Obama is on Fire, Just Like Rick Perry’s Home State

In The Bay Area of all places, Obama was doing a fundraiser when the subject of the Republican presidential debates came up. Los Angeles Times, take it from here:

President Obama, speaking at a fundraiser in the Bay Area on Sunday night, said the behavior at the Republican presidential debates was at odds with core American values.

“Has anybody been watching the debates lately?” the president said at the home of John Thompson, chairman of Symantec.

In a reference to the GOP front-runner, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Obama said: “You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It’s true.”

“You’ve  got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare and booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay.

“That’s not reflective of who we are,” Obama said.

When I finished reading this article, I laughed to myself, and then thought, god, won’t it be really fucking awesome if he just keeps going like this? This is How He Lives, Several Outstanding Fucks to Give. Now that we’ve recognized that the job creators aren’t creating jobs and proposed “The Buffet Rule,” things are looking, as I think I said earlier this week, increasingly rad.

Obama made four campaign stops yesterday — two in Seattle, the Bay Area visit and then to Silicon Valley, where Lady Gaga attended as a paying guest, wearing very tall shoes. Today, he’s expected to cause a traffic jam in West Hollywood later today, where he’s going to attend a fundraiser at The House of Blues (but probably he just really wants to be on The Real L Word).

    So glad you’ve brought this to my attention. The political atmosphere has been so toxic that I’ve been avoiding it for the most part.

    I need to be reminded that there are some positives out there.

    I like this Obama with fucks to give.

    I would be way more stoked if Obama wasn’t about to make our country out to be a hypocritical joke in front of the entire world by vetoing Palestine’s bid in the UN to be a full member nation.
    And I apologize now for bringing up such a controversial and intense issue, I’ve just been reading too much about it and needed to vent somewhere that hopefully won’t result in the entire internet crashing down on me :)

    obama is a fucking joke and so are all of you if you like him, or still fall victim to republican versus democrat.

    both groups are the same and you’re all so gulible, obama resigned the fuckin patriot act, obama comes to california to talk shit about his friends! its a fuckin trick! they all work for the major CEOs and BANKSTERS.

    CLIMATE GATE – ITS BEEN PROVEN WRONG THE SOFTWARE THAT THEESE PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS USE IS ALL FLAWED ITS BEEN PROVEN, THE CORPORATIONS ARE DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO CREATE TEMPERARY CHANGES TO THE OZONE TO GIVE THE APPEARANCE OF GLOBAL WARMING SO WE CAN PAY REDICULOUS TAXES TO AL GORES COMPANY, “BLOOD AND GORE”. LOOK IT UP AND DO SOME FUCKIN RESEARCH BEFORE YOU IDIOTS FUCK OUR WHOLE BANKRUPT COUNTRY OVER.

    man im glad all u clueless obama fans dont have any real power, just like im happy the real bush fans didnt either,

    you guys analyze situations in 5 seconds and feel like you can make judgements in the snap of a finger based on your emotions! (a trait learned from jersey shore no doubt) AND ITS FUCKIN OUT COUNTRY OVER. go do somne damn research or keep ur mouths fuckin shut!!!

    dont think coming on here hudled around obama is gonna do anything except rape our whole country. do ur research, follow where the money goes…

    obama, bush, gore, none of these people are on your side al gore has one of the biggest carbon footprints in the world, is HE turning off his electricty? HELL NO.

    everyone wonders where america gets their bad rep? its from the majority of fanboys who like obama simply because hes black, or like other things “simply” – instead of doing research,
    obama could drop nukes on all of your houses 2morr, and as long as he turned around and blamed the damn republicans you idiots would fall strait for it!!!

    look around wake up, stop being inside the stupid “masses of america” as the rest of the world views u guys!

    “That’s not reflective of who we are,” Obama said.

    Maybe I’m just cynical from being stranded in some of the reddest of red states for most of my life, but I think he’s wrong. It most definitely *shouldn’t* be reflective of what America in general is like, but at this point it kind of is. Sure, there are plenty of us that dissent, but there are more (and more powerful) people who agree with it. And even more who don’t give a fuck at all.

    I’m exhuasted even thinking about the upcoming campaign year.
