Obama Pays Tribute to Joplin; Fox Concerned if He’s Chewing Gum

May 29, 2011

President Obama visited the tornado ravaged city of Joplin, Missouri to give comfort to the victims of the devastation that obliterated their life’s possessions.


Tribute was paid to the hundreds who died.

Obama, just as previously when tornadoes hit Alabama, and floods swept along the Mississippi River, tried to reassure the survivors that they would not be forgotten.


“This is not just your tragedy. This is a national tragedy,” Obama said.

Meanwhile, Fox Nation is concerned whether Obama is chewing gum. No, really:



Earlier today President Obama spoke at a memorial service in Joplin, MO honoring those who lost their lives to the destructive tornado that stuck the region last week. Seen at the last seconds of this video clip it appears as though President Obama was chewing gum. What do you think?



Since they asked, I think he did far better job than Sarah Palin, utilizing her hand made teleprompter, while campaigning.  Last month Ms. Palin said in regards to the President,When do you ever just ‘roll up your sleeves, unplug the teleprompter.’”


The President with his “sleeves rolled up” today:










Certainly Fox Nation won’t report on her juvenile cheat sheet even though they’re already in campaign mode on her behalf.













A comment on Fox Nation at the bottom from texpeare:

Vote Palin. ;)

Hell no.

    We’ve been through this with Bush Sr. when he vomited on the Japanese Prime Ministers lap and Bush Jr with his cowboy antics and “Bushisms.”

    It doesn’t matter which guy you are backing, what is trite and unimportant should remain trite and unimportant. If Obama is completely tactless, it has no bearing on what happened in Joplin, and his actions there.

    Lets move beyond third grade antics in our news media, and get down to some real reporting please? There are things going on foreign and domestically that should be covered 24/7. There should be people rolling down the streets of every major city in protest of just a few of the situations that our world finds ourselves in. Instead we focus on the mundane, like what Sarah Palin has written on her hand or who’s wiener was Weiner showing? When will people wake up — you are being desensitized, and taking the bait.

    Even that is too much, it’s obvious that they are trying to make the President look bad, and most people, especially those reading Fox Nation, only need one word to bitch about .

    Also why is the President chewing gum during a speech newsworthy? Does it show that he is a bad leader because he’s able to speak eloquently and chew gum at the same time?

    Fox is just continuing the status quo of doing anything they can to destroying this man, what’s even more mind blowing is that they say their doing it under the guise of patriotism, what a joke.

    BTW You know Fox news is running out of dirt on the President if all they have to focus on is gum. Get over, he’s not the best leader ever, but he’s about 9x more of a American than these Fox propaganda artists.

    Fox was going to invent something to complain about, it was just a matter of finding out what. There is no disaster or loss of life large enough to keep them from pursuing their political agenda and the money it brings them.

    The note on Palin’s hand were just reminding her of her name and to breathe.

      @larfus, In fairness, she needs ‘special’ help.

    Nothing from Fox surprises me anymore. It’s a total freak show.

    What is wrong with Obama? Chewing gum at a memorial service? He has no understanding of the world around him. He is child-like. He is a disgrace.

      @Jim, When did gum become disgraceful? I must have missed the memo or, your party is desperate to find something to demonize him with. (like using Dijon mustard).

        @Anomaly100, You are a no class, uncultured clod. Just like Obama.

          @Jim, Said like a true gentleman.
