Desperation: Obama tells supporters to hit mute button or fast forward through ads about him on TV

Wow. Obama really told his supporters at a rally yesterday to not listen to campaign ads against him when they come on TV. Sounds like he’s nervous they might find out the truth:

  2. Obama is counting on his stupid supporters to OBEY him. Don’t worry ..Obama.. if they are stupid enough to support you, then more than likely they are too stupid to even understand the ads. Truth hurts buddy.

  3. Romney has closed the gap in polls and voters do not even pay that much attention until a few weeks before the election. If the economy is still in the toilet by then, I don’t see how obama wins re-election.

  4. But thats what I do when you are talking Mr President. I pres mute, or turn the channel.

  5. This man is absolutely ruthless. He stands up there and pretends as though he and his side don’t do this. How does one person tell so many lies? And look behind him at the old white ladies just giggling away. One thing comes to my mind….these ladies 50 Shades of Grey fantasies include a black man. Ugh.

  6. Ruh Roh…. somebody is getting desperate. I think that his NPD makes it very difficult for him to accept that he has a serious challenge in this election. After all, never in his life has he had to deal with rejection or failure. He just assumed he would be given a pass as he always has been. America might be in a mess – but we are not that stupid!!!

  7. LOL– A “MUTE” is what Obama is. No worries, I never waste a moment’s time in regards to our fraud and Chief, I have horse stall’s to clean and a business to run.

    I could possibly “muster-up some admiration” if this man-child what step down from being POTUS: However that would take away some of my energy, and O’s simply not worth that either!

  8. Is this guy for real? So, UN-presidential! I think he’s been spending too much time on late night TV. He thinks he’s funny! While we’re all hurting, he’s speaking as if it doesn’t matter. Seriously? A real sign of someone in over their head is when they start making jokes about the truth and taking the focus off themselves. This one is really good at that. So sad that millions were/are infatuated with him. Including the ladies sitting behind him. Funny how the guy over his shoulder wasn’t laughing, he must have been drug there by his wife. So sad!

  9. Yes, just tune people out when you don’t want to hear what they have to say. All liberals do that, not to mention socialists. An idea is their worst enemy because they depend on people blindly following the collective. And THAT is what must be stopped, the idea that the collective always knows what’s best for you. Because, in the end, it usually does not.

  10. What a crock! Too bad, we can’t mute him ALL of the time and ignore his leftist presidential dictates.

  11. Yeah bubba, Obama has a problem with the truth. I guess he doesn’t want people to repeat what he said in Roanoke a week ago. “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own…If you’ve got a business, somebody else made that happen.” Obama wants the American people to hear what he wants them to hear. mm mm mm

  12. That’s right folk hit the Mute button. You don’t need to listen to things like facts or other opinions. Just beleive that everything I tell you is true, and everything anyone else says to contradict that, is lying.
    And of course, laughter and applause from the clapping seals.
    “Yes Obama please tell us what to do, and what to think. Yes Dear Leader”

  13. Rather touchy when the truth comes out isn’t he! Must be that thin reptillian skin of his!

    We are urged to hear ONLY one point of view, his. Why? It is the only way marxists communicate, or will ALLOW!

    You have been warned!

  14. NObama to supporters: Relish in your ignorance! Do not listen to those pesky things called facts and truth!

    Sings: Sheeple… sheeple… who need sheeple… Are the most well controlled sheeple in the world!

  15. Well, I hit FF or switch channels when he comes on, so skipping ads by his camp won’t be a problem. LOL! Oh… wait… He means ads by Romney? You mean he doesn’t like facts coming out? Truth? Honesty? Why doesn’t he just issue another one of his executive orders banning any and all criticism of Dear Leader in the media? That’s about his level, no?

  16. I stopped halfway through which, given my record of walking away when he comes on TV is a long time. Just had breakfast which I enjoyed and did not want to upset my stomach because when I see his arrogance and hear his mocking voice my stomach begins to turn.

    The people’s laughter was also getting to me because when I see his supporters I question why anyone in their right mind would want another four years of the fiasco. I do wonder with what he has put this country through whether his campaign has paid people to sit there. Only thing that makes sense to me.

