You posted four times under different names, trying to convince the world of your multiple personalities?

They're testing too many drugs at the mental ward in El Paso.

TOO BAD THERE ARE TWO REALITIES IN THE UNITED STATES, ONE CREATED BY THE MASS MEDIA THERE AND THE OTHER IS THE ONE REALITY PEOPLE LIVE EVERY DAY; TOTALLY DIFFERENT REALITIES.

THE MEDIA CREATED UNEMPLOYMENT: 9 PERCENT

THE FACTUAL AND REAL UNEMPLOYMENT: 25 PERCENT

Yes, this is an interesting concept isn't it? The Bushites want credit for destroying bin Laden but do not want credit for ruining our economy and ruining our standing in the world.
Funny how that works!
Obama boot licking Muslims and running down the US (someone let him know he is President) certainly has improved our numbers.

Yup. Exactly the opposite of what Obama (the other Marx Brother) is doing! He's taking the credit for something he had nothing to do with!

A good person wouldn't want to take credit for something like that. Sorry, its nothing to be proud of. It goes against USA values of everyone getting a fair trail, and the Christian 10 commandments that are basic and connects others from various religions.

I'm sure that's the polite excuse, but the reality is why embarrass yourself standing next to this fraud. If he's true to form he'll use the opportunity to score zingers to the nutjobs like "hello". Blame G.W. for every one of his failures and take credit for things he had nothing to do with. Bush has more right to be at this event then Barry ever will.
George Bush is a class act, Bo and Mo are totally classless. Wonder when was the first or last time that a U.S. President was snubbed, NOT invited to an international event such as the Royal Wedding. The President, any President is SUPPOSED to REPRESENT America, Americans. So as this played out Americans were snubbed because of Obama Bin Biden. WE were not invited. How many other Kings, Queens, Prime Ministers, Presidents were not invited?? And then to, think that Bush realized this New York event for exactly what it was and reminded of the Obama line "never let a good crisis go to waste". A re-election campaign appearance, a photo op, a "victory" dance for Obama. Bush simply did not want to lend legitimacy to what Obama was doing. Now he's coming back to El Paso, Ft Bliss for another campaign/victory rally. How crude, shameless can this fool be? Oh, never mind Silvestre Reyes will also be here. Never let a photo op go to waste.

That's because that honor goes to fannie, freddie, barney fwank, dodd and the democrats. The did a great job in sticking it to us also.
What school did you go to? It seems like you went to the same school bush went to; you know which one I am talking about, don't you? Well, it's the school that prides on, "No One Left Behind"! Learn how to spell you third class moron, it seems that you have had the same education as that 1.9 Grade Point Average (GPA)Bush moron that called himself a leader. What kind of sentence and spelling is, "The did a great job sticking it to us also". Fannie, freddie, barney and the others did not jack up the economy---The Bush administration did, "wake up and show up to class". Obama is simply trying to clean up another republican mess as Bill Clinton did. Do the world a favor and go back to 2nd grade gramar school and learn how to write and spell before you embarass yourself and your third class uneducated 1.9 GPA moron mentor.

NO SHIT, THE U.S.A. SHOULD DO THE SAME TO THAT COUNTRY AND ALL OTHERS THAT CALL ON US FOR AID. LET THEM KNOW THAT WE WERE NOT INVITED TO THE PARTY- SO WHY SHOULD WE HELP IN THE CLEANUP, RIGHT?
HEY, GIVE OBAMA CREDIT--OBAMA ACOOMPLISHED THE DESCRUCTION OF BIN LADEN WITHIN THE THE FIRST FEW YEARS OF HIS FIRST TERM AS PRESIDENT WHILE BUllSHit (BUSH) HAD 8 LONG YEARS OF NOTHING BUT FALACIES AND BULLSHIT QOUTES HE COULDN'T EVEN READ OFF THE TELEPROMPTER WITHOUT STUDERING---REMEMBER THE INFAMOUS QOUTED BANNER HE DISPLAYED ON THE AIR CRAFT CARRIER THAT READ, "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED"----WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ALL ABOUT? WHAT MISSION WAS HE PARADEING TO AND WHAT THE HELL DID HE ACCOMPLISH?
