Whatever his obvious partisan sympathies, Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States and there is protocol and (one would hope) a dignity we expect our President to maintain. But Obama is a whole other animal. That someone of such low character, limited experience and hatred for America could be elected President of these United States is a testament to the power the left wields in the media, culture, and academia.

Obama is a lowlife.

“Obama to skip Scalia funeral,” By Eliza Collins, Politico, February 17, 2016:

President Barack Obama will not attend Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral on Saturday, the White House said Wednesday. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden will attend.

Obama and first lady Michelle Obama instead will go to the Supreme Court on Friday “to pay their respects to Justice Scalia” while the justice lies in repose in the Great Hall, press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Wednesday.

The most recent member of the Supreme Court to die was Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 2005. In that instance, President George W. Bush not only attended the funeral, he also eulogized Rehnquist.

Scalia’s death ripped open a political seam when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell almost immediately issued a statement calling for Scalia’s replacement to be delayed until the next president is in office. The White House has promised to nominate someone before the election.

    This Country just lost one the great mind’s on the US Supreme Court! Now Obama has a chance to appoint a new Supreme Court Justice. If the Senate confirms anyone that Obama wants, the entire course of this country will forever be lost!

    Obama is slowly turning our country into the next Detroit, and we cannot allow that to happen.

    Under Obama, a large percentage of us are on public welfare programs like food stamps, section 8 housing, and SSI, because of low wages. Health insurance is unaffordable (mine is $450/month… contrast this to my $24/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda… or my $11/month life insurance). Two thirds of young adults have student loans to which they cannot pay back due to lack of good jobs in the community.

    Is this the kind of country we want? It’s time for republicans to finally UNITE!

    RIP Justice Scalia!!

    • kat

      The fact that there is 5 cases pending right now in the Supreme Court that directly effect Obama should be reason enough for him not to be allowed to appoint a judge to the seat. It is a conflict of interest.

      • Lorialpine

        You’re responding to an insurance ad.

      FLAGGED again, “Ashley”.

        Thank you Lorialpine! I have added Ashley to my growing list of Panda scammers.

      I think we are going to see the largest uprising of Republicans in our history, and the Democrats will be left with nothing. Does anybody believe even one Republican who will sit out election day? I will spend the night at the polls so I can be among the first to vote out that worthless clown running for the Democraps..

      • zipper

        You mean you don’t like Hillary “Soon to be Indicted” Clinton, or Bernie “Psst, I’m really a Communist” Sanders?

  • JimSherwood3

    I suspect that this is merely a security tactic advised by the Secret Service. He will attend but unannounced.

    • Traci

      I suspect that you are wrong, but I guess we’ll see

      • Richard

        Traci, I think Mr. Sherwood is simply carrying water for Obama.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Douche water.

    • imakymama

      Yeah, right…..And why can’t Josh Earnest tell the American people just where Barack Hussein Obama will be that day?

      • hardhats

        You know Earnest is just biding his time to be able to sit next to Joe (fake Republican) Scarborough every morning.

      • zipper

        Because we all can guess– in a mosque, praying towards Mecca.

    • TotallyDomestic

      It is a middle finger to the Judge by BO

    • zipper

      Yeah, as the grave digger.

  • Lawman45

    So the Republicans in the Senate will not attend (“hold”) any hearings on any Obama nomination go fill Scalia’s seat.

    • Voytek Gagalka

      You wish! That would be the most historic breakthrough. No, I don’t believe it will happen. They are like sheeps and they will not only attend but confirm whoever O chooses without much deliberation. They will never DARE to oppose: they will be called racists, islamophobes (in the case Mohammedan will be considered), or sexists (in the case of a woman). They are scared to death with such name calling and so far never challenged anyone who issued them.

    • ZaMan

  • jack crabb

    I think I can safely say that Justice Scalia would not have want Obama there either! RIP Nino.

    • Fred

      Best post of the day. I wouldn’t want these Obama dirt bags anywhere near me.

      I don’t know who’s worse Obama or the mayor in NYC. I heard cops say they didn’t want him at their funeral should they male the ultimate sacrifice.

