Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Obama stands before us, regal, condescending, marmoreal. As my Italian pals in Brooklyn would say, “He thinks who-the-hell he is.”

To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.

No pushing at the door please!

Oh, I see you have already used marmoreal in conjunction with Obama. Great minds...think! LOL

Okay, let me try another one:

All of Obama’s supporters displayed a shocked, marmoreal countenance as their messiah was crushed by a Mormon in the 2012 elections.

The Pres_ent behaves so marmoreal
Lofty speeches... smug and sartorial.
But like Clint and the ‘Chair’
There is no “there” there,
As to substance, he’s quite incorporeal.

Walter Sobchak: Also, let's not forget - let's *not* forget, Dude - that keeping wildlife, an amphibious rodent, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city - that aint legal either.

The Dude: What are you, a [redacted] park ranger now?

Walter Sobchak: No, I'm...

Marmoreal — that reminds me of my recently completed car trip from Wisconsin to California and back again. Along Highway 80 (west) there are numerous road side billboards touting the enticements of “Little America”, 2 resorts in Wyoming that boast that they have everything a traveler could want. Each sign is different and features a different attraction. One of them proclaims (to the long distance truckers) “17 Marble Showers!”

We actually spent one night at the Little America resort in Cheyenne (because of the signs) and could barely make ourselves leave. It was a little bit of heaven on the Wyoming high plains and quite reasonable in cost. The opportunity to spend another night at Little America is the only thing that would make me attempt that trip again.

I have unearthed the ONLY known picture of Karl Marx, in a marmoreal stance, hobnobbing with Obama:

The President looks good in marble. There are no similar photos of the Vice-President. Apparently, Joe lost his marbles years ago. There is a picture of the “statuesque” Secretary of State, who achieved her Rubenesque curves by indulging in a certain chocolate-covered marshmallow cookie, causing her to bcome mal-o-mar-moreal.

If you have the stomach for it, Ambassador Stevens' dead body was paraded through the streets by savages. Where was President Obama? Doubling down on his apology. Obama started attacking Romney and Ryan about foreign policy, I am glad to see Romney hitting Obama hard on this foreign policy disaster. Obama is quoted from his book, "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." There you have it folks.

From the Arab spring to recovery summer, we now find ourselves in fall....freefall. Vote the bum out in just 54 days. Can't come soon enough. Yesterday, on a sacred day 11 years after we were attacked by Al Qaeda, their flag flew over United States soil. Enough.

Don’t we celebrate Marmoreal Day in May?

Perhaps there will be a marmoreal statue of “The Fake Indian” in Massachusetts to commemorate Elizabeth Warren’s failed 2012 campaign!

Another marmoreal rebuff to Netanyahu and Israel by Obozo and his circus of clowns.

If Romney and Ryan win do you think all the children working at the White house will be removing all the "R" keys from the computer keypads this time?...../sarcasm

The word sounds like it could also be the name of some jungle dwelling animal-a small lemur or monkey...

Speaking of Libyan violence
Obama assumes his usual pose-
A distant, marmoreal attitude
As he gazes down his nose

He reads from his teleprompter
A speech we recognize as stock
And turns on the phony empathy
As he keeps one eye on the clock

He’s got to be in Vegas today,
There’s no time to be concerned-
He’s too busy with his campaign
To mend bridges he has burned
