Let's be honest for a second though. It's not like Obama is really doing anything else. He has all his minions carrying out his "let's destroy the U.S. asap" campaign on his behalf. So I can totally see him having plenty of free time to pass notes.

I agree@ # 33...I love President Obama, but didn't like the message he relayed through his press secretary. I think he did it now because he knew it looked bad that other world leaders sent their condolences.

Here go the black/white slurs to the president. Jackson's death was HUGE. That's why he wrote a letter, there have been other black entertainers that have died and he did not write a letter, so please get over it. I am white and see no racial discrimination in this at all.

Here go the black/white slurs to the president. Jackson's death was HUGE. I am white and see no racial issues with this. And to the posters who say Obama is the one ruining our country, he stepped into office when it was nearly ruined already from 8 years of the worst president in history. Don't give us that BS, he's trying to fix the hell caused by the Bush wack, who should be in jail for murder of our soldiers and starting a war when we were not attacked by the country. Billions of dollars a month on the war and our economy was tanking, let's be real and put the blame on whose fault this actually is. A president cannot cause this horrible financial and economic situation in 5 months. But a president can cause it over 8 years of lies and deceit and spending for the rich.

Answer to question #1: Because they are white and Obama is only half. Obama only wants to identify with his black "culture". AND Obama may have been molested my MJ as well and holds a special place for him in his heart! C'mon, everyone, it's not okay to be a racist...unless it's toward a white person!!

Blah blah blah Bob S. Kiss a little more a@@ there, pal. What about the lies and deceit that Osama...oops...Obama has ALREADY put this country through?! And I think that is he is going to write a letter to ANYONE, it should be the Farrah's family! She suffered for years with cancer, something that touches us all, NOT MJ who only touched little boys, All you morons who voted for this douchebag are slowly waking up to a rude awakening.

@ Bob S,

I appreciate quacks like Bob. Reading posts from Liberals make me thank God for giving me a brain. Anyone with a lick of sense realizes the economy WAS not nearly as bad as the liberal media made it out to be during Bush's last remaining months in office. Economies run in cycles, but the housing mess created by Barney Frank (who should be in jail on child molestation charges along with his former male prostitute bf) and Chris Dodd are solely responsible for. Obama has already proposed more spending than EVERY previous administration COMBINED. So please, spare us your moronic liberal talking points and get some new material. Socialism has failed everywhere else it has been tried. Why do you think Carter is the worst President in American history? Obama will see the same fate with his Socialist ideologies as well.

So grow up

Does this cigarrette huffin palooka ever do his job instead of running around the world burning jet fuel, appearing on late night comdey shows and going to townhall meeting set up with easy questions for him? Does he ever sit down in the Oval Office and actaully work besides give speeches from a teleprompter ? He is the manchurian candidate created by George Sorres and Hollywood. HE even has a Hollywood relations working in the White House? When was the last time Hollywood was significant in running the country? An industry that makes terrible movies nowadays not worth crap, and obviously has an agenda from the Left?

Don't count on this guy being gone in 2012....Think Iran just a fraudent election?? IN fact, don't count on having anymore elections with this phony Holllywood Deity in office.

I'm sure Obama will be writing to Farah's family, Ed MacMahon's family and the family of Billy Mays as well. NOT.

My pet goat,

Sadly you are right. And his Hollywood relations staff has the Muslim jackoff from the Harold and Kumar bombs on the payroll. That ugly moron actually put his acting career on hold to join the Obama cult. You are dead on about the Dems stealing the election in '12. They know good and well after 4 miserable years with this headcase in office there's no way they'll win reelection, so why do you think they put the White House and Acorn in charge of the Census? They're going to redraw every red county in the nation.

If I have to see Michelle O squatting in the White House garden with an arse as big as a southern veranda, grinning that bucktooth grin with brownmarks all over her legs I'm going to hurl.

"You don't know what the President does in private or public ."

That's exactly the problem you goob!! As citizens we have every freakin' right to know what our President does in his private and public life. Espeically the public part for crying out loud!! This is the most closed off, secretive administration ever. If Bush had been an 1/8 this stand-offish the media would have gone nuts demanding he resign ASAP!!!
