Oh-oh! The dreaded i-word
starts attaching itself to Obama

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/4/2013 10:37:18 AM

We have already seen Peak Obama; from here on, it´s going to get rougher and rougher for Barack Obama. Even worse, the one word he must fear the most has just been uttered by a man regarded as a bit of a truth-teller among liberal elites. Joe Klein, the celebrated author "Anonymous," who wrote the best selling, truth-telling book Primary Colors about the 1992 primary campaign that brought us President Bill Clinton, has made it ok for liberals to apply the word "incompetence" to the Obama administration. This represents something of a breakthrough. Until now, it has been taboo

The "i" word? My first thought was "Indonesian," -- very poor reflex on my part, and I apologize to the gerat and valued people of Indonesia.

Should have thought "irritating", "ignorant", "idiotic"...

Does Obama ever not use the word "I" all the time? We know he thinks he does everything so he is always saying I did this and I did that, all Inaccuracies.

I had not seen the clip before because I did not care enough. However, when I watched the clip in this article about him shooting those jumpshots I noticed something interesting. I am not much of a basketball player, but when I shoot jumpshots and I miss, I change my delivery the next shot. I watched Obama fire off three shots in a row from the same spot with exactly the same motion and exactly the same result. I think that tells us quite a bit about our President.

Zero was a sub on the Punahou High basketball team, and it´s not hard to see why that was. He spends a lot of time on the basketball court and on the golf course--much more than any other president, by far--but on the court he can´t hit; neither can he hit on the links. His golf swing is an uncoordinated, powder puff move generating little clubhead speed or precision. One thousand rounds with Tiger wouldn´t improve his golfing abilities because he lacks the one thing that all good golfers have: hand-eye coordination. His baseball pitching motion is similarly goofy. In no way is this character a natural athlete.

His physical abilities aside, he doesn´t seem to do much else well, either. About the only thing he has going is that important sounding speaking timbre that drives the Low Information Voters wild. Never mind that the mind behind that voice is about as fertile as desert sand; this character could stand at the lectern and say, "I just sliced my grandmother´s throat from ear to ear," and his votaries would scream in approval. It´s like a 1964 Beatles concert; you couldn´t hear the band for all the screaming.

There is no doubt that he loves the adulation, the title, and the power it confers. But he´s just not into the work thing, especially when there´s playing and partying to do on the taxpayer dime. The entirety of his reputation for brilliance rests on his first ghostwritten "autobiography." West of the Atlantic there´s never been such a phony who rose so far, so fast, so unaccountably. As long as he and his ilk are in power, this nation is in a bunch of trouble.

Successfully crippling the US economy is not incompetence. Infusing the US government with an army of socialists is not incompetence. Exploiting ignorance and using the MSM to spread it is not incompetence. Encouraging America´s enemies around the world is not incompetence.

It is fulfilling the Democrats´ dreams. They, like Klein, just refuse to admit what they are really up to. Still.

That´s just wishful thinking. Nothing will ever permanently attach itself to 0bama the magnificent. For every article that may hint at his incompetence by one of his leftist worshipers (which we all know to be true), there will be hundreds written and spoken over the air that will still adulate him and prop up the malevolent Marxist and cover for his sins and crimes against this nation.

Incompetence is preferred to the real import-EVIL Traitor.
Ironically, the 2 for 20 on the BB court may begin to wake up the 6 % swing voters.
His 47 percent entitlement junkies will still support him no matter what.
I include the high end crony capitalist like GE´s Jeff Imhelt , Buffett and the Green Energy scammers.
Also included are the delusional Hollywood crowd of high school grads who haven´t a clue about global warming scam and gun control issues.

Similar to what they did in the skeet-shooting jive, stinky´s puppetmasters will produce a CG video of the worthless little fraud sinking 20 of 22. It wouldn´t surprise me if they just photoshopped his pointed little knob onto some old Michael Jordan clips. That would be enough for his brain-dead media toadies, and more than enough for his ignorant worshippers.

Totally agree with #10 - his supposed passion for basketball & golf are totally contrived PR stunts designed to give him street cred with certain targeted constituencies. He never developed any natural athletic ability by playing outdoors with the neighborhood kids - instead he was hanging out in some dark basement with the choom gang, (and the other pasty faced creeps that never saw sunshine) dreaming up revolution and plotting to take down the USA.

If he didn´t insist on making himself the center of attention at every event, he wouldn´t embarrass himself. This was supposed to be about the children, not him. He should have let the kids be the stars & just stood back and applauded them as any normal president would do. But he just had to grab the spotlight, then make a fool of himself.

Insidious and Islam-favoring. He isn´t incompetent in achieving his Alinsky goals--chaos and the resulting revolution.

A win-win for obaMao. Either he has a legacy of changing the US from within which he bemoaned was not possible as election-stealing day neared. Hardly incompetent in loosing the dogs of voter fraud.

Community organizers believe in change through revolution--he called our Occupy to help him. Social democrats like those Allen West named in Congress as socialists, believe in change without bloody revolution.

Communists believe revolution necessary. He is doing a pretty good job of enriching himself and building a dynasty-political power, whatever and if it all collapses into chaos it can be rebuilt from the bottom up as wished by his real father, Frank Marshall Davis, Communist community organizer in Hawaii. Just why did his mother send him to Hawaii to be mentored by Davis instead of to Kenya.

