Obama: ‘We Still Waste Money in
All Kinds of Things That Don´t Work’

Weekly Standard, by Jeryl Bier

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/5/2013 11:11:44 AM

At a Democratic National Committee fund raising event in Atherton, California Thursday morning, President Obama declared that the United States government still needs to get its fiscal house in order: We still waste money in all kinds of things that don´t work, and we have the capacity to shift those dollars into things that do work and that will grow our economy. And we can reduce our deficit, stabilize our debt, and do so without sacrificing the kinds of investments that are going to be required to grow. During his remarks, the president spoke of the

There goes that brilliant scholar 0bama again. He forgot to mention all the complete failures and wasteful spending on his beloved green energy. s/o

Geez...does this bozo even listen to himself regurgitating the same garbage year after year - while he demonstrates the economic acumen of an eggplant?

One supposes he took the last election as an infomercial on the apparently stupidity of his voting bloc...and just thinks the rest of us are that stupid as well.

Then again - this is a ´president´ who´s only known actual work history is pretty well Baskin-Robbins clerk level...

" in " all kinds of things ???
Obama often speaks in public settings as if he´s never taken an English course in his life.
Perhaps this is another reason why all of his educational records remain sealed.
The reliance on the teleprompter is an attempt to prevent Obama from fully
revealing his ignorance in public.
One can only imagine how he speaks and behaves in private .
The media not only ignores his butchering of the English language ( something they would not
do for President Bush) , but, they helpfully clean up his grammar in their official transcripts.

A college sued by a student prohibited from passing out copies of the Constitution expanded free speech protections and provided $50,000 to the wronged student as part of a settlement reached last night to end the lawsuit. Robert Van Tuinen, who was banned from passing out copies of the Constitution last September, filed a lawsuit against Modesto Junior College in October. A videotape of Van Tuinen being told he needed a permit and could only hand out the copies in a small area set aside for free speech at the college sparked widespread criticism.

Multiple companies currently exploring new business ventures in Iran are also cashing in on highly lucrative contracts with the U.S. Defense Department, raising questions about whether their dealings with Iran could run afoul of U.S. law. At least 13 major international companies have said in recent weeks that they aim to reenter the Iranian marketplace over the next several months. The companies have received Pentagon contracts totaling well over $107 billion, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis that tracked DoD contracts awarded since fiscal year 2009. Many of the companies, which include carmaker Renault and oil giants such

Joe Biden: Obamacare not a jobs killer

Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday denied that Obamacare would cost many Americans their jobs, insisting that it gave workers, in particular women, more employment freedom. In an interview on ABC’s “The View,” Biden was asked by host Barbara Walters if the health law was a “jobs killer.” A recent Congressional Budget Office report projected that the health law could cost the equivalent of more than 2 million workers over coming years, a finding the Obama administration has pushed back against. Biden said that a closer reading of the report showed that President Obama´s health care reform law would actually

The Obama administration is short of star power as it begins its last public relations blitz for ObamaCare. President Obama’s celebrity supporters are not in the forefront as they were during the star-studded campaign-style videos that hogged the airwaves in 2008. Contrary to expectations, the White House’s A-list backers have mainly stuck to Twitter to voice support for ObamaCare, while others have appeared in inexpensive online videos, or chosen to promote California’s insurance marketplace instead of HealthCare.gov, the notoriously troubled website for the federal exchanges. It seems that not even the president’s most fervent

A review of the U.S. relationship with Uganda in response to newly enacted anti-homosexuality legislation could lead to options such as cutting aid or imposing sanctions, a State Department spokeswoman indicated on Monday. But as the U.S. considers steps against Uganda, White House press secretary Jay Carney could not say whether the administration was also reassessing its relationship with other countries which similarly outlaw homosexual behavior. Asked during a press briefing about many other countries in Africa where such laws are in place, Carney referred the question to the State Department. “What I can tell you is that the law

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded Monday night to the Obama administration’s proposal to cut the U.S. Army to its lowest point since before World War II. Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.
