Here are some Twitter messages I saw today from Change_for_Iran, a pro-Mousavi Iranian student, and Mark Knoller, CBS News White House Correspondent:

Given the hard-hitting journalism on the coverage on what is going into the president’s pie hole, I can’t wait for the tweets on coverage on the other side:

“Obama has well formed BM. Three wipes. No smell!”

“Polished turd”?

Del Dolemonte on June 21, 2009 at 10:55 AM

I weep for those who could not have possibly gone the whole day without knowing what the Obama Family had for dessert.

Life and death struggles occur in one of the most problematic countries on the planet, and we call all see where the priorities are bewteen the administration and its willing hand maidens in the MSM.

This Twitter traffic is by no means the exception, but more like the norm. Journalism died last year, and now we are seeing its zombified corpse in action.

Really Stupid

So nice to see Mark Knoller has all this spare time on his hands to cover what B.O. and his daughters had at the nice ice cream shop.

Maybe Mark Knoller should find better things to do with his time…like hold a real job.

Not that Obama has anything better to do, you know president of the free world and all while Iranians’s are starting a revolution, blood in their streets, riots, waiting for support from the FREE WORLD.

You get the point?

dthorny on June 21, 2009 at 12:19 PM

I’m surprised the protesters haven’t started shooting back already…

Small problem. Unlike this country where we have the right to have guns (at least until 0bama tries to take them like other fascist have done), most of the Iranian populace does not have firearms. This is a perfect example of why the founding fathers included the second amendment in the bill of rights. For those on the left who tend not to acknowledge its existence.. it states A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Other than President Reagan the white house has been inhabited (during the 20th century) by a steady stream of progressives. We have managed to keep the fascists out until now. The problem is that all the progressive crap we’ve been fed has set us up for the rise of fascism in this country. I don’t blame the politicians. They are what they are. I blame us for taking our eye off the golden prize of freedom and focusing on the chrome veneer of “social justice”. We have sinned against liberty and Ogabe is our unjust dessert.

Some perspective.

I agree with your statement about the second amendment. Reading James Madison and the others provides a very clear picture of why that amendment was the second one they crafted.

Don’t be so sure that the Iranian people are unarmed though. A lot of munitions flow across the borders in those countries.

dogsoldier on June 21, 2009 at 2:05 PM

Yeah Canada wasn’t in WWI or WWII or Korea or Afghanistan or etc etc etc.

Dave Rywall on June 20, 2009 at 11:51 PM

Canada might have been, but you weren’t.

Obama. He’s colder than an iced confection.

The Iranians are leading the way folks. We must show them solidarity by voicing our dissent with our own non-representative ‘gov’t’ that is using soft tyranny now, but may need to do something more serious when a serious protest hits DC.

First, Obama ignored the uprising over the fraudulent Iranian election, then he said that he didn’t want to ‘meddle’, but after the protesters in front of the WH made enough noise to get his attention, THEN he used ‘tough’ words on the regime…
I know there are many here that think Barry Whosane is a *legit POTUS…Well, he ain’t and he knows it. This makes his reactions even more understandable. He can relate to lil Amadingdong. I hope he’s paying attention because a massive protest is coming to DC…

*Here’s more evidence that BO was born in Kenya, (this is aside from the disqualification of having only one American parent). It’s from a poster at Constitutional Emergency:
“This morning I faxed (DC) a letter written by John Hemenway to Robert Gibbs about the eligiblity issue as well as the minutes from the Kenyan Parliament on November 5, 2008, in which they state no fewer than 6 times that Obama was born there.”
Google it if you agree with Shep Smith but have opened your mind just a tad. Ah, but who trusts the Kenyan Parliament?

Christine on June 21, 2009 at 3:46 PM

Oh yeah…we’re all ‘laffing’. Isn’t that just so cute?

Tone deaf asshole.

capitalist piglet on June 21, 2009 at 5:36 PM

Sorry to repost from another thread, but it seemed apropos.

