A Presidency Without… Guts
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/27/2013 5:32:10 AM

So the secondhand tale of House Speaker John Boehner’s assessment that President Obama “can’t make a decision. He’s got balls made out of marshmallows” … has a certain precedent, as Exurban Jon reminds me: “If Hillary gave him [Obama] one of her balls, they’d both have two,” Democratic strategist James Carville told the Christian Science Monitor at a breakfast on Thursday morning. The editorial board of the Washington Post uses nicer language, but reaches the same conclusion: … why is Mr. Obama not leading the way to a solution? From the start, and increasingly in his second term,

Normally, I dislike the stale references to male genitalia we seem to hear and read so often, but Geraghty is forgiven because I like him.

You spend 4 years making the problem worse, purposefully and unwaveringly making the problem worse - and yet, there still are so very many Republicans who believe you just lack "guts" or competence or whatever to find a solution....?!Obama must be laughing himself silly that so many supposedly smart people refuse to understand - in the face of 4 years of irrefutable evidence - that his intentions for the nation are, indeed, bad.

For those of you who grew up in the ´50´s, you know that the best term to describe Obama is "punk."
He is just a punk.
And if he and I were in the schoolyard then or now, I´d wipe that arrogant punk smirk off his face.

I believe Obama has the guts to do what is necessary to bring this country to its knees. Men of his mindset always do and history always asks, why didn´t the people stop him. I pray to God that question will not be asked of us.

Obama is not qualified to be POTUS and never was. He got elected because he is black. That´s it. He brought no experience to the job and his ideology is very liberal and very anti-American. He doesn´t negotiate with Congress because he doesn´t know how. He thinks he is entitled to the perks of the job but has never taken the responsibility so he campaigns and gives speeches. It really isn´t that complicated.

Republican have been deferential to Obama since Day 1. They are afraid of media backlash. They need to heap scorn, ridicule and cutting remarks a la British Parliment on his agendas and his unwillingness to govern. For example, the marshmallow comment needed to be public.

The pipsqueak is devoid of leadership experience. Presidents normally have done something in life other than just talk. He presumably is lost emotionally and intellectually when confronted with a situation requiring a decision. So he delegates. Furthermore, all he knows are inane socialist soundbites to help him get through the day. Consequently he rarely is in work mode while his handlers run the White House. Clinton was pretty useless too, but he put on a better show of hiding his incompetence to a gullible public.

Can you imagine the situation where a company put a neophyte in charge of the business? It makes one laugh. Well, start laughing at the White House calamity. After that you can cry.

For me it´s not a question of testicular fortitude. It´s a question of meanness of spirit. Fauxbama seems to want to win, to humiliate, to score brownie points with the loons. He doesn´t seem to want to heal the country. He cares nothing for the unemployed. Instead, he is fixated on class warfare and raising taxes. He is always willing to put the country through trauma, so long as he can blame it on someone else. It´s as if he´s carrying some terrible grudge. Why? Society has given him more than he´s ever earned. Maybe his dependency has embittered him and he wants everyone to share it.

It’s no wonder that when Soros, Ayres and Co. decided to destroy America with their evil magnum opus, Obama, they appealed to the segments of society that produced and fell for the likes of FDR, Kennedy and the Clintons (among many others).

As for wanting to slap that smirk off Obama´s mug (or worse), the line forms to the right.

Obama is doing just as he promised! We elected him twice anyway. We knew what he was. He consorted with unrepentant Domestic Terrorists Ayers and Dorn, America hater Rev. Wright, he was a community organizer (regal rouser) etc.

This was all poo poohed by the MSM, they veiled him from view and invented a different man. Enough of us fell for it to put him where he is today, Occuping the Oval Office!

Why do so many Republican talking heads continue to presume that Obama is lacking in guts when in reality he ran for the Presidency NOT to solve any of our problems but to destroy the very foundation of this country. They keeping giving him a pass.
What don´t they understand about "fundamentally transforming" this country? You´re either a blind, idiotic supporter of Obama or an enemy of the state and the state is Obama.

Aside from the harm he is doing our country, perhaps the most striking thing about Barack Obama is how consistently we underestimate him. I´m old enough to remember when it was the height of liberal wit to dismiss Ronald Reagan as "an amiable dunce." While these so-called smart guys were busy insulting him, President Reagan transformed American politics and changed the world. Reagan didn´t just say and do conservative things. He was conservative things: Small town boy, self-made man, cowboy, courageous, heroic, a Horatio Alger rise to fame and fortune through individual virtue and hard work. Reagan´s life confirmed the conservative vision of an America he loved.

Barack Obama is liberalism´s Ronald Reagan. Obama doesn´t just believe and advance a radical liberal vision of America. He embodies it: Mixed-nationality, international upbringing, single mother, welfare, affirmative action, Ivy League lawyer, social worker. Obama´s whole life confirms the false liberal premise that, with enough government, anything is possible. He is the anti-Reagan building liberalism´s anti-America. Barack Obama is destroying this country and threatening our world.

It is a serious mistake to underestimate him.

Jim DeMint was interviewed about this on Fox News last night. He made an interesting comment about why Obama is doing all this "sky is falling" nonsense over a reduced increase in spending.
He said the 600 billion tax increase voted into law earlier this year will cause much more pain in the economy that this sequester. He wants the GOP blamed when the pain from the tax increases kicks in.

When, if ever, will Democrat Senators take counsel with each other and go to Obama and tell him they will no longer stand behind him because he has gone much too far? When will the Supreme Court rein him in? It must be soon, if ever. These two places are where the responsibility lies and where the power is.

Good #6, 14. More than a few of us would have cornered that smart aleck in a stair well or parking garage by now if we were on capitol hill. I had a Speed(movie)-related dream late one morning, where I was at the wheel and someone forgot to check both directions before crossing. The only disappointment was waking up! drats! ha ha.

Affirmative action is not like an endless roll of toilet paper but Obama thinks it is. At some point in time the rubber is going to meet the road. Name one debacle under Obama´s watch he has taken responsibility for: Fast and Furious? No; Benghazi? No way; The downgrade in US credit rating, first ever under a sitting president? Huh-uh; The huge US debt 6 trillion increase on his watch? Ain´t happenin´; 2013 Federal income tax increases?; Not no way not no how; Inflation from him printing money at will? nyet; Middle East, broken, in flames? anh anh; etc etc.

I agree with #22. There is a lot more going on here, too much to be driven by stupidity. There is a plan, I havn´e got it figured yet but I think a lot of people in this government hope to get enough chaos and disinfromnation going from both sides that people begin to take things into their own hands and justify even bigger government control. I´m not sure yet but I smell something that isn´t real obvious yet. Now with the Senate Republicans thinking about giving Obama the choices, they think that this might work especially with someone who doesn´t play by the rules? Something stinks.

Obama´s the puppet master. He´s an idea man and doesn´t actually get his hands dirty. Voting Present should have told us his style. Nothing sticks to the Teflon Man.

Bravo, #39!
This is what I am saying for at least 5 years.
Leftist radicals (call them fascists or commies, doesn´t matter!) seized control of the media and banks (by the way, hitler and stalin did exactly that, chavez as well) and are transforming America while rush, hannity and coulter blabber pseudo-conservative jibberish.
We still have conservatives with money in this country (or we don´t?), let´s ask them for help in acquiring the main stream media.
America needs the local newspapers and TV stations that have in headlines truth about what obozo and the rest of the team are doing to this great country.

The solutions to America´s Obama/Soros/Jarrett/Dem/Liberal/heathin-inflicted problems begin by permanently dispensing with PC and shouting the truth so loudly and bravely that We the People will hear it and act on it.

Who owns the leftist heathen media? Who controls Hollywood and the filth that is spewed there? Demonize them, for that is what they are.

Who is BHO/BS? Shout the truth in the halls of Congress and in our churches.

Christians are all that stand between America and her demise.

I divorced a malignant narcissist. I know exactly what Obama is capable of having lived with one for so long.
They will never, ever, ever, ever give up their need to control you. By whatever means necessary, they will continue to manipulate and control. They get a rush of pleasure when you are afraid. They feel like gods when you are helpless. And if you stand up to them, they will punish you.

They have no statute of limitations on their vindictiveness. If once you criticize them for anything, they will never let you forget. They will blame you for everything that ever goes wrong and will take their revenge in all sorts of creative ways on any perceived slight. The highlight of their life is to think up ways to hurt and humiliate you. Your humiliation is what they live and breathe for.
(That´s what the billion-dollar India trip and TSA was for after the 2010 elections...revenge. And that goes for this prisoner release now: punishment for the gop holding him accountable for the sequestration)

#22 said it best. Do no underestimate what a pathological narcissist will do. This isn´t even about ideology...narcissists only ideology is themselves.

This is about power in its purist form. This isn´t about guts at all. It isn´t about balls or spine or strength...it comes from a twisted soul.

What can be done? Nothing. Live your lives with faith in God and get on doing what you believe is right. One day he´ll be alone and without power. Then...God help him.

America is now in an abusive (unwilling) relationship. It´s just not healthy to live like this. The wisdom is knowing how to get out of it.

#6, punk is a very apt name for the Marxist.

#20, exactly right--he seeks to "fundamentally transform"--that is, to destroy what is the USA and put something else in its place. So far, he´s succeeded quite well.

He is not a typical politician, like LBJ or FDR (though they did some awful things that we still must live with), he is something far worse. Everything about this man screams dictator.

I concur with those thinking along the likes of #s 14, 22, & 36. My only quibble with 22´s closing statement - It is a serious mistake to underestimate him. - is that it is a serious mistake to underestimate his handlers. Barry the Fraud is just the frontman, a shiny hood ornament for a group of domestic communists funded from all over. Can´t put Barry and decision nor accomplishment in the same sentence. There is no evidence of either.

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

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.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through
