Obama Campaign On Newt: 'The Higher A Monkey Climbs On The Pole The More You Can See His Butt'
BI ^ | 12-13-11 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 12/13/2011 10:13:51 AM PST by tcrlaf

President Barack Obama's campaign doesn't seem too troubled by Newt Gingrich's ascendancy to the top of the Republican primary polls.

Time's Mark Halperin reports that at a briefing for reporters today in Washington, Obama adviser David Axelrod said of Gingrich: "The higher a monkey climbs on the pole the more you can see his butt.

You can damn well bet that if anyone on the Gingrich campaign, or ANY other Republican said this, we would be getting hourly updates from the Obama-supporting Mainstream media screaming "RACISM!!!!!"

The Gay Mafia that runs the New York Times would be beside themselves with faked indignation, and NBC would be covering it as Breaking News, with hourly updates!

And the further a Kenyan sticks his head up his ass, the more you can see his colon.

What’s your point?

You can imagine if that was Newt’s campaign saying that about Obama.. monkey etc. Although “ass” would be an appropriate description.

How is referring to Gingrich as a monkey not racist?

And in so doing, Obama has revealed his strategy against Newt. He intends to poke him to make him lose his temper. Obama wants Newt to show his arrogance and temper. Newt needs to understand what this about.

This will help Gingrich and hurt Obama. Axelrod is over rated..the ONLY reason Obama won the last election is because the GOP split bigtime on McCain. McCain was mealy mouthed and did not carry the grass roots voters. Americans are FED up with Obama

Sodomites looking through their prism—always see everything as butts.

Zero and his men are sodomites who love homosexual cultures which always brutalize the boys. Pro-homosexuals are pro-child abuse. EVery homosexual culture is like the Middle East where women are hated and have noses and other body parts cut off and little boys are the “recreation” and fun.

Worldview is created by forcing evil pederasts like Harvey Milk as a “hero”....to young children. Forcing lies onto children when they believe everything presented to them. They form worldview. You are glorifying a pederast and sodomite—behaviors that are despicable in all Virtuous societies and making the Bible Hate Speech at the same time.’

Zero wants to spread muslim values and attitudes. That is why they chased moral behavior OUT of the military. Degenerates will force Christians out—they will be haters and “bigots” for their “worldview” and we will put in islam/nazi/marxist worldview where Might Makes Right (not God) and everything is moral—even using little boys like the muslims do.

Only asses and homosexuals speak of butts.

Me, I hear the word “butts” and I harken back to the days of my youth and those balmy Spring days on the Pariss Island rifle range, pulling butts (targets).

Last time I looked there were no caricatures of lily-white politicians that fit a “monkey” connotation. Nonetheless, if I were to say that Obama is the red-assed baboon, and we are treated to high detail shots of it, and his consort, almost daily, this comment will be pulled in a New York minute...how’s that for double standards.

“Last time I looked there were no caricatures of lily-white politicians that fit a “monkey” connotation.”

REALLY?? Are you suffering from memory loss? Or not born before 2009?

The Huffington Post was the host site for a column by a Harvard Phd entitled “New Scientific Study Reveals Bush is a Chimp”.

It would be interesting to see how many Democratic activists forwarded this column or any of the innumerable pictures and websites of Bush as a chimp (just google Bush and chimp and see what you get - 1,410,000 results), but that wasn’t news because it was “funny”.

Bush as chimp is funny, Obama as chimp is offensive. Just more media hypocrisy.

Yes, it is bizarre....but not for a Dem. I think Axlegrease was just explaining how he gets his jollies...looking at monkeys’ butts.
