<quoted text>Chris Matthews: Obama Likes Giving Speeches More Than He Likes Leading.
I was so shocked, I had to look it up.

Sure enough. Not only did he say that, but said this too.

"What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn't like dealing with other politicians -- that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn't particularly like the press....He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft," Matthews said.

"So what part does he like? He likes going on the road, campaigning, visiting businesses like he does every couple days somewhere in Ohio or somewhere," Matthews continued. "But what part does he like? He doesn't like lobbying for the bills he cares about. He doesn't like selling to the press. He doesn't like giving orders or giving somebody the power to give orders. He doesn't seem to like being an executive.”

geesh, you're a special kind of stupid aren't you.. Tell me did your parents have any children who weren't brain dead??

Last week, with a vote of 318 to 109, the House accepted the Senate’s amendments to HR 933. The Senate’s continuing resolution bill, formally known as the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013

Intended to prevent the federal government from shutting down on March 27 when the current funding expires, HR 933 may seem an unlikely target for food activists. However, the trouble is in section 735. Smuggled into HR 933, the provision now being called the “Monsanto Protection Act,” essentially deregulates genetically modified organisms (GMOs) by allowing the U.S. Department of Agriculture to override judicial rulings and grant temporary permits for conventional farmers to plant and grow genetically modified crops while pending review.

"Bush:‘I Miss Being Pampered’

By Ben Armbruster on Oct 20, 2010 at 2:12 pm

“I loved being your president,” George W. Bush said, speaking to an audience at a university fundraiser in Alabama earlier this month.“But frankly,” he added,“I’m having the time of my life not being your president.” Last night, Bush told a sold out crowd in Texas why he loved being president so much:

Bush said he misses certain aspects of the presidency.

“I miss being pampered; I miss Air Force One; I miss being commander in chief (of people),” he said...."

dude, let me assure you the Marine Corps regs do cover jewelry...and miscellaneous clothing....one thing it doesn't mention is a prohibition on umbrellas

Having served 6.5 yrs in the Corps, It is an unwritten rule that you do not use an umbrella, but it is not explicitly written

Nobody is blaming the Marines, just blaming Obama for asking them to bow and scrape at his feet as his personal servants.
Hold your own damn umbrella, Barack!
Think Obama thought the Marines would make for a good photo op.

The same lack of judgment flying Air Force One very low over New York City scaring people half to death for the photo.

Obama's approval rating, post trifecta 'scandals'

Carney said the White House had no involvement in the DOJ's AP seizures.

The President was not involved in a "very, very serious leak" involving national security.
