PBO's 'My Pet Goat' Moment

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at November 5, 2009 5:09 PM

Watch as PBO gives a "shout out" to a friend in the audience, then glibly yammers on about some conference, and then... finally ... acknowledges the Fort Hood shooting.

I just don't like this guy. I mean, this is how he treats a somber moment like this? With a "shout-out" to some guy in the audience. I can hear the trolls now, "How dare you politicize this tragic moment, you racist hater." I don't give a damn. I think his glib manner was totally inappropriate.


Comments

What a classless jerk. I'm sorry, but he should have stopped EVERYTHING to reassure the country, not done it this way. However, the Ministry of Information has kindly clipped out the beginning part and is only sending out his comments about the shootings to the masses don't see what a tool PBO really is.

BHO is nothing a bong-hitting, coke snorting, antri-American, Marxist, polished turd who made it into the White House because he is 'black'.

Not because he has any skills or talent other than admiring himself in a mirror and reading off a teleprompter well.

Come on 2012!

Screw you, Zero! Socialist health care debacle ad comes first??? What a dickhead!

Soldiers were just murdered on their own soil, jackass! Shove the partisan shit up your ass, and address that issue first and foremost!

Are you just that clueless, or worse yet, callous???

His true colors are shining through again! Pardon my language but I am pissed off!!! Hell, anybody but a moonbat should be pissed off at this jerk!!!

And how is it that this dood still has relatively high 'likability' ratings? Perhaps they used some nanotechnology in the Obama Kool-Aid, little robots that grab on to the nucleus accumbens (or, some would argue, the septum pellucidium) and just won't let go. Then, whenever The One speaks, code words and intonations he uses stimulate these brain pleasure centers and - voila.

The key frequencies for doubleplusgood enjoyment are probably embedded in that inane stuttering when he's off the teleprompter.

"yammers on about some conference"

That would be the all-day event at the Department of the Interior where the President was meeting with the leaders of 564 different tribes to discuss Native American affairs. He was scheduled to deliver the opening and closing remarks at the conference.

Posted by: Lao at November 5, 2009 6:23 PM


So he was, Lao. So he was.

But the flippant manner in which he opened the press conference -- which seemed to have been called exclusively for the shooting if I'm reading this right, and should have been if it wasn't -- is reproachful.

What would America, left and right, have said if W had come out to speak after 9/11 and yucked it up with the audience, before getting down to discussing the tragedy?

Tragic event. Insensitive reaction. He is THE CINC, for Christ's sake.

Posted by: The MaryHunter at November 5, 2009 6:31 PM


That's right, he was speaking to the horribly oppressed and historically wronged Native Americans. the "1st Americans". How can you expect him to respect the boys in green when he has some major ass suckin and apologizin to do? Cmon folks!

Posted by: Contrarian_Libertarian at November 5, 2009 6:35 PM


Ok, the video above is, in fact, Obama's closing statement to the White House Tribal Nations Conference.

At about 1:44 he explains how he planned to make broader remarks regarding the conference. He then begins talking about the Fort Hood shootings.

Posted by: Lao at November 5, 2009 6:59 PM


I'm gonna dedicate my next shit to Obama.

Posted by: Navigator at November 5, 2009 7:03 PM


The only way to stop this senseless shooting by our soldiers is to pass a law that disarms all of our military. This would never had happened if we had disarmed all the troops.

This reminds me of Clinton laughing at the D-Dayceremonies, seeing the camera and starting to cry and wipe his eyes.

BHO is no where near the level of Clinton on used car salesman schtick.

Posted by: jukin at November 5, 2009 7:24 PM


Hmm, how are these statist punks going to twist this into disarming the citizens of this nation, given it was a military officer that went off? We shall see.

Posted by: Mr Evilwrench at November 5, 2009 7:42 PM


Notice how the MSM is toning down the shooter's name and background? Just because he's "Muhammad Abdullah Abdul Mohammed Abdillah McGillah Gorillah" doesn't mean there's ANY connection to the peaceful religion of ISLAM, does it?

I mean, the "religion of Peace" is known for being very peaceful... once they've cut the heads off of anyone who opposes them.

In a case of fratricide, I think he should be staked out on the parade ground at the post, and any trooper there should be allowed to have a go.... razor blades and rock-salt come to mind....

Please don't let reality get in the way of your beliefs Hiram. Take a look at memorandum and you will see this is being fully reported everywhere.

