Obama Insults Disabled People

Unbelievable.

The first appearance by a sitting president on “The Tonight Show” may well end up being the last.

President Obama, in his taping with Jay Leno Thursday afternoon, attempted to yuk it up with the funnyman, and ended up insulting the disabled.

Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.

He bowled a 129, the president said.

“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.

It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.

Obamas to Plant White House Vegetable Garden

WASHINGTON — On Friday, Michelle Obama will begin digging up a patch of White House lawn to plant a vegetable garden, the first since Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden in World War II. There will be no beets (the president doesn’t like them) but arugula will make the cut.

While the organic garden will provide food for the first family’s meals and formal dinners, its most important role, Mrs. Obama said, will be to educate children about healthful, locally grown fruit and vegetables at time when obesity has become a national concern.

You said it all. While nothing is being said, I do get the general feeling that people somehow know they have been duped. The enthusiasm for his "great leadership" has turned more into "what can he do for me" . At least that is the sense I get from Chicagoans.

Those kids in the Special Olympics have more grace and class in their little fingers than our egotistic president will ever have.

My company made a major contribution to the Nevada Special Olympics team last year at our Worldwide sales event in Las Vegas. IIRC, we started out the week with a $30K pledge and by the end of the event, it had swelled to around $130K, with about $20K grassroots from us 'little guys' wanting to do something a bit more for those young athletes. I don't think that there was a dry eye in the event when those athletes came on stage, with their innocence, joyfulness, enthusiasm and courage (YOU try standing in front of about 5K people from around the world and not shake in your boots).

My company made a major contribution to the Nevada Special Olympics team last year at our Worldwide sales event in Las Vegas. IIRC, we started out the week with a $30K pledge and by the end of the event, it had swelled to around $130K, with about $20K grassroots from us 'little guys' wanting to do something a bit more for those young athletes. I don't think that there was a dry eye in the event when those athletes came on stage, with their innocence, joyfulness, enthusiasm and courage (YOU try standing in front of about 5K people from around the world and not shake in your boots).

For the Zer0 to do this...if he didn't have low class he would have NO class at all. G*d help us survive him and his ship of fools...

That's beautiful!

Obama has tripled our spending. In less than 60 days.

WTF?

We Americans are still fundamentally sound, and won't let this classless clown ruin what our forefathers dreamed, and our dreams for our children.

We will claw our way out of this abyss and build better than before, without these Marxist kleptocrats whom we will defeat in 2010.

Good evening.

Remember when we had a real President? I sure do and his first name was Ron.

Anyway, the count down on Tim Geithner has started, I've been saying for weeks now that the guy was a clown and now the whole country knows.

By the way, there were several great articles out there today on how illegal "naked" short selling by speculators helped bankrupt Lehman Brothers.

Look for the market to drop some more tomorrow as financials continue to get hammered due to Geithners incompetance and Bernanke's printing money. The price of oil jumped today mainly due to the devaluation of the dollar, thanks to Bernanke.

Yep. And his last word on the flight recorder was "inshallah", IIRC. Which, we were assured, just meant he was praying for everyone's safety, or something.

A few points.
First of all, no sitting US President has ever appeared on an evening Comedy/variety television before.
Ask yourself why not.
This guy is supposed to be the leader of the free world, the person that everyone looks up to. The person who sets the tone.
Remember that bit about a "new politics" from Obama?
Here it is.
Was this a politically smart thing to say or do?

A few points.
First of all, no sitting US President has ever appeared on an evening Comedy/variety television before.
Ask yourself why not.
This guy is supposed to be the leader of the free world, the person that everyone looks up to. The person who sets the tone.
Remember that bit about a "new politics" from Obama?
Here it is.
Was this a politically smart thing to say or do?
You can debate how tasteless this remark was. . .maybe.
There are professional comedians who might get away with that sort of thing.
But there is no debate, that this kind of "comedy" is NOT appropriate coming from a sitting US president.


Perfect!

