    I smirked when Obama said Trump has no foreign policy experience. Before 2008 Obama's foreign policy experience would have consisted of trips to Chicago's North Side.

    No, he said Trump did have some foreign policy experience, because he has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world: Miss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan.

    lol

    Actually, as a US Senator prior to his Presidential inauguration in 2009, "Obama held assignments on the Senate Committee for Foreign Relations... He also became Chairman of the Senate's Subcommittee on European Affairs. As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Obama made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa."

    I do rather think that trumps Trump for official US government foreign policy experience, prior to Obama's first run for President. And is a bit more than "Chicago's North Side".

    This is one of many things that is wrong with our system. The president is a clown and has no place addressing celebrities and the like. Clowns

    Historically, he has been pretty conservative in his use of executive orders - even while Congress managed to hit its lowest job approval rating ever (9%).

    Not even remotely "satire". It was a specific & direct attack on Obama for allegedly having as little foreign policy experience as Trump does during Obama's own first run for the White House. I welcome the opportunity to have corrected that deliberate misinformation.

    While Obama's own job approval ratings are exceeding 50%, exceptional for a President this late in his second term.

    But it's also part of the false Republican narrative that Obama is abusing his executive order authority. Despite having the lowest order rate since President Grover Cleveland in the 1800s! That's a span of 127 years!

    But then Republicans will invent & promulgate any lie against Democratic office holders, and those running for office. Look what they're trying to do to Hillary Clinton. The outright falsehoods and distortions are nonstop, and will get worse as November approaches.

    Exactly. If anything, it was anti-satire. The level of discourse from the rump of the conservarump is truly woeful. I'm sure that if you added up the IQs of desertmuscl, 2bnaked and JackNNJ, it would still only be in double figures.

    Obama = dumbfuck. Else his followers are dumbfucks. Probably a bit of both.

    Russian fighters barnstormed the USS Donald Cook and Obama blames some “hot dog” Russian pilots involved in "reckless and provocative actions."

    WTF

    The problems with Obama EO's aren't of quantity, they're of quality.

    Perhaps they should appoint a House Select Committee (with a GOP majority, of course) to investigate the whole matter. Clinton could then be called and closely questioned regarding her involvement in this tragedy. Oh wait...
