  1. That was a great poem and video. He was so cute in his comments about his experience in the White House. Thanks for posting this. Much better than watching MTP, or the other useless morning talk shows.

  2. Nothing but the best for our president. Common has never disappointed us. Love him.

  3. Amen.

    I never heard of Common although I saw the movie “Just Wright”. I’ll have to watch it again. The poem was beautiful. Last week Faux noise tried to make a faux issue out of him going to the WH with their normal lies and faux indignities. Jon Stewart blasted faux noise and he and bill-o the clown are debating about Common. I don’t plan to watch it because I don’t watch their shows but will I am sure hear about it on the internet.

  4. A lovely and talented young man who appreciates the honor that he was given. So glad the Obamas go their own way and keep the promises they make. They have more than kept their promise to make the White House truly the people’s house.

  5. Oh I really enjoyed that.. what a sweety he is, he thanked our President and First Lady, he referred to them so respectfully (something the media ought to give a try to).. it’s the first time I’ve heard his entire poem and it was so touching and beautiful.. and when he stopped to shake hands and autograph for the the police he was showing true grace, much like POTUS has been shown doing. Thank YOU Common for sharing your talent with us all.

  6. Amen, bwd,common humanity. This race baiting blitz by FOX just may provide a little juice for the young folks to get involved-again.

  7. Common is such a humble and lovely human being.

    I also remembered him at the Christmas tree lighting ceremony where he was the host.

    What I’ve come to realize is that once you are on the side of God there will always be those who try to tear you down.

    Common and by extension the President knows this.

    But God and those on the side of good always wins in the end.

  8. They have more than kept their promise to make the White House truly the people’s hous

    Show you right, Yes, they have. They are truly Great Host and Hostess🙂

  9. I love Common. He is one of the Hip-Hop artist that truelly carry a message in his music. His poems are definately heartfelt and insprirational.

    ………….and the Rethuglican line up for Sunday morning shows………): The MSM is going to keep on disgusting us until NO one is watching their DIATRIBE!! Obama/Biden 2012!!

  10. I HAD NEVER SEEN ‘COMMON’ BEFORE UNTIL HE CAME TO THE WHITE HOUSE…I LOVED HIS POEM…THE JUDGEMENTAL ONES WITH THE POLITICAL AGENDAS TRY TO FIND FAULT WITH THE OBAMAS WHEREVER THEY CAN AND OF COURSE ‘FIXED NEWS’ IS OFTEN AN INSTIGATOR! I CONSIDER THE SOURCES…FRANKLY THEY ALL NEED TO CATCH UP WITH A GOOD LOOK IN THEIR OWN MIRROR!

  11. Good news: despite big oil calling there friends the republicans, to tell them to have a permanent base in Iraq. Well, the Iraqi parliament just released a statement saying iraqi

    forces are doing so well that we will not need American forces beyond 2011! This is good news for John McCain.

  12. BWD, thank you for this great place and all the people here. I have been so busy these last few days I have only been able to read and not comment. I am so thankful for all of you who comment. Have a good night.

  13. we need a new thread. where is everybody?

    Ignore Paul Krugman today.
