It’s Here! 9-10-11 – The End Of The Beginning

Update: Obama’s assault on the American people is on tonight. What is this about? Well it’s much worse than suggested by this Open thread: President to bomb enemies of man he wanted to bomb last year. For years Democrats and all the left denounced the Iraq War of Bush II as “war for oil”. For Barack Obama this is “war (or Obama’s phony version) for votes” “war (or Obama’s phony version) to save himself from what is coming in November”.

This morning on an MESSYNBC Obama rally disguised as a talk show, Chuck Todd said that Democrats’ internal polls showed their candidates dropping 6-9 percentage points when Obama went golfing after speaking about Foley’s murder. That’s what tonight is about. It’s a salvage operation but instead of pirate gold they will try to salvage the bones of pirate Obama.

Part of the Obama speech will be a performance to come off as tough. Obama will say he will bomb and bomb ISIS (he calls them ISIL because he doesn’t like the Syria reminder) “wherever they exist“. Twitchy asks if that means he will bomb Minnesota Mosques.

As noted in our comments section the New York Times for years held back the truth about Iraq from the American public in order to protect Barack Obama. Tonight, Jay Carney who recently evacuated the White House spokesman position will be an impartial “analyst” for CNN. Big Media will do all to salvage Obama’s Titanic mess.

We’ll have more tonight, in the comments.

——————————————————————————————

What is the state of the national political scene? Today is the last day of primaries and the eve of Barack Obama assaulting the nation with televised inanities and lies only the most luridly stupid will believe.

Tonight we will watch the primary returns from those voting (Delaware, Rhode Island, Massachusetts) but especially the votes from New York and New Hampshire for more clues about November. The clues are already piled up high like dumped from a box pieces of a double jumbo puzzle. Politico dumps the puzzle pieces:

Gallup: Why Dems should worry

The Gallup poll found 14 percent of Americans approve of how the legislative branch is handling its job, the lowest approval rating two months before elections that the poll has measured since 1974.

“Americans indicate that these negative attitudes will increase their probability of voting this fall, and history suggests it is more likely that Democrats than Republicans will suffer as a result, given Democratic control of the White House,” the polling firm wrote.

Blame Barack you dumb-asses. You support Obama and now you must suffer and die.

Another clue. Barack Obama is the problem:

Poll: Majority say President Obama a failure

A majority of voters believe Barack Obama’s presidency has been a failure, a new poll says.

According to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Tuesday, 52 percent of Americans say Obama’s presidency has been a failure, compared with 42 percent who believe it has been a success. Thirty-nine percent believe strongly that his presidency is a failure, just 3 points below his total success score.

Another Politico clue:

Rothenberg: ‘Substantial’ GOP wave

Political analyst Stu Rothenberg sees a wave election coming for Senate Republicans in November.

In a Roll Call column published Monday, the electoral expert said he is expecting Republicans to gain at least seven seats in the Senate and earn a November victory more dramatic than several pollsters have suggested.

I am now expecting a substantial Republican Senate wave in November, with a net gain of at least seven seats,” he said. “But I wouldn’t be shocked by a larger gain.” [snip]

“The combination of an unpopular president and a midterm election (indeed, a second midterm) can produce disastrous results for the president’s party,” he later added, a reference to President Barack Obama’s sagging approval numbers throughout the summer.

Rothenberg is not alone. Although most of the vote counters in D.C. have (as recently as a week ago) mocked the idea of a Republican wave in November they all project the likelihood of Republican control of both houses of congress. They all blame Obama for the dire condition of the Obama Dimocratic Party.

The clues are piled up but we will get more tonight. We know the economy won’t save Obama’s Dimocrats. We’ll get insight to the left versus center fight in the Obama Dimocratic Party via New York. In New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is challenged from the left by DailyKook law professor Zephyr Teachout who has no money and no endorsements (due to threats and intimidation from Cuomo and leftist icon Bill DeBlasio). Cuomo must also worry because his lieutenant governor running mate nominee might lose to leftist law professor Tim Wu who is endorsed by the New York Times (for many in the New York left an endorsement by the Times is gospel).

This is a race in which we wish every candidate would lose. Hillary Clinton robocalls in support of Cuomo. But Cuomo’s treatment of the Teachout loon reminds us of Barack Obama’s snub of Hillary in the U.S. Senate. Take a look at Cuomo and DeBlasio snub Teachout and see why we don’t want Cuomo to win even though he will, absent a miracle:



Disgusting. It is also reprehensible that Cuomo refused to debate at all. May they all lose. A low vote total for Cuomo will be a loss for Cuomo and a slap in the wrist for his obnoxious unaccounted for behavior.

In New Hampshire we’ll look to Scott Brown’s vote totals too. But here the question will be to what extent Brown solidifies Republican support after his win tonight. If Brown unites the Republicans quickly he can then make a play for independents. Soon enough we will see if New Hampshire will be another “unexpected” Republican win in November.

In Massachusetts Scott Brown’s vanquished opponent Martha Coakley better win big or she might lose to her strong Republican opponent Charlie Baker. Baker ran and lost to Governor Deval Patrick. These days Deval Patrick is the latest proposed Hillary Clinton 2016 opponent. Every so often Deval Patrick gets out of Barack Obama’s ass and attacks Hillary in the type of slimy way only a close ally of Obama is capable of. Go to Hell Deval Patrick!

Daval Patrick and many Obama acolytes still inject themselves in the morning with Hopium. But have the “dreamers” quit and woken from their Hopium drunk? Will Hopium addled “dreamers” save Obama and Obama Dimocrats this November??? Some Hopium sniffers are, these many years too late, bowing at the altar of Big Pink with their lace mantillas on reciting our catechism:

Obama cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his foes. Obama cannot be trusted.

Here’s Ruben Navarrette of CNN rewriting what we have written for so many years:

San Diego (CNN) —

When it comes to immigration, Obama has a long trail of half-truths and broken promises. In July 2008, the presidential candidate told the National Council of La Raza that, if elected, he would make the issue a top priority and address it within the first 100 days. That didn’t happen.

White House officials then moved the goal line to, well, the first term. That didn’t happen either.

From 2009 to 2011, Obama told supporters that he couldn’t curb deportations because he was “not a king.”

Yet, in 2012, eager to re-engage Hispanic voters for his reelection, Obama summoned his inner monarch when he unveiled “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” which gives undocumented young people a temporary reprieve from deportation and work permits.

In 2013, Obama did another about-face and returned to his rhetoric about how he couldn’t act alone to stop deportations. [snip]

Now, we’re in another election year, and Obama is back to cynically using the promise of immigration reform to get Latino voters to turn out. He dangles it like a carrot in front of a donkey pulling a cart. [snip]

Latinos should be furious at Obama’s betrayal. But they should save some anger for themselves for believing the lies.

As for Obama, he continues to insult Latinos with more blame-shifting and double talk.

Latino carts chasing the donkey carrot. Anyone who believed Barack Obama ever is an ass. No pity, just contempt from us for this level of stupidity from these dumb-ass “dreamers”.

Anyone who believed Barack Obama deserves all the insults and snubs from Obama they get. Slap them in the face Barack! They’re losers in desperate need of kicks to the face, hammers to the head, and punches to the kidneys. Sic ’em dog Barack. Make them rue the day they voted for you as we sit back and laugh as they get what they deserve.

Some dreamers are going a bit beyond self-abasement and self-abuse voting. Some are wondering “What’s the matter with us?”:

Obama Broke His Promise to Latinos

Why are we still supporting him?

Easy answer: ’cause you’re stupid you dumb-asses. You deserve all the misery you get.

Latino Obama supporters have not learned much. Have other Americans learned? Will November be a massive rejection of Obama and Obama supporters at the polls?

Tonight, on 9/9/14 we have the primaries to entertain us. Tomorrow on 9/10/14 we have Barack Obama to torture us. Next up on 9/11/14 we have the anniversary of the Muslim extremist attacks on the United States to remind us of what is at stake.

We’re at the beginning of the end of Obama.

  1. http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/09/politics/cnn-poll-congress/index.html?hpt=po_c1

    Washington (CNN) — Eight weeks before the midterm elections, a new CNN/ORC International poll shows that voters in key geographic regions favor Republican candidates heading into November, highlighting significant challenges for Democrats trying to protect half a dozen vulnerable Senate seats and ultimately control of the chamber.

    Equally concerning for Democrats is that the GOP has a 15-point advantage with independent voters on the generic ballot, and Republicans have an edge at this point in supporter enthusiasm.

    While Republicans are all but assured of maintaining a healthy majority in the House, the GOP needs a net gain of six seats to control the Senate and its committees that oversee the Obama administration. Should the GOP control Capitol Hill next year, it would be positioned to direct the legislative agenda and influence President Barack Obama’s final two years in office.

  2. What a dumb ass:

    http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/09/after-obamas-punt-maybe-latinos-should-sit-election-out-110728_Page2.html

    Lie to me once, shame on you. Lie to me five times, what do you expect us to do? Obama and the Democrats who supported and encouraged him have little credibility among Latino voters. Obama may have done more to suppress the Latino vote through broken promises than any hostile action taken by the Republicans.
    [snip]

    As for our own plan of action? It’s hard for me to imagine many of us voting for Republicans, who have at times been downright hostile to immigrant communities. But maybe Latinos in places like Colorado, Florida, Arkansas and North Carolina — states with closely contested Senate or governor’s races — should sit this election out. Maybe only by paying a price at the polls will Democrats finally stop throwing us under the bus.

    “Maybe” she says. What a dumb ass.

