The One's integrity and compassion for America is as vacuous
as is his transparency, accountability, and documentation.

I wish our president was just vacuous, but he’s not, he’s dangerous and an enemy of the state.

Empty chair, empty suit, empty rhetoric.
Obama has more empties than a sports bar after the Super Bowl.

It is often difficult to tell where incompetence ends and evil intentions begin. The result is the same, regardless of the cause.

It would be difficult to improve upon a picture of our fearless leader beneath the listing for “vacuous” in the dictionary.

I saw a posting on Twitter about Justin Bieber. He had put a sign up in his cell that said:
“Free J.B.”
Unfortunately, his cellmate is dyslexic.

Setting: The ridge of a hill overlooking Hollywood and the surrounding community; our young hero stands with his mentor as they survey the landscape, knowing that they must descend down into a dangerous place on a critical mission. The mentor ominously warns our young hero: "Hollywood, center of the entertainment industry. You will never find a more vacuous hive of hate and hypocrisy."

Hollywood, Propaganda and Liberal Politics

Obama’s credibility is low
Despite his vacuous speeches
Those regaining consciousness
Include some of the leeches

They signed up at the website
To get healthcare for free-
But they got a quote and a bill
Just the same as you or me...

They thought it was a piñata
Filled with treasure and bread-
They broke it open and revealed
It was a Trojan horse instead...

Thank you! When I saw on the news that he made that dumb climate statement, I howled with glee for several minutes-he certainly was channeling Carter...

I don’t get much interested in his personal life, whether he or his friends are homosexual, heterosexual or asexual, because there are so many stupid public statements of his out there now...

That said, if I were the first wookie, I’d be boffing a good-looking guy on the sly-it isn’t like the first idiot is going to go Bill Clinton on her-he probably doesn’t even know where Ft. Marcy Park is...

I am all for going green, but to give up toilet paper is extreme. I do use the reusable grocery bags from Wegmans for everything, including groceries, but only because I like them better than plastic bags.

I’m really into conservation of natural resources, but reusing a thing like that is entirely too unsanitary to even think about-I mean, moss or leaves are what you do if you find yourself using the loo in the woods sans TP...

I use the cloth bags for mostly non-food purchases-sometimes I might put cans, or boxes/bags of dry stuff like rice, dog food, etc in them, but never anything frozen or wet-ewww!
