Quote of the day

It comes fromPresident Obama’sappearance last night onThe Tonight Show. It’s a zinger aimed at Malakatude Hall of Famer, Donald Trump:

“This all dates back to when
we were growing up together in Kenya. We had constant
run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When
we finally moved to America, I thought it would be over.”

    Comes across to me as kind of cutesy. But ever since seeing A’s post on this yesterday I’ve been wondering what the right response would be. Trivializing it like this just might be right. Logical responses or any attempts to placate the Trump on this would definitely be wrong in the political game.
    Slightly OT but ties in with birthers. Saw a chart in the last couple of days that compared support for Romney vs Obama in other countries. Obama is so far ahead it is incredible. I was surprised though to see that while Obama was far ahead of Romney in Kenya, that Obama didn’t get a bounce as a native son. Instead, Obama was far ahead in Kenya, but less ahead than in the other countries listed.

    It’s the only way to respond to it. The Prez is smart to treat the buffoon as the goofball he is. Obama has been President of the United States for almost four years. He’s arguably the most powerful human on earth. He’s happy to engage with almost anyone — but a mediawhore like Trump is just a joke.

    Meanwhile, freepers have moved on to another skirmish. According to a news item, Seems Obama said that kids can cut through the BS.
    Commenters are jumping on that like a pack of wolves. At how unpresidential the statement is. Of course, no statements about how for 4 yeras we’ve been treated to “half-rican”, marxist, socialist, destroying the US. No mention about intentionally disrupting town hall meetings on healthcare. No me ntion that they are still crying for Obama’s birth certificate (an item not called for when a white person ran).
    Thinking of bullies, ever notice how they attract a pack. Seems the pack feels more powerful by association with the bully. Think of the pack that Romney ran. Think of the Limbaugh ditto-heads.
    Thinking of public discourse, it seems to be a game to continually go over the line, but then line up in mass comments if the other side goes anywhere near the line.
