Obama’s annoyance with
Congress boils over

Washington Post, by Dan Balz

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/2/2014 10:35:29 PM

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

Mr. Soetoro will do anything to divert the nation´s attention from Megyn Kelly´s BLOCKBUSTER interview on FOX with Bill Ayers. Ayers wrote Soetoro´s memoir about "Race and Inheritence," and started Mr Soetoro´s adventure in the White House in his own living room. Bill Ayers is the domestic terrorist Mr Soetoro strives to be.

There is no "gridlock." Obama wants to put through more leftist programs the American people don´t want, and the Republicans oppose them. Obama won´t budge, insisting it´s his way or the highway. He refuses to enforce laws he doesn´t like, and the Republicans have figured out they can´t trust a thing he says. His word has NO value. Actually, LESS than no value. Since EVERYONE now knows it has no value, anyone who believes anything he says would be viewed as a fool. So that´s that. No gridlock. Just stubborn insistence on getting his own way all the time, right now, on everything, and blaming everyone else when anyone says "no." Everyone has his number.

Obama thinks he is king and everyone should do what he wants. As a supposed constitutional "scholar" (ha ha) he has no concept of government in this country. Combine that with the fact that he hasn´t an ounce of leadership capability and you see where we are in this country. It is idiots like this twit at the WP that give this affirmative action president a pass and blame everyone else for problems than the person where the blame belongs.

Complete joke. As others have said there´s anything but gridlock--massive changes occur at lightning speed. Obama controls both the Senate and the House and everyone knows it. The GOP has been dying for open borders for decades-it´s no secret. Obama has just erased our southern border and no elected officials have complained other than occasional photo ops or sound bites. They don´t care because they don´t have to. They can do anything to us and we can´t stop them. If you have no border you don´t have a country. All government agencies should be closed down and the military dismantled. We have no country. This has been happening gradually but now it´s full force. The law protecting Central Americans from deportations was passed by George Bush on Jan. 1, 2008. The Wall St. Journal has advocated a 5 word Constitutional amendment continuously since the 1980s: There shall be open borders. We´re supposed to think the GOP is looking out for us which of course they´re not. Obama´s re-election saved Boehner´s life and everyone knows it.

Hearing the whiner-in-chief complain that Congress has not acted and that we don´t have a "plan." boils my blood. We have a plan, and it´s clearly articulated in his job description and the laws of the land, our land. Obama and others before him with the same job decided not to perform their legal obligation. That doesn´t make it Congresses problem to solve.

Now we need a whole new approach? Just do your job and protect the border, there now you have a plan. My work here is done.

Ok a bit more detail, use the National Guard, team up with State and Local entities including citizen militias. Build the fence, shoot rubber bullets, tear gas turn them back. Pick up the phone call Ricky Nieto (El´Presedente) let him know all aid has been stopped until we get our soldier back and full cooperation in our efforts to guard the border. Then with the time remaining on your phone plan keep calling South to inform the invading countries that their aid has been stopped. Time to stand on our hind legs and show some teeth.

It is amazing that the Washington Post, and its very own Dan Balz, believe a president is entitled to get everything he wants even when elected members of Congress do not agree with him. Perhaps a totalitarian dictator is what Obama and the WaPo want, but so far the nation does not want a totalitarian dictator. Were it not for the Republican Congress, our nation would be in much worse trouble than Obama and the Democrat Senate have gotten us into.

Don´t be fooled. Obama may whine but he loves gridlock. What he can´t abide is being expected to act Presidential and attempt to bring the two sides together on any issue. He does not want compromise. He wants absolute obedience and that is why you see the shameful juvenile temper tantrums. Nothing less than complete agreement is enough for the boy king. He would be better suited to sit on a throne or at the head of a fascist government. He truly believes he is brilliant and should never be questioned. He is a poor man´s Lucifer who in his pride desired to be exalted higher than God. Both are pathological narcissists and will get their comeuppance.

Does he really believe this?

“Republicans in Congress, they’re patriots, they love their country, they love their families,” he said from the Key Bridge. “They just have a flawed theory of the economy that they can’t seem to get past. .?.?. That’s their worldview. I’m sure they sincerely believe it. It’s just not accurate. It does not work.”

It worked just fine until Obama got elected. Has he noticed that? Or are his myriad failures so devastating to his narcissistic psyche that he is lashing out blaming the Republicans? I believe he knows he´s a dud but must, to save his image, resort to desperate wrong-headed rhetoric.

It is not a pretty thing to watch an ant under a magnifying glass in the hot sun.

And he´ll stamp his feet, purse his purple lips, and whine to the nearest lapdog media until he gets his way. He won. S/.

The Crybaby-in-Chief is whining because congress is balking at breaking laws that have been in effect, by consent of the people, for over 200 years. Obama is the kind of brat that you would like to run into in a dark alley after school, when his bigger pals aren´t around to fight for him.

