NEWS: Young Jeezy 'Not Feeling McCain'
He thinks McCain is the wrong person to be the country's cleanup man, especially since he had a chance to talk to the senator after a taping of "Saturday Night Live," during which Jeezy performed with Usher. "I told him the 'hood was f---ed up, and he was like, 'How you doing?' " Mr. 17.5 recalled. "Real talk."
They know entertainers, so they shake your hand [and say], 'I'm your friend.' But my mama is about to have surgery that I gotta pay for out of my pocket because she can't get insurance. I don't really feel McCain. It ain't just because Barack is black; he can make change. Just like Bush equals recession, Barack equals progression. I really feel that, all bullsh-- aside. He's gotta come in and keep it right.
" 'I know it's a problem, but how can we work it out?' " Young said of what he perceives Obama's philosophy to be. "Barack, he has a lot of things going for him. He's ahead of his time. Given the right chance, he'll make some type of change. We'll feel it. I really feel that. John McCain is cool, but he looks like a fraud to me."
