A horrendous human tragedy continues to worsen in Japan; There is civil war in Libya; February was the highest deficit of any month in history.

Fortunately though we have a leader who is right on top of it:

PRESIDENT OBAMA is taping his NCAA picks today, and they’ll be revealed tomorrow on ESPN.

And I don’t know what the solutions to all the pressing problems the world is facing are, but apparently the answers are in Rio.

    You expect more from BHO?

    I'd be happy if he'd just stay on the basketball court and watch TV., and stay in the White House. He is so imcompetent, he's better off doiing nothing.

    He has to gas up Air Force One every day, just to go to some golf course, while many Americans are saying.."Can I afford fast food today?"

    And I bet…he takes ALL his friends to Rio, at our expense before he leaves office.

    I sure hope he doesn't pick Michigan State to beat UCLA…

    People, why does this sort of thing continue to surprise you? This person, whose very name should be shunned, put the czars in place to do what you think he should be doing. Going in to this (the presidency) he had no intention of actually doing the job of president nor does he even have the experience or know-how.

    One of the very first things he did was put other more knowledgeable people in place, calling them “czars” and leaving him, his female and their offspring plenty of time for a four year vacation, golfing at home and going where they want in the world and when they want and getting the American taxpayer to foot the complete bill.

    Remember one of his administration’s mantra’s from Ram: Never let a good crisis go to waste. Never let yourself get under too much pressure. Take a look back and coordinate world events with every time he skipped town.

    Right now it’s carnival time in Rio. There is no business that calls the President of The United States to Brazil right now but mama still wants to go so lies and phony, non-existent items are created and put on the presidential agenda to create a reason to go. What type of conversations do you imagine go on between those two?

    His “presidential business travel” is the only part of his presidency that is truly transparent.

    Don't see where folks are really surprised, Clu. I just confirms what we already know. The level of hypocricy and cluelessness coming from our CinC is mind numbing, and here's another example – for the reasons you point out.

    It's kinda scary that he's at 43% favorability. I would think he'd be in the 20's by now. He's probably never worked a day in his life and has no idea how to even start. He certainly knows how to play though.

  7. Clu Seatoe on March 15th, 2011 6:32 pm

    No need to be afraid. You are closer to being correct with your guess of favorability in 20 percentile. Remember, that information comes to us via the liberal media.

    The elephant in the room that everybody knows and believes but you’ll never hear reported is that he was elected because of his skin color and for no other reason.

    The 20 percentile includes those who voted on the basis of skin color and will most probably never vote otherwise, the white gilt voters, the unions, voting the Chicago way (one dead man, multiple votes), the socialists and communists, the media, the independents who didn’t do their homework and the Democrats who didn’t realize what they were getting into and have since turned their back on him. The latter two are the ones who have brought his favorability rating steadily downward.

    A lot of the blame however, belongs to the Conservative Republicans who believed him to be just another Democrat. We had dealt with them before, we could again, and skin color was not an issue so no problem. But, with no background on the empty suit, we had no point of reference and with the McCain/Palin ticket; well we knew half of what we didn’t want.

    Result of voter apathy. Sorry, mum, won’t happen again.

    Fairly sums it up for me. Again, being ratings-driven, I don't expect Sean Hannity to come on my TV and openly admit this clown doesn't have a snowball's chance in HELL of being re-elected!

    ( Where's the drama in that? ) So even the conserv. side of the MSM has no vested interest in exposing just how brooooad the gap really 'is'? Again to parphrase MM in '08 "Make sure and -thank- all your "moderate/'independent' "friends!" Yeah.., I'm talking to YOU Mr. Cubicle Dweller next to me!

    Obviously we need now more than ever to remain vigilant, but getting all nervous about only helps the Prog Agenda. IMHO.

    I feel somewhat uplifted now. It's amazing that we still have " no background" on him.
