Didn’t Hillary have regular “conversations” with Eleanor Roosevelt?
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.
How much cowardice does it take to take a verbal shot at an elderly woman?
I definately feel your pain!,,I’ve been sick at my stomach since the election!,,I just can’t believe the government would let his VOTER FRAUD get by!,,and even more appauling is not ALLOWING the backbone of our country VOTE!!,,
If it hasn’t been apparent before it definately is now,,Democrats can’t get any lower!,,when they elected HUSSEIN OBAMA,,they scrapped the bottom of the barrel!!
You can add his throwing the rose on the 9/11 memorial site.
No kidding!!!! This is truly a nightmare.
Why didn't he use Hillary as his example for his 'imaginary seances'???
Clearly, this ‘fast tracker’ is out of his league.
What a loser. He isn’t fit to shine her shoes.
I wonder what Peggy “Unpatriotic Disgrace” Noonan thinks of this vile creep now? Maybe she didn’t like Nancy and doesn’t care.
Rahm Emanuel looked like he was standing in a hole.
I live near Philadelphia. I haven't seen a ray of sunlight since Monday afternoon. Rain in the forecast for tomorrow.
Only one way I can describe it: I feel like I'm in London during the days of Jack the Ripper
Will there be a White House Christmas tree next year
and if so will it be the first time his kids have seen one?
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.
I was calling him Obamanazi. Then a friend in an email made some Roman Empire references and I decided that, to compare him with the Emperor he most reminds me of, I’ll be calling him Obigula.
Well at least something positive comes from this!
Dude - you are a GENIUS. I’ll pass that along to my friends on the email network. Maybe everyone else will, too.
The media will help him so much he will be looking better than JFK.
Anyone who takes out after a widow is going to get an ass-whipping from God- so says the Old Testament.
I look forward to seeing this.
Has everyone else lost their memory?
It was Hillary Rodham who was consulting with Eleanor Roosevelt’s spirit in the White House just a few years ago.
It was also rumored that Nancy had sex with Sinatra. That rumor was pretty much fact with the mainstream media.
Hillary “channeled” Elanor Roosevelt.
Madam Rodham is the looney one, ballet boy.
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.
Of course the MSM will ignore that FACT!!!
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."
I heard Sarah Palin has returned to Alaska to begin a new career, yes shes going into the adult entertainment industry starring in films produced by VPILF Enterprises.
Is this true?
Well then, we disagree.
Who was the last person to say, "Ask not what this country can do for for you but what you can do for this country?"
WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD A DEMOCRAT SAY ANYTHING REMOTELY CLOSE TO THAT?
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.
It was Hillary Rodham who was consulting with Eleanor Roosevelts spirit in the White House just a few years ago.
Anyone care to bet that the MSM will NOT make this correction???
Expect Micheal Reagan to take the President-elect to task on his show.
As classy as we expected. Even his own voters must be realizing how The Affirmative Action President will govern.
I figured everyone would remember that golden oldie.
The ironing of it all, is that Hillary was the one having made up conversations with dead people!
He sure does have problem with women. I think that is a Muslim attitude.
Considering what Mrs. Reagan recently went through (a fall), this is beyond crass.
Keep it up Hussein, your favorability ratings will not break 10% by spring.
Well his own voters are starting to wake up from an Obama dream world.
Mrs. Reagan had her nasty fall the same week my season citizen mother had a fall. This is Obama’s way of “flipping the bird” to Mrs. Reagan, these comments.
Ya, he do gots class...
That youngster has a lot to learn.
What a complete, F’n idiot.
How quickly he showed us.
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.)
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.
He surrounds himself with people who find this funny.
As in his minister who said, “God Damn America!”
He is unleased and the media laughed.
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.
