Photos: Squee! Obama went to church today; Lapdogs giddily wag their tails

In case the press didn’t break the oh-so-exciting news fast enough, there was a flyer letting everyone know that President Obama would be attending church today. Yes, really. A flyer.

My family.... And President Obama's family came to meet with Jesus this morning!!!

Twice! He went to this church twice. No wonder all the squeeing. Look, guys! He’s totally churchy and stuff.

Congregants squee.

My family.... And President Obama's family came to meet with Jesus this morning!!!

#Obama at my church. #hyped

Also squeeing? The press.

Lapdogs wag their little tails madly.

Did he mention the funerals?!

Whew! Nice save, lapdog Dan!


Associated Press:

Washington Post:

Oh, good grief.



Of course not.

Don’t expect members of the media to ask anything like that. They are far too busy swooning over President Photo Op.

  • Joe W.

    Isn’t an “African” church just a tad bit “RACIST”?????

    • $21367552

      You may want to try reading some basic history once in awhile, the African Methodist Episcopal church was started because its members and clergy were tired of the racism coming from YOUR good kind white Christian loving ancestors in the mainstream Methodist churches.

      • Joe W.

        Who cares why it was founded, Scooter?? The KKK was founded as well. Both are racist, and the KKK has been disbanded and vilified for being so. Why do we allow such segregationist entities such as this “church”, the Congressional Black Caucus, The United Negro College Fund, The NAACP, et al??? That is racist, pal. Straight up.

        • BeeKaaay

          The KKK hasn’t been disbanded, it was absorbed into its Mother Ship, the Marxicrat party.

        • JustLikeAnimals

          Blacks insist on separating and labeling themselves, and then complain that they are treated differently. Wow.

          • Sons Thunder

            It’s fun (and easy) when you can make a charge against an entire race as opposed to judging each person as an individual!

          • Joe W.

            And what percentage of blacks voted for Barack Obama, Sport??

          • Sons Thunder

            I fail to see your point…

            If I were to guess from your non sequitur, it’s something like: “Racism is OK because the overwhelming majority of voting blacks voted for Obama.”

            However, that is such a ridiculous argument, I’m sure I missed your point. Could you clarify?

          • Joe W.

            If you cannot see my point that if 95% of a specific race vote for the candidate OF the same race does not indicate a degree of racism, then you clearly DO have a reading comprehension issue. Among other, I might add. How in the world do you get the idea that I believe racism is O.K.??

          • Sons Thunder

            I was criticizing someone for making a blanket statement about black people. Your ‘answer’ was to call me zippy.

            Seems you are fine with blanket charges against black people but have a problem with me having the bad manners to mention it.

            P.S. Yes, of course race was a factor in blacks voting for Obama.

          • WVS

            I think he’s saying that it’s hypocritical for any race to demand that no differences among races be recognized, then vote radically differently from the population as a whole and create the kind of overtly divisive organizations he mentions.

            – It’s not okay to have a Nat’l Association for the Advancement of White People. Why is the NAACP okay?

            – Let me know if you find a college scholarship for whites only, or a “historically white college.” Why is it okay the other way around?

            – If 93% of white people voted against Obama, many openly admitting race was the dominant factor, imagine the outcry! Why is it okay for black voters?

            – If a white preacher stood up and called down curses on America on behalf of his race, he would be scorned. If a black preacher does it, he becomes spiritual advisor to the President. Why is that okay?

            – If a white President attended a “Caucasian Methodist Episcopal Church,” wouldn’t there be a problem with that? Why is an exclusively black church so politically palatable, then?

            There was a time in this country when the divide between races was deep, wide, and unbridged. That’s true. But even the last remnants of segregation were never experienced by a majority of African-Americans alive today. Today, even after four years of Obama, there is still opportunity for everyone–in fact, there are some opportunities only afforded to those who may be at some disadvantage because of our past. Match a white guy up against a minority woman for a job opening; all qualifications and skills being equal, I’ll bet my life savings on who gets hired. My point is, there’s no reason to continue dividing Americans by race. And it was an appeal to that division that propelled the current President to the Oval Office for a second time.

          • PennyRobinsonFanClub

            Yeah, aint them white folk a piece of work?

        • Dennis Coarcher

          Where do you get your inaccurate information? Reading the media hype is not good for your brain. The KKK is alive and well. Get your head out of Obamas buttocks and grow up.

          • Joe W.

