I heard that live. 2 minutes of pandering to the “First Americans” before getting to our troops. Repulsive.

That man is pathetic. Rebarbative is one word that aptly describes him, another is inept, another is phony, one last one should be guilty. What’s next, are we going to see the White House on Cribs?

He might’ve well have said- “Werd to the ‘Hood” or something just as rebarbative.

The rebarbative title alone, by NPR of course, is enough to make you want to skip breakfast.

Obozo’s Press conference would have been less rebarbative if had had lead with the Ft. Hood news instead of the shout out to the “Medal of Freedom” winner.

I think he should have stuck to his comments on Fr. Hood and skipped all the rest. he needs to grow up and show some class. he isn’t worthy of being CIC. I am NOT liking this community organizing shout out addicted buffoon.

Rebarbative is an apt description of the democrat that put up a video on You Tube. She was somewhat hot under the collar about puppet pres and his remarks at the Native American Summit.

ReBARFative is even more descriptive than rebarbative when it comes to the concubine 0bamamedia.

1. Tending to irritate; repellent

So that explains it!

My thoughts this morning sound like the chatter at the enlisted man's club on a Navy base. "Can you bleep believe that bleep bleep did bleep bleep..." etc

It was more than slightly rebarbative that our national community organizer blew his misplaced "shout out" and confused the medal of freedom with the Medal of Honor.

T5’s neighbor’s hairdresser ‘s fence rusted through and the wire fell down, which let all their lesbian friends escape and run wild through their neighborhood.

She she had to rebarberititive it.

"It was more than slightly rebarbative that our national community organizer blew his misplaced "shout out" and confused the medal of freedom with the Medal of Honor."

It's perfectly logical that he should confuse honor and freedom. He has little familiarity or appreciation for either.
