If you're born on the 4th day of any month, you should know your birthday isn't a week away on the 15th of the previous month.

For example, say your birthday is on October 5 and, on September 14, you say it's a week away.

Who wouldn't know their birthday couldn't possibly be one week away?

So what else might this president be "confused" about when it comes to his own life?

Too much confusion and misstatements for it to be coincidence.

It's almost like he keeps reinventing himself.

Obama’s Press Conference: The Smiling Face of a Police State
At Friday’s press conference, President Barack Obama resorted to outright lies in his defense of the massive and illegal surveillance programs exposed by former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden.
Obama made it clear that, as far as he was concerned, the problem was not that wholesale violations of the Constitution were being perpetrated by his government, but that these crimes had been made known and had alarmed the public. What was needed was a better job of public relations.
The press conference itself was thrown together to assuage popular anger and concern over the systematic violation of privacy rights. As Obama said, his aim was to “make the American people more comfortable” about government snooping on every aspect of their lives.
“America is not interested in spying on ordinary people,” Obama said, as if documents had never been published exposing the government’s seizure of records of all telephone calls placed in the United States, its dragnet of electronic communications around the world, its recording of license plates, and its photographing of letters.
This statement came one day after the New York Times reported that the NSA is “copying and then sifting through the contents of what is apparently most emails and other text-based communications that cross the border.” It followed last week’s exposure of the NSA’s XKeyscore program, which allows analysts to listen to phone calls and read emails at will without a warrant or authorization from higher-ups.
In a tone of seeming incomprehension, Obama said,“And a general impression has, I think, taken hold, not only among the American public but also around the world, that somehow we’re out there willy-nilly just sucking in information on everybody and doing what we please with it.”
But as everyone knows, that is precisely what the US government is doing.
In discussing the surveillance programs, Obama attempted to project a patient attitude toward public concerns.“It’s right to ask questions about surveillance,” he said. Only when the question of Snowden came up was there a flash of anger in his voice and a tightening in his face.“No, I don’t think Mr. Snowden was a patriot,” Obama said in response to a reporter’s question.
He went on to accuse the whistle-blower of “putting at risk our national security and some very vital ways that we are able to get intelligence that we need to secure the country.”
Saul Alinsky Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule....

In a tone of seeming incomprehension, Obama said,“And a general impression has, I think, taken hold, not only among the American public but also around the world, that somehow we’re out there willy-nilly just sucking in information on everybody and doing what we please with it.”

But as everyone knows, that is precisely what the US government is doing.

REVEALED: Fox News Bumped Sean Hannity For Pro-Homosexual Megyn Kelly
“By effectively joining the ‘gay’ activists’ crusade, major media outlets – and even ‘conservative’ Fox News — have contributed greatly to the growing pro-homosexual political correctness in U.S. culture.”
“Some leading Fox News’ hosts, such as Bill O’Reilly, Shepard Smith and Megyn Kelly, have emerged as on-air, pro-LGBT advocates – seemingly defying Fox’s core audience demographic of staunch Republican conservatives.”
“One wonders how much of Fox’s liberal ‘message drift’ stems from it’s staff simply losing touch with churchgoing Americans and that old-fashioned, Bible-believing morality that once was the backbone of conservatism.”

Birthers only want to see the long form certificate from the "most transparent administration ever"!

But Occupy Wall Street, when not raping women or defecating in police cars, want their student loans forgiving because their promised $400,000 a year salary on Virtual Basket Weaving, did not materialize.

See? Conservatives are responsible but Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

NAACP calls on Justice Dept., Secret Service to investigate rodeo clown
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/aug/...
Perhaps those treasonous scumbags should read the Constitution:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
What this means is the government just can't start investigating some rodeo clown just because he wore some mask of a president.
"I ain't got a dime. But, what I got is mine.
I ain't rich. But, Lord, I'm free."
Ask Tuffy Gessling if that is still true here.
The good news is liberals and blacks, both democrat and republican, are condemning the NAACP for making such a big issue out of this rodeo clown.

Thank goodness.

The tale of two conspiracy theories is the tale of the most polarized among us. The two statistics are based on a poll apiece. Neither is an exact measure. Yet, lots of liberals say take the "birther" poll on face value. Lots of conservatives say take the "truther" poll on face value. So let's listen to both sides.

The rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Barack Obama last weekend at the Missouri State Fair was a disappointing episode for the Show-Me State, a White House spokesman said Wednesday.
Deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said that he had no reaction to the clown from Obama. But Earnest, a native Missourian, indicated that he was disappointed with the attention the clown has brought to his state.
"I can tell you as a native Missourian, it's certainly not one of the finer moments for our state and not the way that I like to see our state mentioned in the news," Earnest said.

I know you'd love to believe that. But a general dissatisfaction about the direction of the country usually has more to do with those who hold the most power - and that's a sitting president.

Then there's the Democratic-controlled Senate for the past five years too.

And whatever the mainstream media writes about the high unemployment rate and how many Americans have give up looking, it better not write the truth about how ObamaCare contributes to this.

The media is wise to not report that

74% of small-business owners say they have or intend to reduce hours, or fire people, or simply not hire as a result of ObamaCare.

And, according to Investor's Business Daily, ObamaCare also gives incentives to employees to accept fewer hours: "Some 2.3 million workers might have their hours cut due to ObamaCare's employer mandates, even if there's no negative impact on total hours worked, a recent study from the University of California at Berkeley Labor Center estimated.

The other part of the equation involves more government benefits for those facing shorter hours. This will come starting in 2014 from ObamaCare health subsidies. Households working less may also get additional benefits, such as food stamps."

Obama's proud of beingknown as The Food Stamp President.

He wants 2 green cars in every driveway (although they are unaffordable) and a chicken purchased with Foodstamps in every pot and pot in every house.
