Our Rhetorician in Chief claims Egypt is not an ally, while his own State Department has to correct him. It's just further evidence that Obama is, and never has been, a brilliant man.

U.S. State Department corrects Barack Obama: Egypt IS an American ally, Mr President

52 days till we throw the bum out! It’s coming. On November 6th, the American people will stand up and yell in unison, “You’re fired!” It’s building up steam, like a freight train, it’s coming.

Obama, the great rhetorician
Long-winded, condescending, patrician
With the world up in smoke
This guy is a joke
Might as well put a sign up: “Gone Fishin’”

I found a brilliant rhetorician in Virginia. "I think you guys (the media) get embroidered knee pads from the White House." she said.

She looked pissed. Good for her! Now that is a fired up base who’s going to take along a lot of independents to the only poll that counts. A+++

Nice. Hope you don’t mind if I riff off your rhyme:

Obama’s a sly rhetorician
His words belie his true mission
America’s demise his penultimate prize,
For godhood is what he’s a wishin’

Editorial note: although we all are using O as the symbol of rhetorician, he’s really just a windbag.

A rhetorician is merely a person with an excess of verbosity

Now that Hilary's State department is starting to get blamed for the murders in Libya, I wonder if her Hubbah "Bubba", the Rhetorician, will stand up in her defense?

And will Billy Bubba go off the reservation in a tirade like the last time and stop campaigning for Obozo as well.....

Rhetorician

These big words are best left to our resident litery scholar, so called since he has been studying liter bottles for years, our very own, Clive Bertrand, Popular Mechanics Archivist and Sanitation Plant Foreman.

Clive: “This is from a famous novel about Scarlett O’Hairy who wore these big dresses in a big house, had a big mouth and a Butler named Rhet that she loved even though he had only one suit and big false teeth.

So ole Scarlett, the Starlett talked alot about Rhet the butler and she was a Rhetorician.

The story was Written by Martha Stewart Mitchell when she wasn't making cakes too ugly to sell and too pricey to eat.”

Thank you Clive, I now know more about The War of Digression.

Cool. And that is a great line “embroidered knee pads”.

Well it’s time for the I told you so: BHO, McCain, Bill Kristol, etc. were all 100% wrong about the Arab Spring. Glenn Beck and I were right.
