Holy wow.

I'll bet ol' President Sparky didn't expect to get critical questions from his Univision interview.

Asking him why consulates are not being protected?

Asking him why Holder shouldn't be fired for Fast and Furious? Note: this link is to Daily Caller and has one of those damnable autoplay videos.

Maybe if the US press asked tougher questions the President would be better prepared for the questions of Univision.

After the Obama interview at least our Hispanic friends now know what bullshit sounds like in Spanish.

Elizabeth Warren vs Scott Brown: Live Debate

Tonight's drinking game: every time she says "millionaires and billionaires"
(gonna be rough!)

I missed it. Was Warren wearing her buckskins and beads?

It's infuriating that our MSM continue to cover for this president, while it takes a minor Spanish language network to ask the questions that need answering.

Fire Eric Holder, and fire Obama, and maybe we will then be able to get the truth about Fast and Furious.

I missed it. Was Warren wearing her buckskins and beads?

No wampums, but after denying she received any preferential treatment as a "woman of color" (if Warren stood in front of a white board she'd be camouflaged) Brown challenged her to release her college app docs to prove whether or not she checked the box that said 'minority'.

Warren kept her trend of not revealing such information going and of course refused.

September 21, 2012 at 09:34 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Why would she refuse?

Oh, yeah. That.

People in MA take no chances when Warren's motorcade comes by; they instinctively put their cars in circles and stick their Winchester repeating rifles out the windows for protection. You can't be too careful!

If any Republican president said the things that this guy say's the MSM would be laughing him out of town. Something like this: "you can only change Washington from the OUTSIDE? What is the president saying? He is the president of the United States for chrissake!" hahahahahahahaahahahahahahahah.........

The other night on letterman barry actually said he didn't know what the deficit is currently. Imagine what happens if George Bush had said that. "He is the president of the United States and he doesn't know what the deficit is? CRIMANEE ITALY!" hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.........

This guy steps on his wonk daily and not a peep. Not that there is any bias in the MSM windy and skawk.

I'd say it is time to give this guy a shot at instituting some change - FROM THE OUTSIDE.

OMG! I'm so definitely going back to Marquette St in Davenport this weekend so I can snap a photo of a campaign sign I saw in a yard flooded with Democrat-only signs while running some errands this afternoon. It said "OBAMA: HOPE 2012"

They really DID drop the "Change".

September 21, 2012 at 15:36 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Say, did you know President Obama’s grandfather was a CIA agent who persuaded Barack Obama Sr. to marry his teenage daughter to hide the fact that she’d been secretly impregnated by a communist? Oddly enough, our current President is a closeted communist, bent on instilling a classic Stalinist-Marxist agenda upon America at home and abroad.

The head of the Alabama GOP said so. My stars.

September 21, 2012 at 17:50 | Registered CommenterWinston

It said "OBAMA: HOPE 2012"

So... now they're not hoping for change, but just hoping for hope? I hope they're satisfied with their hoping hope. My hope is that their hope gets crushed on the rocks of hopelessness.

September 21, 2012 at 19:06 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Did not know that windy. Sounds about right though. Thanx for the info. :)

September 22, 2012 at 11:06 | Registered CommenterTijuana

Given Obama's super secretive nature, it's not hard to understand why ideas like this grow roots.

What is not in doubt at all is the fact that throughout Obama's teenage years, he was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, and ultra-leftist radical, an admitted pedophile, a porno author, and a proven member of the Communist Party. Whether or not Davis was Obama's biological father, it's an obvious conclusion that the man had a profound effect on young Obama's outlook on life.

September 22, 2012 at 11:31 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

I think running on a platform that the President needs to be replaced because he's a pedophile, pornographer, and Communist (oh, I left out out Tom Miller's accusation of incestous child molestor) is a winner. Go with that one, Nooshanz ™.

And these Klown Kar Politikos wonder why normal people tune them out.

September 24, 2012 at 09:35 | Registered CommenterWinston

I do hope that whoever that Alabama GOP guy is, he will pay the price for making an obviously made-up, lying statement on the floor of the US Senate.

Or am I getting that Alabama GOP leader confused with the Cryptkeeper/Senate Majority Leader from Las Vegas?

Hey Duff, has anyone demanded to see Dingy Harry Reid's tax returns? Could be interesting. Somehow, the man has managed to go from poor to filthy rich without doing a day's work outside politics. Estimates of his net worth range from $4mm up to over $6mm. I'm reminded of Harry Truman's blunt but accurate admonition that a man can't get rich in politics unless he's crooked.

September 24, 2012 at 10:56 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Duff, man, your sarcasm is as unwarranted as your attempt to change the subject is laughable. I'll go over this slowly so you can understand it. What Harry Reid said was this: someone he regards as credible told him Clueless Plutocrat actually paid no taxes at all over some or all of a ten-year period. CP has still released only two years of returns. CP releasing a sworn statement from an accountant doesn’t settle much (a concept easily grokked, surely, by people who spent years demanding a “long-form” birth certificate) (and STILL aren’t satisfied).

Let me summarize. Reid never vouched for the gossip he passed along—how could he?—and the only proof we have Romney actually DID pay taxes all those years is a notarized assurance from his accounting firm stating what IT calculates was his average annual rate over those years (one quite bit lower than a lot of middle-class households pay).

Listen, I dunno know whether Reid made up his story or actually heard it from someone credible. Neither do you. In any event you’re quite wrong that Reid was caught "lying" or that his statement—“several people told me he paid no taxes at all”—has been discredited. It just hasn't.

Meanwhile a state’s top GOP official—not some flea-bitten urine-soaked bum who volunteers to empty the trash, but the f****ing head of the f****ing state party—is out peddling the most grotesque of Area-51-style conspiracy theories.

And you people wonder why you’re roundly ridiculed. Anyone with brains or functioning shame glands would be mortified having such clowns purport to speak for them. But there you go.

September 24, 2012 at 12:10 | Registered CommenterWinston

Man, you lefties sure do need to distance yourselves from anything about the disreputable Frank Marshall Davis, proven or spectulative, because the proven stuff is quite damning by itself, given Obama's closeness to his mentor Davis during his formative years.

Sorry to see that Winston's Tourette's is flaring up again.

Shorter Redbeard and Duff, man: "If the liberal media would only stop suppressing the news that the President is a Kenyan anti-colonialist Muslim Marxist child-molesting Satan-worshipper, Romney would have this election in the bag."

Coincidentally, my grandsons and I were watching the Cartoon Network the other day, and a Looney Tunes with the Tazmanian Devil came on. I shouted, "I know that guy! His real name is Winston." The boys were impressed.

You don't need to make up stories for us, Redneck.

We know you don't have any grandchildren.

I'm sure you're attempting cleverness there, Winnie, but it isn't working.

Looks like another day of good news for The Plutocrat Without a Clue in the swing state polls.

Lies! Those polls have a liberal bias. Only the Rasmussen polls can be trusted.
