Ludacris Obama

31Jul08

Last night on O’Reilly, Dick Morris was asked to cite the two biggest mistakes that each candidate has made. Number 1 for Barack was, in Morris’ opinion, not instantly cutting ties with his preacher when the Jeremiah Wright situation first broke out in March. Is he making the same mistake now with vulgar rapper Ludacris, who Barack seems unable to mention without complimenting?

CHICAGO (AP) — Barack Obama’s presidential campaign says a new rhyme by supporter and rapper Ludacris is “outrageously offensive” to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Republican Sen. John McCain and President Bush.

The song brags about an Obama presidency being destiny. It uses an expletive to describe Clinton, calls Bush “mentally handicapped” and says McCain doesn’t belong in “any chair unless he’s paralyzed.”

Why wouldn’t he say that Ludacris is disgusting and nobody should buy, or play, his music? Does Barack feel Reverend Wright levels of loyalty to Ludacris?

The senator, contemplating a run for president, met privately with Ludacris on Wednesday. “We talked about empowering the youth,” said the rapper, whose real name is Chris Bridges.

Does this represent some sort of personality deficiency on the part of Obama, or is he fearful of losing the adamant support of black voters, or of being viewed as less hip?

“As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to,” campaign spokesman Bill Burton said in an e-mail statement Wednesday.

Doesn’t any and every responsible leader have a duty to condemn someone who disseminates this sort of garbage? Notice that they condemn the language, but are careful not to condemn the ‘artist.’

“This song is not only outrageously offensive to Sen. Clinton, Rev. Jackson, Sen. McCain and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. “

So why the compliments from Barack’s campaign?

“While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics.”
