Obama, King of Glib, whines
‘This stuff is hard’

Washington Times, by Charles Hurt

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/30/2013 6:35:17 PM

The King of Glib sure isn’t ready for the serious business of actually getting things done. President Obama shined at Saturday night’s press dinner in front of the gold curtain, floating on a sea of sequined gowns and penguin suits, tossing out witty and daring one-liners. But standing there at Tuesday’s press conference talking about terrorism, chemical weapons and all the problems of governing, Mr. Obama looked and sounded like a bad performance of a sad parody of former President George W. Bush that you might see on “Saturday Night Live.” “This stuff is hard,”

Comments:
He really nails 0bama in this one. Of course it´s hard and 0bama proves he´s just in this game for the freebies. It´s obvious he´s incapable of doing anything well but partying, campaigning and playing golf. His behavior is terribly unbecoming for a president of this country.

Well bless your heart. Did someone tell you it would be easy and you wouldn´t even have to show up? Like at Harvard? Chicago? The Senate? You´re in the big leagues, bud. Put your big girl panties on and deal.

My biggest heartburn with Mr Hurt is that he insinuated President Bush into his whine. I think a much sadder President would have been Mr. (pants on the ground) Clinton.

But, I don´t think I should interject my bias here. s/o :-)

Obama is very smart in the ways that are important to advance his agenda. What we see as total incompetence is actually unimaginable success in his eyes. He is not in the position as President to fix anything. He was sent to destroy this country and he is doing a bang up job. The stage was set for him decades ago and those who chose him to be the face of their evil agenda knew exactly what they were doing. He is pounding the last nail in the coffin that the progressives have built for this country. They are doing what they promised. They are destroying us from within.

What was the press conference for yesterday? I never could figure what he was going on about. Also, the question about Obamacare, did anyone ask him about why Congress wants to exempt itself from having to abide by the law they passed? He is the most empty suit we´ve ever had. Our Founding Fathers would be appalled.

It seemed like the president had nothing of substance for any of the questions asked. Issue after issue, he either didn´t have the facts, or blamed Congress, or hadn´t heard about something.

For example, seven months after Bengazi, the president says that he still doesn´t have any information to disclose.

So what is Obama good for, other than damaging the country as stated by previous posters?

Debt?
National unity?
Illegal immigration?
Taxes?
Syria?
Libya?
Iran?
North Korea?
Guns?
Constitution?
Pigford?
Green energy/global warming?
Auto industry?
Oil/natgas production?

The list goes on and on.

With Benghazi and knockoff terrorist bombers and this is what´s important to him.
I´ll bet Ambassador Stevens would have liked to receive a call from this CIC to hear help was on the way. No chance of that happening with this light weight whining jerkweed.

“We’re having success defeating al Qaeda,” he told reporters."

The only success is the drone program, about which there are several facts that bear repeating:

1. Obama the Senator opposed it.
2. It would not have been allowed to develop into a success under a Republican President McCain.
3. Had Obama not been reelected, the Dems and the media (birm) would have killed it by now.

This is where we are: our country is in the grip of ruthless criminals who put their Party´s political success far ahead of their country´s, and yours.

The really frightening thing is if Joe blew out his hairplugs and had to be succeeded in office by.....wait for it.....John Boehner!

I would feel better if, at least, he was developing the kind of swing or shot or pitch that dedicated athletes acquire through sheer repetition and exposure to the sport and the culture.

Yes, the nation is in deep trouble with Øbama at the helm. The media are pushing for him to continue the destruction of our country. But, those in here who pray for God´s help now, shut up. God helps those who help themselves. We must step up, trust in God for our guidance and do the right thing. It is our nation, not God´s nation at stake here. We are the primary reason Øbama was elected. We just did not do enough to protect our nation in the last fifty years! Wake up!

Cry me a river. "This stuff is hard" for our military who are committing suicide in record numbers. This stuff is hard for jobless and underemployed Americans who also are giving up. This stuff is hard for those whose health insurance premiums have increased two or three times in the past year, and for the baby boomers who are on Medicare.

´Shoe´ Thrown at Hillary

A woman was taken into federal custody Thursday after throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton as the former Secretary of State began a Las Vegas convention keynote speech. The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage before an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay resort. Clinton ducked, and she did not appear to be hit by the object. She then joked about it. "Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?" Clinton quipped. Many in the audience of more than 1,000 people in a large ballroom laughed and applauded as Clinton resumed her

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand. The Royal was also famously caught out on a Canadian jet tarmac in 2011, when

Health Secretary Resigns

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Kim Kardashian might be one of the sexiest, wealthiest celebrities around but when it comes to the political arena not everyone is a fan it seems. It´s now come to light that the 33-year-old reality star´s offer to help President Obama in his 2012 campaign for re-election was reportedly met with firm resistance. Kim was said to have approached the president numerous times and act as his ´surrogate´ but Obama and his advisers apparently turned her down, according to RadarOnline. ´They wanted nothing to do with her,´ a source told Radar. ´She was not the young, cool image they wanted

Openly Partisan Stephen Colbert Chosen
to Boost the Left, not CBS Ratings
Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by Christian Toto    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/10/2014 5:08:40 PM     Post Reply
Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

The progressive march to the future is destroying America. What the Democrats and the progressives are doing behind the scenes is a more frightening and unjustified power grab than Putin´s on the Ukraine. I have been silent the last couple of years because my politics are not in goose step with most of Hollywood. For that matter it is not in step with the GOP, either. I find both parties have done things that are detrimental to America. The GOP more by sins of omission. I am not a conspiracy theorist, but I have come to believe America is being

Cantor “made a pledge that he would help” Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) enact the proposal, McKeon said at a roundtable on Thursday morning in Washington, D.C.

Obama´s politicized, lawless executive branch

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

He hasn´t yet won the Virginia Republican Senate nomination yet, but front-running candidate Ed Gillespie is leading incumbent Sen. Mark Warner among independents and Hispanics, the first sign of a chink in the Democrat´s armor. According to Democratic pollster PPP, Warner overall leads Gillespie 49 percent to 35 percent. But among independents, key to President Obama´s victories in the Old Dominion, Gillespie leads 41 percent to 39 percent, and he has the edge among Hispanics, 39 percent to 34 percent. What´s more, Virginia voters appear mixed on expanding Medicaid under Obamacare. Although they back the idea 49 percent to 43 percent, when

President Obama has cut in half the number of illegal immigrants “removed or returned” than during the George W. Bush administration, according to a new report that cheers the results. “Using a broader, more accurate measure of the number of unauthorized immigrants removed from the country since the first year of the Bush presidency, we find that in fact the total number of ‘removals’ and ‘returns’ has actually plummeted during the Obama presidency,” said the report from the progressive group NDN. “In 2012, the Obama administration removed and returned almost a million people less than the height of the Bush presidency.

During his speech at the Civil Rights Summit held at the LBJ Presidential Library, former President Bill Clinton sounded a gloomy note about the current state of the economy under President Obama. Clinton, whom Obama frequently described as the “Secretary of Explaining Stuff,” pointed out that the current state of the economy made it more difficult to unite Americans politically. “It is all the more difficult today because of the economic conditions that we find ourselves, where medium family income today after inflation is still lower than it was the day I left office,” he said, adding, “where all over

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
