“under the color of state business”

The only things he can’t do in Washington DC are vacations and campaigning.
And all he needs for his race-baiting in DC are a friendly microphones/cameras, TOTUS and a place to stand/lie.

BOOYAH! It's about frikkin’ time. I enjoyed the little smirk, the shifting in his seat and the obvious non-answer, answer. Yes, BO; we hate you and your beastly wife. Prepare for more hammering as you try and take this Country. You will fail!

LOL! yeah Barry, we understand how hard you work :-)

Most of us have known incompetent, lazy, blame-someone-else, one-trick ponies who think they are in charge of our lives, at some time in our lives

Thanks for posting. Obama was ticked about being challenged on this.

The reporter said:
Conners: “Well, of course, with all due respect, the President side stepped that question.”

Well, dummy, why didn’t you pursue it? You would have had it been Bush or Palin.

“Yes, BO; we hate you and your beastly wife.”

BJ Clinton was enough of an actor that he could convince people he really “felt their pain”; Obama has no such ability. The novelty of the affirmative action president has worn off, and people are more desperate now than when they were stupid enough to elect him in ‘08. I don’t see him winning many states at all; there are not enough people who can respond in the positive to the question: Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?

They know the TV is lying to them every time they buy groceries or gas...

Klintoon was a good actor and had his reasons for acting like he “felt our pain”.

baraq doesn’t give a damn.
He does all this as a “in your face” insult to us.

As much as a piece of human vermin as clinton was/is, he still considers himself to be an American.

baraq doesn’t.

In hindsight, Clinton was “Obama lite”; same racial & gender pandering, but with a softer edge.

I couldn't age more. If on election day he garners more than 4% of the total population of any State, those votes can be attributed to illegals, the dead or double and triple voting. I believe his core group, blacks, will sit this one out. They made their point and it blew up in their faces.

You must not live in the northeast. The liberal lemmings will follow this guy off the cliff.

No, I live in the South. Following Is one thing, showing up to cast a vote is another. Do you think they'll show up?

The fact is that if every black person (using the lib definition: anyone with a drop of black blood) voted for him, they are still such a small number in comparison to whites (and since 2000, Hispanics).

Black people buy gas & groceries like anyone else, and they’re feeling the pain...

"Do you think they'll show up?"

Absolutely. I believe the liberals in the northeast are truly waiting for communism. My sibling works for an ivy league school. On the website they list the names of professors donating to Obama in 2012. Can you imagine something like that when Bush was president? I view that as coercion.

Wow! Sounds like coercion to me, too. I can't imagine what this Country will be like if we don't keep the House and capture the Senate. To me, that's more important; especially if Romney us the nominee. He's Obama lite and won't beat Obama. I will hold my nose and vote for him but my main focus will be to work as hard as I can to put the people in office who will stop Obama’s destruction or if Mitt wins, keep him on track.
