A quote from former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates’ book, ‘Duty’.
“Hillary told the president that her opposition to the  surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary. .?.?. The president conceded vaguely that opposition to the Iraq surge had been political. To hear the two of them making these admissions, and in front of me, was as surprising as it was dismaying.”
It kind of puts the Obama Administration’s response to Benghazi in to perspective…..
At this moment, there is a backlog of about 410,000 claims at the VA for veterans… That’s HEALTHCARE claims… 410,000 that can’t be processed because the GOVERNMENT can’t do it!!!!
THAT’S GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTHCARE!!!!!
What happens when there are hundreds of millions of people claiming benefits from the same government???
What happens when it’s not just a “few veterans”???
What happens when it’s you?
Are you still on board the sinking ship known as Obamacare?
Here’s a sample of real world definitions according to Webster’s Online Dictionary…
—used to refer to the person or group of people that is being addressed as the subject of a verb or as the object of a verb or preposition
—used to refer to any person or to people in general
– I and the rest of a group that includes me : you and I : you and I and another or others : I and another or others not including you —used as pronoun of the first person plural
Obamafinitions are definitions that are added to our language as the supreme leader deems necessary to cover his lying hiney…. Here are the Obamafinitions of the above words.
– The Government
So now when you hear Dear Leader say ” If YOU like your insurance or your doctor, YOU can keep them.”
When I was a kid my parents had a cottage in the north woods. We always loved watching the local news and TV shows because the local talent was just so fun to watch!!! They had that up nort, Yooper, almost red neckie type charm!!! One of our favorites was The Spice King Jim Ford… WHAT A HOOT!! The company he was hawking spices for also sold olive and his line for the commercial was “an olive is not an olive”… I can’t remember the rest but we always snickered when we heard that. We still do! Jim was such a goof.
What does this have to do with anything?
Well I couldn’t help but hear the president say saying that adding a trillion dollar cap to the debt ceiling would not add a SINGLE DIME to the debt… What???
A trillion is not a trillion…. SHEEESH it’s not even a dime!!
Suddenly the Spice King isn’t the only one looking so Yooper goofy. At least I had a choice of whether or not I wanted to buy his olives.
……. and the Main Stream Media still gushes.
Do you remember that song by Cyndi Lauper? Cyndi has been quite vocal in her disapproval with President Obama. I think maybe it’s time she rewrite the lyrics to reflect a vindictive little president rather than it being a cute love song.
At no time in recent history has a president shown so much disdain for the citizens of this great nation especially military vets. Perhaps he has forgotten that he’s an employee of the people rather than a king.

Spat upon and disrespected when they returned from Vietnam.
Now they can’t even visit the memorial for their fallen brothers who died for their country. THIS COUNTRY!

