Obama’s ‘unbelievably small’ presidency
Washington Post, by Marc A. Thiessen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/17/2013 5:27:41 AM

If you have any doubts that President Obama’s handling of Syria is an utter debacle, witness the embarrassing spectacle this morning as his top aides scramble to place blame for it at their boss’s feet. In today’s Wall Street Journal, senior officials leak how they desperately tried to talk Obama out of his “head-spinning reversal” on airstrikes and his decision to go to Congress. “He received swift — and negative — responses from his staff,” the Journal reports. National security adviser Susan Rice, we learn, warned that “he risked undermining his powers as commander in chief.” Senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer

If Democrats had sincerely wanted a credible, competent commander in chief who would act in the best interest of the nation - would they ever have even considered someone like Barack Obama for the presidency, much less place him in the Oval Office for two terms?! Think about it.

Democrats clearly do not want the president of the United States to be credible, competent or to act in the best interest of the nation. That would work against their grand scheme: Decline (or as they call it, "Forward"). The apparent consternation now at Obama´s littleness is only a show, believe me.

Obama did not get elected with just Democrat votes. Consider how many Republicans voted for him or sat it out. Consider how many inept, self serving Republicans like Boehner, Cantor, Lindsay Graham and McCain assist him in every way all as they say "fight with me". Now the Republicans have enormous supply of issues that the country is urging them to fight and they attack Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for doing so. They exasperate me. If this is a representative republic, it sure doesn´t seem that way. We expect this from the Dems but the Republicans cave or attack the leader who truly fights.

This should have finally proven that the liberal apologetic surrender monkey strategy of what they like to call ´foreign policy´ not only endangers America but has impact on every corner of the world. The aging peaceniks and Democrat spinmeisters will carry on with their pathetic story of how brilliant this all was but the rest of us know how sad the truth really is. It will take years to repair the damage this horrible man has done to our country.

Instead, Russia and Syria were the ones issuing the demands. Russia has elevated its standing on the world stage at America’s expense, with President Vladi­mir Putin lecturing the president in a New York Times op-ed about the dangers of American exceptionalism.

Reading Thiessen´s litany of faux pas by this POTUS, it is clear that the incoherent policies are finally being noticed.

Obama thinks like a postmodern: He doesn´t have to give rational thought to what he states is the truth. He doesn´t have to give coherent reasons for his actions. He simply believes that if he thinks it, it is not only true but will come to pass.

Obama, postmodern that he is, does not know how to think analytically; his thinking is based entirely on what he wants to be true, if indeed he gives truth a second glance.

This is how he gets away with non-logical, non-analytical actions -- he is surrounded by other postmoderns whose thinking processes follow the same pattern - incoherence.

Would you want a postmodern thinker doing your surgery? The result would be the result we are seeing today; a hemorrhaging of our country´s life´s blood, our Constitution and a botched operation they call foreign policy.

Major outward disrespect from Russia strictly because Obama, and Kerry, are such incompetent buffoons. Never would have happened under any other president, including Carter, I don´t believe.

Talented people either won´t run or can´t get elected. The skill set candidates need is acting ability and marketing facility. But the actual job is administrative. Getting a person with command of all these talents and the desire to do demanding work for little compensation is probably too much to ask.

It´s because he is black. If this man was white he would still be a small-time poli making pretty speeches in Chicago. And this is the reason he will never be impeached, no matter what he does. The country has been bending over backwards and forwards and turning itself into a pretzel to atone for the sin of slavery and discrimination. It´s just too bad that our first black president also happens to be a Marxist/communist.

So now WAPO takes Obama to task over his judgement and handling of a potential crisis? They sound as if they are America´s biggest cheerleaders and so "disappointed" that the "quarterback" (Barry O) didn´t "run the ball" into the end zone.

I am thinking back to the Bush43 years after Dubya "ran the ball" into the end zone in Iraq and Afghanistan, with Congress and UN approval. Only briefly, when the "touchdown" was scored, was there any praise for his strength and resolve in defeating a very despicable enemy.

