Dolphins-dissing President Obama chats Pitbull, Medicare with 'Pimp with the Limp' DJ Laz

President Obama continues reaching out to non-traditional media to spread the campaign word, appearing in a pre-recorded interview that aired this morning on 106.7 FM with DJ Laz AKA “the pimp with the limp,” who tweeted that he was getting “REAL Answers from @BarackObama.”

Laz even got false ones.

For instance, Obama said that repealing Obamacare, which cut Medicare and helped extend the life of the program by eight years,  would cause the program to go “bankrupt by 2016.”

That’s not really true. If the cuts were repealed, a main hospital trust fund for Medicare would start to take in less than it pays out. But that’s not bankruptcy.

On the whole, Obama stayed on message, dropped a few pop culture references and reached an audience that seldom pays close attention to politics. He also made time to mock the Dolphins bad record. It's an effective outreach technique, but you have to wonder about the president's criticisms of the mainstream press when he picks these venues. Too bad Laz didn't ask the president about his big hit, "if you ain't got your clothes off get your ass off the stage." Would love to hear POTUS rap to that.

The intro:

Obama: DJ Laz.

Laz: O-Bama!

Obama: “What’s going on, man?”

Laz: “How are you, sir?”

Obama: “Blessed and highly favored.”

Laz: It is an honor and pleasure to have the president of the United States. I’m humbled

Obama: “I’m the one who should be humbled. You’re big time. You’ve got Pitbull and Flo Rida and all these guys just beating a path to your door. And so I’m hoping I can get a little of that magic from you in this interview.”

Laz: I’m wearing a Miami Dolphins jersey

Obama: “You’ve got to start with that Dolphins thing. Did you see that HBO special Hard Knocks. That’s a pretty good show. As I recall, you guys didn’t win any… in the preseason”

Laz: Now I’m getting ragged on by the president of the United States

Obama: “I’m just saying you brought it up. My Bears – I’m feeling pretty good about them.”

The rest was standard campaign fare. Click and listen.

 

****update: The campaign tells us the interview was pre-recorded two days ago. The radio station ran the interview this morning, 9/11, and the original post noted the absence of a Sept. 11 reference by the president as a result.

Read a real banned 9/11 book, “America Deceived II” by a real outlaw author.

He can kiss my Dolphin-loving asstibula. I was an independent. If he hadn't already lost my vote, this would be it.

jeff

A disgrace of a man. Never mind POTUS.

Charles

I normally don't comment but this time I have to.

President Obama obviously has forgotten the job he was elected , to meet with Israel's prime minister (still considered an ally but the way things are going maybe soon wont be) he has no time in his schedule according to the White House , but of course we will make time for DJ pimp with the limp !

What the hell is going on !

jeff

When are you obama drones gonna figure out that this guy could care less about you. When are you going to wake up that he hates this country or do you all also hate this country? Lay down your pride and arrogance for one election.

Trip

Priorities.

Paul

Holy Sh*t, this is one low-class president, or else he must really hate America.

The real story about Obama and the election is being buried. Do you know why Sarah Palin's bus tour was really canceled last year? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin isn't in this race because too many people now know the truth. She was added to the McCain ticket with NO intention of winning..

Search PalinsDirtyLittleSecret for the BIGGEST cover up in world history before it disappears forever.

Obama has no interest in life except what will get him elected. He has seriously dumbed down the political acumen of the United States. My independent vote is going to Romney!!!

Robert

This president and vice president have taken the presidency and vice presidency to a new low. Bear-hugs, snuggling up to biker chicks, talking lingo with hip hoppers, etc. Obama's spent more time on the golf course than he has in meetings discussing the cruddy economy. They've spent more time on the campaign trail than all other presidents combined. They go after a Navy Seal for telling the story about the OBL raid yet it was okay for them to release the details to a Hollywood producer so they could make a movie that attempts to make Obama look good. This guy is an embarassment and he needs to resign if he can't do the job he promised and was elected to do.

Jack Simpson

Its an impersonator. Its not OBAMA

Gary

America is going to obliterate this con man on 11/6/12. No amount of voter fraud can save him. Pariah. He will be a pariah.

B.O. smells

When did you last meet with your jobs council?... 3 months ago...? Neat. Don't leave the pimp waiting though...

Jimwolfson

Ghetto trash. No wonder he can't even understand, much less work to solve, actual real-world problems.

lauraJ1967

This President really makes me sick! "Low-class" doesn't even begin to describe Barry...I can't wait to vote this joke out of office!!!

D

Why would he care about 911?

"All this, for a Flag?"

Michelle Obama, speaking to her Puke Husband, at last year's Memorial.

dmw

And people wonder why the rest of say he's not a leader, not Presidential. What a dope.

Kelly

4 more for Obama! Great guy awesome POTUS!

JenHamilton

This from the President of the United States on the anniversary of 9/11? Honestly! New lows constantly set.

Mr. Spradley

He actually said "Blessed and Highly Favored" not "Less than Highly favored as the article states. It's a common Christian response to the question "How are you?"

--- Indeed. Fixed.
MC

Job

No Mention of out 3000 dead citizens and our thousands of troops killed to defend this country! WHAT A PATHETIC MAN! VOTE HIM OUT!!!!!!!!!! I AM JEWISH>>>>WHERE ARE MY PEOPLE???????? Dont vote for him he will destroy us all!!!!!!

twyger

100 million working age American's without a job... and the Preezy has time to take a shot at the Dolphins on 'Pimp with the Limp'???????

This is one guy I won't begrudge the tax dollars after he's forcibly retired. Definitely willing to pay hiM whatever it takes to get the heck away from making decisions about anything that affects anyone other than his immediate family.

In this one instance... the politicians golden parachute - is cheap at twice the price. Get to Hawaii you incompetent boob!!