He is only incompetent to those who erroneously think he has one goal AND the best interests of a constitutional USA to be saved. He promised to fundamentally change America and he is.

Many of the comments at various blogs addressing the forced resignation of Brendan Eich emphasize the fact that Mozilla is a private company and can hire or fire whomever they want for any reason. This is partially true. (snip) But an employee cannot be wrongfully terminated in California or terminated on the basis of discrimination, that is, on the basis of age, race, sexual orientation, gender, disability, political affiliation, religion, or national origin.

“Your father’s coming to see you,” Ann Dunham told her ten-year-old son Barack Obama, Jr. before a month-long Obama Sr. Christmas visit in 1971, as narrated in Dreams from My Father. Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit, reportedly part of a "recuperation" after a "bad car accident" in Kenya, included "drives" around "the island," "short walks past" "the remodeled hospital where [Barack Jr.] had been born," and "a talk" to Barack Jr.´s fifth-grade class about "wild animals" that "roamed the plains" of Kenya. And, most importantly, Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit gave credence that Obama Sr. was, in fact, Barack Jr.´s father. But was

Battleground Polls and Conservative Strength
American Thinker, by Bruce Walker    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/4/2014 10:28:59 AM     Post Reply
The latest Battleground Poll, compared with prior Battleground Polls, shows the percentage of Americans who describe themselves as “conservative” dropping. The percentage is lower than almost any Battleground Poll in the last fifteen years. The percentage of Americans who call themselves “liberal,” by contrast, is at an all-time high. Modification in the demographics of the poll sample may have something to do with the change. Women form 53% of the sample, while women are 50.6% of the population. Blacks are 13% of the Battleground sample, a smidgen more that the black percentage of the population. As I noted a few years

There is a mountain of media out there promoting a phony philosophy about the joys of recreational sex – casual, risky sexual encounters that do not involve commitment. One need look no farther than the junk advice featured in magazines like Cosmopolitan to see just how pernicious and pervasive recreational sex is. The time for some straight talk about this sexual trend is long overdue. Every young person needs to know the following three truths: Truth #1: Recreational sex has produced dramatic increases in sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Girls who are sexually active in their early teens are twice as likely to

Daily Beast columnist and CNN contributor Sally Kohn took to Twitter on Monday with a triumphant message to Republicans. “Once again, Republicans,” she tweeted, “if you’re [sic] biggest attack against Obamacare is the website,that’s a sign you’re losing the larger debate.” (snip)we have to entertain the question. Do Sally Kohn and her cohorts really have absolutely no idea what the opposition to ObamaCare is all about? Do they really think all this public anxiety and anger is rooted in Republicans’ exploitation of the website’s gremlins?

Obama´s Rose Garden
phony numbers ´tell´

The April Fool’s Day show put on in the Rose Garden yesterday was no triumph, but rather an act of desperation, touting “enrollment” numbers generated without any transparency, intended to arrest the downward spiral of Obamacare and the Democratic Party’s electoral prospects. Obama himself gave away the game unintentionally, in what poker players call a “tell” that consisted of two parts. The first part of the tell was the obvious outright lie told by the president in a “poor me” moment of self-pity. From the official transcript: And we didn’t make a hard sell. We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials

As November disaster looms,

The standard MSM trope is that the GOP is riven by conflict, but even they are beginning to notice Democrats turning against one another. There is going to be hell to pay for the Democrats in November. Having rammed through a disastrous transformation of health care, a lot of congressional Democrats and many more down the ticket suspect that voters will vent their anger at the party that foisted the travesty on us. As the old saying goes, “Success has a thousand fathers and failure is an orphan.” So Democrats are scrambling to make sure that their backs are protected when

Conservative critics of government are “freaks,” are “in for a pretty rough ride,” and “will need their Kevlar,” i.e., bullet-proof vests. These statements didn’t come from the Obama administration or some radical leftwing organization. They are Facebook posts of a Republican elected official in Virginia’s Fauquier County. Fauquier drew national attention in 2012 for charging farmer Martha Boneta with violating the law by having a birthday party for eight little girls without a permit and zoning site plan. The highly charged posts of county supervisor Holder Trumbo came shortly after two recent events, and are emblematic of the civil war taking place within

H.L. Mencken once said “For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.” This quote seems applicable to the activists who blame a “culture of violence” for the high rate of firearms-related homicides in the United States and propose restrictions on or elimination of 2nd Amendment rights as the solution.(snip) the majority of firearm homicides in 2013 occurred in the small fraction of the voter precincts that overwhelmingly voted for Democrat candidates.This dataset of homicides will be mapped against socioeconomic Census data to quantify the characteristics of the neighborhoods where firearm homicide is prevalent.

While alarm bells are loudly ringing over the Common Core, a much quieter, yet potentially devastating, coup is underway, enabling the progressives to subvert secondary education. In classic leftist fashion, the vehicle chosen to propagandize our youth into seeing America as a fundamentally racist, unworthy, and unfair society in need of “fundamental transformation” revolves around a wealthy non-profit organization that enjoys a near-monopoly on a prestige-generating market niche. The Heartland Institute alerts us to what’s going on, as the College Board Advanced Placement Examination is being turned into a vehicle to denigrate American History.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
