wow, that song SUCKED. The video was kind of cool like the one for White America was, but the two songs that have been released from his new CD have been REALLY crappy.

The song is undoubtedly not as clever as his past songs, and the Bush message is weak at best. But it's still got a stronger message than "I like this girl, ooh ooh ooh, but she's cheating on mee, ooh ooh ooh" - thereby putting it in the top 5% bracket of current music.

I also like its musical style - something notably lacking from some of MM's past cuts.

Why's Eminem bitching about who is president? Kerry or Bush? Either way he's still going to get millions of dollars for making shit.

I was impressed. Powerful imagery and a better song than the first single. It's obviously a song with a very short shelf life though.

Plus it's just nice to know that he hates someone else besides his mom.

Ya, lets get a bunch of people that know nothing about the issues other than the garbage the P Diddy, MTV and Eminem provide to vote. Just vote! Man, it doesn't matter if you don't know anything! Just as long as Bush burns in hell! Vote!

Some people actually care about things other than money.

You seem to be implying that your vote should be based on how much you know?

I don't think this video is going to sway young voters either way. Most young voters vote the line their parents vote. I have a lot of young voters who work for me, and it's amazing to hear them repeat verbatim either what they've heard their parents say, or what they've seen on some FOX news opinion show.

I weep for the direction the 'unbiased' media is taking our culture and our youth - it seems like spin is absolutely unescapable these days.

Shouldn't it be? You want someone to vote just because Eminem or P Diddy with his Vote or Die crap tells them too? I'd rather have someone vote because they think the person that they are voting for handles the issues the way the voter thinks is best, not because that is who some magizine or TV network says to vote for.

You think Eminem suddenly took up a moral cause of getting the president out and getting young people to vote? What a bunch of crap. He's doing it because bashing Bush is the "in" thing for his demographic. And it means more sales.

You know what.....

I could give a rat's a$$ what eminem thinks should be president. As a matter of fact...... i dont think P diddy, Leo Dicaprio, etc can give a shit about us to begin with.....

Lets think about this for a second. if either Bush or Kerry wins...... tell me one way this affects Leo's career and life.........Nada...... Will P diddy all of a sudden make a career change and be political..... NO......Will bruce Springsteen have enhanced concerts...... NO....Will Kid Rock not make any more records??...... NO. Tell me right now., the changing of the President..... how the hell will it affect the entertainers of America?

They could care less what happens to us.... As long as they make millions......
If eninem gives a sh!t about this country, make your albums for just a $1. No way... its $11.99..

Ben Affleck..... its not our fault you make stupid a$$ movies that suck...... so you have nothing better to do but care about my life....

If P diddy cared so much about the democratic way, why does he have sweat shops in other countries making his clothing line...... I am so sure the people you are rallying to your stupid Vote or Die rallys want jobs...... will you give them that job.... NO.

I hope ignorant people dont buy in to what these stupid entertainers have to say because they dont know what we go through... they are only out for their own..

I would guess that his history of falling down below society's safety nets has a huge part to do with his views.

I know it shaped my views (Spent years on welfare after my father left my mom with three children never to be heard from again).
