He’s always celebrating something. That is unless it’s freedom.

But the SOB couldn’t find time to attend the national prayer breakfast. But any muslim or hindu celebration and he’s right there. What a disgusting puke and a disgrace to the office he holds.

BREAKING NEWS:

This just in:



Obama wins the Heisman Trophy after watching a college football game today!!!

Obama has been awarded the Heisman Trophy after watching a college football game! His name was submitted for the award by George Soros just moments before Obama actually watched part of a football-game on television aboard Air Force One. Obama learned about the Heisman award while travelling to accept an Academy Award for his appearances in post-election campaign ads. Obama said: "I will accept the Heisman trophy in the name of all the minority players who are being denied the opportunity to play college football simply because of their grades, lack of ability, or incarceration ."

The White House also announced today that Obama has reluctantly been persuaded by his staff and the ACLU to present himself with the Presidential Medal of Freedom for the outstanding deeds he hopes to accomplish sometime in the future. A decision on his Congressional Medal of Honor has been temporarily sidetracked because of minor technical issues concerning eligibility.

In the meantime, the President's decisions on the economy, health-care, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have been delayed indefinitely due to the president's busy schedule of public appearances. When asked what involvement he will have in the healthcare-bill named in his honor, Obama replied: I will probably vote "Present".

I don't know about Hindu religions, so tell me...

Just who is Obama bowing to now? The Hindu priest? The oil in the lamp? A reflection of himself in the silver lamp? Who?

Whoever or whatever...it is not presidential, nor Christian. But, neither is Obama.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that bowing gesture with the hands together is called "namaste" which signifies,

"I bow to that inherent in you" (That refers to divinity, or "that which is divine".)

"I respect divinity within you that is also within me."

"The light within me honors the light within you."

With Obama's narcissistic ego thinking he is god-like, it's not surprising the fraud is willing to do it. Christian, he ain't.

Lonely Bull - I had to comment on your post...just here to educate and not criticize. Some facts about India:

- Albert Einstein said: We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.

- There are 3.22 Million Indians in America. 38% of Doctors in America are Indians. 12% of Scientists in America are Indians. 36% of NASA employees are Indians. 34% of MICROSOFT employees are Indians 28% of IBM employees are Indians 17% of INTEL employees are Indians 13% of XEROX employees are Indians

- India never invaded any country in her last 10000 years of history.

- India invented the Number System. Zero was invented by Aryabhatta.

- India invented the technique of algorithm used in computer science today.

- India invented the making of camphor (MODERN chemists know how important this chemical is).

This doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of the contributions the Indian culture has made to the world. Go to www.sciforums.com to learn more.

Lonely Bull - I had to comment on your post...just here to educate and not criticize.

I was referring to Joe Biden's comments as a senator:

Joe Biden Commits Racial Slur, Where's the Outrage? (2006)

With that in mind, as captured by C-SPAN, Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware) recently made some comments concerning folks from India that were not at all flattering. As of yet, there appears to be no media outrage.

Here’s what Biden said:

“In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

So my reference was to having a vice-president with a history of...interesting statements, including this one.

In other words, the joke isn't on people of Indian descent, in the US and elsewhere. In fact, if people of Indian descent had contributed little to the US or to the world, the ironic contrast on which this joke rests (the contrast between their achievements and what then-Sen. Biden implied) would've been missing, and the joke would've fallen flat.

Instead, the joke is primarily at the expense of Joe Biden. Even if he was truly trying to praise them, he wound up speaking poorly. The joke is secondarily directed at a situation where someone with a history of odd blunders wound up becoming the vice-president, without much attention from a biased press.
