Best comment from the article (possibly best comment ever):

"The fact that Obama hasn't produced the official document saying "I've officially ordered everything to be Hitlered, Forever" pretty much is either an admission that the document exists and he's hiding it, or he isn't interested in proving that it doesn't exist.

Therefore we must conclude that Obama has Hitlered everything, forever." -- InmanRoshi

Jackson Herring: seriously what the fark is going on today? an honest to goodness jennifer farking rubin greenlight?


Admins was cut off by a car with an Obama bumper sticker today and they are very bitter.

Ok, they didnt actually see the bumper sticker on the car. And to be honest, there was nothing indicating that it was an Obama supporter in that car, but their gut tells them it was. And actually, the admins was probably not cut off by this car but that car did change lanes without signalling. And upon retrospect, they did signal and were actually about 20 car lengths behind the admins, but tve fact remains that the admins was most likely cut off in front by an Obama supporter.

And upon further thought, the admins was really at home at the time when this happened.

It's okay, you didn't know. It's like taking that tranny hooker back to your hotel room. Sure, nothing will fully take away the shame, but at least in your heart you know you didn't go into it knowingly.

Why won't Obama address the serious allegations that something of some sort might have been done by somebody?

All the republicans want to do is have an investigation to get to the bottom of it. Why won't Obama cooperate with the Republican investigation, first by firing his entire staff, and them by resigning?

rjkline: Without a doubt the most corrupt administration in our nations history. But even before the corruption came to light he was the worst president ever. It's really sad, but the results are in......the great experiment is over and America lost.


Yeah, I remember when Obama started a major ground war based on lies, and gave no-bid contracts for the 'rebuilding' to the Vice President's old company. And that time he negotiated with terrorists with hostages before the '08 election, promising them weapons if they waited 'til after the election to release the hostages. And the time Joe Biden shot a man in the face.

And up next: why can't the other team score on our constantly moving goal posts??

It's actually quite a brilliant strategy by the Repubs: generate so many fake scandals at such a furious rate that it would be LITERALLY impossible to saliently address them all.

Used to see it ALL THE TIME in high school debate. It was an especially underhanded move that worked wonders at the amateur level: speak as quickly as possible, making as many points as possible, then next round call out your opponent for not answering every single one. That's the level these people are operating at: amateur high school debate.

DrPainMD: The last president who tried to control his administration was Kennedy, and look where it got him. The only way to control the federal government would be for the president to invoke the War Powers Act and start bombing the shiat out of DC. Then, put the survivors on the "kill on sight" list and send the SEALs after them.


You know how I know you're getting audited by a drone?

Atillathepun: BojanglesPaladin: gimmegimme: I swear; it's like Republicans are like that guy in Memento

I have not suggested that Obama is somehow unique in this.  He's not. But he's supposed to be BETTER. And he's not.

I know you know that just becasue other people ALSO sucked at this, doesn't change whether or not his team sucks.

Again, even if he is completely blameless in each of these scandals, the rookie mistakes that his messaging team keep making are doing damage. These are self-inflicted wounds, easily avoided. He DOES need to replace the people in his administration that keep putting out disprovable explinations.

So bad at messaging that his approval numbers are plummeting upwards.


He has a polling deficit in the negative direction. It's bad news... for Fartbama.

I guess that means a lot, especially coming from someone who has been so fair-minded about Obama for a long time.

Pretty much that.  Also:  Where were the Washington Press Corps when Bush was making the argument to go to Iraq?

Oh yeah I forgot:  Fighting each other to the death to be the first in line to brownnose.

Maybe, in an odd way, we should thank her for what she did to Romney's presidential campaign.

Romney Tortures Jennifer Rubin

On the one hand, Rubin's deepest roots lie in ultra-hawkish pro-Israel neoconservatism. On the other hand, Rubin has appointed herself unofficial spokesperson for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, using her blog to record a daily procession of Romney's wise choices and brilliant triumphs, along with the pathetic failures of all who challenge him.
