Happy Cinco de Mayo … Or if you are the Great Orator President Obama … “Cinco de Cuatro”
Feliz Cinco de Mayo
Barack Obama wished every one Happy “Cinco de Cuatro”. Huh? A Happy 5 or 4. What is this new Obamanomics or another catch phrase for his latest bank bailout plan?
Sometimes, no pretty much most of the time armatures should leave the jokes in the hands of the professionals. Point proven yesterday when President Barack Obama celebrated Cinco de Mayo a day early and botched it up royally. What is once again telling is that the AP in their article tells us what Obama meant to say. How do they know? Why is it that the MSM continuously apologizes for this Administration telling us after each gaffe what they really intended?
President Barack Obama is celebrating Cinco de Mayo a little early.
On the eve of the Mexican holiday, Obama on Monday had an event in the East Room of the White House with Mexico’s Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan (sahr-oo-KHAN’).
Obama joked that it was “Cinco de Cuatro,” botching a play on the Spanish word for “four” when he meant to say “Cuatro de Mayo,” or the Fourth of May. He tried again, but he still did not get it right.
Not only can’t President Obama speak Spanish, as Jammie Wearing Fool points out, it appears his teleprompter cannot either.
Oh yeah, and Bush was the idiot. Funny thing is, at least Bush can speak Spanish. As far as I know, Obama and his Teleprompter only speak English. No doubt the cerebral titans over at MSNBC and The Daily Show will be yukking it up over this gaffe.
Exactly how many times is the great orator or as The Weekly Standard states, the man with the overblown reputation as the most cerebral, eloquent, utterly erudite president of all time going to continually fall over his words? His speech is supposed to be his strength, he is a rank amateur with everything else. However, we are supposed to believe that Obama is cerebral because he and the media tell us so.
We would like to in addition to Protein Wisdom wish everyone a … Feliz Cinco de Cinco!

I heard that the Mexicans are renaming the holiday “Cinco de Negro” or “Quatro de Negro” or something.
Red – where is the story about the investor for Chrysler came out today and has reported that the White House bullied him into taking billions of dollars in losses and accepting the bankruptcy or he would be destroyed by the White House? It has been all over Fox, of course not on any of the MSM channels. More have stepped forward to tell the same story of the arrogance in the WH!
“Arrepentido para el screwup, mis amigos mexicanos. ¡Soy justo un inmigrante keniano pobre!”

Sorry for the screwup, my Mexican friends. I am just a poor Kenyan immigrant!
This latest O’f*ckup would resonate around the world for months, even years with the MSM if Bush had made that gaffe!
Was President Urkel in the 56th or 57th state when he said that?
Funny that SM should even be concerned over a Mexican holiday… Sounds more like attack the President at all cost.
Maybe Obama speaks the international language that matters not if you get the words right and pronunciation means nothing.
As for Bush, his words were always the same in any language…. if you could understand them. Attack, Kill and Torture all Prisoners! Oh yeah, and ‘god bless america, especially, the rich ones’. And who could forget the most famous of all, while America sat on the edge of their seats trying to read his lips… “Trust me”.
Wow, a slip of the tongue and you write a whole article on it. How petty. Get a life.
Obowma can say ‘Sicko de MeO’ and
be correct. Phony to the core is an
Please pass the Pepto Bismol!
I saw a sigh the other day that said: Need help call Jesus 888-444-1234 So out of curiosity I call it and one hour later a Mexican lad showed up with a lawnmower.
B.O. is a moron. When will the idiots figure it out? Keep defending him if you want but we will have the last laugh when we say “I told you so” “don’t blame me I voted for McCain/Palin.”
Red, I think you have struck a nerve with the libs again.
barack urkel ha! ha!
#7&6 pure democratic propaganda. surely you could copy something worth reading.
oh, i forgot democrats are now dependent on teleprompters since their chosen one sleeps with his.
poor michelle probably has to sleep with bro the dog.
first the right attacked him for being such a good speaker but they said his words were empty.
and know they attack him because he supposedly mispoke a few times. LOL.
they must have been vast asleep for 8 years with this GWB who couldn’t even utter one sentence without messing up.
no only he couldn’t speak, he made all the wrong decisions.
bringing the US to its knees on all fronts.
the right should be grateful that the American people have elected Obama who is doing all he can to repair the damage made over the last 8 years.
but instead, they continue with their pathetic
attacks, which led them to lose the election in 08.
and will led them to lose the next elections too.
keep it up!
Here’s just a few classic “Bushisms”.
It must just piss you off #10 that a “moron”, as you say, kicked the crap out of your republicans to become the President. A landslide victory. A resounding, embarrassingly laughable rout.
