Politico Presents a Pornified Obama

Obama’s joke? – POLITICO.com.

Byron Tau, of the Politico perceived this statement made by Obama at a Los Angeles  LGBT Leadership Council fundraiser  in Beverley Hills on Wednesday night, as a joke.

From the Pool Report:

“Michelle outdoes me in pushups as well,” he said, after saying that she’s taken some criticism on her technique “because she doesn’t go all the way down” – a line that he let hang, naughtily, provoking laughter from the crowd.”

Obama quote from the transcript given at the Guardian:  by Oliver Burkeman

“I want to thank my wonderful friend [Ellen DeGeneres] who accepts a little bit of teasing about Michelle beating her in pushups – (laughter) – but I think she claims Michelle didn’t go all the way down. (Laughter.) That’s what I heard. I just want to set the record straight – Michelle outdoes me in pushups as well. (Laughter.) So she shouldn’t feel bad. She’s an extraordinary talent and she’s just a dear, dear friend – Ellen DeGeneres. Give Ellen a big round of applause.”

Mr Burkeman appeared to think that the remark was not intended to be nasty, and that  Americans are dirty minded.   However,  the Politico is a news organ of the WhiteHouse, and it is the vehicle by which this little gaffe was brought to our attention.

Buzzfeed votes with Politico on the matter, and the world is aTwitter with the news.

Obama needs to stick with his teleprompter. Every verbal blunder and misstep is going to be magnified from now until November.

Update: a video of the double entendre is below, along with Obama media apologists trying to take back what the Politico initially presented.

Highschools exhibit reduced enthusiasm for Obama commencement speech

» Obama Blames US High Schools For Dissing Him – Big Government.

Last year about 1000 high schools vied in a competition to have Obama appear as commencement speaker.

This year, as of  Feb. 22, there were only 14 applications very shortly before the deadline on the 25th….. so it must be that the schools are procrastinating.

Who wouldn’t want Obamanator as the commencement speaker, talking about himself again?   Pharmer hears that he needs a teleprompter even for that, to get the story straight.

The Whitehouse is extending the deadline to march 11, and trying to drum up some more applications.  By the end of February there were said to be 68 applications.

Sign of the times….. tells you more than any fake media poll.
