“What’s your best perk? You know, like having beers with Hillary Clinton or being able to call any person in the world in the middle of the night?”

Obama said the best perk of the presidency for him was the Truman Balcony, because he got to sit out there with his wife on their “date night” and look at the view.

The White House will have to be steam cleaned after these morons get booted out.

Obama has the mind of a child (who was probably glad to get rid of it).

Even Bill Clinton did not consider “having beers with Hillary Clinton” to be one of the best perks of living in the White House.

That graphic would be perfect if there was one more "L" in the first word . . .

Still funny though . . .

Most Presidents would say something along the lines of "The best perk is being able to get out and meet so many Americans from so many walks in life". But not Bammy.

We used to constantly see Bush in the crowds, shaking hands and mixing with the people while smiling.

Hardly ever see Bammy mixing with the little people.

Perfect metaphor for this passive, do-nothing, observer presidency.

I wonder if Obama knows that Truman was once a member of the KKK?

Isn’t that the truth....

Then he’d blame the fall on Bush.

The Truman National Security State, whereby what he says is executive prerogative is executive prerogative—be it to start wars without Congress (Libya), declare this and that by White House fiat (legalizing 30 and under illegals), keep whatever secret he wants to be secret (gunwalker)—I can believe.

This is the time period, four months prior to election day (in a battle for a second term) that is what I call "The Softening".

Every article and photo put out by the Mouthpiece Media is going to be an attempt to soften the Ocommies in the minds of the voting public. Fortunately, what the bitter clingers are experiencing out here in flyover country resounds much more strongly than what some sycophantic so-called journalist puts out.

In the next six weeks or so, "The Strengthening" will be added into the mix. That's where Obummer is made to look like he has been a strong leader and protector. That makes for a truly vomit-inducing period for anyone with half a brain.

And the discarded butts are probably piling up to near the level of the balcony.

You know, it is absolutely pathetic the lengths to which people with limited intelligence and ethics and morals will go, all to be part of the national political ‘in-crowd’.

I would no more shake that pretender’s hand than actually socially associate with him or his family. You lie down with dogs and you wake up with fleas.
