“If you having world problems I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems but a Mitt ain’t one.” – Jay-Z, today at one of Obama’s final 2012 campaign rallies in Columbus, Ohio.

Reports Boston.com:

The rapper and producer performed his hit ‘‘99 Problems’’ as he and Bruce Springsteen opened for an Obama rally in Columbus, Ohio. He changed a key word that rhymes with ‘‘witch’’ to make his own political endorsement. He sang: ‘‘I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one.’’

Springsteen performed first, as he did earlier Monday in Madison, Wis.

Is there a bigger F-you Obama could have possibly issued to the Tea Party wingnuts in the Republican party who’ve spent the past four years challenging his birth certificate, academic record, sexuality, his ability to deliver a speech without a teleprompter, and every piece of “socialist” legislation he’s tried to pass than having a big, black rapper replace the word “bitch” with “Mitt” in a song at a campaign rally? I think not.

As for tomorrow, what should we expect, Barry?
