For now, the tide of Syria battle in
Congress is running against Obama

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 9/6/2013 9:13:46 AM

President Obama, who´s over in Russia today not talking to President Vladimir Putin, has canceled next week´s fundraising trip to California. That´s something he didn´t even do a year ago next Wednesday night when four Americans were murdered in Benghazi by terrorists who had nothing to do with a YouTube video. And it´s another sure-sign that he´s in trouble on his congressional vote to authorize attacks on Syria for using chemical weapons on rebels. Will Obama actually deign to lobby members? Thursday one more representative changed his mind.

The upcoming vote has split both political parties. The top two House Republicans, John Boehner and Eric Cantor, say they´ll support the president´s request, but as a matter of conscience will not pressure their majority´s members one way or the other.

No translator needed to figure that one out.

"[A] matter of conscience..." That´s damn funny.

boner carried stinky´s water. Good boy; here´s your puppy biscuit. Cantor; whatever.

The good news is that plenty of our congress clowns might actually be bright enough to see stinky´s Syria crap as a chance to finally get off the sycophant bus before they are eventually tossed under it.

They don´t like or trust him, but they fear him because he´s the jerk in chief, for now.

stinky´s Syria suicide mission is their best chance to once-and-for-all unstick their frightened little maws from the pResidential backside.

Just do it.

How many here think that if more and more congressmen speak out against going to war in Syria, there will be another gas attack on innocent civilians in Syria and will be blamed on the government?

11 tough questions Obama
is happy he didn´t get

First the good news from President Obama´s final news conference of 2013: "I´ve run my last political race." Of course, Obama made no new news. If he´d wanted to make news, he would not have scheduled it on short notice and on a Friday, when politicians release news they want ignored. Obama has broken so many promises, claimed ignorance of so many of his responsibilities and underlings´ failures and violated protocols, not to mention the Constitution. [Snip] In the interests of accountability, we’ve drafted a few pressing unasked questions that Obama would have tried to dodge.

GOP: ObamaCare rips off young people

Good morning from Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois — the proud alma mater of Ronald Reagan. On campuses like this, young people are just beginning to make choices that will shape their future. Right now — even in the middle of finals week — they’re being told that to make the future better, they should rush out and get covered under the president’s health care law. Not only that, they’re being told to “spread the word” about what a great deal it is.

Hi, everybody. This week, Congress finished up some important work before heading home for the holidays. For the first time in years, both parties came together in the spirit of compromise to pass a budget — one that helps chart our economic course for the next two years. This budget will unwind some of the damaging cuts that have threatened students and seniors and held back our businesses. It clears the path for critical investments in the things that grow our economy and strengthen our middle class.

Yet another hectic day planned for the Obama-Biden administration. [Snip] A new Gallup Poll is about fallout from the collapse of the creaky old Soviet Union, the long-time superpower rival. Pushed by the aggressive "We Win, You Lose" policies of President Reagan, the aging Communist monolith flew apart 22 years ago next week. The Soviet breakup was seen as a grand strategic victory for the U.S. and for the global spread of democracy to unleash prosperity for those populations. So, you might be surprised to learn this survey finds the populations of 11 liberated lands very disappointed.

Letterman: Did you hear about this? Thieves stole a half-million dollars-worth of Red Bull. They´re described as armed, dangerous and really ready to go. Fallon: New research finds kids today can’t run as fast as their parents did when young. But then, parents didn’t have phones to watch while running. Fallon: At Nelson Mandela’s service Obama came under fire for shaking hands with Cuba’s Communist leader Raul Castro. People were like, “Why would you want to be seen with that guy?” Then Castro said, “I didn’t! But all of a sudden he was shaking my hand!”

I’m Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey. These days, lots of Americans think Members of Congress are out of touch, and you know, at times there’s some truth to that. But there’s at least one instance in which many Members of Congress are feeling the very same pain that the rest of America is feeling. And that’s with this new health care law. Now, I don’t think anyone should be forced onto ObamaCare. But as a Senator, ObamaCare forced me and my family onto an exchange for health coverage. Just last week, my wife, Kris, tried to sign up on the health exchange website that’s available to us. Now, my wife is a very sharp woman,

Obama reminds us of Newtown´s horrors

One year ago today, a quiet, peaceful town was shattered by unspeakable violence. Six dedicated school workers and 20 beautiful children were taken from our lives forever. As parents, as Americans, the news filled us with grief. Newtown is a town like so many of our hometowns. The victims were educators and kids that could have been any of our own. And our hearts were broken for the families that lost a piece of their heart; for the communities changed forever; for the survivors, so young, whose innocence was torn away far too soon. But beneath the sadness, we also felt a sense of resolve — that these tragedies must end,

You may remember earlier this year that President Obama, in a fit of pique over Congress actually allowing his sequester cuts idea to take effect, had White House public tours canceled to save lunch money. During the later partial government shutdown, he ordered national monuments "closed," even though most are open-air. Now, comes holiday season in the Obama White House. Although the family travels at Christmas, they go all out for decorations.

