Pigs, Lipstick and Lies

Maybe Barack Obama should read his party's website or some of his clueless staff should. In light of his half hearted denial that he called Gov. Sarah Palin, Republican candidate for Vice-President of the United States a pig, it is very odd that his party's website is displaying this content.

And if he didn't realize the implications of his remarks, I shudder to think what a shambles he would make of Foreign Relations with his lack of diplomacy and judgement.

This is getting old, every one appears to have a copy of the Obama play book- here is a comment on this subject from the digital journal. BELOW

I see your point, but see that is the beauty of Obama's tactics, as he used with Hillary, say and do anything you want and when you are called on it, insist on talking about the issues.

Well, maybe Obama's audience is smarter than he is. They "got" the joke immediately.

I thought he was just dumb or had poor judgment. May I add that I now think he's just a liar.

After looking at this, can anyone honestly say he didn't know how the "lipstick on a pig" comment would be perceived?

He should have just apologized and then it would have past. By getting self righteous he gets to own the whole event.

Lipstick sticks for one more news cycle! Obama caught up in his school yard insult is outraged that this campaign isn’t more about issues?

“I thought it was unbelievably inappropriate,” said Jean Hope “There’s no cause for behavior like that . . . He just insulted all of us who wear lipstick,” she added.
