Lech Walesa is one of the great greatest heroes of the 20th century.
He played a major role in causing the fall of the Soviet Union.
He’s not welcome at the White House. Too political.
And people wonder why Obama is suspected of being a socialist.
“For a start, voters are getting gloomier about the economy. Joblessness remains high and debt is out of control. According to one poll released this week, only 33 per cent of Americans expect the economy to improve in the coming months and only 43 per cent approve of the way that the president has handled it. Voters think Obama has made the debt situation and health care worse. The man who conducted the poll – Democrat Peter Hart – concluded that “Obama’s chances for re-election… are no better than 50-50.”
I obviously can’t prove it, but I ‘d be willing to bet that Barack Obama is the first president, with the possible exception of Bill Clinton, to smoke weed in the White House and I’d bet that he’s smoked a joint in the last week.
I couldn’t care less, by the way, and it wouldn’t prevent me from voting for him.
Are we really going to have to hear President Obama and his supporters whine about Bain Capital for the next five months?
Is that all they have?
To see how much Obama’s star has fallen, all you have to do is compare his message this to the one he was selling in 2008.
Back then, he was selling himself. He was selling hope and change. It was all a hot, steaming pile of un-vetted horse manure, but that’s what he was selling.
Now he’s selling –or trying to sell — the other guy is an evil capitalist who spent years doing what he enjoys most, firing people and getting rich.
Of course, his campaign has no problem with taking contributions from the evil Bain Capital.
The Obama campaign and his friends in the media apparently haven’t figured out yet that this election is not going to be about Mitt Romney. It’s going to be about Barack Obama.
It’s not going to be about the evils of equity firms that save and produce jobs for millions of people.
It looks like the American press has given President Obama a pass for playing golf on memorial day, but not the British press.
I wish Obama and everybody in congress would play 36 holes five times a week.
Anything to distract them from coming up with more ways to tax us and ruin the country.
But, I have to agree with the British writer who says it was a bad move for the Commander in Chief, who should have spent the day looking like a Commander in Chief. There are plenty of family members of the men women killed in our most recent wars who would have appreciated a visit.
For a smart guy he sure can be amazingly tone deaf sometimes.
