Awesome. It's nice to see the "President" is still normal and has a normal opinion
He is an awesome man. Tells it like it is, and exactly how we all felt

The President of The United States Of America is one of the coolest person walking on earth. Mr. Obama ROCKs! He is just being true and honest; he does not candy coat the world. He is only human being just like the rest of us. The only difference is he is the president, and unfortunately, everyone is watching every single move he makes and every single word he says. All people does is to criticize. Let us just Unite and Cooperate and work hand on hand to help this country survive. I love the president.

Bravo Mr. President. He is the President but he is also just a simple human being like us. And he was stating what the majority of us felt. I think the fact that the tape was relased is more disturbing than him calling someone, who indeed is, a jackass.

Onto Kanye, he is wrong, apologized, Taylor accepted so cut him some slack too. I do not like the guy but fair is fair.

Obama should never apologize. What's up with everything and all this apologizing when someone speaks the truth. He was a jackass.
It's getting real sad that every time someone speaks they have to apologize to someone.

Someone said the 'reporters' had to apologize to Obama. Is this true?
Why should reporters have to apologize for an audio and video of what the president said? They didn't say it. He did.
If the President doesn't want to be quoted, he shouldn't talk.

When Kanye opens his mouth all one hears is hee-haw, hee-haw. He is without a doubt a jackass.
