President Congeniality talks tough
Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/14/2013 10:02:17 PM

“I’m a pretty friendly guy,” President Obama said near the end of his White House news conference Monday afternoon. The claim might have been a touch more plausible if he hadn’t spent the bulk of the previous hour demonstrating just how adversarial he could be. Indeed, there was no precipitating event that led him to schedule the last-minute session in the East Room — lending credibility to the theory that he summoned reporters so he could bait Republicans. “If congressional Republicans refuse to pay America’s bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed,”

FTA: "His first-term experience made clear that he gained nothing from Republicans when he took a passive approach." And that was when? Obamacare discussions? Uh, no Republicans. "You have to sit in the back of the bus"? Yeah, that´s passive. Fiscal cliff? Milbank and Obama are both first class tools.

The only cuts the left is in favor of are slashing the Pentaton that is now fully engaged at humping Hagel through approval.
I don´t ever remember a gov´t dept.openly pushing for a nominee to be approved.

It´s oxymoronic for the Pentagon to be pushing for someone who will slash their budget.You´ll never see this in another gov´t dept.These cuts are really aimed at republican owned contractors.That´s why the leftist establishment at the Pentagon are all for it.I´m sure the 10,000 lawyers they have won´t get laid off.

Of course it doesn´t bother anyone that Obama´s engaging in another covert war in Africa without congress being notified.I guess we owe France a favor for bombing Libya,in another undeclared war.

Soc Sec is self-supporting, except it is cash poor. It is now paying benefits from its IOU stash because the cash flowing in each month is not enough. And guess where that money comes from...so, the threat of non- or reduced payments is real. And I say let it happen, instead sending up bills containing freezes and cuts to cover each month´s "needs" for entitlements. Let Harry say they´re DOA in the Senate...

Why is it that the SS checks and military pay will be delayed? Will Obama´s paycheck be on time? Will Congressman and Senators get their checks direct deposited right on schedule? What about government employees, will they get their checks right on time? What about welfare checks, got to have those on time! Never a threat to any of these, just the military and the old folks.

FTA: "... “If congressional Republicans refuse to pay America’s bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed,”…"

That is really getting to be repetitious. The first words out of his mouth anytime there is talk of budget control.

Of the ´47%´ the group that draws SS and veterans benefits are probably the only legitimate group getting government checks. How about the ´35%´ of the ´47%?´
How about delaying their checks. Oh, wait!!! THEY might throw a hissy fit!

I´m confused by his statement about the pubs not collecting a ransom in exchange for not crashing the economy. We don´t want the economy to crash and if obama keeps up his spending like he is, it probably will
crash.

It´s obvious his handlers have instilled in him how important it is to continue spending out the wazoo to bring the US to its knees. Spending cuts? Ha! He doesn´t want to go there under any conditions.

How about the way he began his patronizing to the liberal reporters by using their first names? Fox did a great job of doing the split screen of both parties when each reporter kept asking about his non-negotiating stance which showed his sour expressions.

Bamster is getting more weird by the day/conjuring Captain Queeg, when he says he´s a "friendly guy" and "loves a good party" considering the condition the nation is in.

Note that Milbank, unsurprisingly, does NOT criticize BO´s message; just the way in which it was delivered. He doesn´t like Republicans and BO is obviously not reaching out to them. This is an observation that we are in for four more years of gridlock, which should have been starkly obvious before the election.

The question to BO is, "What will you do differently in a 2nd term to get things done?" The answer is, "Nothing!" , except be even more obnoxious. Milbank refers to FDR as approving but the outcome of FDR´s policies were a prolonged and deepened Depression. So yes, bullies and thugs can get their way but that doesn´t mean the outcome is desirable.

And of couse Obozo managed to work in the idea that "He won" a few times. Not the actual words, but the impression was clearly there.

Somehow, he seems to believe that he was elected to be King and to blazes to any congress or federal court system.

I knew he was lying when he said he would have a conversation. He doesn´t understand that he needs to negotiate - and, it doesn´t mean - I win, you lose. Although, he did mention that he won the election, once again, as though we were unaware. Maybe we should refer to him as Prez. Snark

We have seen only the beginning of this. Obama knows that the ability of his administration to crank out thousands of dictatorial regulations will overwhelm the ability of the courts to process the lawsuits challenging them. As long as the press and the Senate have his back, he can do whatever he wants. And rest assured: He will.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
