President Barack Obama: A tale
of two press conferences

Daily Caller, by Jim Treacher

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/18/2013 7:49:23 AM

President Barack Obama 4/15/13: (video) President Barack Obama 4/17/13: (video) Question: Why is President Barack Obama so much angrier and more animated about losing a Senate vote than about somebody bombing the Boston Marathon? Maybe it has something to do with this: The Senate’s effective rejection of President Barack Obama’s post-Newtown gun control bill robs the Democratic Party of an important tool for trying to regain a majority in the House in November 2014. “Are they serious?” a visibly angry Obama demanded of opponents of the Toomey/Manchin Senate bill.

FTA:“Are they serious?” a visibly angry Obama demanded of opponents of the Toomey/Manchin Senate bill.

Yeah, serious about the Constitution that you and your leftist cronies are determined to ignore and undermine.

Barry is all about extending his little ideology of state control.

He could not care less about results (saving lives, preserving individual freedoms).

False anger from the man who facilitated Fast and Furious.

Very astute analysis!

Everthing Obama does these days is intended to take back the House in 2014 so he can ram through more unwelcome legislation (gun control, climate change, more spending). The real world (terrorism, the national debt, Afghanistan, North Korea, Iran) will just have to wait. . .

We have two Democrat senators here in Michigan. I know their offices got an earful on this subject. Regardless of how this State votes, it´s a gun loving, second amendment loving place.

If you watch the videos (I know, I know, who can bear it?), the biggest difference is that, regarding Boston, the President is simply reading off of a script. Regarding gun control, he´s saying what he truly believes.

Watch the videos; they are illuminating. Notice how indifferent is Obama regarding the victims in the April 15 press statement. Could he be any more indifferent? He doesn´t even try to sound like he cares. It´s as if he´s ordering some take out food that he doesn´t really want. Just a chore for him to pretend to care.

Since the POTUS and VPOTUS have crisscrossed across America (at enormous cost to the taxpayers, btw) ghoulishly demanding that the slaughter of innocents in Connecticut justify a collapse of constitutionally-guaranteed individual liberties, Obama is so terribly vexed that we would prefer not to concur.

I tell you, if left to his own devices, Obama would indeed have us toiling out in the rice paddies.

Obama had to do something to get the Press off of the real story of the day: the arrest of the Saudi who was involved in the bombing. Wonder how the FBI feels about this. The Obama administration will cover this up just like they did Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and any other mess the Obama´s make.

There is one thing that keeps Obama from declaring himself king. The Second Amendment and those who support it. He will do everything in his power to circumvent it. Everything!

the constitution was written by those who were wise to the power seeking individuals of the past. This trait of behavior repeats itself over and over again.

So for those who say the constitution is old and does not apply to today they don´t understand the meaning. Evil exists. All through history the pattern reveals itself.
The writers of the constitution knew about this manipulation and took great measure to
rule against it. Obama complained the constitution tells what the government can´t do, he wants it to tell people what to do and he wants to be the one to do it.

Perhaps he was p%##ed because the Saudi diplomat reiterated the rules to which he must adhere. The Saudi national would be released to be deported. The oil $$$ has bought and paid for Washington to be its lapdog. Conspiracy??? Just sayin´.

A coincidence I cannot ignore, the appearance of the Ricin letters immediately after the Boston bombing. No news about ricin for many years.

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors
New York Times, by Andrew Pollack    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:07:22 AM     Post Reply
Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,
then laments gridlock
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 5:09:52 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain
Among First to Abandon Ship
ABC News, by Joohee Cho & Dan Good    Original Article

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 4:54:22 AM     Post Reply
Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Those ‘rogue’ agents
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Even Hillary Clinton Isn’t Sure What

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results. President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.
