“The president has never created a job. He’s never even had a real job, for God’s sake.”
– U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, stating that President Obama is poorly-equipped to handle the nation’s economic problems.
This, of course, comes from someone whose single career goal is to defeat Obama in this year’s presidential elections, as opposed to – you know – helping create jobs in America.
“He has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn’t be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S. he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago.”
For the record, Sununu was born in Havana, Cuba.
“We know that some people have expressed concerns about one of our humor cards that references President Obama and tea parties. That line of cards has successfully poked fun at both sides of the political debate for many years. It is never our intent to offend anyone. We apologize if anyone was offended.”
– Hallmark, in a statement after some Tea Party advocates expressed outrage at a recent Hallmark graduation card.
You mean to tell me that the same band of loud-mouthed bigots got their feelings hurt over a greeting card? Altogether now – who cares?!
“Let’s be clear. Not only are we digging out of a hole that is 9 million jobs deep; we are digging out of an entire decade where 6 million jobs left our shores.”
– President Obama, in a speech in Cleveland last week.
Well, I’ll be damned! Do I detect some back bone growing inside that man?
“That’s possible. Or the other option would be I would ask all the other candidates, including the president, maybe to submit a certified copy of their birth certificate. But I don’t want to do that.”
– Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, on the likelihood that President Obama won’t be on the ballot in Arizona this November, if the state of Hawaii doesn’t provide absolute proof the president was born there.
Here we go again! The assholes who comprise the self-righteous “birther” movement just won’t let that go and turn their attention to real issues like, you know, the economy, the war in Afghanistan, education, etc. Bennett declares he’s not a “birther,” but still doesn’t seem to be satisfied with the long-form birth certificate that was released last year.
