Washingtonians Get "Wee-Weed Up"? (Mr. Obama's comments yesterday)
MSNBC ^ | August 21, 2009 | Patrick Gavin

Posted on 08/21/2009 10:56:41 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Just as soon as President Barack Obama uttered the words Thursday afternoon, the reaction was nearly universal.

On Twitter, The Hill's Sam Youngman asked: "WTF does wee-weed up mean and how do you spell it?"

Real Clear Politics' Mike Memoli: "I don't know what that means."

The Associated Press' Phil Elliott: "Did the president just say Washington gets all "wee-wee-ed up" in August? Really?"

FOX News' Greta van Susteren would later say, "I don't know what that means."

What had happened? During Obama's remarks at a national health care forum, Obama said: "There's something about August going into September where everybody in Washington gets all wee-weed up. I don't know what it is. But that's what happens."

Next up were the jokes.

"When will birthers start saying that 'wee-weed up' is an old Kenyan Muslim saying?" wrote The Hill's Youngman on Twitter.

"Wondering if media elite latte consumption correlates to 'wee-weed up' factor?" tweeted Bloomberg's Lizzie O'Leary. "So am I wee-weed up? I thought it was just allergies."

The Weekly Standard's Mary Katharine Ham chimed in: "My little brothers often weeweed up the pool in August." And: "Yes, wee-wee, the sneakiest fear-monger. Tinkle, the silent consensus-killer."

AP's Elliott: "He's probably talking about urologists, who are famous for taking excessive urine samples for extra profit. So 'wee-wee-ed up.'"

Michelle Malkin blogged: "Is this some Chicago phrase I don't know about?"

Before you knew it, the term "wee weed" was a trending topic on Twitter, it had it's own Twitter handle (@weeweed) and its own domain name — www.weeweed.com.(continued)

The problem here is that the phrase doesn’t translate well from its original Kenyan.....

I think it’s another term for people wetting themselves.

Either in positive anticipation or negative fearfulness.

When under severe stress people often revert to their childhood to escape. The most extreme example of that was Michael Jackson. I think Obama is doing just that, he is in way over his head. Look for him to soon start playing with tinkertoys and having Michelle change his diapers.

God help us.

President Carter must be floating on air, while Presidents Nixon, Harding and Buchanan are smiling somewhere.

“I think it’s another term for people wetting themselves.”

That would describe the reaction in the offices of heads of state all around the world when they are told of those comments by the (person pretending to be) president of the United States. Laughter so intense they wee-wee on themselves.

I dread returning to Russia next month, it was gonna be bad enough anyway...now I will have to put up with the wee-wee jokes.

Unpresidential is an understatement. Have you see the entourage he travels with? He has more relatives than a Morman.

"When will birthers start saying that 'wee-weed up' is an old Kenyan Muslim saying?" wrote The Hill's Youngman on Twitter.

Yet somehow the Washington Post going to town on George Allen's "macaca moment" was a triumph of the free press, and the libtard-o-sphere turning over every leaf to find a language, any language, that had a word that sounded like "macaca" that could be interpreted as having racial overtones was citizen journalism at its finest, huh...

It’s code to tell his “YES WEE CAN” supporters to double their efforts in forcing his agenda down our throats:

Could he have used a family term for “p-d off” or “p-ing themselves?” Like the time Michelle said he was “all stinky and snorey” in the morning?

How precious!

I exposed a racist troll the other day and he wrote in a thread for me to go piss up a rope and not cross reference his racist posts. I was gonna ask it to explain what that means but it got zotted.

This spectacle is what we get when a faux intellectual almost black man is embraced instead of appreciating real intellectual black men like Clarence Thomas and Thomas Sowell! How sick that intellectual men like Thomas and Sowell are branded ‘uncle toms’ by the black leadership working to keep black people subservient to the democrat elite, rathert han encourage black youth to aspire to excellence. Intelligent, hard working, successful black women like Janice Rogers Brown and Condi Rice are cursed by black leadership, and idiots like Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackon Lee are idolized!

The Republicans need to get on this, making up racist meanings for Obama's words like the Democrat media did to Republican George Allen when he called that protester some made-up word.
