‘Phony scandals’: Tennessee congressman has a dare for President Obama

Yesterday in Illinois and again today in Florida, President Obama claimed that Americans should stay focused on the economy and not get distracted by “phony scandals” such as Benghazi or the IRS targeting of conservative groups.

Will President Obama take Tennessee Rep. DesJarlais up on his dare? We highly doubt it.

  • Avniel

    I dunno, if anybody knows “phony” its Obama – JustSayin

    • ObamaFail

      No just sayin about it. He’s shown his disregard for America’s well-being the entire time he’s been in office.

    • Frustrated Teacher

      You beat me to it. He’s a phony President so it is apropos for him to have ‘phony’ scandals. He’s just an idiot.

      • Eric Boyer

        Teacher, heal thyself. Or are you just “and” idiot?

        • Frustrated Teacher

          Sorry I made a typo….Never make one of those?

  • Tugger – not quite dead yet

    What , in Obama’s history, leads you to believe he would have any problem telling that to these families? He has no conscience and does not seem to feel any sense of guilt or remorse.

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      To provide evidence of satisfying the dare, the event has to be made public and that would be bad publicity.

    • Peetweefish

      That’s why I farted into an envelope and mailed it to him.

      • Billie Slash

        Flatulate We Much!!

      • Hiraghm

        Be sure to get the carbon credits taken off your taxes…

    • Teddi

      Hey Obama – you are an a-hole liar, pure and simple…

      He couldn’t take the beating.

  • TonyMitch

    Obama won’t take any challenge that has to do with being a man, taking responsibilty and is not politically advantageous for him. He is a coward

    • David

      Oh, ever so right. Thanks

  • Republicanvet

    …just will not happen. Preezy Choomie Kardashian is a community agitator, which means he’s a coward without an adoring crowd around him.

  • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

    Me too.
    I would like to see their folks confront Obama on his statement.

    • Republicanvet

      Actually I would like to see them on the talk shows tonight stating what they think of Choomie’s whining…particularly Smiths mother.

  • wackypacky

    Phony president,phony american.

  • World B. Free

    Good message, lame delivery.
    You can barely read the writing on the White House photo.

  • Marvin Nelson

    He doesn’t have the stones to face the families. Besides, what difference does it make now. We will NEVER forget Benghazi and the heroic Americans who died there. Oblamer is a coward and not worthy of the office.

  • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

    Our phony president should give their parents the same consideration he gave Trayvon’s.

    • Clete Torres

      He doesn’t have the balls to. And never will.

      • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

        He has no class at all.
        He is an embarrassment.

  • stdog

    Dare him to release white house emails.

  • David

    We can depend on the watchdog press to ask Obama to reveal which of the scandals and criminal acts are “phony” and to prove it . . .

  • Bill Board

    Oblah-blah doesn’t have the testicle fortitude for much of anything.

  • Clete Torres

    Mods: anything by this poster is spam..

  • Clete Torres

    The only thing phony is this president and his ‘vetting.’

    • GaylePutt

      What vetting?

      • Clete Torres

        My point exactly.

  • nc

    BHO repeats “phony scandals” line. Sinks to yet another new low.

    • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

      What else did you really expect from our ‘phony’ president?

    • Clete Torres

      Just when you think he can’t stoop any lower…he does.

  • ObamaFail

    The only thing phony is Obama’s claim that he has a plan that will fix the economy. Every idea he has put in place has caused more harm than good. He’s a phony American.

    • MarcusFenix

      His plan to fix the economy: take money from people who work hard to earn it, and give it to a bunch of lazy do-nothings who want a free lunch (and Obamaphone).

    • Finrod Felagund

      Sure he has a plan to ‘fix’ the economy, problem for us is that it fixes the economy in much the same way as a horny tomcat gets ‘fixed’.

  • The Official Andy ®

    I just cannot understand how the Obamatrons can still believe in him. I remember the first time I ever heard him speak, when they broke in during the Presidential election results in 2004 to show the new Senator from Chicago accepting his win. My ex-wife asked “who is this guy, and why do we care?”. I said “obviously our next President”. I said then and I still say today, he is nothing but a big, loud, smelly fart: he makes noise, he creates a stink, but when you turn around, there is NOTHING there.

    I can’t believe those people who attended obama’s speech sat their and listened to his BS! Not one of them had the decency to challenge obama when he called Benghazi phony? This man is a disgrace to the office of he Presidency!

  • bkyguy

    state of florida v zimmerman = phony scandal

  • http://www.davidsmusings.com/ David

    With the Empty Suit in Chief, excuses are the norm. Solutions, the exception.

  • Justin Levesque

    Obama does not have the courage to take up the Congressman’s dare.

    He’ll get Jay Carney to do it.

    • GaylePutt

      And Carney will jump at the chance to lick his master’s hand.

  • RLEE

    how long has the economy been in the tank? How long since first scandal? so how are they related at all? Is he trying to say he cant fix the economy because he is being bogged down by scandals? If it is all such a time consuming thing scandals the economy why does he have so much time to golf and take vacations? Plus Bengazi happened not yet a year ago so lets get real (even the left) the man cannot fix the economy and should be in fed prison for the real scandals!!!!!

  • AZWarrior

    Phony scandals don’t come back in bodybags.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Not gonna happen. That would require the Naked Emperor to actually make contact with the families…

  • Fiala

    Obama will keep saying it; the media will keep repeating it; the brainless will start to believe that the scandals are phony. That is what obama is counting on…it’s just a matter of time.

  • herman edwards

    the man of perdition Obama ,the father of all lies

  • Eric Boyer

    First of all that’s NOT what the President said. Second, this is the first time in history one party has BLOCKED every possible solution to the country’s problems.
