The media have not bothered to mention some of the more “rude and crude” comments our esteemed “Genius in Chief” Barry has made over the past couple of years. Lines such as, “If they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun,” or, “Republicans should sit in the back of the bus,” or his remark that middle class white Americans “cling to guns and religion and dislike of people who are different,” or, most recently, his shocking comment to Hispanics that they should look at Republicans who oppose amnesty as their “enemies” whom they should “punish.” Naturally, the media do not suggest that Obama has been planting hatred of white conservatives in the hearts of liberals and minorities.
Obama didn’t actually say that Republicans should sit “in the back of the bus,” but that was his plain meaning. HeÂ said last October: “We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.”To which a blogger responded, “Rosa Parks could not be reached for comment.”

Sheriff Dipshit screwed up big. No wonder he needs a scapegoat:
Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has done more than almost anyone else to blame the heated political rhetoric (hint: Sarah Palin and the Right) for inspiring Jared Loughner to shoot congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
But it’s not just inappropriate for an investigator to leap to such conclusions, but alsoÂ against all the evidence. What could be his motive for doing something so extraordinarily unprofessional?
Blogger The Cholla Jumps suggests the sheriff needs a scapegoat:
Lets hear it once again from the Marxist Muslim POTUS himself:
** Obama:Â “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers:Â “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs:Â “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army:Â “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time toÂ Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’mÂ itching for a fight.”
If the media really wants to improve theÂ “caustic political climate” they may want to start at the White House.
