During his Wednesday appearance on Jay Leno´s "Tonight Show,´ President Obama made three factual gaffes; one of them involved the claim that cities not found along the Gulf of Mexico are. Were Obama a Republican, these gaffes would have led news coverage for the next forty-eight hours. Not only did most of the media ignore or downplay these gaffes; the Associated Press went so far as to cover one of them up. In its coverage Thursday, rather than point out the president´s geographical error, the wire service made it look as though no error was made.
Along with so many other American institutions the Left has corrupted the news media. Like their Obama the news media is not to be trusted. Newsmedia that can´t be trusted goes out of business.
And they´re hellbent... You´d think they´d take a look at evidence like the fate of Newsweek, the fire sale at WaPo and the pitiful ratings at MSNBC and buy a clue... Not when you´re hellbent, evidently.
They had to have given Obama the questions before he went on the show and rehearsed and the answers to them.He´s not interested in helping the economies of red states like SC anyway.But aside from that,either an advisor gave him the wrong area of the map or he´s totally ignorant of the geography of this country.I wonder if they even teach state capitals anymore.
To say there´s swimming pools in the winter Olympics is equally as ignorant.
While we appreciate their sympathy in not wanting to make him look stupid, this man is supposed to be the leader of the free world. He doesn´t know how many states are in the country that he leads and he doesn´t know what cities are in those states. He doesn´t know what it means to be an American. What else doesn´t he know? (Rhetorical question of course)
But let a Republican misspell "potato" and watch how they pounce on it like a pack of dogs.
These are the same "people" who accused Sarah Palin for being dumb for saying that she could see Russia from her house. She never said it; Tina Fey said it while making fun of Sarah on SNL. So many people actually believed it that it became a "fact" among voters. They ought to at least make Obama own his gaffes.
So, this is what one calls " worldly experience having lived for years outside of the US"? Experience in attending Madrasas , using words such as "gonna, wanna etc " and " not being smarter than a fifth grader"!
What is asinine is the Republicans have respect for this AP and other MSM. They still try to appease this group of liars as if they are the real honest media. They ignore the new media on the internet and give credence to the MSM. These news organizations are not legit. Real journalism is no longer done by the Post, the Times, CBS, NBC, ABC or CNN. The WH press corps is no longer legit. You Republicans in Congress, stop being intimidated by them.
The ap inserted an "interpretive phrase." As opposed to their coverage of conservatives where remarks are deliberately misquoted, selectively edited, taken out of context, and strung together out of sequence all in an effort to smear. The ap is a shameless propaganda arm of the left. Although I try to avoid c
What is even more amazing is too many Americans and illegals think these media coverups are just so funny and relish how the msm routinely likes to rub Obie´s political opposition´s nose in it. Don´t think for a minute that this kind of behavior is new or unusual. Been around for a long time. For those of us old enough to know, remember the msm´s biases of the 1960s, and as an example, the evening network news programs such as Walter Cronkite´s chronic apologizing for the USA´s role in Vietnam? And his glorification of Jane Fonda´s coddling and collaborating with the North Vietnamese?
How we got hoodwinked is the fact that "potatoe" is spelled two ways. As proof I have a carton here at home that at one time was used to ship Idaho Potatoes to market and is printed on the side clearly for any dimwitted to see as containing potatoes. This is the Republican problem, not fighting for their positions. Sure Quail corrected the little girl and I suppose some thought that was crue but we shouldnt let ourselves be headslapped without fighting back. I hold out little hope for the future of our country.
This is the best example of how the MSM use their biases to slant the coverage. They take a negative on the conservative side and make it a three day story while either failing to report or covering for a negative on the liberal side.
Over time it is very effective in coloring the minds of low information voters and inflaming the liberal base. Republicans seem oblivious to this tactic and fail to counter it. They just shrug their shoulders and walk away.
