Obama Set to Discover Inheriting
Your Own Mess Is Hard

Townhall, by Elisabeth Meinecke

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/24/2012 6:04:30 AM

For four years, President Obama and his team never failed to remind Americans of the state of the country he inherited from his Oval Office predecessor. The mess left at the end of Obama’s first term, however, makes the George W. Bush years look gift-wrapped. From the debt to entitlements to health care and education, the next four years promise a gauntlet of challenges the White House must address sooner rather than later.Challenges abroad The Eurozone and the Global EconomyOn January 20, the president faces an even more questionable global economic outlook than previous administrations.

If you pour gasoline on your own house, it´s a safe bet you don´t care if it burns to the ground. Only if you´re caught at it.

I guess there is some sort on mental cutoff point where Obama starts owning everything but don´t doubt for a minute that it´ll be republican obstructionism will become the new scape goat.

If only Obama could get his hands on $2 trillion in new money,he could make the country´s problems vanish overnight. Who cares where he gets the two trillion from or how much the interest payments are on it. He can´t raise taxes that much or the economy would shrink to a (-) 50 growth rate,making the problem worse.

Maggie Thatcher´s immortal words have never been truer. Socialism works great until you run out of other people´s money.The left are some vicious people when cornered by a lack of new money streams coming in. Left wing fruitcake groups are already lining up to make sure they feel no pain under a fiscal cliff deal.

The biggest problem the left has on getting more money is most of it would have to come from stingy rich liberals.

And inheriting Obama is even worse! Lord knows he will probably never grasp that HE is the cause of a lot of this, his arrogance being what it is. THIS will be his legacy, but like Jimmy Carter, he will never pay, at least among those who worship him-----I truly truly hope THEY suffer along with the rest of us.

Don´t hold your breath. The central theme of the play ´0bama´ was created by the left with non-accountability as the central theme. Many years, a lot of money and effort has gone into this production. Facts, law, traditions, Constitution have meant and will mean nothing. Dust off and put in a good fight for 2014 is the only option left.

Valerie Jarret and other high-level democrats who pull the puppet strings will do all of the back-room dealing, worrying and water carrying. The so-called president will vacation and play golf and be oblivious to all of it except if something happens for which there is credit and praise to be dished out by the MSM. Sometime around January, he will also begin campaigning for his third term.

If it wasn´t so darn serious, it would really be comical in fact hilarious...even twenty years ago if you would told someone in this great country of ours that in the future that we would have a president with this current ideology and with the current wrong direction of the country and oh by the way we didn´t get enough in the first four years some opted out four more...they would have called us insane...so the insane of yesterday is the norm today...progressive is really regressive...in the next four years there will probably not be a dull moment and maybe the Sheeple will finally realize the truth if they are not still asleep!

This might be an interesting and even valuable article EXCEPT...

Obama´s objective IS NOT to improve the economy, public schools, his own economic performance, or the overall well-being of the country - his public pronouncements beginning with his few months as a US Senator bear this out.

What is his objective? - watch Dinesh D´Souza´s documentary 2016 and you´ll know for certain... or just read a few of Obama´s thousands of speeches over the last six years. By government executive fiat and legislation, he wants to "level the playing field" among the ´wealthy´ and the ´poor´, the ´haves´ and ´have nots´, the ´producers´ and the ´takers´, the employed and the unemployed, America and any other nation on the planet(like Kenya).

Obama would never want to improve public education - AND HE WON´T. Doing so, would rile up the Teacher´s Union and improve the minds of public school attendees (both of whom are part of his Core Base). An INFORMED and PATRIOTIC public school graduate is the VERY LAST THING he wants - those kind of people don´t vote for him and his political kind.

The fact is, Obama and his liberal followers don´t want a better, more informed, wealthier, patriotic America.

When will people, like this well-meaning but delusional columnist finally get it???

Obama is not on America´s side.

One other thing...

Obama and his liberal coterie done care to change. He is untouchable now because he continues to benefit from a rare confluence of circumstances which have him in the enviable position of:

HEADS I WIN - TALES YOU LOSE.

There isn´t anything he can do - right, wrong or indifferent from which he doesn´t benefit.

... and that´s just the way it is.

No - none of these problems will be solved because Obama´s objective is always to funnel more money to his constituent groups. ´´Better schools´´ means more money to public school unions, etc...

The centuries have shown that Afghanistan is perpetually and unchangeably unconquerable and uncivilized. GW Bush chased al Qaeda out, and that was about as good as it gets. The Taliban cannot be defeated due partially to one simple principle: You cannot prevail militarily against indigenous forces in a nation which is bordered by a nation(Pakistan)from which an enemy can enter to hurt you and then return to sanctuary. That is why Nixon found it necessary to attack Cambodia.

We should not have announced a withdrawal date(year) from Afghanistan, which was monumentally stupid, but neither should we stay there and have our people ground into the dirt at the enemy´s will as noted above. We should withdraw to one or more enclaves centering on major airports and defensible, withdraw our troops in an efficient and well planned manner, shoot our way out as necessary and get out of there.

(continuing) Elementary and high school education are not logically national-, but rather state and local functions. Federal intervention is a boondoggle and a welcome mat for bureaucratic and unresponsive agencies which simply commit our treasure, reward some local supporters, declare some kind of illusory transient victory and move on, leaving our students untaught as before. State programs which succeed educationally should be recognized and rewarded; those which don´t should be sanctioned by the states themselves, The feds should butt out.

Taxes: Our President does not lower taxes on the hiring class but rather raises them, not on any basis for believing that they need to be raised, but because of his own self-declared assumption that the evil rich should be taken down, while almost half of the country does nothing to help them carry the tax burden. This situation will not improve during the coming four years, but will lead inexorably to continued waste, despair and economic malaise, with national flight of capital and bankruptcy a possibility.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
