  1. Obama needs to be fired.

    President Barack Obama said he believes the global financial system remains at risk of implosion with the failure of Citigroup or AIG, touching off “an even more destructive recession and potentially depression.”

    His remarks came in a “60 Minutes” interview in which he was pressed by an incredulous Steve Kroft for laughing and chuckling several times while discussing the perilous state of the world’s economy.

    “You're sitting here. And you're— you are laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems. Are people going to look at this and say, ‘I mean, he's sitting there just making jokes about money—’ How do you deal with— I mean: explain. . .” Kroft asks at one point.

    “Are you punch-drunk?” Kroft says.

    “No, no. There's gotta be a little gallows humor to get you through the day,” Obama says, with a laugh
     
  2. Lucrum

    Lucrum

    I'd like to see him swinging from a gallows.

    I wonder if he'd be laughing at the situation then.
     
  3. I would settle on having him deported.
     
  4. He just seems completely unaware and/or detatched from the economic issues.
     
  5. First advocating armed revolution, and then the execution of a freely elected American president. You are a disgrace to all good Americans.
     
  6. Exactly, His knowledge seems like it comes from the op-ed pages of his local newspaper.

    Now he says that Iraq was the easy war and that Afghan is now more difficult. Iraq was hard until it got easy, Obama the fool.

    Then he attacks Cheany for Gitmo , asking how many convictions they got. These are POW's.
     


  7. If he keeps this up he will be forced to abdicate.


    I wonder what our military thinks of this.
     
  8. If it comes out that he was born in Kenya then it may be up to the Military to escort him out of the White House.
     
  9. He is a clinically ill Narcissus and as long as Barry is doing fine so is everyone else.

    He was raised until the time he was 10 in Indonesia. They don't like America there. He spent a good deal of his formative years in an anti American environment as a Muslim. He grew up thinking that America is the devil and Capitalism is evil.

    He can't be a true American because he spent his early years as an Indonesian Muslim. This is why the natural born clause is in the constitution. Its to prevent people like Obama from being in a position to do harm.

    The guys who wrote the constitution were much wiser then the types we have now.

  10. Well, his behavior is indefensible. He is shucking and jiving

    on National airwaves while Rome burns so to speak.

    Maybe he needs to quit giving interviews. Hey, Emanuel

    your boss is making you look bad.
