Inside the Beltway:
White House grade slips to ‘F’

Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/13/2014 7:59:09 PM

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many

An "F" to me by 0bama means the American people are "screwed."

These are historic times. I spend most of my waking hours in a frightful and dreadful awe of what may soon befall us because of our President´s wickedness. Obama and Holder seem to be the kind of men that would shake their fists at God.

An F? I think the Lord might give him an "H".

I´m sorry but it´s way too late for such ´school house´ antics. This president has been pretty up front as to his intention to obliterate this country as we know it. The media has aided and abetted him, and are just now having 2nd thoughts about him? Our country is moving ever closer to confrontation and conflict...way passed time for passing out grades and running opinion polls.

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Any sentient human knows that no Leftist could ever take this oath and actually mean it. Any Leftist who takes this oath is a brazen liar, and everyone knows it.

So, hopefully, historians will not just be grading Obama on an A-F scale, but explaining why he was never eligible for the office in the first place.

People who criticize Obama for his many failures and then his ability to blithely go on his merry way and play golf without any sense that it could send the wrong message just don´t get it. Obama is PROUD of what he has accomplished. He is a happy man because he is winning! Who has even come close to stopping his unbridled destruction of this country? Who holds him accountable? While the Republicans file lawsuits and hold meaningless investigations, Obama is busily doing exactly what he said he would do, fundamentally transforming this country. If that is the test Obama is being measured by, then baby, he acing it!!!

All here on this site are correct but the real slap in the face will be the discovery of his origin of birth, his real religion, his grades and his sponsorship as a foreign student along with made up SS# with the out and out criminal fraud perpertrated on America. It will be discovered after he is out of office. Rage will follow that we and our nation were destroyed by this fraudulent, America hating, communist, muslim person.

Doesnt matter what grade he earns or what his poll numbers are. He isnt on the 2016 ballot and he will continue to occupy the Oval Office for another 30 months.

So long as there are 34 democrats in the senate, any chance of removing him from office is non-existant. In fact, the only way that he is "removed" from office is if the military decides to protect the constitution from enemies foreign and "domestic" Another unlikely scenario considering that Obama has been running our the senior military officers and appointing his own.

Worse than that is the question of Obama´s mental state. He´s been much more passive/aggressive than usual lately. His speeches are rambling, incoherent and filled with invective sniping.

He has pulled off of the world stage completely and has focused only on fundraising and calling Republicans names.

And what is with this "the bear is loose" stuff? Something is not right.

While I am skeptical that enough Senators could find their "courage" to follow the Constitution by convicting Barry once the House would file Articles of Impeachment, I do believe that lady Truth will eventually reveal herself.

Thank you, #14, for listing the mysterious details to which voters should be entitled for any candidate for office paid for by our taxes. There are some things, yes, that a politician doesn´t need to reveal about himself/herself, but one´s origin of birth and one´s grades in all schools attended, are not in that "private" category, especially since the Constitution requires origin of birth.

Meanwhile the plan to destroy the country from within is at warp speed ahead of the mid term elections. When all of the pink slips on the front lines meets another crisis. And the diseases streaming across the border and being transported nationwide meets the obamacare stresses medical system, and Russia and China build their arsenal and plot to destroy the dollar while supplying Hamas with bombs. Now holder sneaks out of his hole to claim racism . Oh happy Monday folks.

A freind of our family had a son in highschool who was absolutely disinterested in academic persuits. The boy refused to do any homework, worked on cars and motorcycles all day, skipped classes, He was not rude to teachers or school authorities, he was just in another world. One day he brought home a report card...all "F"- and his parents and teachers were simply at a loss on what to do with him. "F" meant absolutely nothing to this kid.

I think our so-called President is in the same mind set. A poor rating means nothing to him. He has us by the short hairs and knows there is nothing we can really do but let his time in office run out. Unfortunately, our time is running out as a free nation, too.

All we can do is shake our heads in shame and say, "My God! What have we done?"

As pointed out already, we cannot expect the military to rise up and protect this country by taking control of the government. The only other choice we have is to have enough citizens rise up and fully exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. It´s times like this that the founders put the amendment in the Constitution in the first place. And if we don´t have us another little revolution, then we deserve that which is being forced on us by what in reality is a small number of persons that crave the power to run thing their way. I´m ready to join. Are you?

