"That's right. Concern. Concern that the this country is run by a bunch of dumb asses." - Jackie Broyles
It is one of those songs one cannot help but think about the past. I can remember driving my car and when this song would come you MUST sing along.
Sit back and enjoy the song. See if it does not take you back to a simpler, more innocent time.
Windin' your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well another crazy day
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything
This city desert makes you feel so cold.
It's got so many people but it's got no soul
And it's taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything
You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're tryin'
You're tryin' now
Another year and then you'll be happy
Just one more year and then you'll be happy
But you're cryin'
You're cryin' now
Way down the street there's a light in his place
He opens the door he's got that look on his face
And he asks you where you've been
You tell him who you've seen
And you talk about anything
He's got this dream about buyin' some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he'll settle down in some quiet little town
And forget about everything
But you know he'll always keep movin'
You know he's never gonna stop movin
Cause he's rollin'
He's the rollin' stone
And when you wake up it's a new mornin'
The sun is shinin' it's a new mornin'
You're goin' on.

Here is another great memory from my youth. I looked forward to watching "Wild Wild West" every week. Robert Conrad WAS excellent in the role as James T. West and Ross Martin WAS Artemus Gordon.
The Will Smith-Kevin Klein version of "Wild Wild West" was a poor substitute.
Enjoy the opening clip below. It is the one where West punches the woman after the kiss. I always figured she deserved it. After all, if she messed with James West, she got what she deserved.
I thought that was the best part of the intro. The studios could not get away with that in this day and age.
Well, sit back and enjoy this opening intro. It brings back even more happy memories from my youth.

Conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh says the mainstream media attitude on Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo) is that he is too big to fail.
What CNN has planned for the night of April 29 (tomorrow) is one of several signs that this is the case. According to a report from the Associated Press, CNN has a big night of coverage planned for Obama's 100th day in office that will supplant normally scheduled programming.
The AP says: "The network will compile a national report card of Obama's performance, using opinion polls and a series of viewer surveys."
Because the main stream media is so full of liberal deceit we have no doubt Little Barry Soetoro will get straight "A's" from his adoring media worshipers.
"This is the perfect day to have commentary about how the president is doing and the perfect day to ask the public how they think the president is doing." - Sam Feist, CNN political director.

THIS WAS A TOTAL FUBAR!!! (If you do not know what the acronym "FUBAR" means; ask a military man.)
THIS WAS A TYPICAL SNAFU FROM THE WHITE HOUSE!!! (Same instruction for this acronym).
This is a classic example of what Conservatives have been warning you the masses about. Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo) is for Barack HUSSEIN Obama, only for Barack HUSSEIN Obama and just for Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
Has anyone gotten a job because of him yet?
Has anyone gotten a check in the mail yet?
Has anyone gotten a new car yet?
Does anyone have a better bank account since he got into office?
Did the 800 billion dollar stimulus package which he had to have right away do you any good?
Imagine, his people flew an Air Force One 747 over the city on a low approach with F-16 fighter jets flying in all so that he could get a photo.
This scared many of the people who saw it. Well, you can thank Little Barry Soetoro for that one!
This can't be blamed on George Bush? Does anyone have a new liberal excuse for Obama's screwups like this one?
Can't wait to hear Leno or Letterman. Of course, it was George Bushes fault. No, maybe it was Ronald Reagan's fault. Maybe it was President Eisenhower's fault. No, it had to be Lincoln's fault. No, no, no....it was Thomas Jefferson's fault. That's it. We'll blame it on the Founding Fathers.
The brain washed, criminal alien loving, welfare wanting, unwashed masses voted for him and his agenda. Now you got it. You have The Boy Wonder's SAS (Socialism and Stupidity).
It came out later in the day that The Big ZERO claimed he didn't know anything about it.
This guy is suppose to be on top of everything and he missed this. GIVE ME A BREAK!
If he didn't know, then he should have. After all, P Bo WAS elected to the office. He BETTER know when something like this happens. If he did not know or cannot know, then he has NO BUSINESS in the job.
This was a total POOCH SCREW and everyone knows it. I wonder which member of his administration will fall on his sward to protect BO from this idiotic decision.

