Obama: ‘My jeans fit very well’

President Barack Obama on Friday said critics of his “mom jeans” should zip it.

“I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” Obama told radio host Ryan Seacrest in an interview. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I’ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well.”

Though the joke stems from 2009, when Obama threw out the first pitch at the Major League Baseball All Star Game, the ding resurfaced earlier this month, when Sarah Palin slammed the president as being known for wearing “mom jeans.” Her barb came shortly after Obama was photographed in the White House in jeans while talking on the phone to Russian President Vladimir Putin about the Ukraine crisis.

“People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil,” Palin said to Fox News’s Sean Hannity. “They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”

There you have it, straight from the horse’s ass – Sarah Palin is still living rent-free inside his head.

The issue isn’t what kind of pants Barack Obama wears. The “mom jeans” thing resonates because it captures the essence of Obama – a socially awkward, nerdy hipster who is way out of his league. His handlers have spent a lot of time and money trying to project an image of Obama as a cool, debonaire, competent leader, but every so often the real Obama can be seen behind the curtain.

    I have a hard time thinking of another politician this thin skinned.

      I recently saw Spaceballs and Dark Helmet comes pretty close to what I imagine goes on in the West Wing. Rick Moranis does a spot on parody of our Dear Leader.

      Speaking of thin, did anyone happen to see a clip of him doing the WebMD Interview? His legs were crossed, and he looked waaaay too thin.

    Plane Deliberately Diverted, Malaysia Says

    SEPANG, Malaysia — Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia announced on Saturday afternoon that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 left its planned route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing as the result of “deliberate action” by someone aboard.

    Mr. Najib also said that search efforts in the South China Sea had been ended, and that technical experts now believed that the aircraft could have ended up anywhere in one of two zones — one as far north as Kazakhstan in Central Asia, and the other crossing the southern Indian Ocean.

      I don’t trust this guy, it reeks of coverup.

      Interesting idea on how the plane could have evaded radar

      • 49erDweet says:

        Interesting theory. One drawback is at that altitude and speed “heavies” leave a huge, turbulent wake. Safe trailing distance is sometimes measured in quarter hours, not minutes. What was described could have been risky,

      • DeniseVB says:

        Very interesting, especially to this lay person on flight terms. Meanwhile, our feckless leader is defending his “mom pants” to the Kardashian’s producer. 😉

    • 49erDweet says:

      So now the engines were running seven hours after the transponder was turned off? And it was at the far end of it’s known fuel range and somewhere on an arc between Tibet and Christmas Island? Wowser!
      From where military radar last spotted it approaching the Andaman Islands, to a position on the arc published in the NYT, it looks less and less as if it could have gone North – notwithstanding VM’s link, because somewhere along the line it would have to divert from the Barcelona track and head off on it’s own into fairly heavily radar-covered airspace.
      Turning South, and circling back around toward Indonesia to avoid heavily scanned flight tracks would have made more sense. It’s interesting the published sighting arc cuts across Jakarta.

      • 49erDweet says:

        “pinging” not “sighting” arc.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Furthermore, if a maximum remaining fuel range arc were to be drawn from the last radar sighting it would be interesting to see where it intersected the “pinging arc”, which was also published today in the wapo.
        I’m thinking airfields within a 200 mile radius from wherever those two arcs intersect are currently undergoing extremely heavy satellite scrutiny.

        • Somebody says:

          49er the original circle that’s been up for days never made sense. Beijing was at the northern arc of that circle. Airliners are required to carry additional fuel, enough to hold for a little while (different rules as to number of minutes depending on country/airline) typically they have enough to hold for minimum 15 minutes most likely 30 or somewhere in between, I’m betting the higher end on an international flight. Then they must have enough fuel to not only hold but also make it to their alternate airport which they must always have a plan for an alternate airport in the event they have to divert due to weather or any number of problems. Also, they would have had enough fuel on that flight to accomodate varying weather conditions which can have an impact on fuel economy.

