Obama gloats on TWITTER: "Still a BFD"
“Still a BFD ...” is what President Barack Obama’s twitter handle tweeted out last night.
Obama’s campaign proverbially spiked the football
in light of Obamacare being held up by the Supreme Court, marketing a
t-shirt that says “Still a BFD” on it. Obama’s @BarackObama Twitter
account tweeted a link to where people could buy the $30 t-shirt, if
they can spare $30 in a down economy.
The “BFD,” of course, is a
reference to what Vice President Joe Biden said to Obama before Obama
signed Obamacare into law in the East Room of the White House. Biden,
forgetting there were microphones around him, told him that it was a
“Big f****ing deal.”
Open microphones caught those words. The
moment went viral, and the Obama campaign immediately launched a “BFD”
marketing campaign, capitalizing on the Vice President’s crassness that
overshadowed Obama’s legislative accomplishment.
tweets from his account, he signs his tweets “BO,” so a staffer tweeted
the link to the “Still a BFD” t-shirt. Obama’s campaign should have a
separate Twitter account for his campaign and allow Obama to exclusively
tweet from his personal account to prevent his account -- and by
extension, the office of the president -- from being cheapened by such
crass and gimmicky tweets. But with top Democrats on his campaign who
tweet vulgarities, this is probably par for the course for Team Obama
and will likely spur those opposed to Obamacare to donate even more
money to Mitt Romney and conservatives determined to repeal the law.
WE WILL NOT COMPLY!!!!!!!!
