How Obama ´Gets Things Done´
Wall Street Journal, by Bret Stephens

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/17/2014 8:40:41 PM

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say. But the big story of last week as far as the president is concerned is his appearance alongside

A chance to go for the throat and this lame excuse of a reporter ends his "tirade" thus:

"But with Vladimir Putin trying to step on the West´s throat, I´ll take President Mom Jeans any day."

Oh please "leader of the free world while it lasts under your term, get some balls.

We knew that it would be bad back in 2008, but this is off the freaking charts.

God gave and continues to give Israel second chances. Apparently, America will not be cut the same amount of slack.

Can´t say that I blame Him.

Things that serious people consider light weight in the culture, such as Justin Bieber and late night tv and all those represent, are all that really matter to this person. Well, that and "looking good." Actually being serious about grave matters don´t come up on his radar.

I don´t like the false choice we are given at the end of this article:

Barack Obama is probably the coolest president this country will ever have. But with Vladimir Putin trying to step on the West´s throat, I´ll take President Mom Jeans any day.

Of course Americans don´t want Putin on our throats, but neither do we want the adolescent we now have in the White House. At least Putin is a grown man who thinks in grownup-speak.

Obama may be "the coolest President" but I also don´t want our president to be "cool". I want him to be cool-headed but passionate about American liberty and freedom. This POTUS is neither.

FTA: A cavalier foreign policy by an inattentive president that elicits the contempt of the people it intends to punish ultimately encourages their aggression as well.

As many of us have long suspected, Obama is a top to bottom clusterflock who thinks he´s industrious when he´s lazy, well-informed when he´s appallingly ignorant about everything with the possible exception of the content of SportsCenter, and a "patriot" who loves his country so much he wants to change it fundamentally.

He has done a good job of bamboozling the fools who voted him into office and have a lot of hopes invested in him because of his skin color, but he´s anything but cool. At least to this humble observer, being cool means swimming comfortably and effectively like a shark in all waters, being at the absolute top of the food chain, the master of all he surveys.

The problems Obama was elected to solve--every one of them--is beyond his ability to understand, let alone solve. If Obama were determined to damage this country deliberately, he´d do nothing differently from what he has done. What a disaster he is. He governs as effectively as he throws a baseball.

Too scared to ever be cool. Think golf.
Not even Fox News is permitted to show Hussein taking a single swing at a golf ball. That would be cool. We are privileged to see this pleasant looking suit model get off and on helicopters, and his daily Air Force One pleasure costly plane rides,
BUT we are not allowed to see any golf ..... At all.
How´s that for brainwashing censorship?
Are there any secretly taken paparazzi golf photos on YouTube? Or is YouTube censoring, too?
Slick Willie played golf, no photo censorship. But, Willie cheated almost every hole, took "Mulligans", extra shots not scored. So you could not see him cheat in photos.
National Review magazine did a cover article on Clinton
and his chronic cheating, interviews with caddies, and the ultimate word about golf. ...... Honor. The most important element in golf is each player´s, honesty.

It would be a safe bet that honesty, or lack of it, is one strong reason we are never allowed to see Zero playing golf.

President Obama’s domestic agenda seems to pursue a variety of disparate goals, but in reality he was put in office to achieve one goal only: to support the Party by supporting its infrastructure, what I call the Democratic National Machine. Most Americans are aware of the Democratic Machines that ran large cities such as Chicago, New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. Of these, the Chicago Democratic Machine had the longest history and its strategies are still practiced by President Obama.

America’s current political strife stems largely from a simple misunderstanding that occurred back in November 2007. Many of us thought we were voting for a candidate for the office of president, but Barack Obama thought he was running for Philanthropist-in-Chief, a position that would entitle him to skip the part where he actually had to earn wealth before giving it away. White House policy is being driven by an über-left version of social justice that has deep roots in liberation theology and Marxism.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
