Media degrades FLOTUS (instead of vetting POTUS)
Breitbart ^ | June 7, 2012 | John Nolte

Posted on 06/07/2012 3:24:54 PM PDT by edwinland

It's obvious from the clip below that the President was making a perfectly innocent joke about First Lady Michelle Obama's push-ups and that the crowd misinterpreted or chose to misinterpret it. But now the media is actually asking if Obama meant to tell a dirty joke about his own wife in front of a large crowd and who knows how many cameras:

You can see from the look on the President's face that once he realizes how the crowd interpreted what he said that's he's both horrified and angry -- as well he should be.

Looking for nothing more than link bait, rather than correctly interpret or dismiss what happened here, the media runs with headlines like: "Did President Obama Just Make A Blowjob Joke?"

In those rare moments when the media chooses to attack Obama, I don't normally assume the position of defending him, but this is grossly unfair. Furthermore it's degrading to the First Lady of the United States, which I find especially appalling.

Reporting the crowd's reaction is perfectly fair game, but wondering aloud if the President meant it, is way over the line.

Good heavens, there are two young children involved here.

An excellent analysis from an excellent news source.

I watched the video. Obama is clearly making a joke about Michelle cheating in push-ups. Initially he looks pleased when the crowd laughs at his very lame joke. Then the *ass-h*les in the audience start hooting and hollering and he looks confused. Then he starts stammering through the rest of his speech because his mind is still focused on figuring out what just happened, or he is embarassed by how it sounded.

I could easily see myself making the same mistake, minus the teleprompter.

This absolute piece of garbage and his absolutely piece of garbage wife have done so very much to soil, trash, crap all over, humiliate, and denigrate the office of the presidency. I thought that the Clintonistas were disgusting, but these two slobs are awful.

First of all, to hang around with Ellen Degenerate and then brag about it, shows that these low life punks are just in it for the free vacations, golf outings, celebrity associations, and the freebees . . . grifters, I guess you'd call them . . . but disgusting grifters.

I disagree completely.

Zero knew that he was making a smutty joke, and he pauses to milk it for everything it’s worth.

Nor did this fine, upstanding man give Hillary and McCain the Finger, he never called Sarah Palin a pig, and Squeezebox, by The Who, was all about an accordion.

Honestly, some people will believe anything.

If he didn’t want that reaction why would he say it? Why would he even bring up Mooch doing pushups? I think after he was crassly toying around, he realized he stepped in it big time when he got that huge reaction from the audience.

It’s not a blowjob joke. It’s a carpet munching joke about his wife going down on Ellen, a well known Hollywood homosexual.

This from the same creep who called patriotic men, women, and children “tea baggers”.

I personally think he’s worried about what Michelle is going to say the next time she gets him alone on the second floor of the White House — out of range of the Secret Service.

That is one SCARY female.

Hmmm. Now I don't know if he meant the double-entendre.

I do know that when I first saw a report on this story --on an MSM site-- Obama was described by the MSM reporter as pausing "naughtily."

Clearly, at least that MSM reporter believed that Obama meant to convey the double meaning.

Now that I've seen the clip, I'm not sure. But I do know that an "LGBT" audience is primed to interpret everything sexually.

Would such an audience frown on an off-color joke about any president's wife? No, they would think such a joke would be hip and cool.

Something tells me Barry has never been there to dine at the nappy dugout either. Nobody is swallowing what's being tossed off with this cycle. It's leaving a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

This was not a slip of the tounge on Barry's part. It's the pallet cleanser from Wisconsin in the news.

Not really - this whole thing is just another indication of the depravity of the media, AND the people whom he attracts and is supported by.

The title is absolutely wrong. He was talking about what ELLEN, an open lesbian, was saying. When Ellen said that Michelle didn’t go all the way down it was interpreted by the crowd as meaning Michelle did not perform oral sex on Ellen. The term BJ does not apply to female on female behavior of this type. A better to tile would be more accurate if it referenced a carpet or a rug.

You are absolutely correct. Those around here who are incapable of separating their hatred (a terrible word) for Barack Obama and filtering what they encounter outside of that paradigm.

It is readily apparent from the video that Obama didn't have a clue as to what folks were laughing at. When he finally realized what was going on, he looked a bit embarrassed and attempted to silence the crowd. I'm certain he was horrified at the thought.

Obama is a louse and an America-hating one at that, but he has so far proven to be a good father and husband from all that can be gleaned.

It's bad enough that liberals intentionally misconstrue what conservatives say and create stories where there is none, it is beneath conservatives to retaliate in kind . . . at least it is for this conservative.

I will verbally smack Obama as readily as the next guy, but I will not be a party to deliberate efforts to twist facts.

The dykes and fairies there may naturally think along those lines, but I doubt the President does especially when it comes to his family.

Nolte left out the part that made the joke perfect and useful for the occasion, it was a homosexual/lesbian fundraiser.

To work in this joke and then play shocked for the folks in flyover country, sure seems like a hip, audience connecting, coincidence of a mistake.

I’m suspicious.

I think you are right. He knew that was going too far, and was unexpected.

