Obama says public not
familiar enough with issues

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/23/2014 10:59:23 PM

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

Comments:
Barry collects big bucks from a bunch of Hollywood LOFOs and condescendingly insults them, but they won´t even realize it.
Unfortunately for the Fundraiser-in-Chief, his harshest critics are the most informed on the issues and are even more so than he and his handlers.

What arrogance! and let´s not forget Stupidity. Berate your donors as you stuff your back pockets with their bills. What does he do with all the monies he has raked in As selfish as he is, little can go to the DNC. More than likely the majority going into his personal stash, but only after he pays his up front men and blackmailers. One here called him a mob boss (IIRC) Feel free to kick up it the ladder a notch and call it what it is....A Crime Lord. The title fits him well.

Doesn´t he know, thanks to the Internet, We are familiar with almost everything instantly ?

Perhaps he is the only one not familiar with the issues. Maybe if he spent as much time in the oval office as fundraising, he would know something too.

But, Barry, YOU control the media. They are your puppets and your slaves. They report what you tell them. They cover up your little naughties. They attack your opponents. And they sleep with your closest confidants. Are you telling us that the people who tell us what to think aren´t doing their jobs? Since they get their marching orders from you, what does that tell us about your familiarity with the ´issues´?

But, let´s make sure everyone can vote especially when they don´t understand the issues, right?

Here´s a thought, let´s unsure everyone voting must give fingerprint. It can, and should be cross-referenced with the multitude of criminal data bases, alien data bases, death notices, and acros state lines.

It would not dis-enfranchise anyone, and would be a terrific check on only 1 vote per person who´s eligible to vote.

The conventional wisdom is that his in- your- face antics is taking the Dems over the cliff in Nov. -- and maybe that´s right. But either he doesn´t care in a self delusional narcissism
or he knows he´s got the election stolen just as he did in 2012. I pray it´s the former.

Its impossible to be familiar with the number of different lies this administration tells. The above average voter can´t even keep up with all the different versions of the Benghazi scandal and others. This is by design from the regime. While we are spending all of our time trying to get to the truth the regime continues on its path of destruction.

What exactly are these Hollywood idiots getting out of all the money they throw at this president? They brand themselves by siding with a loser, Obama´s economy is so lousy people can´t afford to go to the movies, and he´s an anti-capitalist. You would think Hollywood would want a robust economy so people would have jobs and money in their pockets. And he keeps soaking them! I don´t get it.

Absolutely correct. Obama is telling his supporters to donate to the Democratic Party even though corruption prevails BECAUSE no one can punish him for his illegal actions or stop him from continuing them, because they don´t have enough information, do not care,or do not have the means to do so. Donate to him because his Administration is above the law; therefore, he will succeed in his goal of destroying the USA and his supporters will profit from his Administration´s wrongdoings. My opinion.

And what about ‘a whole bunch of other stuff’ – such as an allegedly well-educated Ivy Leaguer over the chronological age of 21 speaking in public on or below the level of a six-year-old? What about that?

He just told the world what his and the Democrat Party´s strategy is and what they think of the American public at large.

"...Not familiar with the issues" = "...are ignorant and malleable"

He is also letting Hollyweird know they have an important role...

"Hey, as long as you keep the people focused on your entertainment drivel, they will stay ignorant and we can keep doing what we are doing. But we have to make them believe that the Republicans are the ones obfuscating and bamboozling (the public)" Which is just Demonrat deflection -- that is, "we are deceiving and tricking the public"

Holder expects criminal charges

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department expects to bring criminal charges in the coming months in investigations involving financial institutions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he called for better incentives for Wall Street whistleblowers who report crime. Holder did not describe the investigations in a speech at New York University’s law school except to say that they’re “focused on the conduct of individuals” and involve wrongdoing that has undermined the financial markets. He used the address to urge Congress to raise a cap on the amount of money that a whistleblower can receive for reporting misconduct. Such cooperation is essential since

Chalmers faces 10 felonies, including armed robbery, car theft and fleeing. Isiah Deshawn Thomas, 18, is charged with five counts, Anthony Griffis, 17, with two. Two juveniles were also arrested and as many as three other suspects remain at large. According to the complaint: Things

Ready for Hillary? Not so fast. Zephyr Teachout, fresh off her strong second-place showing in the Democratic primary against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, pleaded for more Democratic candidates to challenge the presumed 2016 frontrunner. “Please, we need people to run against Hillary Clinton because if she’s not debating anyone on education policy or on tax policy then we all lose,” she told MSNBC’s Krystal Ball on Wednesday. “Not only does she need a challenger from the left, we should have 5 people—10 people—running for president,” she argued. “If we don’t have a Democratic Party challenger, that is a democratic tragedy.”

