FOD 2012.12.24

Lots of headlines to choose from for today's post. For example:

Obama Uses Funeral Service to Talk About Himself
President Barack Obama used the funeral for Hawaii senator Daniel Inouye to talk about himself. In the short 1,600 word speech, Obama used the word "my" 21 times, "me" 12 times, and "I" 30 times.
Obama Golfing in Hawaii With Pal Arrested in Prostitution Sting
Taking a break from the fiscal cliff negotiations, President Obama is spending the first day of his holiday vacation golfing with friends and aides, including longtime pal Bobby Titcomb, who was arrested last year on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute.
Talk about a target-rich environment. But I'm going to go with this story. With all the hoopla about the fiscal cliff and the Newtown shootings, it slipped in under the radar. IMO it hasn't received the ridicule it deserves.

Obama: ‘I Would Be Considered a Moderate Republican’ in the 1980s
In an interview with Univision 23 on Thursday, a Spanish station based in Miami, the president was asked about the perception among some Americans that he has a socialist vision for the country.

“The truth of the matter is that my policies are so mainstream that if I had set the same policies that I had back in the 1980s, I would be considered a moderate Republican,” he said.
Yeah, right. I get obama and Reagan mixed up all the time. In fact, I could have sworn the following quote was from obama. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was actually from Ronnie...

Speaking of obama the socialist, here's what would happen if he ran into Charlie Brown at the Christmas tree lot.

Finally, here's one you may have seen before. It's worth repeating, however, since obama has jetted off to Hawaii for his annual Christmas vacation. (Click to embiggen, if necessary.)
