I just don't understand how soemone would find these statements bothersome in 2011 but not in 2008. The thread seems disingenous.

Everyone, who is a Public Speaker, will make mistakes every once in a while...

From President Obama, to the Republicans on the "ITS ME-ME-ME TOUR"
Public speaking will always have thier blunders

Look at Steve Jobs, when he introduced a new item, and it wouldnt work, because everyone was using thier WiFi's at the plac, and no bandwidth for him LOL... Now Thats embarrasin

I dont criticise President Obama for his Gaffs... Just his policies and what he has done to our Country.
Im still fuming over the "Apologise for America" tour he made!!!

I wish you well...

Jesse

If you look at the poll numbers you will find there are a lot of "disingenuous" people who voted for Obama but will not again. Obama's poll numbers are in the toilet.

Heritage Member,...I particularly like this linked video regarding a child with asthma. Obama tried to handle it without the teleprompter, but failed miserably.


Obama lost without a teleprompter - YouTube

Ad lib, or off-the-cuff remarks gives a glimpse into the workings of the political mind. I find that Obama's "spread the wealth" comment, along with the "can't I just eat my waffle",....and the "i've already answered like eight questions" very enlightening.

"If you like your health plan, you can keep it."

Oh, wait a minute, that was a well-scripted lie, ON the teleprompter. Never mind.

The thread is not about not voting for Obama again, or even about approval, it's about having an issue with comments he made before and during his campaign, and the use of the teleprompter. So I ask again, why would someone not having any problems with those comments on election day, but you have problems with them now??

That one burns me, because I loved my Cadillac plan that I paid extra for but lost it. Thx Obama.

1) The thread is not about what you say it is about. It's simply a good chuckle thread about funny, wrong or stupid things Obama said.
2) It was already answered why the difference from then until now. If you choose not to believe it, so be it. I really don't care.

From Obama with Love. No teleprompter on this one. And paraphrasing.


"Americans are Lazy".

This game would be better if we played it with Dubya.

Things that you didn't have a problem with before, or maybe you did but aren't being truthful.
