All The Best


I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Obama’s butt boy, Chris Mathews


  1. It would be worth facing the assault charges.

  2. Make sure your lawyer gets me on your jury.

    The jury would 'nullify' the charges, by just one vote, if necessary.

    That's called 'jury nullification'.

  3. Looks like another Chrissy-fit from Matthews, desperate to defend the boss he takes money from in exchange for favorable coverage. 'It's my job to make Obama look good', he infamously declared.

    But if Chris 'Thrills in my Pants' Matthews thinks that this kind of obnoxious haranguing of Romney supporters will win over those precious independents, he's sorely mistaken. People didn't see a smart, intelligent journalist, making a reasoned and logical defense of the Obama administration.

    What they saw was an angry, partisan jerkface insulting a guest and making fun of over half the country.

  4. Of course, there aren't any "Romney Buttboys" working at Fox.

    1. No one at fox has jizzum running down their leg over Romney

    2. :) I'll let you be the one to check.

    3. That's comical, to see the GOP all quacking "presidential" in unison. Romney had zero command of the facts (Syria is Iran's route to the sea?) and aside from the stuttering he almost sweated his orange spray tan off during the debate. He lost soundly. Horses and bayonets. Foreign policy from the '80s, social policy from the '50s, and energy policy from the '20s. Romney had his rear handed to him. That makes the debate score Romney/Ryan 1, Obama/Biden 3.

  5. Bush warned'em;

    There are over 8 Million more Hispanics registered this year than in 2008.

    And, they're voting for Obama at about a 70% rate.

  6. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  7. Hey Everyone; good news everything over at BarackObama.com is 30% off right now.

    I guess it's a going out of business sale.

    Unfortunately despite out-raising Romney and being the first Billion Dollar Campaign ever, Obama is broke. He had to borrow 15 million from Bank Of America and is running a huge debt in the campaign (this doesn't even count the cities he stiffed for security costs) and the fact that the majority of his campaign travel costs including flying to 2 or more fundraisers a day were picked up by the taxpayer.

    Romney is doing OK he still has 89Million and leads in the race.

    See what happens when an adult is running things?

    Anyway, head over to BarackObama.com at your leisure. I expect there will be plenty to go around as not many want any of this stuff anymore. They did Add Obama Big Birds and Binders though for the last Obama Presidential moment and you can even get a Sandra Fluke birth control candy pill with obama logo. By the way Sandra had a rally yesterday and 12 people showed up.

    P.S you will be happy to know Obama isn't planning any huge event in Grant Park like in 2008. Nope his concession speech will be held in McCormick Place/Convention center in Chicago - No bus or train service to McCormick place so he isn't expecting throngs of supporters. McCormick place is in between two highways so Obama will have easy access to his Obama/Rezko mansion after conceding.

    1. Get this straight, wouldn't we all be better off to wait until after the election? I'm not much on stock markets or bonds, but I know yard sales. That is what O is looking at after the election. Expect the price to drop another 60%, and then haggle.

    An amazing thing happened in the course of three presidential debates.

    The president became the challenger and the challenger became the Commander-in Chief.

    If you turn down the sound and just watch the body language in the third debate, it is clear Romney has become the calm, authoritative leader and Obama has become the aggressive, intense challenger.

    This is a remarkable turn of events.

    People who score these events as debates miss the far larger drama which surrounds them.

    Mike Deaver, President Ronald Reagan’s communications adviser, used to watch events with the sound off. Television, he asserted, was 85 percent visual, 10 percent tone of voice, and only 5 percent what you actually say.

    Reagan and Romney had a similar challenge in taking on an incumbent president with a weak record. Many people wanted a change but they felt a president is so central to our national survival that they needed reassurance that the challenger would be calm and stable.

    Both Reagan and Romney had reassurance, a focus on peace not war, and a tone of stable competence as a major goal in their debates.

    David Gergen captured Romney’s achievement in the third debate when he said Romney had passed the Commander-in-Chief test. People left the debate feeling Romney was capable of dealing with global realities and with regional complexities.

    Some partisans wanted Romney to be more aggressive, but that would have violated his strategic goal.

    It is very important in settings like a presidential debate to remember why you are there and what you are trying to accomplish.

    These are not college debate sessions with points scored by debate judges based on debate criterion.

    These are political events designed to gain votes.

    Romney had done so well in the first two debates that he entered the third debate with a very specific goal.

    Romney had already built a huge lead among men — the elite media seldom note Obama’s huge gender gap among men but it is enormous. Romney has also rallied conservatives and Republican partisans.

    These are the groups that like arguments and he already had their support.

    The Romney challenge in the third debate was to appeal to women and to moderate independents. Both dislike confrontation. Both dislike negativity and hostility.