This president is a fraud from top to bottom. He is not educated, despite his Ivy credentials. He doesn´t know how to speak; he has not even a modicum of a good education; and he is a total moron and despot. This is the Matarese Circle sure and simple and if we don´t get to the bottom of who put this interloper in office we will never have another day of liberty in this country. He must go and the people that put him in office must be exposed and jailed. I hope the Koch brothers with their money and connection can get to the bottom of this infestation.
This is how the affirmative action Frankenstein was crafted over the years. They are all enablers for poor performance. This is how he got through college, early politics, etc. It seems to be a kind of pitty/sympathy and there is apparently nothing the MSM won´t do for him:
"Candy?", (lifeline please, since I used up phone a friend).
The loser does not deserve it-there´s no return on investment of lying, covering up just how ignorant he really is. This is why the countries problems have been compounded under him-he is a nothing. Not only does he score zero on performance, he´s deep into the red, - territory.
Got one to add to the Chicago-English: "You know" is pronounced "Yea-know".
Of course Obama is basically an ignorant man and "becuz" he uses very poor and incorrect English (just like the ignorant masses), the functionally illiterate voters think that they are just as smart as he.
I would love to see him on the ´Are you smarter than a 5th grader´ answering questions about American history or geography. But then we all know that the answer is an ´affirmative´ no if it were a ´fair´ contest .
It´s really quite amazing to watch the obsequious fawning, groveling, and outright cover-ups that the press, entertainment stars, politicians on both sides, and others shower on this pretender. Initially, they could have claimed ignorance or simply an overabundance of good will for a historic elected figure. But 5 years into his disastrous and truth-revealing presidency, what´s their excuse?
Have they no realization of how foolish they themselves appear for continuing to fall for his pretensions? Every single speech and mannerism of his is cringe-worthy. How can they not be embarrassed to continue the charade?
Liberals practice the most insidious form of racism. They believe blacks are inferior and must be given every latitude. Blacks are expected to make childlike errors for which the good liberal will coverup the deed.
Conservatives wish to treat blacks as equals. If they make a mistake they should pay a price just like everyone else. Only then will their total emancipation be possible.
Unfortunately, total emancipation is not high on many blacks´ list. Therefore they are willing to play the liberal game.
Asphyxiated Press - “Suffocating Truth Since the 1840s” - does it again! For example, the AP can always be counted on to bend over backwards in attempting to make BHO appear presidential. Time after time they attempt and time after time they fail. Think silk purse, sow’s ear.
The first step in a student´s education used to be to learn that you can´t believe something, simply because it´s in print. That was then; this is now: you can´t believe anything in print if it appears to be positive with regard to the political left.
Even in admitting the propaganda, AP refuses to simply point out the error. Just say those cities are not near the Gulf, and leave at that. They still have to opine that his intended meaning wasn´t clear.
If AP gave all gaffes an equal benefit of the doubt, George Allen may well have become a U.S. Senator.
Unless and until the RNC and ALL elected Republicans mount an intensive IO campaign - info ops - on TV every day on every network against these anti-American, socialist, lying pretenders, we are just whizzing in the wind on sites like these. I am about to the point of not posting anything any more. God help us!
I agree with the still, small voice of #16. What they did here was more or less standard procedure, and probably correct, because I am quite sure he is aware that these cities are not on the Gulf. Do I think they would have granted the benefit of the doubt and applied this standard procedure to a Republican? Maybe not, depending on the editors involved. *That* is the problem.
#33 - I second that! Additionally Liberals assume that Blacks need to be fed because they can´t make a decent living on their own. It is expected that Blacks need help getting into college (even if they don´t qualify) because of skin color. Think about that one for a moment. When you consider the fact that probably 95% of all colleges are Liberal in nature, it is a completely absurd assumption that the color of anyone´s skin should play any part in the acceptance process in such an environment, but White guilt and Liberal arrogance will do that.? Therefore it becomes natural for Blacks to take the path of least resistance by accepting all that free stuff that Liberals give them and Conservatives pay for. Yeah, we pay for it and are then called the bad guys! These Blacks are confined to the Liberal plantation and play the Leftist game. The democrat´s Ku Klux Klan could never hope to accomplish what today´s Liberals have managed to do!
