If Obama had acted like a putative woman and formed a coalition within the first week or two to solve the Gulf Oil Leak, no one would have complained. The problem is that he waited 56 days to do anything at all.

Oh, good god, Parker is embarassing herself again, I know what a surprise. It is quite clear how there would be plenty of women who would do a much better job at fixing this mess, because they know debating an oil slick proves no answer, specially when there are answers available, I speak not only of who

BHO does prefer the company of men although he's hardly a man's man. He just likes men and has his whole life. He made a brief foray to pick up a wife in Chicago but that was politics.

I made an amusing (I hope) video called Barack Obama is a Male Chauvinist recently. It's a little bit tongue in cheek but there are certain elements of truth to it.

Jane says obamasucks

Hillary can run in 2012 on a promise to put a man back in the White House.

I just had to repeat that. If Obama is now a woman I'm tempted to change my gender. Is that covered under Obamacare?

Tom ,it's okay it's just counter intelligence. They told you could write what you wanted and, no, your not a Russian spy.

The red head's dad worked in Kenya as a 'diplomat'(not spy). It's all families like Plame's and Joe's(NSA /'diplomat'). O sure was mean. He got even and figured it out for himself and everything.


What happened to Clarice, she didn't go to the G20?

Kathleen Parker, June 30, 2010:

If Bill Clinton was our first black president, as Toni Morrison once proclaimed, then Barack Obama may be our first woman president.

http://www.newsweek.com/2008/02/25/the-first-woman-president.html>Newsweek, February 26, 2008:

Obama is a female candidate for president in the same way that Bill Clinton was the first black president.

Tom - I'm glad you tackled this Parker column. I looked at it this morning, and found it baffling. I was beginning to think that there was a secret message in it somewhere, that it should be read backwards or something.

(And I had other things to do. I figure Patty Murray is at least partly my responsibility. And, now that I think about it, I realize that she and Parker share some characteristics.)

"Obama's speech featured 13 percent passive-voice constructions, the highest level measured in any major presidential address this century"

Well, of course. Obama's frequent use of passive speech constructions is "voting present" in a communicative sense. I'll bet His Majesty drives professors--even the ones who voted for him--in college Communications and Poli-Sci departments absolutely up the wall with his utter inability to take concrete stands on anything.

“LeBron James is coming back and Lee is going to Washington,” he said, according to a pool report from the event.

Sorry,Captain Hate.

Captain Hate

When Obama played in high school, he joined the school team, but he sat on the bench. For a private school. In Hawaii

Yes, but he organized his community of fellow splinter-gatherers to petition the coach for more playing time. The coach probably thought "WTF; I think we'll use these dweebs as cannon-fodder for the starters to learn in practice how to make a bunch of floppers pay the price for being such douches".

Even if he didn't secure any extra playing time it was probably more successful than the Annenberg Challenge.

A caveat: it is possible that Joe is right about LeBron staying. Of course,that'd be a blind nut finding a squirrel situation ... literally ... God love ya.

She will? Christ, Tom, you make it sound like a bad break I wasn't killed.

In the same sense that Toni Morrison claimed Bill Clinton was our first black president, Barack Obama could be thought of as another groundbreaker: our first female president.

--Ralph Alter, "Our First Female President?," American Thinker, June 5, 2009

Obama is a female candidate for president in the same way that Bill Clinton was the first black president.

It was Toni Morrison who first had the insight.

--Martin Linsky, "The First Woman President?," Newsweek, February 26, 2008

Obama ... offers a compelling blend of masculine and feminine. Bill Clinton, who was famously dubbed America's first black president, provides a useful typecasting precedent.

It's a stupid meme, when Morrison coined it, and Chris Rock adapted it as a rationale for his pecadillos, it's downright insulting when applied to Obama, who is vacillating and stubborn at once.

President Bush - First Pitch


· 2-Seam Fastball. Will cut down-and away. The typical strikeout pitch.
· Power-T position before the throw. Generates hip drive for max. velocity.
· Eyes on the target.
· Pitching hand cocked back so batter can’t see ball during delivery.
· Business slacks. He ain’t here to play, hes gonna break the catchers hand.

ASSESSMENT
Strike three – batter looking. Fastball looked inside coming towards plate then broke away on the inside corner

President Obama – First Pitch


· Palm ball. Comes in slow and doesn’t move.
· No Power-T. Right hand hanging down towards dirt.
· Eyes and mouth show fear that a batter will actually be in there to knock it 603 feet..
· Pitching hand open so batter can see ball during delivery.
· Blue jeans? When they asked him to throw out the first pitch he wrote a speech.

ASSESSMENT
This ball will be hit so far it will need a flight attendant

The problem is, number one, it's hard to argue sometimes, things woulda been a lot worse. Right? So people kinda say "yeah but unemployment's still at 9.6". Yes but it's not 12 or 13 . . . or 15. People say "well, you know, uh, the stock market didn't fully recover". Yeah but it's recovered more than people expected last year.

So part of the challenge in delivering this message about all that the recovery act accomplished is that things are still tough. But they just aren't as bad as they could have been, they could have been a catastrophe."

http://article.nationalreview.com/356722/michelle-obama-says-amen/byron-york>Well...

Walking onstage to chants of "Yes, we can!" and "Fired up — ready to go!" [Michelle Obama] quickly gets to the heart of her message: There are forces out there who are trying to take away everything Barack has worked for. They — she doesn't mention anyone in particular ... are trying to deny Obama the opportunity to move America to the mountaintop of hope. And they must be stopped.

"We've learned that we're still living in a time and in a nation where the bar is set, right?" she tells the crowd.

"That's right."

"They tell you all you need to do is do these things and you'll get to the bar — "

"Uh-huh."

"So you go about the business of doing those things — "

"Yes — "

"...and you're struggling ... you're reaching out for the bar, and then what happens?"

"They hold you to the bar you set yourself!"

"They raise the... Wait. What? No, they..."

"Hold you to the bar you set yourself!"

"No. They raise the bar. Shift it to the side. Keep it just out of reach."

"No! Obama set the bar! He promised all these wonderful benefits from the stimulus bill that never happened."

"Well then we're lowering it dammit! We're lowering the bar. Deal with it."

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20100630/ennew_afp/entertainmentindonesiausfilmobama_20100630160129>Well there you go:

JAKARTA (AFP) – A film about US President Barack Obama's childhood days in Indonesia made its debut in Jakarta on Wednesday, promising a very different perspective on the man in the White House.

"Obama Anak Menteng" or "Obama the Menteng Kid", is set in the upscale Jakarta neighbourhood of Menteng, where Obama lived from 1967 to 1971 with his mother and Indonesian stepfather.

"Viewers, especially Westerners, will see a different world. They'll see Obama eating chicken satay, not hamburgers. They'll see his neighbours and friends wearing chequered sarongs and Muslim caps," he told AFP.

And hey,it's a movie right? You can expect this:

Based on his interviews with Obama's surviving neighbours and friends in the Indonesian capital, Dematra claims the film is "60 percent fact and 40 percent fiction".

In fact,that's a higher ratio of fact to fiction than his real life.

And bringing things around to the topic of the post...speaking of "why couldn't he just be a wimp?"

Clips available on the Internet show "little Barry" learning to box with his stepfather after getting into a shoolyard fight, but ultimately learning to resolve conflicts through means other than violence.
...
"We have to stick together to achieve our goals and resolve our problems and fights," Barry later tells his friends.

Give that boy a Peace Prize!

Make your plans now,international release set for September. Fun for the whole family.
