A Gift Fit for a Queen … Obama Gives Queen Elizabeth an iPod with his Speeches … Heaven Help Us


What planet does Barack Obama live on?

So what does one give a royalty? What is a gift that is fit for a Queen? In Obama’s world it is an iPod that includes his speeches. Good Grief.  There are probably many that are appropriate, I am going to go out on a limb and say no to the iPod. You have got to be kidding. If the gift was not lame enough, the Obamamessiah also included his speeches as well. Narcissism running wild. How does one sit among their advisors and come up with an iPod as a gift to bestow upon the Queen of England? Simply amazing.

Could you imagine if GWB had done something so foolish and arrogant? I hear the cowboy references already. Then again, it was Bush’s fault that Obama gave the queen an iPod.

      It’s all about the O!

    2. Jack Hammer on April 2nd, 2009 8:20 am

      Give it up with Obama already. You are wasting your time. He is the President and there is nothing you can do about it. If he took a crap and did not wipe properly, you would have something to say about that. And all your brainwashed followers would be there commenting on what a horrible President he was. Did you forget about what Bush did for this country.

      Pretty soon she is gonna be down to
      a gift card for Applebee’s.

    4. katablog on April 2nd, 2009 8:43 am

      Gee Jack thanks for reminding us how sunk we are. Again you, like the other liberals, go after GWB, failing to recognize that O has done more harm to this Country and Americans is a mere 3 months than GWB did in 8 years.

      So you really want to be a socialist? Why didn’t you move to Venezuela instead of ruining another country?

      Brainwashed? Excuse me, but who are the ones blindly following a community organizer who is taking over private business while bankrupting every American?

    5. buster on April 2nd, 2009 8:56 am

      #2 he did take a crap and he did wipe the wrong way !!! He got it allover himself

    6. yoyo muffintop on April 2nd, 2009 9:16 am

      Obviously the author of the above article hasn’t a clue about the “gift giving protocal”.
      So clueless it’s laughable.

    7. Michelle Smith on April 2nd, 2009 9:23 am

      #2 No, we are not going to give it up. For 8 years we had to listen to the left wing morons, the hollywood elite and the MSM blast Bush about anything & everything, the guy did not get a break from the ridicule. He had to deal with a terrorist attack within months of him taking oath of office, he had wars to deal with, natural disasters to deal with but yet did he get any respect? Hell No. Barack Hussein Obama is an idiot, so get used to at least 4 years of us complaining about his ineptness. Bush never gave lame ass gifts to the Prime Ministers or the Queen. Bush never went on Prime Time television and make fun of the “Special Olympics” Bush didn’t go television and laugh about how bad things are. Bush never gave the wrong speech. He didn’t depend on a teleprompter to tell him what to say. I’m not saying the man didn’t make some mistakes or that I agree with everything he did during his 8 years but I do feel he did what he thought was good for this country. We haven’t had another terrorist attack in the past 7 years and to me that speeks volumes. He cared about this country and he didn’t care about being Mr. Popularity. He was a much better President than the one we have now. Speaking of brainwashing. You should know because you have certainly been brainwashed by the media into thinking that Obama has a clue. He promised hope & change and so far it appears hopeless and I’m not happy with the kind of change he’s making. Spend, spend, spend, control, control, control. No, we haven’t forgotten what Bush did for this country, he made us safer & stronger.

      SO GET A CLUE if you don’t like what’s posted here then LEAVE.

    8. Michelle Smith on April 2nd, 2009 9:27 am

      YoYo I don’t find it funny at all that the President is a moron. I certainly don’t find it funny that 52% of this country voted for a community organizer to run this country. I don’t find it funny that he’s ruining this country. I don’t find it funny that he’s already spent more money in three months than Bush did in 8 years but all we heard for 8 years is how bad Bush was and how much money he spent.

      What a bunch of losers.

    9. Carpe on April 2nd, 2009 9:51 am

      During an impassioned debate on the House floor Wednesday, Democratic Rep. Barney Frank characterized Republican opposition to the Pay for Performance Act as a manifestation of “a psychological disorder” and compared GOP lawmakers to “kids who have had a toy bear or a security blanket” taken away.

      Oh,now ain’t that the pot belly calling the
      wrong little kettle hole black?

