Does anyone here harbor any doubts that this pathetic little weasel would have fundraised the evening of 9/11?

If so, you'll have to convince me, because I don't doubt it at all.

If 404 is having a meltdown, how can you tell?

#TheBearIsASociopath

LOL and, unfortunately. absolutely true. What so many mistook as BOzo being "cool" was actually BOzo the uber-narcissist's total lack of empathy.

Patriot4Freedom

Now playing nightly at the White House: "Clueless."

NK(withnewsoftware)

"who the frack fires a SAM into the air so close to a major urban area, at 33,000 feet,"

Putin does. ragtag 'rebels' own and aim that sweet piece of hardware? Russian Military or Intel aimed and pulled the trigger. Putin just backed up his Wednesday fighting words with action.

Captain Hate

I think we all realized it at some point mid to late 2008; that 404 was a damaged individual from being abandoned by both parents, bullied while he was growing up (for lack of a better term) and given to creating fantasies and flat out lying.

MarkO

I suppose we should take some comfort in the fact that most Americans now realize he's a fraud.

After he's out, I wonder what we will learn about his birth, family, education and the killing of bin Laden.

NK(withnewsoftware)

"given to creating fantasies and flat out lying."

and never, ever being called on it. The whole fucking Prog world enabled him his whole life, covered for his lies, then foisted him on the LIVs during the 2008 meltdown.

Beasts of England

In September of '08, Bush was scheduled to attend a fundraiser at a friend's house for another of our friends who was running for Congress. The day before the event - which a few hundred folks had paid several grand each to attend - the market tanked and Bush promptly cancelled.

Back in those days, fundraising in the midst of a crisis or possible 'terrible tragedy' was considered in poor taste. And there wasn't a damned thing Bush could do in DC that he couldn't do from the road or later that evening, but it just wasn't the right time to fundraise. The rules of decorum don't apply to Teh First Feckless Narcissist.

On a positive note, after he cancelled, he sent Cheney - who absolutely kicked ass, and we all enjoyed his speech. GWB briefly dialed-in to the event over a secure line and, over the speakerphone, had these first words: 'Howdy, y'all!' That brought down the house! :)

hit and run

Are the cable channels covering the IDF Gaza Strip operation?

If not, it's likely Obama doesn't even know about it yet.

Captain Hate

Oh yes, NK, he's had plenty of enablers every step of the way. Some of those enablers are lying to themselves right now about how many people in the country want to be rid of him, the sooner the better. I don't think the MFM will ever get their credibility back. I just hope that a future non-donk President has the nads to point that out whenever a pointed question is posed.

Buckeye

Time for Mitch Rapp to put a bullet in Putin's head. Not that Barry would have the balls to make the call.

Extraneus

Meanwhile, in the Gaza Strip, it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.

It certainly could be, if the Israelis don't turn the place into a parking lot.

NK(withnewsoftware)

CaptH-- you're too polite there. Many of his enablers are committed anti-american evildoers, starting with Bill Ayers, and the IranianFerret, some are merely fools, like Prof. Tribe. The truly evil ones, mostly in the ChiTown Prog mafia have to be called out and exposed publicly.

Captain Hate

First of all, don't get me started on fundraisers by either party. Now that I have that out of the way, GWB, late in his second term iirc, was going to one in Chagrin Falls, a suburb which is thick with the spawn of Rockefeller. On the way to and from there were a number of people out waving to him as his motorcade went through, including an elderly woman whose birthday it was sitting on a couch on the tree lawn. As the Pres's limo went past it suddenly stopped, backed up and GWB got out, sat down on the couch, put his arm around her and wished her a happy birthday and chatted for a couple minutes, looking as glad to be there as if he had been her son.

As much as his policies infuriated me, I can't stay mad at a person who does that.

NK(withnewsoftware)

You're a good man CaptH

MarkO

Were I Juan Williams, I would tell Murdock that I would no longer take such stupid positions, irrespective of the money paid me to do so.

Wait! What? He's serious?

And so was Dubya---he had a bit of mensch in him.

The families of the 295 innocent victims aboard the downed airliner deserve to have their loved ones' remains recovered.

When will oBOzo demand that Putin intervene with the pro-Russian separatists to secure the scene and guarantee U.S. access to the crash site?

Beasts of England

Is that term in the JOM Wiki, MarkO, or should I consult the Urban Dictionary?

Rob Crawford

Obama will demand lube and a reach-around.

Putin will do neither.

Well, him and Borodin too.

Extraneus

So nobody else was flying over Ukraine, or at least this part of "Ukraine," except Malaysian Airlines?

Today's actions should leave no doubt as to who are the good and bad guys in Ukraine, which was obvious, I believe, to all except the "crazy Ivans" who were dispatched to Wretchard and other sites.

And there's more! militias invade Tripoli. They shot up the airport as well.