Posted by: Lao at November 5, 2009 8:29 PM


I cut Obama some slack on this, and for many of the same reasons I blew off Red criticism of Bush re 9/11, for these reasons:

First, we don't know what exactly he was told.

Second, it doesn't become a President of the United States to drop a steamy load in his shorts.

Third, people take their cue from the President. He should, if anything, underreact while waiting for the facts. (Note: this is exactly what Obama should have done re "Skip" Gates.)

Fourth, he's human. He needs time to figure out what he thinks. Until he knows what's happened, and what he thinks about it, I can't fault him for sticking to the script.

So For these reasons, I've got to cut Obama some slack.

I was watching live as Fox covered the tragic shooting of our military as the TOTUS came on. I thought he might say something that he'd be uncomfortable with, like patriotism. He was playing around with the crowd!
I thought "no", he hasn't heard about the shooting yet, no one would react this stupidly. He went on giving a shout out to his peeps, then turned to the mass murders of our hero's.
I mean WTF??!! Is he just a shitball? This glib eaction was the next assault on America.

I was on my way to visit a client and heard it on Hannity when the Liar In Chief spoke....

"I wanna give a shout out to..."

OMFG!!!!

Does this brainless communist think he's in a rap video?

As a sidebar: For ALL of you communist retards who worship Odumbo you spent eight years calling Bush "stupid" and far worse for his habit of mispronouncing words.

What do you have to say about Odumbo trying to play retarded ghetto gangster instead of acting like a PRESIDENT or even an ADULT who is representing or should I say "repruzentun" the United States.

Odumbo is a disgraceful and complete fool!!

I'm waiting for the day that the teleprompter-in-chief comes on the television and says, "This has all been a joke. I'm not really your president". Please God deliver us from this horrible person.

This is a "sad day" for the religion of pieces indeed. After the wacko went on his fatwah he wasn't allowed to become a martyr, he won't get his 666 virgins in hell. Maybe when he gets off the ventilator they can send him to Fort Leavenworth to be ruthlessly beaten. I just hope they can all get rooted out by the time I go active duty.

Posted by: Navy Med Student at November 6, 2009 12:40 AM


The idea of unhinged lunatics like this (who had little if any fidelity to the US or its Armed Forces to start with) around heavy weaponry, is frightening indeed.

The grief of the families of the service people killed, must be beyond bitter. How they must feel that their loved ones died for nothing at all - cut down by a madman on their own soil.

Give it time, Mr. Right, give it time.....

I'm sure the MSM will come up with some sort of pseudointellectual psychobabble nonsense about the 'military culture of violence' or some such - or they'll just "Blame Bush" through some twisted Loopy Loony Letterman Loving Lizard-Like Lying Low Life Liberal Lobotomized Lemming Like Lack of Liberal Logic.

Or they will trot out "Talk Radio" and "Hate Speech" and "Rush and Beck and Hannity".....yeah, that's it!

Posted by: TonyD95B at November 6, 2009 3:11 AM


Clueless and classless. What is wrong with this man? After a flippant intro to his speech he addresses the tragedy at the 2:25 mark. Unbelievable. The grieving families deserve better. In contrast I am reminded of Reagan's Challenger memorial where he said these stirring words about the astronauts, "They have escaped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God".

Posted by: austin tx personal trainer at November 6, 2009 6:58 AM


Typical behavior from the Narcissist in da Hood! Deep down, he's an America-hating Muslim radical who despises the military and everything it stands for ("I will not wear THAT PIN!"). You KNOW his BFF Bill Ayers and Hussein had a celebratory bonghit before this little speech. CINC in title only - he has no character and no class.
Better watch the video, spread the word about this disgrace by Hussein before it goes down the memory hole.

The President was at the Department of the Interior where he was hosting 564 tribal leaders at the White House Tribal Nations Conference.

He was scheduled to give the opening and closing remarks at the conference. Behind him in the video you can see a flag or banner with a tribal nations buffalo on it.

What the video shows is the President going to the podium to give the closing remarks at that conference where the media was already set up to record.

At about 1:44 he explains how he planned to make broader remarks regarding the conference. He then begins talking about the Fort Hood shootings.

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 8:27 AM


Thanks for some honest assessment Jay.

You're welcome. Too bad liberals couldn't muster the same honesty re Bush and 9/11.

Honesty re Bush and 9/11??

You'll have to explain some more then I'll see what I can do.

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 10:29 AM


I'm talking about eight years of nasty "My Pet Goat" references from everyone to the left of Ronald Reagan. Hell, even my moonbat neighbor went off on a rant about it. It was a staple of the left throughout the Bush Presidency. Michael Moore, Rosie O'Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg ring a bell?

