    And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!

    Make no mistake about it, we ARE in Syria and have been for some time. We have been arming the Al Qaeda terrorists… errrr….. rebels for more than a year. This is what was behind Benghazi: Obozo regime dealing arms illegally to our enemies of Al Qaeda to help the muzzy brotherhood take over another country in the region. That’s exactly what was going on and why Obozo is covering it up.

    Have a nice day!

      Jesus, OMG, where have you been for the past 25 years or more? Arming our enemies is an old American tradition by now. We arm them when they are allegedly our allies and they turn around and use them against us when we piss them off later. I’m not saying it’s the right thing to do. In fact, I’ve been complaining about it for decades now. And you’re just now becoming aware of it? Or are you just now becoming aware that it is a good thing to use against Obama? We’ve been arming our future enemies indirectly and directly. It’s a result of trying to meddle in the affairs of other countries constantly instead of concentrating on protecting our own country. And why? Is it because of our great capacity for humanitarianism? Or is it because of our great urge to exploit the natural and human resources of other countries? You know my views on all the hysteria over corruption in government. What is your honest view on it? I have little compassion for the news media as well. The corruption we see now is not only in the government but in the scramble for sensationalism in the alleged news media. They (news media) has become way too chummy with the government they used to be charged with keeping honest, and have become more show business than news. Thank the likes of Rupert Murdoch and his ilk. The victim of this collusion is public information.
      Have a good day, OMG. Gotta go. Having the kitchen remodeled and a problem has arisen.

        Metro, like I’ve always said, my friend, I don’t care who is doing it, wrong is wrong. In this case, the people Obozo is arming are NOT our allies now, nor have they ever been. These people are demented terrorists with an evil agenda driven toward muzzy theocratic control over another nation after Liby, Egypt, Tunisia, etc. You want to know how sick these bass tards are? Check out this link…

        Now tell me that this is “just another run of the mill” American arms deal. it is NOT. Clearly we should never have been in the business of arming future enemies, but you must admit that there are differences between people and situations that make certain situations much worse than others. And arming what we know to be outright terrorists is as low as it gets. So while you guys on the left LOVE to dismiss your messiah’s wrongdoing by claiming past wrongdoing as a means of acceptance, that dog won’t hunt with me. Obozo is arming Al Qaeda and Hamas terrorists for the purpose of taking down another government. This is especially dangerous because Russia is arming Assad to put down the radicals.

        From a more broad and long term perspective, it has been a disastrous foreign policy of America since WW2 to think that we can spread democracy around the world through economic influence and force. This has led us to wrongly conclude all too often that the enemy of my enemy is my friend when in the end, both are enemies. The fact is that what made America such a great influence to the world had nothing to do with our buying support or using our military. Instead our greatest influence was our culture of freedom and free market economics within the framework of a system that was not either class based or dominated by political beauracies. People came here for opportunity, and that was our cultural influence. We certainly have gotten away from that since WW2 slowly but surely until what we have today.

        Do not get me wrong. I am NOT in the blame America first crowd like Obozo and so many of the leftist freaks are. And I do not blame America for the muzzies hatred of us. Hatred for any non-muzzie is built in to those people and it isn’t going away. On the contrary, I certainly can accept that our foreign policy has gone astray, but America has been the greatest force for good on Earth that has ever existed. Unfortunately, Obozo does not see things this way. His foreign policy ammounts to kissing the muzzies butts, apologizing for America at every turn, and appeasing the radical muzzies by REFUSING to even acknowledge there is such a thing as Radical Islam. This is the most dangerous of dangerous mistakes. I am sure that you will agree with that.
        Have a great weekend, Metro! Send my regards to Mrs. Metro, please.

          • RobertCHastings says:

            Thank you, Madelaine, for clearing the air on that one. The stench was getting alittle intolerable. I don’t know how he does it, but everytime he posts something, my computer starts to smell,
            awfully. He still hasn’t heard the one about Ronald Reagan having the entire Hezbollah leadership in his sights in Beirut, and couldn’t pull the trigger, even after over 100 marines died in that barracks bombing. Some people just never have much luck at figuring things out. Sure Obama has messed up, or at least people in his administration have messed up, but that was a precedent set long ago. In the long run, it really doesn’t matter, does it, ObozoMG? We don’t control the government, anyway.

          • ObozoMustGo says:

            Moron Maddy… you are a certifiable useful idiot that parrots the Obozo propaganda lines.

