    Don't feel bad, Mr. President. I think they were just hoping for a visit from Mrs. Obama.

    You were just kidding back there, right?

    President Obama walking out of the CIA Headquaters very disappointing after learning in a meeting that Leon Panetta and Stephen Kappes are the director and the deputy director of the CIA.

    I'm telling you, that dog is smart! We could not have planned it better and he already knows the enemy! Boehner wasn't even aware until he got up to walk out and heard the "squish"! Let's invite Rush. No, make it Steele and Rush! Maybe we need to run Bo through some training.

    I thought that the Brits always carried brief cases and umbrellas. Did you seed that dumb intelligence agent who was carrying Top Secret data in the open I guess their economy is so bad that they can't even afford file folders like us.
