"Hope, Change and..."

"...kiss my ass you evil neocons."

RELATED: Whatever happened to critical thinking?

What if a Republican president submitted for cabinet confirmation...

1. A Treasury Secretary with supervisory powers over the IRS who failed to report and pay taxes on over $100,000 in personal income?

2. A Commerce Secretary who had to withdraw because of an investigation into "pay to play" allegations in the state where he sits as governor?

3. A Secretary of Transportation revealed to be the king of earmarks while in Congress?

I felt so proud yesterday that I dusted the snow off my lawn jockey at the end of the drive.

I suppose you find greyburr's comments funny?

You've got the wrong end of the stick buddy. Except you and your racists pals, everyone else is celebrating the end of Bush and the beginning of Obama.

Luckily no one cares about the frustrations of middle aged white racists. You're good for a daily chuckle though.

Remember this, we are laughing AT you, not with you.

"cc-nonymous says... you and your racists pals"

my pal? i have no more control over his asininity than i do yours.

and, fyi... greyburr and i have gone head-to-head over this same sort of shit before.

i thought he had learned his lesson...

"Sorry,one bridge too far, I apologise & It won't happen again.Slap appreciated, Greyburr."

but apparently he didn't figure it out... so yes... he's done here from now on... just like "liberal supporter".

only an idiot thinks this is about about skin pigmentation. it's about a freshman senator who, instead of using his conscience... voted "present" a couple of hundred times.

it's about media bias triumphing over substance.

and it's about the fuzzy-bunny left... whose immediate reaction to any situation is to start screaming "racist".

and you nonny... you're simply pathetic.

"it's about media bias triumphing over substance."

As neo says that is why we don't think much of Obama. There are a lot of other black people of substance we would love to see become president: but not because they are black.

The fact that Obama is half black seems to be the one sole reason everyone is so "ra ra" behind this guy, it certainly cannot be his record which is mediocre at best.

Therefore the racist and condescending people are folks like you, nonny. (And actually it is you, nonny, who has made most of the racist remarks around here. I have yet to hear neo make racist comments, if you'd like to point them out...)

mrs neo asked me the other day... "shouldn't somebody maybe mention obama's mom?"

i mean... is this really all about his pigmentation... or does saint barack's "upbringing" maybe have something to do with his success in life?

apparently nonny has already made up his tiny mind.

good grief.

Indeed neo.

It cannot be Obama's record that people are so excited about, or even his future plans which seem to be an extension of the Bush financial mismanagement, where the US is going to go even more into massive debt, or even the foreign policy that seems Bush III.

In fact the only thing as far as I can tell that he will do differently is to close down Guantanamo. Presumably they will just be moving the prisoners elsewhere from what he says, kind of spreading them around I guess.

Closing down Guantanamo may actually be a disaster now that the thing is running very smoothly, I expect to hear real stories of prisoner abuse when they try and create a whole new system... like the old system but newer as far as I can tell.

How does that Pink Floyd song go: Here's the new guy much like the old guy...

Nonny? What are you beyond an online alias? You're no more real than me.

Anonymous..right back at you..anyone who elects a man based on the colour of his skin, and not his accomplishments, is being racist.Believe me, i laugh as hard at people like you who think they are being 'progressive' as i do those who deny advancement based on skin tone.

I'll wager you are white yourself, and somehow see electing a black man more soothing for your sole , what being born a natural cultural imperialist and racist.

I'll bet some of your best friends are black too.

Want your pacifier back?

Has O heard that taliban terrorist camps are infested with the plague and they are dying. By sending these guys back is he sending them back to die. What if they don't want to go back to caves, killing, rats, poor food and no prayer mats.
As for Khdar, he is no longer that baby faced kid, look at a recent picture.
Will Layton/Olivia be prepared to let this killer live with them and pay his expenses. Didn't think so.
And any lawyer who tries to defend him and sue the govt should be disbarred and sent to Iran or someplace where terrorists are appreciated.

TangoJuliertte sez:

Excerpt from The Inaugural Address. "Pick yourself up. Brush yourself off." Somewhat plagiarized I should think.

The rest of the song's chorus finishes with the phrase "and start all over again."

Done by Sinatra in 59 / JFK 1960 campaign "almost"
theme song. Also done by Diana Krall/Pink floyd / Laverne & Shirley etc. etc. etc. and any number of other songsters.

The "hit tune" PICK YOURSELF UP
From the Film: Swing Time 1936
(Lyrics by: Dorothy Fields / Music by: Jerome Kern)
Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers

.................

(He)
Please teacher, teach me something,
Nice teacher, teach me something.
I'm as awkward as a camel, that's not the worst,
My two feet haven't met yet,
But I'll be teacher's pet yet,
'Cause I'm gonna learn to dance or burst.

(She)
Nothing's impossible I have found,
For when my chin is on the ground,
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off,
Start All over again.

Don't lose your confidence if you slip,
Be grateful for a pleasant trip,
And pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again.

Work like a soul inspired,
Till the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son!

Will you remember the famous men,
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath,
Pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again.

(He)
I'll get some self assurance
If your endurance is great.
I'll learn by easy stages
If you're courageous and wait.

To feel the strength I want to,
I must hang on to your hand,
Maybe by the time I'm fifty
I'll get up and do a nifty.

(Both)
Nothing's impossible I have found,
For when my chin is on the ground,
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off,
Start all over again.

Don't lose your confidence if you slip,
Be grateful for a pleasant trip,
And pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again.

Work like a soul inspired,
Till the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son!

Will you remember the famous men,
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath,
Pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again.

.................

HOPE that the voting melons don't catch on to our plethora of plagiarisms, and our paucity of originalty.

FEAR that we might get caught out.
................

I note too that our very own "Michael" will be borrowing Barry's magic touchstone words, a copuple of which I post above, with my own interpretations.

Does this mean that all of "Michael's" supporters and/or detractors are to now feel obliged to don one white glove whenever "Michael" makes an appearance.

I'm guessing here, but I suspect that "Michael's" real name might be something like "Mykhail" or "Mykhaiylo." Mebbe not.

Always better for the career to try to pass for white, right "Michael?"

tj

t.e.&o.e.

and NONNY : maybe greyburr's lawn jockey might be a wee Irish gnome, a winning rider in the Irish Sweepstakes. Quit jumping to silly concl;usions which seem to be based on nothing more than transeferance of one's own racist feelings.

Then again - I may be quite wrong here, as well.

"maryt says... What if they don't want to go back to caves, killing, rats, poor food and no prayer mats."

obviously, no one is gonna enjoy being a prisoner of war... but the fact is, for a lot of these guys, for the first time in their lives they're getting regular medical and dental care and 3 square meals a day.

ironically... in a physical sense, these may be the very best days of their lives... 'cos back in afghanistan they'd be slowly dying as they waited their turn to go blow themselves up in some godforsaken village market.

they wanted to be bigtime jihadis... they gotta take the consequences.

and anyway, if you're a devout muslim... it's all "allah's will" anyway.

of course, if obama decides to turn them loose, i'm sure they'll all repent and go home and live happily ever after.
