It's looking to be more like $250 to $300 million, that's anemic for a sitting president.

Maybe but the MSM schilling for him has to be worth a Billion

Now remember, all you kids (soon to be men and women), who are having Bar and Bat Mitzvahs between now and November, those checks you get from Uncle Sy and Aunt Whoppi are really intended for a muslim running for reelection.

Yes, it does seem counter intuitive.

I pray that our “stupid, guilt-ridden, ignorant fellow Americans” who voted 0b0z0 in, will get a gram of brains to NOT to stab this Republic again.

I said gram because an ounce is too much!

I wonder why he didn’t ask people whose loved ones have died or will die soon, to not send flowers but to donate to him instead? Same type of low life BS.

Instead, the couples could sign up for all the wedding registries using the White House as the shipping address and U.R. Toast as the name of the betrothed. Tell everyone they want a toaster for their wedding gift. Thousands of toasters sent to U.R. Toast at the White House over the next 4 months. Obozo would probably just sell them all on Craig’s List and buy some choom.

What a great excuse to stiff the next rel that is foolish enough to do this....

I went to a niece's wedding last weekend. One of the aunts (my wife's sister) gave an extremely niggardly gift.

That person is an extreme liberal. I wonder if this is why she was so cheap. Then I thought to myself... "Nahhhhh, she roots for Obama, but wants the money to only flow in her direction." Typical.

The worst part about this election season is that even against this low-life slug, the right might lose, because the best they can muster out of tens of millions of republicans is a wishy-washy lefty like Romney.

Truth to tell, I really don't want to be part of either party anymore.

How about we all just buy $500,000 term life insurance policies and name Obama as beneficiary?

Some of the nastier Roman Emperors had rich people change their will in his favor, and then commit suicide. This is certainly one way to refill an empty treasury. It would be best not to give a troubled president any wicked ideas.

Good gosh what a ridiculous and desperate request. Maybe Obama should ask all newlyweds to just send him and Michelle all their duplicate gifts - like toasters, blankets, sheets, towels, etc. instead. They just might need them when they have to move back to their Chicago hut.

Notice how, of all the possible gifts in the world, the WH states the contributions will go “a lot further than a gravy bowl.”

Heck, IT IS A GRAVY BOWL, from which the greedy, voracious Obama beast will devour every last ounce of our hopes and our dreams.

That's the first thing that jumped out, especially because the normal term is gravy boat. He must have been thinking punch bowl, but the immediate word association would be turd. Yeah, it had to have been punch bowl, because that's also a cemetary, the one where Stanley Dunham is buried (along with who knows what else).

The time of Noah and Sodom when sin was so great God wiped it away with great power

Noah’s son Ham “looked on his father’s nakedness” and was cursed. Wonder what that would mean? Intentionally looking at male nakedness by a male?

No doubt that was the sin of Sodom, though.

And what was Noah’s world doing? Everyone marrying doesn’t sound so bad unless it meant EVERYONE, perhaps as in male with male???

In such a world as Noah’s and Sodom is the world that will see Jesus return. Is that what this passaage says?

See below:

Luke 17;22 Then he said to his disciples, ?The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. 23 People will tell you, ?There he is!? or ?Here he is!? Do not go running off after them. 24 For the Son of Man in his day[d] will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. 25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.

26 ?Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.

28 ?It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.

He’s first and foremost anti-Christian, and sides with the Muslims because they are too.

"Plus it's a gift that we can all appreciate."

John 12

4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

The fact that it's been on Drudge for at least a half hour, and the page is still up, indicates that somebody over there has an INSANE level of narcissism.

Highly probable, but an alternative [hope] is that someone over there is a saboteur, doing his or her part to sink the good ship Obamapop.

Mocking the Won is stabbing the beast in the soft underbelly.

Gets you an image that is 25% of the width of the page. Percentages are preferred to pixels for specifying size because everybody has a different screen size.

To re-size images, remember to put the "location" (img src="location") and the pix number of both height and width in quotation marks.

In this case, as the page info (found by right clicking the image and choosing page info) listed dimensions as being 1,600px × 1,443px,
I simply used height="140" width="160", as it seemed handy to divide by ten,
and I wasn't much worried of what distortion would result by my ignoring 43 px out of 1,400.

Hope this helps. There is an current HTML Sandbox page on this site,
though it can take some looking to find it, but one can *usually* do a practice run of whatever html
coding one is trying to implement, and see how the image renders using the "preview" function
found at the bottom of any reply window [on this site, anyway].

* it doesn't work for everything, particularly in regards to multiple images placed to the left, or right, interspersed with text.
Putting all images in < center > is easiest, when using more than one.