Almost on a daily basis the MSM, which includes WAPO, called Dubya a "cowboy" whose hat was too big for him, and he even wore "cowboy" boots, too. It didn´t matter that most Texans who own ranches usually do wear cowboy boots for good reason - snakes.

Oh how I miss Dubya and his lovely wife Laura! They are truly good people. Remember how Dubya gave up playing golf shortly after the war in Iraq began, because the soldiers fighting in the war couldn´t play golf. He thought it unseemly for the C-I-C to play in time of war and those he sent to war couldn´t. Also remember, President Bush and Laura quite often visited our injured soldiers in the hospital when they returned home.

I could write a book on the glaring differences between a real President and how he leads compared to this fake, phony, imposter and his witchy wife occupying our White House.

Finally, after decades of planning, the progressives have a front man in the presidency.He is not smart but believes as they do. Look at his cabinet, his czars.And before that, his mentors ( Wright and Davis) . His shadowy past. He has been brought up with contempt for America. At the 10th annivesary ceremony of 9/11 , he was in NYC with his wife who was seen to say to him " All this for a damn flag".obama nodded in response. The hate this contry, and bringig it down (in any and all ways )is the plan . Please understand, anyone that disagrees with this plan is seen and treated as an enemy.

Uprising - Why would you rise up against the guy giving you free phones? Gas prices, not his fault. Food prices, not his fault. Out of work, he´s pushing for more unemployment benefits and easier access to food stamps.

Somehow, his policies are not his fault.

It won´t be a ´patriot´ who makes an attempt at the ONE. We´re too optimistic - we think we can fix what he breaks after he is out of office (that depends of if he follows the rules and allows an election in 2016)

As history has shown us, it will be a disgruntled liberal that causes the implementation of Martial Law and the suspension of elections. As in the Boston bombing, the liberal media and politicians will immediately blame the Tea Party, thus getting the erroneous information on the front page, only to be corrected on page 14 in a quarter inch column a few days later.

FTA: “Russia has elevated its standing on the world stage at America’s expense, with President Vladimir Putin lecturing the president in a New York Times op-ed about the dangers of American exceptionalism.”

This comment refers to a side-topic of the article but what infuriates, still, is the decision of the NYT to publish President Putin’s critical letter on September 11, 2013. September 11!! – a holy, sacred day to all Americans still reeling from the utter brutality and loss from the terrorist actions of that day. That the opinion editor of the premier newspaper of New York (of all places) chose to publish such a letter written by an avowed adversary on that date prompts one to wonder about the political motivation of the choice.

In my opinion, the decision to publish that patronizing, finger-wagging letter on that date remains one that is disgraceful and disgusting.

He hasn´t undermined anything. He can´t. Not saying he doesn´t try awfully hard every single day but it´s virtually impossible for him to undermine his presidency. Undermine with respect to whom? The press? The voters? Educators? The uber bed and Depends wetting GOP? Undermine with respect to what? The truth? The consequences to the nation? His agenda continues to afterburn toward Alinsky Xanadu regardless of who or how anyone reacts so how exactly can he undermine his own presidency? And again as Hillary would say, "What difference does it make"? Certainly doesn´t make a flip to the Jell-O, er, I mean, the GOP.

He´s right on track with carefully planned

birth certificate and all the court cases that have been launched against his allegedly treasonous act. Time for the truth to attack the commie agitator who looks very much like he´s an outright imposter. If he is in fact, not president, he cannot be impeached. If he is in fact an
impersonator, not who he says his, he can be found guilty in dozens of different courts, in any and all states, so there is no escape, and simply arrested for treason.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says.

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences.

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

What is the Census Bureau hiding? Census, which is under investigation by several government agencies and by Congress, is refusing to turn over an estimated 1,900 e-mails and text messages between a regional supervisor in its Philadelphia office, where falsification of unemployment data took place, and a colleague in its Chicago region, who a source has identified as the supervisor’s mentor and confidant. On March 5, under the Federal Freedom of Information Act, I requested all e-mails between Fernando Armstrong, the regional director of the Philadelphia office, and Stanley Moore, Chicago’s regional director, from 2010 until my filing date.

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

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

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.

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
