Oh man, I thought that was the Donald at first. This is worse.

Zetterson on December 20, 2007 at 6:04 PM

I don’t know, Mr. Obama seems to have a bit more understated soul than Gregory. The spinning was a bit much.

robblefarian on December 20, 2007 at 6:05 PM

Does anyone know if the same audience moves from the View, to Ellen, to Dr. Phil, to Oprah, and then goes home at night.

Honey, how did you spend your day?

Kini on December 20, 2007 at 6:06 PM

That Bush dancing man video is two words: classic.

freakagriep on December 20, 2007 at 6:06 PM

She can’t sing and he can’t dance.

SouthernGent on December 20, 2007 at 6:07 PM

Better than I am. Think I’d damage some major organs and alter the earth’s axis if I were to try dancing.

stonemeister on December 20, 2007 at 6:07 PM

I wonder if Gregory knew the cameras where on him. If he did, what was he thinking?

freakagriep on December 20, 2007 at 6:07 PM

That’s all the proof that you need. Obama is definitely not black.

ThackerAgency on December 20, 2007 at 6:09 PM

freakagriep on December 20, 2007 at 6:07 PM

Hahaha. Exactly. Oh man, I hope he didn’t know he was on camera. That makes it so much more funny.

Zetterson on December 20, 2007 at 6:09 PM

Ah, that’s nuttin’. Go to YouTube and punch in a search for the Dancing AF Cadet. Now THAT’S funny!

Tony737 on December 20, 2007 at 6:10 PM

People please! Gregory has a groove and it was spot on!

Tru2my2 on December 20, 2007 at 6:11 PM

You know, I don’t know much about Gregory, so maybe he’s out loud already, but that was so teh ghey.

Editor on December 20, 2007 at 6:12 PM

I thought Gregory danced pretty well for a white guy who spends all day every day with a stick up his behind.

aero on December 20, 2007 at 6:12 PM

Do I want to watch this?

Next contestant on Dancing with the Stars: David Gregory and Helen Thomas.

Limerick on December 20, 2007 at 6:17 PM

who knew teh Gregory was Solid Gold. He must have frequented Studio 54.

Sultry Beauty on December 20, 2007 at 6:20 PM

baldilocks on December 20, 2007 at 6:13 PM

Go for it! It’s not “Dude” quality eyeball-bleaching fare by any means. Perhaps a little cringe-worthy, but entertaining nonetheless.

aero on December 20, 2007 at 6:28 PM

Actually, I think he dances pretty good. Better than most white guys I know.

Even than some gay white guys I know….

The Ugly American on December 20, 2007 at 6:30 PM

Hey, you can do internal damage if you bottle that up.

Let it out, man.

Besides, funky white boy dancing is cool.

TexasDan on December 20, 2007 at 6:30 PM

Obama would have been better if he’d Raised the Roof, or maybe did the Sprinkler. But there’s really nothing David Gregory could do at this point, on the dance floor or otherwise, that would alter my desire to hit him with a brick.

ReubenJCogburn on December 20, 2007 at 6:33 PM

Someone has a problem if they don’t dance to Mary J. Blige.

Nonfactor on December 20, 2007 at 6:40 PM

It’s funny, yet sad at the same time.

Rightwingsparkle on December 20, 2007 at 6:43 PM

Can you imagine Obama’s internal dialog when he walked out? “Can’t be too gangsta, but can’t be too whitenewscasta… Dilemma!”

Cuffy Meigs on December 20, 2007 at 6:47 PM

Cuffy Meigs on December 20, 2007 at 6:47 PM

That’s exactly how it happened.

Nonfactor on December 20, 2007 at 6:48 PM

Ahh, the full body dry heave, I know it well.

trubble on December 20, 2007 at 6:49 PM

I bet he normally wears an Indian Chiefs outfit when he does that.

