Lil Wayne Says He's Been Researching Barack Obama & Mitt Romney

Even though he can't vote, Lil Wayne is educating himself about the presidential candidates.

Lil Wayne might not be able to vote in the upcoming election, but that doesn't mean he's uninterested in politics. During an interview with MTV News, Weezy said that he's been brushing up on Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, stating that while he doesn't support one over the other, he's keeping up with their stances so he knows what to expect when the victor is decided.

"Leaning one way? No, I'm not. I'm not leaning towards no one only because I can't. I can't vote, unfortunately, I'm an ex-con. I did follow it, I am paying attention to it and me following it meaning I kinda did my research on who both of these people were because that's all I can do from a personal standpoint. I can't vote, so all I can do is figure out who these people are and whoever you guys choose, at least I know a little bit about them."

Wayne is prohibited from voting due to his conviction on a 2007 gun charge.

    C'mon Weezy you supposed to be dissing SNOOP LION for taking your phrase Drop it Like Its Hot and making a sell-out ass commercial for what the fuck was it? You dissed him awhile back after he made the song c'mon son where all the shit talking at now?

    THIS JUST IN: "Mitt Romney has been projected winner of the 2012 presidential debate based on newly-surfaced information detailing Obama's biological father that will sure raise caution and suspicions of the American people. Frank Marshall Davis, the communist party propagandist, was found to be President Obama's "real" father. Pictures (shown above) have displayed the remarkable resemblence between the two, and disprove the relationship of Obama and believed father Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama. The cover-up was made to hide an illicit affair to allow time for Government paper approval." ^^^^DAMN SON...I'M ALL FOR OBAMAS SECOND TERM, BUT I REALLY HOPE HE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THIS...OR WAS LIED TO BY FAMILY. THIS NIGGAS PRESIDENT! THIS ISN'T NO HIGHSCHOOL DRAMA THIS IS REAL AMERICAN PROBLEMS THAT NEED TO BE DEALT WITH. LYING TO US WOULD REALLY BE A DISGRACE...

    If we get Romney elected, whatever we get we deserve it. All because you expected somebody to fix an 8 year mess in 4 years with no support, in fact there was resistance in just about any move he made. Four years ago before Obama we already had a 2nd generation politician/businessman and you saw what happened, and you want that again? Then again these are some of the same people that think Lil Wayne is agood rapper, so I shouldn't be surprised, just prepared.

      this is a response to anonymous down there riding obamas dick. first off you said obama didnt start a war what do you can lybia when we went and helped kill gaddafi. and capturing osama bin laden that funny i never saw obama suited up going to find him but our military did and they deserve all the credit not our idiot president and secondly alot of those members of seat team 6 who killed obama oo i mean osama and calling obama out about trying to publicize that mission ..

    • Anynymous

      If Romney wins I don't wanna hear no bitching, that's all I'm saying. If you're in the income bracket that makes sense to support Romney more power to you, if you can pay your education and your kids education straight out from k to college then Romney is your guy. This from someone who lost a lot of shit during the Bush era but got it back during the Obama era so yeah, personally my last 4 years were better and keep improving so why would I go vote for somebody that talks the same shit that started the whole decline process.

    • anonymous

      he got bin laden because of bush torturing people...obama had the whole congress on his side for 2 years and didnt do shit but spend a bunch of money that we dont have. u really think GM would have just shut down? NO The main problem is we spend money on stupid shit, how many noticed the signs that said the gov't is paying for the road construction? how much do u think those dumbass signs cost to make and place everywhere in America. HE DIDNT DO WHAT HE SAID. He is great w/ speeches and is probably a cool guy to hang out with but that doesnt mean he is the best at leading the country. Do u think any CEO of any company could put out his type #s for 4 years and still have a job? Fuck no

    • Anonymous

      He made it worse by what? Bringing troops home? Killing Bin Laden? At least he didn't start a fake war and spent all the money on defense, not saying he didn't spend money but at least his intentions were more legit that dubya who you guys miss so much.

    • GK

      The problem is he said he was going to fix the problem in four years, and he didn't. He made it worse. He's the one that made the promises, and he's the one that will have to live by them.

  • ETK

    you niggas are on some dumb shit if you think Obama shouldn't win... he ain't great but he's much better than that turd stain who doesn't EVEN SUPPORT MEDICAL MARIJUANA. all Shit Romney is good for is economy matters! everything else he will fail, fail and bury six feet under. he'd make George Bush look like motherfuckin' Abraham Washington

  • lol

    schwarz-you might wanna check on percentages instead of total numbers....while you are at it...check the % of the population that is black, the % of blacks that vote, the % of blacks education levels, the % of kids raised by single parents-by race-compare all of these and get back to me...then you will see why your people have the problems they do. i didnt own any slaves, burn any crosses, bomb any church's, etc so dont blame me for what someone with the same skin color as me did, just as i wont blame you for what your people in africa are doing to this day to their own people

  • SCHWARZ

    ONLY REASON Y'ALL CRYING RIGHT NOW IS BECAUSE UR LIVES R UNSTABLE WHEN ALL THIS WAS HAPPENING 2 N!GGAS, COULDN'T GET A JOB OR FIND A VIABLE WAY TO SUPPORT SELF & FAMILY BECAUSE OF THE SIMPLE FACT OF RACISM Y'ALL DIDN'T GIVE A FCUK

