Clinton Supporters Demand That Obama Denounce Ludacris (Ludacris on Obama's iPod a lot)
New York Observer ^ | 7/30/08 | Jason Horowitz

Posted on 07/30/2008 12:06:24 PM PDT by LdSentinal

Susie Tompkins Buell, a former Clinton bundler who has persistently criticized Barack Obama since he won the Democratic primary, is incensed about a new Ludacris song that praises Obama but also uses salty language and refers to Hillary Clinton as a "bitch."

"I think it's an opportunity for Senator Obama to stand up," said Buell, who is not a regular Ludacris listener. "I have not heard it, I have seen certain quotes from this, I don't know, do you call them songs? What do you call it?"

"It's just unacceptable. If it's true that he is on Senator Obama's iPod quite a bit, he's got to distance himself. Because this guy is very disrespectful and misogynist about women. It's not acceptable."

"It's really kind of scary when you get down to the pardon stuff," she added.

("Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers," raps Ludacris. "Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer.")

I asked her if it was at all realistic, or reasonable, to demand that Obama distance himself from someone who has absolutely nothing to do with his campaign.

"I think that he has to say something about it, because it's also a chance for him to say something. I'm looking at the words right now. 'Hillary hated on you so that bitch is irrelevant.' That is unacceptable. If Senator Obama has any kind of relationship -- this is such an endorsement of Obama, this whatever it is, this rant -- he's got to do something about it. If he doesn't, it just encourages it. "

Separately, bundler Yashar Hedayat said, "Obama has said he [Ludacris] is in his iPod. Obama has talked about personal responsibility a lot in the past month. In fact, Jesse Jackson was ranting and raving about that. So this is a chance to say, 'You know what? This is not the kind of stuff we need.'"

Obama's response:

As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to.

Then why is Ludicrus on you iPod, BO?

Of course, this Hillary supporter had no problem with the attacks on President Bush and Senator McCain.

Obama supporters decry racism but are guilty of sexism against Hillary Clinton and ageism against McCain. They violate their own politically correct beliefs. Hypocrisy, thy name is Liberal.

Hillary and her supporters have been routinely defecated on by the dispicable Obama entourage of complete lowlifes. And that includes the disgraceful drive-by media whores.

The Clintonites have every reason to be very upset.

..refers to Hillary Clinton as a "bitch."

Are the clintoon supporters upset about the accuracy or the tone of that statement?

It’s funny that Ludacris thinks that this will help BO? Since the under 30 crowd already listens to crap music (c is silent) but since the over 30 crowd are the largest voting block and 1/2 or more are female and don’t take too kindly to be refered to as what he s calling us!

This is the monster the Democrats have created. They have preached their hatred for Republicans and the whole white race for years and now it will haunt America.

And we were shocked at the goings on at the Clintoon Ehite House, this will make them look like amateurs. Can't wait to see the new Presidential Limo, probably have a big hot-tub on the back, speakers blaring, 18 inch wheels, hydrolics, dare I say a new color, Bright Yellow or Pink?

"Don't know about anyone else, but the thought of a president who is a rap fan just blows my mind..."

It is akin to sacrilege, for sure.

The very thought of a president shuckin' and jivin' into the congress for the STate of the Union speech is dispicable.

This man is a fraud, a phony, and is all about image and symbolism. His speeches consist of one-liners calculated to get the biggest rise out of his supporters (and the MSM).

There is no way he is qualified to run this country...or ever will be.
