Will.I.am Feeling Some Type Of Way About Pres. Obama [VIDEO]
It is safe to say that President Obama has some haters. Trust me just watch the news and you will find out quickly. One of Barack’s famous supporters drops some words for his President. They may surprise you.
I can understand how some people maybe upset that the President is not living up to his promises. I hear it all the time at work. SMH As a Obama supporter, I think he is doing a great job in leading this country. There is way to much to clean up in just a short period of time. Plus his opponents don’t want to come together and work for the common good of the American people.
I think as a country, I think we need to do MORE to help make things better.
“I don’t want to hope anymore,” Will said, in reference to then-Senator Obama’s campaign slogan. “I don’t think we should hope anymore. We hoped enough. Now we have to do. We all have to do now.”
Will.i.am, John Legend, Common and dozens of celebrities appeared in “Yes We Can,” which sampled and reinterpreted Obama’s New Hampshire Primary speech. After creating the song, Will said he was inspired because, “that speech made me think of Martin Luther King…” The song went on to win an Emmy Award, and Obama won the election, becoming America’s forty-third president. After a wave of economic decline, senate turnover, low approval ratings, “Birthers” and Tea Party race-baiting, Deborah Solomon asked Will.i.am if he too was disappointed in President Obama.
“I don’t feel disappointed,” Will added. “I feel like, ‘Argggh! Speak louder!’ I feel like, Do something! I feel like jumping in.”
