Obama: "Cut the President some slack."
(Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.tv ...
Obama needs to apologize to West at next year’s MTV-A-Corn.
This is fabulous. We’ll be seeing a LOT of this one!
What’s even more exciting is, it’ll ignite a skirmish between the press and the Prez. Hide and watch.
This MAY have been meant in a very complimentary way since the symbol of the RAT party is, well, A JACKASS!
For once, I agree with him.
This is a Sister Souljah planned moment. That should be clear to anybody with any knowledge of the Chairmans operation.
This is the best press Obama is getting these days. It makes him look hip enough to know who Kanye is and smart enough to know the guy is a tool.
“Cut the president some slack”
pompous jackass himself
I wonder if he talks about himself in the 3rd party, to Michelle
That’s what I thought. This is the first thing I agree with 0bozo about. When he said he wasn’t going to apologize I had to appreciate that too. A lesson for Republicans; don’t apologize for telling the truth.
I thought that too. A completely scripted strategic “oops.”
In that one instant, I actually found him likable. I think I need to take a shower now.
The way he says it is sort of “I hate to dog on a brother” lol. But the tone also implies that he has prior knowledge of Kanye West’s jackassery. He must have met him at some Dem event and not been impressed.
Nah it wasn’t scripted but they are employing it as such after the fact.
Takes one to know one.
This is only out because President Obama decided that the reaction to the leaked audio was positive.
CNN would never have let this out otherwise — because it was shot during set-up, and set-up IS off the record, and should be, unless the President says something that is truly news-worthy.
If he called the Acorn workers — Jackasses, then I might believe it was a leak.
It takes a “JACKASS” to Know a “JACKASS!” so I must agree with You. We have finally found something that OBOZO has special expertise in knowing and understanding and hence being able to identify with crystal clear vision! not clouded by inebriants and mind altering drugs he has confessed to partaking in the past....
Maybe my tinfoil hat needs adjustment, but I can’t help wondering if this wasn’t orchestrated by Obama and West. By calling West a “jackass” Obama portrays himself as a fairminded person who is willing to slam someone of his own race. This will help his image as viewed by those in the mushy middle. It will detract from the claims that he is a racist.
Talk about a narcissistic jackass!
Scary that the President of the US knows about this, much less would comment on a MTV show.
God help us.
That was my thought too. He wanted this out. And it was an easy one—who doesn’t think Kanye is a jacka** as this point? He probably had the word jacka** polled—it just beat out “bully” (being a little more edgy and hip).
For the first time, I saw him as a person and not a politician. Getting real, so to speak. Why would he want to go off the record for that? That's what doesn't seem right. If the guy is a jackass and all the world (right and left) knows it, why try to be PC?
O-Hole is racist!!
It also fills up the MSM/SCM with this tabloid stuff instead of more relevant topics.
Yep, calculated to make him look like a regular guy. Aimed at the center and center-right. Trying to staunch defections from the middle. The left couldn’t care less so it doesn’t hurt him there. Big Media is so complicit in promoting and defending this Marxist dork they probably sat down and planned it with him.
It’s nice that you’re not cynical. : ) lol
Wake up and smell the coffee of Obama’s Sister Soulja moment.
