So even with the smartest administration evarrr, El JEFe still doesn't know wtf he's talking about while taking a cheap shot at somebody doubtlessly a much better President than he is? The deuce you say!

maryrose

Second!
I have been to the Rutherford B. Hayes presidential historical site. It is wonderful!
Sue: I also am insulted and dismayed by Obama's continuous snarky, condescending and dismissive tone in all of his speeches.
What a douchebag!
At least Hayes was in the military. At last count neither Obama or Clinton ever spent a day obeying what someone else told him to do.Military experience should be a prerequisite for the job. Now Obama has screwed up Afghanistan.

narciso

What a petulant little man, casting doubt on a fellow Harvard Law grad, brigadier general, reformist Congressman, strong but reconstructionist, even the disputed election, that marked him as 'His fraudulency'
had more to do with Dem skullduggery in the states in question,

Jane (get off the couch - come save the country)

I also am insulted and dismayed by Obama's continuous snarky, condescending and dismissive tone in all of his speeches

Clinton's legacy was that every kid in jr high school decided a blow job was "not sex" and Obama's legacy will be that Presidents are sarcastic and disrespectful.

Dennet Hushka

Obama said that under his plan "electric rates would necessarily skyrocket". At least we will be able to afford electricity on our flat earth.

narciso

That was part of it, but the other of Cloward and Piven's handiwork, including the CRA revisions, the slashing of the military, and the deployment on fools errands not unlike the Kony hunt, while ignoring AQ's rise,

Ignatz

--He’s explaining why we can’t do something instead of why we can do something.--

Did it ever occur to President Dumbass a more pertinent question might be should we do something not can we?

jimmyk

I doubt Barry even realizes that Hayes was a civil rights pioneer--not in the modern sense of victimhood and demands for special privileges, but in trying to assure that blacks got equal treatment under the law.

PaulL

Just in case anyone missed it in the previous thread, the great Paul Ryan's ad:

Jack is Back!

I wonder what Hayes' opinion was of CRT?

If Jane couldn't pass Obama's class - could Hayes?

The reason Obama won't be on Rushmore is there is no room for those ears.

Sara

Obama sucks!

Sue

It might do Obama some good to study Rutherford B. Hayes. He might not be so dismissive of him if he actually knew history instead of reading a teleprompter.

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

Now Sue, the final four is on. He doesn't have time for such drivel.

Sue

All Obama knows is Hayes has an R after his name. And I doubt he even knew that much until someone told him to use the joke.

Sue

And all those "smart" kids at the college, laughing at Obama's joke. They probably didn't even know who Hayes was.

He is Wiley E Obama 'super genius' which doesn't stop from running off cliffs from time to time;

Jim Ryan

IQ:

Gore: 115
Dubya: 130
Slick: 150
Zero: 125
Cheney: 145
Biden: 115

My guesses. When you factor in character and common sense, as well as strength of intellectual habits, the observed behaviors are well explained.

Ben Franklin

Dubya 130? Thats's your guess?

I guess you think curley cue lightbulbs make your flat earth valid.

Far from encyclopedic, leaving out the context of the 1876 election, the Klan's

Obama sucks so much ...the dog doesn't even like him. LOL

Rick Ballard

125? Are you imagining an IQ test which weights low cunning above comprehension and ability to discern patterns? You could test him 'til he turned green and he'd never crack 115. There is a very good reason why he is never separated from a teleprompter in any of the 57 states.

Jack is Back!

Of those Jim posted, I'd like to see any of them pass flight school and drive an F-105. I know Ben doesn't need to since he is made of feathers. But the other guys? Do they have the right stuff? Maybe Cheney but his heart couldn't take the G's even with a pressure suit. Slick would have to lose 30 pounds and Gore would have to learn real science. Zero is over-rated and wouldn't even understand that the plane doesn't fly on algae.

But Biden, he might be able to do it as long as he shut up long enough to get ATC directions of the taxiway unto the runway.

Jim Ryan

You could be right, Rick. I'm trying to compensate for my contempt for Zero by being as generous as I can.

