Obama Is Right
American Thinker, by William L. Gensert

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 10/22/2012 6:03:16 AM

Obama has been telling the nation tales since his election. In fact, his entire life has been one long story with him as writer, director, producer, and star -- you could call it "A Barack Obama Production." It's not that he hasn't told us stories; it's that the ones he has told bear little resemblance to reality. After all the suffering America has experienced while he was busy getting the "policy right," there is no one left who still believes in Barack's brilliance.

I was with the author right up to the last paragraph, where he says the Obama reign has been "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

What Obama's tale means for the US is a corrosion of values and economic chaos.

Another costly experiment in redistribution and 'pay-back' has come to the same conclusion as all the others. But this time we added the twist of racist hatefulness. All of this was just a cover to raid the treasury, run up the national credit card and feather the nests of political supporters. Will we even have enough orange jump suits for all these criminals ?

It's pretty funny that the UN is going to monitor this election for republican cheaters.These people want to impose their agenda on this country and won't get any resistance from Obama on new style global taxes or gun regulations to name two. They also want to dictate housing policy based on diversity.They really hate white flight mobility.

Channeling *Alexander Pope

Obama and Biden – America’s Heroic Couplet

Though poor his gifts, he rose to craggy heights
(Which fact will give his chon’clers sleepless nights).
A cunning man whose seasoning was spare,
The cupboard of his history strangely bare.
To question where he came from, whom he’d known,
Framed those who asked such racist to the bone.
Despite his wish to throw us off the scent,
We now know something of his youthful bent:
He tacked near shore; no destination marked;
This way and that, upon no quest embarked,
‘Til Saul and Wright and Ayers and all their kind
Found shelter in the harbor of his mind.

He won! The guise was dropped, the man revealed,
His loathing for our country-- unconcealed.
He told the world how wicked we had been;
Obsessed about the color of our skin;
Spent massive sums to fund his social schemes;
Bowed in obeyance to enviros’ dreams;
Made ''jobs'' the word that dare not speak its name;
Used talk of being civil to inflame;
Ignored the rule of law—his oath betrayed;
And for the Constitution, scorn displayed;
Lied through his teeth about the coming boom;
Denied the rights of those inside the womb.

The time is near; the stakes too high to game.
A new beginning? Four more years of same?
So now, the biggest question of them all:
Has this pretender kept us in his thrall?

*18th century English satirist famous for his satirical verse using ''heroic couplets,'' two rhyming lines in iambic pentameter.

Excellent recap of total failure. Failure to lead, failure to do anything really but fly our plane from one social event to another, missing in action when we needed a commander in chief to be present and in his chair for very important decision making. All of it thanks to the state MSM media for failing to vet this imposter. He and the MSM have placed our country in jeopardy. God help us that it is not too late to regroup. We need to give him permission to go back to Chicago so he can play golf and socialize with his array of entertainers and actors and party without the distractions of running the greatest country on earth. A failure, the magnitude of which this country has not experienced. Pathetic.

On Day One of his addle-headed administration, Obama should’ve been hard-wired to a polygraph machine along with his closest associates beginning with his Director of Obfuscation David Axelrod. No one can lie more often and with a straighter face than Duplicitous Dave. Next in line to be hooked up to a handy-dandy detector of lies should’ve been our mainstream lapdog media as accessories before, during and after the fact of Obama’s four years of failure.

But, of all the cockamamie ideas and policies our president-in-training came up with, “Leading From Behind” has to be his cockamamiest. What’s next? Here is there? Up is down? Yes is no? Wrong is right?

At this most critical juncture in our nation’s history, I don’t believe the following caveat can be repeated too often:

"Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything." – Joseph Stalin

Beware!

The untold story of Obama is the story of the boy who would be king. Unfortunately for him his blood line is that of a cur. A mongrel. He's a man without a country... a family...or a history. He lost any identity he might have had when he changed his name to one sounding more Arab to ease his admittance as a foreign student into the University levels of higher education.

He's a figment of his own imagination.

From birth he's been steeped in the bitter tea of communism and socialism by everyone around him. He identifies with the liberal socialist professors found in the staff lounges of any number of 'Institutions of Higher Learning' across this land. These same professors likely view him as an useful idiot. He's never had an original thought in his head. The chutzpah of writing his autobiography when he's only thirty-four years old (and there are questions as to whether it was ghost-written by Bill Ayers) and still in law school indicates a personality that is narcissistic and filled with undeserved self-worth.

He is a legend in his own mind. His head is so full of socialist dogma and hate for any capitalist enterprise system he can't keep it contained. He can't help but speak it because it's in every fibre of his being.

His white blood frustrates him, his Arab blood he has to deny for political reasons and he isn't really black enough to have 'creds' with the celebrity set he so admires..

Yes, #8 and #9. I concur. And worse, my fellow citizens elected to our highest office this piece de merde with his equally loathesome wife.

I also like the references to his fondness for celebrities. It does indeed suggest a smallness of mind, shallowness, and lack of seriousness and character, and perhaps even more serious flaws of a clinical nature.

It's demoralizing that so many Americans can't connect the dots and place the blame for our serious economic (and other) problems where they belong - with this incompetent boob. And the irony is, he blames everyone else for his problems. Is he the first sociopathic president?

A disgrace to America, american ethics. Get him out of here please. Dems for years have been twisting the truth so as to get the black vote. He never did anything in his life and unfortunately for his ego, he's going to go down as the WORST president in American history.

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman    Original Article

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives.

Barack Obama´s Constant State
of Cognitive Dissonance
American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 1/25/2014 7:16:10 AM     Post Reply
Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied. On the same day, Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
