Kanye West Has Two Presidents Pissed At Him…George Bush Says He’s Disgusted at Him

Kanye West has pissed off two presidents-Who's next?

Ya gotta love Kanye West. The man is constantly finding ways to make noise and stay in the spotlight. If he’s not bum rushing the stage to spark drama with pop singer Taylor Swift, he’s releasing 30 minute cryptic movies (Runaway) that have no real meaning, but has everyone talking like it does. Sometimes we absolutely love him. Other times he makes us cringe, but that’s Kanye.

One person who is absolutely not feeling Kanye is former president George Bush. In his recently released memoirs ‘Decision Points‘ Bush notes that he took issue with Kanye West asserting he didn’t care about Black people during the Hurricane Katrina relief telethon.

He said he was deeply disgusted  and that it was the lowest moment of his Presidency. He said its one thing to have someone disagree with his policies, it’s another thing to call him a racist.  Teasers for Bush’s remarks about Kanye have been running in promos for his upcoming appearance on the Today Show where host Matt Lauer will air their conversation.

When I first saw an obviously angered Bush make his remarks the first thing that went through my mind was Kanye West did a damn good job and I need to give him props next time I see him.  I also noted that President Bush looked like he really wanted to have a fair one with the upstart rapper. I thought about it some more and concluded that Bush may have name dropped Kanye to get some publicity for his book. We saw this with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wife calling Anita Hill demanding an apology after 20 years. Certainly Kanye dissing George Bush can’t be his lowest moment. Many in higher places have said and done worse.

George Bush looked like he was ready to knock Kanye out when describing his reaction to the rapper's remarks about him hating Black people

Kanye dissing Bush was his lowest moment over 1-Getting his facts wrong about the Iraq War? 2-Leaving office with a 20% approval rating? 3-Having shoes thrown at him? 4-Having entire books released about his gaffes and inability to pronounce words? Really? C’mon son. Bush can’t be serious.

I know I’ve said worse over the airwaves about the former President especially when he routinely putting Black men to death as Governor of Texas. I’ll never forget his callousness when Shaka Sankofa was put to death  Hell I think President Barack ‘Bi-partisan’ Obama has said worse when he rightfully laid blame at Bush’s feet for the tanked economy.

But in any case,  Kanye is in his crosshairs. he took issue with being called a racist. I guess Bush was looking at the fact that he gave more money and resources to Africa than any other President. Ok I’ll give him that..But his lack of actions during Katrina cancelled that out. Also, our country the good ole United States needs to be given a lot more back to the mother land.

Memo to George Bush: The Truth Hurts

Memo to Kanye West: Get your knuckle game up, that Bush boy looks like a scrapper.

With that being said, Kanye may also have to watch his step around President Obama who after viewing Kanye interrupting Taylor Swift, remarked to news reporter Terry Moran of CNBC in an ‘off the record’ remark that Kanye West was a jackass.  Not sure if President Obama ever apologized the way he did when he called the Cambridge police ‘stupid’ for arresting his friend Skip Gates.  In any case Kanye has done what no rap artist has ever done, got two Presidents pissed off enough to talk about him. I wonder if he’ll do a song about it or if he’ll step up his presidential piss you off game and say something to anger Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter or Bush Sr

Kanye did respond to Bush’s remarks..During an interview on Houston’s The Box radio station.. He said the following;

“With him, it was a lack of compassion with him not rushing, him not taking the time to rush down to New Orleans. With me, it was a lack of compassion of cutting someone off in their moment. But nonetheless, I think we’re all quick to pull a race card in America, and now I’m more open, [due to] the poetic justice that I feel to have went through the same thing that he went. And I really more connect with him just on a humanitarian level because that next morning, the next morning when he felt that, I felt that same thing too [with the Taylor Swift incident].”

“I do think I changed a lot. I do think that I’m more compassionate, I’m more sensitive to people’s emotions. I’m just understanding that it’s not about me, it’s not about just what my opinion is all the time — especially when it’s someone else’s show,

    Great marketing strategy. To reach the most ignorant masses (I’m talking ALL cultures), you can’t go around throwing out names like Pelosi, Reid, Franks…doesn’t resonate.

