Obama´s addiction to speeches: The
more he gives, the less people listen

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 1/16/2014 9:14:36 AM

President Obama knows he´s in trouble with the American people. Yes, his approval has slipped further since Christmas, down to 40%, worse than GW Bush´s at the same point. But you can tell Obama knows it anyway because he´s fallen back on his path of preferred political action. He´s giving speeches. Many speeches. Campaign speeches. Roll-up-the-sleeves speeches. Point-his-finger speeches. Call-on-others-to-do-something speeches. Obama’s never met anything he couldn’t throw a speech at. It´s what he does. And beats working.

So he´s all talk and no action- except bad action for America. So he´s a do-nothing - but then again, aren´t all dictators do nothings- except when they take over your country. Øbama has an agenda and it is poison for America- like the victims of Jim Jones- Americans are gladly drinking the kool-aid Øbama sweetly offers.

You know the old, ´you can´t make a first impression twice´. The Irish PM had arrived when zero was just a few days in the WH. This lazy hustler read the TP welcoming himself! That´s the only thing this community organizing narcissist is capable of doing and has said so, reading of the TP! He calls it ´giving a speech´!

We change the channel. If we are waiting for something else on the same channel or if the speech is being broadcast on many channels, making it impossible to avoid, we mute the sound.

As usual, Malcolm Alexander delivers a great analytical essay. And as his headline writer tells us (what we already suspected), as he gives more speeches, the people listen less.

No speaker can keep regurgitating the same old tired remarks, faux folksiness, and bogus promises without eventually losing his audience.

Could be that´s how he wants it. No one listens so no one hears. If it weren´t for talk radio and a few conservative blogs we wouldn´t even know the man behind the mask here. The conservatives are the ones exposing the fraud and deceit. The MSM and congress don´t touch the hypocrisy and lies of this administration.

For many years whenever the president nears any crowd, a Secret Service agent walks ahead along the rope line ordering everyone to keep hands out of their pockets where agents can see them. That´s less of a problem these days. Because the hands of most everyone in such locations are holding cellphones to take photos of the nearby celebrity. And if there´s a campaign underway requiring the politician to ingratiate himself, possibly a selfie with the big guy himself. It's priceless political PR -- and free. Recently during the Boston Red Sox' White House visit, pitcher David Ortiz took a selfie with President Obama, whose grin could not have

The American media endure a soiled reputation in the United States these days. Rightly so too often. Many of its members failed their sentry duty during the run-up to the 2008 presidential elections, and oftentimes since covering only selectively positive parts of Barack Obama´s reign of error. Today´s column reminds us there is media and then there is media. Anja Niedringhaus was a member of the other media. A photojournalist for the Associated Press, she covered conflict for 20-plus years from the Balkans and Libya to Kuwait and Afghanistan. She´s dead now.

Hi, I’m U.S. Senator Tim Scott from the great state of South Carolina. As we all know, the most important issue facing our nation today is job creation. Unfortunately, it’s been that way for the last six years. But instead of tackling the causes of unemployment and underemployment, too many politicians are focused only on the effects and on making political points.

Hi, everybody. Today, our economy is growing and our businesses are consistently generating new jobs. But decades-long trends still threaten the middle class. While those at the top are doing better than ever, too many Americans are working harder than ever, but feel like they can’t get ahead. That’s why the budget I sent Congress earlier this year is built on the idea of opportunity for all.

Administration agencies are currently revising nutritional recommendations that will guide federal food and meal purchases for years after Barack Obama is playing golf behind his presidential library. The federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee -- these are the folks who brought us the carb-heavy food pyramid now deemed erroneous -- is meeting these days to update nutritional guidelines to conform with new scientific evidence and with the determination of First Lady Michelle Obama to change America´s eating habits.

Acknowledgment from the podium. It´s one of the most powerful public tools available to any American politician. And it´s free. Thank their good friend so-and-so in front of a large crowd. It´s a predictable staple of Barack Obama´s repetitive rhetoric nowadays. [Snip] So, it was unusually revealing Tuesday afternoon when an ebullient Obama launched his ObamaCare ´enrollment´ victory lap with not one single acknowledgment. He was not going to share this self-congratulatory moment with anyone.

The Obama administration today will tout impressive enrollment numbers for ObamaCare with the confident precision that can only come from the knowledge that no one else is counting. No one else can count the numbers. Because the Obama administration controls access to all the numbers. It´s probably a coincidence, but that is exactly the way votes are counted by the Chicago Democratic machine. And if the Obama crowd is strutting for the media over enrollment numbers, Americans aren´t hearing more about his growing list of foreign policy embarrassments.

Late-night comedians and their writers pounce on the day´s news as their primary source to twist and distort into laughs. Russia, of course, remains a hot item following the "uncontested arrival" of its troops in Crimea. Reflecting the diminished approval of President Obama, the late-night shows have been aiming their laughs at him more. Even Jimmy Fallon, who kicked off his Jay Leno replacement tour with a Michelle Obama interview, has aimed some laughs at his presidential pal. Although he quickly returns with something barbed at Republicans.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
