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.

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"

Why Is First Lady Scarce in Campaign?

MILWAUKEE — She can rouse a crowd as she did here this week, connect with women and drive turnout among African-American voters. Yet despite the nail-biting closeness of state contests to decide which party will control the Senate, Michelle Obama has been largely absent from the campaign trail so far. She has her reasons, Democrats say: Mrs. Obama hates to be away from her daughters. She loathes Washington’s toxic politics. She resents Republicans for their opposition to her husband’s agenda. But she also believes some Senate Democrats have been insufficiently supportive of her own efforts to end childhood obesity.

Referring to Republicans, Pelosi said, "Their days are numbered. I know that in two years there will be a Democratic Congress and a Democratic President." Pelosi has publicly urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president and said if Clinton does decide to run she would win.

WASHINGTON — Julia Pierson, the director of the Secret Service, is resigning in the wake of several security breaches, according to administration officials. The resignation came less than a day after lawmakers from both parties assailed Ms. Pierson’s leadership and said they feared for the lives of the president and others in the protection of the agency. A 30-year veteran of the Secret Service, Ms. Pierson was supposed to have been the one to repair the agency’s reputation after scandals that raised questions about a culture that gave rise to incidents involving drinking and prostitution during overseas trips.

ATLANTA - Gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) make up 2 percent of the U.S. population but are the group most definitively affected by HIV, with 63 percent of those newly infected by HIV representing this group.

Among Americans living with HIV, 52 percent were MSM – and a significant number of men with HIV are not receiving treatment. “Gay, bisexual, and other

Nearly 35,000 walruses were discovered this month on a northwest Alaskan shore as result of being unable to find sea ice to rest upon, a problem aggravated by climate change, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said. The unusually massive walrus gatherings were first spotted on Sept. 13 when NOAA conducted its annual arctic marine mammal aerial survey, a spokeswoman told the Associated Press. The marine mammals use sea ice as diving platforms to hunt for food in shallow areas, or as resting points to avoid long, exhausting swims. While it is normal for sea ice to recede into

Ever get the sense that the middle class is downwardly mobile, being pressed to the floor and squeezed to the limit? It’s not happening by accident. Someone is doing the squeezing: a new class of entertainment and tech plutocrats, cheered on and abetted by a priesthood of media, government and academic elites.(snip) This New Class, for instance, venerates the city and despises suburbia. They think you should feel the same way — and in innumerable magazine and newspaper pieces, they twist facts to make it sound as if America loves living in apartments and taking trains to work.

The United States informed Iran in advance of its intention to strike Islamic State militants in Syria and told Tehran that it would not target the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a senior Iranian official told Reuters. "Iran was concerned about Assad´s position and his government being weakened in case of any action against IS (Islamic State) in Syria and brought this issue up in meetings with Americans," a senior Iranian official said on condition of anonymity. "This issue was first discussed in Geneva and then was discussed thoroughly in New York where Iran was assured that Assad and

Former Virginia senator Jim Webb said today he is "seriously" considering a 2016 presidential bid, and will make a decision within the next two to five months. "I am seriously looking at the possibility of running for president," Webb, a Democrat, said in an appearance at the National Press Club. "We´ve had a lot of discussions among people I respect and trust about the future of this country, and we´re going to continue to have these discussions over the next two to five months," he said.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.

Thursday while speaking at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, President Barack Obama giggled and raised his arms as he mocked the Fox News Channel for it´s reporting on ObamaCare. Obama said, "There is a reason fewer Republicans, you hear them running around about ObamaCare, cause while good affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News it turns out its working pretty well in the real world."
