Comrade Obama Gaffathon

Posted by Van Helsing at October 4, 2009 8:34 PM

Think of the fun the liberal establishment media would have had if W had made this many gaffes:



Future historians will devote entire careers to trying to figure out how this moonbat boob was elected president.

On a tip from J.

IF W....?????

I guess you don't understand the difference between slip-ups and blatant lies. W had his moments of verbal asshattery but Obama is caught lying on a daily basis.

Posted by: Anonymous at October 4, 2009 9:56 PM


Hey morons.

Yeah, you....Ghost of Lost-it and Maxwell's Silver Asshole.

I would love to see the sources for these quotes. My guess is that nearly all of them fall into one of four categories:

1) Taken out of context
2) Modified to make W look worse
3) Inaccurately written down by whomever heard them

or...

4) Pulled out of your ass

Go on. We're waiting.

Posted by: Cylar at October 4, 2009 11:10 PM


I'd be willing to bet that Obama's mere verbal slip ups already are greater than than the unabridged catalog of W slip ups. What is different about W's is that they nearly all are simple slips of the tongue, while Obama, in addition to having massive numbers of verbal slips (especially when he's teleprompter deprived), he also has a massive number of factual errors (read, lies) that are well expressed.

Posted by: Judith M. at October 5, 2009 3:56 AM


if you can't see that Obama is a better speaker and didn't recognize that the last Republican president could not put a grammatically correct sentence together then you are simply an idiot. Again, sorry, but fact is fact.

Bush was a moron. You might not agree with Obama but he is clearly a superior intellect compared to Bush. Again, this an obvious fact to honest intelligent observers, neither of which you will find here.

Posted by: Anonymous at October 5, 2009 4:47 AM


Slip ups Cylar? Bush's entire presidency was one big slip up.

Posted by: wingnutcracker at October 5, 2009 4:49 AM


Every time Obama opens his mouth he confirms once again what we've all (Conservative and Liberal alike, IMO) known since the beginning. Many of the Libs, however, are content to simply line up behind 'their guy', even though he is little more than an empty suit. The remaining Libs actually believe his crap, for a variety of reasons (He's The Messiah, he's the smartest man on the planet, he gives great speech, etc.).

And his lies! The Libs, as a group, all seem to condone his deceitfulness and game-playing to further his self-interests at the expense of our country.

It's getting to the point, for me at least, that when I find out that someone is a Lib I just want to turn around and run.

Obama - the great uniter. Another load of crap.

Yeah, Louie, this country hasn't been so divided since the Civil War.

It used to be that a politician caught in a lie was staring at his own career demise. The lefties let king zero get away with lie after lie on a daily basis. The rest of us see right through him.

I turn around and run, too, Louie. It puzzles me when conservative people refer to their "liberal friends." I don't have any liberal friends, and neither do I want any. Ever.

Posted by: Karin at October 5, 2009 5:06 AM


You got that RIGHT Karin!! Don't have any, Don't want any!

Posted by: TED at October 5, 2009 5:08 AM


Ditto Karin and TED. No room for butthole liberals in my world either. Tolerated a few in the past but not a one remains and has not for years. They either get illuminated or they get eliminated. Real quick.

P.s. W is still President.

Posted by: End the Fed at October 5, 2009 6:33 AM


Ironically, more of these clips may have surfaced and been used in the McCain campaign, were it not for his own McCain-Feingold bill that restricts the use of free-speech in campaigns.

BO may be stupid, phony, arrogant and ignorant, but similarly, if McCain had won, he most likely would have been under the thumb of democrats, thereby assuring republican party defeat for the next 20 years...as BO will do for the democratic party.

Yeah trolls: you've got a real Einstein here.

(I love the 60 states...what a foreigner!)

Posted by: Fiberal at October 5, 2009 7:43 AM


Cylar, they are all sourced place and date. Look them up. I couldn't quite witness any of these personally cause even you had an opposing shirt, or sticker on your car, you were not allowed into these events. Further, it goes to show how badly you guys are stretching these days.

