President Obama Beyonce

A White House spokesman is defending the White House administration's decision to remove a petition targeting President Obama's friend, Beyonce, from a White House website.

The website, called We The People, was created during Obama's re-election campaign to give the average American citizen a voice in government.

The anti-Beyonce petition was started by a health advocate who believes Beyonce's multimillion dollar endorsement deal with Pepsi sends the wrong message in light of First Lady Michelle Obama's much-publicized fight against childhood obesity.

A White House spokesman told Politico.com the petition was deleted because the White House does not have "jurisdiction over" the Inauguration.

The Inauguration is “not something the White House actually has jurisdiction over," said the spokesman. "Since the Presidential Inaugural Committee is a whole separate entity that handles the Inauguration … the White House doesn’t control who is singing at the inaugural ceremony.”

Who are they fooling? Wasn't it the president who hand-picked the performers?

Blogger Rhymeswithsnitch.com points out an obvious contradiction -- a petition targeting rapper Lil Flip was allowed to remain on the White House website.

      Luvn am not sure if it benefits any particular group. My company is one of the sponsors. I used to run in their half marathons but this will be my first run since I had my daughter so am trying to ease into with the 5k. nobody wants to run with me :(

      shoot I see many ppl walk the route all the time. It's really fun

    • Unshakable

      @Luvn...don't that make you feel a certain type of way? How about I went to get me a smoothie and I parked in the handicap space. Now I was wrong for doing so, but there was only two other cars there in the lot and the handicap one was the first empty space. This white guy says as I step out my car, "Are you really going to park your car there? That's for handicapped people." I felt embarrassed and I moved my car, but I should have did what you did.

      *Takes note from Luvn, who is a pro at keeping sprites in their place* :hahaha:

      @Kaybeyou.....all Luvn has to do is a "Tami "Hoodrat" Roman" and muff those sprites......or she can hike it up a notch and throw a bottle at them a la Evelyn Lozada. #helpful :rofl:

      People have way too much time & negative energy.
      Beyonce helped raise money for our Presidents campaign, she didnt just write a $4mil check. She is one of their favorite performers, so being asked to perform isnt a stretch :coffee:
