Bumbling Obama: ‘I Want to See Us Export More Jobs’

Posted by on Sep 26, 2012 at 6:11 pm

CBS says he merely misspeaks. With Obama, it’s never a gaaaaafffffeeee! And of course, he winds up blaming Romney, anyway. How precious. So he gets a pass from the crowd and the media. As someone once said, he’s like the special needs kid you’re not allowed to make fun of. How many days would we hear about this if Romney said it?

    The practice of liberalism is in the avoidance of accountability, for those they perceive as being incapable.

    That’s what the biggest danger was of electing Obama – 50 % of America won’t hold him accountable because he is a black man.

    Id like to see Gov. Romney outsource some Government jobs say the Dept. of Trans. to Mexico the post office to Columbia the Fed. Mint to China they ship a pure copper penny over here cheaper than we could make wooden ones we could in turn sell them to the scrap dealers and pay down the national debt.

    Well he gets more cover from a broader swath of media than any other politician in my memory. There’d be more to make of this I think, if he hadn’t recovered so (for him) smoothly.

    Let’s see him try to get away with it during a debate though. That would be noticed by a lot more people, when the guy you just slammed gets to rebut.

    First he has to fulfill his promise to “increase the inefficiencies in our health care system”…

    My, he does look tired. Poor, poor 0. It must be awful to reach your 50’s and have to campaign so hard after never working a full 8 hour day in your life.

    CBS apparently took down the video.
    You have to learn the lingo.
    A “gaffe” is apparently a true statement that is politically incorrect. “Misspeaking” is saying something so inane that it boggles the mind.
    Our President routinely says things that are so weird that they suggest that his talk is at least half disassociated from his thoughts. Thus his comments occasionally (perhaps once a day) sound like those of a half-wit.
    There is another strange thing about his campaigning. While for the most part it consists of personal attacks against his opponents and vilification of their morality, occasionally he announces that he favors all the things that the Republicans actually do support. This is usually done to an audience that is generally not much interested in politics.

    I tell people that I want a president that we don’t have to treat like a special needs child.

    I’m soooo tired of Obama’s nastiness. I can overlook the ‘exporting jobs’ gaffe since he immediately corrected himself, but then he had to take a swipe at Romney. He just never passes up a chance to get in a dig at Republicans, conservatives, Romney, Ryan, etc. He’s been doing this since he started campaigning in 2007 and it’s old and tiresome and extremely unpresidential. I honestly don’t know how he gets high ratings for likeability. He’s extremely unlikeable to me.

    I really like the special needs kid line. But I really am willing to give 0 a pass on this one. As lee says, he does look very tired.

    And… what was CNN’s headline about this story today? “Obama misspeaks, Zings Romney.” Well, at least the MSM are consistently predictable.

    It’s all good. Let him keep using this “outsourcing is bad” line straight through the debates, right up until the moment that Romney asks the SCOAMF whether he cooks his own breakfast, flys his own airplane, or builds his own limos. Then Romney can kindly explain to him how outsourcing creates efficiencies, and only somebody who fundamentally doesn’t understand business (uhh, Profit-to-Earnings ratio, anyone?) wouldn’t know the difference between outsourcing and offshoring.

    Apparently the President still thinks that ‘outsource’ and ‘offshore’ mean the same thing.

    Eeeeh, don’t try to build this one up too much – it won’t work. The guy misspoke, and immediately corrected himself. Then he worked in a ding against Romney.

    Is the ding fair? No. But trying to elevate this moment into an actual “gaffe” is counter productive.

    Focus on the actual issues that matter: Obama’s horrible foreign policy results, horrible domestic economic results, horrible “unity” results, horrible Presidency in general. This “gaffe” is not worth pushing, because it won’t yield any results.
