Skip to comments.Charlie Wilson's Slip (Osama bin Laden/Obama and Biden)
Posted on 08/26/2008 7:26:34 PM PDT by phrogphlyer
Former Texas Rep. Charlie Wilson -- yes, that Charlie Wilson -- was speaking at an anti-war rally when he, um, flubbed a line:
"We should be led by Osama bin Laden," he said, then quickly corrected himself. "I mean Obama and Biden."
How does that Southwest commercial go? Want to get away?
Didn’t we watch that movie tonite? Ping
I’ll watch anything with Juliia Roberts in it...
Both have friends who blew up the Pentagon. It is an easy mistake to make.
Yes, I know it's Huffington Post, but the video is worth it. Obama headquarters in Pakistan.
By any chance did they get on video, when Olberman was on live mike cussin’?
I saw a link claiming to be that, but it was just Scarborough and Shuster going at it for 10 minutes. If Olbermann cusses on live TV but nobody was watching, did it really happen?
From what I read, he was on a live mike but not sure if he was on screen at the time.
He was off-screen with an open mic. Scarborough was talking about momentum shifting from Obama to McCain, and Olbermann says, "Jesus, Joe, why don't you get a shovel?" Almost inaudible, but then Scarborough responds.
Thanks for the ping! That is TOO funny - and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. I’ll bet everytime he thinks about that his stomach turns now! He’s probably worried that Obama will think he doesn’t love him anymore! LOL
I just loved it how everyone was trying to console him - “Oh, we know what you meant”, and then he goes on to say that the terrorist threat helped get Bush elected - only the lady in her effort to try to smooth over the mistake made one herself and said he was re-elected in 2006! LOL
Everyone is thinking it in the back of their heads - even his supporters. Things like this only catch on when there’s a kernel of truth behind it... They KNOW where he stands (with terrorist radicals like Ayers, and that Mansour guy who helped him get into Harvard). Obama’s name might as well be bin Laden for all the good he’s going to do for the country if elected!
I saw that video last night... I think they need more sleep! LOL They were all sniping at each other back and forth like children - and it wasn’t just in this segment, either! LOL
Something 's got to give.