      • joe1429

        They both the same… big bird, took a city that was handed to him in good shape… and is racing it to the bottom, with the help of crime fudging stats… per bratton, a once good police commish, who lost all respect for himself!

    • Obama subhuman scum

      The family should not allow him to go even if he wanted to.

    • Dave J Lawson

      Dems are working to a plan to load SC with liberal judges , while spineless corrupt / incompetent Republicans support Obama and his plans.
      Didn’t they just vote for Budget that includes support for planned parenthood , Amnesty , bringing in syrian jihadis funded and paid for tax payers ?

      Only Trump talks against these sewer rat RINO’s , Not Ted , Not Rubio because they supported Amnesty , never were strong opponent of illegal immigrants based on their voting patterns.

    • Rob Porter

      Well said. Jack! Scalia wouldn’t have wanted such a piece of under-shoe dog poo scrapings to attend his funeral.

  • wearsgirl

    What a douch_.

    • whatwouldrepublicanjesusdo

      True, but he’s dead now, so it’s not nice to say it.

      • Richard

        It appears that you are calling Scalia the douch_. Please clarify your comment.

        • whatwouldrepublicanjesusdo

          Wow, you’re extremely astute. Scalia was a plague pustule, growing and poisoning America with his bile and corruption. Him dying is the best thing he’s ever done for the US.

    • Dr. Doomsday

      .. Daesh..

  • Mahou Shoujo

    A funeral is to show respect, it is respectful to the departed that hussain stay away, his presence would contaminate the memorial.

    • catinpvb

      As American leader; he reps the sympathies of a nation, long the beneficiary of the wisdom of Justice Scalia. They should be represented; if by President only. That said; know the fake tears are a challenge (he is no Bill Clinton); and hearing the Cathedral ring with praise of an honest, authentic and brilliant man and Patriot. . . for Obama, is no doubt; a hellish experience. And so it easy to see why he cannot be there; and why, other than his giving embarrassing; pathetic personal testimony by his absence; one might easily say. . .be damned and be off, Obama.

      Enjoy that golf game or ‘whatever’; but do not think; the world does not yet, recognize the degraded excuse for a President and an American, for that matter; per the ‘who’ – what – that you are.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The world and many Americans are ignoring hussain, he is a useless figurehead, a liability on the ship of state.

        • ZaMan

          Holy crap. As usual, Obama-haters are the biggest racists, bigoted turds in America today. Not to mention damn hypocrites. talk about decency and respect, yet you attack the man’s wife and children!

          Look at all these conservatives whining over Obama not showing up to attend a KKK RACIST white trash UNJustice Scalia funneral.

          He’s damned if he does, and damned if he don’t. President Obama will be paying his respect to Justice Scalia on Friday. You people act like he’s not paying his respects at all. btw Granny Bush didn’t stop playing golf while we had troops being killed in Iraq and Afganistan. he never bothered to meet ANY of our dead soldiers caskets back on U.S. soil. He was to busy playing golf to attend, or console the families, of the dead soldiers return home, from an illegitimate war he started based on lies. Now watch this drive.

          Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!

          • Mahou Shoujo

            You are still an idiot.

            Figures. Continuing the the obvious fact that many hypocrisy in your
            post and the inability to formulate a refute anything I said, you resort
            to character assassination and no proof at all to back up lies..

          • Mahou Shoujo

            You have downgraded yourself to unobservant introspective idiot. In your case, it is not character assassination, it is merely a statement of the obvious.

          • David

            Zaman is Za idiot, Obama is nothing more than a waste of space he has done nothing but undermine the office of president and together with his brood cost the US tax payer a fortune. one of the candidates in the running for the next president said they wanted to build on what he has done, wont be difficult Zero plus anything would be better

          • Rob Porter

            Very funny. Any candidate who wants to build on what Obama has done is to avoided like the plague. With half of South Carolina’s voters black, suddenly Hillary Clinton was, in the most phony manner, heavy into extolling Obama’s non-existent virtues. She will say pretty much anything to win votes. Just another liberal of low moral character.

