He's fine, just send Biden to the funeral and call it a day.

Well yeah, people liked Ebert.

I thought it was pretty apparent that Obama likes movies and hates Britain after his gift of DVDs to the Prime   Minister that caused an international incident a couple of years back.

Hwy, it probably took a while for them to think of nice things to say about the old bint.

The comments.......they gave me heartburn.

Who cares what the English think. England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn't make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy.

Obama should prioritize an American citizen over a foreigner.Anyone who thinks otherwise hates America.

People always say how small England is, but you couldn't fit it all in this room, not by a long shot.

You would think the right wingers would realize by now they are being trolled hard by the Obama administration

If I recall we fought a goddamn war so that we didn't have to honor British heads of state.  If you want to bow to the damn crown move to Canada.

As a Canadian, I feel compelled to point out that the only way the monarch appears in my life is on my money.  It is really annoying having to bow every time I get some cash out; you Americans had the right of it.

"Obama is not making statements promptly enough!"

Whereas, if he did have a response right away...

"How can Obama make statements so promptly, doesn't he have time for affairs of state?!  Are these statements pre-prepated?!  OBITUARYGATE!!!"

HotWingConspiracy: Well yeah, people liked Ebert.


I've yet to meet a single British person who liked her. as near as I can tell, Republicans seem to be the only ones who ever have anything good to say about her.
 
2013-04-09 09:14:18 AM
I'm surprised Homobama wasn't the first to congratulate this woman "leader".

I don't think it's a coincidence that Britain turned into a Nanny State after they elected a Nanny.  You can whine all you want about me telling the truth, but it's pretty obvious what happened.

State + Nanny = Nanny State.

Case closed.
 
2013-04-09 09:15:06 AM
What happened is that Obama received the news of Ebert's death faster than the news of Thatcher's death.

"Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws." - Douglas Adams

No, she was George Bush with tits. A grand right wing political stunt entirely propped up by compliant media and needless war.
 
2013-04-09 09:18:52 AM
Don't worry, they're will be plenty of people lining up to polish that Limey turd of a woman...

To my knowledge, Ebert didn't support Apartheid in SA or Pinochet. He also wasn't a mean-spirited asshole who viewed the poor and leeches worthy of nothing more than contempt.

That alone makes him more worthy of praise than Thatcher.
 
2013-04-09 09:19:14 AM
Margaret Thatched destroyed trade unions more effectively than anyone since the early 1900's.  She did such a marvelous job of hollowing out the English middle class that when wages and benefits are cut today, no one says a peep.  She and Ronald Reagan can hold the death of the middle class as their primary accomplishment.

/so proud
 
2013-04-09 09:20:08 AM
Give it a week and they'll start to think Obama personally killed her.
 
2013-04-09 09:20:17 AM
Maybe a statement about a dead movie critic requires a bit less critical review than one about a former Prime Minister? I doubt the State Department cared about reviewing the language for Ebert.

This is actually a pretty plausible reason.

I'm definitely not voting for him after this.

[i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x790]


And the reason she had a life is that she could afford to hire a boatload of nannies to take care of her children.  That way she was free to spend 100% of her efforts destroying the country.

The tone of this thread so far suggests that the right wing trolls are late sleepers. Or are all on the west coast. Or are waiting for their daily talking points to arrive.

NICE!  I actually had to look up that quote---I knew I remembered it from somewhere but couldn't place it.

That and both Obama and Ebert are from Chicago. He may have had more people cluing him in to Ebert's passing - especially as Ebert died during the day EDT, whereas Thatcher died overnight.

// thanks, GOP - we're down to examining the circumstances of peoples' deaths to determine just how bugfark insane you have gotten

They're probably busy reading up on Margaret Thatcher, and they have to stop several times to masturbate when they get to the good parts.

Sometimes I think President Obama does these kinds of things deliberately.  It distracts the GOP troll machine from stopping important things.
 
2013-04-09 09:30:42 AM
Obama is an ass and simply knows when he's standing the shadow of greatness. He just hopes this passes quickly and no one compares her greatness to meh.

So is this one of those times where we care what "Old Europe" thinks about us?

I can never tell when were supposed to swear fealty to our betters in the motherlands or when they are Godless communists hell bent on Homocommiefascism.

A lot of Britain begs to differ.

it was reference to Ebert's review of North.

I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it.-Roger Ebert

Huh? I've seen very mixed reviews. Conservatives loved her, Liberals hated her.

Everyone agrees she was the Prime Minister, and now she's dead.

If the US had the same degree of cause to go into Iraq as the UK had in responding to the Faulkland's incident, we'd still be cheering GW Bush.  While the war was stupid, and demonstrated numerous problems that had crept into the UK military, the blame for that one rests entirely on Argentina, in particular the leaders of the military which used the nationalistic dog whistle to try to retain popularity.

And I'd have used the image of Ronald Reagan's political girlfriend.  Those two fauned over each other.  And the policies pursued by both of them have left lasting negative impacts to their respective countries.

And now I'm depressed because you've managed to remind me I was a right wing nutjob neocon at the time.  Thankfully I outgrew that stupidity in the 90s with Gingrich's Contract on America.  Time for coffee.