TheMadKing

The reporter reports the fact that the President didn't discuss 9/11, as the interview was pre-recorded two days ago. But if the Obama staff knew it would be aired today, 9/11, why no mention of it? May seem a harsh, unfair and unjust criticism of the President on its face. I agree. Welcome to the Bush treatment :)

MadCharles

We don't need four more years of the flu.
Spread the word..

Robert

If he wants to hang out with celebrities and talk pop-culture with musicians and DJs why doesn't he just get a gig with Entertainment Tonight and let a real leader do his job. Heck, even Biden would be better than this fool.

DeanH

he shall now be referred to as President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho

JS

The man-child is at it again. NBA picks, rap stars, Hollywood people, and the worst example of a man in the Whitehouse our nation has ever seen. This man is an immature idiot. GROW UP!

Repubtallygirl

He hasn't held a Cabinet Meeting nor a Jobs Council Meeting since January of this year. Yesterday the news broke that he rarely attends his daily intelligence briefings.
But he has time for this?

Jimmy Carter is laughing right now, he no longer has the title of Worst President ever.

Carl

He doesnt attend regular security briefings....Im sure Putin and China do,,,,,FOLKS WAKE UP ! HEs gonna get us attacked by surprise AGAIN! The enemy is salivating at taking us out, it CAN be done in less that an hour WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tiffany

Has he forgotten that he is the President and needs to get his ass back to work and try to fix this country. I guess he is covering up his incompetency by talking on hip hop radio! What a waste. November 6th cannot come fast enough!

John

Two of the masterminds of the WTC 1993 attack, and 2001 attack were Egyptian. I just read that Obama is negotiating for Egypt to buy submarines from Germany for Egypt, with a 1 billion in aid. I don't know maybe it's crazy but giving Egyptians the mortal enemies of Israel is a bad idea.

Mr. Reason

It isn't his fault, he doesn't speak about the attack on 9/11 because it just doesn't concern him. I'm sure he only gave it a passing thought at most.

Ann Gitzinger

So glad he has the time to talk trash...guess the possible credit downgrade, the 16T debt, the enormous number of people sucking off the government teat aren't too pressing in his mind! Not the person I want in the WH again!

teerover

The man is a danger to this republic. He got big time to chat it up with "the pimp with the limp
' but no time for our ally from Isreal. Turned him down flat today, no time for him later this month. What a disgrace of a president...time for him to go....

Dianne Chastain

He does not live in the real world..staff taking care of his biracial butt in the People's House..taxpayers funding everything and he doesn't give a rats..the skillet head comes out in all of them eventually...

maryl

He has time to do this crap but not meet with Netanyahu?

HE IS A FAILURE ON ALL LEVELS!

jimmmy

No intelligent life here. Just a bunch of hard righties that only know how to spew hatred. Romney won't help this country. Believe that!

BarrysHypocrisy

Typical Obama: all flash, no substance.

maryl

"Obama: “I’m the one who should be humbled. You’re big time. You’ve got Pitbull and Flo Rida and all these guys just beating a path to your door. And so I’m hoping I can get a little of that magic from you in this interview.”

This must be a joke-!

Crewmax42

Pimp with limp what?

Peru

obama loves the perks but has zero interest in the work. what a schmo.

Dave

You don't need any more "ghetto magic" than you brought with you Obummer. Now BACK to Chicago or Indonesia or Kenya, no matter, but get OUT of the USA.

Sid Branson

I've often wondered how we'll describe Obama to our great grands, but I think out society is no longer about truth and honor...so it won't matter.

D

It's been four year non stop party for Obama and company

Time for it to be over in November

Lisa

Still can't believe there are actual Americans that will vote for this clown..if he wins again the American dream is now officially a nightmare.

Plo

No effin way is Romney and his magical underwear along with Speedy Lyin' Ryan (who runs a marathon under 3 hours, yeah right, only him and the Olympians) going to win this election. These guys suck so bad that the only message the Grand Old Tea Party can muster is "At least they ain't Obama!" Well guess what, to any thinking sentient being with an IQ higher than 10, it's obvious that Obama is now beginning his surge in the polls. Americans, apparently other then fluoridated water drinking idiots down in Florida, are not supportive of any more "trickle down economics" because all we get is peed on, and not supportive of any more Americans dying for Israel, or spending any more money we don't have on more wars.

Please all you ignorant haters, promise you'll leave America after Obama is re-elected. FORWARD!

Steve PA

Regardless of when it was recorded, nonsense like this is not becoming of a US President. He has no business being on a show like this with a pimp reference. Again, it shows what the guy's mindset is, and it's not good, certainly not good for America. Idiots like this DJ are part of America's problem, not part of the solution.

Busted! Axelrod IS Snidley Whiplash. Separated at birth from his twin Roseanne Barr, and banned from cartoon television forever, he is currently enjoying a career makeover as, a democratic strategist. According to Whiplash...I mean Axelrod: "This job has allowed me to fully utilize my talents in a way that Rocky and Bullwinkle would never allowed"

Mrbp

Meanwhile, his buddys are attacking our embassy in egypt. Hopefully our military will kill as many of these animals as they can. This traitor in the whitehouse should be behind bars. Hopefully the idiot dems who want to vote for him are declining in numbers. I cannot think of anyone in their right mind voting for this scum-bag.

Andy

@Nick11766--Webster Tarpley's stuff on 9/11 is also highly revelatory. False flags are not unprecedented, and there was a clear motive here. The families of the victims deserve to know the truth.

Obama's a clown. He's a puppet who watches ESPN all day at his office on the second floor of the White House. His neo-liberal staff largely tends to policy. Bob Woodward's new book on the debt ceiling negotiations reveal a president who's shockingly passive and out of the loop.
