Dear Obama voters,
I would like to take a moment of your time to discuss tomorrow’s election. I’m sure you’re busy on your Obamaphones dodging calls from creditors, eating a taxpayer funded meal, and playing your new Xbox, but please try to pay attention.
I’m not going to bore you with details of murdered Americans by the Fast and Furious (not the movie) program, or Benghazi (that’s a place in Libya. Libya is a country in Africa. Africa is a continent. One of seven.), that’s asking far too much comprehension.
What I would like to talk to you about is the buffoonery (embarrassing stuff) of the last four years, the lighter side of “The One”, if you will.
“When I meet with world leaders, what’s striking — whether it’s in Europe or here in Asia…” -mistakenly referring to Hawaii as Asia while holding a press conference outside Honolulu, Nov. 16, 2011 (it’s not)
“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad.” —Cincinnati, OH, Sept. 22, 2011 (that means between two or more continents)
“We’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.” —on Wall Street reform, Quincy, Ill., April 29, 2010 (I’m sure you don’t see this one as a gaffe. Never mind)
“One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world — Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard.” –mispronouncing “Corpsman” (the “ps” is silent) during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman’s name is also Christopher, not Christian)
“The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.” –Tampa, Fla., Jan. 28, 2010 (What?)
“UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.” –clumsily attempting to make the case for government-run healthcare, while at the same time undercutting his own argument, Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 11, 2009 (This one is not a gaffe, this is a random act of honesty)
“The Cambridge police acted stupidly.” —commenting on a white police officer’s arrest of black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. at his home in Cambridge, Mass., at a news conference, July 22, 2009 (After saying he had no idea what happened)
“The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.” –in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers, Washington, D.C., July 20, 2009 (Again, random act of honesty)
“It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There’s a lot of — I don’t know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing.” –confusing German for “Austrian,” a language which does not exist, Strasbourg, France, April 6, 2009 (Smartest President evah)
“No, no. I have been practicing…I bowled a 129. It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something.” –making an off-hand joke during an appearance on “The Tonight Show”, March 19, 2009 (Obama later called the head of the Special Olympics to apologize)
“I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any séances.” –after saying he had spoken with all the living presidents as he prepared to take office, Washington, D.C., Nov. 7, 2008 (How Presidential. Obama later called Nancy Reagan to apologize)
“I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” — defending his tax plan to Joe Wurzelbacher , who argued that Obama’s policy hurts small-business owners like himself, Toledo, Ohio, Oct. 12, 2008 (Yet another random act of honesty. You’re on a roll, Mr. President!)
“What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith…” – September 7th 2008 in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, who jumped in to correct Obama by saying “your Christian faith,” which Obama quickly clarified. (Heh)
“I’m here with the Girardo family here in St. Louis.” –speaking via satellite to the Democratic National Convention, while in Kansas City, Missouri, Aug. 25, 2008 (Kansas City, St. Louis…whatevs)
“Let me introduce to you the next President — the next Vice President of the United States of America, Joe Biden.” –slipping up while introducing Joe Biden at their first joint campaign rally, Springfield, Illinois, Aug. 23, 2008 (I don’t remember McCain doing this. Or Bush for that matter)
“Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee — which is my committee — a bill to call for divestment from Iran as way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon.” –referring to a committee he is not a member of. — Sderot, Israel, July 23, 2008 (No gaffe, just a flat out lie)
“Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain…administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.” –Amman, Jordan, July 22, 2008 (Huh?)
“How’s it going, Sunshine?” –May 24th 2008 campaigning in Sunrise, Florida (Again channeling his geographically challenged Vice President)
“On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today – our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.” — May 26th 2008 in Las Cruces, NM (I see dead people)
“Hold on one second, sweetie, we’re going to do — we’ll do a press avail.” –May 14th 2008 to Peggy Agar, reporter for ABC’s Detroit affiliate, who asked about his plan to help American autoworkers. (War on women, huh?)
“I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.” May 9th 2008 –at a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon (We only have 50. This level of stupid should be painful)
“Why can’t I just eat my waffle?” –April 22nd 2008 after being asked a foreign policy question by a reporter while visiting a diner in Pennsylvania. (Would you peasants just leave me alone?)
“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” –April 6th 2008 explaining his troubles winning over some working-class voters. (Nice to know he wanted to be President of all the people)
“The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, you know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred in our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that’s just the nature of race in our society.” –March 20th 2008 (I’m sure grandma would be thrilled to know that on top of being a communist, she’s also a racist)
“Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions.” –March 4th 2008 exasperated by reporters after a news conference. (At least he wasn’t eating waffles this time)
“You’re likeable enough, Hillary.” – January 5th 2008 during a Democratic debate. (Opinions on this one vary)
“In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” –May 9th 2007 on a Kansas tornado that killed 12 people. (And you wonder why the debt is six trillion in four years?)
I know the last one was prior to four years ago, but that kind of idiocy must be included.
This, of course, is just a partial list of missteps, miscues, and outright lunacy over the tenure of one Barack Hussein Obama (Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm). I didn’t even make mention of the fact that he gave the Queen of England an iPod (Complete with his speeches), Prime Minister Gordon Brown some DVDs (In the wrong format), and Pope Benedict a bioethics document on abortion (Classy).
He kicked the Dali Lama out the back door of the White House (Don’t mind those trash bags), while welcoming in his bankers (China) through the front door. Has no time for Benjamin Netanyahu, but the sea hags on The View (Not you Elisabeth) get his undivided attention.
He shakes hands with enemies (Chavez, Ortega) and bows to fellow Heads of State. He shows up in Copenhagen as if the power of his presence alone would secure the Olympic Games (Eliminated in the first round). He callously buzzes the skyline of New York with Air Force One (Not that there was an attack with planes there, or anything) for a photo op.
You get the idea.
In summation (closing), I would appreciate if you, the Obama voters, would please reconsider voting for him again. I know you were sold on “Hope and Change” (Dullards), but what we got was “Shift and Blame”. The Messiah that you thought would lower the sea levels (Didn’t forget that one), made your kid’s debt rise. It’s OK; you can do better this time. You have another chance. You can correct the mistakes of the past (See what I did there?).
P.S. Obama “The Smartest President Ever” has a Juris Doctorate (Lawyer) and they are a dime a dozen. George W. Bush has a Master of Business Administration. From Harvard. (He’s the only President to have one.)
