Most likely the only reason he is attending the Fort Hood Memorial is to get in a plug for gun control and attend fundraisers. He makes me ill.

I thought I read somewhere that he delayed the memorial to coincide with the fund raiser.

I’m not so sure. Baraq seem to have almost nothing to do with his relatives.

But, but the Fort Hood memorial service and the suffering people from the mud slide are a threat to mac daddy, he’s concerned that HE will not be the center of attention.

Probably Pelosi will swing by Wendy’s condo and tell her to go back to her husband.

You have to credit bh0 for keeping focused on his priorities. Too bad our soldiers are not among them.

Interesting isn’t it, this way attending the fund raiser
doesn’t cost him a thing.

Curious about that odd, swollen area under his lower lip. Must be that pointy lizard tongue of his that he keeps all rolled up on a stick.

I heard on a Houston radio station that selfie boy was already in town at 11AM. Bet he spent a whole 15 minutes at Ft. Hood. What a guy.

That picture is way out there on the creep o meter.
His eyes look like he is stoned.
Guess that would make him unresponsive to a fly crawling over this mouth.

Guy named Kam Kamata, a political aide to Dianne Feinstein, told someone he saw similar things at the Denver convention when Obama was hurried backstage looking crashed-out by Jarrett and Michelle. Really odd stuff.

It got odder when Kamata turned up face-down on his kitchen floor.

I knew he was coming a couple of days ago ...... heard the Apaches flying over Houston and the sound of a really big helo (sounded like a giant coffee-grinder) flying overhead. I said to a Houston neighbor right away, "Is the _Resident coming to town for a fundraiser?"

Only reason Dems ever come to Texas, to milk the big-rich liberal 'Rats that grow fat around here.

That makes sense.
I was driving down around somewhere down there and saw a couple of Apache helos cruising low.
The ONE hit up a high dollar River Oaks lawyer. Saw the shakedown fee to attend was $65K per.
