Obama: People do think I´m trustworthy
CNN, by Kevin Liptak

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/30/2013 9:30:11 AM

The hits to President Obama´s popularity, prompted by the botched HealthCare.gov rollout, are simply a natural fluctuation every commander-in-chief faces, Obama told interviewer Barbara Walters in an interview aired Friday. "If you remember, I´ve gone up and down pretty consistently throughout," Obama said in the ABC interview on Friday. "But the good thing about when you´re down is that usually you´ve got nowhere to go but up." "I got re-elected in part because people did think I was trustworthy and they knew I was working on their behalf," Obama said in the network´s exclusive. A CNN Poll of Polls complied

Sure, and you can fool some of the people all of the time. Those people are called liberals.

Considering he told us what he was going to do, transform America, redistribute wealth, have a single payer medical scheme, etc. he actually is trustworthy. He is accomplishing all that. Unfortunately the only untrustworthy ones are the people who voted for this dictator.

If he actually believes that people think he´s trustworthy, it´s just another sign that he is unraveling before our eyes. Perhaps he thinks he´s trustworthy because the sycophants (including the wife) in the WH tell him he is. He should get out more.

Here is a man who says things he wishes were true to be true... then believes it.
There is something mentally wrong with a person who can fabricate their own reality and then believes it.
The LAST PLACE that person should be is in the White House.
And the voters who believe this false reality. Same thing... not in a voting booth.

Get real, Barack. You got elected because you were a blank slate AND weren´t Bush, meaning you had nothing to do with the fustercluck known as Iraq. McCain looked senile and came off as a feckless hawk. You got re-elected because the GOP nominated Mittens, who was beating you on the economy poll-wise, but did not seem to get that Americans wanted ZERO to do with another war in Middle East and could not bring himself to put distance between himself and the neocons.
Heck, his foreign policy team comprised neocon retreads! Finally, demographics favor Dems in POTUS elections, (but not in midterms) and lofos abound in POTUS years such that the ´coolest´ will always win. As Clinton said, you are the luckier (in the nature of your opposition) than a dog with two [male reproductive parts.] Only Bill would say such a thing...

Nothing´s natural about this con man´s fluctuations. But he´s run out of marks as even the once credulous LoFo´s are catching on of late. He´s a historic head case. It´s certainly no coincidence that a person with Dr. Krauthammer´s psychiatric training is especially adept in assessing this character.

Wonder what would happen if an old-school newsman, a real attack-dog, with the attitude of the old Sam Donaldson or Dan Rather but with a mind like Charles Krauthammer or George Will, REALLY went after President Obama, called him out on all the propaganda and misrepresentations, and didn´t let up until the President offered a straight answer.

What happened to the ethics of the 4th Estate? Where is their professional pride?

Obama is a duplicitous liar. If you ask me, it´s clinical.

Snippet from Ambassador John Bolton:

"President Barack Obama has one remarkable ability that few presidents ever have emulated, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton said on Wednesday: the ability to say something with a straight face when he really thinks exactly the opposite.

“He has done this for three years, say something about what his position is which is 180 degrees opposite to what his position actually is. It’s absolutely remarkable.

“He talks about protecting the middle class, but he is doing exactly the opposite; or being a strong friend of Israel when, in fact, he is the most hostile president to Israel since the state was created in 1948."

To#15. Here is a couple of other reasons Obama got elected.

He put the IRS on the trail of tea party groups who spent years trying to get tax exempt status.

He suppressed voters by putting DOJ Eric Holder on every voter ID law the conservatives tried to move forward.

He got elected by utilizing the NSA to dig dirt on all communications of the opposition.

He got elected by getting fat Chris Christie to put his arm around him after Super Storm Sandy.

He got elected because Romney turned out to be Obama lite, only without all the lying.

Rush talked about something similar in regards to the media at least a decade ago. What the media builds up and creates, they eventually take great pleasure in also destroying.

It will only take one, maybe two, well placed shots from someone brave in the media for the whole Obama shooting match to totally collapse.

Only thing that he can be totally trusted to do is anything that is greedy, illegal, corrupt, and, of course, to find a way to make money at it all.

I thought Clinton was an "unusually good liar." Well, at least Bill was somewhat charming, in a rascally sort of way.

I´m still looking for the redeeming quality of Obama. Because he lies even worse than Clinton.

Obviously, one of the requirements for being a liberal or a Democrat is the lack of a sense of shame. I could never make in in that group.

BHO is the symptom, that he could get elected and continue in office is the problem. BHO is just one person and as such, alone, could not do the damage he is doing.
BHO lying is like the sun coming up. That the system fails to teach civic responsibility and the political system rewards that failure, and the political Parties put themselves before the country is the root.
This liar will leave in 3 years, but the problems will remain.

A true conman knows how to fabricate false outcomes to gull credulous marks by employing a hyena grin his victims misinterpret to be confidence inducing friendliness. At "home," the criminal conman drops his smile, of course, and becomes like Michael Corleone conspiring in a secret office with his paid assassins. Now, does this historical figure, Mr. O, meet in private with trusted allies where they knowingly and with malice of forethought plot our destruction? Or, is Obama just a Chauncy Gardner mouthing all the lines he was nursed on by his communist families from his mother to FMD to Harvard to Ayers to Soros? Is our ZeroKing the author and the actor, or just the actor? Or, is he truly insane? The supreme lunatic become the captain of a ship of fools? An analogy is Lady Gaga.

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/13/2014 10:16:38 PM     Post Reply
On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Palin on Sebelius Replacement Sylvia
Burwell: ´You Can´t Make This Stuff Up´
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/12/2014 5:03:32 PM     Post Reply
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
