Is There a Lemon Law for Presidents?

Bueller? Bueller? Where are this man’s handlers? At the Apple store?

Two things I wish: 1. That somewhere in the bowels of the Constitution, there is a lemon law for Presidents. “Please, sir, I want to return this, this…thing. According to the warranty under section 53, paragraph 1, part B, I have 90 days to return for a full refund if I am not at least 5% satisfied. I’m not. It malfunctions daily.” 2. That if President Bush accidentally packed the Official White House Book of Rules, Etiquette and Protocol when he was leaving, would he please return it. Otherwise, we’ll just have to assume that the Obamas threw it out when they started bringing in the black velvet paintings of Rev. Wright.

Clariiiiice at American Thinker reminds the Clueless-in-Chief of American Citizen Rule #1:

Americans do not bow to foreign monarchs because that act signified the monarch’s power over his subjects.

Gary Graham has a good idea.

Like Elizabeth, I continue to grapple with the “Is he a closet Muslim?” question. So far, almost everything he said during the pre-election campaign has turned out to be one kind or another of “misspeak” that is corrected and recorrected in the post-election campaign. Today’s actions lead further down one path.

Is Barack Obama secretly a Muslim or – if not a Muslim – somehow beholden to Muslim interests? I don’t know. Still can’t say. But it’s a fair question, now. And I keep remembering this quote from a writer in the NY Daily News, which is hardly a conservative bastion:

During the campaign, a fellow journalist confided that “I know Obama is a Manchurian candidate, I just can’t figure out what for.” I laughed then, but no more.

As Obama embarrasses America abroad, can we hope the lap-dog media at home will wake up and howl over this like they howled over Bush when he met the same Saudi King? Michelle:

…I hope all the lefties who tore into Bush over his Saudi prostration will express equal disgust with President HopeAndChange’s literal bowing and scraping to King Abdullah.

Or will they continue to swoon? He’s so hip, so dreamy, he twitters his day away and then heads courtside. But don’t think for a minute he’s not keeping score. At the buzzer – He wins, we lose.

    “As Obama embarrasses America abroad, ”

    We all love Obama over here. It’s a welcome change from eight years of Republican bully tactics in which America was run like a mob family. We appreciate just how close the World came to another four years of Republican destruction….and …… it makes me quiver….. Palin.

    So before you start accusing Obama of embarrassing America, know that we couldn’t be happier that you’ve finally picked a decent President.

    futiledemocracy, WE all don’t love the fraud that is Obama. Don’t speak for the growing number of Americans who see the truth. 46 million of us saw the dangerous empty-suit and empty mind that is Obama prior to the election. Anyone who would have made even a minor effort to find out what Obama is all about would have seen the truth, instead of being taken by a glib talker (who can’t utter a coherant word with out his teleprompter). Remember, Hitler was a smooth talker, and he didn’t even need a teleprompter to fool the people. You need to wake up from your Obama-induced Kool Aid and realize that we are about to be destroyed.

    That’s what you think NOW my friend, but I assure you, he will be every bit the embarrassment you claim Bush was.

    In many cases, the protocol ignorant Obamas already have embarrassed us…well, me anyway.

    Everybody’s got the supposed genuflection all wrong. What happened was that Pres Obama was simply inspecting King Abdullah’s shoes and exclaiming, “Are those Bruno Maglis.” Or the other theory is that Obama began swooning when the King confirmed that, yes indeed, he had twenty-two children.
