This is what I dont like; This is an incomplete statement as to what was written. Obama went on to say he was the greatest entertainer of all time and he said alot more but the media as usual try to build strive and say the part that has a little negative connotation. Similarly the picture with Obama that appear as if he was noticing a woman's butt. First of all I have no problem if it was true but my case is that it is known not to be true if you watch the video but yet people of media high level media (yahoo News) still publish this to inflick damage to Barack career. We need to stop these things cause we hurting alot of young people , children when we do this. Has anyone seen how the news broadcasting how the kids were not for jackson. That is molestation at its highest level. How do you think the kids feel when they hear that the man they thought was their father was not. The world is coming to an end the immoral behaviour from the media is stink. Has anyone notice how the media report North Korea and Iran...Its like they want to say USA should fight. They report it in a way that if you were the president you would feel shame but compelled to fight. THIS MUST STOP
