Obama ‘relaxed and happy,’ Mick Jagger says

President Obama couldn’t wait to get a sneak peek at tonight’s concert in the White House featuring Rolling Stones’ famed front man Mick Jagger.

The musician tweeted earlier Tuesday that the president popped in for a few songs while he was rehearsing for tonight’s event.

“Met President Obama who listened to a few tunes during rehearsal he seemed really relaxed and happy!” Jagger tweeted.

Meanwhile, L'Wren Scott, Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, tweeted it was “amazing to meet the president” and we “loved every moment.”

Jagger is among several legendary musicians invited to play at a concert in the East Room Tuesday night in recognition of Black History Month. The performance, called Red, White, and Blues, features other such famed performers as B. B. King, Buddy Guy, Keb Mo and Gary Clarke Jr. Trombone Shorty.

The event is to be broadcast on PBS next week.

        Tercel, I have matnel lapses nearly every day, without the media scrutiny. I have resisted Perry, because of his stance on illegal immigration. I think there needs to be a program for these people, but for the pro-illegal crowd, this means blanket amnesty. In that case, why don't we throw open our doors to the world and et everyone walk in and go broke in ninety days. We who don't trust politicians, number far more than those who do; I will look at Perry, but if you are close to him, you might suggest not being photographed with pistols over his head. It might win votes in Texas, but it won't help in other states. I have been a big game hunter all my life, but I only carry a weapon in the mountains, and I never advertise the fact that I have one. If you deserve to be on the receiving end of one, you will know I have a weapon, soon enough. Otherwise, you just tip your hand to your enemies for no purpose.I will look at Perry a little closer in the near future. I know he must court the Hispanic voter in Texas to get elected, but I've talked to many Hispanics who feel they are working for lower wages because of the Illegal aliens; there is not the unity there that you might expect. The fact that Liberals hate him is an indication that there may be some redeeming qualities to this man.Reply

      The Rev. Franklin Graham says President Barack Obama has “given Islam a pass,” including ignoring atrocities against Christians in the Muslim world — so much so that the evangelist says he cannot “categorically” say Obama is not a Muslim.

    Can a guy have a break? Would rather see a confused and flustered guy like say Santorum.....? A balanced guy is what the doctor recomended, calmed, cerebral and in control.

        Humanitarian, environmentalist, makes the right calls, does the right things. You can argue that he has made some mistakes, and we all have, because we're human. I'd say that makes him very different from the previous president, and the GOP candidtates all together.

        Because he IS the good guy, it is the GOP that will destroy the country, they don't WANT to but they can't help it!

      • NObama 2012

        oh... humanitarian, lets see how this plays out when your standing in a bread line. All obama has done is buy votes and advance a socialistic agenda. When you sit in your home and watch your cold breath exhale because you can't afford to buy heat...think about the wonderfull obama. The total unemployment rate is 19.8%, energy prices going up, and another war is looming...and I guess it is all President George Bushes fault..eh?

        Frankly why not, it was George W. Bush's fault.

        He could have gone to the American people after 9/11 and stated: "Due to the fact that we have been attacked, and we find ourselves facing a war in Afghanistan to bring the perpetrators to justice. I am asking Congress to rescind the tax break legislation that was recently passed that would have provided each American taxpayer a $600 rebate check. We will need that money to fund the war effort instead of borrowing heavily from China to fund the war effort. Borrowing off the books to fund a war will double the Federal deficit, and will destabilize the economy."

        I am sure any reasonable sane person knows that should have been done...if not at the time of Afghanistan, but certainly when George W. Bush decided to invade Iraq looking for non-existent WMD it should have been done. But NO those tax rebate checks kept being sent, and the tax-breaks for the wealthiest 1% kept getting their massive tax breaks. That is why George W. Bush will eventually be considered our worst and most destructive president.

    It is so nice to hear that someone is happy and relaxed. Have you seen Romney or Santorum lately?

    They seem so stressed. Something about those two that bothers me. I don't know but there is something and I can't point my finger.

    Go Jager. Got the moves likes Jager. I love it.

    Thanks for the tweet Mick! No wonder the Pres. is relaxed, watching these pathetic GOP idiots. Hope the concert is televised sometime ...

    Considering the field of candidates that the GOP has dug this time around, when it comes to domestic politics...I'm not surprised.

    When the Tea Party first formed, I figured the GOP nomination for 2012 would be a circus. But even I underestimated how unhiged and disjointed the process would be.

    Of course relaxed – These GOP nut jobs would love to see him sweat wouldn't they? Well the news for all of you crazies is that he like all of the American people can see right through you lot of idiots and you know what?

    If you had Jaggers energy you could talk. THe guy is awsome as is our president. Love how the repos take everything the first family does and turns it into a chance to show how mean and nasty they are. Keep it up your candidates are loosing this election because of their nasty remarks and you guys are just helping them. Llot's of people not only democrats are tired of listening to you nut jobs. People don't have to be christian to be good and in a countyr based on religious freedom the repos apparently don't want people to be free.

    I'm very proud of our President and his family for how well they have personified who a President should act. He demonstrates how he cares about the common people of this country and I love how he does not allow all the dirt thrown and him to touch him or his family. A teflon coating. I have a healthy respect for this individual and, if possible, would love to see him President for the rest of the life of this country.

    Why is it that every time we have a Democrat in the White House, one of the first iuesss that gets raised is, homos in the military?Do Democrats really think that our military is just another of their patronage jobs programs?Do they not understand that the military is supposed to be a fighting force?Do the Democrats really think that any of our potential enemies will do anything but laugh when they see a band of angry American lesbians cresting a hill and headed towards them? Do the Democrats want our American military to be the butt of jokes around the world, instead of the most proficient military in the history of the planet?Some of the women and a few of the men who are in our military are homosexual, but because they can not flaunt their sexual preference while in the service, there is a modicum of order and discipline maintained. When they are discovered, they are bounced out, for the good of the service.Middle America, is not going to send their sons to fight under the direction of, "Captain Gay-way" That crap may happen on Star Trek, but not in the real world.There is simply no groundswell of support to change the current policy and the Democrats had better learn that our military is not the place for them to play their social experiment games.Oh, and to Obama, this isn't the sort of "Hope and Change" that millions of Americans voted for you to accomplish. You are going to be another Jimmy Carter, if you keep this crap up.
