Into Year 6, Obama admits he’s clueless
Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/24/2013 4:40:47 AM

What a depressing presidency Barack Obama has wrought. Waltzing into office five years ago with the media’s shameless aid on a high-school-style campaign pledge of “Hope and Change,” the former community organizer from Chicago spent his last press conference of the year apologizing for everything he’s done wrong — then announcing he’s “eager to skip town” to Hawaii for “a couple days of sleep and sun.” Well, 17, but who’s counting. One truly has to wonder how the vaunted White House staff of advisers and sycophants came up with the battle plan for Friday’s presser, the last of a terrible year:

This pathetic punk isn´t even qualified to be a door greeter at your local Walmart, with all due respect to Walmart door greeters. Why he even bothers with these press conferences, and the media´s continuous worshipfull pandering is nothing short of astounding.
Imagine any of us LDotters getting away with no accountability at our respective jobs....no I can´t either.

Whether we want to admit it or not the old media still has a lot of clout in this country.They could all be operating at a loss and still have the same clout.For one thing they drove the republicans to their sorry image,admittingly they did it to themselves in large part by making Boehner the face of the party. I mean who´s going to rally around this guy.Boehner has friends and allies who don´t want to see him hurt personally or they would ask him to step aside and make Gowdy the face of the party.The good ole boy network hurts the party´s image and they need some fresh faces.

But more importantly,they were as all over Obamacare as much as the red media and that´s the only reason Obama´s in a hole right now.The media has willfully ignored all the other Obama debacles or his approvals would be in the teens.

The red media probably only has a 40% reach in this country and that´s mostly preaching to the choir.Limbaugh is the biggest proof of this by having the largest conservative audience there is and Clinton and Obama survived his carping to win twice each.

It´s easy for obama and his media allies to bury stories because they control all the internet´s main homepage.They mix celebrity garbage in with what Obama´s doing to make him look tuned inwith the pop culture.You can be a huge fad one day and a nobody the next.

Road to Damascus

OBAMA: [sipping a Mai Tai on the beach during conference call] It’s bad, isn’t it?
JOE BIDEN: Yeah, Boss.
OBAMA: How bad?
BIDEN: At your impeachment trial, I’ll vote to convict if there’s a tie.
But don’t worry; it’ll never get that far.
OBAMA: Thank God! I was afraid . . .
JAY CARNEY: The Senate won’t need Biden’s swing vote, sir.
OBAMA: Oh. What happens, happens. There’s always my family.
VALERIE JARRETT: Michelle, her mother, and the kids left for Chicago last night, Barack.
OBAMA: Nobody told me. At least I have my trusted aides like you and Jay and . . .
CARNEY: We’re back in D. C. getting Joe ready for the big time, sir.
OBAMA: [looking around] Hey, where are my Secret Service people?
VALERIE: Um, your detail is now augmenting mine.
OBAMA: I’m going to walk to town, get a coconut shaved ice and a coupla chili dogs, and give all this some thought.

[On the road, a blinding white light stops Obama cold; a voice comes out of the sky]

Barack, Barack. Have you forgotten everything I taught you?

OBAMA: Saul? Saul Alinsky, is that you?
ALINSKY: Who else? In a minute I must return to the pit. Listen carefully.

Go back to Washington. Citing Congress’s abysmal ratings, dissolve the legislature and call for new elections in 2016. Summon your advisors, your PR people, and your bundlers. Tell them you’ve just had a ‘’Road to Damascus’’ moment,” the scales have fallen from your eyes, and you now know what you must do.
OBAMA: Which is?
ALINSKY: Spend the next three years finishing what you started: the destruction of the American way of life. In time, there will be a place for you down here. I’ll use my influence to get you a spot with a little draft.

The presidency of Barack Obama is like the plane ride of the 9/11 hijackers that was thwarted by Todd Beamer and the heroic citizens onboard. America is the ultimate target of that plane. Obama and his suicide band of socialists are flying it crazily. Some on board are scared. Some are becoming aware that it is purposely being flown to wreak the destruction of America.

Where are the Todd Beamers in Congress? In the Supreme Court? Where are the everyday ordinary but extraordinary citizens who know he must be stopped at all cost?

