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.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) described his anti-poverty plan to MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, calling for a targeted approach to government aid, which would implement local management to tailor aid to individual needs. “Each person has a different, unique circumstance and need, yet the federal government treats it all the same,” said Ryan. “So the vision here is, let’s customize aid to the person’s need to focus on getting them from where they are to where they want to be, which is a good job and a good career.” Ryan’s plan would encourage each state to develop its

President Barack Obama is summoning Central American leaders to the White House to discuss the influx of young immigrants from their countries to the U.S., hoping to show presidential action even as Congress remains deeply split over proposals to stem the crisis on the border. The meeting comes as the administration is considering creating a pilot program giving refugee status to young people from Honduras, White House officials said Thursday. The plan would involve screening youths in their home country to determine whether they qualify for refugee status. The program would be limited and would start in Honduras but could

SALEM – Oregon is taking steps to ban smoking on all 362 miles of ¬Pacific coast beaches. The move this week by the state Parks and Recreation Department follows an earlier ban on smoking at most other state park properties. It’s partly a response to concerns that the earlier smoking ban, enacted in February, will push more smokers onto the coastline, said Chris Havel, an agency spokesman. The ban would reduce litter on beaches and ensure consistent rules throughout the state parks system, too, he said. The agency is taking public comment on the proposal through Aug. 29 and will

First Lady Michelle Obama returned to her hometown Thursday and decried the effects of gun violence on Chicago’s youth as she told a group of campaign donors to “write the biggest, fattest check that you can possibly write” to help Democrats make a better future for children. Speaking to an estimated 150 people in the fifth-floor ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria Chicago in the Gold Coast at a Democratic National Committee event, the First Lady repeatedly urged donors to “dig deep.” She said electing Democrats in the November mid-term elections would help the nation overcome what she called Republican “obstruction”

On Thursday, Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), who have arguably been the two most influential conservatives in stopping amnesty legislation, urged their colleagues to put more pressure on President Barack Obama, so he does not unilaterally grant temporary amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants. In a colloquy with Cruz on the Senate floor, Sessions said Obama´s potential executive actions represent an "exceedingly grave threat that go[es] beyond anything we´ve ever seen in this country" and "threatens the very constitutional framework of our republic and the very ability of this nation to even have borders."

CNN/ORC Poll: Majority say no

Washington– There’s not a lot of public appetite for a Republican push to sue President Barack Obama, or for calls by some conservatives to impeach him, according to a new national survey. A CNN/ORC International poll released Friday morning also indicates that a small majority of Americans do not believe that Obama has gone too far in expanding the powers of the presidency. Earlier this month, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the GOP´s 2008 vice presidential nominee, called for Obama´s impeachment, becoming the latest voice on the right to make the suggestion.

David Gregory is toast, probably. Both Emily Smith and Lloyd Grove report that the "Meet The Press" host will likely be pushed out following the November midterms. It that true? It almost doesn´t matter. It feels right. No one at NBC News is contesting it, not even the network spokesperson, who only cautioned that the "false rumors" be taken "with a grain of salt." The cat is out of the bag, and at a certain point talk of Gregory´s impending removal gains so much steam that it becomes a reality. Unless, of course, the ratings go up. But the ratings

But after the interview was aired, CNBC panelists excoriated the president as "duplicitous" and "disingenuous" for pretending like he has no share in the blame for a lack of movement on tax reform during his tenure in office and for offering an inaccurate, misleading description of what exactly happens to

DENVER- A law expanding background check requirements on Colorado gun sales has been in effect for about a year, and an Associated Press analysis of state data compiled during that span shows the projected impact was vastly overstated in a key budget report. The discovery has prompted a prominent Democratic lawmaker to question whether the Legislature misallocated millions of taxpayer dollars based on the flawed estimate, which has provided an opportunity for Republicans to resume attacks over regulation that already has come at great political cost to Colorado liberals. Democrats pushed the proposal into law last year as part of

Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal. If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds.

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady.

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.
