On Tuesday night’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said President Barack Obama will show “who he really is” in his second term. According to Krauthammer, Obama is already making good on his March 2012 comments to then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility ” after Election Day. “I think what’s happening here is that in his second term, Obama is going to show who he really is,” Krauthammer said. “Remember what he said to the Soviet president, ‘After the election, I will be more flexible,’
Comments: You mean he hasn´t already? Oh man, we´re really in trouble.
The problem is not with him; it is with us, the voters. Isn´t it obvious? We do not want our children´s goodies handed to us by formerly successful leaders; we want them from people who have never accomplished anything in their lives. It is more symmetrical that way.
Yesterday on one of these threads I referred to his nibs as “Second Term President Flexible.” Today I’m thinking “Second Term Commissar Flexible” is even more appropriate. In order to get through the next four years, I wonder if I’m going to have to acquire a taste for blini and borscht. Gag me with a hammer and sickle? Nyet!
Some of my public union friends have just noticed that their social security payments are no longer being discounted. Their reaction: "What?!? Our taxes went up!" Those making over 200K just discovered that their medicare payment is going up .9%. It´s not even January 10 yet. For those of us who already knew ´who he really was´, it´s nice to see the sheeple wake up, but terrible to see this happen to the country.
OH,comeon the MSM knows he is amuslim comminunist taking our country down ,indebt to communist China submissive to Russia and letting Iran run over most of the middle east and in opinion making most of our people dependent on the government free stuff.
Instead of verbally beating up Dr Krauthammer and Karl Rove for nonsensical reasons , the far right should wake up and smell the coffee or the sulfur. The circular firing squad , which always seems to be initiated by the far right , only helps Obama. In 2014 , if the House flips to the Democrats ( they just need 18 more seats ) and the Democrat Senate increases their numbers further, there will be nothing..nothing..Republicans can do to halt Obama his last 2 years in office. Nothing. The very limited legislative options that Republicans have now -will disappear . That is a nightmare scenario , which will no doubt include Supreme Court Justices. Krauthammer makes the point that Hagel will devastate the military as Obama desires, without Obama getting his hands dirty. Republicans do not have enough members in the Senate to prevent Hagel from being confirmed . And maybe if the far right had listened to the advice of Krauthammer and Rove and not made so many unelectables the nominees, the Senate would not be so heavily Democrat and House Republicans ( and the country ) would be in a much stronger position.
Does anyone trust Obama to respect the Constitution? Tinfoil hat time. I have a sense of foreboding that Obama will use his second term to do things that would have been unthinkable in the past. He seems to be laying groundwork as we speak. I believe he is preparing for insurrection. Insurrection he instigated BTW. Therefore, controlling guns and/or ammo will be essential. That he is starting now is not surprising. Call me a kook but something like an assassination attempt would be all he would need to assume "temporary" dictatorial powers to freeze the sale of guns and ammo. These could be the longest four years in recent history.
Who even bothers to listen to the conservative blowhards anymore? We are screwed, plain and simple. Save your money, gun up, and prepare for the manure to strike the overhead. And don´t waste time on the conservative talk factory of Fox/Rush/Hannity/Ingraham et al.
Nothing makes me sicker than these holier-than-thou talking heads who loftily lectured all of us on the great historical significance of electing this first African-American (who turns out to be a half white Kenyan) and we should all embrace this and sing Kumbaya lest we be painted as partisan racists or whatever blah blah blah. Krauthammer was leading the pack on that theme and now dares to think he can explain to us who this guy really is. His opinion means nothing.
On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer unleashed a scathing critique of the Obama administration as more and more of the flaws of ObamaCare are brought to the forefront. Krauthammer explained that as we learn many promises of the laws promotion are being left unfulfilled, it is clear a “vast deception” was at play. “That is another truth emerging,” Krauthammer said. “I think what is happening here is not just a matter of what is affordable. It is a matter of a vast deception. The idea that you can keep your doctor, you keep your plan, was meant to say
Brit Hume said Tuesday that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s call for a fix to Obamacare is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for President Barack Obama and his administration. On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” network senior political analyst Hume explained to host Megyn Kelly that Feinstein’s shift, after a million Californians lost their health coverage, indicates the worst is yet to come. Many more Americans are expected to have their health insurance policies canceled. “This is as bad a political disaster as I have ever seen,” Hume said.
On Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, network senior political analyst Brit Hume speculated that President Barack Obama may not have been concerned about the rollout of his signature health care legislation, which has been fraught with problems. Hume noted all the problems with the law, which includes requirements for insurance coverage that the consumer couldn’t need and some of the failed promises made by Obama himself. “On ‘The Kelly File’ here on Fox News the other night, Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm and one of the designers of the Affordable Care Act
On Saturday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” Kate McKinnon played Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the show’s cold open and took on this month’s Obamacare rollout, which has been plagued by website troubles since its launch. “Hi, I’m Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of health under President Obama. Now, a lot of folks have been talking about our new health care enrollment website — how it’s been crashing and freezing and shutting down and stalling and not working and breaking and sucking,” McKinnon’s Sebelius said.
On Tuesday, Mediaite White House correspondent Tommy Christopher added another chapter to his ongoing self-promotional crusade masquerading as a career in journalism. And this time, it didn’t involve a shameless ploy to be an invited guest on whatever incarnation of Chris Hayes’ show MSNBC is currently airing. During Tuesday’s White House briefing on Tuesday, Christopher, whose name isn’t really “Tommy Christopher,” asked a question about President Barack Obama’s health-care reform law that incorporated his personal experiences with health insurance after his 2010 heart attack. “First of all, I don’t if you’re aware of this, but when I
Conservatives commentators Charles Krauthammer and Mark Levin traded barbs over Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s defund Obamacare tactics after Cruz’s 21-hour speech on the Senate floor. On Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to criticism from conservative radio host Mark Levin, who had taken to his radio show on Tuesday night to remind his listeners that Krauthammer once worked a speechwriter for the 1984 Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Walter Mondale. Krauthammer author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” mocked the notion his position
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter suggested Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrated the chemical weapons attacks in Syria to “make Obama look like a monkey.” Coulter, author of the forthcoming book “Never Trust a Liberal over 3 — Especially a Republican,” told Fox News host Sean Hannity that it’s “not looking good for Obama.” "[T]hese Democrats think being president is a Hollywood movie,” she said. “If they just come out and say it is in America’s national security interest, Americans will all swoon like they do in ‘The West Wing’ when Aaron Sorkin is writing it.”
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
