Um, what exactly did this man and his cadre of buffoons expect?

He’s the leader of the free world.

He can’t afford the luxury of being “overwhelmed”. This is further proof that he and his administration just had no clue what they were getting themselves into.

It’s not just enough to win a campaign, and you can’t run a country with speeches rife with rhetoric.

I guess I would be tired too if my goal was to demolish a 233 year old capitalistic democracy into a fully functioning socialist regime in a 5 week period.

Mr. Obama thought that running the government was going to be as smooth and easy as running his “well-oiled machine” of a campaign.

If he can’t even accomplish getting dinner and gifts right with another family, what the hell kind of faith should we have in his ability to hold the office?

We’re in trouble...

France and Germany your only allies???
You retard how many have they lost in support of YOUR initiative on the war on terror. I served in the Royal Marines in support of this Coalition and if True Americans were as you are I would have gladly served with the Taliban against you.
The French Government today raised its Terror alert from RUN to HIDE. The only two higher levels being, SURRENDER and COLLABORATE.Precautions being taken follow the complete destruction of the National WHITE FLAG PRODUCTION FACTORY outside Paris, thus effectively crippling Frances military Capability.

I believe we are viewing Obumo’s first-hand disdain for caucasians from any country. They must swoon and suck up his spit to be treated with some half ass faux respect.

America now has a truly racist tribal unit in the White House. I hope the POS, who voted for this disgrace are in the soup line for infinity.

Good point, FRiend. BO left himself wide open once again. If he's tired from ‘lack of experience’, that demonstrates what fools the rats were for electing him. All other considerations are even worse for them.

I realize that some conservatives think it's pointless to whittle away at BO’s image, but it worked on Bush didn't it? Bush would have been impeached by now if he had all the baggage BO has.

We might not have the firepower of the left wing media, but every little bit helps. I accidentally got into an a debate with a democrat car repairman a few days ago. I don't pick fights with guys who fix my car, but it erupted anyway.

He was completely on the defensive when I mentioned how the only guys who want to raise taxes are the tax cheats. He fled to the ‘everybody does it’ defense. I mentioned the audit of Paula Jones and Linda Tripp. He shrugged that off as ‘they deserved it’. I mentioned the seven year audit of Jerry Falwell and his vindication. He said that Falwell made too many enemies.

OK, so it's the ‘everybody does it defense’ right? This is how you turn the tables on them. I told him that Hannity and Boortz deliberately overpay taxes to avoid audits. And I challenged him to mention one Republican who was caught cheating. Was Romney caught cheating on taxes, I asked. Name one. And name one example of a democrat being harassed by an audit. He had no answer. Sure, he did not capitulate on the spot — only liars do that. But you crack their defense mechanism.

[If he was informed, he could have mentioned that Nixon wanted to sic the IRS on his enemies, but never forget that Nixon was forced out by his own party. Republicans don't put up with tyrants while democrats elevate them.]

He thought it would always be a “Slappin Some Skin Session or just a Shuckin, Jivin and Guffawin Demonstration.”

Obumo will fail, due to his inablity to ever grasp the true meaning of what America stands for in life.

Yes Obumo was good at instigating the minority communities about the evil caucasians in America, who cused them to fail in life.

Obumo Zero is nothing more than a mulatto trouble maker, who thrives off the uneducated/hate filled malcontents living on the gubmint tit.

One can dress an idiot in a suit, but he still remains an idiot.

Yes, what are we the Conservative American People going to do about it?? We will use the legal channels of grievance and petition for a recall and or impeachment.

One good man or woman can make a difference in life. Secession is another form of expression for Americans in various conservative states to express our grief.

Perhaps we could all become (community organizers)for it seems to be a ticket to success.

P.S. what are you ideas my friend??????

We in the UK are like yourselves suffering from a very unpopular form of government, thrust upon us as you by those who wanted change just for changes sake. We also like you have the expression “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.
Unfortunately some people never heed what grandma says and rush in.
Obama will not like us in the UK as for what he believes we did to his kinfolk in days of yore. That alone should ring warning bells as as the most senior politician in the world he should be above petty grievances. As he seems not to be, can we expect the United States Navy to be smuggling waves of MAU MAU onto our remote beeches, will the same be shelling Hartlepool soon? and do we need to have another burning the white house down session? Mind you I think that if we did try and burn the White House down again, providing the Kenyan was at home,we would have to fight Americans to strike the match. So commiserations to you all but there must be comfort in those few words “ONLY FOUR YEARS” or IMPEACHMENT. Is binden related to BIN......LA......DEN, and why does Obama party for? I did not think Muslims drank alcohol

Get a grip, O Disturbed One. You chose to start this bullshit by responding to something that I said to someone else. Now you advise me to stop posting to you and get off the thread? Go pound sand, you freak.

