Beating Obama
Front Page Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 10/22/2013 5:17:53 AM

Obama does many things. He prevaricates, manipulates, defrauds, abuses and usurps. But one thing that he does not do is compromise. Any strategy built on forcing Obama to compromise is inherently flawed. He may occasionally throw Republicans a tiny bone to make them feel better about giving in, but only as long as his is the only plate with meat on it. Obama never compromises because he has never really lost. He has been insulated from defeat by his fanaticism, his arrogance and his media… and by Republican incompetence.

Our current batch of leaders are way too scared to fight obama on their terms. Cruz, Palin, etc, have no problem fighting him, using his own rule book, Alinsky´s Rules for Radicals.

We need leaders that are not scared.

Agree #2 a Must Read.

WTP inderstand who we are dealing with. Cruz and Lee understand as well. That is why we all supported their actions during the recent shutdown.

RINOs need to get on board or they won´t survive the next election.

Finally. Someone can artfully articulate the problem: Obama has nothing to lose, and so he always wins.

In a game of chicken with a man who cares nothing for the status quo that impulse to conserve has become their [Republicans´] fatal weakness. They may gamble, but they never gamble everything because they see themselves as custodians of a political system, a legal traditional and a national heritage.

That is what our Founding is all about, but Obama abhors the Founders and the principles upon which America was founded.

Obama, who has no concern or use for any of those things, always comes to the table prepared to gamble everything. And it is hard to beat a man at a political game within a system of rules when he cares nothing for those rules.

We knew that. Obama´s behavior should have tipped off the Republicans, too. But they care more for peacemaking and appearing to be moderate thinkers than for winning ideological battles, and more importantly, the battle for the American soul.

Greenfield´s piece is a masterful work of simple observation: Watch what someone does and ignore what they say. Had Republicans done that, perhaps we wouldn´t be in a place right now where we are pondering how to get our Constitution back.

FTA: They were clashes of will and nerve.

With a few notable exceptions, we don´t have a single elected "R" who has any nerve; what they have --and the article didn´t address it, is greed.

Yeah. The elected "R"s are playing by the old rules because that´s what´s given then their power, and kept them in power; the old rules is what´s fed their greed.

Elected "R"s can prevaricate, manipulate, defraud, abuses and usurp just as well as 0bama, and it´s always worked for them in the past because they always had something to trade: PORK.

0bama doesn´t care about PORK. He really doesn´t even care about power, except for how it affords him the mechanism to destroy a nation he despises.

Every elected "R" needs to be hog tied to a tree and made to read this article over and over and over until he/she can recite it, word for word, and pass a quiz on the content.

That´s the only way I know to make what´s in this article hit the mark with the Elected "R"s.

You want to talk about 0bama´s arrogance. He´s not got anything on the Elected "R"s who are still playing by the old rules.

"Law does not matter." For a supposed professor of constitutional law (which Obama was not---he was an instructor and not all that enticing from what I have heard) he is a very dangerous man who breaks law after law, pushes envelope after envelope, and the MSM media says virtually nothing, even, amazingly, when their own ox was gored. We are literally turning into an Argentina or the like, with a President and AG who do whatever they please, counting on nothing being said and an oblivious populace------and when the country FINALLY wakes up it will probably be too late: way too many on the take and a whole new populace via immigration......I used to worry that would displace American workers, but so many of them are not working and are collecting unemployment they may not care. They are being re-educated as Takers.

Perceptive essay by DG. Go-along-to-get-along accomodationist "moderate" Republicans ought to have a print out of this essay stapled to their foreheads, because it pegs Obama, who will be a law unto himself until he sees his popularity numbers dive. Then he´ll panic and make mistakes from which there will be no recovery.

There are already plenty of indications of his intransigence and his attitude toward anyone who disagrees with him, however slightly. Just look at the Obamacare 800 number. Do you know what it spells (albeit with a "1" between the "F" and the "U")? Do you realize how any Republican would be treated if he did the same? He´d be run out of town.