Last night was a failed attempt on the airport at Kabul, with mortars and maniacs but the security forces had them surrounded in about 30 minutes. Libya is not so lucky.

BOE,

Check Google, not the Law School section, but the general information.

I understand the black (actually Orange) box was retreived and is in MOSCOW! How about those red aoples?

Yes, ext, I'm waiting for the Tarhole to fill us in on how that airspace was regarded by the flyboys.

Beasts of England

He's scheduled for a 16-day vacay, P4F - he can't be interrupted for possible tragedies...

Jack is Back!

Ex,

Lufthansa for one uses the same skyway. Probably most lines do. Old adage in flying is the shortest distance between twio points is a curve,

peter

Maybe Obama was using the classic definition of tragedy, that is the downfall of the protagonist brought about by his own flaw,,,,nah, he's just ain't that smart.

Skoot

I keep thinking of Susie the bear in Hotel New Hampshire. 404 would fit right in with those mental cases.

And RIP Johnny. Nobody got tone on slide like that. Barbed wire. Except maybe Elmore.

maryrose

CH;
I agree about President Bush. When in Chagrin falls he also stopped at the mom and pop "Popcorn Shoppe" like a regular person. His bike riding with wounded vets just touches my heart.
Obama has gotten a pass his whole life. He is now incapable of handling any type of crisis situation on his own. his coping skills have been crippledby dependence on others. No wonder Moochelle is sick of him. ValJar seems a better match for him.

maryrose

I would love any spot for a JOM reunion. I like camping, I'm 5 hours from Indianapolis, I can fly to Florida or Texas and I appreciate all offers.Porch I think 2015 or 2016 would be fine especially if 2014 goes our way and the Dems start to implode in late 2015.

Beasts of England

Arrested development is an apt assessment, maryrose. Stuck in the fifth grade.

maryrose

Obama's statement "So Sue Me" is so fifth grade.
Biden's gaffe about "no change" happening was very telling yesterday. I am sure he is disappointed as well. At this point I can stomach Biden more than Obama. I wish Obama would crack and get off the stage. Unfortunately ValJar is not going to let that happen.

narciso

Would a plane fly that far across, nonstop, KLM seemed to as of 2011.

Buford Gooch

Btfsplk, according to Al Capp, was pronounced by blowing a raspberry.

narc, Now you know why Dubai has replaced Heathrow as largest airport in terms of International operations.

MarkO

Good work, hit.

I may have stumbled on the key to all things Obama.

Rick B

What does Putin net by mass murder by missile? I don't doubt he would order it, I just don't see the potential gain from doing so.

Ignatz Ratzkiwaski

--What does Putin net by mass murder by missile?--

Another kick to whatever teeth Barry has left?

MarkO

When do we read that someone on the plane knew what had happened to the other Malaysian airplane and had to be killed?

Stephanie

2015? 2016? I thought y'all were talking this fall. :( We need to start em ASAP so they can become annual events.

I'd like to meet you, too, DoT.

It's always fun to see if the mental image matches the IRL one. I want to meet everyone.

Only time I got talked into going camping we were at Unicoi State Park and the daughter was 4 months old and on a heart and breathing monitor (this was before her cleft palate surgery). The monitor went off in the middle of the night and the whole campsite woke up. We packed early and snuch the hell out of there.

The church used to go camping for the 4th and we'd go and set up a tent and swim, hike and do the campfire stuff, then the daughter and I would jump in the car, come home and get in bed and the hubs and the son would stay and rough it. I'd swing by McD's in the morning and grab some breakfast on the way back to the campsite and watch the others struggle with camp stoves and munch on my Sausage and Biscuit and giggle.

Simpsonwood is about 15 miles away, so it was not a big deal. The UMC is selling Simpsonwood to a developer now.

Ignatz Ratzkiwaski

With Barry all the rest of us are stuck in Chagrin Falls.
That's almost as bad as Lodi.

Thank you, Buford, for the pronunciation guidance! I couldn't come up with anything by "sounding it out."

'It Looks Like It May Be A Terrible Tragedy'

When you think about it, isn't this really the story of Obama?

Captain Hate

according to Al Capp

Speaking of deceased cartoonists, the world has become Hatlo's Hell under 404.

Thomas Collins

Jane and jimmyk and I took time for some fun socializing (along with food and spirits) in Kendall Square in Cambridge today. Noone attacked us, so the Cantabridgians must not have heard some of our comments about prog politicians!

narciso

Girkin, that's his real name, seems to have expanded the zachista, the Russian search and destroy, skyward, and that's apparently how he instructed his associates to behave,

narciso

I see how that is now, Jib,

Exasperated

To paraphrase the great MaHaRushtie, even when Democrats have altruistic and the best of intentions, they might as well flip a coin to decide what to do, and, even then, they will invariably muck it up and make a bad situation even worse, because none of them, not one of them has the moral compass that guides the rest of us in our decisions, examples of which are extremely irresponsible decisions rendered by liberal activist judges.

