Let's list any of Obama's gaffe's, all of them, anything you can think of.
57 states, my muslim faith, all of it.
What gaffe's do you recall?
Add links and photos for accuracy.
Your exactly right. I remember that there was a book produce about the dumbest things President Bush ever said. However, where is such a book about this “President”. Heck, I can write it in just a day or two. Just sitting here in 30 minutes I can think of at least 50.
Plug the damn hole.
Typical White Person.
What about Compliments.
We bring a gun to a knife fight.
There will be hand to hand combat in the Congress.
Any of us could go on forever.
What a colossal piece of crap. Look at that damned logo in the center.
Oh, there you go, Daddy, did you plug the hole?
|Look up gaff or gaffe in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.|

This isn’t a gaffe.
This is just plain STUPIDITY.
right up there with his ‘speech’ (read campaign speech while holding the office) during a thunder storm and his “faithful” were holding metal chairs over their head.
I posted this thread 60 minutes ago, it’s over 100 posts. That’s more than one a minute.
don’t forget his ‘enemies’ comment.
There are so many comment’s. Let’s not just limit them to gaffes. How about his insults to America?
How about greeting the people in NEW Pennsylvania
I guess that was one of the other 7 new states
As I posted earlier, my ‘v’ and ‘e’ on this laptop ned an extra heavy push. ‘E’ just starting acting up yestrday. I’m trying.
Isn’t it kiminsky? What do I know, I’m a cheesehead.
When he claimed that doctors would lob off feet and rip out tonsils just to make money.
It would be akin to somebody professing to be a Packers fan and calling the stadium Lambert Park instead of Lambeau Field.
somone mentioned feet, the tonsils reference was more appropriate back in the 60’s when my 3 brothers and I got the family plan for the tonsil operation.
The apostrrophe was for the missing letter, I think. ;-)
However he said it, my spelling really didn’t matter, did it. What matters is, he professed he was a fan, who didn’t know how to pronounce the name of the field. Your analogy is correct, it would be blasphmy if a ‘fan’ said Lambert stadium.
These are mostly outright lies, but some may be gaffes.

50.) Wal-Mart Is A Company I Wouldnt Support - LIAR, your wife has received nearly a quater of a million dollars through Treehouse, which is connected to Wal-Mart.
51.) Treehouse Is A Small Company - LIAR, the CEO of Treehouse last year, made more than the CEO of Wal-Mart, according to public records.
52.) University Of Chicago Hospital Pay Is Fair - LIAR, your wifes pay raise was nearly 150% her already bloated rate and the hospital is a Non-Profit Hospital, which made $100,000,000 in the last 3 years. They overcharge blacks VS whites for services, and overcharge everyone in general by 538%!
53.)I Barely Know Rezko - Only 5 Billed Hours - LIAR, you have known him for 17 years, and decided to do a real estate deal with him during a time when he was proven to be under investigation. Despite this, you divided your property and had them take off $300K before the mortgage problems started. Then Rezkos wife buys the lot beside it that you cant afford, saving you $625,000.
54.) My Donations Have Been Checked Thoroughly - LIAR, you only gave back Hsu ($72K) and Rezko (first $66K, then when caught lying $86K, then when caught lying again $150K and now caught lying YET AGAIN OBAMA, its $250k) their money when publically called on their involvement in your campaigns.
55.) My Church Is Like Any Other Christian Church - LIAR, your church is so extreme, the pastor who married you, Rev. Wright, just got done blaming the US for 9/11 and named Louis Farrahkan their person of the year.
56.) I Disagree With My Church All The Time - LIAR, you still have yet to repudiate Wright, who married you and your wife, and you still donate large sums of money to assist the church in furthering its message - hatred and revenge. You donated in 2006 alone, $22,500 to the church that you so terribly disagree with. That is nearly $500 PER WEEK - that sure is disagreement, Senator Obama.
57.) I Have Clean Connections Despite Rezko - LIAR, you are not only connected to Exelon and Rezko, you are also connected to Hillary PAC supporter Mr. Hsu, AND an Iraqi Billionaire of ill repute, Nadhmi Auchi, who ripped off people in the Food For Oil, Iraqi deal. Seems Mr. Auchi may have helped Obama buy his million dollar property long before Obama had millions of dollars. Wonder what favors Mr. Auchi expects, when Obama leaves Iraq free to be taken over by special interests such as him.
58.) I never heard sermons like Rev. Wrights, that have been in videos all day, You Tube - LIAR! 3 days later during your Mea Culpa BS speech you said Did I hear controversial statements while I sat in that church? Yes I did.
59.) The Passport Invasion is a conspiracy to find dirt on me! - LIAR. Your own Campaign Foreign Policy Advisor is the CEO of the company that looked into your records. PS - You had them look into yours to hide the fact you looked into Clintons and McCains more than a year before!
