  1. I wonder if Obama has ever had a ‘working lunch’ with anyone over the last seven years. Has he ever invited a member of Congress to break bread with him? I doubt it.

    My guess is he goes upstairs, plays video games or watches ESPN, smokes half a pack of cigarettes (or worse), calls his Choomer pals to see ‘whassup’, and takes an afternoon nap.

    Can hardly wait to read the anonymous ‘tell all’ books from WH staff that are sure to come.

  2. The Preezy- “Joe, we got her on the ropes now. Get your people together and we can finish her off, once and for all.”
    Joe- “What about Bernie? He’s gotta finish it so that the Repubs don’t call it a set-up.”
    Preezy- “Bernie is going to retire. He really doesn’t want to be here in the OvalOffice. Pick that woman who claimed to be an American Indian as a running mate then all of America will cheer. Do it, I tell you.”
    Joe- “Eh, OK. Do I get to keep the campaign money that’s left over when I don’t win?”
    Preezy – Arrrrggghhh.

  3. “Participates in interviews with YouTube Creators”? What’s next, a retrospective evening of Mickie Mouse cartoons?

    We know he doesn’t read his PDBs (ValJar tells us Obama already knows what’s in them), so it’s another day of silliness, goofing off, lazy hours spent while the world burns under his watch.

  4. Barack Obama’s Navy. Sorry guys. Comment and summary of NYT from commenter at AOS

    The Navys new top officer is launching several initiatives targeting the problem of sexual assault in the ranks.

    Ray Mabus stands fast despite criticism of women serving in all Navy, Marine jobs

    Navy personnel chief confident about female submariners

    THOSE are top 3 stories in the Navy Times today..NOT about Code of Conduct in the face of the enemy, NOT about faulty navigation, NOT about giving up the ship,

    And THAT is all you need to know about today’s Military

  5. Baltic dry index is all but Zero right now. That means nothing much is shipping.

    New crash very near and it will be on Obummers watch!

    Sorry for the people that will be hurt, but this will be the magic Negro’s leg ass see.
    Total Failure.

    • Have been reading that not much is shipping out or into major ports. Also Walmart store closures — that’s what happens when you think a $15/wage is a good gift to the left. Also Walmart imports a lot from China and there will be that impact as well.

      Pretty much the world economy and Obama’s dumb economic policy and the Fed have created a big mess that is beginning to unfold.

  6. Ted Cruz has a problem. He forgot about a big loan from Goldman-Sachs.

    The dishonesty here is that Cruz has pretended to stand against the bankers. But Cruz is bought and paid for and would be in the pocket of the New York Banks no different than Hillary, Bush, or the rest of them who take money from this crowd. You do not forget to report a loan from Goldman Sachs when your wife is a managing director. Come on. How stupid do we have to be to entertain this excuse?

    • I don’t know. I thought he had an adequate explanation last night–it was reported on one public filing, but missed on a different public filing. This doesn’t compare to Hillary “misplacing” $6 Billion from the State Dept budget under her tenure there, or all the money laundering through her foundation.

  7. Change of Topic:
    If Cruz is fair game for eligibility determination, why is Rubio’s eligibility not being questioned?
    Excerpt from The Daily Mail:
    Cruz was born in Canada in 1970 to an American woman, but held dual citizenship between the two countries for decades. Trump has been mocking the Texas senator’s claim that he has ‘natural-born’ U.S. citizenship and challenging him to prove it in court – contributing to the erasing of a once-significant Cruz lead in Iowa.

    When asked by reporters about Cruz’s citizenship last week, Rubio said, ‘I don’t think that’s an issue.’
    Rubio was born in Miami in 1971, but his parents were born in Cuba and came to the U.S. in 1956. They did not obtain U.S. citizenship until 1975.
    Critics say Rubio is therefore ineligible to run for president under Article 2 of the Constitution, which declares ‘no person except a natural born citizen … shall be eligible to the Office of President.’

      • I actually agree with that–goose sauce meet gander sauce. Let’s move on, I say. I think personally that it means on US soil or the equivalent and not the citizenship of the mom thing or the straw man of last nite–citizenship of both parents. But this has now morphed to anything goes…so it’s a waste of time. Rubio was born on US soil…citizenship of parents not relevant. He is old school.

      • True Grace.
        Obama is a fraud re. his SSN.

        Cruz held dual citizenship but renounced his Canadian citizenship as he knew that the Constitution does not allow anyone that is running for the presidency to be a citizen of another country.

  8. Excerpt from interesting article in Harvard Law Review:
    “No doubt informed by this longstanding tradition, just three years after the drafting of the Constitution, the First Congress established that children born abroad to U.S. citizens were U.S. citizens at birth, and explicitly recognized that such children were “natural born Citizens.” The Naturalization Act of 17908×
    8. Ch. 3, 1 Stat. 103 (repealed 1795).
    provided that “the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States . . . .”9×
    9. Id. at 104 (emphasis omitted).
    The actions and understandings of the First Congress are particularly persuasive because so many of the Framers of the Constitution were also members of the First Congress. That is particularly true in this instance, as eight of the eleven members of the committee that proposed the natural born eligibility requirement to the Convention served in the First Congress and none objected to a definition of “natural born Citizen” that included persons born abroad to citizen parents.”

    Note the last sentence in the second paragraph above. That is why I question Rubio’s eligibility. My previous comment included this statement:
    “Rubio was born in Miami in 1971, but his parents were born in Cuba and came to the U.S. in 1956. They did not obtain U.S. citizenship until 1975.”
    Rubio’s parents were not citizens at the time of his birth.

  9. It’s Friday and I am sick of these topics (sorry, feeling grouchy), so how about something completely different. Fishing from home, anyone? Do you ever think maybe this creativity thing has gone too far?