    • Anonymous

      really?? you are the only one speaking on racial terms...common white people do not think like this, as a matter of fact they think black people are "cool"(especially the young generation). Go to a rap concert, they are predominately white. u obviously think everyone is out to get you. there is trash in every race just the same there is good. Fuck this racial bullshit, people dont give a fuck just because they dont care about anything but themselves not because of your skin color

  • SCHWARZ

    You are the apart of the 47% too you cowardly confused shit for brains no backbone having hiphop listening too I really wish I was black bitch ass! romney could give a rats ass about you or your point of view! You repeating the same destructive talking points from every anti obama supporter polluting TV! were in the process of UNDOING what the last 46 presidents have created and you wanna complain about the last 4 years? you bitch ass...where were you 8 years ago? fuckin lame ass internet rebels without a cause with your youtube expertise...cant tell your mouth from your asshole... +++++++++ LMMFAO THAT'S A WHITEBOY TOO! LOL RIGHT ON BRUH COMMENT OF THE DAY

    • lol

      you do realize that hip hop artists listen to white artists also right? only stupid fucks think that only black people should listen to hip hop or white people want to be black because they like hip hop. you think obama is getting it bad because you just started paying attention....bush got it 100 times worse. people that say anything bad about obama get called racists. we dont complain about the last 46 presidents because they arent running moron. i voted for obama and i regret it because he is a poor leader. its cute how you think its ok for you to be a racist piece of shit because of things that someone of a similar skin color went through in the PAST yet people with the same skin color are suffering in Africa right now, what are you doing for them? look up what george bush did for africa during his term. how do you think the people feel, those who actually went through oppression, when young punks like you try to stake claim to what they went through? you are united because of your skin color? open your eyes kid, look around you-nobody is united because of a skin color, political party, religion or any other category morons like you try to place people. people are individuals and you make an ass clown out of yourself for thinking youre so smart because you pay attention to black history month, well in 20 years let me know how you feel about your youthful aggression...you will laugh at yourself

    I really hope nobody decides to vote for obama because he is black...is he black? U guys really think that you should pay for every girl who wants birth control outta your check? whats wrong w/ a condom?? People need to wake up and take care of shit. If you dont want a kid then dont let it happen. I truly believe some people out there need assistance(food stamps etc...) but at the same time people dont even try. If you feed an animal free food it comes back the next day expecting that food to be there day after day. Thats where we are. I hire people at my place of business and you would think how much people are struggling right now that people would try harder at work or dress decent to an interview(doesnt have to be designer shit but ripped jeans and a stupid ass t-shirt??) The day countries decide not to accept our dollar because its worthless...look out

      To the first anonymous if you think he is wrong then who is going to pay for the birth control. You must also think the money taken out of my check doesnt pay for youre food stamps but a magic man that just rewards you for your laziness

    NO KIDDIN MAN! Newsflash...this has always happened, why Obama get a pass? If Wallstreet bamboozled Obama, did they not do the same to Bush, to get us in this position in the 1st place? Every other president has been equally ridiculed when not progressing any...now that there is a black president a whole new demographic is paying attention and discovering what has been going on for the history of the US, and taking it as some sort of racism. Obama's biggest success in his term has been saying "ok go get him" when they found out where Bin Laden was. He wants to take credit as if any other person in the world would've said "nah let him go". Bottom line is Obama hasn't been good and who knows if Romney will be any better, but Romney could use Obama's exact approach when he was running for his 1 term..."Change", cuz ain't shit changed in the last 4 years.

      I know why you stayed anonymous because you are as ignorant as they come.

They could be green and orange race has NOTHING to do with it

      READ THIS PEOPLE: "Bottom line is Obama hasn't been good and who knows if Romney will be any better, but Romney could use Obama's exact approach when he was running for his 1 term..."Change", cuz ain't shit changed in the last 4 years" ^ same old "let the n*****s work and we'll take the credit" mentality. Now Obama's approach to the presidency sounds better when Romney's doing it? Take your hood off before you comment next time.

    a shockingly mature comment from weezy haha.

  • Real Talk 100

    I refuse to throw my vote away on a fake Republican, so Im voting for the real Republican in the race, Governor Gary Johnson on the Libertarian ticket. Unlike Romney and Obama who are roughly the same, Johnson supports Free Market Capitalism, Limited Government, restoring the Constitution, ending the War on Drugs, bringing our troops home, and reigning in the Federal Reserve, among several other things I believe in.

    • Afi K. James

      Got that right, Gary Johnson is our last hope, obamney will be more of the same.

    • TyrannyofMan

      ^^^This right here! I dont consider giving my vote on someone who truly deserves and could bring REAL change a waste...You people who believe we only have 2 choices are the ones wasting your vote...You got all these opinions like you know what your talking about, yet you aint even smart enough to do your research but will so blindly let the MSM tell you who to vote for Gary Johnson is our only real hope left...It's up to you to do the research and make sure you cast your vote wisely..End the FED, end Big Government, end big spending on BS, free our markets so that the monopolies can be broken up, end the IRS and put in a consumption tax...So many changes that could really happen..But naw...You focus on the only 2 candidates that further corporation agendas and offer no real change at all...Good luck wit that

      Don't even fuckin' lie, you're only voting for him cause of the drugs stance.

      @ Really You and a whole lot of people never heard of Gary Johnson because the corporate media successfully did their job to focus on just two corporate pawns instead of politicians, like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson, who will go against and ruin their corporate orders.

    If Obama loses the election, you can blame/thank Wall Street for bamboozling him. How is it right that an entire news network questions the Presidents citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country.