          • ZaMan

            Man, who knew having a negro as President would turn people into racist, bigoted, black-hating factless turds? Oh wait, I did. and I was right. Hatred of Obama comes from racism and bigotry. No doubt about that. it’s none of your Business why he is not going. No matter what the President does the
            Republicans would critize him. The Republican politicians have turned into a bunch of hateful,
            disrespectful bunch,just look at who is ahead in the Republican polls, he has really brought politics into the gutter.

            The amusement derived from reading the ranting of uneducated poor white trash gets boresome after a while, besides, it’s feeding time, and you should start lining up at FOX, you don’t want to miss your daily ration.

            Well, I’m offended that you keep repeating that
            misleading
            half-truth about Democrats and the KKK. As you have been told many
            times here, all those racist Southern Democrats left the Democratic Party when
            the party embraced civil rights reform in the early 1960s. Here’s what
            only one of hundreds of studies have found:
            Martin said the KKK was created by the Democratic Party. He acknowledged he was wrong!
            Historians
            say the KKK consisted of a group of Southern whites after the Civil War
            who were Democrats. But there’s no evidence the KKK was created by
            their political party.
            It should also be noted that the anti-black Democratic Party of the 1860s and 1870s bears no similarity to the party of today.

            if anyone is to blame it would be your people on the racist right that set civil rights back 70 years. Whats disgusting is in the comments black people are considered spooks and apes. The way that this black man encourages racism is disgraceful. So it’s Obama’s fault that white racists fear and hate him? No wonder this Country is in such a mess with the intelligence of these comments below. Where were you when “W” murdered all those people in 9/11? Your racists attitudes do more to promote racism than anything else. I am sure you were all “W’ supporters and that just shows how ignorant you really are. Worst President this country ever had. Without a doubt.

            If Obama were really a Muslim he wouldn’t be president. There’s too many braindead cowards in America.

            Obama is doing what is right for the people of the USA by not attending a bigots funeral. Justice Scalia held back the Supreme Court. We need people who will follow the Constitution who can use their brilliant minds to help bring the people together, not separate them. The idea the President is doing any different is brought by bigots.

            And when Obama did not choose to go to a greed, wicked conservative funeral, you get upset? whats good for the goose is equally good for the gander. Yet he is generous enough to pay his last respect on a Friday.

            In spite of the criticism, people close to the Scalia family said Obama was making the right choice. “I wouldn’t have expected President Obama to attend the funeral Mass, and I see no reason to fault him for not attending,” said Ed Whelan, a former Scalia clerk who now heads the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “The ceremony at the Supreme Court seems the most apt opportunity for the president to pay his respects, but he obviously might have severe competing demands on his time.”

            http://www.politico.com/story/2016/02/obama-no-scalia-funeral-219384

            Even the Scalia family does not agree with you racist bigoted turds!
            LOL

            Why is Barack Obama an evil man? He’s not.
            Is Barack Obama destroying America? No, he is not.
            Is Barack Obama a Muslim? No, he isn’t. you’ll still be in the nut house and Obama will still be a Christian and yes he does know exactly what he’s doing, that’s why someone you support is a Jack wad and he’s the president, even of the illiterate and the stupid such as yourself.
            Why does Barack Obama hate America? He doesn’t.
            Is Barack Obama an Traitor? No, he’s not.
            Is Barack Obama a Communist? No, he’s not.
            Can Barack Obama be impeached for the damages he has done? Go ahead and try. You’ll fail.
            Is Barack Obama a disgrace to America? No, he isn’t.
            Barack Obama is not a gay homosexual. Your brain-dead proves that you’re just a racist that hates having a negro as President. That’s all this is

            Obama saw fit to have himself and his wife and the VP all attend the funeral for a black that was murdered.He didn’t seem to care about all the security that was used then.I guess it was just a show of what color you really care about and for you having the title of POTUS you sure do know how to UNUNITE the races you claim to represent. Carry on Mr President and i sure hope this country has woke up to all your race baitng games. As for Zaman STFU and get back to your moms basement.

            You, Za Man of little wisdom and brains, resorts to the pathetic accusation of ‘racism’ when others express disgust for such a vile man of low moral character as this half-baked, pathological liar president. And as to the “whining” accusation, more drivel from a mental retard whose incessant fall back is “whining”.

            This pretty much sums up your level of intellect and judgment: “…a KKK RACIST white trash UNJustice Scalia”. Justice Scalia was a wise and decent man, totally unlike President Obama.

            Your comments and slanderous accusations here are without question the most stupid I have seen for a long time, but just about the level I’ve come to expect from low-charactered black racist Obama supporters. You haven’t a clue about the meaning of values, integrity and character, which is why you in a pathetic manner slander anyone who doesn’t – for good reason – like or support this dirtbag president. In fact you reminded me of Morgan Freeman saying on tv that whites who don’t support Obama don not “because of racism”. Have you any idea in your foggy little brain how racist and undemocratic was that statement and those of your own? Try getting an education, it might help. After that go in search of a moral compass, it might give you values that help you poor judgement.

          • You took the words right out of my mouth.
            Everything Obama says and does is controlled by his muslem masters. Obama is without a doubt a traitor to the USA.
            The 2016 election is coming up soon. Hopefully the AMERICANS get it right this time..
            We can only hope.

          • Rob Porter

            If American hadn’t let their values go to hell this would be no contest, but the reality is that if their values hadn’t gone to hell a trash man life Obama would never have become president. So now we can only hope that sanity is recovered.

          • Bobby Marcum

            I think your comments assume a premise (that people other than you, and who disagree) are threatening, and you fling a desperate hand to clutch at some ready made rhetoric, having no original material. Since the premise is true, that we are a threat to you, I agree with you in some ways. But your accusations have no resonance because they are not just false, they are not in the context of the discussion at all. And just a thought, the only concrete accusation you make (for calling someone a racist or bigot only means that you do not like that person now) about attacking his family. If his wife has done something bad, she should expect to be attacked, as she has no problem inflicting herself upon the public. They have authority over their children, but mentioning a child is not an attack on it. Finally, what exactly do you mean by “you people”?

          Your lack of intelligence and humane behavior is showing here. Respect is being shown here for an honored Supreme Court Justice. You are a non-entity and are making a fool of yourself. If you have any self-respect or respect for others, you will leave quietly.

    Everyone has a conscience. Maybe going to Scalia’s funeral is just too much for Obama.

    • imakymama

      My thoughts, exactly. Attend the funeral of one you — and/or your cohorts — ordered to be murdered?

    • hardhats

      Obama has no conscious. He’s shown that hundreds of times. Hope I can attend his funeral one day.

      • Pray Hard

        Nor a conscience.

    • Pray Hard

      Sociopaths don’t have a conscience. Psychopaths don’t have a conscience. Muslims don’t have a conscience.

        Oh wait, he was “crying” over the gun violence victims. Doesn’t that count?

  • chris wolf

    All I hear the sharia compliant media saying is obama is making plans to “pay his respects” to Scalia — by going to The Supreme Court!
    That’s just typical of a muslim pig, though, isn’t it?
    He’s more than happy to preside over the corpse and lay claim to the spoils.
    obama — the muslim pig.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    Obama doesn’t respect the office of a Supreme Court Justice – why should others respect Obama?

  • drummie

    Obama holds anyone that is not of the same ideology as he in the lowest form of contempt. The man has no character, no honor and no leadership abilities. He is a rude crude embarrassment to the United States. I n the end, most will regret him ever being elected because of the damage he has done to this country and the world.

    • WhatWouldYodaDo

      His claim to fame will be that he’s the 10 Trillion Dollar Man that crippled a once great nation in a sea of debt and handed Iran nuclear weapons.

      • BonniePrinceCharlie

        And he demonstrated his commitment to America by leading from his behind. He said so himself.

    • hardhats

      Obama’s holding true to himself. Total hypocritical, classless asshole. Longest year of our country’s existence still remains with this prick. Enjoy your day on the links, scumbag.

    • zipper

      Guess again. Even today, with all the evidence we’ve seen, his supporters STILL think he’s the greatest man to ever sit in the WH. Just incredible!
      Like they say: “You can’t fix stupid.”

    Who wants this ahole at their funeral laughing like a hyena, flashing those stupid teeth and gums all over the place and taking selfies with whatever brainless groupie is available? This is not even including Mooch showing up with her full scary uglyface because she didn’t want to go.

