The President names his favorite anti-Obama conspiracy theory.

Courtesy of TPM:  

Obama didn't mention the U.S. Army exercise by name in an interview with former ESPNer Bill Simmons published in GQ this week. But when Simmons asked the President what he thought was the most entertaining conspiracy theory about himself, it was clear that Obama was having a laugh at the internet rumors surrounding "Jade Helm 15" that riled some southern states, particularly Texas, earlier this year. 

"That military exercises we were doing in Texas were designed to begin martial law so that I could usurp the Constitution and stay in power longer," he told Simmons. "Anybody who thinks I could get away with telling Michelle I’m going to be president any longer than eight years does not know my wife."

Yes I have to admit that the wingnuts response to Jade Helm was a thing of beauty.

Of course I am also partial to the "Obama took the oath of office on a Koran" and the "fake birth certificate" conspiracy theories as well.

Can you imagine serving two terms in what is arguably the most stressful job on the planet, while hearing people making up these crazed theories about you?

No wonder the man has grey hair. 

Have I mentioned lately how much I admire this guy?

    I admire him too and I am very proud to have voted for him!

      I suspect lots of women want to sleep with him and every other American man wants to be him...

      No need to bed him. He has a lovely,educated wife. I admire the man.

    Republican "musician" Ron Tankersley of Pasadena, Maryland, definitely has too much time on their hands.

    I work as a independent gardener. My husband rode by Ron's house one day on his Harley with a sidecar attached. There were some cabinets out by the road that my husband was interested in for his garage. My husband stopped and Ron told my husband he could have the cabinets. Ron also asked my husband to take him around the block in the sidecar which they did.

    We had to go back to Ron's house in my husband's truck to pick up the cabinets. While talking, I mentioned to Ron I was a gardener he might be interested in hiring to weed his well-designed by horribly weed-infested garden. Ron agreed, and I worked for him through that spring. Ron made it very no-fun to work for him, so that arrangement didn't last long.

    Anyway, Ron was always home, working in his detached garage at some type of musical project (he always locked himself in and I never knew exactly what he was doing). Ron has a schizo personality and OCD in a very bad way.

    One day I was reading a blog called Redmaryland and saw Ron and his music videos mentioned. I was very curious because now I could see what this man did behind his iron curtain (locked and barricaded garage).

    To make a long story short, if you listen to some of his videos, you will see Ron has potential, but he spends all his creative juice making hateful political videos. Hillary, Obama, and O'Malley all were the subject of some of them.

    I just thought Ron would be a good example of this type of person who spends all their time on nonproductive hate. I bet Ron calls himself a Christian.

    The man has grey hair because he'ls middle-aged.

    Sarah Palin is also quite grey under all that fake hair and dye and daughter's ministrations- she was already greying as governor, but probably only a woman would notice.

  4. 66gardeners12:21 PM

    I forgot to give you the link to Ron's video's. He is a real case.

  5. Anonymous12:32 PM

    Sarah Palin has gray hair too, but she covers it with wigs. Her hatred for the President has driven her more crazy than she was already.

    1. Anonymous1:23 PM

      And likely losing hair too. Drug use does that.

      I also sincerely doubt she still has her own teeth in her mouth

  6. Anonymous12:35 PM

    This word. Aplomb!!! Boy, this guy knows how to dis the doofuses without sounding whiny or peevish. How light hearted, witty and almost self deprecating can one man be? Talk about "Cult of Personality."

      Could you imagine how all-consuming this kind of bullshit would be with President The Donald?

    Sarah Palin governed the largest state in the union. Sarah can handle being president.

    1. Anonymous1:12 PM

      Sarah Palin quit her governing job barely two years into it. Maybe the largest state geographically but the smallest state in population. Sarah Palin could never handle being president, not even of a small company. She's not been able to handle being a parent, for heaven's sake.

    2. Anonymous1:19 PM

      Sure she did till she quit.

    3. Anonymous1:24 PM

      Well only until things get too tough and she bails again

      12:47President Palin? Of what? The PTA wouldn't even want her.

    5. Anonymous1:42 PM

      Sarah Palin failed to raise respectable children, and failed to keep her pimping husband. What qualifies the queen of stupid to be President? BTW, 12:47, 400 votes are not enough to win a Presidential election. You and 399 more fools would waste your uninformed votes. That Palin Koolaid must be quite strong.

      "Sarah Palin governed the largest state in the union with no people in it."

      Sarah Palin governed a lot of snow.

    7. Anonymous2:38 PM

      Sarah couldn't hack it. She had to have Toad be the shadow governor and she stayed home and read magazines.

      Sarah is a joke, who has been perpetuating a fake mythology for years now. Fake tan, fake tits, fake teeth, fake hair, fake resume, fake FB likes, fake butt pads, fake pregnancy, fake religiosity....just fake through and through. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence and awareness sees right through her. Obviously, you're an idiot.

      Alaska may be a big state, but that's just land mass. The number of people are minuscule compared to just one county in, let's just choose California.

