I seriously doubt if you'll see seven books filled with the screwups of Obama, like the books I have titled "George W. Bushisms".
Here is a good one. Remember when someone loaded the wrong speech into a teleprompter and Obama, instead of welcoming a European dignitary stated something to the effect, "... that he was pleased to be in Washington and wanted to thank President Obama for inviting him to the White House." And that is supposed to make me think that this guy is aware of this surroundings? A very good example of just how disconnected he is with what he is doing, and a good example that he is in way over his head.

That's why we have so many "Bushisms." Bush wasn't prepared.
The late night comedians and Vice President Joe Biden haven't mocked him for being an overly prepared boy scout, but for being overly dependent on his teleprompter. Probably because when he goes off teleprompter you get things like "57 states" and "I don't know all the facts, but the police acted stupidly".

You Birthers need to get on with your life. The issue of Obama's birth has been covered and it is settled that he is a U.S. citizen. Even assuming he was born before statehood, he would still be a citizen.
Please explain why the Hawaiian Department of Health refuses to certify his posted Certificate of Birth as valid?

That was a nice article about Dr. Inoue finding an old school photo of himself with "Barry" Obama. The only thing that surprised me was that Obama's note wasn't more personal or reflective back to his old school chum. But, perhaps, Obama didn't have much recollection of Inoue or his 3rd grade class.
Oh come on.

The guy admits Obama was invisible to him. He didn't remember him.

Only now after Obama becomes famous does he demand that a photo he stumbled upon be autographed.

Reminds me of those 4 or 5 Asian Punahou girls who tried to milk some publicity out of this by becoming Obama-Girls of some sort. Fact is none of those girls gave him the time of day when he was at Punahou and their parents would have disowned them if they brought him home a date.

You dumdums need to read Obama's book and see that he and the only other black guy at Punahou were treated worse than badly, they were totally and completely ignored.

No argument there. And it fully explains why Bush got us into this mess in the first place.
Absolutely no logic to what you are saying. You are saying that Bush got us into this mess because Obama is unable to speak contemporaneously and has to use a teleprompter. Must be something in your water over there.

Another sick s.o.b. wishing for the President's death. What is with you pieces of excrement? A lot of us may have disliked the former President, but we NEVER hoped for his death. You've got a problem and a big one. I don't know the last time I saw so many hateful people in one place.
There was a movie made called "Death of a President" which dramatized an assination of President Bush. At the time, there were a number of Bush detractors that went to view the film and praised it.

Seems both the Left and the Right have their own fair share of nutcases.

Obama chose Hawaii to rest up so he can continue his overthrow of the US government. He wants to make us a marxist state but he's using Fascist tactics.
The deathcare bill is unconstitutional and may spark a civil war or cause multiple states to declare their independence if Obama and his goons in congress try and ram it down our throats.

BTW Obama and his ugly racist wife didn't even attend church services Christmas eve or day. But then why would they? Obama is a muslim.

In fact, Barry did take the time to acknowledge his people yesterday by citing how sad he was that the African American who was Malcom X's harlem lawyer had died. He did have time for that and for his people.
But he hasn't yet said hello to any of the loser low life Hawaii folks. The same ones who ignored him and feared him growing up as a black man in a sea of Asians and Haole.
Hahahhahhahahaahahahahahahahah aaaaaaaa!
I have read your past comments and wonder what would motivate someone like you? I mean you go out of the way to disrespect people. I see again you have played the race card. Trying to racial profile people is soooo old. So Obama is here and to us we consider it a honor,just as long as he doesn't cause HUHU with his movements. Whats more disturbing are people like you(POI DOG) who are overjoyed to send us your racial rants. Why don't you go into your local low income area and donate some time teaching these people what a racist really is? Afterall thats your speciality and you are a expert.

If true, then the debates with McCain were more scripted than you or I were led to believe.

it doesn't matter what Obama says as long as he does his "Hope" pose with jaw jutting high, lips pursed and a long pause...it is so effective.

And yet, there are those in real life today who wish to pursue that exact option on our current president. But that doesn't seem to upset you much.

And as for people who praised it...

Actually, I have read all of Obama's books, but as I re-read the article, I see where the newspaper likely omitted some parts of the Obama's note with the use of "..." in between two sentences.

We've come a long way America, you are only a racist if you disagree with a person of color who is a liberal/socialist (in other words, not too good of an American). Feel free to disagree with any person of color who upholds the Constitution, etc. You're not a racist then, but a patriot.

Another year where his life story doesn't add up. None of the established facts make sense. It's time for the truth to be known about who this man is.

There were people then who wanted to pursue that exact option on our former president. And, why do you try to paint me as one who would support or agree with such a pursuit? Did I not say that there are nutcases on both the Left as well as the Right? Regardless of politics, I regard anyone that would assisinate an elected official a nutcase. I served 23 years in my nation's cloth to protect your right to disagree with my opinions, and to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution. Obama is a democratically-elected president. I may not agree with him, as is my right to do so, but that's a far jump from wanting him to be harmed. Frankly, your insinuation is quite offensive and if you were a decent person, you would take it back and apologize.

Hillary Clinton may have found the referenced movie despicable, and I'm glad she did. You can list a million names of people on the Left that found it despicable, but that doesn't negate the fact that many on the Left paid to see and praised its pretense. My only point to Canard is that both Left and Right camps have their own share of nutcases.

You seem to have no idea how the world works. There is something in economics called the "mulitplier effect". Whatever is done on the upper levels of the economy like gvt tends to expand as it filters through the economy. For example if gvt spends $1, by the time every affected by that $1 get theirs; there might me $3.25 in economic benefit. What is NOT expounded upon but is implied, as the economy feels better that "multiplier effect" expands to maybe $3.75 for example. MORE IMPORTANTLY it also contracts!!!! If the gvt(or anybody for that matter) doesn't spend the initial $1, then the economy shrinks by that $3.25 or $3.75 and I suspect because there is fear because people are highly in debt it is even higher. Bottom line, many of these things happening in the economy are NOT a result of Obama policies but of Bushs. Obama is merely reacting to the situation given. The economy was tanking WELL BEFORE Obama was in office. Are you that clueless? YOU ARE ASSUMING THERE IS A GOOD CHOICE. Obama is picking the least bad choice. Look at what the do nothing attitude got us. A greedy banking system that couldn't police itself properly. Bush's policy of allowing Fed to have lax money policies so people would be able to buy houses and forget the cost of the war. IT BACKFIRED. The housing collapse fell while he was in office and his policies were well in place. Being in office just 1 year, Obama's policies have not yet filtered in the economy. It takes about 1-2 years. I suppose your one of those who would shoot the "messenger". Bottom line, the laisse-faire attitude was tried and it FAILED due to to much greed.
