Obama’s rough 2013
prompts a new blueprint

Washington Post, by Scott Wilson

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/25/2014 11:07:20 PM

An internal White House assessment concludes that President Obama must distance himself from a recalcitrant Congress after being badly damaged last year by legislative failures, a government shutdown and his own missteps. Obama has said that his fraught relationship with Congress, especially after Republicans won the House in 2010, complicated his ability to promote his agenda. But for the first time, following what many allies view as a lost year, the White House is reorganizing itself to support a more executive-focused presidency and inviting the rest of the government to help. The new approach comes after weeks of

FTA: "after weeks of internal White House debate over a single question: What went wrong in 2013?"

Obama´s continual screw-ups have exceeded the MSM´s ability to cover them up. That´s it in a nutshell.

A lot of words to cover up the fact that Obama is a failure. Never designed, never built, never run, never operated, never improved, never streamlined anything.

No executive skills, but plenty of Marxist ideology. A man in love with the idea of himself. And no other skills. A complete fraud.

Predicting Obama is easy. If getting something done requires him to negotiate, it won´t get done. If making a decision requires him to understand a complex situation, the decision will not be made. If he is unable to do something or unable to decide something, then he declares that something irrelevant to the rest of the country else is his highest priority. If the MSM cannot easily cover up the fact that he can neither act or think, then Obama starts calling the opposition disloyal or other nasty names.

The main thing Obama´s worried about right now is low turnout for the election.They´re disappointed that more latinos haven´t signed up for Squandercare.,thinking that would be a turnout machine of in between citizens.

This clown is clever by half. He makes proposals he knows the GOP won´t go for,blames them for gridlock,then says he has to take exe. action.

His proposals will be a bonanza for his donors and supporters while future generations will be stuck with the debt.

The GOOD THING about Obama by-passing Congress is that his FAILED regulations and legislation blame goes on HIS HEAD .....not on the head of Congress...who he is constantly blaming for everything. Since he´s taken Congress out of the decision making...then it´s all Obama´s fault. Who then can the LIBERALS blame when Obama makes the decisions and signs in laws all by himself?

The first time Obama went around congress, they should have been pounding down his door in anger while holding the legal paperwork in their hands. We have a bunch of do-nothings who let him get away with breaking the law. But yes, it does put the blame right there on his pointed little head.

What this means is that the tyrant that the Founders feared has now chosen to act. The test will be whether the Constitution itself will be enough to contain him.

Soros is now in the WH in the person of Podesta. Podesta will openly guide Obama´s Imperial movements.

I feel like we´re moving into the final episode of a Greek tragedy (but I´m betting on the Constitution to prevail).

Obama re-paints the walls of tyranny a new color ("Prompt" red) and continues on unabated with his Marxism. WAPO swoons; the FSA, stronger than ever, continues to watch Honey Boo Boo; and the GOP, proving in 2012 no one snatches defeat from the jaws of victory quite like they do, improves its courageous ability to fall down, roll over and soil itself whenever Mr Obama whispers boo in their ears. Impressive indeed.

Such a long article to state so very little. The journalist must need a chiropractor after bending and twisting into such knots to portray the President as the Innocent.

Obama set the tone in Washington for hyper-partisanship. When he told John McCain at the first meeting with Senators that "the election is over John. I won" was Obama throwing down the gauntlet of hyper-partisanship. He did that because he had both houses of Congress in his aisle, and proceeded to pass huge legislative monsters without any input nor vote by the GOP. Strictly partisan when it favored him and was his choice to make. So he chose selfishly.

If Harry Reid didn´t KILL every single bill passed in the House, it might improve the environment. But Reid does kill every bill (well over 1,000 and counting). Not having a budget while over spending by a trillion or more each year doesn´t help create warm and fuzzies with the GOP, either.

Just thinking... what if we woke up one morning and Obama had just disappeared along with his phony records. Would anyone care or look for him. Would Michelle even know for a week or two. Would there even be a void in the once free world.

Would Biden know who is second in command. Is it possible that Biden could even be lucid for two consecutive weeks. How long would we have to wait until we knew Obama had voted un-Present. What is the statute of limitations on such a blank goner. If he disappeared and nobody knows where to look, did he actually exist.

Would historians just leave these pages blank like the rest of his past. Perhaps he had been sucked up by a black hole.

Perhaps I should just go back and watch the golf tournament on TV from Torrey Pines 20 miles North of me. The spot where Tiger disappeared yesterday and Phil the day before.

Social Security stops trying

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

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

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

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

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

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

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

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