Posted by: ghost of wellstone at October 5, 2009 8:05 AM


Karin

Liberal family? Maybe. Liberal friends, never. Family happens! You choose friends.

Posted by: SnowSnake at October 5, 2009 8:14 AM


My favorite excuses were:

1) Taken out of context
2) Modified to make (name your Democrat) look worse

Isn't that exactly what the right does on a fairly constant basis? Isn't that what Fox does? How about the Nancy Pelosi called us Nazis fantasy that the right moans about?

Here's a couple of amusing, views of that one. First, reality, then a cartoon.

BUT BUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Well of Gallstones at October 5, 2009 8:42 AM


Isn't that what Fox does?

Actually no. Unlike the Jurassic Media, Fox does not distort or manufacture news. Say like Dan Rather of CBS, or CNN's report of firefight in the Potomac.

I have yet to see FOX have to apologize for falsified or distorted reporting, something the Jurassic media specializes in.

In regards to Pelosi, do you you honestly think your making a good case here?

When she states that people are carrying signs with swastikas to Town Hall events, what is she saying?

Posted by: J at October 5, 2009 8:48 AM


"if you can't see that Obama is a better speaker and didn't recognize that the last Republican president could not put a grammatically correct sentence together then you are simply an idiot. Again, sorry, but fact is fact."

LOL! I'm sorry, but does grammatically correct include proper punctuation?

It doesn't surprise me that someone who is too lazy to pick a pseudonym would be unaware of some of the incomprehensible things Obama has said, but there is plenty of available footage if you ever care to open your eyes.

My point remains that without the aid of a teleprompter, Obama is a blithering idiot when talking about policy issues. Sure, he is smooth when he is just BSing, but so is Bush. The bottom line is this, verbal gaffes happen to everyone, especially those who have to talk for a living (it's not that they are worse speakers than everyone else, they just talk more), but making up stories that didn't happen, that's a whole different problem, and that's what Obama does with alarming regularity.

Posted by: Judith M. at October 5, 2009 9:04 AM


J asks: "When she states that people are carrying signs with swastikas to Town Hall events, what is she saying?"

J, she is saying people are carrying signs with swastikas.

Posted by: Lao at October 5, 2009 9:09 AM


The only sign with a swastika on it had a line drawn through it, like a no smoking sign.

Anyway, who said "If a kid has asthma, instead of endless tests, give him a breathalyzer."

Posted by: Karin at October 5, 2009 10:09 AM


J, she is saying people are carrying signs with swastikas.

And who historically have been known to do that, Einstein?

Davey are you referring to "Dust in the Wind"? That was done by Kansas.

Posted by: Farmer Ted at October 5, 2009 11:50 AM


Incredible.

Here you have a collection of clips, a fraction of which would decimate the candidacy of any Republican (Palin), or insure a 4-year media feeding-frenzy (Bush) and yet we see the reflexive left attacking Bush, FOX, and the general right.
The left obliviously goes on with their usual rail of generalities. And this in the context of example after example after example of visual-audio evidence (in living color) of BO's dismaying stupidity.

The level of incompetence of this man is clearly evident in these videos. Its also clear that BO carries himself and speaks differently to predominately black vs mixed audiences. How presidential is that? You drawl in Texas and speak through your nose in New Jersey? What a posturing bag of lies.

Bottom line: It is just inconceivable that any sensible individual could compare the strained articulation of Bush (pilot/national guard/MBA/Active President) to the stumbling displays of ignorance and arrogance owned by BO (no record/Preening President).

This is an unprecedented track record of blundering speeches for any politician, let alone for one actually allowed to soil the oval office as is being done now.