Now stop posting and go back to making sure food is on the table for your master aka husband.
Just in case you don’t have your bible with you #10:
Ephesians 5:22-24: “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife…wives should submit to their husbands in everything.”
#12 & #13 You guys are so funny, can’t come up with anything original I see. Still clueless…How pathetic.
What pisses me off is people like you & caesu & the other morons that voted for this ass clown. I don’t mind working & paying taxes but I do mind B.O. telling me how to spend my money and taking money from the hardworking Americans to give to the worthless with their hands out. I guess you like having the government run your lives, not me, I can think for myself and don’t have to be told what to think, what to say, what to do.
You guys keep defending this moron, must be that he makes you feel smart. That’s a shame you have that as a role model. Poor little Mickey, he need blankie. Now run along little troll, I’m sure it’s past your bedtime.
The teleprompter is obviously no match for
the acumen of Mrs. Clinton when delving into
projects they have no experience in. Obowma
was made to look stupid in his attempt to be
funny with the Cinco de Cuatro flop, and Clinton
appeared stupid with her ‘Peregruzka/Overcharge’
gaffe. Coupled with her ‘..don’t feel noways tired’
hymn recital, Hillary is numero uno.
#14 – Who do you address that Social Security check to that you send back to the government every month?
What I find moronic, as you say, is someone such as yourself saying you don’t want the government to run your life…but you want the goverment to legislate others such as a woman’s right to choose, SSM, the list goes on.
“I want the government in your life but out of mine” say #14.
Please #14…your hollow diatribe is laughable.
#16 Hmmm Yo Yo, when does the baby get the right to choose? Strange you don’t seen the difference between the government interfering with rights granted in the constitution and a made up right to kill another human being just because it’s small.
Do you libs have any problem with BO interfering in long standing and continually upheld (until now) bankruptcy rights? The rights of secured creditors? Have any problem interfering with private business so the president can pay off his cronies? No problem apparently with BO stealing money from some (while ignoring the law) and giving to his buddies.
The MSM has given O the articulate insignia, but Red and group merely point out that he doesn’t deserve it. In 100 days O’s made as many “mistakes” in speech as Bush ever did in 8 years. Yet the blind will not see.
Laugh my A$$ off!
Poor Michelle has to sleep with BRO the DOG?
Maybe you should toss her a BONE!
God yoyo when i thought I had kicked you around enough already, you come back for more.
Your post #13 It must just piss you off #10 that a “moron”, as you say, kicked the crap out of your republicans to become the President. A landslide victory. A resounding, embarrassingly laughable rout.
Is laughable I must say. First of all, every black, welfare receipients, who had never voted in their life, voted. Sad it took skin color, the very thing they have bitched about for years to draw their worthless asses out to the polls.
Second, dead relatives, dogs, multiple voting, and the stupid ass kissing press made the landslide.
#6 – Why not? You guys did it all day long with GWB.
#17 – You’re talking over their heads. They won’t get it.
so scott, what would you have done about it?
let them go belly up?
or give more money to the vultures (hedge funds)?
@#16 YoYo I don’t get a social security check to send back moron. I want the unborn to have the same rights as the rest of us moron. That is not the government running anyone’s life. We do not have the right to decide who lives or dies. You on the other hand obviously do not care about the innocent that can’t speak for themselves, you only care about how you can live off the government which in turn is taxpayers dollars. That’s why you love your boy so much, you are hoping he will pay your mortgage (or I should say your momma’s since you still live at home)and probably don’t have a job. You probably live off welfare & food stamps so of course you don’t have a problem with the government interfering in your life. I don’t want the government telling me I have to pay your mortgage, pay your bills. That is your responsibility not mine. I don’t want the government telling me I have to pay for stem cell research or legalized abortions.
You are the one that is laughable with your insane ideas that we are obligated to pay for everyone to have a home or car and we have to pay for abortions and stem cell research and illegal aliens. You do realize that all this money will have to be paid back don’t you? Of course it doesn’t affect you, you probably don’t pay taxes, aren’t married and don’t have children that’s why you sit here and defend this idiot who wants to turn us into a socialist country. Yep, that’s what pisses me off.
@#19 Nice post.
#19 – Care to back up any of your claims or are you just spewing typical right wing extremist nonsense?
How about you start with: Show where a dog voted in the 2008 election.
Good luck. Lol.
#19 – You say black welfare recipients are worthless?
Now I understand – you are pissed off Obama is President because he has dark skin and you are a racist.
Lol…it always ends up coming out now doesn’t it #19.
And who said racism doesn’t exist anymore in America?
