    Obama gets locked out of White House after a photo op:



    "But Bush wasn't at his own house, and of course, Bush was endlessly derided for looking like an idiot."

    Bush IS an idiot. The examples are endless. To suggest that the "media" treated him badly, when they supported his wars, tax cuts, and overlooked a lot his blatant lies is just silly.

    Yeah, Bush is just friggin' stupid. The media had to AVOID showing just how moronic he was in office. His already tiny brain was fried by past drugs & alcohol, to the point where he rarely spoke a coherent sentence that wasn't on a teleprompter in front of him.

    Only FOX and other right-wing media consistently covered it up, and gave a false impression and plenty of excuses for what this world-class idiot was saying. But not for the first time, there are precedents. Like when Ronald Reagan was clearly suffering from Alzheimer's in his second term, and falling asleep during Cabinet meetings, it was all hushed up.

    And quite frankly, that liberal icon Franklin Roosevelt, too. Who, at the end of his third term was clearly failing, and should never have been elected to a fourth term, ongoing world war or not. He died just a few months after his 4th inauguration. And his weakness against Stalin at Yalta may have set the stage for the Cold War and the Iron Curtain. But the press then, as now, hides these things.

    Bush's idiocy, Reagan's Alzheimer's, Roosevelt's heart disease -- a little truth would be refreshing.

    Add Woodrow Wilson to the list. JFK also had numerous physical maladies. The press has changed so much since Wilson and Roosevelt. Could you imagine the press not reporting that the President uses a wheelchair in this day and age?

    When Obama was elected President comidians evrywhere went into morning. They were convinced that nobody could ever replace G. W. Bush for things to joke about. Were they ever wrong. With every passing day, it become more and more clear that Obama has what it takes to become the greatest lauhingstock in American history an excustable sorce of political jokes.

    Obama calls defisit spending an investment , then it must not cost anything.

    Did you hear about the "yes we can" slogan? Well a reporter asked Obama can you fool a nation in thinking you are a moderate? "yes we can." Another reporter asked: Can you convince all the reporters to ignore your assiation with a known terrorist? "Yes we can." Another reporter asked Obama cand you natonalise the banks? "Yes we can."


    How does Obama win the war on Terror? He renames it! It's now the Overseas Contingency.

    Did you hear about the reporter who asked Obama a hard Question? Neither have we.

    Whats the diffrence between Obama and God? God does not call himself Obama. But Obama can not put on weight, for fear of not being able to walk on water.

    Why want Obama release his birth ceryificate? He hasn't decided where he was born.

    What does CNN stand for? Comunist news Network.

    True about Wilson, his wife really ran the country during his stroke, which the public didn't fully know. As for Roosevelt and his wheelchair, that was a physical impairment, that conventions of politeness at that time disguised. Yet the public knew about the car Henry Ford gave him, that had all hand controls and didn't require the use of his legs. The US public KNEW it, but it was just bad manners to actually SHOW it.

    FDR would be fitted with heavy metal leg braces, and you'll see newsreels of him standing with aides at his elbows, supporting him. But his mind was sharp, and he was a really dynamic personality, who dominated the US political landscape for over a decade, bringing this country through the Great Depression and most of World War II.

    But as his heart failed so did his energy and possibly his mind. He was done by 1944 and should not have run for a fourth term (now prohibited by Constitutional Amendment). His weakness may have allowed Stalin to win political concessions for the Soviet Union that a stronger Roosevelt would never have allowed, and that greatly disturbed Churchill.

    As for JFK, his back problems were disguised from the public as well. I'm not sure he was ever on meds that would have impaired his judgment, and so therefore I don't have a problem with him maintaining his privacy.

    Oh yes indeed JFK did recived injections for his back pain, there was an indiction going on too. But this is no excuse for his bad, irresponsible behavior, or his familys for that matter.

    JFK was to do the first American health care. So I'm sure there is something in the samll print about tits; giggle.

    LOL!
    Such a clueless ignorant denial just proves that I was right.

    Good luck!

    Why should democrates be buried 100 feet deep? because deep down they are good.

    How can you tell there is an affterlife for democrates? Because after they die, they lie still

    What happens when you cross a big with a democrate? Nothing, there are somethings the big want do.