Danube of Thought

I think this low, trashy, petty man has stepped on his crank this time. Fact-checkers will be coming out of the woodwork on this one, and this asshole will not fare well at all.

And let us lie in wait for when we next hear raucous calls for "respect for the office of the presidency."

Sue

I have zero respect for Obama. And it is going down from there.

Jim Ryan

Yup, Jack. There are several varieties of intelligence not measured by an IQ test, and they have corresponding stupidities.

Jack is Back!

Ain't YouTube great?

From Ryder Cup Captain Paul Azinger comes this blast from the past.

"I'm trying to compensate for my contempt for Zero by being as generous as I can."

Ah - the Tribe method. Gotta be careful with that one. Tribe degraded and devalued an entire law school with it.

Jim Ryan

I agree that Obama's SAT math score was probably quite disappointing to AA bureaucrats trying to make the case for him.

centralcal

I think this low, trashy, petty man has stepped on his crank this time.

Oh, DoT. Just another day, just another step... (you think he still has one - crank, that is?)

With all the rain we've had this year, the bluebonnets should be especially pretty. I'll never look at one again without remembering her.

Obama still sucks, and I still miss her.

Jim Ryan

Ha! Rick.

Oh, and folks, if you haven't seen the $8K gas story, click on "disappoinging" above. Yes, I think Zero struggled with math, finance, economics, and science courses. If he took them. Which we aren't allowed to know. Because we aren't allowed to see the transcripts. The reason for that being, well, I think we all know.

March 14 Statement on Religious Freedom and HHS Mandate
excerpts:

To address the broader range of religious liberty issues, we look forward to the upcoming publication of "A Statement on Religious Liberty," a document of the Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty. This document reflects on the history of religious liberty in our great Nation; surveys the current range of threats to this foundational principle; and states clearly the resolve of the Bishops to act strongly, in concert with our fellow citizens, in its defense.

and
So what is it about?
An unwarranted government definition of religion.. . .
A mandate to act against our teachings.. . .
A violation of personal civil rights.. . .

Concluding:
We will continue our vigorous efforts at education and public advocacy on the principles of religious liberty and their application in this case (and others). We will continue to accept any invitation to dialogue with the Executive Branch to protect the religious freedom that is rightly ours. We will continue to pursue legislation to restore the same level of religious freedom we have enjoyed until just recently. And we will continue to explore our options for relief from the courts, under the U.S. Constitution and other federal laws that protect religious freedom. All of these efforts will proceed concurrently, and in a manner that is mutually reinforcing.

Most importantly of all, we call upon the Catholic faithful, and all people of faith, throughout our country to join us in prayer and penance for our leaders and for the complete protection of our First Freedom—religious liberty—which is not only protected in the laws and customs of our great nation, but rooted in the teachings of our great Tradition. Prayer is the ultimate source of our strength—for without God, we can do nothing; but with God, all things are possible.

Oh yes, she could, Sue. And, entertain the hell out of all of us.

Clarice reminds us she was originally from Whis-can-sin (Wisconsin). Wonder where she picked up her ear for regional dialects?

Sue

This morning, on Fox & Friends, there was a segment about child labor laws and how the Obama administration either was going to or already had made it where children couldn't work on their family farms. I missed most of it and just now thought of it again. Anyone know what they were talking about?

Porchlight

Obama's legacy will be that Presidents are sarcastic and disrespectful.

A major goal of the left is to drag all institutions into the gutter with them. So eventually, they hope, no one will remember how Presidents (and their wives, and their administrations) used to comport themselves, or how qualified candidates used to have to be in order to be elected.

Team Obama's doing a bang-up job moving that ball forward.

She used sad, which were her initials, when she first came here. After she disclosed her illness to us, we thought sad was what she was. No. I'm sure she was sad, but she never let on. She changed it to mad, and then after she started getting salty, to bad. And bad she was.

I hope bad's family and friends won't mind my posting this photo of her. It's from a group of pics a friend posted on her memorial Facebook page:

What a beautiful young homemaker she was!

