    Whatever happened to the antique notion of prominent figures —
    particularly governmental public servants — encouraging an elevated tone
    in society, reliably presenting emulation-worthy conduct? By their
    behavior challenging citizens in every way to be better, reach higher?
    Instead, from this administration’s top hands, along with their rotten
    policies and incompetence we get trickle-down tackiness.

          You can say that again. Broken record with this group. I am 63 years old and this garbage just won’t go away. So sick of it.

      • SniperToo

        Your right. We have black, white, Mexican and Muslim trash in this country. Did anyone really think that bit me biden would behave himself.? The female moderator was paid to act the way she did. The day before this circus, the news media came out about her background. mr. little o went to her wedding and her husband is on evil residents payroll? No surprise here. A set up and a joke. Padded.

          SniperToo, your needless race references hurt your argument. Why even frame it that way. As you correctly point out, there are fools in every racial category. I don’t care what ethnicity a wrong-headed person is — I just don’t want him or her anywhere near the leadership of my country.

          • SniperToo

            No it does not, statics show every time that the uninformed minority races do not understand what is at stake here, because most come from ignorant countries; of which mr. little o is trying to change here into the same thing. As far as you are concerned, you sound like the typical thin skin left. I can’t tell you how many nasty things have been throw in my direction because I am white. I don’t care about minorities feelings and they don’t care about the whites, other than what they can steal from us. I want someone who will uphold the Constitution and stop letting the U.N. drive the bus. You, my friend need to look at the big picture instead of lecturing to me. I have seen and lived in just about every type of government in many countries. So don’t lecture me.

            @ Snipertoo — attacking people for their skin color or ethnicity might make you feel better temporarily – it does nothing to move us toward solving our nation’s (or our planet’s) problems, however. When blacks or Mexicans pursue stupid ideas, they suffer, our society suffers. When whites do the same, the awful results are the same. Note: Joe Biden is white. If taking offense at pointless attacks on people for their darker skin or different accent makes me “thin-skinned”, well, I guess I’ll have to live with that charge. I’ve been called racist, homophobe, women hater, right alongside you. Doesn’t mean we should respond with our own brand of ignorant, misinformed hysteria.

          • SniperToo

            My comments are called freedom of speech. You can not regulate and turn off people’s true feelings. The only one who is hysteric is you, because you wont let go of this topic. Engaging in healthy conversation is more important than a leftist troll who insist on acting (play acting) like a typical political correctness ambassador to the idiots in charged. Please move on, you are boring me. You have no idea the names I have been called. By the way, I am a proud white, female, American infidel, Vietnam Vet, Mayflower desendent, Templar Knight heritage, etc.. And I am also a Christian, I believe in God, not Politicians or leftist trolls. Smoke that for a while.

        • WhiteFalcon

          I turned the whole yhing off because of Joe f****** Biden’s stupid behavior. He has the well deserved reputation of being an idiot, which he displayed last night. I would throw him off my property if he ever dared to show up.

      • sjplwc

        David, why the “white people” comment? You delegitimize your observations when you go to that kind of stuff. There are fools in every race and ethnic group.

    True words, and a real problem. Denigrate and degrade the office, and the people will see it as less than it actually is. However, the worst diminishment of the office was done at the roaming hands of the Left’s retired Golden Boy, the ignominius Mr. Bill Clinton.

    Obama has not done a very good job on the economy.
    I can forgive him for that. He has pitted the rich against
    the poor and the people of color against the whites. I can
    forgive him for that, but when he lied to the amercan
    people about the terrorist attack against our embassy
    and did nothing i felt he let us all down. I cannot vote
    for a person who does not have have the strength to
    stand up for american values.

    • Disgusted

      Why are you willing to forgive obama anything? It’s by design he’s done these things. ALL of them.

    • Disgusted

      Ryan has too much class–Why don’t you have as much class?
      Biden is a fifth degree jerk and I can see people wanting him to get punched out, but–Come on–Try to have more class than Biden.

  • 19gundog43

    Biden grinning like the Joker. Nothing but an out of control jester. Sad old man. Don’t let this clown NEAR the WH.

  • Rachelrao

    We do not have a leader but a “Reality Show” ……. the worst gutter, no wait now down in the sewers, campaign, governing by this WH and now the world sees an incompetent man-child and his JESTER bafoon!