  3. One more very interesting story just breaking:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2014/09/09/gallup-obama-drops-to-44-job-approval-among-latinos-lowest-level-since-last-year/

    Gallup: Obama drops to 44% job approval among Latinos, lowest level since last year [snip]

    As Phil Klein pointed out on Twitter, the newest job approval data among Latinos was collected between September 1 and September 7. Obama didn’t announce he was postponing executive amnesty until September 6. What are we to make of that? It could be, I suppose, that Obama’s support among Latinos fell so steeply on September 6 and 7 — down to the 30s, perhaps — that even that small sample was capable of dragging the entire week’s numbers down. In that case, O’s in deep, deep trouble; his numbers among Latinos in the coming week will presumably be gruesome. It could also be that O’s Latino support didn’t fall steeply on September 6 and 7, maybe because the news that he was delaying amnesty hadn’t penetrated widely yet. That’s also big trouble for O, as it means that Latinos are turning on him for reasons unrelated to immigration. What’s going to happen to his numbers this week when the full effect of the delay is added to that?

    My hunch, though, is that the new numbers incorporate more upset over the amnesty delay than would seem obvious based on the date. True, O didn’t announce the delay until the 6th, after most of the poll had been conducted, but it was already anticipated at that point that he’d postpone executive action until the fall. The LA Times ran a story about the strong possibility of a delay on August 29. Word was surely circulating among immigration activist groups before then that Obama might pull the plug, and that news just as surely ended up circulating more broadly in Latino communities. The question is, if his numbers among Latinos continue to fall because of this, will he rethink and issue an executive order before the midterms anyway? The only race where Latino turnout might decide the outcome is Colorado, but every seat counts.

    Latinos are turning against Obama but Latino leaders continue to support Obama. Like labor, Jewish, black, and women groups (see Planed Parenthood’s latest betrayal of women on contraception) these leaders are betraying their constituents in order to protect Obama.

  4. Latino’s knew a good thing when they heavily supported Hillary in 2008…..They never really trusted Obama and relucanly ave him a chance…….

    They won’t make that mistake any longer………

  5. Repubs hostile to immigrants? Really? Not legal immigrants.

    It’s the unbelievable gall of LaRaza to expect America to become Big Mexico. We are freaking being invaded and expected to hand out cash and benefits like Halloween and Christmas combined. I am sure my father who fought with Patton in Europe would be turning in his grave. American citizenship should not be sold so cheaply when it has been paid for by the blood of so many.

    N.Y. women tired of ‘white people moving into the area’ force tenants out at gunpoint: report

    By Jessica Chasmar – The Washington Times – Tuesday, September 9, 2014
    Two Brooklyn women have been arrested after they robbed and intimidated three tenants out of their apartment at gunpoint, then squatted in the usurped home, because they were reportedly fed up with white people moving to the area.

    Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 23, knocked on the door of an apartment building in Flatbush at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday and held two men and a woman at gunpoint demanding they move out or be killed, police said, the New York Daily News reported.

    PHOTOS: Hand cannons: The world’s most powerful handguns

    The women then stole $800, an iPhone and personal information from the tenants and squatted in the apartment for two nights, a law enforcement source told the Daily News.

    The police source added the tenants may have been targeted because of their race, as one of the suspects told police she didn’t like “that white people were moving into the area.”

We will love the Muslim Brotherhood, Mirandize all al Qaeda suspects, ally ourselves with Iraq, abandon Israel, and screw the middle class.

    MRC Study: TV Buries the Bad News on Obama’s Collapsing Polls

    It’s no secret that television news has long been addicted to public opinion polls; decades ago, all three broadcast networks decided to partner with an influential newspaper (ABC News with the Washington Post; CBS News with the New York Times; and NBC News with the Wall Street Journal) to sponsor their own regular surveys for use in their political coverage.

    That’s why it’s so extraordinary that polling news has practically vanished from the Big Three evening newscasts in 2014 as President Obama’s approval ratings have tumbled and the public opposes defining administration policies like ObamaCare. Just last Thursday, for example, Gallup found Obama’s approval rating at a record low of 38 percent, yet none of the three broadcast networks bothered to mention this on their evening or morning newscasts.

    Such coverage is in stunning contrast to how those same newscasts relentlessly emphasized polls showing bad news for George W. Bush during the same phase of his presidency. Media Research Center analysts reviewed every reference on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts to public opinion polls from January 1 through August 31, 2014, and from the same time period in 2006. Eight years ago, the networks aired 124 evening news reports which cited public opinion polls about either President Bush’s overall approval rating or his handling of specific policies. In 2014, those same broadcasts produced only nine reports which mentioned public opinion surveys related to President Obama.

    In Bush’s case, the networks routinely highlighted his falling approval ratings to illustrate his political weakness, and regularly cited polling data showing public disapproval of policies such as the Iraq war. This year, even as President Obama has suffered his own political meltdown, the networks have spared him from such coverage.

