just a reminder.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we have a president in the White House who referred to Americans who disagree with him as 'our enemies.' Think about that. He actually used that word. When Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush used the word 'enemy,' they reserved it for global terrorists and foreign dictators -- enemies of the United States. Enemies of freedom. Enemies of our country. Today, sadly, we have president who uses the word 'enemy' for fellow Americans -- fellow citizens. He uses it for people who disagree with his agenda of bigger government -- people speaking out for a smaller, more accountable government that respects freedom and allows small businesses to create jobs. Mr. President, there's a word for people who have the audacity to speak up in defense of freedom, the Constitution, and the values of limited government that made our country great. We don't call them 'enemies.' We call them 'patriots.'"
- House Republican Leader John Boehner

I half expect Barry to ask France for political asylum in 2012. He can hang out with Roman Polanski and Baby Doc Duvalier.

That's why I don't consider Obama to be my president--that sounds anarchistic, but he doesn't consider himself to be my president either.

I would think that people would react in such a way: "If he feels that I'm his enemy, then he must have done things that would make me feel that HE is MY enemy."

I wouldn't want to be in his shoes. You cannot be POTUS and declare the American people to be your enemy. Not unless you intend to declare the American people to be your enemy.

Barack Obama hates me, this I know. The King always hates his serfs.

I know Obama hates me. I'm a libertarian who has a bunch of guns. How could he not?
