Things you say when you don't have a teleprompter

From the mouth of Barry Obama.

I can make a firm pledge, under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes. So, as the question was posed to me last night, is a new tax a tax increase?

I don't take a dime of their [lobbyist] money, and when I am president, they won't find a job in my White House. Funny how he currently has five lobbyists on his staff.

I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.
When? When? Not only will this not happen, he has not mentioned one time since he's taken office that there will be any kind of tax cut.

It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations. When Barry gets bitter he shows his hatred and racism and tells people to squeal on their neighbors.

One of the great strengths of the United States is... we have a very large Christian population - we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values. Spoken like a true Muslim.

Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. If GW, or any republican for that matter, had made a statement like this, it would still be on the front of the NY Times.

The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country - I know, because I am one of them. Name one. Just one Muslim who has enriched America. Actors don't count and neither do musicians. I want a famous scientist, an author, a Nobel prize winner. Just one.

We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen. No, that is leadership. It shows how successful you can be if you follow our model.

We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don't want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential. Isn't the enitre liberal mantra based on getting something for nothing? Let's be honest, hard working and liberal don't usually go hand in hand. Honestly, how did anyone vote for this fucking clown?

You will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime. I will take any and all bets on this. BTW, new taxes are a tax increase.

When we think of the major threats to our national security, the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation, rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores, one from nature, not humans - an avian flu pandemic. Are you shitting me? Bird flu is being compared to a terrorist getting his hands on a nuclear device?

In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world. If Europe is so fucking great, why don't all the liberals move there? They would be happy and so would we.

We’ve got a tragic history when it comes to race in this country. We’ve got a lot of pent-up anger and bitterness and misunderstanding. … This country wants to move beyond these kinds of things. This should be followed by the quote where he said the police acted "stupidly".

What Washington needs is adult supervision. At last. Something we can agree on. Now, if only there were an adult in the Whitehouse.
