      “when”…

      And “man” might be a stretch, as depicted here is more accurate.

    • Is it just me, or does anyone besides me think that, looking back through the depictions of odabadman, he kind of looks like he’s about half-baked?

      • Pamela

        Delilah

        Half-baked as in somewhat stoned all the time or as in not quite done cooking?

          • Grape

            I think he should be stoned……in the biblical sense.

      • S Hooks

        Delilah, do a search on the terms “Obama Choom Gang”. He has a history from his teen years on up as a heavy user of pot (and pics to support it). I don’t doubt for a second that he’s been “half-baked” often during his term in office.

      Two things lost Hillary the election.

      One was her. From her record, to the “deplorables” thing, to her often disjointed rants about her pet hatred-of-the-day, she was the worst presidential candidate since at least George Wallace, and possibly the worst ever. Even exceeding the general ineptitude of Nixon in 1960.

      The other thing that lost her the election was The One. He kept saying he wanted Hillary as POTUS to “continue our work”, and saying that Trump would “undo everything we’ve done”.

      The One gave the electorate a clear choice, and they took it.

      It just wasn’t the choice he assumed they would take.

      Not only will The One likely go down in the books as the worst POTUS in the nation’s history, he may also go down as being the most oblivious to reality.

      And considering Carter, Clinton, et. al., that’s a significant achievement in itself.

      Not one you really want on your resume’, though.

        That and she simply did not cheat well enough to win.

        • John

          That level of cheating would have been an accomplishment in itself considering how she railroaded her nomination by way of the “Super Delegates”. And we still don’t know, and may never know, just how many bogus votes she got.

      • JTC

        And two things won Trump the election.

        Hillary was running.

        Obama wasn’t.

        I am sitting here now almost physically sick, having just written that.

    • Old Codger

      And he probably WOULD have mobilized Americans – just not when and how he thought. If he had run again or if Hildamort had won they would have mobilized Americans TO RISE UP IN REBELLION!!! I really believe there would have been a full-on insurrection.

      JTC, what really stopped Obozo from running again. Presidential term limits have never – to the best of my knowledge – been tested. What would have happened if he had stood for re-election and the Dems had attempted to place his name on the ballot in the several states? If the Dems had presented the nation with a fait accompli, whether it followed the Constitution or not, what then? Could the various state authorities have refused to allow the Dems to do that? Lawsuits to get Obozo’s name on the ballot should have been a slam dunk considering how liberal most judges are. And there would certainly have been riots if any judge chose NOT to allow Dear Leader’s name on the ballot.

      Here’s my question. Short of revolution, what mechanisms exist if a sitting president decides on his own to ignore all or part of the Constitution? What mechanism exists to evict a president who, in essence, says “Hell no! I won’t go!”? Yes, it would undoubtedly precipitate a “constitutional crisis” (whatever THAT is/might be) but so what? What then? You know hoards of “liberals” would be dancing in the streets if Dear Deader elected to stay in office.

      WHAT THEN?

      • OC, untested so who knows? It’s not like the Constitution has been any barrier for anything else for that group.

        But what he said was, he could mobilize. Double meaning because he did mobilize for Trump’s election, and I think in many ways he sabotaged the beast (as if her self-sabotage wasn’t enough).

        But had he run, Constitutionally or not, I don’t doubt for a minute he would have been elected. Would there have been an insurrection? Absolutely. And it would have been bloody. Not to say that still might not happen if the leftists, progs, rinos, media, academia, and hollyweird (multi-redundant but all of them don’t equal the deplorables) get what they *think* they want.

  • Oddly, from what I read, the “Lawn Jockey” was not a racist symbol, but actually an anti-slavery decoration, the colors they were painted were coded for the services available to the underground railroad (kinda like Hobo signs.)

  • Oh. My. Dog. The plaster lantern-holding lawn jockey????? Wow! That is SOOOOOO 1930s! I haven’t seen one of those in half a century! Seriously.

    • My girlfriend has one on her lawn. It’s painted like a stereotypical Chinaman. (She’s a Vietnamese boatlift refugee, and she hates the Chinese!)

      • Kafiroon

        My grandfather had a black boy sitting with a fishing bamboo on his front porch. In the sixties, he painted the “skin” areas pale “pink”. It is repainted “original” hiding in my daughters fenced back yard.

      Plenty of them still around in the 60s in the northern suburbs of Chicago.

    Chris,

    This is the beauty of hosting your own site. If I would put something like this on Google they would probably soon shut me down.

    Take care

      8200 square feet. Within walking distance of a huge mosque. Quiet neighborhood. $6.4 million value. Renting for $22,000 per month. 2 miles to the White House. John Podesta lives in the neighborhood

      The Obamas own a two-story, 6,199-square-foot house on Greenwood Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.

      I don’t know who is paying for it. The Obamas should get the bill. Who pays the Obamas is the question.

      • Deplorable B Woodman

        And O’Bozo has the nerve to bitch about “the rich not paying their fair share of taxes”. He is the personification of the 1% of the 1%. I wonder what his filed income tax reports say, and how much does HE pay?

