Surprise, surprise! President Obama “ignored” Glenn Beck rally

by editor on August 30, 2010


While being worshipped interviewed by Brian Williams, The Greatest and Most Cerebral President Of All Time explained that he doesn’t pay attention to polls. Because “I can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.”

Say what, Mr. President?

Oh, but the President was just getting started. The MSNBC article also said:

Obama is clearly intent on casting himself as above the political fray, saying American politics is in its “silly season.” For example, he swears he didn’t watch any of Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally on the National Mall yesterday and says he doesn’t find it surprising that “a Glenn Beck can stir up some of the people.”

“I’m making decisions that are not necessarily good for the nightly news and not good for the next election, but for the next generations,” he says.

Obama casting himself as above things? Why that’s not really news now, is it?

We are not quite sure what “a” Glenn Beck is, but somehow Barack Obama managed to make it sound like a bad thing.

Ignoring the voice of the American people and holding himself as somehow above the common, everyday dealings of the unwashed masses has become a hallmark of this administration, if not the guy in charge. Above the political fray, indeed.

I thought it was his finger and his thumb in the shape of an ‘L’ on his forehead…

Blues Junky August 30, 2010 at 7:38 pm

Make no mistake…Obama watches every move Glenn Beck makes…because he scares the shit out of him…

what dreams children will dream…..

Co2 Insanity August 30, 2010 at 6:39 pm

So this means he’s an IGNOREamus?

danybhoy May 27, 2011 at 11:21 am

No, I think he knows everything being said about him. 1 of his biggest problems involves his skin. Not it’s color, but how thin it is. Obama does’nt like any real decent of any kind. The tea party is his biggest enemy.

MichiganVet August 30, 2010 at 6:33 pm

his “change the tv channel” czar was at an seiu meeting so he had to continue getting his Huffpo updates via the cartoon channel

Paden August 30, 2010 at 5:44 pm

But we all know Obama really watched every last second of Beck’s rally…

USN-RETIRED August 30, 2010 at 6:12 pm

Doesn’t he have a czar to do that for him?

Ray August 30, 2010 at 4:31 pm

So the “man of the people” has let it be known he’s just an elitist snob.

danybhoy August 30, 2010 at 10:37 pm

That is what he is all about, & he has never done or said anything that might temper people’s expections of him. There are idiots who believe he walks on water, & he let’s them believe it.

Side note, I CAN walk on water, but I make sure it’s frozen before I do so.

thatguy September 3, 2010 at 1:21 am

He is of the people, just in his mind if you disagree with him you are a nonperson. The fact that you don’t see things his way proves that you are not competent to make your own choices any more. For your own good he must ignore what you claim you want and give you what he thinks you need. You would thank him for it later if you were not so racist.

Michael Kelly May 27, 2011 at 10:05 am

my, my aren’t you the cautious one…only walking on the ice. Man, you are a
really cool dude…

MichiganVet August 30, 2010 at 1:56 pm

GW took way more heat than this poseur and never, to my recollection, blamed things on Clinton or the American public.

B’OB is acting very childlike, lashing out at everyone within sight, as the reason(s) for his many failures. History will record him as a unqualified, egotistical, “straw man” that was elected by an “American Idol” crowd. He looked pretty, talked pretty, has “slave blood” and was an agitator – what more could the post-hippie generation ask?

Now the mask is off, people see him in the sunlight and are tiring of the same old excuses and blame-shifting. Welcome, Mr. O, to the fate you have worked so dilligently to earn!

thatguy September 3, 2010 at 1:15 am

I wish that were true. Sadly the reporters, teachers, professors and text book writers will all lay the the blame for his many disasters with GWB and the “racist in fly over county”. The chosen one came and showed us the path, but America wouldn’t listen because he was black.

USN-RETIRED August 30, 2010 at 1:48 pm

Curiously ( or not ) he didn’t mention Mr. Sharptons rally.

MichiganVet August 31, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Who? What? A rally for people that use Sharpies?

Elrond Hubbard August 30, 2010 at 1:16 pm

What I’d like to see is Obama walking around with a copy of the U.S. Constitution plastered to his forehead. Maybe he’d read it and learn something.

