Obama the intimidator
Washington Times, by Gary Bauer

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/23/2012 1:05:20 AM

One night last February, President Obama was attending a million-dollar fundraiser in Florida when he spotted a local Republican activist he knew was close to Marco Rubio, the star Republican senator from that state. (Snip) “Well,” Mr. Obama replied as he moved in a little closer, “tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked.” Most Americans have an image of Mr. Obama as an unflappable, smooth and above-the-fray president. There used to be some truth to that perception, but it has evaporated slowly over the past four years as a meaner, nastier and more combative Mr.

Comments:
0bama likes to imagine he's tough. What has he ever accomplished without the leftist thugs of Chicago and their money behind him? Once into the White House they have subverted various gov agencies to their purposes. We see some of the effects in the growing scandals and investigations.

I would have loved it if the activist had said "physician heal thyself".

Oh, puhleeze. Obama's body language was a dead give away. Lordy, it was like he was sitting in the Principal's office. Yeah but, but, and but, but.

Obama, give one clear reason why you and your staff watched and listened while the Benghazi attack took place and did nothing?

Seven freakin hours--and you knew and you watched--what kind of creeps are you?

On first meeting world leaders I imagine Obama felt quite intimidated and quite small. As time went on he became more confident. If he met one of them who was shy I think Obama would verbally beat him up, give him the eye and the fore-finger. I do not believe he is a diplomat by any stretch of the imagination.

Romney met the threshold of being a suitable replacement for Obama after the first debate and there isn't/wasn't much room for Obama to make a dent in that. His reluctance to lay out a 2nd term plan is killing him,even if he doesn't realize it. Bailing out GM and killing BinLaden doesn't help people pay their rent,nor does free birth control pills.

Obama's playing to the lowest common denominator voter and there aren't enough to carry the day unless he steals it with armies of illegal aliens.

There's no question that latinos put him over the top last time and could do so again unless there's some serious poll watching going on. Early and absentee balloting helps the underground vote because they don't have to show their face.

The media is so desperate to protect Obama,they're bragging about him being tied in an NBC poll which probably has +8 dem respondents.

I understand the point of the article, however, the last word that comes to my mind when I look at Barack Obama is "intimidating". He's a jug-eared pencil-necked geek whose arse would get stomped in any physical altercation between himself and anyone over the age of 8.

You don't use the word boy at all in reference to anyone culturally over the age of 2 as a 'boy'....

Boy is short hand for 'House Boy'..... Wow... and Obama will not be held accountable , again.

Too bad the man did not respond that if Zero would call off his guards for 15 minutes, Rubio would, could wipe the floor with him. Then he could hike up his mom jeans, put on his helmet and snivel back to his corner for Big Mama to snarl at anyone who touches her golden goose.

I think BO is intimidating, especially when he's wearing his "Mom jeans"!

BO is a skinny, snarky, feminine guy that couldn't win a fight against a 16 year old.

He talks tough, but uses a feather. Just ask anyone from our Consulate in Libya... oh sorry, you can't, they were killed.

I always said racism is in the eye of the accuser. Look who refers to another minority - HISPANICS, pay attention! - ''boy''....

This story should get some circulation.

As for Obama the intimidator -

Bwa!!!!!! His only intimidation tactic (that works) is his pure evil intent. And he does use that. But him, physically? Intimidating? Evil eye stare aside (with or without makeup).....

Bwa!!!!!!

Obama is a really nasty Chicago pol, but because he has a nice smile (lately his smile is so wide his gums show, his eyes close and his nose crinkles with joy----what an act!) who constantly gets away with true snarkiness and bullying because people don't look at the man behind the curtain. Last night, I THINK because Romney caught him off guard as he was preparing to call the candidate a war monger, some of the real man came out: condescending, demeaning, lying, just plain NOT NICE! I hope voters caught that.

Not being a druggie ever i wonder if O is on drugs to get thru his debates altho i wonder if there is any such drug that would focus the mind--or maybe he takes drugs to calm him (had a little too much of that drug the first debate). We all know he is a pothead and cocaine user, but wondering what else he must use to get himself thru these debates?

I'm sure that when the activist told the Senator what president mom jeans said that he either laughed it off or just said who cares.

The Obama Brand was created and is maintained by the media. His entire life has been manipulated and fabricated by powerful people on the left, and is nothing but a charade. There truly is nothing to this man that hasn’t been created and crafted by someone else. He actually believes he is the president. But if he ever came out into the real world, on his own, he wouldn't stand a chance and would shrivel up like a fall leaf.
The time will come, probably after this election, when his handlers and the media are done with him, will discard him like a used piece of toilet paper. His fall will be great, along with his pride and arrogance.

I watched the debate, but I couldn't take my eyes off one person's hands.

Very long fingers, and at times looking very much like chimpanzee hands.

It's the second time I noticed it, the first time being the first debate.

that's all i have to say.
BTW. Romney won no problem

Evil, sinister and totally inept at being a decent person.
His glare at Romney last night showed nothing but hate. I kept screaming at Romney to talk about the many companies in China that GM has invested in, almost a dozen?
Then, I was upset when he called Romney a liar right to his face in front of the whole country. Talk is cheap, you thug!
Your actions, so far, have leveled us as a country and as a people once proud of our leaders, at least in some small way, even if we disagreed politically.

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. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN Reports Romney Internal
Polling Shows Obama Leading In Ohio

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. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

Mitt Romney and President Obama each racked up early and expected victories Tuesday night in relatively safe territory, while some of the biggest battlegrounds that will decide the election remained too close to call. All the big swing states where polls have closed -- Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina -- were too close to call, Fox News projects. (Snip) Obama will also win three of Maine's four electoral votes, Fox News projects. It is unclear where the state's fourth electoral vote will fall. The latest batch of poll closings, and results, has allowed Obama to take

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack 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.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March.

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
