Obama’s Double Standard

Barry Obama is quite upset because the Republicans in Tennessee have used snippets of his wife in an ad. His wife Michell is seen making her statement about being proud of America for the first time in her adult life. On Good Morning America Michelle Obama was asked about it and Barry interjected (kind of lends itself to the Clinton supporters assertions that he is dismissive of women) and said that he is sure that Republicans would pour over every word he said and distort it but that his wife was off limits.

“I’ve been in public life for 20 years. I expect them to pore through everything that I’ve said, every utterance, every statement. And to paint it in the most undesirable light possible. That’s what they do.”

“But I do want to say this to the GOP. If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful. Because that I find unacceptable,” he said.

Obama praised his wife’s patriotism and said that for Republicans “to try to distort or to play snippets of her remarks in ways that are unflattering to her I think is just low class … and especially for people who purport to be promoters of family values, who claim that they are protectors of the values and ideals and the decency of the American people to start attacking my wife in a political campaign I think is detestable.” ABC

Barry, your wife made it acceptable to address her comments when she made them. She injected herself into this contest and by making her remarks she opened herself to criticisms of those remarks. If you think that your wife will run around making comments with impunity simply because you find it unacceptable then you are out of your mind. Your people certainly made no bones about attacking things that former President Clinton said. In this contest he is a spouse. Your wife’s comments are as open to scrutiny as his are and she will not get away with saying things and not being held accountable because you find it unacceptable.

Let us address another issue. You claim that Republicans distort or play remarks in an unflattering way and yet you ignore the very acts committed by your party. Where were you when Howard Dean and the DNC aired an ad that took John McCain’s words about being in Iraq for 100 years totally out of context. Where were you when this ad gave the impression that McCain said we would be at war for 100 years when the entire context, which is known to everyone, is that we would have established bases like we do in Europe and Asia and that he was OK with that as long as our troops were not being injured or killed? Where were you when Howard Dean defended the ad as an accurate portrayal of what McCain said?

Where were you Barry, when the newspapers and on air media were distorting what John McCain said about Hamas to give legitimacy to your point of view? Where were you when they left out a portion of the answer tot he question to give the appearance of a different answer that more closely resembles your point of view.

I know where you were in both instances. You were right up there with your party repeating the lies and deliberately distorting the truth for political gain. You were heavily involved in the deception and deliberate manipulation of McCain’s words as recently as this past week. You Barry Hussein, are a hypocrite. You cry and complain about the tactics of your opponents and ignore your own use of those very tactics. You are not a new politician, you are a charlatan, a poser, a deceiver and a lying coward who lacks the courage or ability to find fault in your own game before pointing at others.

Your wife made the statements. They are not snippets and they are not edited. She said it plain as day and it is obvious to everyone what she meant. Live with that or put a muzzle on her but either way I don’t give a damn what you find unacceptable.

Is it racist for the pot to call the kettle black?

  3. Good article.

    How can he possibly praise the patriotism of his wife, a woman who very clearly stated that the first time she was ever proud of her country was when her husband became the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination?
    That is just mind boggling.

    The hypocrisy really is strong in him though. I can’t wait until after the conventions, boy is that going to be fun.
