    Excuse me, Mr.Castellanos... Sex??? You speak for yourself... Don't project your input on our great President Obama...

    Of course she would. These unattractive Dem babes, who cannot find a date, have nothing else to do but sit at home and fantasize about Obama. What is it with these Dem politicians and sex? They have a real problem here, and intensive psychological counseling is needed.

  15. Little too late????

    THIS is all coming together! Someone made the analogy that the Obama Administration is like watching Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles". Some of the quotes/scenes are not perfectly in line (after all, it wasn't to be a prophecy from 35 yrs ago...). Here is a few...

    Mel Brooks' "GOV" character is soooo much like BO...a mouthpiece for his staff to push agenda.

    When Slim Pickins says, "You use your mouth better than a ten-dollar (a word that rhymes with DOOR)."

    Shouldn't they censor this kind of stuff on network television?

    Sometimes I wish I was an American. Sometimes I don't. Rush L. Give me a personal break. Shut him up. Put him and all the GOP out of their miserable misery. Sheeesh. Rush L. You must be kidding. Spewing garbage and vile bile and 'hoping for failure' isn't what's needed to fix the mess you're in. Support your president and believe in him, he is trudging a very delicate path trying to clean up what was left by the likes of Rush L.

    Does that mean you want to have sex with Obama?
    I support Obama but that's as far as it goes.
