Barack Obama’s
Defective Public Character

Commentary Magazine, by Peter Wehner

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/4/2013 8:16:14 PM

Sequestration, for all its problems–and I consider it to be an abdication of responsible governance–is helpful at least to this extent: it captures, in a single, still-unfolding act the problematic character of the president. To understand why, let’s update our effort to follow the bouncing Obama ball. Here’s some of what we know. (a) The president and his administration are responsible for the sequestration idea. (b) Before that fact became widely known, Mr. Obama misled Americans of that fact in a debate with Mitt Romney–and his aides did the same thing in the aftermath of the debate.

It remains shocking to me that so many people can listen to Obama´s speeches while failing to register how each statement conflicts with the next-sometimes in the same sentence.

Our schools have failed to teach critical thinking to too many -- and is it any wonder when the union lackeys are in charge there.

When I briefly taught in public school many years ago, the teachers´ union was just beginning to get a foothold. Those who piled on that bandwagon early were the biggest goldbricks and the least intelligent of the entire faculty. And like our ear-leader, they had the biggest mouths.

This president´s disqualifications and unqualifications were starkly obvious from the outset. Unfortunately, one of the traits of the LoFo´s and NoFo´s (many of whom are in the MSM, by the way) is that they´re, not surprisingly, slow learners. Now, four years plus into this horrid presidency, they´re getting a clue.

Anyone´s character is built primarily at home. And BHO, in his own words tells us how dysfunctioanl his home life was in his formtive years. He was raised by radicals, he was schooled by radicals, his friends are radicals, his policies are radical, and no one has to wonder what his intentions are. Radicals know that lying to get what they want is step 1. The ends justify the means, and the radical media support radicals.

Mockery, mockery, mockery. Obama should be mocked incessantly for his over the top behavior. I sometimes wonder why the Republicans won´t take a page from Alinsky and make a laughingstock of Barry. They could publish Bouncing Barry video clips of Obama contradicting himself. It could be a weekly feature complete with growing nose and laugh track.

Good point, #8. We´ve been HAD. Disparaging Zippy & Co. should have been part of the Romney campaign, but wasn´t (as he admitted to Chris Wallace this weekend), but can start now and may be to good effect if he is depicted as a scialist Dictator in the midst of destroying our republic. His core constituency won´t buy that, but adult Americans who value this nation will.

#8 excellent idea. If one thing could make Obama lose his cool, it would be mockery. His whole persona is wrapped up in his infallibility. The liberal talking heads would explode. They would cry foul and scream it was disrespectful to the President. The rending of clothes and gnashing of teeth would come if they couldn´t stop it. Sounds like an effective plan to me. I smile just thinking about it.

Obozo doesn´t have a defective public character. He has NO character at all, public or private. Simply, Obozo has never grown up, no matter how many years he has been on this planet.

The one thing I taught my children as they were growing up is that THEY have to accept responsibility for their actions and be accoutnable for them as well. That is what makes you an adult. Obozo has none of these traits. All he does is still act like a 3yr old that doesn´t get his way.

It´s amazing to me that Barack Hussein Obama has been touted as having "superior" intelligence, when he is a consummate liar who has difficulty putting two sentences together without a teleprompter.

The only thing that gets him by is that he is a Marxist/Socialist, just like the media, unions, and teaching establishments. His anti-American world view is praised in those circles. In reality he´s a despicable narcissist bent on destroying all that we hold dear, i.e., anything that makes America strong and successful.

This fascist ideologue has no interest in the Truth, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or the welfare of America.

It, le curtsying queen Ø´Blamer, has been indoctrinated in muslim fascistic ideologues, communistic subversion techniques since birth (assuming it was born since we have no records of that unfortunate event) and has been trained to always regurgitate convenient lies to infidels. It would not recognize the Truth if It stole it´s prayer rug.

If POGO were around today he would no doubt observe that "I have seen the enemy and it is the gov.nyet fascist regime of queen Ø´Blamer".

Barack Obama is a pathological liar and the most openly corrupt man ever to occupy the White House. Barky has no leadership qualities. He´s the Agitator-in-Chief, incessantly rabble-rousing and endlessly campaigning but never, ever leading.

What has Obama done to unite this country?

Nothing.

What has Obama done for race relations?

He´s made them the worst they´ve been in decades.

What has Obama done for our economy?

Nothing. We´re further in debt than we´ve ever been, and the employment problem has only worsened.

What is Obama doing for America?

