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

Washington Post, by Glenn Kessler

Original Article

“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. So, let me

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.

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama says House Republicans are trying to pass the most extreme and unworkable version of an immigration bill even though they know the bill isn’t going anywhere. Republicans are pushing legislation that could clear the way for eventual deportation of more than 500,000 immigrants brought here illegally as kids and address the surge of immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Obama says Republicans know that legislation won’t succeed in the Senate. He says Republicans aren’t even trying to solve the problem. He says they’re just trying check a box leaving town for their annual August recess. House Republicans

A small private jet based in Atlanta has been dispatched to Liberia to pick up two Americans who have been infected with the Ebola virus. Officials say the jet can only carry one patient at a time and is outfitted with a special, portable tent designed for transporting patients with highly infectious diseases. The two Americans who contracted the virus are Dr. Kent Brantly, a former JPS Hospital resident in Fort Worth, and Nancy Writebol of Charlotte, N.C., a hospital hygenist. Both work for North Carolina-based Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian relief organization. It is not known which patient will be

BUFFALO, NY — Donald Trump remains in the running to purchase the Buffalo Bills. Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, confirmed in an email to The Associated Press on Thursday that the real estate mogul has been chosen to advance to the next round of bidding to purchase the team. Cohen said he was informed of the decision by Morgan Stanley, the banking firm overseeing the sale of the team for late owner Ralph Wilson’s estate. “Mr. Trump’s significant wealth, name recognition and real estate knowledge makes him a viable option,” Cohen said. Trump is bidding on his own after electing against being

KARNES CITY, Texas— Federal immigration officials on Thursday sought to show the softer side of immigrant detention, complete with cartoon wall murals, stuffed animals, playgrounds, snacks and a hair salon at a South Texas facility that will house women and their children who crossed the border illegally. With a surge in illegal immigration in recent months, especially children traveling alone and parents bringing in children from Central America, authorities moved to convert an all-male detention facility about 50 miles Southeast of San Antonio into one that could temporarily house families. The Karnes County Residential Center is the third such family

More than three years after its passage sparked massive protests that jammed the Capitol Square, the state Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of a divisive state law that sharply curtailed the collective bargaining rights of most public workers. In upholding Gov. Scott Walker’s signature piece of legislation, the court handed the governor a major victory three months before he seeks re-election. The decision also cast doubt on the validity of several union contracts negotiated after a lower court found the law unconstitutional. In its 5-2 decision, the court said public workers in Wisconsin do not have a constitutional right to

11.4 million Americans age 16 and over have left the workforce since President Obama took office in January 2009, according to data released today from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). In July 2014, there were 92,001,000 Americans, 16 and over, who were classified as “not in the labor force,” meaning they not only did not have a job, but they didn’t actively seek one in the last four weeks. This number has increased by 11,472,000 since January 2009, when the number of Americans not in the labor force was 80,529,000. The number of Americans not in the labor force

Obama warns GOP — I’m acting

So today House Republicans may take one more stab at trying to pass a bill to address the border crisis. But their bill has been jacked so far to the right that Dems won’t support it, and at any rate, last night Republicans blocked the Senate Dem border proposal. So Congress won’t address the crisis until September at the earliest. The question now is how far this goes in clearing space for Obama to act alone on immigration — not just on the border crisis, but on easing deportations. And the president is letting Republicans know that they should be

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations.

Bill O’Reilly obviously doesn’t care for how President Obama and the Democrats are running things, but tonight he also had some tough words for the GOP. He asked guest Kate Obenshain why the Republicans continue to remain in the muck with the left and try to “destroy one another” instead of getting things done. O’Reilly asked, “Shouldn’t they rise above it?” Obenshain argued that it’s Democrats doing all the nasty politicking and name-calling, as well as the ginning up of impeachment. O’Reilly, however, noted some conservatives are bringing it up and said there’s “plenty of hate on both sides.” Obenshain objected, “No,

Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment.

An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in Mr. Obama’s
