    Yay! Thanks for the laughs, NW and thank you for highlighting the Jane tweets on the previous thread.

    That Ambassador is so stiff he looks Photoshopped in!

    Normally I don’t read Politico, but saw a link to this somewhere else. Interesting read.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/01/bernie-sanders-foreign-policy-deficit-218431

    From the above article:

    “Not long after President Barack Obama ordered U.S. airstrikes in Libya in 2011, his national security adviser, Tom Donilon, trekked to Capitol Hill to brief Democratic senators. After a few minutes of discussion about the military operation, Bernie Sanders took the floor .

    To talk about the economy.

    ‘Sanders delivered a meandering manifesto about Democratic messaging on the economy,” says a former Senate chief of staff. “It wasn’t that his insights were wrong. It just wasn’t the time or place. Everyone was thinking, ‘Here goes Bernie!’ ‘”

      Yes…I’m sure the Constitutional lawyer does that every day. What a fucking idiot. I want them all to STFU and go away. Every one of them.

      the thugs have the majority in both houses and as well as supreme court. so why none of them have the guts to start impeaching him?

      vitriol and lies are the only things the thugs have to campaign with.

      Someone should ask Rubio four questions:

      1. Do you talk to the president every morning he wakes up?

      2. Have you ever read the U.S. Constitution?

      3. You are a member of Congress; are you aware that Congress is charged with the power of impeachment of the President who is violating the Constitution?

      4. If PRESIDENT Obama is violating the U.S. Constitution how come the Republican dominated Congress has not began impeachment proceedings to immediately remove him from office?

        Since Rubio has the attention span of a gnat, nath, not sure he’d get past Question No. 1, without needing a chug of water, but we could try this and see what develops. 🙂 (Laughing to keep from crying, myself. These people are beyond annoying.)

        • January 31, 2016 at 12:34 am

          “These people are beyond annoying.”

          I agree with you, J’OB. What infuriates me the most are the media people who let them get away with spewing total nonsense.

    Not that I had any inclination to vote for him, but Bernie has totally lost any access to my vote after signing off on that Bill Press book attacking President Obama. Why would they even write that shit now or ever? I just do not understand this bs at all.

    • 20 jacquelineoboomer
      January 30, 2016 at 9:48 pm

      I don’t understand it, either. But part of it is that they will never be or hope to be or figure out how to be President Obama. And it kills them. He gives them ulcers and nightmares just by being who he is. And when I say they “pale in comparison,” and that he comes out on top every time, you know what I mean, too. It’s pathetic.

      He brushes them off his shoulders, and we must, too. Otherwise, it’ll eat us alive. I’m surprised we made it this far, keeping our sanity, and it’s probably only because he has kept his, and led the way.

      Recently, I heard a quote about something or someone (I’ve forgotten) that I’ll try to bring over to President Obama. We don’t know how he does it, but he continues to retain his dignity, his path, and the authority of his position, despite all the obstacles. And that, alone, is truly HIS form of resistance to all of it. I’m for that.

        PBO has brought a giant revolution to this country. It’s just not an angry, shouting one.

        The fact that I can now afford to go to the doctor for checkups or if I have a concern is revolutionary.

        Being able to call my girlfriend the night of the election in ’08 and say ” OMG….the First Lady is Black” is revolutionary.

        Normalizing relations with Cuba is revolutionary.

        LGBT marriage and other milestones in LGBT rights is revolutionary

        Paris Climate Change Accord is revolutionary

        A nuclear deal with Iran is revolutionary

        Female head of the Federal Reserve is revolutionary

        Closing all secret detention facilities around the world is revolutionary

        Banning the use of antibiotics in food for Gov facilities is revolutionary

        Appointing the most diverse Cabinet in history with more women appointed than any other President is revolutionary

        The Claims Resolution Act, which provided $4.6 billion in funds for a legal settlement with black and Native American farmers who had been cheated out of government loans and natural resource royalties is revolutionary.

        I could go on and on….

        He is unparalleled in his ability to keep moving and brushing off the bs. I stopped trying to emulate that brilliance 😉 But haters gonna hate, and its apparent that Bernie is full of envy & jealousy. He will never sit in that “The President” chair. Evah.

      This is reflective of the difference between the Clinton campaign and the Sanders campaign. It actually seems as if Clinton is choosing the respect, empower, include approach thank goodness. Sanders, not. Those who comment here are very aware of the treatment of the President over these years in office by the cynical left. It has drawn ire in the same way the treatment by Birchers and greedy on the right has done. To now tap into the frustration and revulsion that was elicited by all those slights is about as dumb as it gets. Sanders has no common sense,

      • 39 sherijr
        January 31, 2016 at 11:04 am

        Yes, I don’t know what I’d do if Clinton was running from or attacking President Obama too. I just do not and never will understand any dem running from this amazing POTUS.

      Even before the book, he lost me by using Cornell West and Killer Mike as surrogates and copying PBO’s slogans and speeches from 2008 and pretending he is the original warrior for change.

        I admit to not knowing about that stuff as – except for POTUS and his admin- I’ve been staying away from most politics. But I know now and he’s not much better than a repub in my eyes.

      The “Christian Right” seem to have given up the pretense of being Christians if they would support a man who has rarely seen inside a church, who fought tooth and nail to avoid the military, who has been twice divorced & says weird things about his daughter, who attacks anyone who questions his reality etc etc etc

      I feel at times the America of the GOP is the alternate universe here on earth.

      • January 31, 2016 at 12:48 am

        You know, 99ts, my nephew who is a devout Christian and an evangelical tells me that the “Christian Right” has debased Christ’s message. He spent 25 years in your country, first as a law student and then as a law professor. He is now a law professor in New York. He is totally disgusted that the media has allowed the “Christian Right” to hijack Christianity.

          Our new retirement home is run by a religious organisation (protestant). We have had to supply all sorts of information about ourselves, but not once have we been asked as to our religion.

          I’m thinking your nephew must be able to separate his religion from his profession as apart from our more recent PM (now fortunately gone) there has rarely if ever been religion involved in the law over the past 100 or more years in my part of the world. Do hope your nephew enjoyed his time down under.

          • January 31, 2016 at 2:49 am

            He absolutely insists on separating church and state and respecting people of various faiths. He especially hates homophobes who he believes are misinterpreting the Bible. He absolutely loved the time he spent “down under.” And so does his three children (two are lawyers and the third is into acting). Although I am not religious, we get along very well. He wants me to set aside some vacation time to come with him to Australia.