"There's something wrong with people who read." - Jackie Broyles
More than 20,000 people stayed on Galveston Island last year despite a mandatory evacuation order as Hurricane Ike approached the Texas coast. Allison Castle, spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Pery, said there were 3,540 rescues in the region by state and local authorities, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
"They have that right to remain if they choose to,” said bill author Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas. “But they stay at their own peril, and they stay with the possibility that if recovery is necessary to preserve their lives, they’d pay the related cost. And that’s potentially a lot of money.”
The cost of a helicopter rescue is about $4,400 an hour.
The measure still needs approval from the House.
I think this is a great idea. When the experts say "GET OUT," you need to get you butt out of the area.
And please don't tell me about the "poor" who can't make it out - during Ike, there were MANY opportunities for those of lesser means to get out of harms way. Generally, the ones who stayed were the ones who valued their material things more than their lives.
It annoys me greatly for people to put other people's lives in jeopardy out of some juvenile sense of bravado. "Nah! I'm gonna ride it out!" Well ride it out by yourself buddy. Hopefully what happened during Ike will put a damper on that kind of thinking for a couple of decades. The only people in may need rescuing will be like some of the elderly folks on the Bolivar Peninsula who had rides not show up or tried to leave but couldn't. I do not mind paying for them to get out.
As for the others; if they stay and die, well I guess we will have a few less stupid people here in Texas to deal with.
"Life is hard. It's harder if you're stupid." - John Wayne

It is a fact that Texas was at one time a country. Much press has been given to this statement here in Texas. Many schoalrs have also put their two cents in; some claiming that Texas legally succeed from the United States while otehr say they gave up that right after the Civil War.
In either case, I did some research and came up with some interesting facts about the Lone Star State.
So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?
1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space industry.
2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.
3. Defense Industry — we have over 65% of it. The term “Don’t mess
with Texas,” will take on a whole new meaning.
4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will
need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we
don’t know. Why not ask Obama?
5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need and it’s too bad about
those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out
a way to keep them warm…
6. Computer Industry - we lead the nation in producing computer chips
and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments,
Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel,
AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Misconduct, Dallas Semiconductor,
Norte l, Alcatel, etc. The list goes on and on.
7. Medical Care - We have the research centers for cancer research,
the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well
as, other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone
employs over 65,000 people.
8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of
Texas, Texas AM, Texas Tech, Texas Ch ristian, Rice, SMU, University
of Dallas, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT (University of North
Texas ), Texas Women’s University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South
9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn’t
restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas, it’s a Right to Work
State and, therefore, it’s every man and woman for themselves. We just
go out and get the job done. And if we don’t like the way one company
operates, we get a job somewhere else.
10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics and insurance
11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard,
the Texas Air National Guard and several military bases. We don’t
have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles
and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 h ours if we need one.
If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of
Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers.
12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs and
several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let’s not forget
seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook
them so that they taste good. Don’t need any food.
13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States, and
twenty-three of the 100 largest cities in the United States, are
located in Texas. And Texas also has more land than California, New
York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts,
Maryland, Rhode Island and Vermont&n bsp;combined.
14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are
located in Texas.
15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don’t need to. You see,
nothing rusts in Texas, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well
This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of
Texas in good shape. There isn’t a thing out there that we need and
"We’ve got a great union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we’re a pretty independent lot to boot." - Rick Perry

