Barack Obama Can’t Spell Ohio. Crucify Him Like Media Did Dan Quayle!

On June 15, 1992, then Vice President Dan Quayle was visiting Munoz Rivera School in Trenton, New Jersey.  In front of a classroom full of kids, Quayle spelled ‘potato’ with an ‘e’ at the end.  William Figueroa informed the VP that he had spelled it wrong and wrote the correct spelling on the blackboard.

The media was relentless in their ridicule and criticism.  Many labeled him one of the dumbest politicians in American history.  According to Quayle’s 1994 memoir, that incident had a huge negative impact on his political career and is something he has never been able to live down.

On May 9, 2008, Senator Barack Obama was on the presidential campaign trail in Beaverton, Oregon.  While speaking to the crowd, Obama said that in the past 15 months, he had visited 57 states, had 1 more to go and that his staff would not let him go to Alaska or Hawaii.

Confusing the number of states is a far greater gaffe than misspelling potato, but Obama was not crucified in the media as was Quayle sixteen years earlier.  Several lesser known media sites tried to link Obama’s 57 states to the 57 Islamic states, that was never proved and I seriously doubt that was the intention.

Now in the latest list of stupid gaffes, Obama and three others seem to have no clue as to how to spell, OHIO, a key swing state.  On Tuesday, the president and his entourage stopped in at a diner located on the famed campus of Ohio State University in Columbus.  Several students, probably the cream of the crop at this football powerhouse school, teamed up with Obama to spell OHIO for a photo op.  It seems that only one of the four, and it wasn’t Obama, had their letter (or the right letter) in the right place.  When the photo was snapped, it looks more like they were spelling O-I-H-I (the media says O-I-H-O, but the last guy sure looks to be making the same I shape as the second guy.)

Will the media now crucify Obama for misspelling the name of a key swing state?  It doesn’t seem so as I only saw this when I was searching for things to write about and never heard nothing about it on any of the national media centers.  It’s sad when you realize that political careers can be made and destroyed by how the media likes them, regardless of how good or bad of a politician they are.

Dan Quayle’s political career was destroyed because the media didn’t like him and purposely sought to destroy him.  Obama has the worst presidential record in the history of the United States which would make one believe that he hasn’t a chance of re-election.  However, in spite of his record of failure, the media loves him and keeps his popularity up.  If Barack Obama gets re-elected, I believe it will be entirely due to the liberal media’s star crazed infatuation with a man who would be overthrown in any other country of the world.

    Don't hold your breath, never will obummer be held to task for what he does or doesn't know or if he is, he will laugh it off, stick his arrogant nose in the air and just keep lying to the American people. obummer should wish he had Dan Quayle's brains. And look at all the garbage that comes out of bidens mouth and nothing is said. Everyone just keeps laughing. I hope they stop laughing long enough to think about what they are voting for when it comes November.

      Watch what he does to us OUT OF OFFICE...travelling the world on our dime...God help us. Or should it be, God for give them (who voted for him)....

    • BigGeezer

      Doodlebebug... don't be so hard on obama. You must of missed the hard-hitting and in-depth interview he held with entertainment tonight and tele-mundo... not many politicians have weathered the fierce questioning that obama had to endure! Bone-rattling questions like ... 'what's your favorite color'... 'do you like bar-be-que' and 'what do you like to do when you're vacationing from being president' (and you can't say campaigning). I know I saw him sweating over those questions... but lets seriously hope the good American citizens know the truth and will run him out of the WH... our country's future is at stake.

      • Bob Belcher

        Let hope that there is enough AMERICANS that weren't dumb down and brain washed by the left to know the truth when they hear it . All the lefties Blame BUSH for the economy but the truth is the Economy was down the toilet drain Before CLINTON got out of OFFICE Then like all good lefties tried to take everything in the WHITE HOUSE with HIM. They destroyed all the Office equipment before they left and got away with it. SO WE see who the crooks and criminals are. How much damage will be done this time?

      • Doodlebug

        Now you make me sorry I missed this big event! You mean he really took off time from campaigning and golf to answer some questions that we all are wondering about. Geez, I wish I would have turned the channel so I didn't miss this crap! I hope he answered intelligently! I'm with you, run him out of the WH and in my opinion, give him a one way ticket to, where else, Kenya. We could give it to him as a farewell gift!!!

