Who will provide solace to those poor 200,000 no-longer screaming Germans and all those ppruners (nearly as numerous) who were just sure, indeed positive, that Barack H. Obama and a Democrat majority in the House and Senate were going to be the cure for what ailed the U.S., indeed, the world?

How you like him now, b1tch?

Last night the Obamas went to a restaurant and his credit card was declined. He claims it's because of infrequent use. I say it's because of the debt he racked up.

More useless ammunition for the attacks on Hillary Clinton's professional record should (when) she run for President in 2016.

To the left, she deserves to be President simply due to her genitalia not her accomplishments and lack thereof.

State Department quashed investigations into criminal wrongdoing - CBS News

Now who was the U.S. Secretary of State during the time of the covered-up wrongdoings?

Name escapes me at the moment.

As it will the media cheerleaders as they leave their now tarnished beau, Barry, for the doe-like, innocent Hillary.

No doubt the ppruners who likewise were so vociferous for Obama will be along in the months ahead pining for Hillary and her 'experience.'

But Bill will have fun. All that starstruck domestic and overseas strange and on the taxpayer's dime again...

If you didn't vote for Obama and didn't like his performance in the White House, you are a racist.

If you plan on not voting for Hillary due to her total incompetence when she was Secretary of State and her pathetic attempt of a cover up for Benghazi, you are sexist.

Experience and capability counts for nothing to our progressive, so-called Democrats. Only what is Politically Correct.

So, here's the Eboa czar,

Facing renewed criticism of his handling of the Ebola risk, Obama will make Ron Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, his point man on fighting Ebola at home and in West Africa. Klain will report to national security adviser Susan Rice and to homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco, the White House said.

Klain does not have a medical or a health care background.




What could possibly go wrong? Besides, Klain probably did blow with Hunter Biden.

When your on a winning formula, why change. It was done before.

To the left, he deserves to be President simply due to his skin color not his accomplishments and lack thereof.

Those frustrations spilled over when Mr. Obama convened his top aides in the Cabinet room after canceling his schedule on Wednesday.
He was mad because he had to cancell a fundraiser.

Yet another media rat leaps from the foundering SS Obama.

Obama voters: The thrill is gone - Chicago Tribune

C'mon all you Obama supporters on PPRuNe.

Demonstrate your political and practical acumen on how you 'knew best.'

Enlighten us poor ignorant 'Murican conservatives on how Barry "calmed the waters and healed the earth."

Isn't about time for another Nobel Prize for him?

I wonder how many chapters of Obama's post retirement book will be devoted to winning the Nobel prize? It will be the highlight of his presidency as the rest of it is going to hell.

I bet, seriously, that Barry hosts some sort of talk show post-presidency.

Speeches at $.5M per, a book full of 'self-deprecating' bold decisionmaking moments worth $5-10M advance, then an afternoon talk show.

Or UN Secretary-General.

Same thing really...

Obama just doesn't understand that when you have staffed your administration with incompetent political hacks, you get incompetent decisions made by political hacks. Otherwise, why would he have just appointed another political hack as the Ebola Czar?

No doubt the frustration is genuine. He lacks any background, training, or experience that would have given him a chance to appoint competent managers to critical jobs.

This business of appointing to people that have no clue as to what they are in charge of is typical of liberal Democrats when in power, the major exception being FDR after Japan attacked us at Pearl Harbor.

During the Clinton Administration Janet Reno was made Attorney General, all of the G.H.W. Bush's appointees were thrown out and replaced by Clinton appointees, which happens every time a different Party takes over an Administration.

Our division did not escape this change of leadership. The Bush Administration’s division chief was forced to retire and we were issued a new division chief. Whose total knowledge aircraft consisted of knowing which way to turn when he boarded an airliner. I kid you not.

After one month with him in charge we were lucky to have one aircraft out of six manage to get airborne.

It took us over a year, bucking heads with him on a daily basis, before he finally realized that we were ‘not out to get him’ and that we really wanted a good working, efficient operation. We wanted to fly, not sit in our offices twiddling our thumbs reading never ending memos, well most of us that is, a couple would have been very happy to sit on their arses doing nothing for 20 years.

Two years after he took over we were operating at the highest efficiency possible, we had an IG inspection which resulted in only two minor write ups. Unheard of in government operations.

Of course he was immediately fired, being transferred to the most minor position possible where he could keep his GS level.

Our new division chief; total knowledge aircraft consisted of knowing which way to turn when he boarded an airliner.

A couple of months later, once again we were lucky to have one aircraft out of six manage to get airborne.

I see that today SCOTUS upheld the Texas voter ID law, or at least allowed it to stand during the upcoming election.

But the media, of course, is completed focused on the Old Haridan Ruth Bader Ginsburg's "spirited dissent".

Can one of you progressives here (are there any?!) explain just how requiring voter ID, like every other country in the world, discriminates against blacks and latinos? Just saying this over and over and over does not make it so.

Well let's think about this;

A. There are no white people that cannot get any kind of government ID, cause they can't drive or no one will take them to where they can get one?*

Nope, I don't think that's right.

B. All white people have a government ID pop out of their arse when they are born?

Yup, that must be it.


* By the way, there is not one federal assistance program that one can access any aid from without.......

You guessed it, a valid government issued ID. Funny that.

Slight thread drift.

We have a municipal election in a few days. Must show valid, government issued, ID with your address. They won't accept my firearms license because it does not have the address, but they will accept my passport even though it does not have the address other than the place where I can write whatever address I want in case the passport is lost.
