You can even register your wedding on his campaign website. Could he be any more pompous?

Haha....That’s a good one....
Surely this is satire...
Hhaha.....That’s the point. If the newlyweds put this on their gift you can do exactly that.
In order to provide him with funds, it had been voted earlier that all persons still living who had wished to leave anything to Tiberius should at their death bestow the same upon Gaius [Caligula] ; for, in order to appear to have the right to accept inheritances and receive such gifts in spite of the laws (inasmuch as he had at this time neither wife nor children), he caused a decree to be issued by the senate. 2 But at the time of which I am speaking he seized for himself, without any decree, absolutely all the property of those who had served as centurions and had after the triumph which his father celebrated left it somebody else than the emperor...For even if Gaius did permit some of the older people to live, yet by calling them his fathers, grandfathers, mothers, and grandmothers, he not only milked them while they lived but also inherited their property when they died.
Well he hasn't descended to outright confiscation and altering wills yet but it's only June.
Thanks for the history lesson. There is nothing new under the sun!
My deceased Norwegian mother-in-law had one of those - at least I think that’s where I saw one of these ‘toasters.’
‘________that O has jumped the shark____________’
My thoughts eggs - actly - - -
“_______send Obama a fork.’
Excellent idea - I’m in.
Just one plastic fork - easily done.
hmmm... interesting idea
if millions of people did this, I bet it might even make the news- or go viral
It’s for the children, after all. /s
‘What BREATHTAKING arrogance.’
Absolutely beyond the pale.
Audacious, disgraceful, abominable.
Add your favorite description - - -
Once again, the reaction to something ridiculous and outrageous is to laugh -
‘______if millions of people did this_____’
(send a fork to the WH)
Even thousands should make the headlines.
I can see the WH mail room now - - -
So which definition applies:
‘Stick a fork in him - he’s done.’
(Half)’whiteman speak with forked tongue???!’
this is for real. If you go to Weasel zippers and click this picture it’ll take you to the web site. At the bottom it says paid for by the Obama campaign.
Chow for paragraph eater.

J. R. "Bob" Dobbs receding into infinity...
<img src="http://mumble.com/image.jpg"> substitute the actual source of the image for http://mumble.com/image.jpg This image must be out on a server on the web someplace, not on your machine. This is why people have flickr and picassa accounts. You can easily find out the URL of an existing picture on the web by right-mousing over it and selecting Open Image In New Tab. This will open a tab on your browser containing only that image. The URL of that tab is the one to use as your src="" value.
Some of the photo storage sites on the web (flickr) try to drive web traffic to their site to harvest advertising by providing a convenient pointer to their site that isn't a URL to a .jpg To get the proper URL try right mousing over the image and select Open Image in New Tab. This should get you the naked image itself, without all of the surrounding advertising. This is the URL you want to use.
Size: You can easily vary the size of a given image by specifying it. The native size of the J. R. "Bob" Dobbs picture above is 324x216 pixels. Typical screen pixels per inch numbers for normal displays are in the range of 75 to 150 so the original Dobbs'Head will likely appear on your screen somewhere between 2.88 to 1.44 inches wide.
The next row of Dobbs'Heads are scaled to the width of the enclosing container. We use the width because its value is mostly apparent on the screen. The value of the container's height is less so. The first Dobbs'Head is scaled to 30% of the width of the container. The next at about half that, and so forth... This produces a line of attractive Dobbs'Heads receding into infinity that occupies about half the width of your page, all without needing to know how wide your page is. The size of the images will change if you grab the edge of the page and make it wider or thinner. This is the reason you want to scale images (and anything else, really) by percentages rather than pixels.
In the past it was best to keep your scaling to powers of 2 (as shown) to minimize scaling artifacts. Current smoothing algorithms and processor speeds make that pretty much unnecessary. Remember that scaling up will not introduce new detail into the existing picture.
There are 791 comments on the page, and they are 95% negative (scathingly so). There are on the order of 20 THOUSAND facebook "likes" pointing to the page. There are 428 tweets associated with it. That entry is getting more attention than the entire rest of barackobama.com, and it's NOT good attention.
You've GOT to wonder what the hell is going on in their heads.
Looks like they removed the comments from the page. I can’t find any.
LOL! I remember my grandmother had that toaster when I was a child. Thanks for the memories.
An Obama worshipping white girl staffer came up with this brilliant idea. Pathetic that so many white girls are mesmerized by the magic Negro. I believe in marrying within your own kind and dittos for sexual relations. Plenty of black women are pissed their men gravitate towards white females
Why don’t they just ask folks to donate a bag of weed or some crack rocks? They could call it the “Reefer for Reelection” campaign or something.
Well, that should offset the loss from the Quinceaneras. That take should be non-existent...since he already thinks Latinos can't be trusted with flatware around his Royal Self.
I just checked at http://www.barackobama.com/news/entry/the-obama-event-registry
There are over 900 comments. It takes a little while to fully load. Go there and scroll down.
Don’t you INSULT my dog like that. I told my brother-in-law about this and he couldn’t believe it. I venture to say that before this election is over with, we will see a lot more of unbelievable things.
You would have to make sure that you didn't leave fingerprints or anything identifying who you are on the package or you would likely end up in the hoosegow.
Had to laugh.
I’m pissed off!!
