ADDITION:  PULLLLEEEAAAZE watch my John King/David Gergen video below.....it's important!   Thanks!

Great collection of quotations!

Politicians are scum.

Where are the statesmen today? Scarce as hens' teeth!

Retired Marine said...

So Obama the American Hater, the Jew Hater, the Socialist said
"In his war on American exceptionable, President Obama has turned the sights on exceptional Americans. If you've built a successful business, it wasn't your dream or your sweat — somebody else made it happen. The unbridled disdain President Obama has for the entrepreneurs who work hard and risk everything was made plain when he told supporters in Roanoke, Va.: "If you've got a business — you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." This was stunning news and a colossal slap in the face to the millions of small-business owners who get up every day "


When I heard Obama saying this, I thought perhaps now people will see what he really is, a perfect example of what we don't want and certainly don't need.
What more would a communist have to say to convince people that he is a communist?

This evil cretin makes me sick. I can NOT believe someone so blatantly communist was allowed to become our President.

How any American, (unless you're a black racist) can vote for him is beyond me.

The fact is, that Obama a disciple of Saul Alinsky, admirer of a coterie of Marxists, Black radicals, and other professional haters of America, and Whites--has the major media sewn up. He has public employee unions that are going to be energized because of Scott Walker in Wisconsin. His minions will also fire up the African-American and Latin communities about racism. Given Obama's Chicago background, he'll have no problems with dead people and illegal aliens voting for him.

I'm voting for Romney because I don't think this election is one in which I can afford a protest vote--but I'm still pessimistic

Joe said...

AOW: "Where are the statesmen today?"

Indeed!

And where are the orators who can speak without incessant "uhhs," "umms," "likes" and "you knows?"

Where are the leaders without "I" trouble?

This is my favorite and is on my classroom wall:

Z said...

My Cons. Thoughts...WELCOME! You're right...if we lose this election, we'll never recognize the America we knew and loved...ever again.

I'm thinking of reposting a video by a Democrat filmmaker I posted during the 2008 primaries.....I'm so glad I found it in my archives. It's a stunner about Dem. fraud...

Retired Marine...I don't get it, either... and welcome to you, Sir...and thank you for your service.

AOW, isn't that a great list!??

Elbro: perfect!

SF...you're a cynic (I like that :-)

all good comments; I'm so glad you enjoyed these, too!

Clarence Darrow FTW! Just look at what we have right now!

Lisa said...

To Retired Marine-Obama never did anything on his own ,he thinks because he had to have help his whole life that others do too.

Ducky's here said...

I know Christopher Hayes writs for The Nation so he must be a commie but I'd would strongly recommend folks read his latest book,"Twilight of the Elites".

Gives a lot of insight into how we got into this mess and why the political process won't get us out of it.

This is my favorite. Furthermore, I think Obama is the most perfect example of this quote!

Right Truth....think any TV media will cover THAT? (no) WOW....that Lib got it RIGHT!

Pris, Obama really does seem like a whore. The media didn't even advertise that the reason big Pharma went from hating the health care plan to loving it (I'll never forget my head spinning that day...wondering "WHAT?") is that he promised them to make it tougher to get cheaper drugs from Canada, etc.
IMagine? That's a whore.

Z said...

PRIS...SO FUNNY! I got this in an email JUST NOW and, since it kind of applies, I thought I should post it here!

"George W Bush and Barack Obama
somehow ended up at the same
barber shop.

As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken. The barbers were even afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics. As the barbers finished their shaves, the
one who had Obama in his chair
reached for the aftershave.

Obama was quick to stop him saying, 'No thanks, my wife Michelle will smell that and think I've been in a whorehouse.'

The second barber turned to Bush and said, 'How about you sir?' Bush replied, 'Go ahead; my wife doesn't know what
the inside of a whorehouse smells like.'

"Sarah Silverman Will Have Sex for Obama Campaign Money.."

Wonder if her Rabbi father is proud of her?

This is a time when I think the Islamists have a point? Slut-ism...isn't popular except from the deviant perverts of Hollywood or the back seats of rented Limos.

Kid said...

@Retired Marine. It is mind bending. Also, at least Hitler Loved Germany !

And Lisa makes a good point about how people can't understand anything that doesn't resonate with their own life experience, in general. obama is a Loser. he can't imagine anyone being anything without the big hand pushing you along.

@Z, Great collection of quotes!

It's the TRIPLE D! Dumb, Dependent and Democrat. at best.

Back to politicians however. Name more than 10 who have any real life experience. Most are scum sucking lawyers, unable to make a decent living in their chosen field and therefore select politics as a fall back position.

Imagine that POS j edwards if he'd actually managed to become a heartbeat away from the White House.

The kids aren't paying attention. They wouldn't be able to decifer the information even if they were. Generalization, but one that brings far too many loser voters into view these days.