Natsman August 30, 2010 at 1:36 pm

He’d have a job reading it if it’s stuck to his forehead…

michael August 30, 2010 at 1:40 pm

well perhaps a suppository would be a better application for him, that way he can adsorb it and over time in some small way understand it

Greg August 30, 2010 at 2:11 pm

It would be closer to his brain that way.

USN-RETIRED August 30, 2010 at 1:45 pm

Not really. As narcisistic as he seems to be, he probably looks in a mirror a lot. He would just need a special edition printed in reverse image.

thatguy September 3, 2010 at 1:07 am

Put a reverse print of the Constitution on his head. Since he can’t go past a mirror with out gazing into it, maybe he would learn something.

perlcat September 3, 2010 at 7:21 am

You’d have to get it off the toilet paper rolls in Rahmbo’s house first.

danybhoy May 27, 2011 at 3:42 pm

He knows what the constitution says, but like all leftists & progressives, he does’nt respect the limitations it places on gov’t.

Elrond Hubbard August 30, 2010 at 12:59 pm

America’s “silly season” began when Obama took the oath of office. But one thing he said is true, the decisions he’s making now will affect coming generations; they will paying off the enormous, usustainable national debt that the Bamster, Pelosi and Reid are dumping on this nation. Our children and grandchildren will live poorer, more constrained lives thanks to the decisions this sneaky socialist is making.

Too Bad August 30, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Not to split hairs, but if you want to get technical the “silly season” started 2 years prior to his taking office when the Dims gained control in the House and Senate.

Elrond Hubbard August 30, 2010 at 6:15 pm

That’s true, I forgot about the 2006 election jus tlike I’m trying to forget the 2008 horror.

KimmyQueen August 30, 2010 at 12:35 pm

I believe pretty much the opposite of most of what he says anyway.

Jimbo August 30, 2010 at 12:26 pm

Oh and another thing (I love this site). His Wonderfulness said, “I can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.” Does that mean He can’t find the damn thing either?

mr mojo risin August 30, 2010 at 1:32 pm

Oh, he knows where it is, It’s sealed like the rest of his documents. This assclown can shut the whole thing down in one fell swoop, just show the damn thing, a birth certificate, not a certificate of live birth (which omits pertinant information, IE the doctor, etc), btw what the hey is a certificate of live birth ? Sounds like something that’s used for livestock, and pure bred animals.

sheria September 2, 2010 at 12:48 am

You really are as ignorant as you sound. A certificate of live birht is issued i quite a few states. You see, even if a child is stillborn, there still has to be a birth certificate issued stating that there was a birth but the child was born dead. Some states choose to distinguish the birth certificates by stating that it is a certificate of live birth if the child is born alive. There is no standard form for a birth certificate. Each state controls what is and what is not on the birth certificate. In my state, my birth certificate indicates it was a certificate of live birth and does not include the doctor’s name. The only assholes are you and the rest of these birther clowns. What’s going to destroy this country is sheer ignorance.

DJ September 2, 2010 at 2:11 pm

You are correct on the COLB being different for each state.

However, your last sentence, “What’s going to destroy this country is sheer ignorance” has already happened with the 2008 election being treated like American Idolatry. Captain Zero is just getting warmed up, which is why there will be a serious beat down come November 2, 2010, IMHO.

perlcat September 3, 2010 at 7:20 am

You know, while I particularly enjoy the term “Captain Zero’ for the non-achiever-in-chief, I personally feel that he is more of a ‘Captain Emptypants”, fighting such nemesis as “Captain Underpants”, the Christmas Day bomber.

I think that a comic book series is in order. In his alter ego, I think he should be a mild mannered community organizer named Urkel Asshat.

Just sayin’.

Yeah (I love this site) I do as well. It’s funny reading all you rear ends reaffirming each others BS….

Quit reading my rear end, you freak.

danybhoy May 27, 2011 at 11:14 am

Be careful perlcat, this might be MKs theme song…

…it’s Billy Gunn’s old WWF entrence music, when he was known as Mr.Ass. Sounds a bit like Tom Jones.

