100612_pointer_launchThe Pointer Sisters are PISSED they never got an invite from President Obama to sing at the White House -- especially considering their hit song, "Yes We Can Can,  was a perfect match for his famous campaign slogan.

TMZ caught up to Anita Pointer at LAX Friday and she tells us she's hurt the Commander in Chief never banked on the opportunity to blend his famous election platform "Yes We Can" with their 1973 classic -- which happens to be about making the world a better place.