    It is clear Obama’s polling showed him losing ground going into the third debate. As a result, he went into the foreign policy debate overly aggressive and overly hostile.

    Obama’s sarcasm about the size of the military was exactly the wrong style for women and independent moderates. His contempt for Romney came through in that answer and contempt is alienating and irritating to women and independent moderates.

    It was this difference between debating points and political points that has undercut Obama in both the second and third debates.

    After a disastrous performance in the first debate — the worst by an incumbent president in the 62 year history of presidential debates — Obama shifted to a much more aggressive and energetic style for the second and third debates.

    Americans have been trained by American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and other TV shows to judge performances. They have also learned to distinguish important nuances.

    In both the second and third debate Americans said Obama was a better performer. Yet in both debates people said they were more likely to vote for Romney as a result of the debate.

    It is this difference between style and substance, between performance and politics that has kept Obama off balance and allowed Romney to build momentum.

    1. In both the second and third debate Americans said Obama was a better performer. Yet in both debates people said they were more likely to vote for Romney as a result of the debate.

      They got it figured. Decent salesman, lousy product.

  9. That's comical, to see the GOP all quacking "presidential" in unison. Romney had zero command of the facts (Syria is Iran's route to the sea?) and aside from the stuttering he almost sweated his orange spray tan off during the debate. He lost soundly. Horses and bayonets. Foreign policy from the '80s, social policy from the '50s, and energy policy from the '20s. Romney had his rear handed to him. That makes the debate score Romney/Ryan 1, Obama/Biden 3.
    (sorry about the double post)

    1. There is a delete button. Why not use it twice?

  10. He put up another comment, but I blew it out as it was a personal attack and anyone who chooses to make a personal attack and uses anon gets deleted.

  11. Romney up to 46% on Intrade, Obama tanking.

  12. Maybe Trump is going to announce he's found that Trayvon really is Obama's son?

  13. TheInverseAgonist • 3 hours ago • parent

    His head was more reminiscent of a snapping turtle extending out of his shell.

    Best comment I've read yet about the Obama Death Stare, as someone called it, in the debate.

    I sure wouldn't invite that man to dinner.

  14. Reuters: White House, State Dep’t received e-mails within two hours of Benghazi attack about jihadi group taking credit


    While some information identifying recipients of this message was redacted from copies of the messages obtained by Reuters, a government source said that one of the addresses to which the message was sent was the White House Situation Room, the president’s secure command post.

    So, the C in C heads out to Vegas, and The View.

  15. Richard Danzig, former Secretary of the Navy:

    "The basic point that didn't get mentioned, that I would add, is the number of ships actually went down during the years of George W. Bush and have gone up in the Obama years," Danzig said. "So the notion that Republicans are more effective in building the Navy is not a correct one."

    "The Navy is stronger than it's ever been," he added.

    The independent fact-checking site Politifact has ranked Romney's claim that the Navy is the smallest it's been since 1917 as a "pants on fire" falsehood.

  16. Good catch, Ruf.

    But I won't let you get away scot free --


    Pants on fire.

  17. WASHINGTON -- Indiana GOP U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock declared Tuesday night he opposes aborting pregnancies conceived in rape because "it is something that God intended to happen."

    1. That statement has the stench of muslim theology all over it, but the idiot doesn't know it.

      'Allah willing'....Everything that happens is......God's will.

    2. We might remind ourselves too that our esteemed President has a very high opinion of islam, the idiot.

      It is hard to find a politician with a brain these days.

      What else can one say?

  18. Three men - a Canadian farmer, Osama bin Laden and an Aussie are all walking
    together one day..
    They come across a lantern and a Genie pops out of it.
    'I will give each of you one wish, which is three wishes in total', Says the
    The Canadian says, 'I am a farmer and my son will also farm. I want the
    land to be forever fertile in Canada '
    POOF! With the blink of the Genie's eye, the land in Canada was forever
    fertile for farming.
    Osama was amazed, so he said, 'I want a wall around Afghanistan , Palestine
    , Iraq and Iran so that no infidels, Americans or Canadians Can come into
    our precious land.'
    POOF! Again, with the blink of the Genie's eye, there was a huge wall
    around those countries.
    The Aussie says, 'I am very curious.
    Please tell me more about this wall.'
    The Genie explains, 'Well, it's about 5,000 feet high, 5oo feet thick and
    completely surrounds the countries. Nothing can get in or out; it's
    virtually impenetrable.'

    The Aussie sits down on his Harley , cracks a beer, lights a cigarette,
    Smiles and says, 'Fill the fucker with water.'

  19. grow up you stupid fuckers.....Chris represents the worst of humanity. At some point we must debate what truly is in the best interest of our country (as well as us individually). Anyone who says he is a journalist but whose only sense of acomplishment is derived by pats on the back by his liberal friends deserves to be regarded as who he is
