Yesterday we posted the photo above -- of the current and future president meeting at the White House -- and asked Fixistas for their suggested captions.

Our favorite?

* "And then when you come out the door you wave to the press like this . . . that's it. But be sure not to answer any of their questions."

And in the honorable mention category:

* "I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello."
Posted by: jhbeck23

* "Obama: 'Mr. President, I believe the photographer asked us to raise our right hand.'"
Posted by: walkie

* "Bush: Thank you, folks, you've been a great audience."
"Obama: Drive home safely and don't forget to tip your waitress."

* "As you can see Barack, from the outside they look like Greek Pillars. From the inside they feel more like bars..."

Well done! Stay tuned for some more caption contests.

Dear 37thOSt.:

You are Brain-Dead! Every time you refer to the "liberal media", it's clear that you've been brain-washed by America's Right-Wing Fascist Racist Lying Neo-Con Clinically Insane Far-Right Media.

Although, in your case, I wouldn't say you've been "Brain-Washed". Rather, you have been "Brain-Befouled", Brain-Warped", "Brain- Removed", "Brain-Deprived", and "Brain-Destroyed". You should sue the Right-Wing media for a New Brain and for all medical transplant expenses.

Let me remind you, too, 37&0. You are a laughingstock here -- a loser. I laugh everytime I read your insane paranoid crap. So does everyone else. Loser, loser, loser.

Is this all there is to your life? Spending your time here being the village idiot? Sad. Now that kingofzouk, limbaugh's parrot, has gone off to hide under a rock, you are the sole remaining laughingstock. How does that feel, loser?

Let me repeat. Loser, loser, loser.

Hamas Claims Secret Relationship with Obama Aides

by Hana Levi Julian


(IsraelNN.com) Hamas is claiming close and ongoing ties with America's upcoming Obama Administration, according to a report published Tuesday in the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat. The relationship was kept under wraps until after the U.S. elections so as not to harm Obama’s election prospects. The U.S. has classified Hamas a terrorist organization.

The London-based publication interviewed Gaza-based political chief Ahmad Yousuf, advisor to Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the Hamas regime in Gaza, which seized power in a bloody coup d’etat in 2007. Yousuf declared that Hamas has been in regular contact with President-elect Barack Obama’s advisers for months.

"We were in contact with a number of Obama's aides through the internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza," the Hamas official was quoted as saying, "but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as that may have had a negative effect on his election campaign

AND by the way the Taliban already can not wait for Obama to "cut and run"

Associated Press Taliban insurgents battling the U.S.-backed Afghan government urged President-elect Barack Obama to change course in U.S. foreign policy and withdraw American troops from both Afghanistan and Iraq

Funny how you come out with an attack like that in response to a simple request for Obama's hospital records at birth. That is all we want - NOT SOME DOCUMENT WHICH IS ALSO ISSUED TO BIRTHS OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY.


WELL WHERE ARE THE RECORDS??


If Obama was not hiding so many things, perhaps there would be less people with suspicions.

AND about your issues with the First Amendment.


The First Amendment stays in place no matter who is the President. That includes the right to petition the government for redress - so I would get off your high horse - you are ruining democracy for everyone else.

Apparently you are opposed to the First Amendment Freedom of Speech - the essence of which is TOLERANCE which you do have any of.


Second you probably want to grant amnesty to all the illegal aliens.


Third, you probably want to raise my taxes.

I would like to see an investigation into the contributions to Obama to see if there was any ILLEGAL MONEY TO GO WITH YOUR ILLEGAL ALIENS.

So you can take your anti-freedom agenda and go somewhere else with it.

Uh, excuse me, 37thOSt. -

Gotta tell you, your various pieces of paranoia, with all those blank lines and capital letters - dude, you're spoiling it for everyone else. That may be your intention, but if you actually believe that you are passing on valuable information, you should know that I - and I'm sure almost everyone else - scroll(s) past your self-obsessed, illogical ad hominem attacks on Obama, Democrats, liberals, etc. because, while some would probably be willing to converse with you if you showed signs of thinking, for most people you're nothing but an annoyance. You're not changing any minds, you're not impressing anyone with your thinking, and you're not even making much sense. So before you post again, stop and ask yourself, "Have I said this already? Has anyone responded seriously? Does what I'm saying really make sense? Is it provable - in the better US papers, like the Times, Post, Tribune? Is it an original thought, or did I copy it from someone else? Do I even have any self-respect left, pasting the same silly thing over and over and over, with no responses?

If on the other hand, you're TRYING to annoy your readers - maybe to drive them away from Chris' fine blog? maybe you should stop and consider the following:

Your guy lost by 7 points. Our guy won.

Did you get that? I'll repeat it several times.

Your guy lost by 7 points. Our guy won.
Your guy lost by 7 points. Our guy won.
Your guy lost by 7 points. Our guy won.
Your guy lost by 7 points. Our guy won.

Take as many of those as you need, and please feel free to come back for a refill as often as needed. But in the meantime, feel free to keep your opinions to yourself.

The word is that the document produced by Obama is the same document given out by the State of Hawaii for births in the United States as well as to record births to US Citizens abroad. So the document produced does NOT prove that Obama was born in the United States.


Obama will have to show a real birth certificate and perhaps release which hospital in which he was born and attempt to get some medical records.


I heard that Joe Biden's operatives are investigating this situation and have come up with no proof of Obama's birth in the State of Hawaii -


Otherwise they say Obama would have produced hospital records long ago.


They have two people in Keyna seeing if they can find records there - however the records are not preserved like here in the United States. Joe Biden is said to be prepared to confront Obama if any paperwork turns up - and even if the investigators believe that there is no evidence of Obama being born in any hospital in Hawaii.
