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.

That´s all he needs and good bye to all we have ever known and loved about our country. He´ll be king for life and that´s the way he wants it.

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.

Over 100 years of presidential (and

For a vice president’s daughter, Sarah Gore had a low-key wedding on Sunday in Carpinteria, Calif. But second weddings tend to be more modest affairs, and Sarah, 35, like her parents and her big sisters Kristin and Karenna, is a veteran of a failed marriage. She married Santa Barbara real-estate agent Patrick Maiani this weekend under a pine near a coffee shop, having previously wed tech investor Bill Lee, in 2007. Here are some other daughters of presidents and vice presidents who had splashy weddings.

Kentucky Republican Sen.

There still is some fraud. And so we should stop that, and one way of doing it is (driver’s licenses).” Paul said, according to a Washington Post transcript. “Although the incidence of fraud is relatively small,” Axelrod responded. “It probably is, and I think Republicans may have overemphasized this. I don’t know,” Paul responded. According to the Post, Paul noted that he does support voter ID but unlike some Republicans, who

The wife of an Illinois man who drowned after a brutal swan attack is suing the condo complex where he tended the birds. Amy Hensley claims the vicious April 2012 assault in Des Plaines "caused or contributed to" the death of her husband Anthony. And she blames the Bay Colony Drive complex, where it occurred, Hillcrest Property Management and his bosses at Knox Swan and Dog for not realizing the danger he was in.

It is unfortunate that events generally require the commission of a crime of unspeakable magnitude in some unsuspecting community before the media is prodded to, yet again, take up the long overdue reexamination of the various “hate crime” laws peppering the legal code of the federal government and most of the states. Such was the unfortunate case yet again in April of 2014 when Fraizer Glenn Miller, a former grand wizard of the Klan, opened fire at a Jewish community center and an adult care facility in Kansas. Whether Miller “succeeded” in his desire to kill Jews or not (he didn’t,

Gentlemanliness is, without a doubt, Britain´s most enduring export. For Evelyn Waugh, writing breathlessly to Nancy Mitford in 1956, it provided no less than an explanation for ‘all our national greatness´. But, although he spent his entire life in thrall to the concept, he never explained what he actually meant by it. He, like most of us, assumed that you simply knew a gentleman when you saw one. Other writers have only managed to come up with partial definitions. For George Bernard Shaw, a gentleman always ‘puts more into the world than he takes out´. Oscar Wilde thought that a gentleman

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

How Lindsey Graham

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

The Problem With Student-Loan Forgiveness
National Journal, by Sophie Quinton    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/23/2014 5:51:46 AM     Post Reply
If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

BOOM: The Left’s Favorite Talking
Point Disproved by Science

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/23/2014 5:32:21 AM     Post Reply
You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

Would you boycott a family dinner because your grandfather holds some politically incorrect views about welfare recipients? Or, would you uninvite a neighboring family from attending a block party after learning that they attend an evangelical church that upholds a traditional definition of marriage? Most reasonable people would say “no,” adhering to the old adage that it’s rude to talk politics in polite company. Unfortunately, this rule of etiquette that has governed civil society for ages seems to be quickly evaporating in the world of commerce, as highlighted by the now notorious case of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

WASHINGTON -- In a dissent to Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action programs in its public colleges, Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks from experience about the complex impact of such programs on her own life. Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.
