Legendary actor/comedian Bill Cosby talks about his support for President Obama in 2008 and now in 2012.
"I'm disappointed at people who don't look at the woes and the trouble given to this man. People blatantly speaking out against his color, wasting time, starting up new stories about whether or not he was born here, saying things that they can't prove. ... People want to make [his job] as difficult as the one that Sisyphus had. And then when you see that he made promises and said things and the people who were supposed to be working with him didn't. The people who were supposed to be working, even for another party, didn't care about the American people. They wanted to get him. When people make statements like "I hope he fails," you can't color that any other way except the way it's said."