Number #19 is a shining example that it continues. No wonder #25 agreed.
FACT: when civilians died during attacks in Iraq, GWB was a tyrant, murderer,war monger, to the demmies.
now that Afghan civilians are dying at the hands of the obama administration, all hillary has to do is say “we regret the lives lost in Afghanistan”.
oh, but this is obama, the one, the messiah, the God that democrats worship so it’s ok?
Oh yoyo, are you that illiterate? You can’t be that dumb now can you? It was black with an , then welfare recipients. So that was blacks as well as welfare sitters. They come in every race. I am far from racist.
Let me tell you a true story that happened the other day that sickened me to the core. I was talking to a lady in a facility I was investigating. A juvenile facility to be exact. It was on visiting day and there was a black woman and her child visiting her daughter who was incarcerated for grand theft auto. I was telling the lady about Mrs. Obumas high dollar shoe fiasco and what not. The whole time I was talking, the mother thought it was amusing to pass gas and burp like a rude person that she was and laugh. But again, nothing against her, nothing against skin color. She made the comment to a worker that she thought she looked good for a woman who had squashed out six kids and her boyfriend did not mind her body functions, cause he did it too. I was rather disgusted, but hey, I was raised better. Anyways, as I was leaving work, she commented to her daughter … “God Obuma is the sexiest man alive.” “That walk of his drives me crazy!” Her daughter replied “That pimp daddy walk?” Mom said, “Ohhh yeahhhh!!!”
There is your racism. The very ones who call each other nigger but heaven forbid if a white utters it. Or that one rap song about killing all whiteys, even the babies. Now you tell me who the racist people are in US. I know quite a few shit stirrers. Starting with Sharpton, who does need to be hung with a rope. Rev. Jesse Jackson. Bet you thought Martin Luther King was somebody too. You don’t even want to go there. So you keep right on ranting with that ever so old race card.
For God sakes why am I even responding to someone with the name yoyo muffintop anyways?
@#27 YoYo Will you stop with the racist crap, every time someone disagrees with the President it does not make them a racist. The racist are the people who voted for him because he was black. The people who never voted before a day in their life but voted because a black man was running. All this racist crap is what is keeping this nation divided and keeping racism alive. All you want to do is cry racism, that is so typical of you talking heads, when you can’t argue a point you bring up the race card. It’s gotten old. I think you are the racist because every chance you get you bring it into the conversation. Speaking the truth about how Obama got elected is not being racist but I wouldn’t expect you to know that because you are what you accuse others of being. Someone disagrees with you or your BOY and you sling the insults and bring out the race card. Very classy….NOT…In reference to your post #27 where you called Jadey and myself racists and you have no idea what you are talking about. I know that you are trying to get a rise out of us, it’s the elementary school mentality to call names and start fights. Isn’t it time for a nap. They still take naps in kindergarten don’t they?
Dipsh*t…the last landslide victory of grand proportions was Reagan. McCain still got 57M votes…didn’t lose by as much as people think considering the turnout created by ACORN (under investigation)… Landslide? You smoke crack!
#17 – hmmmm…ever hear of the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment in the Constitution? Seems your ok with violating that.
#29 – “Starting with Sharpton, who does need to be hung with a rope. Rev. Jesse Jackson. Bet you thought Martin Luther King was somebody too. You don’t even want to go there.”
So…Al Sharpton needs to be lynched, according to you.
Now why don’t you enlighten us on Martin Luther King Jr now. I’m sure it’s facinating. But let me guess – you won’t.
Keep digging that hole. You post in #29 pretty much confirms everything. Lol.
#32 – Then I guess Al Gore beat GWB in 2000? After all Gore received more votes than GWB.
Who’s the dipsh%t now?
Just bearly,, I am with you on the sick of both parties.. sick of the govt. period.
Here’s an example..
Obama’s claim of tracking ‘every dime’ of stimulus delayed until 2010…
7 of 10 lawmakers skip oversight hearing…
WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – Regulators have told Bank of America Corp it needs $34 billion of capital to withstand a deep economic downturn, an industry source familiar with results of a government stress test said late on Tuesday.
Citigroup Inc may need as much as $10 billion, a person familiar with the matter said this week. About 10 of the 19 big U.S. banks being stress-tested may need more capital, a person familiar with the official talks has said.
Analysts believe other banks that may need capital include Wells Fargo & Co, Fifth Third Bancorp, GMAC LLC, KeyCorp, PNC Financial Services Group Inc Regions Financial Corp and SunTrust Banks Inc.
