Obama Cuss Jar Contest - CLOSED

The jar is full, so time for another contest!

There are many reasons for our colorful language.  Maybe another assault on private property, religious freedom, or the private-sector economy.  Maybe a dead ambassador, or a bow and apology to a thug dictator. Maybe the coming fiscal cliff.

During the Bush years the liberals would bleat, "If you're not mad, you're not paying attention."  As you can see by the photo below, we're paying attention.  And so are our Comrades who wear this hat!
