Rodeo Clown Impersonates Obama At Missouri State Fair

Rodeo Clown Impersonates Obama At Missouri State Fair

“Unbelieveable. There were "tricky Dick" masks around everywhere, and used on national television to mock that president. Why should Obama be any different, since he is the same type of politician that Americans are disgusted with....whether black or white he is abusing and trashing the Constitution just like the rest of them.”

Lovin Colorado on Aug 12, 2013 at 14:18:24

“Yes Ross, I'm sure the crowd was responding due to their disgust with him "trashing the Constitution"....”

Knowitall on Aug 12, 2013 at 14:06:40

“There have been such disrespectful displays for many of our Presidents, and I remember well the "tricky Dick" masks, (They were actually just masks of his face. You added the "tricky Dick" part. However, I do remember a "tricky Dick" dart board with Nixon's face.)

I don't think ANY of those things are respectful or appropriate no matter Who is the President. And I'm saying this with ONE caveat, you must remember Why Nixon had to leave the Presidency. He WAS a whole lot sleezier than most of our modern Presidents.

(I have NO idea what the "abusing and trashing the Constitution just like the rest of them" means. If a President is "trashing" the Constitution, SOMEBODY will file a lawsuit and bring it before the Supreme Court eventually. Though sometimes one wonders if THIS Supreme Court isn't "trashing" the Constitution more than any President ever has.”

“But then again Trickey was a crook - lied to us about a break in - about a war - about a recording (multiple recordings) and was about to be removed from office when he finally resigned in disgrace....

Rick Santorum Wins: Colorado Caucus Results 2012

Commented Feb 8, 2012 at 13:15:13 in Politics

“I'm surprised Ron Paul didn't take Colorado - but I guess with all the Denver Republicans and their more Neocon philosophies then I guess I can understand. Denver is the Wall Street of the West, after all. Too bad we can't get back our real Constitutional government, and get these party politicians out of government totally. Then I could get behind a candidate that at least acknowledges the law of the land. Right now, all we have are socialists or fascists, with no true Constitutional Conservative positions at all.”

“Why not cut out those free trade agreements passed by the Bush Administration, so that we can spread that tax increase around to the foreigners that do business in this country. I mean, they should pay to play, rather than getting a free ride and then using their lobbyists to continue to pump up their foreign economies at the cost of the jobs and businesses in the U.S. Rather than tax Americans, yet again, for Washington's treason and its "puppet government" status for the European and Middle Eastern economies.”

“I still wonder about this story, and its agenda and potential effects. Seems to me like all those elective hysterectomies which were done in the 1970's and before due to scare tactics promoted by the medical community. Although can see Ms. Jolie as having a close family member who died of this disease, I wonder how many "false postives" for this genetic testing will result in order to pump up the economies of these major health care networks. Seems there is an agenda here, to be sure, outside Ms. Jolie's choice. And since she was much in the spotlight during this time - she is, after all, an actress and member of the CFR and a U.N. ambassador, and a U.N. globalist first and foremost - and wonder if the World Health Organization will now come out in support of these expensive tests and costs of health insurance again will be astronomical once the government gets more involved with their mandates. The publicity on this alone seems like overkill to me.”

“Most insurances companies do not pay for it. And as far as publicity, think about it-Hollywood projects an idealized woman-size 2, beautiful, perfect. For her to come out and say that she had a double mastectomy (voluntarily or not) is brave and goes a long way in helping other women who have also undergone this procedure recognize that they are not ugly nor less of a woman for having had this procedure. You must not know a young woman who has had a mastectomy-it does a number on ones self esteem.”

“Another puff piece, since those over 50 can't get hired now to work in the call centers even. And those under 50 still appear to want six figure salaries and instant gratification ala the video game generation who really never sold lemonade from a lemonade stand for their allowance.

Puffy, but without much in the way of truth, or substantiation. Yes, those student loans are high, but if most read their state Constitutions, many of their parents paid property taxes for their educations already!”

“As malice aforethought, and intent? Questionable legal standard, and highly against the entire American justice system using such a bogus standard as neglect to find for the death penalty. Florida should be ashamed, if that is the legal standard for the highest penalty which was reserved for those crimes in which there was premeditation, not simply neglect or negligence, and malice.”

“Where is there proof of "malice aforethought" and intent to kill, which was never proven? I'd hate to have you on any jury in this country, since there was no direct evidence to find for murder in the first degree, or capital murder which is the only one in which the death penalty even applies in this country.

What country are you from?”

LiberalAlarge on Jul 5, 2011 at 01:36:40

“They don't know. I will bet half of them didn't watch the trial. The prosecution did a horrible job. When your autopsy report says "no cause of death was found" no motive and all evidence is circumstantial, the prosecution will have a problem proving premeditated.”

