That is putting it kindly. I have heard Democrats use a not so nice analogy. He is fulfilling some ugly stereotypes with his lavish lifestyle I have not heard mentioned in decades.

Barack Obama has not yet moved into the category of the late-night patsy that Jimmy Carter became...on the other hand Carter was never stupid enough to grandstand in front the nation insisting he was certainly in charge of all that was going on and would take care of everything for the country when in fact there's virtually nothing he can do about the situation - he'll hit that category soon....

He is talking about a tipping point. He is not there yet because of his skin tone and because most Americans are idiot sheep who watch TV and are brainwashed by TV including Fox/Saudia.

Most Americans will glady trade liberty and freedom for cable/sat TV and ball games.

Would not surprise me in the least. One thing I find ironic is Obama's dislike and blatant dissing of the British is coming home to bite him, curtsy of British Petroleum. I'll bet BP ruining his presidency is driving him insane.

The only British thing/person he didn’t have a problem with was Paul McCartney! He sat there and preened and smirked at McCartney’s stinky comments about Pres. Bush! He sang and laughed and carried on because Paul McCartney was fawning all over him (and Michelle!), he didn’t ever, ever make as big a fuss over any other First Lady (or President, Dem. or Repub.) before!

I would be thrilled if Obummer spent every waking moment snorting coke, guzzling booze, snarfing wygu beef, truffles and beluga caviar and singing and partying with celebrities. I’d love it if he never sobered up enough to ever get to any of his presidential duties. Financially, I’d vote him at least a million a day party budget and throw in construction of a free bathhouse on the premises for his Chicago buddies. These expenditures would represent a major bargain and save the country untold billions and heartache to keep him in perpetual party mode. We would be A LOT better off in every way versus what’s actually been happening.

His Carter moment is nearing as far as the media is concerned. For normal people, it arrived a year ago last January.

Iranian militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979 and held 52 officials and workers hostage for 444 days, while the United States was helpless to free them.

HELPLESS???? The US was NOT helpless. We just had an idiot as POTUS.

the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico that dominated television coverage and was into its second month with no quick solution in sight. * They haven't built a popular new television program around it -- yet.

Somebody is not paying attention. The video feed from the ROVs is the most engrossing thing to watch since the raw video out of Baghdad in 2003.

Obama, the MSM, and the Democrats are still celebrating shoving ObamaCare down the throats of the American people.

It was all based on lies, lies, and more lies. "Cost savings." "Better care." "Keep your own health plan." "Coverage for all Americans." "No rationing." "Reduces the deficit."

We all knew it was a lie, but then again, most of the people on this forum have an IQ way above 70 and are/or are not ideological Communists.

Obama-ding-dong preaches Government for everything. It gives him and his thugs more power, more adulation, and more vengeance against those they hate.

But, Government is very limited. There isn't a "Ministry of Oil Rig Explosion Fixers" out there - although many in the public think there is. Obama has made the situation much worse by his inaction, and by not allowing BP to burn off oil or use the type of chemical dispersant needed because of his slavish devotion and his party's to the environmentalist wack jobs.

Now we are supposed to believe that Obama and his minions, who can't control a single oil spill, are capable, responsible, and intellectually prepared enough to take over our nation's Heath Care?

Europe and Canada are exploring ABANDONING their grand Government Health Care Giveaway, and yet we are adopting it.

If the GOP gets even House in these elections, they need to shut down then entire United States government budget process until ObamaCare is killed - PERIOD!

I think so.
Rumor has it that he's developed a Slice and now has the Yips when putting. Plus, he's starting to use a 1 Iron off the tee.

When all that happens, it's pretty much over for you.

This is when you know you are truly harpooned, when your problem has become someone else’s meal ticket.

and yet, somehow, the republicans will allow themselves to take the blame for it. Heck, by NOV, the repubs will be blaming themselves!

As one freeper stated in another thread, “they always manage to become the long black hair in the spaghetti.”

Right now, I don’t give a crap about the politics of this!
I want them to plug the damn hole!

I had the same thought. The fact that the WAPO is now openly making comparisons to Carter is not insignificant.

...exactly!....Broder has been a WAPO mainstay for decades...he’s seen tons of lib Dems come and go...I would have thought he would have been the first to deny any mention of Carter in the same breath as Obama.

“Obama keeps popping up in new settings, sounding as if he is in command, and he has refused to be confined to the White House as Carter was by the hostage crisis.”

Oh, and that is what a good leader of men is made of!

They are continuing to fondle Barry in hopes that HE will rise.

Great catch. Imagine cutting it into a number of five or ten second clips and intespersing them with pictures of the oil spill, dying, oiled pelicans, combat in Afganistan, and illegal aliens crossing the border. Also throw in some pics of really, obscenely opulent and ostentatious WH dinners, like the one for Calderone. Then put the whole thing together in a really great, accurate negative ad about the Illegal.

I wonder how many are puking as they realize what a mistake it was to claim this (at minimum) fifty percent Caucasian as the,”First Black President”. I suspect quite a few have realized that “cool” is not what we need in the white house.