            Hey Dennis, you may wish to re-read my post and maybe check my profile. You will find that the LAST place you will find my head is anywhere NEAR the POS Barky, and I do NOT EVER read the MSM. EVER. Furthermore, could you please direct me to some current coverage of some KKK events? They don’t seem nearly as public or common that the NAACP, CBC nor this “African” church. You are picking a fight with one of your own, pal, but rock on. I’m up for it…

      • TugboatPhil

        The Republican party was started to oppose slavery, but you don’t give a crap about that. Same as the KKK started by southern Democrats to intimidate freed blacks.

      • JustLikeAnimals

        Get over it. The Indians did, and we shot at them.

      • Joe W.

        BTW…MY ancestors were NOT Methodists, Zippy. They were Protestants…

      • Guest

        Said the angry racist who hates and blames whitey for everything. YAWN. So predictable.

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Read YOUR history. Abolitionism STARTED as a movement among the churches of the north and made it literally a holy crusade. Read all the verses to “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” sometime.

      • PIPPatriot

        No You should try reading basic history, before you try to teach anyone about civil rights, churches and politics. Obviously you’ve been mislead.


    racist church with a racist president.

    • Johnny Drew

      “President Photo Op”

      Man, twichty, your not hiding your hatred for the black man in the oval office anymore, huh! I expected that you were a racist, just like ANYBODY who makes a federal out of EVERYTHING thing man does!

      Umm.. Dr. King wasn’t a racist…. People compare Dr. King and Obama because they are both sources of inspiration and pride to the Black community, and they are both great orators.

      So he hates his white mother and grandparents who raised him and put him on the
      right path in life, or is it his Black father who abandoned him that he hates? How stupid ARE you? Very stupid. Obama is NO racist, you are!

      President Obama a recollection: Was born in Hawaii to a mixed ethnicity family;
      Was raised by a single parent; Saw and lived in a foreign culture for a few
      years; Returned to Hawaii while Read More… His family was so poor, they lived
      on food stamps. He studied at 2 Universities. Majored in constitutional law; Was
      the top of his class on graduation; Turned down million dollar job offers to
      work with the poor, disposed, dispossessed and disenfranchised, for a pittance;
      Became a constitutional Professor; State senator, Senator, Has a loving highly
      gifted wife and well adjusted children; Has just paid off his first house; Has a
      net worth of 8.4 million dollars; Is the first president to pay for renovating
      the living quarters in the White House out of his own pocket and returned the
      amount allotted for this to every president, back to the treasury; Has tried to
      govern from the middle, much to the chagrin of the left base; Has adopted
      Republican ideas when he saw value in them only to have the Republicans obstruct
      even their own ideas; He has an outstanding list off accomplishments and
      successes as President and is too humble to beat his own drum about them; Has
      gone from poverty to President; He doesn’t use religion as a wedge issue to
      divide the nation: He survived the most dishonest campaign and propaganda event
      in the entire history of the United States, He turned the economy around from
      net job losses in the first quarter of 2008 to 32 months of job creation,
      through his foresight and in spite unparalleled obstruction by those avowed to
      destroy his presidency, even if it meant destroying the economy and shattering
      real people’s lives. Thank whatever God you believe in that he won because his
      loss would have brought back the same team that nearly destroyed the world
      economy and went to wars for personal enrichment while Americas sons and
      daughters lost their lives for no bid contracts and big oil.The whole world
      breathed a sigh of relief on Nov 7.Congratulations Mr. President,

      • Guest

        Yay!!! Your brain washing is complete you mindless puppet!!! All I see is an evil man who made sure it was legal to kill a full term baby as it’s coming down the birth canal. As a Christian I pity you and your soul.

        • Sons Thunder

          Christ was well known for calling the children of his political opponents ugly brats? Guess I need to brush up on The New Testament as well as Burke.

          • Guest

            I suggest 5 hour energy shot. That way you can type into the night defending Barry. Or at least until lights out at the nut house. p.s. I never called them brats as I don’t know how they behave. I called them ugly which anyone with eyes can see. Get it straight. In your haste to defend your starting to ramble. Take a deep breath and resume Christian bashing and defending a murderer.

          • Sons Thunder

            It was your esteemed colleague Joe W. who called the president’s daughters brats. I assumed you read his post as it was the one to which you first replied.

            It took a Christian to call two young girls ugly.

            P.S. No one has ever bothered to answer how a church newsletter is comparable to a nationwide ad campaign.