          THE BLAZE? You are quoting The Blaze? Oh, please, OMG, tell me you are just making a little joke! Glenn Beck’s “premiere” publication? He also doesn’t believe Michelle Bachmann is crazier than a shithouse rat. I can find no certifiable, verifiable evidence that Obama has armed Syrian rebels. Yet. But he is being strongly lobbied by members of his cabinet. The reports that Assad used chemical weapons against the rebels has him on the edge. My personal choice would be to remove all American military and embassy personnel from Syria and tell Assad and the Rebels to have at it. I repeat, we have — directly and sometimes indirectly — armed future enemies. Let’s not overlook our good friend Saddam Hussein who we aided in fighting Iran. Then the ingrate turned around and tried to steal Kuwait’s oil. Then he was our enemy. Osama Bin Laden was our friend. Then, while our FBI stood around, not noticing that terrorists, mainly from Saudi Arabia (they were our friend, too), were being trained here in the U.S. to fly airplanes (steering them only, not much concerned with learning to land) even some of their own (FBI) agents tried to warn them, we did nothing until they commandeered four planes and murdered over 3,000 people.
          Oh, yeah, now Obama is the ONLY president who provides weapons to our enemies. Not anywhere near on as grand a scale as presidents of the past have done. All this hyperventilating in Washington is nothing but show with one result in mind. Make sure the opposition won’t have a viable candidate to run against them in 2016. Our enemies also get their hands on weapons we gave to our friends (at the time) by taking them away from our friends in combat. Or by our alleged friends in Afghanistan who get weapons from the U.S. and promptly sell them to our known enemies. How about Reagan and Oliver North with their Iran-Contra scheme. But, of course Reagan knew nothing about that. Furthermore, if the Republicans win next time, the Democrats will be doing the same thing to them. Payback is hell. So don’t get your knickers in a knot, OMG. This BS will continue until the American publican finally sees through it and does a thorough job of cleaning house. There should not be any more career politicians, OMG. Two terms for ALL politicians, then out. Back to being ordinary human beings. Forbid them from leaving office and becoming lobbyists — ever — not just for a couple of years. They will have to retire or go back to earning an honest living. Knowing your fondness for quotes, here’s one dating back to Spiro Agnew’s (remember him) corruption trial.
          He’ trying to take the decision out of the hands of twelve honest men and give it to 435 Congressmen — Rep. Charles Vanik of Ohio, when he heard that the indicted Agnew was asking to have his corruption case tried by the House instead of in a regular court.
          Enjoy your weekend, OMG. My best to Mrs. OMG and the kids.

          • ObozoMustGo says:

            Metro… I had a feeling you would NOT read the article I linked to. I must confess, I am disappointed in you. I figured you are better than the usual moron that criticizes a source based upon reputation, false I may add, rather than looking into it. This was sort of a trick I played on you. If you did, you would see that The Blaze article actually referenced a time honord leftist freak publication called “TIME”. In that publication, quoted therein on The Blaze, you would see FACTUAL links to the information that the so-called Syrian rebels are really crazed out, whack job radical muzzies (Al Qaeda linked terrorists) that actually are cutting out the hearts of Syrian soldiers and eating them. There is video you can watch on the internet. And TIME reporters have verified its authenticity. That’s what the link went to. Sorry to see that you are prejudiced so much. I expected you to be more objective. But your claims to hating Limbaugh without listening to him gave me impetus to plant this one on you. Sorry, but you had it coming, my friend.

            Regarding your assertions about term limits… we agree 100%. Nothing else I can add on that.

            Have a nice day!

          • metrognome3830 says:

            My reaction to Glenn Beck’s publication probably seems knee-jerk to you. You may be right. But you are wrong in assuming I have never listened to Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh. I have. You see, OMG, I have a huge dislike of snakes (real ones) but I sometimes get fascinated by watching them. I have the same reaction to Limbaugh and Beck. But, as I do with snakes, I keep a shield or distance between them and me. And eventually, I can stand to watch them no longer. But further, I don’t need Glenn Beck to tell me that Syrian rebels are “crazed out, whack job radical muzzies.” I have read the stories of cutting the hearts out of Syrian soldiers and eating them. What sane, civilized person would do that? Just as well as I know that Beck is a crazed out, whack job pseudo newsman. I know of very few people, other than other radical Islamists, who will disagree that radical Islamists are whacked out crazies. I did read the Spectator article. They have a somewhat better reputation than Beck and Limbaugh. I reiterate, the article takes a lot of license with using conjecture by others who have no more idea of the facts than they do and adding their own spin on what their “evidence” means. I have not been gung ho on supporting the Obama administration. I believe that they can certainly do things wrong. But the other thing I’m pretty sure of: We are not going to get the real story out of either party in Washington. I am still reserving judgment on who did what and why. And if either Beck or Limbaugh ever come up with the truth I will expect the world to end that day.
            Have a great evening.

