Yes, because poor results from multinationals due to a worldwide economic downturn is Obama's fault.
Christ, you're tiresome.
I like you, R3
They were reacting to Mitt Romney's latest excuse as to why he didn't win.
Haha. You should see the reader comments in the Daily Mail write up about the visit (which didn't have this picture). Freeper insanity.
Keep projecting like that, R3, and you'll go far around here.
R6, I guess they prefer the "hilarious" picture of Bush looking for WMDs under his desk while thousands of people were dying including the soldiers looking for those WMDs, but yeah, I'm supposed to believe the 4 deaths in Libya is far more outrageous.
Sorry, I love my President.
He's making funny faces while people are dying!!!
After what had before him, there's nothing to be sorry about. Granted, there are things I dislike about him, but it's like being given filet mignon after being fed a shit sandwich from '00-'08
That picture right there is why people like Obama. He's simply a likable guy, period.
That's one thing that kept getting mentioned about Obama in a number of articles I've read. His likeability ratings are much higher than previous presidents', which is somewhat remarkable given the state of the economy. It's also remarkable because these are random digit dial surveys which necessarily contain a proportion of freepers which drag the ratings down. I think his reaction to the Florida pizza parlor owner's bear hug and asking that Hawaii-born kid if he had his birth certificate are examples of what attracts those ratings. Being No Drama Obama also helps.
He is awesome. I'm with R9.
I was just going to say the same, R9!
R3: I think that's why the rightwing hates him so much. The fact that he's not only "colored," but clearly could not give a shit what the right thinks of him. They can't get to him with their idiocy. They can't get him to react in a manner befitting their stereotype of him, so he's obviously "arrogant."
Meant R13, not, R3

Love means never having to say you're sorry.
you fucking gringos have the coolest president ever
I can hardly wait to see the expression on his face once his impeachment hearings begin.
Obama is funny. You can tell he's a father with two girls by the way he relates to these young women and enjoys them.
It's really pathetic that the losing freepers have to go negative and politicize EVERYTHING. Their grapes are so sour they're turning to vinegar.
They're becoming laughingstocks in the eyes of the entire world, R21. I say it can't happen soon enough.
Actually, Michele caught Oprah climbing down the Whitehouse chimney and was chasing her out with a broom.

Thanks for revealing the reason the leftwing loves him so much.
[quote]"He's the coolest person I ever met," she said - which is saying something, considering the Fierce Five have hobnobbed with a Who's Who of celebrities since London. "He's got the hardest job in the entire world."
So glad McKayla is Freeper-free!
Yes, let the Rethugs try to impeach the President. More obstructionism that I'm sure the average American wants, instead of working on the economy, jobs, etc.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
