THEY TALK ABOUT ME LIKE A DOG: Obama A Hendrix Fan?

Above, Jimi Hendrix.

President Obama spoke before a union crowd in Milwaukee today and said this according to Politico:

“They talk about me like a dog,” Obama said with a chuckle of his political opponents. “That’s not in my prepared remarks but it’s true.”


Although the comment was characterized as a joke, it shows that President Obama is engaging in self-pity.

Funny thing, when I first heard of the comment, it made me think of the Jimi Hendrix Experience song "Stone Free."

Here's the lyrics with the line in bold:

EVERYDAY IN THE WEEK I'M IN A DIFFERENT CITY
IF I STAY TOO LONG PEOPLE TRY TO PULL ME DOWN
THEY TALK ABOUT ME LIKE A DOG
TALKIN' ABOUT THE CLOTHES I WEAR
BUT THEY DON'T REALIZE THEY'RE THE ONES WHO'S SQUARE

HEY!
AND THAT'S WHY
YOU CAN'T HOLD ME DOWN
I DON'T WANT TO BE DOWN I GOTTA MOVE
HEY

STONE FREE DO WHAT I PLEASE
STONE FREE TO RIDE THE BREEZE
STONE FREE I CAN'T STAY
I GOT TO GOT TO GOT TO GET AWAY

ALRIGHT
LISTEN TO THIS BABY
A WOMAN HERE A WOMAN THERE TRY TO KEEP ME IN A PLASTIC CAGE
BUT THEY DON'T REALIZE IT'S SO EASY TO BREAK
BUT SOMETIMES I GET A HA
FEEL MY HEART KIND OF GETTIN' HOT
THAT'S WHEN I'VE GOT TO MOVE BEFORE I GET CAUGHT

AND THE IS WHY, LISTEN TO ME BABY, YOU CAN'T HOLD ME DOWN
I DON'T WANT TO BE TIED DOWN
I GOTTA BE FREE
OWH!

I SAID
STONE FREE DO WHAT I PLEASE
STONE FREE TO RIDE THE BREEZE
STONE FREE I CAN'T STAY
GOT TO GOT TO GOT TO GET AWAY
YEAH OW!
TEAR ME LOOSE BABY

YEAH!
STONE FREE TO RIDE ON THE BREEZE
STONE FREE DO WHAT I PLEASE
STONE FREE I CAN'T STAY
STONE FREE I GOT TO I GOT TO GET AWAY
STONE FREE I GONNA LEAVE RIGHT NOW
STONE FREE DON'T TRY TO HOLD ME BACK BABY
STONE FREE GO ON DOWN THE HIGHWAY
STONE FREE OH YEAH BABY
STONE FREE GOT TO GOT TO GET AWAY
STONE FREE BYEBYE BABY


Maybe Obama is a fan of Jimi Hendrix?