      Talk about what to get for a Queen! Obammy should
      have diddled up his Blackberry and put in a chirp
      to Barn. Barney knows what to get one, he wraps up
      a li’l gift for a queen every night.

      Barney Frank always reminds me of that dang Jim Henson muppet that watched the opera and wore a feather boa.

      That useless blob of protoplasm actually was voted into a United States Senate seat???

      Geez, this country is over.

    10. buster on April 2nd, 2009 10:01 am

      GO Michelle GO !!! Michelle I luv you because of the way you think !!!

    11. Patience for Slow People on April 2nd, 2009 11:27 am

      I hope you do realize, that the Queen gave the Obama’s a signed picture of her and her husband. That is the traditional gift from the queen to a new president.
      So, while you’re going on about Obama’s narcissism and cheap gifts, you do have that to compare it to.
      Also, the iPod contained mostly pictures & videos of the Queen’s trips to America, and just 2 of Obama’s speeches.
      If you think the Obamas purchased the iPod, and then were sitting around loading these things onto the iPod, rather than having an aide take care of it, I’m sad for you.
      Finally, one poster claimed that Obama has done more to hurt the country in a few months than Bush did in 8 years….Funny then, that you need to spend your time b*tching about something as trivial as a token gift to token royalty.

      FNC’s Napolitano Claims Bush Administration Committed ‘Extortion’ Against Banks

      By Jeff Poor
      April 1, 2009 – 19:28 ET

      It’s no secret the Bush administration used fear tactics to push the $700-billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) through Congress last fall. Both members of the House and the Senate have come out after the fact and disclosed the details.

      However, the method the Treasury Department employed to get banks to go along with the TARP bailout breached legal boundaries to the point of “extortion,” according to Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano, a former Superior Court Judge for the state of New Jersey.

      Napolitano told viewers on FNC’s April 1 “Studio B” that he had a conversation with a head of $250-billion bank that explained the federal government, under the threat of an audit, forced him to accept TARP funds.



    13. Michelle Smith on April 2nd, 2009 11:46 am

      #10 Thanks Buster. I’m just sick of these dumb asses that voted this moron into office and keep defending him every time he does something stupid and embarrasses our country.

      I always agree with your posts, you & I think on the same lines.

      We need to give em hell.

    14. Carpe on April 2nd, 2009 11:56 am

      The only way I could see two parties deploying
      these same tactics…

      Is if they know something BIG that we do not.

      Like gearing up for a major worldwide butt kicking…

      One so serious, you need to be able to control
      everything that moves and has a number stamped on it.

      Has anyone else noticed how quiet the Republicans
      in the loop have been over much of this?

      They are kind of like – oh gee, paw… that’s
      generational theft. – Then they shrug their shoulders and it is like – Now back to your
      regularly scheduled program.

    15. scott on April 2nd, 2009 11:56 am

      This is the arrogance that my neighbor who works with Obama in a medical capacity has been telling me about and a lot of the non-political appointees that still work there have been talking about.

      BTW, that arrogance is not doing him any good over at the G20 summit. I guess the majority of the world leaders are wrong when they say we are spending WAY TOO MUCH!

    16. scott on April 2nd, 2009 12:43 pm

      Actually Jack Hammer…Bush kept us all safe from another terrorist attack and twarted several attacks as well….but liberal jacka$$ losers like you have lost sight of what this country was like on 9/12. Liberals have and always will try to destroy what made and what still makes America, America!

      Come up some new mantra besides the 8 year crapola. I’m sure you took advangtage when the economy was rolling under Bush from 01-05 during the housing boom. How many flat screens did you buy? How many SUVs did you buy? How many times did you refi? STFU B*tch!

    17. nurturer on April 2nd, 2009 3:13 pm

      This would be comical if it weren’t coming from somebody so dangerous. How can this punk, imbecil think that an 83 year old woman (who has been acquainting herself with international dignitaries since BEFORE OBAMA WAS BORN) would find any interest at all in his teleprompter speeches?

    18. John Reiling on April 2nd, 2009 3:17 pm

      An ipod with Obama’s speeches is not such a bad idea! Good entertainment and maybe she will learn something. I think the interaction of the Obama’s with the other leaders at the Summit has been good and refreshing, although not necessrily an endorsement for all of his policies.

