Obama to Luda:

Respect Your Elders!

7/30/2008 6:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0730_obama_ludacris-1It appears that Barack Obama is going to have to distance himself from yet one more supporter.

Ludacris has just released a new rap where he calls Hillary Clinton a "bitch" and says John McCain "don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed" and also throws insults at Jesse Jackson and George W. Bush. The only logical explanation has to be that Ludacris is a McCain mole!

Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton issued a statement, condemning Luda for his ridiculous lyrics.

"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. This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics.

CAN YOU SAY POLITICAL REPARATIONS? This guy is laughable. Don't you realize white people will pay forever according to people like him. He degrades women and is hurting his candidate more than helping. McCain's campaign should send him a thank you vote for shooting his candidate in the foot. Hee, Hee.

Publicly, Obama condemns it, but privately....he's probably using it as his new workout song.

Well I for 1 think Osama Bin Barack is a smart man and I the Baseball Donkey will be proud to vote for him. Now he's not as hot as my MANNY RAMIREZ MEAT but he is a visual candidate that will change this country. Now all you haters and especially you Kelli you Douche Bag will have to agree with his platform and they are the nicest shoes I've seen since huggy Bears on Starsky & Hutch. He will stop the war in Veitnam and bring our Coast Guard home to us. Isn't that enough to vote for him???? And what about his civil rights walk he did with GO SOCKS GO SOCKS Jimmy Carter in Beijing to free the Iranian hostages???? I say tear down that dress MR. Kennedy and let my people go. I'm the Baseball Monkey and that's my police veiw on the candidates. GO SOCKS GO SOCKS

Why doesn't everyone just calm the hell down! It's not like this is the first person to insult those individuals. All higher authority figures are usually the butt of some joke to begin with. I mean doesn't anyone remember when someone posted a picture of walrus in place of Hilary's picture on Wikipedia? It's just a song. Ludacris shouldn't be judged - it's only his opinion YOU IDIOTS! And if your children are controlled and influenced by the type of songs they listen to then there must be something seriously wrong with your parenting. You should teach your children right from wrong to begin with and real-life from make believe. Right? If you're not doing that then you must be raising the next Columbine child. Talk to your children folks. It's not rocket science. It's parenting. You should have more of an influence on your child than any celebrity.

The thug was one of Obama's favorites, he said he admired him, Rev. Wright was his spiritual mentor, Jesse was is his hero.
For all the people that think this mfer is the Second Coming you will see nothing will change in the World with him as our King.
Obama is an inexperienced puppet that the Democrats have pushed into the most important position in the World. They don't care who the person is as long as they are Democrat's.

If I write a song backing McCain and then saying racist hateful filled drivel then I guess It's what McCain stands for also. Just because a punk writes a song pro Obama does not mean Obama agress with that punks crap filled ideas.

Ok listen up all you in the closet racist!!! Ludacris's lyrics while not nice or politically correct is again just music protected by freedom of speech. The last person spoke of him hood children and stereo typing all rappers, while Ludacris is a graduate of the University of Geogia with B.A. in marketing, which is what this obviously is. When Ozzie Osbourne or Kid Rock or Kiss do or say some of the crazy wild unmoral things then it's nothing but when a rapper says anything to get attention for new album it condemns every black man! Atleast be man enough to wear your hoods in public cowards!

If McCain can sweep away the geriatric fog for just a sec, he ought to make this stupid "song" his own and have his people pumping it into the streets across the whole country. Everybody sucks! Vote for Jesus!

I think that the African American community believe that thay have one of their own running for President. That is rediculous, he wants nothing more then to distance himself from the African American Community and anything that goes with it. He is not your "brother" he doesn't think like you, he wants to be the first African American President but he will be more white then any President has ever been.

Rap music is eating itself within. Rap music is like a 5$ crack head. You soon will see it laying in the gutter. Ludicrous is a good example of what bad education ,poor parenting ,a low IQ and a warp sense of reality can do to a preson. People, don't let your kids grow up to be rappers.....unless they are RETARDS!!!!!!

Offensive or not- it is free speech and Obama should be well aware of that.
