Day By Day


  • History is a fairy tale that men agree upon. —- Napoleon

    • nonncom

      Napoleon was a prophet who could foresee that history would not look on him kindly….

    • What that ignoramous-in-chief is most ignorant of is history itself.

  • Pamela

    No need to insult a bag of hammers

    A careful stampede is in order me thinks…maybe with some righteous riders clad in armour

    • Lon Mead

      Yay. Our Leader-From-Behind-in-Chief proves once again that he’s a history-tard.

      Pretty sad… a friend of mine was at that breakfast, and noted that it was kind of depressing that when the President of the United States (supposedly the most brilliant speaker ever, the smartest guy to ever enter the Oval Office, etc., etc.,…) gave his speech, it was pretty much the low point of an otherwise inspiring event.

      • Mister B

        I am going to refer to Obama as “The Hindmost” from now on. Apologies to SF author Larry Niven.

        • Insomniac

          And let the Devil take The Hindmost.

        • nonncom

          I will always know him affectionately as o’shithead, the Muslim who, like the devil, convinced people he did not exist….

        • markm

          The Hindmost was the leader of a herd of herbivores. That part fits. But it still gives Obama too much credit. The reason the Hindmost led from behind was to protect the herd from trailing carnivores; his natural weapon was a deadly backwards kick.

          • Gyro

            Actually, The Hindmost led from the rear because that’s where the smartest and sanest Puppeteer would stay, putting the entire herd between him and the threat.

    • Lon Mead

      Oh, and I was going to point out that a bag of hammers is potentially useful.

      • Larry J

        In the hands of a skilled tradesman, a hammer can be used to build civilization. In the hands of a thug, a hammer becomes a weapon for murder and destruction.

    • Snafu F. Ubar

      “No need to insult the bag of hammers.”
      Second that.

      Taqiyya Man holds the highest office in the land.

    • Chris in N.Va.

      And if Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac had a hammer it would look like….

      …..a lace doily?

      • B Woodman

        I like that. Ozymandias. It fits.

        • Immanuel Goldstein


      • Bunkerbuilder

        What will be Obozamais’s Titanic sized monument to be? Or is it already built– the 15 trillion $($15,000,000,000,000.00) of borrowing??? Or is his reign to end in the funeral pyre of tens of millions of dead in a Fifth Crusade that he fathered(this century’s Neville Chamberlain)?

        If the great wall of China and the pyramids hadn’t been built, would we now be spread out amongst the planets or even the stars…..

  • Grunt GI

    Well, clearly Obama was a product of public schools…where history has become “social studies” whatever the hell that is…and the Christians are always the bad guys….

    Could be about the most stupid speech he has ever given…and that’s saying something.

    Thank goodness Jan’s fine “assets” offer some distraction?

    Think she might show up to go skinny dipping’ in the pond?


    • RegT

      Obama was a product of madrassas and Marxst/Leninist indoctrination. Far worse than even the worst of the Common Core tripe children are subjected to these days.

      No doubt with a large helping of “touchy-feely” from his short-eyed mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Obama certainly had numerous introductions to the “bathhouse culture” of Chicago and elsewhere.

      • B Woodman

        “No doubt with a large helping of “touchy-feely” from his short-eyed FATHER, Frank Marshall Davis.”
        There. FIxed it for ya. You’re welcome.

  • Calvin

    Obama is a product of Indonesian schools and Hawaiian prep schools.

    • Grunt GI

      Sigh…true…that would explain so much…I’m sure that Indonesian school said those Christians were EVIL for wanting their land back that the Mohammedans had rightfully stolen. Sort of a 7th Century version of wealth redistribution.

      And of course, all TRUE Progressives “know” that all religions are equally evil…part of their world view of moral relativism and subjective truth.

      Argh…the idiocy is overwhelming…

  • B Woodman

    Yep. Muzzies are killing because Parisians are unarmed — by Gubbment law. No Constitutional rights needed here.

  • Alaska Paul

    King Abdullah of Jordan has been showing leadership in this Crisis with ISIS. Maybe we should have a twofer. Invite Netanyahu and Abdullah to each present a speech to a joint session of Congress and show O&Co how real men face national existential problems.