Yep. I responded in Post 484 to your comment on the open Forum where you are complaining that it is "a shame" that other FReepers consider this a worthwhile thread while you consider it a "piece of garbage".

It is a darn shame that a fine column written by Thomas Sowell and posted here in FR receives 30 replies and this piece of garbage tabloid article now has over 400, .... JustaDumbBlonde

When your opinions are challenged, you play the victim. Some sarcasm on your part is O.K. Some sarcasm on my part is "rude".

It's O.K. for you to complain that FReepers that had responded to this thread were flocking to "garbage" but, when the international importance of the thread is debated with you, you turn into a Drama Queen.

You say you don't want to discuss the issues of the thread with me any more so I say, "Fine. Then don't reply to me any more. And, if this thread is such 'a shame' and ' piece of garbage', there are dozens of other threads on FR that are probably to your liking."

Then, you reply to me AGAIN and get even more ballistic.

If you post on the FR open Forum, your views will be challenged.

If you can't tolerate your views being challenged, don't post in the open Forum.

That's the way political Forums on the Internet work.

If you get insulted because your views are challenged after "something that you said to someone else" then use FReep Mail. Then, the discussion will just between you and that other person and nobody else on the open Forum will challenge the opinions that you seems totally incapable of defending by means other than playing the victim and throwing a temper tantrum.

I served in the Royal Marines in support of this Coalition

Thank you for your service and thank you to the rest of Great Britain.

Through the intoxication of the minds of the masses, both in America and, you must admit, Britain and the rest of Europe, Barack Obama has ridden a wave of irrational enthusiasm to become President of the United States.

The irrationality of the masses cannot be seen more clearly than in the fact that this man and this Administration does not realize that Great Britain and the United States have a special relationship like no other in the 20th and 21st Centuries.

If there is a Western Civilization today, it is in thanks not only to the Pax Americana but also to Britain's Finest Hour without which the Pax Americana would never have been possible.

And how many vacation days has this guy already taken? As I recall, more than any other president ever. If he can’t handle the stress and strain of the office, and the economic mess he created, then he should resign.

And the word "overwhelmed" was quoted, as if someone in the Obama admin was giving it as an excuse for their ineptness.

My apologies to you, I had read a few threads and it seemed in a lot of them that the people in the States assume that we in this country endorsed Obama as our choice.
This is not true, the leadership may have ,but then again they would he is their opposite number in this country.
We are as fed up with Brown as you seem to be with the Kenyan. We all thought when he came to the states(Brown) they would MAU MAU MOWSEY on down to the coral and be big buddies. Just goes to show the old British adage is true..........You can take the man out the jungle .....but you cant take the jungle out of the man.

That’s what friends do!
From the feed back I been getting on these threads I think the target for our next assault on enemies of our state’s should be the Press or at least the press that’s been working for the Kenyan man apparently most of the UK was behind him. I got to tell you most = Gordon’s Crew, and the rest of us were struggling to know who he was until a few days before his election.
We don’t vote in our own elections so why we should stick our shonks into yours is beyond me. Most Brits are so politically naive they think OBAMA is a STATE.

And its Monday now in the UK and bed time. All of you at NORAD keep your eyes peeled no nodding of whilst I’m asleep in my bed. Tell OBAMA to keep the noise down if its party night as I am tired I do actually do something. If he’s working late and his missus is at a loose end she can come around my house. But only if I get a Helicopter. I know Mombasa well so we can talk about the K boats or tusks. Obama might even do me a wood carving.
So unlike Vietnam I will say
GOOOOOOOD NIGHT AMERICA.

I wonder if polio-ridden FDR was “too tired” to treat Churchill’s office with the respect it deserves.

He has a chip on his shoulder because his father and paternal grandfather were communist Kenyans. Not even Hillary Clinton would stoop this low.
