Parents 'Mortified' After Baby Gives President Obama a Mouthful
ABC News ^ | 27 December 2011 | By Katie Kindelan

Posted on 12/27/2011 2:01:57 PM PST by Vigilanteman

President Obama may have been able to laugh off the mouthful of fingers given to him by an 8-month-baby while visiting U.S. troops in Hawaii, but the baby's parents could not.

"I was mortified. I was so embarrassed," Meredith Wagner, mother of the five-fingered culprit, Cooper Wagner, said today on "Good Morning America."

Wagner, 27, and her husband, Capt. Greg Wagner, 25, were smiling for the cameras with their son and President Obama on Christmas Day at the Marine Corps Base at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, which the president visited while vacationing on the island with his family.

As the three adults struck a pose, Cooper reached up and stuck his tiny fingers in the president's mouth.

Meredith Wagner saw it all happen and reached up to pull Cooper's hand away from the mouth of the leader of the free world, while her husband smiled straight ahead at the roomful of photographers, ensuring the moment would be captured in perpetuity.

I've always been of the opinion that babies are gifts from God sometimes sent by the angels to tell us things we would rather not hear.

The parents are stupid. The kid has it right. Somebody needs to put a cork in Zer0's mean mouth.

A tetanus shot and a round of antibiotics and the kid should be fine.

If it were my kid, when asked for comment, I would have said: “Well, he hasn’t learned to make a proper fist yet.”

Took his hand straight from his diaper to the dipster. Hopefully there was more than baby in the diaper.

It makes my stomach knot up thinking of this pos defiling the sacred ground of the Marine Corps base where so many of the nation’s heroes were borne. As for the baby, just another remembrance of his Sinclair moment.

"I was mortified. I was so embarrassed,"

A non story that needs to be embellished to keep the Obama mystique alive.............

The video clip of this was shown on the local Chicago news last night. The news reader spoke in enduring tones while explaining what happened. Obama doesn’t have a record to run on. The sycophants in the media will portray him as a lovable father-figure family man who loves children. It made me ill to watch.....

A typical non story on a slow news day,, needed to continue the MSM driven mystique of this phony clown.........In other news, Bo the dog has fleas and the wookie seen scratching herself.

The parents should be “mortified” that they participated in this bit of propoganda.

ENDURING this kind of pabulum from the presstitutes is what we have to do for another year.

Mortified, embarassed for what? The baby acted like a baby. Should be ashamed though for allowing her family to be used.