Knowing your bodies of water that surround America is important, but personally I found his "57 states" gaffe far more chilling. Both are evidence of his mediocre education, that by some miracle got him into a top notch university like Harvard for free. I would love to hear a tape of that entrance committee conversation.
The first Affirmative Action president as well as the first totally socialist one requires propping up and extra tender care and handling?
This in itself implies inequality.
Hitliary as next prez due to inner city Chicago voter fraud which guarantees it may or may not turn into same all feminism, gays, or just the same healthcare, liberal courts legislating from the bench, samae old special iterest groups; corruption overlooked by the itself partisan and corrupt media, sexual harassment laws winked at, etc.
Make it easy on yourself, go to Wikipedia, look at Cleon Skousen´s 50 communist points list, contained in his 1950´s classic book, THE NAKED COMMUNIST. See Obama, his comrades Congress the protecting Diane Sawyer TV news actors, all of them as communists, and it becomes easy to understand. Just pretend they are all commies and it´s all clear. More oppressive government force and less individual freedom.....and endless debt
O-Bomber was born in a city on the Gulf of Oman or on the African Horn or maybe on the Cape of Good Hope and Change...
You know, the place we call "Honolulu"...
And when he traveled to Pockie-stan on some passport other than from the U.S., it´s because Pockie-stan is located in western Montana and anyone could make this mistake. The Montanans were very nice to the young man with the Indonesian passport... He had some money to launder, after all...
See? A Wannabe Kommie Dicktater can say anything he wants... the Ministry of Propaganda will clean up the quotes for the Emperor...
And... KommieKare will lower costs and save you money... You can keep your Witch Doctor... Oops! Little Afro-Lingo slip-up there... And, uh, Detroit has a Gummint Budget Surplus this year... Again! That´s fifty straight years of Budget Surpluses in Detroit!
The Liberal Left Media sees an opportunity to create a democrat dynasty by undeservedly elevating the Marxist socialist while essentially ignoring his ignorance and malfeasance. For such an "in the tank" media, "The Emperor´s New Clothes" are perpetually magnificent.
Obama is running from Obamacare to his zone of strength and core value: class warfare. Democrats are geniuses at playing on group identity. When I ask friends what principles lead them to vote Democrat, it is a hard question for them. After a baffled pause, I often hear this: "Republicans are the party of the rich." It is said as if that is all that needs to be said: not like me, exploiting people, bad for the country. Not my party. As the liberal Howard Dean says, many Republicans "have never made an honest living in their lives." Democrats have
Senate Republicans on Wednesday launched an around-the-clock talkathon over some of President Obama´s nominees in the wake of a new, Democratic-driven rules change last month that weakened the GOP´s ability to block nominations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., threatened to hold the Senate in session through the night to deal with 11 nominations, most of them non-controversial. Republicans retain the power to use up all procedural time, including post-cloture debate time on nominees. If Republicans refuse to give up their allotted debate time, the Senate could be in session continuously into Saturday -- or longer. "If we have to
CHICAGO-- Chicago will soon host a sculpture that’s both inspired and angered viewers around the world, reports CBS Chicago. CBS affiliate station WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports “Homeless Jesus” will be installed Friday outside the Chicago offices of Catholic Charities. Canadian sculptor Tim Schmalz said Pope Francis has blessed the statue, but two cathedrals have rejected his bronze image of Jesus on a park bench. “Imagine a life-sized figure totally wrapped up in a blanket, or a sleeping bag, with the only thing visible the feet of the figure,” he said. “If you look in the feet, you actually see
Alabama kicker Cade Foster has received a lot of hate since missing three field goal attempts in his team’s stunning loss to Auburn, but he has at least one fan: former President George W. Bush. The 43rd president reportedly sent Foster a personalized letter encouraging him to press on through life’s challenges. “Dear Cade (#43), life has its setbacks. I know! However, you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best. Sincerely, another 43, George Bush,” the letter reads. Foster posted a picture of the letter to his Twitter account Wednesday. Foster was inundated with