          • ObozoMustGo says:

            Beck owns The Blaze. He doesn’t write for it. And what pisses you and the left off about them is that they have Obozo and liberalism PEGGED to a T. They speak the truth about all things. Rush is particularly effective at reading Obozo and his goals and tactics. The Limbaugh Theorem about Obozo campaigning constantly instead of governing as a means to distance himself from the disaster of his own policies is 100% correct. Even the leftist media has picked up on it. This is why the low information voters can be surveyed and not support his policies when questioned generically, but they don’t associate his policies with him. And Obozo knows that 90% of the media are in the tank for him so he can lie and distort with full knowledge that he’ll never be challenged except by the small minorty of media that is honest.

            Regarding Benghazi… I told you from the very beginning that the operation there was a gun running endeavor dealing arms, namely anti-aircraft missiles to Al Qaeda. You didn’t believe me. But what I have told you is true. Slowly but surely, this truth is coming out. As it does little by little, you still refuse to see the facts for what they are. Obozo is doing his best to hide Benghazi and distract us, hence the timing of the preplanned and voluntary admission of IRS abuse of political opponents and DOJ abuse of the press. This is designed to change the media news cycle away from the incredibly damaging testimony of the 3 whistleblowers 2 weeks ago. His cheerleaders in the media are dutifully falling in line. The fact is that all 3 scandals are examples of a corrupt Obozo regime. At some point, your loyalty must begin to be broken down. For most leftist freaks, that will never happen. But I don’t consider you a leftist freak. You have more sense than that, Metro. Time to begin using it instead of knee jerk reacting to WHO delivered the news instead of what the news actually is. Do you think you’re going to get honest news on Obozo from The Memo? Or MSLSD? Or ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, or NY Slimes? I’ve said this before and I will say it again: You WANT opposition to political leaders. You WANT opposition doing news coverage and getting to stories that the rest of the media will not cover because of their political loyalties to the left. If these scandals were with a Republican admin, the news media would be relentless on these scandals. You know I a right about this Metro.

            And I did get you’re Mencken quote. It’s one of my favorite.

          • metrognome3830 says:

            You follow your sources, OMG, I will follow mine. You can be assured my sources won’t be Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh. When all the hyperbole blows away, maybe — just maybe, we will find out what really went on. The Tea Party show is only further obfuscating and delaying when we will find the truth. As Socrates said, and I agree:
            “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”


          • metrognome3830 says:

            I tell you what, OMG, if I find out that Obama is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, and is unceremoniously bounced from office, I will buy the sliders and French fries fried in duck fat. If it turns out to not be true, you buy.

          • ObozoMustGo says:

            Metro… do you think for even 1 second that Obozo or Holder are going to investigate themselves? Do you think the “journalists” at The Memo/MSLSD/ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN/NY Slimes/etc. are going to do honest, objective “journalism” about Obozo scandals? Really? Of course not. Then who does that? The opposition does that. That’s what you want. And if you want to be informed, you must go to the opposition for that information. Do you understand this? Don’t be brainwashed by the left who has been effective at smearing any news source that challenges leftist ideology or politcal leaders like Obozo. Their smears are NOT reflective of reality, they are reflective of the fact that the left finds opposition a serious threat. Do you understand this? This is why, Metro, you knee jerk react to criticizing sources without ever really listening or reading them to think objectively about what is being said. You know that I am 100% correct about this, Metro. Like I’ve said, this is why I read and watch predominantly leftist news sources as opposed to just everything I automatically agree with. You should do the same if you actually are interested in the truth.

            Have a great weekend, Metro!

          • metrognome3830 says:

            Once again, OMG, you make assumptions about me. My reactions to your right wing sources are the same as your are to left wing sources. I do read the right wing’s diatribes. Why do you think I don’t like them? You actually believe that I form my opinions based on what someone else says about them? I don’t automatically believe everything left wing sources say either. I don’t believe in “wings.” When a source is biased toward one side or the other the last thing you will get is the whole truth. You criticize me for not listening to or reading the right wing media, but how do I know what they are saying if I don’t? Mrs. Metro has asked me several times, “Why are you reading (watching) that.” My reply is, “I have to know what the opposition is up to.” You accuse me of only believing left wing rhetoric. I say I don’t follow the left wing rhetoric nearly as religiously as you follow the right. Granted, some of the things you post here are “bomb throwing,” but don’t expect me to accept that as absolute truth anymore than I expect you to accept everything I say. But, there is still a small island of middle ground if you want to quit veering right or left and lay off the throttle a little. And sometimes, OMG, I don’t buy into a viewpoint because it doesn’t sit well with me personally. I do have some vestiges of honesty, humanity, morality and a trace of common sense left in me, as I’m sure you do.
            Have a Great Day!

