BarryO, the Jewish janitor, the London-to-New York train ride, and the 57th U.S. State


I’m concerned. Judging from the latest news coverage,  either BarryO is falling apart emotionally and psychologically, or his teleprompter is in full revolt.

I started my investigation into all of this by checking in with the teleprompter’s blog and Twitter feed.  (No real clues there about these recent incidents.)

At a recent speech in Ohio, BarryO got stuck in the middle of a speech, like a scratched record ( “I-I-I-I-I-I …” ).   While out on the road promoting his soak-the-rich “Buffett tax proposal,” BarryO let loose with a doozy:

‘If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew, as a janitor, makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honour. I have no problem with that. It’s about time,’ he said.

Barry also got his geographical terms confused:

In Ohio on Thursday, the president touted America as the country that built ‘the Intercontinental rail road’. Clearly, the fact that no rail road crosses oceans to reach other continents was overlooked.

America’s first transcontinental rail road was built during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln- who Mr. Obama publicly admires. However, this is the second time this year that Mr. Obama misused the word ‘intercontinental’.

Conservative pundit and radio host Rush Limbaugh was quick to discuss Saturday’s gaffe on his show Monday morning, and was quick to bring two controversial Obama supporters into the debate.

‘So he was confusing Jew with janitor, and he admits that,’ Mr Limbaugh said Monday. ‘Just think how outraged the Reverends Wright and Farrakhan would be if they heard Obama say that Jews were paying too much in taxes like he thinks the janitors probably are.’

His most famous geography gaffe occurred during the 2008 campaign:

“It is wonderful to be back in Oregon,” Obama said. “Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.”

Okay.  I think we need to get “60 minutes” on the case.  They need to check the teleprompter’s bank account for payments from Republicans. They need to inquire about all that time the teleprompter has spent in Palm Springs at Rush Limbaugh’s estate.

It HAS to be a conspiracy led by the teleprompter.  It is sabotaging Barry.

(After all, he can’t be as dumb as he sounds, can he?  Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw and Katie Couric and their friends have spent SO much time telling us how smart Barry is.)

The machine MUST pay.
