it may be time to impeach the president

After all, Onyango ‘Omar’ Obama, the guy arrested last week in Massachusetts for allegedly ‘operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol’ and who was allegedly not legally in the United States, is the son of ….. deep breath, let’s get this right ….. the President’s grandfather’s third wife (the President’s father was born to his grandfather’s second wife).

In other words, Onyango and the President are almost one, they are so close.

Yeah, yeah, it’s true, George W – and not his step-uncle – had his very own drink driving conviction and was an alien too (he hailed from Planet Chump), but that’s different.

Sheesh, impeachment?

****

Needless to say, this is the lead story on GOPolitico’s section on the President.

It’s interesting, this is the photo of Onyango Obama released by the Framingham police, a standard mug shot:

This is what GOPolitico has done to the photo:

Why did they do that? Did they think a grainy black and white close-up would make the man look …… sinister?

Oh dear.

The Arizona Republic: Smiling and grateful to be alive, Pam Simon, one of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ wounded staffers, returned to the office Friday to heal in the company of her colleagues.

“It was really important to see the rest of my Giffords family. We are like a family,” said Simon, 63. “I think it’s part of the healing to circle back and to have the energy of friends and people who love us.”

Simon, who works as a community-outreach coordinator for Giffords, survived two gunshots, one to the wrist and another in the chest that traversed her body and lodged in her buttocks.

prayers for Gabrielle Giffords

(November, 2010: Representative Gabrielle Giffords hand delivers an Obama doll to the President)

ABC: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was among as many as 12 people wounded in a shooting at a Tucson, Ariz., grocery store where she was holding a campaign event. ABC affiliate KGUN-TV in Tucson reported that as many as 12 people had been shot, including Giffords. A law enforcement source told KGUN that the shooter was in custody. Giffords, a Democrat, was scheduled to hold a “Congress on Your Corner” event today at a supermarket in northwest Tucson.

President Obama: 

”This morning, in an unspeakable tragedy, a number of Americans were shot in Tuscon, Arizona, at a constituent meeting with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. And while we are continuing to receive information, we know that some have passed away, and that Representative Giffords is gravely wounded.
”

“We do not yet have all the answers. What we do know is that such a senseless and terrible act of violence has no place in a free society. I ask all Americans to join me and Michelle in keeping Representative Giffords, the victims of this tragedy, and their families in our prayers.”

This is Rep. Gabrielle Giffords talking last year about threats made against her and other Democrats:
