Obama’s Fault
New York Times, by Bill Keller

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/4/2013 8:20:51 AM

Our feckless leaders may be incapable of passing a budget, but, boy, can they pass the buck. The White House spent last week in full campaign hysteria, blitzing online followers with the message that heartless Republicans are prepared to transform America into “Les Misérables” in order to protect “millionaires and billionaires, oil companies, vacation homes, and private jet owners.” Republicans retort that the budget-cutting Doomsday device called sequester was actually invented by the White House. In fact, the conceptual paternity of sequester was bipartisan. Both sides agreed that Congress should set in

Comments:
Keller takes his usual jabs at the Republicans, but I find it surprising he really bashes 0bama also. I´m always skeptical of articles like this because I wonder what the ulterior motive is, even though it´s a departure from their usual adoration of 0bama.

So Keller got out of the wrong side of the bed. A stopped clock is right twice a day.

The Air Force planes used for personal trips by Obama, the Mooch, Panetta, Holder, Pelosi, Mueller and our other budget conscious leaders are not to be included in the slur, "private jets". Nor are the "vacation homes" owned by wealthy Obama supporters like Tiger Woods and the Aspen couple where the Mooch stayed in February. And surely, Hollywood celebrities and billionaires such as Warren Buffet are not to be viewed as being part of the heartless "millionaires and billionaires" constantly vilified by Obama.

No, the class, race and gender bile that spews from Obama and his worshippers are meant only for the Anne and Mitt Romneys of America. The Romneys and their kind are the reason Obama is having to fight so hard for us. For it is Romney and the thousands like him who have replaced Bush at the epicenter of the forces opposing Obama. Obama must prevail, and the ill-gotten success of these people must be reduced if not eliminated. Viva, Obama!

As soon as I realized this merely another "everybody´s guilty" cop-out I stopped reading. Keller simply cannot bring himself to say "The Republian are right...sequester WAS Obama´s idea."

Just a minor point, but - the democrats went after rich people in 1990, or thereabouts, and President George H.W. Bush agreed to a ´luxury tax on some items, including yachts.
What was the impact of that? It nearly killed the yacht building businesses in the U.S., causing alot of highly skilled workers to be laid off. (Economists call that an ´externality´ - an unanticpated result caused by a particular action.)
The symbolic gestures coming from this White House are absurd. Same with the democrats in the legislature.

The media is just as arrogant as the bamster...

They really think WE care what they think....

WE the people know exactly what´s going on. Our prez in a lying sack of ----.

After watching President Romney and First Lady Ann on the Fox channel -- my heart crys for what might have been -- if the poll/watchers hadn´t played with the numbers. I will never admit that the demorats took this election fairly. What a couple and what great kids and grandkids....

America´s loss......

Despite the headline, there´s the usual invective against ´Republican zealots´ and their ´blackmail.´

But who is openly committing blackmail with threats regarding illegal alien inmate release and Fisher Price cuts (my term for anyone with a Fisher Price figure such as teachers, firemen, policemen and EMTs)?

Keller´s indictment is a mile wide and an inch deep. If he were truly curious about the spending/deficit/debt problem, he would be examining how we took on trillion dollar deficits in the midst of a financial emergency and subsequently adopted them as a routine fiscal policy. The democrats have never had to argue for trillion dollar deficits as part of an annual budget process...they sure didn´t let the banking crisis go to waste! But the emergency has passed and the federal budget needs to reflect that. This is why Reid will not follow the law and pass a budget. His intransigence is why we all wind up at sequester.

FTA: But if you care about the long-term health of the country, the president has more to answer for than just inventing a particular type of fiscal time bomb. The large mess we are in is in no small part the result of missed opportunities and political miscalculation at 1600 Pennsylvania.

Thanks to this article I just learned about the Noam Scheiber book. I love the title which I think we need to use for Zippy and Dems. “The Escape Artists". The second part of that title is "How Obama’s Team Fumbled the Recovery”. I do wish people in the media and elsewhere would stop talking about the "recovery". There hasn´t been a "recovery".

After 9/11/2001, when things looked so bad for the economy, the stock market, and just life in general, Bush and his team worked hard and we did, through his leadership, have a recovery. Barry,OTOH, has sent us into a near depression.

Agreed LZK. We needed a man with Romney´s skills at this particular time in our history. I also ache at what could have been.

On the brighter side, Mitt is also aching to be in the problem solving mix. I´d not be surprised to see Mitt as Budget Director in the next White House, where he could give a strong (and vocal) assist to Rubio, Paul, Cruz or whomever is saddled with the problem in ´16. Mitt wouldn´t be given a chance in ´16, but those Romney´s are a youthful bunch, so he could be a factor again in 10 years.

What #8 said. The comments to the Keller article demonstrate all too vividly that the only thing the modern Democrat cares about is blaming the Republicans. If taxes are too high, it´s that the Republicans are protecting The Rich (tm) at the expense of The Poor. If spending is too high, well, spending is never too high, so move on, people. If Ambassador Stevens is murdered by terrorists, it´s the fault of a Republican video, or that the Republicans cut funds for Embassy security. If it´s too hot, it´s the Republicans´ fault for causing global warming. If it´s too cold, it´s the Republicans´ fault for causing global climate change. I could go on and on, and why not? They do...

Let´s ask them to make a vow of poverty. Let´s see them live like the plebians they and all marxists claim to love. They need to be called out on their hypocrisy, every day, all day.

As others say here, Keller is Keller is a Dem/Leftie.

He and his ilk are not rethinking their political ideology. Therein is the crux of the problem.

Thanks for the heads up #8. The comments are revealing. Think ahead til January 2014 and those Dems are going to be paying premiums for Obama Care. First you will find readers suggesting that you can sign up only when you get sick. Then you are going to see people talking about notices that the subsidies count as taxable income. By election time there will a LOT of moaning going on the Democrat camp.

I did manage to get through the entire article, but I had to have a barff bag handy. I nearly lost it when Keller said how great the stimulus had worked. And his mention that the two programs that are going to go completely bankrupt in the next few years, Medicare and Social Security, are not to be touched for ANY reason. This jassack can´t even ask the simpole question of where is the money going to come from? With unemployment rising, that means a lot less people available to pay taxes, so I ask again, where is the money going to come from? Oh, I know. Just raise taxes on the rich!

The HOUSE nees to pass a mandatory spending referendum. It must define what is in the budget and what it was to be spent for. The House Owns the entire budget process. Can not they redefine what the money in past bills was allocated for that the President signed?

Now the President wants to control the entire budget and spend it his way. The house needs to counter that and force it to the SCOTUS for a ruling. There is NO WAY the President should be reallocating money voted for/signed for another purpose.

There is no need not to furlough air traffic controllers or any other critical, mission essential federal agency personnel. There are plenty of useless "management analysts" and "program analysts" to furlough - actually - just get rid of these positions and people. These positions are nothing but federal govt welfare for certain people who live in or near by Washington, DC. Actually, these people, if they didn´t have access to good paying, but useless govt jobs by virtue of where they live - would be lucky to be a greeter at a Walmart.

As for the Romneys - good and decent folks and even though he lost, Mitt and Ann are the paragons of grace where as the winners, the Obamas are anything but...

I would like to believe that some of obama´s boot-polishers have suddenly figured out where their manhood is located but common sense tells me that they are simply in the middle of a dilemma, not being able to spin current White House performance in any positive way whatsoever.

Keller define´s obama´s failures as "missed opportunities" when obama is so inept he doesn´t even realize that he had opportunities. With him it´s a constant childish game of "I Won" and he hasn´t a clue how to win his way out of the mess that he has created. Republicans are being blamed for stonewalling, something they should have done far more freqently since 2008. Then there would have been no sequester at all, just a series of needed cuts in wasteful spending.

Let me introduce the premise: I am 68, came to America 20 years ago from the USSR. The point of this intro is that all my life I was asking this question: why if the person in power has several choices to accomplish something, this person usually does something to inflict the worst possible pain to the majority of the people? This was in the USSR when officials were controlling all aspects of our lives to leave us with poor housing, bad and little food, absolutely horrible healthcare, etc...
In the last 5-6 years I see the distinct signs of this in America.
My answer to the question why government officials do it that way is that they are sick sadists. It is not enough for them just to be powerful and corrupt. They have sick sadist agenda in their blood. And they vet the people for their cabal like gangster do their initiations.
I have no other explanation!

The comments on the article are revealing about the gulf of opinion from here to there. Mayor Bloomberg said that the amount of money is infinite. This seems to be the general attitude. People who depend on the government should always get their increase each year, never mind that the people who earn the money for it are getting real cuts every year. There should always be enough money for everything we want to do. Take off all spending restrictions and Obama can pay for everything with platinum trillion dollar coins including supporting the other half of the population when they too become dependent on the government. No need to motivate anyone to work or produce etc. Liberalism is the stubborn refusal to grow up and accept responsibility as an adult! Libs in the comments condemn Keller for straying from Krugmans teachings!

The Republicans should attach a specification of how spending is to be handled when we bump up against the debt limit to the next increase that they provide for the debt limit. Next they should hold zero based budget hearings on 1/2 of the budget and attach the next increase in the debt limit to this budget. Handle the other half of our budget the next year. If the Senate refuses to go along or Obama vetoes then there will be no increase in the debt limit. Obama won´t be able to use this to destroy the country because there will be a law that specifies what will be payed and what won´t from the current government income.

Agree #6 nails a lot of it for us!

#17, agree Mitt & Co are youthful, and I´m a fan of his.
Doubt he could do it again in ten years.

Mitt was 65 during the 2012 cycle, and next time in 2016 thus will be 69.
That´s the age of Reagan in 1980.

I favor Mitt in 2016. He´s the best available. Maturity and experience count.

In ten years, at 75, even if still more youthful than most, neither he nor Ann
would necessarily want to jump back in the fray at that point in their lives.
They have too much else to live for.

But we never know what the state of national affairs might be by then, either.
Mitt is probably the cleanest and maybe the smartest guy ever nominated. We need him.

Sometimes newspapers like the New York Times can be so biased toward liberal politicians that they actually end up
hurting them.

For example, over the weekend Mayor Bloomberg and Chuckie Schumer were booed during a parade in Queens by angry victims of Hurricane Sandy who had not yet received adequate government clean-up help.

Mayor Bloomberg and Senator Chuckie were surprised by the reaction and soon beat a quick retreat into their limosines and escaped.

Of course they were surprised. The New York Times and other liberal MSM outlets have done everything possible to keep the poor post-Sandy response of FEMA and other government agencies out of the news in order to protect Obama, just as they did everything possible during Hurricane Katrina to hurt George Bush.

But that left Mayor Bloomberg and Chuckie Schumer too uninformed to know the anger they would be greeted with at the parade. And how is Chuckie supposed to campaign in Queens now that everyone is mad at him?

He lacks real knowledge of anything outside the privileged elitist life he has lead and the ridiculously liberal institutions of ´learning´ he spent his developmental years in. He has no idea that there really are evil people, people intent on death and mayhem. He has no conception that his beloved islam is often perverted into a system of slavery and death. He is clueless and dangerous and the only people with less real world understanding than he, are the blind lemmings that voted for him.

It´s a game they are playing with us. Too many of them coming out. Clinton-Obama are puppets and only do what they are told as does the press via the new organization. It´s treason time.

this was all 100% predictable. Protect Obama so he´s in for the full 8 years and then, we´ll all act like "journalists." Keller and his ilk sicken me.

The Roots of CAIR’s
Intimidation Campaign
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/13/2014 10:12:32 PM     Post Reply
Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy. I compiled these names while watching Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, lead his panel’s proceedings Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Among the half-dozen Democrats who made the comparison: “What we’re about today brings us right back to the McCarthy era,” Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) said. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) accused Issa of “stripping away the constitutional rights of an American” in a way that “has not

DOJ says cross on California
war memorial should stay

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Isikoff joined NBC News in 2010 as a Washington, DC-based investigative correspondent, after 16 years with Newsweek. The news comes three months after fellow NBC News investigative reporter Lisa Myers left the network, and just two weeks after NBC hired Cynthia McFadden away from ABC, naming her senior legal and investigative correspondent. “Michael has done terrific work for NBC News on stories ranging from revealing which government official leaked the US Stuxnet virus attack

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of

Climate Change Gets Big-Budget

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview. Mr. Cameron, who became one of the most successful men in

A nine-month-old boy who appeared in Pakistan charged with attempting to murder police officers has been cleared, following a week-long police investigation. Baby Muhammad Mosa Khan was accused of being part of a ruthless gang of gas thieves who tried to kill police by hurling stones at them during a raid. Last week he was pictured at court in Lahore sitting on his grandfather´s lap, contentedly sucking on a bottle of milk as the charges against him were read out. A Pakistani lawyer said the judge announced the decision after Saturday´s court hearing during which police said it had dropped the charge

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