    • eon

      His Majesty (Abdullah, not The One) knows that his country’s survival, and his personal survival and that of his family, are on the line.

      The One is convinced that ISIS and other Islamic groups will only exterminate people he doesn’t like, anyway.

      Sort of the same assumption Neville Chamberlain made about a certain failed Austrian landscape artist.

      The difference is that a modern Dunkirk would have The One cheering for the other side. Reality simply never intrudes upon the fantasy universe in his head.

      As Colin Wilson once said of Nero, if he were an average citizen, say a small business owner, The One would be eccentric but by and large harmless.

      But as the leader of a major world power (us), he’s an unmitigated disaster.



      • SAR-NOW

        Sorry … “unmitigated disaster” is far higher praise than this Fifth Columnist drone deserves. Sure wish it were to develop a brief, yet exceedingly intimate, appreciation of the power of a lightning strike.

  • BCE56

    Invaded by Muslims is one thing. Infected by them (i.e. immigration)
    is somewhat different…

    BTW, thanks for a Top-Notch strip, Chris.
    Keep up the good work.

    Carry on, sir!

  • DocWahala

    700 years ago, the Progs were blaming the Crusades on the burning Bush.

      • Pamela

        If I read that family tree correctly, the line of descent is from surviving Female offspring, not a surviving Male.

  • Wayne M

    There is a difference between dumb and ignorant but that doesn’t mean you can’t be both.

  • Hb

    Ozero isn’t dumb…nor is his Rasputin—Valerie Jarrett.

    Never forget that.

    Read Dominatus—by D W Ulsterman as well as his Mac Walker books….for a possible view into our future.

    ISIS is created, funded and supported by the above two — with help from Mideast and other “interested” parties….that’s why ambassador Stephens and his protectors were allowed to be murdered.

    And our valiant republicans snooze and roll over on a daily basis.

    • finebammer

      “And our valiant republicans snooze and roll over on a daily basis.”

      well, didn’t you hear our valiant boehner???

      he was tea party before tea party was cool!!


    • finebammer

      and check the strategically positioned bimbo to carter’s right. think that’s an accident??? or a message??

      • Bad Cyborg

        Are you talking about the one in the blue dress? Like to see HER in a Wicked Weasel. Gal’s got a nice rack on her – AND she’s proud of it.

  • Dienekes

    Deus vult.

  • Awesome, as usual. The answer to the lie in two frames.

  • Robert Lowell

    A bag of hammers? How about a hammer? Better still a empty bag–Air head?

    • Insomniac

      Hammers are actually useful.

  • Bill G

    None are as blind as he who will not see.
    The left refuses to see that jihadists hate them and would happily exterminate them all.

    • Gyro

      They understand that. They think they’ll be able to control them once they’ve used them for their ends. Iranian communists made the same mistake with the mullahs in the late 70s when they used them to get rid of the Shah. Turned out that 7th century mullahs were more ruthless than 20th century commies.

  • Bill

    A bag of hammers. A tool. Every thing he sees is a nail. I hope these don’t turn out to be nails in our coffin.

  • Robert Arvanitis

    With Obama we must reverse Hanlon’s Razor: “Never attribute to stupidity that which is adequately explained by malice.”

  • Guitanguran

    An insult to hammers everywhere.

  • JTC

    Very well-rounded commentary. Damon’s was good too.

  • interventor

    Martel means hammer. Charles Martel, the hammer, scourge of the moors.

  • Patrick Dennis

    What he said was, β€œβ€¦during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” Dispute the relevance or historical context, but it’s a true statement.

  • While everyone else in this thread is commenting on Obama, King Abdullah, The Crusades, hammers, etc… I prefer to comment on the fine ass-ets of Jan. πŸ˜‰

    • Chris Muir

      πŸ™‚ I believe in scenery, and sometimes words ‘n stuff.

      • And my scenery now includes a tea-sprayed computer monitor. πŸ˜€ Thanks, Chris! LOL

    • JTC

      So Trubador, you’re saying I was a little too subtle a few comments back?

  • Don’t go too heavy on defending the crusades. They’re too broad a category of human behavior stretched out across time and space. The sacking of Constantinople in 1204 was not a good thing. The Pope was right to apologize for it.
