See that. Liberalism is crashing, and they are standing around giving each other awards.

I put as much stock in a Medal of Freedom as I do the Nobel Peace Prize. Absolutely none.

Hmmm. I guess freedom means something different to me than it does to him.

Gee, let's see, an Impeached ex-president that did not much of anything but get head from fat Jewish chicks; and a fat Negress that did, what, exactly?

This was all a joke I am not getting, right?

Yet another prestigious award watered down to nothing.
It's apparently OK to make millions on the misery of others if you're in politics or entertainment.

I think you have to be liberal to understand why each of these people got the award.

Gettysburg is such a short chopper ride from DC. Yet he cited problems with the website and other Obamacare business as to why he couldn’t go to Gettysburg.

Of course, the same guy jets out on Air Force One to go to California and yuk it up with Jay Leno, and hold fundraisers, and thinks nothing of going to Europe on short notice to lobby for the Olympics for Chicago.

It’s all about priorities.

Gee, what can you say?

That this cheapens the award for everyone else who's ever received it?

Why not a Presidential Medal of Freedom for Monica Lewinsky?
She was doing the actual work in the Oral Room, after all, not CLinton

Well....only days ago the Orca again denounced all critics of Obama as “racist”, so he tosses a MOF her way.

“Nice Orca, here, catch!”
