We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The turning point came that glorious week in the spring when, in the space of a few days, he released his long-form birth certificate, humiliated Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and assassinated Osama bin Laden. The effortlessness of that political triptych — three linked masterpieces demonstrating his total command over intellectual argument, low comedy, and the spectacle of political violence — was so overwhelmingly impressive that it made political geniuses of the recent past like Reagan and Clintonseem ham-fisted. Formed in the fire of other people's wars, other people's financial crises, Obama stepped out of Bush's shadow that week, almost three years after taking over the presidency.
To tell the truth, I still can't tell whether it's tongue-in-cheek or written by a guy with a serious man-crush. Perhaps our readers can help me out.
...well, on further thought, reading this 'graph convinces me that the author is pulling my leg:
We love Obama — even those who claim to despise him — because deep in our hearts and all over our lives, we're the same way — both inside and outside our jobs, our races, our cities, our countries, ourselves. With great artists, often the most irritating feature of their work is the source of their talent. Obama's gift is the same as his curse: He's somehow managed to be like the rest of us, only infinitely more so.
he is trained politically in Chicago. Chicago pols know how to win political battles. Never underestimate a chicago Pol.
Unlike some of them, however, he's clean as a hounds'tooth.
Ironically, while many surrounding the first Daley were arrested and convicted of various pecadillos, Daley always remained or appeared squeeky clean. To the end , he lived in a bungalow in the western edge of the city. The only way to know which of the houses of ticky-tacky were his was to drive by at 7 a.m. when a limo came to drive him to city hall.
Obama will know how to deal with his Dems and I suspect will use the Republicans strengths against themselves. Watch and learn.
Ain't nothin' clean about a Muhammadan who denies he is and lies day in and out.
Clean as a hounds tooth denies the bacterial filth abiding upon such tooth.
[i] The commonly held belief that a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's mouth is not true--a dog's mouth is filled with different kinds of bacteria, depending on what it has tasted, chewed or ingested. If your dog has been eating fecal matter, tasting a dead animal, sniffing or licking his own or another dog's rear end or chewing on a decomposing object, harmful bacteria may have entered and begun to grow in your dog's mouth.
Chicago ass BH0's been intimate with indicates he ain't clean but filth.
Obama is a pro, and he has dirty pros working for him to keep him clean - just like Jack Kennedy did. He's nobody's fool.
The author, on the other hand, is an oddball. Like Chris Matthews, he can't separate fact from emotion. He fell in love and can't fight the infatuation to see clearly. It's sad to see people like this.
The author is not too shabby at preventing facts from getting in the way of a good story, though. When he writes:
Plot 3: Rags to Riches
Born into nothing, the guy made $1.7 million on his book sales last year. He's money.
he neglects that The One's grandparents, who raised him, were comfortable upper middle class professionals, he was sent to the finest private prep school in Hawaii, and his father, such as he was, was a ranking member of the Kenyan government.
The rags to riches canard is just another of the falsehoods that have foisted this era upon us.
Barack Obama is brilliant in his role. Whether a one-term or two-term President, he is supposed to gain as much yardage as possible for the Progressives, and make it stick long enough so it would be hard for future Presidents and Congresses to undo. He has done that.
And it makes me sad for the United States.
It will take a long-term Herculean effort to reverse the misnamed "progress" of the last two-and-one-half years. I hope we have the resolve to do it.
Stephen Marche, a reporter for the Esquire wrote, "How can we not love Obama?" This reporter is delusional. How can this reporter be so WRONG? Then again, many of the reporters on the left aka. The Mainstream Media are mesmerized by Barack Hussein Obama as if he was the Messiah.
I do not love Barack Hussein Obama and there are many other Patriotic Americans who feel the same way. Obama is a Community Agitator. He is a divisive and polarizing figure who pits one group of Americans against another. Obama is a BULLY and a LIAR, who uses scare tactics and threats against the American people. His policies and rhetoric shows weakness to the World, which endangers America. He likes to call himself a progressive; however that is an inaccurate description of him. Obama is a Statist, and oppressor or tyrant. He used water as a means to bribe two representatives from California for their votes on healthcare, which was a despicable act that dictators do to their people. Healthcare was passed because John Boehner signed onto the Stupak (Stupid) Amendment; otherwise it would have gone down to defeat. So, Boehner should get the credit or blame for Obamacare passing.
Barack Hussein Obama happened to be President when Osama Bin Laden was located and killed. The MSM were drooling all over themselves that Bin Laden was killed under this Democrat President calling it a “gutsy” call. ObaME has said it was his mission to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden. Therefore, it was NOT a gutsy call, it was the only call. Nevertheless, it took ObaME 16 hours to supposedly make the decision to get Bin Laden, after knowing he was in the compound since August 2010. Why didn’t the MSM ask him what took him so long? When you look at the picture of the War Room on that day Obama looked like the smallest person in the room.
Adolph Hitler was idolized by the German people and many others around the World. Hitler like Obama also made the cover of Time Magazine prior to the World realizing what a Monster he was. One of the problems this country is having is reporters like Marche and the Mainstream Media are writing puff pieces like this on Obama that some people may believe is true.
