Obama Shouts Out Young Jeezy: Five Tracks the President Should Cover for His 2012 Campaign
Our president is a real cool dude. Whatever you think of his policies, the guy can make a joke. And he's got great taste in music.
At the White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Obama addressed the secret second-term agenda that's got the Republicans so terrified. He said, "My first term, I sang Al Green. In my second term, I'm going with Young Jeezy."
Now we know Obama's just making a joke. (Or is he?) But we really wish that America was ready for presidential gangsta swag. So in the spirit of a more turnt-up U.S.A., here are five Jeezy tracks that we think the Prez should cover for his 2012 reelection campaign.
"And Then What"
This song goes hard. And it's the perfect opportunity for Obama to list his achievements in office thus far. We imagine something like, "First, I made healthcare free/And then what!/Then I put gays in the military/And then what!/Killed Osama and pulled out the troops/Tell me, Romney ... What is you gonna do?" But we're not rappers or anything.

President Obama has been through a lot. There are still people who don't think he's a real American and many who doubt his allegiance to upholding our freedoms. Some people think he has some secret Muslim terrorist background. This song would be a great way for Obama to stick it to the haters and tell them how he came up in the streets of Chicago as a community organizer.Next Page
