Obama derangement syndrome
Apr 16th 2009
What is clear is that the rapid replacement of Bush-hatred with Obama-hatred is not healthy for American politics, particularly given the president’s dual role as leader of his party and head of state. A majority of Republicans (56%) approved of Jimmy Carter’s job performance in late March 1977. A majority of Democrats (55%) approved of Richard Nixon’s job performance at a comparable point in his first term. But today polarisation is almost instant, thanks in part to the growing role of non-negotiable issues such as abortion in American politics, in part to the rise of a media industry based on outrage, and in part to a cycle of tit-for-tat demonisation. This is not only poisoning American political life. It is making it ever harder to solve problems that require cross-party collaboration such as reforming America’s health-care system or its pensions. Unfortunately, the Glenn Becks of this world are more than just a joke.
Everytime I hear another story about bed bugs, I have to wonder about Obama and the liberals.
There was a time when everyone had bed bugs. Folks tried their hardest to keep bed bugs under control. Bed bugs were considered a bad thing. I've read that families even put the posts of their beds in buckets of kerosene to keep bed bugs from joining them. Imagine, sleeping in kerosene, smelling those fumes all night...all to keep bed bugs at bay.
Bed bugs were considered a bad thing. They spread disease, and are uncomfortable to live with.
There was a big effort to eradicate bed bugs. Someone came up with the idea (from what I've read) of putting a small amount of pesticide or insect repellent in mattresses, and other furniture to keep out the bugs. In many places, like the US, bed bugs were a thing of the past and everyone slept better (even if they didn't know it).
Like most things in life, there are reports of a small number of people who are allergic to the chemical. What does the government do? Ban the chemicals in beds and furniture.
If some people are allergic, let everyone have bed bugs.
What is the result? Bed bugs are the next epidemic.
Pick up your furniture yourself...bed bugs might come on the delivery truck.
Bed bugs aren't a sign of dirt or class, everyone has them!
That seems to be a liberal and Obama rally cry - Stuff isn't bad and we must widely share our disease, pest, and misery.
For generations, folks have worked to eliminate poverty, bed bugs, and high prices.
Obama seems to be for all the bad things in life - poverty, bed bugs, and high prices.
It's not that he's against Americans, he just for everyone else and bed bugs.
just my humble opinions
Did Obama Even Peek at Mississippi Floods?

Serious questions are being raised as to whether President Barack Obama even looked out of the window of Air Force One when he flew over areas hit by the Mississippi floods.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said he hadn’t seen the president even peek, White House Dossier reports.
If proven true, it could be highly embarrassing for Obama and belie the suggestion that he cares for the common folk. One of the defining images of George W. Bush’s presidency was the shot of him looking down on New Orleans from the same plane after Hurricane Katrina. Though Bush returned to the area a few days later, the damage had been done.
Obama flew over the flood area on his way to El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday. Reporters on board Air Force One asked Carney if the president had looked at the devastation caused by the rising waters.
“I haven’t seen him do that,” replied Carney. “But I haven’t been with him for the full flight so far.”