    Presidential Job Approval: This year, the three broadcast networks have conducted 15 polls asking people to rate Barack Obama’s performance as President; 13 of those showed at least 50% of the public now disapproving of how Obama is handling his job. Yet the Big Three evening newscasts have essentially ignored their own polls, plus the dozens of others conducted by news organizations and universities that are commonly cited in routine political coverage.

    So far this year, there have been only two citations on an evening newscast of President Obama’s national job approval rating. “Obama has the lowest average approval rating of any President after five years in office,” correspondent Jon Karl announced on the January 28 edition of ABC’s World News. Seven months later on the August 31 edition of the CBS Evening News — a Sunday evening on a holiday weekend — political director John Dickerson opined that Democrats are facing a tough midterm election because the President’s “approval rating is just above 40%.”

    For its part, the NBC Nightly News has failed to report Obama’s overall approval rating during the first eight months of 2014, despite having conducted five nationwide polls on the subject. [snip]

    In contrast, the broadcast networks conducted 23 different polls during the first eight months of 2006 that asked respondents to rank President Bush’s job approval. But the evening newscasts referred to Bush’s national job approval rating 52 times between January 1 and August 31 of that year, citing their own polls and surveys conducted by other organizations, as well as general characterizations of how the public regarded Bush’s presidency.

    During the first eight months of 2006, network journalists variously described President Bush’s poll numbers as “sagging,” “sinking,” “falling,” “plummeting,” “grounded,” “mired,” “battered,” “rock bottom,” at “stunning lows” and “stuck at an all-time low.” The video embedded below shows just a small percentage of this coverage: [snip]

    This year, President Obama has faced no such coverage — no drumbeat of dour adjectives to describe his low approval ratings, and no obnoxious questions from network correspondents pleading for the President to participate in the drafting of his own political obituary.

    Handling of specific policy areas: So far in 2014, only four evening news reports have mentioned how the public rated President Obama’s handling of specific issues or policy areas. [snip]

    But both ABC and CBS on January 29 noted how a majority supported Obama’s position on increasing the minimum wage. [snip]

    During the corresponding time period in the Bush presidency, the networks mentioned the public’s rating of how his administration was handling specific policies in 90 evening news stories. On 63 occasions (70% of the time), the networks cited polling data that showed the President on the wrong side of public opinion on issues ranging from universal health care, the Dubai ports deal, embryonic stem cell research, immigration, gas prices, the economy and his administration’s handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. [snip]

    Iraq vs. ObamaCare: Undoubtedly, the war in Iraq was the initiative most associated with George W. Bush’s presidency, so it’s no surprise that the networks talked about public opinion regarding Iraq more than any other specific policy area. From January 1 through August 31, 2006, evening news correspondents mentioned polls about the President’s Iraq policy in 33 stories, all making the point that the public had rejected Bush’s approach.

    “Every poll shows public support for the war is slipping,” CBS anchor Bob Schieffer intoned on March 20, 2006. “Everything President Bush says and does is seen through the filter of Iraq, and the American people are judging it a failure,”ABC’s George Stephanopoulos agreed on May 16 of that year, underscoring how ABC’s own poll showed “59% call the war in Iraq a mistake.” [snip]

    The policy initiative most associated with President Obama is his 2010 health care law, yet not one of the networks have cited any polling this year to show the public’s continued disapproval. In late April, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found a ten-point gap between those who approved of the law (36%) and those who disapproved of it (46%), but the NBC Nightly News did not mention those findings. [snip]

    In May, a CBS News poll found an even bigger majority (54%) in opposition, vs. just 41% who supported the law, but the CBS Evening News was silent. Since then, polls sponsored by Fox News, CNN, Gallup, Quinnipiac and Bloomberg have all found majorities of between 52% and 59% rejecting the health care law, yet none of these polls have been mentioned on any of the three network evening newscasts.

    As the public has soured on Barack Obama’s presidency, the media are no longer exhibiting the embarrassing, thrill-up-their-leg Obamamania that defined their coverage of the 2008 campaign and much of the President’s first term.

    But that doesn’t mean that journalists at the Big Three are not skewing the media environment in Obama’s favor. Just as the networks have downplayed or ignored Obama scandals that would have been big news during a Republican administration, reporters are quietly aiding the President by essentially ignoring scores of polls showing how he’s lost the public’s support.

  9. Admin…FYI…when i clicked on comments a chinese website came up…i hit back and then comments again and you came up…just want you to know in case the troublemakers are making mischief again…anyone else run into this?

  10. Zephyr Rain Teachout (yes, that is her name) is trouncing Cuomo at 64.7% to 30.7%. Unfortunately for her that is with only 0.2% of the vote in. 🙂

  11. Martha Coakley not even near 50% of the vote in MA. She’s at 42.5% with 40.7 of the vote in.

    Scott Brown of New Hampshire declared winner already. He’s should come in over 50%.

