Cain Slams Obama for Bringing 'Poisonous' Rapper to White House

Presumptive presidential candidate and talk-show host Herman Cain says the controversial rapper known as “Common” — who has glorified police killers and sang about burning President George W. Bush — would not be invited to his White House. Cain also indicated Wednesday on Steve Malzberg’s WOR radio show he will announce May 21 he is running in 2012.

Malzberg noted that President Barack Obama’s press secretary Jay Carney Wednesday defended inviting the rapper — whose real name is Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. — to a White House poetry reading by saying he has a broader message.

“Here’s the deal: In a Herman Cain administration, I, nor my wife, would ever invite someone to the White House that has espoused that kind of poisonous rhetoric — we simply wouldn’t have done it,” Cain said. “Does Michele Obama have a right to do that? Yes. Does the president have the right to do that? Yes. But I think it says a very bad thing.”

Cain said the rapper, who also has songs with misogynic lyrics, “does not have a broader message.”

“So the fact that they want to defend this — I don’t think they are defending it on a very broad ground whatsoever,” he said. “I, or my wife, or my family would have never invited him to the White House — they can defend it all they want to, but it’s not going to change the fact that they have an arrogant disregard — an arrogant disregard — for many of the values that most of us believe in, in this country.”

Malzberg asked Cain, who won the recent South Carolina GOP debate and has been doing well in the polls, when he was going to make up his mind about running for president.

“I am going to make an official decision on May 21st, in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Centennial Olympic Park — downtown Atlanta — at High Noon,” Cain said. “Save that date.”

Malzberg then posed the same question he asked Donald Trump several days ago and wondered if he walked into a casino and placed a bet that the former Godfather Pizza CEO was going to make a presidential run, “how would I do?” He got a similar answer from Cain.

“Let’s say that unlike most casinos your odds would be better than the house.”

LOL, while it's definitely known what is spoken in Common's poetry/raps, I agree it's pretty stupid of the President to invite Common to the White House.

However, Jon Stewart completely owned Fox News on the Daily Show last night, in particular, Sean Hannity.

CLASSIC Jon Stewart Rap Rips Fox News For The Common Controversy

Noah Davis | May 12, 2011, 9:17 AM

It wasn't Eminem in the lunch line, but it was close.

On Wednesday night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart ripped into Fox News for the ridiculous controversy surrounding rapper Common's visit to the White House.

After playing a clip of Karl Rove sarcastically saying, "Yeah, let's invite a misogynist to the While House," the host shook his head in frustration.

"Are we really doing this again? For this guy? Common? The guy from the Gap ads. The guy from the Queen Latifah rom-com. Elmo's friend," he said.

After noting some of the phrases that were offending Fox anchors, Stewart read one of the worst: "First time I shot her, I shot her in the side/hard to watch her suffer/with the second shot, she died."

"I hope a killer like that is never allowed anywhere near the President of these United States," Stewart said.

Oh wait, Johnny Cash wrote those lyrics.

And he was honored by George Bush at a ceremony in 2002.

Later, there was a takedown of Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Greta van Susteren, and, most poignantly, a clip of Sean Hannity supporting Ted Nugent who said he'd like to put a machine gun into Hillary Clinton's mouth.

"It's almost impossible to express how ridiculous this and you all [pundits] are at this point. It's beyond a caricature of your own cartoon," Stewart said.

And then he rapped -- using a metronome for a beat -- because "the only way to express the ridiculousness of Fox News is through a musical iteration of the spoken word."

LOL, yeah, I'm not sure what JC was talking about.

On Hannity's America, he was reading excerpts from Common's poetry/raps without going through the whole song. He was reading the excerpts then saying things like "That sounds like killing cops to me." :rolleyes:

It may be and it may not be, but just pulling excerpts and ignoring any preceding or succeeding words doesn't prove anything.

LOL, no problem. I'm a Conservative but even Fox News drives me nuts with their hypocrisy and overloaded opinions. An open mind in news reporting would always be appreciated.

"Delia's Gone"

Delia, oh, Delia Delia all my life
If I hadn't have shot poor
Delia I'd have had her for my wife
Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

I went up to Memphis
And I met Delia there Found her in her parlor
And I tied to her chair
Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

She was low down and trifling
And she was cold and mean
Kind of evil make me want to Grab my sub machine
Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

First time I shot her I shot her in the side
Hard to watch her suffer
But with the second shot she died
Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

But jailer, oh, jailer Jailer,
I can't sleep 'Cause all around my bedside
I hear the patter of Delia's feet
Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

So if you woman's devilish
You can let her run
Or you can bring her down and do her
Like Delia got done
Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone


Found the lyrics. Doesn't actually sound like a very good song.

Well if he invited that guythen he definitely should invite Axl
Rose............:laugh:

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I had to put her
Six feet under
And I can still hear her complain


I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I knew I miss her
So I had to keep her
She's buried right in my back yard


I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
She bitched so much
She drove me nuts
And now I'm happier this way


I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I had to put her
Six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

here is one for the ladies.....

the Dixie Chicks........and since they hated Bush it would be even BETTER for Obama to invite them!!

Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
All through their high school days
Both members of the 4H Club
Both active in the FFA
After graduation Mary Anne went out lookin'
for a bright new world
Wanda looked all around this town
and all she found was Earl

Well it wasn't two weeks
after she got married that
Wanda started gettin' abused
She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses
And make-up to cover a bruise

Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
She let the law take it from there
But Earl walked right through that restraining order
And put her in intensive care

Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atalnta
On a red eye midnight flight
She held Wanda's hand as they
worked out a plan
And it didn't take long to decided

That Earl had to die
Goodbye Earl
Those black-eyed peas
They tasted all right to me Earl
You're feeling weak
Why don't you lay down
and sleep Earl
Ain't it dark
Wrapped up in that tarp Earl

The cops came to bring Earl in
They searched the house
high and low
Then they tipped their hats
and said 'Thank You ladies
if you hear from him let us know'

Well the weeks went by and
Spring turned to Summer
And Summer faded into Fall
And it turns out he was a missing person
who nobody missed al all

So the girls bouth some land
and a roadside stand
Out on Highway 109
They sell Tennessee ham
and strawberry jam
And they don't
lose any sleep at night 'cause

Earl had to die
Goodbye Earl
We need a break
Let's go out to the lake Earl
We'll pack a lunch
And stuff you in the trunk Earl
Well is that all right
Good Let's go for a ride
Earl hey
