The obsequious publishing companies have finally found their voice to document some of Obama's many lies in his book. Yesterday, one review put it at 38 outright lies. I am sure the official excuse is that his was a "composite" life. When the MSM joins in, he will be finished. Or, we do it without them.

Maraniss Comes Clean on Obama's Seattle Hegira

Obama's grandfather tortured by the British? A fantasy (like most of the President’s own memoir)

The Book: Barack Obama: The Story, by David Maraniss....I have to get this book!

Obsequious. When I looked it up in my dictionary, I found a picture of Chris Matthews staring adoringly at Obama.

*Cough*

Hairball. This is tougher than I thought ...

http://www.oldielyrics.com/lyrics/steve_martin/grandmothers_song.html

Be courteous, kind, and forgiving
Be gentle and peaceful each day
Be warm and human and grateful
And have a good thing to say
Be thoughtful and trustful and childlike
Be witty and happy and wise
Be honest and love all your neighbors
Be obsequious, purple and clairvoyant

Be sure to stop at stop signs
And drive fifty-five miles an hour
Pick up hitchhikers foaming at the mouth
And when you get home get a master’s degree in geology

Be pompous, obese, and eat cactus
Be dull and boring and omnipresent
Criticize things you don’t know about
Be oblong and have your knees removed

(Ladies only) Never make love to Bigfoot
(Men only) Hello, my name is Bigfoot
(Everyone) Put a live chicken in your underwear
Go into a closet and suck eggs

The mainstream reporter: obsequious
Shows every day just how weak he is
Never challenge the lies
While there are tingles in thighs
Or tell the Naked Emperor what a freak he is

I take this as an encouraging sign. Romney is scheduled to speak to a less than obsequious audience. Of course I reserve the right to withdraw the praise if it turns into a panderfest.

Obumbum’s obsequious manners towards foreign leaders is nauseating to Americans and has earned him no respect from foreigners.

I dream of the day when a candidate goes to the NAACP and gives a speech on the economy or foreign policy. Romney should just treat them like Americans and give a speech explaining how he is going to revive the economy. Explain how this improves the lives of all, if he must.

Actually challenging them to change the attitudes in their communities about work and studying and responsibility would be too much.

Barack Obama - his demeanor an incongrous juxtaposition of contempt for our allies and obsequiousness to our foes.



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

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)

Do they have absolutely no morals or sense in NYC? Or is the city filled with childless people who don’t worry if a child visiting from somewhere else sees naked adults? I don’t understand why this isn’t bordering on a sex crime - like flashing.

Obungle’s prior obsequious behaviors led to cartoons depicting him as bowing to the Burger King.

I have taken my young children into the city to visit my sister over the years. What we saw, though no nudity, was appalling. We all got an education in humanity’s depravity. My biggest memory for the World Trade Center was on the sidewalk outside the main doors, when a homeless man just sits right down about 3ft outside the main doors. He took of his show to show half a foot, an unhealthy looking one at that. People averted their eyes and walked wide around them hurrying on their way. My sister and I had to grab four kids and hustle them into the building before he looked up and took offense at one of them staring. Every one of my kids still remembers him. I am pretty sure they amputated more of that foot, either that or the infection killed him. The crazies were everywhere. If you looked at them they would come right at you. Scary.

Breezy and cloudy today-hope it rains-

The depth of Holder’s problem
Appears to have become double-
But being obsequoius with Issa
Might have saved him the trouble

Of looking so damn guilty that
Obama’s desperate protection
Has set his AG up for everyone
To make the coverup connection

He’s too cluelerss to understand
If stuff like this needs fixin’
The playbook to consult belongs
To Clinton rather than Nixon...

I heard the guys on Fox news this morning using the “W” word loud and clear-all that is missing are the WH “plumbers” and some tapes/e-mails...