  • deeme

    Please, Greg Gutfield said the other day if he invaded Cuba they would be on his side..He is right..They have yet to ask him one tough why haven't you been to Israel, Why haven't you met with Congress to save our military..??? NOT going to happen, he has been in campaign mode from the get go..nothing else matters but that four more years of flexiblity..

    • Screeminmeeme

      deeme..........Greg always comes up with a lot of insightful and astute observations about the Prez..

      Good questions that need to thrown at the President every time he steps out of the WH. He's been in campaign mode since 2007. It's ALWAYS about HIM ....the striking characteristic of megalomaniacs.

    • Ladybug2948

      He is a Muslim!!! for crying out loud! he cannot go to Israel, not even to disguise his true 'feelings', the Muslims would not allow that! he had to sen that Moccing wife of his home before visiting those Arab countries because it is against Sharia law to travel and visit a Muslim country with his wife on a polictical visit.
      See the following and pass it on to friends and family:
      WHY MICHELLE CAME HOME – Sheppard Smith, Fox News Republican Party of
      Highlands County, FL
      Shep Smith “If you check President Obama’s last trip over-seas, his wife left just after
      their visit to France . She has yet to accompany him to any Arab country.
      Think about it. Why is Michelle returning to the states when ‘official’ trips to foreign
      countries generally include the First Lady.”

      While in a Blockbuster, I came across a video called “Obama”. Two men were standing
      next to me, and we talked about President Obama. These guys were Arabs, so I asked
      them why they thought Michelle Obama headed home following the President’s recent
      visit to France instead of traveling on to Saudi Arabia and Turkey with her husband.
      They said she could not go to Saudi Arabia , Turkey or Iraq .
      I said, “Why not, Laura Bush went to Saudi Arabia , Turkey and Dubai .”
      They said Obama is a Muslim, and therefore he is not allowed to bring his wife into
      countries that adhere to Sharia Law.

      Two points of interest here:
      1) Two American Arabs believe our President is a Muslim who follows a strict Islamic creed.
      2) They also said that’s the reason he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. It was a signal to
      the Muslim world, acknowledging his religion.

      Here is a response from Dr. Jim Murk, a Middle Eastern Scholar and expert on Islam.
      “An orthodox Muslim man would never take his wife on a politically
      oriented trip to any nation which practices Sharia law, particularly
      Saudi Arabia where the Wahhabi sect is dominant."
      This is true, and it is why Obama left Michelle in Europe . She will stay home when he
      visits Arab countries. He knows Muslim protocol; this includes, bowing to the Saudi King.
      Obama is regarded as a Muslim in the Arab world because he was born to a Muslim father.
      He acknowledged his Muslim faith to George Stephanopoulus. He downplays his involvement
      with Christianity, by not publicly joining a Christian church in D.C. and occasionally attending
      the chapel for services at Camp David . He also played down the fact that America is a
      Christian country and said, unbelievably, that it was one of the largest Muslim nations in
      the world, which is nonsense.
      He has publicly taken the side of the Palestinians in the conflict with Israel and he ignored the
      National Day of Prayer, something no other President has ever done.
      He is bad news! He conceals his true faith to the detriment of the American people.”
      — Jim Murk, Doctor of Philosophy in Middle Eastern Culture & Religion.

      ACTIONS speak louder than words. Another interesting item regarding Sharia Law.
      Why has Barack Hussein Obama insisted that the U.S. Attorney General hold the
      trials of the 911 Muslim Terrorists in Civilian Courts as Common Criminals instead
      of as Terrorists who attacked the United States of America ?
      If the Muslim Terrorists are tried in Military Tribunals, convicted and sentenced to death,
      by LAW, Barack Hussein Obama, as President of the US , would be required to sign their
      death warrants. He would not be required to sign the death warrants if they are sentenced
      to death by a Civilian Court .
      Recently, Muslim Jihadist, Army Major Hassan slaughtered non-Muslim, soldiers at Ft. Hood ,
      Texas rather than go to Afghanistan and be a part of anything that could lead to the deaths
      of fellow Muslims. He stated that Muslims ‘could not and should not kill fellow Muslims.’
      Is the motive for Barack Hussein Obama’s insistence on civilian trials to make sure he doesn’t
      have to sign the death warrants for the Muslim Terrorists? Why would he, as President of the US ,
      not sign the death warrants for Muslim Terrorists who attacked the US and murdered over 3,000
      US. citizens on 9/11?
      Could it be that he is FORBIDDEN by his RELIGION to authorize the execution of Muslims?

