It was just a few years ago when President Obama first took office and Wyclef Jean proclaimed “I’m like an Obama groupie from the very beginning“.
However, a few years later, an economy still in shambles, debt crisis and much more does Wyclef feel different now? According to sources, his views have changed slightly, he now state’s “I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin“. Could this really be true?
Via Huffington Post:
While at Fashion Week on Wednesday in NYC, the former Fugees star informed the crowd he’s quite a fan of the former half-term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.
“I have to tell you this: I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin,” he told the audience (via WWD). “Cause she’s rad. She’s shrewd. She’s cool. Because at the end of the day, I’m for the people, because this is the United States of America… this is what America’s really about. Anyone should have the right to say, ‘Look I can do the job and this is what qualifies me to do the job.’…. Now my wife probably will debate and disagree with me.”
Jean continued, saying that he wasn’t necessarily saying that she could be president, but was a fan nonetheless.
Whew! I was getting ready to light his azz up! LOL To be honest I like Sarah Palin’s drive and her character but let me be very clear; there is no way in the world I would ever vote for her to become the President. I totally understand her commitment to our country and all that however to be in that position I believe you need to have some sort of experience.
Yes, this is America, the home of the brave, land of opportunities and all but running a country is something that needs to be taken seriously. I just don’t believe she is truly ready for the huge task and responsibilities at hand. However, that’s not to say she won’t be in the future, but definitely not in 2012. This is not Alaska…this is America!
