Let me get this straight. Robert DeNiro, a Hollywood actor, makes a quip at a fund raiser event. Obama is not present when the quip was made, but Newt Gingrich "blames" Obama? Hmmm. Newt sounds like a desperate man grasping for straws.
Excerpt from Web site summary: "Cue outrage. On Tuesday, Newt Gingrich spoke at a Shreveport, La.campaign event and said that President Obama -- who was not in attendance when DeNiro made his oh-so-witty crack -- is responsible for the bad joke.
"If people on the left want to talk about talk show hosts, then everybody in the country should hold the president accountable when someone at his event says something that is utterly and terribly unacceptable as what Robert DeNiro said," Gingrich says."
I guess Obama is responsible for David Letterman's quip about Joe Biden when the first Lady made an appearance on a recent show. In fact, I think I may have made a quip about Newt Gingrich the other day. I wondered how he was able to have his marriage (with children) annulled. Perhaps Obama is responsible for my quip, too? Afterall, Obama was President when I made the quip. Isn't he responsible?
