With a powerful political enemy like Kayne West it appears President Obama should be thankful he's finishing his second term in office and therefore he's not up for re-election. West recently said in regard to Obama, "You can't effect change from inside the White House," reported the New York Daily News on June 20, 2014. West has been very outspoken regarding his feelings about Obama lately.
During a recent radio interview with Power106 FM West had strong words for Obama. West said in regard to the president that you simply have to have a lot of money to effect change and that can't be done from inside the White House. West also commented that he doesn't see good ideas as being connected to money as much and that creativity and extreme genius are very cheap. He ended this line of thought with the statement that you really don't want to go against power and that he's personally working on one mission which is a mission from God.
West was speaking during an interview in Philadelphia when he criticized Obama reports TheCelebrityCafe.com. West is well known for speaking out against anyone who goes against him. In the past Obama hit West and his new wife Kim Kardashian as being bad influences for young people due to their priorities in their lifestyle choices. West has hit back that with his skills he and not Obama can effect changes.
The White House traditionally depends a great deal on the money and influence which Hollywood has to offer for support on many vital issues. This war of words between West and Obama therefore actually has the potential to weaken Obama's presidency which is already under siege due to continued economic problems at home and heated questions about controversial foreign policy decisions dealing with terrorism, drones, and now Russia.
It appears if West really wanted to he could now make a credible bid for public office himself and the question which therefore arises is which political party is it he actually favors. West's theme of being on a mission from God is a very popular theme for a lot of people who are searching desperately for direction and some meaning in their lives during these terribly chaotic times.
