Public Gloomy Ahead
of Obama Inaugural

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/18/2013 11:37:08 PM

When Barack Obama first took the oath of office in 2009, he enjoyed around 70% approval ratings in the polls. His historic election had triggered a groundswell of hope and good feelings about his first term. By overwhelming majorities, Americans were hopeful about the future. Just days before his second inauguration, however, a new poll from The Hill finds that the public is much more pessimistic about the next four years. Just 18% of voters believe that Obama´s first term exceeded their expectations. 80% feel the first term fell below or simply met

You know, I still can´t get my head around this election. There is something so WRONG about the whole thing. Massive fraud, an incredible acceptance by the Romney camp -("oh I lost? OK.). Dems don´t do that. No One is excited about the Inauguration. The whole thing is just weird.

#3, several people said that to me the day after the election. These folks, Romney voters but working in Obama environments, commented that no one was happy with Obama´s re-election. Will we ever know anything about this creep?

Not gloomy. Utter disbelief and PO´d that this incompetent is POTUS.
Not in a million years did I ever think I´d see this day. And two terms yet!

We survived FDR, just barely, and his grimy fingernails still grasp at us, but this guy is something else. And it´s not pretty.

Where is our Reagan? Where is our Churchill?
Where are our statesmen?

I don´t even know how you conduct a poll like this when half the country had no expectations of him the first time. You have to be a real sap to believe any of Obama´s deceitful,false promises of Utopianism.

Still,there´s enough people clinging to Obama because the alternative is getting a job,something unemployed leftists dread.

If conservatives got duped by a false god president,they would be the first ones to come out and attack the person,yet no one on the left will call Obama out on his composite of failures.

It should have been a tip off when Obama bowled a 34.

Oddly, no Democrat has demanded that the Obama Inaugural be declared a gun-free zone, so Dear Leader can show his solidarity with "the children". Come on, Democrats - show us how much you care and demand a Gun-Free Obama Inaugural! Be honest for once, and show us how good your intentions are..

Never mind his speech !
Keep a close watch on his behavior. He is spending us into oblivion, he has messed up foreign policy, he is attacking our Liberty and dismanteling the Constitution, and starving our military of necessary funds, while performing social experiments sure to hurt the military. He refuses to close our border and wants to play Santa Claus to illegals and give free things to his people, all the while squeezing those of us still left out there with paying jobs, and messing up royally the greatest Medical Care system in the World. That is what he has DONE..trust the behavior which darn sure doesn´t match the words.

Can´t wait to miss his "speech". I predict it will be the same head-swiveling, lisping blather we´ve grown used to. Look for the same cliches: best is ahead of us, accomplished much fixing the mess I inherited, still far to go, safer schools for kids, etc. One I don´t expect he´ll used is "focused like a laser".

I´ve been doing a lot of reading and thinking since Romney lost, trying to make some sense out of what appears senseless. My current theory is that psychologically our nation is mimicking Germany pre-WW II. The irrational has been embraced by the majority of voting Americans who have given unlimited power to those in charge as long as they champion the irrational. Carl Jung would say this is the result of not consciously acknowledging the shadow (the evil within all humans - not believing it exists) which will inevitably lead to man´s shadow getting stronger and manifesting in the world since it has been repressed / not recognized and dealt with by the individual.

Long story short - the only way this can now play out since a critical mass has been reached is a whole lot of really bad stuff has to happen until such time that the irrational has been exhausted and the survivors stare in disbelief over the wasteland their ignorance created.

A complete revamp of the voting process is called for. Picture Voter ID. Certify that voter rolls are purged of dead voters. No more early voting where SEIU can ferry voters to the polls for days on end. At least this would be a start. And yes, I´m suggesting the election was stolen.

Contradictory on its face: 18% to 80% in the polls, yet zero won it by a "narrow but solid" margin.

The election was more than stolen. It had been engineered at least since the debates. Zero could hardly muster the gumption to argue with Romney at the first debate because he knew it was in the bag then.

Unfortunately, everything in America must now be postponed while we get our vote back.

The election was engineered. It was our vote that was stolen, and with it, the lives of our fathers who bought it for us with their futures.

This is America´s blood libel.

I grimaced when I read he won "by a solid majority." Just this week I talked to another hard-core Democrat who said Romney was the first Republican she had ever voted for. Obama ´won´ by voter fraud....pure and simple....he knows it but still wants to lord his ´victory´ over all of us and shove his agenda down our throats.

Since #22 believes I may be on to something, let me paraphrase what Jung would probably say about our present situation:

Loss of roots and lack of tradition just ask for neurosis and thus prepares the ground for mass hysteria which will result in individual liberty vanishing and terrorization to begin.

It is astounding and depressing to see how simple and gullible the majority of Americans have become.

