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!!!

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.

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?

Egypt has a key role to play in countering Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on a visit to Cairo.

It saddens me that 20 years after my sister Nicole’s murder, we are still seeing the same crimes, just different names, over and over again. The Ray Rice case reflects our misunderstanding of what domestic violence is, and the Oscar Pistorius case reminds me so much of what happened to Nicole: victims defending their partners, and batterers blaming the victim. What is most chilling to me about what I have seen in the coverage of Ray Rice is that he has not atoned for his actions; he seems more concerned with how he is now viewed. And it’s Janay Palmer who is apologizing for her part of being knocked out cold.

"Ugandan authorities reported the discovery of an Al-Shebab terrorist cell in Kampala," it said in a statement.

The image I have of “Girls” star Lena Dunham, judging by last season’s episodes of the HBO series, is that of a girl riding a bicycle in the Hamptons in a two-piece bathing suit that is two sizes too small. Exposing her body in all of its glory is part of the Dunham hard-sell — you either buy into her “freedom at any cost” philosophy, or you don’t. How curious, then, that the New York Times, in choosing Dunham for the cover of its Culture Issue, on sale this Sunday, decided to photograph her as a piece of neoclassical art. The photographer, Victoria Diehl, modeled the Dunham portrait on a bust of Pauline Bonaparte as Venus Victrix

Dallas - Good coaches are also teachers, and Tricia Roos is a good coach. The Bishop Lynch volleyball team has won three state championships in her seven years as head coach. This season should be particularly special, not only because Bishop Lynch is trying to win its third state title in a row, but also because Coach Roos is five-and-a-half months pregnant.

Australia has raised its terror alert level to "high" for the first time since the national alert system was introduced in 2003. According to the four-level system, a reading of "high" means a terrorist attack "is likely," however the country´s Prime Minister Tony Abbott said no specific threat had been made. "This does not mean a terror attack is imminent, we have no specific intelligence of particular plots. What we do have is intelligence that there are people with the intent and capability to mount attacks," Abbott said at a press conference in Canberra on Friday.

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.
