Obama Repeats Arizona Law Blunder Before Reading Arizona Law
Iowa Townhall Meeting Ice Cream "Scare" Speech
This morning, I watched an interview on Fox News – you know that bastion of only conservative views…and I admit, I was stunned by something I just heard out of the mouth of a guest Bill Hemmer had on his program, August 28, 2010 in the 9:00 am Eastern hour.
I was unable to get the guest’s name as of this writing, but will update this Hub with the specific information the moment I am able to obtain it (the Fox website didn’t have that information yet).
I do know what I heard from someone Hemmer called a judge and who seemed to have specific knowledge (as an insider would ) from within the Obama administration. The guest spoke with confidence, not prefacing, "I believe" or "It would seem" or anything of the sort.
At one point Hemmer asked the guest what he believed the ruling would be regarding the lawsuit the Federal Government had filed against Arizona.
What wasn’t so obvious was the stunning statement the guest made right after Hemmer showed a similar video to what I have here. The Obama Arizona Ice Cream speech he gave in a stacked Townhall gathering in Iowa was identical, just from another camera point of view.
In the video, President Obama describes the Arizona law as he knew it at the time. “You can…you can…this law that just passed in Arizona, which I think is a poorly conceived law…” [applause, applause] He goes on to explain that someone who could have had relatives here since before Arizona was a state could be forced, by law enforcement, to produce proof of citizenship while simply on an ice-cream outing with one’s family.
According to Hemmer’s guest this morning, President Obama made that speech, before reading the law and the guest went on to say that now [President Obama] knows what he said there was wrong.
Excuse me? President Obama now knows that what he said in that speech was wrong, that what his Administration officials have been repeating over and over – while these officials themselves admitted to not have read the law either, is wrong?
So President Obama didn’t read the law, made at least one
speech we can see right here about this law and his denunciation of it, but has
given zero retraction regarding his stupid…ahem…mistaken
What about all of those in the audience who applauded? Have they now read the law and realize that what President Obama said wasn’t true?
Has there been a constant hail of reporting by the old-stream media informing the American people that 1) President Obama has consistently commented on a law and denounced that law that he had not yet read?
2) That this fear mongering and misinformation that the President and his administration has been beating the drum about is consistently wrong yet despite knowing this they have not corrected that wrong yet?
3) Has our brilliant constitutional law genius of a President made yet still another blunder with regard to something in the area of his expertise?
Oh wait, he just shot off his Presidential mouth before even reading the law so we can’t attribute this blunder to stupidity now, can we? He hadn’t even read it yet! That’s not dumb! It’s not like he read it and then still made the mistake. I see it all clearly now!
Oooh this President is such a smarty pants! He’s such a scholar! You know, as compared to President George W. Bush or say John Kerry who can’t find anyone to fix his boat in the whole coastal state he’s from of Massachusetts…
Yep, we got us some real intellectual giants right there!
How many more videos like this one below are we going to have to make about this President and his shoot from the hip type of leadership? Ready FIRE --- AIM!
Disclaimer regarding video below: I am not implying that President Obama is a pig. The name of the person/persons/group who made this video are called "TVPIGS" - thus apparently, the pig cartoon characterization of Mr. Obama.