  12. Cuomo not laughing. With 11.7% of the vote Cuomo has 54.4% to 42.2 If this is anywhere near the results tonight Cuomo is wounded.

  13. Coakley wins with only 42% of the vote.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/09/2014-primary-election-martha-coakley-massachusetts-110793.html?hp=l1_b3

    Although Coakley maintained a lead as returns poured in, most polls had predicted a runaway margin. Her narrow win is certain to revive memories of her late-campaign fade against Republican Scott Brown in a 2010 Senate special election — and some Democratic strategists worried that a weak finish in the primary could knock Coakley off her frontrunner footing heading into the general.

    The fall race is a redemption tour of sorts for both candidates. Coakley has worked to rebuild her reputation after her dramatic collapse against Brown that sank a Democratic supermajority in the Senate. The same year, Baker lost what many considered a winnable gubernatorial race against Gov. Deval Patrick, whose popularity had sunk amid state and national economic woes.

    Polls have generally shown Coakley edging Baker in a head-to-head matchup, but three independents in the race — Jeff McCormick, Evan Falchuk and Scott Lively — could play an important role in November if the contest tightens.

    Baker, a moderate who supports abortion rights and gay marriage, heads into the general election campaign with a huge cash advantage. He finished August with $1.2 million in the bank, compared to Coakley’s $197,000. Without a serious primary challenge, Baker was able to stockpile cash while Coakley was forced to spend to counter attacks from her primary rivals.

    Baker also got an early assist from the Republican Governors Association, which delivered $1.25 million to a super PAC supporting him. The Commonwealth Future PAC then spent the funds on two television ads produced by Mentzer Media that went on the air before Labor Day. One ad hailed Baker’s executive experience, and the other slammed Coakley for being open to raising the state gas tax.

    Grossman and Berwick warned in the final weeks of the primary that Coakley seemed to be playing it safe, contending that her plans and positions lacked specificity and that her measured tone could make her vulnerable to Baker.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his running mate survived Democratic primary challenges on Tuesday, beating back two prominent progressive critics by closer-than-expected margins, according to early returns.

    The Associated Press called both races with 41 percent of precincts reporting. In the governor’s race, Cuomo led Fordham Law School professor Zephyr Teachout, 61 percent to 35 percent.[snip]

    Though both Cuomo and Hochul prevailed, the campaign revealed discontent among liberals with the at-times centrist governing style of the first-term chief executive, who could have future national ambitions. Cuomo was also beaten up over a pending federal investigation into the disbanding of his anti-corruption commission earlier this year.

  15. The MSM may not be identifying the foibles that fluffy is the master of, but Business Insider is! And for that I say HOORAH!!

    BUSTED: Obama Gets Caught Spinning His Most Embarrassing Statement About ISIS

    At least one prominent fact-checking organization is calling out President Barack Obama for falsely claiming he “wasn’t specifically referring to” Islamic State militants when he dismissed them as a “JV” team.

    During an interview on Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama was pressed on the comments, published in a January profile in The New Yorker. In the piece, Obama was asked about the jihadist militants who had just captured Fallujah, Iraq. He replied: “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”

    Obama told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd that he was speaking broadly at the time and not specifically about the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, which has recently killed two American journalists and is threatening still more violence.

    “Keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL. I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally,” Obama said, according to an NBC transcript. “And I was very specific at that time. What I said was, not every regional terrorist organization is automatically a threat to us that would call for a major offensive.”

    But Politifact, a leading fact-checking organization, subsequently rated Obama’s recollection as “false.” Politifact even reached out to the author of The New Yorker story to confirm the specific context of Obama’s quote: the capture of Fallujah just days before.

    “At the time, Islamic State (often referred to as by its acronyms ISIS or ISIL) was not a household name. It was often referred to as an Al Qaeda-linked group in press reports. But reports from the time clearly indicate that the group was responsible for taking over the city,” Politifact reported. “We rate the statement False.”

    In August, a White House spokesman similarly insisted Obama was talking about multiple groups in the New Yorker interview — not just the Islamic State. At the time, The Washington Post’s fact-checking service rated the administration’s spin with “Four Pinocchios.”

    And of course, while Chucky was wiping the man-juice off his chin, preezy was feeling bullet-proof as his MSM protector, aka NBC, continued to shield him from scrutiny with softball questions and no rebuttal or follow-up no matter how disingenuous the answer.

    Asshats.

    Who stir up the Raymond Chandler in me:

    “There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands’ necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.”

    ― Raymond Chandler, Red Wind: A Collection of Short Stories

  18. And here is a perfect description of Messiah Obama:

    He looked about as inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel food cake.”

    ― Raymond Chandler

  19. Mark Levin is as contemptous of the vile Guiterrez who promote serial lawbreakers as I am.

    Mark informs us that Gochie Gochie Gooo, wishes to be thought of as the rightful successor to Martin Luther King.

    Frankly, that historical connection eludes me.

