I love how the conservatives complain about Obama not being presidential enough in their view, while at the same time they're always bloviating about elitism, and how they want their leaders to be "regular folk" like their neighbors, and making guys like Joe The Plumber the public face of their party. Sarah Palin can "you betcha! [wink!]" at the camera in a farking vice-presidential debate and that's fine because she's so real and folksy and down-to-earth and god love her for it, but Obama takes his shirt off at the farking beach and all of a sudden he doesn't have the gravitas that the office requires.

Goddamn you people are stupid.

When you say "his souvenir shop" do you mean it's filled with items that Obama personally created or chose? Because according to the article, the shop will be selling inauguration items that tourists love to buy. I'm sure there were plenty of trashy Bush souvenirs that were sold to the mouthbreathing republitards a few years ago.

George W. Bush unironically wears a cowboy hat. Obama could show up in nothing but a banana hammock and be more dignified.

I live in the south and see those damn hats everywhere, usually on people who have never met a cow that wasn't medium rare. You just know that when people from other countries think "dumb American", they imagine us all wearing cowboy hats, like we're nine years old and riding on wooden horsies. That's like meeting an Irish person and fighting the urge to glance down and see if they have buckles on their shoes.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Mentalpatient87: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: (checks profile) Yep, another alt. No response required.

Oh, so you've made up some baseless reason to dismiss me entirely. Makes it easy, doesn't it?

Oh, by no means, certainly not. Your sentence that I was responding to was: "That would require more than a sentance and a half and a hotlinked image. Blood from a stone, and all that."

Point the First: you're ignorant and sloppy, as demonstrated by your several spelling issues in this thread. It's just annoying.

Much more important, Point the Second, is that you appear to START your debating technique with ad homenim (name calling). The only direction from there, son, is DOWN.

Point the Third is that your profile data is extremely minimal, suggesting that the account is simply an alt of some other account.

All three of these together suggest Point the Fourth, that you are somewhere around the age of 12-14, and don't have the slightest farking idea what you are talking about.

So, yes, you are easy to dismiss.

MrHelpful: It speaks for itself. The guy is good at campaigning...everything else, he's worthless.


We already get that you think so, you're just repeating your earlier unsupported claim. The things is, if he's incompetent and worthless as a president, if that can be claimed as a true statement, then there must be some metrics by which his competence and worth are measured. Meaning that, in such an analysis, we would point to certain real-world indicators of how the office of the president is performing. Without understanding that those metrics exist, what they include and what they tell us, there's no logical means by which to claim the success or failure of a president.

Since you've made such a claim, we all expect that you've examined the facts in order to arrive at your conclusion. And since you're in here announcing your conclusion, we're giving you the opportunity to support it.

Unless of course you're just in here parroting the opinions that you've heard other people say, and have chosen to adopt those opinions as your own because those people belong to a group that you identify with. But I'd like to give you the benefit of the doubt that you're not just in here talking about things that you don't know anything about. So again, please, do go on.

ChadM89: MrHelpful: Actually what I think makes Obama "least presidential" is his complete incompetence.

There's a marked difference between making a point and making a claim. Claims need to be backed up by argument, using things like reason, facts and examples before the point is made.

Your claim is Obama's incompetence. Go ahead and make your case, we're all dying to hear it.

Making fun of the tacky crap is one thing. Suggesting that the tacky crap makes the man 'less presidential'... you know, the exactly farking thing the headline says... is quite another.

When people grow up, they recognize the difference between making fun of tacky crap and criticizing someone for doing totally farking normal shiat like drinking a beer or being shirtless at the beach. They also recognize that making fun of people who do the latter is not 'getting bent out of shape' about 'their guy' being criticized, but rather mocking the people doing the criticizing for being so colossally farking stupid.

So, you know, go on and knock yourself out and criticize Obama all you want. There's plenty of things to criticize. But it's really REALLY stupid to go the route subby did and you should expect to be mocked for that stupidity if you choose that route.

Fredericks of Hollywood has been around since the late 1940s or so.

They are, however, relatively certain that if they continue to kiss the asses of filthy rich, old white men, that it will 1953, again in no time or, at the very least, they'll get a seat in the getaway car after the economy resembles post war Dresden. So far, the "nudge, wink, smirk" platform is sucking canal water, Johnny can't read and talented people are pushing brooms if they can find work at all. This is not, however, the fault of any president or cabinet, as a root cause. It's the fault of a nation who were trained to drop their knees and service any swinging dick with an 8 figure bank account. So far, the costume party hasn't done much for anybody who isn't already rich, but we just keep waving that tattered pom pom. *sigh*


It's actually a fairly inevitable transition that all societies make, once they make that fateful step from "government as the protector of all" to "government as the distributor of money and favors."

Seriously, what the hell did the socialist "progressives" expect? Throughout recorded history, money has ALWAYS talked. The Golden Rule was/is/shall be "He that has the gold makes the rules."

So the lefties work and work and work for 100+ years to create that above-mentioned government transition and then are astonished and flabbergasted that the society they wanted to turn into a Worker's Paradise has instead turned into a Plutocracy?

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: I agree. Interesting, though, that you don't comprehend the exact same sort of behavior on your side.


How do you know what I think of the other side? The subject of the thread was the conservative opinion of Obama's "presidentialness", and that's all I spoke to. I could have a similarly scathing argument about things that progressives do, but it's not relevant here so I didn't say anything about it. In your rush to point a finger at me, you've failed to pay attention and as a result, made a groundless claim.

But since your claim has been made, and we can see from your statement that you believe that the other side engages in the "exact same sort of behavior", why don't you go ahead and illuminate us all.
