I Came, I Saw, I Skedaddled

Decisive moments in Barack Obama history.

P. J. O’Rourke

September 16, 2013, Vol. 19, No. 02

Julius Barack Caesar Obama Crosses the Rubicon

I am crossing the Rubicon. Brrr, the water’s chilly. Deep, too. I’m going for a walk along the riverbank to look for a bridge. And I will cross the Rubicon as soon as the weather warms up. The die has been cast. That is, the deck has been shuffled. Or the Wheel of Fortune has been spun. And I’ll buy a vowel...

Congress and the American people folded too soon in 2008 when Bambi bluffed.

The “BLAME GAME”

“Soon comming to a newspaper near you!”

The shortest story ever told. “You’re all racist”

Brings to mind the time BJ Clinton was going to grab a rifle and jump in the trenches with Israel.

BIG talkers, but when the sh*t hits the fan ...

The best one IMO from the article.

John Barack Fitzgerald
Kennedy Obama

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill—and since we’re not engaged in nation-building, every nation should wish us well—that we shall pay any price if it’s not too high, bear any burden unless it’s burdensome, meet any hardship unless it’s hard, support any friend if we have any, oppose any foe—although no nation should think of us as a foe because we’re not that kind of country anymore—to assure the survival and success of liberty, unless it’s a holiday weekend.

Alynsky's Rules for Radicals:* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

I understand it is an insult to you if someone shows the soles of their shoes/feet to you - in Muslim world, IIRC.

Brave Sir Barack (with apologies to Monty Python)

Brave Sir Barack ran away

Bravely, ran away...away...

When danger reared its ugly head

He bravely turned his tail and fled

Yes, brave Sir Barack turned about

And gallantly he chickened out

Bravely taking to his feet

He beat a very brave retreat

Bravest of the brave, Sir Barack

He is packing it in and packing it up

And sneaking away and buggering off

And chickening out and running off home,

Yes, bravely he is throwing in the sponge.

THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE
by
Benny Hill

They said that it could not be done,
He said, “Just let me try.”
They said, “Other men have tried and failed,”
He answered, “But not I.”
They said, “It is impossible,”
He said, “There’s no such word.”
He closed his mind, he closed his heart...
To everything he heard.

He said, “Within the heart of man,
There is a tiny seed.
It grows until it blossoms,
It’s called the ‘Will to Succeed.’
Its roots are strength, its stem is hope,
Its petals inspiration,
Its thorns protect its strong green leaves,
With grim determination.

Its stamens are its skills
Which help to shape each plan,
For there’s nothing in the universe
Beyond the scope of man.
They thought that it could not be done,
Some even said they knew it,
But he faced up to what could not be done...

...AND HE COULDN’T BLOODY DO IT!!

Embarrassing...a coward. I thought I would never live to see the day that our president would back down to anyone.

Take that back, I lived thru Jimmy Carter, but at least he tried.

Obama is an f ing coward. In one week he has transformed us to pansies.

But the worst is yet to come my friends
