What do you think

about the Blackeyed Peas adding a message to Obama to their song during half time?
"In America we need to get things straight / Obama, let's get these kids educated / Create jobs so the country stays stimulated," he sang.

about Bill O'Reillys Obama interview during pregame?

Can't we just have fun without bringing politics into everything?

  • Politics and fun just do not belong in the same sentence.

  • I couldn't get past the horrible singing and audio, so I didn't hear the message to Obama. I am sure it's resonating with him (just kidding). I like to listen to entertainment, but when it has political messages sprinkled throughout I tend to turn away from it. I don't mind politics, just not when I am expecting entertainment.

    I didn't watch the interview either. I was busy fixing toilets.  Maybe I should have saved that job for the halftime show?  IDK.

  • I really don't care one way or the other.

    As for the O'Reilly interview with President Obama, it's tradition that someone from the network that plays the Superbowl to interview the President. It's been happening as long as I can remember. If people don't like it they don't have to watch it.

  • I'm sure Obama really gives a crap what the black eyed peas say.

  • I know I'm not the only one in the country who didn't watch the Super Bowl (although it sometimes feels that way--but my girls and I watched the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet last night). I've never watched football games, I don't have a favorite team, I just couldn't care less about any of it. I'm always confused by the level of anticipation and excitement that surrounds a bunch of men chasing a pig-skin around a giant field, sacking each other. Since I don't care about the game, I have no interest in pre-game, half-time or post-game related things. It's all just hype to me. What I've heard of the Black-Eyed Peas song doesn't seem all that offensive to me, and I don't hate Obama. Maybe there's the difference. It's just a message to a president that could be delivered to any president. No big deal.

  • js..we were going to watch the puppy bowl but we went out instead!  : )  My daughter is an animal lover

    The BEP's are Obama fans and they were reiterating Obama's state of the Union message about EDUCATING our kids to we can get them jobs,,,