"I'm sure he's worked on some guys named Dell." - Dunlap
Barack HUSSEIN Obama's (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo) top intelligence official privately told employees last week that "high value information" was obtained in interrogations that included harsh techniques approved by former President George W. Bush.
"A deeper understanding of the Al Qaeda network" resulted, National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair said in a memo, which the Associated Press obtained a copy of. In a public statement released the same day, Blair did not say that interrogations using the techniques had yielded useful information.
Let's see how The Boy Wonder responds to this?
"I like to think I would not have approved those methods in the past, but I do not fault those who made the decisions at that time, and I will absolutely defend those who carried out the interrogations within the orders they were given." - Dennis Blair
Wednesday, April 22, 2009
"It won't surprise you that I don't consider him a particularly reliable source," Clinton said, dismissing the former Vice President's claim that classified documents prove that harsh interrogations of terror suspects yielded vital intelligence.
Clinton cut off Rep Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), who demanded to know whether she would advise President Obama to release the documents. "I'm not going to share that with you," Clinton said.
This woman is beyond belief. She is as bad if not worse than her husband. She is also much more dangerous than her husband.
"It won't surprise you that I don't consider him a particularly reliable source. - Hillary RODHAM Clinton

Warm out today.

Said her name was Mimi.
Sounded like an angel come to Earth (Come to Earth)
When I went to meet her
Man, you should've seen her
Twice as tall as me
Three times the girth. (Girth)
Oh, my fat baby loves to eat. (Love to Eat)
A big ol' Buddha belly and her breasts swing past her feet (Feet)
My fat baby loves to eaaaaaattttt
My Big Ol' Fat Ass Baby loves to eat.

The State Television Channel of Venezuelan broadcast exclusive images of the last encounter between Hugo Chavez and Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo) at the end of Closing Ceremony of the Summit of the Americas.
Obama approached Chavez and was heard say to Chavez “Goodbye, my friend”.

You can sure bet the impeachment charges will come after the 2010 mid term elections. The liberal democrats are crapping in their pants right now, Not 3 months into his term of office, Barack HUSSEIN Obama as already spent more money, made more mistakes, and pissed off more people that any of his predecessors’ entire terms of office.
The conservatives will take back control of the House and/or the Senate in 2010 and the charges will fly. Watch for a large number of his appointees to bail as we get closer. They know they will be also targets and dragged into the mess that The Boy Wonder has created and will not want to be directly involved with the mess.
He will spend the last two years of his term mired in law suits, criminal and civil charges, and questions on his ability AND the legality of his first two years in office, that he will be lost. Because of this, he will be a lame duck President and will not get a second four years.
After that, he will be nothing more that a bad memory in our minds, a footnote in world history and a lesson for all students of history of how not to be a politician. Add that to the fact that his questionable birth certificate and other hidden records will become increasingly demanded by the public. All of this is a bee hive waiting to be hit by a stick, with it's contends wreaking havoc on everyone.
All in all, the framers would probably agree that it's better to impeach too often than too seldom. If presidents can't be virtuous, they should at least be nervous." - Joseph Sobran
At the Summit of the Americas in the two-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, The Boy Wonder signaled he was ready to accept Cuban President Raul Castro’s proposal of talks on issues once off-limits for Cuba, including the scores of political prisoners held by the communist government. Obama exchanged handshakes and pats on the back with Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, who once likened President George W. Bush to the devil.
You have to be kidding me. I cannot believe anyone who has a basic knowledge of history would unequivocally believe that drivel. Oprah's Love Child is offering his hand, which may I remind everyone, represents everyone in the United States, to two men who have vowed to hate and destroy us with all their might.
Some say he is extending the hand of diplomacy. I say he is offering up his hand, and when all is said and done, will be bloody from the conflict that he can not, will not and does not have the knowledge, desire, or cajones to fight.
Diplomacy is about find common ground for settlement of conflicts, not about talking to our enemies. These third world dictators are not of the mindset to come to common grounds on anything. They want what they want and care nothing about their opponent’s desires.
That is the basis of socialist theory. There are only two reasons BO is cozying up to our enemies. Either his wishes to be like them or he is already one of them. Read anything this man as written and it is based in socialist teaching, central control, and the subjugation of the masses.
The Big Zero is following the beliefs of his mother, his father and stepfather, and most of his mentors. The only thing he does not realize is that these despots view him as weak minded and unskilled at the "game." They will lead him (and our country) down the primrose path and when the time is right "lower the boom." He is playing at the job of POTUS. He will go down in history as the very worst President that this country will ever see.
"When Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez set foot in front of the Hyatt Regency Hotel yesterday chaos broke out, proving to many that he was a man of the people. In contrast, the move by United States President Barack Obama to dodge the media by taking a back route, meanwhile, did not go down well." - As written by Aabida Allaham in the Trinidad and Tobago Express

