“The View” Argues About Abortion

26 09 2009

There are SO many things I *could* add to this, but I won’t. I’ll just say this for now (just to clarify a few things on the matter).

1) Capitol Punishment is NOT murder. It’s the “punishment” that some criminals recieve who have COMMITTED murder.

2) War is NOT murder. Consider Ecclesiastes 3:8 – “A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

That’s all I really wanna say on this for now.





Unredeemed.

Such A *Classy* President.

15 09 2009

President Barack Obama called hip-hop musician Kanye West a “jackass” on Monday in an off-the-record comment during an interview with CNBC, an ABC News anchor reported on Twitter.

Obama was apparently weighing in on an interruption that occurred the night before during the MTV Video Music Awards where West grabbed the microphone from teen country singer Taylor Swift during her award acceptance speech to announce his belief that Beyonce had a better music video.

“Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential,” “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran wrote Monday evening to his more than 1 million followers.

The tweet forced the network to issue an apology after the Internet quickly became abuzz over the stunning remark published on the microblogging site.

An ABC spokesperson said, “In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview,” Politico reported. “This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again.”

Moran’s tweet has since been deleted, but can still be accessed.

West, who is no stranger to controversy, apologized for the incident after Sunday night’s MTV broadcast and again Monday night during an interview on the premiere of NBC’s “Jay Leno Show.”

West told Leno he’s going to take some time off to reflect and that “it was rude, period.”

“I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve. If there’s anything I could do to help Taylor in the future or help anyone, I’d like to,” he said.

The White House had no immediate comment on the matter, Politico reported.

I am not condoning what Kanye did at all. I think it was rude and extremely immature of him. However, for the President of the United States of America to sit there and say such a thing is not exactly professional either. And *off the record*…? Reputation is who people believe you to be. Character is who you are when no one is watching. Although… it seems to be a re-occurring trend in Washington… *cough* Clinton. Such a *classy* president we have. How our hearts must swell with pride…! O_o
