President Barack Obama on Friday declared an end to the Iraq war, one of the longest and most divisive conflicts in U.S. history, announcing that all U.S. troops would be withdrawn from the country by year’s end. ‘As promised the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of the year. After nearly nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over,’ Obama said. ‘Today I can say that troops in Iraq will be home for the holidays.’


Obama: All US troops out of Iraq by year’s end

So this is pretty big, right?

Last night at a Texas Rangers game, former president George W. Bush almost got hit with a foul ball. Bush vowed revenge on the batter, but you know Obama’s gonna be the one to actually get him.

Rush is right. The president is a credit hog…which is deeply offensive to Rush and other Hog-Americans.

If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I’m in the White House, I’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself. I’ll walk on that picket line with you as president of the United States of America because workers deserve to know that somebody is standing in their corner.

Can President Obama find campaign trail Obama somewhere and get him in the game?

The question is, and this is what Barack Obama didn’t want to answer — is that human life a person under the constitution? And Barack Obama says no. Well if that human life is not a person then I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say ‘Now we are going to decide who are people and who are not people.’

Fun Fact:  Did you know that santorum means “the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex”? Because it totally does, thanks to Dan Savage.

P.S. — There’s video (of the quote, not of anal sex).

Every single thing you do… is worthwhile. What could be more important for you to do, really, if you think about this? Everything is at stake here. Everything. I firmly believe with all my heart, you guys, that, although we have had many threats to our nation. We have gone through a whole lot of things, and survived a many things… But nothing, I do not believe, not the Soviet Union during that 35-year period leading up to the fall of the Soviet Union thanks to Ronald Reagan… We had that threat, we survived it. Later we found out we had another threat to our way of life and that was al-Qaeda… But I firmly believe this… The greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life; everything we believe in. The greatest threat to the country that our founding fathers put together is the man that’s sitting in the White House today.
