obama is trying to beguile the American people and Congress once again with his “jobs” program. But having been swindled much too often already, the old obama “magic” just isn’t there!

sort of.

On the male part, file that article under ‘No,$#it, Sherlock’.

About women...

He’s wrong.

‘But while men will certainly think that a female candidate’s beauty makes her fit for a certain role, president isn’t it. ‘

Tell me, how many conservatives would be supporting a Male gov. that quit midway thru his term, under any reason.

(Like, who would have let a white guy in the WH with that resume?)

Half the audience for the anointed one, is as spellbound by her physical charms as they are her positions...

Don’t take my word for it read the commentary.

A tactical retreat to avoid personal bankruptcy that also doubled as smart succession planning. I can dig it.

Her only crime was failing to become a millionaire during her time in office, unlike some other people who will remain nameless.

I understand the situation.

(personally, I think that is a reprehensible situation, which has been corrected because of her, another mark on the plus side.)

That was not my point.

You know as well as I do, that 99 percent of voters are not well enough informed to understand that.

FCOL, look at the kerfluffle over the use of the term Ponzi Scheme by Perry, when it has been fairly common parlance on BOTH sides of the aisle over the years.

Which brings me back to, “we are doomed, why do we bother at all”.

I guess because we like the game, even though we know the dice are loaded.

Bachmann piling on with the Ponzi scheme criticism is a low for her. So sad.

One can recognize SS as the fraud that it is without necessarily being hostile to the elderly. She sees her campaign falling apart and decides to play the “they want to throw granny in the street” card.

And T-paw endorses Romney? What up with that?

Prez Puppet,who so charmingly beguiled his way into the top spot in politics, is beguiling his way out. Even his staunches supporters seem to realize that the “rock star” (his words, not mine)pup, errr, Prez has taken them for a ride. Beguiling, snobbish ways aside, he has not done what he said he would and then there is the double negative vice at his side...

isn’t the VP supposed to be the attack dog? T-Paw is not even capable of a growl, let alone attacking. Marco Rubio is more the candidate for VP that I would want.

don't these cupcakes sound GOOD???

The two cupcakes created by executive pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac are the “Dorris Dayngerous,” a pink chiffon cake with raspberry jam and lemon buttercream, and the “Whiskey Houston,” a Johnny Walker-brown sugar cake with an Buffalo Trace-apple butter and a Jameson-vanilla buttercream. The two tough cupcakes are $4 each. Get ‘em while their hot and support your gals on roller skates

we saw Mary Katherine Hamm at this bakery yesterday! i know it was her bc i tweeted her asking and she replied that i should've said hi : )

The stock market plunging faster than David Caruso’s acting career will do that to me.

The difference is that the stock market has actually gone somewhere to begin with. Caruso had nowhere from which to plunge.
