After All, Obama Was Only a Kid When Sanford and Son Was On

Michelle Malkin is reporting on Barack Obama’s little mix-up on his Sitcoms

This is what happens when a candidates goes off script. Barack Obama, in Raleigh, N.C., was doing a riff attacking John McCain for supporting the idea of putting some mandatory retirement money into the stock market. “If Senator McCain is elected, we’ll have another president who wants to privatize part of your Social Security. Could you imagine if you had your Social Security invested in the stock market these last two weeks, these last two months? You wouldn’t need Social Security. You’d be having a — like, what was it, Sanford and Son. `I’m coming Weezie!”

Referring to the great Red Foxx’s famous fake heart attack.  Of course, Weezie was on The Jeffersons, not Sanford and Son.  Not a big deal.  After all, the notion that Obama could remember much from when he was eight years old just really doesn’t make much sense, George. 🙂 But just for old time’s sake,  1972-1977.  This is a very funny episode called “My Fair Esther.”