DrJ

The old timers here may recall that there was an effort to uncover Obama's role in the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. The three of us who contributed were Susie Donovan, JMH, and yours truly.

SAD/BAD had a wonderful ability to find public information that was very obscure and pass it along. I dutifully posted this on my web site. And the information was good enough that Steve Diamond and Stanley Kurtz both used it. High praise for her abilities, I think.

Through it all she was aggressive, direct, yet charming. It was a wonderful time.

So I'll lift a Sonoma County Zin in her remembrance.

AliceH

How weird is this? I'm watching "Awake" right now. Bad guy escaped convict is really innocent of killing that drug dealer named Derek Bell.

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

Sue, (hmmmm or whatever is your name). I heard that segment in the 6:00 hour while getting ready for my radio show, so my attention was split. I think Obama's admin passed a regulation that prohibits kids from working on the family farm. I have no idea the reason - probably because there is no handicap ramp in the pool.

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

Look at her. How fun! What on earth was she cooking?

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

I didn't know that Dr. J. And where is JMH?

"Derek Nathaniel Bell (born December 11, 1968 in Tampa, Florida) is a former Major League Baseball player. Primarily a right fielder and center fielder, Bell batted from the right side and threw with his right hand. He is 6'2" tall, and during his playing career, he weighed 215 pounds."

Porchlight

It may have been something she'd accidentally burnt, Jane, thus occasioning the photo.

Those were fun times researching the CAC project. Too bad the info didn't get the audience it should have.

Danube of Thought

"On April 20, 2006, Derek Bell was charged with felony cocaine possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, after police found a warm crack pipe in the back seat of his car during a traffic stop. He was arrested again on December 2, 2008, facing three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of failure to appear in court on another charge of possession of drug paraphernalia from earlier in the year."

Jim Ryan

Zero will also be known for dumbing down the POTUS. He has stated that we have only 2% of the world's oil and that he's going to save each family $8000 in yearly gasoline expenses. That's really stupid stuff. It's hard to call these lies, they're so stupid.

DrJ

I didn't know that Dr. J. And where is JMH?

Jane, I think you just don't remember with the torrent of information here. I've wondered about JMH too; I'll send her an email message to see how she is doing. And I'll prod her to visit once again.

Jim Ryan

"Derek Bell". You know, it does sound like one of the stoners in my high school.

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

Dr J, I can't even remember how long I've been here, but it certainly was long before Obama. Did you hear Kurtz has a sequel coming out in August.

Historical tidbit.

" In 1871, President Ulysses S. Grant appointed him Collector of the Port of New York. Arthur effectively marshalled the thousand Customs House employees under his supervision on behalf of Roscoe Conkling's Stalwart Republican machine. Honorable in his personal life and his public career, Arthur nevertheless was a firm believer in the spoils system when it came under vehement attack from reformers. He insisted upon honest administration of the Customs House, but staffed it with more employees than it needed, retaining them for their merit as party workers rather than as government officials.

In 1878 President Rutherford B. Hayes, attempting to reform the Customs House, ousted Arthur. Conkling and his followers tried unsuccessfully to win redress by fighting for Grant's renomination at the 1880 Republican Convention. They reluctantly accepted the nomination of Arthur for the vice presidency."

Next up in historical tidbits, Charles J. Guiteau.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_J._Guiteau

"As Garfield entered the station, looking forward to a vacation with his wife in Long Branch, New Jersey, Guiteau stepped forward and shot Garfield twice from behind, the second shot piercing the first lumbar vertebra but missing the spinal cord. As he surrendered to

authorities, Guiteau said: "I am a Stalwart of the Stalwarts. .. Arthur is president now!"

And what did Guiteau do for a living?

