There are so many RW lies, a dfake e-mails, about this president, it is hard to keep up with all of them. Here is another myth exposed as a lie.

January 26, 2010

Here at FactCheck.org, we’ve seen our share of fake photos of President Obama. So we were suspicious when a reader e-mailed us a silly-looking photo of the president speaking in a grade-school classroom with teleprompter, podium and presidential seal. The photo is so silly, in fact, that it was the butt of a late-night comedian’s ridicule. But this picture is real.

The White House video of this event prompted Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart to ask incredulously, "You set up a teleprompter in a 6th grade classroom?" Well, yes, he did, bringing to mind such famous photo-op flops as Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis’ tank ride in 1988 and Republican President George W. Bush’s "Mission Accomplished" banner.

But Obama wasn’t actually giving a speech to 6th graders at the time, as incorrectly stated in the headline on the photo that was e-mailed to us, and in many conservative blogs. The picture (taken by Associated Press photographer Alex Brandon) actually shows Obama speaking to reporters in a classroom at the Graham Road Elementary School in Falls Church, Va., on Jan. 19. Obama had spoken to the students themselves earlier, and he did not use a teleprompter then. This photo from the official White House blog shows that clearly.

Yes he did, he didn't use it when speaking to sixth graders.

Hence, we can agree that the POTUS is smarter than a sixth grader.

BRAVO!

Small minded putzes tend to overlook the broad reality, and focus on their emotionally unbalanced nit picking.

These nuts on here couldn't be more transparent.

For eight years they overlooked everything done by the worst president in history, but they can focus on one word, rather than being able to grasp the overall fabulous job this president has done, with the multi disasters left to him by the chimp, ah, the chump, ah, Little Bushy, and his blank check majority.

Now, the vacant vessel, Palin, has caught their fancy. LMAO! SOOOOOOOO typical of the nutty right. They go from one vacant vessel, to another, never stopping to realize that their last hero, George Bush, was just a pawn for the hidden fascists to exploit.

And, their all time favorite blank vessel??? Ronald Reagan! BWA HA HA HA...the blankest vessel of all. Think about it, they revered a man who was in the throes of alzsheimers!!!

Nancy ran the country! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif
