Takes One to Tango
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/17/2013 5:09:56 AM

President Standoffish doesn’t want to be seen as a stiff. “Most people who know me know I’m a pretty friendly guy,” he protested at his White House press conference on Monday. “And I like a good party.” Maybe. But the president always seems to be dancing alone. And that was the vibe of his swan-song press conference for Act One of his presidency. His words were laced with an edge — churlish, chiding and self-pitying. He sardonically presented himself as Lonely Guy, shafted by the opposition, kicking around the White House on his own.

Seriously, Maureen, just because His Majesty won´t have a steamy affair with you doesn´t mean you have to start doubting His miraculousness.

I´m sorry, but remarks like "I like a good party," etc., only confirm for me that this guy is a total goof and socially completely inept. Pathetic. What we see on a daily basis from his WH is overcompensation for his lack of social skills and his barren intellect.

Who could possibly care what this embittered old spinster thinks? She´s totally alone and very unhappy. But she helped lead the charge for "women´s rights"! Turns out men need women and women need men. But it´s the NYT so you can´t speak the obvious or the truth.

The article seems pretty true and factual, at least as much as I could stomach. But then I immediately pegged 0bama as a cold fish, utterly without feelings for others, and possibly the fulfillment of a Bible prophecy.

And it’s true that Republicans have snubbed the president. John Boehner blew off Obama’s invites for six state dinners and Mitch McConnell skipped all but one.

If Maureen was lied to at least three times a day, would she invite the liar to dinner and buddy up to him?

The Republicans know that Obama lies incessantly, that he cannot be trusted. So what is the purpose of meeting with him? To elevate him? That´s what Obama wants -- to have the Republicans grovel at his feet and to believe every pearl dropping from his lips.

I don´t know about Maureen but, like the Republicans, I´d have nothing to do with someone who lies to me.

I believe #12 has posted the reason why my sympathy bank has been seriously depleted in regards to NY, NJ and their problems right now. They still can´t see how elections have consequences, for themselves and the rest of the country.

President Fingerman only cares about himself and that is why nobody wants to play with a manchild.

Maureen isn´t the only one that has noticed. The WaPo wasn´t particularly happy either. It´s been over 30 years since I suscribed to the WaPo and I have to say that I sure don´t miss it. Forget the NYT. I would hope that Sandy survivors are beginning to figure it all out and that Chris Christie is having to restore NJ without FEMA money because they don´t seem to have any of it either. Let´s not forget the raise in taxes for the "rich" either. Many Americans are finding out that they must be rich. Who knew?

Obama is starting out his new term with so much discontent around the country. Much more than when he started. The inauguration doesn´t seem to be the big deal it was 4 years ago. I know I´ll be washing my sox that day so will not be able to tune in for the festivities. This fraud was eleted not by choice but by fraud. It´s fraudulent all the way around. And ´fraud´ is the nicest word I can use to refer to him.

Every year or so MoDo gets one nearly right. Fauxbama is standoffish because he doesn´t know how to do anything but campaign. He approaches every crisis or issue as a campaign challenge. Then he goes out and pontificates (often contradicting himself utterly). Get with the program, MoDo. Wake up and smell the Starbucks. This guy is a loser and he´s wrecking the country.

Just like someone who might become radioactive at work, school, etc he´s getting a nice dose of the repurcussions.
He´s definitely reached the point where someone would feel uncomfortable in the same room with him.

MoDo is still living in fantasy land, and I don´t see much cure for an epiphany anytime soon.
The guy is in way over his head, which has been obvious to non-koolaid drinkers for years!

His narcissism really makes him sound unhinged.
e.g. What adult says things like this out LOUD?
"I’ll be probably calling around, looking for somebody to play cards with me or something, because I’m getting kind of lonely in this big house."

