Will O'Reilly refer to her as a Slum Lord or Slum Lady?
Just hope O'Reilly catches her off guard on some issue and we watch the spin fly. Or watch her dance around it like an Irish jig. Obama's an expert at dancing around simple "yes" or "no" questions doing an Irish jig.

When O'Reilly asked Obama point blank if Panetta told him on the night of the Benghazi attack that it was, in fact, a terrorist attack, Obama danced like he invented every dance in the book. And never answered the question.

Show us the evidence the White House had of those "spontaneous demonstrations" Obama lied about for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

From Obama's own mouth:
2004:
"My opponent was born in Kenya."

Obama - "So what? I'm running for Illinois Senator, not the Presidency."

Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he began to claim in 2007 he was born in Hawaii?

I guess you think insurance companies never cancelled policies prior to 2010. I have news, Fletch. Insurance companies have been canceling policies & replacing them with more expensive policies for decades.
I don't recall them cancelling 5 million of them in concert, moron.

Why do you think the insurance companies cancelled 5 million policies overnight?

More lies from Dweeb.
Lots of people remember Obama at Columbia, you're just letting your schizophrenia talk again.
You post lies repeatedly, but they're still lies.
----------
""Columbia University proudly claims Obama as a 1983 graduate. The university magazine Columbia College Today profiled him as far back as 2005, after he was elected to the U.S. Senate.
Last year, the New York Times wrote about Phil Boerner, who roomed with the future president during his first year at Columbia. The article included excerpts from the Columbia student directory, showing Obama living during his junior year at 142 West 109th Street near Columbia’s campus in New York City, and during his senior year at 339 East 94th Street. Boerner recalled that Obama sometimes wrapped himself in a sleeping bag to keep warm in the chilly apartment they shared, and that some nights he would cook chicken curry for dinner.""
----------
How come nobody remembers Bush serving in the Texas ANG??
Why didn't he go for required physicals??
Why was his permission to fly taken away??
Why did he start two wars and lose them both??
Show us again that list of people who ever met Obama at Columbia.

And, why couldn't PBS find any of these people when they produced a documentary on Obama's life and had to skip the years he claimed to be at Columbia because they couldn't find a single person who ever met Obama at Columbia?(Which is what the President of Obama's supposed class says, and what the 400 people in the class Obama was supposedly is said when Fox News called them and asked them if they ever heard of Obama.)

How did a dropout from Occidental who nobody ever met at Columbia get admitted to Harvard?

1) Obama did sign an executive order to close Gitmo but Congress blocked it. He lived up to his promise.
2) I kept my doctor because I was smart enough to chose a plan that included him in their network. There was nothing in the ACA that determined networks.
3) The ACA had a claus that permitted insurance companies to continue offering any plan they had prior to the passage of the bill. If you lost your policy, it was not Obama's fault.
Obama can close Gitmo any time that he is willing to dispose of the trash, by any means necessary. Congress just doesn't want the trash brought back to the US where leftwing judges will turn the trash loose on Americans.

The founders intent is crystal clear on this.

Why is it that you communists hate the Constitution and our founders beliefs so much??

You try to rewrite the intent of our founders and th ewords of th eUS Constitution with stupid opinions. You will fail at this as you fail at all else, Nobraina.

----------

>>>"Separation of church and state" (sometimes "wall of separation between church and state") is a phrase used by Thomas Jefferson and others expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The phrase has since been repeatedly used by the Supreme Court of the United States.
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...." and Article VI specifies that "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States." The modern concept of a wholly secular government is sometimes credited to the writings of English philosopher John Locke, but the phrase "separation of church and state" in this context is generally traced to a January 1, 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson, addressed to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, and published in a Massachusetts newspaper.<<<

Wouldn't have any problem buying a house in the sticks where you live. In the big city - like Orlando, the resort capital of the world - the competition is a little tougher. Unlike you and most liberals, we have a budget and plan to stick to it.

But don't tell me. You'd offer more than a house is worth even if you can't afford it just because you're "entitled" to it. Right?

Or do you live in government housing already?

GOP’s secret idiot? If George P. Bush is its future, the party’s in trouble
Dubya's nephew is running for office, and is Rand Paul's expert on Hispanic voters. But his luck may be running out
George Prescott Bush, son of Jeb and grandson of George Herbert Walker, is running for Texas land commissioner. Next stop: the White House! As long as he manages to get himself elected land commissioner, that is. It may be tougher than he anticipated, which is to say it may actually require more than simply wanting the job and being named Bush.
Not many Texas voters really understand what the land commissioner does, making it the perfect office for someone with a lot of money and/or name recognition but no prior experience. Unfortunately, it is actually a pretty powerful state office, responsible for millions of acres of land, including mineral rights leasing, making it perhaps not the best office for a political neophyte with no prior government experience.
