Forget Obama, student wants to meet Bieber

Seeing President Obama may have been exciting enough for students at Bluestone High School in Virginia Tuesday, but at least one girl was hoping the commander-in-chief could put her in touch with someone else.

“Do you know Justin Bieber?" asked a student during the surprise visit.

"I do," Obama responded. "I do. He's a very nice young man... I think he's got a girlfriend. He's a nice guy."

Obama first met the teen pop star sensation at the White House Easter Egg hunt in 2010 and earlier this year the president arranged for Bieber to meet a fan whose father had died during the 9/11 attacks.

    Obama and Bieber.......both just Hollywood celebs, that have nothing to offer this country.

    Tell this person to get something meaningful in their life.

      obama continues to use photo ops and popular themes, which pale in comparison to the damage he is doing ... all in a vain attempt to get reelected ... and, his blindly devoted cult followers continue to be led and suckered by this shameless, self-serving con man !!!

      This person has a great life. She is an A student in advanced classes. She is a three sport athlete. She's active in school and community theater. I could go on and on.Don't make comments about someone you don't know.

    Correction: Bluestone Senior High is in Skipwith, VA, not NC. I should know, I graduated from there.

    Who are you to presume she does not have anything meaningful in her life? She is a 14 year old who was nervous about meeting the POTUS?

    Get some meaning in your life!

    I think its ridiculous that this is on CNN's website! Kids need to be more informed and educated, interested in politics as they are our future.

    @Rick....and what is it we receive when reading your insightful posts? Oh, That's right..... 24X7 criticism of the President. That's truly a special talent that has a shelf life.

    A lot of americans are hurting right now sir....and if you for once considered them as "fellow americans", you would lower the volume on your usual faux news rhetoric. It just sounds like "sophmoric word blurb" during difficult times.

    Of course if you don't know anyone having a tough time, congratulations...must be a confined circle of people you know.

      Obama is a pathetic loser.

      It was your president that said "We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us" No other president in our history called 'fellow Americans' enemies.

      He also said "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”

      Barry's chickens are coming home to roost.

        I think you need to check the whole context of that "knife" comment out on Fact Check . org
        Frankly it was in jest to someone in the crowd and a quote from "the Untouchables" about a Philadelphia mob.

        As for the "enemies" quote that was made to Latino voters and the full quote was: "If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, "We're going to punish our enemies and we're going to reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us," if they don't see that kind of upsurge....

        Just like biblical quotes taken out of context you can take anything and make it appear something it wasn't.
        If you are going to put words in someone's mouth go for the full quote, and put it in context.

    Obama 2012! He is the best president in the world! We are coming together to defeat hate from the Tea-Bagger/Republicans, Klan, White Citizen Council, or whatever name they come up with!
