Allow me to count you the ways:
1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting’s #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.
2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.
3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)
4. Can’t speak in a fake, southern, “black preacher voice” when necessary.
5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School… and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.
6. Doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today’s America?
7. Represents an America of “yesterday”, where people believed in God, went to Church, didn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!
8. Has a family of five great sons….and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that “choice” deserves America’s scorn.
9. Oh yes…..he’s a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.
10. And one more point…..pundits say because of his wealth, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that’s because he made that money HIMSELF…..as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad. Apparently, he didn’t understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans.
But, on the minus side, he never was a “Community Organizer”, never took drugs or smoked pot, never got drunk, did not associate with communists or terrorists, nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US. [Oooops!]
As Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel once said – Never let a good crisis go to waste…
Following the Arizona sheriff’s explosive press conference yesterday on Obama’s birth certificate, Donald Trump tweeted a barrage of more demands for openness and transparency from the president last night.
Power Line said the speech was good…
The crowd LOVED It!
And, look kids… No TelePrompter!
See for yourself. Mitt Romney SLAMMED the Socialist In Chief today in Irwin, PA.
“Liberal Policies Don’t Make Good Jobs!”
(Hell, they don’t make any jobs!)
I know I am not.
Now imagine if Mitt Romney did this?
Emails exchanged by top U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirm that ICE delayed the deportation of President Obama’s uncle, an illegal immigrant, and that they had a close eye on Mitt Romney’s view of the issue.
“Mr. Onyango is subject to a final order of deportation. ICE had granted him a stay of deportation effective until June 5, 2012,” Brian Hale, director of ICE’s public affairs, explained in an April 1, 2012 email to ICE Director John Morton that was obtained by Judicial Watch. “The stay was granted to allow him to attend pending criminal proceedings and to seek reopening of his deportation proceedings, which concluded before the Board of Immigration Appeals on January 29, 1992.”
The emails also show that Hale kept Morton apprised of how Onyango Obama’s case was playing in the media. When Mitt Romney said in December 2011 that he would deport Onyango Obama following his arrest for drunk driving, Hale sent the news report to Morton and other members of ICE leadership.
“It certainly appears that Obama’s uncle is receiving favorable treatment from the Obama administration, which explains that we had to sue in federal court to obtain this material,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “ICE should have deported Onyango immediately, especially after his DUI. We now know that the Obama administration decided not to deport Obama’s uncle despite his being a criminal and being on the lam for at least 20 years.”

Back in 1996 Congress passed a welfare reform act.
Obama’s just gutted it so that he can take credit for not only being the “Food Stamp President” but the “Welfare President” and buy his way into re-election.
Republicans are accusing the Obama administration of unilaterally gutting welfare reform after the Department of Health and Human Services quietly notified states that they may seek a waiver for the program’s strict work requirements.
HHS made the announcement in a policy memo Thursday, news that slipped well below the radar amid a raucous day on the presidential campaign trail. But a few prominent GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill picked up on the change, and accused the administration of overhauling one of the most important bipartisan agreements of the past several decades.
“President Obama just tore up a basic foundation of the welfare contract” Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said in a statement. He also called the move a “blatant violation of the law.”
Mitt Romney on Friday spoke up on the change, saying: “President Obama now wants to strip the established work requirements from welfare.” He said “the linkage of work and welfare is essential to prevent welfare from becoming a way of life.”
How exactly the HHS change will play out is unclear. In Thursday’s policy directive, the department said the states may seek a waiver from the work component of the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program, in order to “test alternative and innovative strategies, policies and procedures that are designed to improve employment outcomes for needy families.”
In the words of Allen West, we are now giving these lazy, shiftless, worthless POS a government hammock they can lay in and watch the world go by. Meanwhile, the rest of us have to bust our asses to ay the taxes that allow these vermin to have an easy, carefree life where their rent is paid, their utilities are paid, they get food stamps they can abuse to buy alcohol and manicures, free education, free cell phones and free health care. And don’t forget the free air conditioners!
While the Obama campaign goes all out attacking Mitt Romney’s business history, the Romney campaign is looking carefully at a new Obama administration policy that could become a significant part of Romney’s case against the president. In a quiet move Thursday — barely noted beyond the conservative press — the Obama administration “released an official policy directive rewriting the welfare reform law of 1996,” according to Robert Rector, a welfare policy expert at the Heritage Foundation.
The directive — which some Romney aides found stunning — allows the Department of Health and Human Services to waive the work requirement at the heart of welfare reform. That reform, originally vetoed but later signed into law by President Bill Clinton, is widely viewed as the most successful policy initiative in a generation. Under it, the growth in welfare rolls was reversed and millions of people moved from welfare to work.
Despite its success, however, many liberals remain opposed to reform. For example, in the years immediately after passage of the law, Barack Obama himself pledged to do all he could to undo it. Now, he has.
This is what Romney needs to be talking about instead of falling in Obama’s trap to talk about his job with Bain Capital and defending himself from FALSE claims by Obama and his Chicago ‘mobsters’! .Obama can NOT run on his record and he knows it!. Will someone PLEASE tell ROMNEY!……..PM
For the fourth straight year in a row the US national deficit will exceed over $1 trillion.
