A Presidency Without… Guts
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/27/2013 5:32:10 AM

So the secondhand tale of House Speaker John Boehner’s assessment that President Obama “can’t make a decision. He’s got balls made out of marshmallows” … has a certain precedent, as Exurban Jon reminds me: “If Hillary gave him [Obama] one of her balls, they’d both have two,” Democratic strategist James Carville told the Christian Science Monitor at a breakfast on Thursday morning. The editorial board of the Washington Post uses nicer language, but reaches the same conclusion: … why is Mr. Obama not leading the way to a solution? From the start, and increasingly in his second term,

Normally, I dislike the stale references to male genitalia we seem to hear and read so often, but Geraghty is forgiven because I like him.

You spend 4 years making the problem worse, purposefully and unwaveringly making the problem worse - and yet, there still are so very many Republicans who believe you just lack "guts" or competence or whatever to find a solution....?!Obama must be laughing himself silly that so many supposedly smart people refuse to understand - in the face of 4 years of irrefutable evidence - that his intentions for the nation are, indeed, bad.

For those of you who grew up in the ´50´s, you know that the best term to describe Obama is "punk."
He is just a punk.
And if he and I were in the schoolyard then or now, I´d wipe that arrogant punk smirk off his face.

I believe Obama has the guts to do what is necessary to bring this country to its knees. Men of his mindset always do and history always asks, why didn´t the people stop him. I pray to God that question will not be asked of us.

Obama is not qualified to be POTUS and never was. He got elected because he is black. That´s it. He brought no experience to the job and his ideology is very liberal and very anti-American. He doesn´t negotiate with Congress because he doesn´t know how. He thinks he is entitled to the perks of the job but has never taken the responsibility so he campaigns and gives speeches. It really isn´t that complicated.

Republican have been deferential to Obama since Day 1. They are afraid of media backlash. They need to heap scorn, ridicule and cutting remarks a la British Parliment on his agendas and his unwillingness to govern. For example, the marshmallow comment needed to be public.

The pipsqueak is devoid of leadership experience. Presidents normally have done something in life other than just talk. He presumably is lost emotionally and intellectually when confronted with a situation requiring a decision. So he delegates. Furthermore, all he knows are inane socialist soundbites to help him get through the day. Consequently he rarely is in work mode while his handlers run the White House. Clinton was pretty useless too, but he put on a better show of hiding his incompetence to a gullible public.

Can you imagine the situation where a company put a neophyte in charge of the business? It makes one laugh. Well, start laughing at the White House calamity. After that you can cry.

For me it´s not a question of testicular fortitude. It´s a question of meanness of spirit. Fauxbama seems to want to win, to humiliate, to score brownie points with the loons. He doesn´t seem to want to heal the country. He cares nothing for the unemployed. Instead, he is fixated on class warfare and raising taxes. He is always willing to put the country through trauma, so long as he can blame it on someone else. It´s as if he´s carrying some terrible grudge. Why? Society has given him more than he´s ever earned. Maybe his dependency has embittered him and he wants everyone to share it.

It’s no wonder that when Soros, Ayres and Co. decided to destroy America with their evil magnum opus, Obama, they appealed to the segments of society that produced and fell for the likes of FDR, Kennedy and the Clintons (among many others).

As for wanting to slap that smirk off Obama´s mug (or worse), the line forms to the right.

Obama is doing just as he promised! We elected him twice anyway. We knew what he was. He consorted with unrepentant Domestic Terrorists Ayers and Dorn, America hater Rev. Wright, he was a community organizer (regal rouser) etc.

This was all poo poohed by the MSM, they veiled him from view and invented a different man. Enough of us fell for it to put him where he is today, Occuping the Oval Office!

Why do so many Republican talking heads continue to presume that Obama is lacking in guts when in reality he ran for the Presidency NOT to solve any of our problems but to destroy the very foundation of this country. They keeping giving him a pass.
What don´t they understand about "fundamentally transforming" this country? You´re either a blind, idiotic supporter of Obama or an enemy of the state and the state is Obama.

