Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., the former chaplain of the Boston Red Sox and Boston Fire Department, who later founded Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Va., has launched “Obama Watch,” a weekly commentary carried on more than 250 radio stations.
“I am an African-American, but I am American first,” announced Bishop Jackson, “and I want my country to succeed. I want President Obama to succeed only to the extent that his policies are right for the country, and that is clearly not the case so far. I have been disturbed by the direction in which our new president is taking America. I intend to watch the administration’s actions closely and call them as I see them.”
Commentary by the Harvard Law School graduate, who studied theology at Harvard Divinity School, is carried over the Radio America network.
