Via Fox Nation. See now why the DNC has to resort to running dumb ads like this? The alternative is to let this guy go out on the stump and explain Americas crippling unemployment in his own words. Heres where that strategy gets you.
The scary part is that many won’t wake up. It’s amazing how many people are like Zombies.
In this instance, what could possibly follow to mitigate the idiocy of what he said? “Just kidding.” “April fools.” What?
As a general principle I agree with you, but it's a long enough clip to show it's not out of context or unfair.
I don’t know what else he might have said. That’s the point. I agree that it’s likely there was nothing he said which could redeem that idiocy but I don’t like jumping to that conclusion. It feels....leftish...to do so.
Calling this jamoke an idiot is unfair to real idiots.
True, and the same with Clinton in 96. The masses cried “more!”.
They will put this fool in the WH for a second term, spelling disaster.
Sharp as a sack o’ wet rats.
Must be Mexican ATMs - doing the jobs that Americans simply WON'T do!!
Once again, Dear Leader proves that he's dumber than a bucket of hair!!
“In this instance, what could possibly follow to mitigate the idiocy of what he said? Just kidding. April fools. What?”
Remember the youtube video where Obama ‘admits’ that he was born in Kenya to a bunch of bored students?
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
When barry the bastard makes comments like this, it is evident he is aiming these fantasy assertions at his people whom he believes to be too dumb to know hes making up crap to feed to them.
That’s the damned truth.
OMG, this idiot really wants us stooped over in the rice fields, doesnt he?
Sure, that’s part of the daily schedule in the Re-education camps he envisions.
No I don't, but then again I've been drinking more than usual in the last 2 1/2 years so... :)
Oh? Awesome. Thanks for telling me!
I don`t think even Carter was this clueless and out of touch.
Pretty soon even the ATMs will be out of work as people drain their accounts to pay for food and gas.
Ok, having seen the rest of that portion of the interview I feel comfortable saying he’s actually looking at improvements in service delivery (ATM’s, airport kiosks) as job killers. I’m not sure he’s a full-on Luddite who is looking to remove those improvements but when he finishes talking about them he’s definitely given the impression that they are a negative.
I’d say it’s amazing but it’s not.
