This is the actual tribute to Neil Armstrong as it appears on President Obama’s Tumblr page that is operated by Organizing for America.

The touching remembrance of the first human being ever to set foot on the moon of course features a photo of… Obama:

Considering the level of humility that Armstrong demonstrated in his life, this speaks hilarious volumes.

Obama does have a way of inserting himself into history though.

    Obama was looking at the sky to see just how far up his ego had gone…..

    Blech! The man is so media overexposed hE is recognizable even in silhouette. Only J-LO's booty would take less time to be identified.

    So what exactly is hE supposed to be star gazing at?

    IF this figure is actually Zero how do we know he’s not looking AT the camera which would be more in character for him and, Armstrong having died on the 25th, the moon at that time should be past half full and moving toward full. The second full moon of this month, the “Blue” one, is coming this Friday, the 31st.

    His parabolic ears are picking up unusual signals and he's trying to pinpoint the source. Lucky a cameraman was there to capture the moment for posterity Uh-oh. Looks like its coming from that black hole. What a predicament. Finally, a sign of extraterrestrial life and we can't report it for fear of triggering charges of racism!

  12. Arleen on August 28th, 2012 2:38 am

    No, but they have plenty of room for 20,000 Muslims that will be there.

  13. Arleen on August 28th, 2012 2:41 am

    At least Bush loved this country, so unlike the jerk that's in the WH right now. Soon to be ex-pres…..All he has done is to make this country a lot worse off than we were before.

  14. Marty on August 28th, 2012 2:46 am

    you are the moron Ron, you spoke worse of Bush and your still blaming him when he did 100 times more for this country then Obama ever could he is nothing than a puppet for commies trying to destroy this country….. if you don't believe me go live in another country…. see how you fare there…..

  15. Becca on August 28th, 2012 3:00 am

    Ron, you say "You Americans"? Are you saying you are not American? If you are then you have a right to your oppinion no matter how wrong it is, if not, mind your own country, you don't know what your talking about.

  16. Ric on August 28th, 2012 3:08 am

    He wondered how many aliens up there that he may be able to furnish temporary amnesty for votes in November.

  17. sturmvogel on August 28th, 2012 9:46 am

    No teamwork? Were you asleep from 2009 to 2011 WHEN HE HAD BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND? The economy got worse, the debt rising exponetially—it's too bad he had so much "help".

  19. jeffythequick on August 28th, 2012 11:34 am

    Ron,

    First off, there are things called capital letters. You put them at the beginning of sentences by pressing the shift key (located next to the "z" and "/" keys. It makes the point you're trying to make clearer and more easily understood. If you have a chance, find your first grade teacher and demand your education from him or her.

    Secondly, at the end of sentences (those are the things that convey your thoughts that have a subject and predicate), just one period or question mark will suffice; also there is no need to have a space between the last word in the sentence and the ending punctuation mark.

    Now, for your substantive (as they were) points:
    1. This is what we think of our president, not how we "feel". This man has, by our accounts, failed in what he wanted to do. Furthermore, he had plenty of teamwork in the first two years of his presidency, with both houses of Congress (may I suggest you look up "I'm just a bill on Capitol Hill" on Youtube. It will explain a lot. In 2010, Americans voted in an opposition party to stop what Mr. Obama was doing, not to put a happy face on his wants.
    2. We don't have to look for his ego. He displays it wantonly. Listen to his speeches and those of another president, like Ronald Reagan. When you do this, look for the number of times Mr. Obama says, "I" or "me" or some form of that, versus his predecessors.
    3. Hating and complaining are two different things. Hate is when you have strong feelings and hopes that ill falls upon the object of your hate. I don't wish Mr. Obama ill. I wish he'd understand what it means to be an American. He was born in Hawaii, spent most of his childhood overseas, and then returns to go to the best schools in the country. I don't think he knows what it means to be a hard working American who pays his bills and has to struggle. I really don't.
    4. The government, as founded has worked wonders for the average American. It's when the Progressives took it over with their "living document" Constitution is when things started going haywire. I take that back. It is living. If you want to change it, see Article V of it. It has been changed 27 times, and many more if you start looking at various court interpretations of it.
    5. We protest. Did you see when the US Capitol was full of Tea Partiers? We protest, but we don't leave our effluence and debris for someone else to pick up. In fact, if a city wants to save money, they can ask the Tea Partiers to protest after an Occupy Wall Street protest. The place will be spotless afterward. However, I doubt many will show up, as we don't want our kids (yes, we bring our kids), walking through some OWS fleabagger defecation.

    Ron, I hope this helps you understand. But, really, I think you're a one hit wonder here. Post and run, because all your type typically has is one shot and you're done. At least that's what the ladies say.

  20. Truesoldier__ on August 28th, 2012 12:44 pm

    Well said, I might add that it is not just Obama's ego that is cause for concern. All politicians have an enormous ego and tend to crave the limelight, else they probably would not have gone into such a high profile job.

    The more worrisome trait of Obama is his narcissistic nature. He truly believes he is the smartest, most well equipped guy in the room and when his policies are obviously failing he cannot comprehend that it is even a possibility. This causes him to double-down on the failed policy, as in his mind they did not work due to a failure outside of his control (i.e. not enough money spent on the stimulus or the failure of someone else to properly implement the policy).

    Samuel Smiles (a Scottish Author) once said, "We learn more from our failures than our successes"; however someone with a narcissistic personality cannot comprehend that they could fail which leads them to commit the same mistakes repeatedly.

  21. backwoodsconsr on August 28th, 2012 12:58 pm

    Not to mention that in his initial meeting with Congressional Republicans he brushed their suggestions aside with the famous words "I won". Obama never had any intention of working with Republicans.