Surely you remember that? If not, I'll dig up a few pages of links for you.

What a jerk. You mean to tell me that this guy took 3 minutes of his speech to give a 'shout out'. Didn't these media jerks give Bush hell when he was given the news about 9/11 it took him 1/18 of second to react to the news. BO is a class action jerk that has no respect for the uniform.

My son will graduate from Ft. Benning next week and will serve under this dipweed.

Posted by: Theresa at November 6, 2009 11:19 AM


It's interesting, for starters, that Yardale seems to think Bush deserved what he got by using "My Pet Goat" as a pejorative.

Media were reporting the first plane crash before Bush even got to the school. At that time, it was thought to be an accident.

The "My Pet Goat" video didn't surface until much later.

My own feeling? Bush, when told that America was under attack while reading with the kids, could have calmly excused himself, explaining he had urgent business to attend to, and left the room. Instead, he sat there as the video makes clear.

How do you interpret that response or lack thereof?

I remember on 9/11, we had been told that Bush was in the air, somewhere. Hours went by. Rumors were crazy. Nobody knew what was happening or where the President was. I remember thinking, late in the afternoon, "Come on Bush, get it together, say SOMETHING!"

Eventually he did, on Tuesday evening. My complaint with Bush on that day is that he waited far too long to speak to the nation.

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 11:21 AM


Actually it was "The Pet Goat" Here's the video.

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 11:21 AM

Are you that clueless??? I remember screaming at the idiots on the radio and TV who kept asking, "Where's the President? Why can't we know where the President is?" --- Hey, morons, if they made it known where the President was, then the terrorists would know where he was also! I DID NOT WANT TO KNOW WHERE THE PRESIDENT WAS, AND NO ONE WITH A BRAIN SHOULD HAVE WANTED THAT INFORMATION MADE PUBLIC!!!

Doesn't anyone remember that in the confusion that followed the initial attacks that day, no one knew what was coming next? No one knew how many more planes they had control of or if there was some other phase of their operation that had not yet been unleashed! We were all waiting for the next shoe to drop!!!

The President's whereabouts weren't made public all day for security reasons, you idiot! And I will guarantee you that he wasn't the one that made that call --- the Secret Service did, and in circumstances where they have reason to believe the President's life may be in jeopardy, they take control of him and any information released to the public about him! I can pretty effectively guarantee you that he was forced to put himself into their hands until such a time that it was determined that the threat has been neutralized!

Most likely, the President was being kept in the air, mobile, out of reach of any potential attacks and out of touch with the media that day (though kept well informed of what was happening, they would have seen to that) until the extent of threat was known! As soon as it was determined that it was safe to allow him to address the nation, he did so!

To suggest otherwise, is to show what an ignorant bunch of asses you folks on the left fringe really are! Get over yourselves!!!

Posted by: Mr. Right at November 6, 2009 11:46 AM


I never said I thought the President's whereabouts should be known. I said he waited too long to talk to the nation. He could have done it from an undisclosed location.

But if security re the President was such a big deal, even more bizarre, how come he sat in a school full of kids for so long, while the attacks were unfolding?

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 11:51 AM


C'mon, Lao, deliberalize and honest up.

What the media or weren't reporting is irrelevant. Bush obviously didn't know about 9/11 until some aide leaned over and whispered something to him. Neither of us knows what he was told. It could perfectly well have been "Plane crashed into WTC, possibly a terrorist attack. We're investigating now and will get back to you asap."

Bush didn't have urgent business to attend to. It was out of his hands at that moment. What did you think he was going to do, man an AA gun?

Flying around the country was extremely sensible at that juncture, and probably insisted upon by the Secret Service. Once it was clear there was a widespread conspiracy (no, not the Reds this time, the Muslims), the worst thing to do is stay put where people expect you to be. A road trip makes their task difficult to impossible. His job then was to stay alive, and keep the government intact. He did exactly the right thing.

Have enough honesty to admit that. Sheesh.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 11:57 AM


Media reports indicate that Andrew Card said to Bush: "A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack".

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 12:03 PM


What Mr. Right said. He posted while I was typing.

But if security re the President was such a big deal, even more bizarre, how come he sat in a school full of kids for so long, while the attacks were unfolding?

C'mon, you're not a stupid guy, so I'll just presume you're having an off day. Obviously the Secret Service didn't think the President's security was an issue at that time, or they would have hustled his ass out pronto, kids or no kids. Look at how the Secret Service reacted when that stupid bitch shot at Reagan. When they think the President is threatened, they don't stand around like a bunch of liberals in a bathhouse.

