Screeching Obama banshee: Obama gave me ‘free phone,’ ‘Romney sucks!’

Yesterday, outside of a Romney campaign event near Cleveland, Ohio, a man caught up with an anti-Romney protester. That in itself is probably not all that remarkable, as protests are fairly common. But this particular protester was special. When asked why she was voting for Barack Obama, she offered up a response that must be seen to be believed, and one that probably has the interviewer’s ears still ringing:

Did you get all that? Obama must be “in president” because he bestows free phones on food stamp recipients, and “Romney sucks” because he doesn’t. That shifty Romney, with all his crazy ideas about people having to earn money to buy their own phones … We’re gonna go out on a limb and suggest that this woman’s priorities are seriously out-of-whack.

But as Jammie Wearing Fool points out, her entitlement mentality lines up perfectly with the one the Obama Administration has worked so hard to cultivate. Babying people who feel they deserve everything merely because they exist is a sure-fire way for Obama and the Democrats to keep half the country under their grubby thumbs.

Conservatives are sick and tired of their hard-earned money being used by our government to feed the entitlement beast, and the Cleveland Obamabot left them absolutely flabbergasted:

A number of Twitterers saw the video as validation of Romney’s earlier “47 percent” remarks:

Watching the Left’s intellectual gymnastics as they try to spin this will certainly be interesting — assuming they have the guts to touch it at all:

Liberals may be too cowardly to address it, but Romney should most definitely not be. As disgusting as the video is, it harbors a silver lining that Romney would be foolish not to milk for all it’s worth:

America is calling, Mitt. Will you pick up?



Conservatives are suggesting features for the #Obamaphone.


  • Josephine (D)

    Ugh. I live a few hours from Cleveland, so there’s probably someone like her in my area. This woman is a lazy, brainwashed idiot. She also probably voted for Obama in ’08 because he’s black. Romney can and should take advantage of this video.

  • Burt Zerker

    Ignorance and want is a hell of a combo. God help us all.

    • spot_the_dog

      “Ignorance and want is a hell of a combo.”

      Ignorance and ENTITLEMENT is a hell of a combo. I imagine there’re a lot of things people like us “want” … that doesn’t translate into us demanding that the State force complete strangers buy us these “wants” out of their own hard-earned paycheques.

  • J. Cox

    “Just saw the “Obama gave us a phone” video. My already dwindling faith in humanity took a punch to the jejunum.”
    “Note to Obama supporters: A thank you would be nice for your Obama phone & Obama money that WE THE TAXPAYER pay for (read not the 47%).”

    Enough said.Thanks socialist for educating people with this type of mentality.You are the 1st and foremost threat to freedom we have ever faced.You dressed it up and we are left looking like this.No wonder people laugh at us.

  • rinodino

    Lol, I wish Mittens would use this as an Ad, then Obama can hit them with a commercial of many hard working Americans, like myself, that don’t consider ourselves victims….. and that’s again why your righties always get it wrong, YOU PUT EVERYBODY THAT IS VOTING FOR OBAMA AS FOOD STAMP VICTIMS, LOL. you are disrespecting those that are votiing for Obama who just like him better than Mittens… we don’t consider ourselves ghetto hoodrats, but go ahead and put that on us if you like, we welcome your ignorance… which makes us more likely to rush out and vote for Obama…. The welfare queen gimic won’t work in 2012….

    • Kevin Krom

      Keep trying to convince yourself that you’re winning. It’s hilarious.

      Romney is winning Independents, and Obama is behind in every key demographic from where he was in 2008. “Hope and Change” doesn’t sell when the track record is more debt, lower household income, higher unemployment, and a foreign policy of apologizing to the people who murder our ambassadors.

      Oh, and I don’t even plan on voting for Romney… living in Maryland, I have that luxury because if my Presidental vote mattered for MD’s electoral votes, Romney would be over 400 EV anyway.