The Hollywood Reporter gathered some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry Wednesday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the 22nd annual Women in Entertainment breakfast to honor the Power 100 and present Oprah Winfrey with a leadership award named for former Paramount and 20th Century Fox exec Sherry Lansing. Lansing took the stage at the packed event, sponsored by Lifetime, Gucci, Samsung Galaxy, Audi, Roberto Coin, Guggenheim, City National Bank, the Gersh Agency, Loyola Marymount University and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, to speak about Winfrey, whom she called one of her personal idols. "You conduct your life in
President Barack Obama reportedly plans to nominate Stanley Fischer to be the next vice chairman of the Federal Reserve. The former Bank of Israel Chief would take over for Janet Yellen when she leaves the post to become Fed chairwoman. Fischer, a dual-citizen of the U.S. and Israel, served as the head of Israel’s central bank for eight-years before stepping down on June 30 of this year. Later this summer, the economist sung the Fed’s praises on the Charlie Rose Show. “The United States managed — although it is hard for Americans to believe — managed the crisis better than
Walking out of a private conference room beneath the Capitol Building on Tuesday, Republican House members looked tired. Not the typical "I-had-a-bad-night’s-sleep" tired but something deeper — a look of battle exhaustion. Unlike past meetings in the same place during periods of fever-pitched warfare with Democrats, it appeared — for the first time in a long time — the fire in their bellies that drove them to shut down the government and risk federal default, was, for now, no longer evident. These Republicans had just been briefed on a new, bipartisan budget blueprint that would establish long-term federal government spending
MIAMI- George Zimmerman will not face domestic violence charges because his girlfriend did not wish to pursue the case and there was scant evidence of a crime, a state prosecutor said Wednesday. Samantha Scheibe´s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence would have made the case difficult to prove, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement. "There is no reasonable likelihood of a successful prosecution," Archer said. Zimmerman, 30, had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 confrontation at the central Florida house he shared with
In a contentious exchange with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over her repeated claims that mandated health services do not raise costs for consumers in the form of higher insurance premiums, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) waved his hand in apparent surrender and said to her, “It’s like talking to the Republic of Korea or something.” Shimkus apparently was referring to North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the Communist rulers there spout pro-government propaganda that is then glowingly reported by state-run media.(Video)
"The journalistic bond between The Post and MSNBC just grew a bit stronger, as the paper’s opinion section announced that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will be writing a monthly column." So began Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple´s announcement Wednesday concerning the addition of the perilously liberal Maddow to the Post opinion page.Honestly, if you were the Post, would you want your relationship with the so-called "news network" considered by most to be the biggest farce in journalism to grow stronger? After the high profile dismissal of Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir, is this really the time to be adding
Christmas miracle or sickly sweet PR stunt? Either way, it´s unlikely these WestJet passengers care after they had their wildest holiday wishes granted during a flight across Canada. Travelers pitching up at Toronto Pearson and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airports for flights to Calgary were surprised when a virtual Santa Claus asked what they wanted for Christmas. A promo video sees a variety of passengers telling Father Christmas their dream gift.With their wishes made, the footage shows them merrily taking their place on the aircrafts.
Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, is under investigation for child pornography. The Republican Senator from Tennessee revealed Wednesday that law enforcement officers are searching Loskarn´s private residence. “I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” the Senator said. Alexander, 73, made the announcement on Wednesday, indicating he "was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office" of the search. The staffer has been placed on administrative leave without pay.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - 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. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