          • Guest

            Hmmmm? Judge me for telling the truth calling the girls ugly and with the same breath give Obama a free pass for being a baby killer? Typical Liberal HYPOCRITE. From the desperate attempts for attention ( even knowing it’s going to be negative) to the constant roundy round the facts I genuinely feel sorry for you. You keep going though because it is amusing watching you scramble and reading your juvenile posts with the occasional big word in there for emphasis.

          • Sons Thunder

            I realize you disagree with Roe v. Wade but it isn’t relevant to this discussion.

            Not engaging you an yet another off-topic subject doesn’t make me a hypocrite (even when you type it in all caps). I would suggest the one who keeps changing the subject is the one ‘scrambling.’

            You call my comments juvenile yet I have made my points without picking on a couple of grade school girls.

            I noticed you misspelled ‘a lot’ and used ‘your’ instead of the appropriate ‘you’re’ in your posts but we all make mistakes from time to time and I didn’t want to be small and ignore your argument over your grammatical/spelling errors. I believe the vocabulary I choose can be understood by most 6th graders. I’m sorry if you think my words are ‘big.’

            I guess no one is going to explain to me how a church newsletter is comparable to a national ad campaign by the NRA.

            Also – God doesn’t make ugly children. Some of them, unfortunately, turn into ugly adults.

          • Guest

            So being a murderer isn’t relevant? I believe you were the one harping on character or lack there of. Thanks for pointing out my grammatical errors. I’m sure you need that to feel superior I noticed you jumped on it like a life preserver. Pathetic. Probably not hugged enough as a child but my guess is no Father in the house. Put some fresh band-aids on your finger tips and keep typing you attention seeking douche canoe!!! p.s. Why are you even on this site? Don’t you have a Muslim Brotherhood Rally to attend? p.s.s. They are still ugly. p.s.s.s. off topic doesn’t need a hyphen dunce.

          • Sons Thunder

            My father was a good and decent man who served his country in WWII.

            You say I jumped on your mistakes like a life preserver when I avoided bringing them up until you introduced my vocabulary as a topic. Then you (inaccurately, I might add) tried to school me in the proper spelling of off-topic.

            You claim to be a Christian but feel it is appropriate to slander an honorable man who I miss everyday. You claim I am juvenile but you use terms like ‘douche canoe’ and seem to delight in calling a couple of grade school girls ugly.

            This is my last response to your hate-filled (please note my continued proper use of the hyphen) comments. My dad always liked the old adage about not wrestling with a pig because it only gets you dirty and makes the pig happy.

          • Guest

            Sure he was. Believing you would be like trusting Obama. Not going to happen. For a Vets kid you sure are weak.. I can see you blotting tears right now. Suck it up Buttercup. My husband is a combat soldier of 8 years and gets treated like dirt and his voting ballots mysteriously lost in the mail. Your Dad was not a man of honour or he wouldn’t of raised someone who defends a baby killer. I don’t blame you for not wanting to reply back even a dumb lib such as yourself knows when they’ve been beat. p.s. They’re getting uglier as I type. p.s.s. Get your G.E.D. before you try schooling others on anything. p.s.s.s. I can see I nailed it with the Douche Canoe (You) comment. That’s gotta sting.

          • PennyRobinsonFanClub

            Yeah, ’cause the Demonrats and the Collaborationist Media NEVER launched hateful, vicious attacks on the children of President George W. Bush or Governor Sarah Palin, did they?

  • TugboatPhil

    Why are those people shamelessly using pictures of Obama’s kids in their tweets?

    Even the NRA never showed their pictures or mentioned them by name.

    • Sons Thunder

      So…a church uses a publicly available image of the president and his children..,and that is comparable to the NRA ad because…?

      • TugboatPhil

        The people tweeting did. Check your area for reading comprehension classes.

        • Sons Thunder

          I asked “…and that is comparable to the NRA ad because…?”

          and you answered “the people tweeting did.”

          Your ‘answer’ doesn’t even remotely make sense in relation to the question. I don’t even know what your ‘answer’ is attempting to answer.

          In this case, MY reading comprehension was not the problem.

          • TugboatPhil

            Your question was connecting both of my sentences which you used to frame your question.

            Your inability to understand what is being discussed would lead most functioning adults to believe that you have a problem with either words in general or the English language, possibly both.

            I’ll do my best to simplify ideas for you in the future. That is if you’re still communicating with me. I hope this doesn’t preclude us from one day being BFFs.

          • Sons Thunder

            Once more: When someone asks you to clarify a point about an idea, the answer should contain a ‘what’ (idea) as opposed to a ‘who’ (person).

