New record high poll popularity for
the president--Putin, that is

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 7/18/2014 9:15:21 AM

After another grueling week of photo-ops, speeches and political fundraisers, President Obama is taking a getaway weekend today, up to Camp David. There, he won´t have to learn from the media the news that his arch-rival in the global presidential power sweepstakes, Russia´s Vladimir Putin, has tied a record high approval among his countrymen in a new Gallup Poll out this morning. As Obama wallows in the low 40´s in overall job approval among Americans, with even lower ratings in specific areas, Putin has just scored nearly twice that -- 83% approval.

Putin or Obama?

No contest for me. At least Putin loves the country he is President of, and is not trying to destroy its culture, tradition, economy, social values and patriotism.

Other than holding the office of President, perhaps the only thing the two have in common is that neither was born an American.

Does this mean that 83% of Russians approve of his complicity in shooting a Maylasian Airlines passenger aircraft yesterday? Sounds like it.

How do you deal with that PoV?

According to Klein, in "Blood Feud", Obama, who takes his marching orders from Valerie Jarrett and Michelle, thinks he is doing just fine even now, and history will prove him to have been great! I absolutely believe this, by the way. Arrogance is a great insulator.

I have said some positive things about Putin in the past, but must withhold further cheerleading until he "comes clean" in matters relating to Ukraine, the downed commercial aircraft, and the other former Soviet republics.

Will his legacy be that of a patriot, or a despot? Many despots have been popular among their countrymen until they have consolidated their power and started the "iron-fist" phase of their rule. When a nation has been defeated and its people feel humiliated, they are vulnerable to such. Then only drastic, often bloody, measures can restore ´normalcy´.

America is not immune to this cycle.

Let me add this: Reagan, Thatcher, and John Paul succeeded in ending the Cold War by challenging and appealing to Gorbachev´s patriotism and love of country. Fortunately for all mankind, Mikhail´s love of country prevailed.

We must make a similar appeal to Putin´s ´better side´ and pray that it can work once again. The alternative is still - unthinkable.

What wars? Obama finally speaks out

Many of you were no doubt busy at work these past 24 hours or seeking work or giving up seeking work. So we´ve thoughtfully assembled a quick update of the more important news during this period: Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his reply to President Obama´s demand to rein in Russian insurgents scorching eastern Ukraine. Using Putin's Buk missiles, the rebels downed two more Ukrainian fighter jets; one pilot was killed, the other ejected over insurgents and his fate can only be guessed. Crash investigators arrived in the same area to poke through what's left of the Malaysian passenger jet wreckage downed by a previous Russian Buk.

THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. Welcome to the White House. Please be seated. For our forces in Afghanistan, the battle of Wanat was one of the most fierce of this entire war. Forty-eight Americans, along with their Afghan partners, were manning their small base, deep in a valley when they were attacked by some 200 insurgents. And those insurgents seemed determined to overrun an even smaller post just outside the base -- an elevated patch of boulders and sandbags defended by just nine American soldiers.

President Obama’s weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. Over the past 52 months, our businesses have created nearly 10 million new jobs. The unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest point since 2008. Across lots of areas — energy, manufacturing, technology — our businesses and workers are leading again. In fact, for the first time in over a decade, business leaders worldwide have declared that China is no longer the world’s best place to invest — America is. None of this is an accident. It’s thanks to your resilience, resolve, and hard work that America has recovered faster and come farther than almost any other advanced country on Earth.

You may have noticed you couldn't avoid noticing Texas Gov. Rick Perry on television in recent days talking about the border crisis and the worsening illegal immigrant situation.

He'll leave the Austin capitol next January and, like many Americans, look for a job.

I saw what happens to people when they lose their liberty. When I came home, I decided that it wasn’t enough for me to simply enjoy freedom and liberty. I had to do my part

President Obama's weekly remarks
Hi, everybody. This week, I spent some time in Colorado and Texas, talking with people about what’s going on in their lives. One was Elizabeth Cooper, a college junior this fall. She wrote to tell me something I hear often: how hard it is for middle-class families like hers to afford college. And she shared something I know many of you feel when you wonder what’s going on in Washington. She said she feels “not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” I ran for President to fight for Americans just like Elizabeth — people who work hard, do everything right,

When Barack Obama was first running for the White House, way back in 2007 when a billion dollars seemed like a lot of money, he presented himself as the Great Uniter. Someone whose freshness, mixed race and background would bridge America´s inherent diversities and even end the "bitter, partisan divide" afflicting Washington. [Snip] At one time or another Obama has pitted Americans against each other by class, education, income, union membership, birth control use, tax status, climate beliefs, gender and wealth. This morning comes a Gallup Poll revealing that Obama splits Americans by religion.

Another busy campaign day on the road for President Obama. Fundraisers in three cities. Speeches. Photo-op games of pool. Filling up his time for the lame duck’s last 924 days. But POTUS ran into a tall problem, a professional pol named Rick Perry, longest-serving Texas governor ever. After collecting coin in Denver, Obama hoped to breeze through Dallas and Austin scooping up more from gullible donors for his hopeless bid to keep the Senate in Harry Reid´s shaky hands on Nov. 4. But Perry´s been preparing the ground for his own media offensive over the disgraceful inundation of suckered humans

Shootings, beheadings, hangings and crucifixions continued in ISIS-controlled Iraq over the holiday weekend. The Obama team also took a break from its grueling daily photo-ops designed to change the topic of discussion from all the ongoing Obama predicaments. [Snip] After a brief appearance at a party for military, Obama played golf. This afternoon he’s off for three days of Colorado and Texas fundraisers. Analysts, meanwhile, pored over an unusual videotape released by the terrorists currently conquering Iraq.

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row
