CNN Reporter Asks Obama If GOP Candidates Are “Uninformed, Out Of Touch, Or Irresponsible?”

I caught this question earlier today on Keith Koffler’s site, but you really have to see the video to believe it:

“Last night at the Republican debate, some of the hopefuls, they hope to get your job, they defended the practice of waterboarding which is a practice you banned in 2009. Herman Cain said, quote, ‘I don’t see that as torture.’ Michele Bachmann said that it’s, quote, ‘very effective.’ So I’m wondering if you think that they’re uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?” CNN’s White House correspondent Dan Lothian asked President Obama in Hawaii.

I’m told the follow up question was, “Do you think you’re awesome, really awesome or super-duper awesome?”

    As is often said——this country can survive an occasional Obama from the Democrats……

    (Woodrow Wilson, FDR, LBJ, Clinton, Carter….well on 2nd thought… the list is getting rather long)….

    …….but this country cannot long survive a majority of those willing to yet vote again for an Obama…..

    The adults cannot forever clean up after the adolescents….its ok when they just run a stop sign, but once the car goes over the cliff——-its over…….the Obama regime is steering in that direction on purpose.

    Yes we can, Yes we can, Yes we can, Yes we can, Yes we can. Chant while crying hysterically and you will get the full affect of what it means to be an Obama supporter.

      What does that have to do with the question?  Do you support water-boarding?  I don’t believe Ron Paul does.

      • Jamermorrow

        Absolutely nothing except that it is super obvious that Obama can do no wrong in the media’s eyes. Hell no I don’t support water boarding it is torture. I also think Obama has been way wrong on Gitmo, Assassinations, the wars, patriot act, border patrol, TSA, etc… The one area I though he would do well in has been as bad as George Bush or worse. People that blindly support a politician are annoying.

    Obama is the stereotypical lazy shiftless negro.

    What’s funnier is that BHO didn’t have his teleprompter and couldn’t think of an answer to the question. He actually said, “that’s a multiple choice question”, brilliant.

    Is it just me or does Obama look like he’s been hitting the chronic a little in that picture?  Quick, someone get him some Doritos.

      I saw that picture earlier and saved it for a possible future p-shop, and as I was saving it, I noticed that the name given to the photo at that site made a thinly veiled drug reference.

    I think it’s rather hilarious that Obama is such a complete and total failure as a President, that the only chance he has for reelection is to get his sycophants in the media to stand up and lie to the American people on his behalf.

    • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

      What are you going to say when the best you can do is put up a non conservative, Romney, for a candidate?  You think Fox News is going to lie to the American people on his behalf?

    We’re hoping that one of the reporters might pop up with a question about the upcoming election. Dan, do you think you can memorize this by dinnertime tomorrow?

    President Obama: Your campaign seems to have the momentum of a runaway freight train. Why are you so popular?

    White House Spokesperson:
    Very good.
