Poll: OOTY Prelims, Flight 8

posted at 8:01 am on December 24, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

We’ll finish up the OOTY polling this week and next with daily polls, so be sure to check in every day.  Yesterday, you added by “division” to the second semifinal with your choice, but only by a narrow margin.  Today’s choices may be just as tough:

Previous Obamateurisms of the Year:

  • Giving 2 minutes of “shout-outs” before getting to the Fort Hood shooting (2009)
  • Obama leaves Clinton at press conference podium on tax deal to attend Christmas party (2010)
  • “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president— with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln.” (2011)

For more on the history and end of the OOTDs, here’s my post from November 9th.

An ambassador is dead, he denigrates those who go to Vegas, so what does Dear Liar do? Goes to Vegas, baby!

What happens in Benghazi stays in Benghazi.

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Islam sucks and the prophet was a snake oil salesman. What will happen to my future for saying that, that could be worse than what is already happening because we have a moron for a President.?

The OOTY is him.

According to the WSJ, Obama is planning to use his inaugural and SOTU address to blame GOP if he doesn’t get what he wants. Boehner: “I gave you $800B in taxes. What do I get for that?” O: “You get nothing. I get those for free.”

The Count on December 24, 2012 at 8:29 AM

I hate him. I well and truly hate him.

Maddie on December 24, 2012 at 8:35 AM

I hate him. I well and truly hate him.

Maddie on December 24, 2012 at 8:35 AM

You are not alone.

Night Owl on December 24, 2012 at 8:39 AM

Obama pandering to Islam…again and again, and lying to all Americans about Islam, and a lot of other things as well…but always looking out to make sure that any Mohammedan is never brought to task for killing, maiming or any other violent act. Like calling Major Hassan down at Fort Hood a mere disgruntled employee engaged in workplace violence.

Imagine how things will be when/if Kerry is made SecState…Obama pandering to Islam, Kerry pandering as he always has to tinpot Leftist dictatorships all across the globe…and Valerie and Samantha calling the shots for both from the basement of the White House. Good times a comin’.

this poll is the best thing that happened to conservatives all year.

i’d like to nominate the incident during last week’s gop waterloo, when obama told boehner “you get nothing,” making boehner cry and humiliate himself twice afterward, first in front of his colleagues then in public. that was unnecessarily mean and may have had lasting damages on the speaker’s psyche.

Oh, This IS awkward. You have to pick something stupid or amateurish done by Obama or you can’t play.

Night Owl on December 24, 2012 at 9:06 AM

Viva Las Vegas

Philly on December 24, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Vegas, baby!

Though it was a difficult choice between Obama’s pandering and Obama’s panhandling.

Fallon on December 24, 2012 at 9:13 AM

Reading these Flights just infuriate me…

hillsoftx on December 24, 2012 at 9:14 AM

Vegas! He still makes me literally ill. I loathe him.

Key West Reader on December 24, 2012 at 9:14 AM

These choices should have been spread out. There are too many serious contenders for one flight.

I concur with Maddie, except to say that I hate the people who elected him even more.

SAMinVA on December 24, 2012 at 9:17 AM

No time for meeting with a real leader.

This was a tough round. The man is an idiot and a jackass.

backwoods conservative on December 24, 2012 at 9:18 AM

The future belongs to those who have the constitutional right to slander the prophet of Islam. And don’t you forget it you jug eared know-nothing miserable SCOAMT!

CitizenEgg on December 24, 2012 at 9:22 AM

In other news, Merry Christmas everyone

CitizenEgg on December 24, 2012 at 9:23 AM

What happens in Benghazi stays in Benghazi definitely the winner here.Having to wake up every morning knowing we have a corrupt, arrogant, narcassistic imbecile for a president makes me want to vomit.The scary part is his first term isn’t over yet.I have a strict rule at my house every Christmas, we do not talk religion and we sure as hell do not talk about the miserable SCOAMF in my house or you will exit my door.BTW Merry Christmas HA family.

jeffinsjvca on December 24, 2012 at 9:35 AM

Kudos. A horribly sad, morally corrupt and blatantly deceitful tagline, perfect for this president.

Looks like you get up pretty early in the morning

jeffinsjvca on December 24, 2012 at 9:35 AM

I disagree.

Benghazi is part and parcel of O’traitor’s ambition to advance Islam by stealth.

Therefore, his statement that “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” is more of a guiding principle of this disciple of Mohammad.

Make no mistake, this man is neither the Christian nor the Patriot that he claims to be, nor is he some garden-variety political thug from a rough and tumble city.

He has demonstrated that he is indeed evil incarnate.

turfmann on December 24, 2012 at 9:53 AM

So hard to choose – he’s hopelessly bad!!

Ed, will there be a final final – a vote on each of the past 4 year’s winners to choose Obama’s biggest amateurism of his first term?

ProfessorMiao on December 24, 2012 at 9:57 AM

Pimpin’ ain’t easy!

So, sesquipoodle says she’s just too stupid to know what the OOTY is about.
Must be that leftist “education” in action.

Typical.

Night Owl on December 24, 2012 at 9:06 AM

It’s OK. Just consider the poor things upbringing and “education”.

Then, pat her on the head, say, “There, there, dear,” and give her a lollipop to suck on. She’ll behave for hours.

That sort is easily amused.

Solaratov on December 24, 2012 at 10:16 AM

Another toughie but:

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Sounds like he’d like to do some ‘under the radar’ work on the first ammendment by way of a blasphemy law.

Can’t imagine why people had concerns about whether Barky was in fact an American.

CorporatePiggy on December 24, 2012 at 10:16 AM

None of these are actually amateurisms…they are purposefully evil moves by the biggest threat to US sovereignty that we have ever seen.

Jarhead68 on December 24, 2012 at 10:32 AM

None of these are actually amateurisms…

Jarhead68 on December 24, 2012 at 10:32 AM

That’s probably been true for over 90% of them.

Some of them, however, have definitely been because he’s a socially inept, uneducated amateur who’s in over his head trying to pretend to be a “world leader” (lol); and because he can’t identify with normal people, since he’s been an affirmative action baby since birth.

But, he’s just a puppet. What else can anyone expect

Solaratov on December 24, 2012 at 11:20 AM

Sorry.

This week I have to go with…

All of the Above

Tim_CA on December 24, 2012 at 11:31 AM

. that was unnecessarily mean and may have had lasting damages on the speaker’s psyche.

sesquipedalian on December 24, 2012 at 8:51 AM

…and when WAS “your moment ?…YEARS AGO!…sh!thead?

When one reviews the seemingly endless stupidity and crassness foisted upon this nation by Barack Obama, it’s almost impossible to choose just one example…. or to believe that voters could be so short-sighted and ignorant as to give him another term.

Unfortunately, most of the voters don’t read Hot Air.