More to the point, she's a "shock jock" who has literally built a career out of pushing people's buttons.

We expect HER to be offensive, that's her schtick.

We don't expect the President of the USA to be so politically incorrect, and in fact we expect the exact opposite.

But again, this is the guy who thought the epitome of cool was to subtly extend his middle finger when speaking publically about his political opponent(s).

Remember when Obama went bowling in Pennsylvania last March.
He was teh suck.

Obama let everyone know he hadn't bowled since Jimmy Carter was president.

He shared a lane with Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey Jr., who endorsed him Friday, and local homemaker Roxanne Hart. As the game went on, several small children bowled with Obama as well.

Obama and Casey had a private game of basketball earlier in the day, but they saved their F-game for the public at the bowling lanes.

On his first warm-up ball, Casey rolled a gutter ball. Obama's first ball flew well off his hand but also ended up in the gutter. On his second try, he knocked down four pins.

About five lanes over, a young man in a T-shirt that said "Beer Hunter" fell on his backside while bowling and still recorded a strike.

The crowd of regulars pressed in to take pictures, get autographs and rib him on his poor skills.

Obama did improve, nearly getting a strike in one frame, and in the seventh, picking up a spare, giving him a score of 37. Casey had a score of 71 after getting a strike, and Hart, with one less frame, racked up a score of 82.

"I was terrible," Obama laughed as he shook hands with a crowd that had gathered outside the building once word spread he was there.

But I have to accept him as POTUS, despite fundraising and other electoral fraud.

One strange thing I've noticed is the resurgence of "retarded" as an acceptable word in comedy. Throughout most of the PC 90's it was forbidden. It's strange because you would think the lefty culture would back off using it. But I think standards have fallen - you can do anything for a laugh now - as long as it doesn't involve non-white racism.

The first I recall of "retarded" making a comeback was an SNL episode where during Weekend Update Tina Fey claimed Sean Penn was making a sequel to "I Am Sam" called "I Am Sam 2: Still 'tarded".

Rrrriiiight, and since the President of the United States has exactly the same moral stature as a pop band or a record company... ummm... sorry, what was the question?

I think m1150's question was, do empirically observed universal constraints of human language necessarily imply the existence of innate, genetically encoded constraints upon the seemingly limitless intrinsic computational plasticity of the human mind? Or does what appears to be a causal relationship between hypertension and coronary artery disease merely reflect the morphological manifestation of phenotype in the whalefish (Cetomimidae), which appears very different from the bignose, but is in fact merely a different gender of the same species.

It was either that, or something else that was equally sensible and relevant to the current discussion, I can't remember exactly.

Have a nice reunion and if he works for our military, please thank him for his service.

He does and I will tell him that. He is retired and still works on base doing something I am not sure of. He has been in Germany since 1978 and 15 years my senior. Now that mom is gone he is all I have left of her. However, I am sort of debating if I should tell him that I did not vote for Obama. I may let sleeping dogs lie.

If a company needs a federal bailout, shouldn't the govt postpone the tax debt until the company becomes profitable? It seems counter productive to give a company money and immediately recover it. There is probably an agreement like that in place...

Corporate taxes are a whole other ball of wax in total.

Taxes to a corporation are just another expense like the light bill or the cost of materials and labor. Taxes are recouped in the cost of the product.

Or does what appears to be a causal relationship between hypertension and coronary artery disease merely reflect the morphological manifestation of phenotype in the whalefish (Cetomimidae), which appears very different from the bignose, but is in fact merely a different gender of the same species.

Its probably because he doesn't. . .he's literally never run anything of substance before in his life, and the Presidency of the USA isn't exactly the easiest job in the world.

