Obama drops the F-bomb
Barack Obama’s best-selling, grammy-award winning audio book Dreams From My Father is suddenly coming back to bite him in the *beep*.
The audio book has been out since 2005, but recently gained notoriety in the blogosphere after someone at the Boston Phoenix wrote about, and isolated clips of, the president doing impressions of one of his childhood friends. Swears and all.
Some people find it offensive. Some people (present company included) find it amusing. After all, it’s a true-to-life impression of his friend Ray, and Obama doesn’t hold back. And really, who *doesn’t* want to hear Obama – one of the most eloquent speakers of our time – curse like a sailor?
And let’s be honest. With the state of the economy, a few wars, and everything else on the President’s plate, I’m pretty sure he’s throwing out a fair bit of profanity these days. But, it’s unlikely that he’ll let any of that get caught on tape.
*Note – the Boston Phoenix article and associated audio clips do contain profanity. Reader and listener discretion is advised.
