Obama’s Fault
New York Times, by Bill Keller

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/4/2013 8:20:51 AM

Our feckless leaders may be incapable of passing a budget, but, boy, can they pass the buck. The White House spent last week in full campaign hysteria, blitzing online followers with the message that heartless Republicans are prepared to transform America into “Les Misérables” in order to protect “millionaires and billionaires, oil companies, vacation homes, and private jet owners.” Republicans retort that the budget-cutting Doomsday device called sequester was actually invented by the White House. In fact, the conceptual paternity of sequester was bipartisan. Both sides agreed that Congress should set in

Comments:
Keller takes his usual jabs at the Republicans, but I find it surprising he really bashes 0bama also. I´m always skeptical of articles like this because I wonder what the ulterior motive is, even though it´s a departure from their usual adoration of 0bama.

So Keller got out of the wrong side of the bed. A stopped clock is right twice a day.

The Air Force planes used for personal trips by Obama, the Mooch, Panetta, Holder, Pelosi, Mueller and our other budget conscious leaders are not to be included in the slur, "private jets". Nor are the "vacation homes" owned by wealthy Obama supporters like Tiger Woods and the Aspen couple where the Mooch stayed in February. And surely, Hollywood celebrities and billionaires such as Warren Buffet are not to be viewed as being part of the heartless "millionaires and billionaires" constantly vilified by Obama.

No, the class, race and gender bile that spews from Obama and his worshippers are meant only for the Anne and Mitt Romneys of America. The Romneys and their kind are the reason Obama is having to fight so hard for us. For it is Romney and the thousands like him who have replaced Bush at the epicenter of the forces opposing Obama. Obama must prevail, and the ill-gotten success of these people must be reduced if not eliminated. Viva, Obama!

As soon as I realized this merely another "everybody´s guilty" cop-out I stopped reading. Keller simply cannot bring himself to say "The Republian are right...sequester WAS Obama´s idea."

Just a minor point, but - the democrats went after rich people in 1990, or thereabouts, and President George H.W. Bush agreed to a ´luxury tax on some items, including yachts.
What was the impact of that? It nearly killed the yacht building businesses in the U.S., causing alot of highly skilled workers to be laid off. (Economists call that an ´externality´ - an unanticpated result caused by a particular action.)
The symbolic gestures coming from this White House are absurd. Same with the democrats in the legislature.

The media is just as arrogant as the bamster...

They really think WE care what they think....

WE the people know exactly what´s going on. Our prez in a lying sack of ----.

After watching President Romney and First Lady Ann on the Fox channel -- my heart crys for what might have been -- if the poll/watchers hadn´t played with the numbers. I will never admit that the demorats took this election fairly. What a couple and what great kids and grandkids....

America´s loss......

Despite the headline, there´s the usual invective against ´Republican zealots´ and their ´blackmail.´

But who is openly committing blackmail with threats regarding illegal alien inmate release and Fisher Price cuts (my term for anyone with a Fisher Price figure such as teachers, firemen, policemen and EMTs)?

Keller´s indictment is a mile wide and an inch deep. If he were truly curious about the spending/deficit/debt problem, he would be examining how we took on trillion dollar deficits in the midst of a financial emergency and subsequently adopted them as a routine fiscal policy. The democrats have never had to argue for trillion dollar deficits as part of an annual budget process...they sure didn´t let the banking crisis go to waste! But the emergency has passed and the federal budget needs to reflect that. This is why Reid will not follow the law and pass a budget. His intransigence is why we all wind up at sequester.

FTA: But if you care about the long-term health of the country, the president has more to answer for than just inventing a particular type of fiscal time bomb. The large mess we are in is in no small part the result of missed opportunities and political miscalculation at 1600 Pennsylvania.

Thanks to this article I just learned about the Noam Scheiber book. I love the title which I think we need to use for Zippy and Dems. “The Escape Artists". The second part of that title is "How Obama’s Team Fumbled the Recovery”. I do wish people in the media and elsewhere would stop talking about the "recovery". There hasn´t been a "recovery".

