I believe he asked which way to the first tee.

Meade said...

Nice catch.

Ann Althouse said...

Yes, thanks.

EMD said...

I could snark, but this could happen to anyone at any time.

David said...

If you click through to You Tube, the next video up is some female explaining that Obama has been replaced with a body double. The photos prove it!

(Wishful thinking.)

Meade said...

Yes, you're welcome.

Coketown said...

Never one to limit himself to false choices, he's perfectly aware that down is also an option.

Did he sound a wee bit annoyed and impatient to you? Not a guy who sounded happy to be there and pleased to have the opportunity to shake a few more hands.

You're up and you're down; you're in and you're out...

edutcher said...

According to the Larry Summers memos, he hasn't known what to do for the last 4 years.

ALH said...

"To the far left, Mr. President."

madAsHell said...

Wow...he pointed to his right?!?!?

I guess so, but I'd rather save my outrage for important stuff, like Michelle's toned arms!

PD Quig said...

I'd be happy to tell him where to go. In fact, if he loses in November we're planning on flying to D.C. for the inauguration so we can sing, "Sha-na-na-na, sha-na-na-na, hey-hey, goodbye"

EDH said...

"Blow in my ear I'll follow you anywhere."

Writ Small said...

The tag "Obama stumbles" was highly misleading. So disappointed.

shiloh said...

"was highly misleading."

Maybe Althouse is trying to be like Huffington Compost whose headlines are also misleading/hyperbolic, but HP, like here, has a built in audience, so why mislead.

Suffice it to say as long as Althouse is keeping track of his every move.

Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer ...

I saw at his last formal news conference (before changing channels) that he'd adopted the Clinton Wiggle Walk. Did he do that tonight?

Lem said...

Show Me The Way

I wake up each morning and turn on the news to find we've so far to go
And I keep on hoping for a sign, so afraid that I just won't know


Show me the way, Show me the way
Take me tonight to the mountain
And wash my confusion away..

This is the president of US.. No other office or title is more fit for snark.. maybe the queen of England tops it.. and the pope.

Lem said...

This is what they mean when they say presidents "grow in office".

Obama didn't need his prompter there.

Indigo Red said...

In the end, he went left.

Joe Schmoe said...

He even needs a teleprompter to tell him where to go.

Paul said...

I can tell him that in November people will decide which way we go, and going down the tubes the Obama way won't be it.

Pogo said...

I don't bother listening to his speeches, or reading them, because I have learned that everything he says is a lie, part of a lie, or in service to a lie.

I don't have the time or interest to decipher them. And what's the point?

Pogo said...

I repeat: the first black President has reintroduced slavery to the US.

First it's fiscal: penury even unto our great-grandchildren.

Then watch as they restrict our ability to travel with money or gold, militarize and federalize the police, the TSA stops you on highways and walkways, Predator Drones used to spy on citizens, and more.

We're close to a lockdown. All they need is an excuse; a terrorist bombing or somesuch.

Yeah, yeah, all paranoid black helicopter shit.

But half the people here wouldn't put their names on a whitehouse.gov petition. What's that about, if not such privacy concerns?

First fiscal slavery, then real slavery. Thanks, Barry.

And I for one welcome our new State overlords.

Rusty said...

Oh the echo chamber that is Madison.



Say what you want. Dream the impossible dream, but come November, Barrak Obama will no longer be president.
it will be interesting to see who the Dems will put up against him.

Lem said...

I've only worked for 3 employers all my life..

The first I left him to do bigger and better tings..

The second let me go in 2009.. and the third let me go last night.

A silver lining for the president is that I didn't vote for him in 2008.. because.. even should Romney Newt or whoever implode, explode or ask his wife for an open marriage.. again and again.. I will not be voting for Obama.

Jay said...

Which way am I going?


To the left.

Hard left.

Pogo said...

Shit; I'm very sorry to hear that, Lem.

Lem said...

Pelosi's bimbo eruption.

Is Pelosi trying to help Newt get the nomination because she believes Obama would have a better chance against Newt?

Its conventional wisdom.. even here ;)

Lem said...

Thanks

I'll be alright.

I wasn't crazy about the job anyway.

Joe Schmoe said...

Too bad, Lem. Hope something good comes your way.

LOL. Of course. Con man.

Con man gotta con.

Am I repeating myself.

Last night at dinner, I asked Mrs. Tank if she was going to watch. Hilarity ensued.

Ann, thanks for watching so we don't have to.

Lem said...

The question is why now?

If this is so good politically for them why not wait until Newt gets the nomination?

Maybe there is nothing there.

Lem said...

I mean.. whoever heard of a January surprise?

Unless this is coming from the panicked establishment republicans we have been hearing so much about lately.

paminwi said...

There's a cliff over here, Mr. President. Can I help you off?

Rusty said...

Sorry to hear that Lem. I hope something turns up for you soon.

"Which way am I going?"

Into the ditch.

Reminds me of a joke I heard recently.

"A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him,

"Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49..09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican.

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be an Obama-Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are -- or where you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."

I love the last line, Cornroaster.
