This was copied from something brought to my attention by a young friend of mine.
The dateline should be 2013 not 2913.
Well the most obvious thing about the blog is that you did not write it. Verbal skills and all the rest that is lacking in your cold heart is clearly visible to all.
This is delusional conservatism that empowers malcontents such as yourself to open your mouth and stick your foot in it.
Seriously TOT? There are no words. And I will not even dignify this with any of my time or energy. You have your right to spew this stuff. I have the right, however, to find it insane.
Now excuse me while I enjoy this beautiful day while I watch my President, Barack Obama, be inaugurated for a second term.
Is that today? Oh, well....I'll enjoy the AFC and NFC championship games instead. GO FALCONS....and go Ravens (now that would give the people in the Washington, D.C. area something REALLY to cheer about!).
....and then again, perhaps I WILL watch the inauguration. There appears to be some question about who will be sworn in as President:
seb, I meant to say take oath of office. Inauguration is tommorow. on the something to REALLY cheer about thing. Over half the Nation would disagree. enjoy your game Seb.
Im sure you will. Kind of like the first time Romney introduced the co-liar Paul Ryan to the Nation calling him the "next President of the United States". who cares?
Let's not get into a debate on "gaffes," froggy, you would lose. Biden is King of Gaffes. Plus - why change the subject? You're the one who said:
"...excuse me while I enjoy this beautiful day while I watch my President, Barack Obama, be inaugurated for a second term."
which more than suggests that you intended to spend THIS beautiful day (as in TODAY0 watching the inauguration.
If the inauguration is really tomorrow, that would count as a "gaffe" in and of itself, wouldn't it?
...and actually inauguration day IS today, but since it's a Sunday they're holding the public swearing-in tomorrow:
So you were correct the first time, no?
...and now that President Obama has taken the oath today - and will again tomorrow - he will tie Franklin Roosevelt's record of having been sworn in FOUR times due to Chief Justice Roberts' "gaffe" in 2009:
(and for those who missed today's private swearing-in ceremony, here the video:)
....but never fear - we all "gaffe" every now and then. But I'm glad to see that my President is actually Barack Obama, and not Joe Biden. I would be enjoying the games a hell-of-a-lot less if it were the other way around....
(...and I "gaffed" by posting the video twice....)
Here a gaffe, there a gaffe, everywhere a gaffe, gaffe...
I like you both Froggy and Sebe. Y'all just don't let this little dust up go ballistic. I hate it when my blogging friends fight.
But, Tot's cut and paste hate blog is the real infraction here.
Now that TOT is coming into his own, so to speak, here on this blog site I have reconsidered my stance on guns. I truly think he has demonstrated that he is not entitled to gun ownership. I think the Feds need to go to his trailer immediately and remove all the weapons hidden in his wheeled home, those on view in his gun cabinet, and the scoped rifle he has hidden between the wall paneling in the room where he sleeps on his cot.
They should confiscate his pellet gun also, that is in the backyard leaning against his outhouse.
I won’t be able to see it tomorrow because of work. January 20th 2009 I got in trouble for watching at work, not this time. I only wish that Americans that voted for him could be critical of him when he is wrong and support him when he’s right. Tomorrow he will swear to uphold and defend the constitution and a good start would be for him to get on Harry Reid to pass a budget in the Senate instead of the continuing resolutions which allows them to spend without transparency. Barack Hussein Obama is my President too and so was George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, etc, etc, etc.
I suspect froggy knows I was just "funnin'." (I would have been surprised not to get a reaction from somebody from my 12:07 comment.) Actually, my intent here was twofold:
*The blogs seemed a little slow today, so I thought I'd inject some controversy; and
*I was trying to change the subject from "pound on TOT" to "pound on me."
How'd I do?
Well Funk, with your skilled qualities of research, which I greatly respect, it will be on some site you will be able to access and view after work.
Tell me who your boss is and I will put him or her on the list I keep with Tot's name on it.
