Obama has surrendered. (Snip) The old omnipotent President Obama, able to make the seas fall, the child of the world uniquely equipped to build bridges everywhere, answerable only to himself, is gone. As America’s leader the old Obama handed Syria, Russia and Iran and huge victory. Gave it to them on a platter with his vaunting, invincible stupidity. In the process, not only has he shot America in the foot on the world stage but he will have emboldened the Ayatollahs to forge ahead with their nuclear ambitions. (Snip) He has also destroyed himself.
Comments: This pathetic character, this affirmative action hire, wont to sit scratching the side of his face ostentatiously with his middle finger, is now getting the finger back from all of America´s enemies and even her allies, who have learned better than to have anything further to do with this tiny, weak man: a mere voice on a stick. I would suggest that anyone who played a part in bringing him to power by voting for him owes the penance of sitting out the next few elections for the good of the nation and of the world. As the mullahs move
(continued) steadily toward the Bomb, Jimmy Carter´s feckless, foolish statecraft reverberates down through the decades. How long will it take for America to live down Obama? Or will his governance prove fatal to the nation?
Can the demon-faced abomination of affirmative action hire in the White House please take Senators Graham, McCain, and Kerry down with him? Those traitorous poseurs need to feel the full brunt of which side they ultimately chose to support. Tar and feathering should be brought back for these traitors, although its still too good for the slap back they deserve.
I really hope America can recover from the terrors of this administration. We must start freeing up our own energy resources to re start our industrial engine. I believe much of these ME shenanigans are due to a devilish alliance with Saudi Arabia to maintain their source of money and power as their oil reserves deplete, and to gain access to the Caspian sea oil potential.
To top it all off, we are officially one month away from the chaos of obamacare - maybe. I do not feel compelled in the least bit to follow any law created by this dillweed. When put to the test, he will also bow down before the American people.
Is it over? Hey! I did not get my Obama Phone! This is one of the most idiot led countries of the world. The latest fiasco puts Obie in the lead for the worst president ever! Impeach him for incopetence!

The world stage is not comprised of LoFo voters or sycophantic media. In this light Obama is revealed for the poser he is. The American public looked at the color of his skin and the content of his character and... voted (twice) for the color of his skin. Now we must find a way to survive three more years with a man ill-equipped to run even a lemonade stand. One can only pray this Syria fiasco compels Americans to see, think, and act clearly. Only then can we hope to recover from the domestic and international damage wrought by the Flim Flam man.
No, #5, Saudi Arabia is afraid of Iran and its ally, Syria, and wants American help in the region. They have called on all Arabs to support the Egyptian military and offered to give Egypt money if we cut Egypt off. They would be on our side if we had George W. Bush and so would the Brits.
He will not fail. The media will not allow him to. No matter what Obama does the media will hail it as groundbreaking and breath-takingly bold. I do not blame America´s first affirmative action president, or not even the incredibly naïve lofo voters. The blame for this idiocy lies squarely in the media lap, or lapdogs if you prefer.
WE didn´t vote for anybody. 69 million Democrats voted for this guy in 2008, and 66 million Democrats voted for this guy in 2012.
There are about 240 million American adults eligible to vote.
Remember those polls that keep coming up with the pitiful 35% who always support Democrat stuff? That´s them. They register. They vote. They put idiots into office.
The solution is to round up every last Republican voter possible, get them registered and get them to the polls!
Take over the gub´mnt and SEND THE DEMOCRATS A BILL FOR THEIR NONSENSE even if that will involve seizing all their property, selling the healthy ones abroad (there are ways), and dispatching their children to church operated creche operations where they may be raised up to be God Fearing even if otherwise unbelieving.
Diminished the presidency you say . . . try laughing stock of the world. Now he´s a coward looking for cover from the congress. That entire administration is lost in a thick fog without a compass or a map.
A year ago, Rush said we can survive four more years of Obama but what we cannot survive is four more years of the people who voted for Obama. My take is that those Obama voters are quickly diminishing.
That POS in the WH is an abstract example of the ´Peter Principle´, three times over. State Senator, US Senator and POTUS.
As Winston S Churchill said: “Never give up, Never give up, Never give up.”
PS: I believe in the Constitution and pray for Lee, Cruz and Levin!
PPS: I also believe in the American people to do the right thing after we´ve done all the wrong things! That´s from Winston also.....
We can recover from Obama. However, I don´t know if we can recover from the type of people who elected him...most of which would still vote for him. That would be the hard-line leftists and the low info voter.
