Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner was overheard loudly complaining on the phone in the Delta Lounge at Reagan National Airport outside Washington about Obama's healthy food initiative.."
First of all, why were you looking at Mrs. O's moneymaker? As old time people used to say: "Stay out of black folks business".
Some of us happen to like a nice* "moneymaker".(Why do you think Kim Kardashian dates so many brothers?) Still, it's nice to know that O still has a little brother left in him.
Anywhoo, I have seen the good congressman, and, believe me, he is in no position to make fun of Mrs. O's physical appearance. Just sayin.
"According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Daniel Bice, Sensenbrenner made a similar remark at the Wisconsin church he was referencing in his phone call, telling attendees there that Obama has a "big butt."
The Wisconsin lawmaker—who, it must noted, is a bit rotund--sent a personal note to Obama apologizing for his remarks, his spokeswoman Amanda Infield tells Yahoo News. She declined to go into detail about what the note said.
In a statement to reporters, the lawmaker reiterated his apology. "I regret my inappropriate comment, and I have sent a personal note to the First Lady apologizing," he said."
A spokesman for Obama did not respond to a request for comment."
"A bit rotund"? Ya think?
I swear, republicans can be so petty. Eight years of first lady **Barbara Bush and I never heard a comment from the dumbocrats about her physical appearance.
And lord knows....let me stop.
Finally, this is all you need to know about Flipper Mitt: he waits until signs of violence in Iraq to attack O for pulling out of that country. He didn't have the courage or the "stones" to make a statement and take a position when the withdrawal was in full effect. But we have come to expect no less from Flipper.
"I hope that risk is not realized. I hope that we're able to see stability there but the president's failure to secure an agreement and maintain 10,000 to 30,000 troops in Iraq has to be one of his signature failures," he told Reuters.
Romney was speaking in an interview on his campaign bus in New Hampshire. The former governor of Massachusetts is among the top two candidates to win the Republican nomination to take on Obama in November, 2012.
In widespread comments on foreign policy, Romney rejected the transfer of Taliban prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay military prison into Afghan government custody as part of a secret dialogue to end the Afghan war.
He also accused Obama's of falling far short in his handling of the economy despite some signs of strength such as a drop in the unemployment rate to 8.6 percent from 9 percent.
Republicans will use Iraq against Obama in the election campaign if the country descends into violence again after the recent U.S. withdrawal. Thursday's attacks there are the first sign of rising violence since Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki moved to sideline Sunni rivals." [Source]
So now I know what wingnuts want for Christmas: a dead Iraqi or two.
