'I'm not the young Muslim socialist I used to be!' Obama blasts his critics

TITLE:'I'm not the young Muslim socialist I used to be!' Obama blasts his critics and even mocks Michelle's hair at Correspondents' Dinner

He presents jokes ranging from his wife's hair to Michelle Bachmann and CNN's reporting mistakes

Controversially jokes he thought Buzzfeed was something he did in college and says he's no longer a 'strapping young Muslim socialist'

Followed by Conan O'Brien who says Boehner looks like tanning mom and that Rahm Emanuel looks like Stewie from Family Guy

Pictures of him with Michelle-style bangs, quips about Jay-Z and sideswipes at the media and his political foes helped Barack Obama win laughs at this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner.

The traditional send-up speech saw the President earn some laughter at his own expense but also land some funny blows against the media and the Republican Party.

The President opened with a soft joke about his time in office but increasingly moved onto more controversial territory - even joking about 'burning books with Michelle Bachmann'.

He said his advisers said he should stick to the traditional format and make jokes knocking himself down a peg or two.

He added: 'After four and a half years how many pegs are there left.'

'I still make rookie mistakes,' he told the 3,000 strong audience. 'Like, I’m out in California, we’re at a fundraiser, we’re having a nice time and I happened to mention that Kamala Harris is the best looking attorney general in the country. As you might imagine, I got trouble when I got back home. Who knew Eric Holder was so sensitive?'

'And then there’s the Easter Egg Roll, which is just supposed to be a nice event with the kids. I got out on the basketball court, took 22 shots, made 2 of them.

‘I’m not the young Muslim socialist I used to be!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

No he is not indeed. Now he is a nationalist socialist, in other words a fascist. Obama long ago left his Marxism behind for the trappings of thugs , racial superiority, and
take wealth from the wealthy, and defining the right conservative classs as the enemy,which meet on all four corners with the fascists we already have seen in history.

Contrary to what the left now says, fascism does not originate with conservativesm ir comes from the utopoian left and its allegedly superior ideology which justifies ALL wrong.

Obama is a curse and a pustule on the faberic of our republic.

Good Read:

Double Team: O Goes on Offense, O'Brien Plays Defense at Correspondents' Dinner

Not one to invoke self-deprecating humor, President Obama was on the offensive all night long. Entering to DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win,” Obama immediately disclaimed any possibility of jokes about himself: “My advisors were a little worried about the new rap entrance music. They are a little more traditional. They suggested that I should start with some jokes at my own expense. Just take myself down a peg. I was like, ‘Guys, after four and a half years, how many pegs are there left?’”

Then Obama opened with a crack about Rush Limbaugh. But that was just his opening salvo. After dropping some typically defensive humor about his past -- “I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be,” Obama joked, later adding a birther reference – he turned to every Republican who has ever challenged his infallibility.

Okay, just a dumb question (and not really related to the topic), but is there a means to drum Bloomberg out of the party? I mean, don’t they have to endorse him? I mean, you can’t just say “I’m a Republican” and run as that party, can you? Can we find out a way to get this man out of the party so people don’t associate him with the GOP? And, let’s do this for others, too, if that can be done....

Obama looks like a tanning mom who stayed in too long. He he he this is fun.

I think he is rubbing our face in it. He’s a Muslim Socialist and there’s nothing we can do. (never thought of him as strapping though.)

Not so fast on “not a Muslim.” He did pollute the senior ranks of the Justice Department with nine Islamic terror sympathizers who had donated hundreds of hours of pro-bono legal work to GITMO jihadists. Some of those nine doubtless had a hand in sabotaging the investigation of the brothers by cutting short the interrogation of the surviving Boston bomber. This was obviously done to permit the bomber's enablers and co-conspirators to escape detection. Treason at the highest levels.

At some point, someone needs to look beyond his references to his Muslim roots.

The photo’s of him in Muslim garb, his ‘slips’ in an interview that he is a Muslim. “The most beautiful sound in the world is the call to prayer”. It goes on and on.

ALL of it is part and parcel of one of the biggest communist distractions ever perpetrated on the American public AND the world.

[I’m not the young Muslim socialist I used to be!’]

The distraction continues, he and his comrades ie: czars are getting so worried that the mask may be coming off that they would actually put those words in his mouth.

They would actually go so far to have him admit he was a muslim socialist, ANYTHING but what he and they are...communists.

He thinks we think he’s kidding.”

“”I think he is rubbing our face in it. He’s a Muslim Socialist and there’s nothing we can do. (never thought of him as strapping though.)””

That is exactly what he is doing.

"I'm not the young Muslim socialist I used to be!"

Every once in a while filthbags like Osama Obama will tell the truth about themselves and do it openly.Hitler did so frequently.Stalin and Mao did it at least a few times.And now Osama Obama's done it.His statement is absolutely accurate and truthful...as far as it went.For the truth,the *whole* truth and nothing *but* the truth he should have finished that statement with "today,I'm an atheist follower,student and admirer of Mao Tse Tung,Saul Alinsky and Bill Ayers".

He left by himself. He now calls himself an 'Independent'.

Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist, also calls himself an 'Independent'.

Draw your own conclusions.
