Video: Obama says he does whatever Michelle and Joe Biden tell him to do

posted at 3:40 pm on February 13, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Oh, how I love a good quip taken out of context! This destroys the theory that the president decided in favor of the contraception mandate as a knee-jerk reaction against anything and everything Joe Biden suggests, though — and that was the one theory that I thought cast the president’s incredibly poor judgment on an important religious liberty issue in a somewhat sympathetic light. In general, I’d have a knee-jerk reaction against anything Joe Biden suggests, too. But that’s not what Obama is telling us is the case here. As for Michelle, I’m fine with him following her eating advice, but would strongly encourage him to ignore her fashion advice (h/t Greg Hengler).

Paul-Cincy on February 13, 2012 at 3:54 PM

As if we didn’t already dislike who’s running the country.

Please…

This is a real pet peeve of mine every time I see it.

The president doesn’t “run the country.”

He runs the executive branch of the federal government.

I’ll point out that since I’m not in the military, he’s also not my “Commander In Chief” either. That one always grates on my nerves as well.

Obama says he does whatever Michelle and Joe Biden tell him to do

And out of that circle of (Brain) power we get ObamaCare, Solyndra, Fast & Furious, $15Trillion in debt, Canada selling Oil & Uranium to China…

And yet, we have people that believe we cannot beat this Administration just by showing his record of successes, let alone his failures of policy?

/banging head against wall

BlaxPac on February 13, 2012 at 3:55 PM

Obama loves for people to think he’s influenced by people who have “semi-decent” poll numbers/likeability. It’s another ploy by the greasy slimeball, Axelrod. Frauds.

so that would be pu@@y whipped times 2?

for the longest time i have viewed barry as someone with hints of narcissistic personality disorder. while i now do not entirely discount this , sometimes his behaviors(he seems like an automaton, a robot much of the times in public, flailed about by other forces, by those with personalities much stronger than his)- are at odds with this. he seems more and more like a co-dependent of someone with a more severe form of narcissistic personality disorder.

dear goddess, i think he’s someone’s biatch which means we are all,collectively, in thrall to the same personality dominating barry.

it’s just gross…this psychodrama gets sicker the longer the barry borg are in office. it’s going to end in something much worse than tears. it’s long past that point.
