Today We Are Gathered …
To Hear More About Me

Slate, by Emily Yoffe

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/22/2012 10:49:00 PM

Someone needs to tell Barack Obama—it must get particularly confusing this time of year—that his own birth is not Year One, the date around which all other events are understood. His much-noted, self-referential tic was on cringe-worthy display Friday when the president gave his eulogy for the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, who served in Congress for half a century representing Obama’s birth state of Hawaii. Inouye was a Japanese-American war hero (he lost an arm in World War II, destroying his dream of becoming a surgeon), and as a senator he served on the Watergate committee,

Comments:
Emily, employed by leftist Slate, sears The Won with her acid prose..."a bizarre twirl around his own personal Kodak carousel".

He deserves that and more. A stunningly tone deaf performance. In his mind he is The Only.

I only read it once before I posted, but I don´t believe Emily caught the bit about his watching the Watergate hearings the summer he was 11 years old. (And he has told us many times that that bus odyssey with Grandma et al was when he was 11. That would have been 1972.

The Watergate hearings were first televised on May 17, 1973.

ME, it´s all about ME.
you, it was supposed to be all about you.
But it is ME. In the end it is all about ME.

A gigantic raspberry to the 53% of the voters in this last election, and a giant Fickle Finger of Fate to all Blue State idiots, for foisting upon our nation four more years of the worst president in our history. Nixon looks positively trustworthy, and Carter and eminent statesman next to this imbecilic narcissist.

Good job Emily, wow. This was shocking. A courageous man who would have given his own life for his comrades reduced to an anecdote on the Obama family vacation. It´s sickening, but the sad part is it´s not unexpected anymore.

If Democrats are bothered by candidates lacking in personal integrity, why do they keep electing and glorifying them? and why do they keep demonizing just those opponents who are strongest in character?

They are only bothered when it shows too much, as that makes fooling the people harder.

It´s good to know that some of the blind can be made to see again, but many of us had president dillweed nailed four years ago. The speech in Berlin, the Greek columns, the over-the-top party in Chicago. It´s nothing but nauseating memories now. This clown should have never seen the inside of the White House. He embarrasses us continually before the entire world.

Obama is more suited to be an emperor in Ancient Rome. In fact, I am not sure but he may be the reincarnation of Nero. One thing is certain, he shames this country by his very presence. He is the antithesis of any of our founding fathers and is unworthy of the office he holds.

#31 may be right on the birthday, but #27 is right to question that an 11 year old was glued to the TV watching Watergate hearings. Of course, there wasn´t much else on TV at the time, no MTV w hip-hop or rap, so maybe he happen to see some of it.

It is so hard to keep up with the facts because such effort is made to obscure the facts in his case. I thought he didn´t get back to Hawaii from Indonesia until he was 12, but maybe someone was rounding the numbers.

He knows how to talk to them, how to twitter them, how go give them phones so they can listen to him. Hitler had nothing on him. I think he must be following Hitler´s lead.

Why are we surprised? Just another day in the life of The Bamster.

Definition of narcissistic personality disorder..."The narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they´re superior to others and have little regard for other people´s feelings. But behind this mask of ulra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticisms."

The entire substance of the eulogy was based on a lie. He did NOT see the Watergate hearings on his vacation per his own words (well, Bill Ayers´ own words) in Dreams becaue of the year of his vacation. It was impossible for that to happen and it did not happen. He lied, yet again and it is ridiculously easy to prove he lied. It is amazing that it does not and will not ever matter to his worshipers, who now own the vote until the USA is no more. Ad hominems to all, and to all (especially the United States) a good night.

The article does not do the horrendous eulogy justice.
I found the actual text and had to double check
to make sure that it wasn´t from The Onion.
A sample - reads like a 5 year old wrote it.
"So we flew over the ocean, and with my mother and my grandmother and my sister, who at the time was two,
we traveled around the country.
It was a big trip. We went to Seattle, and we went to Disneyland — which was most important.
We traveled to Kansas where my grandmother´s family was from, and went to Chicago, and went to Yellowstone.
And we took Greyhound buses most of the time, and we rented cars, and we would stay at local motels or Howard Johnson´s.
And if there was a pool at one of these motels, even if it was just tiny, I would be very excited.
And the ice machine was exciting — and the vending machine, I was really excited about that. "

It was so jaw dropping that one ( not the media ) has to wonder if Obama is back on the crack pipe.
No Republican would ever get away with
behaving like this .
The polar opposite of Barry´s bizarre behavior
was former Senator Bob Dole.
89 year old Dole is apparently pretty much confined
to a wheelchair now.
When he got to the Capitol Rotunda to pay his respects ,
Dole walked to Inouye´s casket with the help of his wife
and another man.
Dole said he didn´t want Danny to see
him in a wheelchair .
Then Dole gave a smart salute with his left arm .