So the obvious answer to your point is that at that point no one realized it was a big deal.

Now...imagine if Bush had joked with the kids, and given a big "shout out" to someone. That would be a comparable situation.

To reiterate, I don't fault Obama for his remarks. They were maladroit, and his tone was totally inappropriate, but he's human, and grass green in this (or any other) job. I think Bush handled the situation perfectly – exactly as I would hope I would have done. The first thing you learn as an executive is to stop and think before you react, since everyone will be hanging on your every word, and once said, you can't take anything back. That's what Bush did.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 12:07 PM


Look at "The Pet Goat" video. At the end Bush does joke with the kids.

Posted by: DINO at November 6, 2009 12:22 PM


DINO, get lost.

The situations with Bush and Obama are not analogous. If Obama's chief of staff had walked up to Obama, on camera, to mention the Fort Hood tragedy, even that would not have been close.

I have no problem conceding that Obama's media people might have managed his announcement better but, other than scheduling two completely separate media scrums, with their attendant time delay, I wonder how?

Should he have skipped presenting his scheduled conference remarks completely? The media were there, set up and waiting.

If Obama had presented his scheduled conference remarks and NOT mentioned Fort Hood, people would have been on his case.

If Obama had somberly addressed the Fort Hood tragedy first, then what? After saying that could he have then switched to "hey great conference" mode without getting the same complaints?

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 12:28 PM


The situations with Bush and Obama are not analogous. If Obama's chief of staff had walked up to Obama, on camera, to mention the Fort Hood tragedy, even that would not have been close.

You're right, but the comparison disfavors Obama, by a lot. He obviously knew about Fort Hood before he even began speaking. He had time to compose himself, and think through what he would say. Bush was caught flat-footed, informed on camera.

Here's what Obama should have said. I'll type it out verbatim.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman, for the invitation to speak at this important event, one so symbolic of our values as a nation. I had intended to speak on [how great I am, and how we have to work for communism, i.e., the usual], but I've just been informed of a terrible tragedy at Fort Hood in Texas that has struck down a number of our fine service men and women. All of our day to day concerns and burdens dwindle into insignificance in the light of such news, and consequently I'd like to address my remarks instead to the spirit of sacrifice exemplified by these fine young people who are prepared to risk their lives to defend our country from its enemies, and to tell them how much we as a nation, and as individuals, appreciate their valor, their spirit, and their sacrifice on our behalf.

Now please join me in observing a minute of silence for those heroes lost today.

That's what he should have said.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 12:55 PM


In other words, nothing about "shout outs" to his homies, no shucking and jiving, no yukking it up, no talk of "wee-weed" up situations. He should have been, in a word, Presidential.

As if!

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 12:59 PM


Jay for President.

Sounds good.

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 1:00 PM


If Obama had trouble mustering the right demeanor, he should have just pretended that someone shot up an ACORN or SEIU office, or maybe an SF bathhouse. Then he could have been appropriately somber. As it was, just Americans got killed, so no biggie. What's for lunch? /Obama

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 1:01 PM


Ooops I take it back. That next comment doesn't sound Presidential at all.

Were there "homies" at the conference? Was there "shucking and jiving"? Was there "yukking it up"? Was there "talk of wee-weed up situations"?

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 1:03 PM


No, of course not. We can thank God for small mercies on that score. There was "yukking it up," and there was a "shout out" to somebody, but the rest was hyperbole.

The point is that Obama is about as Presidential as Pee Wee Herman.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 1:06 PM


Jay, if you can honestly believe the President thinks it's "no biggie" that Americans got killed, you've lost it completely. Sad to see.

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 1:06 PM


Look at his reaction. It's obvious it wasn't that big a deal to him. He was lighthearted and jocular in demeanor at the beginning of his comments - and he already knew about Fort Hood at that time.

The conclusion is inescapable. It had little or no impact on him.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 1:10 PM


On re-watching the clip, Obama didn't do as badly as I'd initially thought. If he'd lopped off the first two minutes of bullshit, and definitely 86ed the "shout out," I'd defend him for the rest of his remarks.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 1:15 PM


Bear in mind too what we don't see in that clip. He walked up to a podium to stand in front of a room full of at least 564 invited tribal nations guests. They had been in attendance at that conference all day and, as their response to his encouraging words indicates, were looking for a sign of continued support from the President.

Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 2:14 PM


My mom had this to say. I couldn't say it any better:

First of all, this address is no comparison to the Michael Moore "My Pet Goat" smear. There was no scheduled press conference during Bush's elementary school visit. The video came from the school event. The American people had not been notified of the terrorist attack. Bush, himself, just notified in the middle of the story, was awaiting word because it was in progress. That he put on his calm face and continued with the story was evidence of strength. Again, he "continued"; he didn't start a new book and demonstrate that he had little concern. Procedures were being implemented; Preparations were being made for his departure. What would have been a more appropriate response? No, this appearance/press conference was not Obama's My Pet Goat moment. Obama actually blew this one.

With that said, Obama has no sense of proportion. He seemed incapable of prioritizing the two events. He said that he had planned to say more to the audience, but that he needed to address the tragic shootings. Anyone with a brain would have addressed the "tragic shooting" first. But it's not just his priorities that are hosed; it's his entire demeanor. He seems awkward and incapable of expressing genuine compassion and/or anger. Maybe if the video was Obama addressing Zelaya being removed from Honduran office, we would have seen some genuine concern. I don't think he can conjure up the appropriate response because it doesn't compute and it's not in his heart. One Big A** Mistake America.

Posted by: ToreyDawn at November 6, 2009 2:43 PM


"The American people had not been notified of the terrorist attack."

Come again?? The American people were watching it unfold live on TV. The American people knew far more than Bush did at that time.

Seriously? That's the lamest excuse I've ever heard. Priorities. Fuck the Indians, how ever many there were, and how ever long they'd been waiting. Some things are more important than others. Grownups recognize that.

Is it so hard to muster the intellectual honesty to say the Messiah handled this poorly? Because he did.

Put it this way. Suppose someone had shot up a bathhouse, and killed a bunch of fags. Obama sticks to the script, kisses the Indians' asses (hey, there were 564 of 'em! And they'd been a waiting a really long time!), gives a shout out to somebody, and then...oh yeah, brings up the bathhouse shooting. Appropriate?

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 2:58 PM


The American people were watching it unfold live on TV. The American people knew far more than Bush did at that time.

Wow, you're really under-doing yourself today. You just finished arguing that rumors were flying, and Bush should have gone on TV to dispel them, and now you're arguing that the American people knew more than Bush did, because they were watching TV while he was working.

Which is it?

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 3:00 PM


It comes down to this: the Messiah's intellectual and/or emotional limitations come out whenever he can't use the teleprompter binky. He's the Reds' answer to Milli Vanilli: a mannequin who recites what he's told to recite. God help us if he has to think on his feet, because then we get the 58 states or American troops liberating Polish concentration camps blunders.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at November 6, 2009 3:05 PM


I have already said the situation could have been handled better. I already said I liked your response as a possible alternative.

Situations seen through a video lens are not so cut and dried as they seem compared to the big picture that's all.

How did you like what Obama said about the Fort Hood tragedy this morning?


Posted by: Lao at November 6, 2009 3:09 PM


Jay, you really are jumping to false conclusions.

While the American people were watching the second plane hit the tower, Bush was sitting in that classroom. Bush was then told about it by Card. Then Bush sat there. Meanwhile those in front of their TV's knew more than Bush.

When I was talking about rumors flying I meant hours later, after all the planes were down and Bush was already in the air somewhere. The attacks were done by mid morning. Bush addressed the nation at 8:00 that night. In my opinion, he waited too long.

By the way, if you are going to go on and on about speech blunders, how about John Boehner at the tea party rally yesterday?

"This is my copy of the Constitution. And I'm going to stand here with our founding fathers who wrote in the preamble, "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

People get up in front of a crowd and their words get away from them. It's happened to me, and I expect it's happened to you.

And I'm going to stand here with our founding fathers who wrote in the preamble, "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Lao, check your copy of the "Constitution"... I think you've gotten it mixed up with the Declaration of Indepence!

To clarify, this is the Declaration of Indepence.

This is the Constitution.

While you are brushing up, please note the lack of the terms "abortion"; "separation of church and state"; and "health care" in the latter, by the way.

I was QUOTING what John Boehner said to the tea party rally in Washington yesterday.

Irrelevant. I say again:

Stick to the topic, the Teleprompter Jesus's performance.

If Boehner said that, he's a bigger idiot than I already thought!

Boehner

Boehner said it all right.

No need to belabor this further, as I said above and to try to please Jay and bring the thread back to topic: "People get up in front of a crowd and their words get away from them. It's happened to me, and I expect it's happened to you."
