Ted Cruz wins the internet today.

Love the Office Space reference.  If you haven’t heard about Hillary’s email server issues, you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last year.

 

Ted has another one that my kids just LOVE:

My kids have been randomly yelling, “Eminent Domain!” like it’s a Hulk-Smash rallying cry.  More importantly, they asked what it was, and were genuinely curious. That is the real genius of ads like this, education.

 

After blaming GOP for leaving him with the theoretical dinner bill, Obama forgets to pay his dinner tab.

Tuesday afternoon President Obama mixed his metaphors a bit at a fundraiser in Baltimore. (emphasis mine)

“If they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it’s true, what they’re not telling you is they baked all this stuff into the cake,” he said.

“I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion-dollar deficit. We had a surplus, they turned it into a deficit, built it into a structural deficit that lasts for decades, and — isn’t that something?” President Obama said at a fundraiser today.

“This notion that somehow we caused the deficits is just wrong. It’s just not true. Anybody who looks at the math will tell you it’s not true. If they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it’s true, what they’re not telling you is they baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts and a prescription drug plan that they didn’t pay for and the wars,” he said.

“So all of this stuff is baked in, with all the interest payments for it, it’s like somebody goes to the restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as you’re sitting down, they leave and accuse you of running up the tab. That’s what they do,” he said.  (Via RealClearPolitics H/T Salon.com)

The following day, after basically accusing the GOP of skipping out on the bill for a steak dinner & martinis, our Illustrious Leader went out for some BBQ with a few guys, and proceeded to skip out on the bill.  Not.  Kidding.

Amid the bustle of President Obama’s surprise stop for barbecue Wednesday the White House apparently overlooked one key detail: the bill.

Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill.

As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.

The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.

The White House corrected the oversight and settled up the tab by the end of the business day.  (Via ABCNews, h/t WeaselZippers)

You can’t make this stuff up.

 

UPDATE:  Gateway Pundit gave me a hat tip in his story here.

Oh, the irony. Afgan Muslims burn Korans during protest over Koran burning.

As the dust settles in Afghanistan after sustained protest over a Florida pastor’s Quran burning, many residents in Kandahar are facing an unpleasant truth: More Qurans were burned in the course of their protests than by Terry Jones. The demonstrations, which started peacefully, quickly turned violent, killing at least nine people and injuring scores in Kandahar City alone. And as protesters vandalized a girls’ school and set fire to shops, Qurans also inadvertently went up in flames. “If they burn a shop, there is a Quran in every shop, so this is a big problem,” says Azizullah Aziz, a perfume and soap salesman in Kandahar City. “People don’t know how to protest.”

Obama’s telepromtper gets nasty when it’s drunk

You know, if you don’t laugh at this kind of stuff, you’ll just wind up going bald from pulling your hair out…

Obama’s teleprompter played a pretty mean prank on both Obama & the Irish Prime Minister.  Maybe it had over indulged during the St. Patrick’s Day party or something…  yea, that’s it!  The teleprompter was drunk!

As the Irish Taoiseach delivered his St Patrick’s Day speech at a White House dinner party, it emerged that he was accidentally reading off the teleprompter one made by President Obama only minutes earlier.

“We begin by welcoming today a strong friend of the United States,” he began and continued in that vein for about 20 seconds before – realising he was experiencing more than the usual case of déjà vu – he looked back at the US President and said: “That’s your speech!”

On this occasion, as a laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium, the script was belatedly switched over to the Taoiseach’s text – leaving Mr Obama inadvertently thanking himself for inviting everyone, to further laughter. “First, I’d like to say thank you to President Obama!” the President said.

via Irish PM Brian Cowen left red-faced after delivering Obama speech at White House – Times Online.

You know, on a more serious note, the Irish PM can’t be happy about being made a fool of at the White House.  Yet another Ally offended.  And everyone across the pond has noticed that Obama never goes anywhere without his teleprompter.  The Brits are even calling him the “Teleprompter President.”

Mr Obama is becoming known as the ‘teleprompter president’ for his excessive use of the prompting screens, which retract when speeches are finished.

Although used for more than half a century, the device was previously employed mainly for set-piece speeches. The current President, however, often uses them for making small introductory statements at the beginning of press conferences.(source)

But Rush Limbaugh just had me laughing my butt off this afternoon when he offered to interview the teleprompter, and asked if the teleprompter was dating anyone, Mac or PC?  Luv it! (source)