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        Oh, go and vote anyway, and take everyone you know with you. You never know. With THIS president, there might be millions more who are sick and tired of his ineptness and lies. They’re not even polling in states which “they’ve” decided are locked down for Obama. I have a feeling, “they” are going to be quite surprised on November 6th.

        I am in a similar state, but the pulse on the ground does not read Obama, I don’t care WHAT “they” say. :-)

        • Donna Acosta

          I’m loving that, as I drive around the same city that was plastered with Obama bumper stickers 4 years ago, it’s surprising to see one this year. I agree…the pulse on the ground is saying something different than the lamestream media. But when was the last time the media had a grip on reality?

          • Trikke

            I am in Florida and surprised that this close to the elections I am seeing hardly any signs and no bumper stickers. Of the very few signs I am seeing, the Romney signs out number the obama signs about 6 to 1. I am not seeing any bumper stickers. My theory about that is that people do not want to get their cars keyed. That is how hateful people have become because of how utterly fed up and frustrated they are.

      • Trikke

        You need to vote anyway. obama will do anything, no matter how illegal, to pump up his votes. Please vote! Now is not the time to assume.

    • Kent Vig

      Speak brother!!!!!!!! Unemployment above 8%. 2 straight quarters of GDP below 2%. Real unemployment above 15%. Gas prices double? Remove them from inflation stats. Food prices go up? Remove them from inflation stats. And don’t tell me about the stock market. The devaluation of the dollar by the Fed printing 40 billion a month is inflating the Market by 50%

      • Trikke

        I bet when Romney is elected President the stock market will shoot right up because people will at last have some real hope instead of obama’s hopey-changie empty promise!

    • Fire and Adjust!

      “votiing for Obama who just like him better than Mittens”

      Yes, because we pick the leader of the free world based on the same criteria high school prom kings are picked………”we like him better”……….

      Damned their qualifications, abilities, and potential

    • grais

      Your votes for Obama keep that poor, ignorant woman (and millions like her) in chains, convinced that she’s incapable of taking care of herself, or that she has no earthly reason to take care of herself. Your votes have sapped every ounce of self-respect and self-determination from generations of people like her, regardless of the color of their skin. You keep yourself in chains, voting to keep paying for all those handouts.
      Sleep well, slave/slave owner.
      You’ve been hosed.

      • Trikke

        Well said! Absolutely correct!

    • TugboatPhil

      We don’t think all of you are welfare cheats. We know that a good many are academic sponges and students who’ve never had to pay taxes on top of their own utilities and a mortage.

    • Maria

      You are a paid troll for Media Matters. 😛 That’s not hard working.

    • Donna Acosta

      Gimmick, not gimic.
      Everyone voting for Obama is supporting this mentality, like it or not. And we’re not laughing, just so you know.

  • IN_RadioGuy

    “Obama gave me a free phone!”

    So? Sports Illustrated did the same for me, but I wasn’t afraid to cancel the subscription when it started to suck.

    • Bill

      Yeah but you can think for yourself – just sayin

    • John (it true me am)

      Plus I bet it was shaped like a football. I doubt the Obama Phone is anywhere near that awesome.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Too bad Obama didn’t give her a mute button

  • Adela Wagner

    She may be related to the other woman from a few years ago saying something along the lines of “Gonna get some Obama CASH”. And asked where that “CASH” was going to come from, she replied “From Obama’s STASH”!…

    • Penmar

      I was thinking the same thing, Adela, first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the headline was the woman getting herself some ‘Obama Cash’.

    • Trikke

      OMG! I had forgotten that one!

  • orringtonmom (D)

    “everybody in cleveland low minority got obama phone…” wtf?

    • b_truit

      Correction: “erreyBody in cleelend low minorty gat Obama phone”

      • orringtonmom (D)

        i stand corrected. i suppose my response should have been “dafuq i jus saw?”

      • WingedBishop

        I thought she called it a PHO’

      • grais

        erreybody on “fool stamps” can get one, too.

  • Mama Bear

    Screaming Obama Banshee looks more like a man than a woman.

  • Kent Vig

    Can I call a wahbulance with my obamaphone?

  • Burt Zerker

    America has dealt with all kinds of subcultures and ‘movements’, and we have survived, but we have never seen anything like this stirring mass of takers. This kind of thinking is contagious and has the potential to take the country down. That has been their plan all along, break America, and then ‘fix it’ with communism.

    Hey Barry: If you’re going to play with fire, you should at least understand that it’s hot.

    • Brett McMicken

      and, people still wonder why he has so many people supporting him!

  • beefrank

    The free phone is only a OTC. What about the call and data plan?

  • WingedBishop

    My ears are still ringing after hearing that harpy. “KEEP OBAMA IN PREZIDENT Y’KNOW?” is repeating over and over. We need a warning before viewing a video like that!

    • Trikke

      I know. I saw the video last evening and my ears are still ringing. Oh my God! She is SO poorly spoken that it turned my stomach, too. How did she live in the US and end up that way?? Our public schools are that bad?? Or did she just not bother with school?

  • rainmcmanis

    Funny and sad!
    Her vote is equal to my vote. Scary!

    • Kevin Krom

      Scarier: her vote is MORE important than my vote, because she lives in a swing state and I don’t.

    • Trikke

      Oh geesss! That IS scary!

  • Rosewould

    I see a new HHS secretary.

  • MikeR

    What’s on her tongue?

    • Trikke

      Gum. Nice view, isn’t it!

  • MikeR

    This is the moron vote Rush talks about

  • John Segundo

    The protest was an SEIU event, they bussed these folks in. Now if Obama was really doing so well in Ohio, why would he need to do this stuff?

    • Bill

      you should hear the mediscare ad running in north central Florida that is paid for by SEIU. Completely false – but here is the thing, they are so stupid they are running this ad during opposite Rush Limbaugh, so in other words, they are wasting their money because the folks that listen to Rush on this particular AM station don’t buy that crap. Amazing how stoopid these jerks are.

      • Maria

        Let’s hope they keep that stupidity up. It’s good for us!

    • Trikke

      Hopefully you are correct in your assumption about how well obama is doing in Ohio.

  • strat77

  • Nana Taylor

    Obama didnt give her the phone-the govt program that funds this has been in effect for over 10 years through the USF.

    • TomJB

      So? What does it matter when the program started? The woman and her entitlement attitude is the problem.

      • spot_the_dog

        Exactly. I don’t remember a lot of entitlement-minded dole-bludgers rallying around Bush enthusing abut the amount of free sh!t they were scoring off him. It’s the attitude. This is what the captive Dem base looks like. And /sounds/ like.

    • weRbroke

      this woman THINKS that HE gave her the phone. That reality is sad.

  • NWFL Conservative

    I simply cannot watch more than a few seconds of this video it pisses me off so badly. Welcome to the new Republic

    I always wondered where the phrases “great unwashed” and “wretched refuse” came from, now I know. Just another shrieking Ob-ombie doing what they do best, steal oxygen from the rest of us

    The worst part about this video, apart from the fact that she sounds like a screeching banshee, is that this societal leech has the ability to cancel out my vote. That is a most depressing thought. We are truly done as a Republic.

    Ballot box or cartridge box folks, 40 days to go, forewarned is FOREARMED. I will do the first but am ready to do the second if it comes down to that. I spent 23 years of my life defending our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. And though I am now retired from the Army, I will STILL DO IT if that is what it takes to hold our country together and preserve our way of life.

    • Maria

      My husband is right along with you there.

    • Trikke

      Thank you for your service, Sir.

  • Terre Taylor Gildon

    Excuse me, but isn’t “”buying votes”” illegal?

    • NWFL Conservative

      WIth who is in office as AG, LEGALITY IS ALL RELATIVE. Black Panthers can intimidate white voters but Gibson can’t use certain kinds of wood in their guitars.

      • Buckshot LeFonque

        I’m glad Holder got those Sunburst terrorists at Gibson under control! I feel so much safer now.

