Obama Shakes Khadafy's Hand in Italy

What a big deal Democrats made of old photographs of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld shaking the hand of Saddam Hussein decades ago. You better believe the Democrats will excuse their Lord and Master shaking the hand of Khadafy who harbored the terrorists responsible for blowing up Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

"On the taxpayer's dime"

“You can’t get corporate jets, you can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers dime.” - Barack Obama, www.bloomberg.com, April 7, 2009

If your last name is Obama, you sure can.
Michelle took their two daughters to London in a 757 "on the taxpayer's dime."
They had a chauffer-driven limousine with a huge entourage of security vehicles "on the taxpayer's dime." Do Democrats care? Not so much.



"In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much," she said. "See, that's why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service, " Michelle Obama

First Lady requires more than 20 attendants
No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn't perform any official duties. But this hasn't deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession.

Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.

How things have changed! If you're one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michelle are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public:

1. $172,2000 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)

2. $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)

3. $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)

4. $102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)

5. Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

6. $90,000 - Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

7. $84,000 - Lelyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)

8. $75,000 - Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)

9. $70,000 - Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)

10. $65,000 - Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

11. Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

12. $62,000 - Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)

13. $60,000 - Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)

14. Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)

15. $52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary To The First Lady)

16. $50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide To The First Lady)

17. $45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)

18. Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)

19. $40,000 - Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

20. $36,000 - Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)

21. Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)

22. Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)

There has never been anyone in the White House at any time that has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady's social life.

One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President's own pocket.

Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and "First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom travelled aboard Air Force One to Europe .

"Uh, a (sic) even deeper hole"

Uh, if Obama is, uh, such a wonderful, uh, speaker, uh, why must he always use teleprompters as crutches? And if you're reading from your teleprompter, why can't you, uh say "an even deeper hole" instead of "a even deeper hole"?

And that's one reason why we took swift and aggressive action in the first month of my administration, uh to pull our economy [CRASH] Oh goodness. Sorry about that guys. uhh, to pull our economy back from the brink, uh, including the largest and most sweeping economic recovery plan in our nation's history.
If we had not taken that step, our cities would be in a (sic) even deeper hole, ... - Obama (www.news.aol.com, July 14, 2009)

~July 19, 2009

On Monday, Obama spoke about health care reform at the Childrens National Medical Center in Washington, Obama.

"The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system," Obama said in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers. "And greater stability and security to America's families and businesses."


"We have just gone through one of the most secretive administrations in our history. And not releasing, I think, these records at the same time, Hillary, that you're making the claim that this is the basis for your experience, I think, is a problem," Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, charged during a presidential debate Tuesday. - www.cnn.com, Friday, November 2, 2007

Obama refuses to release:

1. His birth certificate
2. His records from Occidental College
3. His records from Columbia
4. His records from Harvard
5. His application to the Illinois State Bar, which would have cleared up intermittent allegations that his application may have been inaccurate.
6. His official papers as a state legislator in Illinois. Nor did he produce correspondence, such as his schedules of appointments or letters from lobbyists, from his days in the Illinois state Senate.
7. The names of those who donated at least one-third of the $750 million he raised.
8. Obama released just one brief document detailing his personal health. McCain, on the other hand, released what he said was his complete medical file, totaling more than 1,500 pages.

Ow, my head!

If Bush had bumped his head like this, it would have been on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and all the newspapers, especially the New York Times.

We can no longer afford to spend as if deficits don't matter and waste is not our problem. We can no longer afford to leave the hard choices for the next budget, the next administration -- or the next generation. - Barack Obama, May 7, 2009


What a hoot. Obama has already smashed every deficit record on earth.


9,000 Gallons of Fuel Burned on Earth Day

Who better to lecture you on cutting your carbon dioxide emissions than The One who burned 9,000 gallons of fuel on Earth Day to fly to Des Moines, Iowa, lecture to the fawning crowd there, and then plant a tree before flying back to Washington, D.C.

"YOU: Cut those carbon dioxide emissions 80% by 2050 or else! Moi, non."

Obama writes note to family of pedophile Michael Jackson, but not to families of WWII veterans Karl Malden or Ed McMahon.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs added that the president's "condolences went out to the Jackson family and to fans that mourn his loss."

$540 Lanvin sneakers
Michelle Obama made her usual big splash at a Washington, D.C. food bank, handing out free food.

