TBOTFG (The Balls On This Fucking Guy)

"TBOTFG” ("The Balls On That/This Fucking Guy") was used by the conservative blog Ace of Spades HQ on May 3, 2013, in the blog post “TBOTFG: Obama Blames Mexican Gun Murders on Smuggled US Guns.” The blog thought it ballsy for U.S. President Barack Obama to blame his own country for smuggling guns into Mexico, especially since “Operation Fast and Furious” (the ATF gunwalking scandal) that sold guns to Mexico occurred under the Obama adinistration’s direction. Ace of Spades HQ also used “TBPTFG” on May 24, 2013.

“TBOTFG”—political commentators had previously used “chutzpah”—has had some use on other blogs.

Re: obama in town today in an effort
This is part of the Democratic effort to turn Texas purple. 
The GOP will laugh it off until it happens. 
Still… this is the definition of chuztpah.  As ACE says… “TBOTFG”
