    I was under the false pretense that this guy was intelligent.

    The message withstanding, what a stammering jackass.

    Most people stammer when they're furious -- which he obviously was. But it's hard to be calm in a situation like that.

    It's stunning that he actually said what he did at the end of the tape, but he voiced something that -- regardless of whether it's true or not -- many, many people in this country feel today. It'll take a long time for hthe president to re-gain the trust of many Americans.

    The tragedy was not Bush's fault, but as the commander-in-chief the President must bear a lot of the ultimate responsibility for the Federal Government's failures this last week. As Truman once noted, the buck stops at his desk.

    It's okay to criticize how something works, but if you have an opportunity to be on TV, you should do your homework and present a clear and concise argument... instead of one long run-on setence. He did more damage than anything.

    Cite for me some specific examples please. I've been glued to the coverage since last weekend and haven't seen or heard one instance of what you're claiming. If you're going to throw that out there, back it up.

    Many people feel GWB hates black people. BRILLIANT!

    Liberal or conservative, there is NO defending Kanye's ignorant and incoherent tirade.

    After looking at that clip for the 1st time, I can firmly say that I didn't find it funny, nor do I think Kanye came across as a "stammering jackass"....

    There's levels of frustration that many of us perpetually endure, and we are trained to turn the other cheek. At times, however, a person reaches a boiling point. Looking at the tape, regardless of how incoherent, unscripted, and inarticulate the man may have come across, he was clearly being [B]sincere[/B].

    Underneath all the "stammering" and "assumptions", I think there was quite a bit of truth. It just so happens to be the type of truth that people don't want to come to grips with.

    All that being said, I'll agree that it wasn't the right forum to make those comments.

    Kanye was wrong:

    Bush actually cares about no one. The man has no regard or idea what it's like to suffer. White, Black, Blue, Green, doesn't matter... Bush doesn't care about anyone but the elite that give him power.

    excellent point...the problem is more one of socio-economic class than race...it just so happens that the majority of the population of new orleans is black AND poor, which is always a winning combination in the minds of the political elite...

    Exactly. I couldn't have said it better myself. At the same time, who's to say it wasn't the right forum? He was raising money for a crisis mismanaged by a self-serving, criminally negligent and, to his mind, racist administration.

    He was talking truth to power when the eyes of the country and the world are on us. Everything he said was incentive for people to give (better than the canned, monotone copy being read by other well meaning celebs) because sadly our gov't, as run, can't be bothered to help poor people in need until doing the as little as possible becomes a political liability.

    Put simply, he was giving effective (and, as you said, sincere) voice to people that have no voice at a time when those very people were suffering. Good for him.
