Peggy Noonan: Obama Got To
Point Where People Stopped Listening To
Him Faster Than Most Presidents

Newbusters, by Noel Shepphard

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 7/29/2013 6:31:50 AM

"I think every president in the intense media environment we have now, certainly every two-term president, gets to a point where the American people stop listening, stop leaning forward hungrily for information. I think this president got there earlier than most presidents. And I think he´s in that time now."So said the Wall Street Journal´s Peggy Noonan on ABC´s This Week Sunday.

I stopped listening to him during his first campaign in 2008. As pResident he has been in our faces everyday seemingly all day long. Who wouldn´t be sick of seeing him on TV and tune him out?

Really have to wonder why Obama is having Hillary over for lunch.Obviously,there will be some form of deal cutting,the question is on what. There´s no way Obama can finish off this country in 3 more years without some huge radical move. He only has somewhere in the low 40´s support for his plans,schemes or whatever.

i would argue that Obama has wasted around $4 trillion since being in office with nothing to show for it. That counts stimulus,TARP and normal budget increases.

Obama claims TARP has been paid back but that would reduce the deficit.That money has been well laundered to points unknown.

Hey Peggy: Anyone with a brain and sense of America´s greatness never bought into Zippy the Magic Negro´s traitorous bilge long before his first election. Unlike you!

#2, Hillary went to the White House to ask Obama to hammer the Weiner campaign, which is equating the Weiner perversion scandals to those of the Clintons. The last thing Hillary wants is for Weiner to dredge up memories of Bill Clinton´s ugly behaviors.

Expect Weiner to be out of the race by Wednesday.

Remember the Reagan press corps, and how they used to bemoan the fact that he didn´t "grow" in office because he believed and said the same things as before he became president? We never hear that about Obama, who believes in the wrong things and who never learns from his mistakes.

So now Peggy tells us that Obama is a lot of hot air and it´s summer so who wants more hot air?

#9 I agree about Detroit. Glad I´m now totally out of the state of Michigan and the proximity I had to Detroit. The East side of the state sucks, except for the Birminghams, Novis, Bloomfield Hills etc. The West side of the state is the real Michigan. God bless Hope College in Holland and Grand Valley State in Grand Rapids.

#10 probably is right. Both Zippy and Hill know that the parents of the slain men in Benghazi are not going to let go of their loved ones by supporting a lie. I just pray the parents don´t get intimidated and let it drop. They must try to get the truth out - I´m pretty sure their sons would want that.

´´The case for Barack Obama, in broad strokes:
He has within him the possibility to change the direction and tone of American foreign policy, which need changing; his rise will serve as a practical rebuke to the past five years, which need rebuking; his victory would provide a fresh start in a nation in which a fresh start would come as a national relief. He climbed steep stairs, born off the continent with no father to guide, a dreamy, abandoning mother, mixed race, no connections. He rose with guts and gifts. He is steady, calm, and, in terms of the execution of his political ascent, still the primary and almost only area in which his executive abilities can be discerned, he shows good judgment in terms of whom to hire and consult, what steps to take and moves to make. We witnessed from him this year something unique in American politics: He took down a political machine without raising his voice.´´

Thanks to #29 for the killing quote from only days before Zero´s 2008 election. It amazes me that one of Reagan´s vaunted speechwriters could have been so credululous about this wholly destructive anti-American character, a Third Worlder at heart who sought to bring the USA down a few notches, allegedly for our own good, for the good of the world, since a price had to be paid for being the best country on earth.

It´s quaint for Peggy to be voicing her displeasure now after quaffing that Kool Aid by the gallon, when most of us could smell this phony from clear across the country long before he ascended the heights. She was wrong; we were right. Now she sidles up and tries to insinuate her whispery, mock serious self back into our good graces. Grow a brain, Peggy. There are people over here at this site who can outwrite and outthink you. Give it a rest.

I´ll not forget that Noonan sneered editorially at Sarah Palin in 2008, and she´s a little late on declaring the point that people are not listening to Stinky. (I tuned him out at the bitter-people-clinging-to-guns-and-religion remark.) Whether they´re listening to him or not, Stinky remains a dangerous man for my beloved country. Lethal.