TheSitRep on December 20, 2007 at 7:00 PM

freakagriep on December 20, 2007 at 6:07 PM

By that grin on his face, he definitely knew he was on camera. And, unfortunately, what was on his mind was the same thing that’s on his mind in the White House Press Room – I am all that!

eeyore on December 20, 2007 at 7:07 PM

I always figured gregory was a butt pirate. I guess he’s out of the closet now.

peacenprosperity on December 20, 2007 at 7:22 PM

And the church lady speaks,”Well was’t that special”. hehe

canopfor on December 20, 2007 at 7:28 PM

What’s so wrong with being able to dance? I’m not one for Donna Summer twirls, but he caught a little groove. Mary J live can do that to a person.

Ask any woman what she thinks when she sees a guy that can dance.

Dancing requires stamina, style and rhythm. If you’ve never been complimented on your dancing, then it follows that you probably have not been complimented on other activities requiring rhythm and stamina.

Also, being a white male does not preclude one from being a good dancer. All the white guys in my family can dance…especially the older ones.

And as far as the youngsters go, there really are no hard lines about those things which were once perceived as being “black” or “white.” Black kids skateboard and surf now. White kids rap and dance. Those are gross over-generalizations, but the point is clear.

Thankfully, the youth are less inhibited by staid cultural norms.

The Race Card on December 20, 2007 at 7:39 PM

Update: Advantage: Gregory.

Egads. You must be bugging. Gregory looks like he learned his dances moves from a frosh pledge @ a college sorority mixer. Please….

Less is definitely more, as Will Smith explains.

Advantage definitely Obama.

zb42 on December 20, 2007 at 7:48 PM

Whenever I see Gregory dance (and it seems to be more often than anyone would like) it leads me to believe he’s gay. And not in the “gay guys can dance” way, but there is just something about him when he dances that seems like while in his mind he appears hip, that in reality he’s letting his inner woman out.

By the way, “advantage Gregory”? Please, have you seen “Nathaniel” or “Seth”? A couple of favorite on The Soup… Sorry, this poor quality clip (someone filming their TV) is the only one on YouTube that incorporated Obama too

http://youtube.com/watch?v=OZOX5sad2FE

This one with Britney is hilarious as well

http://youtube.com/watch?v=L0D8HI1DM_M

The Soup uses that clip of that poor kid from some weird Nick Jr. show regularly, but I’ve also discovered that if you search around, YouTubers have made a hobby of putting his dancing video over rap music, etc. Some funny stuff.

RightWinged on December 20, 2007 at 7:57 PM

Can someone explain the pink thing he punched?

RushBaby on December 20, 2007 at 8:06 PM

Man! If you guys think he’s a bad dancer than I am screwed. Even after some a few J&C’s I don’t think I could move like that. God I’m white.

sweeper on December 20, 2007 at 8:33 PM

No sane man will dance!
period!
end!
fin!

TheSitRep on December 20, 2007 at 8:35 PM

Um…. yeah.

thareb on December 20, 2007 at 9:07 PM

Damn, that was a bad ass groove from Mary J’s group!

Hillary’s bladder

RushBaby on December 20, 2007 at 8:06 PM

It’s a charity thing. For each time someone punched Ellen’s pink punching bag during Breast Cancer Awareness month, $800 was donated to breast cancer research via the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I’m sure it had a theme like “Knock out breast cancer” or something like that.

aero on December 20, 2007 at 6:12 PM

Yep ! ! Sticky moves.

Texyank on December 20, 2007 at 10:43 PM

What’s so wrong with being able to dance?

Nothing. It’s when one is unable to.

Exhibit A: History Channel’s special on the sixties from last week–dirty, stinky, no-dancing hippies. It was a crime. :-)

baldilocks on December 20, 2007 at 11:44 PM

Is there a website called Looks Like Old Lesbians Dancing?

- The Cat

MirCat on December 21, 2007 at 1:38 AM

These are actually the only times I like David Gregory. He dances a little too much like a chick, but he’s not bad at all. If I ever get to the Washington prom (the press corps dinner), I’d dance with him.

marykatharine on December 21, 2007 at 11:32 AM

Attention, all white men: DO NOT DANCE!

That is all.

mojo on December 21, 2007 at 2:55 PM

Thanks for the laugh, campaign crankiness has been setting in. :D
