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 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.

      This website is the biggest joke I’ve ever seen. Continually downgrading someone that did the same thing that McSame did when he referred to Hillary’s health care plan. Obama was directing the remark towards McSame’s policies and the Rovians distort it and think it’s to their advantage. But the average American voter can see right through it and I promise it will backfire. WAit and see. People are tired of these kinds of politics.

      Following is a politically incorrect statement, which I am always politically incorrect on any side, uppity soul that I am…

      The true test of this campaign will be when Sen. McCain finally stops hiding behind the skirt long enough to see what new clothes the emperor is wearing(if any?) while engaging in a debate with Sen Obama tete-a-tete, then whisking himself back behind the security of the skirt once again. Kinda puts a whole new meaning of the wizard of Oz telling Dorothy etal “Ignore the man behind the curtain”.

      I don’t care at this point who wins the presidency, I’m having a good time with this reality show!

      Drill, baby, drill!

    3. Kay Zee Ess on September 10th, 2008 8:23 pm

      I am NOT and will NEVER BE tired of these kinds of politics. I HAD to say it and I did!

      #1. It was your guy who started “these kind of politics”.

      For Obama to have made this comment makes him one of the most foolish and unready to be Presidents ever. Unless you were under a rock the day that Palin gave her speech, everyone everywhere knows that Palin and her reference to lipstick and pitbulls are synonymous with her.

      For Obama to have made the comment shows his inexperience and lack of judgment. However, what should expect when the MSM has run cover for him for the past 18 months.

      Welcome to Obama’s John Kerry moment of voting for it before I voted against it.

      The idea that Sarah Palin has so knocked Obama off his game is down right comical. Heaven forbid how Obama would act when an enemy country knocks him off his game.

    5. Scared Monkeys on September 10th, 2008 8:30 pm

      Obama further proves that he has no judgment … that is what we have once again learned.

      What is most interesting is why is it that the crowd that Obama was speaking to though he was referring to Sarah Palin, yet the Chosen One did not?

    6. bushsucks on September 10th, 2008 8:47 pm

      Okay, who was McSame referring to when he made the same statement? Obama will sink McSAme. WAit and see

    7. Kay Zee Ess on September 10th, 2008 8:50 pm

      By the Bye,last post for now on this thread…

      As a male chauvinist pig, I take profound offense to the remark. He should have at least said “you can put lipstick on a moose, and at the end of the day it’s still a moose”.

      At the very least I would know he wasn’t insinuatin’ something else.

      Here you go..Check out this picture from a Democratic site.. 11 days ago of a pig in glasses and lipstick.. picture on the site.. Slip up really?

      ELECTION 2008
      Official Democrat website: Palin pick ‘lipstick on a pig’
      Posting with photograph of dolled-up swine made before Obama’s controversial remarks

      The official website of the Democratic Party has a blog posting entitled, “McCain’s Selection of Palin is Lipstick on a Pig,” illustrated by an altered photograph of a pig with makeup, designer glasses and pearls.

      “Palin is a red herring, lipstick on the Republican pig to distract Americans from the real issue that under the leadership of the Republicans the last 8 years, our country is falling apart,” writes the blogger, Elizabeth Berry, a self-described 49-year-old “progressive” from Texas.

      The posting was published 11 days ago, well before Sen. Barack Obama drew sharp criticism yesterday when he jabbed at Palin and Sen. John McCain’s idea of “change” by stating, ‘You can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.’”

      I think McCain and Palin do represent change but Obama just says what he thinks people want to hear without a clue as to how to go about anything…what has he really accomplished in his life that would benefit the American people…and what experience does he have to make him a leader for the United States of America….Commander and Chief, I think not!!!! Let’s get real, does anyone really think he is able to protect the safety of our country…

      He can’t think on his feet without flubbing it all up….

      Just when you think he has reached the all time low he gets worse…

      How many times has he made a statement and then said that wasn’t what he meant…???? He doesn’t even know how to communicate!!!

    10. Pigs for Palin on September 11th, 2008 6:41 am


      It would probably benefit him to get some experience as the mayor of a small town first.

      If you think about the many talented people in this country; enteprenuers, CEOs, true stars in every line of work – why is it that we have such a dearth of talent and intelligence in politics?

      If the whole world is watching, they’ve got to be laughing.

    11. Sarah on September 11th, 2008 10:53 am

      I find McBush’s righteous indignation about sexist remarks hilarious. This IS the same man who hurled off the disgusting Chelsea Clinton ugly bashes and the same dishonorable man who let a supporter call Hillary a bitch and LAUGHED.

