Obama's Version of a Moral Example


RUSH: Let's go to the audio sound bite roster, though.  Obama has had four fundraisers in New York last night.  I think Obama has had double the fundraisers at this stage than George W. Bush had.  He was at a restaurant run by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and Obama spoke. 

OBAMA:  Around the world, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, what they did was hard.  It takes time.  It takes more than a single term.  It takes more than a single president.  It takes more than a single individual.  What it takes is ordinary citizens who keep believing, who are committed to fighting and pushing and inching this country closer and closer to our highest ideals.  And I said in 2008: I am not a perfect man, and I will not be a perfect president.

AUDIENCE: (laughter)

OBAMA: But I promised you! I promised you back then that I would always tell ya what I believed. I would always tell ya where I stood.

RUSH:  Wait a minute, I'm confused.  Not a perfect man? I thought he was gonna lower the sea levels and unite the country and create love for the country amongst all of our enemas -- uh, enemies! Hmm.  And let's see.  Also at the ABC kitchen, this is a restaurant by Jean-Georges Vongerichten. This is Obama scolding a protester.

OBAMA:  We are leading again by the power of our moral example.  That's what change is!

PROTESTER: (screaming) No war with Iran!

OBAMA: None of this --

PROTESTER: (screaming)

OBAMA: -- change...

PROTESTER: (screaming) No war with Iran!

OBAMA: Uh, er, uh, uh, uh... Nobody's, uhhh, announced a war, young lady. So...

AUDIENCE: (laughter)

OBAMA: But we appreciate your sentiment. 

AUDIENCE: (laughter)

OBAMA: You're jumpin' the gun a little bit here.

RUSH:  And the protester was shouting, "No war in Iran! No war in Iran!"  Folks, I have to laugh when I hear the president talk about his "moral example."  The president's moral example.  The president's moral example is making you and me provide contraception for women who want unlimited, anytime, no-consequences sex.  Some morality.