    Here is an historical connection that works, in terms of who this low life really is:

    Antonio de Padua María Severino López de Santa Anna y Pérez de Lebrón, often known as Santa Anna or López de Santa Anna and sometimes called “the Napoleon of the West”, was a Mexican politician.

    So, the little prick has slaughtered the defenders of the Alamo, and at Goliah. Time for San Jascento.

    Whenever he appears on television, people should say, hey who is that masked man?

    Martin Luther King?

    Hell no, that’s Santa Anna.

  20. Wbboei, that’s a great line you quote from Raymond Chandler. 🙂 If he was alive Chandler could give up his crime novels and with his brutal honesty and vivid use of language make a first rate White House reporter.

  21. Forget his presidency, he’s damaging the country.

    Obama’s Politicking Is Damaging His Presidency
    On foreign policy and immigration, the president has prioritized short-term politics over sound policy. And it’s costing him badly in his final years in office.

    In the latest round of polls, President Obama’s approval ratings are lowest on the two issues that once were strengths—foreign policy and immigration. In this week’s ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 31 percent of Americans approved of his handling of immigration, an issue that he recently hoped to wield as a political weapon against the Republican Party. And the same survey showed his approval on international affairs at just 38 percent—the lowest point of his presidency and an 8-point drop from late July—even as he catered to the creeping isolationist sentiment in the country.

    To the White House, these numbers must come as an unwelcome surprise, given how transparently the president played politics on these issues at the expense of sound policy.

    On foreign policy, the president for far too long dismissed the threat ISIS posed in the face of glaring warnings from his own advisers. While leading Cabinet secretaries, from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to Attorney General Eric Holder, described ISIS as an “imminent threat” and “more frightening than anything,” Obama’s public tone was much more measured, even recently suggesting that containment of the jihadist group was an option. To this day, he still insists on ruling out ground troops, even as he struggles to explain how we can defeat the terrorist group’s base in Syria without a greater American military presence. And many military experts are also puzzled why Obama is publicly telegraphing his strategy when it doesn’t serve America’s interests.

    But to understand the disconnect between Obama and his advisers, you have to understand how politics drives so much of the administration’s decision-making. Obama’s passive public posture was a direct response to the public’s longstanding war weariness, and his insistence on a limited American military role in the fight is in reaction to what the polls still show today. For months, even as ISIS made territorial gains across Iraq, the public continued to oppose any military action there. It wasn’t until the gruesome beheading of two American journalists that opinion on military intervention began to shift markedly.

    Support for airstrikes in Syria has now more than doubled in the past year, with a whopping 71 percent supporting military action in Iraq. Nearly nine out of 10 Americans now view ISIS as a serious threat to American interests, with 59 percent viewing it as “very serious.” So the president has belatedly followed suit, and is now delivering a prime-time address Wednesday evening to outline a strategy. Such an address could have been delivered months ago, when the terrorist threat was first metastasizing and when he could have helped mobilize public opinion to the cause. The much-mocked phrase “leading from behind” isn’t really accurate; for the Obama administration, it’s leading where the public opinion of the moment takes them.

    Looking at the Obama administration’s foreign policy more broadly, it’s striking how much politics seeped into critical decision-making processes. In his memoir, Obama’s former Defense Secretary Robert Gates chided his old boss that “everything came across as politically calculated” from his time in the administration. [snip]

    Foreign policy and immigration are entirely separate issues, but the president’s handling of immigration is another example of how his administration has been hampered by an in-the-moment reading of public opinion over big-picture strategy. The White House has long been convinced that immigration is kryptonite for the Republican Party, with the issue dividing the GOP while giving Democrats the opportunity to lock in permanent support from Hispanic voters. In June, the president was so confident about his standing on the issue that he proudly declared he would act on his own, since the Republican-controlled House wouldn’t follow his lead. “If Congress won’t do their job, at least we can do ours,” he said.

    But immigration politics have never been the clear winner for Democrats that its supporters suggest—and now it’s shaping up to be one of their biggest vulnerabilities for this year’s midterms. [snip]

    Politically speaking, Democrats face similar internal divisions as Republicans. The party is hoping to consolidate gains with Hispanic voters, but it risks hitting record-low support with white voters if the administration acts unilaterally on immigration reform. It wasn’t long ago that Rahm Emanuel, in his role as Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman, recruited numerous Democratic candidates who were tough on border security to run for the House in 2006. As Obama’s former chief of staff, he counseled against pushing immigration reform in the first term, recognizing how potent the issue would be for white Democratic supporters in battleground districts. Those underlying politics haven’t changed much since then. And now, by backtracking on a crucial promise to Hispanic supporters, he risks losing some support from them—both for the midterms and potentially for 2016 as well. [snip]

    It shouldn’t have been news that outside of his base, the public has been growing weary of the administration’s penchant for unilateral executive actions, bypassing Congress on everything from altering his health care law to foreign policy. They should have realized that opposition to unilateral action on immigration wasn’t just limited to the hard-core Republican base, but a wider disaffected swath of the American public.