      Open your eyes, ears and mind to who the President is, how he behaves and what he is doing!
      Actions speak louder than teleprompter-written words .

    The photo could have been flipped left-right. Media trickery. Besides, in the YMCA dance, isn't that the symbol for A? To me, that photo looks like they are spelling O-A-H-A.

    ''If Barack Obama gets re-elected, I believe it will be entirely due to the liberal media’s star crazed infatuation with a man who would be overthrown in any other country of the world.''

    Couldn't agree more.
    And that adjective, ''crazed'', is spot-on. It explains the complete disconnect between Obama supporters and the truth about him.

    • Raymond

      Do you mean if Obama & company steal
      another election? They stole the last one.

  • Catman

    Oh give the guy(Obama) a break, didn`t he build the dictionary, not Webster?


    It was the liberal media that put this piece of work in the W. H. in the first place by not venting him and reporting anything about him.

    • Jane Horton-Leasman

      The biggest joke played on America...didn't turn out so "funny" did it. Whoever heard of electing the next leader of your Country on "Hope & Change"...with no vetting, no questions....RIDICULOUS!

      • Raymond

        Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break'? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.' He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, 'I ♥ Obama.' I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.

          Raymond - I am a conservative who is totally against Obama's corruption and lies....I did not vote for him on "08 and would not do so in 12....but you sir, do not impress me at all. You stoop to the tactics of a liberal. I do not consider your actions to be funny, but only pathetic. Evil and deceit is just as wrong whether you are a Republican Conservative or a Liberal Democrat.

        • Screeminmeeme

          1). What's makes you believe I care what you think
          about me?

          2). I don't care if you're impressed or not.

          3). I think you're a wolf trying to wear sheep's

          By the way, do you still have that "I love Obama"
          sticker on your vehicle? Just wondering.......


        • noremac

          Raymond - there you go - LOL - if you only knew - again LOL - I am not going to respond to what you "think" I am.....I will just say the thought of you caring about what I said never crossed my mind. If you have to make yourself feel good at someone elses expense then you have to live with yourself over that. Sorry if I ruffled your feathers. God knows my heart and I answer to Him and that is it. You have to live with yourself.

        • joanc

          Noremac-- Even God, would have trouble finding your heart- if you ever had one. You remind me of an old man who terrrorizes the neighborhood with his ranting, then wonders no one likes him.

        • Raymond


        • noremac

          So what you are telling me Joanc is that your so called humor or words or tactics are okay no matter how it hurts another person. Where is your heart Joanc? And I speak to Raymond as well, because he agrees with you. I do appreciate Raymond's service to our country, but that does no give license to be downright mean and then feel good about it. And Raymond did not "bring a smile to all who need one" . He no doubt brought pain to the person he bullied through the cop. It is interesting that Raymond did no wait and confront the owner of the car just to have a little talk with him. Think about it Joanc, Jesus did not hate those who put Him on the cross. He said, "Forgive them for they know not what they do." Jesus never elevated Himself at another's expense. Can you find it in your heart to understand that liberal democrats are people who were created by God just as you were. We may not like what they do or stand for, but what Raymond did, will never win that person over to our side, it will only serve to cause him to hate the cops, because he will blame the cop and be more angry at cops and conservatism.

        • nan1

          noremac, AGAIN, it was Just a Joke. I'm sure Raymond never did it & doubt very much it ever happened at all from ANY ONE. You didn't think it was funny? tough. A lot did. Get over it. Most of the time Raymond's little stories give the rest of us chuckles, even when we've seen them before. The mess the country is in, its nice to have a little humor once in a while. Even if its just made up jokes.