    PS: Let’s have a toast for Bush!

  2. I agree with Kayne though, people are far to quick to pull the race card out in America.

    Wow. I agree with Kayne. never thought I’d say that.

    If it was black people in the Hamptons or Wall Street that had a crisis you sure as hell know the government would be on top of it and if you think all those poor people in NO were white that would have changed anything than you’re living in a very nice fantasy world.

  3. Kanye was right, Bush is a racist. That’s the ugly truth! There was no need for him to elaborate on his past remark of Bush. Next, here’s the meaning of Kanye West’s video “Runaway” broken down by James Will Power –>

    Kanye West’s Runaway Video Explained
    Runaway Music Video Explained by James Will Power

    NOTE: I’d suggest watching the video first. Maybe you’ll get it, but if not – here’s the explanation. I’m probably about 100% right.

    The man running away at the beginning is not Kanye West – it’s YOU & ME! The video is essentially saying that one must run away from conventions and a conventional understanding of religion, philosophy, science, art, music etc. to find GOD, the true Self, and true Creativity. With time, anything that was innovative becomes linear, dull, and two dimensional.

    At the beginning, Nikki Minaj is talking about religions (all of them), which become corrupt in their ability to show us (the Children of GOD watching this story) the way to GOD over time. We accept these corruptions, but GOD is the CREATIVE, INSPIRATIONAL FORCE. GOD is both spiritual and sexual. What we see as sexual on the material plane of creation, we should be able to reproduce with Spirit in the form of Creations like art, technology, culture, relationships etc. We accept that which is, because we are disconnected from the true Spirit of Divine.

    In the first scene, Kanye is the black man, dressed in all black, in the black car – all black everything. For someone to say that they are “all black everything” is to say they are as raw and real as it gets. Even without the creative spark, that person is a natural – the genuine article, as oil, coal, the richest soil, even the Universe are black. Just as in the triple darkness of the womb life is created, Kanye is to be seen as the perfect vessel through which life can be created

    The spark of Life comes from the CREATOR. The descending Phoenix, like the sperm, is the spark of True Life (the good idea) that breaks the seal of the egg (the car). Kanye becomes impregnated or accepts this new life, which really becomes a part of his consciousness (a beautiful new idea, probably the part in his life when he accepted the idea of becoming a rapper or more than just a producer). The car crash represents that point in his life. For the video, the idea takes the form of a beautiful woman (the most beautiful reality in creation).

    The idea must be nurtured in a strange, new world (the Phoenix in the garden). Then, the idea is put to music. The Phoenix (or idea) is sexual in nature, because it feels good. Sexual doesn’t mean freaky. It means that “it vibrates with the rhythm of nature.” The wings on the Phoenix let us know she is of a higher nature, not a lower vibration. It is a pure idea.

    Soon, the Phoenix (idea) is shown all of the other ideas (Lights) in this strange, new world that she must interact with. This is what the light show symbolizes. The red represents the grounding of the Phoenix (or idea) in the root chakra. It becomes rooted or stable. It takes its place among the stars – Michael being a chief angel among the stars, both on the material and metaphysical planes id heralded as a representative of the stars.

    In the scene with the Phoenix and the cup, more conventional aspects are added in making the idea ready to present to the public.

    In the next scene at the dinner table, the Phoenix is brought before family and friends who point out the obvious – that the idea is different.

    Notice – the family is a black family wearing white. Black absorbs and white reflects. So, while the family and friends should be the first to embrace (absorb) the new idea, they reflect it because they are wearing the false covering of the world and its conventions. When the music starts playing, the dancers (the public) unlike his family and friends rush to the hear it. They are white (unalike) wearing black. So, while they are not like the Creative One, they absorb the idea because it brings them to life (the dry bones in the valley).

    The green back-drop represents the heart chakra, because non-creative people use creativity (music and art) as a means of opening the heart and learning about beauty, civilization, and culture. Hence, their actions take on a level of beauty and sophistication (a la the swan dancing at the end).