Out of respect for you I will give you this: I think BHO needs to befriend more Republicans and some Dems about gun control rather than sticking them in the eye. You don't get things done in Washington or anywhere doing that to people. That action alone alienates even moderates in the Republican party and 2nd amendment Democrats.
"Barack Hussein Obama is my President too and so was George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, etc, etc, etc."
I think that's the way it should be. When all is said and done, we're all on the same team and should be pulling in the same direction. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean that everybody has to like the politics or the actions taken by their elected representatives if those are inconsistent with personal beliefs as to what is best for the country and themselves. That's the essence of "democracy."
I think the wrong man was elected last November, but that doesn't mean Mr. Obama ISN'T my President or that I'm going to spend the next four years criticizing everything he does. (Well...not EVERYTHING...) But he needs to do more with the economy and our fiscal house than just running up more debt. THAT'S the message that the Republicans are trying to transmit - feeble and clumsy as their attempts might be - and I support that particular message.
According to press accounts, Mr. Obama's words right after taking the oath of office earlier today were: "I did it." I just wish he had said something more like "Let's (as in let US) do it" (as in get to work for the people of this country).
"....a good start would be for him to get on Harry Reid to pass a budget in the Senate...
An announcement by Boehner the other day formalizes a suggestion I've made here (and transmitted to Chambliss, Isaakson and Kingston) in the past. They've tied it to the debt ceiling "negotiations." In exchange for a 90-day extension of the debt limit, both houses of Congress both have to pass a budget otherwise: "no budget, no pay" for any of them. (The last part was my suggestion.) By operating off continuing resolutions for the past three-plus years, the Dems have been able to "hide-the-ball" on the federal government's actual spending "needs" and "goals," which has completely demolished any idea of the "transparency" they claimed this administration would demonstrate when they took power in 2009.
Thanks, JimmyMack that’s how William Jefferson Clinton was so successful and thank you too Chief MVB, another objective would be to get retired police officers in our schools to protect our little children from the Adam Lanza’s of this world. They always hit the no guns allowed facilities. JimmyMack, I violated a company policy, was asked about it and admitted my wrong doings, it’s all in the past and as the President said I’m moving forward!
"....Mr. Obama's words right after taking the oath of office earlier today were: "I did it." I just wish he had said something more like "Let's (as in let US) do it" (as in get to work for the people of this country)."
He must have read my post (fat chance, right?), 'cause it may have come a day late, but he "tweeted" the following during church services this morning:
"Let's (as in let us) go."
Actually he said he wanted to finish what has been started.
I hope we will all be happy with whatever is done.
Something profound needs to happen.
We are drowning in debt and the clock is ticking.
Actually, he said "I did it":
and he said "Let's go" after he said "I’m honored and grateful that we have a chance to finish what we started. Our work begins today."
He was speaking to his daughter Sasha.
There was a flub 4 years ago where he did have to retake it the next day.
It went like this.
"Good job, daddy," Obama's daughter said. As he was hugging her.
The president responded, "I did it."
"You didn't mess up," she said.
Its amazing the websites that come up, like the one you sited, that try to make those 3 little words a big deal. I thought everyone had seen him speaking to his daughter until I read this blog. There are plenty of websites that tell what happened just as it happened. You can hear them here:
It was a very sweet moment.
Yes - a lot of the time the press will report only that part which serves their purpose, putting an entirely different slant on reality. Thanks for pointing this out.
As to the tweet, they did publish the entire text via a screenshot, so they would have had to forge/doctor it to distort or alter it.
Regardless, we're now into the second term. I mentioned earlier that I've been impressed by his cabinet selections and I was not disappointed earlier today. It was reported that the President intends to nominate Mary Jo White to be the next chairman of the SEC. (No, Sporty - not that SEC, but the Security and Exchange Commission.) I have followed Ms. White's career in the news over the past several decades, and I believe she is exactly the butt-kicker that is needed to head the SEC. She is a former federal prosecutor who was involved in the indictments/trial of crime boss John Gotti and several al Qaeda prominents, to include Osama bin Laden way back when. IMHO - she has GUTS, and is exactly the person we need to head-up an agency which has appeared to be leaderless for so many years.
