The tranquillity of Obama´s mind
CNN, by Newt Gingrich

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 7/19/2014 7:58:34 PM

When White House press secretary Josh Earnest said this week that President Barack Obama had "substantially improved the tranquillity of the global community," many observers reacted with disbelief. (snip) It is as though the more dangerous the world becomes the more Obama hides in a fantasy world of avoiding the responsibilities of the presidency. He uses the office to surround himself with court jesters who distract him in an enlightened and noble way from the growing failures of his policies and the rapidly expanding threats to the civilized world. Finally, as Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to flex his muscles

Perhaps it will be the 25th Amendment and not Impeachment that will bring this evil man down.

I was surprised by the tone of this article coming from CNN. Then I noticed the author and CNN´s disclaimer that "The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author". I´m sure that´s the case!

...actually he may be the first to be taken away in a padded wagon, which would bring up the 25th...

...nothing here to be seen that wasn´t there in the beginning. Barry probably is a "clinical" narcissist, we know he has never stayed with a job. Was paid to write book he couldn´t finish. Best exemplifies the theory of "The Peter Principal", even before being elected to this office. And you could add a little of the "Peter Pan Syndrome" to his file...

...and here we are, six years in and there are those who wonder why this is all happening. As our country is assaulted from within, the world becomes more fragile...

Obama sees the US as the source of all instability in the world....so when he says the world is more tranquil it´s because he has been working at removing the US as world leader.

BO is a passive aggressive twit.

The whole "no drama" thing was presented as a man of "preternatural" calm. In reality he´s a vacant, narcissistic, shallow, and markedly unaccomplished man who just can´t be bothered by taking responsibility.

He looked completely ´out of it´ on Friday at his press briefing. He shows the wild emotional swings from day to day which is an indication he is using too much. Hopefully one day his handlers won´t want him to get in front of the microphone and we can all relax. A mental breakdown is not too far in the future if he doesn´t stop.

As a quick reminder, Valerie Jarrett told David Remnick the following:

“I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. … He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. … So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. … He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Extremely forceful and well-written. I noticed that CNN had to distance itself from Newt´s comments before they published the column, the cowards.

Still, the article states without equivocation what we on the Right,especially here on L.Com have been saying, that Obama is not simply out of touch, but perhaps out of his mind.

The self-image of Obama as a bear is so delusional that it brings into question the degree to which he is simply out of touch with reality.

When the "bear´s" entire repertoire, aside from decrying the downing of the airplane, consists entirely of joking around, smiling, hitting beer and burger joints, playing golf, and avoiding confrontations, it is legitimate to question his mental health.

I see CNN is testing the waters by dipping their toe into the pool of the truth...

My observation is that the Øbamboozler is very comfortable in his role as the official Hood Ornament of the Left. Plenty of golf outings, lavish vacations and even sharing a milk shake with Joe Biden (D Imbecile) are his reward for not working too hard and basically staying out of the way... per agreement with Vlad, while quietly working on weakening America any way possible as the world spins madly out of control with no leash on the Communists.

Obama is a simple-minded person. His thoughts consist of little more than catch phrases. Very little if any intelligence shows in his words or actions. He is rather an invisible being since there is never any substance in what he says and his day-to-day living is pure self-indulgence. The propagandists sold his pretentiousness as profundity. Hopefully that is finally wearing thinner and the silliness of it all is becoming apparent to a lot more people. He certainly is not a tranquil individual, but he is definitely intellectually and emotionally numb. A dangerous world is becoming even more frightening by having someone in the White House who is less than mediocre.

It should be obvious by now to anyone being fair that Obama is in way over his head. Like any person with a selfish teenager´s view of the world --- which began the day I was born and is here to support just me --- Obama moves on very quickly from his personal disasters which are never his fault. And when mom and/or dad says if I don´t clean my room, I´ll be grounded, why I just set fire to the house or crash the car! Now they have something to really worry about and will get off my back!

Notice how the IRS scandal, Benghazi, the VA deaths, illegal children invading Texas, etc. have all moved to the back burner as a new self-inflicted scandal looms on the horizon.

I realized he does this, purposely, to elevate himself. He can´t have a person with a wealth of knowledge, experience and stature around him. He wants cheerleaders and fund raising activists. That´s the extent of what he offers the American people.

Have not had much time to read lately, so this has probably been pointed out many times, but --

Obama´s referring to himself as "the Bear" is a prime example of his cultural tone-deafness and superficial (though on paper, superior) education: Russia has always been "The Bear." Does this pipsqueak really think he can go toe-to-toe with Vladimir or is he just dumb as dirt?

I still maintain that we will not have the luxury of waiting out Obama´s last term. Something is going to happen either here or abroad that will force our hand.

Our country is slowly being killed by a death of a thousand cuts. I´m afraid that if Congress fails to act to stop a madman there will be trouble not seen in over a century.

History is filled with lessons. A great many wise men learned from those lesson; Like Machiavelli. Like Sir. Winston Churchill. They graphically understand the mind of hollow leaders like Øbama. The damage such men do when they come to power is unimaginable. It always leads to massive human misery and a cessation of civilization. In a truth- we elected Øbama, knowing virtually nothing about him. We deserve the misery he is about to spill upon us. But, it shames me to say, We knew better!

After all, D.C. is a gold mine for the professional politicians, lobbyists, and crooked lawyers. They just have to keep the electorate dumb and happy.

Karl Rove would never be so impolite as to mention immigration amnesty in a Wall Street Journal op ed advising Republicans what to do. Rove, like the WSJ ed board, is a long-time amnesty booster, after all.(snip)It was voter opposition to Obama’s plan for a de-facto amnesty by executive action that caused the President to postpone the plan until after the election.

Since Barack Obama has been the Hindenburg of Presidents on the domestic front, there hasn´t been as much commentary as you´d expect about the fact that he has been the Titanic of Presidents on foreign policy. George W. Bush certainly made his mistakes as President, primarily in Iraq, but you did at least get the sense that his administration was full of capable, serious adults sincerely grappling with a new strategic problem for the country. On the other hand, when it comes to foreign policy, Obama comes across like a bored kid playing war because his mother won´t let him come

Two hundred years ago on Aug. 24, the U.S. Capitol and the White House went up in flames. If not for the quick thinking of a State Department clerk, the Declaration of Independence, and many other documents dating to the founding, would have as well. On the morning of Aug. 20, 1814, Secretary of State James Monroe stood atop a bluff near Aquasco Mills, and gazed three miles south toward Benedict, a village on Maryland’s Patuxent River. Though he was without a spyglass, through squinted eyes Monroe spotted British ships coming up the river and their soldiers coming ashore. With that,

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