How much food could you buy and hand out with the $540 Michelle spent on her Lanvin sneakers?

(www.nydailynews.com May 1)

$875 Purse

When you're as arrogant as the Obamas, too much is never ever enough. Not content with $540 sneakers, Michelle spent $875 on a VBH patent leather clutch.

For $875, one would at least expect real leather and not fake. Ah well, phony leather for Mrs. Phony.

Court Case: Chickens v. Farmers

July 6, 2009

Obama has picked Harvard law professor Cass Sunstein, his adviser and longtime friend, to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, an office that has power to review and assess all draft regulations proposed within the administration.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) has blocked President Obama’s candidate for regulation czar because Sunstein has argued that animals should have the right to sue humans in court.

"Change" - animals suing humans. Is that intellectual or what?
Not so much.

AMA Boos Obama


WASHINGTON — Barack Obama isn't used to hearing boos.

For all the young president's popularity, the response he got Monday from doctors at an American Medical Association meeting was a sign his road is only going to get rockier as he tries to sell his plan to overhaul the nation's health care system.

The boos erupted when Obama told the doctors in Chicago he wouldn't try to help them win their top legislative priority _ limits on jury damages in medical malpractice cases. - www.huffingtonpost.com, June 15, 2009

Teachers Boo Obama

July 5, 2008 The presumptive Democratic nominee angered teachers (again) at the NEA conference Saturday when discussing his proposal to pay teachers more if their students perform well on tests or if they take on added responsibilities.

They did the same thing last year when he mentioned the plan at their meeting in Philadelphia. Obama addressed the group Saturday via satellite.

"I know this wasn't necessarily the most popular part of my speech last year. But I said it then and I say it again today because it's what I believe."
Michelle Isn't Used to Hearing Boos Either

Michelle Obama booed over 'Nevada'

Posted: Friday, January 18, 2008 5:32 PM by Mark Murray

From NBC/NJ's Aswini Anburajan
It's not just Brian Williams who's getting in trouble for mispronouncing Nevada.

Michelle Obama at a town hall in Reno today got booed loudly for saying, Nah-VAH–da rather than the more nasally, neh-VAAD-ah.

We're so happy to be back in Nevada," Michelle began before being drowned out by a loud chorus of "Booos!" from the large crowd.

Catching her mistake she shouted into the microphone, "NEVADA NEVADA NEVADA!!!!"

"Neh-VAAD-dah!!! Neh-VAAD-ah!" she continued to scream out to loud laughter.
Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy, which one is the President of France again?

June 15, 2009

I had no idea. The Obama-fawning press kept it very quiet. But in March of this year, just after snubbing British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, it seems President Obama and his Brain Trust sent a letter to the man they thought was the President of France. The problem is, they sent the letter to the former president, Jacques Chirac. If Bush had made such an incredible blunder, the New York Times and all the prime time news liberals would have had a field day with it.

Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez called Obama “a poor ignoramus” who “should read and study a little to understand reality.”

London newspapers are howling over a string of alleged snubs by Obama to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown during his visit to Washington last week — including a squabble over presidential gift-giving.

"President Obama has been rudeness personified towards Britain," sniffed The Daily Telegraph Friday. "His handling of the visit of the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, to Washington was appalling." - www.nydailynews.com, March 7, 2009


Comparing Presidents

Independence Day Fireworks

Amidst riots in Iran over a probable election fraud there (is ACORN in Iran too?), the Obama administration invited Iranian officials to July 4th celebrations.
When Fox News announced this latest Obamanation, the Prince of "Change" quickly changed direction, and retracted the ill-advised invitations. Likewise. Obama's tone has finally changed and gotten mildly harsh only after worldwide protest over Iranian election fraud.
Misuse of Government Grant

"It is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General," the president wrote. "That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General." - Barack Obama, quoted in www.washingtonexaminer.com, June 11, 2009

Obama never learns, does he. "Vetting" to Obama HopenChangers means cruising in a Chevrolet sports car.

AmericaCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin was summarily fired by Obama after the I.G.'s office uncovered misuse of an $850,000 grant to St. HOPE Academy, the nonprofit headed by Obama's personal friend, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. As proof of wrongdoing, St. HOPE gave back $400,000 of the money. This is hardly the kind of "transparency" Obama promised to give Americans.