Barack Obama meets every single textbook definition of the psychological disorder known as "malignant narcissism."

The man is absolutely pathological, and in serious need of intensive psychological help.

It is not at all comforting to know that someone this seriously mentally ill holds power in the White House.

´Danny´ we hardly knew ye from your own funeral. But, we knew ye must have been someone important because we heard you influenced a little half black/half white boy, "who was born and raised in Hawaii", and he REALLY became someone important - even more important than you, Danny.

I can´t comment on anything the empty chair says. Every time he´s on the tv, I have to turn it off. Is it my imagination and dislike for this person that I feel he´s on a lot more times a day, week or year than any other president. Doesn´t he ever work?

Does Obama realize that the campaign is over? He seems to think it´s still on. Thus, everything has to be about him.

Perhaps victory has made the narcissist even more narcissistic. With such people, there´s no such thing as boundaries. Everything - including a solemn funeral - has to be imbued with sense of self. I, I, I...me, me, me.

If the sickness of narcissism could be defined clinically, this creature we now have living in our White House is a living example of it.

Obama´s Funny or Die
video wasn´t an ‘interview’
Yahoo News, by Olivier Knox    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 3/20/2014 8:51:46 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama’s appearance on funnyordie.com’s parody show “Between Two Ferns,” where he took mock questions from comic Zach Galifianakis, was a lot of things: funny, unusual, an intriguing way to sell Obamacare and very popular. One thing it was not, though, was an “interview” — unless you’re White House press secretary Jay Carney. Carney was defending the administration’s aggressive campaign to get young people to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. (Snip)That’s some quality trolling of the media by Carney, a former Time magazine bureau chief.

All nine employees of TheSquareFoot.com in New York City have neat, clean desks—except one. Co-founder Jonathan Wasserstrum´s desk and the floor around it are strewed with paper, files, tech gear and old boxes. "I like being near my stuff rather than fishing for it in a cabinet somewhere," he says. Being near Mr. Wasserstrum´s stuff is harder for Justin Lee, the company´s other co-founder. At times, "some of his crud will spill over onto my desk," Mr. Lee says. Other co-workers at the online commercial real-estate leasing and brokerage company sometimes print new copies of documents to avoid handling food-smeared

BURBANK, Calif.—A 3-year-old boy who fell out of a third-story window in Burbank was saved by a quick-acting couple who threw a mattress out to break his fall. KABC-TV reports Konrad Lightner and his wife, Jennifer, were moving out of their apartment Sunday when they noticed the toddler and his sister throwing their toys out the window. When they saw the little boy throw his leg over the window sill, Konrad rushed to put the mattress down. He was able to break the child’s fall, placing him onto the mattress. The toddler was taken to a local hospital for evaluation,

14 of California´s 32 measles

California public health officials say 19 of the 32 cases of measles they have confirmed so far this year are in people who had not been vaccinated, and of that group, 14 were intentionally not vaccinated. As the number of measles cases continues to grow across the state — there were only three by this time last year — officials at the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) have urged parents against opting out of vaccinating their children. They say an increase in the number of people choosing not to vaccinate could drive a resurgence of the respiratory disease, since

In Eastern Europe, Biden

VILNIUS, Lithuania—Vice President Biden’s we’re-all-in-this together tour of Eastern Europe, a two-country stop that concludes here Wednesday, has highlighted not only the growing regional anxieties over Russia’s designs on Ukraine but also how much work the Obama administration has to do to convince allies of its support. At its core, Biden’s message here and in Poland was a simple reaffirmation of what one senior administration official called a “bedrock commitment”: The United States would honor NATO’s basic premise that if one member nation is attacked, all would come to its defense. (Snip)In some ways, the anxieties are the inevitable result

Another Biden gaffe

Vice President Biden misspoke on Tuesday, claiming he had led the fight for Poland to join NATO when he served as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Biden, whose tendancy toward gaffes is well known, served as chairman from 2001 to 2003; Poland joined NATO in 1999. “Fifteen years ago, I was honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland’s admission into NATO,” Biden said in Warsaw, Poland, on Tuesday during a visit to reassure allies as Russia moved to annex Crimea.(Snip) Former Sen. Jesse Helms had been chairman of the committee

