God, can you imagine being a teenager growing up in the white house? You go out on a date and a couple of Secret Service agents come along. Oy.

If you are tasteless enough to post it , it's yours, jughead. It's a trashy thing to suggest the president would talk like that to a child. I think you should have whatever you are drinking tested for the presence of the dangerous " wanna spill some right-wing trash" virus.

Congratulations you always appear, to personally insult me.

It could appear to some that that is cyber-stalking.

Suggest that you should be aware of :

Ohio
Ohio Rev. Code § 2903.211 (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2903.211)
Ohio Rev. Code §§ 2917.21(A) (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2917.21), 2913.01(Y) (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2913.01)



Cyberstalking. Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet, email or other electronic communications to stalk, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors.
Cyberharassment. Cyberharassment differs from cyberstalking in that it may generally be defined as not involving a credible threat. Cyberharassment usually pertains to threatening or harassing email messages, instant messages, or to blog entries or websites dedicated solely to tormenting an individual.



Rather than report you to the Mods, I just smile at your posts.

I recall Mr Nixon's quotation.

"Don't get the impression that you arouse my anger. You see, one can only be angry with those he respects."

It would be a very brave fifteen-year-old that would ask Malia Obama out. At that age I barely had the courage to ask out a girl who didn't have even one Secret Service agent following her around.

Gitmo.

No balls to speak of during Health Reform negotiations - you should be having a single payer public option. Did I mention Gitmo? Extending the tax breaks for the wealthy?

Wasn't a big fan of a lot of the negative advertising he did in the campaign either - it sucks, even if it's effective. He shouldn't have done any of it.

Then there's that Gitmo thing.

And as Pless said recently, if Obama rolls over on taxes again, it will make a whole lot of us pretty mad.

Jamie, I understand that it's popular to imagine that people who'd vote for Obama see him as a do-no-wrong Messiah. But it's only popular with a group of the people who didn't vote for Obama ... and not with pretty much any of the ones who support him. We can name a bunch of his flaws ... and do. But even so, he better reflects our intentions than the Boehners and McConnells and Santorums on the other side of things.

To say nothing of Romney ... who himself in the final analysis said, well, nothing.

There's a lot to criticize Obama for -- drone strikes, for example, and an over-optimistic view of how the recession would go that resulted in too small a stimulus -- but you've picked some odd targets here.

Presidents since Theodor Roosevelt have been trying to pass a universal health care bill. Obama finally got one passed, and you think he should have passed a bill that wouldn't have had a chance.

Gitmo -- well, here's what The Guardian said about it:


The move to begin new military trials is a defeat for Obama, who had promised to close Guantánamo within a year of taking office in January 2009 after describing the prison there as damaging to the US. He proposed to try some detainees before civilian courts while others would still face military tribunals but with restrictions on evidence gathered during torture.


But that plan was repeatedly postponed as the administration faced problems finding a prison to house alleged terrorists in the US and in the face of resistance from Congress which, among other things, cut off funds to move the accused men. The US attorney general, Eric Holder, had proposed prosecuting some of those accused of the 9/11 attacks, including Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, in a Manhattan court near Ground Zero. But two weeks ago, Obama signed a bill passed by Congress that blocks the transfer of detainees to the US or foreign countries, effectively preventing closure of the prison at Guantánamo.


The president said he objected to the provisions and would work with Congress to overturn them but that appears unlikely to happen now that the Republicans control the House of Representatives.



And as to the extension of the tax cuts, Republicans made that the price of extending unemployment benefits in the midst of a historically severe recession. Obama made a judgment that extending the unemployment benefits was a tradeoff he had to make.

The guy's a politician, not the Messiah. Politics is the art of the possible. Having had a pretty good idea of what's possible, I've not been greatly disappointed. Obama has done reasonably well, which is about all you can expect of a politician.

I realize that in Canada, you don't have a prime minister of one party and a house of commons led by another, which no doubt is why you think our executive branch can accomplish more than it actually can. Our system of government is not widely copied for some very good reasons. It can lead to paralysis.

As for the negative advertising, sure, he should have left all of that to his opponents and let them walk right into the White House, and institute policies he thought would be bad for the country.