      48 hours and counting…

      -It is all over but the fighting-

      Kim Jong is locked and loaded and telling his

      Many of his people have been brainwashed from
      childhood to believe he is god.

      This will not be a test.

      No offense…


    22. HOPE on April 2nd, 2009 7:18 pm

      These are our concerns…


      Updated: 04.02.09

      MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico is owning up to its leaky border as it launches a new program to monitor vehicles entering the country. The goal is to weigh and photograph southbound cars and trucks, in hopes of snaring more gun smugglers.

      As the Obama administration promises a crackdown on the illegal U.S. weapons trade that supplies the drug cartels, Mexico is acknowledging shortcomings on its side of the 2,000-mile border.

      “Security concerns require a customs overhaul,” Alfredo Gutierrez Ortiz, who oversees border checkpoints as director of Mexico’s tax collection agency, said. “Today, passenger vehicles really enter without being inspected.”

      Mexico checks only 10 percent of the 230,000 vehicles that cross the border each day, according to the federal Attorney General’s Office. By weighing cars to see whether they are unusually heavy, and running license plate numbers through a database of suspicious vehicles, the government hopes to catch more hidden contraband.

      The United States has long weighed and checked the license plates of northbound vehicles, but the technology is new to Mexico, which is installing it at all customs checkpoints. It was introduced last week at Matamoros, across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, and should be added along Mexico’s border with Guatemala by year’s end.

      Inspections are now mostly determined by lights that randomly flash red or green.

      Inside Mexico, strict gun control laws prohibit sales of weapons with calibers higher than a .38 handgun. To buy those, citizens must get permission from the Defense Department.

      North of the border, however, the cartels simply pay straw buyers to pick up weapons at gun shops, gun shows or flea markets, then resell the arms to smugglers.

      The ATF says it has traced up to 95 percent of guns seized at scenes of drug violence in Mexico to U.S. commercial sources. These weapons are increasingly higher-powered, including .50-caliber Barrett rifles and ammunition that can pierce the armor of Mexican soldiers and police.

      “A year ago, we never saw those guns going south into Mexico,” said Tom Mangan, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “Now we refer to it as one of the weapons of choice.”

      Mexico’s effort coincides with President Barack Obama’s pledge to dispatch nearly 500 more federal agents to the border, along with X-ray machines and drug-sniffing dogs to stop the spillover of Mexico’s drug violence and curb gun smuggling.

      Experts are skeptical about the chances of slowing the weapons supply. Gun runners easily smuggle thousands of weapons in small numbers at a time, taking them apart and hiding them in suitcases or even TVs and DVD players. Smugglers also can avoid checkpoints, carrying weapons along the same desolate corridors that bring drugs and migrants north.


      … and you want to start a war among your own people?

    23. wg on April 2nd, 2009 7:39 pm

      I wonder if the IPOD with pictures of her visit was some kind of insider joke. Does she give autographed pictures of herself to new people? Somehow, I don’t think the person who picked out the IPOD like America or the Queen. jmho

    24. wg on April 2nd, 2009 7:45 pm

      @ Jack Hammer

      There are many who believe Bush 43 will be regarded as a hero one day. Has any nation ever spent it’s way out of a recession or a depression?

      What happened to living below your means and saving for a rainy day?

    25. HOPE on April 2nd, 2009 10:47 pm

      I agree with Jack Hammer. Through the power of media, anyone can be painted the bad guy. Maybe we need to think outside the box instead of letting one network or one newspaper dictate how we feel. As you know, every newspaper publication is going to print its’ commentary in the direction of his perception of truth. It may not be the truth, at all; but it sells newspapers in the interim.

      Politics is a lot of poppycock. And I would venture to guess that no matter how he uses his toilet paper, there will always be a critic saying he should have done it the other way. Hindsight’s 20/20, besides, it really isn’t any of our business what he does behind THOSE doors… his personal life is private and shouldn’t be blasted on any newspaper cover or private forums… and a gift should be accepted in the spirit it was given. I’m sure the Queen isn’t crying in her tea because she got an i-pod instead of a picture to hang on the wall… and if she is, we don’t hear her complaining and pointing fingers, do we?

    26. Pat in Alabama on April 2nd, 2009 10:59 pm

      The figure of US being the source of 90% isn’t true, but it makes great fodder for the MSM and politicians are using it to warm people up to the idea of stricter gun control.