Barack Obama added $5 trillion to national debt in a little over 3 years.
A new world record.
Soon to be $6 trillion.
Barack Obama and Democrats added over one trillion dollars to the annual Federal Budget in the last 4 years.
That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.
And you best be prepared to pay the A/C bills for these people who will start leaving doors and windows open because they’re not paying these several hundred dollar ills.
And, of course, to make you think it’s only for the elderly they show a picture of one:
But people making up to $46,100 are eligible!!!!!
$46,100!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And these bastards can’t afford a $159 A/C? Betcha they all have cell phones and cable, though! But US taxpayers are now making them comfortable.
Meanwhile no one is helping me pay my bills!
Thanks to a mild winter, vouchers for up to 700 free air conditioners may be available to low- and moderate-income families through the Lorain County Community Action Agency, according to interim President and CEO Jackie Boehnlein.
“It is exciting,” said Boehnlein about HEAP — the Home Energy Assistance Program’s Summer Crisis Program — which is funded by federal taxpayer dollars.
The agency already has distributed vouchers worth $250 to 325 families, she said.
It has 25 vouchers remaining and has applied for permission to distribute 350 more vouchers, she said.
The winter was so mild that leftover money from the heating assistance program was allocated to the cooling program, she said.
The vouchers are good for a $159 LG brand air conditioner from Home Depot and assistance paying electrical bills, Boehnlein said.
For the first time, those with disconnection notices are eligible, she said.
This year, LCCAA received $671,000 in funding for assistance with electric utility bills and air conditioners, she said.
That compares with $155,000 for 2011 summer season when the agency distributed 200 of the vouchers, she said.
Applicants are eligible if their household incomes are at or below 200 percent of the 2012-13 federal poverty guidelines and if they are seniors, have a disconnection notice or a documented medical condition such as asthma or lung disease.
A family of four making up to $46,100 qualifies for the program.
A few days ago an old friend sent me a Vietnam Veteran cap. I never had one of these before, and I was pretty hyped about it, especially because my friend was considerate enough to take the time to give it to me.
Yesterday I wore it when I went to Walmart. There was nothing in particular that I needed at the worlds largest retailer; but since I retired, trips to Wally World to look at the Walmartians is always good for some comic relief. Besides, I always feel pretty normal after seeing some of the people that frequent the establishment. But I digress…enough of my psychological fixations.
While standing in line to check out, the guy in front of me, probably in his early thirties, asked, Are you a Viet Nam Vet?
No, I replied.
Then why are you wearing that cap?
Because I couldn’t find the one from the War of 1812.
I thought it was a snappy retort.
The War of 1812, huh? the Walmartian queried, When was that?
God forgive me, but I couldn’t pass up such an opportunity.
1936, I answered as straight-faced as possible.
He pondered my response for a moment and responded, Why do they call it the War of 1812 if it was in 1936?
It was a Black Op. No one is supposed to know about it.
This was beginning to be way fun!
Dude! Really? he exclaimed. How did you get to do something that COOOOL?
I glanced furtively around me for effect, leaned toward the guy and in a low voice said, I’m not sure. I was the only Caucasian on the mission.
Dude, he was really getting excited about what he was hearing, that is seriously awesome! But didn’t you kind of stand out?
Not really. The other guys were wearing white camouflage.
The moron nodded knowingly.
Listen man, I said in a very serious tone, You cant tell anyone about this. Its still top secret and I shouldn’t have said anything.
Oh yeah? he gave me that don’t threaten me look.
Like, whats gonna happen if I do?
With a really hard look I said, You have a family don’t you? We wouldn’t want anything to happen to them, would we?
The guy gulped, left his basket where it was and fled through the door. By this time the lady behind me was about to have a heart attack, she was laughing so hard. I just grinned at her.
After checking out and going to the parking lot I saw Dimwit leaning in a car window talking to a young woman. Upon catching sight of me he started pointing excitedly in my direction. Giving him another deadly serious look, I made the I see you gesture. He turned kind of pale, jumped in the car and sped out of the parking lot.
What a great time!
Tomorrow I’m going back with a Homeland Security cap.
Whoever said retirement is boring just needs the right kind of cap!

All dogs go to heaven – But some keep their voter registration current.
Brenda Charlston holds a photo of her long-deceased dog, Rosie, and a voter registration form for “Rosie Charlston” that arrived in the mail for the canine last month in Seattle. Rosie was a black lab who died in 1998. A left-leaning group called the Voter Participation Center has touted the distribution of some 5 million registration forms in recent weeks, targeting Democratic voting blocs such as unmarried women, blacks, Latinos and young adults. But residents and election administrators around the country have also reported a series of bizarre and questionable mailings addressed to animals, dead people and people already registered to vote. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
The liberal group Voter Participation Center sent out 5,000,000 voter registration forms – many to dogs and dead people. The groups says it has registered more than 350,000 since last September 2011.
The AP reported:
……BUT hurry dates are running out between now and the election this November!