I'm with everyone in that it was stupid and insensitive and Bush would have gotten two new evil nicknames over something this idiotic, but aren't we the side that isn't supposed to be offended easily. I refuse to defend Obama, but can't we just say that the D-bags on the other side that usually take offense to this are hypocrites without having to be offended. I just hate how so many politicians can't say anything because of these gotcha comments. I remember as a kid (less than 10-15 years ago) when my brother and I used to call stupid or lame things either retarded or jewish. It was not meant as a slur at either group, one was just because it was the slang everyone was using, and the other was created as a slang by South Park without thinking of something Jewish as actually being lame and stupid. Am I alone on this one? I had to respond because of the joke below and how quickly the apology came and explanation of being silly, instead of just letting a funny joke go out there and trusting that no one would be hypersensitive enough to take offense. I miss not having to freak out about someone getting the vapors if they are offended.

A class of five-year old schoolchildren return to the classroom after playing in the playground during their break time.

The teacher says to the first child 'Hello Becky, what have you been doing this Playtime?'

Becky replies 'I have been playing in the sand box.'

'Very good,' says the teacher 'if you can spell 'sand' on the
blackboard, I will give you a cookie.'

Becky duly goes and writes 's a n d' on the blackboard.

'Very good,' says the teacher and gives Becky a cookie.

The teacher then says, 'Freddie, what have you been doing in your playtime?'

Freddie replies, 'Playing with Becky in the sand box.'

'Very good,' says the teacher, 'if you can spell 'box' on the blackboard, I will also give you a cookie.'

Freddie duly goes and writes 'b o x' on the blackboard.

'Very good,' says the teacher and gives Freddie a cookie.

Teacher then says, 'Hello Mohammed, have you been playing in the sand box with Becky and Freddie?'

'No,' replies Mohammed, 'I wanted to, but they would not let me. Every time I went near them they started throwing sand at me, calling me nasty names and asking to see under my jacket in case I had explosives.'

'Oh dear,' says the teacher, 'that sounds like blatant racial discrimination to me - I'll tell you what, if you can spell 'blatant racial discrimination' I will give you a cookie.'

I'm Jewish, and I think Jackson paid the price for his stupid comment, and I don't hold it against him anymore. It was just a stupid joke, and there is no evidence that he holds any anti-Semitic views.

I don't think there's any evidence that Obama holds "ablist" views.

On the other Hand, Trent Lott very soberly and with premeditation said Strom Thurmond should have been elected president in 1948. Now that's offensive.

BANGOR (NEWS CENTER) -- Some of the best high school hoops stars from across the state gathered at Husson College Saturday evening for the Maine McDonald's All-Star Basketball Banquet. A number of awards were handed out, including one for the first time.

The Spirit of the Game award was given to two all-stars, Patrick Thibodeau of Greely High School and Josh Titus from Edward Little High School. Both boys not only served as managers for their teams, but played in their teams' final home games of the season. Josh, who suffers from Autism, came into his game and scored 9 points. Patrick, a student with Downs Syndrome, started for the Rangers and hit two three pointers.

Lawyer vs Texan.....


A big-city California lawyer went duck hunting in rural Texas. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As he climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell into this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."

The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."

The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the US and if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."

The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we do things in Texas. We settle small disagreements like this with the Texas Three-Kick Rule."

The lawyer asked, "What is the Texas Three-Kick Rule?"

The farmer replied, "Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up."

The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the city feller. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees. His second kick nearly wiped the man's nose off his face. The barrister was flat on his belly when the farmer's third kick to a kidney nearly caused him to give up.

The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, you old coot! Now, it's my turn!"

The old farmer smiled and said, "No, I give up. You can have the duck!"

I will not, not, support any peace negotiations that do not allow those Palestinians born before 1948 to return.
....
I think it's a mistake and offensive to all Palestinians to accept Israel's right to exist. And I'm willing to bet that's probably how many Palestinians feel about it.

To acknowledge that Israel has a right to exist, is to acknowledge that Israel had a right to take Palestinian land; it had a right to impose a military regime on its Palestinian citizens from 1948 to 1967; it had a right to occupy the West Bank and Gaza; it had a right to impose a military regime on the Palestinians living there; it has a right to set up checkpoints; and so on. This is what acknowledging Israel's right to exist means for Palestinians, and that's why I hope it never happens.

