It’s the onion

Of course it is not real. Do you think BHO would go anywhere without his teleprompter? Maybe he would go somewhere without Michelle, but not without his teleprompter.

It is funny because the big ‘O’ is so teleprompter dependent. It’s sad because it’s so near the truth: We have a vapid, empty suit for a President who does not possess an original thought and hates America’s Constitution and exceptional people.

As always President Obama’s acolytes try to sell a lie before inventing an extravagant excuse for the lip syncing, concluding with the usual ‘everybody does it’ finale. If the President had any courage or a sense of humor he would have shrugged and laughed.

It is another example of there being no there there.

Do you think BHO needs a teleprompter when he and Michelle are alone at night?

What’s special about The Onion’s satiric “news” pieces is not just the production value but that they are so professional and serious about it. Watching Stewart or Colbert doing “the news” you know you’re watching a comedy bit. Seriously, I don’t know how the Onion people can do these stories with a straight face. It’s like watching network news, but in some alternate universe.

LOL! It’s so funny because, given O’Bunko’s silver coated lead tongue, it’s not much of stretch to believe it. I always get a good laugh when people say what a great speaker he is, or, as I like to put it, “at least he do speak good.” That, and more from The Onion, here..

Hilarious. I bit on it at first until the end of the video.

BB on March 8, 2010 at 7:03 pm

I am *so* bummed that this turned out to be fake!

Crap like this legitimizes Obongo and attempts to minimize his vicious, criminal nature and conduct by making him and his supporters seem “human”, “not beyond parody”, and relevant, i.e., someone that everyman can enjoy a good laugh over, then nobly defer to his position and seriousness; i.e., if you “get” this joke, you’re hip and level-headed and can discount deadly serious issues such as obongo’s systematic dismantling of our infrastructure, his inelligibility,true allegiences, unqualified and hidden backgrounds, etc. as realm of conspiracy theorist and kooks. This was all orchestrated by Obongo handlers and spin doctors with “The Onion’s” cooperation.

What a tragedy this little man is. He was sold with great hype to the black and guilt-ridden liberal communities as a black wunderkind. He is anything but. And as this commentary amply states, any time Barack Obama enters a room he is the least experienced and least qualified of anyone in the room. Because of this man there may never be another “black” president.

BTW. Hilarious piece. Great stuff.

Professor Thadeus Buggs????

LOL! Now HIM I might listen to…

Dave on March 9, 2010 at 11:10 am

you know his time is over when everyone is now making jokes about him. It was sickening how during the campaign and for most of his first year they wouldn’t even think of using him in a joke. Now he is the biggest punchline out there.

My favorite onion report is the “bring your daughter to war day”

ender on March 9, 2010 at 12:01 pm

now if they just had him dance a little jig like the simpson girl did on Saturday Night Live when she was caught. LOL

ender on March 9, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Funny! LMAO! And would not be surprised if there was more
truth behind this …

Terry on March 9, 2010 at 12:12 pm

Hey, he may be teleprompter-dependent, but at least he can read well, which is more than I can say for a whole lot of Americans I’m encountering lately.

PW on March 9, 2010 at 1:22 pm

Amazing. Some people here think that this is real. Haven’t they ever heard of The Onion?

Huis on March 9, 2010 at 2:53 pm

JL said, “Because of this man there may never be another “black” president.”

JL, you reminded me of a joke I heard former Living Color comedian David Alan Grier say. He said: “If Obama blows this thing, a Black man is going to have a hard time even getting elected president of the NAACP!”
