  1. Haha…I thought it was funny when I heard that he said this (and I agree with him).

    What if Big Bad Bush or Darth Cheney had said this days after West’s “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” quip? I still would have thought it was funny…

  2. Of course we all agree with his comment, but why would I be glad to have a President who knows who Kanye West is? Shouldn’t he have better things to do than follow shallow media/MTV controversies?

    I wonder what you all would have thought if President Bush was caught off camera calling Kanye a jackass after he said that Bush didn’t care about black people.

    What does it say when everyone is more outraged about him snagging a microphone from a mediocre irrlevant singer than him making a very offensive statement about the President? Kanye was a jackass then and he is one now.
