Obama's Open Mic

When I read the below – it made me sick to my stomach.  Why is he still in office?  It’s GOT TO BE MORE THAN THE RACE CARD.

Obama's "hot mike"  comments <>
—  A “hot mic” has apparently picked up some very unflattering words from  President Obama this Fourth of July, and may plunge him deeper into some very  hot water.

“Hot”  or “open mics” frequently catch public figures unknowingly expressing their  true feelings, usually with colorful language (prime example: in 2000, then  presidential candidate George W. Bush was caught complaining to  vice-presidential candidate Dick Cheney that a reporter covering their  campaign was a “major league asshole”). However Obama’s “slip” while exiting  the balcony of the White House after his fifth Independence Day address may  well exceed the average “hot mic faux pas.”

The  smaller of Obama's two microphones, which was clipped inches below Obama’s  shirt collar, was supposed to have been turned off immediately after his  closing remarks to guests and reporters on the White House lawn. But the  microphone remained “hot,” catching the President muttering:

“God,  this holiday sucks! All this national pride shit get’s on my  nerves.”

Obama’s  candid comments are sure to further drag down his approval ratings, as recent  scandals involving the IRS, the Benghazi terrorist attacks, and massive spying  on average citizens by the NSA have sunk Obama’s approval numbers below that  of former president George W. Bush. It took Obama thirty seconds before he  completely exited the White House balcony and removed his microphone, during  which it picked up more utterances by the Commander-in-Chief, none of which  pundits view will help his ratings any time soon.

“You’d  think we’d stop celebrating the birth of the worst imperial power in history  –but nooooo…we have to do this flag-waving bullshit every year,” Obama  muttered more as he made his way from the podium. “I can’t believe I have to  miss a good day of golf for this crap!”

Although  Obama’s presumably inaudible words were not heard nearly as loudly as his  official Independence Day speech, a few reporters and attendees close to the  speakers beneath the White House balcony heard him distinctly. Obama tacked on  a couple more self-pitying quips before removing his clip-on mic,

“...Could  have been at Oakmont <>  with  Jay-Z now trying out that new Callaway set Alec (Baldwin) gave me last year!  Damn this day sucks!”
