Obama’s claim that the GOP has
‘blocked every serious idea’

Washington Post, by Glenn Kessler

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/15/2014 6:50:36 AM

“So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.” –President Obama, weekly address, July 12, 2014 ~This has become a standard line in the president’s oratory, as part of making his case that he’s “acted this year to help working Americans on my own– when Congress won’t act.” The president started on this path on June 27, during a speech in Minnesota: “You know, sometimes I’m forcibly, you know, politic about how I say things, but I’m finding lately that I just want to say what’s on my mind.

Zippy has never had a serious idea. Even the idea to destroy America was given to him by others - Alinsky, Cloward, Piven, Frank Davis, his mother, etc.

The only idea zippy has ever had was to jump the circle of choomers in the choom wagon to get more dope for himself.

But to claim that “every serious idea” has been blocked is going too far–given that the president lauded at least three bills as aiding the middle class.Three Pinocchios.

Good for Kessler. It´s about time some major media outlets began telling the truth about O´s lies. This particular lie, that the GOP "blocked every serious idea" is a deliberate lie, meaning that O knows it isn´t true. It isn´t simply that he lied unknowingly. He knows full well that for many voters, continuing the lie about the GOP being the Party of No works. That it´s a lie doesn´t matter to our prickly postmodern POTUS.

I hope Kessler has good security. Obama abhors the truth being revealed. He tends to sic the IRS and the EPA on people who dare to shine the light under his rock.

Obama´s behavior should come as no surprise to anyone. All he knows is rabble rousing. That´s what a community organizer does - he whips up the community into a frenzy and points them towards the enemy.

The idea that this man had even one scintilla of qualification to be president of this country is an insult to every past president - including Jimmy Carter.

Obama lies because no one challenges him. It is that simple. He controls the narrative and until something happens to change that, Obama will continue to lie. Joe Wilson was correct when he spoke out. He has been proven right time and time again. Is anyone apologizing to him? What about those Republicans that forced Mr. Wilson to apologize? Surely, they want to set the record straight.

Most people reject the idea of dishonesty. They wouldn´t accept their spouse lying to them. They wouldn´t accept their children lying to them. They wouldn´t accept their friends lying to them. And they have a good sense when they´re being conned. It´s inexplicable, then, that so many are willing to accept a cacophony of lies from Obama---over and over again?

If "fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me" holds true, there are millions who should be very ashamed of their accessory to the demise of American freedom.

The problem is what Zero considers to be a serious idea. Here is a partial list.

Blocking the Keystone pipeline, failed investing in "green" companies, pick any foreign policy, trading terrorists for a deserter, wanting to close Gitmo with no exit strategy, IRS and DOJ infringement of free speech, $1 trillion wasted porkulus, amnesty for illegal aliens, cash for clunkers, PlaceboCare, leading from behind, war on coal, faking jobs reports, shaking insurance companies down to fund PlaceboCare, courting the Muslim Brotherhood, Benghazi, the concept of "you didn´t build that", food stamps a plenty, trillions of new debt, suing state governments, disdain for our allies, Fast & Furious gunrunning to drug cartels, Commie czars with no accountability, doubling gas prices, stacking the NLRB with union puppets, illegally cheating the GM bondholders, worldwide apologies, and hiring world class lying nimrods as press secretaries.

Hey, what´s not to block? Zero and his "ideas" are certifiable.

WaPo even links the Speakers site where it lists 50 Laws Passed, and their vote counts...most are stalled in the senate. http://www.speaker.gov/jobs

Particularly telling ineptitude on the part of Boehner´s Staff is the fact that it hasn´t been updated since Dec. 13th..and doesn´t list passage dates or how long they have sat in the Senate without action.

This constant blaming others is one of the many signs of the behavior of a psychopath. If you know the signs of a psychopath, then you are most likely aware of this, if not, you owe it to yourself to educate yourself and find out all about it so you know what Obama truly is. But I do not blame Obama for everything. Hitler had supporters who helped him achieve the most vile, wicked things he did. So who is truly the madman? The one who is leading or the people who support this insanity? And partial blame goes to the irresponsible voters.

Obama: GOP captive to
ideologically rigid group
Associated Press, by Darlene Superville    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/29/2014 11:05:59 PM     Post Reply
NEWPORT, R.I.— President Barack Obama on Friday blamed dysfunction in Congress on a Republican Party he said is captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction, urging like-minded Democrats to show up for November´s midterm elections. Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don´t believe in government to begin with, Obama said.

On Thursday, Modoc and Siskiyou counties in California, adjacent to Oregon, formally requested state officials to allow them to secede from the state and form a new state to be called Jefferson, according to the Sacramento Bee. The two counties’ governments directly petitioned the secretaries of the state Assembly and Senate after they had already submitted a petition to the secretary of state asserting that they weren’t represented strongly enough in the state.

Or Republicans have twisted his words.

A source familiar with the investigation said yesterday the man who made that loan - identified as "Person D" in federal documents - is believed to be Albert "Al" Lord, the former CEO of Sallie Mae, the giant student loan financing corporation.

[Snip] ´What I´ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we´re at than we currently are,´ Obama cautioned. He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A.

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in
