Skip to comments.PRESIDENT GAFFE'S BIGGER PROBLEMS!
Posted on 03/21/2009 9:41:53 PM PDT by jodiluvshoes
hen 84% of the American people, according to the AOL Hot Seat weekend poll, think a joke you cracked on late night television was either tone-deaf/insensitive or worse yet flat-out offensive then you might think you have problems. (Heh who are we kidding? You do! You do!) Just because Britain's largest daily newspaper has a top ten gaffe reel assembled and online before your presidency is barely 60 days old, you might believe that you're the laughingstock of serious members of the world community of leaders. (Again, likely, you're right.) And when you take the time to address an Islamic Republic via YouTube (after they had been burning you in effigy for weeks) with a plea to come to the table of intellects and have a philosophical wine and cheese night about how the world looks in your unicorn-excretion of utopia, but can still hear the ripple of laughter from Tehran five days later, you might even wonder if you deserve it. (Again, batting a thousand on this one champ!)
Now if these elements composed the entire universe of faux pas committed in your time in office then you might even be able to withstand them.
But if these embarrassments followed things like giving the Prime Minister of Britain twenty-five DVD's that were not even compatible with European media players, or accepting priceless gifts from fellow heads of state that were made out of the very historical relics that loosed the chains holding freedom from people like you from being able to achieve your dreams, then it just begin to looks tacky.
But the truth is Mr. President you're not tacky.
You're cheap. Selfish. You bathe in arrogance. And your words sans teleprompter are cruel, cutting, and more times than not confusing.

“And your words sans teleprompter are cruel, cutting, and more times than not confusing.”
And I would add Moronic.
And the total U.S. is profoundly screwed because of Obama and all of his leftist friends putting leftist politics into action.
And some folks are worried that if Bizzar’O is removed from office, we’ll get Joe Biden...
He’s Biden redux.
Biden would be better than Obama because he’d be such a laughingstock nothing would get done in DC. He doesn’t have the clout Obama does.
I like gridlock. When there’s gridlock in DC the American people do better.
Man, he’s gonna get a visit from the Secret Service, dissin’ the Big O like that.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think I’d feel better with dopey joe. We know who he is, and the people that he would nominate. They’re typical rats, not this wild-eyed hate crowd.
We have “The Bottom of the Barrel Blues.”
Obama really is stupid, isn’t he?
Pretty scathing commentary. And true.
but but but
he’s the first black president!
It’s so wonderful isn’t it?
It forgives everything.
Can’t we all just get along and do what he says and laugh at his jokes?
Superb! Well deserved ass rippin’.
.......seeking out the late night spotlight in ways that even make former President Clinton look chaste.......
Compared to B0Z0, Clintoon almost looks like a candidate for sainthood.
His ideas and methods have become.....unsound
Oh stop whining!
It only cost you half your life savings to see this jerk in the White House!
And it’s historical. You bet it is. But not in a good way.
It’s a damn disaster with this whatever the hell he is as POTUS.
I think that's the reason he chose Bumblin' Joe - Impeachment Insurance.
Obama has lost this Presidency. I know it is only 60 days, but when he signed the “Stimulus” bill that was written purely along ideological lines and had very little stimulus in it, he effed up not only the US economy but the global economy. The world has reacted accordingly.
Obama, you screwed the US and yourself because YOU are so ideologically blind and rule from the hard left despite history proving over and over again that socialism/communism are failed economic models. Because you are such a Mental Midget (profit to earnings ratio - hello a white President would have had his ass handed him with that gaffe) the world has little chance of surviving this melt down. You own this melt down with the trillions of non-stimulus dollars you signed into law.
I thought that article was fantastic! Spot on, in fact.
Thank you very much for posting it here.
Kevin just poured a 55 gallon barrel of Ass-wup all over this fool! All of it 100% true.
I would add thin skinned.
I remember Denzel Washington as Hurricane Carter in the movie "Hurricane" getting pulled over after the murder. The officer said that they were looking for two black guys. Denzel says "Any two'll do?" sarcastically.
You people waiting desperately for a black President: ANY black will do??
