Why Obama can´t wave
away this scandal

New York Post, by John Podhoretz

Original Article

Posted By:scottyboy, 11/23/2013 9:41:19 AM

People are puzzled: Why would Barack Obama have lied about how wonderfully everything was going to go with ObamaCare when officials in his administration knew perfectly well that disaster was going to strike? In one sense, the answer is simple: At the time, just before Oct. 1, Republicans were insisting ObamaCare be delayed or defunded. The president and his team weren’t going to give the enemy the satisfaction of agreeing — or the potent ammunition that would have come from a rueful admission the system wasn’t ready. Today, a bipartisan agreement to delay ObamaCare seems like it would have been a pretty

Comments:
Another good one from Podhoretz. This piece could be used as an outline for impeachment on several grounds.
The things the media have allowed this administration to get away with boggles the mind.

He is getting away with it-his poll drop has leveled off and he STILL is not below 40 on RCP average: Today: "The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama´s job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove (see trends)."

My guess? Obama was unaware he was lying; no one on his staff told him directly he was lying; someone else is in charge of that; he only found out about the lying when he was made aware of it yesterday.

And, besides - you misunderstood what he was saying - but he didn´t myzzle you. /s

Barack has a narcissistic personality disorder. Narcissists surround themselves with people who give them constant praise and adulation, whether earned or not. His white mother did that, as did his white grandparents. he was ´special´ and compensated for deep feelings of inferiority with narcissism.
Narcissists lie because normal rules don´t apply to them. The lie for the fun of ´getting over´ on others, or to gain an advantage, have no sense of guilt, have inflated opinions about themselves. two weeks into his presidency, barack told a reporter, "I´m pretty good at this job."
And when aught in a lie, the narcissist shrugs it off.

MEANWHILE, Obamacare is moving forward, people are being enrolled through insurance companies and various other schemes and the rest of us sit around believing that O-care will implode......will it? Will the administration let it, or will they just pour more money into it until it is intractable? American fiddles while the country burns.

I don´t know. It sounds like a pretty good argument that he can get away with this scandal (just like he did all the rest of the scandals). True this is more of a two-by-four than a straw but with all his support Obama is one tough camel.

I´ll say it again, all this does NOT matter, he HAS gotten away with it, as planned. Some pundits out there are actually talking about this Marxist fraud resigning. Hell will freeze over before that happens. He TOLD us he would transform this country, and everything is going as planned. It amazes me how far in the sand these supposedly intelligent pundits are. They don´t even see what has happened right before their eyes. I am in bitter tears over it. EVERYTHING has changed. It´s over.

On top of which, it may yet work.

Second post apologies...
I saw a clip of barack talking about JFK, and barack said JFK was transforming America.
That is nonsense. JFK was trying to preserve America - he was more anti-communist than President Reagan, and cut taxes in a very conservative way. Barack also said the cold war started during JFK´s term of office. Have we ever had such an ignorant man as president??

Clinton White House’s Conspiracy
Theory of Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories
ABC News, by Chris Good    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 4/18/2014 9:02:54 PM     Post Reply
If Bill Clinton’s political camp was known for believing the right wing was out to get him, then this undated memo from his administration codified his team’s suspicions. The memo was released today in the latest, thousands-of-pages-long batch of Clinton White House documents to be posted online by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum. The National Archives have been releasing tranches of Clinton documents, previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act, every two weeks this spring. Reportedly authored by Chris Lehane, then a young White House aide who would later serve as press secretary for

KUALA LUMPUR - About 100 Malaysian Muslim activists protested on Friday outside the US embassy against the coming visit by President Barack Obama, denouncing him as an enemy of Islam. The demonstration underscored the delicate nature of Obama´s trip to Muslim-majority Malaysia, which will make him the first siting US president to visit in nearly half a century, a period marked by mutual distrust. The protesters marched to the embassy in Kuala Lumpur from a nearby mosque after Friday afternoon prayers, shouting "God is great" and "Obama is the enemy of the Prophet Muhammad." They also bore placards and banners

An email from Monica Lewinsky was omitted from the Clinton library’s latest document dump for privacy reasons. Every two weeks this spring, the National Archives has been releasing documents from Clinton’s presidency through The William J Clinton Presidential Library & Museum in Little Rock, Ark. The documents were previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act. The library posted the latest batch online today, linking to thousands of pages of official memos and communications between aides.

These new cow fart packs from

This is not a joke, but it is funny. It´s also practical. Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. In other words, cow fartpacks are here.(snip)Here´s how the fartpacks work: tubes run from the backpack into the cows´ rumen (or biggest digestive tract). They extract about 300 liters of methane a day, which is enough to run a car or a fridge for about 24 hours. Pablo Soranda, INTA press officer, told FastCo.Exist that the project is more about making a point than

Given their druthers, some Kansas high school students and their parents said they would rather keep their graduation day just a family affair instead of expanding the guest list to include first lady Michelle Obama. The criticism erupted after the Topeka, Kansas school district announced Thursday that the first lady would speak at a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools on May 17 at an 8,000-seat arena. Parents attending a school board meeting urged it to reconsider the decision.(snip) "They´ve taken the glory and shine from the children and put on Mrs. Obama. She doesn´t know our kids."

McAuliffe to speed
felons´ rights restoration

Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to announce today that he will shrink the time violent felons must wait to seek reinstatement of their voting rights and will remove some offenses from that list. The policy slated to take effect April 21 comes on top of years of work to streamline the process, and aims to make the system easier to understand and to allow more felons to petition the state more quickly. In a series of changes to the state´s restoration of rights process, McAuliffe plans to collapse the application waiting period from five to three years for people convicted of violent felonies

A triumph for the Boston Bombers

The two bombers who killed and maimed innocent people at the Boston marathon a year ago had come as refugees to America, from conflicts that America and her people did nothing to cause. They had been granted the privileges of a law-abiding democracy, including education, health care and the precious freedoms for which Americans have fought in two world wars. Their situation was incomparably better than it would have been, had they stayed behind in Chechnya. Among the many privileges that they enjoyed religious freedom was by no means the least important. They were able to attend their local mosque, to take part in its services and

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
