If this dopey quote had come out of Dubya’s mouth, tell me it wouldn’t already be a slogan emblazoned on a t-shirt at Zazzle underneath a Bush/chimp photo comparison: As the president walked around the restaurant, some cordoned-off reporters shouted out to him questions, including one about the war in Iraq. But the president was in no mood today to discuss the issue with reporters in that setting. He ignored questions for a bit, then turned to the reporters. “We’re buying shrimp, guys,” he said, smiling. “Come on.”

This needs to be on the top headline at Drudge followed by news of the bombs going off in Iraq:

Mr President, Today Al-Qa’ida showed that it has the strength to strike all over Iraq by making a string of attacks that left at least 56 dead, half of them policemen and soldiers, and 250 wounded, what are your comments?

“We’re buying shrimp guys, come on”

The same MSM that fully investigated Joe the plumber Wurzelbacher in 24 hours has given Baraq a lifetime free pass.
The only way this changes is if Hillary! runs in the 012 primaries.

So, Imam Obama can’t buy shrimp and talk war at the same time? So much for multitasking...

We're better off if Obama runs in 2012. It took 18 months for a large enough chunk of the public to realize what an incompetent dud Obama is and drop his approvals to a point where he's politically impotent.

I'm in no mood to ride that learning curve again.

Shrimps on one side, waffles on the other!

Poor Obama, he just can’t get a break.

Odds are better that the shrimp were farmed in Thailand or Costa Rica than Gulf caught.

Well, I guess his handlers warned him about slurping any more ice cream on his sixth vacation while troops are dying in the 120 degree heat in Afghanistan.

This would be all over the news if it were Bush — and 10% unemployment, verge of double dip, 2 wars, etc.

"Come on guys, they're just American soldiers dying. We're buying shrimp here. Us, the royals!"


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

The MSM is a joke.

This would be inescapably obvious to all if the MSM weren't holding the microphone.

He’s counting on two-plus years of himself, minority dems in congress and the MSM blaming republicans for everything that goes wrong (because as minority party they somehow stopped dems from saving teh country, now as leaders it’s 100% their fault).

Embrace this now, it will happen, develop effective counter to it now. More than one. Deploy it. These people are an open book as to what they are going to try.

All the GOP has to do is send the bastard tax cut proposal after tax cut proposal.

Let him veto them and then explain to the people suffering in the Obama depression why.

He’ll veto it saying the repubs are just doing it as a political tactic against him. MSM will parrot it. Besides he will say he won’t cut taxes on “the rich” - code for whites.

MSM won’t question him.

Develop another counter tactic.

It'll work, trust me.

It's kind of late and short notice right now, but whatever it is will have to incorporate this guy.

When is the MSM going to put this idiot’s feet to the fire in a nationally televised press conference?

Yes people WILL want their money back.

Barack will say he won’t sign the tax cuts because it gives most of the money back to the wrong people.

That’s what he’s saying now and it’s placating enough that he doesn’t have to worry.

If they don’t buy it he will blame it pn repubs not passing any more unemployment aid, not passing makework stimulus giveaways, not allowing more aid programs through even though there are no corresponding cuts to make them revenue neutral.

Trust me with all the MSM help this will work on most sheeple.

You don’t eat shrimp on the Vineyard - especially at Nancy’s in Oak Bluffs. Shrimp is not a native product to the area...have Scallops or Clams - but shrimp? Big no-no that tourists from the mid-west think is fresh (No offense to mid-westerners)

I’ll just assume he had a cup of New England clam chowder when he was in the Gulf last week and flotus engulfed a nice dinner of Haggis when she was in Spain....

The MSM did the same thing with RWR, and he got around them.

But NOTHING will work unless the GOP stands up and makes a case.
