Obama's "Ludacris" judgement in choicing associates and friends.
It looks like the Obama express has thrown yet another loyal supporter "under the bus". This time it's the rapper Ludacris aka Christopher Bridges. Obama's judgement in his associations with radical and divisive people have always been in question, and apparently this is no exception and with good reason. Barack Obama isn't just a candidate running for president, he's also a father of two daughters nine and seven years old. I remember when Obama said "If my daughters make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby". Funny he should say that. In the hiphop/rap community, The music constantly refers to women in the most derogatory terms such as "bitches", "hoes", "whores", "skanks", "sluts" etc. Ludacris headlined a fundraiser for Obama in March of 2007.
Obama called Ludacris "a talented rapper" and said that he listens to him on his "IPOD". A spokesman for Obama said after the Ludacris meltdown went critical
"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."
If that's how he feels about hiphop music, why did he have Ludacris headline his fundraiser in the first place? Also, why does he have music that he considers " degrading and misogny" on his Ipod? Why does Obama listen to music that degrades women knowing he has a wife and two young daughters? It all comes down to lack of moral character on Obama's behalf. Does it take "talent" to use hundreds of derrogatory words to make a CD? Obama considers Ludacris "talented". Why should that surprise anyone. Obama thought the world of Jeremiah Wright, Otis Mosses, and John Flagher at one time too. Pretty soon Obama is going to have to change the suspension on his bus if he keeps throwing people under it at this rate. One more thing I forgot to mention. Obama somehow keeps saying that Republicans and McCain supporters are attacking him on the issue of race. Funny, but Obama doesn't have any proof of that happening. The song "Obama is here" is extremely racially divisive, yet Ludacris is an OBAMA SUPPORTER. Watch the video and determine for yourselves.
I thought Obama didn't want his daughters listening to the degrading lyrics of rap music? Is Obama lying?
