Yea. Planned or not, who cares? The Prez called it.

But after this, he might want to cease commenting on non-National issues lest he get dragged into all sorts of silly controversies.

I actually found it to be funny and it sure makes Obama look like he really is one of the rest of us.
So he called Kanye a jackass. So what?

You really don't get the difference?

Anyway, I agree with the President, and, I have to admit to some confusion about this whole 'non-presidential' thing. Aren't these the same people who condemn the President for not acting not 'regular' folks?
Our young people need to hear our president say these sorts of things. Boorish behavior has been okay for too long. It is about time we had a president speak out against it.

Actually it was a conspiracy. Kanye and Obama were sitting in the white house watching The Playa's Club and Obama said "Kanye I'm losing my white followers man." so they devised a plan for Kanye to insult the first white person who won an award over a black person so that Obama could call him a Jackass (off the record of course knowing that it would be leaked) and gain back the support of his white followers.

Everything is a conspiracy.

Why, of course, you're right. How foolish of me to not see the obvious.

There's no news there, because Kanye fits the name....he probably said the same thing about Serena.