“But not murder in the first degree, or capital murder. Felony manslaughter, most likely and that does seem the most logical scenario. She wanted to party, she used chloroform so that Caylee would sleep deeply while she went out and left her without a sitter, but used too much and killed her instead and wasn't around even to check to see if she was still breathing. Since there are no eye witnesses and no conclusive evidence of intent or malice aforethought, only a bogus and political jury could come back with a first degree capital murder finding.

But this entire trial has been so politicized, I believe she will be convicted of first degree murder, if only to give the lawyers now ten years worth of additional income on this case for the appeals process.”

“Up until about 15 to 20 years ago, there were no such things as "mortgage servicers" simply mortgage companies. Washington afforded these lenders to be able to resell these securities without at least one of the parties consent to those contracts, illegally. And this is what has happened. The banks wish to take your money, but also want the house too and any interest you have in it. And are selling British based LIBOR loans throughout the country not even based on our own currency. While obama and the rest encourage them, to get those campaign donations. Thievery, pure and simple.”

“As a former 45 year Arizonan, there is much, much more to this than the political pundits such as this Sheriff, again using this tragedy for his own self-aggrandizement, portray in the hotbed Arizona has become even since I left in 2006. Much, much more. And the left as bad or worse than the right. Ms. Gifford was a centrist on the border issue, promoting border security above all else. And hated by the left for that position also. I'm just wondering as the reporting on this incident has left much, much to be desired in taking this into context on just what is truly going on in that state. And CNN just as bad as Fox, owned of course by a former British subject bringing his British style conservatism to the U.S. by the day.”

Arizona: The Wrong Answer

Commented May 1, 2010 at 22:24:10 in Politics

“Unfortunately, a rancher also was recently murdered, and ten times the number of a 9-11 in loss of life, and thousands more than that in their cars and property which have left quite a number now homeless and jobless. The time for rational debate passed long ago for many in that state, and fear that it will only get worse until those drug cartels melt down the Copper Dome and the Mexican flag is flying from the former capitol.

Think I'm kidding? It's already been done unofficially, since this is all simply political rhetoric for teh two parties to use once again - since few of those law enforcement officers will be doing much profiling since so many of them get civic donations to their FOP and other organizations from thsoe businesses that hire them, or get those drug monies for the legal defense fees they bring in.”

“The old way worked just fine. If undocumented, verify their reason for being in the state, and if no legal American sponsors them or there is a valid green card or visa, then turn them over to the U.S. Marshall's office for deportation on the next bus to the border after calling their family member in Mexico to pick them up. If charged with a felony, then the AG should be prosecuting them in federal court with a jury trial, not bench trial, for their "crime against the nation."

And get those borders secured since after they put in that interstate highway from Nogales to Flagstaff, the numbers have increased, and so have the hard drug dealers and auto thieves.

Get those borders secured, pronto, and not with California's gadgets, but a physical deterrant to stop those four wheelers and those auto thieves.

End of story.”

“I'd love for Mr. Tutu to make a ten year commitment to live in Arizona prior to having his say, another foreigner without it clue, it seems, as to what is really going on in the border states and has been for decades, progressively, and no wonder the Arizona washes are now becoming tent cities all their own.”

I (not even a medium soul) would suggest that your lack of humanity is showing and that the tent cities are a symptom of the US's economic success compared to Mexico, Central and South America. Those people stealing across the border and real human beings, deserving of our respect and simply desiring a better life for them and their families. Have a heart, please.”

“Sorry about that, but was used as an example since there are so many unaware of the number of different tribes even in Arizona other than the Navajo. And there are many.

And no, actually, I am hoping many some of the Canadians will also be included, and as I said since Arizona does border a foreign country, this is rhetoric since there really always has been screening due to its proximity to a foreign country to begin with.

And the state's primary duty, as also the federal government and its entire reason for existence, is to provide for the common defense of the American people, not foreigners.”

MJHammonds on May 1, 2010 at 22:33:00

“Since this law is in Arizona, I doubt seriously that there will be many Canadians caught up in the net. Even if they are there, do you really think anyone would ask them to prove that they were in the country legally?
I guess what I don't understand is the zenophobia I am seeing here. I am not in favor of open borders, and I have mixed feelings about amnesty for the people who are already here.
What I am very sure of is how this law will affect people like your ex-husband and your daughter, who are citizens but guilty of appearance, which if they live in the state of Arizona, could be worse than the day you were detained in Nogales.
How would you have felt if he were then detained under Arizona law until he could prove his citizenship? What would you have been feeling then, alone with your children, in a car, while your husband was detained, not knowing where he would be taken, or when he would be released?
That is what I am deeply afraid of for the citizens of Arizona. And when that starts to happen, I am afraid of what might come next.”