    • Fred

      You know he would try to make it all about HIM.

      • DVult

        I wish it was all about him.

  • TotallyDomestic

    BO is not worthy to lick the dirt off of Scalia’s shoes.
    He would desecrate the church anyway just with his evil presence.

  • Robert Bayer

    Having the murderer of the deceased at the funeral instead of behind bars would have been awkward for everyone.
    Scalia’s murder is a sign of far worse in the works being planned by the abhorrent and evil Barrack Obama and his goons.

  • Richard

    One more example of how Obama has treated being the president of the United States of America like an entry level job. What a no-class POS.

  • chris wolf

    obama will appear at a Christian or Jewish gathering only when he will be invited to invoke a curse, as in with “inter-faith services” (LOL!) or at the Arlington National Cemetery.
    But he won’t go to a Catholic funeral service, where he would not have a chance to desecrate it.
    As for the Supreme Court, he will naturally appear, covered with blood, in a muslim ritual of supremacy and death that he can count on Americans as seeing as respect and that muslims around the world will see that he has conquered us for mahomet.

    • hardhats

      The asshole will stand up in a Muslim funeral and praise the most beautiful religion. He is such a piece of crap. No respect at all to you, Obama, you filthy bastard.

      • JGray1

        he has never worked his way up to filthy bastard. he’s such an embarrassment it’s painful.

  • Marc Harris

    I’m surprised he isn’t taking advantage of this opportunity to thumb his nose at God and offend Catholics everywhere. Perhaps the use of Latin really does cause demons pain (EF Requiem Mass)!

    • hardhats

      Give him time. He probably has that planned for the wake.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      If there are pictures in the church, the imam of evil will not attend. “Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saying, “Every painter will go to Hell, and for every portrait he has made, there will be appointed one who will chastise him in the Hell.” Ibn `Abbas said: If you have to do it, draw pictures of trees and other inanimate things.

    It is definitely a snub by Obama. He will use Joe the Joke’s attendance to offset any criticism by saying “my administration” recognized Judge Scalia’s passing by attending his funeral. (Yeah, but You are the President and should attend!)

  • Benton Marder

    The funeral is on Saturday. Which golf course will be graced by the presence of our very own Ozymandias, Ubu Roi?

  • Cappy1437

    Unbelievable. Shows how both the Obama’s have no moral sense. You would think at least one of them would have the common sense and decency and say to the other, “We need to attend the funeral and show our respect. Supreme Court Justice Scalia deserves that, his family deserves that, and so do the American people.” But obviously and unfortunately, both are showing they lack the dignity and honor that a President and First Lady should have. Many of us have been aware that for the last eight years we have had these two people in the White House who haven’t shown honor and respect for what is important to the United States. They have taken from the American people continually yet they show no appreciation to the American people. We have had a President who has continually lied to the American people and we have had a First Lady who has whined and complained that she has been discriminated against. They have shown that they didn’t understand the honor and trust they were given or if they did, they didn’t care. What a shame. Both will go down in history as being failures.

  • Eliza Collins: Scalia’s death ripped open a political seam when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell…

    Which is it? Was it Scalia’s death or McConnell’s statement? This person is so hysterical–part ecstasy over Scalia’s death, part terror at not getting the chance to seat a Left-wing hack to effectuate the nullification of the second amendment (and first amendment)–that she can’t decide which is doing the ripping of the seam!?

    I want to see this broad’s face!

    Eliza Collins: The White House has promised to nominate someone before the election.

    The Current Executive and Putter in Chief can nominate one person every day from now until January, whatever, and the Senate should do nothing, nada zero.

    • jan66lou

      It was in very poor taste and very disrespectful to even bring up a nomination before the man was even buried. Both McConnell and Obie should have known better! Neither should be in office!

      • Let’s not forget which Republican candidate in the Saturday debate in South Carolina mentioned–while Scalia’s body was still warm–two replacements for Scalia by name, which is beyond poor taste! I sure do hope it was not “New York values” that made Trump do that. I think he is in competition with the detestable Current Executive on offensive behavior, but I’m wholly biased in the matter…

  • Drew the Infidel

    After the manner in which Obhammud used the SOTU address to rake the SC justices over the coals for decisions with which he disagreed, what could you expect? He can nominate all the potential replacements he wants but unless the Senate acts it is meaningless.

