Aw Pell Yes: Obama Slow Jams the News with Jimmy Fallon

I love this.  Critics have been nothing but critical of President Obama from day one, but they can’t stop him from having some fun. He has charisma and a personality (something one candidate in the Republican field can’t seem to find or make up his mind about). Take notes people. It’s called like-ability.

“I’m President Barack Obama, and I, too, would like to Slow Jam the News,” said Obama.  Good Job, Mr. President. Kudos to the Roots and Jimmy Fallon as well!!!

This video will get millions of views and make people aware of what is going on with student loan funding, Pell grants and the potential rise in interest rates.  Many of the viewers will be young people who don’t follow politics.  They will be able to easily understand why this is a pocket-book issue of them and how it impacts their future.  Obama needs to see huge youth vote numbers to win in November.  I believe this was a smart move for him.

If it’s ok for Santorum to take news crews with him on a hunting trip and Gingrich to talk about building a colony on the moon, I really dare crazy Right wing folks to have a problem with Barack Obama using some humor to get a serious point across to young people.

If you don’t get it, you may not be part of the intended audience.

  1. Ha,ha,ha,ha. Your right about critics being negative about the President since day one. After all, once he became President, he step into a very large hole filled with problems that were left by others before him. He stated that it would take time, maybe not during his first term, but it will recover. Like most americans who may have hoped for a speedy recovery and it didn’t happen, are now tired and ready to see some changes. I admire The President for taking on such a HUGE problem that we all face today. But changes take time and we must have patience and believe in our leader. I hope he wins a second term and is able to bring America back on it’s feet. For the Homeless, hungry and the poor are laying on their backs. For history’s sake, i hope he will be looked apon as a man who did what others couldn’t or wouldn’t, and he did. Thank you. Mocha6ft3