" Guiteau then obtained a law license in Chicago, based on an extremely casual bar exam. He used his money to start a law firm in Chicago based on fraudulent recommendations from virtually every prominent American family of the day. [citation needed] He was not successful. He argued only one case in court, the bulk of his business being in bill collecting. Most of his cases resulted in enraged clients and judicial criticism."

now they are out to destroy family farms:

Farm safety expert: Know what's in proposed child labor law
February 21, 2012

Print Version
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Parents of children who work on the family farm or are in agriculture education programs should thoroughly review proposed changes to child labor laws so they fully understand how the new rules could affect them, a Purdue farm safety specialist advises.

"Because the proposed rule changes are 51 pages long, I don't know that many people understand exactly what's being presented," Bill Field said. "The changes not only hold the potential for positive but also significant negative effects to youth less than 16 years old who seek employment or are currently employed in agriculture."

While the Agricultural Hazardous Occupations Order was written in an effort to protect children from dangerous situations, it could prevent many young people from working on family farms or participating in agriculture-related educational programs.

The U.S. Department of Labor on Feb. 1 temporarily shelved the legislation after complaints that it would erode the tradition of children working on their family-owned farm. Although it agreed to reinstate a "parental exemption" that would allow parents to assign on-farm duties to their children, Field said many other proposed rule changes could further restrict young people from working in agriculture.

Under the proposed changes, the "parental exemption" itself would not apply to incorporated family farms, Field noted.

"Many small, family farms are incorporated because of the tax advantages," he said. "But when a farm is incorporated, parents are considered a corporate entity and they would not be covered by the parental exemption."

Threadkiller

According to Dick Durbin, also of Illinois fame, Dual Citizens could be considered unqualified for the eligibility requirements. This is in the record of the 2004 Senate Judiciary Hearing on Natural Born Citizenship.

It was a major concern to him.

I wonder why.

Good grief. My husband grew up on a Colorado dry wheat farm. He was driving the tractor by age 7 and by age 11, he could break down and rebuild just about any piece of farm equipment so that even the neighbors would ask him to fix things. He became known as the "Fix-it Kid." He was the 2nd oldest of 5 kids and every one of them had specific farm duties they were expected to get done each day.

That's not Obama's only error: it's a common misconception that many people (or even that it was common wisdom) that the world was flat in Columbus' day, or that he would sail off the edge, as the major criticism of Columbus' plan to sail to the Far East by a Western route.

The world had commonly been accepted as round for centuries before. The major criticism was that it would be TOO FAR, which was actually correct, if the New World was not in the way, sailing across the Atlantic and Pacific would have been an impossibility for Columbus and his ships.

The Book of Job, usually accepted as the oldest book in the bible refers to the circular earth.

babygiraffes

@ jimmyk It was first postulated millenia ago, but there was doubt and mistaken beliefs for a long time after. Not until the 14th century did the belief die out completely in scientific circles. It is true most medieval scholars recognized it was spherical, but there were schools of belief that dissented. However, it was well established by 1492, that's for sure.

"I've heard that remark several times today on several different broadcasts."

It was my first reaction, and I posted it here this morning. I wonder if it will generate discussion.

I suppose there was a lot of money to be made in discoveries like this and people didn't publicize them. Just as I suppose the ancient battery they found in Baghdad was used to goldplate and siverplate base metals for profit rather than to create flashlights so when the family that knew how to build them (sail to farther places) died, the secrets did, too.

Clarice

I don't know,DoT. How can anyone look at those pictures and not think of the copters over the Embassy. And to think this was unnecessary, he built up the troops there just because the Dems kept yapping that it's were the war OUGHT to have been fought.

The estimable Leo Donofrio, March 13 2012:

"After long consideration and discussion with my family, I am saying goodbye to this blog and the law. I am retiring my law license and will be concentrating on making films, and writing music.

"There is no lawyer, politician or judge who will change the world into what God intended it to be – one family, one love. Angels are real. It’s gonna be a full on landing soon.”

Perhaps in his new career Leo will expose the fact that Mozart actually had nothing to do with Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

Sara

It has been my contention for a number of years now that the left attends schools that teach an entirely different curriculum than my school taught back in the dark ages. There are so many historical facts that they seem so ignorant about and were things I was learning in elementary school or Sunday School.
