Obama is no longer so invincible
Washington Examiner, by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/27/2013 10:09:52 PM

President Obama is concerned these days with the "young invincibles," the 20-somethings he needs now to buy into his program, but who probably won´t because they feel (you guessed it) invincible and think they will stay so for quite a long time. But it takes one to know one, as the irony is Obama himself is, or once was, an ultra-invincible, unstoppable and doing what people said couldn´t be done. Could he become world famous on the strength of one speech? Yes, he could. Could he beat Hillary Clinton, a president´s wife and a feminist icon? Yes, he could. Could he

Comments:
I wish I could believe that. 0bama will carry on as if he´s a dictator until he is stopped, by whatever means.

Well, not all these "young invincibles" are going to stay Obama supporters. Some of these kids worked hard in college, earned pricey degrees and after two years of no job prospects, student loan payments and having to move back in with the folks, the Obama magic is wearing mighty thin.

While looking at the cartoon on the home page -poison pill - the logo for Obama´s campaign is there on one side of the capsule - it occurs to me that the red and white stripes at the bottom of the logo looked like downturned, unhappy expressions . . . reflecting an increasingly higher PMI(personal misery index).

When you hear a college age kid saying their main goal in life is helping the environment,they are a lost cause person.The other tag line is I want to make a difference.These are abstract concepts that lasso people into being permanent liberals,no matter how bad their stake in life gets.

Economics professors probably teach kids how to get a government grant rather than how private capitalization works.

The Battered American is no longer going to take back the contrite "I´ll never do it again" Battering Husband. He has indeed demonstrated that he cannot be trusted with our trust. Once you lose the trust, it´s gone. It is not as though Obama is the kind of POTUS who will actually apologize, say "I was wrong", and demand the law be repealed.

So, absent his total capitulation and repentance, anyone who believes anything he promises is the equivalent of a battered wife with an IQ in single digits.

I am in agreement with the premise that Obama is no longer invincible. However, I do believe he is still extremely dangerous. With an ego like his, there is no way he is going to give up on his efforts to fundamentally transform this country unless he is forced to do so. It is obvious that people are upset and don´t trust him, but how do we proceed from here? We need some real leadership from the Republican Party to come forth with viable workable solutions to the chaos this president has created. Don´t wait for the democrats to finally realize Obama is toxic and then someone like Hillary will emerge to "fix it". We need good solid conservative leaders to point the way out of this nightmare.

He´s been livin´ on the love of the twenty- somethings since his first campaign events in 2008. It looks like free beer and Bruce Springsteen isn´t going to cut it anymore. This why he has to recharge every week or so by speaking at schools; from junior high to colleges . It is these skulls full of mush that still adore celebrity over sensibility.

# 9 is doing fine.

However, never forget that the msm is like the government beauraquency; not held accountable, not elected, always liberal and willing to do ANYTHING to keep a progressive in power. They will no more leave Obama, in the long run, than a conservative mother would leave their child on a battle field. They have no other choice in the matter.

It is hard to look even mildly competent with a corrupt msm against you. They can make even the most incompetent, anti-American, narcissist, liar look like a winner, if he is one of their´s. We need to keep praying.

That´s right Obama is not running for office unless he declares himself ruler/dictator.

Can´t you see it coming? The failure of the ACA will be blamed on the evil insurance companies who priced their policies too high with too large deductibles. Obama is just an innocent victim who tried hard and meant well. The first effort will be to force the insurance companies to lower their prices and deductibles but since that will cause them to lose money they´ll just quit. With the insurance companies out of the picture only the federal government can save the day by taking their place. Obama rushes in to save the day. Hello, single payer, nationalized, socialized medicine and Obama is the hero.

Obama is a magician. With one hand he claims he MUST have "20-somethings" for the program to work, even though they typically make very little. With the other hand he has millions of more affluent people´s policies cancelled forcing them into the system. Call me crazy, but it seems to me that the latter will be the ones who finance his Marxist boondoggle.

If you ain´t got the dough, then you´re a no show. First off Middle income people are smart enough to arrange their taxes so there are no refunds, so no IRS penalties can be collected when you reach the penalty stage for not signing up. The underground market is going to thrive and Illegal criminals don´t pay taxes. Oh well, they get free medical services anyway.

How many bright people do you think will now go through all those steps it takes to become a Doctor. You would be surprised how many people in San Diego go to Mexico for dental work. Its cheap and they have someone meet you at the border and drive you to the Dentist. A lot of the Dentists are Americans.

I wonder how many Doctors will become Expats.

No, no , nyet, nyet, NO. HE pays NO price whatsoever. WE pay the price. Geez, please demonstrate how he and his ilk have paid any price for their transformation processes. I can demonstrate all day how they have not and how the country has and will continue to.

Can he talk his way now out of all of his problems? It seems "no, he can´t" anymore.

Who cares if he can´t TALK his way out? His policies have ALL been implemented at afterburner speed while the nation´s majority voters drool over Lady Gaga´s failed pop whatever ididocy. Thanks to your pals at the Weekly Standard and your constant "Now we have him" nonsense, and especially the GOP Depends filling "courage" Obama will continue to afterburn us into the tyranny sitting in your living room and you keep ignoring. This "conservative" passive aggressive lunacy is really getting old.

What # 19 said. And to add to # 17...Voting regulations need to be changed...you have to show a copy of filed/paid income taxes to be able to vote. If you don´t pay taxes, you don´t get to vote. That´s why founding fathers put in property ownership as a requirement. These people had *skin in the game* as 0 loves to say. But today many people live in apts, but still pay taxes. This would remove the welfare queens from being able to vote themselves more of our money

Not every citizen makes enough money to pay taxes. The only true text of citizenship is a valid social security card. With computers and scanners - just like credit cards - the technology exists to convert all social security registrants into a national credit card LIKE system of national IDs.

I realize this sounds 666ish. But come on - there is no way to guard our country without some type of legitimate registration and monitoring system.

This would then protect our voting system. It would prevent identity theft and give merchants a way to double check credit card authenticity.

What is wrong with this idea?

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.

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
