There’s Unity in Hate

The Trumpcare debacle was a meltdown melodrama,
With the Freedom Caucus dealing Trump an ego-trauma.
Can those Republicans
Ever unify again?
Not without something to hate, like, say, an Obama.

Lesbian Farmers Attack!

Conservatives still like to call him a foreigner,
But what they really fear is Obama the Reformer.
During his last months in office,
He’ll topple the right-wing edifice,
By filling the Midwest with FEMA-funded lesbian farmers.

Obama: Don’t Blame me for GOP Crackup!

I don’t think that I was the one to prompt questions about my birth certificate, for example. I don’t remember saying, ‘Hey, why don’t you ask me about that. Or why don’t you question whether I’m American, or whether I’m loyal, or whether I have America’s best interests at heart’ — those aren’t things that were prompted by any actions of mine. And so what you’re seeing within the Republican Party is, to some degree, all those efforts over a course of time creating an environment where somebody like a Donald Trump can thrive. He’s just doing more of what has been done for the last seven and a half years.

— President Obama, at a press conference, refusing to validate “some notion that the Republican crack-up that’s been taking place is a consequence of actions that I’ve taken.”

Missed that Race

We’re all enjoying the Robo Marco campaign drama.
The bullies will soon send him crying to his mama.
But someone should tell the
Misguided little fella
That he’s not running for president against Barack Obama.

Bush Defends Obama — Kind of …

Barack Obama is a talented man — and by the way he’s an American, he’s a Christian — his problem isn’t the fact that he was born here or what his faith is. His problem is that he’s a progressive liberal who tears down anybody that disagrees with him.

— Jeb Bush, quoted by the Washington Post, in response to Donald Trump’s decision not to correct a questioner who said President Obama is a Muslim who is “not even an American.”

Bachmann: Obama Set on Destroying the World

We need to cry out to a Holy God. This is coming faster than anyone can see. Barack Obama is intent, it is his number one goal, to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon. Why? Why would you put the nuclear weapon in the hands of madmen who are Islamic radicals?

— Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), asserting that President Obama is bringing the world to “end times,” TPM reports.

Cruz: Obama’s Not a ‘Distaster’ Because He was a Senator

Obama is not a disaster because he was a senator. Obama is a disaster because he’s an unmitigated socialist, what he believes is profoundly dangerous, and he’s undermined the Constitution and the role of America in the world.

— Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), saying that the only reason that pundits say the GOP needs to run a governor for president, not a senator, wi that “most of the establishment moderates” in the field were governors, reports David Weigel.

Cheney Accuses Obama of Trying to Take Down America

I vacillate between the various theories I’ve heard, but you know, if you had somebody as president who wanted to take America down, who wanted to fundamentally weaken our position in the world and reduce our capacity to influence events, turn our back on our allies and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what Barack Obama’s doing.

— Former Vice President Dick Cheney, accusing President Obama of trying to “take America down,” Politico reports. He added: “I think his actions are constituted in my mind those of the worst president we’ve ever had.”
