Skip to comments.Obama's joke?

President Obama, in Los Angeles for a fundraiser, offered this observation on his wife's exercise routine, via the pool report:
Michelle outdoes me in pushups as well, he said, after saying that shes taken some criticism on her technique because she doesnt go all the way down a line that he let hang, naughtily, provoking laughter.......

It would be so easy to make a Larry Sinclair reference, but I won’t.
I can’t wait to hear Bill Clinton weigh in on this one...
Larry allegedly went all the way down. The working title of Larry’s new book is supposedly “One Man Standing”, which implies that the other man is on his knees.
Obviously, a marriage of convenience.
All that being said, this is beyond reprehensible. Who speaks of their wife this way-especially in public? What an arrogant, classless, piece of garbage.
What you said.
He's losing his perspective on what plays to normal people.
What is wrong with what he said? When I read it I thought about what makes pushups hard (proper form) and not some sexual innuendo. I hate this sort of nit-picking. The guy was talking about pushups not sex.
The greater point is obama, the metrosexual, is saying his wife can do more pushups than he can which is pathetic given that michelle is overweight. That is what I picked up on.
What a despicable thing to say about your wife in a public forum. I didn’t think I could feel any more animus towards the golfer-in-chief - and here he says something so vile.
Doesn’t say much about the audience either.
November can’t get here soon enough for me.
No matter what you think of the way President Bush executed his presidency, there is no comparison between the two as just MEN.
I don’t care for either of them...but she is the mother of his beautiful children. Any man who respects his wife and kids would not speak this way. I just lost the respect I had for the Obama’s seemingly decent marriage.
Maybe he could show her how?
Imagine someone trying out this “material” at your backyard barbecue.
The embarrassed glances among your friends and neighbors. The averted eyes. The sidelong looks to confirm, hopefully, that the kids in the pool were out of earshot. The guy with the big hearty voice trying to cover by offering to go get more ice...
This jaw-dropping incident should be a campaign issue till November. Don’t let them bury it. Bring it up on blog comments, in posts to newspaper editors, and anytime a pollster or reporter asks about the election.
Where did he steal that joke?
Obama is still missing his days as a switch hitter, I see.
So... Let me see if I understand this...
The PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES made an oral sex reference about his wife?
Will any one ask The First ‘Lady’ why she does not “go down” on the president? (at least not “all the way”)
This man-child should be sent packing... now
The audience figured it out pretty fast.
