Obama and Bush Eulogies:
The Grotesque and the Graceful

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/23/2012 11:47:33 AM

President Obama has a very serious ego problem, and when he goes off teleprompter, it sticks out like a sore thumb. His eulogy for Senator Inouye on Friday was grotesque in its focus on the speaker, not the dearly departed. Unsurprisingly, President George W. Bush delivered a graceful eulogy for Gerald R. Ford´s funeral, a model from which his successor should, but will not, learn. As David Paulin points out: A great funeral eulogy and not a single mention of "I" or "me" by President Bush.

If Bush were in office now it would be 24/7 Staten Island devastation from Sandy and FEMA failure.

~~If conservatives are ever going to learn how to respond the streetfighting ways of the left´s propaganda machine, now would be a perfect time. We are faced with a ruthless political-media machine that targets and takes out charismatic conservative political talent through the use of media-sponsored ridicule.~~

How true.....

How I miss a man who can speak from the heart, without that sing-songy cadence Obama uses! And a man who can speak about someone other than himself.

I also miss an Ameica where a man was measured by his ´honesty and courage´ as George Bush said about Gerald Ford.

This country still felt like America under Bush and that´s more important than anything else. there´s millions of people in country identification limbo now,just zombieing their way through life.

The other day on the weekly jobs report they said new claims went up 17,000 last week and that´s almost become a meaningless number except to the folks who got the pink slip.An "economist" then rationalized it by saying this number of jobs losses is expected in an economy creating 2 million jobs a year.Pure oxymoronism..So Obama has co-opted every bit of info coming from the media and somehow bad news becomes good news.

I can´t stand it when Obama says ´my Secty of State or my Def Secty´. The other presidents have never said it this way, they have always just said ´the secty of whatever´, but this guy is all about himself. These cabinet members work for the people of the United States.

Just listened to the eulogy by President Bush, what a wonderful man. I really miss him.

Too bad that many Americans did not comprehend Obama´s true spirit when they went to vote.

America has lost many good leaders of value, yet still cling to those who do not believe in the goodness of America, the blessings of Almighty God!

Christmastime should bring to our memories of the wondrous love God poured out in the body of Jesus, Lord/Savior to all who will call upon His Name, live according to His Word, receiving His blessings through His Love/Grace available for all who will believe, to receive daily all that we need - His Presence!

Thank God that the Bush presidencies presented Jesus as Savior/Lord, evermore to prosper US in His Name. They openly prayed, privately sought God´s will, always willing to listen/learn/obey!

One day George and George W. Bush will hear their Lord/Master call their name and to "enter in to ALL God has prepared for those that love Him.

Obama hasn´t yet decided who he believes - depends on the climate/politcal-correctness.

I pray all readers have made their choice. I await seeing you in the Kingdom Jesus came to provide - forever to bask in His goodness!

Having successfully demonized Chris Christie over the closure of traffic lanes on a bridge, the leftist mainstream media are now targeting Scott Walker, another very promising potential GOP candidate for president. All of this in the context media downplaying and outright ignoring revelations of lies under oath in a scandal that cost four American lives including an ambassador that reflects badly on Hillary Clinton.

Fleeing his failed diplomatic Middle East efforts, noted nonscientist Secretary of State John Kerry flitted off to Indonesia where he exuded hot air bloviating about (hu)man caused climate change as a weapon of mass destruction as noted here earlier. However, by Kerry´s reasoning, the ongoing slaughter in Syria is nothing compared to Kerry´s own contribution to manmade climate change/worse than any weapon of mass destruction, blah, blah, blah. How so? John Kerry is not a flappy bird moving from place to place under his own power. So how does he get around? Why, by planes. Big ones.

Oh, lookie, Speaker John Boehner and his dimwits have decided that riling up the party´s base over immigration reform isn´t so smart after all, not in an election year. Instead, the speaker and his dwarves will seek to "calm" a divided party, or so reported the Washington Post on Monday. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is all-in for the soothing music and back rubs approach for aggravated Tea Party patriots and grassroots conservatives. But it won´t work. Boehner´s little stunt -- pushing Paul Ryan´s immigration cave-in -- at the Stupid Party´s retreat at Williamsburg in January has only highlighted the need

It is a basic principle of psychological warfare that the side that controls the language of the argument controls the argument. Barack Obama´s own website is using this PsyWar technique by calling opponents of his cap and trade agenda "climate change deniers." (snip) The name "climate parasites" performs two jobs with exactly two words. It derails completely the enemy´s position that our side consists of people who are totally ignorant of climate science, or choose to ignore it.

You have been subsidizing the efforts of radical left-wing community organizers for years, and you probably didn´t even know it. Fifty years ago as Barack Hussein Obama inhaled the values of his communist parents, grandparents, and mentors, their comrades were drafting plans to destroy American civil society. Armed with your parents´ and grandparents´ tax dollars, America-hating extremists Richard Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, and Saul Alinsky were hard at work in the 1960s laying the foundation to wreak havoc on America and its people in an effort to force revolutionary change. Progressive agitators´ quest to obliterate economic freedom was aided by the "War on

Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, during a visit to Monticello on Monday, February 10, said, "That´s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want." That statement, made to French President Francois Hollande and Monticello Foundation president Leslie Bowman, was presumably a joke. Key word: presumably. With Obama, you never can tell. Obama´s own recent statements suggest that what he said at Monticello is what he truly feels. Speaking to House Democrats on Saturday, February 15, 2014, Obama said: I want to work with Congress to make that happen. But, I´m not going to wait, because there´s too much to

Inequality in America is a terrible thing, unless it results in a nice afternoon at a golf course so private that "uncrowded" does not begin to describe the solitude a presidential foursome can enjoy.

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead. The apology came just a day after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged Nugent to apologize for the remark. “Ted

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

President Obama’s stimulus may have boosted the economy when it passed in 2009, but it’s now beginning to take a toll and will soon begin to leave the economy worse off than if it had never passed, according to a new report Friday by the Congressional Budget Office. Mr. Obama signed the stimulus into law five years ago this week, vowing it would help rescue the economy from its post-Wall Street collapse tailspin, and saying it would save millions of jobs. The CBO said it’s been successful at that, helping sustain between 700,000 and 3.6 million jobs at its peak

The University of Notre Dame must provide birth control to employees and students after a federal appeals court ruled Friday, a move the school says will force it to violate its religious beliefs. In a blow to religious colleges and universities across the country, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied Notre Dame´s request for an injunction to the ObamaCare birth control mandate that requires the school to provide coverage for contraception. The injunction would have given Notre Dame a temporary reprieve from the birth control mandate, as the Roman Catholic school challenges the rule in court.

According to literary agent Andrew Wylie, President Obama’s post-White House memoir could fetch an advance of up to $20 million . First lady Michelle Obama’s memoir, which she has apparently already started, could bring in an additional $12 million — not a bad nest egg for their golden years. Presidents have long relied on memoirs to secure their financial futures. Calvin Coolidge got a $65,000 advance, back when that was real
