Obama jokes of getting dreadlocks after leaving office
Washington Times ^ | 1/09/14 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 01/12/2014 5:51:36 AM PST by Libloather

**SNIP**

“I used to have a haircut like that,” Mr. Obama said to laughter. “And maybe, after I’m done with the presidency, I’m going back to that.”

**SNIP**

“If you want to know why I care about this stuff so much, it’s because I’m not that different from Roger,” the president said. “There was a period of time in my life where I was goofing off. I was raised by a single mom. I didn’t know my dad. The only difference between me and Roger was my environment was more forgiving than his. That’s the only difference. If I screwed up, the consequences weren’t quite as great.”

He can’t/won’t prove anything about his past life.

And besides, he is not leaving.

He is NOT going to prison. Don’t even think it. It is wasted energy. Liberals waste their energy everyday thinking Bush is going to jail. It is dumb and unrealistic. Now what we need to spend out energy on is ensuring that we get the Senate in 2014 and keep the House which one day seems easy but the next seems impossible.

Talking about his childhood:

"If I screwed up, the consequences weren’t quite as great.”

Maybe someone should tell him that the current situation is slightly different.

The only difference between me and Roger was my environment was more forgiving than his. That’s the only difference. If I screwed up, the consequences weren’t quite as great.”

Let's get real, Barky. The only real difference was you were raised in a liberal/radical environment, influenced and mentored by your mother's radical communist/marxist associates, and groomed by the puppet masters. Given all that, its highly doubtful that there was any consequence if you "screwed up".

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

He speaks of the presidency as if it is something he will throw away when he is finished with it, like someone discarding a half-eaten apple. He is utterly contemptible.

Of all the pictures of him, the closest he got was a butt-ugly 'fro.

Not true...at all...

The party leadership are essentially the same, but not the the individual members...

There is a difference... a big one...

Oh haha.

He so funny.

That’s the problem, even if/when this douche gets out of office, he will be the perpetual fly-in-the-ointment, giving his 2-cents worth from the sidelines. He and Bill will be in arm-in-arm at some function or other benefiting the progressive way.

It is a step to taking our country back. Without controlling both houses, we never will. Conservatives must make our presence known and felt, nationally.

We will eventually be rid of the RINOS....we have to!!

So which office is he talking about? Office of the Presidency or a newly created office of “The Dictator”? Either way, I think he is President/Dictator for life.

JUST MY TAKE.....

Physically, Obama will leave the office of the presidency after his term expires.

However, he will remain living most of the time in DC, with occasional visits to his estate and Library in Hawaii.... where Michelle and the kids will be living most of the time.

Professionally, Obama will NOT be leaving the office of the presidency. If Hillary is elected, and in true soviet style, he will become the third member of a troika that will rule Washington, D.C., rule this country, and attempt to rule the world.

The troika?.....Hillary and Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.

All comrades are equal in a troika. A troika (a group of three) is a communist form of governance with overtones of fascism. The three participants operate as one, at least in theory, and at least for a while.

With the connivance of the media, Hillary will be a PINO....with Bubba and Obama calling most of the shots as an aging Hillary gleefully fronts for the three of them.

D.C. is already a company town....under a possibly-upcoming troika the U.S. will become a company country with citizens held in thrall under a three-headed, shadowy, suffocating government.

One thing must be mentioned.....troika government does not last. It eventually self-destructs. In the meantime, however, lasting damage can be done to a nation. We already see the damage done to our economy and culture under the malignant governance of the Obama/Senate/RINO troika working daily to destroy everything we stand for and everything we own......without impediment.

Why do you delude yourself and try to delude others?

Obama has achieved success in a startling number of items on his marxist agenda.....despite his apparent "laziness".

Be not deceived....Obama is ploughing ahead full steam...and is already girding for the new year....and amnesty.

After that....more deluge.