    The people at the top of the social heap, everywhere in the world, have traditionally been expected to set standards of behavior, for every-one else. Fro want of a better word – let’s just call the top tiers “The Arisocracy”. Aristocrats were supposed to be better than the Common Folk (whether this is so is debatable. Varies over time and space, as people do). Generally speaking, Aristocrats knew to appear, in public to be Above the Common Man. Now the Aristos are “slumming”
    Every public institution has allowed [itsel] to be “dumbed down” to them ores and behavioral patters of the Lowest Common Denominator. All sorts of tradiotnal insitutions have been compromised, or destroyed. The ONLY source of information, on how to behave, for most people, is television. The programming gets worse by the year, with the advent of cable. I’m not blaming TV. I’m blaming the masses that accept this degraded standard, and seek nothing else. Biden is only playng to the masses.
    “Univeral Equality” is the REAL culprit. Peope are NOT “equal”. There is no such thing as “equality” in Nature. The concept of “equality under the law” – which is GOOD – has been perverted to “we are all equal. Which is BAD. Because it’s NOT true. “Democracy” is a terrible system of government. The worst, in fact. Democracy always trends down to the Lowest Common Denominator. And this is what was are seeing play out, in action, folks.

    By Ben Stein

    Why was President Barack Obama in such a hurry
    to get his socialized medicine bill passed? Because he and his cunning circle
    realize some basic truths:

    The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in
    a poke in 2008.

    (Pig in a poke means: an offering or deal that is foolishly accepted without
    being examined first. A poke means sack.)

    They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different
    from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

    They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.

    They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his
    minister, Jeremiah Wright.

    They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student.

    They ignored his ultra-left record as a “community organizer,”
    Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

    The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student
    and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a

    Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is
    a super likeable super leftist, and not a fan of this country.

    The American people have already awakened to the truth that the stimulus bill
    — a great idea in theory — was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest
    groups, and in no way helped all Americans.

    The American people already know that Mr. Obama’s plan to lower health costs
    while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of something that
    never was and never can be —

    “a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society.” Either the costs go
    up or the free society goes away… an historical truth.

    These are perilous times. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State, has
    given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified betrayal of the
    nation. Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at home in health care. It
    will be joined by controls on our lives to “protect us” from global
    warming, itself largely a fraud, if believed to be caused by man. She has also
    signed on to a Small Firearms Treaty at the U.N. This is a back door gun
    control move. This is approved by the Senate and a 2nd Amendment majority
    doesn’t exist in the Senate now. It will supersede all U.S. Law and the 2nd
    Amendment. All citizen possession will be eliminated through confiscation. Just
    Like Great Britain and Australia .

    Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at
    all in taking away our freedoms. There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once
    freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America .

    Ben Stein is a writer, economist, and lawyer living in Beverly Hills and Malibu
    . He writes “Ben Stein’s Diary” for every issue of The American

    You must, as an American, FORWARD this, or you will wake up one morning and
    your freedoms will be GONE…No longer there!

    I agree with most of the comments about the democrats. One thing does bother me when I read how people say, “moronacrats, obummer and all the other things,” because it sounds so juvenile and also sounds classless. There’s no professionalism with that, either.
    Yes, the motto of the democrats is definitely, “Aim LOW!” No doubt about it.
    The democrats have long been tearing down anything good, or positive. They encourage the “unwashed masses” they court to be the lowest of the low. They make people feel good about their laziness and encourage them to put their hands out for–handouts from the government.
    It’s the feed the bears syndrome. Even with animals like bears, if you feed them, they get lazy and won’t hunt for themselves and if they don’t get their handouts, they get upset and tear the place apart looking for their food.
    So the wildlife management prohibits the feeding of wildlife because they know how the animals will get. It works the same with people and that’s more than obvious. All the people on the dole, who could be and should be working for their livlihood, get lazy and sit back expecting others to foot the bill for them. In turn, that takes away from the people who really do need help.
    What a mess the government has made of people and their lives.
    Matthew, what are yard apes? I don’t know this term.

    I recently read an article describing the illegal alien Communist from Kenya as a Mindnumbingly Incompetent ,Anti American ,Narcissistic ,Lying Weasel and I thought that just about covers it !!! If so then how would someone with more then 2 brain cells to rub together describe Slippery Joe Biden ??? After much thought on this I decided the best way to describe Slippery Joe Biden was as Biden the Clown
