Forget Afghanistan, President Obama‘s got a new war on his hands –  a very public feud with very little reality star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. On his recent appearance on morning talk show The View, Obama was asked if he thought Snooki should run for political office, and he responded by saying he didn’t know who Snooki was.

Snooks isn’t buying it. "I know he knows who I am. Why did he have to lie and say he didn’t know me? He did say Snooki and JWoww about the tanning stuff and now he doesn’t know who I am? He has to stop lying," she said.

Snooki was, of course, referring to Obama’s speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner back in May, in which Obama jokingly referred to hidden items in his controversial health care bill. "This next provision is called the Jersey Shore-Up. It reads: ‘The following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, J-WOWW, the Situation, and House Minority Leader John Boehner.’"

Snooks famously took to her twitter account to speak out against Obama and his tanning tax in June, and then again on the season premiere of the second Jersey Shore season. "I don’t go tanning anymore because Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning and I feel like he did that intentionally for us," she told MTV cameras. "[Sen. John] McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning. Because he’s pale and would probably want to be tan," she explained. McCain quickly tweeted at the pint-sized guidette "@Sn00ki u r right I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama’s tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!"

    Does Snooki really think Obama knows who she is? She knows he's the president right?

    Did it ever occur to "Snooki" that Obama doesn't write his own speeches and was simply reading off the teleprompter and that no one over the age of 15 really gives a crap about her in the first place?!

    Dear Nicole, Snooki, or whatever pet name you prefer to call yourself – we understand that your TV career is going to abruptly take a nose dive as soon as your season ends. Therefore, it might be to your advantage to work towards something with a little (okay, A LOT MORE) substance. No one cares that you have to pay a 10 cent tanning tax. At the very least, use your celebrity status to hire a decent publicist and do something positive and productive for charity or the community. This way you will gain some level of public respect.
