Barack Obama let America down
Morning Journal [Lorain, OH], by Tom Skoch

Original Article

Posted By:Harlowe, 11/4/2012 8:14:05 AM

Election Day is Tuesday, and this is one election no voter should sit out. Every vote needs to be cast because the stakes are nothing less than the existence of the United States of America as we’ve known it since 1776. In 2008, American optimism prevailed and the nation elected Barack Obama its first black president. He was an understandable choice: He was a likeable man with a golden gift for spellbinding speeches that overrode his thin resume. He promised hope and change and created a vision of national unity, an end to venomous partisan politics

I'm not so sure he 'let America down' as much as he tried 'take America down.' Call me crazy but that is the way I see it.

He's guilty of malfeasance if anything. He was, and is unprepared for leadership on any level. His record speaks for itself.

The mindless celebrities in H'wood are in overdrive, literally destroying their own careers for this fraud. Ever time a celebrity comes out for Obama I add them to my list of movies and tv shows I'll never watch.

#1 is correct, in my opinion.
Barack's formative years were spent in Indonesia, where he was exposed to the muslim faith through his step father, lo lo soetoro, who barack never talks about.
And in that process, barack learned to hold the U.S. in disdain.
His disdain for the U.S. exists to this day, and he shows it every time he curls his upper lip into that sneer that people mistake for a smile.
How he ever got elected, and still has any support in the U.S., will baffle political anaylysts and historians for decades to come.

Barack 0bama let America down; he let the four Americans who were murdered in Benghazi down. Actually, he refused to help them even when they asked, and these four brave Americans died, because 0bama let them down. 0bama just gave a speech about having all of us come together and help each other. He did not help the Navy Seals that died, he does not help his own family who live illegally in America and have no money. Even though he is a multimillionaire, his Aunt Zetie lives in government housing living on welfare and food stamps; 0bama's half brother had to ask a friend for money for an operation. 0bama is all talk, and in for himself.

Too many "co-incidences", "mistakes" and "gaffes" to blame such a demonstrable pattern on simple incompetence. Too many puzzle pieces that fit perfectly that form a picture of someone who's intentionally making America weaker.

'He was a likeable man with a golden gift for spellbinding speeches'. Only if he had teleprompters to read from as he delivered canned speeches to stupid people with guilt complexes.

When he had to debate Romney on his own merits he was exposed as an incompetent liar and not the person constructed by the MSM. The NY Times is one of his biggest enablers and as soon as they go broke in the near future, the country will be far better off.

I believe it was clear from the beginning that Obama waqs a far lefty. His past was clearly indicative of these traits. This nation is basically optomistic. Combine this with "white guilt" and Obama was elected.

We should never vote just for race but for the character traits that show over a long period of years. In 2008 I would have proudly voted for Colin Powell, not because of his race but his accomplishments. Since then the General has greatly surprised me and sadly has spent his capital on race rather than character. In a better world Gen. Powell would have been the first black president and a very good president indeed.

Let's just vote for the really qualified and really optimistic fixer ande get on the right path.

Øbama sickens. He is constantly using class warfare as a cover to bamboozle Americans into thinking his tax hikes are a good thing, when the taxes are hiked on rich people. He constantly criticizes rich Americans, while he lives a grand lifestyle that most rich people would be ashamed to live - lavish parties nightly at the white house, chefs flown in from out of state, endless trips and vacations around the world, endless golf. A pure, evil hypocrite.
And all this on the taxpayers dime.

Not only has he let America down; he has let himself down. He is the biggest spineless coward ever. He has proved over and over what a useless idiot he is. We know he is not a leader in any sense of the word. He doesn't have the capacity for it.

He's the joke of the century.

I never thought there was anything remotely likeable about him, because he struck me as a total con artist, phony, from the first sanctimonious speech I heard him make. I guess almost half the country is too stupid, lazy or deluded to apply the traditional standards to this guy. Much of the free pass was provided by Karl Rove apparently who cautioned Bush against defending, explaining, or selling policies that the DNC redefined. That passivity enabled the DNC to hang the economic downturn of 2008 on Republicans when the start of it was a result of Democrat pressure for bogus home loans to people who did not qualify. Bush raised the alarm, but did not go to the mat. Enter the blank slate, BHO.

