Skip to comments.Obama Spokesman on Rodeo Clown: ‘Not One of the Finer Moments’ for Missouri
Posted on 08/14/2013 4:23:46 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
A spokesperson for President Barack Obama and the White House has weighed in on the Missouri rodeo clown who ignited a firestorm of controversy when he wore an Obama mask and taunted a bull to attack him. While the president has not offered his thoughts on the controversy, a White House spokesperson who is also a Missouri native said the incident was certainly not one of the finer moments in our state.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters that he could not offer them Obamas personal thoughts on the rodeo clown. The president is currently vacationing with his family on Marthas Vineyard. He did, however, express his personal regrets about how the incident reflects negatively on his home state.
The rodeo clown and the organization that hired him have apologized for the incident. The president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association has resigned and the clown has been banned for life from performing at the state fair. A number of state officials have condemned the clown and the NAACP has called for a full investigation into the incident.
Obama —— Not one of the finer moments for America
Bet they yukked it up when a clown used a Bush mask at a rodeo back in 1994 ....
One of those rare instances in which I agree with an obamist. Attacking a rodeo clown is embarrassing.
Tough shi!. I thought it was great and kept up the tradition. Problem is liberals have their shorts pulled up too tight and can’t take it.

Me and about 200,000,000 other people in America kinda differ on that opinion.
The pinkos can dish it out but they can’t take it.
The Democrats are reacting to the rodeo clown like Muslims to a cartoon of Mohammed.
nobama needs ridiculed at every opportunity...every opportunity.
Well you might be on the wrong forum then good buddy. Try DU....You might fit in better
The rodeo clown has evidently upset the a$$ clown. DOJ will probably file charges on the rodeo clown and clean him out in court.
They gave Tuffy the Clown a LIFETIME ban although his rodeo association stands behind him.
Obamacare means that the IRS can screw with him (audits, waitlisting for major surgery, death panels...).
They are now officially irrelevant. Close shop.
This is why comedians never joke about obama. It is career death for them.
Not one of the Filner Moment either Democrats.
I’d say it’s more like 200,000 Americans that agree with that position. Obama has been less than supportive of our nation’s heritage and constitution at every step and in every action; not just as President, but all the way back to his community organizer shakedown days.
Barack Obama has an opportunity to be classy BIG TIME here by chiding the folks who gave this clown grief and saying he has no grudge, why should they?
ROFL. These hypocritical hrumphing dingleberries will spend years on a nonsensical, politically correct "investigation", yet not a New York minute on whether their messiah is even eligible to vote much less sit in the Oval Office.
Stupid filthy bassturds.
FU Barry Phony Soetoro.
The problem in this land is a big time torpedoing of love.
God is love.
Connection is not rocket science. There is NOT a problem whether God wants to love us. There is a problem whether we want to love God. And God is stretching out the everlasting arms. Will we come to them again? Really we look very stupid here!!!
So the whole state of Missouri is at fault?
I think he has F’d himself quite royally already. Your sentiment is like trying to damn the devil; it’s redundant and thus, foolish. Except that Barack Obama is a man, just as much as son of Adam as we are.
“Stockman subsequently tweeted, If that rodeo clown had sexually assaulted a San Diego city employee Democrats would be defending him “
I LOVE this guy, Stockman!!!!
Add “Humorless” to the Articles of Impeachment.
The real clown is currently on vacation with his family.....
If anything they are at fault for not seeking to make peace between both parties. Let in some light for a change.
IMO, it is the liberal and WH response which is off base. They are an embarrassment to the nation.
Explain to me the difference between a rodeo clown making fun of a politician and one of SNL or any late night comedian doing he same. Aren’t they all covered under the first amendment ?
You really lived up to your name Show Me State Missouri. You really showed me something....spit.
I’ve heard the clown bit characterized as too much, going too far, being openly disrespectful. Guess what, that works for me. I respect the office of President, but not the clown currently occupying it. He has earned no respect (in fact just the opposite), and he gets absolutely no respect as far as I am concerned. So was it disrespectful? You bet it was, and bravo to the clown!
True, they are not even explaining context. Like I said it could even be viewed as sympathetic, “hey look at the angry bulls trying to get at Barack.”
Well I am praying the Lord that even this might be used as an opportunity to let some light into this dark place. God’s already shining. All we have to do is to quit being clouds.
Excellent and TRUE point.
Obama needs about ten million emails saying, “It’s a joke asshole”.
With ccc to Noah Rothman.
Listened to Beck today and he was hitting this perfectly.
The screaming Libs are making out that Obama is Mohammed and if we do not stand up and stop this shit now it will never stop.
This is going too far. When a clown cannot wear a clown mask and say a simple thing and then now have a niggra group wanting to file charges on him. What next.... a bullet to the head when someone says anyting against the ONE????
Like my tagline says. Time for all to look at that “line in the sand” and step over it. This has gone on for too long.
One the sure signs you are living in a totalitarian society is when you are no longer allowed to criticize or make fun of the leaders.
The FUnniest part is that dhimmicrats are calling for Mizzoo to leave the union over this, yet...
When Texans talk about secession, the progressives start singing govenment “uber-alles”.
These folks crack me up. And, when us Texans secede, we WILL win the decision!
These filthy scumbag rats are more upset about a Rodeo Clown than what happened in Benghazi!
YOu can’t take a joke.
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” —Voltaire
He is incapable of being classy. That would take character — and he has none. He’s a small-minded narcissistic banty rooster with a Napoleonic complex.
It’s all a diversion....Benghazi is starting to crack...
“Obama Not one of the finer moments for America.”
Exactly! They have the gall to criticize a rodeo clown at a state fair when a real clown is destroying the country in the White Hut!
