This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so pitiful. Okay, it’s still hilarious and I’d say Obama may be just a wee bit nervous about his support from the Jewish community these days.
I have just one question? What good does it do to pit once group of Americans against others? It doesn’t create more jobs. Real Americans don’t hate rich or successful people, they admire them and aspire to be like them. Until recently (along about Jan 2009), that was the American dream. Work hard and go for your dream. Equality of opportunity, not guaranteed equality of outcome.
More ‘off the teleprompter’ moments:
- While pitching his Jobs bill standing under a bridge, “We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad.” —Cincinnati, OH, Sept. 22, 2011 (hello that would mean crossing from one continent to another over the ocean).
- “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.” —at a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon, May 9, 2008
- “Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard.” –mispronouncing “Corpsman” (correct is “Core-man; the ps is silent) during a speech in Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman’s name is also Christopher, not Christian). I guess he never heard of the Marine Corps or the Army Corps of Engineers*/%$*@!
- “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” — defending his tax plan to Joe the Plumber, who argued that Obama’s policy hurts small-business owners like himself, Toledo, Ohio, Oct. 12, 2008
- “The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.” –Tampa, Fla., Jan. 28, 2010
- “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 .” (let’s see were they lined up in caskets or propped against the wall??).
- “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” –on a Kansas tornado that killed 12 people
Keep ’em coming Mr. President. At least it makes your speeches interesting!
