My aperçu of this poster is that it's a loser. Obama's New Campaign slogan "Get my Back".

....wonder who will, figuratively of course, stab him in the back before election night?

Barack, my first glance aperçu
I didn't quite know what to do
Articulate, bright
Nice and clean, sounded white
I knew quickly that toute was perdue

Walking down the Avenue
On my way to the Inuit Barbeque
I happened to get an apercu
Of a very unusual caribou.
Though I did not get a bird’s eye view,
I knew what this was leading to
For now the town was in a stew,
Due to the presence of caribou
Now “OFF LIMITS” except for the Chosen Green Few.

karl rove's attempt to diminish the apercu of Obams as the fresh prince of Chi-town, is pretty damn effective IMO.

DH was devastated. Jon Bones Jones brother from Syracuse University, Chandler Jones, was the first round pick of the Patriots, his arch enemy team, and our SIL’s team. I texted her last night and she had no idea who he was. The shame of it. The Jones brothers grew up near me, the Champ Jonny Bones lives in Ithaca now. Love the Jones Brothers.

And you are right, this added major jobs to O’s record. LOL

Another enlightened discussion from the book “Look Young Forever With Taxidermy”.

Apercu

In this survery of briefs and summeries apercu is just the French misspelling of PapercuT. What can you do with people who just won't learn English after all this time?
Course it might be TapercuP or the past pucker of the additive of aper something or................I don't know French too good.

And now for a pedantic interlude.

My aperçu of today's offering is that it contains a cedilla and is accordingly pronounced with a soft "c" rather than a hard one: IPA pronunciation "apɛrˈsü"



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)

Mentioned it to you this morning, but Rep Trey Gowdy gave Ms. Sebelius (Say Bilious?) a brief aperçu of the difference between compelling interest and constitutionality. Swoonalicious. I’m sorry, Allen West, I feel like I am cheating on you....

Here is an apercu of the conference semifinals schedule. I would like to encourage everyone to hop on the beardwagon and root for my Preds tonight in Phoenix. However, if you like a lot of scoring, this series is not for you.

When I became aware of politics
My very first aperçu of ‘rats
Was to liken them to bolcheviks-
Who just wore different hats

My opinion has not changed-
They’ve got the same old smell-
Of dirty favors and corruption
And a whiff of stuff from hell

Some things really never change
They just change form as required-
Like the shape-shifter in chief
Who still needs to be fired...

Speak of the devil-dumbass is blabbing at the military again with Michelle Antoinette standing there, too. I turned it off and turned on classic rock. I’d love to know what most of the active military in other states thinks of him-I know what the ones from here think...
