(CNN) – Barack Obama appeared to have a bit of an awkward moment on the campaign trail in South Bend, Indiana.
From the pool report:
"[Obama] posed for report pictures with the staff when he apparently felt his phone start to vibrate in his pocket on his right thigh – against which one woman was closely pressed.
"Now that’s my phone buzzing there," he said, drawing a laugh. "I don’t want you to think I’m getting fresh or anything."
Next, Bill Clinton will say, "Ah feel that this conduct is highly inappropriate and not becoming a commander in chief."
Then, the resulting hypocrasy will collapse on itself causing a black hole to swallow the earth and we all perish.
Whta is the point u are trying to make here ?
i think CCN has better things to cover rather than statement where Barack is saying about his some usual daily phone call for something.
Don't erode your good name on the coverage ..
Come on La504. Give us one example instead of making general statements. Every day something does come out about Clinton, however. Sniper fire, Columbia, NAFTA, CanadaGate, the Hospital story, $109 million yet still a "friend of the poor man". Obama hasn't thrown mud about any of it. But if she does manage to steal the nomination, don't think the Republicans will be so nice.

"Ha ha, who says "getting fresh" anymore?"
I agree. Maybe he should have said "I am not getting Bill Clintony on you"
Hillary/Sinbad '08 : Experienced from day one (in dodging bullets)
That's the human side that people love to see and hear from a candidate, NOT one that feels like it's being overly strategized, rehearsed and scripted by staffers.
That was funny!
hah this is hilarious... i'm sure Fox News will distort this and try to make Obama out to be some sick guy, but its just another example of Obama's sense of humor and friendly character
Yeah I understand Barack..... Bill Clinton would reach for something else. That freak!!!
Ha, Ha, Ha!!
He probably wouldn't know how to unless someone told or probably showed him.
Why was it awkward? Sounded like a decent attempt at a joke. C'mon you guys haven't heard anyone say that before?
With everything going on this is something worth mentioning. Wow you must really need to fill media time.
Why are YOU so bitter? I mean geezzz.... get a grip.
It's unsettling to see so many people write negative comments about this guy, or use false information to slam him. He's an incredible human being, and you all should wise up.
I don't dislike McCain, either; I think he's been a great leader and has some solid ideals. But he's so interlinked with older politics, and therefore so many extremely conservative politicians will vie for influence.
Obama is great man. Stop being willfully ignorant.
Obama tells the truth.
"Every day there is some unpleasant, disappointing, and disturbing discovery about this man!"
is a LIE, however.
You may have "misspoke" and were thinking of HILLARY and her prgnant woman stories (LIE) under fire in Bosnia (LIE) firing Mark Penn (LIE) and 110 million dollars in bribes.
The WORST they can say about Obama is that his minister once said some bad things. That's it? Then they must not "have" anything on him, then.....
Hillary, on the other hand.....
"Getting fresh" is definitely the old way. My grandparents raised me, and they used to say that all the time, so I definitely understand where he got the terminology from. As stressful as this campaign is, its nice to see that he can still be self-deprecating and humorous.
So this gets news but another superdelegate endorsement from PA, former and popular mayor of Pittsburgh, Maslof endorsement of Hillary is not news? Why do endorsements of Obama get front page headline news on the politics section but not news like John Murtha, the strongest opponent for the war in Iraq endorsing Hillary?
Where are you sense of humor my friends?
You guys need to go get some and come back.
IT SEEMS OBAMA'S MIND IS CONSTANTLY IN THE GUTTER.
FIRST HE TELLS A CUSTOMER IN A RESTURANT REFERING TO THE POOR MAN'S MEAL THAT "HE WOULD BE A CHEAP DATE"
THEN HE REFERS TO A VIBRATING PHONE AS A SEXUAL INUENDO , I THINK OBAMA NEEDS TO PAY A VISIT TO MICHELLE AND THEY CAN PLAY HIS FAVORITE RAP SONG BY JAY Z
99 PROBLEMS IT IS A SONG THAT REMINDS OBAMA OF MICHELLE APTITUDES.
Clinton deserves to finish the race, however, I do not think it will effect the outcome. We need a change, especially away from the standard washington politics which Clinton is part of.
You may be a Big Spender! But the Engagement is Off..
Remember, November, for the rest of you're life..
The day you were left at the Church....
ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS....
Obama said something...
Bill Clinton DID something
This man has tolerated more than most of us can imagine. He has been no darling of the press. His race has been made an issue by the purportedly non-racist Clintons. They HAVEN'T been able to make any scandals stick because this is a man of true character. Shame on La504 for such an ignorant and racist viewpoint.
Hillary stop calling for negative tricks...!!!
ha ha , I like a president with a sense of humour
Presidential candidates are ordinary people too.
