Is President Obama lazy?
Washington Times, by Eric Golub

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/7/2013 11:16:12 AM

LOS ANGELES — Conversations must begin honestly. It is perfectly legitimate to analyze leaders with critical lenses. People fight and die for this freedom. Times are serious, and Obama may not be. The question of whether OBama is lazy evokes everything from discomfort to rage. Yet asking and answering questions provokes "national conversations" that President Obama cherishes. Racism exists (thankfully, such views are marginalized) and in the past. Calling blacks "lazy" is one way for racists to spread their message. Denying the connotation denies history. So how can calling Obama lazy not be racist?

Comments:
He´s arrogant, lazy and incompetent. The only thing I would quibble with in the article is that he says 0bama is a "Hawaiian Christian" and not a Kenyan Muslim subversive. There is too much evidence to the contrary.

One has to wonder why the term "lazy" is considered racist.

Is Obama lazy? Well, Duhhhhh! He´s also un-American, has a Communist agenda, doesn´t know much about economics except how to spend us into oblivion, wants to take our guns away, has control over our lives, and the topper is that he is most probably a Muslim.

Is ´Hawaian Christian´ a fancy word for Muslim? Oh, yeah, nothing is right in America anymore.

As the symbolic first black president Obama had to succeed. If he failed or was only mediocre the public might begin to question the media´s decades of promoting the benefits of diversity.

So the media had to pretend Obama was successful even though he wasn´t. They did this by blaming other people or other factors for his lack of accomplishments. Also, he had to be re-elected or it would make America look intolerant. But now that he has been re-elected, and can´t run again, the media might begin to be a little more honest in its Obama coverage.

Lazy in terms of work ethic and intellect? His past performance (or lack thereof) speak louder than words.

He has coasted all of his academic and political career. Period. Most do not challenge his mystique because of his bona fides, his skin color and his charisma.

Sooner or later, his artifice will crumble. It´s fragile enough as it is and it will not be pretty.

Apples and oranges. It isn´t his color that makes him lazy it is his sense of entitlement with the power provided to him. Much of it unchallenged. He uses "executive order" for others to do the job he was elected to do.

Yes, he is lazy. He is also self-aggrandizing and petty. And he hates America and Americans. He doesn´t like black people, white people or any other race of people. He´s a misanthrope. He´s also greedy. And not too bright. He´s conceited and foolish.

Shall I go on? He´s one of the worst human beings ever to hold high office in the history of the world. And, no, I´m not exaggerating.

Hard to distinguish between lazy and stupid.

Like, ask if some guy is strong or weak. What if he can´t manage to pick up a candy wrapper. You *think* he has the strength, but he can´t get it done. So, well, there it is.

We merely human working taxpayers and financially self sufficient know so little about this it (entity ) that a judgement of that sort is not possible.
If it is human then it´s knowledge of it´s glorious superiority leaves it bored with it´s mentors assignment to destroy every last vestage of America, The Constitution and Bill of Rights, The Family, Christanity , Judaism, and Capitalism.
The first debate highlighted this ho humm boredom it often displays. It seems to display to it´s subjects, boredom, contempt, and disdain.

Many people some of us might call lazy are actually quite industrious:

1. The EBT crowd have to apply and go through all the work to get "free" money.

2. Criminals have to go to a lot of work and take risks to gain access to other people´s stuff.

3. Vote cheaters have to go to various polling places - usually all on one day.

4. zero had to run all over the country speechifying and lying like a rug to maintain his 1 billion $ a year little personal kingdom including the multi-million dollar vacations.

Oh the humanity!!!

I don´t know if he is lazy about things like doing housework, picking up after himself, etc. But indications are Obama is intellectually lazy, which I think is quite common among super-brains as well as dullards. Leftism is intellectually lazy. Leftists never challenge their own assumptions. Leftists rely on cliches, stereotypes and caricatures. The footage of Obama as a law instructor at the blackboard is shockingly sophomoric. His laziness means he hasn´t learned anything, he´s carrying on with the same old Community Rabble Rouser shtick.

Pretty successful for a lazy guy. Lazy is the opposition who can´t pin the tail on this donkey. He does everything but drive the truck across the border with the guns in it and his ´enemies´ can´t put him anywhere near it. In fact they can´t hold anyone responsible for a direct order from DC to AZ to sell deadly weapons to obvious drug cartel criminals. How does a ´lazy´ man pull that off? Scooter Libby went to jail over NOTHING and these guys explain on camera how they are not going to enforce voter intimidation laws because you are white and they are black. Yet nothing happens. Lazy? No.

If you´re a puppet -- a useful idiot tool -- for a Prgressice organization bent on bringing down America´s economy, being lazy is a must.

BJ Clinton had too much get up & go to be used like this poser. And he was far more intelligent. These handlers do all the dirty work for him, while he plays golf or swims in the Hawaiian surf.

Yes, he is lazy. It´s a job requirement for this group. Soros probably hand-picked him for that alone.

"Mainstream critics do not see Obama as evil, but then being evil would require effort."

that is a knock out funny line.

Was it Doug Brinkley or Michael Beschloss (both of whom should know better) that said that Obama has the highest IQ of any president in history. How on earth would he know that and on what is it based? I am not saying Obama is dumb but I haven´t ever heard him say anything I regarded as particularly intelligent. Does anyone seriously believed Obama has a higher IQ than say, Thomas Jefferson?

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth. As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