“I didn’t set a red line….. The world set a red line”
Does he realize we have these cool things that record his speeches and preserve them FOREVER??
This guy won’t take responsibility for the stinky crap that he takes in the morning……
This president is a joke and everyone in the world knows it except for him and the accomplice media…..
They seem to be in the dark on just about everything at the Obama White House…. Gross incompetence???? Coincidence???
They really think we’re stupid…… Apparently a majority are..
Fast and Furious
Benghazi was a terrorist attack
“The White House was unaware”
The FBI investigation of Petraeus
“The White House was unaware”
Even democrat AND the White House Press Corpse are question Baghdad Jay….
Retired General David Petraeus announced his resignation yesterday citing an extramarital affair……. The Owebama Administration IMMEDIATELY accept it…..
This “coincidentally” comes right AFTER a presidential election and just a week before he was to testify on how the Owebama Administration mishandled the Benghazi terrorist attacks and how the administrations inaction directly lead to the deaths of 4 Americans……
The question I have is who in Washington DC resigns after an extramarital affair???? REALLY???
Did anybody else get a whiff of fish???
7 members of Seal Team 6, including some who were backing up President Obama while he almost single handedly killed UBL, have been reprimanded for supposedly giving classified information to EA video games. Meanwhile The President opened up classified documents to a movie company so they could make a puff piece movie, that was coincidentally released just prior to the election, with no repercussions whatsoever….
The Seal member are also going to lose pay….
I’m a bit speechless on this matter….. Why is good for one but not the other? Is there an investigation pending???
Oh wait……. Eric Holder is the AG.
Let’s just put this under the rug next to Fast and Furious and Benghazi.
I was reading an article somewhere a couple of days ago about the economy and, of course, the evils of rich people. When checking the comments, I found one that read something like this……. and they were serious….
Why doesn’t the government just print more money so employers can pay everybody more! Everybody would live comfortably and nobody would have any problems paying for houses, food or health care….
I’m going to borrow a phrase from our old buddy, Syndrome………
Oh, I’m real. Real enough to defeat you! And I did it without your precious gifts, your oh-so-special MONEY. I’ll give them MONEY. I’ll give them the most spectacular MONEY the world has ever seen! And when I’m old and I’ve had my fun, I’ll give my MONEY so that *everyone* can be RICH. *Everyone* can be RICH! And when everyone’s RICH… no one will be……
I changed it a little.
SyndrObama….. Kinda like a super villain… Looks like we’ll have to find another Mr. Incredible for 2016
France: Raise taxes and drastically increase government spending and entitlements = Socialist
United States: Raise taxes and drastically increase government spending and entitlements = Moderate Democrat…… and if you call him a socialist you’re considered a divisive lunatic and RACIST!!!!
PM elect Hollande of France is proud to be a socialist…… What is Obama afraid of?
The campaigner in chief is in Afghanistan thumping his chest about how he killed UBL and we the people will be subject to a nationally televised speech to remind us of his greatness…… IT’S TIME TO PLAY!!!!
To play Narcissidrink, you must drink a shot of your favorite alcoholic libation every time Obumbler says “I” or “ME”… You’ll be drunk within 2 minutes.
ENJOY!!!!!!! …. and drink responsibly….. Whatever…..
You’re a sick senior citizen and the government says there is no nursing home available for you. So what do you do?
Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot four Politicians.
Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating, air conditioning and all the health care you need!
Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That’s great. Need a new hip, knees, kidney, lungs or heart? They’re all covered.
As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do now.
And who will be paying for all of this? It’s the same government that just told you that you they cannot afford for you to go into a home.
Plus, and because you are a prisoner, you don’t have to pay any income taxes anymore.
Is this a great country or what?

For most of George W. Bush’s Presidency, the looney, Prius driving, drum banging, “can’t we all just get along”, clueless left had subjected us to all of their “No War for Oil” and “Impeach Bush” and “No Blood for Oil” rhetoric and bumper stickers implying that the only way to get along with the people who want to kill us is to sit around a campfire and sing Kumbaya.
Along comes Barack Hussein Obama. The savior from Illinois, or Hawaii, or where ever he’s from with promises of ending the wars and releasing innocent terrorist, or at least giving them the same rights as American citizens. Barack Hussein Obama, who told us we couldn’t call radical Islamists, who want nothing more than to simply kill us all, TERRORISTS…..
He sucked all of them in with his messianic speak….. Ahhhhh that HOPE and CHANGE!!!!
Resistance is FUTILE!!!
With today’s news of the death of al Qaida’s Al-Awlaki, do any of the new messiah’s followers find it at all disturbing that the only good thing this guy has done during his 3 years of never ending campaigning and spending, is to preside over the best military on the PLANET that killed a couple of really nasty murderous douchebags????
Don’t they see the empty mats by the campfire???
So the President took over the airwaves today to explain our financial problems. Apparently all of our problems are due to weather, earthquakes and Europe. After blaming EVERYTHING but out of control spending and the politicians in Washington’s reluctance to actually do anything about it, he proclaimed the only way to fix out of control spending was to ASK… yes I said ASK……. Ask those who can afford it to pay a little bit more.
Translation……. TAX HIKES.
What a confidence inspiring speech.
After the speech (almost instantaneously) the DJIA losses doubled.
The DOW closed at 10,810 losing 633 points. NASDAQ was down 175. The S&P lost 80.
Not sure what inspired old Barry to drag himself off the golf course and open up his yapper but I think the country is really much better off when he’s at the links…….
That Hope and Change stuff sure smells a lot like Obama stepped in a whole lot of goose poop by the water hazard…
