I demand that he just apologize for Robert DeNiro in general.

He is the president after all.

Well, first someone is going to have to explain to me how this joke is offensive, because I'm not seeing it. Any of you wingnuts wanna take a shot at that?

I lent a DVD to my neighbor and he scratched the hell out it.

I demand a Presidential apology.

If I was Obama with all the shiat that Rush, Hannity and Coulter have spewed about "Moochele" I would slap Gingrich in the face with a glove and challenge him to a duel.

He mentioned that the GOP is a bunch of guys with white wives?

I have nothing.

I think Newt is mostly the last person who should be talking about wives. Mostly.

Just like the presidential candidates did when the de facto leader of the Republican party went on a 3 day slut tirade?

It calls attention to what GOP Neo-Cons said about being ready for a Black president in 08

"What DeNiro said last night was inexcusable and the president should apologize for him. It was at an Obama fundraiser, it is exactly wrong, it divides the country,"

LOL WUT

Obama should first say that those were not the words he would have chosen then ask if someone can explain who this Gingrich fellow is?

In retort, Obama paraphrased Newt: "He believes in apologizing for those who mock our young women. I will never apologize."

You're not allowed to point out that the Republican party is a bunch of old,w hite guys.

I Said    [TotalFark]  
What Obama should say:

"He's trying to pretend to be offended on behalf of women, because he and the rest of the field said nothing when Rush called the young woman a 'slut'. They're losing woman voters due to their inexcusable silence in response to Rush Limbaugh and the flurry of anti-women's-healthcare bills their party is pushing through, and this is a transparent and absurd attempt to fool them into coming back."

"Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?" DeNiro said.

Uh, Newt wants an apology for THAT joke? Are you serious?

Here's what Obama should reply:

"Sure, I'll apologize to your wives, Newt."

is that what "dividing our country" means now? Talking about white people?

Grinchy doesn't even get the joke. It is a play on the fact that we finally have our first non-white president and first lady. It is in no way an attack on the GOP candidates wives.

Did Newt ever apologize for his mother saying that Newt thinks Hillary Clinton is a biatch?

No. He blamed Connie Chung for tricking the old lady into saying it.

Shut the farking fark up, Newt, you fat farking fark joke of a man, you piece of farking shiat.

"Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?" DeNiro said. "Too soon, right?"

...

Gingrich said, according to CNN. "I think the country is ready for a new first lady and he doesn't have to describe it in racial terms."


And people say conservatives don't get humor.

Seems more like a parody of all those asinine "Is America ready for a black President/First Lady?" stories from 2008.

You'd think they'd appreciate a slam on the MSM Lamestream Media.

Meh....it was just a sarcastic joke.

More importantly, De Niro needs to apologize for a lot of the crappy movies he has done since "Casino".

It's not. But Newt Gingrich likes attention, and he knows dumb people like to hear about how Obama should apologize for being a black President.

Yes, I agree. It was stupid for the Obama campaign to comment on it at all.

JerseyTim: Some analysis on the joke and why it's wrong from someone who has a great sense of humor.


FTFA: "But because the joke is directed at white women, it's just fine."

Actually, the joke was directed at those who would have to get elected in order for there to be a white first lady, but I digress.

....And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and DeNiro and ACORN took the easy one traveled by EVERYBODY!
And that has made all the difference

I'm still waiting for someone to explain why it's "offensive," and I suspect I'll be waiting a while. Hell, I'm not sure I even understand why it's supposedly "inappropriate."

Judge them not by the color of their skin, nor the bad joke making ability of actors, but by the content of their character...as cheerleaders in a political forum where the spouse of a politician is not supposed to make waves.
