  1. Malcolm’s LATimes piece is a wonder in soft peddling the hard truth of the Regime. Its not poor optics…They. Just. Don’t. Care. Deal. With it.

    What I find most fascinating, that even in Liberal LaLa Land…the comments have been scrubbed or just plain turned off. The article has been Tweeted and FB’d…but not commented upon. Odd, huh?

  2. Man went to apply for a passport asrmed with a ‘Short Form’ birth certificate. He was told to return with a long form. His reply was : I need a long form to get a passport, and Obama only needs a short form to become President? PS Check out the new requirments to get a passport. One, list all people present at your birth.

  3. I have mixed feelings about Andrew’s spot on piece. I’ve been saying the same thing through videos and photos for ever, but luckily they don’t pay attention to me. They just might pay attention to Andrew now that’s he’s let the cat out of the bag. I especially liked his highlighting BO’s obvious showing off at the Easter egg hunt. Embarassing, but his minions eat it up.

  4. OkeyDokey, when MotherNature gets her “rights” just like people enjoy, she will be promptly indicted for massive property damage and manslaughter for the tornados, hurricanes, droughts and floods all over the world. FatherTime, the GrimReaper and RoundTuit will petition the courts for equal protection of their “rights”.

    Syria is not Libya, Easter is a “holiday”, and MrCarney has revealed that he is out of his comfort zone.

      • Dont forget Al Gore and the Man-Bear-Pig will finally be vindicated… Syria will ultimately handle itself,I have alot of contacts there who want him tried in the ICC.And it will be good for Israel and us because that severs Iran’s mainline to Hamas and Hezbollah.When Assad falls, it will help the peace process immensely.Mr.Carney is a before mentioned spineless tool,hes pretty harmless,but shows characteristics of a loose cannon on manners and respect for religions of others.

    • Thank you for sharing the article, Granny Jan. It gets a little depressing thinking of this wonderful country becoming another Weimar Republic, but it sure looks like hyper-inflation is the next stop on this train wreck of an economy. The only silver-lining in this article is the next to the last paragraph, “Barack Obama has lost his re-election.” Unfortunately, he won’t go down without a fight, and as BTO sang…You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.

  5. Mr. Malcolm has written an excellent piece, but I think he’s missing the larger issue of what they reveal. These pictures are part of a carefully crafted campaign to present an image that the administration believes the people want to see (which is absolutely unremarkable in politics). And that’s the problem: this is what they think we think a president should be like.
