MM--the Obama remark was from 2010, and it's Nothing compared to all of Trump's UnPresidential Tweets.  No wonder the GOP is so deeply divided.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is looking to pass on his socialist ideals to teenagers.

 

Inclining teenagers towards socialism is like shooting fish in a barrel.

Bernie Sanders to Release a Book for Kids — Wait Until You See What's Inside

 

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is looking to pass on his socialist ideals to teenagers.

The self-proclaimed democratic socialist is reportedly working on a book for teenagers titled "Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution,” according to Fox News.

Sanders told Teen Vogue his book will “expose them to an unusual political campaign, the excitement of politics and what being a progressive is all about.”

 

Sanders made a splash in the 2016 election by earning more than 2 million votes from people under the age of 30 — more than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton combined. Many of his most enthusiastic supporters were young college students.

***********************************************

This is very appropriate for Bernie's book, I always thought all of his books belonged in the children's section.

Obama: America a Superpower 'Whether We Like It or Not'

Being a superpower ain't all that, at least according to President Obama.

In a little-noticed remark at the close of the two-day nuclear security summit in Washington, D.C., this week, President Obama suggested the United States is somehow burdened by its military might -- a comment that drew a stern rebuke from his former rival in the presidential campaign.

Obama was responding to a question Tuesday about how the summit would play into peace-making efforts in the Middle East when he addressed the downsides of -- by virtue of America's world stature -- being obligated to intervene in international conflicts.

"It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower...

*****************************************

 

Trump gave a national security address last night and sounded Presidential, when Obama gave one he made it sound like we shouldn't even want a military. No wonder terrorists took over all around the world.

NY courts spokesman fired after saying he 'barely' worked

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York state court system's longtime communications chief was fired Thursday after inadvertently telling a reporter that he "barely" went to work at his $166,000-a-year job.

David Bookstaver's firing came a day after the New York Post reported he unwittingly dialed a reporter's voicemail, which captured him conversing with someone else — and acknowledging that he was sloughing off at the office.

"I'm not doing anything. I barely show up to work," Bookstaver said in a part of the recording the newspaper posted online.

The 58-year-old had been planning to retire in October from his communications director job. Instead, he was terminated, chief court spokesman Lucian Chalfen said.

**********************************************

The good news is he can now go out and protest Trump, all of those people seem to barely work as well.

They're too disingenuous to be simple reminders. The posters' habit of not revealing the source nor the date is considered unacceptable by any reasonable standard. Taken together, the posts may be taken as just an extended rant. The snarky little wisecracks at the bottom of the page prove that. What he does can be considered less about the substantive value of the material (it is old news, after all) and more about his own prejudicial views, which are obvious.

 

Yup, in summary, MM's message is "I hate Obama."

 

Okay, Movie Madness, we get your message. We got it a long time ago. You can move on to a new message, if you have one.

 

To continue to flog your ranting hatred of a man on these boards, day after day after day, particularly when that man no longer has any influence on the scene, is obsessive and possibly even a sign of mental health problems (especially when you even nit pick about silly things like his golf game, while ignoring all the time Trump spends on the links which is far more than Obama ever did).

My favorite is where he repeatedly chides Obama for playing golf,

when it appears that Donny will far outdo Obama in that regard.

Just a distraction from Trump's current unpopularity.

Hey, lighten up fella. We're here to inform but that's not what's happening. You defend MM to post ad infinitum, so why not allow others to do the same? At least the "snowflakes" consists of a plurality acting independently, none of whom are engaging in the one wolf (if you will) berserker-mode on a rampage.

 

Informed? It just looks that way. The posts strive for the immediacy of "breaking news" when they are actually years old. One who intends to inform doesn't do that. MM is not informing, he's beating a dead horse.

 

Some people are lost without their pantomime villains of yesteryear.

Right.

 

Post after post after post of saying the same complainy criticism of a member every time he posts something is time far better spent. That makes us all so much better informed.

 

Gawd, what a pack of snowflakes you people are.

There are no rules to prevent him from doing this but there are also no rules to prevent being called out for it either. If this bores you, go for it, we all react differently. For instance, the OP's constant flow of Obama-bashing postings can be seen as irritating to some and downright amusing to others. Overkill can be funny after awhile.

Why do you guys complain so much about mm posting stuff that happened in the past? I don't know how many posts I've seen trying to shame him for posting what's called "old news".

 

But, why? Is it really that painful to be reminded of Obama's (or anyone else's) record? Is it really so important to you guys that you be allowed to forget?

 

Your complainy posts are becoming far more boring than mm's reminders.

No wonder Dark Blue is sympathetic to Movie Madness. He understands only too well the obsession that someone may have with a politician from the past, even though it means dredging up dated old news to make some kind of inane point that only means something to that poster's obsessed mind.

 

Trump is the problem that the world must face today, not Obama or the Clintons. Don't run away or distract from today's issues by hiding in hatreds of the past.

Former President Obama to speak at Economic Club of Chicago in December

Former President Barack Obama will speak to the Economic Club of Chicago in December, the venerable members-only business institution announced Thursday.

Obama is booked as guest speaker for the club's Dec. 5 dinner meeting, with limited guest reservations available.

In addition to business leaders, the Economic Club has brought in some political heavyweights over the years as guest speakers, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, both of whom appeared in 2014.

Speakers this year have included Chicago Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts and renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Founded in 1927, the Economic Club has 1,700 members made up of business and civic leaders.

********************************************

About the only place dumb enough to ask Obama to speak about the economy is Chicago, which is nearly bankrupt.

Obama used a pseudonym in emails with Clinton, FBI documents reveal

President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.

The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.”

In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

 

The interviews provide more insight into Clinton's lack of technical acumen. According to the FBI's Abedin writeup, she "could not use a computer"; Hanley said Clinton had no idea what her own email password was, and had to rely on aides.

***************************************************

Obama was using a fake name when he emailed with Hillary Clinton? And Hillary having no clue how to use computers, lol. She can't drive a car either.
