Phony in Chief
Creators Syndicate, Inc., by Thomas Sowell

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/9/2012 1:11:52 AM

When President Barack Obama and others on the left are not busy admonishing the rest of us to be "civil" in our discussions of political issues, they are busy letting loose insults, accusations and smears against those who dare to disagree with them. (Snip) Innumerable facts, however, show that it is our Commander in Chief who is Phony in Chief. A classic example was his speech to a predominantly black audience at Hampton University on June 5, 2007. That date is important, as we shall see. In his speech -- delivered in a ghetto-style accent that Obama doesn't use anywhere

Comments:
0bama the community agitator. The first rule of community agitating is to elevate hate. The second is to use lies whenever you can get away with them.

This demonstrates Obama's lack of respect for the Black community. Something about telling them it's rain.

And blacks wonder why they have limited opportunities when the speak ghetto or ebonics and wear pants below their buttocks.

Oh wait...they don't...just like O and his wife their opportunities were unlimited in one of the most racist policy in our history...Affirmative Action. "Don't need no content of character 'cause I be a people of color."

This should make headline news! Senator Obama voted against the waiver of the Stafford Act that would allowed unmatched funds to go to New Orleans without the 10 percent! This is simply amazing. In the 2007 tape before the Black ministers, he is lying, lying, lying. Romney needs to get this, it represents Obama's true character. I thought I was not going to be shocked anymore after learning of Obama's gay life in Chicago, but this is beyond the pale! Someone please get the hook, this guy is toxic with no conscience.

The interesting thing to me now is to watch Obama's reaction to having been revealed as a phony in the debate. He knows he's been revealed. And so he's falling back on a tactic that's worked for him before with his swooning fans, namely the self-deprecating comments. But it's falling flat. It's not working. So it will be interesting to see how he acts in the next debate.

I suspect he's hoping to come out aggressively and catch Romney off guard. But if Romney can outthink and outmaneuver his attacks, we could see a complete meltdown on camera.

'Phony in Chief
The Commander in Chief forces the eminent
Dr. Sowell to use the "P" word.'

Actually, 'Phony' isn't a P-word. The initial consonant, as pronounced, is 'Ph'. This comes out in english as an 'F' sound.

So, Dr. Sowell has used an F-word...

if he's such the healer, how come he's never showed up in Englewood (all black area of Chicago where most of the town's murders take place) and told the young hoodlums to put down the guns, and get a job.

Oh, and I heard Bambi the other day say we need more roads and bridges from the cities to the suburbs so the minorities can get to work. We have the CTA, which has busses running everywhere, even from the city to the suburbs! Working people ride them every day. Maybe Bambi should be giving out bus route guides.

OMG. FTA: The Congressional Record for May 24, 2007 shows Senator Barack Obama present that day and voting on the bill that waived the Stafford Act requirement. Moreover, he was one of just 14 Senators who voted against -- repeat, AGAINST -- the legislation which included the waiver.

I repeat: OMG! TO be fair, Barry probably didn't even know what he was voting on because he's much too important to actually read bills or anything./s

OP, another aspect of community organizing is to lead from behind. As the agitator, you don't want to be the face of the people you organized, aroused and motivated. When they get to city hall, you want them to have their own local spokesman. You lose credibility with the government entities and the media if you are an outside rabble rouser. You want that true group spokesman. So, again, you lead from behind, just as Obama almost intuitively does in his foreign policy. It comes naturally to him, from his experience, such as that is.

Obama is a shameless race baiter. He can easily be unmasked by three simple questions:

1. What did you mean when you pointed out that if you had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin? Is this how you diffuse a racially charged situation?
2. Why did you claim the Cambridge MA police acted "stupidly" (a word you never hear in politics) before all the facts were in?
3. Why did you tell the residents of New Orleans that they were denied their Stafford Act money when in fact they recieved it even though you voted against it?

So, regarding the Stafford Act, the Phony-in-Chief did one of two things during this rabble-rousing speech before a black audience at Hampton University in 2007.
... He lied to them, or
... He displayed his stupidity.

Whichever .... the moment defines Obama.
Thank you, Tom Sowell.

Holey cow! I'm shocked.

