The tranquillity of Obama´s mind
CNN, by Newt Gingrich

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 7/19/2014 7:58:34 PM

When White House press secretary Josh Earnest said this week that President Barack Obama had "substantially improved the tranquillity of the global community," many observers reacted with disbelief. (snip) It is as though the more dangerous the world becomes the more Obama hides in a fantasy world of avoiding the responsibilities of the presidency. He uses the office to surround himself with court jesters who distract him in an enlightened and noble way from the growing failures of his policies and the rapidly expanding threats to the civilized world. Finally, as Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to flex his muscles

Comments:
Perhaps it will be the 25th Amendment and not Impeachment that will bring this evil man down.

I was surprised by the tone of this article coming from CNN. Then I noticed the author and CNN´s disclaimer that "The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author". I´m sure that´s the case!

...actually he may be the first to be taken away in a padded wagon, which would bring up the 25th...

...nothing here to be seen that wasn´t there in the beginning. Barry probably is a "clinical" narcissist, we know he has never stayed with a job. Was paid to write book he couldn´t finish. Best exemplifies the theory of "The Peter Principal", even before being elected to this office. And you could add a little of the "Peter Pan Syndrome" to his file...

...and here we are, six years in and there are those who wonder why this is all happening. As our country is assaulted from within, the world becomes more fragile...

Obama sees the US as the source of all instability in the world....so when he says the world is more tranquil it´s because he has been working at removing the US as world leader.

BO is a passive aggressive twit.

The whole "no drama" thing was presented as a man of "preternatural" calm. In reality he´s a vacant, narcissistic, shallow, and markedly unaccomplished man who just can´t be bothered by taking responsibility.

He looked completely ´out of it´ on Friday at his press briefing. He shows the wild emotional swings from day to day which is an indication he is using too much. Hopefully one day his handlers won´t want him to get in front of the microphone and we can all relax. A mental breakdown is not too far in the future if he doesn´t stop.

As a quick reminder, Valerie Jarrett told David Remnick the following:

“I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. … He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. … So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. … He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Extremely forceful and well-written. I noticed that CNN had to distance itself from Newt´s comments before they published the column, the cowards.

Still, the article states without equivocation what we on the Right,especially here on L.Com have been saying, that Obama is not simply out of touch, but perhaps out of his mind.

The self-image of Obama as a bear is so delusional that it brings into question the degree to which he is simply out of touch with reality.

When the "bear´s" entire repertoire, aside from decrying the downing of the airplane, consists entirely of joking around, smiling, hitting beer and burger joints, playing golf, and avoiding confrontations, it is legitimate to question his mental health.

I see CNN is testing the waters by dipping their toe into the pool of the truth...

My observation is that the Øbamboozler is very comfortable in his role as the official Hood Ornament of the Left. Plenty of golf outings, lavish vacations and even sharing a milk shake with Joe Biden (D Imbecile) are his reward for not working too hard and basically staying out of the way... per agreement with Vlad, while quietly working on weakening America any way possible as the world spins madly out of control with no leash on the Communists.

Obama is a simple-minded person. His thoughts consist of little more than catch phrases. Very little if any intelligence shows in his words or actions. He is rather an invisible being since there is never any substance in what he says and his day-to-day living is pure self-indulgence. The propagandists sold his pretentiousness as profundity. Hopefully that is finally wearing thinner and the silliness of it all is becoming apparent to a lot more people. He certainly is not a tranquil individual, but he is definitely intellectually and emotionally numb. A dangerous world is becoming even more frightening by having someone in the White House who is less than mediocre.

It should be obvious by now to anyone being fair that Obama is in way over his head. Like any person with a selfish teenager´s view of the world --- which began the day I was born and is here to support just me --- Obama moves on very quickly from his personal disasters which are never his fault. And when mom and/or dad says if I don´t clean my room, I´ll be grounded, why I just set fire to the house or crash the car! Now they have something to really worry about and will get off my back!

Notice how the IRS scandal, Benghazi, the VA deaths, illegal children invading Texas, etc. have all moved to the back burner as a new self-inflicted scandal looms on the horizon.

I realized he does this, purposely, to elevate himself. He can´t have a person with a wealth of knowledge, experience and stature around him. He wants cheerleaders and fund raising activists. That´s the extent of what he offers the American people.
Nothing more.

Have not had much time to read lately, so this has probably been pointed out many times, but --

Obama´s referring to himself as "the Bear" is a prime example of his cultural tone-deafness and superficial (though on paper, superior) education: Russia has always been "The Bear." Does this pipsqueak really think he can go toe-to-toe with Vladimir or is he just dumb as dirt?

I still maintain that we will not have the luxury of waiting out Obama´s last term. Something is going to happen either here or abroad that will force our hand.

Our country is slowly being killed by a death of a thousand cuts. I´m afraid that if Congress fails to act to stop a madman there will be trouble not seen in over a century.

History is filled with lessons. A great many wise men learned from those lesson; Like Machiavelli. Like Sir. Winston Churchill. They graphically understand the mind of hollow leaders like Øbama. The damage such men do when they come to power is unimaginable. It always leads to massive human misery and a cessation of civilization. In a truth- we elected Øbama, knowing virtually nothing about him. We deserve the misery he is about to spill upon us. But, it shames me to say, We knew better!

I think there´s a real chance that some of the big shot Dems will huddle with the Pubs and make a deal to get rid of Obama. Back room deals will be made. After all, D.C. is a gold mine for the professional politicians, lobbyists, and crooked lawyers. They just have to keep the electorate dumb and happy.

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

Since Barack Obama has been the Hindenburg of Presidents on the domestic front, there hasn´t been as much commentary as you´d expect about the fact that he has been the Titanic of Presidents on foreign policy. George W. Bush certainly made his mistakes as President, primarily in Iraq, but you did at least get the sense that his administration was full of capable, serious adults sincerely grappling with a new strategic problem for the country. On the other hand, when it comes to foreign policy, Obama comes across like a bored kid playing war because his mother won´t let him come

Two hundred years ago on Aug. 24, the U.S. Capitol and the White House went up in flames. If not for the quick thinking of a State Department clerk, the Declaration of Independence, and many other documents dating to the founding, would have as well. On the morning of Aug. 20, 1814, Secretary of State James Monroe stood atop a bluff near Aquasco Mills, and gazed three miles south toward Benedict, a village on Maryland’s Patuxent River. Though he was without a spyglass, through squinted eyes Monroe spotted British ships coming up the river and their soldiers coming ashore. With that,

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

Leading astrologers say that Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is destined for a future working on social justice and will enjoy a strong relationship with her proud grandparents, Hillary and Bill. After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter. “She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that
