  1. He rambled he was bound by the Constitution yesterday.
    For goodness gracious, I don’t care about his color.
    If I got to walk around making the worst choices in life, no one would
    want to hear the excuse of my actions when I start using color.
    I could say, well I am white and tan depending on the time of the year.
    Therefore I can do what ever I want to do.
    People would tell me I don’t care if you are red with sunburn, stop making stupid choies.

  2. Good article by Lowry — calling it like it is. Surprised to find it in Politico. Did not bother with comments, as they generally run with the left. Not useful.

    We are a country nearly in crisis on every front, with an adolescent partying, chewing gum, adolescent hanging out in the WH with dictators and progressive ideologues who scorn America — stirring up things for his own amusement.

    At Red State the other day Cg. Marsha Blackburn wrote a piece about the behavior of the Democrats while the immigration bill was being worked out. No concern with executive overreach, the abuse of law and congress,or the legalities of amnesty and immigration. Reminded me of the Dems during the Walker crisis in Wisconsin.

    At this point Barack Obama reminds me of so many of those “mad”child kings playing with toy soldiers, and in the downtime, gleefully pulling wings off of flies — sounds of Tom Hulce laughing in Amadeus.

  3. I have a question on this immigration grab, whatever it will be. He said in that dopey newser that he would love to work with Congress because change would be more “lasting.” Would an EO on immigration not be binding, or be temporary, or God forbid, not comprehensive? Or was he just throwing words out there as usual?

  4. I noticed that nowadays only democrats have the huge homes on
    MV. I am always hearing about those despicable republicans owning big homes.
    I am beginning to think they all sold theirs to the dems.
    Also he aways says he would just love to work with congress, but
    he can’t seem to find the time. He seems to want to meet them only when they have gone home for the vacations.
