Spending all of the dough he can cadge
Barry don’t need no stinkin’ badge
His accomplishments—few
Hates both Christian and Jew
Is he ready to go on his Haj?

Will Huck have to cadge for callers?

Did Mike Huckabee Open His New Radio Show With a ‘Planted Call’?

I wish him as much success as all the others who have gone up against Rush. That is to say, not much.

Obama is all about cadging from the rich to give to the poor. Honestly, i cannot watch tv anymore [other than hockey playoffs] because i become so ENRAGED. last night laura ingraham was sitting in for Mr. O and she had two leftists on talking about the Buffet rule[the woman was talking about how good it was after the Great Depression when those making over a million were taxed at 91%!!!) and i sit there screaming how i want these people dead!! LOL~! i literally can't listen to a minute of anything anymore. For the first time in my life! i have literally had fox news on in the car NONSTOP, never listened to music. NOW i cannot listen to anything BUT music, bc i will lose my mind. i was texting with my SIL who feels similarly ANGRY and hating just about everyone anymore. i will be on Paxil before November at this rate.

Cadge

Here at the Atkinsonville Cosmic Wind we use this cadge word alot since begging is a common carreer choice and leaves the alumnum cans to those that need them for their living. OK.
Now cadge could also be what a codger does in expectoration of getting a free burger from the local Slimey’s if he’ll leave the premises immediately. Stay with me, this is newspaper talk and may sound better when read from actual paper.

Last is possumble (hoooWhewww...I thought my orange drink was a little perfumey this morning!) is cadge is like cage with a spare letter tossed in....kinda like being held prisoner in a dry county....!!

The definition is a bit off -- not precise enough.

To "cadge" is specifically to ask for something small and of little value, as a favor. It can be mildly annoying if repeated -- then you become a "bot" or perpetual moocher.

E.g. "Can I cadge a quarter?" "Can I cadge a light?" or, in Australia, "Can I cadge a rollie?" (i.e. may I have the makings for a hand-rolled cigarette).

Beaten in 2012,
Obama the media did shelve.
He cadged to refill his stash,
But landed broke on his ass.
Soon rejected in Chicago,
He chose the fate of Iago.

Working on a bid that is getting to the stage where it is like pulling teeth to get the final little details...

Obama takes all the money
That he can cadge or rob-
In dire cases, he employs
The tactics of the mob

He’s lost sight of the fact
That this happened before-
We know just what Nixon did
And how he was shown the door

And channeling Jimmy Carter
Isn’t helping his case at all-
Rising gas prices only fuel
More momentum for his fall

Thank you!

I don’t think the screwups of Nixon beyond Watergate itself are much talked about in HS US history classes-the mob connections, enemy lists, blackmail, etc-it would make young people too knowledgeable. And Carter’s self-designed halo isn’t going to be tarnished by historical honesty as long as he is still alive...

I was quoting from “Raising Arizona.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salad_days

“Salad days” is an idiomatic expression, referring to a youthful time, accompanied by the inexperience, enthusiasm, idealism, innocence, or indiscretion that one associates with a young person. More modern use, especially in the United States, refers to a person’s heyday when somebody was at the peak of his/her abilities—not necessarily in that person’s youth.
