Having elected a clean and articulate negro — one who could never be criticized for anything — the Left was then able to orchestrate the destruction of the country in a very soigne fashion.

I remember reading a few years ago that that was common in China.

There is no amount of money you could pay me to have me live in NYC.

The President, so soave and soigne
The lead actor in a horrible play
Crappy plot, bad direction
Can’t wait for the next election
When the Obama’s finally go their merry way

Most cities and towns fine people for urinating on a public street-even between parked cars. I’m an earth mother type, committed to a natural lifestyle-but that is going way too far for me. There are disposable diapers available that are biodegradable-toileting au naturel is for roughing it on a camping trip in Big Bend, not everyday life in enclaves of civilization...

Cloudy and humid, with rain and a cold front on the way to set a new record-I love global warming...

Now we find that Obamascare
Is not so carefully done-
The lack of sense and vision
Has caused even Baucus to run

A soigne and lengthy document
Does not mean it works at all-
That is only throwing crap
To hope it sticks to a wall

The genie is out of the bottle
And will not fit back inside-
All that’s left for Obama’s bunch
Is to just jump ship or hide...

Gone is the day when character and integrity matter -- now, a soigne Media persona goes in as the primary factor to consider a leader...

Although the bombs were effective, it wasn’t a totally soigne job:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3011538/posts

This kid doesn’t sound like the brightest bulb in the room. 1) casually walks away from the scene (instead of acting startled or frantic)
2) parties after the bombing (appearing detached at the news)
3) tells the hijacked driver he committed the crime
4) has the driver remove $800 (instead of having cash on hand ahead of time).

What irks me is this guy had a whole town hiding in fear.
He is evil yes, but pathetic.
