Image the Ridicule if GWB did This … Barack Obama Refers to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as President


No Double Standard Here …

“I suspect when I speak to Prime Minister Putin tomorrow, he will say the same thing.”


What, who is the PM of Russia? Hmm … Can I use my Life-line or Teleprompter?

During President Barack Obama’s much publicized trip to Moscow to push the reset button with relations with Russia, The Chosen One made yet another speaking gaffe. Obama referred to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as President in error.

In a slip of the tongue, U.S. President Barack Obama described Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Monday as president, echoing the widely held view that he remains Russia’s most powerful man.

Putin surrendered the presidency to protege Dmitry Medvedev last May to take the lesser post of prime minister, but most political analysts say Putin remains Russia’s ultimate decision maker.

Obama is supposed to be so much smarter than GWB, right? Or will Obama once again blame his mistake on GWB or his teleprompter? One can only sit back and imagine the media’s mockery of Bush if he had done this.

You would hear comments like ignorant, misinformed, stupid, uneducated cowboy and fool. The media headline would have read, “President Bush Doesn’t Know Putin’s Title” or would it be”GWB Doesn’t Know Didly”.  However, when Obama makes yet another verbal gaffe it is because he is tired or some pathetic excuse dreamed up by the apologists. Instead, the Great Orator makes another gaffe which all people tend to do, except when it’s a Democrat like Obama, it is swept under the rug.

Who says it’s difficult to find material for political humor for the Late Night Talk Shows on Obama?

      love ya Vladimir, let’s all stand-up and give a hand
      to Prime Minister Vladimir’.

      Obama is nothing without someone writing a speech for him and that teleprompter…he’s a well spoken individual who if you didn’t actually LISTEN to his words, I could see how an idiot could be swayed by his calmness and speaking ability.

      He’s all fluff…Just listen to him off the cuff; the uhh’s, ahh’s, ummm’s is ASTRONOMICAL compared to Bush. You may not have liked the way Bush talked but at least you could understand him and it came straight from the heart. Bush NEVER pretended to be somebody he wasn’t…PERIOD….

      If GWB made a mistake or misspoke, he’d be crucified. Obama has mispoken

      Hi–a president is usually referred to as Mr President after leaving office and in this case after having taken a lesser position in government. In face to face conversation this would be a measure of respect.

    4. nurturer on July 7th, 2009 12:24 pm

      Maybe Obama should just call him Czar!

    5. Jack Hammer on July 7th, 2009 1:21 pm

      He really did that??? Oh my God!! Get him out of office. He can never be forgiven.

    6. Scott on July 7th, 2009 2:27 pm

      #5 – STFU you POS! You are hypocrite! If GWB had messed up like that; NBC News would run it as their first story on the NATIONAL news. Give me a break.

    7. Scott on July 7th, 2009 2:28 pm

      BTW, if he is now Prime Minister, he should be called PM, NOT President; EVEN if he were the former President. Get a clue jeff…. what you said only applies to Presidents in our government since we don’t have PM’s but we have plenty O-CZARS!

    8. buster on July 7th, 2009 3:08 pm

      What ever happened to obongos ante who lived in Boston did she get deported or was she given a golden key ???

    9. Jack Hammer on July 7th, 2009 4:56 pm

      This needs to be put at the top of the news, ahead of the millions mourning the death of a pedophile. Thanks Scott for your kind words. GWB messed up like this all the time. Scared Monkeys did not have articles covering it though. Wonder why? Is it skin color?

    10. dotratc on July 7th, 2009 5:56 pm

      Instead of getting all hot and bothered over a slip of the tongue (that was quickly corrected and didn’t seem to offend anyone), how about focusing on the fact that Obama is being very well-received by a skeptical Russia? I mean, seriously, what’s more important? Speculating about how GWB would have been treated by the media if he had made a similar mistake (and then doing exactly the same thing that you presume certain elements of the media would do) or measuring the success of the mission into a nation that the previous administration sought to alienate (not unlike his recent trip to the Middle East)? To me, the latter is far more important, and it looks like, once again, we can all be proud of our president.

    11. on July 7th, 2009 9:08 pm

      LOL “well received”? Guess you haven’t seen the picture at Drudge and HotAir where Dmitry Medvedev won’t even look at O while shaking his hand.