SEVASTOPOL/MOSCOW--The United States warned Moscow it was on a "dark path" to isolation on Wednesday after Russian troops backed by unarmed volunteers stormed Ukraine´s naval headquarters in the Crimean port of Sevastopol and raised their flag. The dramatic seizure came as Russia and the West dug in for a long confrontation over Moscow´s annexation of Crimea, with the United States and Europe groping for ways to increase pressure on a defiant Russian President Vladimir Putin. "As long as Russia continues on this dark path, they will face increasing political and economic isolation," said U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, referring to reports of

The hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 took yet another maddening turn Tuesday as officials in Thailand revealed radar picked up a plane about the same time the jet disappeared. Speaking 11 days after the Boeing 777 vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, Royal Thai Air Force spokesman Montol Suchookorn said radar showed an unidentified aircraft tracking west toward the Strait of Malacca at 1:28 a.m. on March 8. Flight 370 stopped communicating with air-traffic controllers eight minutes earlier. Suchookorn said the Thai military doesn’t know if the plane on the radar was Flight 370. He said “we did

WASHINGTON — The first lady, Michelle Obama, is soon to lose her executive pastry chef, Bill Yosses. And she is partly to blame. She has piqued his interest in the relationship between food and health, he said in a recent telephone interview, so the man who made the Hawaiian chocolate-malted ganache for the White House state dinner for France is now headed to New York with an aim to teach children and adults about eating better. In the meantime, he has given up his usual breakfast doughnuts for a smoothie made with apple, kale, spinach and ginger — from time to

When the left finally cracks up, the few survivors will have a really good laugh. According to a Facebook post, Somali staffers that work at Minneapolis City Hall declared February 28 “Hijab Day” at City Hall and convinced the police chief and female city council reps to wear hijabs on the job. Pictures include: Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau (who recently married her favorite female sergeant – not very hijab like), city council members Elizabeth Glidden and Lisa Bender as well as other staffers.

In his ongoing investigation of fake EPA spy John Beale, Sen. David Vitter (R., La.) is increasingly focused on Beale´s role in leading a 1997 rewrite of federal rules on air quality. Beale not only forced a quick conclusion based on questionable data. He also pressured the Clinton Administration´s Office of Management and Budget to stop criticizing the new rules, known as the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Ozone and Particulate Matter. In a draft report, Sen. Vitter also places the Beale rules in context: "Since the 1997 standards were issued, EPA has steadfastly refused to facilitate independent

Paris Restricts Car Usage to Combat Smog

France will restrict auto use in Paris beginning Monday in an effort to reduce dangerous pollution levels in the country’s capital. Paris’ high number of private car drivers and France’s diesel subsidies make the city more susceptible to high levels of smog than other European capitals, and a recent week of a warm, sunny weather has made the air quality worse, Reuters reports. Paris has 147 micrograms of particulate matter per cubic meter of air, compared with 81 in Berlin and 79.7 in London. The plan being introduced Monday calls for drivers to only use their cars on alternate days

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

During her visit to China, first lady Michelle Obama pointed out that the ability to travel outside of the United States was "rare" but that she chose China for a reason. "It’s very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States, and it’s even more rare to have the opportunity to travel with three generations — with my daughters, and with my mother," she said. "And it is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China." Obama made her remarks while visiting a school in Beijing, with the Chinese first

Today’s Washington Post features an article by Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell. But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned

Obama said the California Democrat "will go down in history as one of the greatest speakers in our history" and indicated that he was eager to return her to her former position as Speaker of the House. "She is as tough and principled and as visionary as any member of Congress that we´ve ever seen and I´m grateful to call her a friend," he added. The fundraiser — the first of six Obama has

Though the AP managed to slip Scott´s name in the headline of the report, both news organizations seemed to agree: Scott´s death was newsworthy only because of her romantic association with a legendary rock and roller.

Let me go out on a limb: The Malaysian airliner did not get sucked into a black hole, vanish over the Indian Ocean equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle or crash-land on the spooky island from “Lost.” Those “theories” were actually discussed on CNN this week. Host Don Lemon dismissed them as “preposterous” before asking one of his assembled “expert” guests — there were six of them waiting expectantly in their boxes on the screen — whether, you know, such ideas really were so preposterous. At which point the nonstop coverage of this tragedy entered the Twilight Zone. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines
