Let's face it, this is what we are afraid of. A president who tells his supporters to get up in their faces. Who doesn't use his power to bring us together, but uses his influence to tear us apart.


Heh, no kidding, those Obamabots can be a classy bunch, I'm sure they will get many more votes over this.

Hey NW, you really should get off the Drudge Report, there are a lot of good conservative columnists you could read instead of the crap(no pun intended) you post here every day.

Is it possible for you, Steven, to directly address a post's specific topic? You link to this, to that, make platitudes but fail to correct yourself when I called you out on posting a lie as truth. Ok, you didn't research it before posting, or whatever. But live the truth in fact, not with un-facts.

Dan, In most cases there was no remuneration. He contributed his time for nothing in those cases. However in a few (olympics), he was given a bonus for spectacular performance. If you haven't noticed, most olympics lose money.

There was no bonus for being governor. I'd be willing to bet he'd work as president for free. In addition his wife will not spend hundreds of millions on travel or staff.

Q: Does First Lady Michelle Obama have an “unprecedented” number of staffers?

A: Michelle Obama currently has a staff of 24. That may indeed be the largest of any first lady.Hillary Clinton, had 19 staffers, and Laura Bush 18.

33% more staff at double the payroll as Laura Bush. I'll guess Ann Romney would have closer to 12-15. Wanna Bet?

Big Bird Wants Out of Campaign Ad

Big Bird, it seems, isn’t thrilled about his cameo in the presidential race.
The folks at Sesame Street are asking the Obama campaign to pull down a TV ad released Tuesday that mocks Mitt Romney for vowing to yank the subsidy to PBS.
At the presidential debate in Denver last week, Mr. Romney said he would end the subsidy in view of the nation’s fiscal troubles.

“I love Big Bird,” the Republican challenger said “… But I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.”
Up went an ad by team Obama called “Big Bird’’ that suggests Mr. Romney is targeting children’s programming rather than legitimate threats to people’s economic interests.
The ad shows images of Bernie Madoff and others implicated in various financial and corporate scandals. A narrator then intones: “And the evil genius who towered over them?”
A silhouette of Big Bird flashes on screen.
“Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about, it’s Sesame Street,” the narrator said.
The ad is airing on national cable and broadcast TV, in time slots devoted to comedy shows, the Obama campaign said.
Sesame Street isn’t amused. Sesame Workshop, a nonprofit educational organization that produces and owns the show, issued a statement Tuesday saying “we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”

An Obama campaign spokesman, Ben LaBolt, said the campaign is “reviewing their concerns.”
A blog post on the Sesame Workshop website said that “Sesame Street would not exist were it not for PBS and its local stations, which is the distribution system for Big Bird and friends to reach all children across the United States, particularly the low income children who need us most.”
In response to the ad, the Romney campaign released a statement saying, “The choice in this election is becoming more clear each day. Four years ago, President Obama said that if you don’t have a record to run on, ‘you make a big election about small things.’ With 23 million people struggling for work, incomes falling and gas prices soaring, Americans deserve more from their president.”

More horse manure from Mr. Bard. (Is anybody surprised?)

Well, that just about proves it. Steven may be able to ride a wave at Leo (until his gear decides to hide in the bushes) but he will always go for the wave that is chopped-up and blame in on the sailor who was riding it before Steven came over the back, or simply drop in on the surfer whom he declares was never there in the first place.

Fact or fiction? What's the difference?

Obama said during his last campaign that if a politician has no record to run on, he campaigns on small stuff.

What's Obama running on? Rubbers for Fluke, making OJ Simpson jokes about Big Bird in speeches, letting the SEALS kill OBL, calling Romney a liar despite proof to the contrary, and endless other trivia one can Google by the page.