  17. Please don’t listen. Those evil republicans are going to tell stories about me and you don’t need to here them.

  18. When I listen to this egotistical, narcissistic self-aggrandizing fool ramble on, I picture him remembering how he, himself, sat in his upstairs study each and every night, watching, over and over and over again, all those ads against him, trying to figure out why people treat him in such a way, angry that they don’t understand how great his policies are, how good looking he is and how wonderful he’s been for this country.

    The Obamabots will vote for him no matter what we say. Obama, himself, could come out with an ad that says “Vote for me, because I will screw you over anyway” and they will vote for him.

    However, normal people, those who aren’t politically motivated, might just ask themselves, “Why is he telling me not to listen to something? Perhaps, I should listen to it to find out what he’s trying to hide”.

    I loved the Obamabots behind him. They were looking left and right continuously (perhaps at the applause signs). I pictured a TV show being filmed with a live audience. They have the signs to tell them when to applaud, when to laugh, and when to cheer. It was all very much canned emotions. Do people actually fall for this stuff? I never did with the TV shows and I certainly don’t with this speech.

  19. To me, the scariest voice is our exalted leader when he lays out a new edict that circumvents the constitution in order to implement his Marxist policies…

  20. He wants his masses to go back to sleep, and definitely not hear the truth, that he has been exposed.

    Lord God Almighty Please Give Us The Strength and Courage To Continue To Stand Up To The Devil!

    To Reach Out To Those That Don’t Know What Is Really Going On!

  21. Some facts about Century Village where the LIAR spoke:
    The median sales price for homes in Century Village, West Palm Beach for Apr 12 to Jun 12 was $29,000 based on 53 sales. Compared to the same period one year ago, the median sales price decreased 12.1%, or $4,000, and the number of sales decreased 27.4%. Average price per square foot for Century Village was $38, a decrease of 11.6% compared to the same period last year. There are currently 268 resale and new homes in West Palm Beach on Trulia, including 33 homes in the pre-foreclosure, auction, or bank-owned stages of the foreclosure process. The average listing price for homes for sale in Century Village was $36,915 for the week ending Jul 11, which represents a decrease of 0.5%, or $202, compared to the prior week.
    33 foreclosures and a 12% decline in value on a average value of $37,000.00
    My auto cost more than $37,000.

  22. The guy is losing what little mental capacity he ever had.. (not saying much)

    I honestly have no respect for anyone that votes for this POS. How can any semi intelligent human being observe this guy for any reasonable length of time then make a conscious decision to VOTE for him?
    I find it hard to believe that he actually graduated from Harvard Law School… I would have to see verifiable proof of this claim. Either someone else was doing the majority of his work for him or they gave him a huge pass.. for whatever reason…

    This guy is as fake as a 3 dollar bill…

  23. For once in his life he’s on his own and all he can do is complain about Romney’s adds…What a poor looser he really is……

  24. Thank God for the remote, whenever I see or hear Obama on the tube, in any capacity, I’m gone…

  25. The man in glasses over BO’s right shoulder must have been dragged there by his wife because he doesn’t look like he is buying his BS.

  26. Obama: “Take from me, I’m great and my opponent is a felon.”
    Supporters: “I hear and I obey.”

  27. Think about the low regard he has for America to be able to stand up there and actually say this.

  28. He’s telling Americans to censor themselves. Tells you something about the intelligence of his supporters and the laughing, hand picked idiots behind him don’t even realize that he is telling them to keep themselves uninformed. If he had nothing to hide and had a good record to run on he wouldn’t be afraid of the truth.

    1. He’s all for censoring anybody who doesn’t carry the water for him. Didn’t he tell folks not to listen to Fox? Rush? Hannity?

      I’m sure he would love to set up a government-controlled media. Oh wait, we’ve already got the LSM!

    2. He had two solid years of veto-proof majorities when he could have gotten anything he wanted.He wasted the entire time shoving Obamacare down the nation’s throat and had to do a lot of arm-twisting and more than a little bribery to get ir passed by one vote in the dead of night on Christmas Eve.This gave rise to the Tea Party movement and the republican tsunami in 2010.I guarantee we will reprise that storm in November.For allegedly being the smartest man in any room he walks into,he’s pretty damn dumb.

