President Barack Obama teed off again on Thursday, just 24 hours after pictures of his wide grin on the golf course drew condemnation in the wake of the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley. ´Admit it,´ a White House pool reporter emailed the press corps. ´You all made small-dollar bets that POTUS would be playing golf today. And ... you would be right!´ ´We are at the Farm Neck Golf Club at 1:13 pm. and POTUS is hitting the links again.´ The president drew fire Wednesday after reacting to Foley´s on-camera slaying for just five minutes, and then gripping his

Comments:
*beheaded journalist James Foley

The horrors just never end with Obama. Don´t these complete idiots in his regime get it? We are being made the laughing stock of the entire world. It just stuns me that those who are so concerned about optics are just mind boggling in their ignorance.

Sounds like an obsession, an addiction, a compulsion; whatever it is, it is not healthy.

He is so egomaniacal that he does not care, maybe he can´t and is therefore a sociopath.

In any event, it seems that something is very wrong with him.

With steely nerve the Anointed One approaches the tee. His cool confidence gives onlookers a thrill up their legs as the smartest man to ever hold the highest office knocks the ball a stupendous 125 yards and into the rough grass. How like him to be bored with the fairway and offer himself a challenging second shot.

Even Obama´s most vocal critics may not wish to admit the truth: the golf is not a distraction or evidence of skewed priorities.

It is cover. This man is the world´s biggest coward in the world´s most important job. He is paralyzed by fear so the best option is to avoid the job altogether.

Since his first campaign, he was running to "gyms" in every town early in the morning..watching him then, I became convinced that he was getting fixes of his drug of choice, enough to tide himn over for the day, he was hyperactive through 14 hour days, remember?
Now I believe he gets his fixes at the golf course..perhaps a promise to Moochelle not to use in the vicinity of the girls?
I think we can all agree that his behavior is not normal.

President Obama began outlining a sweeping and long-term strategy Wednesday night for combatting the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, launching what could be the biggest counterterrorism campaign of his presidency. “Tonight, I want to speak to you about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” Obama said in a prime-time speech delivered from the White House. According to prepared remarks, Obama said the offensive against the militant group will not involve combat troops but a “steady, relentless effort” through

Washington - Former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney -- a longtime journalist before he joined the Obama administration in its infancy -- is back in the media game as a political analyst for CNN. (Snip) CNN: From a communications strategy perspective, when do you guys make the calculation that an issue deserves a national address in primetime? Carney: The truth is we would do it more, but the networks, especially the broadcast networks, are not always willing to say yes. The threshold question is, you know, is it of national significance on a major issue -- something that the president

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants President Obama in his speech on ISIS Wednesday night to reject the jihadists’ “misappro-priation of Islamic terms and concepts,” and to recognize that the terrorist group was created by “the lack of freedom and justice in the region.” CAIR leaders plan to join other local and national Muslim leaders in a Capitol Hill viewing of Obama’s prime-time address to the nation on a strategy to counter the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) threat. CAIR’s national executive director Nihad Awad made it clear what Muslims in the U.S. will be looking out for in

Via Ace, something to keep in mind tonight while The One is doing his johnny-on-the-spot shtick about fighting jihadism in Iraq. “Lie” is my word, not Tim Arango’s, but read his comment and tell me what’s more likely. That the vast American intelligence community was “ignorant” of how bad things were in a country where we’d spent eight years developing assets? Or that the White House had every reason to know how dangerous Iraq was becoming but chose to suppress that information because the truth was problematic?

Ugh. It’s general election season — and John McCain is back in demand. With Republican primaries are over and Senate hopefuls in tough races no longer vying to outflank opponents on their right flank, the 2008 Republican nominee and infamous Senate “maverick” is being sought out on the campaign trail. He’s already stopped by purple Virginia and New Hampshire to stump for the GOP campaigns of Ed Gillespie and Scott Brown, and now the Arizona Republican is ready to go farther afield.

In this hyperpartisan age, there is one point of agreement between Republicans and Democrats on foreign policy--that is, in addition to the newfound conviction that Congress need not exercise its constitutional authority over war: namely, that there shall be no "boots on the ground in Iraq." It is a view requiring immediate clarification: there may be more U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq, but no combat troops will be sent. President Barack Obama offered that reassurance in his addresses to the nation. His former rival, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said the same in an interview with the BBC on Hard Talk this

9/11 Tributes, Radical Islam

For the 2008 Presidential GOP convention I was asked to narrate more than 80 percent of the videos shown over those few days. The 9/11 tribute video was something I especially wanted to do. For me, the most important issue of our 21st century is the War on Terror, specifically from that which it is engendered, radical Islam. While, of course, both conventions that year had their partisan speeches and differences, at least the nation would be united on the 9/11 tribute. I was wrong. Instead of a unanimous, heartfelt response, some on the left began to vehemently criticize and politicize the tribute.

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
