By now you've read or heard about the chattering classes who went all Edith Head over President Obama's sartorial choice the day he gave a press conference to discuss ISIS.  Some people even went so far as to suggest he was thumbing his nose at the American people by wearing this perfectly normal and, may I add, natty attire.  

Seriously, America?  You, well not all of you, went bonkers over a tan suit?  Please.  Do yourself a favor and go out and live.  You're embarrassing yourself over this.

BTW, when it comes to wearing of the tan, Mr. Reagan takes the title of Mr. Tan Suit President. Not nice of him to thumb his nose at the American people!  And so many times!

Barry Wears It Better!

Is President Reagan Thumbing His Nose At Australia's Prime Minister?

Doesn't he respect Justice O"Connor?  He's wearing TAN!

Uh-Oh!  Again?  And in the Oval Office!  Quick where's the fainting couch!

Signing the VERY SERIOUS legislation for Japanese reparation.  IN A TAN SUIT!!!

That's it for the silliness.  

Now back to serious  chocolate and wine.

"Guess whose tan suit didn't contain a black guy." Exactly. Other Presidents have worn more tan suits, taken more vacation time, used more executive orders, etc., etc., etc. than Obama -- but it's suddenly an issue when Obama does those things -- because it's Obama who's doing them.

The hypocrisy is blatant, and abject.

I understand the wingnuts are really p.o.'d because they've discovered Mr. Obama AND his entire family also eat, sleep, and breathe in the WHITE House.

Who does Obama think he is? The leader of the free world or something?

People criticize fashion when they have nothing else to criticize.

Rational Nation USA said...

There are certainly things to criticize Jerry, it's just the people criticizing the President's suit selection do so because of an agenda. One not based on reason or much else of value.

Some whiney bagger said Obama's tan suit made him look yellow and the bagger wondered if Obama was jaundiced.

No. He's not. Only the people who observe him are.

jaundiced: exhibiting or influenced by envy, distaste, or hostility -- (a jaundiced eye)

"The hypocrisy is blatant, and abject."

Please - it is not hypocrisy. It is hatred; pure, seething, blind hatred. Hatred that so pollutes the person, that nothing is safe, nothing.

This hatred will lead to serious trouble for all, the individual, those around the individual, the nation, and the world.

Ronnie Raygun wore an ice cream suit?

Who knew?

The tan suit kerfluffle should have been expected, since the hysterics on the right never miss an opportunity to trash the president or his wife, even when that trashing makes them look like morons.

Anonymous, the rightwingers have been pulling their hair out over the idea of the Obamas getting the White House since November 2008.

J.C. people criticize dumb things when they have little rattling around in their skulls

RN, were you surprised at this? I wasn't. Same old same old. Yawn.

TYF, what? they're even giving him long-distance medical exams? Their jealously of this man is hilarious! Little minds worry about little things.

Ema, yes hatred is what drives this. What an awful way to live one's life. PS. I understand from an email I got the other day that some wingnut thinks you and I are one and the same. I'm honored if they think so. It seems their little minds can't conceive of more than one liberal being able to call them out on their silliness and hypocrisy.

Good going Ema!

Nancy's Ray Gun (LOL!) Yeah. When their heroes do stuff it's always okay. BTW, I thought Ronnie made a very cute ice cream man. He was sooooo vanilla, wasn't he.

Reagan in a tan suit?

Lisa said...

Personally I think he should have worn his clown suit,it would have "suited" him much better

Rusty Old Ford said...

It wasn't the color of his SUIT that disturbed the wackos on the right.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Lisa, see Rusty's comment.

Nancy's Ray Gun said...

hey shaw tell your 'friend' lisa that Ronnie already took the title of 'America's favorite clown' years ago, in fact, he retired the it.

Lisa said...

Yeah Shaw I see it ,so? All the racists just hate that a black man is the president.
Oh and the republicans hate women,hispanics,asians,hatians,gays.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Lisa: "All the racists just hate that a black man is the president."

Yes, Lisa. Racist DO hate that a black man is the president. A true statement.

Lisa: "Oh and the republicans hate women,hispanics,asians,hatians,gays."

Not true. Not ALL Republicans hate all those mentioned above.

But it is the Republican Party that proposed legislation to make it extremely difficult for women to obtain a legal medical procedure.
It is the Republican Party that proposed state-sanctioned rape of women when GOP governors thought mandatory vaginal probes for girls and women seeking abortions was a peachy idea.

It's been certain member of the GOP who have been against equality of marriage for ALL AMERICANS.

The GOP has also voted against immigration reform and especially the Dream Act, which would allow children who were brought here by undocumented workers as babies and grew up in America. The GOP has voted against and will block any legislation that addresses this.

And just this past week WOMEN OF THE GOP THEMSELVES have said that where women's issues are involved, the GOP is "stuck in the past," and "intolerant."

The above was not stated by Democrats but by Republican women who were polled by Republican polling organizations.

So yeah, the GOP maybe doesn't HATE all of those groups you named, but they sure work very hard to make their lives more miserable, even though gays, blacks, hispanics, etc., are some of their "best friends."

"The GOP has also voted against immigration reform and especially the Dream Act, which would allow children who were brought here by undocumented workers as babies and grew up in America.">

Sorry about the incomplete sentence.

It should read:

The GOP has also voted against immigration reform, and especially the Dream Act, which would allow children who were brought here by undocumented workers as babies and grew up in America the opportunity to become legal citizens of the U.S.

"I don’t think, and never have thought, that Obama gives a rat’s POOP what his legacy will be. He wants his money, he’s made fun celebrity friends and that’s that. And yes, he’ll blame Bush!"

Shaw Kenawe said...

StCs, was that on your fb site? I can't believe it! Have you turned into a parody site now and writing your own material?

That's too silly to be true.
