From the Pirate Menace to a White House Tour

By Michael D. Shear
White House officials confirmed on background today that several of the families of the crew members from the U.S. container ship hijacked by pirates were given a tour of the White House today.

It was not clear whether the president met with them during the tour. A White House official said there are no plans for Obama to meet the crew members themselves when they return late tonight at Andrews Air Force Base.

The president departs from the White House tomorrow morning at 9:30 a.m. for his trip to Mexico and Trinidad. He will fly to Andrews and then depart on Air Force One, officials said.

There are insane people on both sides of the aisle. Obama was not referring to insane people in his disparaging remarks. Next "strawman" argument?

You mean like that nut in Pittsburgh who killed the 3 police officers because like you he believes Fox's fairy tails about how Obama is going to take away your guns? Is your tin foil hat on straight today?

LOL! Regardless of whether I am or not, the only time that question is relevant is whether someone is qualified to be President of the United States.

What "Big Lie" is that?

JakeD's probably just trying to do the old "Big Lie" thing.

Either that or he's just nuts...

Maybe they were granted a "permit" but then mysteriously turned away like what happened at the Treasury Building in D.C.?

Oh Jake, I would have gladly gone down to City Hall here in Beautiful San Francisco to laugh at the 9 Teabaggers who tried to march there today but I hear that they were too stupid to actually file for a permit.

That's right, marSF. Keep making fun of all those people who cling to guns or religion.

marSF:

Actually, it wasn't hard at all after teabagging all day. Maybe you should try it?

Posted by: JakeD | April 15, 2009 4:24 PM | Report abuse

It is hard for Jake or The Saint to think straight when they have been tea-bagging all day.

Saint:

Thank you. Now I am convinced.

But I'm also convinced the "plot" has been exposed.

Oh LOL! :-D

Folks, the question is NOT how long Patriots like JakeD, or Alan Keyes keep trying to force O'Bomba to reveal his Long Form Certificate.

It is going to be: WHEN, is the phony Messiah going to remove the Federal Agents at the Hospital from blocking access to records, and WHEN is he going to come clean?!

As is, it stinks like Friday's Fish!

No. Next question?

TO: JakeD @ 3:57 p.m.


Given the likelihood that no one but a paid disinfo agent would so consistently post here hourly, day after day...

...and given your statement, below, about "enemies, foreign OR domestic"...

...could your current mission involve "softening the (PR homefront) battlefield" for a silent coup?

Or maybe not-so-silent, given your high profile and the apparent transparency of your alleged "craft"?

You will note that I never resort to ad hominem personal attacks against any of you posting here.

OHREALLYNOW:

Thanks for the question. I continue to "harp" on this citizenship issue because the United States Constitution sets forth said requirements to be President. I also took an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign OR domestic. Next question?

bsimon1:

No thanks. I will bring it up every time the WaPo attempts to call Obama "President".

Posted by: JakeD | April 15, 2009 3:53 PM | Report abuse

JakeD you sound like such an idiot. Why do you continue to harp on this citizenship issue? I am an American citizen and although I am not able to visit Trinidad and Mexico during this economic CRISIS, I will be visiting ARUBA!!!!!!! Get over it, you too SAINT. The American people have spoken, Barack Obama is our President, and that's that!!

Hey, disinfo trolls:


Your boy W would have been mugging it up for the telly cams under similar circumstances.


That said, it would be entirely appropriate for the WH press office to release a color still photo before 5 p.m. -- an understated sop to those who judge a President by a military "mission accomplished" (in this case, a REAL one).

"For the record, Obama is not "The President" unless he is a "natural born" citizen."

Reposting that nonsense is as annoying as the folks that still sport the 'Re-elect Gore' bumper stickers. Get over it.

Posted by: bsimon1 | April 15, 2009 3:36 PM | Report abuse

For the record, Obama is not "The President" unless he is a "natural born" citizen. As for his trip tomorrow, how many Americans during this economic CRISIS will get to visit Trinidad, let alone Mexico?

Posted by: JakeD | April 15, 2009 3:14 PM | Report abuse

Another "Crises" too good to pass up?

What a Shameless Schmuck!
