Obama Advisor: Our Political
System Isn´t ´Worthy´ of Obama
and the Opportunity He Presents

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/21/2013 4:35:19 PM

President Barack Obama´s communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, says that our political system isn´t "worthy" of Obama and the opportunity the president presents. He made the remarks the Washington Post. “There’s a moment of opportunity now that’s important,” Pfeiffer tells the paper. “What’s frustrating is that we don’t have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.” The issue is that if President Obama wants to get things done, he´ll have to work with the uncompromising Republicans."If he is successful, his record could include a variety of legislative achievements

Comments:
Things that make your jaw drop open. I have never in my lifetime seen more arrogant, traitorous jerks occupying the White House. It is just astonishing what they are emboldened to say. Someone needs to take them down a few notches. Sadly, I don´t know of anyone able to do so.

What Obama wants is not a country of free peoples whom he can govern - and really, if we are truly free, we don´t need all that much governing - he wants an ant farm he can be master of. Crawl over here, dig a hole over there, move this pile of sand to that pile of sand, and I will sprinkle grains of sugar over all.

These political groupies and fanboys don´t know or care how the system is supposed to work. They are dogmatic fanatics who think they have all the answers and that anyone who dares to disagree is evil, stupid, or crazy. This mindset reflects the massive, in fact catastrophic failure of genuine liberal (as in broad-minded, widely informed) education since the Sixties. America is besieged by militant partisan drones who literally cannot conceive of any reason everyone would not share their personal beliefs.

Yep, he´s Washington, Lincoln, T. Roosevelt and Jefferson combined, except for, you know, any accomplishments.
All of his purported "achievements" have already failed, and the one success he can point to he didn´t even want to agree to. His underling had to force him to give the "Go" order for that one.
The only opportunity he presents is for even further failures and derision. Dan Pfeiffer must be a comedy writer for Stewart or Colbert on the side and another four years of obama/biden will be good for him. The good satirists are going to lampoon this stuffed shirt now that he´s not running for office again. Second terms are always when the sharper comments come out.

No one has had more control over the political system than Obama after his first inauguration. He had 60 votes in the Senate and a large majority in the House. He couldn´t get things done because he was to the left of enough members in this own party and he was unwilling to lead. He´s completely unworthy of his role.

Most of us on this site knew prior to 2008 that Obama, along with his handlers & hangers-on were unlike any to ever wield the levers of power in the history of this country. However, they are not completely unfamiliar to us who have dealt with maladjusted children. We know that they will do a great deal of damage before they are stopped.

These people have absolutely NO understanding of why 49% Americans find ´he´ and his cadre of ´fellow thinkers´ ......... and the direction they are taking us ........ a horrific continuing nightmare ........... and they don´t care!

For four years it has gotten progressively worse .......... and will do so exponentially for four more years! They castigate and name-call ALL those who differ are not following their mind set.

We are not any of those appellations thrown at us ......... and we grieve as we see our beloved Nation and Constitution dismurked (sec.) ..... and the generations of those dying for it, betrayed.

´What can we do?´ We do not want to live in ´his´ world .............. We cannot afford to go into exile abroad and suicide being morally an anathema ........... we await knowing like those in 1921 Russia, 1933 Germany and 1949 China ...... the noose is closing around our necks.

To paraphrase Winston Churchill´s 1946 Speech ...........

"a dark curtain has descended across the Continent .......... the dark ages may return ............ I have never lost faith in destiny, even in the darkest hours,I will not lose faith now ........ fifth columns constitute a growing challenge and peril to Christian civilization."

"these are somber facts but we should be most unwise not to face them squarely while time remains ........... do not suppose we shall not come through these dark years of privation as we have come through the glorious years of agony ............"

"with all moral and material forces and convictions the highroads of the future will be clear, not only for our time, but for a century to come."

Take heart fellow countrymen! It was ´he´ who could not abide the bust of Winston Churchill in the White House!

We will persevere!

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin & Krissah Thompson,    Original Article

When Laura Bush ventured to the Thailand-Burma border six years ago, the first lady accused China of not doing enough to pressure the brutal Burmese regime. When Hillary Rodham Clinton visited Beijing in 1995, she delivered a blunt assessment of China’s human rights record that reverberated as far away as South Africa. But as Michelle Obama prepares to journey to China next week with her mother and daughters in tow, one thing is clear: The current first lady does not plan to deliver a similar performance. Obama’s decision to focus on educating young people — a consistent theme in her

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS.

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

The IRS still has not responded to allegations from a former Center for American Progress (CAP) employee that the left-wing think tank coordinates on editorial content with the White House — revelations that could threaten the organization’s nonprofit status. Former ThinkProgress reporter Zaid Jilani wrote a piece this week detailing his experiences working for the liberal blog, which is run by CAP’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit Action Fund, the advocacy arm of White House counselor John Podesta’s think tank. “When I started working at ThinkProgress at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in 2009, I did so because it was an

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix. “Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality,” said the report from Unite Here. “Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage,” said the report, titled, “The

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

The two worked for Russia Today (RT) — an English-speaking media outlet funded directly by Moscow — and felt their bosses were trying to censor their opinions.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

President Barack Obama is putting his stamp on Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. The president will offer an "inspiring" introduction ahead of Sunday´s series premiere at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Fox announced Saturday.
