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.

The owners of TBonz Steakhouse in Augusta, Georgia, decided to be proactive when Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law one of the most comprehensive pro-gun bills in the country this April, which allowed firearms into the state’s bars and restaurants. The eatery hung up a “No Guns” sign on its front door. Its customer backlash was so harsh and quick that the steakhouse immediately took down the sign and then posted a mea culpa on its Facebook page. “The sign that was put up regarding firearms has been removed,” TBonz said in its Facebook posting this May. “It was

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was clinging to power Monday as protesters stepped up their assault on government buildings while the capital was gripped with fear and confusion about whether the country’s powerful military will step in to defuse the tension. As the demonstrations calling for the prime minister’s resignation enter their third week, Sharif is trying to navigate Pakistan’s worst political crisis in more than a decade. With the violence increasing, what started as a routine demonstration has morphed into concerns that the government of a nuclear-armed country could collapse.

President Obama found himself under fire Sunday for his cautious approach to beating back the Islamic State’s march through Iraq and Syria and stamping out other diplomatic fires around the globe, with a top House Republican suggesting his foreign policy was in free fall and that Western allies no longer view the U.S. as a leader in the fight against bad actors. Rep.

On August 29, a UN panel on racism urged the United States to "review" its stand your ground-styled self-defense laws and demanded it put a halt to the excessive use of force by police. The U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) claimed that racial minorities are victims of oppression by authorities and apparently targeted by whites with the self-defense laws. "Racial and ethnic discrimination remains a serious and persistent problem in all areas of life from de facto school segregation, access to health care and housing," Algerian Noureddine Amir, CERD committee vice chairman, said in a press

Judicial Watch released a statement that said Islamic terrorist groups who have infiltrated the city of Ciudad Juarez aim to use car bombs to attack American interests. “High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,” the statement read. “Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S acknowledgment that “we don’t have a strategy yet” in Syria understandably attracted the most attention after his perplexing meeting with reporters Thursday. But his restatement of the obvious was not the most dismaying aspect of his remarks. The president’s goal, to the extent he had one, seemed to be to tamp down all the assessments of gathering dangers that his own team had been issuing over the previous days. This argument with his own administration is alarming on three levels. The first has to do with simple competence. One can only imagine the whiplash that foreign leaders must

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”

Amid conflicting congressional demands, impatient Arab allies, and public concern that he will do too much or too little, President Obama made bluntly clear Thursday why he has not yet implemented a comprehensive U.S. response to the Islamist insurgency that is rapidly spreading across the Middle East. “We don’t have a strategy yet,” Obama said, in response to questions about when he is prepared to begin military action in Syria, and, if not, why not? Rarely has a president spoken so plainly. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” he said. The suggestion that “we’re about to

Last month, AFP reported that the Islamic State had established a marriage bureau to help jihadists find brides. It was a troubling sign that ISIL and its self-proclaimed caliphate believed it would be around for a while. Since then, the group has been digging in: In the Syrian city of Raqqah on the banks of the Euphrates River, Islamic State militants are busy building a capital fit for their followers. Human rights observers say they have stoned women to death for adultery, while residents report that religious textbooks have been imported for schools and the market flooded with black cloaks

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding. The study, which

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