          Given that the weather was optimal, my husband has been complaining from the get go that the range had to be longer and the circle much larger. Whatever the range it’s not a mystery, the officials know how much fuel was on that plane and the planes capabilities.

          I’m leaning more and more toward something or someone on that plane was the goal. I’m not convinced the plane itself was the goal, even though I know that’s the most popular theory. If the the plane was the goal doing it this was just doesn’t make sense. There are much easier ways to get your hands on an airplane and you don’t need a 777 to make an impact if you know what I mean. I think it’s Singapore but it could be somewhere else in SE Asia, but there is a huge maintenance place over there where airlines from all over the world send their planes for maintenance. If your goal was simply an airliner why not work that angle, plenty of pickings and no passengers to deal with. UNLESS your goal was to take hostages along with the airliner, but that doesn’t seem to be the case because we haven’t heard of any ransom demands. Plus the most likely places to land and take off are all government controlled. Sure there are state sponsors of terror, but they can afford a plane why steal one in such a dramatic way? Also, why piss off the two largest militaries in the world by taking their citizens? It doesn’t make sense. Who was on that plane and what was on that plane???? There must have been something or someone specific to that flight, I really think so.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Agree on the range. The destination ETA was 6:30a but it was still operating(?) at 8:11a, so it had more fuel than the circle indicated. But I doubt much beyond 8:20-ish, or that’s pretty sloppy management. You may be right but common thing about hijackers is they are technically savvy but strategically dumb, so I’m open to any scenario. (Trying to post a graphic I worked up a few mins ago).

            I told someone you can get a lot of press by making 200 Youtube videos of hostages. I’m afraid that may be the goal.

    The clothes are a cover-up! I’ve reached the point where I cannot stand to listen to him or watch him. The smug attitude, the arrogant, hipster walk, that condescending smirk and the inability to talk coherently make me run for cover! I am still in a state of utter disbelief that this man, with no credentials to be the president, was elected the first time, let alone the second. It seems to me that it is like a movie-making parallel….put on some fancy clothes, do the make up, give the guy a script to read and then glorify him. He is an “image”, not a president. But we are so movie-like in our thinking any more that we accept this…..Oh, so-and-so was really great as the president in that movie…well, it was just a movie….so-and-so was not really a president. We are living in an era of illusion. If there is a movie that truly depicts Obama, it is the Wizard of Oz….how fitting.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Did you guys see this ? The Dems have jumped the shark…..well, again……

  5. DeniseVB says:

    The American Thinker blog thinks Obama is thin-skinned and Sarah’s living rent-free in his head too …..

    Just thinking about all the ways SP’s been attacked by the left, pushing his “mom jeans” button shouldn’t bother BO. The WH did release an official photo of him in the Oval in his jeans as though he were ordering a pizza rather than dealing with Presidential stuff. It was just a bad optic.

    • Lulu says:

      Remember when people who were “insecure” were told there is probably a reason that you are insecure such as you should try harder, you really are ignorant, or your personality sucks? Now we are supposed to “tolerate” the lazy, ignorant or obnoxious. It never occurs to them to improve their deficits so they never grow or learn anything. That’s Obama. It is an endless lowering of standards so we wind up with President Chia Head.

    Snowden on Dianne Feinstein’s hypocrisy:

    In a surprisingly combative statement on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Feinstein, who has been widely criticised by privacy experts for failing to hold the NSA to account, accused the CIA of conducting potentially unconstitutional and criminal searches on computers used by her staff.

    The remarks put the Democratic senator on a collision course with the CIA’s director, John Brennan, who strongly denied “hacking” the committee’s computers. Feinstein described the controversy as “a defining moment for the oversight of our intelligence community”.

    In a statement to NBC News, Snowden said: “It’s clear the CIA was trying to play ‘keep away’ with documents relevant to an investigation by their overseers in Congress, and that’s a serious constitutional concern.”

