    Obama offered a reprise of one of his earliest gaffes on the national political stage... "[A] lot of those men and women who we celebrate on Veterans Day and Memorial Day come back and find that, when it comes to finding a job or getting the kind of care that they need, we’re not always there the way we need to be." Almost four years ago, Obama offered this on the campaign trail as a presidential candidate: "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the...

    ou can't make things like this up, but this unnamed man apparently did. From AP via My Way News (12/11/2013): Mandela ceremony interpreter called a 'fake' JOHANNESBURG (AP) - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela's memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa's government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages....

    As Twitchy reported, an increasingly desperate President Obama attempted to use an Organizing for Action conference call to deputize supporters as Obamacare pitchmen. Keyword: “Attempted.” Another Website, Another Problem for Obama Some supporters who tried to log in to hear the president defend his health care law could not hear him because the website of the group behind the call failed to work for them. Those who could hear the call learned from President Pinocchio that “more than 100 million Americans” have already enrolled in new health insurance plans. 100 million! Snort! Unreal and bizarre padding of the numbers is...

    MR. OBAMA: ...And one of the interesting things that we don’t talk about enough is the contrast between what’s happened in the United States and what’s happened in a lot of other developing countries, Europe in particular. SNIP MR. OBAMA: (Keystone pipeline) Well, first of all, Michael, Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator. There is no evidence that that’s true. And my hope would be that any reporter who is looking at the facts would take the time to confirm that the most realistic estimates are this might create maybe 2,000 jobs during the construction...

    Well apparently a president can’t just make new lows for respect of American moral authority in one single term and then let it go at that. Nope. Apparently after getting stiff-armed by our ideological enemies once in the first Obama term- turning his back on American values and getting called out on it- the administration felt the need to demonstrate crumbling American might and values by going back to that well early in the second term too. During the first term, we suffered the embarrassment of the Chinese Communist who publicly lectured Obama about straying away from capitalism and taking...
  • Obama: ‘When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal’

    Examiner ^ | 10/18/12 | Staff
    President Obama, during the taping of The Daily Show, discussed the Benghazi terrorist attack that claimed the lives of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. “Here’s what I’ll say. When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it,” Obama said per pool. “The government is a big operation and [at] any given time something screws up,” he also said, saying that he believes “you find out what’s broken and you fix it.” Obama promised that his administration publicized information about the Benghazi attack as quickly as it came in, which contradicts previous reports....

    President Obama continues to prove how out of touch he is with the plight of the American people under his anemic economy. No, Mr. President, the economy and the private sector are not "doing fine." Sure, Obama is pretending that he didn't mean it the way it sounded. But I am not buying that it was a gaffe. I watched the video, and he stated the point clearly and deliberately. Obama is an incorrigible leftist ideologue who believes that only his statist policies can stimulate the national economy. He thinks that without the prodding, deficit spending and wisdom of the...

    "The private sector is doing fine," President Barack Obama declared Friday at a news conference that was supposed to show that the administration knows how to make the economy stronger. It was a bad way to end a tough week. Wisconsin voters had rejected a recall of their Republican governor, and Bill Clinton had praised Mitt Romney's business record as "sterling" and called for a temporary extension of the Bush tax cuts. Then Obama made himself sound like GOP Sen. John McCain, who in September 2008 stink-bombed his election prospects by saying, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong." Team...

    Poles and Polish-Americans expressed outraged Tuesday at President Obama’s reference earlier that day to “a Polish death camp” — as opposed to a Nazi death camp in German-occupied Poland. “The White House will apologize for this outrageous error,” Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski tweeted. Sikorski said that Polish Prime Minister Donald “Tusk will make a statement in the morning. It’s a pity that this important ceremony was upstaged by ignorance and incompetence.” The president had been trying to honor a famous Pole, awarding a Presidential Medal of Freedom to Jan Karski, a resistance fighter who sneaked behind enemy lines to bear...

    The president referred to “Polish death camps” while awarding a posthumous Medal of Freedom to Polish professor Jan Karski, a hero of the anti-Nazi resistance. Poles believe they're blamed unfairly for the Nazi Holocaust, and the Foreign Minister led the outrage in a late night tweet. The remark, which barely drew notice in America, is all over the Polish news today. On the country's largest television station:

    Administration meltdowns are hardly novel. In almost every presidency there comes a moment when sheer chaos takes hold, whether self-induced or as a result of an outside crisis. Vietnam had effectively destroyed Lyndon Johnson by 1967. Watergate unraveled the Richard Nixon administration, as the disgraced president resigned in the face of certain impeachment. Gerald Ford could not whip inflation and was not re-elected. One-termer Jimmy Carter was undone by the Iranian hostage crisis and skyrocketing oil prices. For a time, it seemed that Ronald Reagan's second term might not survive the Iran-Contra scandal. George H.W. Bush could not be re-elected...
  • Obama Gaffes Recognizes Gov Jack O'Malley

    Gov. Martin O'Malley is not exactly a stranger around the White House these days. He met with President Barack Obama along with other state leaders late last week to discuss the economy. On Sunday he sat at the same table as the president for an annual governors dinner at the White House. He is a frequent guest on the national Sunday talk shows, usually defending the Obama administration's policies. So it was a bit awkward to see Obama forget O'Malley's name at an education event Monday. Sure there are 50 governors to keep track of, but O'Malley -- the chairman...
  • Obama gaffe: President says billionaires should pay ‘Jew’ tax rate [on Video]

    While defending his call for the rich to pay more in taxes, the president said he didn’t mind people calling him a class warrior for merely asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew. Whoops! The president meant to say “janitor” instead of “Jew,” and he immediately corrected himself. After all, he doesn’t need any more problems keeping Jewish voters enthusiastic about his re-election bid.

    Looks like someone in the White House press office needs to brush up on his or her U.S. geography. The press office issued credentials to those reporters and photojournalists who are covering the president’s trip this week to Washington state, California, and Colorado. The credential even provides a handy graphic highlighting (in white) which states the president will visit. The only problem? Wyoming is highlighted, not Colorado.

    Believe it or not, Barack Obama is cracking jokes about the horrific fires in Texas. I guesshe won't be using Bill Clinton's old line, "I feel your pain," when people complain about the terrible economy. How presidential, how empathetic: At a Silicon Valley fundraiser Sunday, the president took a jab at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, saying that he's a "governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change." Aside from the fact that this is just a cheap political shot at the expense of Americans who are suffering, it is just not funny and weird.

    Obama's approval ratings, now a record-breaking low among Jewish voters, are almost as pathetic as his ability to omit gaffes from his campaign speeches (every speech he makes these days is a campaign speech). Spouting to the Congressional Black Caucus this weekend, the President somehow managed to confuse "janitors" with "Jews." (LA Times) - When you start saying, at a time when the top one-tenth of 1 percent has seen their incomes go up four or five times over the last 20 years, and folks at the bottom have seen their incomes decline - and your response is that you...

    President Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus awards banquet over the weekend. Those folks will stick with him in 2012, of course. But they've been somewhat miffed in recent months that the first post-partisan president is doing too many deals with those Republicans and seeming to give in. So, Obama needed to give the crowd some presidential love. He even brought his wife along. As with virtually all of Obama's speeches recently, the Democrat's remarks dealt with selling his jobs legislation, as if it wasn't DOA on Capitol Hill. The first black president got to reminiscing about some other...