George W Bush, with all his faults, was a class act as President. He, Dick Cheney and their White House team restored and projected to all, except the left wing Dems, a sense of competence to the most important job and office in the free world.
The Obama presidency, and his team, seems like a High School junior class where the teacher is out, and a poorly prepared substitute teacher is trying to run the unruly class. Unfortunately, Obama is the substitute teacher and the class clowns include Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chris Dodd, Barny Frank and a host of other comics.
There are too many comics on TV already, we don't need any more.
And we have too many comics in DC, even one is too many in today's world.

I don't think there's any evidence that Obama holds "ablist" views.

As I recall about Trent Lott '02, the people who started making noise were libertarian bloggers like Glenn Reynolds and Deroy Murdock - maybe Charles too (I wasn't a regular then). The Dem / MSM elite sat on their hands because they'd heard this stuff before, and in the days before bloggery they didn't think it mattered.

Nobody made excuses for Lott; in fact, he was unhorsed as Majority Leader before January '03.

How do I know who the trolls are?
Trolls tend to come in a number of different varieties, but the flagrant ones are really easy to spot. They're the ones who sign up for your community, instantly start contributing tin foil hat conspiracy theories, posts riddled with foul language and name-calling, or graphic photos. They expect to be banned, and they want to do as much damage as possible before a community moderator notices what they're doing and gets rid of them.

Unfortunately, there's a variety of troll that's a bit more intelligent. A really good internet troll rides the line of acceptable behavior, occasionally stepping over the line, but not severely or often enough to set off alarm bells with community moderators. This kind of troll sticks around for a while and is capable of fast-talking or debating the rules in such a way as to convince moderators to give them second and third chances. ( space jesus, etc )

Determining who the trolls are requires an objective look at contribution history. If you're running a message board, take a look at posting history, both short- and long-term. Did the suspected troll's posts contribute anything useful? Or were they primarily geared toward provoking negative reactions?

re: #709 Ojoe

A President, in office, appearing on a comedy show, means to me that he takes all of us as a joke.


My take is that he considers his office to be a joke.

A number of candidates have done it, but the reason no prior sitting US President has appeared on a comedy/variety show before is because it demeans the office. The President is supposed to be above that.

If the POTUS has anything to say he can hold a press conference whenever he likes and just say it. Ipso facto its news and will get news coverage on TV.

If he wants to chat up TV hosts, he can do that OFF the air.

If its any consolation, this is probably going to be the LAST time a sitting US President appears on a late nigh comedy/variety show. . .

Okay, almost nobody made excuses for Lott...

There are ways of being nice to centenarians without bringing up the Dixiecrat 1948 platform, which supported lynch "law" among other Jim Crow atrocities. Lott wasn't even a very good politician.

I didn't say he was either. I am just saying that he was being nice to an old man on his birthday. Very clumsy though.

I agree, that's why I said I wouldn't defend him because he does, but now anyone in public life has to watch because one stupid gay joke or slipping and calling something retarded forces you to appear on every medium and apologize, and go into some remedial sensitivity training. When did we as a nation become so damned thin-skinned.

You know what, I don't care when somebody makes a joke at my expense, because I can speak up and defend myself if I want or need to.

But poking fun at a group of individuals who have a disability of this nature, who could not or would not be able to defend themselves against such nastiness, is beyond the pale.

re: #790 m1150

Umm... how does meeting with terror masters and dictators qualify as being not anti-Semitic? His agenda remains the same. It's still an anti-Israel agenda. He, like Jimmy Carter, go around the world badmouthing Israel at every turn, and then profess that they're nonpartisan all while meeting with terrorists who seek Israel's destruction.

His very act of meeting with Hizbullah was further legitimizing the terrorist organization and did nothing to improve the chances that Israel would ever see its soldiers (Goldwasser and Regev) alive.

