‘The bear is loose’: Is Obama
breaking free or running away?

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/10/2014 10:26:45 PM

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

Given what has been seen of the coward. It is believed he is running as fast as his skinny black legs can carry him, slowed only by all the poop he has on his tricycle wheels.

Transplantation? Is it Barry Soetoro or is it Barry Durham or is it really the ridiculous Barack Hussein Obama? Whatever, the man is stupid. As in dumb as a stone. I am very sure his IQ is maybe 80-90. So that begs the question. Who is running the show? I suspect there are 3,4 or maybe 5 people in "charge". And that means no one is in charge and this is what we get.

If he wants his freedom so badly,I have a suggestion:
He can resign now rather than later. But, I am sure Michelle won´t let him; they have a few more million dollar vacations to go on starting with the one in August.

He looks like a complete fool - giving himself silly nicknames and running around the country playing games. Then he has another staged photo-op just hours after decrying the practice.

There are four varieties of the creature we call "Democrat". They are:

The Foolish Fool
The Foolish Knave
The Knavish Fool
The Knavish Knave

Despite his all efforts to appear to be in the first three, Lightbringer´s behavior places him squarely in the fourth category.

This hilarious nugget from one of his paid liar/apologists, Alteredman: “In a world where it’s not yet clear what’s really important, and there’s no real consensus on what’s really important,” he said, “it’s hard for the president to calibrate exactly where to engage.” Yeah, national security, national sovereignty, foreign policy,the economy, citizen health and safety....yeah, there´s no consensus these are important.

I live on a small farm so we occasionally see a mouse in our home, which is then dispatched by our cats. Zippy reminds me of the mouse, scurrying anywhere and everywhere desperately trying to get away from the cat. The cat in this case is a combination of Mooch, his job and his long list of disasters.

Obama has been forced, unwillingly, to spend an inordinate concentrated amount of time with the hoi polloi (´ordinary Americans´ to use Bill Clinton and other self-regarding elitists´ phrase).

Unfortunately for him and his handlers, the people have seen more of him in a few days than they have for the previous few months combined.

His behavior, as well as his decision-making, is not just odd - it´s bizarre. And there is a quickly-growing school of thought that this president is on heavy psychotropic drugs. The constant, inappropriate smiling and nervous laughter are signs of potent doses of antidepressants which, whatever their medicinal properties, also make the user high.

Simply put, we have a madman in charge.

"Breaking free" and "running away" make sense, but I prefer the terms escape and avoidance. Mr. Obama appears to "solve problems" by avoiding them (voting "present" in Illinois, for example) or by escaping to neighborhood settings, where he shines and feels quite comfortable.

He would have made a great community leader had he remained in his element. Not so at the national and international level.

What is a common tactic of spouses when a marriage is unraveling? Staying gone, out of town for long periods time, frequently.

If that stupid loser does not know what the important issues are in the world, someone should sit him down and try to explain.

It appears he´s coming unglued. His brain is thumping like a toad. Perhaps he has a kind of Tinnitus, that worsens when he is DC.

Maybe any medical records, MRI´s, etc of him will be as highly sought after in the future for analysis, as were pieces of Hitler´s skull. He is one bizarre chap.

#2 and #6, could you have meant "Transformation?" I believe your post was trying to show how many times Barack/Barry has transformed his name throughout the years. He is one confused little fella.

I believe that his mother´s maiden name was Dunham not Durham. I have to admit, though, Barry is more like the movie minor-league baseball team Durham Bulls in Bull Durham than like a major league President.

Even though it´s two different sports, Barack can´t hold a candle to Ronald Reagan who portrayed the great Knute Rockne very convincingly.

The following statement is other-worldly:

Senior White House officials say they cannot tear up the president’s schedule every time a domestic or international crisis erupts,...

So the President´s photo op schedule takes precedence over domestic and international crises? Is that his priority? What does that say about his concern for Americans and American interests?

