Obama Sinks to New Low

The ball-less wonder does it again – using a public forum to insult an 87 year old former first lady, who shits more class than this scumbucket. And then his worshipping thoughtless hordes praise him:

“Let’s see. Obama makes a joke at the expense of the 87-year old widow?recently released from the hospital with a broken hip?of a beloved former president. Shortly thereafter, Obama is forced to apologize, and is getting pounded at a highly-influential web site. Yet McClellan sees no mistake. What do we deduce?”

All hail the new America, led to the promised land…by scum.

Whoa. I’m no fan of Obama, but thats one hell of a moral pedestal you seem to think you’re perched on.

Here’s what he said:

“In terms of speaking to former presidents, I’ve spoken to all of them that are living, obviously President Clinton–I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any séances.”

The article linked within that one points out that it was actually Hillary clinton that admitted to performing a seance. Obama was probably thinking about the Reagan’s reliance on an astrologer during the time he was president.

So he goofed up, but his message was a dig at superstition. And that’s actually a GOOD attitude to have, by the way.

He’s only ball-less because he actually apologized after the fact.

I thought it sloppy and churlish, but I think MCarthy has it right:

C’mon folks, let’s not be a bunch of mirthless wusses here. Mark Steyn’s cover story for NR’s April 21 edition on Mrs. Obama’s America was laugh out loud stuff, and we all howled over the unintentionally hysterical New Yorker cover that depicted Michelle as a militant. First families and their eccentricities, real or imagined, have never been off-limits. What Obama said, whether you think it was funny or not (I thought it was kinda funny) was not offensive ? it didn’t come close to John McCain’s infamous joke (at a 1998 fundraiser) at Chelsea Clinton’s expense, and I don’t recall too many protests around here about our candidate’s occasional low-brow jape. Let’s not act like a bunch of Lefties just looking to be aggrieved over this or that slight. This is likely to be a tough stretch, and we’ll need to be able to laugh ? at ourselves and at the other side ? to get through it.

Manufacturing outrage at every perceived slight is the job of the Left - we should brush it off and keep our eye on legitimate things to complain about.

This was a great post until you mentioned the “Left”. Come on, man. Didn’t this story just prove that to not be the case? Please.

The whole “Left”, “Right” bullshit doesn’t help anything.

When did the right become such a bunch of humorless, easy to offend, bunch of pussies?

Ughhh…

OK everybody. Let’s be real. The “right” and the “left” have always been a bunch of humorless, easy to offend pussies. We need ot work together on this and stop putting up with it from all sides.

yeah, and all the centrist pussies too.

Come on guys relax he has at least 4 more years. It was one silly comment there will plenty more where that came from.

The lowest scum of T-Nation himself couldn’t smell class if it was shoved up his own ass…

Insulting harmless little old ladies is bad. There is truly no excuse. To use a little old lady, to rip her, in order to save your ass from your own stupidity (Talking to living presidents? Uh, we already ASSUMED that, Barack, you POS.) is a tiny glimmer of this man’s soul.

To be fair, I dont imagine I’d be able to smell anything once it’s been shoved up my ass, either.

Whoa. That’s deep! How can we compete with that?

I know one thing…I may not be able to smell it when it’s up my ass, but I sure as hell will smell it when it comes out !

He was taking a jab at superstition. The fact that the mentality is shared by little old ladies doesn’t make it any better or out of bounds for criticism. Hellooooooooooo
