Barack Obama delivered a speech in West Lafeyette, IN on Wednesday and once again mangled some well known historical facts:

"Throughout our history, America's confronted constantly evolving danger, from the oppression of an empire, to the lawlessness of the frontier, from the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor, to the threat of nuclear annihilation. Americans have adapted to the threats posed by an ever-changing world."

Aaah yes – "the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor." Who can forget that? It was the big one, the one that took out all those boats. I guess Obama's political correctness prevents him from noting someone actually dropped "the bomb" and it didn't just fall.

This is a surprising error for a Hawaii native (via the great Kansas heartland) to make. Perhaps Obama was merely confused, as he and his surrogates so often accuse John McCain of being.


Good thing he wasn't handed a card with the word "potato" incorrectly spelled on it by a teacher. His momentary confusion over that would be the laughing stock of the late-night comedians for YEARS.


"I've now been in 57 states, I think one left to go."
~ Barack Obama,
May, 2008 speaking to a crowd in Oregon.


"On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors it's unbroken line of fallen heroes and I see many of them in the audience here today..."
~ Barack Obama,
May, 26 2008 giving a prepared speech at Las Cruces NM.


"They don't pose a serious threat to us... Iran may spend one one-hundredth of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance"
~ Barack Obama,
May 18, 2008.

["Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program, it supports terrorism across the region..."
~ Barack Obama,
May 20, 2008.

Well - which is it dummy!??

Duuhhhh... Iran was a threat, before it wasn't a threat.

Or the name of the plane used and who it was named after. Why would that be important when American Idol is about to start. In all honesty, I can't recall the pilots name off the top of my head. But, the plane was named after his mother. Interesting reading the whole story of his training which was linked here once.

Hillary Rodham Clinton grew up in Oak Park, IL. The state of IL borders on the state of Kentucky. Barack Obama said before the Kentucky primary that the voters were likely to vote for Hillary because she's from Arkansas, and it's closer to Kentucky! Barack represents the State of Illinois in the U.S. Senate, and it's nice he informed us of his prior drug use, because apparently the stuff hasn't worn off!

He's a "post turtle."

For those of you who don't know what a post turtle is, please rad on.

You're driving down the road and you see some poor turtle stranded on top of a fence post. He can't get off because his little legs can't reach the top of the post that his bottom plate is sitting on. What can anyone assume from this turtle?

1. He didn't get there by himself nor is there anyway he could ever get there on his own.
2. He has no idea how to get out of his predicament.
3. It is obvious that someone else put him up there.
4. Left to his own devices, he will perish for lack of imagination and talent.

The Dali Bama, Black Jesus, the Obammessiah, the First Black Bill Clinton, Barrack H. Obama is a damn post turtle.

Clinton (The Man from Hope), for all his many faults, flaws, and gross immorality, was better presidential material than the Obama (The Brother from Another Mother).

What’s So Funny About Obama? Not Much


What’s So Funny About Obama? Not Much

Tuesday, July 15, 2008 4:00 PM

By: Jim Meyers Article Font Size

Late-night television hosts have had no trouble joking about Hillary Clinton or John McCain during the election campaign, but Barack Obama has for the most part escaped their jibes.

The reason cited by most of those connected to the shows is that there is no comedic “take” on Obama, nothing offering an easy laugh, “like allegations of Bill Clinton’s womanizing, or President Bush’s goofy bumbling, or Al Gore’s robotic persona,” The New York Times observes.

Mike Barry, who has been writing political jokes since the Johnson administration and currently works for David Letterman‘s show, told The Times: “The thing is, he’s not buffoonish in any way. He’s not a comical figure.”

Almost anything approaching a joke about Obama has fallen flat, according to The Times. When Jon Stewart quipped on “The Daily Show” recently about Obama’s flip-flopping on campaign financing, the audience reaction was so unenthusiastic that he said: “You know, you’re allowed to laugh at him.”

Another reason for the hands-off-Obama approach could be that “a lot of people are excited about his candidacy,” said Mike Sweeney, head writer for Conan O’Brien on “Late Night.”

“It’s almost like: ‘Hey, don’t go after this guy. He’s a fresh face. Cut him some slack.’”

The race question has also made it more difficult for comics to lampoon Obama. “I think white audiences get a little self-conscious if race comes up,” said Sweeney.

The late-night comics haven’t completely abandoned Obama, however. Jay Leno quipped: "Well, the Democrats are now preparing for their convention in Denver, and they have hired the first ever director of greening. They say that this year that everything about their convention will be green, including nominating a candidate who's only been a senator for a couple of years."

Still, Sweeney said: “We’re hoping he picks an idiot as vice president.”

Without giving your accusation a direct response, why else would you make this a personal argument other than in the absence of a good point? You are trying to dismiss what I say because it is true.

Double standard


The double standard comes from the Left even moreso. Plenty of people on here mocked Bush for his oratory gaffes. The left engaged/es in constant mocking of Bush's speaking ability, yet what do we hear when their Chosen One does the same thing, and worse?

See the post immediately below yours for the underlying reason we point out Obama's gaffes.


The media, Hollywood and late-night comedians can't/won't find ANYTHING to mock about ObamaChristSuperstar because they are cowering, white-guilted Liberal tools and swooners of Obama who, in the words of MSNBC's Chris Matthews, feel "a thrill going up my leg" whenever he speaks.


Hypocrisy. That's what it's all about.

Not to mention the left (and the right) didn't have any problem making Bush out to literally be a Monkey, since he does kinda look like one. Try that with the Messiah, even though he kinda looks like one, and see how far you get.

Let me get this straight-


1. If you accuse me of turning the conversation to Bush to deflect contrast criticism of Obama-


2. And you say you are doing the same thing by directing it toward me-

3. And then say that doing so is a typical Obama supporter tactic-

Aren't you a typical Obama supporter?

There were two planes with two names.

What were they? (I'll assume you know one)