        “Laws for thee, but not for me.”

        I wonder if one could get close enough to the house to get away with water balloons / paint balloons, and other irritations? Or would the SecServ chase you down?

        • It would be much more satisfying to find that he’s being completely ignored.

          • John

            Being forgotten would be a most fitting end for him.

      • Pamela

        It’s got a turret. Seriously?
        They going to be keeping a pet dragon out back?

          Ummm. They got one. Her.

          • Pamela

            Whoa! They’ve got the Hildabeast chained in the backyard…

      • Wonder what the slave quarters look like. They will have to house a full Secret Service detail. We taxpayers had to build a guest house for the Clinton’s in New York for their detail. We get to pay for that security for them for the rest of his life. Trump will have Secret Service protection for 10 years after he leaves office. They changed the law so Obama is the last lifetime protectee.

        • Arkelk

          Secret service protection for lifetime and for a period years has gone back and forth over the different Administrations and Congresses. Nixon dismissed his after a number of years as he said they weren’t needed. I don’t know about the others.

          • thundercloud65

            Carter turned down SS protection. Most assassins are Leftists and the Left loved him.

        • gafling

          I would not lose any sleep should one of the SS boys have an attack of patriotism and put a .40 cal thru each of Zero’s eyeballs … sometime next summer would be OK.

          Nope … no lost sleep at all.

  • Iconoclast

    It’s so heart-breakingly sad this truly reflects the tenor of this ‘presidency’ on domestic policy / American society. Never mind the waste, the catastrophic level squandered treasure, the damage to our healthcare, economy, energy resources, etc. What an unmitigated horrific disaster this regime has been ….

  • KenH

    Obama took everyone in the wrong direction. Obama destroyed so much that was good about this nation and transformed too much of it. Hopefully not permanently. He has a lot of people hacked off and he destroyed so much of society and income while he was at it.
    He followed the classic Marxist effort to tear down what is there so that “they”(not us) can rebuild from the rubble. Obama does not count on Americans finally getting it, including the white guys.
    Here is one
    http://iotwreport.com/gavins-new-years-resolution-reminding-himself-that-white-guys-are-awesome/

    Trump did not have to be white to do what he did. It just meant that more voters understood him. It has cost us and the world tremendously, but another day always dawns, especially when good people put themselves into it.
    It is amazing that Obama had decided that he could do what he wished to do to reshape the world and the country in a manner so against the wishes of the people. But that is how government has been acting for the most part since the 1960’s.
    But is Obama after all is said and done, just a lawn jockey for the globalists?

    • Pamela

      He has nothing to do with leading those enslaved to Freedom.
      He is responsible for people being enslaved, responsible for people becoming homeless, without hope and without a country. He carries the blood of many on his hands. Blood which never will wash off.
      May his food taste of ash, and his dreams be visited of those who perished because of his ego.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Marxists have never gotten past the death, destruction and disaster tear down part. Then they get control and some keep the control.
        Obama is cursed for all eternity.

      There’s an old book titled “Heroes, Villains, and Fools; The Changing American Character” by Orrin Clapp;

      https://www.amazon.com/Heroes-Villains-Fools-Changing-Character/dp/1412853583

      My copy is old, hardbacked, with a pink cover with caricatures of a Harlequin and a Snidley Whiplash type on it.

      The book describes and defines different types of “good guys” and “bad guys” that have evolved in fact and fiction.

      Jimmy Carter fit Clapp’s description of a Well-Meaning Fool. To a certain extent, so did George W. Bush.

      Ronald Reagan was more-or-less a straight Hero. His final battle with Alzheimer’s made him a Tragic Hero.

      Al Gore was neither a fool or a hero. He was an Over-Educated Idiot.

      The One was, and is, the Comic Villain. He wants to Do the Evil Thing, because he is On A Crusade. But somehow, he keeps falling over his own feet.

      The classic cinematic example is Jack Lemmon as “Professor Fate” in The Great Race (1965), although by the end the audience is less laughing at the hapless professor than feeling sorry for him. I can’t imagine anyone ever feeling sorry for The One; he’s simply too obnoxious.

      NB; It’s clear at the end of the film that Fate’s big problem with The Great Leslie (Tony Curtis) is that he wants to be likehim, and knows he can never achieve it. The One is too much of a narcissist to ever feel that way- everyone else is “below” him, in his mind.

      As for Hillary- she’s the Unredeemable Villain. The one who does evil things for the sheer pleasure of hurting people. It’s a rare character in fiction; probably only the Overlords of Delgon in E.E. “Doc” Smith’s Lensman novels are fairly well-known examples of this.

      As for Trump, whether he will be a Hero, a Villain, or simply a Fool, only time will tell.

      That’s just IMHO, take it for what it’s worth.

