Obama: 'Michelle and I
Will Be Fine No Matter
What Happens' in the Election

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/23/2012 4:30:58 PM

In his latest fundraising email to supporters, President Barack Obama says, "Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens" in the election. Instead, Obama's trying to win the contest "for our country and middle-class families." Here's the full pitch: I don't want to lose this election. Not because of what losing would mean for me -- Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens. But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families. This race is very close.

That used to be
If you can forget
Don't you worry 'bout me

This is very telling.
I'll bet his campaign handlers are groaning and scolding him in private after this one. You don't ever publicly admit the possibility of defeat, no matter how you couch it with other supposedly hopeful words. His ego is so big that he must have been unusually downbeat about something to let this comment slide in.

If it were really "all tied up", he wouldn't have said it. This man is speaking like a man who came out of a meeting where the DNC's own hidden internal polls confirmed he's definitely losing in Ohio and the rest of the swing states. For the first time, he's beginning to not believe his own BS propaganda any more.

President Obama has already "checked out". He has no desire to even pretend like he cares. Campaigning has turned into something resembling work. His fancy has turned to Hawaii and surfer boys.

May you be just as fine as the private sector economy you have destroyed. May there be a huge surge in private sector confidence the day after your loss so that the GOP has enough spine to prevent any further destruction until the replacements come on board in early January. May God remind you of your attacks on the liberties He gave to the people of this nation when you ask him why you have been brought low.

Sure, you and Michelle will be fine because we the taxpayers will be paying you $191000 a year for the rest of your life; you will also receive Secret Service protection and office expenses all at our expense. If you really cared about those who are out of work, you would forgo your "pension" package. Oops, sorry, I know that is something you just cannot do. You will take our money and run around the world with your teleprompters making thousands of dollars for your dumb speeches and laughing all the way to the bank. You'll be just fine.

They'll be fine? No kidding. They're going to a $37 million estate in Hawaii that is being financed by the Penny Pritzker money (she's the heiress to the Hyatt money using the cover of raising money for the Obama library (smallest library in the world since his penchant for personal education, study, research, and facts have proven books don't matter to him) . Supposedly Ms. Pritzker already has sosme $17 million already banked and is raising the rest. This was widely talked about in the last few weeks and supposedly it was the big mouth mother-in-law who blew the cover when she talked about looking forward to no more Chicago winters.

These grifters will be missed by no one with an IQ that cracks 15.

I don't like fajitas. I mean, I really don't like the smell, the sizzle, or the texture of beef fajitas. If I'm in a Mexican restaurant eating enchiladas and some waitdude or dudette swings a plate of that nasty stuff by my table, it ruins my dinner. Obama is the heaping pile of steaming rancid overcooked leathery gristle that the restaurant wants you to smash between a tortilla and throw as much fixin's on it that will make it semi-palatable. It's always a disappointment when you cherish the taste of the wrapper and heave the ingredients down a low-flow toilet that backs up just before you go to vote for a new president.

I'm pretty much done with having a stinkin' fajita shoved down my throat every day for the last four years and being forced to pay for it.

(ok, weak analogy, but I really don't like fajitas) Zippy and Mooch will be just fine. Do us all a favor, you two, and stay away from our table, the stench is overwhelming.

Democrat presidents never leave. They want to be caught at being more criminal than they let on, and that you thought. Depend on the sealed documents coming out. Maybe a book spilling the beans on who played along with not vetting. His gay friends and their parties in the Lincoln bedroom. His muslim friends everywhere, and how he knew McCain would stop Bachmann's inquiry. How close he came to working that chaos thing into a caliphate. What the video was all about. That ring he wears so openly. The scars. The real father. How he came to be groomed for his role, from American cipher and undistinguished senator, to leftist mastermind. He wants you to know he was the worst that ever was. Hillary as a blackmailer? Hillary's FBI files are to be measured the way she will be measured under him. He wants to continue to outrage and send tingles of breathtaking awe to his congregants. In any future battle between picking the most virtuous brilliant American candidate, or the dangerous and cosmic evil genius, he must reign like Miles Davis over any white wigger pretender. Unless he needs the same help to move him into the U.N. or whatever is now more prized than the intentionally ruined American Presidency. He was done with it in a year and a half, and the white journalist class never caught on.

WASHINGTON – Lampooned as a political caveman, Sen. Ted Cruz took a star turn Saturday night at the annual Gridiron dinner. Cruz’s constituency lies far beyond the Beltway. And he has carefully cultivated an “outsider” image somewhat at odds with the annual gathering of the capital’s political and journalism elite – a white tie and tails affair that features satirical songs performed by members of the Fourth Estate. Presidents usually attend, though this year, Barack Obama sent Secretary of State John Kerry in his place. Cruz representing the Republicans, former Florida Gov.

