This weak and timid President talks big...
and does nothing: A devastating attack on
Obama by a top Washington insider

Daily Mail (U.K.), by Clark S. Judge

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/20/2014 3:23:54 AM

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Is it really possible for anyone to doubt anymore that the projection of American weakness is entirely on purpose and, in fact, *is* Dear Leader Barack Hussein´s foreign policy? You know, the kind of apologetic submissiveness every single "progressive" in the world was screaming for the US to adopt during the Bush years?

This is not ineptitude. It is the nuts and bolts of the very intentional American Decline the Left so rabidly desires and has counted on Dear Leader Barack Hussein to deliver. Which he is doing. On purpose. And barring impeachment, the downward spiral will continue, utterly unopposed, for 32 more months.

He simply appears weak because the racism card, his only card, is ignored on the international stage.

The sad thing is, this is the fundamental transformation that he and "those we´ve been waiting for" so fervently desired.
I wonder if there´ll be anything left to rebuild from once we get rid of Obongo since the GOP for the most part seems to be on the same page of the playbook that the Dems are reading from.

Last line of article...It is not just American interests that a flailing White House threatens. It is that of peoples everywhere.

The day after the election in 2008, I emailed a friend in Canada that 0bama would take the US down and that, when he did, the rest of the world would go with us. She thought I was being arrogant. I wonder what she thinks now.

FTA: Perhaps it is time for a key ally like Prime Minister David Cameron to have a friendly talk with the President.

I hate to break it to Mr. Judge, but Barack isn´t going to listen to a "honky" from Great Britain, a country that was so mean to Barry´s peeps in Kenya. It´s a new day in America, and whomever used to be our friends, especially white European countries, will only receive Barry´s middle finger. Get used to it world - it´s payback time - at least in Barry´s small mind.

If the Democcrate had an ounce of integrity they would rein in their President and put a stop to the chaos. They should be ashamed to put party before country. But they have no integrity and will not do so.

The destruction of the country has always been purposeful. I can´t help but wonder if the "handlers" realized that it would also destroy the bringer of all things destructive for the country. More and more he appears weak mentally and physically. I can´t imagine he and ValJar struggling through the rest of his dangerously flawed administration.

Past performance tends to be a good predictor of future performance.

Obama may be a case in point. As editor of a law review, Mr. Obama was not known for outstanding leadership; as a state senator, Mr. Obama
avoided hard choices by voting "present;" as a U.S. senator, Mr. Obama mainly prepared to run for higher office.

Some think this pattern of performance ("weak and timid") is now situated in the White House.

Point of clarification, #14: The current Wanker-in-Chief wasn’t the editor of the Harvard Law Review – a position that traditionally goes to a student who is well within the top 10% of his class academically. Instead, and tellingly, he was the president of the HLR – which, although it certainly dresses up one’s resume, is essentially an administrative position, somewhat akin to that of the managing partner in a law firm.

Although by custom the president is expected to contribute an article or two to the publication, the WiC never did so. His contemporaries have also reported that he lobbied, more or less discreetly but persistently, for the job – and was given it primarily (a) for the liberal cachet of naming the first non-white individual to the post, and (b) to shut him up.

That third photo of Obama made the hair on my arms stand up. I realize this comment isn´t relevant to the article itself, but the photo is so revealing. There is nothing good there, nothing upbeat, nothing American, nothing elevated. It honestly gives me chills to see that photo.

As for the actual article, I´m not certain Obama would make a tough decision and stick to it if his life depended on it. He doesn´t have risk in his constitution unless someone else it taking it.

He will never make a tough decision unless he, like Sun Tzu, knows in advance that the cards are stacked in his favor. That is why he won´t go through Congress -- he´ll get slapped down again.

No, he wants Republican fingerprints on his decisions so that when they fail, and they always do, he can blame them. Barring their cooperation, he simply writes EOs.

I´d ask what we did to deserve this cretin, but I already know.

The one thing that sticks in the back of my mind is "What is going to happen when Obozo DOES complete in turning the US into a banana republic"? Then what. Do the "progressives" really believe that everything is going to be peaches and cream and that everyone will be equal in all things? And just who or what is going to protect this country from outside attack? Themselves, just by being "nice" to the rest of the world? If so, then we have a country full of people that are mentally ill. NOTHING like that has EVER existed in the history of mankind. And to think it will in this day and age is unbelievable. And I suppose that they think that THEY will run everything simply because they are smarter that we are. And the real outrage is that WE are supposed to like it./rant

The country elected an incompetent fool and the world is paying a price for it. He has NO idea of how global politics work. The personality politics that he employs here aided by the media does not work in the larger world.

Suggesting someone "have a talk" with him is ridiculous. BO has no capacity to learn and his ego and handlers isolate him from anyone who might be helpful.

We are stuck with the dope for now.

Maybe people will start to learn that a presidential election if far more than a popularity contest. The president actually has to run the country and make significant contributions to running the world as well. A community organizer is a completely insufficient preparation for the responsibility as we now can see.

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me

The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

I made sure it went in for Monday even though, for technical reasons, I had to reenter it twice into the publishing system.

Want to get a new angle on Obama´s Hope and Change mantra? Longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote the book about it before Obama was even born: The Ordeal of Change. [E]very radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem... It needs inordinate self-confidence to face drastic change without inner trembling. “Action,” wrote Hoffer, “is the most obvious way by which to gain confidence and prove our worth...

"I´m in D.C., so I´m for it," Obama said Monday at a town-hall event to promote his "My Brother´s Keeper" program. "I´ve long believed that folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else," Obama added.

Worried about the supposedly crumbling wall of separation between church and state, the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) launched a “Knit a Brick” campaign to “harness outrage” at the ruling. The group will send yarn bricks to the Supreme Court, Congress, or White House staffers. Targets will be selected based on the number of bricks the Coalition’s high command receives by August 5, according to Religionnews.com. If organizers collect 400 bricks, they will send them to

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962.

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria.

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes.
