Fox News (In a Sad Attempt) Tries to Burn Obama

In the latest Fox News report, it tried to embarrass Obama for saying “Wellesley-an” in his commencement speech today. They seem to acknowledge it was a joke, and they also add that Senior Class President Rashida Richardson made the same joke in her speech. However, they are pissed that it wasn’t caught on tape (except by our own staff member, Beau “Spazeboy” Anderson), and seem to forget that they actually made the mistake of getting us confused with Hilary Clinton’s alma matter, Wellesley.

    Isn’t Obama the same guy who mispronounced Massachusetts as “Massatoosits” in the last debate?Twice?I’m not so sure it was intentional.

    Twice?

    I’m not so sure it was intentional.

    Ha ha, he also didn’t know he was in “Sunrise” FL;, twice called it “Sunshine”. “Good Morning Sunshine!”OK, I’m just having a little fun; I’ve already conceeded the point that yesterday’s blurb was a joke. ” This video pretty well settles the matter.”

    9:57 says a joke for sure but then goes absurd on us with an appeal to Obama’s eloquence and intelligence as if the dude couldn’t have a brain fart. Also, why did the Obama campaign cut the portion in question from the official Obama video on You Tube?

    Are you guys stupid? The moment he said wellesley-an he looked up with a smile to the crowd. It was definitely a joke.

    ^^^^^^^ it was without a doubt a joke. i was sitting extremely close and it was very clear it was a joke. he’s too eloquent of a speaker and too intelligent of a person in general to just happen to mispronounce the name of a place he was talking at.

    I think it was pretty clearly a misspeak. Which is very ironic, but there is it. Certainly Obama knows that Wellesley and Wes are two different schools… but I was there and it really, really didn’t sound like he was making a joke.

    Rashida definitely did it on purpose and she’s also senior class president, not student body president.

    Viewers could be forgiven for thinking it was a verbal gaffe as Obama dead-panned the remark. The crowd laughed, not surprisingly ,since the college’s own student body president accidentally referred to it as “Wellesley” in the remarks that immediately preceded Obama’s speech.wow these people are dumb
