Out of all the Hispanics this POTUS had to choose was her? No offense, but I HIGHLY doubt that she's qualified for the job unless I'm missing something here. Also, is she even a U.S. citizen? Really I'm not sure if she is. If so, then I apologize. I will stay by statement until somebody proves to me that she qualifies for such a high position.

Didn't he also get advice from Lady GaGa about some social issue
a month ago? Something about bullying I think? The 2012 elections
can't get here fast enough.

You have got to be kidding me!
Looks like he is getting a bit desperate.
The problem is, there will be people who think he is great for doing this.

She's pretty hot so I'll give kudos for that, best decision that clown has made in 3 years.

You mean like Ronald Reagan?
Or Arnold Schwarzenegger?
California is (or, at least used to be) the 6th largest economy in the world. An Austrian bodybuilder somehow managed to bankrupt it.
A public raised on screen idols, with the collective attention span of a particularly ill gnat, is unlikely to choose a leader with a proven track record when instead they can have their favourite star. For the next 15 minutes, anyway.
But who cares when those nice political parties spend millions of dollars just on the fireworks show at rallies? Pretty lights, pretty lights....

Her Hips Don't Lie....They Don't.

So you must trust what she says




I am OutKast Searcher...and I approve this message




Anyway...I don't see the problem...getting someone who can relate to a demographic...that is politics 101. That is what they use Palin for...to talk to all the white folks.

Qualifications? She's perfectly qualified for what she will be doing. Campaign for Obama. Make a few commercials, pose for a few posters and maybe do a music video that gets played in the schools. Get some free publicity, sell more albums. Pure propaganda. Then she gets to go on the talk shows and say how awful the education system is to Hispanic children and how she's trying to fight that by "giving back". I used to be a fan, not anymore.

From wiki:

wiki - shakira


Shakira was born on February 2, 1977 in Barranquilla, Colombia. She is the only child of Nidia Ripoll and William Mebarak Chadid and is of Lebanese (Arab), Macedonian,[20][21][22] Spanish (Catalan and Castilian), and Italian descent.[2][23][24][25][26] She has eight older half-siblings from her father's previous marriage.[27] Shakira's father is originally from the United States, born in New York, at the age of 5 his family moved to Sincelejo from New York then relocated to Barranquilla.


So, although shakira can probably claim to be a U.S. citizen, it's also quite clear that like obama, she was not raised in the U.S. and you see how putting people in high office that have no U.S. roots works out.

I think for all of you this has more to do with it being Obama and a (D) next to his name then it has to do with Shakira or her position.

Could be true in some small way.

Although it's hard for me to imagine someone with an (R) next to their name scraping the bottom of the pandering barrel to this extent.

Small? I was just checking on you're previous posts and history.. Could be more then small.

Also, i would say the end of you're statement more then proved my point.

While I may not necessarily support the selection he could've done much worse than Shakira. She has done a lot of philanthropic work with children and education and has even had her own non-profit organization since 1995 devoted to building schools for poor children.

if I had to pick a latino to serve on my board, I think I'd pick Salma Hayek

Yes, but Obama's not allowed to use Politics 101. Yeah, I know every other president before him has done the same thing, but he's Obama. He is held to a much higher standard. I also approve of your message.

You do realize that no matter how much you say that, it's still a lie, right?


And Shakira is perfectly qualified for this job. She actually founded The Barefoot Foundation that has schools in Latin America and she works on educational programs with the World Bank.:



Internationally-renowned artist Shakira and World Bank Group President Robert B. Zoellick will launch Monday a US$300 million joint initiative aimed at expanding development programs for young children in Latin America and the Caribbean.

She's the perfect person for the job, but you haters gotta keep on hatin'.

Selma Hayek. Serve. Board. Nooooo I am soooo not going there. Get myself banned real fast.


Bill Clinton might have, but, I won't.

I'd have to say that the recommendation of Shakira for this post probably came from Obama's "Senior Staff". I'm pretty sure that I know what "Senior Staff". What was Obama's daughter's names again?
