Perhaps this is a few days late but I just can't seem to get out of my head what Kanye West did the other night. It spawns many thoughts in my mind. First off, It irks me that a man would treat a young lady with such disrespect. I'm happy to see that young people are outraged by this and don't think it's "cool". Perhaps this sets a grand example for young men of what not to be like and to young women as to what not to look for in a man (if you can call him a man).
As far as President Obama's "Jackass" comment. I don't often agree with our current President but in this case I say that he saw the evidence and called it like he saw it. Leave the President alone on this one. What would Theodore Roosevelt have said about Kanye West?
So here is my ranting about this situation. What say you?

It was very uncool. He definitely was a Jackass! No doubt about it. Taylor swift however, dealt with the situation like a true lady. She is wise beyond her years.
Although I agree with Obama on this (and I can count things I agree with him on with one hand), he does tend to run off at the mouth. That is, for him to call him a jackass is not exactly presidential. To say that his actions were disrespectful or something similar would be a more presidential way to comment.
I still think Teddy would have called him a jackass! lol
Agreed. I guess it depends on how you define presidential. TR had some real humdinger insults to be sure. Andrew Jackson would have probably called him a jackass too. Actually, he probably would have challenged him to a duel.
Andrew Jackson wouldn't have bothered to call him out. Duelling was for gentlemen.
Sorry, but that was a good one. Carry on.
I don't suppose I can add much to this discussion, as I am in complete agreement with you.

Kanye's behavior was appalling and I hope the act isn't quickly forgotten. Unfortunately the collective has an incredibly short attention span... Somebody will probably stage a stunt to take the mic from him, it will be a joke. Everybody will move on, and nobody will have learned anything.

Regarding the president; that's the closest I've heard to him taking a solid stance on anything yet. He's totally free and clear on this one. Off the record or not, I don't think any apologies are due from him or the news agencies.
"Regarding the president; that's the closest I've heard to him taking a solid stance on anything yet." I really needed that guffaw today. That one made me laugh.

LOL
Kanye West just kicked me out of my cubicle and told my office that Beyonce was a better project manager than I was.
Yo, symplectic, I'm proud of your joke an all, and Ima let you finish, but Dilbert has the funniest cubicle jokes this year!!
