Obama: 'Socialist Mop,' 'Grab a Mop'

Obama was talking mops at a fundraiser in San Francisco last night.

He lectured Republicans, actually "non-Democrats," on mopping.

Video.




Transcript, from the White House

OBAMA: Now, to the non-Democrats who may be watching today -– (laughter) -– I want everybody to know we believe in a strong and loyal opposition. I believe in a two-party system where ideas are tested and assumptions are challenged -- because that’s how we can move this country forward. But what I reject is when some folks decide to sit on the sidelines and root for failure on health care or on energy or on our economy. (Applause.) What I reject is when some folks say we should go back to the past policies when it was those very same policies that got us into this mess in the first place. (Applause.)

Another way of putting it is when, you know, I'm busy and Nancy busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess –- we don’t want somebody sitting back saying, you're not holding the mop the right way. (Applause.) Why don’t you grab a mop, why don’t you help clean up. (Applause.) You're not mopping fast enough. (Laughter.) That's a socialist mop. (Laughter and applause.) Grab a mop –- let’s get to work.

Mop, shmop.

Obama needs to stop yapping about the mess he inherited.

In the relatively short time he's been in office, he hasn't been mopping well. Rather than cleaning things up, he's been spreading the mess around, increasing it exponentially.

It's Obama's mess. Obama is responsible.

Step one in cleaning up the mess: Get the mops out of the hands of the liberals and into the hands of solid conservatives.

Why in the world would we give the mop to the people who created the mess, created it on purpose as a matter of fact, and who have no interest in doing anything but creating more of a mess? Loser.

___,

I'm not quoting Obama incorrectly.

What I posted is the transcript from the WHITE HOUSE.

Good grief.

That is incorrect. He says plain and clear "don't accuse me of having a socialist mop." Liar!

Read this, from the White House website:

If you have a problem with the official White House transcript, then call 202-456-1414.

I do have a problem and that problem is that he never said "thats a socialist mop"

He clearly states "dont accuse me of having a socialist mop"

i've watched the video multiple times and that part multiple times more.

this conservative nonsense squandering over statements that were never said is quite sad.

if you want to gripe about something, complain about something THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED!!

What are you talking about?

Are you watching a different video?

Obama has been using this mop shtick a lot lately. You must be thinking of another clip, another speech.

Watch the clip on my post. Read the WHITE HOUSE transcript.

Look at the date of my post and the date of the White House transcript.

Really, it's not that difficult.

I don't know why the Leftists are bent out of shape over Obama saying "socialist mop."

The WHITE HOUSE didn't have a problem with it.