      And is it just like someone from the liberal to jump up and yell racist when anyone dares to criticize “the one”. That’s as old as and “inherited” phrase.

      I will grant you that O calling Putin “president” is very weak compared to the things that O has actually done in wreaking the economy, putting the US in horrendous debt and killing off jobs.

    12. rightknight on July 7th, 2009 9:32 pm

      Our guy can charm the cold, calculating Russian
      Bear into a warm and fuzzy relationship with the
      United States. This Miracle is so amazing that it
      is literally Unbelievable. Blessed with Power not
      available to the Common Man, Obowma uses
      his Personality and Silver Tongue to bring sworn
      enemies under his sway. Wow, can you believe this?
      What we are witnessing is absolutely Fantastic!

      Whew, these mushrooms are making me feel funny.

    13. Scott on July 8th, 2009 6:28 am

      #10 are you kidding? reading more NYT, NBC propaganda? LOL! He got a very luke warm reception and applause…

      Once again, when a liberal does not have an answer they throw out the “race card.” Typical!

    14. SUPER DAVE on July 8th, 2009 7:14 am

      it’s not skin color jackie boy. it’s the truth which no democrat or obama lackey can accept. now that he’s letting you guys down and falling in popularity, you have to resort back to the old racist excuse. that one is about 200 years old now. find another one.

    15. ANewGirl on July 8th, 2009 8:52 am

      Jack Hammer—-using the race card is juvenile at best. Figures that is all you’ve got when there is no where else for you to go.

      And one more thing—you and that big mouth Senator with a mental problem—DO NOT JUDGE OTHERS unless you know personally or have first hand experience! While I do agree the MSM AS USUAL has been over-doing the coverage on the passing of Michael Jackson—-who the hell are you to say the Man was a Pedophile?? FU! Definetly an eccentric character—but he gave MILLIONS (in fact closer to BILLIONS) to various charities for the poor and underpriviledged for years ! SO F U JACK? Did you see the clip of his little Girl and what she had to say about her FATHER?!?! You’re just a sniveling AHOLE hell bent on taking away anything decent from this man. And for the record–No–I’m not a Star Worshipper either so don’t give me that BS—MJ was an Entertainer like no other—he was somebody’s Son, Brother FATHER. What the hell have you done but call names yourself and hurl disgusting accusatory insults? PUT A LID ON IT!

    16. Jack Hammer on July 8th, 2009 10:57 am

      “DO NOT JUDGE OTHERS unless you know personally or have first hand experience!” That is what you said NEWGIRL. Take your own advice. You do not know me. And he was a pedophile regardless of what charities he supported. He molested kids, many of them. If one came forward, I could see it being a mistake, but this was many kids. Open your eyes.

      Obama during Russian anthem

      QuoteReply Obama puts hand over heart for the anthem!!!!!!

      Too bad it’s for the wrong country…

      pictures of Obama during Russian anthem and

      Obama during United States anthem

    18. Scott on July 8th, 2009 12:50 pm

      YOU claim he was a pedophile. Would you take $27M if you child was molested or would you want to see that guy go to jail. Any clear thinking parent would NEVER take millions for someone molesting their child UNLESS they were in it in the first place for the money. If they had so much damaging evidence in the first trial; why did they take the deal? Hmmmmm…. Liberals probably would sell their children down the river for a few cool mil….

      MJ had the most frivilous lawsuits brought against him more than anybody else in America by a longshot; including FALSE accusations of molesting. The 2nd trial, there was not very damaging evidence as it was proved that family was out for money.

      If he were such a uncontrolled pedophile; why has Maculley Culkin or Corey Feldman ever come out or any other celebrity kid, come out and say Jackson molested him? Pedophiles don’t have types of children, they molest any child; but yet Jackson supposedly molested cancer stricken kids; etc….

      Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t…we will NEVER know.

      We KNOW OJ killed his wife because of the DNA and the amount of blood left at the scene; BUT a racial biases jury towards Simpson gave him that acquittal; nothing more nothing less.

      There was NEVER any DNA evidence or other SOLID SIGNIFICANT evidence that pointed to Jackson definitely doing it.

      Like I said, maybe he did, maybe he didn’t….

      He was a great entertainer; but this hocus pocus by Al Sharpton; that Jackson paved the way for a black president to be elected is pure HOG WASH and not truthful. I think Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, MLK, Jim Brown might have something to say about that.

