Barry is absolutely right. Time for the country to toughen up, call for Barry’s impeachment and get things back on track.

This from the same S.O.B. giving a $5 million bonus to the state that signs up the most food stamp recipients?!?!?!

He says we have lost our competitive edge. He says we have gone soft.

If he wins another 4 years, I will shoot myself in the head.

I barely remember Carter, but I think Obama knows even less about him and his legacy.

Carter was a disaster in every way. Obama is a far greater catastrophe. He is actually trying to destroy this nation.

I admired your comments on another thread re: your Obama decoder ring, and the fact that he’s always and only talking about himself [i.e.: as when he commands people to take off their bedroom slippers and stop feeling sorry for themselves, etc.].

Dare I ask you to decode Obama’s ‘gone soft’ comment?

Or will I regret the answer? ;)

Great photos! The killer phote is girlie boy 0dumb0 wincing like a pansy durin the judo demonstration. Is there ANYTHING that 0dumb0 does that bears any resemblance to a man? I have to admit, I am baffled as to why 0dumb0’s childhood & high school classmates would not have stuffed this girlie boy into the locker every day or just simply beat the sh_t out of him, for acting like a girl. Of course maybe they did and he is now acting out his latent hostility against the U.S. and whites in particular.

In an interview this evening with a local NBC affiliate in Orlando, President Obama claimed that America has "gotten a little soft."

Said President Obama, the golf club-swinging, hoop-shooting, bicycle-riding, wave-surfing, ice cream-scarfing, burger-chomping, shake-slurping, pizza-gnawing, arugula-picking vacation hound.

"I mean, there are a lot of things we can do," Obama said. "The way I think about it is, you know, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft and, you know, we didn't have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades. We need to get back on track."

In other words, it's not his fault. Hell, it's not even George Bush's fault.

It's OUR fault!

What?!!! You Lie Obama is now trying to be a chef also? What a guy!

First he was a Kook, then on Inauguration Day he became a Cook by turning up the flames under the simmering pot of water with us tax-burdened frogs in it.

Now, he has achieved the discernment of a Chef when he can tell that we, nearly par-boiled tax-burdened frogs, are “getting a little soft.”

In my mind’s ear I can hear Chef You Lie Obama now: “ Yummy! Almost done! Just 4 more years of higher National Debt burden, and WOW! It will be such a great feast! I may even invite the Chinese to come to that State Dinner ! They are always hungry, and they ALWAYS have the Politically Correct Surnames. “

Don't go "soft" for his sake, aim that smoke wagon elsewhere and take out a commie or three.

Those photos are absolute HOOTs!!!

Photo #1 -- Where is that dog sniffing & licking?

Photo #2 -- A 40 lb dog out for a brisk walk and 0dumb0 straining to hold on & keep up!

Photo #3 -- Is there ANYONE who looks more like a dipsh_t than 0dumb0? He's got the Gomer Pyle "Shazzam" look on his face, along with his limp wrist & effeminate walk? He's gotta be a homo faggot, ready to come out at any time! Mooochelle looks as gawky & awkward as ever in her Saturday morning flea market attire.

Wow. The 1970's all over again. I remember being blamed then for the "Crisis of Confidence" the country was in. Obummer is a horses ass. BTW, was he wearing a sweater in the interview?

I guess now that Winter is on it's way, I should expect another speech on keeping my thermostat at 65.

Electing Obama is strong evidence of how soft — in the head — America has become.

A friggin' Baskin Robbins soda jerk telling America it has gotten soft! At exactly the same time this moron left out the strawberry cheesecake to thaw.
