The pellucid meaning of the latest scandal is clear. Obama's birthplace is still in question. Someone is lying.

Not to be confused with Pelosid, which doesn’t make any sense at all!

Obama promised us the most pellucid administration in U.S. history. I think he meant “polluted.” As in corrupt.

Welp, I don’t think it proves anything about where he was born, but it does indicate a certain willingness to push whatever narrative about himself that would give him the most advantage during any point in his life. As someone pointed out on twitter, when that bio was published in 1991, there was no interwebs for some lowly assistant to go trolling for bios. That publisher got that info from the source, or, at the very least, he (Obama) had to have approved it before it was published. A writer born in Kenya sounds much more exotic.

I think Obama has been patterning his life after Zelig.

No matter how pellucid or erudite the conservative position may be, the liberal mindset refuses to entertain even the thought of understanding it.

What a difference twenty years makes! In 1988, we were graced with the pellucid oratory of Pres. Ronald W. Reagan. Since 2008, we've been stuck with the obtuse, glozing and mendacious rhetoric of the Narcissist-in-Chief.



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

“Let me be pellucid” said the man
whose natal narrative isn’t so clear.

I am striving to make my writing more pellucid.

Accordingly, I have started a story about an enormous cavern, where ancient life forms still wander about.

O's presidency is a carbuncle on the buttocks of the body politic.

Here's more....AP declared Obama “Kenyan-Born”...This report explains the context of the oft cited debate, between Obama and Keyes in the following Fall, in which Keyes faulted Obama for not being a “natural born citizen”, and in which Obama, by his quick retort, “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency”, self-admitted that he was not eligible for the office.

whoa, I had not seen that one. From his own mouth.

Interesting that the Wright saga is off the table, I could give a spit about the sermons, but did he actually accept 150Gs to stop preaching until the election? Remeber, the coverup is always worse than the crime. And from whence did that moola come?

So we all agree that the truth of Obama’s birth is pellucid, if you look at all the evidence: multiple news reports over the years; statements from his step-grandmother; statements from Michelle; statements from himself. But, what do you call the people who refuse to see it? Stupid?

Pellucid - anything horrible. It is a combination of Pelosi and putrid.

If she stretches her skin anymore, it will be so pellucid that we will see Nancy’s brains. Well, assuming she has any, and isn’t really a zombie impersonator.

Pellucid- those rare moments where Nancy Pelosi briefly snaps out of that liberal dementia she is always wandering around in.

“She is experiencing a pellucid interval”.

I poached eggs just now and new dog and little dog loved them. New dog actually knows how to roll over. Someone spent a lot of time with him. He is a quick learner too since my youngest taught him kennel the other day in about 15 minutes. He still would love to chase and bite the cat so we’ll work on that some more today.

Another day, another attempt to make money that isn’t there-thanks, Obama...

With Obama and his enemies list
He’s channeling Nixon’s mind
And those who give him cover
Are getting harder to find

The good Rev Wright is talking
About the money and the blunder
Pissed about being silenced and
The bus he was thrown under

If it all becomes as pellucid
As glass, it won’t be pretty-
Axelrod and Holder may be called
The new Haldeman and Liddy
