Democrats Outraged as Grassley Calls Obama ‘Stupid’
Newsmax ^ | 09 Apr 2012 | Martin Gould

Posted on 04/10/2012 12:36:35 AM PDT by iowamark

Democrats have hit back at veteran GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley for calling President Barack Obama “stupid” in a weekend Twitter message.

“Ive know @ChuckGrassley a long time. I am saddened he would embarrass himself like today with his comments about the President,” Obama's campaign manager, Jim Messina, tweeted. Meanwhile White House senior adviser David Axelrod said, “Heads up, Sen. Grassley. I think a 6-year-old hijacked your account and is sending out foolish Tweets just to embarrass you!” ABC News reported.

But the senior senator from Iowa was unrepentant. “In his Tweet on Saturday, Sen. Grassley said that it doesn’t speak well of any constitutional law professor to not understand Marbury v Madison, and that the people understand the independence of the judiciary,” said a spokesman.

Grassley sent out two messages about the president on Saturday over the 140-characters-or-less social media. The first said, “Constituents askd why i am not outraged at PresO attack on supreme court independence. Bcause Am ppl r not stupid as this x prof of con law.”

Then he attacked Obama’s policy on Syria. “Possibility of peace and freedom for Syria gets more remote as PresO plays along w the farce of Kofi Annans negotiatios there Barack wakeup.”

Grassley, 78, has occasionally struggled with the challenges of Twitter. Shortly before sending out the first Obama message, he tweeted the single letter “P.”

The Iowa State Daily even compiles a list of what it calls “Chuck Grassley's struggles with Twitter.” Last month he referred to a Fox News interview he had with “greta van sunshine,” and in an apparent reference to his campaign to have the Supreme Court sessions televised he tweeted, “Need 2 pass my cameras in courts leg.”

But when the Democrat Majority Leader of the Senate Harry Reid called President Bush “Stupid” in front of a group of School Children, it wasn't a problem.

Now, when are the Republicans in the Senate going to remind the Nation of Harry's little episode? How about the Press?

“As Conservatives, we shouldn’t stoop to their level”

A yeah...SCREW THAT!

I’ll worry about what the democrats think just as soon as they pass “reasonable” accountability measures on the main stream media.

Till then, they can lick my Southpark.

I am ‘outraged’ that they are ‘outraged’.

But, I guess that doesn't count.

See, In order to be ‘outraged!’, you first have to be a loony, or stupid that will count.

If you are just a normal guy, living life, you have no standing to be ‘outraged’.

(that is what we are fed daily, that's what they tell us)

The man is a lot of things but stupid is not among them. A person that can shuck and jive, hem and haw, lie and hide his true self long enough to scheme his way into the oval office is a very dangerous Manchurian Candidate politician whose true mission is known only to him and his communist party.

Grassley was right... your little gay commie is dumber that a box of hammers... he has made 100 trillion times more gaffs than biden and yet they are ignored... and biden is the world class champion gaffer. Dan Quayle was destroyed because he used the proper English spelling of potato(e) and yet this sausage smoker is given a pass for gaffs that would destroy any Conservative that uttered them. DUMBER THAN A BOX OF HAMMERS! What I find embarrassing is that America allows dims to walk freely amongst us.

Speaking like this..."Bcause Am ppl r not stupid as this x prof of con law" and he calls Obama "stupid"?

Text-speak and Twitter-speak are horrendous abuses of the English language. These abominations have destroyed the ability of many our kids to write a coherent paragraph, much less a term paper.

Clever, deceitful, cunning and evil... but none of those traits alone or combined make up intelligence. The dude is a imbecile and he has no proof that he has an education... there is a very limited trail of data... incomplete and insufficient to prove his claims... and then we have his own speeches, statements and gaffs that surpass any other American politician ever... including the gaff-o-matic biden.

I believe the number of Americans he actually “put one over on” was much lower than most people think. Between voter disenchantment with Juan McLame and the GOPe and outright vote fraud perpetrated by the Obama camp and its loyal union friends, he won the election.

Doesn't make a difference if he's bright or stupid. He's a puppet who does what he's told. He's a manufactured cipher whose background has been sanitized and obfuscated. He's a TV game show host for the 21st century, bought and paid for and set up as a facade so that TPTB can operate behind the scenery.

We are not really fighting Obullsh!t. We're fighting his handlers.

Not only is Barack Obama stupid, he’s a lousy politician. He wasn’t likely to get ANY political mileage out of strongarming the Supreme Court, but he risked alienating even his disciples with such a heavy-handed power play.

I’m starting to think Al Gore was the brighter option ...

So, what do you call him?

Umbama is an actor playing a role...definately not smart and definately not stupid...he was smart enough to play his role well enough to get to the oval office; but once there, the spotlight exposed his gaping stupidity at every turn...ultimately, the jerk is a poser that is being controlled by others...he was propped up since childhood (mother, father, stepfather and grandparents are all suspected to have been CIA assets)...fortunately, his phony persona is quite evident in his facial expressions and tone of voice; for anyone that cares to notice.

Zero is not merely stupid, he’s also ignorant and indifferent to our suffering, morality, ideals, and plans for the future. The reason he spends so much time away from the White House is that all the plays are called in from the sidelines.
