If the President’s hijinks seem too small for national discussion, that’s because they are. However, focusing on them isn’t petty; it’s a result of Obama’s seemingly reflexive tendency to lie, even when telling the truth would be easier.
Hands off the President, Hillary. An inconvenient child. And meeting girls with Senator Menendez. All this — plus — cold crimes with Christie Hefner. Presented in 1080 hi-def; FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
While I fully understand the desire to preserve some semblance of gender roles in an increasingly confused society, I struggle to comprehend the idea that women are somehow unable to perform properly in a firefight because they’re using different plumbing.
What if I could interrupt one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s secret skeet-shooting sessions for a little verbal one-on-one? What questions would I pose to the most deliberately opaque President in American history?
If half a million people march for life on Washington, D.C., and the media pretend not to hear them, did they still make a statement in defense of the unborn? The corporate media flacks and their Democratic overlords would likely respond: “Did you hear about the college football player and his fake girlfriend?”

They’re so cute when they’re being exploited. Finally, a job Holder can handle. And meet the Army, Senator Feinstein. All this, plus, a REPUBLICAN joke! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
Observing Gun Appreciation Day strikes me as a bit on the juvenile side. It’s almost as if the celebrants will be throwing an exceptionally noisy tantrum. It also undersells the importance of the central issue: making private firearm ownership a bone of contention instead of the symbol of American unity it should be.
