ALOHA, ALL!!! So I return home from Europe, land in the good old US of A, turn on my non-EU-friendly “smart” phone, and what do I see? Stories about moats & alligators. Hmmmm…….I’m reminded of how the people in Italy are now laughing at 0bama (of course, they have room to talk with Berlusconi.) Yes, jokes, snide comments and unflattering remarks about our illustrious leader are now commonplace in Europe. Where’s the love??? Not long ago they hailed him as if he were the second coming of Christ (note: that pre-election appearance in Berlin with tens of thousands was also a free rock concert.) In fact, the news coverage of 0bama is much more critical in Europe than in the US. Amazing what happens when the media aren’t attached at the hip to the administration. They realize he’s pathetic and aren’t afraid to express it. We have a serious immigration problem in our country and he mocks Republicans. Way to go, Barry/Barack. He didn’t just mock Republicans in his remarks, but the vast majority of people in this country who want the border fixed. Is he really that stupid? 2012 can’t get here soon enough! American Thinker: Yes Mr. President, I Do Want Alligators in My Moat
Little known facts from the above article: “In addition to the more than $500,000 that Obama spends on speechwriters, he also pays up to $100,000 to an outside public relations firm that he apparently uses for teleprompter lessons, “speech preparation training,” “speech writing services,” and “speech coaching services.” Can anyone think of a good bumper sticker?
“Game” on! Alligator | Mexico Border | Obama | The Daily Caller ““I actually think a moat might be a very good idea and I’m wondering how many alligators it would take to secure the entire border,” Rep. Joe Walsh says in a May 11 letter to Obama.”

0bama on immigration – only the overseas papers tell it like it is. Immigration reform: Obama heckled by Hispanic and Asian voters | Mail Online Be sure to check out the reader comments at the end of the article. It turns out that Europe isn’t smitten with 0bama anymore. Like I said above, where’s the love?
Lt COL Terry Lakin is released. Army doctor freed to focus on family, medical career “Terry Lakin was released (Friday) from Ft. Leavenworth, where he served almost six months of prison time for refusing orders over his doubts about Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, and told WND that he is going to focus on his family first, then his church and medical career.” It’s about time he’s released. Meanwhile, we have a feckless president who ruined a good man’s career.
POOP (Particulars of 0bama’s Presidency): This from the Patriot Post: “If you think I’m being unfair to liberals, let me remind you that when Obama’s predecessor was in office, not a day went by when the MSM didn’t let us know how many American soldiers were dying in Bush’s wars. Garry Trudeau even devoted Sunday editions of Doonesbury to listing the names of the fallen. Anyone find it odd that now that Obama is in charge, you don’t get a daily, weekly or even monthly, update of numbers and names? Well, just for the record, nearly 1,500 American warriors have died in Afghanistan over the past 10 years, with two-thirds of the fatalities occurring since it became Obama’s war in 2009!” –columnist Burt Prelutsky
Bibi to address Congress. PM Netanyahu will address Congress May 24 – Common American Journal It took Boehner – not Nancy Nitwit – to invite him. Boehner: “America and Israel are the closest of friends and allies, and we look forward to hearing the Prime Minister’s views on how we can continue working together for peace, freedom, and stability.”
Good one: “Osama Bin Laden’s supporters want to rename the Arabian Sea where his body was dumped Martyr Sea. Really? Martyr Sea? Hiding in your bedroom for six years? How about Chicken of the Sea?” –comedian Jay Leno
Final Thought: “Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It’s the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown.” (Thanks to Steve for this perfect analogy!)

