Terrorist horror, then golf:
Incongruity fuels Obama critics

New York Times, by Peter Baker and Julie Hirschfeld Davis

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 8/22/2014 5:49:46 AM

He had just hung up the telephone with the devastated parents before heading in front of the cameras. Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American. But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over

Comments:
It´s not Obama´s fault, he is totes heartbroken over this. It´s the fault of the ´critics.´

He is a Muslim. He defended Islam in his brief speech.
He did not express any emotion. His animation came with a fist bump on golf course.

How can anyone play that much golf day after day?

What a cheesy,cowardly way to do a lead in to a story.The Slimes doesn´t want to admit they´re appalled but only Obama´s critics,meaning republcans,when all kinds of liberals have spoken out about it also.

There is something terribly wrong with this man and the "msm" is refusing to write the truth about what is really going on. G-d help this country when this monstrous "administration" is finally exposed for what it is. There is a special place in he** for the nyslimes and the rest of them. Karma is a beautiful thing.

This is what we get with a pResident can´t even call islamic terrorism by name for what it is using euphamisms like "Overseas Contigency" instead of a war on terror.
Now we have very real blood-thirsty, humanity-hating, cut-throat, Hitler-loving, islamo-nazis roaming around setting the Middle East on fire with a stated goal of world domination and all we have is a buffoon fighting a war on Golf (have you seen him play?)!

If I were on vacation with Michelle, I´d seek any possible means of escape. On every vacation they have taken together, they seem to require two jets to cart them around. Obie is forever trying to spend time away from her.

In the White House, Obie would rather hop a jet to a fundraiser than be within 100 yards of the woman.

I wouldn´t subscribe to this pile of rubbish disguised as a newspaper if it were 100% off home delivery. What despicable journalism! What shameless reporting!

When the subject is Obama, the NYT has the same total lack of shame as Obama.

Best example is the NYT´s editorial board explanation that "Obama misspoke" when he blatantly lied on at least 38 occasions about "If you like your plan and your doctors, you can keep them". The NYT realizes that Obama could never have passed his fraud of ObamaCare without lies, so this so called paper of record had to lie about the lying president. This article on Obama´s critics of his cruel golf game after his Foley comments is simply more of the same.

The Times was just as protective of Stalin when he was exterminating millions of his citizens who similarly thought that if they like their private farms that they could keep their farms. Like most leftists, the publishers of the NYT believe that their socialist ends justify any and all means.

Another NYT screed straight from the desk of Valerie Jarrett who I am sure thinks that cancelling golf games or fundraisers in the wake of horrible tragedies is an ´empty political gesture´. Obama´s so-called ´critics´ are far beyond the perimeters of Washington. A large majority of the country have become completely repulsed by him and the NYT is right. Obama does not care. No one should be surprised by anything this vapid POS says or does.

Obama doesn´t need to do anything but read what is written by someone else on his teleprompter. He leaves everything to Valerie. The Press called Karl Rove Bush´s architect, but don´t dare call Valerie Jarrett Obama´s architect and builder. She is the one calling the shots. She goes everywhere with him never leaving his side except on the golf course. It is time for the NYT et al to call her on her incompetence.

I do not agree. Obama is a narcissist par excellence´ and cares very much what people think, what his legacy will be. Note how the only thing he reliably does now (and earlier as well) is go to fund raisers, where crowds of adoring sycophants surround him and reaffirm his own view of himself. I suspect the real truth is that he has a ever narrowing group of "advisors" around him, Valerie Jarret et al. and is walled off from reality.....they tell him history will rate him as preeminent and never mind the mosquitos buzzing about now. I doubt that he even sees articles like this one in the Times, or if he does he is assured that it is meaningless, transitory, and that his real value will be acknowledged after he leaves the White House, as with Lincoln, etc. (Plus, he can rest easy knowing he will be very very rich, via the same sycophants and speeches, a la the Clintons.)

"seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind"

His apologists are laboring to convince somebody, anybody, that 0bama can care deeply and dance laughing at the same time.

When you think about it, it´s merely an extension of the "compartmentalizing" they promoted to excuse Bill Clinton´s activities as a sexual predator.

It´s the ideology, stupid.

He vowed to avenge Foley´s death and to destroy ISIL. So, Slimes, tell us exactly what he has done in the last 48 hours to put that vow into motion? Oh, guess what? He played golf AGAIN yesterday!

"Unusually emotional"??? Did these writers watch Obama deliver that speech?

Presidents learn to wall off their feelings and compartmentalize their lives

I do not wish to be lectured to about how presidents "wall off their feelings", when anyone with eyes can see that Obama´s "feelings" are non-existent on this matter and other matters. He has a consistent pattern of coldness that permeates every speech he gives.

The only time he exhibits what can be called joy is when he is playing golf, eating junk food or being adored by the New York Times, who refuse to see his pathological chill.

To make coldhearted decisions in the best interest of the country...

Coldhearted is right, but the writers assume his decisions really are in the best interests of the country, which is inaccurate; look around America and the world at the economic and security carnage to see that his decisions are NOT in our best interests. He has made America and world worse off, not better.

And few presidents have been known more for cool, emotional detachment than Mr. Obama.

See, he´s cool-headed, not given to snap decisions, methodical, measured. That is how Obama has and is being spun. But that isn´t true either. He is cold, calculating, dithering, afraid of being found out to be uninformed in the ways of the world, and narcissistic to the point of paralysis -- inaction where action is needed. He cannot afford for his ego to be damamged. That is why there are so many layers between Obama and the real series of events -- placed there by Valerie Jarrett.

He is insulated. But he is not "walling himself off from emotion". He has none.

As usual, the "Bush meme" is dragged out. But there is an enormous difference: President Bush was serious about the fight against terrorism, which was one of the reasons the Left hated (and hates) him so much.

BO play-acts. You know he emulates his buds in Hollywood. They´re phonies. They know how to put on the show.

This is why he can wipe the corner of his eye and choke up, so strategically, go back behind the curtain, take off the costume of tragedian, and go out to frolic so gleefully.

(Bill Clinton was very good at this, too. Again, if journalists did their job, the phoniness would be exposed. And these shallow phonies would be shamed into oblivion-- or to Hollywood, where they belong.)

Is this must read linked to the wrong story, re Foley rescue mission-leak? One reason that info was leaked it is to not only sabotage future hostage rescue missions but to also send the enemy a message that what they are doing is working and keep up the good work-we can´t outwit cha. Deplorable action by White House and quite predictable.

Just look at that smile, he´s definitely in his element. He looks like a neon ice cream sandwich. His leisure/loafing activities remind of someone who has committed a crime(s) and is now off enjoying the spoils, freedom, much like OJ Simpson. Obama is just so evil.

Several Ldotters have referred to ValJar as Barry´s adviser and a few other un-named advisers. However, I seldom see news of different high-level officials coming and going to the WH carrying briefcases and notebooks and appearing very serious.

In years past, there often were pictures of Bush43 and his cabinet sitting around a table (in the Cabinet room?) and supposedly discussing very serious issues etc. I can´t remember any such pictures of Barry and his Cabinet - then again, I don´t watch the alphabet networks. With Bush43 I never felt those things were "staged".

Republicans should relearn Ronald Reagan´s use of humor to cut down Democrats (Liberals) to size. My RR favorite is:
The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they´re ignorant; it´s just that they know so much that isn´t so.

Amazing that the Commander in Chief after the short prompt speech about the ISSIS atrocity carried out by a ajihadist from the UK called John.The following are the people he has elected to keep us safe. John Kerry dont you know who I am . He always sticks in my mind when this traitor dressed in his fatiques spent all 3 weeks of service in Viet Nam . Name calling his fellow comrades in arms before Congress.Secretary of defence a lap dog for Obama. Then he has Military adviser Susan Rice a Benghazi liar.Then we have this (D.N.I) James R Clapper the one who lied before Congress. This occupant in the White house is not for real. Vacation, he is entitled to one holiday however the beheading of a USA citizen should demand Obama get back to Wasington and sit down with non political foreign affairs consultants and get down to the next move againgst ISSUS.For goodness sake Mr President dont relay to the whole world of the failed attenpt to save Mr Foley. Obama mentioned this rescue to make political re-election points. You are really not interested in Mr Foley´s beheading.There are estimated at least 2000 Muslim UK Muslims fightng for ISSUS and it would not be dfficult for these Englisg speaking terrorists from simply just walking across our southern border with the flow of children.There is never a day passes that this President gets deeper into trouble and USA and its people vulnerable from Attack by well trained financed Jihadists such as ISSUS.

Mundelein Seminary, Ill. — It’s 7:15 on Tuesday morning and, as on most mornings, Father Robert Barron, rector of the seminary here, unassumingly takes an open seat among the seminarians and faculty of Mundelein, and some of the staff and students of the University of St. Mary of the Lake. Father Barron is best known for his Catholicism series, which appeared on PBS not long ago, and his Word on Fire ministry (involving, among other things, YouTube videos); his media work flows from a mandate Cardinal Francis George gave him several years ago to evangelize the culture. But here he

A leading medical group on Monday recommended implantable rods and intrauterine devices (IUDs) as the best form of birth control for teenage girls other than abstinence.The new guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), published Monday in the group’s Pediatrics journal, touts birth control methods not commonly used in the U.S. despite widespread agreement about their effectiveness. The AAP says pediatricians, who teens consider “a highly trusted source of sexual health information,” should recommend, in decreasing order of effectiveness, progestin implants, IUDs, injectable contraception, and oral contraception for use among adolescents.The doctors call oral contraceptives the least effective options

The GOP’s favorite punching bag in President Barack Obama’s Cabinet is calling it quits. After six years of hostile exchanges at congressional hearings, scores of lawmakers calling for his resignation and a historic House vote holding him in contempt, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that he plans to leave by the end of the year. Republicans didn’t even wait until the official announcement to pillory Holder and celebrate his exit — Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina expressing “good riddance” and Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) “welcoming” the news of Holder’s departure, accusing him of attacking Louisiana. Rep. Darrell Issa

U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan prefers stairs to elevators and escalators. She shoots down congressional corridors so fast she leaves attending staff members struggling to keep up. The first-term North Carolina Democrat is known for being high-energy. On a typical Wednesday this summer, she was at the Capitol early for a closed Democratic strategy session, met one-on-one with visiting constituents for her weekly Carolina Coffee, chaired a hearing of one of the two Senate subcommittees she leads and got briefed by policy experts on her staff – and that was only part of her schedule.Every day is packed.But Hagan hasn’t written

Sherri Shepherd has removed the newborn baby boy she had via surrogate from her health insurance, claims estranged husband Lamar Sally. The TV writer opens up about the custody battle over Lamar Jr (or as he calls him ´LJ´) in a new interview with People Magazine. In the chat, Lamar says Sherri, 47, was enthusiastic about having the child until six months into the surrogate´s pregnancy and then everything changed. He told the publication: ´She said, "We´ll coparent. We´ll work it out." I never thought in a million years she would turn her back on LJ.´He went onto claim that his estranged wife

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

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.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

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

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

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
