Exactly. Look what they have to do to show their hatred for the president, only making themselves look like the fool.

Come on, the girl's 19, her first award and then there's mr Big Mouth Kanye who has to ruineverything for the gal.
He could do it, but not at the VMA's. Put it on a blog or your site, a Tweet, I dunno, but not this
This little stunt just had too much racism sticking out in it. I feel sorry for Obama getting caught up in it, though. He told the absolute truth and now people are using his words for some reason.

Somebody needs to kick West's butt out of the recording business, and I would be glad to help but Beyonce took advantage of his screw up and made herself look better than he tried to do. She is really one fine woman and not racist either.

I would never trust the media with an off-the-record comment. Too bad Obama learned this the hard way.

I agree. This thread is pathetic.

I'm confused. Does "presidential" mean you mince words unnecessarily? It's not like he was talking about the president of Russia.

"Jackass" is about the nicest thing I could say about Kanye.

I agree with the president's assessment of KW although it was an unfortunate slip in front of the voracious, exploitative media.
I would like to see mandated dna tests for all Americans so we can see how we're all related to each other regardless of "race". Maybe these rabid posters would have less to say if "those people" became more like "cousin".
I'm melting...Oh, what a world, what a world.