    Foreign policy and immigration offer recent case studies of how the White House badly misread the public mood, living in the politics of the moment instead of anticipating the politics of the future. They interpreted the public’s war-weariness as a mandate for inaction. With Obama maintaining largely the same inner circle from the beginning of his presidency, there’s undoubtedly an echo chamber effect at work as well—only hearing the advice he wants to hear, drowning out any internal dissent.

    For most successful presidents, politics is utilized as a tool by leaders to advance their favored policies. Understand the public mood, both from your supporters and detractors. Find areas of agreement to build bipartisan coalitions. President Bush, for instance, effectively used campaign-style strategies to win congressional support for authorizing the Iraq War. President Clinton forged an impressive bipartisan coalition to pass welfare reform.

    But for Obama, defeating Republicans seems to take priority over achieving clear policy objectives. For him, the name of the game is the game itself.

    As we always say when discussing strategy, look for where the puck will be not where it is.

  22. oh dear…

    http://nypost.com/2014/09/10/posh-golf-courses-turned-obama-away-over-labor-day/

    Several elite Westchester County golf courses turned down President Obama’s request to tee off on their links over Labor Day weekend, according to a broadcast report.

    Obama was turned down at Trump National Golf Club, the Winged Foot and Willow Ridge, among other high-end courses, club sources told WNBC, because the White House advance team gave them very short notice for a requested tee time on Saturday, Aug. 30.

    To accommodate the massive security team that follows any president, the clubs would have had to inconvenience many of their well-heeled golfers to get Obama a tee time and they didn’t want to do that, the NBC affiliate reported.

    snip

    The golf snub might have altered the president’s travel plans.

    snip

    (ahhhh)

    “He can sleep in his own bed, do a little work tomorrow, spend some time with his family and then travel back to New York tomorrow evening to attend a private event,” Earnest said then.

    Political analyst Dan Gerstein told WNBC that Obama’s low approval rating must have influenced the clubs’ decisions to turn down America’s duffer-in-chief.

    “I think he has lost that star quality he had in his first two years in office and in that 2008 campaign,” Gerstein said.

    ****************************

    whoa…that must have stung…

  23. I know a golf club in Palm Springs that has already blackballed the liar in chief should he ever apply to belong there.

    Given the way he plays the race card, I asked do they have black members now.

    The answer was yes, they are admitting one as we speak, to inoculate themselves against his whining and retaliation by his worshipers.

    In a sense, he is suffering the same fate as Nixon.

    When Nixon applied to purchase a fancy in Manhattan and the limousine turned him down.

    Well, it now appears that the boycott works both ways.

    Agreed.

    His fore was detective fiction.

    His hero would be a latter day Phillip Marlowe, by the name of Sharyl Attkisson.

    Who misses nothing and holds back nothing to reveal the banality of evil symbolized by Barack Obama, and his cabal.

    After all, the devil we know is the devil that does not frighten by seduces in the manner of Faust.

    But what would intrigue Chandler the most would be something Trey Gowdy said to big media.

    I am not trying to tell you how to do your jobs.

    I am not surprised that Obama is doing what he has done.

    I am not surprised that he told transparent lies to cover it up.

    I’M JUST SURPRISED THAT ANY OF YOU BOUGHT IT!

    Here is a great review of Henry Kissinger’s new book World Order written by – you guessed it – HRC herself:
    ———–
    Kissinger has great respect for Hillary and vice versa. That has been obvious ever since the time she emerged as a presidential candidate in 2007. I have not read his book, but it is my guess that it is an indictment of Obama, in which he holds her harmless.

  26. Breaking….President Obama authorises up to £15m of military education and training for the Iraqi and Kurdish governments

    Have we not been doing this for the last 10 years………and it has never worked, they all ran away….

  27. Admin: amid all the noise, this is a development is significant in terms of 2016.

    As usual, Politio misreads it.

    They are still apoplectic about last year’s shut down of government.

    In the final analysis, they and the rest of the political class are dedicated to only one thing:

    The endless cocktail line.

    Ted Cruz’s Chief of Staff Move to Campaign Team a Hopeful Sign

    By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | September 10th, 2014 at 02:34 PM | 8

    If Senator Cruz builds his likely Presidential campaign team just as he built his Senate office team, he may actually have a shot. The good news is that he has taken at least one step in that direction by having Chip Roy, his Senate Chief of Staff, step down from that post to focus more attention on the political side of the business.

    When Ted announced in December 2012 that Chip would be his Chief, I called it a “huge deal” writing,

    It signals Senator-Elect Ted Cruz is not going to Washington sell out the conviction he ran on, but actually, as we’ve all known, does believe in federalism, the tenth amendment, and limited government.

    The good news for all of us is that I was proven correct. First, the Cruz staff is known to be rock solid conservative – and it functions that way. Chip hired a number of people I know personally very well, and respect immensely. They are all people willing and prepared to challenge the establishment.

