Is he gonna have that real stern look?
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Remind me to stay far away from any TV or radio...........
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Obama: "What exactly are they trying to hide?" re: MH17. Good question. Why bother hiding when the West is pansying out?

  • Your what hurts??
What exactly was the point of this?

Exactly what I was thinking while I listened to this.  There are so many qualifiers in his statement, and so much wishful thinking, and obvious pandering to the Far Left, to leave this whole statement meaningless.

What would I do??  I'd have sent a couple of Aegis cruisers into the Black Sea to put a radar and missile umbrella over Ukraine, with orders to shoot down any SAM launched by anyone.

Same goes for Israel.  I'd have a couple of Aegis armed missile ships off the coast of Gaza to help Israel defend itself, and I would be a needle in Egypt's ass over why they keep allowing Hamas to smuggle Iranian made missiles into Gaza from Egyptian territory.

Among other things.

I guess he really got grief for not bothering to say much the day it happened so now he is doing this presser.

Reminder: Obama's a lame duck. What's he raising so much money for?

I don't know, Barry. Have any hard drives miraculously crashed yet?
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open."
