Florida? Hmmm, I thought JayZ and gang had declared a boycott of that state. And even Jesse Jackson had declared it an apartheid state. What is his Arrogance thinking with this schedule?

How did Florida get so lucky?

The choice was probably Florida or a day with Mooch.

By now you should be comfortable about how often I can misunderstand. :) That said, I agree re. JayZ. I still have problems with that whole Cuba thing –

Jay-Z hasn’t cancelled his concert in Florida yet ? So maybe the boycott begins AFTER that ? ;)

BO at the WH; Hey, Truong, welcome to the US. We have to get right down to business because I have a plane to catch. Sure, sure, just tell Valerie what you want. Nice seein’ ya’.
BO at the JPA; Say, you folks have a lot of boats here. So, where’s my speech gonna be?
BO at the podium of the JPA; Look, it’s been a long day and I have a plane to catch. Michelle planned a dinner with some folks and no way am I going to be late for that.
Anyway, did you all hear my two speeches yesterday? Good. Then I won’t have to repeat them. Nice seeing all you folks.
BO at the Iftar dinner: Man, what a day. So, what’s new?

How did I miss the Iftar dinner? Of course, I think your assessment is on target.

I suppose he can make the Florida trip ok with Jesse and JayZ.

After some thought, it occured to them that there’s a lot of rich people who live in Florida and they might need their money for one thing or another.

I read about Barrys “phony scandals” speech. The most phony event recently must be his and his thugs made up stories and lies about George Zimmerman. The Zimmerman witch hunt. The aftermath of that trial ( and what went on before and during it as well ) is appalling to any decent person. To use an aquitted man like this, to haunt him, threaten him, well, what kind of a man is this president ? What kind of people does he associate with ?
And now Zimmerman ( who probably would like to be a cop ) has done it again. He did what any good cop would have done, saved a family in a road accident. That is the kind of a guy he is . He wants to help. Oh, and the new little prince will be called George. Not Trayvon or Barrack or any other strange, odd name.

A couple George Zimmerman helped rescue after their family after their SUV flipped over on a Florida highway canceled a news conference Wednesday, citing the possibility of ‘blowback’ against them.

Mark and Dana Gerstle had planned to talk about the assistance they received from Zimmerman, who was recently acquitted of charges in the death of teenager Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that they changed their minds, deciding they didn’t want to be in the spotlight. After discussing the situation with family and friends, O’Mara said they realized that being connected to Zimmerman right now could be toxic.

O’Mara brushed aside suggestions Wednesday that his client’s actions in helping save a family from a car wreck were somehow staged, noting that multiple government agencies and witnesses have backed up the family’s account.

“The same people who refuse to accept the jury’s verdict, just want to be angry, just want to hate George Zimmerman, are still going to,” O’Mara said. “Even if we had a videotape of the accident, they would still say it was made up. So you can’t really respond to people who just don’t want to listen to the truth.”

Mandy, I am stunned. Being connected with the rescuer is “toxic” ? The White ( ? ) House has unleashed dark forces to cause fear and uncertainty.

Mandy Manners July 25, 2013 at 12:43 pm

I wonder if FCMABBHO and Meerkat would have prefered the Gerstles die instead of seeing Zimmerman help rescue them.

Swedishlady, you ask what kind of man is this president. He is a ruthless, spineless coward – a political assasin. His entire career was built on mowing down anyone who got in his way beginning with the Chicago politician who gave him his start, Alice Palmer. He ended up double-crossing her and stole her seat in the state senate. The next target was Jack Ryan and the U.S. Senate. Obama released sealed records from Ryan’s messy divorce and the rest is history. He now sits in the White House shooting down his targets with the enthusiam of a duck hunter sitting in a duck blind.

Star, I have not your sense of nuances in English. So if “thug” sounds manly I will never use it again describing this person. He isn´t that at all, on the contrary….

No doubt lots of his Muslim Brotherhood pals (i.e., shariah czar Mohamed Magid) will be in attendance. Not so sure Huma will be there again this year. She’s busy standing by her pervert.

An iftar dinner….for the Muslim Bros ? Funny I dont recall an Easter dinner for Christians ( I dont think the Easter Bunny qualifies as a celebrant of the ressurrection of Christ…).
Nothing to see here, move along.