  29. Truth to this weasel is like a crucifix to Dracula. I can imagine all of his zombie vampires pulling their collar up over their face and hissing every time a Romney ad comes on. I think I’ll go watch TV with my liberal brother for entertainment.

    1. This is why he needs to be overwhelmed by truth. The truth needs to be dumped on him daily with ever-increasing frequency, until he melts.

      1. We can be very thankful for our blogs. More and more people are getting the truth through very hard-working bloggers; this site being one of them. We need them now more than ever. I truly believe that they’re making a difference. The first time “Tea Party” was ever mentioned was by a woman blogger in the state of Washington (Santelli made it famous though). A Tea Partier was intereviewed at a rally a while back, and she said that they used the Internet to form the Tea Party.

        1. That’s why I’m in here. I appreciate like-minded folks and I want to make what meager efforts I can with what I have…a vote, an opinion, and a keyboard connected to the world. I will speak…loudly and often.

    1. Propaganda is a time tested and effective tool. All of our major media outlets practice it wholly, Fox included. They have brought it to an refined art with computer graphics and social media but it really has not changed from the masters of it – the National Socialists.
      Name Calling
      Glittering Generalities
      Plain Folks
      Card Stacking
      Band Wagon

      There was a time we taught our children how to recognize it. Now our schools condition them for it.

  30. I won’t “mute” I delite in seeing him squirm like the wounded rat bas*@#d he is.

  31. To Obama supporters I say:

    Proverbs 1:32

    For the waywardness of the simple will kill them,
    and the complacency of fools will destroy them;


    To Obama I proclaim:

    Proverbs 10:18

    Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips
    and spreads slander is a fool.

  32. I wonder if all of those senior citizens in the background will still be laughing when the reality of ObamaCare hits them and they no longer have access to affordable health care, or when one of their loved ones is denied treatment by a government panel of ‘experts’, or when their taxes sky-rocket; or when we face a true missile threat in this country, or when the drug cartels and thugs take over their community, or when… ???

    1. Remember the time that the LIAR said SS checks would not go out unless he got another $2,600,000,000,000.00 to spend before the election. Also you STUPID seniors, the LIAR wants to role back the inheritance tax exemptions. So you stupid old fossils the LIAR has you in his crosshairs.

  33. Obama’s only hope is distorting reality to the point where truth does not exist. He is taking brainwashing to a level never before seen in this country. Owning the most corrupt media in our history will allow him to exploit the ignorance of the American public to the degree he is the only hope to survive the attack on this country from within. The attack that he is instigating, with those of his ilk, who must destroy American exceptionalism in order to make the people subservient to their endocrination. The founding fathers knew the hearts of men. The Constitution granted us a free Republic, if we can keep it. Can we? That is yet is to be determined.

    1. Well said Don.
      I’m sure he’s planning some big attack to totally disrupt the country right before the election. I wouldn’t put anything past him and his corrupt administrative thugs.

      1. I have to wonder what the Secret Service would do if he tried to hold on to power using extra-constitutional methods.

        1. I’m sure BO could secure Secret Service support with a few enticing perks (booze, women). Of course, I would probably have to drink heavily too if I had to spend any time around that piece of crap.

          But seriously, I wonder WHO we can count on to protect us from this evil man if he attempts to use extra-constitutional methods. I think in the end, it will be up to us to protect ourselves. God help us!

          1. Do you suppose the soon to be hired 16,000 new “IRS agents” figure into this in any way?

            1. Could be…
              Remember his desire for the ‘brown shirts’ to assist in enforcing law?
              He said that we cannot rely only on our military, and he’s done everything possible to weaken our military!

              Watch this from 2008…

              Perhaps he will begin building his ‘civilian’ force under the guise of IRS agents!

          2. You are right. It should be painfully clear by now that all of our institutions and balances of power have failed us. Of course the military cannot act and we would not want them too. This is a nation of law. It has now come down to what the founders intended. The people and our sovereign states.

            We can count only on ourselves – all it takes is that self revelation that we brought this upon ourselves and no one is coming to save us. Not Romney. No one. The damage and danger is institutionalized. We have to rout it out.

