At least Hollywood is still behind the president -- or, anyway, is mostly keeping quiet about its opposition because, as old-line Hollywood liberal Ed Asner reports, they "don't want to feel anti-black."
So it's come to this -- while George W. Bush was savaged for "bombing brown people," now if you're against bombing brown people you're "anti-black."
As I said, if I were George W. Bush or Romney, I'd be sorely tempted to laugh, because OBAMA'S CHICKENS ARE COMING HOME TO ROOST.
Obama was elected after he and his party sowed distrust of U.S. military endeavors, mocked "intelligence estimates" about "weapons of mass destruction," and suggested that anything the United States did in the region was probably somehow a scheme to benefit oil companies.
Now Obama and his administration are shocked to find that when they go on about intelligence estimates and weapons of mass destruction, people don't take them seriously.
Likewise, Obama has repeatedly shown his disdain for Congress and his willingness to act without congressional approval in all sorts of areas, from ObamaCare implementation to gun control.
So it's not surprising that members of Congress seem to be a bit ... distant now that Obama suddenly wants them to bail him out of his unfortunate "red line" remark.
But I'd bet that Bush and Romney aren't actually laughing. That's because they're both serious men who understand international politics and who care for the future of the country. They no doubt understand that, as fun as it is to watch a political opponent twist in the wind due to his own ineptitude, the price will ultimately be paid not by Obama, but by the people of America.
Our diplomacy is a joke, OUR PRESIDENT IS A LAUGHING STOCK, our enemies are emboldened (50 Shades of Jimmy Carter), and we've still got over three years of this to go. Nothing funny there at all, alas.
.
Talk about wanting to laugh out loud. When Obama addressed the nation as "my fellow Americans" and pontificated about "being united" in his lone wolf and lame attempt to show Assad who was boss, there had to be a collective eye roll across the nation.

He divided us by distinguishing us as either "friends" or "enemies" early on and purposefully created invisible wars between the classes, gender and races just to get elected and demonized Republicans and, therefore, their constituents for the past five years and expects us - his "fellow Americans" - to suddenly rally behind him when he finds himself in a corner?

Like I said, major eye roll.

Here's an example of other "ugly Americans" like you:

The crowning of Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, as Miss America should have been, to paraphrase her platform, a celebration of diversity through cultural competency. But in the hours after her victory, Twitter became a frank demonstration of American incompetence in matters relating to both ethnicity and geography.

“Well they just picked a Muslim for Miss America. That must’ve made Obama happy. Maybe he had a vote,” said one user.

“I am literally soo mad right now a ARAB won.#MissAmerica” wrote another

It should go without saying that Davuluri, a Syracuse native of Indian descent, is neither Muslim nor an Arab. But according to Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes, the American-born Davuluri doesn’t “represent American values,” unlike the blonde-haired, blue-eyed contestant from Kansas, Theresa Vail.

This is not to say that Vail isn’t an unprecedented contestant in her own right: she’s spent five years in the Kansas Army National Guard and is double-majoring in chemistry and Chinese at Kansas State University. But, according to Starnes on Facebook, she lost because “the liberal Miss America judges were not interested in a gun-toting, deer-hunting, military veteran.”

Terrorist shooter on the loose at Washington Navy Shipyard.

Obama does not have all the facts but promises to label it "workplace violence". So he can claim there was no terrorist attack under his watch only under Bush, Liberals to blindly fall for it!

Liberals promise to defend terrorist right to exercise his religion to kill.

Voters think America’s a better place since Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous “I have a dream” speech 50 years ago this week, but nearly nine-out-of-10 say race relations have gotten worse or remained about the same since the election of the nation’s first black president.
Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Likely U.S. Voters think race relations in this country are better today than they were 50 years ago. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 13% think those relations are worse today, while just as many (15%) say race relations are about the same.
http://thehill.com/polls/236627-hill-poll-maj...
no mention of Obama making things worse. but when you use a right wing site as a source...because we all know the real reason race relations might be worse: right wing hate directed at a black president.
your second....before the election. and how did that turn out?
great way to make a 'point'.

It is becoming apparent that Christians, and American Christians, in particular, will soon become the most hunted people on the face of the earth. DHS is lining itself up against Christians. The Army is lining up against Christians. Obama has always been against Christians. As a usurper of the Supreme Commander of Our military, Obama has encouraged/permitted the United States military to participate in the persecution of Christians...

You're a real trip. Perhaps it may have occurred to Jack Ryan that bringing his wife to sex clubs and forcing her to participate in orgies with strangers; may have been discovered by the press one day! It was his wife who put the screws to him, not President Obama; and all is fair game in politics, tough luck.
Well that part made the leaks and accusations against an opponent who would have kicked his ass in the election a little juicier, didn't it?

Good thing the liberal media never shows any bias and the projected winner wasn't a fellow liberal.

Because, as we all know, the liberal media is well-known for investigating all the facts and would never act too hastily to jump on a potential scandal if it eliminated the competition of their "chosen" fellow liberal.

And, of course, they never conveniently lose their journalistic voice if a scandal might harm their fellow "chosen" in any way.

Is that an argument? What's your point? We have a mulatto Muslim President, don't we? Besides, aren't beauty contests sexist, humiliating and exploitative, especially to ugly liberal hags?

Panera Bread founder and CEO Ron Shaich usually doesn’t do his own shopping. But Saturday, the millionaire found himself looking for cheap groceries in Dorchester, Mass., a historically-poor neighborhood in Boston, he wrote in a LinkedIn post documenting a week of living on the equivalent of food stamps.

“[W]hat began as mild sense of uneasiness ahead of the shopping trip, graduated to outright worry once I began shopping,” he wrote.“After just a few minutes walking the aisles of the store, the concern set in that I may not be able to sustain myself for the next seven days. Thirty one dollars and fifty cents, the weekly budget, didn’t feel so insignificant until I actually started filling – and editing – what was ultimately a barren shopping cart.”

As part of Hunger Action Month, Shaich said he is eating on $4.50 a day, the average daily benefit per person provided by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Policy makers, including 26 members of Congress, have embraced the SNAP challenge as a way to demonstrate the difficulty of living with food insecurity.

Panera Bread has been experimenting with pay-what-you-can cafes in economically-difficult cities such as St. Louis and Detroit. The cafes have no set prices, only suggested donations. The company is testing the concept in other markets with a pay-what-you-can item: turkey chili in a bread bowl.