Dear World,

Due to circumstances beyond the control of conservative Americans, we are no longer getting involved in unjust or evil situations that involve the death of innocents. Our new President has brought in the age of self indulgence based on minority identification, so you are on your own.

We are self absorbed with infanticide, making cars, redefining marriage, making up scientific nonsense like global warming and other self abasing idiocy. George Bush is no longer here to fight your battles.

As we struggle to to give rich minorities greater power, we ask you to please contact the U.N for all your emergencies. Hope and change, and fist bumps to ya’ll.

The USA

Hening on June 21, 2009 at 6:19 PM

This is unbeleivably cheesy. There is nothing that the Obama administration can do about the current situation in Iran except be quite. Anything they say could be used as a pretext to convince Iranians that the revolt is being fomented by the U.S. Besides no matter what, it not like we want to support Mousavi in all of this. That’s the guy who started the Iranian nuclear program.

There is tons to pick on Obama about. We have a socialist turning this country into a trash heap, I Don’t give a crap aout him taking his kids out for ice Cream or his wife out for dinner.

Sasha is going to have as big a butt as her momma if she keeps that up!

ctmom on June 21, 2009 at 8:11 PM

“You’re gonna laff…”

Is Knoller’s mental drooling typical of Twitter?

If so, then recent my statement that, “I don’t care if Jesus himself had a Twitter page I wouldn’t follow it,” was well founded.

To be fair, Laura Bush has quite a spread too. Bonus – she’s crazy!

simplesimon on June 21, 2009 at 9:22 PM

In what way do you feel that Laura Bush is crazy?

adagioforstrings on June 21, 2009 at 10:07 PM

Simplesimon, me thinks you’re a troll. And a creep.

Obama has no decency. He could have had someone at the White House whip up something for the hound, the girls & himself. But noooo. The messiah needed his photo op, at taxpayer expense.

Personally, I couldn’t eat a thing yesterday, because all I saw was the blood in Neda’s eyes.

I sure wonder if he’s taking notes about this revolution in Iran.

freakinlibs on June 21, 2009 at 10:09 PM

adagioforstrings on June 21, 2009 at 10:07 PM

She’s “crazy” because liberals say she is. See how that works?

capitalist piglet on June 21, 2009 at 11:43 PM

It’s pretty interesting that Mark Knoller is the go to guy for statistics on how many golf games Bush played or how much time he spent away from the White House.

from the “article”:

Number Of Times President Bush Had Dinner Out At A Restaurant: 21

In 8 years? That’s just over 2.5 times a year. Or barely even once a months. Barry’s on pace to shatter that number in his first year.

Number Of Out Of Town Domestic Trips: 609
Works out to 4 a month over 8 years. Again, Barry will shatter that in his first term

National Debt Increase: $4.9 trillion.

Only took Barry 5 months to surpass this.

Number Of Rounds Of Golf Played As President: 24
(The last one on Oct. 13, 2003. President Bush has since explained that he stopped playing golf out of respect for the families of Americans killed in the war in Iraq.)

Well, Barry’s already proven nothing will prevent him from exceeding this number.

W didn’t take Laura out for ice cream on September 12, 2001, or play golf either. No, he did that sort of thing when things were relatively quiet.

Bozo Hussein just doesn’t care. Not a whit. He only thinks of HIMSELF. Insincere statements of his concern driven by polls are like throwing gas on a fire.

dogsoldier on June 22, 2009 at 8:07 AM

Did Obama and his daughters run into A-Rod at the ice cream shop?

Jeff from WI on June 22, 2009 at 9:20 AM

Obama MUST be on the golf course. America MUST keep it’s lead in golfing scores for the state primary executive.
We must NOT lose face to the Japanese, Chinese or the British.

Jeff from WI on June 22, 2009 at 10:25 AM

Wait a minute. Spitting blowhard Mike Gallagher has been knocking this post all day on his radio show. You see, that’s something the left would do. We shouldn’t do something like this; showing a picture of Obama getting ice cream next to the one with the Iranian woman dying. You see, Mike is focused on the important things, like not stooping low like a lefty would. He’s an idiot.
