Obama’s legacy of failure
Washington Post, by Marc A. Thiessen

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 7/7/2014 11:06:21 PM

In his 2008 convention speech, Barack Obama declared that as president he would clean up the mess created by “the failed presidency of George W. Bush.” Now many Americans say he has done a worse job in office than the man he replaced. (snip) Right now, he’s looking like another Carter in the making. Obama has presided over a recent string of disasters that make even Carter look competent. From his failure to enforce his own red line in Syria to the release of five senior Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay to the Russian invasion and annexation of Crimea to

Comments:
Although a majority of Americans and even history itself could declare his presidency as a failure, Obama will never own up to it. As a last resort he will even blame Valjar and Reggie. He knows nothing....including shame.

Abraham Lincoln understood.

notice how many stories from the MSM are now concentrating on the failures and mis-steps of OBAMA?

they are trying to get the lofos to dissociate him FROM THE DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS AND GOVERNORSHIPS..

this gives the thes guys a chance to say, "i had NO IDEA that _____ (fill in the blank) would be so destructive to the country.. please don´t take it out on ME!"
BO is inviolate for two more years - IF he can keep these anti-American commies in congress with him..
HE has never been the problem.. it has been his commie HANDLERS and his commie TOADIES who used him to implement THEIR fifty year strategy..
THEY are the ones who have to be destroyed, as i am used to saying, from the local skool bords UP to the white house..
HE is just an ignorant stooge who, because he is black, is their mouthpiece..

What most people don´t understand when they call Obama a failure, is that his one and only goal is to destroy the USA. He is not failing to do just that!

. . . If Obama sticks to his plan to replicate his Iraq withdrawal in Afghanistan, things could get even worse abroad: Obama could leave office with Islamic radicals controlling safe havens in two countries from which they can plan new attacks.

Only two countries? Isn’t aiding and abetting the Islamists’ quest for their worldwide Caliphate the Jihadist-in-Chief’s INTENT?

The Washington Post wouldn’t be trying to cover Obama’s apparent intent, would it, Marc?

Obama is only a failure if the rules are that he is supposed to be an American patriot and President. That was the expectation in the past, but he is a post-American leader of a post-American political party.

I don´t think many at the UN consider him a failure.

I kind of think Barry eclipsed Carter´s incompetence in his first term. Right now all he´s doing is making sure that no future president could ever be considered the MOST incompetent.

It is said that in baseball the catcher´s equipment are the tools of ignorance. In life the mark of ignorance is an Obama sticker on your car.

Obama is a terrible president and has done nothing for the betterment of the USA.
The only thing he has done was done with the destruction of the American way of life.
Is he stupid? Hell no! Is he very smart> Hell no! Is he ignorant? Hell yes?
He is just like liberal, dumb ass communist college professors. They all feel the USA is the worse thing that ever happened to the world and any means available should be used to bring it down.
The only reason he ever got to be president is the far liberal press allowed the Alinskite methods to work.
He is NOT failing. His goal is to destroy America and bring it back as a communist country. I said this 6 years ago and people laughed. Now 6 years later people are starting to believe.
BTW when I first saw Hilderbest I said she liked women , The first time I saw Obama I said the was gay. The first time I saw Kerry, I said he would turn out to be a coward rather than a hero and the first time I saw Edwards I sid he was a dishonest phony.
Was I right or was I right?

When first lady Pat Nixon accompanied her husband to Beijing on his famous 1972 trip, she toured the zoo there and was much taken with the giant pandas that she saw. The species lives in the wild only in China and was rarely seen in captivity outside of that nation. In conversation with Zhou Enlai at a state dinner that evening, she enthused about the pandas. An engaging man, he immediately offered to make a gift of two pandas to the United States. (In exchange, the United States government sent over two musk oxen.)

