Voters? Congress? Obama ponders
war on Syria without them

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 8/29/2013 9:10:40 AM

President Obama has been talking to a lot of people about Syria in recent days. His national security adviser, Susan Rice, and her team. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. Intelligence officials. Secretary of State John Kerry. British Prime Minister David Cameron. French President Francois Hollande. Wednesday afternoon he even talked to PBS´ Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff, of all people. But two crucial groups the president of the United States has not talked to about the likelihood of war with Syria are congressional leaders and the American people.

Talk to us?!?! We should just be thankful that Obama permits us to be his vassals. As to Congress, "What´s a congress?".

Et Tu Brute?

Yet another example of leaders presuming an election makes them special and gives them supreme power while lessors (doubters) need to just shut up.

It is a power which inebriates all who win elections.

Since he first took office, he has done much harm to America, and with each deed he has managed to blame it on Republicans..he acts like someone on the outside looking in and the msm allows him to get away with it..they HELP him play a phony blame game.
I say let HIM OWN Syria lock, stock and barrel. He will eventually be cursed for a generation.

Obama has not addressed the American people from the beginning. A liar does not want to put himself before any critics. And Congress is irrelevant. Boehner is just too timid, and afraid to head an opposition.

Scores of White House visits

ObamaCare troubles?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Here´s the opening of our column from last Oct. 23: “According to Kathleen Sebelius, Barack Obama knew nothing, absolutely nothing, about the fundamental problems with the Oct. 1 roll-out of his namesake legislation that will affect nearly one-fifth of the nation´s economy.” [Snip] But, turns out, Sebelius was at the White House scores of times and met with Obama 18 times. Somehow, the approaching train wreck never came up. Uh-huh.

Obama´s clever campaign to

Among the many costs of the Barack Obama presidency is an intentional corrosion for its own political gain of public faith in so many American institutions, among them Congress, the Supreme Court and the media. If numerous sectors of society are feuding or distrustful of each other, then a well-controlled central authority like a chief executive can more easily rule the pieces. It´s classic Chicago politics. Reporters Without Borders has released its annual World Press Freedom Index. What´s shocking is the United States’ ranking. During the fifth year of Obama´s reign the U.S. plummeted 13 spots to 46th.

Obama’s state dinner for France: Let

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness." In "A Tale of Two Cities," Charles Dickens quilled those lines about 18th century France and Britain. But as often happens with great writing, the expressed sensibilities about one time in history also apply to others like, say, 21st century Washington. [Snip] Truth is, there might not be a United States as we recognize it without our even older friendship with France.

Letterman: The main Sochi hotel for the Olympics I think is called the Two Seasons. Instead of a little chocolate on your pillow, the Russian maids leave a potato. Conan: Twelve new events at this Winter Olympics. The new events include women’s ski jumping, luge team relay and finding a working toilet. Fallon: Did you see the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony? There was a massive fireworks display. And that was just when someone plugged a hairdryer in at the hotel. Conan: We just had Groundhog Day. The groundhog came out, saw five minutes of the Super Bowl and then went right back into his hole.

What Rand Paul needs

Here´s a little unsolicited suggestion for likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul: Ditch the Clinton-Lewinsky meme. Twice in recent days, the Kentucky senator has gone out of his way to drag into his comments Bill Clinton´s smelly sexual scandal with a White House intern. [Snip] Once again, as in 2007-08 Hillary Clinton seems to be a lock for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2016. Do we really want to drag her name into the midterm´s political discourse as the wronged woman, another victim of another philandering spouse?

Normally, Joe Biden´s vice presidential duties involve funerals and speaking in places that The Boss won´t be bothered about. But this time was different. No, Philadelphia in February isn´t your prime get-away destination. But while there for a photo op, Joe descended into the bowels of the train station to pretend-drive a locomotive. It´s one of the new electric choos-choos that Amtrak will use to haul Democrats up and down the Northeast Corridor. It was very exciting for the vice president as he ponders a 2016 run.