        • noremac

          I guess you did not want to accept my answer to you above. My comment you are now answering to was made before I received your first comment that Raymonds words were a joke. Now 2-3 hours later you berate me for something I wrote before you told me the first time it was a joke. I had thought you were being very kind to tell me that fact, but now I see you are just like all the others out there. No wonder the world is in such a mess. I am sorry, I just am amazed at the lack of graciousness an display of arrogance (which was displayed by the use of the word "tough" and "get over it") Along with others saying hateful things about me with Raymond agreeing. There is no hope for this country as long as we have such lack of agape love especially from those who advertise openly that they are Christians. If I had a misunderstanding that the Obama sticker story was nothing more than a joke, then what is it about all of you that you could not give me any slack over it? You can tell all the jokes you want to but when you have to hurt people over it, you are a long way from being in tune with the word of God. Bullying is not an attractive attribute and in fact not a fruit of the Spirit spelled out in Galatians Chapter five.

        • joanc

          Lighten up Noremac-- Humor makes the world go round, and I believe if God made man in his likeness, then it is obvious God possessed a sense of humor too. Do you go through your life wearing a frown? if so, that's your prerogative, but I prefer to be serious when the need arises, and I'll be damned if I'll let some sanctimonious old coot, try to stifle my humor or that of another person. Raymond, didn't deserve your rebuke. he has a God given talent of a wonderful sense of humor, which if you the took time to check, you'd find a large number of replies from people thanking him for the smiles he brings to everyone one, myself included. Please just find a sourpuss site, and leave Ray to his talent of making people happy.

        • noremac

          joanc - You are being cruel - Could you say all you have said about me and to me before the actual face of God? I misunderstood the Obama Sticker story as being absolutely true. I was not familiar with Raymond's antics of false story telling. Raymond could have told me the truth about the story in the beginning but he chose to berate me instead. What is wrong with you that you cannot understand my empathy for another's pain and the fact that what that story was saying to me was - it was not going to do anything to put that person who owned the car on the right path. Well - what is the use. God have mercy on all of you. You and all these others are so hurtful toward me when you do not even know me or what I do or have done with my life before God. You have not a clue as to what is in my heart and furthermore as you and Raymond and Nan1 with many others agreeing, telling me you do not care. It is time for me - to divorces myself from such haters.

        • Noremac

          joanc - I am going to say one more thing here. I am appalled over the actions of you and all those others who call themselves the Conservative Right (and I am one of those). No wonder the liberal left hates us if that is the way you all treat people. Especially when you even crucify your own....

        • joanc

        • Raymond

          Hi Joan,
          I want to congratulate you on reaching 79.
          Many people never see 79.

          Like you & millions of other people i'd like
          to see Obama the muslim leave office,
          preferably in chains. However, there are far
          more important things than who's in office.
          Like where you are going to spend eternity...
          There is only one way to heaven & that's
          through Jesus who is the Son of God.
          If you want to enter Heaven when you die
          you need to do the following....

          1). Confess to God that you're a sinner.
          2). Ask God to forgive you of all your sins.
          3). Ask Jesus to come into your heart to
          be your Lord & Saviour.

          Please watch the following:

          Jesus is The Light of The World.How to enter Heaven when you die...

        • noremac

          And it is puzzling to me Raymond, if you are who you say you are, why did you not wait for the owner of the car with the Obama sticker so that you could tell them the good news you have just related here? As a Christian, how could you not know that what you did only caused the person pain and would never do anything but make him hate cops and conservatives more than he/she does already. Raymond - that person is created and loved by God just as all the rest of us. He/she needs to know that. You seem to want to be honorable and nice to someone who is lifting you up, but do you only care about the souls of those who are elevating you? I did not see any presentation of the gospel to me, nor did that person who was the owner of that car.

        • nan1

          noremac. It was a JOKE that has been around a lot with slightly different versions, & I would really question if Raymond actually did it. He was just repeating he story. Which I think was funny.