After 9/11/2001, when things looked so bad for the economy, the stock market, and just life in general, Bush and his team worked hard and we did, through his leadership, have a recovery. Barry,OTOH, has sent us into a near depression.

Agreed LZK. We needed a man with Romney´s skills at this particular time in our history. I also ache at what could have been.

On the brighter side, Mitt is also aching to be in the problem solving mix. I´d not be surprised to see Mitt as Budget Director in the next White House, where he could give a strong (and vocal) assist to Rubio, Paul, Cruz or whomever is saddled with the problem in ´16. Mitt wouldn´t be given a chance in ´16, but those Romney´s are a youthful bunch, so he could be a factor again in 10 years.

What #8 said. The comments to the Keller article demonstrate all too vividly that the only thing the modern Democrat cares about is blaming the Republicans. If taxes are too high, it´s that the Republicans are protecting The Rich (tm) at the expense of The Poor. If spending is too high, well, spending is never too high, so move on, people. If Ambassador Stevens is murdered by terrorists, it´s the fault of a Republican video, or that the Republicans cut funds for Embassy security. If it´s too hot, it´s the Republicans´ fault for causing global warming. If it´s too cold, it´s the Republicans´ fault for causing global climate change. I could go on and on, and why not? They do...

Let´s ask them to make a vow of poverty. Let´s see them live like the plebians they and all marxists claim to love. They need to be called out on their hypocrisy, every day, all day.

As others say here, Keller is Keller is a Dem/Leftie.

He and his ilk are not rethinking their political ideology. Therein is the crux of the problem.

Thanks for the heads up #8. The comments are revealing. Think ahead til January 2014 and those Dems are going to be paying premiums for Obama Care. First you will find readers suggesting that you can sign up only when you get sick. Then you are going to see people talking about notices that the subsidies count as taxable income. By election time there will a LOT of moaning going on the Democrat camp.

I did manage to get through the entire article, but I had to have a barff bag handy. I nearly lost it when Keller said how great the stimulus had worked. And his mention that the two programs that are going to go completely bankrupt in the next few years, Medicare and Social Security, are not to be touched for ANY reason. This jassack can´t even ask the simpole question of where is the money going to come from? With unemployment rising, that means a lot less people available to pay taxes, so I ask again, where is the money going to come from? Oh, I know. Just raise taxes on the rich!

The HOUSE nees to pass a mandatory spending referendum. It must define what is in the budget and what it was to be spent for. The House Owns the entire budget process. Can not they redefine what the money in past bills was allocated for that the President signed?

Now the President wants to control the entire budget and spend it his way. The house needs to counter that and force it to the SCOTUS for a ruling. There is NO WAY the President should be reallocating money voted for/signed for another purpose.

There is no need not to furlough air traffic controllers or any other critical, mission essential federal agency personnel. There are plenty of useless "management analysts" and "program analysts" to furlough - actually - just get rid of these positions and people. These positions are nothing but federal govt welfare for certain people who live in or near by Washington, DC. Actually, these people, if they didn´t have access to good paying, but useless govt jobs by virtue of where they live - would be lucky to be a greeter at a Walmart.

As for the Romneys - good and decent folks and even though he lost, Mitt and Ann are the paragons of grace where as the winners, the Obamas are anything but...

I would like to believe that some of obama´s boot-polishers have suddenly figured out where their manhood is located but common sense tells me that they are simply in the middle of a dilemma, not being able to spin current White House performance in any positive way whatsoever.

Keller define´s obama´s failures as "missed opportunities" when obama is so inept he doesn´t even realize that he had opportunities. With him it´s a constant childish game of "I Won" and he hasn´t a clue how to win his way out of the mess that he has created. Republicans are being blamed for stonewalling, something they should have done far more freqently since 2008. Then there would have been no sequester at all, just a series of needed cuts in wasteful spending.

