Of course, he loves all countries equally. It would not be possible to elevate one over the others, and nothing is more elevating than Barack's love. They're each exceptional in their own way, whether the US, Burma, Zimbabwe, Cuba, Iran, or the dynamic, world-leading countries of Europe.

I apologize for putting the US first in that list.

Final line from The Audacity of Hope:

My heart is filled with love for this country.

Pat Allen

Isn't the key to love the United States for what it has given all of us - and for what it has and can do for others - not for what it has given you personally?

Ignatz

All leftists love Amerika, not for what it is, but for what they intend to make it.

narciso

Sure that's why he condemns some it has done, every single minute of every day, in practically every arena he can find.

Paul Zrimsek

Obama loves his country like Ike loved Tina.

clarice

I hope we survive this doofus in one piece.
(And then we tear apart limb from limb those journos who covered his tracks and continue to hide from the voters, as best they can, what he says and does.)

The only thing I love is my belt!

Of course Hussein bin Obama loves his countries. He's so duly proud of both Kenya and Indonesia!

United States? Nah, that's for racist, gun-toting rednecks. But we're gonna "change" them. Bring them Marxism wrapped in a smile and 24/7 Cult of Personality.

Governmetn ownership is best! Why it's only fair!

Obama's friend, Ayers loved his country too. The people not so much.

cananyonecalculatearodssluggingaveragepergirardipitchingchange

He's at, what, minus 13 in the Ras? You math majors help out us humanities slackers--what is the highest negative rating you can get? Assume his hard core 20 per cent will always give him the strongly approve, and the dummies of the middle will also have a base of 25 per cent who won't strongly approve or disapprove, that leaves only 55 per cent. If every one of those 55 per cent strongly disapprove, he'll be at a minus thirty five, hell, he's almost half way there.

LUN Tommy Smothers is apparently "melt down" mad at Penn (of Penn and Teller fame) for going on Glenn Beck.

These old hippies are in death throes, and it is starting to get on my nerves.

narciso

We joke with a bitter aftertaste, at the cluelessness of this administration. But
let us not ever forget what they want to
do to this country. this framework of organizations, personnel, political officers, that means to seize every aspect
of this country's economy and culture, while
giving all our enemies a free pass, and I get chills about it, sorry GK. he may be
the sorcerer's apprentice, but there was still a mess left in his wake

omg, Ann! If she took the belt OFF, she might look half-way normal.

Whoever that dippy stylist is, she must really hate Michelle.

Dear Michelle, Fashion Icon:

This is so wrong...

I know, bgates, I stole that from you. If you ever are around the Boston area, I'll buy you a pizza to settle your blog phrase infringement case against me! :-))

Yes, but G.Q. put her on the top 50 people in D.C, and they are never wrong

--This Is So Wrong - Of Course Obama Loves His Country (Italics Tom's)--

I think Tom has the headline wrong. Should be:

This Is So Wrong - Of Course Obama Loves His Country. (Italics mine)

Gregory Koster

Narciso, I don't blame you for feeling that way. It's just that we'll have to live through this. So why not mock and jeer at this prideful spirit? That'll sting.

It won't be long before The Once's hatred of the US starts popping out. Because:

a) he loves America for all it's given him
b) America dam sure isn't gonna be giving him the adulation and toadying he wants. Those unemployment numbers will continue to look down on him, laughing heartily as they get farther away. Ditto inflation rates. Foreclosures, up? Yup. Etc. This is that mean America, and HE'LL SHOW ALL YOU DIRTY CLINGY FOX-LOVING-PALIN-ADMIRING GUN-OWNING BASTARDS!!!! Excuse me, that megaphone got away there...

Ann, you are not showing Christian charity toward Rolo, who is working on wearing the proper Muslim headdress, but it keeps slipping down, darn it. This is what she aiming at, complete with instruction manual on how RACE MATTERS honky.

Tommy Smothers was always an unfunny douche who happened to make people briefly laugh and milked that for an entire career. I'm not sure why Penn regarded him so highly although maybe he filled an atheistic need. Anyway glad to see Penn's reaction.

The left just sinks lower and lower into the slime that spawned them.

Going Rouge - a hit piece to be released the same day as Palin's Going Rogue.

Ignatz

--Tommy Smothers was always an unfunny douche who happened to make people briefly laugh and milked that for an entire career.--

"Mom always liked you best" was good for one brief upward twitch of the lip. After about five minutes we figured out why she did and it wasn't funny anymore.

Like Rick Blaine in Casablanca, BHO is a "citizen of the world." he is to big for any one nation, he transcends them all.

that the question is being asked is indicative of the man in office.

its too bad Ear Leader doesn't love America as much as he loves himself...

Rick Ballard

Some amusing speculation as to the end of day gap down in the market. I'll take "Dimon, Blankfein &c turned off the DOW bubble machine to jerk Turbo Timmy's strings on the banker pay cuts."

That or Walmart's declaration of a Christmas season price war prior to Halloween - not the greenest of shoots.

Janet

Ignatz @ 4:44 Too funny! Poor Tommy...

malclave

Well, if "love" can be defined as "basks in the adulation of", then of course President Obama loves America.

"Ask not what your country can do for you... ask what you can do for Barack Obama."
- closing line of the original text of Obama's address to the nation's schoolchildren

WOW My first true love AKA VP Cheney is going to give a speech tonight.

Sounds a bit like the last funny routine Al Franken did on SNL. I think it was around 1981 or so.

jean: (whispering) careful, honey, don't let Sue hear ya. She thinks she had "dibs" on Cheney, but really, I do. ::grin::

Original MikeS

Obama wants to change this country; not just the government but the country. The question should be, "Does Obama love the U.S. as it is, or can we look forward to a time when for the first time in his life he really loves this country."