ALOHA, ALL! Have you had enough of the birth certificate flap yet? I predict it’s not over. Should it be over? That’s for you to decide. I can tell you that the internet is ablaze with people coming out of the woodwork saying that the certificate 0bama released is a scam. I still have questions: Why did he release it now – is he really that afraid of “The Donald”? Why not during the primary campaign when Hillary’s camp questioned this? Most important – why not before an honorable career military officer & physician (Lt COL Terry Lakin) was sent to prison because he had the gall to question 0bama’s eligibility? So here’s my theory: Barry/Barack is morally ineligible to be POTUS, no matter where he was born or who his father was. Any Commander-in-Chief who purposely ruins a good soldier’s name and career – which 0bama did – is reprehensible. Lt COL Lakin was court martialed after serving 18 years and receiving the Bronze Star. He will be released next month after 6 months in prison, and a total forfeiture of all pay and allowances. I hope we haven’t heard the last from LT COL Lakin…we need honorable men like him to question with boldness, hold to the truth and speak without fear. Meanwhile, check this out (Thanks to Scott for the link):
OK – I have to post one more because it’s my friend Pamela Geller (of the blog Atlas Shrugs) on Fox Business:
Need a passport? Do you know every address you’ve ever had or every place you’ve ever worked? New passport questionnaire baffles many with absurd info demands – Common American Journal “What if I told you that those were some of the queries the State Department is proposing for a new “biographical questionnaire” as part of the passport application? Sounds absurd, doesn’t it? It’s true.” Here’s the document: Biographical Questionnaire for a US Passport
Cheesehead thugs. Wisc. Democrats Use Recall Petition Info to Harass Voters | THE UNION LABEL “In yet another union-styled outrage, Democrats backed by union thugs in Wisconsin are using the personal information of voters found on recall petitions to harass them because they signed a petition to recall Green Bay Democrat State Senator Dave Hansen…Democrats are using a fake phone number and a fake caller ID in order to get voters to answer the phone only to be harangued about having signed the recall petition.” They see the writing on the wall, because check this out…
WOW – just WOW! Mass. Dems Strip Unions of Bargaining Rights – Patriot Update “It’s pretty stunning,’’ said Robert J. Haynes, president of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “These are the same Democrats that all these labor unions elected. The same Democrats who we contributed to in their campaigns. The same Democrats who tell us over and over again that they’re with us, that they believe in collective bargaining, that they believe in unions. . . . It’s a done deal for our relationship with the people inside that chamber.’’ I’d say it’s a done deal for unions. Period.
Panetta to Defense, Petraeus to CIA. Obama Chooses Panetta to Succeed Gates and Petraeus to Head C.I.A. – NYTimes.com “The new assignments for Mr. Panetta and Gen. Petraeus are the Obama administration’s first moves in a major reshaping of its national-security team. The new team will confront major decisions about troop withdrawals from both Afghanistan and Iraq while managing its engagement with allied forces in Libya.”OMG….what about Barry’s leftie supporters who called him “General Betray Us”????? Can Barry possibly be betraying them?
SCOTUS, Kagan & 0bamacare. Obamacare, the Supreme Court, and Recusal | The Foundry “…she (Elena Kagan) is likely to participate in the cases challenging Obamacare, including the Supreme Court’s ultimate review of the matter. This despite growing concerns about how much involvement Kagan may have had in early deliberations about the legislation and then potential litigation while she was Solicitor General—and whether this involvement merits recusal.”
POOP (Particulars of 0bama’s Presidency): Chronicle for Wednesday, April 27, 2011 – PatriotPost “Two college professors just released a study of national protests between 2007 and 2009. What did they find? ‘After January 2007, the attendance at antiwar rallies [measured in] roughly the tens of thousands, or thousands, through the end of 2008. After the election of Barack Obama as president, the order of magnitude of antiwar protests dropped. Organizers were hard pressed to stage a rally with participation in the thousands, or even in the hundreds. For example, we counted exactly 107 participants at a Chicago rally on October 7, 2009.’ Amazing. Especially because the war in Afghanistan ramped up after Obama was elected. American fatalities shot up in 2009 and 2010. The protesters have remained silent over Libya.” –columnist John Stossel
More POOP: Obama’s Top Six Gas Price Myths Busted | The Foundry “The same Washington press corps that hammered President George W. Bush relentlessly when prices were still well under $3 a gallon—well before the $4 a gallon peak, which lasted only six weeks in 2008—have given President Obama a pass thus far on the recklessness of his energy policy. In fact, in the first two years of his presidency, as gas prices steadily rose to over $3 a gallon, the press corps never asked the President about gas prices in any of his press briefings.”
ICYMI (In Case You Missed It): Bad news: Inventor of teleprompter dead at 91 « Hot Air “Imagine how different our country would be if not for his invention.

While Barry was taping Oprah. Southern storm system spawns dozens of tornadoes, killing 250 people in 6 states – The Washington Post God bless all the people affected by the storms. UPDATE: Barry/Barack is headed to Alabama on Friday. There must be an 0bama fundraiser nearby.

UPDATE 1-Governor says Obama leaving Texas in the dust | Reuters The fires started in mid-April. God bless all the people affected by the fires.
