He also needs to brush his teeth more.

I don't judge what private "habits" people have as long as they do not impact his reasoning, his intellect and running the country though he should be respectful to his wife, children and colleagues if he smokes in their company.
Yet, the left is endorsing telling people what to eat and not eat. How much money did this country spend on anti tobacco ads, programs and we have an addicted president.

We pay for HIS healthcare. If he can't follow the doctrine, then he needs to pay MORE for his healthcare. Tell the chefs in the White House to stop cooking the food with fats so that Obama's cholestrol will go down and Malia and Sacha won't be fat.

Obama's mama and papa both died young. Obama's bad habits could lead him on the same path.

He's a skinny dude and should not have such high cholestrol. Apparently his dental hygiene ain't that good.

A couple of years ago most Americans were addicted to gasoline, but when prices went around $4. They cut consumption. There should be higher taxes on cigarettes.

Well, lets be realistic here. Removal of that anally embedded, SEIU engraved acorn is gonna net him a new one.

Which will yield even more crap from the radical crapist-in-chief fraudulent anti-American marxist. When he finally unloads, it's gonna make the definition of "tsunami" look like mere arabic sourced toppings in the cannibal pots of his beloved Kenyan homeland......aka one big freaking mess.

What say we put a billion dollar tax on every act of fraud and marxism.

With that, obama alone would yield us a quadruple trillion surplus. Hell, he could even pay back a billion or two to every one of his marxist, felonious, tax-cheat, commie-worshipping and anti-American mentors -- Marshall, Davis, Khalidi, Jones, Rezko, Ayers, Wright, Alinsky, Emmanuel, Axelrod, Jarret, Daley, the entire Chicago thugocracy, and hell, every corrupt lying anti-American democrat that ever stalked the planet -- and we'd still be better off than we are now. At least when he's ultimately impeached and deported and/or strung up, we'll return to American values and prosperity. I say we donate a portion of every front-row seat at the hanging to reducing the deifict. That'd be good.

The Washington Post often talks about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush, blah blah blah. Clever politics but not honest. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense.



So once more, here's a short civics lesson.


Budgets are proposed by the White House. They are voted into existence by Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. They controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases. For FY 2009, though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets.


And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

Now what is the unemployment in the United States?

Go to your Labor Department statistics and look at U6 for the latest honest figures on this subject.

Then to make the statistics more realistic just add 12 percent more to these figures and this will give the approximate number in the United States unemployed at this date. It's about the same percentage as 1930

Isn't being a socialist ideologue and smoking bad for you? Second hand exposure can be very harmful. I hope he doesn't do it in the white house.

Does it strike anybody that a Sunday office call to the doctor (???FOR A CHECK UP???, without a proper media drumroll, might, just might, be an indication that Barack Obama is hurting in some way?

Afterall, the noose around the neck of healthcare legislation is tightening. Obama, unaccustomed to rejection at any level, may be in the early stages of GAD. Unable to accept a reality of loss, Obama may be experiencing pseudo-symptoms of cardiovascular irregularity.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder can be a byproduct of histrionic personality disorder. Either disorder, at the extreme and operating in a weakened entity, can be fatal.

Now you people are critiquing his teeth and whether he should visit his doctor on Sunday? And second guessing his health issues?

Give it up, folks, and get back to how many teleprompters Obama did NOT use at the health summit.

You people are like rabid dogs (sorry dogs)!

If a Republican gets the nod in the next presidential election you best hope to hell that he memorizes everyone of his speeches and that not one shot of a teleprompter rears its ugly head. You do realize that sometimes the teleprompter is located IN the podium that they are speaking from right? And even your precious Fox news anchors use them. In case you didn't know they are located next to the cameras so while they are looking at you, they are reading their lines...just a quick FYI on how that all works

Of course just look at the pallor, weakness and frailty of the little kenyan, he looks like a kenyan aids poster boy sans the hut, cot and dirty sheet. His accelerated aids diagnosis coupled with the weight of his failed, dead presidency, and all the communists and terrorists worldwide he's let down with his failed policies ,will no doubt lead him to take his own life, such that it is...
