    Wayne Allen Root definitely has it out for Obama but a lot of what he says cannot be disputed.

    Yeah, he had the grace to resign after the house committee broke party lines, voted 27-11 I think it was to impeach him making it all but a certainty he would be booted, and Goldwater went to the White House to tell him he had no support left in the party, leaving him no options.
    That's pretty much what it will take for anyone to voluntarily leave.

    Specifically? Yeah, I could, but I won't (I'm lazy) - even if I did, it wouldn't make a difference. Let's be real here - you guys act as if Republicans make up every single thing against Obama and there's nothing they've come up with that's legitimate. At some point you have to think either the Republicans are literally just liars with no sense of morality and no regard for honesty or the truth, or, there has to be at least a couple of things they're pointing out that have some ground.

    Yeah, when some of the party's loudest critics spent literally years spouting birtherism and insisting that he's secretly Muslim (some still are), it becomes a lot easier to dismiss everything with the "literally insane liars" line...

    Honestly, I think teasing the "muslim" angle is in response to the sputteringly idiotic line of "thought" (for want of a better word) that saying his middle name aloud is somehow racist or bigoted. Apparently in any but the mouths of children being brainwashed to see him as a historic leader even though he'd been in office for about 8 hours, it's a Bad Word.

    Really? You "honestly" think there aren't any republicans/tea partiers who think Obama is Muslim? It's all just "teasing"? Sure...

    Oh, sure, there are probably some, but much like Kenya jokes at this point, it is mostly for the grim satisfaction of the butthurt of others.

    Thats right Fred. Everything is just imagined. It's a mirage. Fast and Furious and one of our agents killed. Conservatives with an IRS butt probe at their door after giving hefty donations. Tea Party groups with "special consideration" from the IRS. Fox and AP reporters cell phones and email accounts tapped. 4 Americans dead in Benghazi and the administration throwing some poor cat in jail for making a you tube video. NSA. Bush leaves office and Iraq is free and Al Quaeda is gone...now their flags flying in major cities. Our terrific foreign policy everywhere. Obama's handling of Putin, Iran, Syria, Lybia, ____fill in the blank. The disastrous rollout and lies of Obamacare, $7 T in additional debt, 13% unemployment, Obama's wonderful approval ratings and even Obama spending a long weekend with his posse at the posh Ocean Reef club, as I type, hopefully to discuss Income Inequality and the massive difference to our economy in hiking the minimum wage to $10. (If he has time after 36 holes day and a massage.

    IT IS JUST ONE MASSIVE ILLUSION. COULDN'T POSSIBLY BE TRUE. NONE OF IT.

    Let's see, you claim that liberals on Too Hot have claimed that it's absolutely impossible that the IRS could be used for political means. Yet you refuse to point to someone saying that.
    Sounds like you simply made something up.

    In his recent columns Root refers to Obama as his classmate at Columbia. A few years ago Root was writing columns insinuating that Obama never attended Columbia. I think it's safe to say that Root manufactures "facts" to suit the story.

    prezBHO probably went to Columbia but I do find it interesting that there is not a whole lot out there about his time there or who he associated with

    I am sure that some of the stuff out there about prezBHO is made up-and it would not surprise me in the least if some of it was put out there by the regime just to further muddy the waters

    what is undeniable is prezBHO's inability to lead and or accomplish much if anything

    that's certainly how Root became well-known, claiming Obama didn't go to Columbia. When that failed, he tried to claim that Obama went as a foreign exchange student.
    Something, anything to get people to pay attention to him.

    Have we ever identified anyone who knew him at Columbia? I find it odd that at least whoever he was sharing his bong with couldn't remember him. Or his dealer?
