Speaking of Obama
and the Nobel Peace Prize....

One Year After Obama Wins Nobel, World Looks for Signs of Peace - ABC News

Personally, speaking as an armchair general, Obama hasn't done ENOUGH on the war front. He's managed to make the United States look even weaker than we have been while not achieving any visible progress in Afghanistan, Iraq, or in crushing the various terrorist bugs that annoy us.

That Hope and Change doesn't seem to be working out, does it? (Well, I suppose if you want to build a mosque in lower Manhattan, or threaten the lives of American artists, it's a great time to be alive.)


  1. Posting a pic depicting the president's head as the bullseye of a target isn't the least bit funny.

  2. I have no idea what you're talking about. Unless you're projecting some sort of weird assassination fantasy and trying to attribute it to me.

    What you see as a bull's eye, I see as a halo. And so did the photographers and press people too, I am certain.

    What isn't funny is that the guy was given a Nobel Peace Price. Because of his imaginary halo.

  3. And how on earth does one get from the Presidential Seal and Obama's Holy Icon/Logo to a bull's eye?

    I just don't see it at all.

    Maybe you need to work through some issues?

  4. It's called selective amnesiac hypocrisy, a condition which sees no problem with endless explicit calls to assassinate Bush, but fantasises that the least criticism of Obama is a federal crime.
    As for how things are going under the Big O: well, my mother always said that electing Forrest Gump as president is liking opening a box of chocolates.

  5. Matthew: Your mother is a harsh and witty woman.

    And I've learned something about myself. Even though I don't like Obama and many of his administration's goals, I still see him as the President of the United States. My respect for the office, my country, and the democratic process is such that it never crossed my mind to let anything but the votes of the people remove him from it. I now can see how a certain type of demented mind could see the images posted featuring "president's head as the bullseye", but my mind simply doesn't work that way.

  6. Looks like a dart board to me.