Aside from the harm he is doing our country, perhaps the most striking thing about Barack Obama is how consistently we underestimate him. I´m old enough to remember when it was the height of liberal wit to dismiss Ronald Reagan as "an amiable dunce." While these so-called smart guys were busy insulting him, President Reagan transformed American politics and changed the world. Reagan didn´t just say and do conservative things. He was conservative things: Small town boy, self-made man, cowboy, courageous, heroic, a Horatio Alger rise to fame and fortune through individual virtue and hard work. Reagan´s life confirmed the conservative vision of an America he loved.

Barack Obama is liberalism´s Ronald Reagan. Obama doesn´t just believe and advance a radical liberal vision of America. He embodies it: Mixed-nationality, international upbringing, single mother, welfare, affirmative action, Ivy League lawyer, social worker. Obama´s whole life confirms the false liberal premise that, with enough government, anything is possible. He is the anti-Reagan building liberalism´s anti-America. Barack Obama is destroying this country and threatening our world.

It is a serious mistake to underestimate him.

Jim DeMint was interviewed about this on Fox News last night. He made an interesting comment about why Obama is doing all this "sky is falling" nonsense over a reduced increase in spending.
He said the 600 billion tax increase voted into law earlier this year will cause much more pain in the economy that this sequester. He wants the GOP blamed when the pain from the tax increases kicks in.

When, if ever, will Democrat Senators take counsel with each other and go to Obama and tell him they will no longer stand behind him because he has gone much too far? When will the Supreme Court rein him in? It must be soon, if ever. These two places are where the responsibility lies and where the power is.

Good #6, 14. More than a few of us would have cornered that smart aleck in a stair well or parking garage by now if we were on capitol hill. I had a Speed(movie)-related dream late one morning, where I was at the wheel and someone forgot to check both directions before crossing. The only disappointment was waking up! drats! ha ha.

Affirmative action is not like an endless roll of toilet paper but Obama thinks it is. At some point in time the rubber is going to meet the road. Name one debacle under Obama´s watch he has taken responsibility for: Fast and Furious? No; Benghazi? No way; The downgrade in US credit rating, first ever under a sitting president? Huh-uh; The huge US debt 6 trillion increase on his watch? Ain´t happenin´; 2013 Federal income tax increases?; Not no way not no how; Inflation from him printing money at will? nyet; Middle East, broken, in flames? anh anh; etc etc.

I agree with #22. There is a lot more going on here, too much to be driven by stupidity. There is a plan, I havn´e got it figured yet but I think a lot of people in this government hope to get enough chaos and disinfromnation going from both sides that people begin to take things into their own hands and justify even bigger government control. I´m not sure yet but I smell something that isn´t real obvious yet. Now with the Senate Republicans thinking about giving Obama the choices, they think that this might work especially with someone who doesn´t play by the rules? Something stinks.

Bravo, #39!
This is what I am saying for at least 5 years.
Leftist radicals (call them fascists or commies, doesn´t matter!) seized control of the media and banks (by the way, hitler and stalin did exactly that, chavez as well) and are transforming America while rush, hannity and coulter blabber pseudo-conservative jibberish.
We still have conservatives with money in this country (or we don´t?), let´s ask them for help in acquiring the main stream media.
America needs the local newspapers and TV stations that have in headlines truth about what obozo and the rest of the team are doing to this great country.

The solutions to America´s Obama/Soros/Jarrett/Dem/Liberal/heathin-inflicted problems begin by permanently dispensing with PC and shouting the truth so loudly and bravely that We the People will hear it and act on it.

Who owns the leftist heathen media? Who controls Hollywood and the filth that is spewed there? Demonize them, for that is what they are.

Who is BHO/BS? Shout the truth in the halls of Congress and in our churches.

Christians are all that stand between America and her demise.

I divorced a malignant narcissist. I know exactly what Obama is capable of having lived with one for so long.
They will never, ever, ever, ever give up their need to control you. By whatever means necessary, they will continue to manipulate and control. They get a rush of pleasure when you are afraid. They feel like gods when you are helpless. And if you stand up to them, they will punish you.

They have no statute of limitations on their vindictiveness. If once you criticize them for anything, they will never let you forget. They will blame you for everything that ever goes wrong and will take their revenge in all sorts of creative ways on any perceived slight. The highlight of their life is to think up ways to hurt and humiliate you. Your humiliation is what they live and breathe for.
(That´s what the billion-dollar India trip and TSA was for after the 2010 elections...revenge. And that goes for this prisoner release now: punishment for the gop holding him accountable for the sequestration)

#22 said it best. Do no underestimate what a pathological narcissist will do. This isn´t even about ideology...narcissists only ideology is themselves.