Obama, a master of both high and low sartorial styles, will be hosting a Fashion Education Workshop at the White House next month. According to an email obtained by Women´s Wear Daily, celebrated designers like Prabal Gurung, Reed Krakoff, Maria Cornejo, and Bibhu Mohapatra have been invited to attend "to bring members of the fashion industry to the White House and enlighten, educate and mentor the next generation of fashion leaders." In addition, college students from around the Washington area will attend the Oct. 8 educational workshop, which

Executive: Obamacare Is Shifting

Given the massive effort behind convincing us that Obamacare is a resounding success, it’s almost surprising that a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll found support languishing at 34%. Part of the problem is the credibility Obamacare supporters lose by attempting to prove two questionable propositions. First, that Obamacare is having a positive impact on our health care system and, second, that it’s doing so without any negative impact on our economy. For example, a recent report by the Urban Institute and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, both Obamacare supporters, found “little evidence” that Obamacare’s employer mandate is affecting part time employment.

Yesterday, former Vice President Al Gore presented his fourth annual ‘24 Hours of Reality.’ Broadcast to millions of people, the event is “dedicated to sparking action on climate change.” As with most Gore productions, only carefully pre-screened questions are allowed from journalists. Considering what’s at stake—billions of dollars, millions of jobs, and, if Gore is right, the fate of the global environment—that is not good enough. Reporters must be encouraged to ask any questions they like. Several leading climate experts were asked what question they would most like media to ask Gore in a public forum.

Even we were shocked when we researched our new book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” at the extent to which Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has politicized the Justice Department and put the interests of left-wing ideology and his political party ahead of the fair and impartial administration of justice. However, there is no doubt that the American public has also recognized just how politically corrupt Mr. Holder is, given this month’s very embarrassing poll conducted by Hart Research for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. The poll asked respondents their opinions about 10 different national political officials, ranging

A handful of protesters crashed a speech Hillary Clinton delivered at a labor union’s headquarters in Manhattan tonight, attacking the former first lady for supporting the president’s decision to delay an executive action on immigration reform. “Undocumented, unafraid! Undocumented, unafraid!” the protesters, a group of several women and children, cried as Ms. Clinton was finishing a speech in support of the reauthorization of the Zadroga Act, a law that granted medical compensation and health care to survivors of the September 11 attacks. “Hillary Clinton hasn’t come out in support of our families,” said Mateo Taveras, a 19 year-old native of Colombia living

Minnesota´s ObamaCare exchange stands apart from every other state — and not only because its No. 1 insurer just threw in the towel. Tuesday´s stunning news that PreferredOne, which enrolled 59% of the state´s exchange members, won´t offer subsidized ObamaCare policies in 2015 is likely related to another unique feature of the exchange that has stunted its growth potential. In 2015, well more than half of MNsure exchange subsidies won´t go to insurers on the exchange, but to a public program serving households that fall between the cut-off for Medicaid and 200% of the poverty level. To date, this MinnesotaCare program for households

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

President Barack Obama insisted on Wednesday that he would not send ground troops into Iraqi combat zones to fight the ISIS terrorist army, directly contradicting his top general who said a day earlier that the president asked him for boots-on-the-ground recommendations ´on a case-by-case basis.´ (Snip)´As your commander-in-chief,´ Obama insisted, ´I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.´ On Tuesday, however, Joint Chiefs chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey told lawmakers that circumstances on the ground could drive him to push for American combat troops to be embedded with Iraqi army

First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her "favorite part about being in the White House." "About being in the -- about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys," Michelle Obama started. "Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
