President Obama doesn't usually slow jam the news, but when he does, boy is it good. President Barack Obama was on Tuesday night's episode of "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and rather than doing his usual sit-down-and-talk-about-politics schtick, he tried something a little different.

A recurring segment on Fallon's late show is "slow jamming the news" -- but this time, Obama joined in on the fun. He used the segment to talk -- er, we mean "slow jam" -- about student loans. And though he may sound a bit too academic doing it, Obama was complemented by Fallon's smooth "ohhhhh yeahhhh's," making the segment both hilarious and educational. Well, at least we think so. Watch the clip below and let us know: do you think President Obama "slow jamming the news" is awesome -- or inappropriate?

    All the awesome votes on here will go to the polls in November and look at the ballot and say, "Man President Obama was so awesome on Fallon, I just HAVE to vote for him!!!"

    IF our country was on the right track, I'd have no problem with this appearance, but... well some of us know where we're at.

    I think it is awesome that the President of the free (freeeee) world can show that he does not have a stick up his ass like all the other presidents, he know how to have fun...damn if he do, damn if he don't. As for the job market, put out a survey and see how much people got jobs and turn them down or quit because they did not like it, come on people get real get your heads out of the cloud and come down to earth, our President will be back in office come November 2012.

    TERRY ANDERSON, A BLACK LOS ANGELES TALK RADIO HOST,
    WENT DOWN A LIST OF THINGS SENATOR OBAMA SAID THAT AREN'T EXACTLY CORRECT.

    1.) Selma March Got Me Born - NOT EXACTLY, your parents felt safe enough to
    have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965.
    (Google 'Obama Selma ' for his full March 4, 2007 speech and articles about its various untruths.) ! !

    2.) Father Was A Goat Herder - NOT EXACTLY, he was a privileged, well-educated youth, who went to work with the Kenyan Government.

    3.) Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter - NOT EXACTLY, he was part of one of
    the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.

    4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom - NOT EXACTLY;
    your cousin Raila Odinga created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007
    in Kenya. It was the first widespread violence there in decades.
    The current government is pro-American but Odinga wants to overthrow it and establish Muslim Sharia law.
    Your half-brother, Abongo Obama, is Odinga's follower.
    You interrupted your New Hampshire campaigning to speak to Odinga on the phone.
    Check out the following link for verification of that....and for more.

    Obama's cousin Odinga ran for president in Kenya and tried to get Sharia
    Muslim law in place there. When Odinga lost the elections, his followers burned Christians' homes and then burned men, women and children alive in a Christian church where they took shelter... Obama SUPPORTED his cousin before the election process here started. Google Obama and Odinga and see what you get. No one wants to know the truth.

    5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian - NOT EXACTLY, she does her
    daily Salat prayers at 5 AM according to her own interviews. Not to mention,
    Christianity wouldn't allow her to have been one of 14 wives to 1 man.

    6.) My Name is African Swahili - NOT EXACTLY,
    your name is Arabic and 'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language.
    Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama.

    Barack Hussein Obama is not half black.
    Obama is the first Arab-American President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama
    is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side. Although Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya, his father's family was mainly Arabs..
    Barack Hussein Obama's father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father's birth certificate states he's Arab, not African Negro). From....and for more....go to.....

    7.) I Never Practiced Islam - NOT EXACTLY,
    you practiced it daily at school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years,
    until your wife made you change so you could run for office.

    4-3-08 Article 'Obama was 'quite religious in Islam''
    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?...
    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?...

    8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian - NOT EXACTLY,
    you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your own book).

    February 28, 2008. Kristoff from the " New York Times " a year ago:
    " Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent.
    In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it'll give Alabama voters heart attacks),
    Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as 'one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.'
    This is just one example of what Pamela is talking about when she says 'Obama's narrative is being altered,
    enhanced and manipulated to whitewash troubling facts.' "

    14.) A Life Magazine Article Changed My Outlook On Life - NOT EXACTLY,
    Life has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never did, exist.

    15.) I Won't Run On A National Ticket In '08 - NOT EXACTLY,
    here you are, despite saying, live on TV, which you would not have enough experience by then,
    and you are all about having experience first.

    16.) Voting 'Present' is Common In Illinois Senate - NOT EXACTLY,

    your bill was rejected by your own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation -
    mainly because of your Nuclear donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

    23.) I Have Released My State Records - NOT EXACTLY,
    as of March, 2008, state bills you sponsored or voted for have yet to be released, exposing all the special interests pork hidden within.

    24.) I Took On The Asbestos Altgeld Gardens Mess - NOT EXACTLY,
    you were part of a large group of people who remedied Altgeld Gardens.
    You failed to mention anyone else but yourself, in your books.

    25.) My Economics Bill Will Help America - NOT EXACTLY,
    your 111 economic policies were just combined into a proposal which lost 99-0,
    and even YOU voted against your own bill.

    26.) I Have Been A Bold Leader In Illinois - NOT EXACTLY,
    even your own supporters claim to have not seen BOLD action on your part.

    27.) I Passed 26 Of My Own Bills In One Year - NOT EXACTLY,
    they were not YOUR bills, but rather handed to you,
    after their creation by a fellow Senator, to assist you in a future bid for higher office.

    28.) No One on my campaign contacted Canada about NAFTA - NOT EXACTLY,
    the Canadian Government issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with them.

    35.) I don't Have Lobbyists - NOT EXACTLY,
    you have over 47 lobbyists, and counting.

    36.) My Campaign Had Nothing To Do With The 1984 Ad - NOT EXACTLY,
    your own campaign worker made the ad on his Apple in one afternoon.

    37.) I Have Always Been Against Iraq - NOT EXACTLY,
    you weren't in office to vote against it AND you have voted to fund it every single time.

    38.) I Have Always Supported Universal Health Care - NOT EXACTLY,
    your plan leaves us all to pay for the 15,000,000 who don't have to buy it.

    39.) My uncle liberated Auschwitz concentration camp - NOT EXACTLY,
    your mother had no brothers and the Russian army did the liberating.

    So, who EXACTLY is this Obama guy and what is he trying to sell us?!

    Please let your loved ones and friends know about this fraud.

    I can't believe that 52% of Americans find this slow jam performance by our President awesome while four percent less find it inapproprite. The Chief Executive should not be givng a singing performance in the White House and making a fool of himself, let alone slow jamming, whetever that is. Even if the economy was good our president, no matter who he is still shouldn't lower himself by giving a sing performance in the White House This country is still in a recession and many are still unemployed and this president goes golfing, goes on LATE NIGHT WITH DAVID LETTERMAN and mocks the mentally retarded on live televsion, entertains Paul McCartney, and he slow jam performance. President Obama is a disgrace to the presidency! And people said Reagan and W. Bush were idiots. Obama must go!

    My speakers are dying so I couldn't hear it, but I think it's great that he can let loose and have some fun. Just because he's the President doesn't mean he should be serious all the time.

    He hit the heart of "one" problem for many students and parents of this future generation in a fun way and showed a little talent at it too, and many of you (not all) are just pea green with envy.