This is about power in its purist form. This isn´t about guts at all. It isn´t about balls or spine or strength...it comes from a twisted soul.

What can be done? Nothing. Live your lives with faith in God and get on doing what you believe is right. One day he´ll be alone and without power. Then...God help him.

America is now in an abusive (unwilling) relationship. It´s just not healthy to live like this. The wisdom is knowing how to get out of it.

#6, punk is a very apt name for the Marxist.

#20, exactly right--he seeks to "fundamentally transform"--that is, to destroy what is the USA and put something else in its place. So far, he´s succeeded quite well.

He is not a typical politician, like LBJ or FDR (though they did some awful things that we still must live with), he is something far worse. Everything about this man screams dictator.

I concur with those thinking along the likes of #s 14, 22, & 36. My only quibble with 22´s closing statement - It is a serious mistake to underestimate him. - is that it is a serious mistake to underestimate his handlers. Barry the Fraud is just the frontman, a shiny hood ornament for a group of domestic communists funded from all over. Can´t put Barry and decision nor accomplishment in the same sentence. There is no evidence of either.

Hillary Clinton all but erased
from tragic story of Benghazi
Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 5:55:34 AM     Post Reply
A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events. In the early post-Benghazi days on Capitol Hill, Republicans tried to pry “what did she know and when did she know

LUDLOW, Mass. — Eric Lesser was shaking hands with diners in a Portuguese restaurant last week when he spotted the owner of Manny’s TV & Appliances. “Oh, I’ve got to get a picture,” Mr. Lesser eagerly said, draping his arm over Manny Rovithis, whose low-budget commercials have run for decades in Western Massachusetts. Mr. Lesser’s giddiness about meeting the local celebrity had not faded when he sat down for lunch. “Awesome,” he said. Although Mr. Lesser spent much of the last six years in the company of President Obama and Washington hotshots, now, as an earnest, hug-prone 29-year-old candidate for the Massachusetts

Scot Gillies has a good idea of the kind of horse people who will fit in at Gryffindor Farm, the small barn he helps manage in Lexington, Ky. So his advertisements for new boarders spell it out in detail: Owners must be "laid-back," "happy" and above all, "drama-free." Mr. Gillies, a marketing consultant by day and a horse owner himself, says that during his 14 years in the equestrian world, "I´ve seen the full range of drama that is associated with horse people." A few categories of problematic individuals reign: There are overprotective owners who insist their animals be treated like

Hate group to picket Kansas City funerals

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites. The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.” The Topeka, Kansas-based group is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, and has a long history of anti-Semitic

A Secret Fight over Russia
in the Obama Administration
Weekly Standard, by William Kristol    Original Article

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

It’s not spying, it’s policing. Good news for New Yorkers, who live, work and play in what remains the world’s top terror target: New profiling rules the Justice Department is drafting will reportedly let the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue the critical work of using nationality to map neighborhoods, recruit informants and look for foreign agents. In other words, they’ll let the often-cautious FBI engage in intelligent and legitimate policing to prevent attacks against innocent Americans.

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications. They say

Dartmouth College students recently staged an overnight sit-in the office of their president Philip Hanlon. They had over seventy demands. Apparently, they grew out of their alleged suffering at the hands of “racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, trans-homophobic, xenophobic, and ablest structures.” Translating into English, the students elaborated, “Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack” — suggesting conditions similar to the teen-aged Marines who stormed Fallujah in November 2004, or perhaps the iron-workers who tip-toe on girders 1,000 feet above Manhattan, or an acquaintance of mine whose work clothes reveal that he pumps out quite messy rural

The next ObamaCare disasters

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- The man accused of killing three people in attacks at a Jewish community center and Jewish retirement complex near Kansas City is a well-known white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader who was once the subject of a nationwide manhunt. Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Mo., was booked into Johnson County jail on a preliminary charge of first-degree murder after the attacks Sunday in Overland Park. At a news conference, Overland Park police Chief John Douglass declined to publicly identify the man suspected in the attacks. But an official at the Olathe jail, speaking on the condition

Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

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

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

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday
