Spike Lee used to be Obama’s biggest fan. He even compared him to Christ.
In 2008 Spike told reporters, “You can divide history. BB Before Barack. AB After Barack.”
But that was back in 2008.
After three-and-a-half years Spike finally sees that Obama is not the black Jesus, after all.
The Politico reported:
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-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 second term — “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?”