      Here’s another version of the truth:


    27. HOPE on April 2nd, 2009 11:12 pm

      See what I mean?

      Now, where else would they be getting those guns?

      From another Guns for Drugs Contra deal?


      Only LE and the military are allowed to carry guns without special permission, in Mexico, Central and South America… Kinda shines a new light on those record gun sales in the states during the election… as well as, our concerns over them imo.

      No offense…

      What? Race war? Of course not. Get a grip,
      Hopeless. Unlock your mind today, my dear.

      I learned many moons ago to not classify people
      by race.

      I’ve lived long enough to see people of every shade of color do hideous things.

      I’ve seen people of every color do the greatest
      things that have made our lives better.

      I have also lived long enough to see that some people’s life perceptions have flipped and become
      an alternate reality.

      I simply state what I am observing. I do it boldly, some may not like that.

      I do not need a Zogby poll to tell me the difference between right and wrong.

      I do not need ABC, CBS, NPR, MSNBC, Fox News,
      David Letterman, Jon Stewart, or Jay Leno for
      my political views.

      All I need, is sitting comfortably on top of my
      neck, right in between my two ears.

      I thought you people had a higher standard for Obama? He was supposed to be a “change”.

      This fool is a no-talent hack. He proves it every day. Obama can’t blame his lame gifts of GWB and neither can you.

      What a joke. This is what happens when people allow themselves to be BS’d by a snake oil salesman.

      Yes he is the Presient for the until 2012. First the Congress will take the hit in 2010 and let’s just hope that by 2012 Obama has not ruined the US.

    31. katablog on April 3rd, 2009 8:17 am

      I don’t believe in “tit for tat”. My thoughts on OweBama have nothing to do with how GWB was or wasn’t treated. And, I think people should realize just how serious the situation is instead of arguing over petty things like iPod gifts (though I admit it shows a lack of judgment. The UK does have iPods, it’s not unique).

      Here are some things to judge O on: In November 2008, unemployment was at 6.7%, a 15 year high. 10.3 million people were unemployed.

      At the end of March 2009, unemployment is at 8.5%, a 26 year high, with 13.2 million people unemployed.

      In other words America – we’ve spent $767 Billion on “saving jobs” and somehow lost 3 million jobs while doing so.

      Now Congress is following that up by passing a $3.7 trillion budget for 2010. Do most of you get how large a trillion is? In a time of incredible unemployment, an economic meltdown, a recession – the US Government is going to spend more than all other presidents combined! Does that make sense to anyone?

    32. Waterboy on April 3rd, 2009 8:18 am

      Jack Hammer,

      Forget it. Just forget it! I, us, we are going to rib Obama till the cows come home, just like you, they, them did to President Bush. Obama deserves all the criticism we can think of. He’s the first truly unqualified President we have had since Jimmy Carter, and I, we; us are going to make the best of it. Let’s face it; the guy doesn’t know his @ss from a hole in the ground.

      The excitement is building on talk radio and elsewhere. We are going to have all kinds of fun with a true idiot in the office of President. I’m looking forward to the fireside chats, and the sweaters again.

      Oh, joy. Oh, fun. I love it. It’s going to be blunder after blunder.

      What fun!


    33. Waterboy on April 3rd, 2009 8:30 am

      Obama should have loaded the I-pod with Jimi Hendrix songs and videos. The queen would have like it more.

      I don’t know about the rest of you, but I loved Jimi Hendrix. He was so crazy. It was so much fun.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a gimi Jimi kinda guy, but wow—talk about putting your self into something—now that was Jimi.


    34. Waterboy on April 3rd, 2009 8:43 am

      You know, If Obama gave me such an I-pod, I would be very appreciative (unless is were a cheap version). A touch would be good.

      I’d dump all the Obama stuff, and load in the Green Hulk—just for those times when things get really boring.

      I had a recording of my history teacher in high school. When I was a senior, I had bad insomnia problems. I’d play the recording of my history teacher, and I’d be instantly asleep. The only problem is I have things like “Upon the voyage of John Cabot—England based all her claims to the new world.” Stuck in my head.

      I might use Obama’s gift I-pod as a sleep aide. I would just hope and pray that nothing would stick in my head. I might walk around thinking, “My white grandmother, my white grandmother, my white grandmother.” I might accidently call my wife “my white grandmother.” I might call my dog, “my white grandmother.”

