Obama’s Second Term
Already Looks Like a Failure

Bloomberg News, by Ramesh Ponnuru

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 4/15/2013 7:53:06 PM

President Barack Obama’s second term has so far been a story of high liberal hopes and scant liberal achievements. The president has been re-elected, demographic trends favor the growth of his coalition, his party has a technological edge, and his opposition is confused and divided. One might therefore expect Obama to be enacting the legislative agenda of that rising coalition. Yet the White House has to be disappointed, whatever it says, by the way the second term has been going.

You want to see failure? Wait until after the Democrats get butchered in the 2014 midterms.

The democrats are just in a little less of a state of Charlie Foxtrot than the republicans but they are way ahead in corruption. That should keep them above water for a few more months until the ugly insides of obamacare are widely revealed.

Yes, Obama is NOT a divider, he is a healer. He brings the parties together to get the work done for the betterment of mankind. He is an orator of great skill who will charm the waters into receding and the climate into changing for the better. /sarcasm off

begin puke/

With a divided congress, it requires compromise from all involved. So far, I´ve heard the democrats call for compromise, but offer none.

The Republicans have enabled Obama every step of the way by having NO strategy to stop him. They can´t agree much less comminate their ideas. The people make it crystal clear what they think about issues like fiscal responsibility, gay marriage and gun control and still some Republicans will go against the will of the people for political gain. Obama is a failure, for sure, but the Republicans are giving him a run for his money. They are too stubborn to admit that the people want principled conservative government because they live with the failed policies of the progressive right and left. Buy a clue, John Boehner, and unite your party with ideas that work even if they aren´t yours. Channel the will of Margaret Thatcher and you may save this country.

Huge failure. We just drove down and back the East Coast to the tip of Florida. Everywhere along the sides of the highways, we saw empty store fronts, For Sale signs everywhere, Foreclosure signs, mega-warehouses with row after row of empty trailers filling the parking lots, with no activity around the warehouses seen anywhere. Get with it, folks. The evening propaganda is spewing lies. This country is in w-a-y deeper doo doo than they are telling us.

Ramesh, like Fred Barnes and others is looking at this through a traditional civics framework, with all the arcane ins and outs of the House and Senate processes well described. While he may find what he sees encouraging, I think VDH´S article posted today (1984 + 29) tells the more accurate - and grim story. Obama by his own twisted lights has been very successful.

Ramesh Ponnuru, author of this Obama questioning summary, is a semantic slob. Take the time, re-read his words and substitute each word "liberal" or "progressive", in exchange for the word "socialist". Try it, see how much better it sounds! Face it, Obamaou IS a socialist. And if Ldotter friends are still calling the destroyers of this nation the pleasant name of "liberal", hey, it´s time to wake up. Nobody ever called Hitler or Stalin by the lovely names of "liberal" or "progressive". Of course not. So, why consider, even for one careless moment, calling any brutal Schumer, Reid, Puglosi, Feinstein, Obama, destroyers of freedom, by these nice names, when they IRS communize our medical institutions? Who’s kidding who? Replace the words with “socialist”, and Ponnuru’s article sounds completely different. Try it. Ramesh is a model of the same Republican confusion he accurately describes in his writing. The otherwise brilliant, Ann Coulter, does the same damn thing. When we asked her in a larger crowd of conservatives, why she uses the word “liberal”, when she really means socialist, totalitarian, statist, etc, she had the dismaying honesty to tell all of us that she is trying to ruin the word “liberal”. Can you believe? Our founding forefathers were classic liberals (it means freedom). Ayn Rand, Hayek, Milton Friedman, Tom Sowell, Walter Williams are ALL true liberals. Time to wake up and win the semantic war.

There´s an obvious, needed, tag to the above
Two reasons that even good people call these

(1) indoctrination, habit formed in school
(2) fear, afraid to call them all the bad

All those leeches, drones and other no-goodnicks, including (but not limited to) government employees, union leaders, welfare recipients, illegals, need to understand that whatever riches we amassed (just kidding: house, car and some money in the bank) came not from plucking from the tree but from the hard work and enterprising skills of the people who came here from Europe (whites, by the way) and organized free society. Unlike 57 countries South of the border (obozo and I know this number for sure), where people build corrupt structures like their mothers: Spain and Portugal.
And give it to Pinochet – Chile has per capita GDP $14.3K, but Cuba (suck it up michael more) $6K.
So, it is better to acknowledge that! Otherwise, team obozo will turn America into something similar to South Africa or Zimbabwe. Let’s not let those leftist racists do that!

The only way that dims comprise is really very simple. They tell Pubies to just give them what they want and we´ll call it bipartisan and everyone will be happy.

In recent months, I´ve read a lot about how the Republican party is in a state of confusion. Well, I contribute that to there being so many RINO´s having control of so much of the party. And just the other day, I saw an article (can´t remember where) that was about the National Republican Party want MORE control of the selection of presidential candidates and less to the states. I guess it´s a return of the smoke filled back rooms. When the political control of any party is taken away from the people that it relies on, then the party is doomed to continuous failure. You can´t shovel excrement without a crew willing to do it.

Almost immediately people start getting out their cell phones and capturing the shirtless showdown including the person who captured this video you´re watching.

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