      • Trikke

        Ah yes. Gibson’s ceo supports Romney so obama went after Gibson on trumped up charges, confiscated musical instruments and materials and cost Gibson a lot of money to defend itself against lies. That SO P’d me off! Gibson produces amazing musical instruments of high quality, but obama would destroy it for his own gain. The Turd-in-Chief has to go!

    • Trikke

      One would think, but obama is doing a lot that is illegal and no one is doing anything about it. The way I understand it, laws have to come from the House. obamacare came from the Senate, was cooked up in secrecy, no time was given for the House to read it, and the thing is now law! Isn’t that illegal? It is full of at least 22 tax increases, is already costing way more than we were told, and it is not even fully implemented! So what’s a little thing like buying votes with bright, shiny objects?

  • Guest

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

    • Maria

      Exactly! Because we’re giving it all to the leeches.

  • VeteranJack48

    Nothing you get from the government is free, you boob!!!!!!!!

    • Trikke

      She does not have 2 brain cells to rub together and create any heat so she cannot possibly reason that out.

  • thohan

    There will be blood. My concern is that some of it will be my own.

    • b_truit

      So be it. I’ll be bleeding next to you.

  • Luzmark1

    I not only support voter ids, but also a 10 question test before being allow to vote. Like who’s your daddy, and who is the vice president of each party.( See Howard Sterns, You Tube clips.)

    • Jennifer Steele Conner

      Really beginning to think that voter IQ tests are more important than voter IDs

  • kbielefe

    This is actually good news. By my calculations, even using likely skewed polling data, Romney only needs to purchase around 500,000 phones in key areas to sew up the election. What are they doing wasting money on ad buys?

    • Maria

      Romney will have to one up it. Give them all an LCD TV.

      • Trikke

        Just make sure whatever is given is shiny.

  • Frank Camp

    So…yeah, our dependency culture isn’t dangerous. Uh huh.
    Sadly, this is about half of our electorate.

    In other news, I’m a 23 year old, conservative acting student. I know, weird. I just started writing a political blog, and I would love it if you guys in the comments section could check it out, and give me some feedback, or subscribe. I just wrote a column about our relationship with Egypt, and another about the Greek austerity spending cuts and how that relates to the US. The address is

      Interesting blog, Frank, I particularly enjoyed Once Upon a Time.

    Since I am paying for the phone Obama gave you I think I am entitled to present it to you.I want to shove it up your freeloading arse!

    Ah, yes. A private in the Free Shit Army.

  • Penmar

    Maybe we’ll get lucky and she’ll be too busy talking on her phone to actually go and vote!

      Does she have enough brain power to know how to dial?

  • $21367552

    Sweet so if I can find videos of mulletted tea partiers with 4 teeth saying they don’t like Obama because he’s black that will also be a reasonable representation of your average Republican voter?

    • Donna Acosta

      Only if you can 1) find mulleted Tea Partiers (you’re supposed to capitalize proper nouns) with four teeth, and 2) you have statistics to back up both claims. Good luck!

  • Postbackxp

    Uncle Samuel be handing out free Phones again.

    Got no time for a Job but I can stand in the pouring
    rain with a Obama reelect sign. If she gets a
    Cold old Uncle Samuel has got that covered to with
    Obama care.

    I know that since she thanks Obama hands out free phones
    That she also must think that Samuel L Jacksons is really
    Uncle Sam.

    If she had a real phone she could see the tax in there that pays for this so
    called free phone. Its not Obama dear its the tax payers who gave you
    the free phone.

  • Eric Ellis

    Yeah, lady, but can you afford the service plan to make it work??? BTW I’m still trying to get that screeching voice out of my head!

    • Trikke

      Me too.

    I bet they were all made in China and stop working by Nov 30th.

  • Streetiebird

    Another super-classy article from Michelle about her own tweet. Looks like they found someone with the intelligence of a teabagger on the left lol

    • Maria

      Did you get your free super dooper Obama phone yet along with your food stamps and welfare?!

