Why the Country Is
Unhappy Under Obama

U.S.News & World Report, by Mortimer B. Zuckerman

When you accumulate some of the adjectives from the pundits, the media, and other appraisals that were not from the right but from baffled sympathizers and centrists, there is no doubt that President Barack Obama clearly lost the debate this week, as a matter of both substance and tone. Take your pick from the river of insults: listless, meandering, lazy, dull-brained, long-winded, languid, and flaccid were just some of the epithets from the pundits. Even the New York Times opined that "He lost his competitive edge." The worst that Mitt Romney's relatively few critics could come up with

"The president appears to have lost his intellectual interest."
Sorry, Mort...he never had any interest, intellectual or otherwise. The Choomster just looked at this as another easy rider rock star gig. He figured that he'd do what he's always done...provide the utopian socialist dreams while everyone else did the heavy lifting. This guy's never put in an honest days work in his life. It's all a radical hippie cerebral buzz, without the benefit of facts or reality.

Clearly I am clueless as I saw absolutely NO different Obama in the debate than the one I have seen for the last 4 years. How was anything different for those who say they now have noticed? I just do not get it.

The 4 years under Obama has been the most miserable 4 years for Americans in their history.

Why you are unhappy when your house is burning down.

The kitchen is on fire. The living room is on fire. The bedroom is on fire. The furniture is on fire.

And Mort babe, you mindlessly lit the fuse in 2008. Thanks kid.

If Obama failed because of simple bad judgment,that would be one thing. The really bad part is the underlying shadiness and corruption and complete lack of accountability for his absurd cabinet people and czars.

Let me put it in terms that today's undecideds (and particularly you Julias) might better understand.

America, he's just not that into you. You fell for his line. You had a one-term stand with him. But now you've woken up with "battered country syndrome." There's still time to turn your life around. Let...him...go.

FTA ~ But now the Obama team excuses its failure to grasp the severity of the slump by saying that even if they had seen the slow recovery coming, they couldn't have done much about it. When Obama has been asked about his mistakes, he talks not about his policies but about his messaging. But clearly the biggest mistake was his failure to recognize that we are up against an economic decline that requires nothing less than night and day concentration.

It's not "failure to communicate, Mr President." We understand fully that you have taken this country down the wrong path that majority of Americans will not go. Time to admit that you have deceived us. Jimmy Carter is an honorable man but a failed president and you Mr President is Jimmy Carter.

You are so right #6. I know of no one who is optimistic or happy. Personally I thought Mitt went too easy on the Teenage Thug.

Zuckerman can't be too bright if it took him this long to figure out that the affirmative action marxist has no abilities other than reading his beloved TOTUS. There are some of us who never believed the B.S. of four years ago. Too bad, so sad. Idiots all.

Anybody asking this question at this late date is either an idiot or has been in a coma.

Stop the Metaphor Madness

Can we, before our L-Tryptophan coma commences, vow to abandon all attempts to festoon Obamacare with ridiculous historical metaphors? The damn law is big, with a regulatory heft now in excess of 20,000 pages. But even this governmental behemoth groans under the weight of metaphorical ornaments both daft and dull. Obamacare is not Katrina, not in fact or political impact. Obamacare is not Iraq, not in its human or material cost or in the reckless misuse of a commander in chief´s most sacred obligations of truth, judgment, and management. Obamacare is not the Bay of Pigs, not in concept, execution, or

Trayvon Martin and the

In trying to assess the the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, two seemingly conflicted truths emerge for me. The first is that based on the case presented by the state, and based on Florida law, George Zimmerman should not have been convicted of second degree murder or manslaughter. The second is that the killing of Trayvon Martin is a profound injustice. In examining the first conclusion, I think it´s important to take a very hard look at the qualifications allowed for aggressors by Florida´s self-defense statute: Use of force by aggressor.

Sometimes when you’re writing part of a column you keep getting close to the meaning of what you want to say but you don’t quite get there, the full formulation of the idea eludes you. Then two days later, relaxing in conversation with friends, the thought comes to you whole, and you think: That’s what I meant to say. That’s what I was trying to get. This week I had one of those moments.

Where Obama Went Wrong
In The Gun Control Fight
BuzzFeed, by Evan McMorris-Santoro & Ruby Cramer    Original Article

In one of the toughest defeats of President Obama´s political career, the Senate this week sank a piece of gun control legislation that the White House had been laboring over for months. As the post-mortems of the loss begin, some have questioned if gun control got bogged down with the president´s ongoing struggle to effectively operate the levers of power in Washington. Culprits for the bill´s demise are plenty — from gutless Senate moderates, to inflexible pro-gun conservatives, to a brazen gun lobby that waged an aggressive, and sometimes misleading, campaign to defeat the legislation.

I remember it so clearly — a memory you can only remember so clearly when it is from sadness. You can’t let it go. I was sitting in the mud by the rear passenger side tire of my old Acura cradling my one year old in the steady, driving rain. I was sobbing doing my best not to fall apart in front of my little girl. But the tears ran. My throat hurt as I tried to suppress the guttural cries I wanted to cry there in the mud.

   

 



 
With background check proposal,
Toomey’s not just firing off the cuff
Tribune-Review [Pittsburgh PA], by Eric Heyl    Original Article

Pat Toomey obviously isn´t flummoxed by basic arithmetic. The Republican Pennsylvania senator is proving that as he and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., attempt to modestly modify requirements for criminal background checks on gun purchases. The two senators, both gun-rights advocates, are pushing legislation that would require such checks for all gun show and Internet sales. Toomey is being labeled a Judas in conservative circles for backing what is being described incorrectly as a gun control bill. It is not.

Kermit Gosnell, a Pennsylvania abortion doctor, is on trial for a lurid series of lurid crimes at his clinic. I can´t bring myself to describe them, so I´ll let Kirsten Powers do it. Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven´t heard about these sickening accusations? It´s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. 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

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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

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

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
