Is Obama Throwing Press Under the Bus … Obama Just Won’t Let Lip sticking a Pig Comment Go … Palin is Lipstick, McCain policies are Pig
Now for the latest spin from Barack Obama regarding lip sticking a pig. How is it that a day later he has an entire analysis on the sentence that he claimed yesterday had nothing to do with Palin?
Now Obama claims the “lip stick” comment is a Made Up Controversy … Ahh Barack, You are the One who Created It
It get’s even better, Obama throws the media under the bus.
“Keep in mind, that technically had I meant it this way she would be the lipstick,” Obama said. “The policies of John McCain would be the pig.”
Barack Obama put his foot in his mouth when he uttered the comment yesterday, “You can put lipstick on a pig, … “It’s still a pig.” A day later and Obama is still making her deliberate screw up news and defending his comments. Is this man ignorant? Let it go, take your lumps and move on. However, the Obamamessiah feels the need to further explain his ignorant and thoughtless comments on the Letterman Show according to the Politico.
LETTERMAN: Let me ask you a question here, have you ever actually put lipstick on pig?
OBAMA: The answer would be no. But I think it might be fun to try …. This is sorta silly season in politics. Not that there’s a non silly season but it gets sillier . It’s a common expression in at least illinois. I don’t know about in New York City. I don’t know what you put lipstick on here. (Silly cringe from Letterman. Laughter from audience) In Illinois, The expression connotes the idea that if you have a bad idea — in this case I was talking about McCain’s economic plans — calling them ‘change,’ calling them something different doesn’t make them better. Hence lipstick on a pig is still a pig.
Obama claims that this is a made up controversy by the media. That is correct, The Chosen One” is biting the very hand that has fed him to a Democratic Presidential nomination. As Stop the ACLU states, the MSM holding Obama accountable, this is uncharted territory.
Once again when Barack Obama’s back is up against the wall and he is in dire straights of good news for political expediance, Obama now throws the MSM under the bus. As Town Hall.com points out once again Obama is presented with a test of his character and he fails miserably.
That’s because it’s offered voters an insight into his character that isn’t flattering. For most of his grown up life, the chips have always fallen his way — whether it’s been his state senate campaign, his US Senate campaign, or his presidential primary campaign. It’s easy to seem like a nice guy when people are acting like you’ll be elected president by acclamation.
The test of character, however, is how people respond when the chips are down. We know how McCain responds — he proved it first at the Hanoi Hilton, refusing early release. On a lesser scale, he proved it again in his determined, persistent and ultimately victorious primary campaign.
The Right Wing News pretty much sums Obama up, for a rookie politician, his act sure does seem to be getting old and tired.