Let me introduce the premise: I am 68, came to America 20 years ago from the USSR. The point of this intro is that all my life I was asking this question: why if the person in power has several choices to accomplish something, this person usually does something to inflict the worst possible pain to the majority of the people? This was in the USSR when officials were controlling all aspects of our lives to leave us with poor housing, bad and little food, absolutely horrible healthcare, etc...
In the last 5-6 years I see the distinct signs of this in America.
My answer to the question why government officials do it that way is that they are sick sadists. It is not enough for them just to be powerful and corrupt. They have sick sadist agenda in their blood. And they vet the people for their cabal like gangster do their initiations.
I have no other explanation!

The comments on the article are revealing about the gulf of opinion from here to there. Mayor Bloomberg said that the amount of money is infinite. This seems to be the general attitude. People who depend on the government should always get their increase each year, never mind that the people who earn the money for it are getting real cuts every year. There should always be enough money for everything we want to do. Take off all spending restrictions and Obama can pay for everything with platinum trillion dollar coins including supporting the other half of the population when they too become dependent on the government. No need to motivate anyone to work or produce etc. Liberalism is the stubborn refusal to grow up and accept responsibility as an adult! Libs in the comments condemn Keller for straying from Krugmans teachings!

The Republicans should attach a specification of how spending is to be handled when we bump up against the debt limit to the next increase that they provide for the debt limit. Next they should hold zero based budget hearings on 1/2 of the budget and attach the next increase in the debt limit to this budget. Handle the other half of our budget the next year. If the Senate refuses to go along or Obama vetoes then there will be no increase in the debt limit. Obama won´t be able to use this to destroy the country because there will be a law that specifies what will be payed and what won´t from the current government income.

Agree #6 nails a lot of it for us!

#17, agree Mitt & Co are youthful, and I´m a fan of his.
Doubt he could do it again in ten years.

Mitt was 65 during the 2012 cycle, and next time in 2016 thus will be 69.
That´s the age of Reagan in 1980.

I favor Mitt in 2016. He´s the best available. Maturity and experience count.

In ten years, at 75, even if still more youthful than most, neither he nor Ann
would necessarily want to jump back in the fray at that point in their lives.
They have too much else to live for.

But we never know what the state of national affairs might be by then, either.
Mitt is probably the cleanest and maybe the smartest guy ever nominated. We need him.

Sometimes newspapers like the New York Times can be so biased toward liberal politicians that they actually end up
hurting them.

For example, over the weekend Mayor Bloomberg and Chuckie Schumer were booed during a parade in Queens by angry victims of Hurricane Sandy who had not yet received adequate government clean-up help.

Mayor Bloomberg and Senator Chuckie were surprised by the reaction and soon beat a quick retreat into their limosines and escaped.

Of course they were surprised. The New York Times and other liberal MSM outlets have done everything possible to keep the poor post-Sandy response of FEMA and other government agencies out of the news in order to protect Obama, just as they did everything possible during Hurricane Katrina to hurt George Bush.

But that left Mayor Bloomberg and Chuckie Schumer too uninformed to know the anger they would be greeted with at the parade. And how is Chuckie supposed to campaign in Queens now that everyone is mad at him?

Obama was, is and always will be two things: inept and a coward. He lacks real knowledge of anything outside the privileged elitist life he has lead and the ridiculously liberal institutions of ´learning´ he spent his developmental years in. He has no idea that there really are evil people, people intent on death and mayhem. He has no conception that his beloved islam is often perverted into a system of slavery and death. He is clueless and dangerous and the only people with less real world understanding than he, are the blind lemmings that voted for him.

It´s a game they are playing with us. Too many of them coming out. Clinton-Obama are puppets and only do what they are told as does the press via the new organization. It´s treason time.

this was all 100% predictable. Protect Obama so he´s in for the full 8 years and then, we´ll all act like "journalists." Keller and his ilk sicken me.

Facebook removes my post about
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy
Fox News, by Todd Starnes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´
Again Declares Debate ´Over´

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'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White
House had IRS target conservatives

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Lawmakers Call for Examination of Hate
Speech in Media Bill introduced in wake

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

Eric Cantor: Obama and I totally

immigration yesterday

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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
