    The Obama's have every right to have him to the WH. It's all our House, including his.

    However, I'd prefer a president who didn't invite people like that.
    Screw that. Side with George H.W. Bush. "Cop Killer" still makes sense to target. Don't try to differentiate.

    Is it a side-issue? Certainly. I wouldn't spend nearly this much time derailing it.

    I'm with Stewart on this one. Some conservatives are so desperate to bash this president they'd rather just lie and act offended at lyrics that they wouldn't even blink an eye at if it were a conservative saying.

    It's sad and pathetic.
    I thought after the Tuscon shooting we were supposed to tone down the rhetoic? A map with crosshairs over a district is out, but lyrics about guns and cop killing is in?

    Sheeeit, If i were President I'd invite 2pac to my house, I don't give a ****. It be nice to get him to come out of hiding from wherever he's making his posthumous albums.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Politicians and musicians are two different entities. It is isn't appropriate for a politician to whine about his love life to the public like most musicians do either.

    Hell, I would be inviting metal bands, including Body Count so they could perform Cop Killer at the White House. That would be minor with the satanic death metal bands playing though.
