The president takes the low road
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/6/2014 5:05:57 AM

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Compare Obama’s policies, behavior, and rhetoric pre-2008 versus post-2008.

Conservatives saw through him from Day One, or were at least suspicious.

Independents I’m sure feel betrayed on any number of levels.

Liberals knew his moderate sounding rhetoric was just to dupe the independents and the people who don’t pay attention.

Hey Ed! It´s not ´the White House´ but Obama. It´s not ´ ignoring inconvenient truths´. It´s called lying.

No low road here. It is the same road as before. Lies, propaganda, character assassination, all the Alinksy tricks.
Obie´s claims cannot be verified. All the details are protected by National Security. The details are classified at the highest level because Obie IS the US, and any harm to him is an attack on US. It worked so well for Indira Ghandi.
Besides, who will call him on his lies?

# 6 on target

O is a habitual narcissistic liar, without a ounce of integrity or humility; he has the audacity to demand that we respect his inane 21 year old, movie star antics, as he gleefully spends our country into a third world nation.(Not to mention: foreign policy, scandals, energy policy, defense, executive orders, religion or the welfare state.)

He has not done this alone...he has had lots of help. The primary issue can be described in one word Socialism. The msm, the regime, most of his party, and our educational system swoon for our nation to be socialist. Socialism measured by nature, by history, by individual freedom and by performance fails dramatically. Most of these nitwits don´t even know what socialism is, as they have been taught the evils of a free market and of America ´s wonderful history.

God is not dead. Pray, vote and volunteer to help in the 2016 election. The media will do every thing in it´s power to divide us, be aware.

...and then characterized them as a “stinkburger.” Really? Is this the state of our political discourse from the man who claimed he wanted to elevate the debate? Shouldn’t he have left the demeaning language to a shouting surrogate suitable for talk radio? I guess if you’ll go on “Between Two Ferns” to promote your agenda, you’re not too worried about belittling the office,...

One, we already know that our POTUS is a case of arrested development, stuck in adolescence despite holding an Office that usually tends to mature the one holding it.

Two, Obama "belittled the office" the moment he entered it when he returned the bust of Churchill to England. That should have been a warning to the Left that the world was dealing with a petulant, angry, spoiled child. The warning is only now beginning to make sense to the Left, though many still cannot afford to go public with their regrets.

The Oval Office and the White House residences will have to be exorcised and fumigated when the Obamas leave.

I agree with those who say this is nothing new. BO has always been low class, far beneath the office. This president is arrogant, narcissistic, boastful, belittling, angry, jealous, petulant, and petty.

Wait until after the elections if the Republicans gain control of the Senate. One of Reid´s primary functions has been to keep legislation off BO´s desk so BO could just sail above it all. If the House and Senate actually start to pass lots of legislation and it all ends up on BO´s desk and all he can say is "No, No, No!! These bills are all a bunch of stinkburgers!!!", it is going to go low very fast. And it will be very obvious who brought it so low.

One thing: there is no way anyone elected president in future can sink lower in behavior; no one needs an excuse to seize power, or respect laws. The first thing a conservative need to do is merely declare OBAMACARE null and void, along with all other unconstitutional acts . Just do it. Make no apologies or excuses. Obama has lowered the bar so far, the Dems have nowhere to go, no honor to uphold.

This "president" has been taking the low road his entire political life. Had Jack Ryan´s sealed divorce records opened. Hides his past from us. Lies every time he opens his pie hole. Embarrasses us with misused and mispronounced words. Doesn´t know Malvinas from Maldives, German from Austrian. Kowtows to Muslims. Ignores Christians except the pope. Insults us with childish language such as "stinkyburger."

This "president" is only at home among other communists, and even then only if those other communists are dark-skinned and hate America.

Any other President would have been Impeached long before now for Obama´s lawlessness, but the Progressive Representatives keep him in to take down this country.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Millennials´ Political Views
Don´t Make Any Sense
Atlantic, by Derek Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 4:45:39 AM     Post Reply
Millennial politics is simple, really. Young people support big government, unless it costs any more money. They´re for smaller government, unless budget cuts scratch a program they´ve heard of. They´d like Washington to fix everything, just so long as it doesn´t run anything. That´s all from a new Reason Foundation poll surveying 2,000 young adults between the ages of 18 and 29. Millennials´ political views are, at best, in a stage of constant metamorphosis and, at worst, "totally incoherent," as Dylan Matthews puts it. It´s not just the Reason Foundation. In March, Pew came out with a similar survey of Millennial attitudes

The idea of pulling nearly all American troops out of Afghanistan in 2016 suddenly seems pretty lousy, after so much of Iraq has collapsed under a similar scenario. When President Obama announced his plan to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2016, U.S. intelligence said it could be done safely. Now, intelligence and military leaders are privately warning that the U.S. counterterrorism forces could be needed there for much longer. During the internal administration debate earlier this year over the way forward in Afghanistan, the CIA supported a plan to degrade al Qaeda to the point that America could withdraw

AUSTIN — A Southern heritage group defeated Texas on Monday, celebrating a court decision expected to force Texas to issue license plates adorned with the Confederate battle flag. A federal appeals panel ruled 2-1 that the Department of Motor Vehicles had violated the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ free speech rights and engaged in “viewpoint discrimination” when it rejected its specialty plate in 2011. The judgment rekindled a loud debate among those who say the symbol honors Confederate heritage and others who see it as racially offensive and hurtful.

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“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.