When I first heard the story I believed it purposeful, but at the time I didn’t realize Michelle had had an actual pushup contest with Ellen.

When you do a push up, you don’t go all the way down, otherwise you would be collapsing your chest on the floor. Therefore it was a stupid joke and he knew it. He was angry because he thought everyone was laughing at him.

The media will never stop protecting this jerk, even if they look stupid.

When I was taught to do a push-up....we touched our nosed to the floor...or pretty dang close to it.

Nevertheless, Hussein is a horses ass. Probably always has been...and will always be one.

She's scary, but one reason for her perpetual rage is being married to a Malignant Narcissist. If anyone doubts it, dissect what Obama just did to her. He got a whole room full of homosexuals laughing their butts off at Michelle's expense. When she brings it up to him, he'll swear he was only talking about push-ups. He's done this type of thing repeatedly in the past and he will keep on doing it. He's passive-aggressive, and nasty from the inside out. Yuck.

The frustration Michelle will experience is indescribable. She KNOWS Obama was alluding to her method, or lack thereof, in the performance of a certain sex act. She can't prove it, though, because he'll cop that famous and nauseating ‘innocent/surprised’ look he's so good at and swear it was merely a playful jab at her push-up technique. What's she supposed to do? Demonstrate that she can go all the way down?

So yes, she's scary. But don't discount the role Obama has played in turning her crank. She'd be no fun to live w, but I guarantee he'd be even less.

> Obama is clearly making a joke about Michelle cheating in push-ups.

Yes, I think he expected mild laughter, but from the nature and length of the laughter began to realize that something was wrong. At that point he may have realized what the problem was, and was disconcerted a bit.

Now that I have actually seen the clip, I'd have to agree, the guy didnt expect it. If he were any more white, he would have turned deep red.

This tells me that, assuming he knew the joke ahead of time, that this guy is a clueless fool for not realizing how the joke was going to go .. down.

IMHO the frown was just an attempt at plausible deniability. Obama has never deservered the Office of POTUS, which include the duties of Head of State. He doesn’t represent our nation in any sort of a dignified way. This “incident” is just another example of why he merits removal from office this November.

I disagree. Right before he delivers the line he pushes his tongue into his lower lip....kind of an, "I'm gonna be funny here.....watch out!"

I think the confusion and embarrassment comes when he realizes that:

A: Dang - I forgot the cameras are running! and

B: Bo snores.

Well, I guess he’s gonna have to throw TOTUS under the bus.

Still, as others have mentioned on this thread, if he didn’t realize how the joke would be taken, he’s totally frigging stupid. Oh, right... we knew that.

He’s talking to a group of gays — people who are proud to define themselves by their sexual proclivities — and he’s surprised that they see everything he says through a sexual filter?

I almost suspect sabotage by a Hillary operative in his speechwriter pool. Any way you look at this, he’s stepped in the deep doo-doo, and has no one to blame but himself.

Thanks; I got my experience the hard way.

To those who think Obama just didn't know...then why does it fit his pattern to a T? Don't you remember when he gave both McCain and Palin the middle finger? Back then some said he didn't really mean it—as if extending the middle finger full length at just the moment when you say is someone’s name [that you despise] is a normal, every day practice.

I also recall people arguing that he didn't really call Palin a pig. Let me tell you something. Malignant Narcissists LIVE to trick people into not realizing they've been made fools of. Few things are more crucial to a MN than ‘proving’ he is smarter than everyone else. One of the all time favorite methods for doing this is exactly what you see Obama do: i.e.: giving someone the Finger while innocently claiming he never did. Calling someone a pig and then sitting back and laughing his butt off when his leagues of defenders claim he didn't do it. Making a shameful sexual joke about his own wife, and then giggling himself half to death when his faithful troops rush out to swear it never happened.

This is what Malignant Narcissists do. It is, as I said, what they LIVE to do. You cannot envision the pleasure and satisfaction Obama gets when his loyal defenders claim, w sincere, straight faces, that he never did this to Michelle. It means he once again ‘got away w it’. When he gets away w it, it makes him feel like the smartest man alive. W all the negative polling, the loss in WI, and other bad signs for his reelection, Obama has never needed to feel superior as much as he does right now.

And he succeeded. He stuck the knife to his own wife, and then had the vast amusement/gratification of watching his mindless supporters exonerate him.

Obama is one sick—but at the moment very happy—sociopath.

With that interpretation, Fantasywriter, I think you’re being true to your name (sorry if you hear that all the time :-). It seems obvious to me from the expression on Obama’s face that he didn’t want that kind of reaction. I won’t go into the details here that I mentioned in the other thread. See post number 23 in the Rush thread — http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2892827/posts?page=20

Fooling people is what gives Malignant Narcissists great, almost indescribable pleasure. Be glad you’ve never known a MN. On the one hand, it leaves you wide open to falling for their oldest and most predictable tricks; on the other, it spares you all the misery of having to get to know what a MN is all about the hard way.

MNs are some of the best actors who ever walked the face of the earth. I’m on my way out the door, but when I get back I will (plan to) relate a true story that highlights the acting chops of a MN I knew up close and personal.

He should have won an Academy Award. More later.
