“President Obama has shown a firm commitment to using government to help foster growth. He has formed sensible budget policies that are not dedicated to protecting the powerful, and has worked to save the social safety net to protect the powerless. Mr. Obama has impressive achievements despite the implacable wall of refusal erected by Congressional Republicans so intent on stopping him that they risked pushing the nation into depression, held its credit rating hostage, and hobbled economic recovery.”

Stop the DJ, pause your iPod and for 2 hours Oct 16 at 9pm watch the second Presidential Debate. If you are looking for a place, Harlem Food Bar will be one of several showing the debate Tuesday at 9PM here in Harlem. For 2 hours CNN political correspondent Candy Crowley will moderate President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney in this Town Hall style format.
For the first debate I was in Miami and asked a buddy/DJ friend of mine “what bar/lounge is the best place to watch the debate here in South Beach?” he said “Why? nowhere” He was right we ended up at our hotel lounge which was lacking quite a bit of… shall we say flavor and was mostly routing for… shall we say the other guy. Needless to say it is great to be back in NYC and specifically Harlem and have as many options as we do to view the debates. Thanks to places like Harlem Food Bar, Lido’s, The 5 and Diamond, Corner Social and other Harlem businesses that help to keep us informed and send the message that this Presidential Election is an important one for Harlem and for our Country’s future.
