OBAMA ES UN HOMBRE DE ESTE TIEMPO, ESO QUEDA ABSOLUTAMENTE DEMOSTRADO AL ESTAR FRENTE A LA NOTICIA Y DECLARAR SU ADMIRACIÓN POR UN COMPATRIOTA NEGRO Y DE TAN GRAN ESTATURA COMO MICAHEL. GRACIAS SEÑOR OBAMA, LA COMUNIDAD NEGRA DEBE AGRADECÉRSELO. POR NOMBRAR A OTRO QUE NO ALCANZÓ SEMEJANTE NIVEL PERO ES UN GRANDE; MARVIN GAYE. ADIOS MJ

The country is falling apart thanks to his Socialist positions, we're losing thousands of jobs per week, people are starving and losing their homes, the world is on the verge of WWIII, and this prick is going out on fancy dates, vactions, late night comedy shows, sporting events and now singling out which celebrity families to leach his name on to. This clown is a disgrace to the not only the White House, but to every sane U.S. citizen.

What about the service men and women who have died since he became prez? What about FARRAH? Did he send a letter to her father? If he sends a letter of condolence to one celebrity's family then he needs to send a letter to EVERY celebrity's family not just the BLACK ones! Jacko died because he abused drugs - every one around him knew it - but looked the other way. A druggie who died 500 million dollars in debt - not much to look up to.
At least FARRAH died an honorable death and she desperately wanted to LIVE! Obviously, Jacko did not with all the drugs he was abusing on a daily basis. Guess he wasn't thinking about his kids......

So....Obama continues to do everything he can to make this country as weak and dependant on the government as possible, attacking capitalism, using our tax dollars on dates and fancy dinners and parties, allowing terrorist dictators to get as powerful as they wish before attacking us, and decides to reach out to the guy that had a child molester's dream of a compound? What's sad, is that this doesn't surprise me in the least.

Just another example of the complete and utter incompetence of this man. Out of the three major celebs that died within in a week of one another, he picks the one that liked to sleep with little boys to show his "sympathies" for.

I wuz somewhat surprised & disappointed that Obama hadn't said anything b4 now. I know he grew up with MJ's music; he is definitely in that age demographic.

Because as of two weeks after he was murdered in cold blood, according to Liberal CNN, the White House hadn't even issued an official response to his death, Einstein.

I'm sure some Jews said "let's give Hilter more than 5 months" as well.....

Never thought I'd see the day that a President could actually make Jimmy Carter's miserable four years seem like a walk in the park. Obama has to be the anti-Christ

I'm sorry but jackson is gone and we have more important concerns as a country. All of a sudden I have not heard anything about North Korea and the threat of missle attack????? Have they stopped sailing with weapons to mourn Michael Jackson? I'm sorry but there are more important things going on in this country and I'm personally very tired of hearing about it, yes it is sad when a family loses a loved one, i've had to endure this many times amd i feel sorry for the family but enough is enough!

Why is the president sending a note to the Jackson family? If he is sending condolences, he should send them to Farrah's family as well. This just makes him look racist that he only sends sympathies to a black family when other famous people deserve the same. Then again why should this even surprise anyone, this is what our country has become.

ISNT THAT WONDERFUL OUR PRESIDENT TAKING TIME OUT OF HIS BUSY DAY OF RUNNING OUR COUNTRY AND NOT WORRING ABOUT KOREA OR THE JOBS, OR ALL THE DEBT HE GOT US INTO... AND SAID A FEW WORDS OF SORROW ABOUT THE PASSING OF AN ACCUSED PEDOPHILE/DRUGGIE.... AM SURE MANY PEDOPHILE AND DRUG ADDICTS IN THE PRISIONS LIKE TO HAVE THE PRESIDENT SAY WORDS ABOUT THEM AS WELL! MAYBE THE PRESIDENT SHOULD WORRY ABOUT HELPING AMERICANS OUT OF ALL THIS DEBT HE PUT US IN, AND A LIL LESS WORRIED ABOUT TRYING TO BE A CELEB!
