This heavy hitter joins Obama stooges David Axelrod and Stefanie Cutter in trying to return us to the Mitt Romney tax distraction. Surely this locks up the thug rapper vote.
Rapper Kanye West, who has had his brushes with politics, stepped into the 2012 race with a biting comment directed toward Mitt Romney.
“I’m just trying to protect my stacks,” West raps on “To the World,” the opening track on the forthcoming album Cruel Summer. “Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax.”
West is the second high-profile rapper to diss the Republican presidential nominee this week.
On Monday, rapper Nicki Minaj said a line she’d rapped, in which she appeared to endorse Romney, was spoken as one of her alter egos.
West’s line draws attention to Romney’s personal finances, which have been spotlighted by the Obama campaign as evidence that Romney is out of touch with the middle class and hiding things from the American public.
And dutifully rehashed by his stenographers at The Hill, which should be embarrassed for even reporting this nonsense.