Drone schools spring up in the US

Capitalizing on an anticipated boom in the unmanned-aircraft industry, several US universities and colleges are launching training programs for future drone pilots. The problem: the US Federal Aviation Administration says its rules barring commercial use of drones apply to teaching programs as well, effectively prohibiting students from hands-on instruction. So the schools are teaching tomorrow’s drone pilots with simulators, textbooks and more novel workarounds. (Snip) “We don’t have to do much recruiting.

President Obama is re-naming an African fellowship program in honor of the late South African freedom fighter Nelson Mandela. Obama will make the announcement Monday during a town-hall-style meeting with guests who participated in the inaugural — and soon to be re-named — Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, officials said. Discussing the fellowship program during a visit to South Africa last year, Obama said that "we want to engage leaders and tomorrow´s leaders in figuring out how we can best work together." The meeting is one in a series of upcoming events dedicated to U.S.-African relations,

Well, so am I,” the former Alaska governor proclaimed Sunday on her Facebook page. “So let’s go rogue and launch our own member-supported channel. “ In a video on sarahpalinchannel.com, Palin calls the new subscription-based network a “community” where she and viewers can share ideas. “I want to talk to directly to you on our channel on my terms and no need to please the powers that be,” she says, promising to go beyond soundbites and to “cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

Washington - President Barack Obama could act without congressional approval to limit a key incentive for U.S. corporations to move their tax domiciles abroad in so-called "inversion" deals, a former senior U.S. Treasury Department official said on Monday. By invoking a 1969 tax law, Obama could bypass congressional gridlock and restrict foreign tax-domiciled U.S companies from using inter-company loans and interest deductions to cut their U.S. tax bills, (Snip) A recent sharp upswing in inversion deals is causing alarm in Washington, with Obama last week urging lawmakers to act soon on anti-inversion proposals from him and other

Emphasizing the need for “an immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire,” President Barack Obama talked by phone Sunday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the White House said. The discussion came on the same day that attempts at extending a 12-hour ceasefire in fighting between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip came undone, with both sides blaming the other. Secretary of State John Kerry has been pressing the two sides to halt the fighting that has claimed more than 1,100 lives, most of them Palestinian.

Detroit has drawn fire from all over the world for shutting off water to customers delinquent on their bills, but the city isn´t unique. Cities across the country do it also. In Michigan, Hamtramck, Warren, Pontiac, Eastpointe, Romulus and other cities have shut off delinquent customers as a way to improve collections. Elsewhere, so have other big cities such as Baltimore and St. Louis. (Snip) "If you never shut the water off for anybody, those people who continue to pay have to shoulder the entire cost of a system that is servicing a lot of customers that aren´t paying. That's not a sustainable business model."

Her starting salary: $600,000 a year. “For most of my life I did deliberately

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., warned that the extension of nuclear talks with Iran, which freed up $2.8 billion in frozen oil export revenues for Tehran, means that more money will be funneled to militants in the Gaza strip even as the U.S. works to conclude a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Rogers, in an interview on CBS´ "Face the Nation" Sunday, said Iranian funds help supply Hamas with weapons. "That´s what´s so frustrating with the administration," he said "All of this works together. You can´t just pick and choose one particular region; it has to work in concert.

Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television. The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel.

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

In 2012, four years after sort-of-stumping-but-not-really for her mother’s presidential campaign, Chelsea Clinton sat down for a lengthy, laudatory profile for Vogue. “Historically, I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye,” she said. “And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life.” Last April, Clinton told Fast Company magazine much the same thing.

World leaders are increasingly pointing to U.S. President Obama’s failures in the Middle East. Some are direct and blunt. For example, during his recent visit to Brazil, Russian President Vladimir Putin was asked by journalists about U.S. sanctions against Russia due to the Ukrainian crisis.

She walked through her running tests and got winded climbing stairs, yet a physically unfit female FDNY probie was still allowed out in the field like a normal graduate — and given a year to pass, The Post has learned. “She’s literally the most pathetic specimen of physical fitness I’ve ever seen,” fumed an academy classmate of Choeurlyne Doirin, 39, who was given a uniform and a “light-duty” assignment even though she did not graduate on June 2 with the other 286 cadets.