Threadkiller

There is one thing about him that is not a lie.

maryrose

Soylent Red:
So true. It has been an unspeakable tragedy -these last 5 and three-fourths years.
Exasperated-Your moral compass comment is spot on. It is why Clinton's perverted behavior was acceptable and excused. You have to have a conscience to be a good person.

GMax

I don't totally discount Putin fingerprints being on this. Zero had just announced his sanctions, and maybe it was a way to announce the "FU, strong message to follow."

The Russians didn't take many prisoners in WW 2 either...

maryrose

Iggy:
In reality Chagrin Falls is actually quite a lovely place with a bad name .

Putin is a former KGB agent-that's all I have to say about that.

Henry, Gus did you see this? www.mindingthecampus.com/2014/07/an-amazing-diversity-plan-at-madison/

Not KGB or FSB but rather Tedkoski Mackinovich Amateur Hour,

It was a Russian made and supplied BUK but I have a hard time believing it was Russia but rather their Ukrainian surrogates,

However, this would be a game changer for Putin if we had a POTUS other than BOzo.

peter

great to hear about the Tom Collins-Jane-jimmyk meetup. What is a Cantabridgian by the way?

narciso

cambridge grad, peter, it is in the nature of a zachista, that you fire indiscriminately

Skoot

Let me see if I got this straight.

Putin handed top shelf missile batteries to a bunch of jackasses with no command, no doubt swilling cheap vodka "on duty", and 23 Americans end up murdered.

Until daddy returns from his Kay-Roooooing -- I heard on the radio a short time ago that the European carriers, KLM, Lufthansa and others) have been using that same route right along, and that only the American commercial lines had been observing the NOTAM warning that was issued.

Do the residents of Chagrin Falls pronounce it "shah-GRIN or in some other fashion? I wish I lived there.

henry

Clarice,

Wow! I'm glad my niece just graduated. Passed it on to the local talk radio people.

Well, when your onscreen, professional moniker is "Krystal Ball", the chance that you're going to be a magnet for that type of thing approaches one.

And with Porch as our Travel Advisor, I'm assuming that our only (self-revealed) cage dancer will be our Social Chairperson? I'll volunteer to be our Food and Beverage Coordinator.

rse

GMax said basically what I told Red, Rick. Maybe Putin did not know and they have these weapons in the hands of people who do not know the difference between cargo planes and jets at high altitude.

But didn't the tyrants in the world get an even further measure of bo today?

Hard to imagine ven a WTC type tragedy reaching beyond the narcissim and desire to force findamental change and just enjoy the incredible perks.

Doesn't Putin know FOR SURE he is safe with virtually any behavior?

Thomas Collins

Denizen of Cambridge, peter. I think I spelled it incorrectly.. I believe it should be Cantabrigian (no letter d).

Captain Hate

Do the residents of Chagrin Falls pronounce it "shah-GRIN or in some other fashion? I wish I lived there.

Correct. It's a nice place; a person could do a lot worse. I've done a lot worse. One of Mrs H's photographs resided there for about a month.

If maryrose checks in, I heard after the Todd Allyn show that there's supposed to be a protest against illegal immigration tomorrow in Chardon from 11 to 1. After seeing this, I think I'll attend:

What Madison is pushing is part of the Democracy in Education project. Not new, but coming now and not just at Madison.

The report that is in is in Chapter 5 of the book. Originally written about 2002 and updated in 2011 or so. Really remember that second date from checking footnotes and then physically pulling hard copies to check.

Yes, it's a plan. A bad one that's all about equity of credentials.

Miss Marple

Back from the auction. Got a pre-war Lionel #318 standard gauge train with engine, 5 cars, track, transformer, and portions of original box. I should make a good profit on it.

Stepahie: I am with you on camping. I might be able to tolerate cabins although I have an aversion to sleeping with others inthe room, as I am paranoid that I will snore or talk in my sleep.

Also, my daughter was also a cleft palate. We were fortunate to have a surgeon who pioneered a new way of reconstructing the lip, so although her nose is a bit assymetrical, she doesn't have the disfigurement of earlier generations. Three surgeries, major dental work, and speech therapy over a period of 5 years.

It was a great afternoon with Jimmy and TC. I'm surprised I made it home since for some reason my nav system decided I refused to pay tolls and took me to Medford before I got my Scout to work and get me out of the inner city. About 20 extra miles I suspect. If I didn't have such a heavy foot I wouldn't be home for a long time still.

I really really enjoy getting to meet people I know and like so much. And I love spending the afternoon hearing about people they have met and I haven't. No one is safe!

That link is hysterical!

jimmyk is the schizz. I'll bet it was a lot of fun.

MessNBC doing as much vetting as they did 404. Very professional operation imo.