There was a time when Americans were known as sharp bargainers and hard to fool or get the better of.

Now we look out and see a nation largely peopled by drooling nincompoops, eager for a chance to follow a black-skinned charlatan because it feels good and proves (to themselves) that they aren´t racists.

I simply do not believe that this "narrow" victory was anywhere near "solid." For those of us old enough, harken back to the 1960 election and review the IL results which "gave" us JFK.

19 - it is really simple. Romney was a lousy candidate. He might have been the best guy for the job, but a lousy candidate. His campaign did everything they could to disintermediate the Conservative voters, and he never was going to overcome the rich, evil white guy label that everyone knew was going to be coming and he´s as dynamic as milquetoast.

With Romney, the Repubs didn´t have someone who was going to be able to overcome the fraud, and ground game that the Dems had set up.

And now, the Republican Party is movijng faster, following in his footsteps, disintermediating the Conservatives in the party, and doing nothing but appearing to be "almost Democrats".

Think it´s ugly now. Just wait till 2015.

#19/28 – I have also been trying to make sense of the senseless, and concur with your current theory. The parallel between our times and pre-WWII Germany has been pointed out by many Ldotters over the last four years, but your reference to Jung provides a explanation for our current societal psychology, and its inevitable chilling conclusion.

We are all well aware of the progressive’s century-long dismantling of our American traditions, and tearing our cultural roots from the soil of liberty. They were able to accomplish this by convincing people that evil does not exist and therefore need not be acknowledged or addressed by moral discipline. I believe Pope Leo XIII warned that the greatest accomplishment of satan in modern times was convincing people he did not exist. He said this at the turn of the 20th century. This is not a new problem.

I remember the nuns in school teaching us about the importance of a daily examination of conscience, including identifying our motives and particular temptations. We were expected to know our weaknesses and to avoid “the near occasions of sin.” We were to be responsible for the content of what we chose for entertainment; reading, TV, movies, activities. If we gave in to our moral weaknesses, if we did not resist temptation, if we followed unbridled passions, we would experience the “just consequences.”

And so as #28 observes, “Loss of roots and lack of tradition just ask for neurosis and thus prepares the ground for mass hysteria which will result in individual liberty vanishing and terrorization to begin.”

God have mercy on America.

Like many I am really bothered by the election (Fraudlently?) by Obama.
1.) according to the Daily Mail @ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2210323/Obama-family-costs-taxpayers-1-4BILLION-year.html
The Obamas cost this Country $1.4 Billion a year.
2.) No one EVER discusses his Health? WHY?
3.) Notice how he never seems to stay around the WH very often or for long periods?
4.) Wonder why they have ordered a large number of buses to block his parade route down Penna. Ave after he´s sworn in?
5.) There was only a brief mention and then nothing; on the fact that they found a bullet in the door face of the Truman Balcony last year. ( where Zippy goes to sneak a smoke.)
6.) For a sitting President, his behavior seems to suggest that he is running scared as hell, and afraid for himself.
7.)It all seems to point to the fact that Zippy has to wonder IF something were to happen ( ala Pres. Reagan) WOULD those SSA´s really step up and take a hit for an avowed Socialist Community Organizer Commie?
8.) NO wonder he bobs and weaves around...I would not be him for all the tea in China.

On OReilly last night he talked about the inevibility of the economy crashing soon because of the unsustainable debt, and how all our money and assets will be worthless. What I want to know is, why don´t members of the media care about this - they all have a lot of assets. I only conclude that they don´t believe it will happen, they engage in magical thinking.

I too notice that Obama spends very little time at the Whitehouse, he gallivants around far too much to be able to be really running the country. Therefore, it´s Jarrett and all the toadies and ivy league pointyheads making decisions. Then you look at how idiotic so many congress members are, and we get a realistic picture of what our government is comprised of, and it is sickening.

I have been robbed of my hope and my pride in this country, and I know the next four years will be hell. How he won re-election I will never, ever understand. But it has sealed our fate, I´m afraid.

#42´s questions are excellent ones, and if we had true journalists, some of them might be answered. Just as other Ldotters, I am still in disbelief that Obama won re-election. However, I do remember him stating very confidently that he would win - it struck me as odd at the time he said it because his and Romney´s numbers were so close. There was a certainty when he said it, and it wasn´t false bravado. Everything about the man is creepy.

The next four years will be hell and then the next four years after that will be even worse. Hillary Clinton... Andrew Cuomo....? Who will the Republican idiots run? That fat slob Chris Christie? Maybe they´ll run that total surrender monkey, idiot John McCain again!!! We need to find a REAL candidate. I don´t know, at this point who that would be, but it needs to someone who is not a carbon copy of the Demonrats.

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
seizing tax refunds
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

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface
Breitbart Texas, by Bob Price    Original Article

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. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

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

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

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

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
