Eminem Speaks Out On Bush...

Sat Oct 23, 2004 5:34 am

EMINEM: 'BUSH LIKE A DOG CHASING ITS TAIL'
Fri Oct 22 2004 13:45:08 ET

Rapper Eminem bodyslams President Bush in the upcoming edition of ROLLING STONE, publishing sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

President Bush is "like dog chasing its tail," the Hollywood-bound Eminem tells the magazine, set to street during the first week of November.

RS: You get deep into your feelings about President Bush and Iraq on “Mosh.” Do you think the Iraq War was a mistake?

E: He’s been painted to be this hero and he’s got our troops over there dying for no reason. I haven’t heard an explanation yet that I can understand. Explain to us why we have troops over there dying.

RS: There is no good answer.

E: I think he started a mess. America is the best country there is, the best country to live in. But he’s f**kin’ that up and could run our country into the ground. He jumped the gun, and he f**ked up so bad he doesn’t know what to do right now. He’s in a tailspin, running around like a dog chasing its tail. And we got young people over there dyin’, kids in their teens, early twenties that should have futures ahead of them. And for what? It seems like a Vietnam 2. Bin Laden attacked us and we attacked Saddam. We ain’t heard from Saddam for ten years, but we go attack Saddam. Explain why that is. Give us some answers.

RS: Are you voting?

E: This is the first year I’ve registered to vote. And I’m gonna vote. Bush is definitely not my homie, but I’m still undecided. Kerry has been known to say some things that’s caught my attention, made a few statements I’ve liked, but I don’t know. Whatever my decision is, I would like to see Bush out of office. I don’t wanna see my little brother get drafted. He just turned eighteen. I don’t want to see him lose his life. People think their votes don’t count, but people need to get out and vote. Every motherf**kin’ vote counts.

I guess Jessica Simpson will be out flashing her toothy smile and her gazoongas for Bush as a counter attack.

"Bush is definitely not my homie.."

There's all the evidence of credibility you need!

I wish they'd stop letting these idiots in entertainment voice their opinions so much. They mean nothing and are often less informed than even the average citizen.

Whoa, whoa, easy there M&M, let me get you caught up on current events: the draft bill has been defeated, so unless your brother pisses you off and enlists, you don't have nothing to worry about...

No, but a man who once claimed that Ex helped him be creative and productive does not have as much credibility in matters of world affairs or economics.

Eminem has some excellent talents in the music field, but he was posing questions to an audience who was not going to disagree with him.

Here are some Christian rockers in short skirts singing really bad Christian rock songs for Bush.

So if anyone uses "homie" then they have no credibility? There is a thing called slang and colloquialisms you know.

Why don't you go for an interview for any job that pays more than $6.00 an hour and use the word "homie?" Tell me whether or not you get the job. It has nothing to do with culture, it's a lack of education (a resounding theme in celebrity's endorsements of Kerry).

Well obviously not. That would be beyond stupid to do. The thing is that these people are entertainers and the people that read the Rolling Stone tend to be younger people which use those colloquialisms, so it isn't that big of a deal that he expresses himself in that way. Of course if he was being interviewed by someone like Peter Jennings and talked like that, then it is lacking credibility.

Who said this was a job interview?

Whether you like him or not (I personally am not a fan), he is a big name and certain people out there will listen to him and identify with him.

The man doesn't need to go on an interview.
The last time I checked he sold millions of albums.

He's not trying to be Adam Smith (like the rest of you with your lousy degrees from second rate schools). He is just airing his opinions which he (like you) is entitled to.

Lets examine some other left hollyweed celeb comments:

Janeane Garofalo:
"When I see the American flag, I go, 'Oh my God, you're insulting me.' That you can have a gay parade on Christopher Street in New York, with naked men and women on a float cheering, 'We're here, we're queer!' -- that's what makes my heart swell. Not the flag, but a gay naked man or woman burning the flag. I get choked up with pride."

~Jessica Lange:
It makes me feel ashamed to come from the United States. It is humiliating."
“It is an embarrassing time to be an American. It really is. It's humiliating.”

~Michael Moore:
They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet ... in thrall to conniving, thieving, smug pricks,” he replied. “We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don’t know about anything that’s happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing.”
and speaking about the passengers of flight 93....
“the passengers were scaredy-cats because they were mostly white. If the passengers had included black men, he claimed, those killers, with their puny bodies and unimpressive small knives, would have been crushed by the dudes."

~Harry Belafonte
"There's an old saying, in the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him.

"Colin Powell's committed to come into the house of the master. When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture."

~Danny Glover
"The death penalty is inhumane...whether that person is in a [jail] or it’s bin Laden."

~Dustin Hoffman
"For me as an American, the most painful aspect of this is that I believe that administration has taken the events of 9/11 and has manipulated the grief of the country and I think that's reprehensible."


~Johnny Depp
"America is dumb, it's like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive."

"My daughter is four, my boy is one. I'd like them to see America as a toy, a broken toy. Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling and then get out."

~Madonna
"If I were President, Howard Stern would get kicked out of the country -- and Roman Polanski would be allowed back in!"

So how does "President Madonna" justify ejecting Citizen Stern for exercising his constitutional right to free speech -- but welcoming a foreigner who was 44 when convicted of raping a 13-year-old American child he plied with drugs and booze? She says it's

"because artists are allowed to make mistakes and have unconventional ideas . . . !"

~Oliver Stone
"Bin Laden was completely protected by the oil companies in this country who told [President] Bush not to go after him because it would piss off the Saudis."

"We should look to (Castro) as one of the Earth's wisest people, one of the people we should consult."

even in the event you meant "charlatan", but too careless to spell it correctly; it's Charlton

Not quite sure from whence you derive that drivel.

I for one think the guy's slowly losing what little mind he ever might've had, and I'm not alone among (gun totin') Republicans in thinking thus.

From the bazillions the NRA pays the geezer to babble.
In any case, I've never once seen the usual gaggle of right wing cons who berate Janeane "Do I even have a career?" Garofalo for airing her views criticize "Charlton" Heston for being the mouthpiece of the Second Amendment.

I think you really need to examine that statement and realize that it is not a serious one. Garofalo is known to speak sarcastically and this definitely sounds like it.

I care about as much about what Charlton Heston says, as I do what Michael Moore says. As far as celebrities and artists spouting off about their beliefs, if you chose someone who may or may not have graduated high school as your source of info. I pity you.

We don't.
But then some people obviously do because they believe that if a stupid celebrity criticizes Bush suddenly the First Amendment doesn't apply to them, but if a stupid celebrity endorses him, then they are suddenly the Oracle of Delphi.
