Does Obama just hate his job?
Salon, by Alex Pareene

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/5/2012 6:05:56 AM

Hey, maybe Obama just doesn’t like being president? And that’s why he was so “off” last night? It’s as good a theory as any. Here’s Kevin Baker, at Harper’s: Instead, Obama signaled that he wants out. His diehard supporters are already trying to wave away this weirdly awful, unengaged performance as just his latest turn of Zen mastery, but that dog won’t hunt. They should steel themselves for more shocking displays of indifference over the next month on the part of this strangely diffident individual. It’s quite possible that he means what he says,

Aw, man.....nobody told him this job was going to be hard!!

He's had everything handed to him all his life...never had to lift a finger for much at all. An Affirmative Action life if you will. Why on earth would he change now? He looks at himself like he's some sort of rock star!

I don't think he hates the job he just hates the work attached to it but loves the perks. Let's give him what he wants. A one way ticket out of town.

I was just reading something a few weeks ago in which aides close to Obama were supposedly relieved that Obama's dislike for Romney had stoked his competitive instincts. They had an unnerving feeling that the president was just mailing it in.

The bottom line, I think, is that he wanted this job mostly so that he could give speeches and feel important. I don't believe he is terribly interested in those areas of the presidency that involve work. And I think his much-ballyhooed magical oratory is starting to wear thin, even to himself.

A review of Obama's "job" record, including his present one, indicates that he always had a "job" wherein if he didn't choose to show up for work, no one really made an issue of it.

He possesses no value system as to responsibility. As such, he likes to be President, but has assigned those unpleasant tasks related to the job to others. So, for the first time in our history, we have czars in our government.

He's never really done anything at all as President but fundraise, vacation and appear on talk shows. His signature stunt, Obamacare, was turned over to Reid and Pelosi. His 'executive orders' were hatched by the motely crew of incompetent moonbats he surrounds himself with. What stood out most in his debate performance is his complete lack of understanding of his own policies. He can't defend them because he can't even explain them. He is by far the biggest mistake America has ever made.

Poster 8 cites the radicals that obama appointed to powerful regulatory positions who answer to no one. Iit is frightening that Americans are mostly unaware of this threat from a gang of really foul people who have never worked outside of academics or social activism can exercise unrestrained power. If obama is reelected, grab a tight rein.

Sorry I'm late in writing this post...had to go the corner store for more Kleenex...tears just streaming from reading this sad piece of cover...

Late at night, after Michelle falls asleep and Valerie has taken away the warm milk glass and empty cookie plate, our dear leader begins his nightly thoughts about his...Daddy.

And what happened to his daddy? Daddy wasn't as smart as this son, though. He is planning his "retirement" early.

Sun and golf, then speaking engagements that will make the bank account of "man about town" Bill Clinton look cheap.

You've got to know how to play this game folks...especially when you are the smartest and greatest leader this country has and will ever have.

You should feel blessed, if not now, then he will spend the rest of his life explaining to you why you should!

It must be frustrating when the brilliance of your leadership is no longer apparent. Having to stoop to the menial task of convincing the electorate that we will be much worse off absent his presence in the Oval Office, the president cannot find the words to compel that conclusion. It is becoming difficult to sell failure and despair.

Laughable is the quote where he hates the drones and killing innocent people. I thought he likened it to a video game and that was the only part of working as president he did like.

I suspect that Moochelle would happily leave the White House. Zippy the wonder dummy, I'm not so sure about.

Obama would define leadership as: Hehas an idea, a directon to go, a goal to meet....it's up too you peaons to work out the details. Its why he has a shadw government staffed with 47 unelected un confirmed czars. Obama's idea of work is signing the paycheck.

I believe that it was Mark Stern who stated that the United States is the largest democracy in the word where the "Head of State" and the "Head of the Government" is the same person. Most democratic countries have a Prime Minister to run the government and a President, King or Queen to be head of state. Head of state gets to do the ribbon cutting ceremonies, state dinners and foreign travel. The prime minister ha t herd the cats.

Obama wants to be head of state ...... not head of the government.

I've said previously I think this all goes back to the time when Michelle and her entourage ran away to Marbella. Gossip was that she did so because Obama had invited Oprah to his birthday party without asking her first.

I thought at the time, as now, that he had told the Mooch of his reservations about re-election and she had exploded. No doubt pressure was immediately brought to bear and he realized his only way out was to lose the debates and lose the election. In the meantime he could have interesting times orating to adoring crowds.

If O has too much of a hard time between now and the election, he might do a Jackson Jr. Otherwise, he'll blame the altitude, Romney's bullying and lies, golf withdrawal syndrome or whatever, but he'll still be able to follow in Blair and Clinton's footsteps with the nonprofit foundations and speaking gigs. He'll thrive on that routine. Someone to manage the foundation and himself to orate, receive adulation, and play golf while the Mooch shops or stays at home telling people what to eat. Or maybe she'll run UN healthy eating programs all over the world. Imagine that--"Growing Arugula and Beekeeping in SubSaharan Africa."

I sensed he hated the job from the start. Remember he was complaining about being stuck in the house only weeks into the job. After the other night and today's news about Obama calling Mitt a " liar", his job is going to be over in a McGovern/Nixon kind of way. He'll be lucky to win his home state.

Obama hates any job. If he loses, he will become one more wealthy welfare recipient who doesn't have to work but who receives a check from the poor taxpayers for the rest of his miserable life. He will go off and play golf to his hearts content while his children go to private schools and Michelle goes on TV. They will all benefit from our hard work. Why should he want to be President?

Obama thought being president would be just like every other job he has had. Lots of perks, sets his own hours, a bunch of people kissing his butt, lots of authority but not much responsibility, and plenty of people to do the real work while he claims the credit. The reality is such a bummer.

The author gets closer to the truth, I think, in the last paragraph: He just HATES Romney so much that he can't stand to be around him. In fact, he hates all Republicans because he can't stand to deal with them. In short, he IS a hater. He is what he and his party call other people. That's why Obama doesn't have a problem with Bill Ayers who hates his fellow Americans so much that he tried to kill them and still thinks he did not kill enough of them and thinks that another 20 million or more probably need to be killed. I'd venture a guess that Alex Pareene is also a hater.

It has long been obvious that Obama loves the perks, the prestige and the playtoys, but that he hates the work, and he especially hates being held responsible for anything.

Looks like a bunch of Lefty writers are beginning to see the writing on the wall, and are scrambling to paper it over.

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary.

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

As soon as the photograph of Soviet propaganda posters in Jay Carney’s kitchen hit the Internet, right-wing pundits began to draw conclusions about White House Press Secretary’s ideology, morals, and political leanings. It was as if things that a man merely places on his walls and looks at day after day can be any indication of his life choices. If that were so, the meals in Carney’s kitchen would also probably match the menu of the place and time of the posters. His family would be living on a diet of beets, gruel, occasional rat, and thinly sliced boiled jackboots, which

McALLEN — Five words sealed the fate of the man who used to be the highest law enforcement official in Hidalgo County. “I plead guilty, your honor,” former Sheriff Lupe Treviño said Monday morning when asked for his plea on the charge of money laundering.

BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

As I sit writing from Berlin, Germany—I woke up this morning with the news that a demented American Nazi and KKK leader, Glenn Miller, has been arrested as the main suspect in the Kansas City murder of 3 American Jews. (Snip) Fortunately, a quick look at some of the anti-Semitic extremist websites has led to the following post by Mr. Miller, reproduced verbatim below: Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama This is some big dookee, yaw’ll. http://runronpaul.com/interviews/isr…on-paul-obama/ Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican
