Freepers sock drawers are so nicely arranged!
They can both live the rest of their lives, sunning themselves on Rio beaches wearing matching neon-pink thongs.
Delicate diplomatic tango today. Brazil abstained on Libya vote, cancelled questions from press at this appearance. Obama's public speech in Rio changed to private venue after riots protesting his appearance.
The question is why is Hillary putting herself through the meat-grinder these last few weeks, pulling Obama’s fat out the fire just so he can take the credit?
Basketball game starts in 15 minutes.
NO BLOOD FOR OIL.
What’s the exit strategy?
I wish the people there would hold up signs, Liar, you aren’t even an American, go rot you lying PIG!!!
Tired of the respect he is getting because he is our President..
Sorry, there are some dog turds on my front lawn that need scooping up. No time.
I swear she is dressing Obama down just by her mannerism and posture.
(AFP) - Police fired rubber bullets and used tear gas to break up a demonstration outside the US consulate in Rio de Janeiro on Friday, as US President Barack Obama prepares to visit the country.
About 300 people had gathered at the site when Brazilian Military Police showed up and tried to break up the demonstration.
Police cracked down on the crowd after protesters hurled a Molotov cocktail at the consulate door, the O Globo newspaper reported on its website.
“I was in the center of the protest when people began to run and I heard shots,” said AFP photographer Vanderlei Almeida. “I had to get out of there because it was hard to breathe.”
Almeida was struck by two rubber bullets — one hit him in the leg, and the other in his stomach.
Several protesters were detained, Almeida said.
Obama arrives in Brazil on an official Saturday and will meet President Dilma Rousseff in the capital Brasilia.
On Sunday, he is scheduled to deliver a speech in Rio’s Municipal Theater after canceling a public speech in the city’s town square.
Brazilian authorities have laid out a heavy security presence for Obama’s two-day visit to South America’s largest nation, and police in Rio had closed numerous streets from midnight Thursday in preparation.
Teleprompters all fired up and ready, or will there be a lot of “...uh...um...ah...” as he speaks from the empty suit?
They just lost the feed, “Video Alarm Detected” was the last image.
"Barak go home"
Feed back up. Obama speaking about U.S. relations with Brazil.
Its back, the bama is orating.
Any shoe throwing?
O’Bummer is growing a mustache? ;-)
Sounds like his usual tripe.
They love us! < /Sarc>
I did not hear anything new on Libya.
Did I hear him wrong? Did he say .. That I share with my citizens of the United States.. He um then said share with my fellow citizens.. I may have misheard him. Looks like a late night in Brazil with no time to shave. I love the nightlife, I like to boogie..

I know it’s only 1120 AM here, but my Scotch bottle is calling. YAWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.
Where? Inside Libya. Was that an INTERNATIONAL crime? Uh, no.
Hence, these creeps are using common antipathy for a creep like Qadaffi in order to establish a precedent giving the ICC jurisdiction within sovereign nations.
I call that a bad idea. Qadaffi is playing the part for all it's worth.
Uhh ... I’ll take “Be off!” (Go away!) for $1000 Alex ... ;-)
Michelle Fashion Police Alert Ping!
FReepmail maggief if you want on or off this ping list
"...I can tell in speaking to her the extraordinary passion she has for providing an opportunity for all the people of Brazil, lifting everyone up. And that's a passion I share with respect to my citizens in the United States, my fellow citizens in the United States of America."
Notice the men have their hands folded...no handshake...while Michelle’s hand is extended, expected to be reciprocated.
A picture is worth..........
Major junk in trunk bump! How does she do it? ;-)

A few too many trips to the rib shack.
He wants the US import oil from Brazil

Maybe it's a prosthesis? Certainly looks unnatural.
Reuters Pictures 4 minutes ago U.S. first lady Michelle Obama speaks during a visit with young Brazilians who have participated in a range of U.S.-sponsored development programs, in Brasilia March 19, 2011. The Obamas are on the first leg of a three-country tour of Latin America.
Obama would rather reign than rule.
Holy crap, Miss Maggie. Those pictures need Helen Thomas-level barf alerts! Unbelievable!
She dresses like a wife overcompensating for an inadequate husband.
