    Joe, do you just get off on nitpicking people over the dumbest things? Two comics in a row I see you doing this.

    This is how the president who wanted to bring us all together celebrates the 4th?

    Ps. Some of those who reply below miss GT’s point. BHO is our leader, in the White House where he–more than either of his two immediate predecessors–belongs on our nation’s birthday.

    Deo gratias.

    Reminds me of an old joke. Q: Do they have Fourth of July in England? A: Of course, silly. They have July fourth everywhere they have July. Happy Independence Day Joe! Happy Fourth of July to the rest of you.

    Of course, Joe, you know the Declaration was not signed on the Fourth of July, don’t you?

    LOL, perfect analogy of how the American public views it’s President. Great job GB! Happy 4th to all my Yank homies!

    Yeah. A fallible human being with a great family. Happy Independence Day, Mr. President.

    To all our service people overseas, who might also be shaving under less than ideal circumstances, Happy 4th of July, May God bless you, and bring you home safely.

    Thank you, Thirdguy. A truly awesome sentiment.

    The time has come Said a young man to his bride The train waits outside And though I leave You know I’ll keep you by my side She holds on a final time Soldier’s gone to war Told her he’s comin’ home Soldier’s gone to war He’s gonna be a hero in his hometown, lord She stands alone On a platform lookin’ sad He waves through a pane of glass And though she hopes He will be comin’ home at last Her heart knows what’s gonna pass Soldier has gone to war Don’t know it, but he ain’t comin’ home no more Soldier has gone to war He’s gonna be known as a hero in his hometown, lord Soldier’s gone to war Told her he’s comin’ home Soldier has gone to war He’s gonna be known as a hero in his hometown, lord The paper falls to the floor from a trembling hand The words they burn to the soul And though she cries, she doesn’t really understand The world’s gone so cold Soldier went to war Told her he’d be comin’ home Soldier went to war Gonna be a big hero in his hometown, lord And the stories tell of bravery, yeah He was golden as the sun Well he fought for you and he fought for me, yeah And he died for everyone Stories of a hero Stories of a hero Well it seems as though the world ain’t changed It goes on and on for years When men must die to be called brave To earn respect among their peers Stories of a hero Stories of a hero

    TIGGER Can’t help but agree and GT didn’t show half the broken promises.

    JOE Happy Independence Day from one vet to another. May we all be grateful for the sacrifices freely given by those who never returned. You and me have the freedom to disagree. I guarantee we will.

    Today is actually Malia’s 12th birthday - saw it in the paper today.

    If I may, I believe the point is less that Pres. Obama himself has not fixed these things than that he and the Congress together have not fixed these things. He, after all, is not the federal government.

    Happy Fourth, everyone!

    (begin sarcasm) I know what we need and I don’t know why we never thought of it before.

    We need a president that does everything he or she says she or he will do and do it immediately regardless of petty interference by powerless entities such as congress and the supreme court.

    We need a president that will do what every single person in the U.S. wants a president to do. We need a president to overcome the silly fact that the country is divided against it self. We need a president that will make all our differences disappear overnight and not disappoint any of us.

    I just don’t understand why such a simple solution hasn’t been applied sooner. (end sarcasm)

    I declare now and forever.

    YOU DO NOT EXIST AND YOU NEVER DID!

    There! That solves that problem!

    Oh, and BTW, horace, I deeply admire your avatar, it fits you precisely.

    And Joe. Happy Indeefourthance day.

    Happy Fourth to all others.

    He probably cut himself while shaving, and he already has gray hairs.

    Let’s see: No previous mangerial/executive experience; a poor voting record as a U.S. Senator; He’s perfect for the job of POTUS!

    Now, if we could have you provide us with copies of your long-form birth certificate, school records and travel records…

    Today I celebrate my independence by invoking my right to call the day the 4th of July No small minded nit picker has the right to tell me that I can’t call it that

    I’m surprised no nitpicker has yet pointed out that today is NOT Independence Day, but the anniversary of it.