          • ObozoMustGo says:

            Well, Metro, I stand corrected!…………….. maybe! 🙂

            My point is simply that we NEED opposition to actually get to the truth. Obozo is NOT going to investigate his own crimes and incompetence, and he will certainly NOT be truthful about them. The lies about Benghazi that we all know were lies are absolute proof of this. For Pete’s sake, Metro, ABC News revealed that the talking points were revised from the truth to an absolute LIE about a stupid video. I know there are still morons out there that believe Obozo, but at some point you must acknowledge that his strategy in EVERY CASE is “who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?” It’s the same with the IRS abuse of power in targeting his political opponents, and with the harrasment of the AP and Fox. To say that he had no idea any of that was going on is an outright LIE. And none of it would be pursued in the media if not for opposition. The ONLY place you will actually get ANY TRUTH is from the opposition. That is my point.

            Have a great Memorial Day!

            Oh, I forgot to add a famous quote. Forgive me. I know that is our usual sign-off.

            The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

      Dear Obozo, I have just sent you another case of glue to sniff. I know when you have run out because you are only half nuts instead of completely nuts. Please don’t get carried away using the new case of glue because, as it says on the tube, “overuse has side effects like writing crazy things while delirious”.

  2. William Mack says:

    Dear President Barack Obama,

    My concern is your legacy and America’s future.
    After President Bashar al-Assad is long gone, The people of Syria will be killing one another at a level that will blow your mind, The Arab regions of the world cannot function in a Democratic system, There has been too much killing over many years.
    There is too much hate from all the killing, and then there is the religious divide between the Sunnis and Shiites, it is to much is to great.
    The Arab world can only operate as a kingdom, Chiefdom, or Strongman. without this, they will be for ever trying to take revenge against those who have done them wrong, And there are many who have done them wrong. President Bashar al-Assad and his father were and are at this time that strongman, a man that can keep the Arab people in check. Pres. Bashar Al-Assad, has to go, no question about that. But he has got to be replaced with a stronger man, Who has convictions.
    This is why the American people do not want you, President Barack Obama to get into bed with the Syrian people, Take a moment and reflect on Iraq, Baghdad those people are still killing one another. They are like mad dogs, you never go around a mad dog and you never extend a hand to a mad dog. Please Mr. President Barack Obama don’t get suckered into extending a hand to Syria, the Republican Party only want to get you and the Democratic party bogged down in another war. Just so they, the Republicans can say we told you so, Those Democrats, Liberals are stupid. The Republicans are so desperate to get a leg up on the democrats that they’re willing to try anything and this is one of those things.

    • ObozoMustGo says:

      Willie… while I agree wholeheartedly with your ideas that we should stay they heck out of Syria, we should also NOT BE ARMING THE TERRORIST REBELS LIKE OBOZO IS DOING ALREADY. As well, you lost me when you started blaming Republicans for Obozo’s possible decision to go to war in Syria. Is there anything that Obozo has done that you low information voters will blame on him? Anything? Please answer. I am curious to know.

      Have a nice day!

      “Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a supporter of Obozo. But then I repeat myself.” — Mark Twain

  3. NO. Obama decided to have a scandal.Obama is the one that is catering to the Arab world and making promises to them,just as he did with us. He starts conflicts and then points his finger at others and expects them to take the blame.

    and to Arlene Duke…our potus KNEW there was misconduct because nothing of that magnitude should be going on without the knowledge or approval of our potus! If he had no knowledge of that. or the Benghazi attack, OR the fast and furious. or any other event , then he is a lousy president! PERIOD! Let me tell you this..The buck stops there! He is the commander in chief and accountable! If he does not know what is going on in this country maybe he needs to limit his campaigning, partying, fundraising, golfing and vacations. Maybe he needs to attend a few more briefings.He knew what was going on because he authorized it, whether through ignorance or complicity!

    .Furthermore Arlene, the IRS has no business asking some of the questions they did about religious and social affiliations. There is a standard they must adhere to, and they know it as employees, so why would they take it upon themselves to risk their jobs and well being to venture where they did not belong? This is America Arlene, where people should not be harassed , questioned or intimidated because of their “name” when it suggests NOTHING illegal ! Questioning someone on their “purpose” is moot if the name tells it all. Does it make it alright then to ask a group like The American family Association or Catholics for religious freedoms that is tax exempt what their purpose is to the extent of invasion of privacy and putting their name on a list? Political choices and liberties are a right in this country and need not be questioned by the IRS in an intimidating and dunning manner as a point of intimidation. It is agreed by all that is what they were doing and have the proof! The director is resigning to avoid the consequences.You need to wake up and smell the commie brew going on in this beloved country,,support the OFFICE of president, not the man that inhabits it when he has not earned that support, trust or respect. We know nothing about this man,Obama other than what he wants us to see, and most of it is a LIE!
