For Obama, image is everything
and the only thing

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/28/2013 5:21:02 AM

The biggest scandal regarding Benghazi may be that the president was not at the helm on 9-11-2011 and was not directing the response to an attack. His aides insist he was getting updates, but the president is supposed to be more than an inbox for messages from his advisers. Was he peppering them with questions? Was he insisting they run through the available rescue options? The answer to both seems to be no, and for that dereliction of duty he needs to be held accountable. Maybe he would have been more accurate in his statements after the fact

The shocking thing about this article is that it is in the Washington Post by someone who loves Obama. She has finally seen that "the emperor has no clothes." There is "no there there". Hope it is not too late.

Ahem. Jennifer Rubin is the token conservative columnist at the Washington Post. There is no written evidence that she has ever loved Barack Obama. No shock here.

If the usurper pResident was concerned about image he would be a principled truth-teller and adhere to the Constitution. Instead, he lies, hides who he is, and works against the people of America rather than for them.

I would like to see a report done on how frequently the "won" has had to call himself president or commander-in-chief. I do not recall anyone in the Oval office during my years (that´s quite a few) referring to themselves as such as much as this ´won´. It´s like all those who proclaim on a daily basis what a good Christian they are and the first chance they get, stab you in the back or take advantage of someone.

Last time they had to Photoshop him into the situation room, and that didn’t work too well. (Let’s face it, their Photoshop shop is not the best.) This time they didn’t even try.

But really, give them credit. Their voters don’t do news, so why spend time worrying about what will be in it?

While the article is correct, it is old news. BO´s Seinfeld presidency has long been obvious and documented. He has no ability to DO things, just to rabble rouse. He is exactly what his limited experience has made him, a community organizer, who likes to talk and shake things up to get OTHER people to take action. When the "other people" around him prove to be incompetent, you get a lot of nothing. Sometimes I think BO likes that because it gives him less to try to talk around later. He often talks about something walks away from it and comes back to it again later like it´s a fresh issue, only to do nothing yet again.

And the reason things don´t get done is ALWAYS someone else´s fault, usually Republicans. BO has stopped trying to deal with Republicans because no one trusts him anymore, he refuses to compromise, and he got outmaneuvered and burned by the sequester.

Foreign policy is just one more thing BO hasn´t bothered to do. And HRC accomplished nothing either.

With all due respect . . . the story here is that the press is finally discussing what has been obvious for years. Fauxbama is what he is, an inexperienced, inept ´leader´ who chooses instead to lecture. That´s all he´s ever done.

Typical WaPo readers will respond to Rubin as they always do. They see her as nothing more than a Tea Party shill, even though she is a liberal Republican. There will be no honest discussion of the facts, just name calling and cries for the Post to get rid of her.

Still, she´s correct here.

Each time I read such articles, I wonder who is really making the decision. And each time I conclude that it´s Valerie Jarrett and her six 24/7 armed Security Guards.

Why is no one asking her about any of this?
Why has no one to date asked about her functions in this Administration and why she needs such security protection?
Why has no one seen fit to question Valerie Jarrett publicly about the POTUS´ decisions and actions?
Why is she not considered suspect and complicit in so much of what is going wrong?

As time passes, her invisibility becomes more visible and her silence becomes louder.

New media, why don´t you begin investigating exactly how much Valerie Jarrett is doing while putting Obama´s face on it?

They were probably close when they said obama was in bed during the attack in Benghazi. Most likely UNDER it.

I think he made one phone call, telling the military to stand down so his brothers would not be hurt. Nobody else could have done that except the Joint Chiefs and I can´t believe they would dare do that and still be able to put on their uniforms the next day.

I do **not** believe Obama didn´t know about this. Maybe he didn´t know the nuts and bolts but I´d bet the rent he was briefed about "something" going on with the IRS.
And if I were president and I had to find out what´s going on in my administration from the media, people would get fired starting with Chief of Staff, whoever that is these days.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Fergus Reid Buckley, the youngest brother of William F. Buckley Jr., and founder of the Buckley School of Public Speaking, died this week. The following article is his remembrance of actress Ava Gardner.I was deeply saddened by the death of Ava Gardner. At one time, I guess I was about as close to her as anyone outside her immediate family. I first met her (I believe it was in connection with the filming of 55 Days at Peking) while lunching at La Puerta de Hierro Country Club near Madrid. She was at the next table. With an absentminded

Nothing to see here folks, move along. That was the verdict of Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner William Evans on the latest “performance artist” to plunge the city in turmoil. So what if they had to shut down the Green Line and “detonate” said artiste’s attack backpack Tuesday night on Boylston Street? “There was no breach of security,” said the mayor yesterday. Of course not.

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying. Even when a part of the science of flight

His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas.

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
