I dont know why you lefties have no sense of humor. He was a riot. The President did a good job too. This is something all of us should be able to enjoy and find amusing and you guys just what to be a sour puss for some reason.Based on the thread title I thought this was going to be about his constant flip flopping.
My biggest problem is y'all aren't giving enough credit to the people that wrote the jokes.
Who ever wrote them, they were not delivered on a teleprompter.My biggest problem is y'all aren't giving enough credit to the people that wrote the jokes.
It was Biden.My biggest problem is y'all aren't giving enough credit to the people that wrote the jokes.
Note cards are the teleprompters of yesteryear.Who ever wrote them, they were not delivered on a teleprompter.
Your President said:The choice between going backward and moving forward has never been so clear. But now that were 18 days out from the election, Mr. Severely Conservative -- (laughter) -- wants you to think he was severely kidding about everything he said over the last year. (Laughter.) He told folks he was the ideal candidate for the Tea Party. Now suddenly hes saying, what, who, me? (Laughter.) Hes forgetting what his own positions are, and hes betting that you will, too.
I mean, hes changing up so much and backtracking and sidestepping -- (laughter) -- weve got to name this condition that hes going through. I think its called Romnesia. (Laughter and applause.) Thats what its called. I think thats what hes going through.
Now, Im not a medical doctor, but I do want to go over some of the symptoms with you -- because I want to make sure nobody else catches it. (Laughter and applause.) If you say youre for equal pay for equal work, but you keep refusing to say whether or not youd sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal work -- you might have Romnesia. (Laughter and applause.)
If you say women should have access to contraceptive care, but you support legislation that would let your employer deny you contraceptive care - you might have a case of Romnesia. (Applause.)
If you say youll protect a womans right to choose, but you stand up at a primary debate and said that youd be delighted to sign a law outlying -- outlawing that right to choose in all cases - man, youve definitely got Romnesia. (Applause.)
Now, this extends to other issues. If you say earlier in the year, Im going to give a tax cut to the top 1 percent and then in a debate you say, I dont know anything about giving tax cuts to rich folks -- you need to get a thermometer, take your temperature, because youve probably got Romnesia. (Applause.)
If you say that youre a champion of the coal industry when, while you were governor you stood in front of a coal plant and said, this plant will kill you -- (laughter) --
THE PRESIDENT: -- thats some Romnesia. (Applause.)
So I think youre being able -- youre beginning to be able to identify these symptoms. And if you come down with a case of Romnesia, and you cant seem to remember the policies that are still on your website -- (laughter) -- or the promises youve made over the six years youve been running for President, here's the good news: Obamacare covers preexisting conditions. (Laughter and applause.) We can fix you up. We've got a cure. We can make you well, Virginia. (Applause.) This is a curable disease. (Laughter.)