In the beginning, there was “The Bible,” the most-watched cable TV show of 2013. Following its flood of faith-inspiring success are three Bible-based movies set to open in theaters this year. The first, “Son of God,” is produced by the married couple who brought “The Bible” to the History Channel and into households across the country — producer Mark Burnett and actress Roma Downey. “We really believed that people would show up in droves, but 100 million people was a big number,” Mr. Burnett said of the 10-hour miniseries’ total audience. “Before we knew those results, we’d already started on

The 2016 Democratic presidential field is likely to run to the left of President Obama, partly because candidates will try to distance themselves from his political baggage while jockeying for an increasingly liberal base of voters, analysts predict. Prospective candidates and their surrogates insist it’s too early to tell what kind of standing Mr. Obama will have with voters and whether he will be seen as damaged goods the way President Bush was for Republicans in 2008. But discontent is brewing within the Democratic Party over what some see as Mr. Obama’s concessions to Republicans. Those Democratic voters will be

Accenture, the contractor urgently tapped to help fix the federal health-insurance Web site, is a favorite of corporate America but has a record that includes troubled projects and allegations of ethical lapses, a review of the consulting giant’s history shows. At the University of Michigan, students and faculty members are protesting the school’s use of Accenture to help cut costs, citing a report by a committee of alumni and graduate students that said the firm has “a disturbing pattern of problematic past performance.” In North Carolina, glitches in an Accenture-configured computer system contributed to massive backlogs for food-stamp recipients, leading

The emergence of Twitter as a social media goliath has unleashed gossip and speculation as a media force. The long term consequences are unknowable, but in the meantime, with a far left president with a dicey past, it is producing some highly amusing results. Last night, President Obama explained to Bob Costas of NBC Sports why he wasn´t attending the Sochi Olympics, but the substance of what he had to say was lost in the controversy that erupted on Twitter over whether or not he was stoned. Yahoo writer Mike Oz took the high road, as would nearly any journalist, and described the president as looking "sleepy."

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- The death of the chief of the American Title Co., under investigation by state insurance regulators, was a suicide, the Arapahoe County, Colo., coroner said. Richard Talley, 57, was found dead in the garage of his Centennial, Colo., home, earlier this week, the result of self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun, the Denver Post reported Friday. Talley, and the company he founded and led as chief executive officer, are under investigation by the Colorado Division of Insurance, a part of the state Department of Regulatory Agencies which regulates title companies, an agency spokesman confirmed Thursday.

NBC whitewashed Russia´s communist legacy in the lead segment of its Friday broadcast of the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage narrated the network´s lionization of the largest country by land mass: "Russia overwhelms. Russia mystifies. Russia transcends. Through every stage of its story, it´s resisted any notion of limitation. Through every re-invention, only redoubling its desire to cast a towering presence." However, Dinklage continued with a glorification of the Marxist-Leninist totalitarian state that slaughtered tens of millions of people between 1917 and 1991:

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The warm-up act for President Obama’s speech here Friday featured a four-piece jazz band playing in front of a John Deere tractor. Obama’s quest to bring together two other disparate elements — Democrats and Republicans — was not as successful. The president traveled to this middle-American college town to tout the passage of a $1 trillion farm bill this week, a rare bipartisan achievement by Congress that the president was eager to highlight. Six congressional Democrats flew aboard Air Force One — but none of the two dozen Republicans invited by Obama showed up. House Agriculture

Barack Obama, the first president shaped by the celebratory culture in which every child who plays soccer gets a trophy and the first whose campaign speeches were his qualification for the office, perhaps should not be blamed for thinking that saying things is tantamount to accomplishing things, and that good intentions are good deeds. So, his presidency is useful after all, because it illustrates the perils of government run by believers in magic words and numbers. The last progressive president promised Model Cities, with every child enjoying a Head Start en route to enjoying an Upward Bound into a Great

It should have been a glorious week for AOL chief executive Tim Armstrong. His company’s quarterly earnings, announced Thursday, were the best in a decade. “Olympian,” he declared. Instead, he angered employees, insulted parents with sick babies and shined a light on a practice seeping its way into corporate America that threatens to rob workers of thousands of dollars in 401(k) savings. The strange turn of events began Tuesday, when employees began learning that AOL was switching its 401(k) match to an annual lump sum, rather than distributing the money throughout the year with every paycheck as it had done

Swedish researchers report that antioxidants make cancers worse in mice. It’s already known that the antioxidant beta-carotene exacerbates lung cancers in humans. Not exactly what you’d expect given the extravagant — and incessant — claims you hear made about the miraculous effects of antioxidants. In fact, they are either useless or harmful, conclude the editors of the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine: “Beta-carotene, vitamin E and possibly high doses of vitamin A supplements are harmful.” Moreover, “other antioxidants, folic acid and B vitamins, and multivitamin and mineral supplements are ineffective for preventing mortality or morbidity due to major chronic diseases.”

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative?

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the
