For a Harvard educated president who prides himself on being well spoken, Barack Obama surely does promote vulgar and unimaginative language.

Yesterday’s F-bomb by VP Joe Biden is the latest in Camp Obama’s continuing attack on the spoken word.


President Obama isn’t afraid of cursing. He’s done it himself, calling Kanye West a jackass last year.

Last year, a microphone picked up Biden at a public event in Union Station saying, “Give me a fucking break.”

The president’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, is by all accounts a serial profanity spewer from way back. “Don’t fuck it up,” he reportedly warned British Prime Minister Tony Blair years ago.

Obama even made a pretty good joke last year when referring to Emanuel’s notorious potty mouth: “For Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony,” the president said with a smile, which was another way of giving Emanuel the green light to keep on cursing.

But there’s a problem with allowing profanity to prosper in your circle. The cursing becomes part of everyone’s everyday vocabulary. Then you start dropping F-bombs by accident.

You’ll be standing in church talking to the elderly pianist and you’ll say something like, “That was a fucking great version of ‘Just A Closer Walk With Thee.’”

Or you’ll say it into a live microphone for the whole world to hear.

  1. How about:
    Dick Cheney: “FUCK yourself!”
    and Bush: “Major league ASSHOLE!”

    Same league of Evil Tongues??
    Any Republican wanna answer here?
    Perhaps You, Jeff Prince?

  2. I hope nobody paid for this editorial. This is simply rubbish and isn’t worth the 16kb of space it takes up on a server.

  3. BalanceMan — Bush and Cheney got plenty of criticism when they cursed in public.

    Now it’s Obama and Biden’s turn. Seems fair to me. Should they get a free pass because they’re Democrats?

    Bush and Cheney left office after eight years of being criticized. They’re old news. Why do you bring them back up? Can’t Obama and his administration be judged on their own actions?

    It’s funny, whenever I post critical things about Bush, Cheney, or Sarah Palin, I’m slammed as a liberal media jerk. But when I write critically about Obama, you assume I’m a Republican.

    It’s always about partisanship among the narrow-minded druids.

  4. It’s quite obvious how very low class and illiterate Joe Biden and Barack Hussain Obama are by their use of such vulgar disgusting language! They are shameful! Acting like ignorant little children! This ilk represents the United States of America?

  5. I cuss as much as the next Texan, but if I were at the president’s podium with 20 cameras and mics on me, I’d like to think I’d have a little more common sense or class that to say the “fuck” word.