      McCain is hiding behind his Trojan Mooses apron strings and now I firmly believe it’s not Moosalini Palin that needs McCain in order to speak it’s McCain who needs Moosalini for folks to listen. And NEITHER of them are saying anything. Moosalini has been reading her same speech from the convention for a week now.

      The Corpse and the Beauty Queen is one tired show.

      #11-Sarah—Are you enjoying your freedom while sitting in the safety of your own home while posting on this blog this morning?

      Got a question for you–Do you know the last time Obama was linked to 1960s radical William Ayers? Ayers who is responsible for the murders of AMERICANS and other extremist acts of violence?? He’s an awful person, Sarah. But he and Barrack are good friends.

      It was about a year and half ago, when Obama stood in Ayers living room, put his arm around his shoulder and told his friend he was going to run for President. He hasn’t spoken to him or seen him since. Hmnnnnnnnnnnnn…..

      Reverend Wright- 20 years- ANTI-AMERICAN, ANTI-WHITE !!!!!

      Doesn’t any of that scare you? No, but it should. Are you smoking CRACK, Sarah?? Pay attention to the FACTS and who is best equipped to LEAD THIS NATION BACK IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, NOT DESTROY IT. Pay attention to these vital things instead of what someone’s age is, and what they look like.

      How soon you forget, Sarah! Go play in someone else’s sandbox, today- you’re annoying and rude.

      GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Hey Sarah, I’d call YOU a pig with lipstick…but it’s obviously WAY too much of a compliment for you. Go back under your rock because when McCain and Palin win, it’s the only place where you won’t feel the CHANGE for the BETTER of America.

    15. Maggie on September 11th, 2008 3:00 pm

      Oh it… Noone disrespects Hillary Clinton more than her own husband and herself for putting up with him.

    16. Maggie on September 11th, 2008 4:05 pm

      Remember the words of one of Obama’s favorite rappers Ludacris..?

      I’m back on it like I just signed my record deal
      yeah the best is here, the Bentley Coup paint is dripping wet, it got
      sex appeal
      never should have hated
      you never should’ve doubted him
      with a slot in the president’s iPod Obama shattered ‘em
      Said I handled his biz and I’m one of his favorite rappers
      Well give Luda a special pardon if I’m ever in the slammer
      Better yet put him in office, make me your vice president
      Hillary hated on you, so that bitch is irrelevant

    17. caesu on September 12th, 2008 6:09 am

      i wonder what mccain’s next distraction is.

      every day there is no talk about how mccain isn’t any different from bush and how he has no answers to real issues like the economy – that’s a good day for mccain.

      and the MSM and SM takes to bait.
      but if he tries that a few more times it is going to backfire.

      Rick Davis, campaign manager for John McCain’s presidential bid, insisted that the presidential race will be decided more over personalities than issues during an interview with Post editors this morning.

    18. Maggie on September 12th, 2008 1:11 pm

      Great Caesu if Obama really wants to stick to the issues and ideas then why doesn’t he take McCain up on his offers for how many months now? of town hall meetings and debates? He has evaded it for months.. why? did he need to practice behind the scenes more for months, so he could say what some people want to hear? I am still waiting for someone to show me his accomplishments in the Senate and what has he done for Illinois other than vote present 130 plus times.

    19. SteveDinMD on September 13th, 2008 9:39 pm

      “Lipstick on a pig” is, in fact, something of a well-known metaphor. Nevertheless, it is obvious that Obama, through his remark, intended to ridicule Sarah Palin by drawing what he considered to be a witty parallel to Palin’s lipstick on a pit bull line given during her triumphant televised address at the Republican National Convention. Moreover, by continuing to defend his remark, he only digs himself into a deeper hole by allowing the public see him stubbornly defend a transparent lie. He should have simply and quickly apologized for an “honest mistake;” (dishonestly) claimed that no disrespect was intended; and admit that in retrospect he can understand how his remarks could be seen as insensitive.

      This was a major political blunder for Obama. For those who claim otherwise, consider this. What if McCain had criticized Obama’s new “Kill the Terrorists” policy using another well-known metaphor — “Monkey see; monkey do?” Does anyone in the World deny that it would have been a major story among the national media for weeks? McCain would have been relentlessly criticized and denounced as a “racist.” What makes Obama’s blunder, though, far more politically damaging to him than my hypothetical blunder would have been to McCain is the fact that Obama desperately needs the voters he chose to ridicule — white females. If Obama keeps this up, he’s going to be buried in the November election, and deservedly so.
