There is an orectic yearning for the good ole days of Reagan because this current administration is so like Jimmah Carter but supersized......

Maybe this is the remedy?.....

Entrepreneurs are orectic for a president who will promote innovation, cut back on red tape, and just get the hell out of the way so that new businesses can be created. Their current cry is: “I built that, but “O” wrecked it.”

I always thought the biggest mistake Ronald Reagan ever made was choosing George H.W. Bush...he moved the party back to the center like an east coast RINO would.

However, I think Reagan had a chance to rub off a little on W,the son. At best he seemed to be half his dad and half Ronald Reagan in style....but his grammer and speech were abysmal and because of it he was always going to look like the doofis the media painted him as, just see Will Ferrell on Saturday Night Live, as a case in point.

In the meantime, my hope is that if Romney gets elected, the heir apparent, Ryan, will look and act more like Reagan if he should get a chance to be elected president.....as the cartoon implies. ...but of course there will never be another Reagan only look-a-likes.

“Johnny, why are you late for school?”
“I saw an accident.”
“What happend?”
“A car hit a cat in the ass.”
“Rectum, Johnny, rectum.”
“Wrecked ‘im hell. Hit him in the ass. Killed ‘im.”

Krugman and Friedmen are so orectic for Chinese central planning, yet they never look at the results.

The exotic, almost sensual pleasures many take from their appetite for vanilla ice cream and chocolate cake are simplified everytime exsex eats a oreoctic cookie.

Sunny and 70 here, with only the mid 80’s predicted-maybe fall comes early this year...

For much better economic news
Many of us are just orectic-
But Obama’s cavalier attitude
Is turning us apoplectic

He chews up a logical statement
As though he can’t begin it
Until he’s asked his minions
Just how they want to spin it

The Middle East is burning now
And gas prices are climbing
Way to go there, Carter wannabe-
What an excellent sense of timing...

Orectic

You say this means, Philosophy of or pertaining to desire; appetitive.?

I guess it could but let’s break this orectic down a two barrel carb.

Perry T. was orectic (O-wreck-tic!) with three of his Daddy’s cars but I can’t say the old man was appetitive for Perry to be driving anymore.

Course now, being fair to Perry, as a nine year old his legs just weren’t long enough to reach the foot pedals.

i just saw those and it made me soooooo happy. it’s so hard hearing MSM stuff that is so drastically at odds with what we know to be true. They are sealing Romney’s coffin over the 47% BS and these polls keep rolling in.

Before Drudge put up the Gallup poll he had a swirling siren going....

After the poll went up at Drudge, he put a side note headline by the numbers.... basically stating that Gallup confirms Romney's 47% ......BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

We were laughing our heads off reading your post. Some jokes are just timeless. Like the guy who wore a tux to his vasectomy.

Hey, if you want to be "im-po-tent, you got to look im-po'-tant."

I spent (misspent?) all of my youthful summers in the Borscht Belt, the Catskills. I'm sure I've heard every old joke ever told, and most of the newer ones. One year, working as a waiter when I was about 19, I became good friends with the house comedian at the hotel. He would bounce his material off of me, claiming that I had a very discerning sense of humor. Jokes that I laughed at usually got a good response when he tried them on his audience. Those I didn't find funny usually found the same fate from the crowd. By the end of the summer--if I didn't laugh, he didn't use the material.

For some strange reason, I am prouder of the above than perhaps I should be. :)

How did I know you would know that one? You can make a lot of money waiting tables. I think everyone should do that at least once in their life. You learn so much about people. And why it is good to go to college.

dang, you had me worried there! Congrats to you. As the woman at the spa told me last week, it’s our obligation as citizens to try to bring people around to the light for this election, it’s that important. i forget who i saw saying it on Twitter last night, but they said if everyone could get just ONE other person to the polls as a guaranteed Romney vote, that should probably be enough to win.

Just tired and typed it wrong. I thought it was big. We were in the front of an ambulance with the same crew and arguing about Obama 4 years ago and he missed the exit. Same situation we were “talking over each other” with the same guy in the back and he was shouting at us.. “DON”T MISS THE EXIT”. We had a good laugh. My Dem driver just blurted out that he was voting Romney and I was almost speechless. He said he reserves the right to rub my nose in it for 4yrs if Romney cannot fix the economy. I said fair is fair, I have harangued him for 4 years.