It is interesting that this is released just before the April 15 Tea Parties that are scheduled across America.
This passage the article itself:
A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “right wing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
“It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says.
Notice the clever use of “immigration” instead of “illegal immigration.” Of course genuine extremists groups, usurpers of the rights of others through violence, should be monitored. Individuals who reject “federal authority in favor of state or local authority," I don't think so.
This is just one step closer to the normative labeling of anyone that disagrees vocally with the The Boy Wonder's administration as extremist. Think about the following scenarios
If you speak out against illegal immigration (criminal aliens), you could be tagged as a right-wing extremist.
If you listen to Rush Limbaugh, you could be tagged as a right-wing extremist.
If you have military experience, you could be tagged as a right-wing extremist.
If you are against abortion, you could be tagged as a right-winged extremist.
If you support gun ownership, you could be tagged as a right-winged extremist.
If you are against tax increases, you could be tagged as a right-winged extremist.
If you believe in a Christian God, you could be tagged as a right-winged extremist.
If you against same-sex marriages, you could be tagged as a right-winged extremist.
If you believe in state rights, you could be tagged as a right-winged extremist.
I am very concerned about this report. Of course, Oprah's Love Child has not made a comment concerning this report. When he does comment, he could denounce it or say it is being misinterpreted.
However, think about this. Said report came from the DNS. It is headed by Janet Napolitano. She is one of BO's appointees. Therefore she does expound Little Barry Soetoro's ideas, or she would not have the job.
This is scary. Very scary indeed. If she (and the Obama administration) can issue suck a bold and totally invalid report and nobody calls them to task over it, this country is headed further into the abyss. I fear we are losing this country to the extreme left.

1. Float around the world as a child before getting dumped on your grandparents by irresponsible parents.
2. Gravitate to your extremist half of your bi-racial heritage.
3. Become a community organizer and take advantage of politically and racially advantageous opportunities.
4. Avoid taking specific positions by voting "Present" a record number of times on legislation.
5. As a Junior U.S. Senator, spend 2 years campaigning for the Office of the Presidency.
6. Have questionable relationships and issues under-reported by liberal media and ignored by ignorant supporters.
7. Become the most liberal and extremist U.S. President in history by playing the race and class envy cards, breaking campaign promise after campaign promise, and doubling the existing national deficit in first 60 days in office.
8. Laugh at ignorant supporters who continue to make excuses for your ability to appoint people of blatant ethical misbehavior to cabinet positions, your lack of executive experience, and your obvious attempts to drive the United States towards an already proven to fail Socialist economic system.
If you follow these eight simple rules, you too can become the POTUS. The only drawback it that the longer you hold the office, the more despised you will become.
Come to think of it, unemployment might be a better option.

Post WWII wars and casualties:
Harry Truman: Korea = 36,574 casualties
Lyndon Johnson: Vietnam = 58,209 casualties
democrat total = 94,783 casualties
Republican presidents Eisenhower and Nixon got us out of Korea and Vietnam.
George H.W. Bush: The Gulf War = 529 casualties
George W. Bush: The War on Terror = 4734 casualties (to this point)
Republican total 5,263
In any sane and logical world, how could they interpret that Republicans are war mongers?

