(Talking to an empty chair) So, Mr. President, how do you handle promises that you have made when you were running for election, and how do you handle them I mean, what do you say to people? Do you just -- you know -- I know -- people were wondering -- you don’t -- handle that OK. Well, I know even people in your own party were very disappointed when you didn’t close Gitmo. And I thought, well closing Gitmo -- why close that, we spent so much money on it. But, I thought maybe as an excuse -- what do you mean shut up?
OK, I thought maybe it was just because somebody had the stupid idea of trying terrorists in downtown New York City.
I’ve got to to hand it to you. I have to give credit where credit is due. You did finally overrule that finally. And that’s -- now we are moving onward. I know you were against the war in Iraq, and that’s okay. But you thought the war in Afghanistan was OK. You know, I mean -- you thought that was something worth doing. We didn’t check with the Russians to see how did it -- they did there for 10 years.
And yes the audience did indeed laugh and applaud all the way through his very public display of dementia, which might very well have been the MOST disturbing thing of all.
I swear that was the freakiest thing I have EVER seen at a major political convention!
Update: This bizarre routine even inspired a sarcastic response from team Obama in the form of this tweet.
