That's tame. I'm thinking photoshop and feathered headdresses, and for the more esoteric, photoshop and Custer's Revenge references. But maybe I'm just a terrible person.

"We have reservations"

"Why does she insist on destroying the TP?"
"She says she's going to ______.  I have one question: How?"


"Her skin will be red from the drubbing she'll get at the polls."

"She's having a pow-wow with her staff."

"There's no room in the tipi for job creators."

"She's handing the peace pipe to our enemies."

dookdookdook: Obama's so good when he's in "Alpha male" mode.  He can smack down anyone and never seems to cross the line into petty dickishness.

I'm not sure if it's the "uppity negro" thing or something else that keeps him from just staying in that mode all the time, but when he's Wussbama(tm), we wind up with crap like the first debate from last year.


When he's Trollbama, I have hope for this country.

When he's EpicFailBama, I weep.

NeoCortex42: Well, he's not wrong.

When the Republicans win, it's a mandate by the people to follow through on their policies.
When the Republicans lose, it's only because the will of the people was ignored and it's up to them to push through their policies.

Once the GOP embraces reality, maybe they'll have more success.


Obama has way more mandate than Bush had, and uses only a fraction of it. He is a thousand times more reserved than the tea party, yet they cry about how he disrespects them.

But it isn't racism, and can he not just sit down at the table with boehner for a conversation. That is really all these gentle conservatives want.

I'm tempted to say "not likely" on a Warren bid, because she's a tiny bit green, but in retrospect, I probably had pretty similar misgivings about Obama in '04 when some eternal optimists proposed him running four years later against the undefeatable GOP, right?

Listen and understand. The GOP is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

Why is he becoming a dick to the Republicans?

Because he spent 5+ years being diplomatic, polite, professional and concillatory.  Which lead to them insulting him, mocking him, belittling him, and trying to extort him.

He proposed the Republican Healthcare Reform package. . .and they turned against their own longtime position just to spite him.   He asked for permission to take the US military to Syria.  More specifically, he asked the same group of people who gave Bush Jr. a blank check for Iraq on the suspicion of WMD's for permission for limited intervention in a country with confirmed and admitted WMD's and they balked.  He ordered a hit on Osama Bin Laden when Bush Jr. let him get away. . .and they call him weak on terrorism.

He has spent half a decade now trying to be a great statesman who would unite people and take the moral high ground.

He's learned that the ONLY thing they respect is force.  So, he's using political force to take a stand.  No more Mr. Nice President (at least from their POV).

If the Republicans had been willing to negotiate, starting years ago, they could have got a LOT of concessions and ground, instead they devoted themselves to being The Party of NO, the people who considered making him a one-term President (and failing miserably at that) more important than actually legislating things for the good of the country.

Didn't Hillary start that in the primaries with the birth certificate thing? I don't really remember.

I think so.  I wonder if she regrets opening that can of worms.

Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign was so slimy and nasty that it drained any bit of enthusiasm I might have had about her and made me support Obama that much more.  I still would have voted for her over McCain and Palin, but I would not have felt good about it at all.

I hope she doesn't pul the same shiat in 2016, but I am not holding my breath.


On the other hand, President Hillary would have gotten Congressional investigations rolling on repub transgressions during the Bush administration. Bush would be in jail right now and Cheney's head would be on a pike outside the Pentagon. When Obama was elected the entire GOP held its breath for a year waiting for the indictments to come down. When they didn't, they concluded that Obama was a wimp who could be pushed around at will, and to a certain extent they were right. I'm strongly opposed to Presidential nepotism and would have been very unhappy with Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton in the history books, but a healthy helping of vicious-biatch-in-charge circa 2009 would have solved a lot of problems over the past five years and avoided a slew of others.

Silly, that only applies when it's Republicans losing elections.  Remember:

When Republicans win, it's because they have a clear mandate from the people and the Party has absolute power.

When Republicans lose: It's because Liberals have rigged the election, by the Black Panthers or Muslim Brotherhood or ACORN intimidating voters, or massive voter fraud of people voting when they shouldn't be able to, or George Soros had somebody hack the Diebold voting machines.

To their own logic, they can never legitimately lose an election.  If they lose, it's because of liberal trickery.  Thus, when they win they get to dictate the agenda.  When they lose, they get to dictate the agenda.  They want a one-party state where they are the only political party.

You know what?  I'm glad Obama finally found his pimp hand.  He spent 4 1/2 years bending over backwards to try to build consensus, and what he ended up with is accusations of being a tyrant and the Antichrist.  Looks like he finally got the message, and is going to start playing hardball from now on.

There's nothing to prevent it. John Quincy Adams served in the House for 17 years after his presidential term (and was a far more effective representative than he was a president).

In my dream world, we'd see Speaker of the House Obama passing legislation in partnership with Senate Majority Leader Biden (with members being pulled into line by House Majority Whip Bill Clinton) and signed into law by President Hillary Clinton. And I'd want that simply because the GOP butthurt would be absolutely delicious.

Warren's a no-go, no matter how much I love her. Biden doesn't ooze presidential gravitas, no matter how much I love him as Vice. Hillary's the default, establishment candidate, depending on if she runs. By the time 2016 rolls around, Booker will have molded himself as Obama 2.0 and could make a "hope and change" run at it. He's already running the exact same plays that Obama did to get elected.

"Well, we shouldn't come up with any bills that actually makes America better, because then Obama will look good!"

But you won't do this, because you're all a bunch of worthless blubbering vaginas.