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a presidential run in 2016, but mostly hawking a soon-to-premiere TV show.

I do not like his health care scam,´ she recited in a sing-song voice. ´I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books.

The crowd here at the Conservative Political Action Conference gleefully embraces the political figures Democrats and the media love to hate, and it is full of adoration for Sarah Palin. “You love her because she drives liberals crazy,” the National Rifle Association’s Chris Cox said as he introduced the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee. Palin delivered the closing remarks at this year’s conference and, in a speech that touched on topics ranging from Obamacare to the Republican establishment to Ted Cruz to the war on women, she brought the audience of approximately 11,000 to its feet repeatedly

Dr. Ben Carson teased thousands of conservatives Saturday morning about his political future, saying he does not know what God has in store for him, suggesting that he could have a future in elective politics. “America is a land of dreams,” he said, recalling as a child that he wanted so badly to become a physician that he actually looked forward to going to the doctor’s office. Mr. Carson’s message rocked the crowd at the 41st annual Conservative Political Action Conference, where activists from across the country came to see some of the GOP’s potential 2016 presidential contenders. This included

Is Ben Carson 2016´s sleeper candidate?

Neurologist Ben Carson could be 2016’s sleeper presidential contender. You won’t find him in early polls, and he doesn’t make headlines for huddling with top advisers in primary states. Carson is lauded for his plainspoken yet forceful ability to speak clearly about the party’s values. The retired physician rose to prominence after delivering a controversial speech at last year’s National Prayer Breakfast, where he lambasted President Obama and his policies while standing just feet away from the president. Now, his supporters believe Carson, as a black Republican and a true political outsider, could be the one GOP candidate capable of

Thousands of bands head to South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, next week. A few will come from Chicago. A handful will trek from Seattle. Plenty of “based-in-Brooklyn” bands who have been in New York six months will show up. But Boston beats them all. I can’t scientifically prove our contingent to the 50,000-strong music festival tops every other city’s, but I know it’s true. Berklee College of Music and Web magazine Vanyaland host an excellent Boston showcase Thursday at noon in Brush Square Park. Our acts landed some of the coolest events: Air Traffic Controller will play the Grammy

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report. Issa told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he personally apologized to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). His apology comes after the House earlier Thursday voted down a motion to censure the chairman for his treatment of Cummings. Issa ended a hearing on the IRS scandal Wednesday despite Cummings´s attempt to make a statement and ask a question. When Cummings persisted in his effort to speak, Issa personally cut

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a president run in 2016. ´It depends on what it is that Americans really, really want in a candidate,´ Palin said Friday night. ´If they want a fighter, if they want someone who can so respect our exceptionalism, everything that makes America great, the promise of America. And if we don´t find that, then I would run.´ [Snip] Asked who her favorite presidential hopefuls are so far, she singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while

The Marriage of Obama´s Parents:
´In Name Only´?

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

The millionaire attorney funding a ‘spoiled’ cheerleader’s lawsuit against her own parents let the teenager drink in his house, threw ‘alcoholic parties’ and apparently allowed her to have her first drop of booze, according to court documents. When Rachel Canning was a 15-year-old freshman she got so drunk on vodka at Jon Inglesino’s home that she was sick all over the sidewalk and into a garbage can after her dad Sean picked her up for a basketball game. And according to the Canning family, Inglesino’s wife Amy gave Rachel and her friends wine coolers in the back of a limo

Disbelieving family and friends of an ex-Navy SEAL who died of an apparent drugs overdose on the ship made famous in the movie Captain Phillips are convinced of a ´cover-up´ and have called for a US investigation into his death, MailOnline can reveal today. The body of Mark Kennedy, a super fit, highly-decorated member of the elite fighting force, was found inside a cabin on the cargo ship Maersk Alabama - the vessel involved in a 2009 hijacking that ended with Somali pirates shot dead by SEALs. Another former SEAL, Jeffrey Reynolds, was found alongside him, also dead from a suspected drug

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at

KINGSTON - More than 150 years after European colonial powers abolished slavery, a coalition of Caribbean nations is considering legal action to seek a formal apology and monetary compensation. Caribbean leaders meeting next week in St. Vincent are expected to study a broad legal outline for the reparations claim prepared by a British law firm. The subject of reparations has simmered in the Caribbean for many years and opinions are divided. Some see reparations as delayed justice, while others see it as an empty claim and a distraction from modern social problems in Caribbean societies. Slavery ended throughout the Caribbean

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. It said earlier in the day that no distress signal