  • BrunoPBuhr

    I was hoping that he was disinvited from the funeral and expand that to the White House…do we really want him representing us anywhere?

  • Uselesscrap

    Perhaps Mrs Scalia asked him not to come.

    He is that on-the-down-low Liar-In-Chief. A kind of bathhouse punk Sherman Jefferson writ large in the ultimate act of ‘Gettin’ Ovuh!’, a vile creature despicable beyond words, and irrefutable evidence of the Living God’s judgment uponour wicked nation. His presence at Mr. Justice Scalia’s funeral would be morally offensive, and bring with it a figurative odor of excrement.

  • Ektor

    Obama is a liberal scumbag beyond doubt. He is already working hard to replace Justice Scalia with one of his handpicked Nazi monsters before he is even buried. He will likely use an executive order of some kind and the RINOS in Congress won’t even make a peep against him.

  • Rob Porter

    Oh Pamela, so well said. You’re a gem: “That someone of such low character, limited experience and hatred for America could be elected President of these United States is a testament to the power the left wields in the media, culture, and academia.

    I will skip the funeral, but please confirm my next libtard pick!! What a low life clown!! Go to cuba and stay there!!

  • krinks

    The Republicans should remember this when it comes to replacing him and not let him do it.

  • 7littleangels

    He would totally distract from the solemnity of the occasion. Obama is a very small individual when placed beside Justice Scalia. I am glad he is not going. It only proves how petty, petulant, and immature he is and what a joke as the leader of the free world.

  • billwhit

    A decent, wonderful man like Justice Scalia would not want a lowlife, corrupt, Islamic Scumbag Pig like B. Hussein Obama attending his funeral or speaking on his behalf. At least Joe Biden is an American, unlike Queen Hussein, the Kenyan Muslim Homosexual Pervert. I hope Obama pays for his corruption one day soon, and it will be a Holiday Time when Obama’s obituary goes to print, hopefully, soon, very, very, very soon!

  • SK

    Muslims cannot attend the funerals of nonmuzzrats. It’s that simple. That’s why Obama never has attended any funerals. Not for our generals or any other heads of state.

  • NoHippieBoomer

    Ozero doesn’t like to attend events where he’s not the center of attention. Besides, his presence would make it even clearer to everyone there that the wrong person is in the casket.

  • chris wolf

    We’ve seen the absence of sincerity, honesty and integrity with which obama introduced himself and pledged his intentions to the American people in his presidential campaigns, so it’s chilling and grotesque to think of him shuffling past the casket of our stalwart American Justice, whose funeral he will be skipping.
    Do not pledge, “in due time,” obama.
    In due time for you.

  • Terry101

    Obama is truly classless in that he has no class.

  • Christina Nguyen

    RIP Justice Scalia, you are in a better place now. Please do look down and protect us, we need a good president to solve all the problems we are having now. You will be missed.

  • Let the Jury decide

    Catholic Mass. He can’t go.

  • chris wolf

    The obama crony owner of the Scalia death ranch, one Poindexter, says he first contacted the Presidio County Sheriff at approximately NOON — and that he would not tell the sheriff the name of the deceased!
    Poindexter had previously stated that he checked on Scalia at just after 8 a.m. and did not get a response.
    Unbelievable.
    The FBI — the obama Justice Department — declined to get involved.
    Everyone needs to understand how much obama relished the thought of murdering Scalia, for the inestimable political benefits to his ongoing takedown of America in addition to his satiating his vampiric blood lust.
    Satan afoot.

  • Claudia Mattheiss

    Number one it is not even close to the first time that a sitting President does not attend a Supreme Court justices funeral. Secondly a Catholic funeral is not an appropriate setting and even the family agreed on that. The only reason why Biden is going is because they were personal friends. The repose is the appropriate place. A Catholic Mass is for family and friends. You will have to go after a while bunch of Presidents calling them low life’s for not attending supreme Court justices funerals. Before you even start on Nancy Reagans. It is protocol for the sitting first lady to attend a for er first lady’s funeral. Now get a grip woman!
