    LOL @ the second pic. She’s so focused on what he is saying.

    It’s good for him that he took this trip to focus on the economy. Though the stupid media want him to sit behind his desk and do nothing but focus on japan and Libya. The whitehouse is wherever he is. So good he is my President.

    OK, I generally refrain from mentioning the name of that cretin who used to be the governor of Alaska. But please forgive me while I rant. The Politico-rag has a story up about the stupid, cannot speak, knows nothing about geography or anything else, trailer trash no-class, delusional about being president, heffa bashing the President’s handling of Libya in India. What the hell happened to respecting the damn office? I am sick and tired of this dumb heffa. She’s dumb, dumb, dumb. She’s pure evil. I pray that she does get the nomination so PBO can blow her dumb butt away again. It’ll be a bigger landslide than before.

    I have never loathed anyone as much as I do this DUMB woman. Can I say the word DUMB again?

    Instead of bashing PBO she’d better be trying to schedule some plastic surgery sessions because she’s looking as tired as her stupid rhetoric.

      Just read that Proud, and honestly all I did was laugh. She’s a grade A moron, and thankfully more and more people are realising it. She’s a laughing stock.

        I know I should laugh at the washed up stupid fool, too. But this one just made me see red. I know she’s crying for attention. And nobody really gives a damn what she has to say except for the ignorant 16% who still follow up. But she just has some nerve. She’s stupid, has raised a dysfunctional brood of dummies and thinks she’s fit to lead this country. I’ve just had enough of hearing about this loon.

      Well said Proud, couldn’t have done it any better. How awesome would it be seeing Batcrazy Bachman and The Gutless Wonder gov, slug it out verbally? Imagine if they both decided to run. In a primary, they’d tear each other apart. Awesome, like a dumb snake eating itself.

      She has already torn her azzz in India. A media outlet was doing some ongoing reporting about her and reported that her first visit after landing and checking into her hotel was to a high end department store where the lowest priced item is $500.00. Well, Madame Dim Bulb didn’t like it, so now, there is a media blackout for MDB for the rest of her visit in India. She doesn’t know enough to know how bad it makes her look to go to a foreign country and try to control the press. Everything you said about Palin is 100% correct, POB.

      Wonderful description of that grifter. I can’t even think about her anymore – the mere thought of her opportunistic, evil self sends my blood pressure through the roof, so I’ve gone to pretending she doesn’t exist. She offers nothing positive, and elicits no positive response in return. I don’t need it. Given that she quit her job because it was too hard and she couldn’t keep ahead of her ethics lawsuits (plus she wanted to make millions off the backs of the ignorant), she has no credibility to comment on how to do an exponentially tougher job – let alone even to be considered as a viable candidate. She’s living in an alternate reality. She’s just bad news. And she’s putting out a lot of bad karma out there.

      I can’t resist. I just have to borrow a line from our Chipsticks –

      ‘Tell us how you REALLY feel about her, Proud of O!’ πŸ˜†

    • March 20, 2011 at 11:19 am

      Tell me how you really feel, POB. LOL at your comments — so very true. πŸ™‚

    Chips, WEE See You has a livestream up of PBO’s speech at the business summit in Brazil. It hasn’t started yet.

    I’m so confused. The live stream at WEE See You just froze. White House.gov list it as starting at 2:30 but says it should be now streaming. Did I miss it? Boo hoo!

    ^^^ POB I send you a virtual hug πŸ™‚

    that heffa from Alaska(I refuse to name her :mad:) is predictable so nothing and I mean nothing that comes from her heffa trap surprises me πŸ™„
    hell! the day she’d say anything remotely positive about President Obama;I’ll pull out my thermometer and check my temperature or make sure I am not delirious because all hell will freeze before she compliments him πŸ™„ 😑

    I make sure to skip any and everything she spews about him and give whatever she says about him a big πŸ™„ without even reading it πŸ˜†

    now;now take a deep breath and drink a glass of water and say a prayer for the President so that he brings home plenty of bacon (deals with the Brazilian Gvt that is) home πŸ˜€

      Receiving that hug, Fred. Thank you soooooooo much. LOL at the thermometer. I am praying and praying that PBO comes back with jobs, jobs, jobs for the American people. Praying that all ends well in Libya. He is truly a visionary leader. The silly pundits just can’t keep up with this man and his brilliant mind.

        I am very very sarcastic POB just so you know πŸ˜† so that’s why I talked about the thermometer and I mean it because I am one in my desk drawer πŸ˜†

        I just saw on MSNBC that the Pentagon has started to blast missiles ;o and those idiots are amazed that the President unlike Shrub was able to get a coalition going in regards to Libya πŸ™„ πŸ˜†

          I am so proud of how PBO handled this. That tool Chuck Todd (others too) had to admit the way this strategy was developed and executed was historic. I am not a war hawk, but PBO did what needed to be done and did it in partnership with our allies. It’s almost as if our allies (France, Italy) were falling all over themselves to participate unlike what happened with Iraq. This is because PBO has spent two years building relationships with these other countries and this is the fruits. Even Russia; they issued a statement against the strikes, but remember them did not vote “no” against the amendment which would have stopped the whole operation.

          PBO is simply brilliant. I pray it all ends well.

            Amy Holmes is talking out of arse about President Obama.She doesn’t understand why the President “dragged” himself in order to get the French;Brits;Arab League and others to go along with this unlike Shrug and she said the President won’t follow through :roll:.I mean did she want the President to put his cape on and fly to Libya and get between the rebels and Gadhafi’s people? πŸ™„

              Haha Fred we’re on the same wavelength. I’m watching MSNBC too and when I saw her come on I just knew pure and utter CRAP would spew from her mouth as it does when I see her on Real Time with Bill Maher..

            Proud of O: What do you think #43 is thinking as he watches this president in action, in concert with allied countries? Do you think he is honest enough to admit to himself that President Obama is doing a far better job than he was able to do? I sometimes wonder if seeing this President’s leadership in so many areas convicts #43 of his own ineptitude, and makes him regret reaching for a job that was so far beyond him?

              VC prezOfan2 I don’t think #43 knows what honesty looks like if it bit him in the butt. I remember the interview he gave Matt Lauer when he was promoting his book and he was still in denial about his administration’s Hurricane Katrina response and the war in Iraq. same with that blowhard Donald Rumsfeld who was on the view and didn’t apologize to the families of the soldiers we’ve lost in that unconscionable war. instead he said he was donating some of the proceeds of his book to some of the families to bring them comfort. like money is supposed to replace or fill up the hole left by a loved one’s death

                Money does seem to matter an awful lot to republican leaders, doesn’t it? UT, it is so hard for me to accept that so many of them have NO ‘saving grace’ within them, that they have little capacity for growth! I used to tell the teenagers I worked with that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and they just needed to focus on the former and minimize the latter. However, now that I’m looking more closely at the republicans, I have to admit that the relentless negativity and paucity of real character in these guys confound me. IMO people who can’t assess their behaviour are people who are restricted in their growth. President #43 has lots of space to do some growing!