Besides, Jackson doesn't do anything that doesn't result in a benefit to Jackson.

Thanks for the heads up. I can't take credit for it. I'm only 29, and I hear my dad/uncles/grandfather say the same thing around the dinner table, where any joke is fair game and since everyone knows everyone else, we all know that any joke no matter how far is taken on comedic purposes and not because of some bigotry. To those on this site who cut both ways (and I see it regularly) I applaud you for your consistency, and agree that there is a certain level of decency and decorum that should be maintained, especially by public officials. I just get angry when any idiot on the left, can take offense on behalf of any group just to try to take down a political enemy because they can't win on the merits, or as I call it: "James Carville's career."

It is a very fine line to walk. I can't speak for anyone else on LGF but I must admit that I do find myself on this forum checking my political language to protect both myself and those whom I might offend. This is part of what makes civil public discourse. Would I be so guarded with my best, most trusted friends? Absolutely not!

Part of the backlash you received, I believe, is that conservatives are stereotyped as racist and insensitive and are held to extremely rigid standards (PC) by liberals. So when a very liberal, very public person such as Obama commits such an obvious gaffe, there is a tendency to want to burn him for it.

Again, you seem thoughtful and despite being 29 you should not feel intimidated to post. Though, it is a tough room! I've been scorched a few times too.

I just meant that with enough stupid incidents like tonights quip about the special olympics and the associated blowback, he's going to be more careful about what he lets slip and what kind of appearances he makes.

My point is that if it were someone else (besides Obama) I would hope that someone would give that person the benefit of the doubt and not pile on and call it "bigotry" which is starting to become one of those all-encompassing buzz words that lost all meaning when the left hijacked and stretched the meaning of the word to include everything but the original meaning like the words "racism" or "rape". You know, I'm not sure I fully remember my original point. I think in a roundabout way I just didn't want this to be about gotcha politics and I wanted some consistency in the way it's handed out. This is mostly futility aimed at the media because like many before have said Obama and Bush don't get the same shake from the media, so it's pointless anyway.

Obama has been made out to be some intellect and he just isn't. He is petty and impresses himself with what he thinks are clever remarks which he doesn't think out well. Someone made a comment about "when did we get "thin-skinned". It was when leftists sought to discredit conservatives by over-blowing every error, oddly usually based on the fact that conservatives are supposed to have principles. They never discuss the corollary that they, the leftists, don't have principles. Here of course, is an issue which they have claimed to support, the dignity of the disabled. But the clever school-boy remark bursts out of Obama, partially because he's not so smart after all, partly because he has grown lax because the press always covers for him.

#832 lawhawk

The fact that someone has peacenik views on the Middle East doesn't make him an antisemite. It might make him wrong, but not bigoted.

Jesse Jackson is hardly a George Galloway who's actively cheering for the terrorists.

There's peacenik views on the ME, and then there's working hand in hand with the very terrorists who seek Israel's destruction and think that the "jewish lobby" has too much power over US policy in the region.

A peacenik view, with which I am intimately familiar having written my master's thesis on diplomacy in the ME peace process and how it could be achievable if the right personalities were involved to overcome institutional resistence to peace on both Israel and Palestinian sides, would work to support the peace supporters on both sides while denouncing the terrorists at every turn. Jackson does not do that. He meets with Hizbullah - a group dedicated to Israel's destruction on religious and political ideological grounds. They cannot and will not change their view because it would be unsupported from a religious standpoint - jihad.

Yet, Jackson has no problem speaking out against Israel, but refrains from talking about the incessant terrorism perpetrated by Palestinians and other terrorists. That silence is deafening because it further supports the terrorists' positions against Israel.

I'm not gonna watch Leno. First of all, the comment that we're all talking about has about as much chance of being aired as Janet Jackson's uncensored nipple in the late-night rebroadcast of the Super Bowl. Second, I cannot look at our racist shithead president for more than twenty or thirty seconds without feeling physically ill. Third, I really just have never understood why anyone would want to watch Jay Leno. I think I've enjoyed a segment or two of his show now and then over the years, but.. when Letterman is on at the same time? I'll take Letterman.