We're going to find out just how many pathetic losers we have in this country Nov 5th.

Ok, here's some humor. Beyonce sent michele obama a Love Letter. Seriously. google it. hahahaaa

I also read where Biden isn't allowed to wear pants with zippers anymore. Velcro only. Too many accidents and concern about loss of blood for ole #2.

Impertinent said...

"I also read where Biden isn't allowed to wear pants with zippers anymore. Velcro only. Too many accidents and concern about loss of blood for ole #2."


You're assuming of course that he and the One...have the necessary parts? Hold on...I'll have to check Obama's composite "girlfriends" to see if they had any such contact / luck with the chosen "One".

I don't think so though..as his bio claims he's walked on water.

Although I'm sure that Moochelle has his locked up.

Kid said...

You're assuming of course that he and the One...have the necessary parts?

There's only a single part of the three part harmony that extends into the zipper area ya know. No requirement for round fuzzy things in this scenario.

Gosh, I hope I wasn't too graphic.

Impertinent said...

"There's only a single part ..."


Yes I do..a single...leg? Don't tell me that he stands up too?

Kid said...

Imp, Maybe it was like this - Mein Fehrer! at a biden campaign event and a man in a wheel chair....

Impertinent said...

Far as I can tell Kid....there are very few that have the requisite parts which were common to all patriots and warriors prior to ....Clinton?

Girls laugh...I know....yet...I can't think of a LT. Commander yet that's female?

Not sorry..I don't want ladies in combat. It's males domain and job..period. Hillary is a fine example of what doesn't work...with our male enemies.

Kid said...

IMP. I agree. Maybe in some very niche areas, such that Julia Child's worked in in WWII.
But as I commented on Carol's blog just a few minutes ago - Infantry? Hauling 80 lbs of kit plus 80 lbs of ammo up a mountain in Afghanistan? Maybe one woman in 10 million could do that.

Impertinent said...

"Maybe one woman in 10 million could do that..."


And I still...wouldn't want that woman exposed to combat. Period.

They have no idea....none....and I'm not willing to condemn one woman to that hell.

Kid said...

IMP, Yea, Agreed.

Kid said...

IMP, PS - It's a communist idea.

Z said...

Imp...Dennis Prager played her plea this morning on the radio..it's so disgusting it's unbelievable..
She said she'd "Scissor him" in a bikini because she couldn't F him as she's "a good girl" or something like that......it was unbelievable.

"Sarah Silverman Will Have Sex for Obama Campaign Money.."

Wonder if her Rabbi father is proud of her?

This is a time when I think the Islamists have a point?"

I'm not far from that feeling, either. Islam's going to LOSE looking at OUR smut culture?
HER FATHER IS A RABBI? ARE YOU SERIOUS?

Now folks..picture this: a Republican woman says anything remotely like that. Think it'd get some outrage? OH MY GOD WOULD IT EVER!

Z said...

"Also, at least Hitler Loved Germany"

Kid, this about did me in!! :-) !

Z said...

Kid, funny you should say that because they FINALLY found one girl who did date Obama and VANITY FAIR did a big deal article on it about how wonderful she thought he was and little details of their relationship and they'd gone to a play and had a little argument but he was so sensitive..

the problem is, the woman quoted says she never said any of that.

ONE GIRLFRIEND....and Michelle.

that's all, folks!

Kid said...

Thanks Z. and Hitler? True!

the problem is, the woman quoted says she never said any of that.


Shocka!

Ya, BIG SURPRISE!

liberal douche.....did someone actually teach you how to be a consumate a-hole...or did it come naturally?

you are the poster idiot for planned parenthood.

beamish said...

There certainly have been some asinine and absurd statements made in this election season.

"Mitt Romney is a conservative" [Ann Coulter] is probably the most ludicrous one I've heard.

beamish said...

Besides the always insulting and nonsensical "The Tea Party movement is right-wing" boilerplate, of course.

beamish, we get it; you don't like Romney and nobody's as conservative as you are.
again and again and again and again.

Thanks for that - Z.

"PRIS...SO FUNNY! I got this in an email JUST NOW and, since it kind of applies, I thought I should post it here!"

Hi Z,
I got that one too! It's hilarious.

Kid said...

Beamish. Seriously dude. If you want to support obama, support the sucker. It's a free country. Be a man about it already.

beamish said...

I will be supporting the most right-wing / conservative-leaning electable candidate of those officially running.

Unfortunately, that's Obama.

beamish said...

My support for Obama grows each time it is promised that his second term will destroy the America that believes Mitt Romney is a conservative.

beamish said...

Perhaps we wouldn't be in this economic mess if people born before 1965 paid their share of the national debts off.

beamish said...

But Romney's going to "save" your Medicare....
