Obama Forgets (“Forgets”?) Something

posted by on July 11 at 1:08 AM

I am of the opinion that dude just spaced out, truly just forgot to say it, but if this were an alternate universe and Hillary were the nominee and she had done this to him… well, I have to admit, I think I would be of the opinion that she “forgot.”

The Los Angeles Times:

At a fundraiser Wednesday night in New York City, Barack Obama intended to ask his supporters to help pay off the campaign debt of his former rival Hillary Rodham Clinton.

But there was a problem: He forgot.

The Illinois senator delivered a fairly typical stump speech. Then he thanked the crowd and walked offstage.

A minute later, he dashed back on. “Sen. Clinton still has some debt,” he said sheepishly, as the audience cracked up.

He didn't forget, that's some comic timing right there.

More importantly: he remembered before it was too late. :)

Not as bad as how the SLOG forgot that it's pro-socialist and pro-communist blatherings actually cause suffering to real live human beings, on some level. Or how the SLOG forgot to tell you that the people running the SLOG are in bed with the international central bankers.

Very bad. Especially since this is Seattle. Well, that's why the SLOG was purchased to do this, actually.

"in bed with international central bankers"?

Someone if off their meds, and it ain't me...

What an ass!

fluteprof is talking about himself in the second person again. (Google "fluteprof" if you're not familiar.)

This isn't malicious laughter. He finished his speech, forgot something, and went back to say it-- he could have saved himself the trouble and waited until his next speech in a few hours. That's funny.

Toby, have you ever been in bed with an international central banker? They're, like, insane lovers.

Why should he pay down her debt...especially when 95% of it was inured after it was mathematically impossible for her to win.

I 'm surprised ECB didn't turn this little diddy into some misguided rant about how Obama is some sort of misogynist pig for forgetting to acknowledge Clinton's burdensome debt on the podium.

How much of her debt is owed to Mark Motherfucking Penn? Or does he always get first cut? Or to one of the other Fox News asswipes who ran her campaign?

We won't support ball-less NO-Bama and will re-defeat him in November!!!

Doesn't re-defeat imply that you defeated him already?

I'll tell you what I never "forgot" enormous whozeewhatsit!!!

Isn't Mark Penn owned something like 11 million dollars? What did he do for that kind of money anyway?

Oh, and if Clinton really "has" 18 million voters, as opposed to having received 18 million votes, she should be able to pay off her debt all on her own.
