President Obama Gets Emotional During Speech

Remember how John Boner was mercilessly mocked for crying? Equality demands that Obama be treated the same. Anything less is racism.

This is an open thread.

    Does Boo-Hoo Barry feel the same way about aborted babies?

    I needed to feel grounded today, and this did it.

      Here’s one for your #OutOfContextTweet file 😉

      • Somebody says:

        She must wear falsies because otherwise that would hurt your boob.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Now that I think of it (and yes, you’re right), it’s a really bad photo op, a real workout with weights would have never let that barbell anywhere near her chest. Sloppy. So her “trainer” owes her a refund. 😉 At her age, she be going for firm and tone and not building muscle. As she ages, it will only turn into yuuge flappy bingo wings 😀

    • DeniseVB says:

      Not surprising, there’s leaks to this happening in other countries where the religion of peace and love migrants are settling.

      • Somebody says:

        I don’t want that crap over here, if that makes me a racist so be it. I also am very fond of my 2nd amendment rights to defend myself Mr. Obama, as are many other Americans. However a group of 100? It would take many CC holders to take on a gang like that.

        If any of the “refugees” coming here try to pull something like that, let’s hope their first attempt is in Texas!!

    • Venus says:

      Yep, read about it today. Also read the response from the government is for women to “adjust their conduct” to prevent these assaults from happening.

      Pretty soon, we will all be required to wear burkas.
      On a positive note, at least those stupid “slut walks” will end.

      • Jadzia says:

        I know, right? There is something to be said for telling the men–you know, the ones who are committing the crimes–NOT TO DO THAT ANYMORE. Obviously we need to protect ourselves, too, but I don’t get why the costs of this invasion are expected to be shouldered by Germany’s young women.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          It’s a cultural thing. Apparently most of these Muslim refugees are men and they didn’t bring along enough of their own women to rape.

          DON’T BE JUDGMENTAL!!!

          If you hurt their feelings they might turn radical and start killing people.

          • Jadzia says:

            I’m not sure if I ever talked about my immigration experience here. The Sarkozy government instituted some new requirements about that time related to language (i.e., immigrants are required to speak it) and classes in the French system of government and French cultural values. It was beyond depressing sitting in that room while the government employee informed us that in France, women are allowed to vote and they don’t have to vote for who their husbands tell them to vote for and oh yeah, you can only have one wife and she can’t be underage.

            I don’t think I was the target audience.

  4. votermom says:

    It’s the hormones for his transition that’s making him weepy.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    Finally, something I agree with Speaker Ryan and Senate Leader guy McConnell

    • DeniseVB says:

      Whoa. Not a good photo of Anna, but she does play an under 40 grandma on “Mom”. (do the math 😉 ) Love that she said she won the husband lottery marrying Chris Pratt, when they were both little known actors. Hope it lasts !

    • leslie says:

      That was SO nice. I could never, ever think of this and bronco with any connection at all. This was wonderful. The other is not.

  6. Somebody says:

    If gun violence tears Obama up so much then why was he was aloof and detached about the Paris and San Bernandino attacks? Because those mass shootings were perpetrated by muslims?? How about all his time in the legislature in Illinois?? The violence on the south side of Chicago never bothered him??? Oh wait I get it, he only gets emotional when deranged white people shoot others??

    I like Jan Morgan.

    Just so you all know, I’m Hillys age and I have a Garden Club meeting tonight, in exactly an hour and 18 minutes away, which means I have to get dressed and actually leave my house. Good grief sister Hillary, how do you become a stronger version of Me ? And I have no health issues or a desire to run for President of my local neighborhood Garden Club much less the country?

    • cynic says:

      Hey, I belonged (and was one of the 1st members) to a Garden Club for 25 yrs. Had to quit when the place they held the mtgs. was making me sick. The bright lights and overheating was giving me headaches.

      • 1539days says:

        Were you meeting in a hothouse?

        • cynic says:

          You would think! Actually, it is a highrise for the elderly. It’s next door to the fire station, and when someone would burn their food, the alarms would go off, and we would time how long it took for the firemen to come.

  10. votermom says:

    I was just thinking about how the Muslim invasion in Germany reminds me of Tom Kratman’ s Caliphate novel

    Guess what – it’s free on kindle

    (Do not use the amazon portal for this, I will get dinged for free books)

    • lyn says:

      You should do a list of all the things we buy. 😉

      • votermom says:

        Do you want me to? I wasn’t sure.
        Someone bought tax software – I’m impressed. Very organized!

        • lyn says:

          It was on sale. Spent $10 more for it last year.

        • lyn says:

          Well, maybe not all.

        • It wasn’t me, fuck taxes.

          • Jadzia says:

            I am terrified of taxes this year. I keep hearing rumors that the child tax credit was taken away from non-resident taxpayers. Tax filing (not the amount, just the procedure) is so easy here: you get a bill that has your income and deduction information already filled in, and the amount that you either have to send in or are getting back. (We usually get a little bit of money back–our taxes are much lower here than they were in the US, although that will certainly change once our little deductions of joy grow up and leave the nest.) You are allowed to challenge it, of course. But for us, regular middle-class people, it’s been very very easy.

          • Jadzia says:

            Wow, that was not clear at all. What I meant is that I am terrified of filing AMERICAN taxes this year and that the French tax filing is always easy and pretty stress-free. Whereas I am basically full of ulcers filing the American ones because the new laws have a $10,000 penalty or 50% of your bank account (whichever is higher) for a NEGLIGENT mistake in the forms that we have to use to report our local checking and savings accounts to the (American) Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. I go over the forms and go over them, and it’s still really scary.