Just sent this link to a Brit pal so they realize not all American’s approve of this toad.
DAY-um! THAT’S gonna leave a MARK!!
You will enjoy this rant.
Just remember—third in line is Nancy.
Dumb as a post. If you say prayers before you go to sleep, pray that the good Lord wakes up the American people; I’ve been doing this since the election...I think God is listening.
If you don’t, start, it’s important.
I ran into a couple of Obamists tonight at dinner. They still swoon and say we need to spend more on “children’s health.” The husband is in the military to make it even worse, and he loves Chairman O.
It’s obvious that this newfound pride is not confined to Americans alone. All across the world, Mr. Obama’s election has helped mend America’s tattered image as a racist, violent cowboy, willing to retaliate with bombs at the slightest provocation. The huge outpouring of international support following the election shows that America can still win new friendships while rebuilding its old ones, and provides Mr. Obama with unprecedented diplomatic leverage over our remaining enemies. When Russian tanks start pouring into eastern Europe and Iranian missiles begin raining down on Jerusalem, their leaders will know they will be facing a man who not only conquered America’s racial divide but the hearts of the entire Cannes film community. And those Al Qaeda terrorists plotting a dirty nuke or chemical attack on San Francisco face a stark new reality: while they may no longer need to worry about US Marines, they are looking down the barrel of a strongly worded diplomatic condemnation by a Europe fully united in their deep sympathy for surviving Americans.
In his famous speech at the Lincoln Memorial 45 years ago, Dr. King said “I have a dream that one day my children will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Let us now take pride that Tuesday we Americans proved that neither thing matters anymore. http://iowahawk.typepad.com/iowahawk/2008/11/election-analysis-america-can-take-pride-in-this-historic-inspirational-disaster.html
More accurately, they are not confusing, they are confused. The problem is Obama's, not the hearer's.
This is one of the best editorials about O I’ve read yet.
and at least his wife has some class, too.
The first black president was white.
The second black president is half white.
Someday, we may even get a black black president, but thanks to Obama, it will now be a long time a-comin'...but whitey will still get the blame.
if there is gridlock at least they aren’t spending my money or curtailing my rights.
They still will find ways to steel from you during gridlock though.
Joe Biden is a drunk.
Let's talk about the stimulus bill.
There was no time in congress to debate it and amend it, just throw it together and vote!
Then, it was rushed through so fast that the conference committee used Post-It Notes to make changes.
There was no time to read it, just vote!
There was no time to allow the public to view it, just sign it!
Now, we find out about the AIG bonuses (protected in the stimulus) and feign ignorance.
Bottom line: This is sloppy leadership from congress and the White House.

That’s Mike Allen’s assessment of a proposed health-care and carbon-tax jam down via the Budget Resolution, an end-run around the Senate’s 60 vote rule, which has previously only been used for tax code changes impacting the budget, not major policy proposals like an overhaul of health care and cap-and-trade.
The best argument against the jam down is in the dismal results of recent past jam throughs.
Last fall the Congress pushed through the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (”CSPIA”) which is causing the needless destruction of billions of dollars of goods and crippling whole industries.
The stimulus bill itself had numerous screw-ups within it, hidden from view and correction because of the speed with which it was advanced.
The AIG bonuses are a result of carelessness and haste on the part of Team Obama.
Imagine what will happen to your health care or the country’s entire economy if the mad dash methodology is adopted for medicine or cap-and-trade.
The Senate should be in full revolt over the stripping away of its institutional role, and the MSM should be mocking the idea that this was ever a president committed to bipartisanship.
“I’ve now been to 57 states on my campaign”
“When a child with asthma goes into the hospital, they need to give him some treatment, a breathalyzer”
“John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith”
“On this Memorial Day we honor our fallen heroes, and I see many of them in the audience today”
“Penn State right here, Nittaly Lions”
What A F-in joke.
He’s the BOY President......he acts like an immature child.
I would describe his words, with or without teleprompter, as cold and lifeless, like the electronic image of Big Brother.
That’s a keeper!
Please stop insulting toads. They're useful, beneficial animals that eat vermin; The Usurper is vermin.
Thanks for the ping.