Vietnam´s taste for cat
leaves pets in peril
Agence France-Presse, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 7/28/2014 1:06:21 AM     Post Reply
The enduring popularity of "little tiger" as a snack to accompany a beer in Vietnam means that cat owners live in constant fear of animal snatchers, despite an official ban. At an unassuming restaurant next to a carwash in central Hanoi, a cat is prepared for hungry clients: drowned, shaved and burned to remove all fur before being cut up and fried with garlic. "A lot of people eat cat meat. It´s a novelty. They want to try it," said the establishment´s manager To Van Dung, 35. Vietnam has forbidden the consumption of cats in an effort to encourage their ownership and keep the capital's rat population under control.

Beijing – Hundreds of police took down a church´s cross in eastern China early Monday amid a crackdown on church buildings in a coastal region where thousands of people are embracing Christianity. Evangelist Qu Linuo, who belongs to another church, said hundreds of police showed up Monday at the Longgang Huai En Church in the city of Wenzhou and used a crane to remove the cross from its steeple. Qu said he and about 200 others had flocked to the church a few hours earlier to protect the church but peacefully made way for the police.

Words mean what they say. That´s the basis for the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Halbig v. Burwell invalidating the Internal Revenue Service regulation approving subsidies for Obamacare consumers in states with federal health insurance exchanges.

When they lost their bet, the administration ignored the Constitution and ordered the spending of monies that Congress never authorized. This was lawless behavior, and reckless as well.

Baghdad — Iraq´s prime minister on Sunday condemned the Islamic State extremist group´s actions targeting Christians in territory it controls, saying they reveal the threat the jihadists pose to the minority community´s "centuries-old heritage." (Snip) These actions stem from the harsh interpretation of Islamic law the group seeks to impose on the territory it controls in Iraq and neighboring Syria. Already in Mosul, the extremist group has banned alcohol and water pipes, and painted over street advertisements showing women´s faces. It has, however, held off on stricter punishments so far. Iraq´s Christian communities date back to the first centuries

When White House press secretary Josh Earnest said this week that President Barack Obama had "substantially improved the tranquillity of the global community," many observers reacted with disbelief. (snip) It is as though the more dangerous the world becomes the more Obama hides in a fantasy world of avoiding the responsibilities of the presidency. He uses the office to surround himself with court jesters who distract him in an enlightened and noble way from the growing failures of his policies and the rapidly expanding threats to the civilized world.

Employers Try to Get Seattle to

National Review Online, by Celina Durgin    Original Article

Seattle’s plan to dramatically increase the minimum wage is going to be unsustainable in the long term and is already costing jobs and raising prices, business owners say. Seattle businessmen lead by Forward Seattle, a non-partisan organization representing independent businesses, collected about 19,500 signatures to put a referendum on the city’s minimum wage ordinance on this November’s ballot. Several of the petitioners have said their businesses cannot withstand the ordinance’s schedule for increasing the minimum hourly wage, which will boost it from $9.25 to $15 in as few as three years for the largest employers. Some petitioners had tried unsuccessfully to

Raju, believed to have been poached from his mother as a baby, was beaten and left bleeding from painful spiked leg shackles by an abusive owner who had the elephant beg for handouts and survive by eating plastic and paper for food.

In a video interview with a UK website, Hillary Clinton contradicts her earlier story about how she came to represent a child rapist. Hillary now claims she had no choice in representing the 41-year-old who raped a 6th grader, a story which is at odds with the one she told an interviewer three decades ago. (snip) Whether or not Hillary was assigned the case, part of the problem is her callous treatment of the victim both during the case and years later during the interview. Hillary reportedly went out of her way to question the victim´s reliability. In fact, the

When Vice President Joe Biden’s son, R. Hunter Biden, joined the board of a private Ukrainian oil and natural gas company this spring, he explained his new job as a legal one, disconnected from any effort to influence the Obama Administration. (snip) But the company, Burisma Holdings, did not disclose at the time the scope of their plans for influencing the U.S. government. Recently released documents show that Biden’s hiring coincided with the launch of a new effort to lobby members of Congress about the role of the company in Ukraine and the country’s quest for energy independence.

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col.

The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.
