« 3 Secret Service Agents Lose Jobs, So Far | Main | Say It Ain't So, Joe! »

Weekend Open

You's funny...President Obama  talks about the GOP's  'War Against Women'  while he declares war against everyone else in this country. Then he talks about 'unelected officials' while he surrounds himself with 'czars.' It seems we live in an upside down nation anymore.

Have a nice weekend and feel free to post what you like.

We're not supposed to notice.

"The one" has all the traits of:

"A Sociopathic liar

A sociopath is typically defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. A sociopath is often goal-oriented (i.e., lying is focused - it is done to get one's way). Sociopaths have little regard or respect for the rights and feelings of others. Sociopaths are often charming and charismatic, but they use their talented social skills in manipulative and self-centered ways (see, lovefraud, for more on sociopaths)."

And he actually appears to believe he can win re-election by re-treading his 2008 campaign of Hope and Change combined with quite a bit of Divide and Conquer. What a narcissistic idiot.

"Bidens Donates 1.5 Percent of Income to Charity in 2011"

You libs are great at spending other people's money but when it comes to donating your own money you tell charities who give it to poor people a big FU. Whose surprised? Remember Al Gore deducting his underwear as a tax write-off?

What's the % of African-American voters for Obama?

April 13, 2012 at 19:34 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Obama is now attacking Apple but supported Solyndra. That's why he's going to lose in 2012.

Absolutely disgusting, Duff. And quite relevant, since our foul Quisling president is on the record in favor of such things, having voted four times to allow the murder of inconvenient babies after they are born.

"GSA official to take the Fifth"

How corrupt has an administration got when the head of the GSA takes the fifth on answering questions of expenditures?

April 14, 2012 at 09:06 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Obama is is unfair for Warren Buffett's secretary to have to pay a higher tax rate than her boss. In the interest of fairness, we should lower all income tax rates to match the rate paid on capital gains.

April 14, 2012 at 10:55 | Unregistered CommenterMachiavelli

The Obama's and the Biden's can't wait for tax season to be over. It's one long band-aid pull of hyprocrisy with these two.

"Vice President Joe Biden last year earned $20,900 in rental income from the Secret Service, which is paying him to host agents on his property so they can protect him. Most high-profile people in need of protection pay people to keep them safe. Government officials are allowed to have taxpayers pick up the tab. Biden is unique in that he actually gets paid by his bodyguards for the right to protect him."

But remember Joe thinks we don't pay our fair share in taxes. Now I know that means we don't pay HIM enough in taxes to have the Secret Service stay on his property. Unfriggin' believable.

Remember Al Gore deducting his underwear as a tax write-off?

Uh, no. But I’m sure you do. You “remember” loads of things that never actually happened.
You know, there’s no shame in being wrong literally all the time, Tom. The shame is that you simply don’t care.

April 14, 2012 at 15:02 | Registered CommenterWinston


It was the other half of the "you'll be able to sail across the Artic in summer" who wrote-off his underwear. God knows what was on Clinton's underwear. We know it wasn't Hillary.

April 14, 2012 at 17:33 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Hey, Thomas! For once, Snotty Winston might be right about something. Scary thought, I know, that someone who is asylum-style crazy might have actually gotten one right, but it was bound to happen if he typed words into his keyboard long enough. Winston is singlehandedly representing the infinite number of monkeys in a room with an infinite number of typewriters, etc. etc.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure it was Bill Clinton, not Al Gore, who deducted his dirty underwear. Godfrey Daniel! STOP THE PRESSES! That puts the whole matter in an entirely different light, if it was Clinton, not Gore, demonstrating... um... well... the exact and precise point you were making.

April 14, 2012 at 17:46 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

It was Bill Clinton, not ALGORE. I posted the link but like a lot of my posts it's off into the either somewhere.

“The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic…Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution; the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people, who wish doctors and treatments of their own choice, to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers.The Constitution of the Republic should make a Special provision for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom."
― Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Constitution

April 14, 2012 at 20:34 | Registered CommenterGrayRider

Dr. Rush seems to have hit upon something that we, as a society, are blithely ignoring, which is the lust for control that drives leftists to push for government-run health care. The power-mad oligarchs couldn't care any less about the individual sick or dying person, but rather only care about consolidating their control over as much of our daily lives as possible. Sadly, they have millions of unquestioning useful idiots, driven by false ideas of compassion, who will help them achieve their goals at the ballot box.

Dick Cheney on Barack Obama;

"he's been an unmitigated disaster."

On enhanced interrogation techniques, i.e. waterboarding;

"It produced a wealth of information. Don't let anybody tell you the enhanced interrogation program didn't work. It did."