60.) Rev. Meeks has nothing to do with my campaigning - LIAR. Rev. Meeks appeared in ads for your Senate Campaign, donated to you, and helped raise money, then AND NOW. PS - He also seems to despise America.
61.) My wife didnt mean America is ignorant, she was just using a phrase - LIAR. Again, MicHELLes comments perfectly sync with Wrights, Meeks, and Farrakhans, both in language, anger, and direction.
62.) I am very Anti-Terror - LIAR. [03/30/2008] One of your good pals is long time radical and terrorist William Ayers, with whom you have been seen in the last 12 months and who has helped the now jailed khalidi, Professor at Columbia who invited Ahmadinejad to the University, to raise money for Palestinian terrorism attacks against Israel. PS - Your church published a pro Hamas Manifesto - guess you werent there on THAT Sunday either? How lucky for you.
63.) I have the best plan to cure the Mortgage Crisis - LIAR. [03/30/2008] You and your campaign buddy Penny SubPrime Bank Collapse Prizker have had your little fingers full of subprime cash - Obama has taken $1,180,103 from the top issuers of subprime loans: Obama received $266,907 from Lehman, $5395 from GMAC, $150,850 from Credit Suisse First Boston, $11,250 from Countrywide, $9052 from Washington Mutual, $161,850 from Citigroup, $4600 from CBASS, $170,050 from Morgan Stanley, $1150 from Centex, and last but certainly NOT LEAST - Obama received $351,900 from Goldman Sachs. I am sure that cash all came from folks who knew the subprime loan they had was a dream, eh?
64) I played greater role in crafting liberal stands on gun control, the death penalty and abortion - LIAR - [03/31/2008] It was found that Obama the day after sitting for the interview filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obamas own handwritten notes added to one answer. Read Obama had greater role on liberal survey
65) I did NOT play the race card: - LIAR - [03/31/2008] Obama was the first to play the race card. According to Phialdelphia Inquirer, Quietly, the storm over the hateful views expressed by Sen. Barack Obamas pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, has blown away the most insidious myth of the Democratic primary campaign. Obama and his surrogates have charged that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has deliberately and cleverly played the race card in order to label Obama the black candidate.
He changed it to "inhalator!"
Where did you get that link? Thanks for all that! Please post the source. The selma thing, Rush has been hammering on it lately.
Obama was born 4 years before selma.
It was Obama's mispronunciation and his use of the term Field instead of Park that I was highlighting.
Good one, downloaded it.
It’s true, I am not an American.
link doesn’t work.
I knew you knew that. I was trying to type it as he pronounced it.
I’ve been here long enough. Anyone who matters knows that, anyone who’ll give me grief is an idiot. So far everyone has been good. And if I can’t take the heat, well, I should just slink away.
As a side note, I remember the gore supreme court threads you hosted. Thread 50 or whatever the count was. I was on those threads. Just wanted to thank you for a job well done that you could have cared less about my opinion at that time :). Good job with managing them. Oh, the old days.......
Close your tags
Announcer: So who’s your favorite White Sox player:
Obama..... thinks to himself, time to put on my tap dancing shoes....
“You know ah,uh, um, uh, um, well, um I I thought that ah, um you know.
The truth be told is that a lot of the cubs I like too. Um but, uh, I didnt become a Sox Fan Until I moved to Chicago. Because I ah, you know I was growing up in Hawaii so I ended up actually being an Oakland As fan.”
Everyone always says 57 states. He actually said he’d been to 57 states and had one more to go, and then said that his staff wouldn’t let him go to Alaska and Hawaii, so he wasn’t counting those. So, he actually said there were 60 states.
.....then there was that Roman numeral fiasco.
He mixed up Memorial day and Veterans day.
I posted this video earlier in this thread, and someone said that this was “baloney”. To be honest, it was the first time I ever heard that claim. The video looks real, I suppose it could have been doctored.
And the time he was talking about American's struggling with food prices and said..."Have you seen the cost of arugula lately?"
57 + 2 = 59
Oops,just saw the “one more to go” section.
Your count is correct.
The next thread should have been named fred.
I don't remember how caveman it was back then. You male freepers were dragging us females across the posting spectrum to post conservative messages, I remember. It was brutal. I was part of laz's "Real history" of freerepublic. Sad, sad days back then.....
Hi Ind: The pictures here are moving in many ways. First, they remind me of myself in 1956-1958 in Libya while in the USAF, although at that time we were not in combat. They show the human side of our great country and it’s great people.
Your daughter is a heroine.
Another good one! I forgot about the air pressure!
Is that a real photo? I highly doubt ANY president would be published picking his nose. As much as we abhor Obama, that’s not one I’m going to forward. Not one of us would be photographed picking our nose.
This posting makes the right look like idiots.
Iowa farmers growing arugla .