#6, The Republicans have to WANT to save it. I don´t see many who will risk the media firestorm or political pressure to do what is needed. Can´t for the life of me understand how these men and women can be silent when they have the ability to do something. The leadership is abysmal. Like minded conservatives should form a coalition and go around the leadership and call a press conference on the Capitol steps to clearly define their solutions. Waiting for the Republican leadership to act, is futile. They are either incompetent or complicit. They have missed a golden opportunity to lead and they should be ashamed that they could not build a real opposition to the biggest threat this country has ever faced. When they could have made a difference, they failed miserably and the people will not forget.

What an incredibly horrible embarrassment for our country. We have elected an arrogant, egocentric, incompetent child to lead the greatest country in the history of mankind. In five short years he has brought us to the brink of collapse. It is obvious that this much damage to the republic could only be accomplished if done purposefully. He is a thinly veiled enemy of the country he is supposed to be leading. Everyone knows it and yet he survives. That there are media institutions ready and willing to carry his water is a testament to how low their standards have fallen. The fifth estate which was supposed to act as a check against uncontrolled power has instead become the dictator´s cheering squad. God help us if we don´t do something to correct this gross error soon.

My burning question is ~ when the country goes to Hell in a handcart, do the libs think they will not be hurt too? Do they not own stock or 401K´s? Won´t they have to use a wheel barrow full of $$ just to buy bread like conservatives will? Will they not be required to stand in a food line with the conservatives? When there is another terrorist attack in this country, will only conservatives be killed or injured?

A couple weeks back, the National Enquirer reported that Barry had the blues because everyone hated him. Go ahead and believe that, imagine 17 days of him stewing in his own juices and enjoy what´s left of the Christmas season.

The Old Guard would like to save the Republic, or at least our way of life, if they had a clue what that is. Sadly it seems, just get along is a way of political strategy to the GOP.

And that damn Tea Party, calling for a return to American values, Constitutional government, freedom of religion and getting government out of our personal lives.

Who do these people think they are... voters.
Get McCain on the phone and see if he wants to run again.

What amazes me and at the same time gets my goat are the Charles Krauthammers in the world.
We all know he voted for Obama once and possibly twice before he went rabid against the klutzy clueless idiot.
I knew who Obama was in 2006 while he was in Chicago and I´m not from there. Alan Keyes gave us plenty of insight about Obama and Valarie Jarrett.
Obama wasn´t going to win anything with just the black vote it was the stupid whites that helped elect him. It was about one thing only, his skin pigmentation.
Obama is a communist and he is not going to stop as long as the do nothing Republicans act the way they do. Washington is awash with power hungry, tax cheats, taxpayer money stealing thieves. We have no government.
Judges overture elections, there´s a communist cabal of know nothing misfits with Obama as their leader and preparing for 2016 to roll over Republicans with another communist, Hillary Clinton.
Ted Cruz is our only hope not Chris, where´s the buffet, Christie.
Obama will ´NOT´ be impeached he will get his six years and circumvent the Constitution at every turn while the Republicans act like a Jeff Durnam dummy. Color me mad!

That´s a great question, #12. The same goes for the head liberal in the White House and President Jarrett. When everything is burning and the people are storming the gates in Washington, what good is their power and influence going to be then? They may have some good hiding places but they will be found. AA1 can´t stay in the air forever. No other country in the world is going to offer asylum to the US Government Mafia without taking all of their treasure.

Liberals must think that the underground bunkers built to house the ruling elite when the balloon goes up have room for all liberals. They will soon find that, like the animals in Orwell´s great book, "some pigs are more equal than others." I plan to form a huge hunting party and reservations are being taken now. There will be no bag limit.

I agree with the posters who cannot understand why the Obot faithful cannot see they are also passengers on the coming train wreck. They are either the lib-elite who think their messiah will protect/bail them out, or they are really not the smartest people in the room. (gasp!) I’m just a dumb farmer from fly-over and I had it figured out before he was elected the first time. Dr. Krauthammer and the state media members who are just now waking up disgust me.

Maybe it’s some sort of Ivory Tower miasma—fogging their brains and keeping them from seeing truth.

# 2 The msm socialist media has immensely more power/control than the conservative media. They control all of the major networks, all but one of the major news net works, almost all of the print news including AP, reuters, and others major news sources. They control practically all the talk programs. They all work in concert with one another on all major stories and they can either bury the news on page 14, not report it, distort it, slant it, not investigate it or lie about it. They spin the news together, as they best can help their socialist agenda giving the right a crum from time to time, when there is no other choice. Hollywood is in on the gig, too. They all should be tried as traitors to our nation. Folks wonder why the conservatives are scared to say a word...it is the corrupt anti American msm. If we had an honest media, we wouldn´t be in such a sorry state...as we find ourselves today.

