Holy Crap guys! The new President, when he came into office, rearranged some furniture!

So Romney goes to Britain and makes an ass out of himself and his party. So the party attempts to change the subject by getting their people to drudge up the Churchill bust story from January of 2009. This has to be the worst GOP campaign staff in the history of GOP campaign staffs.

Okay, while I respect the artist's other work, that bust of Churchill is ugly as fark.

This. It looks like something slapped together with gobs of JB-Weld.

I find this two-bust confusion hilarious. "He returned it!" "He didn't!" And they're both right. LOL!

There something wrong with the American President picking another American President's bust to put in its place?

Not to undercut Churchill's importance or anything, but this right wing idol worship of a foreign Prime Minister seems a little...weirdly unAmerican.

Maybe Romney should apologize for the American Revolution.

Indeed. If the Brits loaned that to me there's no way in hell I'd display that in the Oval Office. I'd take it as an insult.

Does anyone have a comprehensive list of the utterly moronic shiat people whined about concerning Obama? With Bush it was easy. With Obama people are resorting to paper clips and this kind of shiat.

I wonder if the Oval Office has a tchotchke closet full of crap you only put out when the countries that gave it to us come to visit.

So, as I understand it, the GOP not only wants to replace the black guy who worked his ass off to get where he is with a white guy who doesn't even want to talk about what he's done to earn the presidency, they want to get rid of the bust of the American president who freed the slaves and replace him with some foreigner.

Then why can't they at least be nice to Obama's white half?

Pretty soon, they'll just replace it all with a Carl's Jr and a Starbucks.

Two weeks? They have been doing that at least since the Palin nomination for VP.

sigdiamond2000: Q: Why do members of the right-wing media keep saying this bust was given to Bush "after 9/11 in a show of solidarity" when it was in fact given to him on July 16, 2001?

A: Because 9/11, that's why.

If there's a bust of Reagan in the White House -- and given the ludicrous knob-slobbing his corpse endures I'd be shocked if there isn't -- Obama should replace that bust with the Churchill one.

The Real 'Mercan tears would fix the drought before sundown, even if the wailing would make the cows give sour milk.

That's not a bust. That's Churchill's actual head.

Assuming Romney wins, when Obama moves out, he needs put a bust of Regan there. Then Romney would have to choose between a bust of Regan and Churchill. He is bound to piss of somebody.

When I am President we will proudly display the bust of Margaret Thatcher in the Oval Office. That is to say, dem titties.

I'm annoyed the uppity boy thought to re-arrange the furniture put in place by his betters. He may have had permission, but that doesn't give him the right.

Put that thing in the basement. It's hideous.
 
2012-07-30 03:49:12 PM
The Churchill Bust is a replique. Therefore Obama isn't really President. Or something.

If I were Obama I'd one up the SOBs and get a full length reclining nude of Margaret Tatcher wearing nothing but a smile and a well-placed granny purse the size of an HD TV.

rockland steel

Um, turns out obummers grandfather serving with patton, was just another lie in the mystery presidents made for TV bio. And we all know that oshamba did return the bust from the oval office to the brits. Man, can't you koolaid guzzlers just deal with the subject? All the mittman said was he was going to return the bust to the oval office. There was no lie, and all some folks here can do is lie to back up the soon to be x mystery president. Is giving two years of tax returns when running for president against the law? No, spin that one.


I expected it to end with "Da cool coach, Urban out!"

iPod given to the Queen with his speeches on it.

Totally not caucasian.