      • Bill G

        Al Gore merely an Over-Educated Idiot?
        I disagree sharply with that assessment. I see him as a Villain. He wished to become rich enough to make Bill Gates look like a piker with money forced out of our hands at the point of a Government Gun as we bought Carbon Offsets and other meaningless things from his companies.
        That’s how I see his involvement with AGW.

        • eon

          AlGore From The Planet Eco is a nearly perfect example of Brian Aldiss’ definition of a science fiction story plot; Hubris Clobbered By Nemesis.

          In his case, Nemesis took the form of blizzard conditions showing up everywhere that he made an appearance to preach about global warming. Even Florida and Hawaii.

          Add in the fact that practically every one of his carbon-credit “get rich quick” schemes ended up with the “investors” taking a bath, and he’s practically Joe Btfsplk from Lil’ Abner;

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Btfsplk

          Although I agree he’s dangerously deranged. In 1992, when he was on the short list for Bill Clinton’s running mate, the DNC did a standard background check on him, and noted that he was an “environmental extremist” who regarded failing to recycle aluminum cans as a worse crime than the Holocaust.

          Bil Clinton picked him anyway. Which either means that Bill Clinton is about 30% stupider than previously thought, or the other prospects were even more batshit crazy than Gore.

          I call the odds six-five and pick ’em.

          • AlGore’s ‘problem’, aside from greed and stupidity, is the same problem the others have: tunnel vision. Can’t see past the object, see only the object itself, which in Gore’s case is greed and pocket-lining. But he’s the stereotype and odabadman is his doppelganger.

    • JTC

      “…is Obama after all is said and done, just a lawn jockey for the globalists?”

      Yes. Not as a true symbol of the hope and help that Pamela mentioned, but as a cruel lure to make the sheeple believe it…for what ends we can only speculate. But make no mistake, while the Obama jockey will soon be gone, the powers of evil that you call the globalists will not be…they will be back with a newer better ruse to achieve those ends, whatever they may be.

      And Trump? We might think of him as a lawn jockey with weird hair, but in the mold of Pamela’s and Doc Mauser’s historical references…a sign that there is truly hope, and help for those that will help themselves.

      Just as Zero was the leftist’s public face, DT is ours. This is a people’s revolt; history may well end up judging Trump’s captaining of it as Heroic, or Foolish. But it will be us who will determine which it will be.

  • Pete231

    “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity”. MLKjr. sure had duhbama pegged. BTW, is the LJ wearing 501 Mom stone washes ?

  • As to demoncraps and the Klan…?

    • NotYetInACamp

      Good look at that in Hillary’s America the secret History of the democrat Party by Dinesh D’Souza. D’Souza is an Indian immigrant who was jailed for illegal campaign contributions. He may be the only one. He was prosecuted so vigorously because he made a prior movie about Obama that was very effective and truthful. Some hits and misses in the movie, but very on point as to the jail society that the USA has become as global conditioning and slaver methods have had effect.
      (The current klans have been purely a tool created by the government to create show trials and manufactured criminals by encouragement. Government informants have penetrated and guided them for decades.

    Ummmm….

    Stepin Fetchit is going to have to Stepin Fetchit.

    • Arkelk

      As an aside on Stepin’ Fetchit, he played some of the worst of the stereotype, as about the only black actor in movies, and if I remember correctly, made a good living at it. I have always been impressed at those who beat the odds the way he (and a lot of the early black/Negro [used respectfully, that was the term back then] actors and actresses and musicians) did.

    I hope that the light that he brings will not be the light from the Tall Man of Smoke nodding his hat over U.S. cities.

    Just occurred to me, Prez Trump’s first wall building project needs to be around the JEF’s residence. Forget the secret service, just station a few troops around the perimeter with orders to not let anyone cross the wall in either direction.

  • Before you all get too excited about where obdabadman is going to live, he went off to Hawaii at Christmas, paid the token visit to the military peeps based there (said it was his ‘greatest privilege’ to be their president) and is most likely going to stay there until winter is over. There is no requirement, after all, for him to show up at Trump’s inauguration.
    It would be nice if Trump quoted part of JFK’s speech from 1960.

  • Arkelk

    Delilah, the main local paper in Honolulu is expecting him to leave. His vacationing here is a mixed bag, and many of the locals resent all the traffic tie-ups that he causes and, at least in the past, his general aloofness from local businesses.

    While I’m on things in Hawaii, Prime Minister Abe from Japan is striking all the right notes so far, and has paid respects to the dead at a couple of places already, and later today (the 27th) will go to the Arizona Memorial. HE is doing everything right (assuming that all his statements are similar to his actions, which they probably are) on this visit.

  • EagleRising

    With apologies to Diogenes, this is a perfect depiction of Obama looking for someone else to blame.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Now that is a funny thought, and accurate.

    It sure is unfortunate that the japanese PM couldn`t wait until
    the 76th anniversary of their attack on Pearl Harbor to visit.

    Maybe pseudo-science climate changy guy can have these genes spliced into everyone in the Northern areas so that they can deal with it when it gets cold and the people have had energy removed from their allowed usage.