            The problem is not Hussein. The problem is how he got there. It will be a long battle back and we cannot let one election put us back to sleep.

            1. “The problem is not Hussein. The problem is how he got there.”~~sDee

              You are so right. Obama is a result of the problem, but not the source of the problem. When the mainstream media became so corrupt that they present one view with total bias and attack the opposing view with lies and disdain, they become propaganda tools for endocrination of the masses. Without the manipulation of the masses by the mainstream media, liberlaism could not flourish as they are a minoriity with no record of accomplishment, only failure. They must destroy that which is established in order to transform what they perceive achieves the most control. This is done, in order, to direct what they feel is best for the majority, whether they like it or not. Liberals rule and freedoms be damned. Without the mainstream media distorting the truth, liberals would be inconsequential.

  34. That’s what we all do when we see an Obama ad. Again, we don’t have to be told what to do. Figured it out on our own.

    Honestly, I don’t know why he is wasting money on ads in Texas but hey, bring it!

  35. I agree with Pistol Pete, I don’t listen to anything he has to say…and it’s been that way for several years now. I tried to give him an opportunity to prove my initial impression of him wrong, and he didn’t/couldn’t do it. He’s every bit as bad as I thought he would be, as is his entire administration. He sold a lot of Americans a bill of goods. Some that voted for him won’t make the same mistake in November, but many who want to see this country torn down and re-made as a socialist fashion will vote for him again. That’s sad, but it is what it is.

  36. My Tv Remote must have been programmed by a Conservative, the mute and change channel bottons automatically work when Obama or a democrat is on the boob tube or on radio.
    Must be the new Pinocchio (APP) I installed.

    1. i’m suffering from BOT (bilateral Obama thumb-itis). as you know, most TV remotes have the mute button placed within thumb’s reach. haven’t heard a word he’s said for years. but my thumbs sure hurt!!!

      1. BOT sounds like carbra tunnel syndrome.
        After Obama was elected the ten cents piccolo player retired, he wasn’t able to keep up with obamas broken record that keeps repeating itself, it’s Bush’s fault, it’s Bush’s fault, it’s Bush’s fault. Obama must not have heard of the knock it off switch.

  37. “The other side is gonna spend more money than weve ever seen…”

    WTF? How much money has he spent in the last 4 years?

    Actually no one has seen how much money youve spent cause basically it doesnt exist yet and youve spent it already!!!

    1. Obama has probably spent more of OUR taxpayer dollars on vacations and golfing than the RNC has spent on ads.

    2. OPM doesn’t count!!! It’s only bad if you worked hard and earned it and spent on consumer goods that can drive the country into prosperity.

  38. How the rock star has fallen, gee.. about seven old fossils from the Senior Center must have needed a block of cheese, so they pose with the LIAR. Anyone notice that at the 18 second point in this clip he gives the USA citizens the finger again?
    Go get them you Narcissist.

    1. I did indeed. Nothing but a skinny arrogant street punk who would not last 5 minutes in the real world.

      What America, have we done?

  39. What a (bleep) crybaby! Take your butt-whoopin like a man you sickening little man-child. You are the king of liars! How Presidential of this poser to talk like this. Amateur.

    I expect him to say this sort of crap. He’s an imbecile and incapable of being honest. He’s a complete, arrogant idiot! But the blind, deaf, and dumb lemmings who laugh at this, follow him, and vote for this imposter, they are the real problem. Many of them became that way because a) the MSM is complicit and lying too and b) those people are too lazy or ignorant to scratch below the surface and really educate themselves on what is right and true. So follow this dancing clown and laugh at his lameness and go on marching off to slavery. But just don’t take this great country down with you! Idiots.

      1. Lol! I’ve hit critical mass this week. I’m sick of all the lying and garbage so I’ve been a little emotional. Sorry m8. 🙂

  40. I do that every time I see this poser.His purple lips,elephantine ears and annoying cadence in his voice make me want to kick my dog through a hedge.

    1. Please keep your sweet innocent dog out of this.
      I sure hope you are kidding. About your dog I mean.

      I have been tired of our President on TV since the
      week after the Innaugeration.
