    • Good for him! He won’t allow himself to be exploited. I see Obama is pushing all of the Democratic buttons, including, LOL, a “wind technician”.

  1. You would think that the WH would know that “Crownsvill” has an “E” on the end of the name, since the small town is just up the road about 50 miles from DC, next to Annapolis.

    The are going to exploit any gun tragedy they can this evening.

    Unless the 100 year old voter was in a room filled with other really old people, I can’t imagine that this person wasn’t taken to the front of the line, or given a place to sit while waiting to vote. Even here in the Peoples Republic of Maryland, if you walk in with a cane or other visual infirmity, you are escorted to the front of the line.

  2. Wonder if the multi-billionaire Tim Cook will open the Apple spigot of cash reserves and redistribute it to the Obama loyalists, or perhaps Tim will leave several thousand of applications in the chambers for the scant few manufacturing jobs Apple will soon create.

  3. thanks Keith. I wasn’t planning to watch anyway, but this confirms it for me. first responder to a Sikh temple shooting? great. I guess that was the closest Obama could come to a Muslim without actually inviting John Brennan. hardy har har.

    (btw, do we know yet if that is an internet rumor or true?)

    the only reason I can see for tuning in at all is to see if anybody yells “You lie!” at him this year. one can only hope.

  4. Holy crap. That’s a lot of “guests”–her box must be huge. I heard that the most recent Medal of Honor recipient was invited and declined. Hehe.

  5. Oh a self identified victim — Amanda McMillan of Jackson, Mississippi; Pay discrimination victim.

    What about the family? The illegal welfare Auntie and the illegal triple DUI Uncle? Surely it would be good to know how intimate the first family is with the plight of America’s illegal immigrants.

    Lipstick on a pig.
