I absolutely do not give a rat’s petuti about ‘Jersey Shore’ or Snooki! In fact, I have never watched that show until I looked up a re-run yesterday just to see who Snooki was and who Obama was again lying… un contradicting himself about? Soon after, Snooki was arrested.
Why does this matter? And why should anyone care? We should care about the fact that President Obama would lie about something so stupid and trivial because it proves if he would lie on national TV about this… he would, will and does lie about pretty much everything! And that should worry and disturb everyone!
Barack Obama has been caught in a contradiction. I guess that is what we are calling untruths or lies these days?!? Asked about Jersey Shore star Snooki on The View today, the President replied, "I don't know who that is." But two months ago he knew who she was! Nitpicky video analysis ahead.
Asked for his opinion on Snooki (who voted for John McCain) the president claimed ignorance. But two months ago he dropped Snooki's name in a White House Press Correspondents Dinner punchline about a health care provision named in honor of the hit MTV show. "It [the provision] reads, 'The following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and House minority leader John Boehner.'" So which is it, Obama? Do you know Snooki, or don't you? Clearly, this is the Watergate of our time, and America demands an answer.
We believe there are three… (maybe four) possible explanations for Snooki-gate:
- 1. He forgot Snooki. (Which is odd, because she's the kind of person who tends to get seared into your mind forever.)
- 2. He is as ashamed of partaking in television's guiltiest pleasure as you are. His ignorance on The View was feigned.
- 3. Obama's famously hip speechwriters got ahead of him and dropped a cultural reference he didn't understand for the sake of Beltway chuckles. He recited the joke without getting it, and promptly forgot its context as soon as it was over.
- He is a pathological liar and can’t stop himself
And While We Talking Jersey…
Please say it isn’t so… he is now bowing to Governor Christie
Finally, at least bowing to a leader worthy of an Obamabow: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie… but really??
This picture just made my day. I know Governor Chris Christie is awesome, but I think President Obama is taking it a bit too far.
Michelle Obama Breaks Tradition… or Didn’t Understand It

Costa del First Lady: Michelle Obama treats daughter Sasha to stay at five-star Marbella resort
The British have been captivated by the Costa del Sol for decades and now it seems the appeal has crossed the Atlantic.
First Lady Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha are due to travel to the resort of Marbella in southern Spain next week for a private trip with long-time family friends, the White House announced today.
But Barack Obama, who turns 49 on 4 August, will celebrate his birthday home alone while elder daughter Malia, 12, attends summer camp back in the States.
Private trip: The Obamas tour Cape Coast in Ghana last year. First Lady Michelle and younger daughter Sasha will travel to Spain next week, while the president - who turns 49 while they're away - and elder daughter Malia stay in the U.S.
Despite the unusual choice of holiday destination, Mrs Obama, who will be on the Costa del Sol between 4 and 8 August with nine-year-old Sasha, has reserved 30 rooms at a five-star hotel.
- Marbella: Spanish resort where Cheryl Cole and Kate Moss like to party
- Holiday habits of MPs revealed as Parliament closes for summer
- £1million security bill for Queen's cruise around the Scottish Highlands
It is thought Mrs Obama has booked the rooms at the prestigious Villa Padierna, a golf and spa resort located along the coast from Marbella.
With a reputation as Spain's most exclusive hotel, room prices start at 250 euros (£210) for a standard double and rise up to 5,000 euros (£4,175) for a private villa within the gardens.
Night life in Marbella: The tourist spot has gained a reputation for being something of a party town
Mrs Obama and Sasha will be accompanied by an entourage of secret service personnel who will follow their every move.
The cost of housing the First Lady and her entourage could raise questions back in the U.S. over the use of taxpayers's money.
Mrs Obama will pay an official visit to Spain's King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia. Spanish newspapers today reported that the royal family had invited her to join them at their summer palace on Majorca in the Mediterranean.

However Mrs. Obama will miss her husband's 49th birthday on August 4.
While there had been speculation in the Spanish media that the president will fly over to celebrate his special day, this was today denied by the White House.
A spokesman said: 'The First Lady will travel to Spain next week for a private, mother-daughter trip with long-time family friends. President Obama will not be joining this trip.'
Following their Spanish jaunt, Mrs. Obama and Sasha will tour the oil slick-devastated Gulf Coast of Florida before spending ten days on the New England resort island of Martha's Vineyards, a long-term favorite of celebrities and politicians.
