At this stage in our nation’s decline, does anyone still care what Barack Obama thinks or says about “the state of the union”? I think not. More than 52 million people watched Obama’s first State of the Union in 2009. It has been all downhill ever since –– with 48 million viewers in 2010, 43 million in 2011, and just 38 million last year. That’s a decline of 28 percent in four years. The president will almost certainly lay an even bigger egg this year than he did last year. If the New York Times is correct in the preview
Obama´s popularity is way overblown.The TV ratings for the inauguration were way down.People are tired of his smoke and mirrors promise and he´s nothing but a front man for the ruling class liberal oligarchy anyway. Republicans aren´t gaining any ground because they´re afraid of the media.They were doing good for a while there,especially in the 2010 midterms but they have lost that momentum.
This should be a Must Read. It´s time to bring the Obama balloon down to earth.
FTA: According to the exit polls, 77 percent of voters said that the economy was in bad shape, and most of those disaffected with the nation’s economic performance said that they believed that Romney would do a better job than Obama in managing the economy (51-47 percent). Despite that, the overwhelming majority of voters (81-19 percent) said that they believed that Obama “cares more about people like me than Romney"[my bold].
This begs the question: did Obama steal the election or does the U.S. now have the most stupid voters that money can buy?
During the next four years it needs to be pointed out several times a week that Obama doesn´t give a rat´s arse. If he did, the supply of gasoline would become plentiful, which would lower costs for food and other products as well as for travel. Power plants that provide most of our energy would not be closing because Obama is driving them out of business. The alternative energy is not perfected or readily available; thus the cost to the consumer will increase.
All of Obama´s policies will mean more jobs lost and costs will rise. In other words, Obama is putting the middle class in chains. There is a good possibility that the middle class will shrink severely and more people will slip into lower classes due to his policies by 2016.
With a gutless congress and a corrupt supreme court, he doesn´t have to "walk on water". He has assumed powers that were not meant for a potus but rather for a dictator and the people, now, are his minions.
In times past, during the growth of this great nation, --out west where the men were men and the women were glad of it, --had Obama appeared on the horizon and rumbled into town in a gaudily painted covered wagon wearing a long tailed coat and garish top hat, --and started trying to sell his brand of prosperity producing snake oil, --this fake *fakir would have left town over yonder horizon, --his wagon reduced to a pile of smoldering coals and wearing black tar and white chicken feathers.
Ah, for those days of simple and speedy justice dispensed by honest people, --instead of these days with the likes of Chrissy Matthews peeing down his leg, --Jeremiah Wright screaming for God´s damnation on our beloved country, --and the Chicago thugs in a trance over Cloward, Piven, and Saul Alinsky.
*fa·kir - noun Definition of Fakir 1 a Muslim mendicant : dervish 2 impostor; especially : swindler
Oh, BTW, along with many here, I never thought he did!
Pointless article. We´ve been reading similar pieces since 2010, and what have they really meant? Absolutely nothing. Obama´s audacity and demagoguery have continued to work for him.
A nation of idiots who actually believe this ice-blooded Marxist "cares about" them will get what it deserves. Unfortunately, those of us who know better have been carried along to the brink of destruction, and our freedoms and prosperity are only an executive order or two away from being extinguished, State of the Union TV ratings notwithstanding.
No group put him "over the top". He took the presidency by fraud, chicanery and the outright theft of the election. The republican branch---no, twig---of government was too crippled by the Stockholm Syndrome to do anything about it. Welcome to the USSA.
No intention to watch pREZ Crapweasel deliver another soliloquy. [A dramatic or literary form of discourse in which a character talks to himself or herself or reveals his or her thoughts without addressing a listener.]
Just another event designed not to inform but massage a malignant, narcissistic personality.
A good article, but like someone has said, it won´t matter. The takers are too happy to care, the middle class are too busy trying to hang on and don´t have time to get involved, Obummer´s rich friends are getting richer and an anchor at CNN proved just how stupid the MSM are when she asked Bill Nye the Idiot if Global Warming is responsible for the comet that is on a close encounter to earth this Friday!
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006–07, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries, or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Ever since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such
After three months and more than 50 phone calls, John Gisler gave up on buying coverage through HealthCare.gov. Gisler wanted to purchase a plan for his 45-year-old son, who has a rare degenerative condition affecting his coordination and speech. His current coverage through Utah’s high-risk insurance pool plan ends Dec. 31. By that time, the Obama administration expects enrollees to transition into health plans sold through the new health-care law. But so far, Gisler hasn’t succeeded in purchasing coverage -- but not for a lack of effort. “We’ve had three separate applications that failed to make it through,” Gisler says. “I have a
Remember when Bill Clinton was twice elected President as a "New Democrat" who wanted to get along with people in the private economy? Nowadays even writing in favor of ideas that Mr. Clinton supported can get you branded a heretic and banished from impolite liberal society. Witness the political tempest that blew up in response to the December 3 op-ed we published by Democrats Jon Cowan and Jim Kessler of the Third Way think tank. The former aides to Andrew Cuomo and Chuck Schumer, respectively, would be considered liberals in most places outside of the Harvard faculty lounge. But the campus
Maybe he went into sugar shock over a Danish pastry. The president of the United States, leader of the free world, standard-bearer for everything upright, good and wholesome about the nation he leads, lost his morality, his dignity and his mind, using the solemn occasion of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday to act like a hormone-ravaged frat boy on a road trip to a strip bar. In front of 91 world leaders, the mourning nation of South Africa and Obama’s clearly furious wife, Michelle, the president flirted, giggled, whispered like a recalcitrant child and made a damn fool of himself at first
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
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
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
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!”
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.
