Obama Set to Discover Inheriting
Your Own Mess Is Hard

Townhall, by Elisabeth Meinecke

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/24/2012 6:04:30 AM

For four years, President Obama and his team never failed to remind Americans of the state of the country he inherited from his Oval Office predecessor. The mess left at the end of Obama’s first term, however, makes the George W. Bush years look gift-wrapped. From the debt to entitlements to health care and education, the next four years promise a gauntlet of challenges the White House must address sooner rather than later.Challenges abroad The Eurozone and the Global EconomyOn January 20, the president faces an even more questionable global economic outlook than previous administrations.

If you pour gasoline on your own house, it´s a safe bet you don´t care if it burns to the ground. Only if you´re caught at it.

I guess there is some sort on mental cutoff point where Obama starts owning everything but don´t doubt for a minute that it´ll be republican obstructionism will become the new scape goat.

If only Obama could get his hands on $2 trillion in new money,he could make the country´s problems vanish overnight. Who cares where he gets the two trillion from or how much the interest payments are on it. He can´t raise taxes that much or the economy would shrink to a (-) 50 growth rate,making the problem worse.

Maggie Thatcher´s immortal words have never been truer. Socialism works great until you run out of other people´s money.The left are some vicious people when cornered by a lack of new money streams coming in. Left wing fruitcake groups are already lining up to make sure they feel no pain under a fiscal cliff deal.

The biggest problem the left has on getting more money is most of it would have to come from stingy rich liberals.

And inheriting Obama is even worse! Lord knows he will probably never grasp that HE is the cause of a lot of this, his arrogance being what it is. THIS will be his legacy, but like Jimmy Carter, he will never pay, at least among those who worship him-----I truly truly hope THEY suffer along with the rest of us.

Don´t hold your breath. The central theme of the play ´0bama´ was created by the left with non-accountability as the central theme. Many years, a lot of money and effort has gone into this production. Facts, law, traditions, Constitution have meant and will mean nothing. Dust off and put in a good fight for 2014 is the only option left.

Valerie Jarret and other high-level democrats who pull the puppet strings will do all of the back-room dealing, worrying and water carrying. The so-called president will vacation and play golf and be oblivious to all of it except if something happens for which there is credit and praise to be dished out by the MSM. Sometime around January, he will also begin campaigning for his third term.

This might be an interesting and even valuable article EXCEPT...

Obama´s objective IS NOT to improve the economy, public schools, his own economic performance, or the overall well-being of the country - his public pronouncements beginning with his few months as a US Senator bear this out.

What is his objective? - watch Dinesh D´Souza´s documentary 2016 and you´ll know for certain... or just read a few of Obama´s thousands of speeches over the last six years. By government executive fiat and legislation, he wants to "level the playing field" among the ´wealthy´ and the ´poor´, the ´haves´ and ´have nots´, the ´producers´ and the ´takers´, the employed and the unemployed, America and any other nation on the planet(like Kenya).

Obama would never want to improve public education - AND HE WON´T. Doing so, would rile up the Teacher´s Union and improve the minds of public school attendees (both of whom are part of his Core Base). An INFORMED and PATRIOTIC public school graduate is the VERY LAST THING he wants - those kind of people don´t vote for him and his political kind.

The fact is, Obama and his liberal followers don´t want a better, more informed, wealthier, patriotic America.

When will people, like this well-meaning but delusional columnist finally get it???

Obama is not on America´s side.

One other thing...

Obama and his liberal coterie done care to change. He is untouchable now because he continues to benefit from a rare confluence of circumstances which have him in the enviable position of:

HEADS I WIN - TALES YOU LOSE.

There isn´t anything he can do - right, wrong or indifferent from which he doesn´t benefit.

The centuries have shown that Afghanistan is perpetually and unchangeably unconquerable and uncivilized. GW Bush chased al Qaeda out, and that was about as good as it gets. The Taliban cannot be defeated due partially to one simple principle: You cannot prevail militarily against indigenous forces in a nation which is bordered by a nation(Pakistan)from which an enemy can enter to hurt you and then return to sanctuary. That is why Nixon found it necessary to attack Cambodia.

We should not have announced a withdrawal date(year) from Afghanistan, which was monumentally stupid, but neither should we stay there and have our people ground into the dirt at the enemy´s will as noted above. We should withdraw to one or more enclaves centering on major airports and defensible, withdraw our troops in an efficient and well planned manner, shoot our way out as necessary and get out of there.

(continuing) Elementary and high school education are not logically national-, but rather state and local functions. Federal intervention is a boondoggle and a welcome mat for bureaucratic and unresponsive agencies which simply commit our treasure, reward some local supporters, declare some kind of illusory transient victory and move on, leaving our students untaught as before. State programs which succeed educationally should be recognized and rewarded; those which don´t should be sanctioned by the states themselves, The feds should butt out.