Old news to me. From the very first time I saw this creep we call President, speaking at the Democrat Convention in 2000, I was horrified. Biden´s remarks about "A negro who can speak intelligently" should have tipped people off as to the reason for the sudden rush to get Øbama deified and on the fast track to the white house. No substance, all show and tricks. Now, the low infos have elected him and the libtards are slowly beginning to awaken to the nightmare they have brought on our country by doing so. It´s a perfect storm this nation will pay dearly for.

The reason that he´s standoffish is that he can´t let anyone get close enough to see how very little ´there´ is there. Remember that interview in 2007 or so when Michelle said of his maybe running for higher office that he ´hasn´t done anything yet´ and had nothing to run on?

The Democrats still whine about Bush like it hasn´t gotten 10 times worse since he left. We have a low-IQ President who talks like he came out of the hood. No wonder he gets no respect in Congress. He thinks his trash-talking snarky remarks about Republicans can take the place of any real accomplishment on his part.

# 2 and # 7 are spot on.
No Republican would ever get away with
Obama´s terrible grammar- which is helpfully edited by the media in their official transcripts .
Nor would they get away with the constant use of " getting stuff done "
or " doing stuff " to explain official policy.
Obama´s public incoherence , sibilance problem
and stuttering ah..eh..is ignored.
His constant use of the word " folks " is
shorthand for " white folks " a group he freely admitted
in Dreams of distrusting , disliking and manipulating.
When Obama posed with the children yesterday and tried to hug them,
it was one of his most awkward public displays
of pretend affection.
The photos were just cringe inducing.
In fact , Obama never looks comfortable and normal
when he´s photographed with his wife and children.
It´s like he´s with mannequins.
The only time he ever looks happy and relaxed and
shows normal emotion is when he´s with Reggie Love.
The White House made Reggie vamoose
because many citizens were getting wise to the
obvious affection between the two men.

I don´t know about you, friends, but I have found it difficult to find words strong enough to describe this dangerous threat to our world. He is a disease, a traitor, a liar, a stooge, a saboteur, a communist, a thief, a homosexual gayboy, an actor, an anti-Christ, not necessarily the anti-Christ, and I´m just getting warmed up.
He is a tool of a secret cabal, determined to break the sovereignty of the free people in America. He is in the loop, but like Ambassador Chris Stevens, he may be disposed of in order to further the aims of the elite. That being said, his death would dusturb his childish followers like no LA riots in the past. If they were looking for a trigger to bring on chaos and permanent martial law, his time and theirs might be shorter than we think.

#32 is correct. We have serious problems, and it not just that we have a Manchurian president. There is a cabal behind him, one with specific goals for our people, our country and the world.
They already have huge powers, and those powers are only growing. It has been said above, but the election was fraudlent. Polls quoted above are fraudulent. 2010 showed the democrats what will happen if they don´t interfere, and they will not tolerate it. It is going to take organization on our part, and when that happens, we will suddenly have a "reason" for 0 to use his newly stolen powers to stop the Internet. Serious, serious problems.

Do yourself a favor and don´t read the comments.

As the NYT has lost readership, the ones left are part of a negative selection that is made up of 0bama sycophants.

One doofus called 0bama "the adult in the room" when there are negotiations with Republicans!

I gathered that MoDo is just blowing smoke and continuing the 0bama support in a more muted manner.

It is three decades since Princess Diana, with a single stroke of fashion genius, took a former colony captive. In Melbourne in 1988, she paired an off-the-shoulder gown of glimmering turquoise with a strap of art-deco emeralds worn not as a choker – but as a bandeau across her forehead. She did so, it is said, because she had sunburn on her back. Nonetheless, the iconic image of stylish, youthful, modern Monarchy made global headlines and bewitched a generation of Australians who went on to vote ‘No’ in an independence referendum in 1999.

On March 21, 2012, NBC led the nightly news with reporting about the Trayvon Martin case. CBS led with a report that the NFL was imposing unprecedented sanctions on a team for a scheme that involved paying athletes to injure opponents. It was a slow news day, and the Big Three newscasts had to choose unconventional leads. But ABC’s lead on World News was, even in that context, unlikely. It was news the network had played an integral role in creating: The program’s aggressive coverage of an obscure food product was yielding results, and Diane Sawyer announced that some of America’s

While the woman was able to escape, Elliot remains at large. There’s no word on how he was able to escape from custody. Michigan State Police Lt.

