  1. U.S. seeking allies. What is O going to do if he finds that everyone has gone on vacation and unable to make agreements? sarc
    Before they seek, they need to get their act together.
    Stick to one line. Instead of several different people giving different comments as each day goes by. I have not heard a new one today.
    RE: Comments of threat, no threat, somewhat of a threat, World on Fire, Cancer, etc…

  2. Earthquakes in Napa, Surging volcano threatens to melt a big chunk of the ice cap in Iceland, and Obama thinks WE are the climate issue.

    Go back to the golf course where you can play on manicured grass that was engineered using petro chemicals and ding golf balls into the ocean to harm the enivronment and burn immense fuel on AF1 shuttling your daughter back and forth to DC.

    Hypocrite

    B

    • Not to mention, flying all over the country in an effort to look busy, when you’re just giving the same, tired old speech over and over again to sycophants and idiots.

      Yesterday was probably a real shock to him; to not hear the roar of applause every time he finished a sentence and gave his “rock star stare” to the audience.

  3. I know there is a lot to keep up with. Common Core has been pushed on the back burner. Does anyone know exactly how many Governor’s are against Common Core.

  4. I am sure this Cushing man served heroically in the Civil War, but since the Civil War was mentioned, plenty of “white” people died for the freedom of the slaves among other issues involved–and this doesn’t seem to come up much.

  5. At least a third of the contracts the administration inked to help implement Obamacare are over budget

    While we are on the subj–I would like to say I scream at the TV when that Beckel, plumped on the Five all self-satisfied, says repeatedly that Obamacare must be okay now–no biggie–bec it hasn’t been heard from or about in three months. No one can get insurance now! Not until the enrollment period. I wish that man would ONCE do research instead of throwing out these stupid statements. We will be hearing about it when the increase notices go out, people try to get or change plans, and those who have not died tyring to spend down their deductible speak up once again.

  6. Joe Public (at least here in the UK) prevented Hague and his posh boy idiotic friends from arming the insurgents in Syria. WE could see who the real villains of the peace were, yet our so-called “Intelligence Services” got it spectacularly wrong, hence the shift in policy from the USA now. Just shows what dangerous times we live in when our own leaders can’t use common-sense for a change……