      Someone compared him to Mozart on O’Reilly last night which is joke too. People forget the actual sound behind Michael; that helped make Michael….

      Hey, I was an MJ fan as a kid but this tv coverage is a joke too. Enough is enough. Time to get back to Obama screwing up the country, oh wait, the MSM never reported that anyways. According to NBC, Obama came back from Russia by walking on water the entire way home.

      #2 – Thanks for the set-up

      Nothing better than the “fool me once” video of Bush.

      A few “Bushisms”

    20. yoyo muffintop on July 8th, 2009 2:44 pm

      #13 – Actually you are a racist.

      Scott said: “let me guess…you are a beaner that snuck across the border and now thinks the government owes you something”

      Using the term “beaner” would qualify you as a racist.

    21. Dolf on July 8th, 2009 3:29 pm

      Have to agree with Scott on this.

    22. SUPER DAVE on July 8th, 2009 4:01 pm

      YOYO: you don’t eat beans ?
      all i saw here was a bunch of russians looking at the floor bored to death. probably wondering where the US found such a dumbass as obama?
      when his own brothas and sistas turn on him (as they are already starting to do) he won’t last long. they will be his undoing. all we have to do is sit by and watch.

    23. SUPER DAVE on July 8th, 2009 4:07 pm

      new name for the president, vodoo chile .

    24. yoyo muffintop on July 8th, 2009 5:29 pm

      Well thank god you folks don’t believe racism still exists in this country…..
      Super D$%che #22 – did you and buster move to Philly together?

      Wouldn’t wanna change the “complexion” of the pool…unreal. Yep, sorry to burst your bubble katablog et al, but racism is alive and well.

    25. Scott on July 9th, 2009 6:47 am

      I’m a far cry from a racist but more of REALIST!

      Yep; check out the headlines from Ohio when black teens beat a white family chanting “It’s a black world.” Liberals are just plain violent in nature. yoyo – that was probably you in Ohio yesterday…

      thanks for the setup? LOL! At least the man has principles and morals and stands by them. So what? He’s not the greatest speaker in the world; but you know what, he kicked Al Gore’s ass in those debates and John Kerry for that matter. Obama’s a great speaker, so what? People did NOT listen to what he was actually saying; but now they are starting to pay attention…things are swaying back…

    26. yoyo muffintop on July 9th, 2009 11:01 pm

      #25 Short eyes:

      Didn’t you call mexicans “beaners”?

      Yep, that’s what a person who is racist towards hispanics would say.

      Care to defend that racial slur Mr Realism?

      Good luck – it’s always a pleasure to see someone defend the indefensible. You won’t though…you’ll run and hide like the racist coward you are. Got any slurs for Asians as well? How about African Americans? I bet privately you drop the “N” bomb multiple times a day.

      It always ends up coming out now doesn’t it? It’s only a matter of time. Lol.

    27. yoyo muffintop on July 9th, 2009 11:34 pm

      #17 Steve Holloway:

      Why would you state an outright lie such as that?

      You are correct – you are a sinner. Better spend some extra time making up to Jesus this Sunday.

      Why would you tell such a LIE Steve Holloway? As you see President Obama put his hand over his heart during the US Anthem, not the Russian one. As soon as the US Anthem was played, hand over heart.

      Proverbs 12:17:
      Whoever speaks the truth gives honest evidence, but a false witness utters deceit.

      You are a false witness who utters deceit Steve Holloway. Shame on you!

      Get to Church early on Sunday – you got some work to do.

    28. S L Pendergraft on March 5th, 2010 12:29 pm

      Our current President Obama is of mixed race–half white–so, if people are prejudiced against him–which part of his make-up are they prejudiced against. The race card in any society keeps people from becoming all they can become. Slavery existed in all societies. The race & slavery card will not save this president, who had no experience whatsoever. Out of 127 times to vote–he only voted 1X–otherwise, saying present. @ $1. a second–it takes 230,000 yrs to pay off 1 trillion $. O has doubled our debt–and is having all kinds of fun while doing it!! Oh yah, it’s Former Pres Bush’s fault–and the people who are prejudiced against O’s white half.

    29. S L Pendergraft on March 5th, 2010 12:31 pm

      Correction: O voted 4X–while senator.