Chris Dodd and why is he still there?(wiki)
Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs (Chairman)
Countrywide has also contributed a total of $21,000 to Dodd’s campaigns since 1997. Dodd has received approximately $70,000 in campaign contributions from Bank of America, which is buying Countrywide, in the last year-and-a-half before the Countrywide Financial loan scandal broke. Only then-Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have received more money from Bank of America than Dodd with Senator John McCain slightly trailing him at $64,000.  However, no American politician has received more contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac than Dodd’s combined $133,900.
On June 20, 2008, the Heritage Foundation alleged staffers from Bank of America had drafted Dodd’s housing bailout bill (FHA Housing Stabilization and Homeownership Retention Act of 2008) in March 2008, before it was introduced in the Senate. The Los Angeles Times also reported on this story on June 21.
From the fall of 2008 through early 2009, the United States government spent nearly $170 Billion to bailout the failing insurance giant, AIG. AIG then spent $165 million of this money to hand out executive “retention” bonuses to its top executives. Public outrage ensued over this perceived misuse of taxpayer dollars.
Senator Chris Dodd was responsible for the inclusion of a clause limiting excessive executive pay in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Opensecrets.org reports Dodd has received over $223,000 from AIG employees for his recent campaigns.  Additionally, it has recently been revealed that Senator Dodd’s wife is a former Director for Bermuda-based IPC Holdings, a company controlled by AIG.  On May 3, 2009, the Courant reported Dodd’s wife served on a number of corporate boards, including the CME Group and could be earning as much as $500,000 annually for her service on said boards. 
On March 30, 2009, it was reported that AIG Financial Products head Joseph Cassano personally solicited contributions from his employees via an e-mail suggesting that the contributions were related to Dodd’s ascension to the chairmanship of the Senate Banking Committee
and Barney Frank still at his job, Barney Frank has been a member of the House Financial Services Committee since 1991 (and is currently the chair) after telling a whistleblower for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.. that he saw no problems, it was all bull.. then the whistleblower was labeled a racist by members of Congress for blowing the whistle on Franklin Raines..one of the members even called it a lynching of Franklin Raines. (On December 18, 2006, U.S. regulators filed 101 civil charges against chief executive Franklin Raines; chief financial officer J. Timothy Howard; and the former controller Leanne G. Spencer. The three are accused of manipulating Fannie Mae earnings to maximize their bonuses.
Barney Frank was in a romantic relationship with Herb Moses, who was an executive at Fannie Mae While at Fannie Mae, Moses helped develop many of Fannie Mae’s affordable housing and home improvement lending programs. Other lawmakers have called this a “clear conflict of interest.”
These people are still in place..Insane…
I agree with Yo Yo, there are racists all over this place. Racists and babies crying over lost money, lost time and lost dreams… never loss of life. And when things go wrong for them, it’s always everyone elses fault.
Lack of responsibility is synonomous with Republicans…
From Nixon all the way down to Junior.
THINK about it!
Personally, I feel Rev Al needs to be brought to trial for the riot he caused at Freddy’s Fashion Mart that resulted in the deaths of several people and the catastrophic fire that ensued. So, YES, he should be promptly tried and convicted and sentenced to death row.
The transsexual wing of Riker’s is where he’ll be safest. And HIS safety is of utmost concern.
I thought it was funny. Cinco de quatro. HA!
I am drunk, this all BS
Champion League final Barca vs. ManU.
the 1 strongest teams in the world
CL final prob. will disapoint
the 2 strongest teams
never post while your drunk, spelling errors
@ YOYO with your damn race card BS again…
Check out the song “My Life” by Rapper/Hip Hop Artist “The Game”. It’s a really good song (I love it) and all the lyrics are kickin’. Even Rapper Lil’ Wayne does a voice over and background vocals on it to add to the fabulous story which is being told.
One sentence of the lyrics in a verse are:
” ..and F#ck Jesse Jackson ‘cuz it ain’t about race now”
You really need to listen to the whole song. I’m sure you know that both Lil Wayne and The Game are black, and basically they are singing about a lot of struggles in life in general. More specifically, it is being described as viewed and experienced through their eyes as young black men growing up in some of the Streets in America.
Please, once and for all- stop pulling out the damn race card when there is nowhere else for you to go or when it is completely NON APPLICABLE to any given subject at hand. It’s getting older than old, never mind just old. It also insults your intelligence, YoYo- (and while I hate to admit it)..you are quite intelligent & didn’t exactly fall of the turnip truck yesterday. Stop embarrasing yourself with this bad habit you have. It’s not flattering at all.
So now go ahead and light me up and start the name calling “Simpleton” crapola again, whatever. It’s just my lousy 2 cents worth…really think you may enjoy the song recommendation however.