Never did a POTUS have such a skewed view of what it means to be an American, let alone an American President. Everything revolves around what he finds most appealing, least labor-intensive, and softer strokes for his ego.

If a domestic crisis such as our illegal border immigration situation, complete with the probable spread of diseases, isn´t worthy of a trip to personally scope it out, what is? A beer and tea photo op at a friendly local eatery?

If the crisis in Israel and Gaza isn´t worth more than the puerile "We urge caution" pap, what does POTUS actually focus on?

He seems to have a visceral aversion to anything that would, as Boehner noted, cause him to make hard decisions.
He is also averse to appearances where he could face tough questions that were not screened in advance.
He is averse to work and desperately tries to get the media to portray his goofing off as work by saying such things as "he´s been briefed" or some such crap. He hasn´t attended his daily briefings because they require thought and decisions.

The man isn´t a "bear" at all. He is a craven, slithering malingerer, afraid of anything that could shatter his glass ego.

Isn´t it about time people who would ordinarily make honorable decisions in their personal lives stop protecting this troll?

"I can tell you with great optimism that I´m not going to lose this election," she told a mostly friendly crowd at the Texas Tribune Festival, a political symposium underway at the University of Texas campus.

AUSTIN — Twenty years ago this November, Texas elected George P. Bush’s uncle as governor. That election cemented Republicans in power in the Lone Star State after a steady period of ascendance. Democrats haven’t won a statewide elective office since and their candidates for governor (state Sen. Wendy Davis) and lieutenant governor (state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte) are currently seen here in Texas as underdogs this fall. In the two decades since George W. Bush became governor, the Republican Party here has turned several shades redder. Texas might qualify now as the epicenter of the conservative movement across the

WASHINGTON — A man jumped over the fence of the White House on Friday and made it through the front door before officers managed to apprehend him, just minutes after President Barack Obama had departed, the Secret Service said. The intruder sprinted toward the White House after leaping over the fence and ignored commands from officers to stop, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. He was ultimately apprehended just inside the North Portico doors, the grand, columned entrance that looks out over Pennsylvania Ave. Donovan said the man appeared to be unarmed to officers who spotted him jumping the fence,

During the course of the debate, the issue of education came up. After hearing what Abbott had to say, a defensive Davis spoke when she was not supposed to and even interrupted a moderator multiple times--despite being told that it was not her turn to speak.

It should come as no surprise when movies dovetail with the wider social conversation. But this week, the collision is occurring with particularly crystallizing force. To wit: The arrival of a Liam Neeson movie isn’t exactly news, although his new one, “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” is notable on several counts. For one thing, it marks the return of Neeson to the kind of substantive, mature roles his fans have craved while he’s been making science-fiction fantasies and franchise installments. As New York detective Matt Scudder, Neeson settles easily into a role that calls for equal parts muscular brawn and

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

The United States has made the same mistake in evaluating fighters from the Islamic State that it did in Vietnam — underestimating the enemy’s will, according to James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Clapper’s comments came in a telephone interview Wednesday, in which he summarized the elements of a new National Intelligence Strategy released this week. Clapper also answered some broader questions about intelligence issues confronting the country. Asked whether the intelligence community had succeeded in its goal of providing “anticipatory intelligence” about the extremist movement in Syria and Iraq that has declared itself the Islamic State, Clapper said

Rift widens between Obama,

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year. Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go-to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight. Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.

Weeks before the State Department assured Americans that things were operating “normally” at its consulate in the Kurdish capital of Erbil in August, concerned procurement officials were quietly saying the advance of militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, meant the government needed to shell out tens of millions of dollars to counter a “rapidly deteriorating” security situation. On a no-bid basis, the State Department nearly doubled the size of a task order to defense contractor Triple Canopy, which had been hired to train Iraqi security forces but was asked to now perform diplomatic security and

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose.

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "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." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

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.”

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.

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

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.
