How old is Malia Obama?


Don't ask her dad ...



Oops.  Malia is actually twelve.  H/T to Jim Treacher who observed, "As we've seen over the last few years, numbers aren't really Obama's strong suit."

Of course the media isn't reporting this, obviously because Obama didn't commit a major gaffe like confusing John Wayne's birthplace with the hometown of Wayne's parents.  I mean, it's not like the man who has a memory like a steel trap ever forgets the names of Congressional Medal of Honor winners, or something equally embarrassing.

She probably thinks he's a dick for saying that. Then again, he can always blame the teleprompter, like when he said he was awarding the MoH to a dead man in person.

Tina S:

The reason the media picked up on it is not because of liberal bias. It is because it happened at the same time Bachman was making her official announcement to run for president. Any candidate that that makes a gaff while they are making their announcement speach will not be ignored by the media.

And yet, I would bet dollars to donuts that he could tell you in detail each shot he took on each hole of the last round of golf he played.

The "FoxNews Update" that precedes the 'every 30 minutes news' on my local talk station this morning included a truncated clip of his speech yesterday, intentionally not including the part where he gets her age wrong. Classy.

Uh, Tina,
"happened at the same time Bachman was making her official announcement to run for president."

Do you remember the massive media coverage of D'OHbama's famous "57 states" comment during HIS campaign? No? (Hint - there wasn't any.)
How about the time he went to a campaign stop in New Philadephia, Ohio and said how nice it was to be in "New Pennsylvania"?

There is a HUGE media double standard in favor of liberals, and one merely has to open their eyes and ears to observe it.

Have another shot of cherry and omit the gaffe's in that sentence.

Yes I do remember reading about "57 states" comment in the media. No it did not get as much coverage as the 57 states comment for 2 reasson:

1. As I said anytime a candidate makes a gaff during their announcement speach it will not be ignored by the media. Because it happened during a major speach more reporters picked up on it.

2. It's far more commical when someone makes a gaff that compares themself to a serial killer than getting the number of states or ones child age wrong. Because it was far more comical than Obama's gaffs people repeated it more often.

Meet the new leftwing criteria for gaffe in #10. That way Tina can live with the lie that is her Obamala.

Tina,

The gaffe was that she got the borthplace of John Wayne the actor wrong, not that she compared herself to John Wayne Gacy. If you can't even keep your bullshit talking points right don't bother commenting.

"It's far more comical* when someone makes a gaff that compares themselves* to a serial killer than getting the number of states or ones child age wrong."

Except that she didn't say anything about John Wayne Gacy. That was appended to her statement by someone on the left side of the blogosphere just like the "I can see Russia..." comment by Tina Fey was to Sarah Palin. Neither woman said what was purported but when did that ever stop you or other morons on the left from being nonthinking parrots.

The (P)resident has made innumerable gaffes that are seldom if ever reported by the media that slavishly worships at his feet and he can't even keep up with his own child's age.

What can you expect from someone that spends most of his time demonizing things as per Alinsky and no time demonstrating real leadership other which way it is to the next tee.

dunce :

His 57 states and his signing the wrong date in England are just a couple of signs of his innumeracy. His wild numbers thrown around with no basis in reality are usually passed off as deliberate lies for political purposes but he really has no concept of millions, billions, or trillions. His awkwardness with 1 and 2 digit numbers is the real reason his academic records are sealed. He tries to cover his ignorance by using relative terms like more, less and you are rich enough.

Jim Addison:

Obama knows he can get away with nonsense like claiming the corporate jet depreciation break, which amounts to some $ millions per year is so important in a debate over $ trillions per year that he needed to mention it SIX times simply because he knows anyone who would vote for him now is very stupid and has poor math skills.

So of course they won't care about his daughters' real ages - those are mere "facts" which liberals believe are very flexible.

LOL...I feel like I have been in some alien galaxy the last two years.

We actually have a president who did nothing of significance in the US Senate (the 140 days he was there before beginning his campaign), who said he campaigned in all 57 states, who referred to the "Austrian" language, who doesn't know how to say Marine Corps (not "corpse"), who recently signed a guestbook with the year "2008", who said he presented the Medal of Honor earlier this year to a servicemen who was actually killed in 2006, and who doesn't even know the age of his oldest daughter?????

Really????
