Obama channels Hendrix on critics: ‘They talk about me like a dog’

By Holly Bailey

Has President Obama been listening to a lot of Jimi Hendrix lately? With just under two months to go before Election Day, Obama kicked off the fall campaign season Monday with an aggressive speech targeting Republicans. But it was an off-script moment in the speech that's attracted the most attention, as Obama accused his GOP critics of talking about him "like a dog."

"Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time –– and they're not always happy with me –– they talk about me like a dog. That's not in my prepared remarks, but it's true," Obama said during a speech at Wisconsin's Laborfest on Monday.


Though Obama didn't acknowledge it, the line was a verbatim quote from "Stone Free," the first song Hendrix wrote after moving to England in 1966. "They talk about me like a dog," the song says. "Talkin about the clothes I wear. But they don't realize they're the ones who's square."

It's unclear if Obama consciously or unconsciously cited the lyric. A White House spokesman did not respond to requests for comment.

HENDRIX was an extraordinary individual, I won't say all of what I want to because of my "religious" views. When I saw his name next to the kenyan I wanted to puke.


ETA–– Yes his name was James, and he used Jimmy early in his career–– It is JIMI.

Obama has an amazingly bad idea of what people want to hear from a president.

This "treat me like a dog" stuff is whiny.

Presidents are never supposed to be whiny, they are supposed to be capable instead.

whiny = wussy

what a dope, he made himself look even worse than usual.

Yes, it's whiny and tattle-tail-ish.

"Momma they said..."

But I think this Hendrix stuff is kinda dumb. Not nearly as dumb as his whining though!
The jug-eared motherfucker called himself a "mutt" and a "mongrel" before. That shits on tape.

"Purple Haze man!"

This whole "like a dog" talking point sounds like some stupid 60's hippy radical advisor's wet dream. Obummer throws out the "mongrel" bait early. People laugh at how dumb and pathetic he is. Obummer gets to play the victim for his victim sycophants later.

These marxists are experts at framing the debate. Don't put anything past them. Notice how the anointed one imported a shit ton of clinton retreads? They have planned for this moment for a long long time.

And it wasn't even that great of a line to begin with....

If Obama ever wants to be taken seriously ever again, he needs to stop the butthurt whining and finger-pointing and blame shoveling and take a Truman tack with "the buck stops here." Grow some fucking balls and man up and take responsibility. You're the President of the United States, fucking ACT LIKE IT.

That'll happen right about the time he announces his belief in trickle-down economics though.

I think he might be trying to tap into the whole racism thing,

the white man be treatin me like a dog... whitey dont gimme no respect cause I'm a black man

it'll kick back in his face like everything else he does to hide the fact that he's a low rent liberal blow job and completely incompetent

now he's getting whiny. he has such a tin ear for the public, always seems to strike the wrong chord

it's like his psychotic levels of self-love are being shaken for the first time, he cannot get his bearings

I doubt dipshit has ever listened to Hendrix, it's not that unique of a choice of words. His favorite song is "I'd like to teach the world to sing", which he wants to be the National Anthem. It's not like he got up and said "THEY TALK ABOUT ME LIKE 'CAT SCRATCH FEVER, DUN NUH NUH" and played air guitar.

I mean really, not to belabor the point, but his favorite song is "I'd like to teach the world to sing" for fuck's sake. He's probably never even heard of Jimi Hendrix.