      Hope this makes sense to someone! It seems funny to me.


    35. Brenda in Virginia on April 3rd, 2009 8:59 am

      If this isn’t the most arrogant thing I’ve ever seen a sitting U.S. President do, nothing is.

      Besides, you’d get more out of listening to an instrumental than any of the Great “Zero’s” rants.

    36. Waterboy on April 3rd, 2009 9:00 am

      Jack Hammer,

      Thank God for the Jack Hammers of the world. What a boring place it would be if we didn’t have Jack Hammers.

      With no Jacks, who would we tell, “I told you so”?

      Just wait Jack, when enough states enact voter I.D. requirements that will be the end of the democrat party, as we know it.

      When Jack Hammers can’t vote 3 or 4 times, how are they going to get elected?


    37. Brenda in Virginia on April 3rd, 2009 9:03 am

      #29 Carpe…That post made me want to stand up and clap. 100% agreed. I am the intuition God gave me to KNOW the difference between right and wrong. IMO, refusing to listen to that inner-voice is what causes to many people to drink, smoke, so drugs…anything to numb that conscious as it will follow you your entire life. Whether you adhere to it or not. If not? Not even God will help you in the end, He cannot as He gave you the choice to ignore him.

    38. Brenda in Virginia on April 3rd, 2009 9:14 am

      “I am the intuition God gave …”

      Uhhh…that didn’t type out at I meant it too. Yikes!! Meant to say I HAVE the intuition God gave. Hell, if I WAS that intutition, I wouldn’t be on this earth now, would I? :>)

    39. Rusty Bridges on April 3rd, 2009 9:26 am

      Hey Hope, where do you think the rocket launchers and hand grenades are comming from? Gun shows or maybe Walmart? Get a clue, weapons and supplies are flowing from the south of Mexico along with the drugs and gang members that flow freely into US from south america via mexico.

      Where have you been? This is a full assualt on America by mexico. How do you think that a country that requires every male age 18 years to serve in the military cannot stop the flow of illegals and drugs to America? It’s because they don’t want to.

      Here is a little history lesson for you. Do you remember the Alamo? It’s not just some folklore you know. I know that Mexicans still believe that Texas and most of the southwest US still belong to Mexico. They will laugh at you when they tell you that too. They feel the only thing illegal about them crossing the border is the border. Most of them will share with you that the feeling in Mexico is that soon they will take it back and then some.

      The funny thing is that the liberal weenies will help them do it and they don’t give one shit if you our family is subjected to whatever may come. Gang members from south america kill with no regard for US law, they are illegals and are granted more rights than US citizens.

      Guns at gun shows can only be sold to US citizens after an FBI background check. Every legal firearm has a form that is kept by the licensed seller and the state in case that firearm is used in a crime it can be traced to the buyer. A person can sell their own personal weapon to anybody they chose, but they are responsible for that weapon until the end of time because that form will be on file with them as the owner. There is not a way to change it, it’s yours for life.

      So with that in mind, how many sane people would sell a civilianized military type firearm to just anybody and be responsible for what that person may do with it? Not many I can tell you. Most sane people are holding on to that firearm because they are sane and see the BS through the fog.

      Yes I’m sure there are a few “straw” buyers, but it is a drop compared to the number of guns that the drug cartels have. I’m sure some are stolen from US citizens, but wouldn’t that beg for better inforcement of existing laws to keep these weapons from being stolen? No, the liberal solution, or better yet, excuse is making it illegal for honest citizens to protect themselves from a useless governments failed attempt at protecting us from criminals.

      Nothing against you Hope, but you represent the feelings of many about guns and gun control and I just had to rant.

      I agree with you. But, you ever hear of false I.D.? How about identity theft? Obviously, these coyote’s bring people into our country and smuggle things back using the same routes.

      IMO if anyone wants to make fun of slow people, they need to go to the forum… the rumor mill would be better suited for your agenda. What fun… invite people in, ‘Come on down from the rafters”, and have them investigated for participating. It does not look good. It makes for great entertainment from the outside, but I have better things to do than to lay around trying to make myself look important and point fingers and laugh at their bloggers.

      BTW: Other than keeping track of the dying in Aruba, they have done very little to help Natalee or anyone else. I’d match my reputation against theirs any day.
