ZOMG!

/they've been pushing this for a while, I wonder when they'll reveal the "scandal"?

I love the shiatf*ck Daily. It's such an awesome political blog.

Jebus Cripes, I finally RTFA. They're worried about Obama staying in DC because of an interview with Baba Wawa (linked in TFA):

In an interview this week with Barbara Walters of ABC News, Obama and the first lady, Michelle, said they may live in Washington beyond their time in the White House to allow their younger daughter, Sasha, to graduate from Sidwell Friends School.

[snip]

"We gotta make sure that she's doing well .?.?. until she goes off to college," Obama told Walters, according to an advance transcript of the interview, which aired Friday night. "Sasha will have a big say in where we are."


Good god, are these people paranoid...

Weaver95: God Is My Co-Pirate: And if he said he was moving to Hawaii, they'd be accusing him of building an underwater volcano lair.

I would totally go work for Obama if he builds a tropical island volcano lair.


He could team up with Hank Scorpio..

I don't know why, but she looks like the last person to be out of order in her court room is currently on a rack in her basement.

Holy snappin' arsenals, are you spot-on with this one.  I read the first 20 or so, and man....that was some epic derp there.

/note how every comment has a buncha UP votes and zero DOWN votes.


I'm guessing comments get deleted and the commenter in question gets banninated if they get even one DOWN vote.

Based on what my ex told me about the judge and her trial specifically, I agree.

// opposing counsel apparently tried to strongarm the judge into finding things their way in one of the early hearings
// BAD MOVE - the Judge spent lots of time specifically calling out the behavior in her decision

phamwaa: FlashHarry: garandman1a: It sounds like all the nightmares the liberals said would happen in 2008 & Bush not giving up the presidency.

Eh, why not:

Remember, Clinton was also going to declare a State of Emergency due to Y2K and keep himself in a White House longer.

I don't remember if anyone though Bush 41 was going to do something crazy to keep the White House.

This one's my favorite:


How else can he destory the USA and usher in SHIRA law as the new Muslum nation. That's the end game people.
Step one: get elected and get the economy to start to recover.
Step two: improve international relations
Step three: try to improve the healthcare system.
Step four: SHIRA LAW
Can you not see the diobolical plan !


It's funny on so many levels, not the least of which apparently even Obama haters agree he's improved the economy and international relations.


That was mine, I go there to have fun sometimes.

The full on derp usually starts when there's a second term involved.

FTFA: "Now Obama's home is Hawaii or Chicago," Limbaugh continued.

I'm really glad to see Rush toning down the rhetoric. I fully expected him to call on Obama to return to Kenya after his second term.

hubiestubert: It's not like folks who leave elected office ever get jobs near the capitol. I mean, that's illegal isn't it?


Most presidents get the heck outta Dodge when their terms end.  But then, when was the last time a president had kids still in school at the end of his term?

SurfaceTension: I'll admit to having rather idiotic thoughts like that.


Yeah I was really surprised that the multinational conglomerates (Big Oil, Big Pharma, etc), the military and espionage industrial complex, and mega-wealthy aristocracy that directly benefited from Bush-era policy would give up power so easily. Then after Obama was elected it was like ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....

That Rush Limbaugh, he made sure to wait a whole month and a week or so to let those short memories do their work and then start spinning this story.

CygnusDarius: JerseyTim: How exactly does WND plan on spinning Hillary Clinton as the most powerful dictator-president ever while simultaneously Barack Obama is the shadow president?

That was a cool game.

[upload.wikimedia.org image 280x280]


Oh God did I lose lots of hours thanks to that game.

I also learned a lot about geography and that a president can have a huge approval rating if he just strengthens economic ties with all the other countries in our... whatever they called the global alliances in that game.
Oh, and don't bother stopping Iraq from invading Kuwait.

Once the kids are off to college, Barack and Michelle will go back to Chicago (they own a house there, but not one in Hawaii) and I would bet money that Barack will go back to teaching at U Chicago.  Probably a very special course in the law school, something you really have to fight to get into.  He'll do that for a while the new president gets settled in and weigh his options.

I could see him going back to the Senate; I could see him taking an appointment to the Supreme Court or to the Cabinet.  He'll write a couple books and he has to decide where to build his library (which traditionally also become a former president's office); I suspect it will also be in Chicago.

I always wonder who does graphic work on companies like this. Surely they can't operate Adobe software.

It should be obvious what Obama is going to do when his term is over... he is going to partner with Donald Trump and travel the country solving crimes. NBC will buy the rights to make their adventures into a reality show. The running gag will be each episode ending with Trump screwing something up to which Obama will say "Donald, you're fired!"... freeze frame of Obama laughing and Trump looking frustrated while canned laughter brings in the credits rolling in over the screen.

/The holiday special of their trip to Kenya to solve the mystery of a fire at a government documents warehouse will be a ratings win for NBC

Well, he IS stuck with that measly six-figure salary when all his lobbyist friends are making millions.

Yes because, like the Republican party, all of their problems can be corrected with a teeny bit of rebranding.

Doesn't Trump despise Obama's f**king Kenyan guts?

ikanreed: Americans don't know what "Shadow Government", subbers,.  It sounds bad-ass, but people from sane countries know it's actually pretty boring and tedious.


Thanks. I wondered if anyone would get that. For those who are unaware, in a Westminister parliament, the Loyal Opposition normally forms a shadow government. It's simply a way of delegating responsibility for opposition to the Cabinet.
