Good Grief… Obama Electioneers During Hurricane Press Conference – Tells Team to “Lean Forward” in Their Response (Video)

Really Barack?… Really?
Barack Obama told his hurricane support team to “lean forward” in their response to the hurricane cleanup.
That also happens to be his campaign slogan.

The Washington Times reported:

President Obama may have suspended his campaign rallies due to Hurricane Sandy, but he managed to squeeze in his campaign slogan — intentionally or not — during a briefing Tuesday with federal emergency officials.

“The president made clear that he expects his team to remain focused as the immediate impacts of Hurricane Sandy continue and lean forward in their response,” the White House said in a statement about Mr. Obama’s video-teleconference that he conducted from the White House Situation Room. “Forward” is the slogan of his re-election campaign.

    Lean forward? No bend over!

    I thought his governing slogan was “Stand Down.” Just ask Commander Ham…

    It seems nobody has seen General Ham (he’s Army) or the Navy Admiral who has been “recalled.”

    A more notable quote from the same speech: “Nobody gets left behind.” I almost spit out my coffee.

    Was he promoting his campaign or promoting MSNBC?

    God has intervened. For some reason he is rewarding Obama. Maybe we are wrong on our positions on Gay Marriage, Abortion and religious freedom after all. He is in control and He is sending us a message that He wants Obama to stay as our leader. We have to accept that this is his will. Someday we might understand why. It is hard to understand right now.

    Forward or forward depending on how they choose to spell. Come the clown has absolutely no shame. He allowed 4 heroes to die. Can anyone get any lower?

    This jackass needs to just get out of the way and let the people who actually know what they are doing, do their jobs. Stupid jerk. Hey numbnut, the power will be restored when it is restored. Instead of yammering, why don’t you climb up a pole and show everyone how it’s done since you’re so smart and all.

    Mercy. The sooner he’s out of here the better.

    “Lean forward” is a marketing expression which essentially means “exaggerate (lie about) your product to your potential customers.” Tell them what they want to hear. Promise them anything.

    Our biggest competitor has a reputation for “leaning forward.” They usually win the client the first time around but the client always ends up coming to us in the end.

    Boy, that sounds familiar!

    Every blog I go to says Romney might be losing as Obama can look good in helping with this hurricane (where was he for the other hurricanes?) (where was he for the men begging for help in Benghazi?). Please say you folks here still think we have a chance to win this election?!

  • Tom63010

    Who in the world uses the term “lean forward” in their vernacular?

  • Sasja

    I doubt his grandstanding is going to give him much of a boost. People are still out of work and/or struggling to pay their bills, mortgages and rent. Barry is toast and we can kick his skinny butt out of DC. I have no doubt.

    Thanks, Sasja!

    anyone who tells you what effect the storm has on the election is blowing smoke. Absolutely no way to gauge that. A couple of things to consider:
    – people EXPECT the president to show leadership in these cases — so no added points for doing his job.
    – most of the storm damage is in blue states — may cause fewer Obamabots to turn out
    – GOP has been tweeting for 2 days about R/R gains in swing states
    – Oblahblah has had a fair amount of positive airtime on this — but just wait until people go without electricity for a week. Who do you think they’ll blame?

    A subprime blowhard pretending to be a president.

    I’m still trying to figure out if Jim #7 is being serious or sarcastic. Hopefully you don’t really believe that crap.

  • Winston Wolfe

    Shameless. Absolutely shameless.
