Obama doesn't care about the law,The Constitution,Congress,the best interest of our country or the will of the people. Obama illegally forced ObamaKare on us even though eighty two percent of the population were against it and for several weeks now he has been saying that he is going to force amnesty on us even though most citizens are against it,and even though he knows that he can't get enough support from Congress to push it through.

That is a terrible thing to say, but it figures, coming from a racist hater like you, Frank.
You've been consistent over the years. Consistently ugly and hateful.
But then, you've attacked decorated war heroes.
You're lower than whaleshit, and you know where that is.
It is extremely terrible that the occupant of The White House hates our country and wants to destroy The Constitution,our way of life and the dreams of our founders. It is also terrible that the occupant of the White House has so much disregard and disrespect or the citizens of our country that he would force his left wing policies and far left agenda on us. The House of Representatives represents all of us,it is ashamed that Obama treats them so poorly.

The only reason Obama's name is on that list is that he has played over a hundred rounds since he has been occupying The White House. How many rounds of golf did Obama play before he was elected to the Senate?

When two-star Major General Harold Greene, the highest-ranking officer killed in combat since Vietnam, was laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday, neither the President nor the Vice President were present.The nominal Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama was playing a round at the Vineyard Golf Club with Valerie Jarrett’s cousin, Cyrus Walker, the World Bank president and former President of Dartmouth College Jim Kim, and former lobbyist and ambassador Ron Kirk.The clownish Joe Biden was in the middle of the third day of a week long vacation in the Hamptons, which followed a week in Wyoming, which was preceded by a week at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.Was this noticed? Yes, it was:Colonel Morris Davis was the chief prosecutor at Guantanamo under George Bush, a 25-year Air Force veteran, and an Assistant Professor at Harvard. His tweet referenced the two most recent high-ranking military deaths, that of Major General John Dillard, Jr. who was shot down and killed in 1970 in Vietnam, and Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.While America has lost a two-star General who has served in a war the president has waged questionably, the Commander-in-Chief could not show the common decency to honor him with his presence. Instead, President Obama showed it was more important to play yet another round with well-connected elites, as the nation grieves and families suffer. The disconnect could not be more profound.
UM... ABOUT 30 "HEROES" ARE BURIED AT ARLINGTON EVERY DAY... THAT'S A LOT OF FUNERALS... ARE YOU SUGGESTING THE PRESIDENT ATTEND ALL OF THEM, AS A MATTER OF "COMMON DECENCY?" OR... ARE YOU SUGGESTING GENERAL HOWARD IS SOMEHOW MORE IMPORTANT THAN PRIVATE JOAN? IF I NAMED MY KID "HAROLD" I'D JUST ASSUME NOBODY WOULD COME TO THE SERVICE WHEN HE WAS SHOT BY ONE OF HIS OWN MEN... NAH.. YOU'RE NOT SUGGESTING EITHER ONE, ARE YOU? YOU'RE JUST TRYING TO STIR UP SOME SHIT LIKE THE OTHER PENTECOSTAL CLOWNS IN HERE... I'M TELLIN' YOU FLAT OUT... IT'S A BAD IDEA....

The “no strategy” comment from Barack Obama has turned into a nightmare from the White House. Unlike the “leading from behind” quip, which was given to Ryan Lizza by an anonymous staffer, this statement came straight from Obama himself. Despite the efforts of Josh Earnest to spin it afterward, the comment has reverberated, in part because it confirms what many people already think of Obama’s handling of foreign policy. It’s a Kinsleyan gaffe, as Aaron Blake writes today at the Washington Post:
As with all gaffes, the worst ones are the ones that confirm people’s pre-existing suspicions or fit into an easy narrative. That’s why “47 percent” stung Mitt Romney so much, and its why “don’t have a strategy” hurts Obama today.
Polls have increasingly shown that Americans view Obama as a weak commander in chief without much direction or heft t0 his foreign policy. The latest is a Pew Research Center survey, released shortly before Obama’s errant statement Thursday, that showed 54 percent of Americans say he’s “not tough enough” when it comes to foreign policy and national security.
Just 36 percent said Obama has shown about the right amount of toughness. Mind you, this is after he launched airstrikes in Iraq.
It was an odd press conference at the very best, but to have a press conference to say we don’t have a strategy was really shocking given the severity of the threat. That’s what’s so concerning to me,” Rogers (R-Mich.) told Wolf Blitzer on CNN.…
Blizter said White House aides have clarified Obama’s remarks to say the president meant a strategy specifically targeting ISIL in Syria, before asking Rogers if he was “happy with that.”
“Well, I’m not OK with it, and it just confirmed what we’ve been talking about really for almost two years: There has been no real strategy,” the congressman said.“I mean this just tells you how far we have to go and I’m just not sure the severity of the problem has really sunk in to the administration just yet. Clearly, that’s what that told me today.”
Rogers said Obama “absolutely” should confer with defense officials about options, but said that should’ve happened earlier.
“We are so far along into this, this is not like this happened last week or a few days ago,” Rogers said.“This is so frustrating that with all of this going on, with certainly all of the intelligence showing us the problems that are there, the president says,‘I want a strategy how to deal with this by the end of the week.’ It just tells you that, apparently, we’re not taking this seriously for some length of time. This should already be done.”
Why is it you asshats think our military can solve every problem??

Why do you want us to pick sides in a Muslim Civil War??

The Muslims must fight it out.

Remember, IS didn't threaten us until we attacked them.

We stick our stupid noses into other people's business too often, look at what happened in the case of Iraq.

Bush's shining new 'democracy' turned out to be a shiite led Gov't allied with Iran, as ruthless as Saddam against enemies, driving the Sunni's into IS arms.

We've done enough damage in Iraq already, invading twice. How'd that work out??

And you're stupid enough to think we should get involved.