It wasn't that long ago that Ronald Reagan fought tooth and nail to defeat communism even at the risk of Iran/Contra.Now we have a communist president who could get re-elected with illegal alien votes.He blew money like someone wanting to break the country's back.Just in case his initial plans didn't destroy the economy,he has Obamacare as a back up plan to finish business off.

Slews of companies will have 49 employees or employees working 29 hour weeks to avoid paying insurance. It isn't a matter of stinginess like the left believes but razor thin profit margins because of cut throat competition.

Now,Bronco Bahmuh has created another firestorm with free gas.Even if you approve of this,you have to have a strong police presence to keep order.

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.

Do you remember the original robber barons? No, they were not the great American industrialists/philanthropists of the late 19th century—men who were unfairly tagged with the moniker. I mean the originals: the German barons of the 13th century who controlled the Rhine River, which was the primary channel of commerce and communications for central Europe. Their castles overlooked the river, and they exacted tribute from every passing ship. The barons ignored customary "just" tolls, charged whatever the commerce would bear, exacted payment "in kind" from cargoes, and exercised power by controlling strategic territory.

Party of the rich: In Congress,

WASHINGTON — Republicans are the party of the rich, right? It´s a label that has stuck for decades, and you´re hearing it again as Democrats complain about GOP opposition to raising the minimum wage and extending unemployment benefits. But in Congress, the wealthiest among us are more likely to be represented by a Democrat than a Republican. Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. Most are in overwhelmingly Democratic states like New York and California.

The Restore Military Religious Freedom coalition, a group of two dozen like-minded religious liberty organizations, announced Thursday that they are ready to offer assistance to any Air Force Academy cadet who faces repercussions for writing Bible verses on their hallway whiteboards. The Air Force Academy admitted Wednesday that a cadet leader had to remove a Bible verse he had displayed outside his dorm room because it offended non-Christians and could “cause subordinates to doubt the leader’s religious impartiality.” The controversy started when a cadet leader posted a passage of scripture on his whiteboard with a quote from the

COLUMBUS, Ohio - State lawmakers in Ohio withdrew legislation Wednesday that mirrors an Arizona bill that’s come under fire for protecting those who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. Republican state Rep. Tim Derickson and Democratic state Rep. Bill Patmon issued a joint statement citing concern over the bill’s unintended consequences. “The intent of (our bill) was to ensure Ohioans’ religious freedom by protecting their ability to freely worship and preventing any laws from burdening the free exercise of religion,” their statement said. “However, with the controversy that is occurring in Arizona,

Progressives takes lessons
from ‘Downton Abbey’
Washington Post, by George F. Will    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 2/13/2014 10:45:11 AM     Post Reply
Many “Downton Abbey” watchers are nostalgia gluttons who grieved when Lord Grantham lost his fortune in Canadian railroad shares. There are, however, a discerning few whose admirable American sensibilities caused them to rejoice at Grantham’s loss: “Now perhaps this amiable but dilettantish toff will get off his duff and get a job.” This drama’s verisimilitude extends to emphasizing that his lordship had a fortune to squander only because he married an American heiress. By battening on what they disdained, this republic’s commercial culture, many British aristocrats could live beyond their inherited means — actual work being, of course, unthinkable.

Ohio wind turbine project

TOLEDO, Ohio - A group of birding enthusiasts hopes a decision to halt plans for a wind turbine at an Ohio National Guard base will send a message to developers proposing other wind power projects along Lake Erie. Federal officials sent notice this past week that they are pulling back from building the proposed wind turbine just weeks after two organizations threatened to take legal action. The American Bird Conservancy and the Black Swamp Bird Observatory argued that the wind turbine would endanger migrating birds and bald eagles while also violating several federal laws designed to protect those birds.

In a brief to be filed with the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, 19 Democratic senators are siding with the Obama administration against evangelical Christian businessmen who argue that paying for their employees’ birth control, a requirement under Obamacare, violates their company’s religious freedom. The senators—five of them women—argue in their “friend of the court” brief that the owners of the Oklahoma-based crafts store chain Hobby Lobby are not exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate simply because some forms of birth control offend their religious beliefs.

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'

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.

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

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."

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
