“Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon is unacceptable. We will mount an international effort to prevent that from happening.”

I’m having a belly laugh sending this around to the lefty sites. Watch heads explode!

“Obama advisers discuss preparations for war on Iran”
(WSWS) — On the eve of the US elections, the New York Times cautiously pointed on Monday to the emergence of a bipartisan consensus in Washington for an aggressive new strategy towards Iran. While virtually nothing was said in the course of the election campaign, behind-the-scenes top advisers from the Obama and McCain camps have been discussing the rapid escalation of diplomatic pressure and punitive sanctions against Iran, backed by preparations for military strikes...

With resect to the dog, this is a major issue. More interest on our website than just about anything!

It has to be a hypo allergenic dog. His preference is a shelter dog but says alot of hypo allergenic dogs are mutts like me.

We’re in Obamaland in California. I’ve wanted to move for years, but we haven’t because of husband’s job.

That's impossible, all the jobs left California.

When you leave, remember over a million more California's voted for Bush than did Texans in 2004. Shazzam!

Everyone's missing the point. We're all supposed to retain a sense of hope in the Obamacoup, and blame for Bush.
Paying attention to words, as if they meant things, is a conservative mind game, and not to be played with Barry's flowing prose.

And, again, he’s misusing the word “enormity.”

Someone should slip him a note.

Had to mute when he started talking about which dog to buy. Way too painfully stupid.

"Office of the President-Elect"?!!? Oh, man. That is so, so lame. It reminds me of the Obama seal they had up for 1 day during the election. Embarrassing.

That “office of the president elect” sign is downright classless. First, there is no such office. And second, the sign looks like it was printed in a hurry at a “Signs In Ten Minutes” type store.

Does his limo have a “Car of the president elect” sign?

Was it just me or is that an inverted pentagram in the circle at the top of the sign?

1) The market keeps diving WHILE he is speaking.

2) I think I will refer to him as President Uhh. It’s his most used word.

3) I LOLed when he specified that he has spoken with all living presidents who are living.

He sounds so DUMB, STUPID, and inarticulate. Without a script, he stumbles all over the place. A child could handle these questions better.

Oh goody. He's now a example of of the Peter Principle. I can't even start a countdown on his term because it has not even started!

Could we have a 30 day exchange or store credit on this past election?

He isn’t answering one question directly, he’s just repeating his stump speech. The reporters are having Obasams and peeing all over themselves.

Why is there no possum on that sign? Never mind; we will all picture that possum because it does belong there. Whenever they use their little cutesy blue signs, let’s all picture that possum head up there. (OK, Huckabee, if it makes you too hungry, you can skip it.)