        • Normac

          Okay - So I was completely taken in by Raymond's "joke". And everyone else played along with it including Raymond and Joanc who ridiculed me with apparent delight. Thank you for being kind and considerate enough to tell me this. The lack of caring and love on the part of others who call themselves Christians is what turns those away who might otherwise be open to the truth of the Gospel. And the abuse, whether by word or deed, of Christians toward other Christians is a sad and hurtful. May God have mercy on them. Again, thank you for helping me our here. God Bless you and I pray that you know Jesus as your Savior and will spend eternity with Him. If not, please call on Him with a contrite heart and He will answer your need. He knows us better than we even know ourselves. Our hope is in Him. He will never leave us or forsake us. He is your creator and the decider of your destiny, therefore we must be aware of what He expects of us while we are on this earth. Your decision as to whether to follow Him or not determines your eternal destiny. I pray for you.

        • joanc

          Thanks Ray - I will watch the Story of Jesus. I am a Catholic and hope I lived a life that will allow me to enter Heaven.

      Those kinds of things media, improper vetting, etc.
      For my money, the REAL problem are the people who are obligated to be checks and balances on this lawless make sure he stays in bounds, and were too cowardly to do so.

      We know what he is, and most of us knew that before he was elected.
      The real problem is them..they hold the Constitution in as much contempt as he does.

      Lindsay Graham: "Elections have consequences." that is, except his. Which brings us to another problem:

      "But I go on this great republican principle, that the people will have virtue and
      intelligence to select men of virtue and wisdom. Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks, no form of government, can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea. If there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men; so that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them." -- James Madison 1788 — speech at the Virginia Ratifying Convention Reference: The True Republican, French, ed. (28-29)

      God bless

        • Noremac

          History 101 - America is a Christian nation because it was specifically founded on Christian Principles from of all things God's Holy Word. Those who settled here and who were the first leaders and law makers used the Bible as their guide for all matters of government including the laws that they made. They used the word of God continually as they spoke in the halls of the government and wrote in the papers they published. No other so called god was ever entertained as the champion of the people who settled here to get away from the tyranny of religious oppression. The freedom of Christianity towers above all other beliefs because it is a love relationship between man and God/Jesus/Holy Spirit who are one. We have a president who is trying to stop this freedom because of His lack of understanding of what Christianity is all about. He chooses to (along with a lot of the rest of you) deny the truth of Christianity and what it has done for this nation. We have, over the short span of our history, been able to progress in accomplishment faster than any nation has during the accumulative lifetime of this earth , while giving more freely to help others around the world than anyone has ever done. Jealous nations of peoples have not been happy because we have done so well. But instead of giving over themselves to the God who made it all possible, they would rather do there best to try and wipe us off the map. I see that we now have a president who is among those who want to bring this country down. But we have a mighty God and if He so chooses to allow this country to fall, it will because the people will have turned away from Him and gone to their own gods. This is what happened to His chosen people over and again. He will not treat us any different. He is still the same God today as He was in Biblical times. Wake up people and stop going against the God who love you and offers in His mercy to you if you will humble yourselves and turn from your wicked and evil ways.

          "America is a Christian nation"

          This is no longer true.

        • Raymond

          Is America STILL a Christian nation?
          Let's examine the evidence. Raymond

          In America, murdering a child in the mothers womb is called a "Civil Right." God calls this action murder & promises to judge all those involved in such evil.

          In America, politicians make laws that make it a
          federal crime to expose them.

          In America, burning the national flag is called a 'Civil Right."
          In America, you can be arrested for reciting the pledge of allegiance.
          In America, you can be expelled from school for wearing a shirt that has the America flag on it.
          In America, burning the Bible is called a "Civil Right," but burning the Qur'an is called a "Hate Crime."
          In America, the sins of homosexuality & lesbianism is called a "Civil Right." God calls it an abomination & promises to judge all who are involved in such evil.
          In America, sodomites are allowed & encouraged to have paradescelebrating their wickedness.
          In America, it's a "Hate Crime" for heterosexuals to have a parade celebrating their heterosexuality.
          In America, telling the truth about Islam will get you arrested.
          In America, protecting yourself & your family against an attacker can get you arrested.
          In America, God's Word is called "Hate Material."
          In America, talking about God's Laws is called "Hate Speech."
          In America, many in power are involved in voter fraud.
          In America, profanity is called "Free Speech."
          In America, placing a cross in a jar of urine is called "Freedom of Expression."
          In America, you can be arrested for reading the Bible in public.

