Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:01 am on October 2, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Last week at the UN, Barack Obama made an appearance at the UN — and then blew off the world leaders to make an appearance on The View. Of course, his presence on this talk show was critical — right?

Referring to himself as “eye candy” … well, that makes one person who thinks of Obama that way.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at obamaisms@edmorrissey.com with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.

Just in case no one has complained on thread about this yet. The site is doing a log off crash on the iPad thingy every four or five refreshes. Sorry for the off topic post Ed. Wasn’t able to / Can’t email to the tips.

He’s about as much eye candy as Roseanne Barr is Playboy Playmate material.

C’mon, really. Who looks at this guy and says “Wow, we really made the right decision in 08!”?

The only thing an Obama presidency achieved was making the anti-war nuts invisible.

Historians will take a colder more clinical view of this guy’s every statement, speech and stuttered strategy and wonder what was in the water that could have made enough people lose their minds to put this untried, untested and unready poseur into the highest office in the land.

Eye candy…phhhht!

He didn’t have time to meet world leaders. Mooch said if he doesn’t win this election she’ll deep fry what’s left of his Johnson and bury it with the last dog he ate.

CorporatePiggy on October 2, 2012 at 8:21 AM

Humble Obama: Romney is good ‘eye candy’. I’m just OK.

Fallon on October 2, 2012 at 8:22 AM

Candy = empty calories

Obama = empty suit

Mitoch55 on October 2, 2012 at 8:25 AM

Obysmal: “I (am a) candy ass.”
That’s why he has to cross his legs like the wimmens. Who else but the shrews on the couch and the brain-dead in the audience could tolerate his schtick?

One Border Patrol agent has died and another has non-life threatening injuries following a shooting near Naco, according to a Border Patrol spokesperson.

Both agents were assigned to the Brian Terry Station in the Tucson Sector.

The injured agent has been airlifted to a hospital. Names of the agents are being withheld until next of kin has been notified, Border Patrol stated.

The investigation is being led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office. Tucson News Now

If these shooting were done with a Fast and Furious weapon, Holder will make sure they weren’t, IYKWIM.

Here’s hoping the FBI shows a tad more bit initiative in getting to the crime scene than they did in Libya.

Obama leads Romney 49-45 percent in new Quinnipiac poll. Again, Obama is at that 49-50 percent mark. Incumbents don’t lose being in that spot a month away.

Ohio Yahoo News Female voters respond……….”did you hear?……he partiies with Jay-Z and Beyonce!!”.

“He is so cool.”

“Hey, when do we go down and get our Obamaphones today?”

PappyD61 on October 2, 2012 at 8:37 AM

Our country desperately needs real leadership right now. Even some Lefties must realize that Obama is not a leader, never has been. He’s a celebrity and hack ideologue.

Don’t bother, I reminded it of that yesterday, this was his response:

An incumbent consistently polling at a 49-50 percent level (which Obama is) is very different from one mired in a 45-47 percent range, as Jimmy Carter was. Common sense just eludes you guys.

Univision has throw 10 or 20 gallons of gasoline on the smoldering embers of “Fast and Furious” and CNN is suddenly all concerned with Ambassador Stevens Death and apparently concealing the rumor that the US Embassy in Libya was involved in supplying Al Qaeda with weapons and both of these suddenly uber important stories coming out right after Defense Secretary Leon Panetta admits to losing track of a significant quantity of Syria’s Chemical Weapons, which apparently are now in the hands of Hezbollah/Al Qaeda.

Hold on tight folks, this ride looks like it is about to get wicked bumpy…. (Yes, that was an allusion to Obama’s reference to dead bodies being “Bumps” in the road”…

Polls, smolls. This one is coming down to who gets off their butts and actually votes. I suspect that all Barky and his minions in the media have done is convince a great many of his subjects that their votes aren’t needed. They’ll be more than happy to let someone else do the work of dragging his sorry a$$ over the finish line. On the other hand, there are 10′s of millions of people chomping on the bit to give him a one term pass to retirement. And those 10′s of millions aren’t just Tea Party’ers.

1. Tell them Stop and Drop your weapons.
2. If they fail to comply or open fire, light ‘em up.

Canyon secured.

Arguing numbers that are within the MOE says more about you than it does polls.

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on October 2, 2012 at 9:24 AM

Eye candy? No. But he sure has given plenty of his past supporters an eyeful…and they’re not seeing what they thought they were getting.

Get over yourself Mr. Obama. Lots of voters have.

Note to Obama: If you have to say you are eye candy, you ain’t.

Owe’s supporters watch the View. They certainly don’t keep up with hard hitting media reports on the UN – because there aren’t any.

Pollster under oath

Pat Caddell on O’Reilly:
“Whether its organized or a straight conspiracy and we have gone down a slippery slope here. Look Bill, we’ve had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. And it’s gotten worse starting in 2008. But now weve got a press that is actively engaged in a reelection  putting out a narrative that Romney is a loser, they’re running polls& But Romneys not my issue here. More importantly they not only decided to support Obama. On this issue the last two weeks what we see is a press that has decided that it will not tell the American people the truth.”

mpthompson on October 2, 2012 at 9:11 AM

Do we really think The Blessed One will go quietly into the night after just one term? IF he loses, he’ll be running again in 2016. And IF Romney isn’t able to turn things around, 2016 will be a takeover, not an election.

Nutstuyu on October 2, 2012 at 11:06 AM

Eye candy? No.

Sure he is. And those older white guys at the Chicago bath houses can’t wait for his return in January 2013.

What an embarrassment to the Country! No wonder everybody else in the world thinks they can spit in our eye (and kill an ambassador) without consequences. Our dear leader is “eye candy” on a piece of trash, TV program for God’s sake!

I’ll bet money he won’t. His ego couldn’t take the hit.
