Rep. Steve Stockman (R – Texas) has announced that President Obama’s actions are unconstitutional and impeachable a full day before Obama announced any of his actions. Later Stockman compared Obama to Iraqi dictator Sadaam Hussein in a bid to continue his calm and reasoned response to new gun control measures. Even Fox News harridan Greta Van Susteren called the comparison “a stretch” – and if you’re making Greta look smart, you know you’re hitting the ball out of the moron stadium.
The White House has announced that President Barack Obama will take the oath of office with his hand on not one but two bibles. One of the bibles belonged to President Abraham Lincoln, and the other belonged to Rev. Martin Luther King. Obama identifies strongly with these two men because Lincoln brought the country through a time of great internal conflict, because King brought about great social change, and because both were killed by white men with guns.
U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice has withdrawn her name from consideration for the post of Secretary of State in the aftermath of severe criticism from congressional Republicans over her testimony on the terrorist attacks on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya.
“We just don’t want another woman or another negro in the cabinet” said Senator John McCain, Rice’s most outspoken critic. “So we’ve killed two birds with one smear campaign. This is as close as we’ll get to beating the crap out of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”
Some analysts think the Republicans have made a mistake in making Rice the scapegoat for the delayed reaction to the attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed. This seems to let Hillary Clinton off the hook in the debacle, and clears the way for her probable presidential run in 2016.
Mitt Romney, in calls to major donors to his presidential campaign, said President Barack Obama bought the election by giving “gifts” to his core constituency: that 47% of loafers and freeloaders who live below the income level that is taxable: African-Americans, Hispanics, and young and elderly voters.
Romney first proposed that Obama is supported by a core constituency of people who want free stuff from the government in early 2012 at an appearance before wealthy donors during the campaign. That appearance was secretly recorded and made a campaign football by the media. Romney recanted and said he was wrong, that his comments were crudely delivered, and at one point intimated that during a campaign it is standard practice to play to the prejudices of the audience.
But it appears Romney has returned to his theme of government-dependent freeloaders blindly supporting Obama to get government handouts as he attempts to rationalize his election loss to those who supported him, and ultimately to himself. He doesn’t see his failure as a result of his unpopular policies, his elitism, or his inability to understand the lives of average Americans. Instead it’s the fault of those poor people, the freeloaders who are looting our government of the hard-earned taxes the rich pay.
Not all Republicans failed to learn anything from the recent election, though. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal criticized Romney’s remarks, saying “I don’t think that represents where we are as a party and where we’re going as a party. That has got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from this election.”
Barack Obama has been elected to a second term as President of the United States of America, narrowly defeating Republican opponent Mitt Romney.
Six billion dollars so things can stay exactly the same. I’m glad I voted for the Green candidate even if she did get about 0.05% of the popular vote. That was a real vote for CHANGE!
Still, it’s better to stick with the idiot we had than to have elected that plastic window dummy the Republicans ran – the one with every possible opinion on every issue. The last thing America needs is a “businessman” running things – they’re the jerks who got us into this mess to begin with.
Most amusing is the thought that right now, somewhere, Newt Gingrich is blind drunk and butt naked and crying “See! I would have won! Me! I’m the President! I’m the President!” as Callista prepares a syringe full of propofol to calm him down.
Of course, had Romney won we at GraceLessLand were prepared:
Bryan Fischer, a broadcaster for the fundamentalist Christian American Family Association, says President Barack Obama is a “closeted Muslim”, and the proof is Obama’s wedding ring.
“ We’ve looked at the photographic evidence, we’ve seen some research on this. There’s a academic expert at Duke University that’s verified that, that is the inscription on President Obama’s ring. And it’s not just a wedding ring, he had photographs of him wearing that ring since the earlier 1980s… And the inscription, according to this academic expert at Duke — and one other prestigious university verified it — yes, the inscription on his ring says that there is no god but Allah. And the reason you haven’t seen any of that in the mainstream media is that — I mean, the mainstream media has not even discussed that — probably because it’s too fucking lame even for Fox News to touch it.”
We at GraceLessLand have learned that Fischer is only partially correct – and things are much worse than he knows:
Here’s a YouTube video in which Chris Matthews talks to a woman outside the Biden vs Ryan debate who calls Barack Obama a communist. When Matthews asks her what she means, all she can say is “study it out”.
For the record, “communist” is what people call Obama because they know others will become upset if they say “nigger”.
President Obama accused his rival Mitt Romney of being dishonest in his debate win on Wednesday. Appearing at a campaign event in Denver Obama said ”If you want to be president, you owe the American people the truth. So here’s the truth: Governor Romney cannot pay for his $5 trillion tax plan without blowing up the deficit or sticking it to the middle class. That’s the math.”
An internal Romney campaign memo from longtime Romney adviser Beth Myers outlines reasons why the GOP candidate should not expect too much of himself in the upcoming presidential debates.
