Obama’s herky-jerky leadership
Washington Post, by Ruth Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/2/2014 10:39:31 PM

The word of the day is herky-jerky, which is a polite way of saying erratic. And which, I regret to report, is a fitting description of President Obama’s handling of immigration. And, I regret even more, a metaphor for his stumbling stewardship. o recap and add perspective: The country’s immigration policy is broken, with 11 million undocumented immigrants forced to live in the shadows. That this situation endures is the fault of House Republicans who, captive to a gerrymandered, cable-inflamed populace that greets every reasonable solution with cries of “amnesty,” have rejected any comprehensive solution. This recalcitrance may be rational,

Once again we are faced with a criticism of BO´s leadership but not his policies. His hard left agenda is fine, if only he would get around to implementing it.

No thanks, the stuff he did get around to in the first couple years did so much damage that most don´t want any more "accomplished", thank you.

Also, these are ILLEGAL aliens. They came to the country illegally. They are staying in the country illegally. They are working in the country illegally. They are raising kids and using our social systems illegally. They are NOT citizens and do NOT have the rights of citizens.

And HERE is why Republicans don´t want a deal about immigration. The absolute first step for immigration reform is to stem the influx of people coming here illegally. This president has made it clear he has no interest in doing that. In fact he is ignoring existing laws to control illegal immigration. What gives opponents any hope he would obey new laws he didn´t like. This is a lawless president and people know it. So creating a "path to citizenship" is a waste of time until we know the president will STAY ON THE PATH.

Liberals want BO to act outside the bounds of law but gnash their teeth when held accountable for their actions. It is impossible to negotiate with anarchists. They don´t believe in obeying rules. This is the fundamental change BO has wrought. A government unbound by law and unaccountable.

The country’s immigration policy is broken, ...is the fault of House Republicans who... have rejected any comprehensive solution.

Ruth lied there. Republicans have been screaming to close the borders, to enforce current immigration laws already on the books, to deport new immigrants, to refuse illegals welfare, and to require immigrants to obey our laws. What is wrong with that "comprehensive solution"?

And "herky-jerky" and "erractic" trivialize this POTUS´ dangerous reign of error. She said she used those terms to be "awfully polite". Why be polite when we are under such a huge sword of Damocles?

But it has pushed the president into the uncomfortable position of claiming broad powers to impose fixes on his own

So when the Congress refuses to kowtow to Obama´s Leftist agenda, POTUS is supposed to do an end-run around Congress with his pen and his phone? Is she serious?

Sometimes if everyone is mad at you, it is proof that you are doing your job. Sometimes, it’s a sign that you are simply messing up.

At least she got that one right.

Teams need a captain.

...except when the team isn´t the President who has one, but the other way around. It is the team running the show with Obama as the snake-oil salesman using taqqiya to sell his poison.

Decision-making is not coming from POTUS. It is coming from a shadow team of unnamed czars we did not elect. Valerie Jarrett is protector, advisor, mother, and POTUS. The Obamas go nowhere without her presence and do nothing without her imprimatur. Read "Blood Feud".

Ruth is upset with Obama for not being tough enough to do what the Left wants done. Couching her criticism in left-handed slaps at Obama, she is still blaming Republicans.

At this most explosive time, we need a leader, not a team of cocaine-addled, pot-smoking business-suited Mad Men
left over from the sixties good old days of Marxist dreamland.

FTA: ´´Yes, the border crisis exploded right after the president’s announcement (it has improved, but public opinion has not caught up to reality).´´

Another LIE that basically says we peasants don´t understand the wonderful job being done on the border by the Feds. Illegals and jihadists are still flowing across the border, but the Useless Media has lost interest and moved on to more important issues, like some homosexual playing football or every police department in the country is 100% racist.

Ruth, somewhere there´s a McDonalds that needs a burger flipper. Don´t tell them you have a journalists degree, that only tells them you couldn´t find a real job.

