There is a great gibbosity of illegal invaders at our southern border will all manner of disease, terrorists and criminals.

Welcome to the great ‘fundamental transformation’!

Didn’t most of us like the way things were with freedom and liberty?

Who wanted to move away from this?

Sorry, delving into a gibbosity of commentary here…

Bill Clinton’s most troubling gibbosity
Was tamed by an intern’s generosity
Though she found it quite small
It made a a left towards the wall
Peyronie’s is a real curiosity

Another reason impeaching Obama is extremely ill-advised, the Left is begging for it.

It is absurd to even consider impeachment. The left is begging for it because they know it is only because of racism...everything in the world is because of racism - even global warming is now because of racism, or will be when they decide to declare it so.

Clinton was impeached 16 years ago when there was still some room for folks to vote according to values - that ended with the 2008 campaign. Now it is all about left or right - middle of the road democrats who used to occasionally vote republican have disappeared. Everything goes - smoking pot in the white house, rumors of the pres being gay, the disgusting lyrics of rap music that the pres adores - the ever increasing debt - nothing matters to dems anymore. They will continue to support dems until the economy completely collapses and then somehow blame it on racism and republicans.

The minute the Right attempts to discredit Obama, the ranks will close around him and the press will step up their protection. He is doing a pretty dang good job of discrediting himself to the rank and file. Impeachment will be trumpeted as the EVIL yes, racist, republicans trying to destroy a black president. As soother and neo have pointed out THAT will motivate the base, that is blacks, to come out to show support for him. It might feel good, but it will blow up in our faces. Anything remotely smacking of the right is reviled in this country by the popular culture and that is where the rank and file take their cues.

Of course global warming is racist. If there were white people on islands that are sinking, we’d all drive hybrids. ;-)

I agree-it is the only method of extracting donatiions they have right now. He is acting like an employee who is covertly looking for another job-using up personal leave time without a good reason, paperwork turned in late or not at all, becoming secretive and withdrawn from other employees, avoiding time consuming job duties-all the signs are there, so let him run with it-maybe the jerk will quit like Nixon did. Either way, it isn’t endearing him to anyone...

I agree that many are seeing him as distracted or unwilling to do the work he needs to be doing - wanting to play golf, vacation and party instead, but us forcing the issue won’t work - the dems will double down and he will know he can go even farther with his outragious actions. The dems are saying let all the children of south american come here and we will feed, clothe, and house them.... they are insane - we can’t afford that - dems really are idiots

oh he won’t quit! he will extract every single benefit, every perk, everything he CAN get out of this gig, before he loafs off into the distance. He will always be popular and in demand, but he’s especially so bc of the station he holds now. They will need to be pried out of the WH.

There’s a gibbosity on DC
That is totally out of hand-
Everyone bitches about it
But dislikes taking a stand

Those we sent to congress
Need to dismantle the thing,
Otherwise they may not like
What this November will bring

They need to be out of work,
Unable to get anything free-
With a nearly-empty wallet
To pay bills, like you and me...

This is my favorite Sweet tune-

“Love is like oxygen-
You get too much, you get too high
Not enough and you’re gonna die
Love gets you high...”

I’m all for letting him continue to act just like an employee who is putting his resume out there and using his accrued personal time to go to interviews at other companies-an employee I’d be glad to see leave-so let him act like an ass and when his contract is up, he’s out with a bad reference. When someone who is bad for business is trashing themselves, don’t interfere...

Send back as many mojados as possible, then when he is gone and liberals have been eaten out of house and home by those illegals, we can probably ship the rest of the ungrateful bastards to their own or some other third world hellhole with no interference-I suppose I’m an ethnic traitor, but I’ve been brought up fresh out of sympathy for those people...

As an ex-prez, I don’t think he’ll ever be as popular as Bill Clinton, because he isn’t as engaging and smart-he isn’t as good a speaker, either no matter what his worshippers tell him.

The Clintons grabbed silverware and stuff when they were pried out, so I suppose the O’s will, too-they’ll need a small closed horse trailer just for Michelle and her wardrobe of trophy draperies and sofa skins...

Absolutely-fear is the last lever they have to pry donations from rich and semi-rich liberals who are afraid of having their better-than-everyone-else status taken from them. And if he keeps f***ing up, even that might not be effective...

When my ancestors came to Mexico from Spain, it was Spanish territory. By the time they came to what is now Texas, they were intermarried with native Americans and interested in staying away from Spanish govt-they fought for Teas independence, too, but they became Americans when Texas joined the US, been American ever since...
