Obama momentarily missteps (maybe) then quickly recovers footing

view at youtube

Despite being evidence of a confident and resilient President, this youtube video — ardently tagged “Obama falls on camera!” — seems to have become the delight of Obama Haters everywhere, from whom it inspires such comments as...

He wasn’t falling... He was stealing the hubcaps.


Looks like hes [sic] dodging a bullet. One could only wish.

What a stupid, pathetic, ugly race US Americans can sometimes be.

Sadly Jacob, it is not only Americans. One has only to look at the venom that both Howard and latterly Rudd have copped to realise that some people take politics way too personally. It is one thing to make comments about a policy, but it gets far to creepy for me when you see people wishing that a politician would catch a disease, or wosre still die.

bizarre stuff

Good to hear from you, Craig. Yes, it really does get bizarre.

For instance, when a recent vice-presidential candidate (and possible future presidential aspirant?) seems to incite such an extremist mindset with that "time to reload" cant. Then pleads, oh no incitement intended, folks! Sheesh.

Equally mystified as to why someone would drop a Hesse quote here anonymously. But I'd probably be sorry if I asked... :-)
