Leave it to Obama ...

It is truly refreshing to have an American President who is articulate, intelligent, and who dares to call it like he sees it ... Today it would appear that President Obama, in a candid conversation with CNBC's John Harwood, called Kanye West a "JACKASS."

News of the presidential edict slipped out via Tweets from staff belonging to rival ABC.

One comment in particular caught my attention, and even if it was meant in jest, says is well:

"Terry Moran, a former White House correspondent, logged on to Twitter and typed: "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a 'jackass' for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential.""

I dunno ... I think President Obama is just saying what most reasonable people are already thinking ... Gotta like someone who has the nerve to call it like he sees it and call a spade a spade, or in this case a jackass a jackass.

indeed, Obama makes Harper look as lame as he is

two thoughts:

one, we could hope that Obama would put the Tar Sands in their place, and

two, his speech to Congress on Health Care was so right on - I just hope he has saved some of that excellent rhetoric for global warming when Copenhagen rolls around in December, American Presidents do not normally address Congress more than once per term ...
