Love the Change and Bipartisanship


WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Obama took a lighthearted jab at Republicans Saturday after a nearly 35-minute press op with Brazilian President Lula da Silva in the Oval Office.

It came when a Brazilian reporter asked him whether he planned to visit the Amazon. Obama joked: "You know, I would love a trip to the Amazon. I suspect that the Republican Party would love to see me travel through the Amazon and maybe get lost."

Obama said he was looking forward to visiting Brazil, though no dates had been set.

"I will tell you that because I'm somebody who grew up in Hawaii, I felt it was very important that I at least go to Rio, where I understand the beaches are pretty nice."

Wasn't he born in Hawaii?

As far as the crack, yet another pass from the media.

Ugh. What an asshat.

The President of Brazil needs to go back and get MagTech working full time. We need the ammo.

Z said...

Did he joke about Republicans wishing he got lost in front of the Brazilian and the entire press contingent? Nice, eh? #*$&@#(

I'm SO SO SICK and tired of his constant crap like this......a real first in the annals of presidencies, isn't it? And how many presidents have said they're looking forward to going somewhere for the beaches? How about "for talks on trade" .......it's all about him, isn't it.

Ya, the guy who "grew up" in Hawaii (who KNOWS where the heck he was BORN, as Chuck said) and has to have the heat on in the White House because he's from there, as if he didn't spend the last TWENTY YEARS acclimating to snowy cold Chicago. What a PHONY.

He's as bad as the idiotic Dixie Chicks that went overseas and bashed America after 9/11. He has absolutely no class or respect for the office he holds or the country he holds it in.

Why, I'd love to see him get lost in the Amazon, and see a great big snake with sharp fangs lock down on one of his asscheeks.

Come on folks, who would be more comfortable walking along Ipanema, Michelle Obama or Laura Bush?

Man...(laughing/crying as I type) what a terrible President.

The Merry Widow said...

ducky-That's NO endorsement of the obama's dignity or class...they have NO CLUE as to HOW to conduct themselves as befits the first family.
Edge-Not so much terrible, as they are "fronts" for the REAL powers...
G*D bless and MARANATHA!

tmw
I'd rather have Laura Bush, SHE IS A LADY...

Where does this term 'asshat' originate? I'd never heard it until I was called that on z's blog.

Papa Frank said...

Sue -- I believe it's another way of saying that "you've got your head up your ass."

sue said...

papa frank - you have made my day!
First the outstanding quartet, and now the explanation of asshat. I'm afraid I'm going to laugh way into the night. I'm going to check your blog more often - I need to laugh more. Thanks.