Many thanks, #29, for your post! It serves as an ideal Exhibit A among these proceedings. Unlike the rest of us here in Realityville, Peggy Noonan didn’t have the easily peggable Obama pegged. She fell for his line, hook & sinker; perhaps even became aroused. Dare I say that? I already did. So, I guess I do.

When mysterious, evasive, double-talker BHO as much as said “My background is none of your beeswax,” that was evidence enough for me that the guy was a three dollar bill. All the while, Peggy was smitten. Makes ya wonder, don’t it? Yeah, it do!

I NEVER listened to him. It was obvious from the get-go that his campaign was a scam and that the Dems and press were determined to get him into office no matter what had to be done to get him there. And they weren´t doing it because he was a well-spoken black man. I can name several well-spoken black men they would spit on if they had the chance. Every one of them FAR more intelligent and far more charismatic than Obama, whom I see as neither.

I´ve had earplugs in ever since he rigged the first election against Jack Ryan

BTW - if Obama has such love for women´s rights, how come he outed Jeri Ryan (Star Trek) as a public sex toy in order to shame Jack Ryan into resigning?

Obama´s Handlers shoveled shame and innuendo and titillation onto Jeri Ryan by the bucket load.

That´s the way Democrats stand up for Women´s Rights.

I´ll always remember a round-table discussion Ms. Noonan was having with other elities in ´08 - think it was Memorial Day weekend for some reason - and someone around the table asked, "What are we going to do with Palin?", and Ms. Peggy replied, "Kill her and do it quickly." I was stunned - of course, she meant figuratively, but showed me how really nasty politics can be.

Dear Peggy:

He told us he hung out with radical feminists and communists yet we were wackos fir being concerned. He told us he was in a cloud in school and played with crack. He told us under his plan energy costs would necessarily skyrocket yet we must be wearing tin foil hats. He told us he believed the constitution was a set of negatives, he told us he wanted to spread the wealth, he voted for infanticide while his wife told us only he can heal our souls. So just when was it we started to listen?

You sold out a long time ago and I continue to be amazed that the WSJ prints the trash you crank out. Words that come to mind when your name appears are: supercilious, phony, liar, and opportunist.

She is hoist on her own petard, as another mostly phony writer, George Will, is wont to say.

Peggy likes to wave her nose in the air as she looks down it while commenting on the
Sunday shows about the little people and her bigness and self-importance.

What a Witch!
She´ll probably also endorse Hill-err-ee-ass Herself for the 2016 cycle.

She, along with millions of others, was taken in by the three-card monte dealer of politics.

I, too, thank you (sort of) #29 for posting that insipid, saccharine and childishly fawning quote from Noonan.

And as most here have said, the character of BO was evident from his first writings brought to light, or the first speech we heard, the first time we saw that arrogant chin jutting upward

Apparently Noonan really did think he could stop the ocean´s rise.

What a rotten shame the Useful Idiots (aka, "lo-fos") re-elected this noxious and destructive guy.

Texas mag sues New York
Times over new hire
New York Post, by Keith Kelly    Original Article

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network.The visit comes days after revelations surfaced that Sharpton worked with the FBI. The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev. Al about his “informant” role.Stahl: When you were in your 20s, you were an informant for the FBI.Sharpton: Sharpton: No, well it’s according to

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says. April is generally the worst month of allergy season,

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

Boston Marathon bomber: report

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race. On Tuesday — the day advocates have labelled “Equal Pay Day” to symbolize the amount of time women have to

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

It’s good Gov. Cuomo understands New York has a problem with cigarette smuggling. Too bad he has yet to figure out what’s really driving the problem of illegal smokes: our high tobacco taxes.Just days after a key report found New York has the highest percentage of illegal cigarettes of any state, the governor announced the creation of a new “strike force” meant to crack down.Teams from 13 state, local and federal agencies, he said, are joining to stop “the influx of counterfeit and untaxed tobacco products into New York” and nab smugglers who “evade the law and rob the state

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

´The debate over repealing this law is over´: Obama

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

Clinton docs: Lewinsky,

The Clinton Library took the wraps off another batch of White House documents Friday afternoon, offering new insights into how aides scrambled to address the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how the hot-button issue of race tied the White House staff up in knots and how former President Bill Clinton cast a wide net for advice in advance of his major speeches.The new set of Clinton documents make little mention of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and so are unlikely to have a major political impact. However, many of the memos were written by or mention aides to Bill Clinton who now hold

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
