Obama calls Kanye a 'jackass'...
politico ^ | 9/14/09

Posted on 09/14/2009 6:22:22 PM PDT by mathprof

ABC News reporter Terry Moran caused quite a commotion tonight on Twitter following after writing: "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a "jackass" for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential."

Although it wasn't long before Moran removed it, with over a million followers, the tweet quickly bounced around Twitter through various users.

Now, an ABC spokesperson explains to POLITICO what happened:

Crap, I agree with Obama on this one. Does that make me dirty?

Finally, something I can back our President to the hilt on.

I wonder if Kanye will say that Obama hates Black people now.

Trying to put distance between himself and his thug homies. Too late.

Was Serena Williams a jackass too? Michael Jordan?

That should make him eligible for a czar position along with the other jackasses.

Personally, I think the President should be above criticizing the tacky behavior of celebrities. And calling someone a jackass is hardly what a statesman does. Obama has no idea how to be president.

Thats how trivial this president is. he will probably have kanye and Miss swift to the White house for talks just like he did with gates and the cop.

from the link:

ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview. This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again."

Exactly how do you kiss an a$$ from the inside? Apparently CNBC is attempting it?

This accident-on-purpose was a favor to Obama. POTUS gets credit for saying Kanye West is a jackass, but it looks as if Obama didn't intend to taint his office by even officially acknowledging the rap star.

Barry’s trying to get the moderates back by acting white.

It’s a total rouge.

West is more of a jackass then Wright, Ayers, Soros, Dorhn, etc, are? I think not.

No. Even Beyonce, the girl Kanye was hoping to pump up, disapproved of his action.
If Obama had sided with Kanye West on this one, it would have shown that he unequivocally supports blacks over whites and have driven everyone who wasn’t black out of his support base.

Kaye West made a big mistake dissing a pretty white girl. Major racial incident. Kind of puts all the charges of racism in perspective.

Hey now, not so harsh. I doubt any other Kenyan-born, Indonesian-raised Muslim would, either.
