This means Warren: Obama
backs challenger to Hillary

New York Post, by Edward Klein

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/6/2014 4:55:33 AM

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008. Thanks to her outspoken stand against big banks

Killary will try to stab Obama without seeming to be disloyal. She really can´t distance herself too much from the administration that she was part of. Bill will be her hatchet guy.

Let´s see if we can understand this - so if the Clintons and the Obamas, who all love each other very much because Democrats are such loving people, had a foursome it would be a tranny, two gays and one straight white male? Not that there´s anything wrong with that. Someone should really make a reality-TV series of just the four of them together in one room. Imagine.

#7 is right on she would be another affirmative action President and if elected finish destroying the country with her leftist drivel and nonsense. A foreign black student and then a fake Indian who both rigged the University/College system with their minority status to get special funding, treatment and accolades without having to do anything or any work.

This just makes the economic moron and mother of the Occupy Wall St. crime wave even more beatable now that she can also be tied to directly to 0bama´s abject failures.
ANY democrat is easily beatable if the Repub. challenger just has the guts to keep them on defense and beat them over the head with a daily barrage of what that party has become and what Barry has done to this country.

Obama Vs the Clintons would be the War of the Poses. Obama would do his best imitation of the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, with his head turned up in self worship. Hillary would constantly change hairstyles and frumpy pant suits to inspire her followers to buy her dismal book and even more dismal claim of poverty.

War of the Poses winner could be the leader of the Faux tribe, Princess I Was An Indian Until I Got Tenure, Elizabeth Warpaint. Warpaint would strike pose of a more stylist lesbian than Old Pantsuit, thereby appealing to millions of Dem voters who are eager to have a stylist radical professor replace their current stylist radical lecturer as president, To Dems, style always trumps substance.

Even saw her sitting close to him in a picture last week eating at a diner. We have to pay her to keep him in line for not only the Communist Party but also Michelle.

BALONEY! I don´t buy that Obama worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies, because they are of like minds! They want the same things.

However, I do believe he´d rather have that idiot Warren replace him because he thinks they (Obama, Jarret et al) can control her.

I also think this sets HRC up as a ´victim´ of sorts ... the underdog.

#19, according to Klein´s book, Jarrett kept an overnight bag in her WH office and frequently spent the night in the Lincoln bedroom. But, the overnights became so frequent, she was given (commandeered?) a bedroom in the family quarters which she has completely redecorated to suit her own taste. I suggest everyone read that book, even if you only believe half of what it says.

I must be out of the loop. I have no idea what Elizabeth Warren is except a left-wing nut who lied about her ancestors. How could she be elected when most of the country does not live in Washington or on the east coast and may have only heard her name. We don´t get any news about her or her positions here in fly-over country and the short clips I´ve seen on TV show an old lady with granny glasses who should be home baking cookies. What a wonderful world we live in. Anyone, no matter how dumb, can be president.

What difference, at the point, does it make? The Democrats WIN in 2016. Look at what they´re doing with immigration. Do you really believe the 2016 election will be conducted any more lawfully? But if they want to put a sheen of legitimacy over it, all they need is Texas, which is where enough of the illegals are heading (and their sisters and their cousins and their aunts, to follow) to make the results nice and purty.

So long as Bill Clinton walks the earth, the Clintons will destroy Warren. The Clintons will call in every chit.

Obama won because the press decided to back him. No so sure that this will happen again. No democrat will win in 2016, (outside of Berkley, San Francisco and Boston) by running on the Obama record. Come 2016, Obama will be as toxic to democrats as Bush was to Republicans in 2008.

When you are dealing with an administration whose officials look you in the eye and tell you the Muslim Brotherhood is a “largely secular” organization, it’s tempting to laugh off the idiocy spouted by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry about how the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. We should resist the temptation, though, because there is a dangerous purpose behind the laughable assertion. Obviously, Bing West and Daniel Pipes are correct that the terrorist group is entirely Islamic. As I’ve been arguing here more times and for more years than I care to remember, what

In bad midterm-election years, members of a president´s party often find the political climate challenging. In some ways, it is like a swimmer encountering riptides or facing strong undertows. The degree of the danger varies from location to location, and in many cases, weak swimmers struggle in this environment; occasionally, even an Olympic-level swimmer perishes. In 2010—President Obama´s first midterm election—Democratic congressional candidates struggled mightily. The party suffered a net loss of six Senate seats and 63 seats in the House. That was the worst loss for either party in any election since 1948, and the largest loss in a

At the supermarket near his home in central Virginia, Tom Burford likes to loiter by the display of Red Delicious. He waits until he spots a store manager. Then he picks up one of the glossy apples and, with a flourish, scrapes his fingernail into the wax: T-O-M. “We can’t sell that now,” the manager protests. To which Burford replies, in his soft Piedmont drawl: “That’s my point.” Burford, who is 79 years old, is disinclined to apple destruction. His ancestors scattered apple seeds in the Blue Ridge foothills as far back as 1713, and he grew up with more than 100 types

Black men. Fellas. Brothers. Stop complaining about Ray Rice’s (much deserved and yet woefully insufficient) punishment. Right now. When we are beaten, slain and otherwise persecuted, our sisters, our mothers, and our women stand for us with nearly unilateral, unwavering support. They march for us. They cry out our names and demand justice. They support us in our moments of quiet fear when we shed the bitter tears of self-doubt and fatigue. Why aren’t we doing the same? Stephen A.

With all of the other news ricocheting around the media and social networks, this may seem like a sleeper of a story, but it’s a bigger deal than one might think — literally as well as figuratively. Last night, House Republicans unveiled their proposed continuing resolution that will fund government well past the midterm elections, and it won’t make conservatives like Rep. Jeb Hensarling too happy. The proposal calls for a simple extension of current funding, plus some extra cash to deal with the Ebola outbreak in Africa and more flexibility on the use of cash for border security. Otherwise,

In the latest round of polls, President Obama´s approval ratings are lowest on the two issues that once were strengths—foreign policy and immigration. In this week´s ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 31 percent of Americans approved of his handling of immigration, an issue that he recently hoped to wield as a political weapon against the Republican Party. And the same survey showed his approval on international affairs at just 38 percent—the lowest point of his presidency and an 8-point drop from late July—even as he catered to the creeping isolationist sentiment in the country. To the White House, these numbers must

Martha Coakley’s Small Margin of

Martha Coakley may have won the Massachusetts’ Democratic governor primary, but her slim six-point margin of victory isn’t doing much to assuage Democrats worried about another 2010. Coakley took 42 percent of the vote to Steve Grossman’s 36 percent and Don Berwick’s 21 percent on Tuesday’s election. Coakley’s six-point margin is a rather uncomfortable primary win, particularly given that Coakley had a 20-point lead in The Boston Globe poll as recently as two weeks ago. The margin is bringing up memories of her failed 2010 Senate race, when Coakley lost to Scott Brown in a race to replace the longtime seat of

Democratic candidate for Wisconsin governor Mary Burke took a two-year break from her career for a “snowboarding sabbatical” and a decade later expressed doubts that she ever wanted to have a full-time job again. Burke’s career has come under scrutiny after it was revealed that her résumé includes a two-year gap between positions at Trek Bicycle Corporation, which was founded by her father. After working in Europe for Trek overseeing operations in multiple countries, Burke decided she “needed some time off,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal.

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat. The new Fox News poll out today has more

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion. "No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of [the Islamic State´s] victims

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