What does Gore/Bush have to do with your assine comment that Obama won in a landslide? Get a life loser!
nope, yoyo fell straight off a watermelon truck . and hope, “your boy” is taking lives and all he has the guts to do is let hillary say “oh, we regret the loss of lives in afghanistan”.
he does not even have the balls to speak for himself.
naw blame this one on bush too so we can have a laugh today.
#43 – Let me help you out: The number of votes John McCain received means nothing. The winner is determined by electoral votes. If you were to go by votes, as you referenced in #32 in a attempt to show 2008 was not a landslide, Al Gore would have been elected President in 2000. It was a landslide victory in 2008. It’s akin to the Lakers beating the Celtics 110-45.
There ya go – I dumbed it down to a 5th grade level for you…do you need me to drop it to 2nd grade or do you now get it?
ha ! al gore got lost on the white house grounds and secret service had to find him. he thought he was hiking ?
same as kerry calls hunting deer crawling around in the underbrush with his trusty shotgun stalking game. HA! HA!
When you are proven wrong in one area, then you meant it in another way…LOL! Typical liberal circle jerk talk…idiots!
2008 was no landslide in either way you want to try to spin it…..
These are landslides more akin to your stupid analogy, like you know something about basketball (LOL):
1980 – 489-49
1984 – 525-13
1988 – 426-111
AND Clinton won both his elections by larger margins then Obama and his were never called landslides.
Besides, Obama’s winning is laughable considering he BOUGHT the election, although allegedly legal. He needed private donations from the Hollywood elitists to get more fradulent ACORN workers on the ground.
The fact is this…everybody wants to say that America spoke when they elected Obama, FACT is just over half of America voted for him.
HOPE – it makes perfect sense a person on government assistance like yourself would think it’s funny that people who lived the American dream, built up what they had from nothing, ONLY to see spent away by Obama. I know you don’t have kids because I would feel sorry for any child living under your roof. They would have no chance with a heartless wench!
BTW you #37 post explains perfectly the Democrats and liberal pukes like you! Conservatives and Republicans are all about individual responsibility which is why they don’t want MORE government in your life telling you what to do. You need someone telling you what to do because you’re a mutant brainless pig.
Never loss of life? I’m sorry, who is pro-life and who isn’t? I got it, you are a late term abortion gone bad! Why do they tell people to read to their babies when they are pregnant at 7, 8, 9 months? Because they aren’t a person or because they are? They have a fully working heart and brain and all the needed appendages. In fact, many pre-mies live to have long healthy lives. I wish someone would abort you today! Pig.
Lack of responsibility akin to Repubs? LOL…
Who said “I did not have sex with that woman (pig)?”
Who won’t take responsibility for his part in the housing crisis? Barney Frank
Who won’t take responsibility that they were in those 30 interrogation briefings?
Who won’t take responsibility for mortgaging my child’s future away, giving it to sh*thead losers who live take advantage of the welfare system, collecting checks while driving BMW’s and don’t pay income taxes?
I think its funny how liberals hold on to their $400 tax refund; their whole $8 a day! Maybe you can buy a life with that?
superdave – Gore invented the internet remember? LOL! No wait, Global Warming is real and we are all going to burn to hell in the next week or so?
These same people who cry about the ponzi-scheme called global warming and how they are so concerned about what is going to happen to the planet in the next 2 or 3 decades are the same ones who want Obama to spend their childs and their childs child money to deficits UNSEEN or UNHEARD of EVER; who sit there and demean people because they lost their pensions, life savings, their homes, everything they worked for. Liberals NEVER want to get their hands dirty to earn their keep, they want a hand-out from the government.
His deficit is more than all the Presidents put together.
get this: obama now seeking back door gun control. joining with the dictators of latin american countries, one of obama’s top list priorities is gun control. this includes all guns manufactured along with all ammunition to be coded/marked so the government can control the sale and use of firearms.
he and his biotch hillary are now spreading the lie that 90% of guns confiscated in mexico comes from the US. a blatant lie. according to a latin american official the real number hovers at around 17%. buy all the guns and ammo you can possibly store because your rights are dissolving as we speak.
I never listen to Sharpton or Jackson.. Ever notice many times the one’s who shout racist the loudest..are the biggest racists.. Jesse Jackson went into hiding after making racist comments about Jewish people..yet he’s always out screaming racist. Don’t forget the minister of Obama’s church yelling racist, while making racist comment’s about white people. Al Sharpton is like Geraldo, another wannabe
Martin Luther King
you that ban on assault rifles?
yes, very bad that ban……