          In America, sexual assault on a child is legal at the airport.
          In America, you can be fined for having an "offensive" bumper sticker on your vehicle. Of course homosexuals & lesbians will be the ones to determine what's "offensive".

        • noremac

          Yes Raymond you are correct about what you say is happening in America....that is why I said what I did at the end of my comment...we as a nation are turning away from God and we have elected a president who is helping to accomplish that evil. But until this nation has (as a collective people) set aside the word of God and banished Him from the halls of government, and worship false God's openly above the God of Creation, we are still Christian in practice as a nation. We still Give God honor in the halls of our government though individuals do not. There is much evil in America and it is growing to be sure. I do believe however, there is still a chance for revival if we will (as I said above) humble ourselves and turn from our evil ways. If that does not happen, we are doomed and will be judged mightily upon the return of Christ. That event may be sooner than later if this country does not repent. So if we are not a Christian nation Raymond what are we?

        • nan1

          Isn't it a shame that right after 911 so many people flocked to their churches to pray for the ones lost & give thanks for the ones not? Didn't seem like it was long that so many quit going to their churches & back to their old ways. Of course now we have a prez that will not honor things like "World Day of Prayer" but will have muslim deals right at the White House. And our prez thinks abortion, even late term is completely acceptable, even IF the baby is born alive nothing should be done to save or even comfort it in its last minutes or hours, just throw the aborted baby in the trash can. And of course, he is pushing his hardest to make gay marriage legal all over the country. It is so sad ho much the country has sunk in just the past few years. God have mercy on us!

        • Pastafarian

          The very first law of the land is the forbidding of establishing a national religion. Buddhists, Mormons, Scientologists, Jews, Muslims and Athiests are all Americans and have the right not to live under Christian rule. This concept was so important to the founders that they made this the first right in the Bill of Rights.

        • Patrick Oxford

          America is a Christian nation. It allows, even welcomes all religions. But, as was mentioned above, this country was established by Christians. The Christian God is mentioned in the Constitution. Our rights are God given, not lent to us by the government who could take them away at any time. If you are an atheist, that is your religion, and it too is welcome. As a Christian I know that God gave all of us free will. You have your "religion", but, the United States of America is a Christian nation

        • Pastafarian

          Many Americans are not christian. It's our country too.

        • Patrick Oxford

          Yes, it is your country too, but the rights you enjoy are God given rights, as per the Constitution.

        • noremac

          Pastafarian - First of all Christianity is not a religion. It is a way of life that protects us from religion. You do not understand what Christian is. Absolutely it is your country too. And that is why as a Christian nation we have taken in all who want to come here and have helped millions around the world who are in need. We want you and others to know the freedom that Christianity gives. We as a Christian nation recognize the sinfulness of man as spelled out in God's word, and therefore we have to live under specific laws to keep order and protect our nation from those who would violate the laws that every man should want to follow. Until a person allows the Holy Spirit to speak to him/her about their need to confess the sin that has been and is in control of them and responds by letting Jesus enter into their life to take away that sin and replace it with the God Head, then that person is under the direction of Satan. However, that is the choice of each individual and God of Christianity does not force it onto anyone. As a Christian nation, we have always been open to letting people know of their need to repent and come to Christ in order to enjoy fully what Christianity can do for those who are in need as well as yourself. If you live in this nation, you must live under the laws of this nation or pay the consequences. Christianity was and is the basis of the laws of this nation, but Christianity is not and never was a national religion because it is not a religion. We have a merciful God who wants us to fall in love with Him because He loved us first. We are to worship Him in spirit and in truth as the Holy Spirit directs. He is a God who wants us to have a relationship with Him. But in this nation if one wants to set up his own religion that freedom is given. When (God forbid) one or more of these religions takes over this country it will cease to become a Christian nation.

