    During the debates I read several comments that said Obama appeared like he didn't really want to run this time around. That and the idea that Obama is claiming to have been out of the loop on the Libya attacks made me think of this:

    What would lead a man to fight so hard for job he doesn't want to do? Or just won't do?

    Is this the ultimate in narcissism?

    Heck no, but he is going to ride the money train as long as he can.

    Isn't just wanting the money in the same vein as just wanting the title? Isn't that the heart of narcissism?

    He can sit back and proudly declare that he ran, and won, the presidency and thereby cemented himself as 1 of the rare few to hold that office. Now he can have everyone else do the work while he gets the glory and they get the blame. At the end of his term (be it 4 years or 8) he can finally move on to the next thing.

    We are talking about a man who became president and has absolutely no experience.

    Look at it this way, if he does ehhh, gag, cough, (sorry) manage to be potus again a 2nd term, gag, cough (again apologize)ahhhh.... then we can impeach the SOB for Benghazi. Thats some consolation anyway.:D Now I'm feeling better.....gotta think on the bright side of things. :thumbs:

    Would that we could flog him for his putting us in deep deep debt. That would be heaven!

    And at the end of the first 4 years---he will still have no(zilcho) experience!! And if he wins re-election---he will go into his 2nd term with NO experience and will finally end the full 8 years still having absolutely NO experience!!!

    I fear his world view is getting Americans killed.:mad: There is my reason to gravitate to the Mormon Block of wood with eyes. Worse he's done (that I am aware of) is strapped his dog to the roof of his vehicle. If I were POTUS, Id insist we strap Ole Mitt to the roof of a station wagon & send him on a coast to coast road trip. He might have a little more sensitivity after that. Then Id bring back keel hauling & Water Boarding as legitimate ....oh never mind, just having a beautiful fantasy! :smilewinkgrin:

    Romney probably hasn't done anything more to his dog than I have done to the ones I've had in my 50ish years of living!! You know---I believe it won't be long before "Animal Rights" groups start cryin' like a bunch of babies over the idea of dog owners allowing their dogs to ride in the bed of their pickup trucks!! I had a dog that loved to ride in back of the truck---he'd jump in the bed of the p/u and off I'd go---I'd look in the reirview mirror and the K-9 would be just as happy as a Lark!! Tongue hangin' out of his mouth---slobber goin' everywhere---I'd swerve to one side of the road--and the dog would start scramblin' and clawin'---trying to get a grip----I'd hit the brakes a little and he'd fly forward---but was happy doin' it!!!!

    If I did that nowadays----mercy---animal right lovers would have me arrested!!!!!!:laugh::laugh:

    I believe in my area you cannot have your dog in the bed unless he is chained there. Better to risk hanging him than risk falling out I guess. :BangHead:




    BTW....my furry four legged daughter rides in the cab with me. Which reminds me....I need to put a towel in the truck before I take her swimming in the river again. :laugh:

    In New Jersey, they just passed a law that you have to have a pet strapped in. I still would put Romney on the roof rack ..... he might like it! :laugh:
