Obama makes O.J. Simpson joke

SAN FRANCISCO – O.J. Simpson jokes are apparently now fair game in presidential politics.

President Obama invoked the former NFL star acquitted of murder Monday night during a fundraiser here during a riff about Sesame Street characters on the run from Mitt Romney seeking to cut federal funding from public broadcasting.

“Elmo has been seen in a white Suburban,” Obama said. “He’s driving for the border.”

Simpson, of course, traveled in a white Ford Bronco, not a Chevrolet Suburban, during his infamous 1994 low-speed chase through Los Angeles.

"....in a white Suburban...."

Might as well have called it a Honkie Suburban. More Zer0 racist dog whistling to his peeps.

Mr. Obama, you are a national embarrassment and a disgrace.

“Listen, you know, after the debate I had a bunch of folks come to me and say, ‘Don’t be so polite, don’t be so nice,’” Obama said. “But, but, I want everybody to understand something. What was being presented wasn’t leadership, it was salesmanship.”

Your salesmanship sucks as bad as your leadership, Hussein.

So Romney is talking about Israel, Iran, jobs, and energy and the boy king is chattering away incessantly about Elmo, Big Bird, and OJ Simpson.

And America is watching this. Dufus is digging the hole deeper.

OJ Simpson and Elmo? Really?

Zero’s handler (ValJar) has lost control. I’m beginning to worry something bad’s about to happen.

Hope Ryan has the true facts and figures about the finances of PBS at his fingertips, in case BiteMe raises this issue on Thursday night.

Well, see there?

You have the facts on your side and well, Barry is just one big Azz mistake after another while trying to to cute by half and for the life of me, I can’t figure out why he is so damn funny to his audience.

Bill was funny. Hell, he could be self deprecating just to get the punch line in.

Barry is a dunce and can’t take being made fun of, much less taking a real poke at himself for the sake of humor.

It ain’t funny to him and his little zib punches him when tries it.....

Obama has got no gas in the tank, there is not strategy, no grand plan here. Next town hall debate, Obama will be an interrupting snarky jackass, trying desperately to have a one liner that sticks. Romney just needs to stay composed and presidential. This thing is unraveling for Obama. The MSM is onto this week that safe Obama states like Pa, Michigan, Mn, and Ct are now in play. Ohio, Florida, Va, NC is gone. The damn is bursting and Magic Negro is making jokes and their best play is to go back to BillyJeffs 1996 “The are gojng after Semsame Street” meme. Pathetic, I expected more from the Ivy league wizkids. I see the rioting threats are dribbling out, soon the MSM will threatenus with that..civil unrest unless JugEars is re-elected.

It was leadership, Barry! You just don’t recognize it and he made you behave like a coddled child w/o your teleprompter and media cover. You were exposed!!

I’m guessing Elmo had the back end of the Suburban filled with cash and fleeing the country to avoid the upcoming tax hikes. Goodness knows how much moolah Big Bird has stashed in his nest egg. Found this - and this is just ELMO.:

During Tickle Me Elmo’s epic reign, Tyco—the toy company behind the mega-craze—saw its sales soar from $70 million to an astounding $350 million, all thanks to a simple plush toy.

Since that mania a decade and a half ago, Tickle Me Elmo remains the benchmark for products’ must-have status.

Gov. Romney has to know all that.

I wonder if he set a trap and the libtards walked right into it?

Maybe Obama knows something about Elmo the rest of us don’t know. Has Elmo ever been married? Did any of his ex-wives ever die violently? Maybe he and O. J. have something in common.