Posted by: Fiberal at October 5, 2009 12:42 PM


Um, not really Pathet Lao. It would seem that you've tried to revise history, yet again. They were the National Socialist German Workers Party, not the National Conservative German Workers Party. You can try to spin that any way you want, but the fact remains, they thought of themselves as Socialists, not Conservatives. Hitler said the only difference between the Marxists and National Socialists was a fatherland, and he had a fatherland.

Posted by: UpNorth at October 5, 2009 12:54 PM


I should have added:

"Bush (governor/businessman/terror fighter/oil man/pilot/national guard/MBA/Active President/Christian) to the stumbling displays of ignorance and arrogance owned by BO (no record---etc./Preening President/obfuscated)".

I could go on but its like comparing a building to a sidewalk.

Posted by: Fiberal at October 5, 2009 1:00 PM


UpNorth at October 5, 2009 12:54 PM

Of course liberals don't read much (as documented by Ann Coulter), but Jonah Goldberg's book, Liberal Fascism is an extremely well-researched set of analyses that unequivocally ties liberalism to socialism and its consequent fascism.

It may be useful to...oh wait, they don't use fact-based evidence either do they?

Posted by: Fiberal at October 5, 2009 1:15 PM


I don't have a single problem with the signs that Lao linked to. These people do not want to repeat history, and they are being vigilant of it. People see those chanting, zombified children and think "Nazi Youth." It was real, it happened, and we don't want it here, period.

Posted by: Karin at October 5, 2009 1:57 PM


Yes, those three (!) signs are obviously not people who are in favor of naziism at all, but rather simply comparing maximum leader zero's policies to national socialist ones. You don't like the one with a swastika replacing the O? How about the one with the hammer and sickle replacing the O? Should that symbol be any less disgusting to you than the other, as far as political philosophy is concerned? Compare and contrast.

Posted by: Mr Evilwrench at October 5, 2009 2:14 PM


Pelosi didn't call the right nazis, she mentioned the signs. It is the right that is calling Obama and the Democrats nazis.

I noticed that a recent Moonbattery thread featured a photo of an anti-Obama billboard and on that billboard was a hammer and sickle.

Following the logic employed by some on the right, obviously, because I have mentioned noticing the symbol, you believe I think Moonbattery is run by Communists.

Fiberal beats his chest: "The level of incompetence of this man is clearly evident in these videos."

(Yawn!)

Would you have noticed some of these gaffs if there were no canned laughter and a printed explanation?

UpNorth notices that the Nazis "thought of themselves as Socialists".

That's nice.

Do Obama and the Democrats THINK OF THEMSELVES as Socialists?

No they don't, the right provides that thought for them.

Fiberal relies on Ann Coulter and Jonah Goldberg to give him some talking points. As revisionists of actual history, they are both pretty good but of course you believe they provide "fact-based evidence".

Speaking of "fact-based evidence", did you know that in Germany after the first war there was a leftist party called the German Social Democrat Party? Did you know that as a minority party in the government in March 1933 they voted against the Enabling Act which gave Hitler and his Nazi majority, dictatorial powers? Did you know that in June 1933, the Nazis banned the GSD and sent most of its' leaders to concentration camps?

The nazis jailed the liberals. Sorry if that contradicts your theories.

"Bush was a moron. You might not agree with Obama but he is clearly a superior intellect compared to Bush. Again, this an obvious fact to honest intelligent observers, neither of which you will find here."

Could someone, please, give one--just one--example of Obama's "intellect"? Where is it? In his ghost-written books? In the Senate votes in which he courageously voted "present"? In his snap and apparently racially based judgments about police officers he's never met? The repetition of the assertion of the president's towering intellect seems to me to be the big lie--say it often enough and is must be true.

Posted by: Anonymous at October 5, 2009 4:47 AM

We are rapidly approaching an era where intelligence is measured only by how closely someone aligns with our own political preferences...and worrying about the genius of enemies or the incompetence of allies is a thing of the past.