Obama should have already been impeached for his unilateral attacks on Libya that helped to overthrow Khadafi. No one from Congress gave approval for the attacks on Libya. Look at the mess he left in Libya. Libya is not much more than a new Somalia, ruled by roving gangs of militias. One of the roving gangs put a torch to our CIA outpost in Benghazi and killed an American "ambassador" (CIA gunrunner) and several American heroes while Obama took his beauty sleep and gave the order to "stand down". He didn´t want to be bothered with saving American lives. He had a campaign fundraiser to attend the next morning. You don´t get much more despicable than that.
I beg your pardon. Was that my President in the Rose Garden? His teleprompter-scripted remarks overflowing with contrived, contorted, somber compassion for the victims of atrocities in Syria? And those annoying protesters, loudly, angrily chanting and shouting, being easily heard in the background? But, not to worry! He knew what the rest of his day held for him. It was a metaphor for his entire term in office: Get all those pesky duties and chores out of the way and then scamper off to a well-deserved 18-hole recreation break. You can’t make this stuff up.
When you hire someone with absolutely no experience, none, and put him in a position of high responsibility, you should not be surprised that things don´t turn out very well. It´s a combination of inertness, inexperience, duplicity and a very weak surrounding team. I pray every day that we can get through this without the country being weakened beyond repair.
BO is a creature of the media and H´weird and they have a big part in his sorry history in office.
Right now the writers of Roadrunner cartoons must be stage managing the show, as they clearly have Dear Reader doing the Wile E Coyote "if you don´t look down you don´t fall down" over the cliff edge thing, while the media, as ever, portrays him as the Acme of success.
As this sad cartoon unfolds, let us pray that a Putin-looking creature does not get to do anything with "thwap" in it.
Two visual impressions I got out of yesterday´s dog and pony show on Pennsylvania Ave. First is the Photo of the Won standing wih his foot on OUR desk with his lap dog Biden sitting in awe. Second is his retreat to the first tee at North Fort Belvior golf course. Disrupting play by the military members while showing his contempt for their lives by playing in tme of crisis with the military on a war footing in the me.
Scathing, truthful, - What bothers me is, America took a tremendous blow to her prestige over this bungling. Yet, somehow, I am not sad or angry. I am instead, hopeful that this gaudy display of Øbama´s incompetence and stupidity will show my fellow Americans what Øbama is and wake them up. My nation is in that much trouble with these losers at her helm I accept damage- even severe damage- as a price for our citizens slothfulness in electing such bums to office.
"If Obama can reinvent himself as the President of the United States of America; if he can throw out all the hacks in his office who have led him to this sorry pass; if he can learn from his mistakes and start to think strategically"
This is a joke, right? Many times in his presidency BO has run into walls, his shellacking in 2010 for example. Everyone wondered if he would do a Clinton pivot to the middle. Obama doubled down on his Statist ideology and got away with it because of the determined actions of the media to keep him in office and the gullibility and foolishness of the electorate.
BO cannot deviate from his ideological lockstep. He doesn´t know how. He has no leadership abilities, only ideological certainty. Without it, he is nothing. He really has no choice.
And the world stage is too large for a fawning US media to manage. Foreign governments and media are NOT in love with BO or the US. Weakness, which BO copiously exudes, is to be taken advantage of.
We will be recovering from BO´s foreign policy disasters for a long, long time. This shouldn´t be a surprise since we are doing the same thing economically.
Amen # 32 This guy oozes contempt for all things American , especially the military . He´s just a step away from using the historic desk in the Oval Office as a toilet. We´ve lost about 1800 US Soldiers and Marines in Afghanistan and Iraq since Barry or Jarrett or Reggie became CINC. Versus 1400 killed in Syria. He beats feet away from those who kill Americans and hops to when it comes to protecting Muslims. Many of the Syrians Barry wants to protect are allied with those killing our soldiers- which is still ongoing in Afghanistan BTW ...and ignored by Barry and his media protectors.
There will always be an aspiring Hitler in the wings. Look at Evita Clinton, Al Gore, John McCain, Marco Rubio, josef Biden, Jerry Brown, and fraudster Kerry. With so many opportunities to smash the Constitution the line seems to be getting longer. The clincher is the Goebbels media backing that helped brainwash the German people,and adjust their non thinking robot brains. We have an entire team to do that with the leadership of Dianne Sawyer and a cast of hundreds of inndotrinating news actors, any dictaor´s job is almost done for him
FTA: He has also destroyed himself. It was painful to watch, even to those who had no particular fondness for him.