In Cairo, BozoBama said "The less we use our power, the greater it will be." - June 4, 2009, Cairo Egypt

Tyrants like Hitler and Hussein will always agree that Americans should not use our power, while they use their own to brutalize and conquer.

"Our second president, John Adams, said 'The United States has in itself no character of emnity (sic) against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims...' " - Barack Obama

The word is enmity, not emnity.


Welcome, uh, to Cinco de Quatro


"Welcome, uhhh, to Cinco de Quatro" - Barack Obama on May 4, 2009


What Obama meant to say was "Quatro de Mayo" since, as he said, they
were "a day early." But Cinco de Quatro is Spanish for the fifth
of four, which makes no sense. Had Bush said this, the liberal
press would have run it as a headline story, and Democrats everywhere
would be citing it as yet more evidence of Bush Stupidity.

But the Democrats have one standard for conservatives and an entirely
different and separate standard for themselves.


"Obama humbled by limits of job" - USA Today, April 30, 2009

And he's been "humbled" by the limits even of the powers of the presidency.

Obama isn't humbled by his own limitations, of course. Narcissists don't think they have any. But Obama is humbled by his inability to control you and everyone else more. This is the Democrat Way - control, and power. Lots of power.


"In addition to John -- sorry, the, uh -- I just noticed that I -- I jumped the gun here. Go ahead and move it (the teleprompter) up. (laughter) I'd already -- I had already introduced all you guys." - Barack Obama at the National Academy of Sciences, April 26, 2009 when his teleprompter failed him and he knew not what to say.

Had Bush made this gaffe, it would have been on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NPR, and all the newspapers, as further evidence of Bush "stupidity." With Obama, it is only a trivial slip.


“What you’re now seeing is, profit and earning ratios are starting to get to the point where buying stocks is a potentially good deal if you’ve got a long term perspective on it." - Barack Obama, March 3, 2009, in a press conference with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown (www.cbsnews.com)

P/E ratio is the commonly used term universally known in the investment and business community to mean "price to earnings ratio," not "profit and earning ratios."
That Barack Obama cannot use the most elementary business terms is not the least bit surprising, given his abysmal lack of managerial and business experience, not to mention common sense.


"And, uh, one of the points I want to make is that if you actually took the number of Muslims (sic) Americans, uh, you know, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world, and so there-there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two people (sic)."

"One of largest Muslim countries"

The man's a genius.

1,824,358 Muslims in America
210,000,000 Muslims in Indonesia
158,000,000 Muslims in Pakistan
138,000,000 Muslims in Bangladesh
76,000,000 Muslims in Turkey
74,000,000 Muslims in Nigeria
74,000,000 Muslims in Egypt
62,000,000 Muslims in Iran
33,000,000 Muslims in Algeria
33,000,000 Muslims in Morocco
31,000,000 Muslims in Afghanistan
30,000,000 Muslims in Ethopia
28,000,000 Muslims in Saudi Arabia

"It's embarrassing - it's embarrassing , when when, uh Eu - Europeans come over here. They all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe, and and ah all we can say is, 'Merci beaucoup.'" - July 8, 2008

"Uh, it was also interesting to see that, uh, political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There's a lot of, uh, I don't know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing, and you know, people are, you know, pursuing their interests, and uh, uh... April 4, 2009

Obama the Ignorant decried Americans' failure to speak foreign languages, and yet he is woefully ignorant of the fact that German, not Austrian, is spoken in Austria. The press endlessly characterize Bush as "stupid" for his gaffes. With Obama, it's completely overlooked.



"There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America--there is the United States of America." - Obama on July 27, 2004 at the Democrat National Convention

"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life." - Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor

But only if she's a Democrat. The Democrat Party trampled Judge Clarence Thomas who rose up from an existence more bleak and difficult than that of Sonia Sotomayor simply because Thomas is a Republican.


“We only have a certain number of them (translators who speak Arabic) and if they are all in Iraq, then it’s harder for us to use them in Afghanistan.” - Obama in Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Iraqis speak Arabic, except in the north where they speak Kurdish. The Afghanis speak Pashto or Farsi.

George Bush was repeatedly called "a chimp" by Democrats. How about a little payback.



Can you name any of Obama's accomplishments, Congressman? (No)
