  1. Unless he takes the chopper to McLean, he’s going to mess up traffic royally on whatever roads he takes to get out of DC Friday afternoon.

  2. Barrack the Merciful will part the traffic with a wave and a smile, allowing his subjects to have minimal delays as they praise him. (Its obvious I loathe him, isn’t. it?)

    • He may wave & smile, but the natives are not happy when he wants to take a drive to Capitol Hill during afternoon rush hour, or many other things that he does that cause even worse gridlock in the town. A couple weeks ago, I was driving to the college where I teach, and as I went past Andrews AFB, I saw AF1 fly overhead. I gave him the appropriate salute. I feel so sorry for those in the military who have to cater to his every whim, although I have a friend who was a SEAL for 10 years who still loves Obama and will vote for him again. Go figure!

        • I told him we wouldn’t be able to discuss politics, but he assured me that he would be very interested in what I had to say. I’d love to have a calm conversation with several of my friends who absolutely loved Obama and voted for him 4 years ago, just to see if they still feel the same way. I talked with a friend today who is so afraid he’ll get in for another 4 years. Neither of us are surprised by one thing the man has done while in office, because we did more digging into his background than did many of our friends. I can be sarcastic when I talk about BO & MO, but truly, I am scared for the life of this great country if he’s reelected.

          • I think we are all scared, PG but if we stick to facts and limit the sarcasm, maybe we can open enough eyes. From what I’ve seen of the people on this blog and others, we’re making some headway.

          • Oh, I hope you are right! I have another lib friend who is a world-class concert pianist. I’m having lunch with him this coming week….our conversation will be lively, but respectful. On facebook, I never discuss politics, but stick to posting interesting tidbits about music, but I read a LOT on the pages of friends who do have some great insights that I try to store in my brain for those rare talks with libs. Between colleagues and students, I am overwhelmed at times!

  3. One of the most disturbing things to me for the past 4 years is the fact that both of the interlopers have preyed on the young ones. MO has taken charge of the pre-teens, and BO has haunted HS and college campuses. Call it what you like – Marxism, socialism, fascism, communism – it is brainwashing/indoctrination on a scale not seen since the days of Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. Oddly enough, I honestly don’t believe BO worships any ideology – it’s all about HIM. I believe he just woke up one morning and decided that he was smarter, more charming, more ‘cool’ than all those old fogies in D.C. – and he was going to get himself elected – by hook or by crook. He studied the ‘preacher’ style of Jeremiah Wright and Jesse Jackson for a few years – and he was off and running. He staked his career on one ‘speech’ – the Dem Convention. Everyone fell for it – hook, line, and sinker – he had it made. The rest of his meteoric rise was fabricated out of whole cloth – a star was born!

    In their private moments, I can viosualize MO and BO doing fist bumps, laughing about the greatest con job in history. They both know he doesn’t give a hoot about this country or it’s people – or how to lead this nation – it was all a con – a gamble. He won – we lost! Too bad they don’t have the decency to take their ill-gotten gains and leave.

    • amen.

      (Im waiting for Obama’s HS/college supporters to go all “Red Guard” just before Nov… ‘vote for the Dear Leader!’)

  4. In a Spike Lee moment, this POtuS urges the GOP in Congress to “do the right thing”:

    President Obama on Thursday implored House Republicans to “do the right thing” and pass an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the middle class.

    Because the Senate passed an extension on Wednesday, “the only thing that is going to prevent the vast majority of Americans from not seeing a tax increase next year is if the House doesn’t act,” he said, speaking to reporters before the start of a cabinet meeting at the White House.

    “I would encourage the House of Representatives to do the right thing,” he added later.

    Obama said that he and members of his cabinet will spend the coming days, “mak[ing] sure the American people understand that we can provide them certainty now for next year that their taxes will not go up and they will be able to plan accordingly. Small businesses will be able to plan accordingly.

    Thursday’s cabinet meeting was the first Obama has hosted since Jan. 31 and the 18th of his presidency, according to logs kept by CBS News’s Mark Knoller. A readout released after that meeting said the discussion then focused on small businesses, as he elevated Karen Mills, the leader of the Small Business Administration, to his cabinet.

    What a moron! He really thinks a ONE YEAR extension will give small businesses a sense of stability because they can plan for ONE year? He still has NO clue! This one year crisis mode way of governing is part of the problem. Yet again, he demonstrates how he has absolutely no knowledge of or experience with small business.

    • Agree Snark, if we were talking about most anyone else. In this case, Barack cares about one single thing: Getting re-elected. He will say/do anything to achieve that. True, he has not a clue about strategic planning, paying rent (Who paid his while at Columbia? Hmmmm), making a payroll, etc All he wants is another 4 years so he can finish the job he started, the socializing of the US.

    • He’s working on the sympathy vote with that statement. Even when the poor little misquoted and misunderstood demagogue is playing on the emotions of the useful idiots, it’s always about him. In that one short quote he makes reference to himself three times…

      My upcoming birthday next week could be the last one I celebrate as President of the United States, but that’s not up to me — it’s up to you.”

  5. NO ONE is talking about his new executive order creating an AA education department. No one is even talking about the fact that it increases federal payroll and the burden for ALL taxpayers. It seems to be the educational equivalent of Affirmative Action.
    Why is it we must all be so politically correct we cannot even talk about a measure that is blatantly self serving in an attempt to recapture the AA vote? Why is this any different than was declared unconstitutional in “Separate but Equal”? Would take it to the bank that this administration was counting on JUST this level of civility about offending someone to let this executive order slide.

    • Agree totally, OneVets. I saw some chat here yesterday on the AA order. People like us have to keep it going. As the Who said “Won’t Get Fooled Again”

      • Yes, not only is this not being talked about by alphabets, they aren’t talking about the ICE agent who testified before congress yesterday. They had an illegal who had injured someone in his family. In the attempt to escape ICE, he injured an agent….they had 4 separate offenses this person committed, and yet the DOJ ordered them to release the perp because of the DREAM act.

        • Pianogirl88, I saw that too about the illegal alien being released just because he claimed to be a “dreamer.” Anybody else that would assault a family member, try to prevent them calling for help, try to escape arrest and assault a police officer in the process would be locked up and charged with felonies. It’s outrageous this guy is walking the streets because we have a POTUS pandering for votes.

  6. As far as I can tell, you might as well put this on the daily schedule:
    Obama Fund Raiser
    Obama Fund Rasier
    Obama Fund Rasier
    Obama Fund Rasier
    etc etc etc etc etc
    etc etc etc etc etc
    etc etc etc etc etc
