“The Terrs never messed with Dick Cheney, for a number of reasons I’d suspect..”

Unfortunately it seems that no one who is a representative of the US, no matter who they might be, is really immune from this sort of thing.

Would that be good or bad from his point of view (having Pelosi as VP)?

She’s an evil witch who does Bambi’s bidding and spares him the trouble of actually having to pretend to do anything, so she might be a plus. But then who would control Congress?

What I really think this shows is the contempt that the Muzzie radicals have for the US. They know that with their friend in the WH, they’re cool and they can do whatever they want.

Guess someone's not a fan of Biden's association with the Iranian regime. Or possibly, one of Iran's proxies was give the order to remind Plugs just who he really works for. Thanks SonOfDarkSkies.

Pelosi is evil, but the really evil person behind her is Bambi (well, and his henchpersons).

I lived in SF for a number of years during the time when she got her start, and she’s dumb as a box of rocks but very aggressive and was always the darling of the radical Dems. Her husband is extremely well off and she has always been free to do her thing. However, she has no original ideas, and she has been the vicious sock puppet for Bambi/Emmanuel/[fill in the corrupt leftist of your choice] since day one.

Obama celebrates July 4th at White House barbecue

With first lady Michelle Obama at his side, Obama spoke from a White House balcony overlooking the South Lawn.

Guests ate traditional July Fourth fare—hot dogs, hamburgers and grilled chicken with potato salad and corn on the cob. Plenty of red, white and blue decorated the South Lawn, from colorful tablecloths to paper lanterns hanging from trees.

According to other comments on the thread, this kind of thing is still fairly routine there. No telling what the military response was. Just because the MSM doesn't report it, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Hummm looks like they knew he was coming.

Where is Barry? Usually the VC-25s are in the air ferrying around his sorry self. If the Kenyan Post Turtle could constrain himself for a couple of days, then Plugs could have done what Cheney did in March of 2002 when he was jetsetting the M.E.

Otherwise, he is prolly on the C-32 which is painted up like tail # 28000 and 29000. In any case, I'm sure that their arrogance requires a clearing of the skies and rerouting of traffic. Simple computer modeling software pulling commercial traffic schedules from the intraweb could tell the bad guys that something is up and to go ahead and set up the rockets.

I wonder if President Soros is planning something evil for BiteMe?

Hey there, we need Biden for comic relief.

This must be the Benny Hill administration. Or maybe Obama is doing a W.C. Fields impression out on the golf course. Maybe he'll throw Biden in a pond.