    When the music stops, they go away because it was the heart of this creative being that brought them to life. It is not in their nature to be fully alive or fully creative beings.

    The Phoenix itself even claps at the way such a beautiful idea is being expressed through this beautiful vessel (Kanye).

    At the table, the family serves up dead ideas (conventional bull-sh*t) as an offering to accompany this GOD-given Creativity. This is an affront to the Spirit, which screams bloody murder. In the Bible, Abel gave a Creative offering from GOD and Cain gives an offering of some earthly, material thing. It’s like real vs. fake rappers. The fake is nauseating to the real.

    In the next scene, Kanye wants to keep this explosive, creative energy found in the Phoenix, because it is the only thing that is a match for the power of God within. It is the Yang to his Yin. It is the diamond in his gold band. But this force is the property of the CREATOR and will always return to HIM. POWER descends only to return to the SOURCE. True POWER is GOD’s Creative Force – nothing else.

    Next, the Phoenix references what she hates about this world. Clipping the wings off the Phoenix means – taking the Creative Power out of the idea or the person with the idea. What you’re left with is no longer alive. “I like that idea, but why don’t you play it safe and change this part?” That which turns to stone or is written in stone does not allow for any new creative energy to enter into it. Lot’s wife became a pillar of salt – unable to embrace a new life outside of Sodom, the rest-haven she loved. Most people are scare to leave their comfort zone or to embrace anything new.

    This brings us to the end of the video. To chase the only true POWER, GOD’s Inspiration, is to run away from conventions. True religion is the search for that Creative Spark.

    Without GOD’s Inspiration, we are LOST IN THE WORLD (and a very dull world at that). Not having it, we seek to leave this place to go to where the POWER is – with HIM.

    In a sense, we must die out of our pre-conceptions and conventions to become vessels worthy of being used by GOD. Then, ultimately we must be willing to let POWER go. A vessel must be empty to be re-filled again and again and again.

    At the end of the cycle, Kanye West is just like you and me, because the Spirit doesn’t stay in any one vessel forever. So, his message is if this world were full of more of a Creative Spirits, the world would be a more heavenly place.

    In order to create heaven on Earth, we have to have the faith to run away from conventions and let power (or our perception of what it is) go.

    Sorry! The video may not be a satanic, illuminati-sponsored attempt to confuse you. We need to cut that out anyway. Everything is not demonic just because it’s not some two-dimensional, linear script that fits the Cyclops conventions of your church-group or organization.

  4. Sounds like coded langauge if were comparing Kanye’s comments with all the other stuff from 2001-2008.

  5. RobThomas says:

    Kanye is a jackass, and Obama shouldn’t apologize for saying it. Then again, Obama shouldn’t have apologized for calling the cops that harassed Professor Gates stupid, either. In fact, stupid doesn’t nearly go far enough to describe what those cops did. He should have called them nazis.

    Regarding Taylar Swift….I only know who she is now because of Kanye’s MTV Awards stunt. And, I actually think she’s talented, although she’s not even near Beyonce’s level. So, her handlers should be thanking Kanye. Only brought her exposure. Then again, it could all be set up that way anyway. It’s not like Kanye West is independent of the big record companies, who all work together.

  6. RobThomas says:

    Oh, regarding Bush and Kanye….is Bush more upset at Kanye calling him a racist than he is at the fact that so many people died and had their lives ruined due to his inaction in the days following the Hurricane? Whether he’s just saying this to sell a book or not, the fact that he could even put Kanye’s criticism of him in the same context as the worst natural disaster in American history and the subsequently worst response to a national disaster in American history reveals what we all already know about him.

  7. Whether Bush is doing this for publicity, it’s bullshit.

    People, in general, lost their lives due to his inactivity and a late response. That Bush was your biggest mistake, in my opinion.

    As for Kanye…. he’s an hip-hop artist. I’m glad he did what he did. I was thinking that Bush ain’t care for Black folk looong before ‘Ye went on his rant. It raised awareness around Bush’s presidency AND had people talking. Socially inept hip-hop does exist whether it’s in the lyrics or that artist’s moves.

  8. Your go back support will be focused on their particular buyers.
