Obama: ´I ran for President
to fight for Americans´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

President Obama's weekly remarks
Hi, everybody. This week, I spent some time in Colorado and Texas, talking with people about what’s going on in their lives. One was Elizabeth Cooper, a college junior this fall. She wrote to tell me something I hear often: how hard it is for middle-class families like hers to afford college. And she shared something I know many of you feel when you wonder what’s going on in Washington. She said she feels “not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” I ran for President to fight for Americans just like Elizabeth — people who work hard, do everything right,

There he goes again!

HE is the reason so much is out of whack, while he claims things couldn´t be better!

How many of my fellow L.dotters are better off than they were this time even 6 months ago?

This is a very dillusional man. You can make statistics say just about anything if you don´t take into account everything.

The biggest lie is that he ran for president to save us hard-working people. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Nothing is ever his fault--he is always "fighting for us"... I just wish he would leave me alone and quit "helping".

I think he ran so he could travel free and get away from his cranky wife and the mother in law from hell. Otherwise he just lets ValJar run and screw up the country.

Oh yes, he gets free junk food.

I have a suggestion for Elizabeth,“not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” She needs to get some self respect, and get to work. She should be thanking God she´s not poor enough for people to worry about, start caring about the people around her instead of worrying about who´s caring for her, and start asking what she can do for her country instead of wondering what hand-out she qualifies for. Geesh.

Unmitigated liar. He needs to deport illegals, cut the number of H-1B visas, stop spending our money on unnecessarily deluxe and frequent vacations, stop alienating (if you´ll excuse the word) our allies, quit lying . . . .

I don´t need to list all this and much, much more, we all know what his failings are and what he´s done and is doing to our country.

Coward (noun): a person who hides behind women and children instead of fighting for himself.
The Zero in the Oval Office is using human chains. That was bad when the Taliban did it, but good when he does it.
Let him come out from behind his teleprompter and face an audience which has not been scripted with allowed questions.
Put him under oath.
He doesn´t even try to conceal his lies.
He just keeps piling them up.

Well Elizabeth Cooper perhaps when you are a little older or actually did deep into our constitution you will find out that your government is what has caused the affordability of higher education. Get government out of education and watch costs return to an affordable cost for everyone who wants to attend college. Government is the problem, not the solution.

Elise Stefanik gives the Republican Party´s Weekly Remarks Hi, I’m Elise Stefanik, and I’m running for Congress in New York´s 21st District. I´m proud to say I was born and raised in Upstate New York. And I grew up in a small business family. When I was a kid, my parents risked everything they had to start our family´s small business. And more than 20 years later, we’ve been proud to work with hundreds of small businesses in New York´s North Country. But Washington has made it harder for small businesses like ours to succeed and grow.

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. I’m at Millennium Steel in Princeton, Indiana, to have a town hall with workers on National Manufacturing Day. Because in many ways, manufacturing is the quintessential middle-class job. And after a decade of losing jobs, American manufacturing is once again adding them — more than 700,000 over the past four and a half years. In fact, it’s been a bright spot as we keep fighting to recover from the great recession.

"I love you too, Wisconsin!" Sounds like Barack Obama´s standard speech opening after someone in the adoring audience on cue shouts, "We love you, Barack!" Except these days it isn´t Barack. It´s the other Obama, Michelle, the one who became suddenly so proud of America back in 2008 when her husband was first running for presidnt. To be sure, she´s still doing the goody-goody, Tide-clean first lady stuff that they all do with students, moms and kids. But Mrs. Obama has also again taken on an aggressive role for Nov. 4.

A couple of weeks ago, Barack "If You Like Your Health Plan" Obama assured Americans the penetration of the deadly Ebola virus into the United States was an "unlikely event." Now that the first confirmed case is here already, ravaging the feverish body of an unidentified visitor from Liberia quarantined in a Dallas hospital, Obama is, as you´d expect, out of town raising money. He´s in Chicago where he dined late last night with pals in the trendy River North area. Today, he´ll attend a fundraiser [Snip] then try to change the subject of national public discussion from his ISIS

Remember back in the 2012 presidential campaign when Barack Obama said things like: "Al Qaeda is on the run. We have decimated its core leadership. And Osama bin Laden is dead. But I don´t want Americans to think the struggle against terror is over. It´s not, by any means. We have a long fight ahead. By 2014, new terrorist groups may spring up and we´ll be back fighting in the Middle East." Neither do we.

President Obama´s weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. American leadership is the one constant in an uncertain world. That was true this week, as we mobilized the world to confront some of our most urgent challenges. America is leading the world in the fight to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL. On Monday, our brave men and women in uniform began air strikes against ISIL targets in Syria. And they weren’t alone. I made it clear that America would act as part of a broad coalition, and we were joined in this action by friends and partners, including Arab nations. At the United Nations in New York,

Joe Biden, according to his former Obama cabinet colleague Robert Gates, has the singular distinction of being wrong on just about every major foreign policy question in the last four decades. Even when he plagiarized. Biden opposed the Osama bin Laden assassination. Like Obama, Biden also opposed President Bush´s Iraq troop surge. Like Obama, Biden said the surge would actually make things worse in Iraq.

The military salute is a simple hand gesture but loaded with tradition, honor, symbolism and packed with respect, both given and returned. It began in the days of chivalry when knights would raise their right hand approaching other knights to show they had no weapon unsheathed. The salute seems often to confound civilians without military experience, who see it as somewhat akin to a fraternity hand sign. Every modern president since Truman has had military (and saluting) experience -- except two Democrats. And both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have had trouble with the salute.

Lurching on to the new week´s next news diversion, the Obama administration announced new regulations Monday to punish U.S. businesses that employ Americans, make profits and seek to protect the gains for shareholders, as is their fiduciary responsibility. The over-hyped administration moves came against so-called business inversions, a perfectly legal pro forma shift of corporate headquarters to a foreign country with corporate taxes lower than the United States´ confiscatory 35% rate. The goal was to crimp the economic appeal of such moves. Although Russia and North Korea would not be recommended, the money-saving

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