Obama denounces stale political arguments,

Hi, everybody. In my State of the Union Address, I talked about the idea of opportunity for all. Opportunity is the idea at the heart of this country — that no matter who you are or how you started out, with hard work and responsibility, you can get ahead. I ran for President to restore that idea, and I’m even more passionate about it today. Because while our economy has been growing for four years, and those at the top are doing better than ever, average wages have barely budged.

Not a smidgeon of credibility
in Obama´s IRS claim
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 2/7/2014 9:46:30 AM     Post Reply
According to the president of the United States, the IRS scandal over agents targeting conservative groups is merely the result of "bone-headed decisions" by a few confused employees. And Barack Obama adds there’s not a "smidgeon" of corruption. Wait! Remember when this scandal broke last May, a president looking much like Barack Obama was so totally publicly outraged over this violation of government trust that he fired the IRS´ acting commissioner? Yet now, it´s all simply an unfortunate few instances of bone-headeded-ness that just happened to prevent dozens of groups opposed to Obama from participating in the 2012 election campaign.

Don´t be fooled into thinking that the 2016 presidential race and its main competitors will be determined in Washington. It can look that way with Washington media talking to Washington inmates about Washington issues on Washington shows. Rand Paul. Hillary Clinton. Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz. Paul Ryan. Peter King. (Just kidding.) Because these past 1,842 days with a rookie senator pretending to be the nation´s chief executive have shown how really well that works.

Did you ever find an old high school yearbook and shake your head at what´s changed since then? Not just the obvious clothing and hairstyles. But so many of the plans and promise of so many people. That´s what we did. We went back 1,818 days to one of the first speeches Barack Obama gave as the 44th president. Back to Feb. 12, 2009, less than a month from his first morning in office. There he was in East Peoria, Ill., at the massive Caterpillar factory, selling his then $879 billion stimulus spending plan wending its way through Congress.

You may not have been thinking about it at the time, but on Tuesday, when the president was delivering the State of the Union, we were observing a tradition prescribed by our Constitution. All branches of government and all walks of life gathering round in the people’s House. It is democracy at its finest. But these blessings do come with responsibilities. The Constitution also requires the president and Congress to heed the will of you, the people, and work together to carry out the business of the country. So in that spirit, Republicans identified 4 areas of bipartisanship.

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

Famed former CNN host Larry King said he has never heard of Juanita Broaddrick Thursday in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV. Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in direct contact with President Barack Obama at least 18 times between October 2012 and October 2013, including seven occasions where her draft calendar showed Obamacare as the topic of conversation. The news appears to contradict her insistence that Obama was in the dark about problems plaguing the ill-fated healthcare.gov website in the months leading up to its October 1, 2013 launch. The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

In a segment on last night’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, political commentator and prodigal GOP son Ron Reagan called out Sen. Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues? They could have all voted against the debt limit increase, they could have all gone home to their constituents in Tennessee or Kentucky or wherever, and they could have said,

I imagine the only thing worse than being forced to watch CNN inside an airport terminal is being forced to watch it in a doctor’s office. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered a Michigan health care facility, funded by federal tax dollars, blocked Fox News Channel from its waiting room television sets. The president of Family Health Care directed staff to block Fox News after a board member complained about our network’s coverage of the Affordable Care Act, an employee told me. “The board member complained that patients were turning the channel to Fox News,” said the employee who asked

King branded as “morons” many conservatives in the GOP caucus who consistently oppose any effort to pass the debt limit, asserting they are the same faction that led to the government shutdown last year. “This is the same group that back in September and October went into a government shutdown that everybody knew was a disaster,” King said on MSNBC. “They ended up looking like morons following Ted Cruz over the cliff.” King had been

And anyone who heard the comments knows that’s not what I was saying,” Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. “To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, that’s what it is.” Cuomo came under fire from conservatives last month when he said “extreme conservatives, who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay … have no place in the state of