I'm not shocked about his vote against the Act because we've seen endless examples of Black-on-Black crime. This turned into a two-fer for Obama. He got to stick it to his "brothuhs", and then rile them up over it to put him in office.

I knew he was this immoral. I'm shocked because I didn't think he was this clever.

The most important thing about this article is the accurate description of what the euphism "community organizer" means. He was a professional stirrer up of grievances -- lying if necessary -- for political purposes. The communists among us have been doing this for 100 years. But "community organizer" sounds almost noble. People need to understand that that Hampton University tape is a tape of Obama being a "community organizer."

So simple. Constant agitator, as though he was a Party Line follower of the Communist Party. Hey, he doesn't have to BE one, acting like one is harmful enough. Communists Dalton Trumbo and Lillian Helman were both too famous and successful to actually have memberships in the ACP, the American Communist Party, paid for by Stalin. So, actually being a member of the Communists or Muslims is irrelevant, for the Phony in Chief, as long as he acts like them both. Agitate, create hate, bow, redistribute, that's enough damage for one phony.

The only thing that makes any sense to me is that someone local realized that the Bush administration was going to throw money at New Orleans and wanted the extra one dollar of local money on top of the ten from the government. And Obama felt safe in casting the vote knowing that the Press would never call him on it.

Thomas Sowell nails it yet again! There is another extension to the phonyness of Obama. He is the first president to politicize disaster relief in his refusal to aid Texas during the wild fires. We have had enough of community organizing ( rabble rousing ) and it is time for another president who will be president of all the people.

Sowell is right... the MSM dismiss Obama's race-baiting 2007 Hampton speech as "old news."

I've even seen some MSM Big Names insist they "covered" that speech.

Ok, let's grant (or stipulate, as Ms Stephanie Cutter says) that the MSM Bigs are technically correct --on the margins-- that they did "cover" the Hampton speech.

But if the MSM did "cover" it, they must have covered up the audio of Obama's phony ghetto accent.

And even more importantly, they must have covered up Obama's Big Lie about the Stafford $.

This would make a tremendously powerful commercial. I can see a clip of Obama lying about the aid to New Orleans, then the true facts and how he voted.

The only way Obama will win in November is if the Dems have everything in place to steal this race, like their buddy Hugo just did.

Thanks You TS for bringing this lie to the forefront again. This was brought to our attention last week, but didnt hear any more about it with all the Libyan turmoil and then the debate. But wherever I read about it, it was explained that O'Phony voted against it because it was included with additional spending for the war. Im certainly not excusing him, just clarifing the reason he voted like he did.. The fact that he went on to LIE to those in NO and to use the race card, only validates what he has done his entire life.. use color to stir up anger and resentment... the Frank Marshall Davis way.

His voting card was stolen.
Some radical right-winger borrowed it and voted in his name, just to make him look bad.
Reminds me of Bart Simpson.

White leftists use the black community by keeping them uneducated, uninformed/misinformed, angry and feeling entitled, thinking they are victims of the right or most white people in general, in poverty and dependent on the government, and lacking in self-confidence. Black leftists in positions of power or influence are tools of the white leftists (like trustees in jail) to keep their people down and in line with the program. They get their power and influence for doing such favors for the white leftist (slavemasters). The whole system was created under the false and insidious guise of pretending to "give them what they deserve for being kept down by the formerly blatantly racist system". The programs and policies the left has created under these false premises have only destroyed the majority of the black community and turned a large number of them into uneducated and violent tribalistic people who mostly kill their own. Yes, leftists did this on purpose. They are the racists who used to be the KKK, supporters of Jim Crow and poll taxes, segregationists, Copperheads (in the Civil War), Dixiecrats, etc. They have rather successfully deflected and projected their true behaviors onto others--especially those who would help and truly benefit the community--through various venues (public schools, the tool community leaders, mass media, etc.) But in truth they believe people of color are inferior but they have created such a strong network of propaganda and indoctrination that many people believe their lies. They don't want blacks to be successful (unless he/she is one of their lackeys). It is sickening. I try what I can to break this, but I am only one person fighting against 50 years of lies. We need everyone out there to make a difference.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
