Obama Forgets Biden’s Name

by Keith Koffler on February 21, 2012, 2:28 pm

During an event on the payroll tax this morning at the White House, President Obama appeared to momentarily forget the name of his vice president.

The lapse occurs right at the beginning of the video below. As you’ll see, he hesitates for just a moment between “vice president” and “Biden.” The vice president appears to recognize the slip and laughs it off.

Now, imagine the reaction if Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush did this . . .

“Bush Tax Cuts” –bad
“Obama Tax Cuts” –good.

How about our elected officials quit playing shell games with taxes for their own political gains and stop spending money that isn’t theirs?

Narcissism luxe: “MY Vice-President”, “Members of MY cabinet”
And again, lends himself to satire.

They must have had trouble loading “Biden” onto the teleprompter.

Why do those people seem so nervously “posed?” Carney with a cattle prod of something?

their stagecraft is always horrible. One would think they could get advice from some of their Hollywood lefties on putting on a better show.

I remember the results of a poll that showed most Americans have no idea who VPBiden is or what he does. MrO must have been one of those polled.

I can’t listen. Without the promptor he’s even worse.

Who are all the props behind him? Lovely hot pink turban on the one guy. Also, his shirt color is terible on him.

It is just for appearance sake. These stage characters all fit his idea of diversity. Remember when his people went out and bought white coats for all the “doctors” in the audience of one of his health care propaganda speeches…
