Obama’s hunt for a legacy —
the politics of division

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 7/29/2013 7:39:25 AM

With his signature second-term agenda priorities — gun control and amnesty — all but dead, President Obama has once again begun to search for someone — anyone — to blame. See, none of this is his fault. Five years of sky-high unemployment, an out-of-control federal deficit, spending run amok, gas prices twice what they were in 2008: Not His Fault. Yes, he did promise to be the great savior of America (he even pledged that the sea levels would drop under his leadership, remember?),

Obama has an infantile mindset. Nothing is ever his fault. When you have never had to be responsible for anything you have ever done, it is easy to point fingers at someone else. It never occurs to you to look inward. He is a product of a society that justifies any behavior with psychobabble. There is no right or wrong, only cause and effect. He really is a pathetic adolescent who has been coddled his entire life. His legacy will be whatever he wants it to be because his is the only opinion that counts. He is blissfully ignorant of his true self and his lapdog media are ignorant as well.

IMHO obama plans to pull a clinton, that is allow the shut down of government if he does not get what he wants in the upcoming debt ceiling debate. Makes me wonder about the timing of the meal with PIAPS. His position will be tax increases on the rich, "investment" in communities that can impact 2014 and only God knows what all. He plans to lay this at the feet of Republicans, who need to get smart, start spending money NOW on national and local ads addressing positions on energy (cheap coal, Keystone), Business (less regulation), the EPA etc.

Just as the State-run Media was responsible for 15% of the Bamster vote in 2012, why can one not subtract that 15% from his approval rating now to find the real number? When you can see the flop sweat dripping from the teleprompter, you know the sanctimonious smugs are worried.

As many are realizing, he simply does not understand capitalism. He sees a fixed pie and wants to transfer pieces of it to his base. He has never understood that new discoveries, new inventions and entrepreneurship can expand the pie. The dims are both utopian and primitives. As to his legacy. . .it´s already in place. He´s an even worse president than Carter (and falling faster by the moment).

The Obama presidency is yet another iteration of the socialist Utopia experiment, which has failed spectacularly every time and everywhere else. And like all socialists before him, he is confused, and angered, and certain that someone somehow is responsible for sabotaging the experiment.

0bama´s legacy will be that he spent more than all the other presidents combined on his lavish and luxurious vacations for himself, his wife with very expensive wants, and his girls, not to mention, all Michelle´s family and freinds. Nothing is too good for this crowd. Right after their Million Dollar vacation to Africa, they are not planning yet another million dollar vacation to Martha´s Vineyard, and they are taking more than 70 servants with them. That´s a lot of people to serve 0bama and Michelle. Wow, what a legacy.

The most important thing about Obama´s legacy is to rewrite history. Whatever happens Obama wants his presidency to be remembered that he had the worst luck possible.

Obama wanted to change all these things but the GOP and world events beyond his control held him back.

I am daily dumbfounded by those who think that The Won "thinks" about anything. He figured out circa 1985 that he need not think, that all things Good "n" Plenty would come to him and his entourage, if he just plays the part. He is Nothing. He never was. Empty Vessel does not even begin to describe this joker.

Obama´s ´children´ on a rampage
Jewish World Review, by Alicia Colon    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 4/1/2014 8:41:49 AM     Post Reply
After Travon Martin was killed, President Obama interjected himself into the controversy by saying, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." His critics picked up with that statement and use it to refer to any criminal incident involving black youths. The mainstream media, ever-supportive of Obama, neglects to publicize any such event and only local newspapers are reporting the increasing meaningless and violent attacks against white victims. It may be unfair to equate these miscreants as children of Obama, who does have two lovely daughters, but he has only himself to blame for ignoring the harm his

I don’t get all the claims of radical environmentalism in Noah. I saw it last night. I did not draw out of it the environmentalism. In the movie, Noah took the position that all mankind had corrupted the earth with sin and God intended to wipe them all out. Noah presumed God would wipe him and his family out too once all the animals were saved. Sure, Noah was a vegetarian and the bad guys are meat eaters who do to the earth what Saruman did, but I don’t really see the whacked out radical environmentalism. It’s more thematic of

The mainstream media ignored the horrific abortion case, and a giant fundraiser has tried at the last minute to censor the movie about Kermit Gosnell, but a project to bring the story to theaters next year is moving ahead this weekend with a public campaign to raise $2.1 million.“I think Americans will step up,” filmmaker Phelim McAleer told Secrets about "Gosnell."

VA Hides Names of Hospitals

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) blocked the release of the names of hospitals where 19 veterans died because of delays in medical screenings, leading to calls for transparency from news outlets and a bipartisan group of Capitol Hill lawmakers.Earlier this month, the VA denied a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from Tampa Tribune reporter Howard Altman, who had been investigating the deaths. CNN reported in January that 19 veterans died as a result of delayed gastrointestinal cancer screenings, while another 63 were seriously injured. CNN obtained internal documents from the VA listing the number of “institutional disclosures of adverse

Attorney General Eric Holder said Friday that the federal government will recognize about 300 same-sex marriages performed in Michigan before a federal appeals court halted them, despite a decision by Michigan´s governor not to recognize those unions. The decision means federal benefits will be extended to those couples -- including the ability to file taxes jointly, get Social Security benefits for spouses and request legal immigration status for partners. "These families will be eligible for all relevant federal benefits on the same terms as other same-sex marriages," Holder said in a statement.

Leland Yee, a Democratic state senator and candidate for secretary of state in California, has been a longtime champion of gun control. This week he was arrested on numerous charges, including conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and conspiracy to illegally transport firearms. Yee, a prominent foe of assault weapons, allegedly took bribes to set up a meeting between an undercover agent and an international arms dealer to broker the sale of automatic weapons and shoulder-fired missiles. A lengthy FBI affidavit also describes Yee’s ties to a Chinese triad and his desire to help out Islamist militants. In short, the

The city’s public schools are in the grip of a suicide epidemic.

We cannot allow those,” she told 250 new principals at Stuyvesant HS during a private meeting. “I get those e-mails all the time.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

The conventional wisdom -- that Democrats will probably lose the Senate this fall -- is now hardening into cement. Even Democratic pundits are falling into line. We all know that politics is a never-ending spin cycle in which commentators cast their own side in the most favorable light. That helps explain why some conservatives insisted up to Election Day that Mitt Romney was going to send Barack Obama packing. It´s still early for definitive pronouncements about whether Republicans will pick up the six seats they need to make Mitch McConnell majority leader. However nationalized the election, these are a series of local

The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
