Actor and comedian Chris Rock called President Obama the "dad of the country" as he rallied on Capitol Hill to support his father figure´s call for new gun controls. "I am just here to support the president of the United States," said Mr. Rock, a former "Saturday Night Live" cast member whose most recent acting roles include a voice role in the animated feature "Madagascar 3," a spot in "What to Expect When You´re Expecting" and guest turns on the FX comedy "Louie." "The President of the United States is, you know, our boss.
A perfect example of the go-along-to-get-along ignorant vapidity of the Hollywood crowd. He and Cameron Diaz and Sarah Jessica Parker and Robert Redford and Susan Sarandon and Barbra Streisand and Ed Asner and Sean Penn and Whoopi (I know I´m leaving a lot of morons out here) should all go to D.C. to help Obama run the country. As dumb as they are, they couldn´t be any worse than the yo-yos he´s got in D.C. now.
"Our Boss"? I don´t think so! In fact that worthless drug dealing community organizer works for me! I (and millions of other hardworking americans) pay him a princely salary and give him lots of benefits to do his job. He agrees by saying "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." The fact that he´s not should be grounds for impeachment and removal from office.
As far as being a "Dad of the country", Not in any way whatsoever except to his own children. Chris Rock is a nitwit!
...this is hillarious...75% of black births are illegitmate and many don´t have a clue who their babydaddys are...the gangbanger-daddys don´t care who they murder...40% of all babies murdered by abortions are black babies cause their babymommas don´t want to be "punished"... barack barry soetoro obama was abandoned by his alcoholic kenyan daddy, abandoned by his muslim step-daddy and crazy mother and "mentored" by a communist pedophile...so which daddy do they look too...the one raised by white grandparents; the one who skipped school; the pot choomer or cocaine snorter; the kenyan student; the conneticut social security guy; the lawyer who surrendered his law license; the affirmative action loser; community organizer acorn clown; the bathhouse rumors; anti-american politician; teleprompter reader; golfer; skeeter or droner...decisions, decisions, decisions.
There was a time that I admired your wit, your ability to turn a phrase, albeit encrusted with profanity. Sir, you were no Red Skelton, and you certainly were never a Bob Hope, but frankly I held you in comparable esteem to Lenny Bruce and George Carlin. Sir, I say this as a man of your generation, but of opposite political discipline. While I adamently opposed the political objectives of Mssrs. Bruce and Carlin, I respected their craft and the abilities they brought to the stage.
But these comments from you display a complete failure to understand the nature and obective of the American Republic. We the people are accountable to each other, but the government is accountable to us.
Perhaps I am no longer in your targeted demographic. Perhaps your target audience is deficient in its understanding of American governance and you are diluting your thinking to match their delusions. Or perhaps your just got luck in Dogma to be supported by stronger intellects than your own.
Good bye, sir. Good riddance. And may the chains of servitude rest lightly upon you for your remaining years.
I was raised by my married parents. I don´t need no stinkin´ obama as my daddy. Now, since most black kids are born out of wedlock they probably don´t understand what it is like to have your father actually live in your house and who is actually married to your mother. They might have a psychological need for a "daddy". I don´t. Get out of my life and leave me alone. Oh, and by the way, I also don´t need him as my boss and I certainly don´t look to him for guidance. What an a hole chris rock is. Hummm, no wonder he worships obama. obama is an a hole too.
Your not alone, Chris. Lefties throughout the world and throughout history got a hankerin´ for that cult of personality thing, be it Lenin, Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Castro, Chavez or Obama. You seem to need that kind of thing, more than, sound policies, principles or logic. And you will overlook and rationalize, any shortcomings they or their regimes may have, no matter how horrific to life and liberty. This existence of mindless daddy-needing sheep like you is actually worse than the leaders you worship. Without you and your ignorant ilk, these tyrants could not attain and maintain power.
Chris rock. Another load of Obama bull. Tired of hearing praise for a man who has done nothing but make everyone´s life harder. Not my daddy. Ever. In fact I´m all for impeachment. Every day we get a new ocare surprise. Sickening
Hey Chris SNL isn´t even funny anymore, and BHO is NOT my boss or my daddy, and from what I have heard of his idealolgy I would never listen to him! As far as that goes, I do not have a president and have NOT had one for the last four years!
Maybe he´s YOUR dad, but MY dad was white, was born here, had normal ears, fought in WW2 for his country without hiding behind drones, had an actual job from which he prospered and is probably rolling over in his grave at what is calling itself president while the rest of us just wring our hands about it.
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
