Trump will be apoplectic over this and you know he watched. What are the odds he throws out the N word at tonight's rally?

It's streaming now.. I turned it on for 20 seconds and heard "Sleepy Joe" six times, and then he transitioned to court packing and I turned it off

I miss that man. I miss that man more than I miss dead family members. I hate, absolutely farking hate, that we went from him to the fascist orange yambag. Fark Trump, fark everyone that voted for Trump. I want Obama back, goddamn it.

I was just soaking in my hot tub and I saw a meteor heading in that direction.  Big sucker, too.  It flamed out just before it got to Philly.

Maybe next time.

Hopefully that counts..

So that's what a successful TWO term president looks like, it's been awhile since i've seen one.
 
2020-10-21 9:38:42 PM  
Obama laid the smackdown on Trump.  Gloriously so.

I feel sorry for him.  I voted for him twice, if I had a dollar for every time I heard someone call him a n***** I could retire.  The hatred was over the top, and over what?  He tried to give these losers some health insurance.   This farking country deserves whatever it gets.

Fark the 22nd Amendment.

I still think it would have been a cool kick in Trump's ass if Biden had selected Barack Obama as his Vice President. There's no rule against it AFAIK.

Still, he'll make a great Supreme Court Justice, too.

Best president in mine, and I was born in '69.

Although, to be fair, Carter was doomed from the start, so we only get to see how awesome he is after the fact. Given a real chance, he would have been great as well.

Eh, the creeping corporatism throws him out of that spot for me, but as far as his demeanor and how he handled being president, yes absolutely.
 
2020-10-21 9:40:36 PM  
was he talking to cars like Joe?  and he spoke ill of Trump?  shocker.
 
2020-10-21 9:40:46 PM  
If Obama had a secret bank account we wouldn't have found out about it, Obama isn't an idiot.

Hey, I'm with you. There's hope for the future. We could get Kamala Harris in there, and pave the way for even more good things in the future. We have a future worth hoping for. But I'm with you right now.
 
2020-10-21 9:43:56 PM  
Wow, Obama had the same humble beginnings as Henry Rollins and Ian Mackaye.

He's insulted Trump less than half as much as Trump has spent on a 15 year old autistic girl. Really shows you who the real man is.

It deserves more of people like him until everyone understands how a society should be.

There is a rule against it. The Constitution says that no one Constitutionally ineligible to be President shall be elected Vice President. That combined with the aforementioned 22nd Amendment (Presidential term limits) means that Obama was ineligible to be Biden's running mate.

That said, if Biden resigns (or worse, but being optimistic here) and Harris ascends to the Presidency, a new Vice President has to be appointed. Note that the Constitutional prohibition is against an ineligible-to-be-President V.P. from being elected as V.P. It says nothing about appointed. Such an appointment would need to pass simple majorities in both House and Senate according to that same Amendment.

Carter would've won re-election handily had it not been for a gust of wind in a desert on another continent. That gust doomed the Middle Class and unions, and may well have doomed America and perhaps all of civilization, since Carter was doing something about the environment and global climate change while there was still time.

Just read Obama's words out loud. You fall into his cadence, you pick up that Chicago/ Hawai'i accent.

Because if you didn't see him, and you just listened to his voice, Barack sounds like Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's next door neighbor, but since it's a trim black dude, you don't hear the Hawai'i.

Read that as "it's steaming now". Seems to work either way.

Working with the players to develop a plan is fine. It's not like he went on TV and bashed them.

I'm not even saying that playing and trying to effect change that way was the "right" move, but it's a valid move.