      She not only doesn't have what it takes to run a country like the US, she couldn't even run a rinky dink little town like Wasilla without leaving it in massive debt and hiring someone to do her job so she could skip out on things. She's an abysmal parent who should be prosecuted for child abuse for the lack of care she's given to her adopted downs child. She's a lying scumbag in all she does. She is a whore to the core and was married to a pimp for a long, long time. She couldn't even get the father of her first kid to marry her, so instead she had him killed.

      Sarah hides behind Facebook and Twitter and never answers to anyone that way. She hides and protects herself from any sort of real scrutiny which would NOT happen if she really ran for office. She'd be annihilated.

      Sarah can't play in the big leagues, that became crystal clear during the 2008 debacle that was the McCain campaign. She just doesn't have what it takes. She's too insecure. She's not a team player, she craves attention just for herself.

      On top of that she's vile, crude, nasty, foul, drugged, drunk, ignorant, hateful, clueless, lewd and stinks to high heaven with her low class hygiene habits.

      You can dream, but your skank will NEVER run for anything again. Ever. Other than running from the authorities when her criminal enterprises get busted, which is close on the horizon.

    8. Palin didn't spend all her work time staying home and looking at the pretty pictures in magazines.

      She spent some of her work time shopping at Nordstrom.

      Worst governor ever.

    9. "largest state in the union"
      Oh, please, land mass only. The entire state has fewer people than many cities. As for governor, I guess that's why the legislature had to wear buttons saying "Where's Sarah?" Oh, and she couldn't be bothered to complete her term.

      Palin has demonstrated repeatedly that she is completely unfit to govern anything.

    10. Anonymous9:34 AM

      Sarah couldn't handle being a mayor. She had to hire a city manager to do her job for tiny wasilla. Meanwhile,she spent the tiny towns $$$ redecorating the mayors office like a whore house&Stealing city funded supplies for the new hockey rink,located on land belonging to someone else,to build her own Hockey rink house.

    I admire and respect President Obama and his beautiful wife and daughters.
    Thank you, Mr. President.

    1. Anonymous2:04 PM

      Barack and Michelle Obama are an inspiring couple. I hope their influence as role models continues.

  9. Anonymous1:09 PM

    I'll go one step further - "I love the guy"! And, delighted I voted for him both times.

    Fuck the Republicans that admonished him since the day he took his oath of office the first time! Does the asshole Mitch McConnell ring a bell?

    It really pisses them off he's done such an outstanding job - working around them - kicking them in the ass from behind, etc. It's a kick in the butt to watch and is only going to get better before he hands his office over to President Hillary Clinton!

  10. Anonymous1:26 PM

    I couldn't agree more. Obama has had to deal with more hatred and pettiness than any other president in history. But he never once lets it bother him. He's cool as ice.

    How I wish I could vote for him again in 2016. I have so much respect for him.

    1. And I am sure he would win again. His handling of the current refugee crisis just one of many, many examples of his grace under pressure.

    2. And I am sure he would win again. His handling of the current refugee crisis just one of many, many examples of his grace under pressure.

  11. President Obama and Michelle have so much class...I'm glad I voted for him TWICE. Can't wait for his book, or Michelle's book, or Sasha's or Malia's book when they can tell it like it was : )

  12. Let's not insult the word 'theory' by pretending there is some sort of rational analysis going on that results in the formulation of an intelligent idea. These fictions are conspiracy myths.

    1. Anonymous4:37 PM

      Thank you. Misuse of the word theory is what makes science illiterates think it's ok to say "evolution is only a theory". So is gravity. Both are well substantiated by repeated testing through experimentation. Even the fifth graders I work with know a guess is a hypothesis.

    O/T but Jesse, don't miss this fascinating article:

    The Page Who Took Down the GOP

    Why I leaked the scandalous Mark Foley messages—and what I regret about it.

    ...This was nine years after the FBI had barged into my parents’ house, more than a decade after the unsettling things I’d seen on Capitol Hill. It was the final thud of a decline that had reshaped Congress—and in which I’d played a pivotal role that almost nobody except those FBI agents knew.

    "does not know my wife." Too funny. Love this man and his wife. Will miss them. My fear is that we're going to get another Bush which will disasterous and frightening.

  15. Anonymous4:26 PM

    I admire this man and was privileged to work for his campaign twice, vote for him twice, and I wish he COULD run again. Something about being in office really ages the President, but on President Obama, it looks distinguished. I'm grateful for all he's accomplished, for the example his family and Mr Robinson set. Men like him are rare. Awarded the Nobel Prize before he even got rolling.

    How can we get President Obama back in the White house?
    Clinton/Obama 2016

    "However there is a theoretical loophole due to the wording of the 22nd amendment. The 22nd amendment only prevents an ineligible ex-president from being again elected to the office of President. It does not specifically rule on the situation where a former president is elected to the vice-presidency and subsequently "ascends" to the office."

    Obozo is a traitor for trying to bring those scumbag refugees into the country.