KimmyQueen May 28, 2011 at 7:46 am

Uhm… that is the nature of blogs. People find blogs that they like to read and they tend to agree with the blog or if they disagree there is agreable debate. They do the same thing at the Huffington Post or whatever other Soros bought and paid for blog… well not EXACTLY the same thing you see over there if you respectfully disagree your posts dissappear sometime after people use all kind of vulgar and vile language against you. At least here we give people who are respectfully disagreeing a chance to debate respectfully. However unfortunately we get a lot of morons like you, who come in here INSULTING AND DEMEANING right off so of course you are a prime target for us to give you some back.

Jimbo August 30, 2010 at 12:21 pm

When a politician says he or she doesn’t pay attention to polls you can be sure of two things. 1) they’re fibbing. 2) their poll numbers suck

editor August 30, 2010 at 2:19 pm

You forgot 3) they’re paying such close attention that they can think of almost nothing else.

C Strasburger August 30, 2010 at 12:13 pm

Considering this man and his ilk, are in fact, lower than pond scum, it is amazing that he likes to potificate to himself that he is above the fray! But then, the operative there was, “pontificate to himself…”, being self dillusional, self aggrandizing is the order of the day with this truly uneducated, leftist, marxist wierdo.

I feel sorry for his kids….self dillusion is, unfortunately, hereditary, even with having to hear it everyday of their lives…… because these two are going see the reality in the not too distant future, with their father going down as the worst president in the history of our great nation…..

Michael Kelly May 27, 2011 at 9:54 am

golly gee, we got a historical prognosticator and a psychiatrists all rolled into
one. You must be really proud of yourself…..

perlcat May 27, 2011 at 10:42 am

Yeah, but you’re the necrophiliac, dredging up year-old articles and posting to people that are not there anymore.

alien May 27, 2011 at 11:16 am

There are regulars who do that pretty often here.. I always thought it odd, then had to laugh when I saw the Necromancer flamewarrior the other day

perlcat May 27, 2011 at 11:32 am

I guess it is like my invocation whenever I get bored — I say “entertain me, magic box”, and see what I can stir up.

Jimbo August 30, 2010 at 11:59 am

I wonder if President Obama knows how well “a Jimmy Carter” did in 1980?

DJ September 2, 2010 at 7:18 am

Check out this hysterically funny political button of Carter:

I’d like to know who was the brain trust behind THAT marketing gem!

michael August 30, 2010 at 11:45 am

When one is omnipotence the concerns and wishes of mere constituents are of such trivial notice as to be invisible, such meaningless things as the constitution, truth, morality, Christianity, honor have no place in obama’s mindset, he is reshaping America with the help of his deal making thief’s, his role models: a terrorist he does not know but somehow whose home obama’s political career was launched, Marxist professors, his spiritual guidance comes from a hate filled, American hating, bigoted thing that calls himself a pastor (but to obama’s credit for twenty years he did not listen) Just sit back, he is doing this for all of us, the redistribution of our monies to where he thinks it is best served, like ACORN, or rebuilding Mosques in 26 other counties. He did keep his promise of bringing change to America; before his term is over we should be listed as a third world nation.

Michael Kelly May 27, 2011 at 9:39 am

Bush & company got us 90% of the way to being a Third World Nation. Just
maybe, but maybe not Obama can finish the job….

nonkenyan May 27, 2011 at 4:05 pm

That’s bullshit. Do you live in a mud hut? Or, a cardboard box? Stop blaming Bush

alien May 27, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Can we blame both Bush & Obama? Curious

KimmyQueen May 28, 2011 at 7:37 am

I cannot speak for others, but I took full advantage of the Bush Presidency. It wasn’t perfect, there were a few bumps here and there, but I had it good. Now I HAVE to do with less by force because first I have no idea what is going to happen so I have to be ready and have less of the extra stuff that I like, and second because everyone else feels the same fear so they are stockpiling on cash which means that everything costs more… which leads to me having less. It is a vicious cycle.

I guess every American must go through a Hoover or a Carter presidency. Let’s hope the next one is a Reagan.

Gregory Tart August 30, 2010 at 11:27 am

Obama is busy writing his “I have a dream….. of Myself” for the next rally at the Washington Memorial
