Obama describes a happy, thriving America
to veterans, who know better

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 8/27/2014 9:41:21 AM

President Obama is enduring an awful summer of domestic troubles, foreign tragedies and a lost national narrative that´s put him on the defensive. He´ll try to recapture control of the country´s political dialogue next month by igniting an emotional controversy over legalizing illegal aliens. But Tuesday the Democrat was in Charlotte to describe to American Legion members an exotic foreign land where November voters should be delighted to keep his party members in office. [Snip] We’ve gathered some excerpts with our comments in italics to provide a flavor of the alien land this president sees through his bullet-proof windows.

These aren´t lies, these are the rantings of someone that is certifiably insane. There´s not a single truth in these ramblings, just fodder for the Useless Media to reprint and swoon over.

It must be hard to believe someone reading a teleprompter with another person´s words stuffed into it. Obama has more balls than a brass monkey speaking to this group of ´real´ Americans when he let their friends die in VA hospitals. I don´t know how they sat still to listen to Obama´s pablum and not stand and walk out.

Seeking to change the ISIS narrative from "we have no strategy" to "we can do this," President Obama visited the headquarters of CENTCOM and Special Ops in Florida Wednesday and said: "I´m not here to give a long speech." (It was 2,700 words in length.) Once again, the commander-in-chief placed great emphasis for his immediate and global audiences on what he is not going to do: "As your Commander-in-Chief, I will not commit you and the rest of our Armed Forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq."

9 Top Questions for the

The long-awaited House Select Committee on Benghazi begins its historic open hearings today. The chair is Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a no-nonsense former federal and state prosecutor now in his second House term. The 50-year-old Gowdy´s challenges include herding GOP colleagues in a coherent investigative direction while combating the anticipated pre-election obfuscations and complaints of Democrats eager to protect President Obama and his wannabe successor Hillary Clinton. But the committee´s most important duty is ferreting out credible answers to thousands of questions about the deadly night of 9/11/12.

Good afternoon, and welcome to the White House. More than four decades ago, in early 1970, an American squad in Vietnam set out on patrol. They marched down a trail, past a rice paddy. Shots rang out and splintered the bamboo above their heads. The lead soldier tripped a wire -- a booby trap. A grenade rolled toward the feet of a 20-year-old machine gunner. The pin was pulled, and that grenade would explode at any moment. A few years earlier, on the other side of the country, deep in the jungle, a small group of Americans were crouched on

Sowing distrust and discord among Americans has served Barack Obama well politically during his 68 months in office. But now as the former community organizer faces ISIS and the worst foreign policy crisis of his ineffective presidential tenure, that distrust and division has circled around to bite its master. After his nationally-televised address Wednesday and a tepid Friday fundraiser talk justifying his belated actions, a new poll reveals that a large majority of Americans says it lacks any confidence he can accomplish his stated goals of beating the brutal new terror group.

Obama: Today´s terrorist

President Obama´s weekly remarks: As Commander in Chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people. And I’ve made it clear that those who threaten the United States will find no safe haven. Thanks to our military and counter-terrorism professionals, we took out Osama bin Laden, much of al Qaeda’s leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and leaders of al Qaeda affiliates in Yemen and Somalia. We’ve prevented terrorist attacks, saved American lives and made our homeland more secure. Today, the terrorist threat is more diffuse, from al Qaeda affiliates and other extremists—like ISIL in Syria and Iraq.

Finally! Barack Obama spoke like a president Wednesday night. In his long overdue national address to Americans on the terrorist threat of ISIS, he spoke with clear purpose, well-crafted phrases and reasoning that made sense to attentive ears. He listed specific actions to degrade and destroy these masked murderers. He looked firm, resolute and determined to address this foreign threat that has frightened his countrymen. [Snip] Unfortunately, these 1,985 well-spoken words of Obama’s come in the context of a presidency that’s been degraded and virtually destroyed by his own actions -- and inactions.

President Obama was not trying to be funny when he informed NBC´s newest TV host that the presidency involves an element of theater. No kidding, Barack. But it came out hilariously from the guy who gave his 2008 nomination acceptance speech with a backdrop of fake Greek columns -- in Denver. [Snip] “Part of this job," Obama told Chuck Todd, "is also the theater of it. Well, it´s not something that always comes naturally to me." (Nationwide laughter.) Obama´s entire presidency -- every one of the 2,963,520 minutes of it -- has been about show biz.

The fact that Barack Obama is still fundraising at a record pace nearly two years after his final legal election isn´t surprising. Nor that his people are doing it while the boss traveled abroad dominating TV news through predictable photo-ops with other NATO leaders. All while ISIS continues its appalling slaughter in Iraq and Syria and Russia´s Putin prolongs his armed absorption of Ukraine. After all, no Democrat candidate in their left mind who´s interested in actually competing come Nov. 4 wants to be seen anywhere near this guy.

Vice President Joe Biden gives President Obama´s weekly remarks: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Joe Biden, I’m filling in for President Obama, while he addresses the NATO summit in Wales. When the President and I took office in January of 2009, this nation was in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the great depression. Our economy had plummeted at a rate of 8% in a single quarter — part of the fastest economic decline any time in the last half century. Millions of families were falling underwater on their homes and threatened with foreclosure. The iconic American automobile industry was under siege.

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago.