Taxes: Our President does not lower taxes on the hiring class but rather raises them, not on any basis for believing that they need to be raised, but because of his own self-declared assumption that the evil rich should be taken down, while almost half of the country does nothing to help them carry the tax burden. This situation will not improve during the coming four years, but will lead inexorably to continued waste, despair and economic malaise, with national flight of capital and bankruptcy a possibility.

The ACA: Still Falling Short
National Review Online, by James C. Capretta    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/1/2014 5:24:37 PM     Post Reply
The Obamacare open-enrollment season (supposedly) closed yesterday, so it is good time to step back and assess where things stand with the law and its first-year implementation. Interestingly, Obamacare remains something of a Rorschach test for journalists and health-policy analysts. Looking at the same set of facts, two observers can reach very different conclusions. For instance, Noam Levey of the Los Angeles Times writes that Obamacare “has spurred the largest expansion in health coverage in America in half a century.” Meanwhile, health consultant Howard J. Peterson, writing at the Philadelphia Inquirer news site, says “the first four years of Obamacare has led to

Yesterday the Obama Administration boasted that six million people had signed up for Obamacare. There was not a word about Frank Alfisi. Frank Alfisi was killed by Obamacare. His daughter, Amy DiFrancesca, is furious. And yes, she quite specifically blames the President of the United States for her father’s death. As did the doctor who told Amy: “You can thank Mr. Obama for this.” Before we get to the specifics of how Frank Alfisi died, let’s begin with the who of this story. Mr. Alfisi was not a statistic. He wasn’t a guinea pig or a lab rat. Frank Alfisi was a real person.

Last month, Amrit Singh, an adjunct professor at Hostos Community College in the South Bronx, received a letter from the New York City Marshal, advising him that he owed $10,000, due within 20 days. If Singh did not pay, the letter said, money would be garnished from his paycheck. “It got me worried, because I knew I didn’t owe this amount of money,” Singh said. Singh called the Marshal’s office, and they told him Atlantic Credit, a debt collection agency, secured a judgment against him for the $10,000.

Presidential campaigns are long and complicated, and getting more so, but they all start in the same way: Hopefuls jockey for position in a handful of lanes that open up for specific types of candidates their party seems willing to consider. That is precisely what is happening now as Republicans begin serious contemplation of the 2016 presidential race. The party is changing and soul-searching after two straight presidential defeats, and its coming nominating contest may well be the most crowded and wide-open in a generation. To sort through that forming crowd, think of the potential candidates as falling into five different lanes.

When it comes to mocking a sitting president, the world’s most dangerous leaders have apparently taken up the traditional role played by late-night comics. It started last August when the 11-year-old son of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad took to Facebook with this message for President Obama: “I just want them to attack sooo much, because I want them to make the mistake of beginning something that they don’t know the end of it.” A few days later, Papa Assad tells Charlie Rose that Obama runs a “social media administration.” Next came Vladimir Putin.

President Obama´s endorsement on Monday of Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) in a Democratic primary is a big deal. Until now, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) sported the most notable endorsement in the race: That of late senator Daniel Inouye (D), whose dying wish was for her to succeed him. But if there´s one endorsement that could carry as much or more weight in what promises to be a contentious campaign, it´s Obama´s. The broad unpopularity that has has turned Obama into a political albatross in many states does not extend to Hawaii, where he grew up and enjoys iconic status. Obama

The Obama administration is celebrating that it has achieved its (downwardly revised) goal of signing up more than 6 million Americans for Obamacare by 11:59 p.m. March 31. Mission accomplished! Not quite. The administration has not revealed how many of those 6 million people have paid their premiums. If you have not paid, you have not actually “enrolled.” It’s like putting merchandise in your Amazon cart but never clicking “buy.” Besides, the number that matters is not how many Americans signed up for Obamacare but rather how many previously uninsured Americans signed up for Obamacare. By that standard, Obamacare may be

President Obama sees himself following in the footsteps of the creator of the modern Democrats, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who launched the “New Deal” in the 1930s to protect the interests of working and middle class Americans. Among numerous other programs, Roosevelt’s New Deal included Social Security for the elderly, a massive program of public works for the unemployed, subsidies for farmers and government recognition of labor unions to raise wages for private sector workers. Shortly after Obama’s 2008 election, Time ran a cover story picturing Obama as the next FDR with the title “The New New Deal.” President Obama and his

JERUSALEM -- A hard-line Israeli Cabinet minister says convicted spy Jonathan Pollard opposes being freed from a U.S. jail in exchange for Palestinians prisoners. Uri Ariel says people close to Pollard have told him that he opposes such a "shameful deal." Ariel, from the hard-line Jewish Home party, spoke to Army Radio on Tuesday. He says he, too, is against the release of "murderers" for Pollard. Talk of the possibility of Pollard´s early release has arisen as an incentive in the troubled Mideast peace negotiations. The idea is that if he is freed, Israel would make concessions and release more Palestinian prisoners.

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease.

The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of
