President Barack Obama and the Hug Felt ‘Round the Nation

by Sunnyjane

By now, it is obvious to anyone who has not been feeding their families only rice or living in a mole hole for the last several years, that Quitter Former Worse Governor Ever Sarah Palin has once again shown herself to be a pandering, bigoted, delusional, self-deceiving, and hypocritical buffoon.   

In what was supposed to be dead-and-buried Andrew Breitbart’s final legacy to Fox News cave dwellers and far-right haters across the nation, an out-of-focus video showing Harvard student Barack Obama and the late Harvard professor Derrick Bell in a two-second semi-embrace twenty years ago is proof positive that President Obama was, is, and always will be a racist and a…radical hugger!

Of course, accusing President Obama of trying to divide the country based along lines of gender, of religion, of income, even of race is confirmation that if Sarah Palin could package and sell hypocrisy, she’d corner the market and be right up there financially with unemployed Mitt Romney.  Let's remember that it was GOVERNOR Sarah Palin who, right after she took office, ordered the mass firing of every person of color because they made her feel uncomfortable

But, we at Politicalgates have a reputation for blogging integrity, so it is incumbent upon us to do our usual in-depth investigative research into this charge.  And what we found was absolutely shocking – shocking, I tell you!

The Radical Serial Hugger Exposed!

The man will hug ANYONE, from an elderly lady needing comfort to a young boy who just wants a hug from his President!

Tammy Duckworth and the
President share a hug in November 2011 
 He even -- gasp! -- hugs Australian school girls!

Senator Barney Frank gets a hug.

Even members of the military need a visit and a hug, 
and definitely appreciate it!

Former presidents need a hug, too.
As do sons of political opponents.  John McCain IV

A grieving relative at Arlington Cemetery definitely needed a hug from the President.

And a fussy baby can always be calmed by a good presidential cuddle!

Of Course, the President Does Have His Standards!

Hey, Sarah, listen up: He won, you lost.  Go back to your table, sit down, and shut up.

Less than two weeks after President Obama's inauguration, he attended the Alfalfa Club's annual dinner.   Palin decided that she would definitely accept the Club's invitation, sayingThe Alfalfa dinner, yes, in fact that's because President Obama is scheduled to be there.  And how often will I have an opportunity to have dinner with the president?  I will take up that offer to do so."

Things didn't exactly go the way Sarah planned.   As she brazenly approached the President at his head table, she was intercepted by none other than Joe Lieberman, who had been considered but passed over in favor of Palin, for the vice presidential selection by John McCain.

In his remarks that night, President Obama told the crowd, "Good to see Gov. Palin here. I never expected to see you paling around in this crowd," Obama said in a wry reference to Palin's charging during the campaign that Obama had been "paling around with terrorists."

After a good-natured laugh from the audience, he added, "Congratulations on your Golden Globe for '30 Rock'." That was a salute to "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" star Tina Fey, whose Palin imitations turned out to be one of the campaign's unlikeliest highlights.

There are no reports on her reaction to the President's little Sarah-roast comment, but considering thin-skinned Palin's attacks on him ever since, I think we can all use our imaginations.


Mrs. Janet D. Bell, widow of Dr. Derrick Bell, tells in her own eloquent way during a discussion with Ed Schultz of MSNBC, how disappointed she is that the far right zombies of this country could try to destroy her husband's reputation.