      • Streetiebird

        haha cute Di. I do quite well for myself and have never been on food stamps or welfare.

        • marcellucci


          • Streetiebird

            Awww how cute :)

        • Maria

          Thank you, I know I’m cute! :)

          • Streetiebird

            On the outside :) But I’ve seen the kind of insults you hurl…

          • Maria

            Oh, no, I’m still cute on the inside too. Reacting to others doesn’t count. :)

          • Streetiebird

            Dang, you win, you do seem genuinely cute :( My bad this time, but I’ll be back!

    • Donna Acosta

      I know it’s depressing seeing your liberal perspective repped like this, Streetie, but whoa, lay off the substances. You’re making less sense than usual.

      • Streetiebird

        repped? lol

  • MadDog07

    I’ll vote for him if he gives me a job… oh ya… And my freedom!!!

  • Sheldon Cooper

    Please, for the love of God America, get Romney in president!!!!

  • Laurence Powers

    Sickening on so many levels, the ugliness of the woman’s idea, the ugliness of the woman, the ugliness of her voice, the ugliness of her “in yo face” attitude, the ugliness of her stupidity. Just plain ugly.

    • Trikke

      Agreed. No dignity. No respect.

  • Brett McMicken

    of course he gave her a phone! someone has to answer all those calls from world leaders while he’s on his nationwide “eye candy” tour

    • Trikke


  • Maria

    I was not really paying attention to the TV when she came on it. I thought it was an angry Muppet shouting something about an Obamaphone. The second time around, I turned to face the TV and found out it wasn’t a comedy skit and it wasn’t an angry Muppet. It was this seriously crazy angry woman who seems to need some psychiatric help.

    She’s one of the leeches I was talking about in another thread. I can just afford to pay for my T-Mobile phone, so I sure as hell don’t want to give her money for her “free” O-Mobile phone.

    Hey, Obamaphone woman, go out and get a job to buy your own phone! Oh, you can’t? That’s right because unemployment is over 8%! Why, you ask? Obama is why! You still want to vote for him? Why? Obamaphone? But if he’s voted back in you’ll never get a job.. This is like an endless circle of stupid.

    She is not entitled to anything she didn’t earn. That is the honest truth.

    • Trikke

      She does not want a job, only free stuff.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    I heard this “Obama Lady” on Hannity today and I swear she sounded like a buzzsaw.

    • Donna Acosta

      Insulting to buzzsaws, which actually do useful work.

    • Trikke

      Such lilting tones…..

  • RHSimard

    Hey…Obama didn’t give you that phone. WE did. The people who earn. And pay taxes.

    Strangely, though, this one doesn’t bother me as much as the delegate (!) to the DNC who said she would support a law banning corporate profits-altogether. When asked what she thinks happens with corporate profits, her answer was “They keep it and they get bigger and bigger.”

    And these actually people vote! AARGH…!

  • Leslie Ward

    Ms ‘Obama’ phone was paid by the SEIU $11/hour to be there – and at other OH rallys. We are being lied to on so many levels. The ‘subsidized’ phone program started in 1984 to provide poor elderly with landlines. In 2008 (Dem controlled Congress) it was expanded to cell phones (but again, to the stupid people, it was Bush’s fault) and it expanded again in 2011 – costing those who pay taxes and pay for their own cell phone plans – billions (yes that is billions with a b) – as now a 2011 audit shows 269,000 have more than TWO phones/carriers! And it was just this year (March 2012) that it became the ‘Obama’ phone – just in time for re-election vote buying. Bought and paid for voters for the Democrats.

  • John Hanover

    The real irony would have been if it had been a land line. Wait probably some of the ” stimulus ” money paid for that phone to be made in China.

  • BeeKaaay

    And so many people qualify for the Obamaphone because they are out of work. I want fewer qualifying because THERE ARE ACTUAL JOBS FOR THE REAL PEOPLE AND NOT JUST CRONIES.
