If he wasn't a U.S. citizen of ANY sort (I have my doubts) what sort of skids (or palms) were greased to make his entry into those offices possible?

Hawaiian ones, New Democrat Chicago ones.

The best account I can find indicates that the document-fixing initiative dates from the 2004 speech, when a faction in the top ranks of the Democratic Party "adopted" Obama and decided they wanted to take him all the way.

I say "faction" because Bill and Hillary certainly had other plans.

But other than home fixits like Grandma Dunham's swiping a dead merchant seaman's Connecticut-issued SSAN for Barky's use (indicating he hadn't "renaturalized" and regularized his citizenship papers, but instead Mom and Grandma, good Communists they, had gone outside the system and done things the old NKVD way) and a couple of other items, it seems the greasing and fixing was done by people close to Tom Daschle and Nancy Pelosi and Vernon Jordan (who first "walked around" with Obama to exiled Clintonistas' dinner parties and social events in 2001-2002).

I’d prefer Zaphod to Obama any day.

He will need, if he's going to go into Barky's stuff,

Should happen, won't happen.

Romney is a doer, an organization man. He will want to spend his efforts on the economy, not busting people. Unfortunately, this is government, not business. He's not so adept a politician as to understand is that unless the left is hiding from him in fear, he won't get anything done. They'll be setting up means to keep him tied up, whether war, terrorism, Bernanke shutting off the money spigot that kept Zero afloat...

Setting up a staff of bulldog prosecutors dirt would definitely be worth the money, both to keep the Democrats at bay and to keep the media occupied with stories. Both are critical.

BO, on the other hand, didn't believe that he had any limitations. Although he may be beginning to suspect.

When all is said and done, the only limitations that The One will recognize will be ours.

We simply didn't appreciate his greatness...

A BTT for the late evening crowd. I think that it would be tragic for the country if he won a second term, and I think it would be a tragedy for 0bama himself. I don’t think all the media spin duct tape in stock can patch this into something resembling a credible administration. Better just to let it go, and put the spinmeisters to work creating a Golden Age that never was in retrospect. The rest of us will be patching the country back together.

I shed no tears for Oprah. She made her choice and made it all too public.

Weeping over his win, like a proud Mama.

She didn’t know him at all. He uses people.

She got used and thrown away.

Yes, perhaps the lameest duck in history, but also the most arrogant and defiant.

Obamacare will NEVER be repealed.

I doubt the GOP will have the guts to impeach him and as of now, it looks like Benghazi could be impeachable offenses.

Keeping praying.

The evil Marxist and every possible demon-rat must be defeated.

The Marxist with his ginormous ego will NEVER recover from a defeat. Never.

Well, that's basic military common sense, isn't it? Sit on your ass, and someone will come along and start busting it for you. Best defense, good offense, etc. etc.

s Agile, mobile, and hostile. Chase 'em down, burn 'em out.

Re-remind me, which was more nirvanic: Zaphodic Beeblebroxianism, or Beeblebroctic Zaphody?

Perhaps the author of this endless creed should not be so critical of the other long-winded blowhard.

Correct. The article is a testament of Creedal substance. Your screed on the other hand is not half so witful.

Unfortunately, Romney probably doesn’t see Democrats as enemies, nor do they have any intention of reciprocating his benign intent.
