Imagine a world in which President Barack Obama is actually competent and his cronies are honest and dedicated public servants, as opposed to wire-pulling cretins who think the public exists to serve them. Instead, what some Democrats still call an “Administration” more closely resembles a crime syndicate.
In the television business, they call it “jumping the shark.” The phrase was inspired by a rather infamous episode of “Happy Days.” In the years that followed, “jumping the shark” entered the lexicon as a phrase that identifies the subject as having passed the point of value on the path to self-parody. Even those few men who have inhabited the highest office in the land have leaped over the proverbial predator.
Obama lays down the law. Sorry conservatives, but you brought this on yourselves. And Pelosi suffers the side effects. All this — plus — it’s curtains for Kermit. Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
I’m often asked by conservative friends how I continue to laugh at the increasingly Orwellian sideshow presented by President Barack Obama and his accomplices. Most of them expect the old “laugh or you’ll cry” saw, which isn’t entirely inappropriate.
President Barack Obama and his Democratic accomplices have spun themselves sick trying to stay ahead of the scandal they created in Benghazi, Libya. The talking points proffered by the fringe leftists who have taken over the Federal government have swerved from the ridiculous to the insultingly stupid.
Breaking news — Obama lied. They give awards for that? And I expected 90% of America to look bigger. All this, plus — remedial history for liberals. Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
President Barack Obama’s supporters have shrugged off myriad scandals and lies. Either Americans can live with that, or we can’t. If the former is true, then we deserve no better than Obama. If the latter is true, the elections in 2014 and 2016 will likely be our last chance to do something about it.
Normally, someone who oversees the engineering of a program that leads directly to the murders of hundreds of people and then acts as if questions about the program are somehow unfair or even racist is either an absolute idiot or an outright sociopath. But “normally” and “President Barack Obama” seldom collide in the same sentence.
Benghazi was just a crappy town in a crappy country, “global warming” was called “global cooling,” and Kermit Gosnell was just another abortionist.

Richard Nixon is hardly lonely on the list of Presidents who lied. Lying wasn’t Nixon’s downfall; hubris was. Nixon forgot that the White House isn’t a palace, and Presidents are not kings. But he was neither the first nor the last to make that error. Witness the progress of the current Lord of the Oval Office.
