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.

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.

Key hearing on Detroit´s historic
bankruptcy begins in US court

Detroit will not recover, and it may not survive as a major city if its debts are not significantly reduced during bankruptcy, a city attorney told a federal judge at the start of a critical phase of the case on Tuesday. As Detroit´s state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr looked on in the courtroom, Bruce Bennett, an attorney for the city, sought to convince Judge Steven Rhodes that Detroit´s 1,034-page plan to adjust $18 billion of debt would save the city. "There is no doubt, your honor, that progress has been made, but Detroit is still a city in distress," said

As NATO leaders gathered in Wales for a summit meeting, Mr. Putin’s remarks and the increasing presence of Russian military units in Ukraine posed a stark new challenge to the alliance about how to respond to Moscow’s apparent willingness to exert military force to achieve its foreign policy goals.

Steven Sotloff was the grandson of two Holocaust survivors who was fully aware of the risks of reporting from Middle East - and made it his career anyway. Friends say he spoke fluent Arabic and had a showed a deep love for the Islamic world before he was captured by ISIS militants in Syria in 2013. He was executed by them on Tuesday. Sotloff, 31, grew up Miami with his mother Shirley - whose parents were both Holocaust survivors - and father Art before attending the Kimball Union Academy boarding school in New Hampshire from which he graduated in 2002.