No it's juvenile and stupid, but I was a kid who meant no harm, If someone ever got me on tape, and I tried to run for office at some point, I might be forced to retire because at 15 or so, I called things I didn't like retarded. Granted my best friend's brother was high-functioning autistic through high school and college and I'd have never let anyone make fun of him, but calling things retarded and directly making fun of mentally challenged people aren't in the same stadium.

Very nice way of putting it. re: #854 pingjockey

Ah. You have more faith than I. The man had no business in the senate let alone where he is now. How the people of this country elected someone so totally unqualified to be prez is still totally mind blowing.


While I don't disagree, this is a BIG part of the problem.

Obama is, bluntly, not politically mature enough to be POTUS.

He's never run anything of consequence in his entire life, nor held executive office, nor has he even been on the national stage long enough to know how to behave there. Further, his opportunity to mature that way during his campaign was severely stunted by the media's repugnant water-carrying. All the lessons he *should* have learned before he took office, he didn't.

So now we're stuck with a political juvenile as leader of the free world.

Again, maybe its wishful thinking, but I think he will (eventually) get his act together. The question is whether or not he'll be able to do it before he enacts his agenda or expends all his political capital.

INTERVIEW WITH HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY JANET NAPOLITANO

Janet Napolitano, 51, is President Obama's new Homeland Security Secretary. She spoke with SPIEGEL about immigration, the continued threat of terrorism and the changing tone in Washington.

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.

That Moby M1150 posted a link to National Council of Churches in defense of Jesse Jackson.

You might remember that group:

Largest coalition of leftist religious denominations in the United States
Has long record of financial support for Communist regimes


At its founding in 1950, the New York City-based National Council of Churches (NCC) absorbed its predecessor, the communist front-group known as the Federal Council of Churches. At one time an overt supporter of the communist cause, NCC has today recast itself as a leading representative of the "religious Left." It claims a membership of 35 Protestant, Anglican and Orthodox Christian denominations, and some 50 million members in over 140,000 congregations. Among the more notable member denominations are the Presbyterian Church USA, the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church, the United Methodist Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the American Baptist Churches in the USA.

In the 1950s and 1960s, under the rubric of charity, NCC provided financial assistance to the communist regimes in Yugoslavia and Poland, funneling money to both through its relief agency, the Church World Service. In the 1970s, working with its Geneva-based parent organization, the World Council of Churches (WCC), NCC earmarked money for Soviet-sponsored guerrilla incursions - which it characterized as "liberation movements" - into Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique, and Angola.

Obama has appointed utopians, marxists, socialists, asshatists, and is being advised by terrorists. What should we expect?

We're gonna' end up defending ourselves if this crap keeps up. Releasing Gitmo illegal combatants in the US, making kissy sounds to Iran and Syria. Before you know it we're gonna' have "cultural exchange" programs with them. We get a troop wearing matching semtex skivvies and a they'll have moonbat mimes.

Well Obama is half part of a historically discriminated race so he gets a pass because of all the terrible stuff that has happened to half of his relatives (well at least the ones in America -- come to think of it -- uh nevermind).

If Bush had said this on the other hand then it would have been outrageous because he and his family have always been the ones who have had the power in this country.

On the local news, WABC, the anchorman just said that The One made a 'faux pas', and the White House has apologized.

Here is the article.

The upside to this is how the comment distracts from BHO's purpose on Leno. Recall he wanted to sell his economic plan. Instead, hopefully, the focus will be on the gaff. Think positive.

President Barack Obama went cross-country to deliver his economic message -- but his attempt at a joke about the Special Olympics during the first appearance by a sitting president on "The Tonight Show" could open up controversy on a whole new front.

