flyboyUT - "Lies my President told me."

Didn't hear too much in the way of actual lies. Quite a bit of incompetence, and a naïve belief that Congress would actually do something 'sensible'.

Interesting that no response has been forthcoming. When ones lies are shown for all to see, it is easier I guess to just pretend they don't exist rather than own up to them.

In response to your, "...did he really say that???? He really did watch the video and he says he didnt see any lies?????"

Unbelievable but true. Maybe he's the bringing to real life of Superman's Bizzarro?

From your anti-religious posts, one can only imagine "your extreme mental depression and… is fueled by" anti-religion " addiction/psychosis mental illness... all addictions, including" anti-religion" addiction, are based around a central core of mental depression... you need to break free of your Anti- religion addiction BEFORE it causes your suicide..

Then again, with your being anti-religious it wouldn't matter in the slightest. God's justice for us all.

johnsell - "How can you talk if you don't have a brain?"

Could say "I belong to the Tea Party", or any number of other things, many of which wouldn't be complimentary to either liberals or conservatives, and be just as accurate.

"Only way Putin would be in any danger from Obama........."

While that one's actually funny.

"I believe that God gave us the leaders, not that he WANTS for us, but,
rather, that we deserve. He did it in Israel, giving them Saul as their first earthly king (1Samuel 8:6-9:17) Although it grieved Him that He had been rejected by Israel, He gave them what they asked for--what they deserved.

And He did it in America. Barack Obama is our Saul. We deserve Barack Obama because we were silent--as prayer was taken out of public schools, as the value of life was diminished in the name of choice, as morality was destroyed for the benefit of desire. America remained silent. Rejecting the Christian foundation given to us by our Founding Fathers, a new leader was desired. One who would bring “change.” One who believed, “…where we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation…”

End Times in America !

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., described the lack of communication between the White House and Congress as "stunning." He said he first learned many details of Obama's border request from news reports. Obama is the "only person in America who can sign something into law and help bring members of his party on board for an outcome on a given piece of legislation that requires bipartisan support," McConnell said in an interview. "So it's a mystery, but that's the way they operate." Several Democratic lawmakers echoed McConnell but spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid alienating the president of their party. They said they were baffled by the White House's tactics in handling the border request. Several Democrats expressed frustration that the president and administration officials weren't more involved in legislative fights.

Illegal immigration has been an issue for over half a century. In all that time, nobody, in either party, has been interested in it for anything except something to use to their own political advantage.

Sorry, jd, but everything you've linked to, and everything I've been able to find, says that it was just a rumor. And says nothing about any Obama spokesperson and any earnest money.

Of course, some then go on as if it was proven fact, but that's typical politics these days.

jd - Note, near the top, "The White House has said the rumors aren't true, but the paper reports local real estate agents, speaking on the condition of anonymity, have confirmed the Obamas are the buyers."

So, basically nothing firm, just more rumor.

And nothing about "mentioned by an obama spokesperson that they had put ernest money on the property".

So based on your lack of posting regarding the subject of Obama's student loans, you agree that what was posted about him still paying on them was pure fiction?

Darn facts... Not nearly as sensational a story as the fiction that ends up being posted here.

"on the Cali house, it was all over the news and according to ABC, CBS, NBC and a white house spokesperson, it's for real."

He meant that the 'house' is real, not the point about the Obama's actually purchasing it (or not - time will tell). Certainly it is a fact that the house itself exists. <s>

As for the other, note that your article said that the WH issued the denial last Monday, so "2 or 3 or 4 days ago".

"on the Cali house, it was all over the news and according to ABC, CBS, NBC and a white house spokesperson, it's for real."

Well rj, if you'd remember, not long ago when Obama was talking about how tuff it was for college grads to get ahead with all their college debt, he said (don't remember the exact quote) he was still paying on his college loan - hmmm, i thot he had more free ride than he had tuition expense. And no, the article didn't mention anything about college debt, I brot it into my discussion because of what obama said himself about his debt.

-

on the Cali house, it was all over the news and according to ABC, CBS, NBC and a white house spokesperson, it's for real.

now, all of a sudden, they are saying - no, it's not a done deal anymore and we are not buying a house in california.

when i read the article and when all major network news had stated so, this was 2 or 3 or 4 days ago - now - apparently they are not. oh well

However, early on, the article says: "'This isn't true,' a White House official told the Daily News Monday, shooting down the report."

Obama’s ‘New World Order’ Quote Will Creep You Out Even If You’re Not a Conspiracy Theorist

“But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria — the devastation that Assad has wrought on his own people; to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise — although we’re trying to see if we can put together a government that actually can function; to ongoing terrorist threats; to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza —

Thanks for your post, Weas. Didn't see it before I replied again. I don't know, I live close to the Beltway area, and can just about tell you where Obama is purported to be without trying to find out because he naturally gets tons of coverage here. I think he could squeeze it in. I think it would mean something to those kids with whom he could talk. For me, it would give him some credibility, which I'm afraid is not there, in my case.
