The United States of America is under attack, and our President was on a radio show hosted by "The Pimp with a Limp!!!"



Obama Chat with ‘Pimp with the Limp’ DJ Laz Airs on 9/11 Morn



President Obama was heard on the South Florida airwaves this 9/11 Anniversary morning in a 10-minute radio interview with Miami’s “Pimp with the Limp” DJ Laz from 106.7 WRMA-FM.

“You’re big time. You’ve got Pitbull and Flo Rida and all these guys just beating a path to your door,” Obama said, buttering up Laz. “And so I’m hoping that I can get a little of that magic from you in this interview.”

The two talked tunes, TV, football and top topics of the 2012 campaign. Obama did not mention the terror attacks that took place 11 years ago today, a fact his critics were quick to point out.

He “avoided talking about 9/11 on 9/11′s anniversary, but made time to mock the Dolphins bad record,” noted the Miami Herald.

Some Republicans circulated a link to the Herald article to claim that Obama was being disrespectful of the anniversary with the lighthearted banter and inappropriately injected politics into what has traditionally been an apolitical day.

It turns out, however, that President Obama was not speaking live. The interview had been pre-taped and was supposed to air on Monday, an Obama campaign official told ABC News.

Guidance from the president’s campaign sent to reporters over the weekend shows that the president conducted the interview around noon on Sunday during a stop in Melbourne, Fla. Aides said at the time that it was to be embargoed until air on Monday morning.

A spokeswoman for WRMA-FM confirmed that the interview was taped Sunday but did not explain why it was held until Tuesday.

The president has been regularly conducting local TV and radio interviews during his visits to battleground states, often talking about lighter subjects — pop culture, food and sports – in addition to major policy items in an effort to bolster his popular appeal.

I feel safe!!!!!

Has it been common for sitting presidents to make these kinds of appearances? Is this going to be a new campaign strategy? Does the show or station have to then give equal time to other candidates?

What would "America" do if this was the French Embassy?

He has no time for the U.S. We are under attack and hes going to J-Z's club hosted by Beyonce for a fundraising event. If he loses this election it will take an eviction notice to get him out of the WH.

From the CNN article:

In a statement on his Facebook page, Morsy called on Egyptian diplomats in Washington "to take legal action against those people who seek to ruin relationships and discussions between people and countries."

What kind of "legal action" can one take against free speech?

Give Obama time he and Holder will show you how they will end free speech.

During the call, the statement said, Obama told Morsy that "he rejects efforts to denigrate Islam, but underscored that there is never any justification for violence against innocents and acts that endanger American personnel and facilities."

I find the bolded portion especially concerning. It leaves open the possibility of violence against those who actually produced or performed in the movie as I am certain that the muslims would not consider them innocents. He should have said something more to the effect that words are words, and violence is violence. That in America we protect the right of free speech but will meet violence with greater violence.

Kind of ironic ... you'd think that the fellas in charge in Egypt and Libya would recognize that Obama has been a "patsy" for them; and yet, they don't head off this stuff, just two months before the election; events which could sway the election away from their patsy. A hard line with a new POTUS could, at least, put a damper on US foreign aid to them, if they don't come up with the perps & deal with them before the election.
