Is This What Americans Want? Really?

Posted by ALmod on September 17, 2009

It was the acceptance speech hijack heard around the world– or at least the part of the world that watches the VMAs.  Taylor Swift won an award and started thanking everyone when Kanye West snatched her mic away and declared that Beyonce Knowles should have won.  (I might add that I gained a ton of respect for Knowles as a result of her actions upon winning an award herself.)

Everyone has been talking about it all week.  It was rude.  It was inappropriate.  And of course, President Obama was asked about it.  Here’s what he said:

That also sparked this rather funny video:

Now, I have to admit…  It’s hard to not agree with the president on that one, but then I also noticed his poll numbers for this week.  RCP shows an average of +9.5 points in the polls.  CNN and Bloomberg show gains of 18 and 19 points, respectively.  Seriously?!  That’s what it takes to get high poll numbers?!

I guess instead of having him do anything really important, like getting us out of a recession or fixing health care, we should just have him do the Cheers and Jeers section for TV Guide.
