  1. Laughable that Obama’s team cancels the Kimmel appearance. Was Obama actually thinking that Kimmel’s audience would roar with laughter when the loser president comes out to do a five minute jokeathon about Republicans while the rest of the world is falling apart?? But Obama fans need not worry – Michelle will make up for this great loss, doubling her TV appearances.

  2. There must be a million liberals afraid of Hillary Clinton getting back in power. I’m very afraid of her myself just for the blog comments I have made and how I have responded to mail from them.

    I saw Halper on Megan Kelly last night, though, and got the impression that he portrayed her as the “kind” one and Bill as the meanie. I still think she will use the forthcoming grandchild to try to play on this.

    • I gotta wonder if the grandchild was planned timing as an excuse to not run. After all, if a grandchild were not expected, what excuse could she give, other than that no one loves her anymore, or that she’s just lousy.

      • The “kids” have been married how long?
        Seriously, does anyone doubt that this is a child “of convenience?”
        Another serious a surrogate involved?
        I have heard there are drug issues within this relationship.

  3. IRS: The dog ate the computers, then he ate the backup tapes, after that he upchucked some of them, but then the dog dragged them outside and now we can’t find them, however, we’re sure to find something if Congress gives us more money to play with.

    The LBGT E.O.: really?, people get fired from a job because of what they do in the privacy of their bedrooms – huh, who knew. Maybe if the LBGT (and everyone else, too ) people would keep silent about their sexual orientation no one would know what they do in the privacy of their bedrooms.

    Turkey’s Erdogan claims he no longer “talks” to MrObama, but I bet he still cashes the USA checks MrO sends to him.
    We hear that MrO and MrPutin “talk” on the phone, but no one ever tells us what they talk about. Why do I think that after the calls, the Russians roll on the floor, laughing away at the naive American President.
    IMO, Putin “talks” to MrObama because they have profiled him and know that he values “important” people or celebrities and use that to play him.

  4. I was surprised at the comments on the AP article about Obama putting pressure on Putin. Some very funny ones about invisible red lines and getting Michelle to go after him. He’s got no credibility in the international arena, they’re going to do whatever they want with impunity. It goes along with Erdogan not taking his phone calls. I’m sure they only consist of Obama saying me, my and I.

  5. Hillary is a sneak. By not declaring her candidacy, she does not have to answer questions. Meanwhile, she is raking in the dough on her $250K speeches. Is everyone nutz?

    • Miss Piggy for President? Another crooked election? Oh God, please save us from these commies. We had enough of misery with them.