What's the % of African-American voters . . . [Gateway Pundit link]

Yawn. Racists are wingnuts and wingnuts are racists. You do surprise me a bit, Tom: your (feigned?) shock and indignation over having it pointed out that people who say blacks tend to be criminals are the sort of people who believe blacks tend to be criminals, made me think you’d rather preserve some plausible deniability. You get none when you post approving links to open sewage lines like that comment thread.

Of course this is all to the good. It’s deeply clarifying and refreshing for Americans to know what wingnuts really believe. Most of the time they feel they have to hide it. Political correctness, you know.

April 16, 2012 at 14:11 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

Likewise Cheney calling the Administration a disaster. What more could the re-election campaign ask for, coming from a war criminal whose public approval levels vie with those of gonorrhea?

You stay classy Winston.

The racist this and racist that Tourette’s Syndrome you have gets no love or sympathy here.

The thread you link to, approvingly, speaks for itself. It's sewage. Apparently you don't mind having others associate you with sewage.

Nothing funnier than Tom "f*** this, f*** that, she's a c*** and a b****, blacks are criminals" Miller sarcastically telling others to "stay classy."

I missed something (not unusual I know - beating windy to it), where is that quote by any conservative - called wingnuts by windy - that say's that blacks "tend to be criminals?" For some reason that old song by the BS&T's, "Spinning Wheel", just popped into my mind.

Or does someone just feel like being especially FOS today.

Please provide the direct quote. Thank you. I mean, I mean I know you liberal folk would never make shit up. That just wouldn't be right nowouldit.

The GSA - who watches over our money;and do they ever - having a great time with taxpayer money out in Vegas:

And then there's the purported CIA prostitootin down in Colombia while guarding the prez.

"President Obama addressed the incident for the first time on Sunday, saying he will be "angry" if the reported allegations against the agents turn out to be true."

Uh oh, he's gonna be angry. :-) Somebody's in trouble now. This administration has really set some new standards for behavior we can all be proud of. And we can all sleep better at night knowing HIS gov't is on the job.

In a weird sense at least the SS was spending our tax money on something useful. I will say this, I dated a girl whose older brother was on Reagan's personal detail and that guy wouldn't so much as drink a second beer. Things have changed.

April 16, 2012 at 16:43 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Please provide the direct quote.

I already provided the direct quote, upon Tom’s demand, in the thread “The Real War Against Women.” Go look for it there if you like, I'm not going to post it over and over. He couldn’t deny writing it; I just cut-n-pasted his own entry.

Wingnuts love playing the “Who You Calling “A” Racist?” game, but just quoting what come out of their own mouths is all anyone needs. Anyone who, like Tom, approves of that comment thread of pure sewage at Gateway Pundit . . . . well, approves of sewage. And doesn’t mind wading in it.

April 16, 2012 at 16:53 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

I mean, I mean I know you liberal folk would never make shit up. That just wouldn't be right nowouldit.

That’s hilarious TJ. Tom makes stuff up virtually every time he opens his mouth, including the second post in this thread.

LOL, oh' man. Winston's has the worst job around, spear catcher for the Biden's. Google Biden 2011 tax return pin cushion, not to tough. 1.5% in charity donation in big ole' BLACK LETTERS.

April 16, 2012 at 18:09 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Hey spear catcher; I thought your boy Biden per Barry was going to go through the budget line-by-line looking for waste?

"Cheers! Photos Show Embattled GSA Official Enjoying Wine and Soak in Spa Tub at M Hotel During “Pre-Conference” Meeting"

Yeah it’s going to be a tough sell to American voters that we need a tax increase when libs spend $800k on a conference in Vegas. But taxes and budget cuts to liberals have always been for other people to pay or endure.
Not "really smart liberals."

April 16, 2012 at 18:16 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

I followed that there link windy. Sorry, but could not find that quote or anything that could even be spun in that direction.

It took me to four posts with nothing related to your statement there, so I looked several posts to either side and still did not find that quote or anything like it.

Now you may have a beef with the way some folks express their dislike of "the one" and you can even deem that to be racist if you so choose -and you obviously do - but that does not mean that conservatives in general - certainly not any pundits or politicians of whom I am aware - have ever said or thought that "blacks tend to be criminals." That is simply ridiculous.

April 16, 2012 at 18:25 | Registered CommenterTijuana

Oh' come Tij; haven't you ever heard of close enough? When I pointed out that African-Americans represent a higher % of the criminal population than their over-all census figures show as in evidence by FBI statistics, I was called a racist. It fits the victim narrative by the spear catcher.

April 16, 2012 at 18:43 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Why on earth do any of us (and I'm a terrible offender here) pay the slightest attention to Winston? I dunno. It's like being distracted by buzzing mosquito, an annoying and brainless bug with nothing to offer us other than annoyance.

Where's my DEET bottle?

