For what it is worth during the interview on The View, I also had no idea who Snookie was either until my 12 year old granddaughter wanted to watch a show last night on t.v. while she was here. Its popularity really amazed me that is for sure. Anyway, I had to do some digging to find out what this show was all about and why all the hub-bub, which of course was what they wanted. Today even this ridiculous instance seemed to be big news for some reason, that the President was asked some pop culture questions for fun, and admitted he didn't know who this Snookie was. Big deal! So what did the media do with this? They find an old, old speech Obama gave referring to this Snookie and The Jersey Shore group to get a laugh. The speech was obviously written by someone else as he stumbled reading the joke into that speech. So, with two wars, an oil spill, an economic crisis, health and education reform, and all the other misc. "sledge" he cleans up, I guess he is supposed to remember one joke in one speech written by a someone else a long time ago? Boy, people are sure digging deep to play dirty these days. John McCain even answered her "tweet" the he wouldn't tax tanning salons. A really mature move on his part (or his staff.)
Faithful With A Few
i could supply all the links of sites, showing his original speech, and those relating to this stupid thing, but what's the point?
I am just sure glad Obama has the integrity that he does and chooses to take the higher road by dismissing all this back-stabbing balderdash. I would too.
I don't mind being his "attack dog" one bit, and do just that on the blogs and sites that warp the truth by creating, and perpetrating this trash. I don't do it because of one party or the other, but because he is your President at least for now, and he needs everyone's support. Besides which, I love to squash lies, if they are in fact, lies.
Well,everything comes to an end for a reason, and my activity here in this Alley has come to an end. I have to choose a higher road, and will wait to see what happens. Good luck to you all, really, and I mean that.
