the last shall be first. Now you see how the Native Americans felt when the white man came and stole the land from them. You reap what you sow and what goes around, comes around. See ya at the polls oh and by the way, the voter ID laws....ain't gonna work. Nice try, but we gotcha.

Was he supposed to personally

Was he supposed to personally hand out 40 acres and a mule to all black people? I don't know what President is responsible for helping one specific race of people. That is down right ridiculous. Black people thinking like this is why we are in the economic situation we're in. The president can't walk into the oval office every morning and make decisions that you will see tomorrow. There is a process, there is legislation that is passed today that will trickle down and affect us in 5-10 years. I do know his first priority was to help this nation not face the 2nd great depression and I'm glad he handled that. You complain about things not being better, but things would've been a hell of a lot worse had he not done his damn job!

Obama promised Change and

Obama promised Change and that is not what he delivered. Disapproval of President Obama’s handling of the economy is heading higher — alongside gasoline prices — as a record number of Americans now give the president “strongly” negative reviews on the 2012 presidential campaign’s most important issue. ncreasingly pessimistic views of Obama’s performance on the economy — and on the federal budget deficit. Obama had his chance and we have the right to vote him out.

Any time fuckas like you are

Any time fuckas like you are going hard on a black blog, you're scared shitless. Your bullshit rants and posts will not change the fact that 95% of the black population is going to vote for the President. The only time you come to black folk is when you need the vote. Nobody is going to vote for Mitt the Twit and end up with four more years of Georgy Porgie. Not going to happen. Boo Bitch and Bye.

Your vote did not vote Obama

Your vote did not vote Obama into power. And Obama is not worried about people who all vote the same this cycle. I don't see Obama having fundraisers in the hood or the black church. It's independents, Swing States and Women who will decide this election. Obama is not even catering to your vote ding bat. LMAO@ bragging that 95% of Blacks all vote on the democratic plantation. LMAO what an idiot.
Just Me 2's picture

Oh well maybe you need to

Oh well maybe you need to check out the Obama grass roots groups in Iowa and such. It will come down to the swing states and women, you are right. And guess what with your racist ass, I don't live in the hood and I don't belong to a black church. I am a registered Independent and it is our vote in conjunction with the swing states and the women's vote that WILL put him over the top. Dream on crack head.