Austrian actor Maximilian Schell, who won the best actor Oscar in the early 1960s for his portrayal of a defense attorney in the drama "Judgment at Nuremberg," has died. He was 83. Schell´s agent Patricia Baumbauer said Saturday that Schell died overnight at a hospital in Innsbruck following a "sudden and serious illness," the Austria Press Agency reported. The Vienna-born Schell won his Oscar in 1961 and later was honored with further Oscar nominations — in the best actor category for "The Man in the Glass Booth" in 1975, and for best supporting actor in "Julia" in 1977.

Remember how liberals pounced on Chick-Fil-A’s owner/president for saying more or less what Barack Obama said in his 2008 campaign for president? That marriage was between a man and a woman? Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block the chain from coming to Beantown. Gotham’s then-City Council speaker, Christine Quinn, demanded Chick-Fil-A’s one New York store be sent packing. Well, this week Chick-Fil-A values were back in the news. When the deep South was paralyzed by snow that stranded motorists for hours and forced others to abandon cars, Chick-Fil-A moved in. In

President Barack Obama sat down with Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly for a pre-Super Bowl interview, a reprise of the Q&A the two did before the 2011 game, and Obama’s sixth straight pre-Super Bowl interview. O’Reilly grilled Obama on why Kathleen Sebelius had not been fired, noting that he as a taxpayer was paying her salary, and also asked if Obama thought the “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” claim was his “biggest mistake?” Obama responded to both queries by arguing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was an ongoing process, and he was committed to

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

We´ve had the Gaymmys; we´ve had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It´s not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved. Is that so wrong?" What we

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page. Another commented, "Screwed up a

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is getting some time in front of the cameras before sitting down to watch the Super Bowl. He´s doing a live interview from the White House with Bill O´Reilly about two hours before kickoff, during the Fox pregame show. The interview comes less than a week after Obama´s State of the Union address, in which he pledged to act to help the middle class if Congress won´t. Obama declined during a recent CNN interview to choose between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks in the title game, saying he didn´t want to offend either city. The White House

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin issued a backhanded compliment to Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan on Friday, commending her most recent column while at the same time faulting her for taking so long to come around. "Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ´08?" Palin wrote. "You joined the ´cool kids´ in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we ´sit down and shut up.´ Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..." Palin was presumably referring to Noonan´s

Former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters, one of the more prominent celebrity faces of the boycott Israel movement, says he has contacted Scarlett Johansson “a couple of times” over the A-list actress’s decision to represent an Israeli company that operates in a West Bank settlement ... “In the past days I have written privately to Neil Young (once) and to Scarlett Johanson (a couple of times). Those letters will remain private,” he said. “Sadly, I have received no reply from either ..."

The Gray Lady, America’s Paper of Record, where readers turn to find “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” has gone off the deep end.Last Friday, the paper published a huge story. “Christie Knew About Bridge Lane Closings, Port Authority Official Says,” the headline screamed.Huge. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, during a two-hour press conference weeks ago, had repeatedly insisted that he knew nothing about lane closures on a bridge leading into New York City, after allegations emerged that the lanes were shut down to punish a mayor who failed to endorse the governor’s re-election bid. Now, The Times said,

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only

Desperate to distract from the ongoing Obamacare disaster, alleged marital discord between Barack and Michelle Obama is being strategically leaked by White House insiders, and beginning to break into the mainstream media via familiar channels.(snip)Low information voters (aka, the Obama base) will lap this up. The marital strife can be blamed on those mean right wingers, while the aging-gracefully president and his mate work to overcome the many obstacles facing them as they sacrifice their health and welfare for a grateful nation. Hey, it beats devoting space to Obamacare victims.
