President Obama isn't apologizing for calling rapper Kanye West a "jackass" in 2009. In fact, the president still considers West to be a jackass, albeit a talented one.

Back in 2009, an off-the-record comment by Obama, was tweeted by an ABC reporter, who wrote: "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a “jackass” for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential.”

The reporter quickly deleted the tweet, but it was retweeted by thousands of Twitter users, prompting an ABC spokesman to release a statement apologizing to the White House and CNBC.

But apparently, President Obama still doesn't think much of Kanye.

From E! Online:

When asked which hip-hop artist he prefers—Kanye or Jay-Z—Obama offered up a further presidential assessment of the former.

"Jay-Z," he replied with a smile. "Although I like Kanye. He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented."

After being reminded of the slam heard around the world, however, the president stuck to his guns regarding the outspoken performer.

"He is a jackass," he added. "But he's talented."

    Dear Mr. President:

    I think that they are ALL jackasses. Jayz, Kanye, Beyaki. According to white folks, these are our greatest cultural icons.

    While I am sad about Trayvon Martin, his death brought out the best of us, especially in the professions.

    I am proud that Greater America, and the world, get's to see that black people are not a bunch of n-words, bytches, and hoes. That there are intellectual and respected black people in all sorts of legitimate professions; and that we are not all spiritual-less buffoons rapping about our puxxays, dycks, cars, jewelry, and hoes.

    Lean not to your OWN UNDERSTANDING. Lean to the Bible and what IT says!!!

  • OutsidetheBox

    Ramen? They serve that in private schools? :rofl:

  • Redeemed777

    The phrase ” they follow after their OWN IMAGINATION ” in the Bible is saying the exact same thing—>Lean NOT to your OWN understanding.

  • Redeemed777

    For example:

    So-called SUNday christians have been taught that God does not create evil, but God ( in His Word ) says different:

    Isaiah 45:7—> I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

    They have also been bamboozled into thinking the Love of God is about emotional Love:

    That aint what the Bible calls Love..

    1 John 5:3--->For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
