“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Chairman Zero injects himself into Michael Vick's success

I thought Obama was supposed to be focused squarely on jobs and the flagging economy, not on weird phone calls congratulating an NFL owner on a good employment decision....

From SportsGrid -- Obama called Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and commended him for giving Vick the second chance many ex-prisoners never receive.

Would this phone call have been made if Vick's season had been a flop and he wasn't even starting? Like all politicians, Obama wants to be associated with the success and popularity of others. Also, would this call have been made if Lurie wasn't a big democrat donor and supporter of Obama's?

And lastly, call me racist if you want to but, would this call have been made if Vick was a white quarterback? You and I both know the answer to that....that's right, I said it!

Poor judgement, this was was an unnecessary and inappropriate phone call.

This demonstrates the level of buffoonery (and the buffoon) we have elected to leadership positions.

Blatant pandering (as if there is any other kind).

His defenders this morning on Fox&Friends tried to say it was a private phone call, but somebody pointed out that nothing the President does is private. Everything is intended for public consumption. Right she was.