    Snowden, who is in Russia on temporary asylum, added: “But it’s equally if not more concerning that we’re seeing another ‘Merkel effect,’ where an elected official does not care at all that the rights of millions of ordinary citizens are violated by our spies, but suddenly it’s a scandal when a politician finds out the same thing happens to them.”

    I know that I’m displaying generational ignorance, but what are “mom jeans” ??? My jeans look pretty much like the sociopath-in-chief’s jeans, so do I need to buy gangsta jeans in order to not be an object of ridicule? Basically I wear whatever the wife buys me, does she need re-education??

    • Lulu says:

      I’m ignorant too. My objection is that he wears them too high. Men that wear jeans above their navel look dorky. My husband calls them “armpit pants” and when they are too short they are “floods”.

    • Constance says:

      Any jeans that are comfortable and that you can move freely in are “mom jeans”. In the case of women desirable jeans would be skin tight and cut low. In the case of men desirable jeans would be very baggy to the point of not fitting or very tight and trendy looking.

      I wear my mom jeans like a badge of honor. Of course at this point I look like crap in the skin tight low cut ones so it’s basically my only choice.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m totally off the radar, I wear Pajama Jeans …. everywhere. At my age, it’s all about the comfort and I don’t care 😛 Also just discovered leggings to wear with mid-thigh tops. I’m such a fashionista /snort.

    • Ann says:

      I like my “mom-jeans”; the 70-style hip huggers that are worn today really only look good on people who are smaller than a size 5. Nothing makes me go O_o more than seeing a saggy 50 year old wearing jeans that show the hip (and gut) fat. Way to add 20 pounds to your appearance!

      Looking at those two pics, it ain’t the “mom-jeans” that made for a bad picture.

    • 1539days says:

      Part of it is attacking Obama’s vanity, which is an aspect of his narcissism. Plus, Obama is skinny even if he is flabby. He doesn’t need jeans to conceal his gut so his “comfortable” jeans are loose all over.

    Reading Jane Eyre to my pup because i cannot take one moe minute of Harry Potter. I suppose I should be thankful. I am we at Lowood and Jane is alone. KID is fucking 7 and it took me two reads in college to figure out she was the fairy godmother.

    Have to go into hiding because not only did I call my baby girl bossy I also said she was an obnoxious tyrant then being the cruel vile person I am I made her look up tyrant and obnoxious in the etymology dictionary that is in the door way. Cuff me now. Everyday I call her some form of monster bossy despot tzarina. She says what does that mean and the dictionary is open.

    • Constance says:

      I like bossy impertinent children. They may drive their parents nuts but the world doesn’t beat them down. They do great once the leave the nest. Of course these days you need dynamite to blast adult children out of the nest. I really don’t get that, I couldn’t wait to get away from home from the time I was 16.

        If my youngest had been a wallflower I’m not sure she would have made it through her chemo. She had reaction after reaction, complication after complication. I will always be convinced her feisty spirit kept her alive. Much of the medical staff didn’t appreciate her or her mouth, whatevs. She was 7 going on 30 and they expected to treat her like she was 3.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Obama’s using JK like he used HRC, someone to blame bad foreign policy on when he can’t use GWB. Just like every other appointee in his administration. Wonder when the Democrats will figure out, BO’s just not that into them either. Kinda sad to watch it play out and see a once great political party turn into flaky Justin Beiber fangirls. Ugh.

      It is perspective. Jane was a woman from another time as was Rochester. He had a fucking lady locked in his attic. Love how she reinvented Cinderella as an adult but seven how do explain repression. One good thing I have the anti,christ as a puppy. She eats everything. We had to get her a shock collar because of the neighbors. She was already returned twice so next time ouch. And really I feel that what she did to a very expensive dining room table augmented it.

    About the missing plane – I hate to say this, but I am actually hoping now that the plane is either crashed or disabled. 😦