Mr. Fernandez, you have more compassion than I do. No, it was not painful to watch - especially not after the destruction to our country that he and his regime (advisor Valerie Jarret) have wreaked on America.
Sorry, I wake up every morning wondering what new outrage this fraud will inflict on us today. I do think Mr. Fernandez is correct, though, that Hillary´s silence is telling. If the worst happens - Hillary is elected president in 2016 - at least we know exactly where she was born and that she was/is an American citizen by birth and education. In her early life she had close conservative and Republican ties. Sometimes as people age, they return to earlier values when they felt the happiest and most secure.
He may be pathetic, foolish, incompetent, and more, but you really can´t call him an affimative action hire. He was hand-picked to be a puppet for the leftist elites and elected by lo-fo voters, the easily duped, close-minded leftists and election fraud.
# 32 I forgot to add that the Resolute desk that Obama is wiping his filthy shoes upon, was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Hayes in 1880. It´s made from the timbers of the British Arctic Exploration ship Resolute. To allow himself to be officially photographed in such a disrespectful manner is Obama´s passive aggressive way of giving the finger to the Brits for shunning him.
NO-Bomber... and his NOT-Really-A-Bad-ASS-ministration...
At least for today, or this holiday weekend... or until further notice... and... We´ll see what actually happens after Zippy gets back to work in the Oral Orifice...
Meanwhile, he´s out on the Golf Course, utilizing... a stiff shaft for... NO-Bomber´s favorite shot... The Reggie Wedgie... Which is probably what caused him to lose all of his balls a long time ago...
And maybe that´s why at times he´s just a little testy...
There is nothing new here. It has been the same situation since 2009. A know-nothing done-nothing president surrounded by academic nitwits, the bone-headed and pretentious Clinton and a gaggle of political hacks who know nothing more than dirty political tricks. They followed Bush´s foreign policy, but failed in the attempt. Now they have something new to face and they are at a loss as what to do. Their academic sense of superiority is inadequate to the task at hand. They would like to see the Islamofascists succeed, but are clueless as how to accomplish that.
Once we establish a no-fly zone as in Libya Assad will fall in a few days. After the Republican House gives the go ahead Hussein will be triumphant. No surrender yet. Sorry, the Allawites/Shiites and Christians are a very small minority.
Taunting a 90-lb weakling who has a machine gun at his disposal might goad him into action.
That said, Palin had star power to equal the young senator from Illinois and was more experienced, the Tea Party has the power of being right, patriotic and now willing to march. You can know the threat of this power to move the masses because the dems and their pop media have laid and played Alinsky ridicule to take them out.
Cure is to not play into their hands and learn the art of war fast and furious. Forget going for the whole plan at once--moderate and cooperate and go for the getabale. One person can´t do it alone. It has taken the dems since the McCarthy era to get it all in a row.
Getting the pop media imbalance of power neutralized and the patriotic could get the ear of the lazy lo-fos who only want to live little lives in peace and plenty on the straight and narrow path back to the top in less years than it took the social democrats redistribtors or is that distructionists?
The Associated Press describes a new problem in Obama’s America. Wealth is once again threatening to rear its ugly head. You may not realize it, but there’s a danger that as many as one in five Americans may get rich sometime in their lifetimes. (Snip) During the 2008 presidential campaign Barack Obama had a conversational encounter with Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, who became known as “Joe the Plumber” that captured the dilemma. When Joe the Plumber declared his desire to earn $250,000 a year Obama replied: "It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure
Seymour Hersh’s expose in the London Review of Books, which the Washington Post allegedly refused to publish accuses Barack Obama of lying about the Syrian chemical weapons attack which nearly triggered a US attack on Assad. Hersh makes two key assertions: First, Obama retroactively cooked up the narrative that the Assad regime was responsible for the infamous sarin attack on civilians in Eastern Ghouta. Second, that the rebel al-Nusra Front, a jihadi faction of the rebel alliance, might plausibly have been the real culprits. Seymour Hersh’s expose in the London Review of Books, which the Washington Post allegedly refused to
"What´s celebrity sex, Dad?" It was my 7-year-old son, who had been looking over my shoulder at my computer screen. He mispronounced "celebrity" but spoke the word "sex" as if he had been using it all his life. "Celebrity six," I said, abruptly closing my AOL screen. "It´s a game famous people play in teams of three," I said, as I ushered him out of my office and downstairs into what I assumed was the safety of the living room. No such luck. His 3-year-old sister had gotten her precocious little hands on my wife´s iPhone as it was charging
Charles Krauthammer reminds a dazed American public that the Obama administration is facing not just one, but three simultaneous foreign policy challenges. (Snip) Part of the problem with the administration is that it can’t clear a backlog. Past crises don’t get solved. They get forgotten. Overwritten by the fresh news cycle. The Washington Post reminds its readers that, as we near 2014, the capture of the 2012 Benghazi consulate attackers has stalled. "U.S. officials say efforts have stalled to capture about a dozen people secretly charged in the 2012 attack on the American compound in Benghazi that claimed the lives
A topless woman sprinted through a Kohl´s department store to nab the Peeping Tom who allegedly shot video of her trying on bras in the dressing room. "I just screamed and chased him topless through the store," Jeanne Ouelette told KCTV. "I know I shouldn´t be chasing someone ... I was just enraged. I was at a store in a very private place, and I was enraged and I wanted to get the phone."