I was dubious at first, since I usually hate television shows that are adapted from popular movies.
I am glad I was wrong. The characters are portrayed very well and the story lines keep the viewer intrigued from week to week.
In my humble opinion, the character that MAKES the show is Summer Glau. She plays terminator Cameron Phillips,
Glau's acting ability makes one believe that she is a cyborg. Her facial mannerisms and body movement, along with the way she delivers her lines are impeccable.And to add icing to the cake, she is a TEXAS girl. Born and bred in San Antonio.
She is so gorgeous. It is hard for me to believe I am old enough to be her father. Oh well, a fat, balding, old white man is allowed to look, isn't he?

Read the first line against:
"Surveys showing that 75 percent of U.S. citizens are against providing amnesty..."
The plan BO and his followers are pushing is as follows:
1. Bring illegal immigrants into the legal system by recognizing that they violated the law.
2. Impose fines and other penalties to fit the offense.
3. Prevent future illegal immigration by strengthening border enforcement.
4. Prevent future illegal immigration by cracking down on employers who hire illegal immigrants.
5. Create a national system for verifying the legal immigration status of new workers.

Read the article by clicking here. It is a very good read about how he views his days in the White House and how he spends his days now.
He stated he did not intend to criticize Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, and The Big Zero). One thing that came to my mind was the fact that, as far back as I can remember, Republican Presidents have not criticized their democratic successors or subsequent democrat Presidents.
I cannot remember one case of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan George H.W. Bush or George W. Bush having lashed out at a democrat residing in the White House.
On the other hand, I can recall many times that Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton lashed out at Republican Presidents.
George W. Bush shows a great deal of class in this article. I have stated before I did not agree with everything he did during his eight years in office. However on the whole, I think he did a good job as POTUS.
This is another case of Conservative Republican Presidents acting with class and show how they have more morals, more culture, and MORE CLASS than ANY democrat who ever held the office.
"Over the course of being president for eight years, you become, in some respects, immune to all the noise out there. He's secure in the place he's in. He's confident in the decisions he made. There's none of that 'Shoulda, woulda, coulda." - Dan Bartlett, a senior aide to Bush for more than a decade.
The DPS said Friday that noncitizens won’t be issued state driver’s licenses unless they meet stringent identification requirements, despite a judge’s decision to put the rules on hold until a trial on their legality.
Naranjo claims in her ruling "This case is not about illegal immigrants obtaining driver licenses, it is about legal residents who have been denied or threatened a denial of a driver license."
Right, Orlinda...Sure it is...Sure it is!!! This from a woman who a member of the Hispanic Bar Association of Austin, serves on the Texas Judicial Council and the Task Force for Indigent Defense, and volunteers with the Hispanic Women's Network of Texas. She is pro-criminal alien and pro-illegal immigration
In my humble opinion, she is just issuing rulings to protect her kinfolk.

Obama commented to reporters after meeting at the White House with members of his economic team, including Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, economic adviser Larry Summers and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
The Boy Wonder will never understand that middle class America made this country what it is. Of course he says there is a glimmer of hope for the country. That is what he is telling his underlings to say.
His press "lackeys" need to make it look as if he is doing something positive. All I have see him doing is running around the world, being played like a fool, and making America and Americans look weak to everyone. This is going to be a LONG 4 years until 2012.
"What we're starting to see is glimmers of hope across the economy. Whatever we do ultimately has to translate into economic growth and jobs. - Barack HUSSEIN Obama
The rules prevent thousands from getting standard-issue licenses even though they’re legally in the country, said the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, which is suing over the policy.
She said the rules, which specify that people who are not U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents must prove they’re legally here before getting a license, go beyond DPS authority.
Who would have thought? A democratic judge appointed by a Republican Governor and she takes the liberal side.
Another great move from Governor Zoolander (Rick Perry).
"This case is not about illegal immigrants obtaining driver licenses, it is about legal residents who have been denied or have been threatened a denial of a driver license." - Judge Orlinda L. Naranjo

