Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

A poor hot dog vender who was just on Greta a few minutes ago said he was hired to come in and sell hot dogs and happened to be near the violent mob tearing down the tent. He's a black man and said the violent mob turned on him, called him an Uncle Tom, threw racial slurs at him, called him the "n" word and destroyed his hot dog stand.
The crowd was yelling this isn't peace time, this isn't Martin Luther King time, we aren't going to go for this peace stuff, we're going to do it our way, etc., etc., etc.
Unions are what Obama lives and breathes for.
In 2008, the Big Daddy to the Big O was the SEIU.
FEC-required filings show SEIU's two PACs spent over $9 million dollars supporting Obama.
"I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU."
He loves his unions.

Even letterman thinks he's a lying sack of sht.
" DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST: Here's what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit,“Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt,” and last night he brings it up again.“Oh, no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt.” And Mitt said,“No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.”
Now, I don't care whether you're Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying. And so what we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.
RACHEL MADDOW: Because the "Let Detroit go bankrupt" headline you feel like was inappropriate?
LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he's the president of course he's right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that."
That's just hilarious. Letterman "discouraged" because Obama was wrong and was "taking liberties" lying his tail off about Romney.

Hilarious.

This whole fiasco called the Obama administration is gonna come full circle sooner than we think.

In the words of Hillary Clinton who knows first-hand the depths of deceit by this president..."Shame on you, Barack Obama! Shame on you!"

Was union membership required, or not?
You were warned right off the bat that if you didn't join the union and ever needed legal protection for any reason, you'd be on your own.

Because common sense took a vacation in the school system a long time ago and school administrators stopped growing a spine...and unions took their place.

Michigan Police Scratch Their Heads At Fox Contributor’s Post-Punch Media Tour

If Fox News contributor Steven Crowder wants justice after being assaulted during right-to-work protests in Michigan this week, he sure has a weird way of showing it. That’s the word from Michigan State Police, who are ready to investigate and prosecute the man who punched Crowder multiple times on camera Tuesday — if only Crowder would let them.

The video of Crowder taking those punches has gone viral, even as Crowder’s story about the circumstances has started to unravel. Regardless of exactly what happened leading up top the punches, however, there’s a potential crime caught on film and according to Michigan State Police, Crowder has so far shown no interest in having it investigated.

“There is video footage of him being assaulted. We don’t know who the suspect is, but we could do a several month investigation and find the suspect,” Inspector Gene Adamczyk, spokesperson for the state police, told TPM on Thursday.“But if Mr. Crowder is not going to prosecute, we have not gained anything, we’ve wasted resources.”

So far Crowder has not sought out police help after he was hit. Adamczyk pointed out he’s instead turned the video into a national conservative media tour.

“I saw Mr. Crowder’s interview on Sean Hannity and he wants to have an MMA-sanctioned fight with this individual,” he said. Crowder told Hannity that if the suspect doesn’t come forward for the MMA fight (which he said would be held for charity), Crowder would “press charges.”

Adamczyk did not sound impressed by the plan.

“You can’t leverage the law for personal gain,” he said.“Either you’re the victim, or you’re not. So if he’s the victim of an assault, and he wants to file a complaint, we will definitely investigate it.”

Meanwhile, media reports have poked holes in the original, edited video Crowder posted online after he was punched. The New York Times reported “a look at the video broadcast on the Sean Hannity show appears to show quite clearly that [Crowder] left out an important section of the footage when he put together his edit.”

The unedited footage shows “the man who punched Mr. Crowder being knocked to the ground seconds before and then getting up and taking a swing at the comedian,” the Times reported.

Adamczyk doesn’t understand why Crowder wouldn’t report the crime to the police and get the perpetrator prosecuted. He stressed that the MSP will not go forward with an investigation unless a crime is reported, and “there are all types of personal reasons” people sometimes don’t report a crime, he said.

“If somebody broke into your house, wouldn’t you immediately report it to the police? If someone assaulted you or your family member wouldn’t you report it immediately to the police?” Adamczyk said.“Well, why wouldn’t you, unless there’s a personal agenda there.

I temper all that I observe with a tab of reality.

* Pretty woman can be ugly.

not a President but a Prince - of Darkness.

* A Topix poster who mindlessly weaves religion, hedonism and naivete
with Liberal smugness and cynicism and yet still portrays herself as
a good suburban mom seeking the American Dream is minus direction
and a steering wheel. Like a runaway train with the engineer

I have never found a "virus-laden link" yet on Wikipedia.

You must have some really paranoid anti-virus software there, ladee.

You, not so much.........but comparing my far superior intelligence with your dearth thereof, is pretty stupid, come to think of it.
Holy smokes, we agree.
Let the freezing of Hades begin!!!!
Like so much else in Life, comparisons can be quite relative and conditional. For example, a stupid person can assume themselves to be far higher in intellect than others. That's why they are stupid.

An inchworm can assume themselves to be far, far superior in all regards to Mr. Robin. And this assumption holds true forever until Mr. Robin eats the inchworm.

Consider yourself just being eaten, inchworm.

The present leadership of the Republican Party has gone from making the case that government is the problem and the American people are the solution to making the case that Democratic controlled government is the problem and Republican controlled government is the solution.

By giving up on making the case that government is the problem and pivoting to “Democrats are the problem,” the Republican Party has failed the American people. Historically, when parties lost, their leadership went and hid for an appropriate amount of time under a rock after an acceptance of blame and a resignation.

The present Republican leaders in Washington, instead of hiding under a rock, have taken to standing on the rock and demanding conservatives self flagellate.

Let us not kid ourselves. The Republicans intend to strike a last minute deal to cave. They will. They are going blind in the bathroom over the idea of bifurcating tax cuts so Barack Obama can veto the tax cut for high income earners and let the rest slide through. It is, as usual, a too clever by half compromise from the GOP, which has spent more time out negotiating itself to the left than negotiating with the Democrats.

The compromise is no longer the issue. It will happen.

That's funny. My left leg has been acting up a bit lately. Only when I first stand up and put weight on it. But did have a slight limp a few days last week.

Not serious. Comes and goes. Not limping anymore.

How about a diagonal slice once in awhile? Hypocrisy? How? When? Where?

I could pop up right this moment and call you intelligent but with a total absence of affirming evidence over a thousand of your Topix posts, you could then call me a liar.

Is it any wonder the American people have come to the conclusion that government isn’t so bad when the party of small government keeps expanding it too? The leaders of the party are the message, not the words. And the message does not resonate because they do not practice what they preach.

Until the Republicans change their message, they will keep losing.
