Skip to comments.Obama Gaffe: An Acorn Doesn't Fall Far from the Tree?

Obama makes a gaffe during a speech
Love how he choked - you can hear him gasping inside - when he said it.
It’s probably because I’m over-caffeinated, but what’s the gaffe? I understand that he used the word acorn, but why is that a gaffe?
Did you see McCain gaff...”My fellow prisoners?” we need to knock this GOTCHA crap off...its so pathetic.
Because he is currently falsely denying his ties to the corrupt, vote-stealing, economy-slaying Marxist organization ACORN.
It is a minor gaffe, in a sense. Usually people say, “The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree.” or I’ve even heard “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
I have NEVER heard (until this little gaffe): “The ACORN doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
Obviously, he has ACORN on his mind. :)
I’m thoroughly familiar with all that.
Does that mean he can’t use the word acorn the way he did, without it being called a gaffe?
I stand as firmly against Obama as anyone here, but this stuff is getting silly.
Do a search on acorn and youll finally get caught up with whats going on in America.
didn’t he also say last night that he wrote a letter to Bernanke - TWO YEARS BEFORE HE TOOK OFFICE?
Obama is a liar - just like BJ Clinton
Obama is not an American, he doesn’t speak the language, know the American culture, he knows it — Which is why he uhh, ahhh, errr ...
Every once in a while an acorn that proves it, pops out.
Don’t be ridiculous. I’m well aware of the ties between Obama and ACORN, as well as his denials. That isn’t the point.
This is a silly thing, calling this, a proper use of the word acorn, a gaffe. It’s just silly.
I think what was amusing was how he seemed dismayed to have it in his text before he read it. I’m with you on regular slip-of-the-tongue gottchas, but his reaction I think was worth a chuckle.
“Gaffe” = DemoGenerate code word for ‘LIE’.
Obama is nothing if not a LIAR.
This soundbite should be put in an ad exposing 0bama’s ACORN connections and ACORN’s voter fraud drive.
That ran thru my mind again last night when he pronounced Pakistan as "Pockeystahn"; very mohammedan-esque, IMO.
Maybe he confused the apple with the acorn because of the breaking news today of the spreading voting fraud across the country - as usual each election - by ACORN.
Bet he’s nervous that people will finally find out just what HE did as a “Community Organizer”. He was working hand in hand with Acorn, who’s crews to go out and scour the flotsom and jetsom and graveyards and phonebooks to register “voters” - He was proud of it...as he said less than a year ago:
“Ive been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work. Barack Obama, Speech to ACORN, November 2007”
He also acted as the attornery who successfully: “Obama Sued Citibank Under CRA to Force it to Make Bad Loans”
There have been reports of intimidation of bank presidents also to force them to make the NINJA loans (No income no job) and just last year said that giving sub-prime loans was a good idea.
Here we go folks. Our GIANT GOLDEN GOOSE EGG that ties Obama in his own words and court documents to the corrupt ACORN outfit and the whole mortgage mess that collapsed the economy...Those loans were shifted over to FANNY and FREDDIE - part of the reason Obama is the second highest recipient of donations from FANNY AND FREDDIE???
And in the original bill that the demRats tried to ram down our throats included giving ACORN! 140 BILLION! The republicans, in part thanks to McC going to DC and forcing the Senate to listen to the house republicans, got that cut out.
So here’s the link, folks, to the proof that Obama was “smack dab in the middle of all of it.” This should answer a lot of questions about who was working hand in glove with the gang that sank the economy.
SEnd this link to all our regulars, starting with Hannity -
and let Obama try to wiggle out of his own words.
Remember the formula of the networks: The office people that screen the emails only pass them on when they get X-amount on a given subject.
So this is OUR part - WE the PEOPLE - in protecting our freedoms.
and the McC/Sarah campaign at:
Be sure to add your name and town and email - or they won’t read them.
IMPORTANT when emailing. they wont read mass emails - SO,
put just one email add in the to line then click on BBC at the end of that line. a BCC line will open just above subject line. copy paste the rest of the addresses in there and each recipient will see ONLY their name - and in the subject line make reference to ___________________
Lets make it happen. This is our part in protecting our freedoms = WE THE PEOPLE - we act now or get ready for Jack Boots and Brown Shirts...Obama already has his personal police force plans ready
copy the email addresses for use for the rest of the campaign
Did you see this in my post #10?
It’s not an uncommon saying at all, apparently.
you wanna see pathetic? wait until we have BHObama in the WH!
See my post #19 = you may understand.
A Freudian slip ? Like when he was talking to George Stephenopolis and said "they're trying to attact my Muslim faith." and then went on without a beat. George said - ah, you mean Christian faith? - Obama said nothing.
With the news about ACORN tonite, he's no doubt and understandably nervous - per my post #19
See post #19 - let's make it happen
Yeah I know... but ninny picking or whatever you call it is not enduring to a conservative forum, I would like to think....It only opens us up to future ridicule and a diversion to the real issues...
As soon as Barry said acorn he went silent and his following words were filled with nervous ahhhs.
I think Barry uses projection a lot.
“When a person has uncomfortable thoughts or feelings, they may project these onto other people,
assigning the thoughts or feelings that they need to repress to a convenient alternative target.”
And has many Freudian slips-like “ my Muslim faith.”
The guy’s a mess.
too bad little George Stephanopoulos wasn’t there to correct him
marking for later
Its not not silly ...its shows hes stressed.
HE falters and halts a lot. Maybe he did realize the people would chide him for saying that, but a gaffe? Nah, it’s a silly charge.