I have been a fan of the Carpenters for years. They were one of my favorite groups growing up. I guess I was just in love with Karen Carpenter. Never the less, I always liked them and played their 8-track tapes in my first car.
Below is a video that shows their very first television performance, performing the song "Dancing In The Street" on the 'Your All American College Show' in 1968.
If you listen closely , you can hear Richard saying "No, it is not an organ. It's an electric piano"
In addition, check out that drum work by a then 18-year-old Karen.
And if that isn't enough, you get to see the trio (yes, the Dick Carpenter Trio, to be exact) win the top trophy and prize money handed out by none other than Zsa Zsa Gabor, and William Shatner!!
This was the performance that caused John Wayne to think that Karen would be perfect for the female lead in his upcoming film "True Grit." Karen did read for the part but was beaten out by popular Kim Darby for the role.
The quality of this video is poor, but it is worth watching.
"We came out right in the middle of the hard-rock period... it was hard-rock everywhere! But we were ready to make our music, you know? And it was such a turnaround, I guess it caught people by surprise.' - Karen Carpenter

What will come next? A special dorm for those who are into S&M or possible bestiality?
I think they are opening a whole can of worms that will create more problem that they deal with.

I have a huge problem with one of the passages in his speech. Here is the piece that I have problems with:
"I also want to be clear that America's relationship with the Muslim community, the Muslim world, cannot, and will not, just be based upon opposition
to terrorism. We seek broader engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect. We will listen carefully, we will bridge misunderstandings, and we will seek common ground. We will be respectful, even when we do not agree. We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country. The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country — I know, because I am one of them."
After I heard about this passage on the radio, as I was coming home this afternoon, I got on the Internet to look for the exact text. I question one sentence more than others.
"We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so
much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country."
What has the Islamic faith done to shape the United States? We have been a country for 233 years. I am not sure how long a large number of Muslims have lived in the USA, but it cannot be very many, at least until recently.
I cannot think of one thing the Islamic faith has done to better the USA. If anyone can help me to understand what they have done, I would appreciate it.
Little Barry Soetoro has an agenda when it comes to Muslims and the Islamic faith. I believe now as I have since he burst onto the national scene that he has definite ties to Islam and I think said ties are not a good thing for the United States.
"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." - Quote from page 261 of Obama’s book "Audacity of Hope."
In my personal opinion, it was TACKY for BO to give Queen Elizabeth an iPod. It even had video of HIS speeches on it. What a mook he is!

YES..IT IS TRUE!!!.
I am going to have to get me one of these. I will put it in my classroom right next to my Chia Homer Simpson.

In reality, the leaders of these countries are laughing behind BO's back. They know they have his number and he is not to be taken seriously. Little Barry Soetoro is the laughing stock of the world (but certainly NOT to his face).
He is being played like a naive little boy in the schoolyard. Remember the old adage: "Keep you friends close and your enemies closer." Don Corleone knew how the world was (and is).

The Boy Wonder, who is nearly word perfect when reporters are asking him set-up questions and he has the use of his teleprompter. John Crace, who wrote the article, decodes what Oprah's Love Child was really thinking ...
Nick Robinson: "A question for you both, if I may. The prime minister has repeatedly blamed the United States of America for causing this crisis. France and Germany both blame Britain and America for causing this crisis. Who is right? And isn't the debate about that at the heart of the debate about what to do now?"

Natasha: Boris, how are we going to steal car from moose and squirrel?
Boris: Easy, we are going into the used car business.
Natasha: On purpose?

In return, the Queen gave the President a silver framed signed photograph of herself and the Duke of Edinburgh - apparently a standard present for visiting dignitaries.
Can you believe you that? The POTUS giving the Queen of England an iPod.
WHAT WAS HE THINKING? Actually, it has come out that Little Barry Soetoro gave the duty of picking out the gift to his wife Michelle ROBINSON Obama (aka Cheapskate, No Thought Give Giver).
But what do you expect out of a couple of people who have never had a REAl job and view themselves as elites.