        • Robert H. Woodman

          Let me suggest that you read Alexis de Tocqueville's book On Democracy in America. He is quite clear in pointing out that the Founding Fathers adopted nearly all of the principles of the Enlightenment except ... guess what? ... the anti-religious principles. On matters of religion, de Tocqueville is quite clear that America accepts all religions but is founded explicitly upon Christian principles. Moreover, it is a general thesis of de Tocqueville's writings that democracy without an underlying moral framework rooted in Judeo-Christian ethics WILL fail.

          So, Mr. Pastafarian, all religions are welcomed and, with exceptions for some religious practices (e.g. snake handling, polygamy, human sacrifice), all religions and religious practices are tolerated. Having said that, though, America was a nation founded on Christian moral principles and Judeo-Christian ethics, and as long as it stays that way, your non-Christian religion is safe. When those underlying moral principles and ethics are sacrificed in the name of religious pluralism, then no religion is safe except whatever religion holds dominant political power.

          Obozo is an "O" idiot. He's far dumber than Dan Qualye. Dan Qualye is a brain surgeon compared to obozo, the clown 'idiot' of America. How is it that can obozo read a book on treason for dummies? Couse he doesn't know what to do or how to do it. He has to get written instructions off Billy boy, Hitlery and Bite Me. That's how stupid he is. This is what he calls his cabinet meeting. George Soras controls every more obozo makes. Soras is the puppetmaster.

He bypasses congress and signs orders and laws without consent of the governed. He gets away with all this - PLEASE LISTEN - he gets away with it NOT because he is stupid. He gets away with it because America has become stupid. Right now America is a little confused, but in 4 to 8 more years they will forget and elect another like him. PLEASE reconsider who exactly the idiots are.

      The International Olympic Committee announced
      today that it has taken back the gold medal previously
      awarded to American skier Lindsey Vonn and given it
      to U.S. President Barack Obama.

      Olympic officials said Obama deserved the medal

      The flash card that the school had prepared for the spelling bee, spelled "potato" with an "e",( ie "potatoe"). Incidently Mr. Quayle went with the flashcard misspelling and paid dearly for something that the school had screwed up. Why wasn't the school ridiculed, as they are the ones supposedly teaching the students?

      • Nathan51

        If you dig a little deeper you will find that Dan actually questioned the spelling at the time. The judges told him it was right and so he went with it in spite of his better judgement. The Leftist propagandist in the media chose to leave out this bit of information from every reporting of the incident. They also chose to omit the fact that either spelling is considered correct. The spelling with the e on the end is considered an Old English spelling. Now who are the real idiots here?

    • David E Langdon

      I always learned to spell Potato with or without an E. We have a restaurant here in Spring Texas called tThe Potatoe Patch } I never understood the big deal over the spelling by Quayle. Obama on the other hand does not even know how many states we have. Was Ohio on the teleprompter? God Bless us all and The USA, we need Him now more than ever

    Let me ask something. Does anyone every walk into the newsrooms and talk to the Editor of the newspapers or the program managers of TV stations about this. They should be confronted face to face just to see how they react. Commenting about it is nice. But, these newspaper and stations have to pay a price. Confronting them directly, on this subject and many other subjects where they are totally biased, is the only way to change things. Embarrass them. Have a couple of people standing close by with cell phone cameras to record their answers. Then post it all over the internet. If we're not willing to do this then I'm afraid nothing will change.

    • Pepe2

      Agree completely. The comments are all true and great but nothing will ever change

  • metheoldsarge

    If Dan Quayle was a Democrat we would now be spelling potato with an "E". Looks like we are going to have to change all our maps to read Oiho. Perhaps we should cut a few states in half to make 58 States. Don't want the President to look stupid now do we?

  • HawkCW4

    All this proves again and again just how hypocritical and two faced Liberals are. In there ridiculous arrogance, believing anything they do is acceptable to all, they over look serious mistakes or gaffs from Liberal leaders while at the same time crucifying a Conservative for much minor such mistakes or gaffs. How a Liberal can look him/herself in the mirror, or sleep at night is beyond belief. One can only justify this by knowing just how seriously mind bent they really are. They are not to be trusted, they have no honor, they care nothing for honor nor those who have earned such honor. The white house cant be cleaned out of these leaders of the wrong soon enough.

