The president is really, really cheesed off at you

Also, his pants are around his ankles.

I have no idea why this image popped into my head as illustrative of Obama’s current dilemma. It just seems the more he tries to play hardball, the sillier he looks.

You know, lefties have a point. Obama has done so many things to disappoint them — from keeping Guantanamo open to backing off on EPA regs to, well, lots of things — in many ways, he’s governed like George Bush’s third term. So why are us wingnuts so hard on him?

Well, thing is, I *am* pleased when he does something out of character, like stepping up drone strikes or getting Osama. Of course I am. But it’s all so terribly random. We know his heart is with the left, but his actions are all over the board.

Clearly, much of what he’s doing at the moment is with an eye to the 2012 elections. But he’s not very good at pandering, so it comes off as merely erratic and incoherent.

Much power and completely unpredictable? Bad combo.

Sadly, I did not Photoshop the Che Guevara boxer shorts. There are many, many online.

That picture reminded me of this Snickers advert from the 2000 election:


“I invented pants!” *hee*

I have a Che! Still Dead! t-shirt I bought from Val Prieto and I would love to have some Che toilet paper, but Che boxers, I’ll pass thanks.

Did Vita make out ok this morning?

La Weasel is abed (Badgers is more nocturnal than weasels – ha!) and I’m happy to report, dear little Vita did fine.

Thanks for asking 🙂

I’m just going to call it the way I see it.
You have a half white half black mulatto mongrel running your country.
And if that doesn’t scare the hell out of you all, it should.

Why am I reminded of the “Vork” creature/parasite-hunter from Farscape? It was the episode where-in the real Rygel was cocooned, by the jumping insect-like parasite, which then created a doppelganger to infect and feed on the entire crew.

Why, yes, I did just recently re-watch the entire series again for the *mumble* time. Why do you ask?

Perhaps, it is just me.

I kinda like the idea of leaving skidmarks on Che Guevara’s mug. It would bring a smile to my face every time I unleashed a big ol’ juicy fart. Of course that usually leaves me with a smile anyway, but you get the idea.

Che Guevara underwear? I thought he was the greatest tee shirt salesman on earth? Weasel: excellent artwork here. How do you get those pensive spoilt child looks on Obama-man? Just perfect.

My prediction: he’s going to get his ass handed to him in 2012 (if I have anything to do with it…). He won’t handle it well. He will melt down. It will be pathetic. And hilarious. It will take a long time for the stoopid American left to rise again.

Let’s plan for it and make it happen. For the children.

Why do us wingnuts despise Obama?

Because he does a lot of substantive things we despise.

Like packing the Justice Department with nothing but hard-left political activists, from Eric Holder down. He hasn’t come out for same-sex marriage. Instead he ordered DoJ to abandon the Defense of Marriage Act. And right now DoJ is arguing that there is no “ministerial exception” to employment discrimination laws – a radical position opposed by nearly all churches, even the mainstream churches where the central organization has been taken over by leftists.

Like steering tons o’money to ACORN, in defiance of Congressional appropriation language.

Like trying to enact card check unionizing through regulatory fiat.

Like Gunwalker (Holder’s DoJ again).

Like squandering almost a trillion dollars on a useless “stimulus” program.

Like giving away tens of billions of dollars to the UAW through the Chrysler and GM bailouts.

Like the monstrous health-care bill he rammed through Congress.

Like his policy of not deporting any illegal aliens, except those who have committed the most flagrant crimes, and legally harassing states which try to crack down on illegals.

Like the NLRB’s attacks on Boeing and right-to-work states.

Like his consistent refusal to oppose the Iranian mullahcracy, or support the pro-democracy forces there. (One of the Obama administration’s first acts was to cut off funding for a little NGO whose mission was to document human rights abuses in Iran.)

Like his squandering billions of $ in “green” subsidies.

Like his Department of Education’s new rule of procedure for colleges hearing sexual-harassment charges: burden of proof on the accused, no public hearing, and no right to confront witnesses or see the evidence.

Like unqualified far-left judicial appointments (OK, Goodwin Liu backed out, but only after a blizzard of negative press. Others almost as bad have slipped through.)
He has continued some Bush-era policies where reversal would be obvious political suicide. But it sure doesn’t look like he wants to. It took him how long to accept Petraeus’ call for more troops? It took how much public outrage to get him to cancel the civilian trial of Khalid Sheikh Muhammad? Or to get his EPA to hold off on draconian and unnecessary new regulations?

He’s done immense damage, and that he hasn’t done more is more due to caution than any good priciple he holds.

“It will take a long time for the stoopid American left to rise again.”

It will start the day after the inauguration of O’s successor, who will have the shortest “press honeymoon” ever.

Actually, it will start the day after the election.

Damn, wrong again. It’s already started.

Understood, but there was no excuse for inviting him to ramble. . .And I suspect he thought you wouldn’t remove the entire post because in the past you’re removed only the offending sentence. Although I may be giving him too much credit for paying attention. Or even being able to pay attention

Mike C – of course the Press will start in right away. But just like after Carter, the people in the country will not be listening to them. It drove them nuts. Hence the whining about the “Teflon” President.

Go to YouTube and search for “I Wear No Pants” by the Poxy Boggards. Not the Dockers commercial which used the same song; you want the original.

You won’t be sorry.

(Also check out “Drink ‘Til I Die.”)

Heh. Not sorry.

Though pants usually means undies to a Brit. I’m kinda grateful they didn’t handle the video that way.