The Legacy Media--much of which ought to be driving taxis or emptying garbage cans--is in the tank for Obama, but the comprehensive screw ups in the Executive Branch are getting too numerous to ignore. Maybe critical mass hasn´t been achieved yet, but it´s hard to believe that infuriated citizens whose medical insurance costs are necessarily skyrocketing are not going to know who´s responsible.

The McCain-Graham-Bush-McConnell-Boehner cabal urge the GOP to make nice with Obama, to disagree without being disagreeable. But it´s not possible to make nice with a political cutthroat. He must be opposed head on. (continued below)

I repeat what I have said several times here: The Tea Party should untertake a hostile takeover of the Republican Party and relegate the mollycoddles to the sidelines. (There should be no third party offshoot of the Republican party. As Gen. Patton said, "Let the Hun do that." A couple of RINOs might cross the aisle and become Democrats, but most of them won´t do that because they´re not social democrats (socialists). They´re just allergic to controversy, bless their little hearts.

Stop playing defense. That´s no way to win. Go on the offensive. That´s the only way to effect an Obama freak out and collapse. Damn the torpedos!

The author contradicts himself when he claims Obama has never really lost, then goes on to say that when told no, he makes mistakes. Obama most certainly has lost although not much: He lost on gun control and the US bombing Syria issue. Smelling defeat, Obama punted before the Congress officially gave him an answer on Syria. Now Syria is one of those mute topics the liberal press does not discuss. BTW: epic fails in Egypt and Syria for Obama, dereliction on grand scale in LIbya.

Why is standing up against ACA a mistake as Greenfield states? ("and both of those mistakes may prove fatal"). It stole the oxygen the LSM would have preferred to use on other pro-Obama agenda and set in stone, for the record, the premise "we told you so" re socialist health insurance downfalls.

Advertising pays their bills. Don´t buy from those who advertise on msnbc and nbc should be the first target. Starve them to death call their advertisers and tell them no.

A truly brilliant article. The only thing I would quibble about is the assertion that Obama cares about his popularity. He´s a Marxist revolutionary, he don´t need no stinkin´ popularity. In fact, he ASSUMES he has it even when he doesn´t. And his handlers are careful to always surround him with those subsets of his true believers that adore him no matter what. Ergo, his public speeches only at fawning college/high school/union venues.

The ONLY way to defeat him is through all-out, no compromise, Ted Cruz on steroids direct opposition. Publicly call him out as a liar. Ridicule his and his administration´s incompetence. And for We The People, don´t obey his unconstitutional laws. Civil disobedience. Squared.

He thrives on acquiescence. Give him push back instead.

What you do is make his policies, and those of the other liberal Democrats, into the issue.

They are failed policies except in academia (Ivy League).

Most Democrats aren´t liberal, but most Democrat politicians are.

Do the Democrats in Red states truly represent Blacks, Hispanics and Asians when none of those groups identify as liberal?

Republicans can push for responsible, dependable and efficient government not the bloated and wasteful government offered by Democrats.

The author nailed it. It is time to talk smack across the line of scrimmage. When I was a middle linebacker in collage, we talked smack all the time with our opponents.

The winner was always the opponent who could get into the competitors head.

I get it that the way to beat Obie and end his political career for good is to beat him at his own game. Replacing his agenda with ours is obvious, but, Greenfield did not opine on how to damage and defeat the msm. Although a simple approach is for Americans to boycott the msm and cease consuming its so-called news product.

Ann Coulter was recently interviewed by author, journalist and talk radio host Howie Carr on his program; her commentary was pure establishment balderdash. Ann may plead hyperbole, but her sentiment is readily apparent. Among the pearls of wisdom: Carr: “Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?” Coulter: “Um…well, don’t tell’em, but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest; flying out, kidnapping him, and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.” Carr: “You’re kidding.” Coulter: “No” Carr: “You really want him to run again?”

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company.

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies. A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
