In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Mooch will be sure he doesn’t eat any fried twinkies and will double sure that he doesn’t buy a Romney supporter a beer. What bus ride that will be!

  2. Fourth straight day on the campaign trail. Not sure who’s receiving the Presidential Daily Briefings in his absence. Did he take the outsourced black buses with him?

      1. The reporter asked her. And she said it was not out of the realm of possibility but that it is not on her current agenda. That is not the same as saying she is going to run, just that she won’t say never. Big difference.

  3. Might be a good idea for BO and MO to do some house-hunting before they return to the People’s House. Heard there is some construction going on next to MOOchelle’s garden – and some bales of hay being off-loaded. It’s not official yet but it look like there’s going to be a new ‘filly’ arriving soon.

    1. Silly Girly1! The O’s don’t have to worry about house hunting because some wealthy Dem crony will just give them a lovely mansion. You know, kind of like how Weiner, who has been out of work for over a year now, can move into a $3.3 million Park Avenue apartment. How interesting that their family income can be cut by more than half, they can add a baby to the mix, and move into a 2,120 square foot, four bedroom, 3.5 bathroom luxurious apartment. This is so NOT like the downsizing I see going on all around me with families who have suffered huge losses of income in this Obummer economy:

      1. Obama’s buy a house? With their own money? Now, now, you know full well that George Soro’s, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Hollywood, etc will all kick in to buy them the “house of their dreams”.

  4. Even the usually slow morningpapers over here are catching on the word of war between Romney and Obama. “Obama, worried and desperate” was a headline I read this morning. Usually readers are just fed happy Obama stories lifted from NYT and other ObamaPravda.
    I read a story on Weasel Zippers today that might give Obama some headache. Is he in for the Kerry treatment ? A US special forces group is ready to launch a media campaign that attacks Obama for taking credit for the OBL killing and blames him for harmful leaks. “Mr President, you did not kill OBL. America did. The work that the American military has done killed OBL. You did not.” I say poetic justice, his words come back to haunt him.

      1. Agree, Just2old. The “gutsy call” propaganda was so false and over the top that it is just about time that he is “swift boated”.

        1. Right and I think it was Joe “they’ll put you back in chains” Biden who coined the “gutsy call” phrase. The blind leading the blind!

      2. sadly… I can already see the “main-stream media” questioning the patriotism & duty of that special forces group…

        (even as the elite NYC-DC “media” has no clue & no respect for today’s US Military…)

        1. Well LS, after my 21+ years in the “canoe club” and your years in same, we can only hope that the truth will again win the day.

          1. Amen. Im always blown away by the sheer IGNORANCE the elite, upper-class “main-stream media” has when it comes to reporting of the US Military… they have NO CLUE when it comes to ‘units, ranks, equipment etc.’…

            (…BTW; being a former Seaman I’d still like to know how a 100,000+ton tanker hit a DDG in the Persian Gulf ?)

  7. With Joe on the campaign trail and Moch and Barry in Iowa, just who is watching their kids, the White House and the Country? Probably for the best.

  8. A very busy month for POTUS. Nine fundraisers and 16 campaign events so far, and the month is just at the half-way point. The man is working so hard, putting in so much time, and making such an effort to improve things. But remember, he didn’t build this presidency, others did it for him. Okay, maybe in this case that is true.

  9. Just noticed Jay hasn’t had a WH press briefing in quite some time. Guess because the President is on a leave of absence to campaign, and it’s August in WDC so everyone is on vacation. Perhaps Valerie Jarrett can step in and Soledad O’Brien can fill in for Jay.

  10. Let’s face it, Obama and Biden are a joke and a bad one at that…..One looking for Socialism and the Hypocrite Biden shouting about Wall Street putting people in “chains”?…Both a couple of low-rent poseurs along with their wives “Mooshelle” and “DR” Jo……..
