  1. A day in the life of our President. Sleeps in, reads brief in bed. Ignores anything that sounds annoying or requires actual thinking.

    Goes to science event. Strolls around trying to act cool and like he knows more than anybody else.

    Attends fundraising event with brain impaired people who still love him. Delights in the fawning he receives and imagines the whole world is in love with him.

    Leaves early, smokes pot on Truman Balcony. Watches TV until 2 AM, while instructing to not be disturbed.

  2. From Drudge (someone please kill me if this happens):

    Michelle Obama is being urged by her husband’s true believers to move to California when she leaves the White House and to pursue the US Senate seat expected to be vacated by Dianne Feinstein in 2018.

    The oldest member of the Senate, Feinstein, 81, has strongly suggested this will be her last term, Richard Turley will report in on Thursday.

    The first couple haven’t said where they’ll go when Barack Obama leaves office in 26 months, but Los Angeles is the leading contender.

    “Barack could golf year-round, and Michelle could emerge from his shadow after 20 years and retake control of her own life,” a person familiar with their thinking told Orb.

    “Remember, Michelle is a Harvard-educated lawyer whose career was more robust than Barack’s was when they met.”

    California is the most appealing destination for the Obamas for several reasons. Hawaii is too remote, Illinois is a cesspool of political corruption, and New York is too dense with Clintons and Clinton acolytes.

    A Democratic party fund-raiser told me, “No one will complain about carpet-bagging because Hillary Clinton raised millions of dollars in California when she ran for the Senate in New York.”

    The Obamas have many friends in Los Angeles, dating back to Barack’s student days at Occidental College, when he first left Hawaii.

    As one cynic noted, “It’s a shoo-in. A ham sandwich could get elected on the Democratic line in California.”

    • Anywhere these two go, they won’t last a minute. Not after he let Ebola in here and keeps playing golf and going to fundraisers while ISIS cut off American heads. Worst, most dangerous so-called “president” we never had.

    • Obama has many friends? Before he was a phony “president”. No one ever said they knew him in college or anywhere? It always seems like he has no relatives that he’s close with, or friends.

    • They will never go away. For the rest of our lives, we will never be free of their torment. We can only comfort in the fact that even their “so called” friends despise them

      • When I was in college, I had dozens of friends who could comment on my behavior. Has an old Obama college friend ever appeared with some funny stories?

        It’s just so odd, it’s like nobody even remembered him. (I don’t doubt he was there, but he only present)

        • DWJ for the last several years with out any word or notice of past friends, family etc., I just assumed they had to pay off a lot of people to keep quiet.

      • Ugh, it’s bad enough we can’t get rid of the Clintons after 20 years. After January 2017, I never want to see or hear from Barry and Mooch again!

        • Sadly, I think we’ll never be rid of those two. They thrive on publicity and mingling with celebrities. Should Mooch become a carpet bagger I doubt it would be detrimental to her, especially in CA. Carpet bagging surely didn’t keep John McCain from being elected here in AZ.

          • I agree–even when out of office, they will shoulder their way in front of a camera regularly. I don’t get the part about M’s “robust career”–some make work job turfing poor people out of a hospital to another hospital. Even then they complained they could not pay the bills. Now–somehow–she alone is worth $11 million? This is all like a waking nightmare.

      • Right on. The Obola’s will never ride into the sunset. They will be a cancerous blight upon all of us, FOREVER! Worse yet, he will be parked in front of his faux presidential seal, just like before he got elected.

  3. I have been reading this blog for some time. (In fact, every day for months). Keith is a treasure (do you ever get to ask a question?)

    So, anyways, carry on. You guys are very funny.

  4. I live in Washington state, not very far from Canada. They are our brothers and sisters, and are so peaceful. But they will not shirk responsibility, we can count on them

      • I think our Prime Minister’s speech following the events of yesterday was very well done, a calm, measured yet resolute response to a crisis such as Canada has never experienced.

        • I agree. I was listening to CBC a lot yesterday. The mayor was very good, showing a leadership we in the US have never seen from Obama. The mayor flat out called the attack terrorism, which it obviously was. One of the attributes of a good leader is straight talk, no mincing words, no spin, no deception, no parsing. It will be at least another two years in the US before we see that quality of leadership here.

        • Harper is one of the few real leaders in the western world, and as Lee wrote somewhere else, my prayers and admiration go out to the Canadians.

    • Good. And yet CNN is calling the Ottawa attack a “Lone Wolf” attack (Just one, crazy “radicalized” person, nothing to worry about). No, it is a loosely coordinated attack by a person who had orders. America should definitely be paying attention.

  5. Yet another reason to let California form their own country. They can anoint the Mooch as queen, with Brown as Court Jester, as long as the rest of us don’t have to hear another peep from her or him ever again.

    By the way, nobody has answered my question about these early fundraisers. 4:45pm on a Thursday? Who attends these? If I were willing to pay money to attend a fundraiser, it would be a dinner at 7pm or so. Not at 4:45pm during the week.