None of them have the slightest clue as to what this economy is REALLY like out here. They ALL live in their own little, well paid, protected world where the things they do to us have no effect on them and, evidently, they don´t even know it. The whole cesspool needs to be pumped out, pressure washed, disinfected, and made right.

MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker is casting himself as a turnaround artist, seeking re-election with a pitch to voters that he revamped the state’s spending and business climate in just four years. For a governor with presidential aspirations, it’s a case he’s likely preparing for a national audience as well — but first he’ll have to get through a tighter-than-expected re-election race against Democrat Mary Burke, a former state secretary of commerce. As if that wasn’t enough, analysts say that his race could also say a lot about the political strength of labor unions, given that they’ve made defeating

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

You can win midterm elections without a positive agenda. You can’t win presidential elections that way. It is therefore vitally important for Republicans to win the Senate in 2014. Here’s why. In midterms, it’s all right to be the party of no. The 2010 election, for example, was a referendum on the liberal overreach of the first two Obama years. Result? A Democratic “shellacking,” said President Obama. The massive stimulus, (the failed) cap-and-trade and Obamacare created a major backlash that cost Obama the House and, with it, the rest of his ideological agenda. It’s been blocked ever since. That’s the

Eleven whistleblowers in the FBI say the bureau is targeting them for termination in retaliation for their revelations about FBI wrongdoing, the top Republican on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary announced Wednesday. The whistleblowers, who have spoken out about various problems and wrongdoing at the law enforcement agency, said they recently have been served with Loss of Effectiveness orders, warning that their performance is suffering and that they could soon be fired. “These whistleblowers never have the opportunity to make their case,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican. “It’s stereotypical treatment of whistleblowers for the executive branch.”

U.S. has only jet to transport

As the Ebola virus spread quickly across parts of Africa in March, U.S. officials confronted a logistical nightmare: a complete lack of infrastructure in affected regions, no evacuation plans and air charter services that were unable or unwilling to fly into the region to transport seriously ill patients. And it turns out there’s only one jet in the world — operated by a small private plane charter company in Georgia — with a special transport tube that allows medical personnel to treat Ebola patients while in flight. The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease and Prevention helped develop the “air transport bio-containment

Despite national guidelines for evaluating potential Ebola cases and worldwide awareness of an epidemic that has killed thousands in West Africa, a man who later tested positive for the disease was released from a Dallas hospital even though he said he had traveled to Texas from Liberia. The man returned two days later and was placed in isolation before he became the first person ever diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. But as a result of this lapse, Thomas Duncan was able to leave the hospital and interact with more people while experiencing symptoms, which is when the virus

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, America’s premier disease fighter, offered the air of confidence in declaring that the first Ebola patient in Dallas was carefully contained. But earlier this year, it sounded less optimistic about the U.S. health system’s ability to fight a pandemic should a major disease outbreak occur.

As expected, Microsoft launched a new version of Windows on Tuesday two years after the troubled release of its last operating system, Windows 8. But instead of introducing the expected name, "Windows 9," Microsoft announced it will jump to "Windows 10." Yes, Microsoft can still count. The reason for the bizarre jump, company executives said, is that there were just so many changes to the system. The name “represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows,” Terry Myerson, the Microsoft executive vice president in charge of the Windows division, said in a company blog post.

A man who flew from Liberia to Dallas this month received a diagnosis of Ebola on Tuesday, becoming the first person to board a passenger jet and unknowingly bring the disease here from West Africa, where it has killed thousands of people in recent months. Experts had said that such an event was increasingly likely the longer the epidemic rages in West Africa. But health officials were quick Tuesday to tamp down any hysteria, emphasizing the ways in which the U.S. medical system is well equipped to halt the spread of the disease. “We’re stopping it in its tracks in

Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

BEIJING — Swelling crowds of pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong on Monday plunged Asia’s normally staid financial hub into a tense standoff with Beijing that strikes directly at China’s expanding political grip in the former British colony. The rapidly escalating protests are aimed at forcing Beijing’s Communist leaders to abandon newly declared powers to weed out any candidates in upcoming Hong Kong elections. Yet many on the streets proclaimed they are fighting for something even bigger: preserving a vision of Hong Kong promised 17 years ago when it reverted to Chinese rule. At the time, Chinese leaders promised a state

U.S. policy leaders, including President Obama, were repeatedly warned for more than a year by the U.S. intelligence community that the Islamic State terror group was gaining significant strength in Syria and was on the verge of seizing territory deep inside Iraq, where the military was struggling to respond. The private assessments, which were confirmed to The Washington Times on Monday, conflict with Mr. Obama’s claim on national television over the weekend that America’s spies had underestimated the rise and capabilities of the Islamic State and had overestimated the Iraqi military’s ability and will to fight the group.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.
