Olbermann Asks Guest "What do WE do" About Obama Special Olympics Gaffe - Video 3/19/09
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | March 20, 2009 | BrianinMO

Posted on 03/20/2009 4:43:00 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of Keith Olbermann last night reporting President Obama's tasteless joke about his bowling being like the "Special Olympics or something."

What really jumps out at me is that after Olbermann reports what Obama said to his guest, he then says, "What do WE do, what does he do about that?" Be sure that the liberal media is asking that very question, "What do WE do about that" in order to save Obama's butt? . . . . . . (Watch Olbermann Video)

To call Obama the “Special Olympics President” would be to insult people who participate in the Special Olympics.

People in the Special Olymipcs do their best, and get hugged. Obama does his worst, and we get mugged.

I think people are, at long last, waking up to the fact that Obama’s basic problem is that he is an a$$hole.

Liberal Media has so much invested in this reprobate that watching their reactions to his gaffes, stupidity and witless attempts at humor is like watching 401K investors reading their portfolios.

What they’ll do is distract and deflect like the fascists they are.

Asking Furguson “What to we do”, as if he and Furguson were in a private chat and on the same page. Oh Noz, What can we do? Lose the video? Ask for a do-over? Accuse Republicans!

Hysterical setup by Obamaman... “He did this good, did that great, the audience loved him, talked serious, etc. But...”

What DO WE DO.. what does he do?

Craig Ferguson’s face was priceless “oooooooh.” “He has NBC cut it..”

Two libs discussing what to do about the pile of stinking fecal matter in the corner of the living room. “Let’s ignore it” they both concur.

That’s why 0bama requires a teleprompter, without it he’s a complete idiot. You’ll notice that during Gov. Palin’s Special Olympic address, as well as her stimulus announcement, she didn’t use a prompter. I don’t recall seeing a prompter during her last State of the State address either, only some notes.

Correct. Axelrod and Emanuel will NEVER allow him to speak without the teleprompter EVER again. That’s IT.

This was no “mistake” but is in fact how he feels about the disabled. Obie's Social Security Administration has already begun a full scale assault on the disabled. Every day the rules are changing and are more and more antagonistic toward particularly those with mental illness.

So what does he think about other groups? I a proud member of the "senior community" ... wanna' bet what he thinks about us? (Old, unproductive people hoarding money?) I work for a lifetime to save enough to live on in my retirement and this jerk wants to come along and take it away from me and give it to somebody else ... how does he differ from a common mugger? (... and as a side not, where the hell is the AARP to help us? Do you notice the SILENCE?)

Keith I know...just fill the buckets, do the heavy lifting and carry that water...and Keithy, don’t forget that your company NBC gave, yes gave, the White House—Team Obama—the final edit of last night’s appearance. So alot of people in the food chain there thought it was funny. Ha! A real knee slapper...

It’s discouraging that there are people like that alive, much less running the government. (Well, they are “much less” running the government, but you know what I mean.)

The same brilliant, sophisticated folks who gave Gordon Brown DVDs that only work in the U.S. ...

Olbermann Asks Guest “What do WE do” About Obama Special Olympics Gaffe

Since the media jumped into bed with Obama like a teenage girl high on ecstasy and didn’t use any protection(proper vetting), it will be fun watching then squirm while getting treated for the clap.......

I heard the CNN version of this “story” this morning on AM radio. They handled it by having the focus of the story be how well Obama did on the tonight show, and the audio clip they used was about Obama’s bowling skills. However, they stopped the clip before the “special olympics” comment. Any surprise there?...they will simply not report it until it disappears as “yesterday’s news”.

I can’t believe Sarah has been stalking the bowling alley of the White House, throwing Trig
at Obama. He has serious work to do and doesn’t need this $#i+ from Sarah...

Yeah...what do "WE" do to spin this in a positive way for our Messiah, right Keith?

I have a feeling you're going to be real busy doing things like this over the next four years.

Obama is all smily on the surface, but under a bit of stress, the real person emerges; insulting, strident, unsure. It reveals a narcissistic personality.

I normally don’t either, but just happened to notice the latest few to see how many remarks were made after the (-) teleprompter Hussein made his stupid remarks.

"I think people are, at long last, waking up to the fact that Obama’s basic problem is that he is an a$$hole."

I don't understand why people haven't known it since the "sensitive about my ears" and "can't I just eat my pancakes" comments.