Most days here we´re talking about relatively serious stuff -- politics, political maneuvering, political tactics, political speeches, political gaffes, political scandals. Oh, and politicians. Like the Chicagoan currently inhabiting the White House with his mother-in-law while teaching America about his adopted hometown´s chronic style of political ops. We´re all sorry about that. Anyway, today we´re doing something completely different. It's Sunday, which means the National Football League. And it's December, which means the playoffs are shaping up. We're not writing about the games though. We're writing about the show biz side

Merry Christmas, everyone, and hello, my name is Renee Ellmers, and I represent North Carolina’s Second Congressional District. Like many of you, I’m frustrated with the president’s health care law, especially where jobs and working families are concerned. I say this not only as a congresswoman and chair of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee; I say it as a nurse and the mother of a son in college. After all, it’s often women who make the health care decisions for our families. We put a lot of time and thought into these choices and how they’ll affect our budgets. So by canceling your insurance — despite a promise

The holiday season is a time for remembering the bonds we share, and our obligations to one another as human beings. But right now, more than one million of our fellow Americans are poised to lose a vital economic lifeline just a few days after Christmas if Congress doesn’t do something about it. Our top priority as a country should be restoring opportunity and broad-based economic growth for all Americans. And yesterday, we learned that our businesses created about 200,000 jobs in the month of November. That’s more than 8 million new jobs in the last 45 months. And the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in five

Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.

A closeted gay student living in West Monroe, Louisiana has written a powerful essay, criticizing the town´s most famous residents - Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. Robertson made headlines after issuing homophobic comments in a GQ article, at one point comparing gay sex to bestiality, which got him put on suspension by the A&E network. But the network announced yesterday that they would be reinstating Robertson to the show, who so far has remained unapologetic about the comments.

When Barack Obama rose to national prominence following his 2004 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, his African-American heritage was a footnote to the fawning reception he received from the media and from most Americans. While the speech was not a case study in brilliant oratory, Illinois State Senator Barack Obama exuded charisma and eloquently discussed an appealing if not particularly original theme of unity and bipartisanship. Fast forward to today. President Obama´s race is no longer a footnote. It is central to his presidency. It is arguably his defining characteristic. Unity and bipartisanship are nowhere to be found. Who is responsible

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a paranoid email Saturday evening urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can’t impeach President Obama.The email, subject line “Impeachment,” was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC’s 2014 efforts. “What do these people all have in common?,” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct. The DNC email discussed

Newspapers are among the last places in America that have close to zero tolerance for [expletive deleted]. I could give you a hint about what word is between the brackets, but I’d best not for fear of arousing the ire of the editing Comstocks. About twice a year, I quote a profanity from a public figure, using just the first letter of the word and then some bowdlerizing asterisks for the rest. No dice, my editor tells me. You’re writing for a family newspaper. There was a time when such standards were the norm at major media institutions in America.

A wild flash mob stormed and trashed a Brooklyn mall, causing so much chaos that the shopping center was forced to close during post-Christmas sales, sources said Friday. More than 400 crazed teens — who mistakenly thought the rapper Fabolous would perform — erupted into brawls all over Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin on Thursday at 5 p.m., sources said. The troublemakers looted and ransacked several stores as panicked shoppers ran for the exits and clerks scrambled to pull down metal gates. “I was begging them to stop.

In a just world, all the people who have piled on to the federal government for blowing the launch of healthcare.gov would take a look at the UPS Christmas Day screwup and swallow hard. But it´s not a just world, so the lesson of how the nation´s leading parcel delivery service got blindsided by an excess of Internet traffic surely will be ignored. Alec MacGillis of The New Republic reminds us of all the finger-wagging by private sector triumphalists to the effect that, unlike the government´s health insurance enrollment system, commercial websites and services wouldn´t have been brought down by a

Two days after President Barack Obama signed a budget compromise that slashed pension benefits for military veterans, retired Marine Jessie Jane Duff blasted Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for his "outrageous attitude" toward the sacrifices those in the armed forces have made. Appearing on Fox & Friends on Saturday, Jessie Jane Duff, who is at the E7 level, said Ryan, who brokered the deal with Sen. Patty Murray (D-WI), does not realize that many active duty military personnel go back to civilian life "broke" and "without a job" and have difficulty getting on equal footing with their "civilian counterparts."

Benghazi, Libya - A Boyish-Looking American Diplomat was meeting for the first time with the Islamist leaders of eastern Libya’s most formidable militias. It was Sept. 9, 2012. Gathered on folding chairs in a banquet hall by the Mediterranean, the Libyans warned of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi. One militia leader, with a long beard and mismatched military fatigues, mentioned time in exile in Afghanistan. An American guard discreetly touched his gun. “Since Benghazi isn’t safe, it is better for you to leave now,” Mohamed al-Gharabi, the leader of the Rafallah al-Sehati Brigade, later recalled telling the

HONOLULU — On these sun-bathed shores, Barack Obama was born and spent his formative years, soaking in an island sensibility that his wife and friends say is indispensable to understanding who he is as president. Yet in the search for a home for his future presidential library, Hawaii has become the underdog, stuck in Chicago´s perpetual shadow. It´s not for lack of trying. A high-level campaign has been underway here since Obama won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 — before it was even clear he´d win his party´s nomination, much less the presidency.
