Obama’s Path Was
Shaped by Mandela’s Story

New York Times, by Michael D. Shear

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/6/2013 5:10:35 PM

WASHINGTON — Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama. That is the strong impression conveyed from Mr. Obama, whose political and personal bonds to Mr. Mandela, the former South African president, transcended their single face-to-face meeting, which took place at a hotel here in 2005. It was the fight for racial justice in South Africa by Mr. Mandela that first inspired a young Barack Obama to public service, the American president recalled on Thursday evening after hearing that Mr. Mandela, the 95-year-old world icon, had died. Mr. Obama delivered his first public speech, in 1979, at

Yeah, yeah, yeah... Mandela and Obama were SO close. SO close that when Obama invited himself to visit Mandela last year, that Mandela and family told Obama to STICK IT.

Spare me, NYTimes.

Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama.

Mandela may be responsible for many things but Barky isn´t one of them, no matter how vivid or numerous the Won´s imaginary recollections may be.

If Ø speaks at Mandela´s funeral, here´s a little game to play: take a shot of your favorite bourbon every time he says "I" or "me". You´ll likely be hammered before he gets halfway through.

BTW, Hillary would have spent more time with Mandela but she kept getting pinned down by snipers.

The connection between Mandela and Obama is a stretch.

However; there are considerable similar characteristics between Obama and President Robert Mugabe. Massive redistribution of the property of white folks to the bros is at the top of the list.

Mr. Mandela had a very good talent for knowing an empty suit versus a real player.

Mr. Mandela never gave Stinky an audience, ever.

The New Collosus. Sort of. By Chris Matthews.

Now it can be revealed. All history is important only as it shaped Barrack.

Yet too little is known. Like the youth of Jesus in Egypt, we must guess about the Pacific years of the child Barrack.

But we do know the God for the new millenium has come. Obama; the man/god Lincoln might have been if only Abe had been worthy.

Mandela seemingly was focused on Africa but his destiny was to play the role of John the Baptist. He prepared the way for the Won.

RIP Nelson. You served as it was foretold. Besides, you got a Peace Prize too.

Republicans in Congress are being accused of fighting a "war on the war on poverty," in part because of a tiny cut in the food stamps program last week. Democrats charge that these "cuts" will take food from the mouths of hungry children, and they claim this is an example of how Congress has shred the safety net for the poor. Never mind that this is the food aid program that has tripled in cost and doubled in participation in just the last decade. Even during the economic recovery, the number of recipients — one in seven Americans — continues to

President Obama has talked a lot recently about reducing income inequality. Yet he neither acknowledges how much money the government is redistributing, nor how much more would be needed to close the income gap. Perhaps that´s because the project would require redistribution on a staggering scale. That´s the upshot of two separate studies published in November 2013 by the Congressional Budget Office and the Tax Foundation. While they used slightly different methodologies, each study measured the amount of existing redistribution by the federal government—by comparing how much Americans get back in total federal spending (everything from transfer programs to national defense)

That, you might remember, was when the White House itself was closed to schoolchildren who had saved up all year for their trips to D.C. only to find out the administration could no longer afford to give tours. But Congress somehow managed to fully fund tours of the U.S. Capitol. You might also recall that during Presidents Day weekend last year America´s

But now, for the first time since Pew Research has tracked this trend over the past 50 years, the share of couples in which the wife is the one “marrying down” educationally is higher than those in which the husband has more education."

However, there´s a chance that the Drudge watercooler could start up again if his lucky charm decides to run in 2016. As Drudge was quoted in New York Magazine in 2007, “I need Hillary Clinton.

Jeb Bush are dumped at the bottom, undermining their hopes of being 2016 crossover candidates.

President Obama and congressional Democrats had said they were opposed to even discussing spending cuts in the context of the debt ceiling. But Republicans couldn´t even come together with their own plan. “It´s a recognition that we don´t have 218 votes. When you don´t have 218 votes, you have nothing,” Boehner said in a press conference. House leadership began the effort

Democrats say economic issues such as raising the minimum wage and protecting Social Security have become paramount for anyone aiming to lead the party after years of tough economic times. During the 2008 primary campaign against Barack Obama, Clinton was hurt by her stand on the Iraq war while she was a senator.

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to