If ever one gets into a discussion about illegal immigration with a brain dead liberal, and they trot out the canard that our ´Immigration laws are broken´, remind them that ignoring a law by lawbreakers is NOT proof that a law is broken. To emphasize that, replace the word ´immigration´ with the word "murder". Lotsa people ignore that law, does that mean it is broken and needs to be ´fixed´?

The Obama gang is being pulled in opposite directions. They do not want to attack their allies, but that just doesn´t fly. The result is a split personality presidency and leadership.

The herky-jerky action is the result of people pulling the puttet´s strings too hard. Trying to get this lazy, shiftless bag of wind to do anything but play golf has got to be frustrating. When the witches coven that is the democratic leadership chose a figurehead, they couldn´t have done a worse job. Obama makes them and himself look worse every day.

It´s not leadership, it´s a NASCAR race where none of the cars has a steering wheel.

Fence-jumper makes it

WASHINGTON — A man jumped over the fence of the White House on Friday and made it through the front door before officers managed to apprehend him, just minutes after President Barack Obama had departed, the Secret Service said. The intruder sprinted toward the White House after leaping over the fence and ignored commands from officers to stop, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. He was ultimately apprehended just inside the North Portico doors, the grand, columned entrance that looks out over Pennsylvania Ave. Donovan said the man appeared to be unarmed to officers who spotted him jumping the fence,

HOUSTON, Texas -- On Friday Texas´ Attorney General Greg Abbott and State Senator Wendy Davis -- both gubernatorial candidates -- debated in the state´s Rio Grande Valley. During the course of the debate, the issue of education came up. After hearing what Abbott had to say, a defensive Davis spoke when she was not supposed to and even interrupted a moderator multiple times--despite being told that it was not her turn to speak.

It should come as no surprise when movies dovetail with the wider social conversation. But this week, the collision is occurring with particularly crystallizing force. To wit: The arrival of a Liam Neeson movie isn’t exactly news, although his new one, “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” is notable on several counts. For one thing, it marks the return of Neeson to the kind of substantive, mature roles his fans have craved while he’s been making science-fiction fantasies and franchise installments. As New York detective Matt Scudder, Neeson settles easily into a role that calls for equal parts muscular brawn and

Interpreting the Islamic State’s jihadi logic

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

The United States has made the same mistake in evaluating fighters from the Islamic State that it did in Vietnam — underestimating the enemy’s will, according to James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Clapper’s comments came in a telephone interview Wednesday, in which he summarized the elements of a new National Intelligence Strategy released this week. Clapper also answered some broader questions about intelligence issues confronting the country. Asked whether the intelligence community had succeeded in its goal of providing “anticipatory intelligence” about the extremist movement in Syria and Iraq that has declared itself the Islamic State, Clapper said

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

Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year. Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go-to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight. Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.

Weeks before the State Department assured Americans that things were operating “normally” at its consulate in the Kurdish capital of Erbil in August, concerned procurement officials were quietly saying the advance of militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, meant the government needed to shell out tens of millions of dollars to counter a “rapidly deteriorating” security situation. On a no-bid basis, the State Department nearly doubled the size of a task order to defense contractor Triple Canopy, which had been hired to train Iraqi security forces but was asked to now perform diplomatic security and

Apple announced on Wednesday night that it would no longer unlock encrypted iPhones or iPads for police in many circumstances, taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user data. The move, enacted with the publication of a new privacy policy tied to the release of Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 8, amounts to an engineering solution to a legal dilemma: Rather than refuse legally binding court orders, Apple has reworked its latest encryption in a way that makes it all but impossible for

The Obama administration quietly has been forcing new gun buyers to declare their race and ethnicity, a policy change that critics say provides little law enforcement value while creating the risk of privacy intrusions and racial profiling. With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not. Then a buyer must check his or her race: Indian, Asian, black, Pacific Islander or white. The

(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.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

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

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.