I suspect that Obama will love this country when we have government controlled health-care, less carbon emissions than we did in 1890, no more rich people or evil free enterprise, no more kooks clinging to their guns and bibles, no more racist police departments, and no more of those evil conservatives on TV or radio. That's the U.S. Obama will love.

centralcal

Ann, thanks for the link. Great speech! Gave me a big lump in my throat.

CHENEY DROPS A BOMBSHELL.

They left Obama his entire March Strategy Plan and the Obama folks asked them to keep it secret....

Then we find out the reason Obama wanted to keep it secret was so they could trash the Bush administration for not doing anything.

Of course the press won't cover this because we all know they are devoid of a point of view.

As one of two favorite military men, Heinrich Himmler used to say.......

Ann

Hey cc:

Yes, it is another can of Cheney whoopass and I love it.

Sibelius tried to give Rush a flu shot!

Fresh Air

On the political left, it will still be asserted that tough interrogations did no good, because this is an article of faith for them, and actual evidence is unwelcome and disregarded. President Obama himself has ruled these methods out, and when he last addressed the subject he filled the air with vague and useless platitudes. His preferred device is to suggest that we could have gotten the same information by other means. We’re invited to think so. But this ignores the hard, inconvenient truth that we did try other means and techniques...

Love that phrase. You could pretty much write that about every one of Zero's speeches. More VUP from the wimp!

PD

"Mom always liked you best" was good for one brief upward twitch of the lip. After about five minutes we figured out why she did and it wasn't funny anymore.

He so deserved that chicken on a leash, is that what you're saying? :-)

Going Rogue versus Going Rouge: I'm looking forward to seeing the comparative sales figures.

Wow Ann, thanks for the link to Cheney's speech.

From Ann's link.

"It’s time for President Obama to make good on his promise. The White House must stop dithering while America’s armed forces are in danger.

Make no mistake, signals of indecision out of Washington hurt our allies and embolden our adversaries. Waffling, while our troops on the ground face an emboldened enemy, endangers them and hurts our cause."


President Waffle-Dither votes "Present".

Tommy Smothers has always been a political idiot, but to say he isn't talented is unfair. He is a talented musician, writer, producer, winery owner, and yoyo aficionado.

Boy they called out the heavy artillery, but it's an anthology of bitter people, that never sells well, I did get a little
'frisson' (that's french for tingle ?)from that SNL sketch where she threatened to pull NBC's license. Not that she would ever do it

I generally like to keep good cheer with the Python, and Princess Bride references,
and Office Space if there is time left over, but that Grathwohl tape, gave me some pause.

PD

Maybe that's how our enemies abroad see our President: A man capable only of handling a chicken on a leash.

Rick Ballard

Careful, Mr Uk. Prince Obamlet's response is most likely to follow the precepts ingrained by constant reference to his What Would Mao Do? bracelet. He obviously lacks Æthelred's backbone and any decision taken will only be as good as his word. IOW - no American is safe while he sits in the Oval Office but pushing him to do anything (aside from the bodkin bit) is more likely to have a negative rather than a positive result.

I'm afraid that Bibi, Sarko and Angela are going to have to pick up the slack until we elect an American President.

Boy, those are some real heavyweights. They've got the one who wrote the Vagina Monologues, pottymouth Amanda Marcotte, who was fired by John Edwards, IIRC. Obsessive Bill Clinton apologist Joe Conasan, and that idiot who covers the Supreme Court for Slate (the one who cried when Alito was nominated). Wow! It's like half the Journ-O-List with one-fourth of the calories. Feminist jerks, commie assholes and girly-men. Yep, that's about the state of the Fourth Estate these days.

Fresh Air

Just for you, CH. A comedy classic by Wuzzadem on Marcotte.

Peter,

Don't tell anyone but Pelosi and Feinstein have bleached San Francisco until it's just as white as Portland. They had to drive off about 15% of the black population over the past ten years to do it but they managed it - progressively.

Awesome FA; I feel that it's only fitting that I respond with a deranged whore LUN of my own. Yes it's sports related but I had to reciprocate with something in a pinch...

susanne

pops,
Thanks for the update about Sibelius' eye.
My husband asked me if I knew what was up with her eye (he pointed out it was her LEFT eye, the one she views the world through). I'm glad it sounds relatively minor.
Even so, I'm not so sure she didn't have surgery to have that evil eye inserted....

More proof there is something wrong with people in the TV business. Maybe Phillips can ask David Letterman how to handle his videotaped confession.

The cover portrait on the faux book is better than that of the memoir. She is 'deep in their noggin' as Miller said, although his latest offering was very conventional,

Speaking of flu shots, how can we find out if congress received H1N1 flu shots? Just thinking if they get shots before the public, maybe Jane could use it to exploit them with her You Too campaign.

narciso, for your birthday Mr. PUK, has indicated he's willing to offer you a piece of our sharpened pike business at a considerable discount.Because we like you. We really like you.

Flodigarry

While Obama is looking to redistribute the wealth, you can be sure he'll hang on to whatever he has acquired to date from his books, graft, baksheesh, whatever; come hell or high water.

Re "Going Rouge" - you can be sure that the Big Zero will go postal if Sarah sells more than he has with his books, so any distraction/diversion of revenue with competing/misleading books is a plus.

BTW - Obama sucks monkey nuts, big time - so I guess that makes him "Teabagger in Chief". Since he has no balls, he always likes to put himself in a position to admire the balls of his betters (so long as they have the right politics that is)

Ann

I'm still depressed.

Clarice, you are usually the stalwart optimist. What's up?

It is really a bad sign when you and RUSH are depressed at the same time.