TAMPA — Charlie Bates, the man who muscled his way into three apartments near the University of South Florida three months ago, sexually assaulted four students and terrorized dozens of others, was under the influence of methylone, a synthetic drug common in bath salts that can unhinge the user from reality. Bates, 24, was chased down by law enforcement officers the next day and killed during a shootout on U.S. 301 just east of Tampa. The autopsy showed extremely high levels of methylone in Bates´ body, according to the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner´s Office. “The levels in his system were
We all are familiar with the urn experiment from our college statistics classes. Suppose you have an urn with an unknown proportion of red and green marbles. After being blindfolded you reach into the urn and withdraw a marble and without replacing it draw 9 more. At the conclusion of the sampling there are 10 red balls on the table. What’s your best guess about the proportion of red and green marbles in the urn? Roger Simon makes a disturbing conjecture: “what if all the marbles in the urn are red?” What he actually he writes is “What if It’s
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists caught a 200-pound bear in the Longwood neighborhood where a woman was injured by a bear Monday night. The trapped female bear "closely fits the description of the animal that was involved" in the mauling of 54-year-old Susan Chalfant while she was walking her dogs Monday night. In a statement from FWC spokeswoman Karen Parker, because the bear was caught late Wednesday —within 48 hours of the incident and near the area where the woman was injured, "the decision was made to euthanize the bear." Samples from the bear will be sent in for testing,
Lee Vyborny, one of the “plankowners” of the NR-1 mini nuclear submarine recalls how Electric Boat became a victim of its own success during the Cold War. As more submarines were built both the unions and corporate freebooters started to cash in on the apparent river of gold which the burgeoning contract portfolio represented. (Snip) The same sort of misfortune seems to have befallen Venezuela. Its oil riches attracted rentseekers like flies to honey. And the biggest rentseekers of all are the Men of the People. Even the Guardian knows that the enlightened ones have done in what should have
President Obama’s foreign policy clout it growing from an unexpected source. First some background. In the Caribbean, where Venezuela’s PetroCaribe diplomacy once ruled the roost, the Chavez enterprise is on the verge of collapse. The reason is it’s going broke from more competition. (Snip) It is being beggared by not only the mismanagement of the Venezuelan oil industry but by fracking. Megan McArdle explained that scarcity — artificial or natural — was OPEC’s friend. Abundance was its enemy. "As long as prices were high, all of this was fine; Saudi and everyone else were pumping a lot and taking in
According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, Floridians support legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes by a whopping 82-16 margin, crossing all party lines. Frustrated by decades of inaction by the Florida Legislature, citizens have taken it into their own hands to put the issue directly before voters through a citizens’ initiative to amend the Florida Constitution. The question should be whether Florida wants to join 20 other states and the District of Columbia in making medical marijuana available to its residents suffering from debilitating illnesses. Instead, those in Florida leadership positions in both the legislative and executive branches are busy trying
One of the indefinable characteristics of deterrence is something called “credibility”. The credibility of a state was the confidence that if X then that state would do Y. It made things predictable. Now if the Obama administration says it will disarm Iran or stop North Korea, would it predictably do so? Iran seems to think the Obama administration will predictably not stop it. Recently Reuters announced that “Iran will pursue construction at the Arak heavy-water reactor, Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif was quoted as saying on Wednesday, despite a deal with world powers to shelve a project they fear could
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
