Credit Where Credit Is Due

Just saw on Yahoo this evening that the president called Kanye West a jackass for his antics at the MTV Awards. Kudos to Barry for that astute assessment of West. Here's hoping Barry doesn't apologize.

I almost forgot. Easy to do with this little story since I don't watch MTV. But I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the graciousness of Beyonce Knowles who shared her time in the limelight with Taylor Swift, the victim of West's jackassery. West could learn a ton about class from Ms. Knowles.

But the reporter who published the story on his twitter page removed it, and ABC apologized for reporting Obama called West a jackass.

Seems the state run media covered up for Obama. They wouldn't want any Kanye West fans to be upset at the One.

I wrote about this.

Apparently you haven't read my post on this subject. Why have you stopped reading my posts?

Who says I've stopped reading your posts?

I'm not surprised the media covered this up. But it's irrelevant. Barry said it and I applaud his excellent judgement regarding West. Too bad his judgement doesn't extend to more important things or to the many radical idiots with whom he surrounds himself.

I was also pleased that President Obama made that observation. I think it is wrong that the media reporting an off the record comment, but am still glad he said it.

At first I thought it might have been a scripted leak a la Clinton's Sister Souljah comment, but when I saw the video it was clear that it was off the cuff. Good for him.
