Obama names 8 citizens to highlight his successes

President Barack Obama is featuring eight Americans as “citizen co-chairs” of his inauguration, a new role created to highlight his first-term accomplishments with examples of lives that have either been improved by his actions or inspired his presidency.

The honorees announced Thursday include a woman with a brain tumor who no longer is denied health care for a pre-existing condition; an autoworker who got her job back after the General Motors bailout; and a gay pilot-in-training kicked out of the Air Force before the president repealed the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.


So Obama picks 8 people to honor himself. Saddest case is the guy who lost all four limbs from a land mine explosion in Afghanistan and was “inspired” when Obama personally pinned a purple heart on him. Those of you with any memory cells left will recall that Obama opposed the lawsuit to strike down DADT and finally agreed to repeal it when the lawsuit was successful.

It’s gonna be a long four years.

Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. – Ecclesiastes 1:2

    Are you fucking kidding me? Jesus Christ, now I have TWO embarrassing presidents. Where can I get me a third citizenship?

        Obama and Hollande. I was cringing listening to him (Hollande) talk about the hostage situation in Algeria yesterday. But hey, the French are really good at escaping! That would be the French hostages we either didn’t know were in there, or weren’t saying were in there. Plus I am STILL waiting for the socialists to reintroduce the 5-day school week, before I go mad. MAD, I say.

        If there have been further developments re Algeria, I don’t know about them. Yesterday I had a grueling all-day French test, my brain is mush, and I haven’t looked at the news or much of anything else other than the bottom of my “special” coffee cup and the inside of my eyelids.

  4. angienc (D) says:

    They are counting Obama giving a guy a Purple Heart as an “accomplishment” of his first term?

    Actually on second thought, that probably *is* the highlight.

    Oh, PS — the lady with brain tumor was NEVER denied HEALTH CARE — she just couldn’t get health INSURANCE to cover the bulk of the cost.

      Now there’s an OWS event I would look forward too. Hypocrites, they should be more disappointed in Obama than the rest of us, those mega-corporate bucks are what’s running the Coronation. Gee, couldn’t that money be better spent on …. oh nevermind, Twinkles Down owies.

    OT — Funniest thing I’ve read all day:

    The Wisconsin man charged with having curbside sex with an abandoned couch is negotiating a plea bargain with prosecutors and is expected to cop next month to a misdemeanor charge, records show.

    Gerard Streator is due in Waukesha County Circuit Court on February 25 for a “plea/sentencing hearing,” according to a court docket. Streator, who turns 47 tomorrow, was arrested last September for lewd and lascivious behavior.

    As detailed in a criminal complaint, Streator’s 11 PM furniture tryst was interrupted by an off-duty police officer out for a jog. The cop, Ryan Edwards, reported spotting “a subject leaning over the couch facing down and it looked like he was having sexual relations with someone on the couch.”

    As he approached the yellow couch, Edwards yelled, “What are you doing?” The suspect–later identified as Streator–responded by dismounting and running away. As Streator fled, Edwards “could see that the defendant’s penis was erect.” Edwards added that Streator “had been thrusting his pelvic area against the cushions and trying to sexually gratify himself by rubbing his penis between the two cushions.”

    I guess they are not spewing enough backtrack bulls–t now, they need to be carefully taught

    • smile says:

      What further proof do we need that the media is indeed a “state-run propaganda” machine. They do a pretty good job as a propagandists, but what with the complexity of obamacare, they need a bit of training and brush up of skills.

    • Erica says:

      Too bad nobody trained the congress on how to read and understand it before they voted.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Sadly the obots believe this shit. Pathetic.

      • angienc (D) says:

        The Obots believe the GOP — the party that was formed by abolishonists — wants to re-institute slavery in this country. They *actually* fucking *believe* that — Whoopi Goldberg *actually* says that on The View and NO ONE tells her to STFU.

        • What’s worse is that they deny the Democrats have resurrected slavery, but they have. Welfare is slavery. It keeps people living a subsistence existence in circumstances every bit as cruel as the worst plantation (ghettos), and gives them no options for getting out of their misery. They only difference is that a frightening number of AAs, Latinos, and poor whites sit on their asses instead of working fields, but their lives are just as miserable, and their options just as limited. There is no escape for the vast majority. And the government keeps people in chains for pittance, thereby affording massive opportunity for upper middle class and wealthy whites.

          If someone else is paying for your food, shelter & medical care, you’re a house pet.

    • He really is dangerous. Now that the company knows that the “best software development” in the company happened at a fraction of the cost in China, you can bet they will outsource a lot of those jobs. Competence and cost-savings (to the tune of several hundred thousand dollars per developer)? No-brainer.

    I love this article ….

    Now I know I can’t be a racist, Obama really is an insufferable President.

  13. HELENK says:

    I need to rant a little bit.

    first of all I DO NOT mean poor pitiful me. I have had a pretty good life.

    When I hear the people who want to be taken care of from cradle to grave. the Julia types I do not understand them at all.

    When I was in foster homes, I was a second class citizen. That is one of the worse feelings of all. Do these fools really understand what it is like to be less then? No freedom at all. I still have a problem when I hear kids talk to adults today. Believe me that did not happen in foster homes. I was one of the lucky ones. I graduated from high school at 17. If my birthday had been before graduation, I could not have graduate. You are on your own at 18. You either make it or you don’t.
    Why would someone want to give up freedom to be owned? That I will never understand.

    end of rant

    • Jadzia says:

      HelenK, I hear you loud and clear. My own mother grew up in a foster home. She was one of the lucky ones, too: she stayed with them for 12 years and they treated her as a cherished daughter. She grieved harder when “Mama” died than she did for any of her biological relatives, none of whom I have ever met and none of whom do I even know are alive or dead. We really need to do more for foster kids when they age out of the system.

      • Jadzia says:

        That doesn’t make sense up there: I DID know one of her bio relatives, her paternal grandmother, who died about the same time as “Mama.” I’ve never met my mom’s parents and don’t know anything about them other than the events that led to her living with the foster family.

    Children need to grow up sometime and if someone else is paying for your food, shelter & medical care, And you are over 21 you are still a baby. :)
