Another Off Teleprompter Moment, Talk About Out of Touch … President Barack Obama Booed After Thanking Boston & Red Sox Nation For Kevin Youkilis, “I’m just saying, he’s going to have to change the color of his socks” (UPDATE: WH Press Sec. Tries to Say Audiance not Booing, Saying ‘Yoooook’)
Don’t look now but it appears that Barack Obama went off the teleprompter again, the result … being booed at a Boston fundraiser.
How ignorant could one individual possibly be? President Barack Obama in his less than infinite wisdom was booed at a fund raiser at Symphony Hall when he mocked the crowd by thanking them for former Boston Red Sox 3rd baseman Kevin Youkilis. Brilliant Barack. Youkilis, a Red Sox Nation fan favorite and one the the forever Red Sox heroes that brought Boston and New England a World Series Championship after 86 years, finally breaking the “curse of the Bambino”. Youks was traded following Sunday’s baseball game from the Red Sox to the Chicago White Sox leaving only one player left from the 2004 red Sox world champs. Thus, the Ignoramus in Chief thought it cute the maje a joke of it. Dude, let me make one thing perfectly clear, the Red Sox and their fan base take baseball seriously as compared to you and your so-called being a White Sox fan.
Being booed was probably the last thing President Barack Obama expected from the crowd at a Symphony Hall fundraiser Monday night, but that happened when the president “thanked” Boston for Kevin Youkilis, who was just traded to the Chicago White Sox.
“I’m just saying, he’s going to have to change the color of his socks,” the president said laughing.
This misguided fool actually thought he would not receive boos by his comments. Unreal, who is the one who is out of touch Barack Obama? I guess its good for Obama that he was not running for President in 1920 after Babe Ruth had been traded from the red Sox to the Yankees. I can only imagine the ignorant comment he would have made.
Keep it up Barack and you just may find a way to lose the state of Massachusetts and New England (New Hampshire) while you are at it with ignorant comments regarding Red Sox Nation where baseball is a religion.
UPDATE I: This Administration is nothing more than a bunch of pathetic liars.These idiots cannot even tell the truth when Obama is plainly booed after making a bad joke regarding beloved and recently traded Ken Youkilis. Today White House Press Secretary Jay Carney tried top tell reporters that Obama was not booed, they were saying “YOOOK”.
“There has been some really silly reporting about the president’s remarks regarding Kevin Youkilis last night. It is highly commendable in my view as a Red Sox fan that the president has always refused to pander on sports,” said Carney. “He is a White Sox fan, he owns his fandom of the White Sox. He proved that again last night.”
“Anyone who knows Boston, knows the Red Sox and anyone who was in that room last night knows that the preponderance of people shouting in response to what the president said about Kevin Youkilis were saying ‘Yoooook’ and not ‘Booo,’ for God’s sake,” Carney said.
Dude, let me first start by saying this … as a life long Red Sox fan, I think I know the difference between a “BOO” and a YOOOK”. You Jay Carney, a hired Obama liar would not. Stick to lying about politics. How sad is it that this Administration cannot even tell the truth when it comes to something as simple as Obama telling a bad joke to the wrong crowd.
STRIKE I: Watch the following two videos and you can plainly see the difference between a “BOO” and a “YOOOK”. In the above video you can hear the crowd boo Obama. In the video below, you can hear the distinct difference of “YOOOOK”.
Hear the crowd start to yell “Yoook” at the 55 second mark
STRIKE II: When Obama actually made the foolish remarks in the above, the egg on his face goof actually says at the 28 second mark, “I didn’t think I would get any boos outta here …” Um, Jay … Obama actually admitted he was booed.
STRIKE III: As reported at the Jawa Report, the actual transcript of the event had the audience booing.
I also want to acknowledge former Governor Michael Dukakis, who is here, and his lovely wife Kitty. (Applause.) And finally, Bos, I just want to say thank you for Youkilis.
AUDIENCE: Booo –
THE PRESIDENT: I’m just saying. He’s going to have to change the color of his “sox.” (Laughter and boos.) I didn’t think I’d get any “boos” out of here, but — (laughter) — I guess I shouldn’t have — I should not have brought up baseball. I understand. My mistake.
AUDICEN: Booo –
