obama sends condolences to heavy d funeral

This is lovely.

Heavy D's funeral took place today in Mount Vernon, NY, and President Barack Obama took the time to send his condolences in the following letter, which was read by Rev. Al Sharpton at the service:

"We extend our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time. He will be remembered for his infectious optimism and many contributions to American music. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers."

Thanks for the kind words, Obama! We're sure Heavy D's family and loved ones appreciate it.

Rest well, Heavy.

    "Lovely"…..are you kidding me. Pleeze

    But not a word about the riots going on here….he's too busy globe trotting

    RIP Mr D.

    With that being said, doesn't our President have bigger issues to deal with? He seems way too wrapped up in the celebrity world for my comfort.

    OBAMA IS SUCH A TOOL. IF HEAVY D WAS A WHITE RAPPER HE WOULDNT BE WASTING TAX PAYERS MONEY BY MAKING THIS LAME ANNOUNCEMENT. DOESNT HE HAVE MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES TO DEAL WITH THAN JUST HAS-BEEN BLACK ARTIST ISSUES??? I HIGHLY DOUBT CLINTON OR EVEN BUSH WOULD EVEN SPEND AN IOTA OF TIME ON THIS DUDE. HEAVY D NEEDED TO LOSE AT LEAST 100-150 LBS. THAT'S WHAT KILLED HIM. POINT BLANK, PERIOD.

    How about a letter of condolence
    to the family of Brian Terry, the border patrol guard, shot a killed with the weapons that Obama & Holder let get into the hands of Mexican drug bandits ????????????

    You keep sucking up to Rev AL , and his followers,because come next Nov, they will be all you have

    Re: MR Pete – I couldn't have said it better. He doesn't say a word about a Border Patrol who is gunned down, but he is sending condolences to a rapper? This moron is so out of touch with America. There are riots in the streets by the liberal loons, people are losing their homes, Americans need jobs, people are going to bed hungry and he is jetting around the world with that Amazon wife of his and sending condolences to rappers.

    Start packing your bags you big loser! You will be unemployed soon! Just not soon enough for the majority of us!

    Re: gregoryschmo – I'm looking at a much bigger picture. I want a real President, not some fan girl.

    Re: matusadona – Yes he can.. On his own time. Rest assure America will not make the same mistake twice. Don't worry though! He'll have plenty of time to do what he does best. NOTHING. =-)
