Which one do you think our ‘commander in chief’ prefers? Obama gave a speech to an audience of college graduates at University of California, Irvine in which he expounded on his advanced views of climate change:

He's so, so, so, uh, presidential when he gets snarky. Well, maybe not. Sarcasm can be used in certain circumstances. Other times, not so much. What an idiot. Someone responded the other day that more than a few declined to attend the ceremonies to avoid being in his presence. If you can believe that. Anecdotal info only.

Why should we care about the opinion of a semi-educated stoner?

A great description of the President. I wish I could remember who said it.

He is a pyromaniac in a field of straw men.”

A commenter wrote, and this is from memory, “He's a pyromaniac in a field of straw men.” I thought that was so dead on.

I faintly recall in the mists of ancient history, the leader of a great republic lecturing us about the need for civility. Let's see, who was that?
Could it be...? Nah, it was someone else; must have been.

Ah, I should have looked first. You beat me to it. I think it’s a great turn of phrase.

“advanced views”

Ah yes, the old “he’s the smartest guy in the room and we’re all just not bright enough to understand him” BS.

Who are they trying to convince of that, us or themselves?

I heard someplace that he declined joining MENSA because he views them as a bunch of dimwits. That’s how SMART he is. Or not. Petulant whiney bullying punk is more like it.

The point of that is to affirm to those who hold such a view that they themselves are “smart” because they support and agree with the “smartest guy in the room”.

There’s really nothing more to it than liberals’ well deserved inferiority complex.

someday it will be admitted in history books that “The Emperor has No Clothes” was not only a fable but a deviant era of American History..

"Reactionaries!"

Obama's trying so hard to stir up his Red Guard.


Translation: "All peoples of the world unite to overthrow the imperialists and the reactionaries of all nations!

I'm sorry. Do you think that Barack Obama is NOT a semi-educated stoner, and you therefore disagree with my post about Obama?

Just for your information - Anthony Watts & his Wattsupwiththat.com website ROCK, and take it to the Watermelon Global Warmers till they cry.

I'm a big fan.

I was in the intellectual crew in high school & college, in pretty much the same age bracket as dimbulb Obama.

None of the few people who were my intellectual peers thought that "Austrian" is a language, or pronounced Navy corpsman "corpseman".

He's a lightweight poseur who can read a TeeVee screen.

It’s bad enough when an average speaker tries to tell us more than he knows,but when a president does it,he is just creating more problems than he knows.
