Psaki worried Obama will
be too ‘professorial’ for
couch-sitting beer drinkers

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

President Obama’s campaign spokeswoman said she’s concerned Obama will sound too “professorial” to resonate with the low-information voters tuning into the presidential campaign for the first time during this week’s debate. “[W]hat the American [people] are looking for is not just a professorial list of facts or accomplishments or even goals,” Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said yesterday as part of her ongoing, almost-comical attempt to lower expectations going into the debates. She then lamented that Obama “has a tendency to give longer, substantive answers.” Psaki’s concern that Professor Obama will appear

Comments:
Too professional?? Oh puhleeze. What she really meant to say is 0bama will appear as usual, cold, arrogant and disdainful of the American people. You can just see all those photos of the arrogant jerk with his nose stuck up in the air.

I keep hearing bits of his campaign stops. Which English dialect is he using? Half of what he's saying makes no sense.

And - he speaks with the same cadence as some of the black preachers I've seen on TV.

Not so professorial ... maybe where Psaki went to college, but not where I went.

We have experienced three years and nine months of Zero's destruction of the economy, the dismantling of the Constitution, collapse of any semblance of foreign policy and the obliteration of personal freedom.
What sane person with any common sense would believe anything the serial liar would have to say about what he (Zero) is going to do. We have seen his demolition trail. It ain't pretty!

Regarding the debate on Wednesday, Obama will lie his way through, as usual. He`ll attempt to put Romney on the defensive by saying he`s going to `save` Medicare and SSI, thus implying Romney/Ryan are against saving those programs.

Exactly #21, lengthy and convoluted answers also serve to mask deception while attempting to appear informed and candid.

I would like to ask Obama, "How many of the "Uh's" in your responses does it take to reach the "professorial" threshold, or is it because you lose your way without a teleprompter?"

He gives long answers all right but I would never describe them as substantive. He seems to think if he makes his answers long enough and convoluted enough you will lose track of the original question. He delivers nonsense with a condescending, domineering attitude. He tries to browbeat his listeners into accepting this nonsense by de3livering it with great conviction.

He has spoken and there is no more to be said.

I think I know what "too professorial" means.

What Obama "knows" amounts to what he took from the writings, rantings and theories of long dead collectivists. All he has to offer against Romney's decades of real world success and experience, are more worthless promises. His mindless adherence to naive ideas that only work on paper calls into question his supposedly superior intelligence. He really thought his ideas would work!

Smart power for the 21st century
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Lanny Davis    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/9/2014 10:46:27 PM     Post Reply
By the turn of the 21st century, it was clear that a new approach to the use of American power to protect our national interests and values was necessary. At the risk of some over-simplification, by the end of former President George W. Bush’s second term, essentially two lines of thinking had emerged. On the right was a preference for the use of “hard power” — the use of military force and intervention to protect U.S. interests. On the left was a growing bias against military intervention of any kind and in favor of “soft power” — economic aid and

Conservatives are increasingly targeting House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, arguing that he has abandoned conservative principles and protesting his planned meeting with moderate and liberal Republicans. Mr. Cantor, who just a few years ago was seen as a champion for conservatives in the House and a possible candidate to replace House Speaker John A. Boehner, now is viewed with suspicion, said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican.“I think that Boehner can survive the discontent that the tea party and the more conservative element of the Republican Party has, but I don’t think that is true of Cantor,” Mr. Rohrabacher told The

A federal court Wednesday ordered the University of North Carolina-Wilmington to promote and give $50,000 in back pay to a conservative professor in what is described as a landmark anti-discrimination case. The restitution was ordered three weeks after a jury found the university guilty of retaliating against criminology professor Mike Adams, a popular conservative columnist on Townhall.com, after denying him a promotion to full professor in 2006. “This ruling sends a message to public universities: Academic freedom isn’t just for the Left, it’s a constitutional right for all professors — even Christian conservatives,” said David French, senior counsel at the conservative American

Immigration reform is one of the most pressing civil rights issues of the modern era, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said on Wednesday. Lewis, a civil rights icon and the only surviving speaker from the 1963 March on Washington, said Congress needs to pass reform — and that the American public must pressure it to do so. "The most pressing need for young people and for older Americans, for all of us, is to move with all deliberate speed to create a truly multicultural, multiracial democratic society.

Terry Branstad signed a proclamation for Muslim Recognition Day in Iowa, something the Republican chief executive first did in 1992 during his previous tenure as governor. About 50 Iowa Muslims joined him in the governor´s formal office and applauded during a signing ceremony.

Drivel, drivel, toil and snivel… Two months ago, I predicted that Jeb Bush would be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. The case was simple. With Chris Christie’s nascent presidential campaign fatally imploding and the rest of the GOP field too weak to stop the Hillary Clinton juggernaut, a panicked Republican establishment was bound to turn to a known, safe, and relatively centrist quantity to serve as its standard bearer. There are many more words in the article but that first paragraph was all that he really wanted to say: “Real conservative candidates weak, Hillary JUGGERNAUT!” “Juggernaut” in this

Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan
developing Obamacare alternative
Washington Examiner, by David M. Drucker    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/9/2014 8:49:07 PM     Post Reply
Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Paul Ryan are collaborating on an Obamacare alternative and could announce the proposal as early as this month, according to Republican sources. Both Republicans have been regularly engaged in pushing legislation on major issues — and both have made it a habit to form cross-chamber partnerships to further those endeavors. But this particular partnership is notable given the high-profile nature of health care reform and that Rubio, Florida´s junior senator, and Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman from Wisconsin, are both considered possible contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Former President Jimmy Carter joined MSNBC’s Chris Matthews for an interview on Hardball Wednesday and made some news by saying he does not think the United States should bomb Iran even if they were to succeed in building an operational nuclear weapon. This statement differs not only from recent comments made by former Vice President Dick Cheney but also from the stated position of President Barack Obama. “I never have felt that Israel had a capability militarily to go 1,200 miles or more and bomb Iran effectively and then return back to Israel,” said of Cheney’s suggestion that Israel could

House Ways and Means Committee Republicans aren´t ruling out the use of the chamber´s "inherent contempt" authority if Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to act on the panel´s accusations against former IRS official Lois Lerner. The committee voted Wednesday to seek an investigation of whether Lerner violated federal law by using her power to ensure Right-leaning groups were targeted for extra scrutiny by the agency, giving misleading information during a probe of the matter by the Treasury Department´s inspector general and using her personal email to conduct official business, which could have resulted in the disclosure of confidential taxpayer information.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen.