        You are absolutely right, but once upon a time liberalism was honorable and the liberals were good and caring people who wanted America to become a better place for everybody. That was before the lefties hijacked the democrat party and blackened the word liberalism which today is synonymous with socalism and even closer to communism. I lament that the proud American political party known as the democrat party that once lived up to the now false claim of being the party of the people has fallen so low. Sadly the republican party has taken that spot and become the party of the people.

    Technically, potato used to be spelled potatoe. As with many words through the centuries the "e" was dropped and is now considered a misspelling. obama's "brilliance" shines through every time he goes off teleprompter. Besides his radical anti-American leanings, no wonder his school records are sealed.

    I think the reason why nothing was said over and over again because if it were that would have been consider a racist remark.

    I think he was trying to spell it O-BA-M-A. In his mind, (ego), he believes he is greater than any person or state and that they should worship him. If the only word they can spell or read is O-BA-M-A, he figgures he can't loose the election. Too bad some of us can read already.

    I sure wish we could point out the intransigence of the media as just an aberration but it happens all the time...but only if you have an "R" after your name. If enough people get ticked enough to quit listening to or reading the clap-trap from "mainstream media" maybe they'll get the idea that integrity should dictate their reporting. I wouldn't hold my breath for that to happen, though. It's ingrained in liberal thought that --- since they're right about everything -- they have the privilege to slant news as much as possible.

    Obama is responsible for some tremendous gaffes, but this is not quite one of them. If you look carefully at the picture, you can see they have the letters in the right order from the direction they are facing. What they obviously didn't realize is that from the perspective of someone standing in front of them with a camera, what those four think is running left to right is, from the camera's perspective, running right to left. So what this picture actually shows is that the two people in the middle were doing just the opposite of what they should have been doing (can't really judge the people on the ends since Ohio begins and ends with an "o". So what this amounts to is that the two in the middle don't seem to be able to see themselves as others see them. That is essentially the core of Obama's problem.

  • golfcrackerjack

    Actually, The Ohio State is hard to get in -- it's become a much-sought-after and excellent university (whatever that is these days). Nevertheless as a long-time president of a large out-of-state OSU alumni club, when I saw this picture I assumed someone had reversed it to a "mirror-image" version. In fact, if held in a mirror, it look like that's what happened. Then as my worldwide blogger spouse (Google "Hump Day, Hawaii"> -- her blog comes up #1) a fanatic Ohio State fan, pointed out to me that Obama's wristwatch is depicted on his left hand -- where he wears it. So no mirror-image. She told me that the photographer followed up with the O-H-I-O depicted correctly. But will Obama be ridiculed? Heck no, he picked such a dunce as his own VP that Obama looks Socratic by comparison. But what I pray is that three wise but smart-ass Buckeyes conned our con-man President into posing for a "potatoe" photo that would go viral. But a much more meaningful story is his recent refinery shill in Philadelphia. An objectively impeachable offense. Again, almost no coverage. So... folks, start giving to Romney. He may not be perfect, but he's not Barry/Barack. And I pray every Buckeye who sees Obama in full fool form either stays home or votes for Romney. This con man needs to go.

    Maybe the Buckeyes should have had their marching band on hand to spell out OHIO for Obama since he obviously had no idea.

    He probably should NOT try to go to Boston, lest someone ask him to spell the name of the Bay State.......... That could be ugly.......and then there is always PENNSYLVANIA......

    I'll bet he can spell every Islamic country though

    When I went to school, about the same time as good old Dan, we were taught to spell potato with an e on the end so when they went after Dan it was from pure meanness as most of the MSM knew this fact before they made it national news. Obama on the other hand has been in cities and not known the state he was in, misspelled Ohio, had us with 57 states, doesn't know where states are and has west coast sates up by ILL and the list goes on and on. Not once has the MSM pointed out just how uneducated the man really is. No wonder he paid millions to conceal his school records. I bet they aren't close to C,s.

    when I went to school both tomato and potato was acceptable with an e at the end ....
    I believe it was a form of the old english but I know both were correct ....
    obama ... is just wrong period! for anything to do with America or it's meaning ...