#11 is mostly correct about DeLay - - but let´s place the blame for the 0bama disaster squarely where it belongs - - on the head of George W. Bush.

We waited our entire adult lifetimes for the Pubbies to control both the White House and Congress - - and when it happened we expected Bush to expand and solidify the Reagan Revolution.

But - - Bush didn´t want to be Reagan. He wanted to be LBJ and/or FDR. So instead of eliminating the New Deal and Great Society programs - - Bush expanded them.

He was aided and abetted by craven traitors like DeLay, Lott, Hastert, Stevens, Specter, et al - - but the bulk of the blame for the treachery goes to Bush. And we´ve all been screwed since - - 0bama only being the personification of the treason.

#5, might I suggest that Duck Dynasty and its leader, Phil Robertson, as the answer to your question? They aren´t real pretty - shaved and neat, but they may be the best we have right now.

I don´t think Todd Beamer and the other heroes of 9/11 thought that morning that they should look a certain way for their appearance "on stage."

Thinking about what our country has been through since 9/11 breaks my heart. Satan was lurking in the shadows before 2008 and 2012, but now it´s almost as if he feels comfortable coming out into the open.

When 9/11/2001 happened, President George W. Bush rose to the occasion with courage and determination to face down Evil. After eight years of relentless pounding by the Democrats and the MSM, the Lurking Shadow thought he had "accomplished his mission" to not only tarnish President Bush but also to destroy those who still believed in American Exceptionalism and that "God shed His grace on thee" as the song goes.

It is my ardent hope that there is a special place in Hades reserved for those who tried to smear President Bush and America. The two entities, MSM and the conniving Democrats were, IMHO, the Lurking Satan who were just hacked off after the 2000 election when they lost some of their power.

I suspect that Obama is just a puppet of someone or something more sinister, but until he is refuted by a huge majority of Americans in 2014, his strangle-hold will only tighten.

Bless you, #4 - great post - it helps to cheer me up.

Obama´s "Incredible Shrinking Presidency" reminds me of some lost episode of the Twilight Zone. Some schmuck makes a deal with the Devil and enjoys all the glamour and riches in the world, for a while. Then the Devil wants his payment due (the poor schmuck´s soul) but the schmuck refuses. Then one thing after another goes wrong, the schmuck loses all his riches and fame. So go ahead and make your payment to the Devil, you schmuck Obama and get out of our lives!

Years ago, when it was first revealed that some young legislator from Chicago, with a strange-sounding name people kept getting confused with Osama bin Laden, had a record of voting “Present” on most of the bills up for his consideration, that was a “tell,” as they say in the world of card sharks.

By voting “Present,” he didn’t commit. Rather, he played it safe. His handlers sold that as being the sign of a deep thinker. I perceived it as clueless. Gutless, too! But, what the heck did I know!

It took His Nibs five years to finally admit he’s clueless? Five years? What took ya so long, Barack? Or whatever your name is.

Today we have another exemplary Lucianne selected article where the Ldotter comments, many of them timeless classics, are not only superior to the original article, but are the most accurate voice of reality in America today at this crucial moment in our lives.
Oh, to be in the same room with bigfatslob, The Architect, Joe van, Spidey, sagman, planetgeo, Rinctum, Strike 3, rocket scientist, me opinionated Nah, and so many others, then top it off with ringleader, Lucianne, and her tireless staff! There would be a lengthy world shaking party providing hours of Youtubes, off market underworld videos that would result in the firings of all the destroyers we hate, from DC to New York, from Boehner to Sawyer! It would be the closest thing to a peaceful world changing event since Paddy Chayefsky´s
monumental classic scene of Peter Finch shouting to his TV watching world, for all to go to the window, and shout out, I´M MAD AS HELL AND I´M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!
Ldotters are the greatest, thanks to Lucianne !

To try to give a reason that today´s libs, dims, progressives, etc. actually believe the garbage they spill consistently is that they actually think that THEY are the ones that have all the information in the world to "make it work". Somehow, the fact that socialism, communism, etc. have never worked in the history of mankind never inters their minds. (they don´t have brains) So we who are capable to read and understand history can easily see the train wreck that is coming down the tracks. And our biggest problem is how to stop it. I firmly believe that it´s going to take brutal action. After all, doesn´t the wise surgeon remove the cancer in order to save the patient?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Indiana troops first stop

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner.

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. 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. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. 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)

After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