I just had a horrible thought:

If you asked a Special Needs if they would want to deliberately cause harm to another person they would most likely say no.

If you asked a "Progressive" (such as a regular at the Daily Kos or the Huffington Post) if they would want to deliberately cause harm to another person they would most likely say yes and then tear off on a hate-filled rant as to why.

It would then appear that a Special Needs child has a better understanding of basic ethics than any so-called Progressive.

Sad when this is the second stupidest thing he said today...

I finally figured out what Obama meant today when he compared AIG to sucide bombers. Now it makes perfect sense to me. The AIG business has blown up in the face of the Obamamaniacs plan to restructure our economy. He equates this with the senseless act of suicide bomber terrorism. That's why the man needs a teleprompter. His thought process is so twisted he actually articulates what he truly means.

I agree with you on that wholeheartedly. I know I don't have all the answers, and at my age, I'm finally getting to the point where I'm smart enough to know I don't know shit. I'm always willing to be persuaded, though not a flip-flopper. I've ate crow and personally had to apologize to Charles for a comment that was viewed as out of line, and in retrospect, was given the manner of speech I used, it probably sounded like I was a d-bag creationist troll because I said a post was boring, when in fact doing the good work of keeping people aware of creationism is not bells, whistles and dinner parties. It's slogging through endless amounts of pseudo-religious, pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo that rarely is coherent, but must be understood to be refuted.

Sometimes I want to say things that I can't say here. So I don't say them here. Doesn't mean I can't say it. Just means I can't say it here. In a fine, public place, you have to exercise restraint. That being said, people fling it pretty good here!

Second, I cannot look at our racist shithead president for more than twenty or thirty seconds without feeling physically ill. Third, I really just have never understood why anyone would want to watch Jay Leno. I think I've enjoyed a segment or two of his show now and then over the years, but.. when Letterman is on at the same time? I'll take Letterman. Or, for that matter, whatever's on the History Channel. Tonight's episode of Modern Marvels, for example, is about salt.

With a high score of 129 bowling he's doing better with that than any other aspect of his presidency thus far. Is there a way to put gutter bumpers on the rest of the presidency? I'm tired of all his other policies going straight down the gutter, 129 looks good right now.

My bad. I didn't realize I was right on top of it on another tab.

Jake Tapper report with video prior to President Hussien's appearance on Leno. This made the front slot on the ABC News website.

What is the context of this?

That depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is.

So far I haven't seen ANY context.

I guarantee you there are a lot of plumbers making $250 K and if the O spent one day working as hard as them, he'd be ashamed of himself, if that is possible.

And when you need a plumber, you can understand why they get the money, and are willing to pay. Especially if it is a drain problem.

Plumbers perform a useful service and honestly earn their money.
On the other hand, 0bama is flushing the country down the sewer.

Well sure, if you are the one tending it. I doubt the O's will come within smelling distance.

I see The Man of Genius has struck again. DVDs that don't work, over charged buttons and the President thanking himself... one has to wonder at what point do we just throw out the White House china and go with Dixie paper plates.

Can't do that....paper plates are bad for the environment!

Oh! Aside from the photo op, of course.

Not really. That link points to Tapper's official story and not the blog.

No one likes jesse...black people don't like him. White people don't like him. He runs a racist protection racket scam on corporations....so the left likes him.

People who lead, so to speak, with the color of their skin are offensive by that very thing alone.

A person who sees the entire world - every single facet of it - through the prism of race or skin color, is IMO a racist themselves. They are the ones who are constantly interjecting race into conversation where there's no need or reason ...to the point that it becomes jarring and offensive.

I am sure you won't be disappointed. It's a safe bet that Obama will do or say something blazingly stupid each and every day.

Did you read the link? What do you mean no context. Context is everywhere.

White House security might make her advising him at every turn impractical.

Secret Service can't come in after the bedroom door is closed...can it? ;~)

Buddy of mine always said the President's closest advisor is the person who sleeps next to him all night.
