Our hauteur asshole in chief ignored a written warning from Saudia Arabia about our dead bomber. ...Dear God. Russia and Saudi Arabia warned us and that jerkoff let another four Americans die on his watch.

I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment, but "hauteur" is a noun, not an adjective.

The hauteur, the asshole in chief....

I cannot believe how angry I feel about this. His basic job requirement of keeping us safe is not even on his radar. Better to show our love for terrorists by giving them welfare than throwing them out.l....in his book of tricks, anyway. I can’t even see straight this morning.

Hauteur and Hate-against-Americans can be defined by the actions of Obama
who (for example) has protected the terrorist-murderer Hasan
[ Army Major Hasan was on the Presidential Transition Team
and served on the Homeland Security Policy Institute’s
presidential transition task force
]

and at the same time the Obama Caliphate has continued to pay $23,000 a Month
to the Mosque of Ft. Hood Terrorist-Supporter Al-Awlaki
.

..or.. by Obama's refusal to heed the Russians or Saudi Arabia
about the Boston terrorists

..or.. or by Obama's total protection of the terrorists involving the Cole
Hearing in Cole Attack Is Delayed Again, This Time by E-mail Security Issue (Al Nashiri)
"Obama Obama shifts FBI from Counter Terrorism to Fraud"


"Victims of Cole bombing upset
"A top officer slammed Obama's decision to seek the withdrawal of charges against the 2000 suspected U.S.S. Cole ship bomber."


"Impeach Obama Says Sister of Cole Sailor Killed in Terror Attacks
"The sister of Seaman James McDaniels, a sailor killed in the terror attack on the U.S.S. Cole wants President Barack Hussein Obama impeached
over his decision to withdraw charges against the al Qaeda mastermind of the attack."


"Mother of USS Cole Sailor Declines Obama-meet, Says "I Voted for the Wrong Person"
"After Obama dropped the charges against the suspect in the bombing of the USS Cole,
he asked the families of the victims in that tragedy to meet with him.
One mother refused, and now says,"I voted for the wrong person."

John F'in Kerry is almost as famous for his hauteur as he is for marrying wealthy widows. You can't really blame him for having a crappy personality. That paper-cut he got in Vietnam led to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and changed him from a modest, kind fellow into the patrician a$$hole he is today.

By coincidence, my blood pressure is a bit elevated as well, with an occasional irregular heartbeat thrown in just for fun. I have my first appointment with a cardiologist this morning.

I misused the WFTD, so here is my real homework.
Let's hope the AAPS can defeat the MOC mess monster which is a fraud and an expensive hauteur to boot.

Apparently this morning in Massatwochits, Dem Ed "Eeyore" Markey got the nod to run for John 'Effin' Kerry's Senate Seat. On the Republican side, Gabriel "DemDonation" Gomez, who has not only donated to the Dems and to Obama, but sent an email to Gov Cadilllac Deval Patrick asking for the appointment so he can help support Obama's agendas.

Mass is doomed, either way.

hauteur

Gasper the ghost is a hauteur as in hauteur houses. ‘course it could mean arrogance since he does have an up-turned nose at everything. Could mean the folks from Terre Haute (Terry Hauteurs?) too but they all seemed pretty much just folks to me.
