A kiss is just a kiss

Do you ever wish you had a chance to do something over? Well last night at the USA men's basketball ball game against Brazil President Obama got that chance.

During the first half of the game the Obamas were featured in the arena's "Kiss Cam" but they didn't kiss. The crowd, unhappy that they had been cheated out of a first couple smooch, booed their dissatisfaction.

The president had the chance to make it right when near the end of the game the "Kiss Cam" came back to the couple. This time, with daughter Malia egging them on, the president and first lady gave the crowd what they wanted, a big ole kiss.

        Howard, just admit you love listening to Glen in Beckistan, that crazy weirdo Michele Bachman (whose husband hasn't come-out yet) Frank Gaffney the looney toon radio-conspiracy-guy and Rush (the drug abuser who failed everything in college according to his mother) Limbaugh.

      If God forbid, Obama wins a second term ... and our rights, and economy become decimated ... the only silver lining will be the thought of you Obama stooges ... and your children ... and your children's children, having to live in the third world country, which you are helping to create. If Obama gets reelected ... America is doomed. What a shame.

        Actually the American middle class is doomed if Obama isn't elected. That is the real fact!

        Sorry Jean,

        But that is not fact just opinion! There is a diference you know!

        Steveo, you already know that Jean's "news sources" are located in the back pages of the paper, or from political hack bloggers. Many of her "sources" she so loves to cite actually have "opinion" or some similar moniker in their http line. And another many actually contridict what she is trying to argue, if you read the links. I've stopped looking at most of her "sources" after finding this ocurring with regularity, though some do have an address that looks interesting to read.

        Agreed C-Lo. I really enjoy the banter though!

      It was a pre-arranged political stunt by the Obamamaniacs contolling the Kiss Kam.., Obams just wasn't swift enough to pick up on it the first time. No teleprompter..

        Maybe so but not worth a debate over it, too much else to discuss!

        Not worh debate.., here!!? You must have your shortcuts mixed again...

        I stand corrected Demmit

        This story is not worth my debate!

        Obvioulsy Rethugliklans are cluesles as to what a teleprompter looks like. Here is a link to several members of the GOP using a teleprompter....including Romney.

        Note the rectangles above the lectur0m. I guess the reason the GOP has so much trouble with teleprompters is they have a built in lie detector which gives them fits.

    The bewildering part is not why the President didn't kiss the First Lady the first time or not...it's why is it newsworthy?

    howard and gang can only comment on stories like this. When it comes to bain capital or milktoast tax returns they are silent. Wonder why? I guess on the things important in a president even they find mittens lacking. This over seas banking and funding from a guy being investigated by the justice department apparently are not to important to the dumb follow the leader repo crowd. Obama Biden 2012 Forward.

      well lets just look into the obama fraudulent birth cert and other documents....lets get those academic and medical records out there in the public domaine.....lets investigate Mz obamas employment record and the financing of their mortgage and other shady financial dealings. Lets not worry too much about Mr Romneys hard earned investments that are lawfully invested domestically and off shore... Romney is a self made wealthy man, obama is a two bit community organizer...propelled into power using tax payer funds and his mixed race...that is, pulled the race card from cradle to the white house....nothing to be too proud of.

    Mitchell's body language says it all. DON"T TOUCH ME!

    July 18, 2012 at 1:29 pm |
    • jean2009

      Obviously you don't read body language...she is teasingly saying "you want a kiss you've gotta come and get it."

      July 19, 2012 at 11:30 am |
      • Steveo

        Lo and behold, I agree with you. I saw where a body language expert declared the First couple shared "REAL Iintimacy" These are her words. Only problem (for you) is she often appears on O'Reilly's show as a contributor, so I 'm not sure if you would believe her expertise or not!

    Here's a question...why are fluff pieces like this on here, when, as Commander In Chief and leader of the free world, we hear NOTHING about what he's doing with GITMO, IRAN, ISRAEL, AFGHANASTAN, EGYPT, SOMALIA, SYRIA, IRAQ...

    He turned his ENTIRE FOREIGN POLICY and administration to Clinton. We see that he can run around the country campaigning and watching basketball games getting his mug up on the jumbotron, but does not address ANYTHING that the leader of the free world should be concerned with. "Second term Obama more likely to jump into peace process, Jordan's king says" Why does it take the Jordanian leader to tell us that we will see Obama jump into the peace process if he is so fortunate as to stumble into a second term? Why is that foundation not being laid now?

    July 18, 2012 at 5:45 pm |
    • jean2009

      I agree that it is a fluff piece...but disagree that the President has turned his foreign policy over to Secretary Clinton....just because he is not persinally consulting with you and keeping you in the loop doesn't mean he is not talking with the people who actually can help bring about change.

        Don't know about that Jean. I can bring about change pretty easily. Give the gov't a dollar and all i'll get back is some change.