            P.S. You never answered the question. What is the relationship between the newsletter and the NRA ad? I believe you were trying to make some point about hypocrisy but don’t believe you have succeeded.

          • Lisa Dean

            Read his first post very slowly. I’ve explained it in a previous response to you. I love how you keep posting the same question regarding the relevance between a church bulletin and the NRA ad.

          • Joe W.

            Idiot…He said the people “Tweeting” were using the photo…NOT the church. As Tugboat said, try looking up a reading comprehension course. You clearly, are lacking in the skill.

          • Sons Thunder

            Well, I don’t believe that’s what he was saying at all. The church was clearly using the photo in a newsletter. One person listed in this piece tweeted a picture of said newsletter.

            Aside from that. If you read what I asked (how is the use of a public domain pic of the president and his kids comparable to the NRA ad), you may notice that my question asks about an idea (i.e., ‘what’) as opposed to any specific people ‘i.e., ‘who’).

          • Joe W.

            I counted about a half dozen Tweets with links to that “Instagram”, Zippy. And I am certain that the Twitterverse was chock full of them. Nice try. Thanks for playing…

          • Sons Thunder

            I have tried as hard as I can to make clear that there’s no disagreement about the picture being used in a church newsletter & tweets.

            My question was (and remains): What is the connection to the NRA ad?

          • Joe W.

            You are suggesting that it’s O.K. to exploit the Obama brats when it benefits the loser, but it is NOT O.K. when used to criticize him. IS THAT CLEAR??? If not…seek help…I am tired of you…

          • Sons Thunder

            A church newsletter used a public domain picture of the Obama family to promote the president’s upcoming visit. Some people tweeted pictures of said newsletter.

            The NRA made an ad criticizing the president and citing the fact his daughter’s go to school with armed guards.

            I didn’t suggest anything. I asked what one had to do with the other.

            P.S. The president’s daughters are 11 and 14 years old. You may dislike their father but calling them brats is tacky.

          • Guest

            I guess telling the truth and calling them ugly is out then?

          • Sons Thunder

            You certainly have the freedom to say so if you wish.

            Aside from being irrelevant in a discussion of politics, I think it says a lot about your character and sense of propriety that you would.

          • Guest

            Wow dude your fingers must be bloody from furiously typing for the last 3 hours defending your master that pretty much everyone is hip to but you. I think it says alot about your character when you troll a conservative site defending a baby killer. Top priority for ya huh? p.s. They’re still ugly.

          • Sons Thunder

            What an astute and persuasive political point!

            I asked someone to explain how a church newsletter was comparable to a nationwide ad campaign.

            For an answer, I learned that two young girls (11 & 14 years old), who have the temerity to be the president’s daughters are ugly brats.

            I guess I need to re-read my Burke; I seemed to have missed the point the first time around.

          • Lisa Dean

            He didn’t say anything about the church in his first post (go back and read it again), he said “Why are those people shamelessly using pictures of Obama’s kids in their tweets”? Reading comprehension really isn’t your thing is it?

  • Right Wired

    I wonder if the souls of the millions of children he has allowed to be murdered will pay him a visit.

    So Bronco went to church. I’m seeing him in a whole new light now and have to re-evaluate my opinion of him {eyeroll}…..

    I’d like to get a ruling on this play from the press: Is this second visit to this church twice as “historic” or half as “historic” ? Does the “historic” multiply or get diluted ?

    Sorry that I have to ask, but I’d like to know how much praise to heap his way…..

    Our catholic church bulletins have Christ on the front. The AME has the Obamas on theirs. Very telling.

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    You are the one who is grossly ill-informed if you believe that any significant part of the distaste shown around here for that person is related to his color. Yes, every once in a while a poster will show who makes crude racial innuendo; such an individual does not last long. As few as they are, I can’t help but think that most of them are simply disinformational plants from the left, thinking they will incite someone else into a real hateful outpouring of bigotry — much as they tried in the past with Tea Party and other conservative gatherings. It is the Left who are the real racists, as witness their furious assaults and whirlwinds of invective against any black man or woman who expresses support for the Republican Party or conservative principles in general. The first thing to pour forth from their lips is a hysterical condemnation of such a person for “forgetting who he is” or some such accusation, that is, a “real” black person MUST be a Democrat. And what, I ask you, is more racist — what COULD be more racist — than demanding that someone’s political persuasion be decided by the color of his skin?
