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

Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper

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?

Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1.

Turkey approves military operations

Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen.

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

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. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?