As to the op, I'm not offended, but I don't find it all that amusing. Humor is quite culturally bound, and I'm not the target audience. The target audience is people who found it galling that the president would want people to vote for him because of the things his administration accomplished. Had Osama bin Laden been killed on George W. Bush's watch, rummy would be the last person to put up a cartoon with Bush in that position. His feeling that it's funny because it's true comes from who's sitting on the left in the picture, not from the situation itself. I opened the thread hoping for a more universal sort of joke, something about how all fathers feel about their daughter's dates and made ridiculous by the situation of raising girls in the White House.

Top Ten Lines to Scare Your Daughter's Boyfriend
So here's my Top Ten list of Lines to Scare the Crap out of your Daughter's Boyfriend:

1. I'm not afraid to go back to prison.
2. Come on in, son, let me show you my semi-automatic gun collection
3. Bend over and let me attach this GPS tracking unit in the appropriate place
4. Did I tell you about the time I fought off an entire platoon of North Vietnamese without a gun?
5. Did you know that Brock Lesner is my daughter's Godfather?
6. If you behave in a manner unbecoming while you're with my daughter, the authorities won't find your body.
7. I love to cook, and one of my favorite utensils is this ten-inch bread knife with the serrated blade.
8. Things didn't turn out so well with the last boy that dated my daughter. People tell me that when they see him in public he's always glancing over his shoulder with this terrified look on his face. I wonder if it has anything to do with the family dinner we had with Uncle Vito and the boys?
9. We took my daughter's boyfriend, now ex-boyfriend of course, with us one time up to the cabin, but the doctors couldn't fix the injuries from his hunting accident.
10. Careful where you sit. Lulu, my pet Burmese python got our of her cage the other day and I haven't been able to find her. She doesn't take too kindly to strangers.

P.S. Don't forget to tell you daughter that you love her.. . . .
:d . . .

I find it funny, not at all partisan and a comment on the attitude of fathers anywhere.

You mean that a certain person thinks that I was attacking Mr Obama for 'lying' in that he personally did not kill Bin Laden? What a paranoid individual that must be.

Not a date, but a friend of mine was in the British Army before he was in college, one day his troop was being inspected by Prince Charles, and Charles happened to ask where my friend was from "Borth"................."Oh Borth, I used to surf there when I was in college"... "yes I remember seeing you there"....."would you like to go surfing tomorrow".. Leave was arranged and my friend turned up early at the surf beach with his board atop of his old Morris and was hanging with the rest of the surfer dudes. Charles turned up with his board sticking out of the rear of his convertible Aston Martin, followed by a Land Rover and a sedan. He was a good surfer, but my friend (whose name completely eludes me) said he just felt so sorry for Charles being followed by his security like that. I'm a lifelong small "r'' republican but that story gave me pause for thought

I had a Calabrian girlfriend at one stage. Her dad was working 3 jobs and could hardly stay awake when he was at home. Her mum loved me and I had no trouble from her, but I had to fight all 3 of her male cousins who gave us both a lot of grief. Eventually she migrated to Canada without telling her family and I hope she found a good life there.
I always found that getting on with mum was the most important thing, dad's just generally went along with whatever she said.

I live in this political mess. You don't. Consquently, my bile sensor is probably much more sensative than yours.
It's sad thing that our president has had to personally issue a death warrant on certain of our enemies. From what little I know about him he doesn't do it with any bravura. Making jokes about it seems tasteless to me. Maybe it's my elevated age. Nonetheless, I'm more than happy to be the distinct minority on this thread.

Good political humor knows how to stop before it goes sophomorically political.

Some political humorists, like Steward, Mahr and Colbert go too far at least once per show. Some commentators may essay at humor and miss being funny even though they are not so offencive, like Madow. And some are just never funny.

The OP picture stops at just the right point.

When I was still in college I went by a girls house to pick her up for out first ever date. I ended up talking to her dad for about 45 minutes before she was finally ready and we left. right before that happened, her father looked me in the eye and asked " So , Tom. What's a nice guy like you doing dating MY daughter?"

i should have run for it right there........
