Regards the flipping of the bird:

Here is my plan — I have been rehearsing it.

If anyone asks me anything about Obama, I am going to scratch my face or wipe my lip with the butter finger while I am replying.

I’ll be polite in my speech, as he was — but give the finger at the same time.

He got by with it. I think I can, it too.

How ‘bout joinin’ me. It could be fun.

It's not like everyone didn't realize what a 'low class' thug he is anyway--with his friendship with Wright, Ayres, his 'lipstick on a pig' comment, his 'rotten, stinking fish' comment, his unbelievable silence on the Sarah Palin halloween hanging effigy.

You can add his throwing the rose on the 9/11 memorial site.

I can’t accept this. I am sick with anger, fear, and shock.

Always remember, this nation had to endure Carter for them to appreciate Reagan. I'm hopeful that when the pendulum swings back, we will be ready to demonstrate how government should be run.

Noonan wasn’t a fan of Nancy (ref. having read Noonan’s book) so I would expect silence from her.

We have two that just need a little more seasoning.

Palin or Jindal, take your pick.

Let’em run their respective states clean things up and get more exec experience.

In the meantime we need to start purging the RINO’s. Only two years to go to get rid of some of them.

Rahm Emanuel looked like he was standing in a hole.

The legend of Rahm Emanuel, who has just accepted an offer to become Barack Obama's chief of staff, begins with a missing finger and a dead fish.

Washington buzz has long had it that Emanuel, 48, lost half a finger on his right hand to a bomb while serving in the Israeli army. Emanuel is also said to have mailed a smelly dead fish to a campaign pollster unlucky enough to upset him.

The bomb-blast anecdote is entirely untrue - Emanuel, who has been the No 3 Democrat in the US House of Representatives since last year, severed his finger in a childhood meat-slicing accident. The widely reported rotting fish tale has never been confirmed.

But those colourful stories are a vital part of the take-no-prisoners image Emanuel has crafted for himself during more than two decades in politics. And his volunteer service in Israel during the 1990s Gulf War is no fiction, with the Jewish press hailing Emanuel's ascension as a sign that Israel will have its own man in the Obama White House.

Though his combative reputation has won him acolytes and detractors in almost equal numbers, even Emanuel's critics admit that his political savvy and policy expertise make him a natural partner for Obama.

Like the president-elect, Emanuel is a Chicago native with a strong connection to the city's political elite. He and Obama also have both inspired characters on TV's The West Wing, with Emanuel providing the model for wunderkind aide Josh Lyman.

Emanuel was among the earliest converts to Bill Clinton's presidential campaign in 1992, serving as a senior fundraiser and strategist. His trademark, even then, was a brash style that often involved raised voices and profanity but also got difficult jobs done. When Tony Blair appeared with Clinton at the height of the Lewinsky sex scandal in 1998, Emanuel is reported to have offered a typically terse warning: "Don't fuck it up."

Well, like we all said, give the Dem a couple of years and they will self implode. They always do. Heck, in the very first conference of the President-elect, he shows no restraint. Sad. This man does not represent anything of the Black Man in me, and is nothing to aspire for, IMO.

> the media will keep on tanking for the future president because he is sooo eloquent <

I'm not so sure. Did you hear the comments from Evan Thomas and Jon Meacham that Rush played today? These two MSM bigwigs are already talking about The Big 0 as being "creepy."

The media love an enthralling narrative. They love to tell a story about a politician's exciting climb to glory, they marvel at his hubris, then they love to see him fall. It's great drama. With only a little exaggeration, one might say this oft-practiced media riff echoes the tragedies of Euripides!

(Though of course, the narrative sometimes becomes a melodrama instead of a tragedy. But I digress.)

Conclusion:

I fully expect the MSM eventually will enter a "tear down" phase in their coverage of The 0ne.

My main question is, How long will it take? As regards Pres. B.J. Clinton, I seem to recall that the tear-down began with his expensive haircut on the runaway at LAX, and it intensified during Hilary's healthcare fiasco -- although it didn't reach true fever pitch until the Monica revelations in early 1998.

So based on the Clinton precedent, I won't be a bit surprised if the MSM gives Big 0 some very rough treatment NLT the year 2013.

(Maybe too late to block 0's re-election in 2012. But at least it should help the 'Pubs make a respectable come-back in 2016!)

“lack of upbringing”

When you take a look at how he was raised it truly was sad. He was marinated in the Communist Agenda from a very early age. I’m sure he’s never seen the goodness of humanity. That is the truly scary thing about him.

This is why I missed the One’s press conference today and can’t watch the news anymore. I’m watching a movie right now. From now on it’s movies, sit-coms, sports, or listening to Rush and Sean.

Mrs. Reagan is an elegant lady. Obama isn’t used to being around a lady of class and true character. Michelle could only wish to be half as classy as Mrs. Reagan. It’s going to be a long four years.
