You take the QCO6smQrjJ8 and click on the YouTube icon, then place it between the brackets. Similar to quoting someone (which you never do)

Pisser that the country is just now figuring him out:

Poll: 54 Percent of Americans Believe Obama Can't Get the Job Done

Only 42 percent of Americans polled believe that Obama can, in fact, perform
his job, while 54 percent say that he cannot. Two percent say that it "depends," and two percent say that they are uncertain.
Of course, the lack of coverage of this and other bits of bad news aren't being reported by the traditional Administration lap dogs - New York Times, LA Times, Washington Post, et al or on TV.

Olympus has fallen.

Heckuva job, Barry...

WASHINGTON (AP) — About 10 percent of veterans seeking medical care at VA hospitals and clinics have to wait at least 30 days for an appointment — more than twice the percentage of veterans the government said last week
VA Chief: Twice as Many Vets Wait 30 Days for Appointment than First Reported



We can discuss Obamacare and how this is the future for everyone later.

21st century version of a Nuremburg defense?

I signed the order, but I didn't mean it.

Colorado governor tries to apologize for gun control measures, blames staff, then curses | Fox News


WASHINGTON – Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s awkward attempt to patch things up with his state’s sheriffs over his support of controversial gun control legislation isn’t going as planned.

The governor, a Democrat, offered a series of unusual explanations during a meeting he held last Friday with a group of Colorado sheriffs for why he signed legislation that restricts the sale of ammunition magazines of more than 15 rounds.

First, Hickenlooper blamed his staff for not anticipating the opposition on
gun control. He then apologized for his staff’s inability to effectively
communicate and promised to do better in the future.

When Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith pressed the issue, Hickenlooper
snapped back, “What the f---? I apologized!”
Hickenlooper also said he felt pressure to sign the bill into law because a
member of his staff “made a commitment.”

“To be honest, no one in our office thought it would get through the
legislature,” he said. “There were several Democrats who said without question they weren’t going to vote for it.”

The measure passed the Democrat-controlled legislature. No Republicans voted for it.
Nothing like a looming tight election to bring out the excuses...

Can't wait for November. I need to have my faith in the nation restored. I'm hopeful.

Having been somewhat involved at one point, it truly is "The Staff" that run politicians. A lot of them are young folks fresh out of indoctrination, sorry college. They write the speeches, meet with concerned citizens, err donors, bring matters to their bosses attention, run interference, make deals with other staff etc.
Yet to meet a politician with a mind of their own.

Don't hold you're breath Benthere, the vast majority of the uninformed American voters will vote for that triad of evil: Obama, Reid, Pelosi.

Ah yes, Bush Cheney and Rumsfeld must have been true angels back in the time.

Vets ought to be first in line when they seek help for war-related medical care. It should be free, fast, and the best available. They paid.

The medicaid freeloaders and the rest of the subsidized should be the ones on 'space available'.

That poor Hillary; barely able to make ends meet.

Hillary Clinton: We?re Not ?Truly Well Off? | Mediaite


I'm sure she'll be questioned and attacked relentlessly by both the media and our egalitarian ppruners who had such problems with Romney's wealth.

Right?

Remember the mocking GWHB got? "Poor, George, born with a silver spoon in his mouth".

Absolute hammering as being crap.

Poor Hillary only received a $14 million advance.

You simply can't expect much if you aren't going to pay a living wage...

Her populist credentials include being a member of Occupy The Hamptons and a Georgian house on D.C.'s Embassy Row.

You know, to be among "the people."

Dushan,

Just for the record, that quote was "Poor George, born with a silver foot in his mouth."

Famously uttered by Texas Governor Ann Richards, shortly before she was defeated by Bush. Rumor is she had a few drinks after that.

Wow, luckily she still might run for President as people will buy the book
"just so it is on the shelf" otherwise someone will lose out big time.

Not sure everyone will agree but she has never inspired me as a person, wife of Bill or as a Politician.

Compare her to Madeleine Albright.

Matari,
Thanks. I knew I didn't have it completely right, but the inference was the same. Chastising him for being rich, while making fun of him for something he said. Solid-rock , proven, liberal tactic

Likewise, I'm sure the "War on Women" canard only applies to conservatives:

Exclusive: 'Hillary Clinton Took Me Through Hell,' Rape Victim Says - The Daily Beast

In a long, emotional interview with The Daily Beast, she accused Clinton of
intentionally lying about her in court documents, going to extraordinary lengths to discredit evidence of the rape, and later callously acknowledging and laughing about her attackers’ guilt on the recordings.
Funny how we didn't hear about this when Hillary ran her previous campaigns.

But days of coverage resulted from Romney's antics as a 15 yr old.
