Obama falls on Florida stage; Bush's fault, no doubt (with video)
Investors Business Daily ^ | June 23, 2012 | Andrew Malcom

Posted on 06/23/2012 9:09:34 AM PDT by Zakeet

An exciting campaign video roused the Tampa crowd for the imminent vision of you-know-who Friday night.

"Please welcome," said the arena announcer, "the president of the United States!"

Pregnant pause to let the cheers build.

Then, out from behind the blue curtain sauntered the perpetually campaigning president, known today as Barack Obama. Big smile. Waving to the crowd.

Obama began his familiar jaunty jog up the stage steps, when, suddenly...Oops! Bam! He disappeared. Democrat down. (See video above)

Obama stopped the very public fall -- Forward -- with his hands, inches from a painful face-plant.

Then, he bounced back up, smiling. 'Hey, I meant to do that.' No, just kidding. He didn't really say that. At the podium, Obama tried to make a joke about his graceless entrance, saying he was in such a hurry to see his fans.

I was just pandering to whatever Gerald Ford voters may still be out there in Florida nursing homes ... and cemeteries!

I hope and pray that is foreshadowing of his fall from power.

You beat me to it. Obama must have been courting the Pres Ford supporters in FL.

Don’t forget the ridicule Bob Dole got from the Left when he fell off a stage because a railing collapsed.

Yes, becoming A Gerald Ford clone, I see!

Next, with all of that golfing, I’m waiting to see a ball bounce off his head - and wake him up!

I’m waiting for him to ‘bust it’ when he descends the stairs of AF1. Have you ever seen him do that with his hands flapping? I’ve never seen anything like it.

This was NOT a bow. It was merely Obama becoming unbalanced.

Wasn’t there an incident in 1996 when Bob Dole fell because the railing gave way, and the media used it to ask if he was too old to be President?

***Wasn’t there an incident in 1996 when Bob Dole fell because the railing gave way.***

I remember that. It was found the Secret Service made the railing flimsy so any attacker running up and grabbing the rail would fall back.

That Gerry Ford stuff in the MSM always p!ssed me off to no end. Ford was a star football player at Michigan and turned down the NFL to go to law school.

Baraq was a high school bench rider and head of the Choom Gang.

Good one, Kanawa.

(Obama's slogan for his 2012 campaign is the long-time commie buzzword "Forward".....for those of you in Rio Linda).

  Not bad, but if Obama had a bunch of clones of himself and they all fell down the stairs simultaneously, then that would be excellent!
