Racist

While hosting Ireland's Prime Minister at the White House on Saint Patrick's Day...
Obama joked about the free-flowing bar and warned his guests not to wear lampshades on their heads in front of the cameras.
I might find Barry's "joke" a lot funnier if he said it while performing a little minstrel show with his hand in a bucket of fried chicken - but I guess I'm just one of those ill-mannered, drunk Irishmen.

Uh oh. Breda is angry. And you know how combative those of Hibernian ilk can get. Look out! She'll be throwing drunken punches!

I realize I'm not Irish...but the whole assumptionm that every Irish person is a drunk is old and annoying. My experience over there was that the Irish laughs their arses off at the American tourists who get tanked and then can't remember how to get back to their hotel.

The only friend I have from Ireland... doesn't drink, actually. He's a health nut and a fighter. Weird.

But I loves me some drunken antics!

Do as I say, not as I do is rearing it's head... sigh... And anybody that calls them on it, gets labeled racists!

Uh, OK. So will PM Cowen serve Obama some watermelon next time he comes to Ireland? Or ask if he brought his crack pipe?

Joseph said...

Hey, is Obama going to take all 4 years to piss off the rest of the free world, or is he going to finish it by the end of the year?

He's a health nut and a fighter

Well, he's not THAT far off the mark, now? Irish, fighting, boxing, shleiligh, etc...

Heath said...

Depending on the timing of those remarks, Cowen could've went with the Hey BOY, this is your speech.

Tit for tat.

Way to "transcend" race, retard.

Maybe next year they'll go to Dublin for fried chicken?

Oh,, but it's ok that Obama made that stereotypical Irish joke. He revealed during the early remarks to the press that HE is, in fact, Irish as well.

He is everything to everyone.

Truly a savior for our time.

Now ZerObama is 2 for 2.

President Obama, in his taping with Jay Leno Thursday afternoon, attempted to yuk it up with the funnyman, and ended up insulting the disabled.

Obama couldn't add lib his way out of a paper bag even if he was the "Unknown Comic"... The more he speaks the more Bush sounds smart.

Mr. President, here are some lyrics to an Irish song:
"And the rifles crash
and the bayonets flash
to the echo of a Thompson gun"

Whats up with that smug look on his face? Its almost like he "let one go" and is waiting for somebody to catch a whiff...

SpeakDog said...

Anon: That is his "presidential messiah" look. He adopts it any time he thinks there's a camera around.

Obama is Oirish? Would he be related to the Donegal O'bama's then?
