The Pointer Sisters

Hey Obama, Where's Our

White House Invite?

10/6/2012 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

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.

Anita tells us she even reached out to the White House to ask about performing the hit tune for the Prez -- but heard crickets back.

So the question is, will she vote for him after the snub? Is there hope she can still sing at the W.H. -- ya gotta watch and find out.

And, in case you forgot, here are the Pointer Sisters in all their glory ...

I am 61 years old. The Pointer sister's were a group that was noticed at the time, but they were not that good. Now 37 years later one member wants the world to remember them. PLEEESE You sang songs when records where sold. When you had to buy a whole album just for one good song. The survivor Pointer Sister are too few and too old to remember how to Point. Their songs are as old as their wrinkles on their face. And if you remember their songs, you are too senile and to old to vote.

Well...here is why..the lyrics!

Now's the time for all good men
to get together with one another.
We got to iron out our problems
and iron out our quarrels
and try to live as brothers.

Obama is DIVIDING this country..the haves/the have nots...white/black. Oh yes he is. He is creating another race war.

HEY ... I am MAD that I did NOT receive a White House Invitation TOO!

After all ... I put an OBAMA/BIDEN bumper sticker on my car in 2008, so the least I should get is a free dinner at the White House - RIGHT?