        • DeniseVB says:

          That would be fun to see an overview of activity. I’m doing post holiday shopping now for moi (walking boots) and special Greg (sweats). A winter wreath for the front door ? A novel on Vietnam?

          • lyn says:

            I’ve been buying Catalan literature translated, of course. One book arrived from Sweden today.

    • lyn says:

      The organic ginger root tea is the best ginger tea that I’ve tasted.

      • cynic says:

        Sounds good. What brand? I bought over the holidays, Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane (decaf green tea with sweet mint and vanilla). I use to be able to buy it every Christmas at the grocery store, but for some reason, they quit carrying the holiday flavors.

        I also am addicted to Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Sunset tea (Black tea with cinnamons, orange and sweet cloves).

    There has been an interesting discussion of Ted’s citizenship on Twitter.

    When Ted was born in Canada, both of his parents were Naturalized Canadian Citizens. His American born mother had changed her citizenship from USA to Canadian, his Cuban born father who fought for Castro changed his citizenship from Cuban to Canadian.

    Cruz Citizenship Timeline….

    • 1539days says:

      Cruz birthers don’t seem to understand citizenship. His mother is a US citizen. She has always been a US citizen. She is still a US citizen even when she gets Canadian citizenship. “Natural born” does not require being born within the confines of the United States. For 60 years, being born “on American soil” didn’t mean shit for citizenship.

      • Dora says:

        His mother hasn’t been. She gave up her citizenship when she moved to Canada and became a Canadian citizen.

        • 1539days says:

          Gave up or actually renounced?

          • Jadzia says:

            Please don’t get me started on this issue. tl/dr version is that it is REALLY HARD to get rid of your US citizenship. Once upon a time, American women would automatically lose their US citizenship if they married a foreigner and lived in the foreign country. Now it costs $2,350 and takes 18 months while they investigate you to see if you owe an exit tax.

        • DandyTIger says:

          Nope, she didn’t. It’s not required for Canadian citizenship. There is no record of her actually renouncing (and legally cancelling) US citizenship.

          • Jadzia says:

            Interestingly, back when Ted’s mom would have been dealing with the Canadian immigration people, my understanding (from talking to other American emigrants) is that at least some people WERE being told that by the US embassy they were giving up their US citizenship and that it was automatic when they got the Canadian citizenship–only to learn decades later that they were supposed to have been filing taxes all those years because you’re not free of the IRS unless you have a certificate of loss of nationality (which I’m not sure even existed back then, but it does now, and if you don’t have it, your bank will report you to the IRS and the IRS will then come after you if it so desires).

    • DandyTIger says:

      Non issue. Ted is a “natural born” US Citizen. Period.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Agree. Cruz did denounce his dual citizenship to lessen the confusion with the birthers.

        • Jadzia says:

          I actually don’t think it’s a bad thing to expect somebody who wants to be president to have allegiance to the United States only. He was only an accidental Canadian, but still.

  12. Dora says:

    Another night; another rally. 🙂

  13. Did the Norks just join in more world chaos and muscle flexing under this horrible president?

  14. DeniseVB says:

    So, back from the neighborhood Garden Club meeting. Thought it would be a much needed respite from politics, since the topic was Japanese Maple trees. Turns out our Prezzy is a precinct captain for the Super Tuesday primary on March 1st and she was pulling her hair out and decided she won’t make voters requesting the GOP ballot to sign that stupid loyalty pledge, so we talked mostly about that. I can’t quit politics, can I 😉 So here’s a photo of a Japanese Maple tree:

    • Dora says:

      That tree is beautiful. Just looking at it makes me long for the end of this very cold winter. And it just started. 🙂

    • Myiq2xu says:

      That article is slanted as hell. It’s a standard paternity claim seeking shared custody. Support orders are mandatory now.

      • Somebody says:

        Support orders are not mandatory in Florida. My son doesn’t get a dime, although the courts did ask the egg donor to submit a financial statement which she hasn’t yet. She tried to sign away the kids, no visitation, nothing, but the courts refused to sever her rights despite the fact that is what she wanted. They allow once a month supervised visitation which she hasn’t availed herself of, shocking.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          I’ll betcha if you look at his paperwork the court set child support at zero. That can be modified at any time up until the child turns 18. A zero order is still an order.

    He bought those tears from China.

  17. swanspirit says:

    When did the United States Of America become Barack Obama Land? I remember presidents all the way back to Eisenhower; when I was still a kid, and i do not ever remember the importance and the feelings of the president being subordinate to the interests of the country, and the people.
    Wow, we bad Americans made Obama cry, so he had to circumvent the constitution once again, and write his own laws.
    I think he is a really poor actor, and used fake tears. He isn’t direct, he is a manipulative bastage, and everything he does is self aggrandizing.

    • lyn says:

      Exactly. Obama is a wuss.

    • wailuagirl says:

      agree alot……

    • swanspirit says:

      I said that backwards . I hate when Liz Dexic strikes. I meant that I do not remember the interests of the country and the people being less important than the feelings of the wussident. But that is how it is in Obamaland.
      He isn’t crying over those 12 soldiers trapped in Afghanistan. I wonder if he will send help.

  18. wailuagirl says:

    Classic post and I haven’t even read the comments yet. CRY BABY indeed
