Barack Obama Knows Now What Itís Like to Give a Speech Where Only One Man Claps
ijreview.com ^ | march 26, 2014 | mike miller

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One.

After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came.

it’s what happens to barrycades when he doesn’t give out free beer in order to get people to listen to his speeches.

Ouch...that had to hurt his fragile ego!

And the way they all got up after he stopped speaking and fled for the exits. That was a “who had the burrito for lunch” mass exodus.

Reality really sucks!

Why is it so hard for the commune-fascists, the clueless Senate and the unconscious MSM back home to understand the obvious?

OBAMA WAS NOT ELECTED TYRANT. He was elected to enforce legal, Constitutional laws adopted by Congress.
Congress has veto power.
The Executive Department does not!

Embarrassing, Loony Tunes American government.

This is a most satisfying way to start the news day.
I will be LOL-ing all day.

At one time, nation’s if not respected the United States, feared the United States.

Today, no one respects are fears us.

We all are going to end up paying the price for what those in Washington DC have done to our nation (and I include both parties as well as the supposed watch dogs in the media).

Don't forget we have to meet at the White House as these socialist/marxist/communist/muzzie lovers are kicked out of OUR White House, and bring tomatoes with you...or maybe some pork chops with which to deliver a “get the hell out of OUR White House, as the White House front door hits them in the azz. Oh, wait, don't bring the pork chops, ‘cause the mooch would eat em’! These people are hated, and We the People must make that known to them...the narcissist obozo won't acknowledge this, but you can bet the mooch, her moochin’ mamma and the rental kids will get the message.

The Europeans finally realized that Obama has all the leadership ability of a gummi bear. Not very reassuring when Putin is growling.

And you'll notice how obozo always has to make a show of how cordial and in control and exceedingly confident he is by laying a hand on the man, identity unknown, in the dark suit who followed him off the podium. obozo has to show that HE’s the one in control by always touching people he encunters, and to also appear to dominate anyone or any situation. I'll betcha that after he stepped off the podium, his momma Valerie Jarrett was on the phone to sooth the feelings of obozo and bolster his spirits with her soft, sweet voice as she told him how commanding, how masterful, how proud she was of him...why does this all remind me of Hitler and his entourage of yes men, although in this case, obozo is the puppet and reptillian Valerie Jarrett is his handler..

Personally, I'm hoping Reggie Love will give him HIV or full blown AIDS..it's the least he can do for all that obozo has done for him...someone or something has to bring this evil POS down.

He was elected to enforce legal, Constitutional laws adopted by Congress.

The problem with this is that there's very few, relatively speaking, constitutional federal laws.
One example is the War on Drugs, which is not authorized by the Constitution at all; in fact, in order to enact similar restrictions upon alcohol a constitutional amendment was needed.
