Update: According to the Huffington Post, Mark Halperin was suspended from his position as an analyst on MSNBC this morning.

We here at Sandrarose.com wholeheartedly believe in the Constitutional right to free speech. But what MSNBC’s Mark Halperin said about U.S. President Barack Obama went way over the line of common decency and respect.

According to the Washington Post blog, Halperin, a political analyst on MSNBC, called Obama “a dick” during Thursday morning’s live broadcast of “Morning Joe.”

Halperin asked if there was a 7-second delay on because he wanted to comment on “how the president behaved” during a press conference that Obama held on Wednesday. Halperin then said, “I thought he was kind of a dick yesterday.”

Halperin immediately apologized for his “joke” when he was told there was no 7-second delay — but his apology was neither honest nor sincere. Remember, Haperin asked if there was a 7-second delay on, so he knew what he was going to say before he said it.

The left-wing media is treating Halperin’s comments as a slip of the tongue, or a “gaffe” — this is the codeword they use when they hold one of their own in high regard, and they don’t want to ruin his career.

Imagine what would have happened if Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity called Obama “a dick” on live television.

Watch excerpts of what he said below:


  • Fayla

    these yt men continually show how much it bothers them that Obama is President. Get over it losers!!! :shotsfired: ole insecure azz bastids! & he could’ve kept that re-fried “apology” Hell even he didn’t believe that :coffee:

  • KishaMinyonn

    I agree with you Auntie. There should be some level of respect shown to any President. What are we teaching our children if we call the President a dyck?

  • Nyedai

    He is full of crap and he meant every word he said.

  • masturbatehate

    Good morning!!

    Unfortunately some people do protect their “own” and this is one instance where he should be ripped! To me this is worse than that freaky Congressman Weiner! That comment was pure hate and like Fayla said you’re right about them “being bothered” and that stems from jealousy! They truly need to do as my screen name says!

  • Eyebrowsdown

    If Obama is dyck, then what does that make Halperin. He should keep his puzzy:lipssealed: :newbie:

  • ryand91

    I have to agree with Mr. Halperin. Obama did act like a straight up p3nis in tha press conference yesterday. I am slowly but surely becoming an Obama non supporter, it feels to me he isn’t taking the job seriously plus I’m going to need for him to get tough with the Republicans and the Democrats as well. I’m sick of people using the excuse that it’s going to take time to undo what Bush did, but if Obama would have came in there kicking ass and taking names he could have fixed a lot of it by now.

  • prima_donna2163

    Regardless of how he acted during a press conference he is the PRESIDENT. No matter who likes it or doesn’t like it doesn’t change the fact that he is the PRESIDENT. I swear on everything YT men are still stuck in that “Manifest Destiny” theory and this sense of entitlement that have a very hard time accepting that a person of color or God forbid a woman has a higher ranking than them. Well guess what? Get over it!

    I deal with the same BS at work!!!

    I didn’t see the press conference. We all know Obama is anal, but he still should be shown a modicum of respect, at least for the office he holds.

    @ryann
    Well it is not as simple as kickin ass and taking names Especially when you don’t have the power to fire an people elected official such as congress. There are certain powers he does have but to the extent of them refusing to follow leadership or opposing anything he is trying to do, what do you suggest he do.. :coffee: He can never satisfy everyone because when he tries the diplomatic peaceful approach everyones like he’s so soft on them and when he puts his foot down and tell congress to get their shyt together, now he’s a dyck for venting his fustration on how “Childish the republicans are acting right now… How dyckish are they for refusing to let go of the big tax breaks the rich are STILL receiving and are WILLING to let our elders (your mom, grandmom, grandfather and whomever else) be without benefits… :rolleyes:

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    Hey browneyes :welcome:

    Your right, if that would have been someone calling Bush a Dyck the whole TV station would have shut down and everyone in the room prolly fired…

  • ryand91

    @wutwuzmissin, I suggest that he stop playing golf with the Republicans who have clearly shown him no respect. I suggest that he stop bending to all of the Republicans’ whims. I understand that we need bipartisan cooperation but to me it always seems like the Republicans are winning. They disrespect the man, disrespects what he stands for as a the leader of this country, he needs to go into Congress and get tough with them and let them know that this foot dragging on key legislation is not acceptable. But my biggest issue with Obama is ending these wars, these wars should have and could have been ended years ago. He did act quite cocky and in a joking fashion in his press conference yesterday not in a manner conducive to that of the leader of our country.

    @Sandra, well I’m rather for the president to be called a dyck than a terrorist.

  • mrsloveleigh

    joined in on the joke? I didn’t hear a joke. just disrespect. I find it amazing that it’s deemed ok to be so disrespectful to the Pres of our country

  • cougar lover

    oh ok, it was only a “gaffe”…now i can go back to worshipping and holding my dear white counterparts in their respecive high regard…lol

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    @ryan

    He has been doing that, but when republicans own the majority, he is fighting an uphill shytstorm. As far as the wars, he has done more than the last two presidents combined and he has brought home more troops as well. The reason he was acting that way yesterday was because the reporters were asking the SAME DUMB AZZ QUESTIONS he refused to answer because they were irrelevant. Like the Gay marriage thing, the immigration thing (which is important but not as important as the budget) When people repeatedly ask you the same stupid question posed differently, wouldn’t that bother you?

    WOOPSIE. This has to be one of the biggest missteps ever. But I bet he won’t lose his job and have to go to rehab.

    Where was all this outrage when that man threw his shoes at George Bush when he was the President? Yeah Halperin needed to censor his words but come on.

  • ryand91

    @wutwuzmissin, yes it would bother me but at the end of the day it’s part of his job. He can always do like Bush did and just storm out of the press conference, but that would just be immature. And what does Clinton have to do with the wars? I agree that Obama does have an uphill battle to fight on both sides of the aisles, because members of his own party are trying to circumvent his power. I want the best for Obama like I want the best for any of my political leaders, but I just want him to put his foot down and stop being so damn nice. Because at the end of the day I know I will probably end of foot for him because those running on the Republican side are all scary and would send this country to hell in a hand basket,

    Until someone goes back to 6th grade to understand how the governmental process works I’m over the “Why can’t President Obama…”. The ultimate power is in the legislative branch. They decide what passes and what doesn’t. President Obama can hope, want and wish all he wants but unless Congress and the Senate have his back, nothing will happen. The ultimate power is in those branches of government. So if people want Obama’s agenda to pass, you should have voted for Congress(men/women) and Senators that wanted his agenda too; however, when the majority are Republicans who can’t handle a Democrat let alone a black man telling them what to do, they’ll do everything to make his life a living hell, i.e. see the last 2 1/2 years he has been in office.

    @Mrs.Sandra… I didn’t see the press conference. We all know Obama is anal, but he still should be shown a modicum of respect, at least for the office he holds.

    I totally agree 100%… I missed the press conference as well but he still deserves respect. Those people harvest too much Hate to the point it is counter productive and flat out silly… in my opinion

    @ WUTWUZMISSIN

    ABSOLUTELY AGREED WITH YOUR WHOLE POST!!

    If anything Obama was allowed to become President to shut us up. They knew they wouldn’t back him and would only be dealing with him for 4 years. “Let the ni$$@rs have this one.”

  • Jessie

    @Ryand91: You should consider running for POTUS because you make the job sound so easy. The man is fighting an uphill battle on a daily basis. I didn’t see the press confernence but so what, if he didn’t act like the white man wants him to act. What that idiot said on TV was disrespectful and if you are going to uphold him in his “mess” then I have to wonder about you also.
