Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

His "swamp rabbit" moment?

The title of this post hearkens back to those thrilling days of yesteryear in the Carter Administration, when our clueless Commander-in-Chief told a bunch of his staff he'd been attacked by a rabbit while fishing. Here's an article to refresh your memory if it's hard to recall; http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/950/what-was-the-deal-with-jimmy-carter-and-the-killer-rabbit

They didn't believe him (What kind of man is prey for bunnies? Even Pee Wee Herman hasn't had that happen.) so he insisted on showing them the pictures another staff member had made of the event.

How clueless do you have to be to not only relate an incident like that, but insist on showing the proof? Well anyone who lived through those years doesn't need further explanation. If you don't recall Carter's single term in office you can count yourself lucky.

Evidently B.O. has now shown an equal lack of appreciation for doing dumb things in the public eye. He's given a speech to a 6th grade class in Virginia while using a teleprompter. I kid you not, here is the link; http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/slideshow/photo//100119/480/9131bc77c7534185bdbf267bb4ab8497/
I originally came across the item at the Goomba News Network, but discounted it as a photoshop job. Now Drudge is carrying it and Drudge doesn't play those games. The story claims the photo is taken when he speaks to the media after talking to the kids. Noted. How often did G.W. Bush talk to reporters after a school visit? Even if it's true, who needs a scripted response for times like that? At the very least we've a Commander-in-Chief who is always ready to read the cue cards. Disturbing.

So has B.O. had an event similar to Carter's swamp rabbit episode, has he shown himself so inept and naive there is no realization how pathetic a grown man looks giving a speech to junior high students and relying on a teleprompter to do it?

No matter how you slice it, what a fool!

I'm not buying it. I think he used TOTUS to speak to the sixth graders. Yikes! This guy is a joke!

Is it 2012 yet?

I've never been a big fan of George W. Bush...I was never a Republican. However, Obama makes George look smart, and that's really scary.

Regarding the Jimmy Carter attack rabbit story, I never remember hearing that before! I was probably up to my eyeballs in kids at the time and missed it in the news. Thanks for that story, it made me laugh so hard!

I was never a big Jimmy Carter fan, either. I never thought he was evil, just not a good leader. Although after hearing some of his remarks in the last year or so, I have to wonder if he isn't' a bit touched in the head.

Have you ever heard the glib tongued Obama try to speak when he doesn't have his TOTUS around? It is not a pretty sight.

Yes, he may be a great speaker as long as he can read it.

Arby, a very bad joke.

Rick, if only!

Mary Ellen, I lost faith in G.W. a long time ago. Felt his heart was in the right place but in some areas he just didn't "get it". As for B.O., that would be a case where the voters didn't "get it" until after Election Day. Now it's a case of BOHICA 24/7.

As for Carter, I always thought we'd have done better electing his brother.

Rev. Gregori, and all the lapdogs kept happily yapping about what a great speaker he is. Must be some really good Kool-Aid they're drinking!
