The peevish president
Chicago Tribune, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/3/2014 11:58:10 AM

"So sue me." —President Barack Obama on Tuesday, complaining about Republican leaders ~We´re not sure who would be spurred into action by the hectoring lectures this week from the president of the United States along the lines of, "I´m right, you should know better." Maybe his kids. Certainly not the Republican members of Congress. Americans who aren´t fierce Republican or Democratic partisans probably rolled their eyes at this display — if they haven´t completely tuned out Washington´s bimodal distrust and contempt. Problem is, right now, that mutual distrust and contempt hampers a national response to an urgent humanitarian crisis involving

Too late Chicago Tribune. You helped to get a feckless adolescent elected and you should bear the burden. How about accepting about 10,000 illegals into the city of Chicago. Maybe the embedded narcos could help fight the local gang violence. The rest let´s transport to California, New York City, and Massachusetts. Locate them to all of the Blue (really the red states). Funny thing about liberals. They are all about helping the oppressed until they are asked to do the helping.

It´s not a humanitarian crisis. It´s an illegal invasion.

The Chicago Tribune did the most to get a little-known state Senator Obama into the Senate office by destroying the strong GOP candidate´s chances by releasing his private divorce records. The Chicago Tribune also referred to Obama as Kenyan born though they seem to have no recollection of that. Thanks a lot, Tribune.

Peevish? How about inept, immature, and completely lacking in leadership skills?

There´s a reason this guy had no accomplishments to his name before he was dubbed "the Messiah."

Good grief. Our president is a cosseted adolescent who has never designed, built, implemented, run, operated, streamlined, or improved ANYTHING in his life.

But liberals fawned over his "world class temperament."

What a farce. Those of us who think rationally saw this conman for the fraud that he is on day one.

FTA: The president warned last week that putting children in the hands of smugglers, or allowing them to travel alone, is terribly dangerous.

Oh puhleeze, spare me from those blatant lies of Obama. He is the one who created and caused this. I´m sure this newspaper didn´t bother to research the fact that the regime advertised for jobs in January the need for 65,000 escorts for illegals. All this blather that this is: "the moment in the Obama presidency when it is possible to put political differences aside" is hollow and meaningless. This is what Obama wants and he is achieving it. For them to pretend that an immigration bill will solve this is outrageous, delusional and ridiculous.

It never ceases to amaze me how low this idiot can go.

It is not merely "do not let a crisis go to waste" or whatever BO or Holder said...now the motto is "create a crisis when there is none" so we can "fix it".

He is like the fireman who starts a fire in order to put it out and become a hero.

This carefully crafted INVASION of the poorest of poor, smugglers, drug agents, criminals and terrorists is going to create havoc for the communities that are forced to accept.

Learning of the swell of public outcry and protest blocking the transports, I hope is just the begining of a huge revolt against this president, his policies and administration.

Mayors in every city should start emergency legislation banning any use of public property, facility and funds for the harboring of illegal aliens. And if is unconstitutional, fine. It will be locked up in court for 5+ years.

Biggest reform needed: Enorce the immigration laws already on the books.

"Immigration reform" always means amnesty. We tried that under Pres. Reagan. At the time, I said it wouldn´t work, and it hasn´t.

I´m with Laura Ingrahm: fences, National Guard , deportation by the thousands.

As anyone sentient ought to realize by now, for 17 years, Liar´s own publicity package reflected his assertion that he was Kenyan-born. Shame on those who claim that Liar is Kenyan-born

We KNOW that president Frank Marshall Davis, Jr. (no relation to Sammy!) was NOT born in Kenya. Liar said he was born in Kenya. Isn´t this reason enough to be convinced that Liar was not?

Interesting how a guy described as "Pops" looks an awful, awful lot like the Honolulu kid he mentored. Check the photos--it´s not a close call--that show that one of Stanley Ann´s numerous communist paramours was a dead ringer for the guy who wrote of "Pops" in his "autobiography."

Perhaps this explains the forged birth cert...

Perhaps this explains, President FM Davis Jr.´s (no relation to Sammy!) ability to address life-and-death issues by lying through the air with the greatest of ease about everything and anything...

Perhaps a guy who lies about who his real father is, is capable of lying about domestic and international matters that would be causing suffering/dead/displaced humans numbering in the hundreds of millions...

Does NOBODY want to win a Pulitzer?

We are subscribers, but have long been disgusted with the WSJournal view of illegal immigration: come one come all. What they may mean, but are too politically correct to say, is that we would like to offer eventual citizenship to those who have come here to study and have graduated, and have a lot to offer, or, like Canada, some sort of criteria as to what a proposed citizen can bring to the table right off, be it $ or entrepreneurship. What we, unfortunately, DON´T need is a huge number of low skilled, poorly educated (no matter how decent) applicants who will compete with our low skilled, poorly educated, who are desperate for jobs as we speak. And we need a tight border!!!!!!! so that those who do go to the back of the line stay there with all those who play by the rules!

Why should the Republicans in Congress have to accept a massive liberal Democrat designed amnesty for up to 20 million illegal aliens, who then would gain a right to bring unlimited numbers of their foreign relatives here, with all being put on a special path to citizenship run by the very liberal ethnic and immigration advocacy groups at US Government expense? Because Obama, the liberal Democrats, and the liberal media order them to? But that is not he way the legislative process in Congress works.

Besides such an amnesty would not stop the unlawful flow of huge numbers of poor and uneducated illegal aliens sneaking into the USA, it would legalize such a flow on into the future, and after a couple of years those new aliens would also be welcomed aboard the liberal Democrat path to citizenship. This is all about manufacturing tens of millions of new foreign born socialist oriented Democrat voters in the years ahead, and the Republicans would have to be political morons to go along with that liberal Democrat long-term plan.

In none of these pathetic, increasingly common Awakening To Obama editorials do the writers ever acknowledge the significance of the 2010 Congressional elections. That election was the American people slamming on the brakes of the runaway freight train. obama misled them and the people did not want to continue down his leftist side track. Although not always effective, the Congressional brakes have been on ever since, and rightfully so. And for good reason, there is very little common ground between the mandated 2010-14 Congress´ and the arrogant little king. And there is no equivalence between the stubbornness of the little king and the Congress sent to stop him.

The reason nobody wants immigration reform is that Obama writes regulations without regard for what the law says. He just picks out keywords he´s interested in and writes stuff. It wouldn´t be safe to give him a new law to play with. Um, if the Tribune? had told him not to do that? he might possibly have learned to comport himself as a trustworthy federal official. But ya didn´t and he hasn´t. We´re being prudent, Trib, you´re the ones with blinkers on.

Take the word of the conservative and pro-immigration Wall Street Journal Editorial Board, which wrote Wednesday that "a majority of GOP members wanted an immigration reform to pass as long as they didn´t have to vote for it."

Business leaders who grew more vocal this year about the need for immigration reform have also grown more frustrated with the Republicans, who scurried to hide in dark corners when former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his primary election in Virginia last month, arguably because he favored reform.

Didn´t the left go into apoplexy when small businesses thought it was wrong for them to be forced to pay for those 4 contraceptive methods that terminated fertilized eggs? And you have just admitted that conservatives don´t want immigration reform but their establishment representatives are willing to vote for it if they do it in stealth.

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

The King fire in Northern California grew this weekend, destroying at least 10 homes, as officials worried that changing weather conditions could fuel the massive blaze even more. National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Clapp said meteorologists were watching closely to see whether shifting weather patterns early this week would generate winds similar to those present last week when the fire spread quickly. The blaze in Eldorado National Forest has grown to encroach on the Tahoe National Forest, officials said. It grew to 82,018 acres and was 10% contained as of Sunday morning, and more than 5,200 firefighters are battling the

National press and talking heads of the Republican persuasion had a field day over the weekend after photos surfaced of a Democratic senator assisting a late-20s-something with a keg stand at a Louisiana State University tailgate party. The pictures show Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana, manning the spigot helm as an LSU fan is hoisted upside down above a beer keg ahead of LSU´s game Saturday against Mississippi State. A former Tiger herself, Landrieu reportedly made her rounds about her alma mater´s campus - including a visit to her old stomping grounds at the Delta Gamma sorority - before eventually finding

On his show Reliable Sources this morning, CNN host Brian Stelter defended Sarah Palin against media coverage of her family’s alleged “brawl” at a snowmobile party earlier this month. “Doesn’t Sarah Palin deserve the benefit of the doubt?” Stelter asked. He began the segment by airing a clip from Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough seemed to take a jab at what Stelter called Scarborough’s own network’s “saturation” of coverage over Gov. Chris Christie‘s “Bridgegate” scandal — or lack of. Stelter then took aim at the New York Daily News‘s coverage of the story, saying the newspaper did not

The U.S. is "gravely concerned" about the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons´s findings last week of systematic and repeated chlorine attacks in northern Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry said in a written statement Sunday. "The Assad regime must know that it will be held to account for such use in the international community," Kerry said, noting that the report raises "especially troubling concerns that continued chemical attacks on the Syrian people by the regime could occur." The OPCW released its report on Wednesday. While it does not assign responsibility, Kerry pointed to witness accounts of helicopters

A significant benefit of the Affordable Care Act is the opportunity to receive money-saving tax credits up front to cut the overall cost of health insurance, but now hundreds of thousands of consumers could owe back some of that money next April. Those affected took advance payments of the premium tax credit for health insurance. Some married couples could owe $600 or $1,500 or $2,500 or even more. It might feel like a raw deal for some who are already suffocating under the escalating costs of health insurance. "Health insurance is confusing enough, and now they´re adding the complexities of

On Meet the Press Sunday morn, host Chuck Todd found a new way to say the exact same thing political pundits have been saying daily for the past year: the 2014 midterms structurally favor Republicans thanks to the Senate seats at play. Or in Todd’s new red-state-blue-stateish formulation, it’s Starbucks Nation vs. Chick-Fil-A country. The chain-based heuristic refers to urban areas that vote Democratic versus ex-urban and rural areas that vote Republican. In 2012 the battleground states favored urban, Starbucks-pocked areas, hence Obama’s win; in the upcoming election, the toss-up states are more rural,

"Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face."

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”
