I believe the correct term is, “Chicago Jesus.”
Spike Lee said President Barack Obama is “not perfect,” but that expectations for his first term”were way too high.”
“He was a savior, black Jesus,” the actor and director told CNN’s Don Lemon in an interview airing in its entirety Saturday. “Look, I don’t care who it was. Expectations were way too high.”
Lee accused Republicans of gridlocking Congress to prevent Obama from winning a secondterm — “a Congress that’s solidified as saying, ‘Whatever you do, we’re blocking that. We’re blocking, and every breath we take, we’re going to do what we can that you don’t get a second term. Bottom line. And if it hurts America in the process, tough business.’”
When asked if Obama has lived up to his promises, Lee answered: “Look, the man’s not perfect. Who’s perfect?”
Lee said he raised more than $1 million at his Obama fundraiser in January.
