Obama's Red Sox Joke Booed in Boston
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | June 26, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 06/26/2012 5:46:34 PM PDT by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: There's an Obama fundraiser event in Boston and taxpayers are having to cover security for that, or in Massachusetts somewhere. Obama went up there for his fundraiser in Boston, made some joke about the Red Sox trading Kevin Youkilis to the White Sox. He got booed in Boston, couldn't understand it. He's such a "man of the people." He had no idea how seriously Bostonians take the Red Sox. They weren't crazy about the trade. There's Obama, so-called White Sox fan, and they've seen Obama throw first pitches. They know they're looking at a freakin' girl throw a baseball when Obama tries it. Here he is making a joke about it and they booed him. You don't boo a narcissist like this.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: By the way, here's Obama getting booed in Boston over that joke. He had a fundraiser here last night in Boston. And he's talking about the trade of third baseman Kevin Youkilis from the Red Sox to the White Sox.

Obama mocks Boston Red Sox for trading Youkilis to White Sox

OBAMA: I just want to say, uhhh, "Thank you for Youkilis."

BOSTONIANS: (groans and boos)

OBAMA: Ummm..,.

BOSTONIANS: (boos)

OBAMA: I'm just saying, he's gonna have change the color of his socks.

BOSTONIANS: (boos mixed with laughter)

OBAMA: Ha-ha-ha-ha!

BOSTONIANS: (boos)

OBAMA: I didn't think I'd get any boos outta here, but...

BOSTONIANS: (laughter)

OBAMA: I guess I shouldn'ta --

BOSTONIANS: (boos)

OBAMA: I should not have brought up baseball!

BOSTONIANS: (boos)

OBAMA: I understand!

BOSTONIANS: (boos)

OBAMA: My mistake!

RUSH: Even in Massachusetts, they choose the Red Sox over Obama. Over Kardashian.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Obama had better not go off teleprompter. Those were real boos out there, and he's not able to take that. You don't boo a narcissist. You don't. He doesn't get booed. He doesn't understand it. It doesn't compute.

I think the official word from the White House is that these were not boos, the event went very well, and Boston loved his witty comment about Youkilis. Not only that, but in his last golf game, Obama got 18 holes-in-one.

Didn’t sound like he was getting razzed too badly.

Too bad

Try it with headphones. He got a lot of boos considering it was an event with his supporters.

It wasn’t, “Boo!, Boo!, Boo!”, it was, “Youk! Youk! Youk!” /s

None of you actually believe this was a serious and malicious boos do you? I certainly hope Rush wasn’t stupid enough to believe that.

It was a joke, a playful booing. Those people will all vote for him come November.

No, they won’t. Many will, but not “all”.

And those weren’t all playful boos, either.

And to be fair, nearly any politician gets booed at the games, state, local, Fed, right or left...and sometimes it IS playful booing. But not in this case, from what I heard from some people who were there.

Support for Obama is not as monolithic up here as many think. Liberals just control all the electoral machinery and the media up here.

Even “The Won” can’t get away with dissing the Red Sox in Boston.