    The Republicans were welcome to kiss his ass and give him everything he wanted, but as you pointed out, there were enough Democrats in Congress that he got what he wanted anyway. Things just got worse. The one thing he didn't get was Cap and Trade, and I shudder to think how much harder making ends meet would be if he had been able to do that to energy prices.

  22. Granny55 on August 28th, 2012 1:14 pm

    Amen brother!

  23. Marshall_Will on August 28th, 2012 1:50 pm

    Truesoldier,

    The other failing of comprehension is Progs don't want to realize what Conservatives want more than anything in the world is to be LEFT ALONE to raise their families, run their biz's, lives etc.

    But WE… are the ones "with an 'agenda' ". REALLY? You progs do nothing but plot and plot and plan and plan but WE are the ones setting landmines, hatching little schemes.

    Sure thing! More classic projection. JFTR, would we be digging trenches and bunkers if we weren't under constant threat of attack? Think about it…

  24. SignPainterGuy on August 28th, 2012 2:28 pm

    Great discussion, ALL. Wow, look at all the guests who jumped in to refute Ron, the "Poop n Scooter" !

    I hope you`ll all stay and become regulars ! (sorry Jeffy for the space between my last word and the exclamation point. I use a half-space on my signs, but ya can`t do that on a `puter) ;-)

  26. Truesoldier__ on August 28th, 2012 2:54 pm

    Ever notice how when their plans explode in their faces it is never because it was a bad idea it was because it wasn't implemented properly?

    My favorite is the when they say Communism is a great theory it just is that the people running the show become so greedy that they ruin it. What most of them do not know is that collectivism was tried in America back when it was being colonized by the British.

    William Bradford (Governor of one of the settlements) wrote about how the settlement almost didn't survive the frist year due to collectivism. Everyone shared equally everyhting that was grown, made, collected, etc regardless of how much effort each person put into it. The young hardworking man received the same amount of rations as the lazy young man did. This lead to more people slacking off as there was no reward for hard work. After the first year the land was divided up and given to each settler to work for themselves. The harvest was much more boutiful that year and everyone was able to barter and trade with the other settlers to get what they needed. This was Americas first example of collectivism failing and capitalism succeeding.

  27. jeffythequick on August 28th, 2012 3:09 pm

    I didn't notice… :)

    But, hey, I didn't notice the moon in the pic either… until you pointed it out.

    Also, to echo what SPG said, make yourselves comfortable here! We enjoy the discussion!

  28. Marshall_Will on August 28th, 2012 3:10 pm

    I wasn't aware of that and it's a real lesson right out of the gate!

    Recently RedDog at MM's noted the whole term 'capitalism' really IS of commie construct. Prior to the introduction of Marx ( we simply called it "doing business" )

    Now progs have twisted it so hopelessly it's not at all uncommon to see it as "cr@pitalism" on most bubble blogs etc. They want as much as possible to conjure up the stigma of "Robber Baron" and the most negative imagery they can muster.

    Which is what I picture when I'm calling the nice lady from our church that runs Rover's Makeover when I get an appt. for Mrs. Will's Shih Tzu…

  29. jeffythequick on August 28th, 2012 3:21 pm

    It was also tried in the early LDS church, and it failed as well:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Order

    I'm a bit partial to the LDS one, and I can see why it failed. People were involved, and whenever that happens, everyone starts out with the best intentions, but when they see Brother Jones resting for a week and getting the same as widowed Sister Wilson who worked in the snow while her kids were ill, and the tension and ill feelings result.

    It's the same as the grasshopper demanding that the ant give him his food because the ant has so much.

    I say, $^&#$ you, grasshopper. The season for harvesting was over, and you were out playing around.

  30. SignPainterGuy on August 28th, 2012 3:48 pm

    Isn`t this the prelude to the first Thanksgiving dinner with the indians, who saved their starving butts because of collectivism ? Or am I combining some disparate stories ?

  31. Truesoldier__ on August 28th, 2012 4:17 pm

    I was not aware of that one, but it just goes to prove that everytime collectivism has been tried it has failed.

    As for the grasshopper and the harvest it reminds me of the updated take on the grasshopper and ant fable:

  32. SignPainterGuy on August 28th, 2012 4:36 pm

    The new version teaches a great lesson as well, but did you notice some grammatical errors ?; question marks for apostrophes and quotation marks ! ?Fascinating !?

  33. ChapBix on August 28th, 2012 9:26 pm

    Certainly extends the meaning of illegal "alien".

  34. ChapBix on August 28th, 2012 9:55 pm

    The welfare system we have now is a semi-system of collectivism. Some who collect welfare benefits do work, even if it is at minimum wage. I do not begrudge them what they receive if they are seeking to better themselves, develop a good work ethic and preparing for a better job or vocation.

  35. jeffythequick on August 28th, 2012 11:12 pm

    He wondered how many aliens undocumented extraterrestrials up there that he may be able to furnish temporary amnesty for votes in November.

    FIFY

  36. jeffythequick on August 28th, 2012 11:17 pm

    ChapBix,

    The LDS system? It is a model of what is great about what good people do selflessly, and at their own free choice.

    The old line where Communism only works in two places: Heaven, where it's not needed, and Hell, where it's enforced.

    Having received the benefits from the Bishop's storehouse, and Mrs. the quick receiving it after her first husband passed away (at the Bishop's and RS President's insistence), it is God's work. But, the Bishop does want you to have a plan to get off of church welfare, and there are interviews to ensure that you do get off of it.

  37. NWgirl123 on August 31st, 2012 10:50 am

    Oh don't you mean " I have to make it to a fundraiser paid for by the American people"?

  38. SignPainterGuy on August 31st, 2012 8:39 pm

    That IS understood by ALL, but you know he`d never express it in that term !
