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.

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.

Acting Veteran Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson assured Congress last week that the VA is working hard to replace its “antiquated” scheduling system, but the Obama administration first received clear notice more than five years ago about the need for an overhaul to reduce patient wait times. “Excessive wait times are addressed by moving to a resource-based management system,” Veterans Affairs technology officials told the Obama-Biden transition team in a briefing report that included mention of VA’s “schedule replacement” project. The Washington Times obtained the report through the Freedom of Information Act. More than five years later, VA officials are hard

Israeli forces on Sunday escalated their ground operations in Gaza City, leading to the deadliest day in the nearly two-week conflict between Israel and Hamas-backed forces amid calls by top U.S. and Israeli officials for a cease-fire. The Israeli military reported that 13 soldiers were killed early Sunday, and Palestinian authorities reported that at least 65 Palestinians were killed as air and tank fire pummeled the city for hours. More than 420 Palestinians, as well as at least 20 Israelis, have been killed since fighting began July 8. Secretary of State John F. Kerry said Hamas, which wants Israel and

The 298 passengers and crew on board the doomed flight MH17 would have been oblivious to what was happening as the missile struck the plane, according to a defence analyst. The Buk SA-11 missile would have hit the plane at various points, igniting the fuel and taking out the engines and wings in less than a second. The passengers on board would have been unconscious almost instantly. Explaining in graphic detail exactly what would have happened as the missile hit the plane, Justin Bronk, a researcher analyst at the Royal United Services Institute, told MailOnline: "An SA-11 missile is designed to

KIEV, Ukraine — The quest for clues in the downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet faced major obstacles Friday as the rebel militias that Ukraine blames for the disaster limited access to the mammoth crash site strewn with airplane parts and bodies. Ukrainian officials were trying to negotiate safe passage for teams of investigators and international observers deep in territory held by the pro-Russian separatists in the east of the country. The fate of the airplane’s black-box data recorders, which could give crucial information about the plane’s final moments, was unclear, with neither side acknowledging possession. And rebels argued among

Moral clarity in Gaza

Israel accepts an Egyptian-proposed Gaza cease-fire; Hamas keeps firing. Hamas deliberately aims rockets at civilians; Israel painstakingly tries to avoid them, actually telephoning civilians in the area and dropping warning charges, so-called roof knocking. “Here’s the difference between us,” explains the Israeli prime minister. “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.” Rarely does international politics present a moment of such moral clarity. Yet we routinely hear this Israel-Gaza fighting described as a morally equivalent “cycle of violence.” This is absurd. What possible interest can Israel have in cross-border fighting? Everyone

MOSCOW — A suspected Russian-made surface-to-air missile downed a Malaysia Airlines jet in a separatist-controlled corner of eastern Ukraine on Thursday, prompting the Ukrainian government to denounce an “act of terror” that killed all 298 people on board. U.S. intelligence officials confirmed, but could not identify the origins of, the missile strike that led to the deadliest downing of a civilian passenger plane in recent decades. One Ukrainian government official, however, said the Boeing 777 traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur appeared to have been hit by an advanced Russian-made missile system that recently came into the hands of the

Obama has a lot of yucky vegetables on his big boy plate, these days. But being president, he doesn´t have to eat them. He can skip all the gross stuff and go right for the ice cream.

DENTON, Texas — The council governing a North Texas city that sits atop a large natural gas reserve rejected a bid early Wednesday that would have made it the first city in the state to ban further permitting of hydraulic fracturing in the community. Denton City Council members voted down the petition 5-2 after eight hours of public testimony, sending the proposal to a public ballot in November. Fracking involves blasting a mix of water, sand and chemicals deep into underground rock formations to release trapped oil and gas. While the method has long stirred concerns about its effects on

The Environmental Protection Agency bowed to fierce criticism Wednesday and announced that it had hit the breaks on a fast-tracked plan to collect fines by garnishing paychecks of accused polluters. The agency, which has come under withering attacks from Republican lawmakers for attempting a “power grab,” said it still intended to pursue the new authority to garnish wages without a court order. But now it will follow a more typical and longer review process. Opponents of the wage-garnish rule applauded EPA’s decision. “It’s about time this abuse-prone agency listened to Congress and backtrack on a rule that was clearly an

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

As a TV and movie star for nearly six decades, the Oklahoma kid made the hard art of acting seem like a game — as deft and persuasive as a gambler´s con He was a man’s man who relied on his wits instead of his fists; a ladies’ man who wouldn’t steal a fella’s girl. Famous for his Maverick Western series in the 1950s and The Rockford Files in the ’70s, and in movies like The Great Escape and Grand Prix in between, James Garner played amiable, independent characters for more than a half-century, and never lost his comforting, enduring appeal.

Miami - A jury in northwest Florida awarded a staggering $23 billion judgment late Friday against the country’s second-largest tobacco company for causing the death of a chain smoker who died of lung cancer at the age of 36. Michael Johnson Sr. died in 1996 after smoking for more than 20 years. In 2006, his widow, Cynthia Robinson, of Pensacola, sued the R. J. Reynolds Company, the maker of the Kool brand cigarettes her husband had smoked, arguing that the company had deliberately concealed the health hazards its product caused. The four-week trial ended Wednesday. The jury deliberated for 18 hours over two days,

Denver - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged the grassroots Saturday to support her call for the impeachment of President Obama, imploring conservatives to push the idea with Congress. “There’s only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors, and it’s impeachment,” said Ms. Palin. “It’s the I word. You don’t need some fancy law degree hanging on your wall there to know laws are not being enforced today. Illegal immigrants all over the world also know that.” The former Republican vice-presidential candidate spoke to a crowd here at the Western Conservative Summit, sponsored by the

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

A female general who has never piloted a military aircraft has been nominated by US President Barack Obama to head the Air Force in the Pacific. Air Force Lt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson was nominated by the president for a fourth star and to be commanding general of the military branch’s Pacific operations. If confirmed, she will be the first four-star female commander of combat forces, the Pentagon announced. But many wonder if her lack of experience in the air puts US forces on a highway to the danger zone. ‘You make operational decisions that require the understanding of what you
