how about the insult to Palin with the ignorant pit bull joke... that joke was many things but funny was not one of them. Im not a Palin fan, but what he said should embarrass his supporters. it was offensive to women, to dog lovers, to Dems, etc. PLUS, it made zero sense!!! did Biden write that for him?
How about him calling Bush un-patriotic for piling up debt when he has piled up more than any prez put together!
And then there is the beer summit after he ran his mouth before he knew the facts, my favorite is he is going to attack waste, fraud and abuse. Remember " LINE BY LINE, ITEM BY ITEM " can you say GSA, or SOLINDRA, SECRET SERVICE, Turns out it is one h-ll of a service. I tell you what, forget all the countries problems let's just go play golf?!?!?

Your statement was "President Obama's constant stream of personal attacks on his opponents..." I didn't realize Palin is running for a damn thing except the microphone.

Regardless, he didn't mention Palin in the joke. The "even Sarah Palin is getting back in the news [pause] which reminds me, "pitbull joke." And the focus of the joke: diffusing the Reich-wing hate-mongers about him eating the dog when he was six.

BTW: I can't help it if you didn't get it. I don;t know anyone who was offended by it except Reich-wingers.

TRY AGAIN for a single instance for a 'constant stream.'

"How about him calling Bush un-patriotic for piling up debt when he has piled up more than any prez put together!"

I couldn't find that quote expect out of a campaign speech Candidate Obama made back in 2008. I agree with it. It was damn un-patriotic to LIE the country into an illegal and immoral war and not pay for it. It was damned unpatriotic to destroy the surpluses and blow up the national debt with his massive taxes.

BTW: Your statement was "President Obama's constant stream of personal attacks on his opponents..." A4 year old campaign statement hardly meets that stand...especially since Dubya wasn't his opponent.

FAILED AGAIN!!!!! Try again.

BTW: 80+% of the increase in the debt since President Obam took office is a direct results of Dubya's policies.

What opponent did he go after? Stating the FACT that the cops had acted studiedly, he didn't insult anyone.

Waste fraud and abuse has been attacked. Only an ignoramus would not know that FACT. Latest:107 charged in Medicare fraud busts in 7 cities. http://www.businessweek.com/ap/2012-05/D9UH8V...

Regardless, how is that some constant stream of insults directed at his opponents?

You too LOSE.

He is constantly insulting congress. Isn't Harry in his political party. NO BUDGET SUBMITTED IN THREE YEARS. NONE!!!! Last I checked it's the law to submit a budget.

There was not insult even directed at the Supreme Court let alone against an opponent.

"Obama was near the end of his speech when he turned his attention to the court's decision last week in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The ruling overturned two precedents and left corporations free to use their profits to support or oppose political candidates.

"WITH ALL DUE DEFERENCE TO SEPARATION OF POWERS, last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that, I believe, will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections," Obama said." http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...

That statement had been proven absolutely TRUE!

BTW: Telling the truth is not necessarily insulting anyone.

Where the hell is that 'constant stream of personal attacks?'

obama's budgets? OMG they weren't serious and his own Senate voted 99-0 to kill it. He's a joke and you're a bigger joke for attempting to defend him. Which ever way the political winds blow, there is obama blowing right along with them. There is not a caring bone in that skinny body, except for himself that is.

Why didnt you use this ans an example of "President Obama's constant stream of personal attacks on his opponents...

“They’ve [Obama] decided to run, at least for the moment, a campaign that is very personal,” Mr. Stevens said, pointing to a recent ad that mentions that Mr. Romney has a Swiss bank account.-:Mitt Romney's top media strategist

no, I think I made a clear and smart point, which you proved. how about you try again. so I guess Obama can blame Bush for another 4 years, correct? here is an idea, lets keep electing empty suits who hide their pasts and they can all blame Bush until we become Greece!!!!! thats sounds great!!!!!!!!
