Fore More Years + open thread

Now this is my kind of fundraising email — good humor and stats:

[QUOTING EMAIL] Between his “official” and “nonpolitical” visits to swing states, the President found time to play another 18 holes this weekend. As millions of Americans continue to struggle to find work, President Obama has now played a total of 1,710 holes since taking office. That’s 95 rounds of golf.

A lot of Americans have had to make sacrifices these last four years. We would expect our President to do the same.

Donate $18 to help send Barack Obama on a permanent golf vacation: fortyfore.com

    Obama is quoted as saying it’s “his government” as regards his stated intent to ignore Congress.
    Hello, Sonny, it’s OUR government.  You’re just a temporary tenant of the White House and you’re only place in history will be as a political science case study in how to fail at taking over a country.
    I hope he keeps it up because he is scaring the living daylights out of people and he seems deaf to the effect he’s having.  The more desperate the administration becomes, the more outrageous their statements and actions.  They’re like a kid on rollerskates, going downhill.  They can’t stop!

       When will liberals figure out that it is themselves that they hate?

      That’s what he gets from dues from hardworking average union workers. How much more does he make from doze udder guys – ya know – the Tony Soprano types?

     In a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup, presumptive Republican nominee
    Mitt Romney earns 47% of the vote, while President Obama attracts
    support from 44%.

    Looks like Obama`s voters are leaving.

     

    For first time since Depression, more Mexicans leave U.S. than enter

    A four-decade tidal wave of Mexican immigration to the United States
    has receded, causing a historic shift in migration patterns as more
    Mexicans appear to be leaving the United States for Mexico than the
    other way around, according to a report from the Pew Hispanic Center.

    It looks to be the first reversal in the trend since the
    Depression, and experts say that a declining Mexican birthrate and other
    factors may make it permanent.

      Obama TOLD us he could solve the illegal immigration problem without building a wall.  And his solution was brilliant.  Make our economy so jobless and unattractive that even a place as screwed up and corrupt as Mexico looks better than the US.  I tell you, Obama is a genious!

    • KenoshaMarge

      Who was it who talked about illegals self-deporting and was laughed at for it? Hmm

    • Flop_Flipper

      I’m cynical enough to entertain the possibility that this is nothing more than MSM WH talking points propaganda. It sort of takes illegal immigration off the table by implying its a problem taking care of itself.

      Curious questions: Do you think the Rubio DREAM Act will become a party platform? If not, or even if it does, do you think that there is an intentional push by the GOP to take on the illegal immigration issue during the election to woo Hispanics? Or at the very least demonstrate that they aren’t intolerant racists?

      Personally, I’d like to see him munching grasshoppers. Michelle could promote it as a green alternative to big bad pesticides. Be a great photo op in her garden.

        Found this yesterday and thought I’d share it with you.  This topic has taken on a life of its own, and I have to say I’m thoroughly enjoying it

        • KenoshaMarge

          Guess he had some “splainin” to do.

  • alicewolf

    Seems like he’s on it already.

  • Anthony_1

    Brilliant!  I hope his bundlers keep up the good work.

  • MissMalevolent

    Pretty funny.

    I gladly support Romney.  This is a great, even subtle fundraising ad approach.

  • Retired_from_SPOnaj

    OT, but:  I finally have something positive to say about Obama’s performance as President.  The American economy is so shitty under his leadership that illegal immigrants are deserting America and going back to Mexico for want of jobs.

    Who says that NQ commenters never say anything positive about Obama?