April 16, 2012 at 19:00 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Where would you be without Winston to inject a little reality into your paranoid right wing fantasy world? I'll tell ya, you'd be walking around muttering to yourself...ditto ditto ditto.

Winston and reality are unacquainted with one another, KwAwk.

Nooshans get all their tribal identiity from their movement, which is now made up of delusional, paranoid morons ("stupid") and cynical opportunists who do and say whatever will rile up the delusional, paranoid morons ("evil"). Increasingly, they understand that many, many, many Americans don't share their delusions. That enrages them and makes them feel persecuted.

Today’s example of the ongoing freak show demonstrates how bizarre and agitated they’re becoming.

It IS exciting they have finally settled on a nominee.

After three and half years of loving and adoring MSM press, it must be kick-in the gut to Obama to see Gallop has him losing to Romney. Voters just can't get over that incompetent issue with Barry. Great vacationer, bracket picker and getting the buds together for golf though!

April 17, 2012 at 09:53 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Obama . . . great vacationer

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

It’s quite stunning how consistently you're wrong every single time you open your piehole. Turns out President Obama is barely one-third the vacationer that the Catastrophe That Walks on Two Legs was. (Of course, that Administration was actually largely conducted by "Dick" “Gonorrhea” Cheney.)

April 17, 2012 at 11:13 | Registered CommenterWinston

Tom, you and the other wingnuts wouldn’t have some problematic racial attitudes, would you? I’m just asking because, well, when Redbeard gives George Bush a total pass for expressing exactly the same sentiment for which he excoriates Barack Obama, and when you deride President Obama for taking, um, carry the three, about 40% of the vacation time the Boy-King took, we’ve gotta start wondering, uh, wassup? Double standards much?

I only ask because you’re someone who says black people are more criminally-inclined, and because you linked (apparently approving, I dunno) to a comment thread that's just loaded up with disgusting racial sewage.

Seems a fair question, but hey, if not, just say so. I’m sure you have some plausible explanation.

April 17, 2012 at 11:30 | Registered CommenterWinston

When Obama vacations, money is no option. That's the difference. As for your racial tantrums, their old and not worth the time.

And the thing is TM, "the one' has been campaigning since Sept 2011. That is officially. Not allowing for the entire time he has been in office.

Romney has hardly begun his campaign against "the one" and he's running neck and neck pretty much by default.

Is this ever going to be a sweet election year.

And windy espouses, "Increasingly, they understand that many, many, many Americans don't share their delusions. That enrages them and makes them feel persecuted."

A whopping 67% disapproval for "the ones" job performance to date. Uh, that is likely voters. Dont't know about y'all but this "enrages" me.

On Limbaugh's sponsors,
"While his left-wing antagonists at Media Matters,, and elsewhere in the web of extremist hate groups were busy confecting "lost sponsors" -- 50…100…gasp…150!... -- in fact Rush lost a total of 4 -- 4! -- actual sponsors of his show. And he has sponsors lining up to replace them."

Who was it that posted here that he had lost 114? Who was that? Chewey lee Moo?

April 17, 2012 at 15:58 | Registered CommenterTijuana

A CNN poll the same day had Obama at +9. The Gallup poll is down in Rasmussin land which leads me to believe that it is a major outlier.

April 17, 2012 at 17:06 | Registered Commenterkwawk

Romney isn't even the nominee yet, but is running even with, and in some cases ahead of, President Barry Soetoro (or whatever name he's using this year), Add to that the fact that the left-wing media armor that has protected The One for 4 years is getting pretty well dented and perforated, and is on the verge of cracking wide open. So of course the Quisling-in-Chief is nearing panic stage.

Given Obama's extreme narcissism and how that affects his ability (or lack thereof) to deal with critical questioning, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a public Captain Queeg breakdown moment from Obama. The only difference is that Queeg was once a fine officer and a gentleman, as opposed to Obama, an unqualified Marxist clod without honor. Well, and the fact that Queeg was fictional, while our current president is all too disturbingly real.

April 17, 2012 at 20:02 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Its amazing to me how you guys are able to mentally project all of Dubya's faults onto Obama without even a hint of irony occurring to you.

In any case Red, Romney is a known quantity. He's been running for President since at least 2006. The only real mystery with Romney is which Mitt Romney would actually show up as President. The liberal Massachusetts Romney, the moderate Rockefeller republican we're about to be treated to in the General or the Wingnut Romney we've seen in the Republican primary.

People keep wondering who the real Mitt Romney is, but I think in truth there is no real Mitt Romney. He corporate all the way. He doesn't care about any of the issues really, except maybe lowering his own taxes, he just wants to be President, and will be any President that he thinks would get him elected to two terms.

April 17, 2012 at 20:45 | Registered Commenterkwawk
