The Pointer Sisters

Hey Obama, Where's Our

White House Invite?

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

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 ...

This song make me happy: "Ahh, and we've got to make this land a better land, than the one in which we live. . . .I know we can make it, I know that WE CAN, I know darn well that we can work it out (oh yes we can, I know we CAN CAN, yes we CAN CAN, why can't we get together--oh YES we CAN CAN!" :)

Can't believe anyone wants to see him in the white house after that atrocious debate. If he gets elected again after that, this country is a lost cause. He's been in office for almost four years and if he can't articulate what his views are without a teleprompter then he's a mouthpiece. Never voted for him, never will.

No worries Anita, Obambi hasn't thanked the multi-million donors either. He just takes, takes, takes. Like Bill Maher said, he took my million dollars and spent it on weed. Yep, couldn't have happened to nicer guy.

An invite is not going to happen. Just enjoy your royalties and 4 minutes of fame from the media.
