Obama on Thanksgiving: ´A day to
fight the overwhelming urge
to take a nap´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 11/22/2012 9:18:21

On behalf of the Obama family — Michelle, Malia, Sasha and Bo — I want to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. For us, like so many of you, this is a day full of family and friends; food and football. It’s a day to fight the overwhelming urge to take a nap — at least until after dinner. But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.

In his Thanksgiving message to Americans, Obama still couldn´t resist the temptation to mention the campaign and other self-aggrandizing comments.

His obligatory mention of God was in the form of giving thanks that bad things were not happening to HIM: "Because there but for the grace of God go I."

This whole message missed the point: When you "give thanks", you thank someone, not simply circumstances. Obama´s message was full of circumstances but no recognition that all our blessings come from God and it is to Him we should be thankful.

Trite
pithy
shallow
lacking in substance

" a nap"... the people in Israel are not napping today, the men and women in our military are not napping today...

We have the best, most free (still as of this moment) country... we have worked hard for this freedom with blood sweat and tears. The men and women that travelled to this country for freedom to worship were grateful to God for the blessings of home, food, and family- and the ability to pray.

a nap... that is the best this Occupant could come up with?

So disheartening.

To paraphrase PJ O´Rourke´s comment on Jimmy Carter, go ahead and take a nap, Mr. President. The country will breathe a sigh of relief knowing you´re off the job for a few hours.

Not being a real American, the Turkey-in-Chief has no understanding of the meaning of Thanksgiving, therefore I can not return the sentiment. Any words I have for him at this point must remain unprinted.

Trite...pithy...shallow...lacking in substance. How true, MMC . . . even his speech writers can´t come up with a single profound remark. As I´ve said before, a middle-schooler writing such tripe would get nothing better than a C (for trying)

And maybe Rep. Clymer, the self-appointed de-coder of every utterence by a white person as racist, can splain ´A day to fight the overwhelming urge to take a nap´ for us. Couldn´t be a vague reference to laziness, could it? Nah, the person saying it is the wrong - er - right color.

It’s hard to believe that not one speech writer could come up with a heartfelt-sounding pronouncement. It would be interesting to see Obama’s blue-lined drafts to see what sort of things he refused to utter.

Not a smidgeon of credibility
in Obama´s IRS claim
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

According to the president of the United States, the IRS scandal over agents targeting conservative groups is merely the result of "bone-headed decisions" by a few confused employees. And Barack Obama adds there’s not a "smidgeon" of corruption. Wait! Remember when this scandal broke last May, a president looking much like Barack Obama was so totally publicly outraged over this violation of government trust that he fired the IRS´ acting commissioner? Yet now, it´s all simply an unfortunate few instances of bone-headeded-ness that just happened to prevent dozens of groups opposed to Obama from participating in the 2012 election campaign.

Don´t be fooled into thinking that the 2016 presidential race and its main competitors will be determined in Washington. It can look that way with Washington media talking to Washington inmates about Washington issues on Washington shows. Rand Paul. Hillary Clinton. Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz. Paul Ryan. Peter King. (Just kidding.) Because these past 1,842 days with a rookie senator pretending to be the nation´s chief executive have shown how really well that works.

Did you ever find an old high school yearbook and shake your head at what´s changed since then? Not just the obvious clothing and hairstyles. But so many of the plans and promise of so many people. That´s what we did. We went back 1,818 days to one of the first speeches Barack Obama gave as the 44th president. Back to Feb. 12, 2009, less than a month from his first morning in office. There he was in East Peoria, Ill., at the massive Caterpillar factory, selling his then $879 billion stimulus spending plan wending its way through Congress.

You may not have been thinking about it at the time, but on Tuesday, when the president was delivering the State of the Union, we were observing a tradition prescribed by our Constitution. All branches of government and all walks of life gathering round in the people’s House. It is democracy at its finest. But these blessings do come with responsibilities. The Constitution also requires the president and Congress to heed the will of you, the people, and work together to carry out the business of the country. So in that spirit, Republicans identified 4 areas of bipartisanship.

Hi, everybody. This week, I delivered my State of the Union Address. Today, here’s the three-minute version. After four years of economic growth with eight million new private sector jobs, our unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been in more than five years. And with the economy speeding up, companies say they intend to hire more people this year. But while those at the top are doing better than ever, average wages have barely budged.

Barack Obama was in Wisconsin and Tennessee Thursday happy talking about "opportunity." He´s for it, by the way. "It´s good to be in Wisconsin," he told Wisconsin. Few hours later, "It´s good to be in Nashville." In both places he talked about the “opportunity” that comes with jobs and the “opportunity” that comes with education. As a word, "opportunity" polls well. Yet, these days whenever Obama has the opportunity to talk about his signature namesake "achievement," he rarely seizes the opportunity. The enterprising TV news video here shows why.

Barack Obama has never shown any great respect for ambassadors, a president´s hand-picked representative to another country. You´ll remember how shook up this president was over the 2012 murders of Amb. Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi; Obama flew off to Las Vegas fundraisers before the bodies were even cold. But two of Obama´s recent ambassadorial choices reveal the Democrat´s uber-political modus operandi—Max Baucus and George Tsunis.

President Obama gave another speech Tuesday night. It was the 93rd time a president has personally delivered a State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. And it sounded like it. Obama has looked as if he´s mailing it in recently. Not Tuesday night. He seemed genuinely involved and invested in his 7,000 words. Unfortunately for him and anyone who chose to listen to the whole 65 minutes, there wasn´t anything new or even much to invest any thought in. Ear candy for Obama lovers.

A survey arrived from the Obama crowd Monday. It asked what we most wanted to hear from the recovering smoker´s State of the Union address. That´s a trick, of course, to collect more emails and donations. The speech has been in the works for weeks with policies vetted by departments and key phrases poll-tested. It won´t surprise you after tonight that "income inequality" tested well. Our answer to what we most want to hear tonight is: “Thank you very much and may God bless America.” [Snip] This is all thanks to Woodrow Wilson.

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue.

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes. This is also the Administration´s justification for issuing new regulations governing

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

"I started with drugs around the same time that we all did, around 11,” Allman said. “I mean it´s just what you did, it´s just what everybody did.” He added that he started off using marijuana and ecstasy, then later began abusing harder drugs like heroin.