Personally, I can't stand Obama. But I would never question his intelligence simply because I disagree with him. Rather, I question his patriotism, his morals, his judgement, his character, his priorities, and the company he keeps.

You know what I found the funniest about people who went around saying "Bush is a moron?" That he kept beating them regardless - two presidential elections and numerous policy victories over the domestic opposition. The Democrats kept prattling on about what an idiot he was supposed to be, yet he kept beating them.

Yeah, I'm talking to you, moonbat. Bush was a "moron", yet he kicked your guys' asses again and again. What does that say about THEM (and by extension, you)?

Posted by: Cylar at October 6, 2009 12:04 AM

In other words, they're all pulled out of your ass. You give dates, but not places, context, where published, or anything else. I wouldn't doubt that a good number were said by someone else and falsely attributed to Bush. It's not like that's the first time in history such a thing has happened.

Thank you, by the way, for conceding the argument.

Posted by: Cylar at October 6, 2009 12:07 AM


Oh, my mistake. Bush was in "Washington, DC" when he said this or that. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that where he spent most of his time? Where in DC was he, standing on top of the Lincoln Memorial?

Posted by: Cylar at October 6, 2009 12:08 AM


"if you can't see that Obama is a better speaker and didn't recognize that the last Republican president could not put a grammatically correct sentence together then you are simply an idiot. Again, sorry, but fact is fact."

First off, it's not 'fact', it's opinion. They covered this in my 6th-grade English class. Were you sick that day?

Second, you're really expecting anyone to continue to laugh at Bush's speaking ability as compared with "Uh Erm Ehh Dear Reader?" If you want to say that Clinton was a better public speaker than Bush, fine. It was the one thing he did well while in office.

Third, I don't rate "public speaking" with either intelligence or with the judgment required to be an effective leader. Charisma is WAY down the list. I'd rather have someone who was willing to lead on principle even when it wasn't popular, act decisively, and not look back.

In other worse, I'd rather have Bush back, thankyouverymuch.

Posted by: Cylar at October 6, 2009 12:13 AM


In recent history - your side.
Posted by: Lao at October 5, 2009 10:57 AM

What "side" would that be? Conservatives? You've got to be kidding me.

I've never understood this notion that a political philosophy founded on individual rights & smaller government...is somehow the functional equivalent of one that proposes government by dictatorship and herds the opposition into camps to be disposed of.

Fascism and Naziism are on the Left. Always have been. You moonbats throw those terms around without any clue of what they mean.

Posted by: Cylar at October 6, 2009 12:18 AM


Cylar, you really do need to read more carefully.

If you go back to my statement you will see that while I noted conservatives carrying swastikas as part of their protest I never said that meant they were nazis. Pelosi also noticed the signs. The RIGHT then claimed that meant she was calling them nazis. No, it meant she noticed the signs.

By noticing the signs we understand that the right is making the political comparison of our side, or our politicians, to nazis.

Your final line confirms this, and, why am I not surprised, parrots Jonah Goldberg's absurd revisionist thesis.

Posted by: Lao at October 6, 2009 6:15 AM


Cylar, when the right holds up swastikas we understand they are comparing the policies of the left to nazis.

Posted by: Lao at October 6, 2009 6:45 AM


Oops, sorry for the redundancy...I thought my first post didn't go through.

Posted by: Lao at October 6, 2009 6:46 AM


Lao,
You keep posting about "revisionist" history.
I'll ask you again, are you going to give an example of Goldberg's or Coulter's revisionist history, or are you simply going to recite "revisionist history" over and over again?
If you can't back up your assertion, then try this: What is it about the left that is so chronically resistant to accurately referencing claims?

Here's a hint: You can't do that when lying.

Posted by: Fiberal at October 6, 2009 7:07 AM


Fiberal, sorry to shatter your cherished beliefs but Goldberg himself calls his book revisionist history.

Here's an interview. The first question is "What's the book about?"

The first sentence of his answer: "It's revisionist history".
