  1. Two comments:

    1) Why are Obama’s handlers even concerned with the idea of gun control and immigration as “legacy” items for him? The economy and Obamacare will be his legacy, one of disaster.

    2) Curl’s lifestyle article shows the empire may finally have some cracks. This type criticism would have been unheard of during the first term of Dear Leader.

    • Exactly. He’ll have a legacy, but a “legacy” is not necessarily a good thing. We will have 8 years of his legacy, but it will take decades to erase.

    • The WhiteHouse is obsessed with creating some kind of legacy for MrObama because that’s what he wants. He thought Obamacare would be his signature legislation, but it has become a white elephant of deficit and impending disaster. The stimulus, supposed to bring the economy back from an imagined brink only paid off for the big money, big unions and losing green energy companies.

      He should run from any mention of a legacy and hope to fade into history as the first “Black” president.

      • Obamacare is a big part of his ‘legacy’ whether he wants it or not. I won’t use the albatross metaphor from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, but you make a good alternative metaphor: Obamacare is a white elephant tied around his neck.

  2. Will Obama send out a statement on Margaret Thatcher’s passing and will he send a US rep to attend funeral, or will he just pretend she never existed like Chris Kyle?

    • I am sure he will because he surely wants to appear “connected” to that magnificent lady. I believe that even her then enemies now realize her importance. And Barry ? So far below her that it isn´t even possible to compare the two.

    • I wish he’d send some genuine conservative mourners to represent the United States, but he’ll probably send Joey the Clown who will make some asinine joke.

  3. I see the Conn parents were also on 60 Minutes–I just couldn’t…these outings are so staged–no offense to them, I get sick thinking of what they are going through, but this whole thing is so creepy somehow.
