Majority Say Obama Administration
Is Incompetent and
Obama Is Not Even Paying Attention

Independent Journal Review, by Kyle Becker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/23/2014 5:47:00 AM

A clear majority of the American people say that the Obama administration is not competent to manage the affairs of the U.S. government, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday. Those who believe the Obama administration is incompetent weigh in at a clip of 53-42 – a margin of 11 points. In addition, more people believe that the president is not even paying attention to what’s going on than the contrary: 47-45. (That may be because the president finds out about all those “phony scandals” by reading about them in the news.) The president gets a negative score on a

"When Obama took office, ... Only one in five disapproved of the president "

In his scant record in the Senate, Obama was ranked as the most left-wing liberal out of 100.

This train wreck is supposed to be a surprise?

There is no question that Obama is a disaster for our nation and that we are paying a horrible price for out mistake of putting him in office. The only question is whether his departure will leave us the strength to pull out of this catastrophe. I believe it will, because I believe that more than the Democratic Party is being destroyed. I believe that the media’s hold on the minds of the American people will not survive the shock of seeing what our misplaced trust in them has wrought. And if we can ever get back to the point of thinking for ourselves instead of mindlessly following the dictates of a destructive enemy, we can rebuild our great nation.

Incompetent and not even paying attention? And we were expecting another George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, General Ike or Sir Ronaldus Magnus?...For crying out loud! The young man has never held a regular 8 to 5 job in the private sector...Never punched a time clock or had to meet a weekly payroll...Never served a day in military uniform...And never previously managed anything, to include a Chi-Town Popeye´s Chicken & Biscuits drive-thru window!

Mr . Obama may be inattentive because he knows far too little about his proposals..hence, he can´t help much.

Or he may know that the ACA was designed to fail, thereby creating opportunities for the government to take more and more control of health care, and out lives.

How can anyone say he is incompetent?
He has single handedly almost brought this great nation to her knees, and sowed the seeds for her complete downfall.

The blame can go to the wimpy Republicans for not leading an anti-socialist charge and empowering the low intelligence voters by not forcing them to work for their subsistence.

My optimism for America expired a long time ago. Throughout history oftentimes the majority in many societies have admitted openly and privately that the ruler, leaders, and government were terrible; however, it only takes a couple of sheepdogs to control a herd of sheep. The majority of Americans today are sheep. Until there is severe pain and discomfort across all economic levels of society America will continue her rapid descent.

Obama can frog march an innocent white female Tea Party member onto the White House lawn, shoot her in the head, and with live video feeds, turn to the cameras and say, "Let me be clear, I just demonstrated why we need stricter gun laws. That´s why I´m going to propose my Don´t Crush Puppy Skulls Act immediately to Congress." The MSM would find Mitch McConnell to get his reaction. Mitch´s reaction would be a pathetic letter of concern to the White House. The story about the murder would immediately be "Why the GOP are Gun Loving Racists Who Crush Puppy Skulls." If the above sounds ridiculous, you´re still asleep or you´re Karl Rove.

The man-child president has committed fourteen high crimes and misdemeanors in the last several months, on live TV and there is not a whisper about it from anyone in the GOP and there´s a story about Obama´s incompetence and him not paying attention? REALLY???

There was a great cartoon yesterday on the Lucianne front page about Obama playing the race card. He claimed he was elected because the voters liked his vision of a post racial america but the ones who didn´t vote for him were racists. Despite this Sharpton thinks he should play the race card MORE! He probably will and in the process he will totally discredit this overused tactic. We must all push back against this nonsense with cartoons like that until everyone laughs when the race card it played!

Once again, someone has to point out that it is the Republican´s fault? How about the voters in November 2008?

The tactic of blaming the Republicans is typical of Obama but coming from our own base plays right into the opponent´s hands. How about the blame be placed right where it should be? On Obama.

There´s no doubt that Obama is a low IQ nitwit and surrounds himself with like communist of the same mentality. This cabal of nitwits couldn´t run a third world village much less a nation which they have ruined in their quest for utopia and drug induced dreams from the sixties.
What is appalling is the following he still has. This is an indicator of the ignorance which grips this nation.
Incompetent and not paying attention is too generous. Ignorant and clueless is more like it.

Incompetent and not paying attention is a way too kind means of saying it. He´s a liar and a fraud, an America-hating ignorant pothead protecting his puppet masters´ agenda mainly by flinging the shopworn race card and using thug tactics with the blessings of a corrupt media.

His pretense of not paying attention is nothing more than a weak attempt at plausible deniability. Let´s see, he lies that he knows nothing about Benghazi (but knew enough to repeatedly lie about the unrelated video), Fast and Furious, the Statue of Liberty flyby, IRS intimidation, DOJ targeting certain reporters (Rosen and Attkisson for starters), NSA, the ZeroCare website, Pigford, Solyndra, et al ad nauseam. But ironically, he always seems to be up to speed in no time if a third rate basketball player comes out of the closet, which not only points out his priorities, but also gives the enemedia more squirrels behind which to hide his ongoing lawlessness.

Where was this majority in 2008 and 2012 when the damage might have been mitigated?

I think Barry is conniving and deceitful , but, I also agree with # 17.
I think he´s an absolute moron- this is your brain on drugs.
And pathologically lazy.
The amount of television that he admits to watching on a regular basis is jaw dropping .
Not to mention his daily does of ESPN and basketball games , college and pro .
No adult with a job and family could possibly have as much free time as Barry does.
That the POUTUS and Commander in Chief has so much leisure time , especially during war time ,
is absolutely appalling.
Last week, Dopey referred to the Dominican Republic as the Dominican Republican
and never corrected himself.
It´s shocking how quickly we´ve gone from the war on drugs to the war on sobriety.

As someone who has studied a good bit of American history, it´s amazing what this country has become. There was a time when just about everyone was interested in politics and what their elected officials were doing. Nowadays, it seems that very few of the populace even knows who is in elected office much less being concerned about what they are doing. What has happened to the country? And those of us here at LCom just about the last vestige of citizens that keep up with current affaires and the men/women that are engaged in them? What is the majority of Americans interested in? Just a few more freebies from the government? It´s really no wonder that Obozo has been to run this nation into the swamp. Not enough people care about it./rant

Wow, what do you think they would think if the corrupt establishment media put out the news about the Alinsky method? Then they might find him and his cabal more efficient and effective than anyone knows.

But some of us watched Bill (BJ) Clinton skate and will most likely see herself back in power with a new Hillarycare to ram into place.

Imagine...if they had been informed or would inform themselves? In the dark and afraid to look the beast in the face?

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

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

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F.

Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

Holder’s undermining of the

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

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

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

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

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