    I recall last year when Cruz was briefly criticized for holding a resolution on Multiple Sclerosis to review it. Heaven forbid he ask for time to double check whether this resolution made any wild claims of fact or demands for government spending. But here’s the best part – his Legislative Director who held it? She has MS herself and was delighted to hold it for review.

    Second, when Ted entered the Senate in January 2013, he hit the ground running, and even with a small, undermanned staff – he basically dominated the debate and took the establishment to school on every issue. Challenging Hagel – check. Stopping gun registration – check. Stopping amnesty – check. Fighting the funding of Obamacare – check.

    Senator Cruz accomplished these things with a Chief of Staff by his side who both were committed to a fight and not Washington niceties. Why? Because you have to be willing to tell all the establishment folks on the Hill that you are less concerned with cocktail parties than in stopping the erosion of liberty and stopping the largesse of big government.

    Chip did it while commuting from Austin, Texas to Washington – with his lovely wife and children back home after having been 10 months removed from Chemotherapy at MD Anderson.

    Now he’s going to focus on helping build the political team for Senator Cruz. There are miles to go on the path to 2016. But, if Ted Cruz wants to win – he must do so as an inspirational conservative. Taking Chip to the Presidential effort is a good first step of what will be many more needed to get the job done.

    This from the Politico a little while ago sums it up best.

    Cruz’s GOP Senate colleagues may be relieved to see Roy leave the Hill, given Roy’s public criticism of those who opposed Cruz’s hardball tactics last year that contributed to a government shutdown.

    God bless, Chip and God bless Senator Cruz.

  28. Breaking….President Obama authorises up to £15m of military education and training for the Iraqi and Kurdish governments
    ————-
    Ridiculous that they would even bother to announce this.

    It is so routine and so de minimus and so wasteful and so proven not to work.

    But when you have got nothing else to offer . . .

  29. Corporate media rabid to latch onto AP report that NFL head may have had tape in April. I’m calling them on it what I can.
    That Rice they will report on. The Susan Rice – off limits.

  30. In preparation for discussion during Obama’s word assault – After years of purposeful lies the New York Times is beginning to come clean about Obama/Iraq:

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/387580/nyt-baghdad-bureau-chief-obama-and-iraq-yup-he-ignored-all-problems-political-reasons

    NYT Baghdad Bureau Chief on Obama and Iraq: Yup, He Ignored All the Problems for Political Reasons

    The Baghdad-bureau chief for the New York Times since 2012, Tim Arango, was asked during an “Ask Me Anything” session on the forum Reddit what he thinks of the Obama administration’s Iraq policy. He said he doesn’t want to editorialize, but then offers an account of the facts that looks absolutely devastating for President Obama (but confirms the suspicion that the president simply didn’t want to deal with the situation). His answer (click to enlarge it):

    it’s not my job to rate the obama administrations actions in iraq. but i will tell you that after 2011 the administration basically ignored the country. and when officials spoke about what was happening there they were often ignorant of the reality. they did not want to see what was really happening because it conflicted with their narrative that they left iraq in reasonably good shape. In 2012 as violence was escalating i wrote a story, citing UN statistics, that showed how civilian deaths from attacks were rising. Tony Blinken, who was then Biden’s national security guy and a top iraq official, pushed back, even wrote a letter to the editor, saying that violence was near historic lows. that was not true. even after falluja fell to ISIS at the end of last year, the administration would push back on stories about maliki’s sectarian tendencies, saying they didn’t see it that way. so there was a concerted effort by the administration to not acknowledge the obvious until it became so apparent — with the fall of mosul — that iraq was collapsing.

    http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/2fu159/im_tim_arango_baghdad_bureau_chief_for_the_new/ckcrxcd

    As Iraq was collapsing the New York Times continued to help Obama deceive the public.

  31. Update: Obama’s assault on the American people is on tonight. What is this about? Well it’s much worse than suggested by this Open thread: President to bomb enemies of man he wanted to bomb last year. For years Democrats and all the left denounced the Iraq War of Bush II as “war for oil”. For Barack Obama this is “war (or Obama’s phony version) for votes” “war (or Obama’s phony version) to save himself from what is coming in November”.

    This morning on an MESSYNBC Obama rally disguised as a talk show, Chuck Todd said that Democrats’ internal polls showed their candidates dropping 6-9 percentage points when Obama went golfing after speaking about Foley’s murder. That’s what tonight is about. It’s a salvage operation but instead of pirate gold they will try to salvage the bones of pirate Obama.

    Part of the Obama speech will be a performance to come off as tough. Obama will say he will bomb and bomb ISIS (he calls them ISIL because he doesn’t like the Syria reminder) “wherever they exist“. Twitchy asks if that means he will bomb Minnesota Mosques.

    As noted in our comments section the New York Times for years held back the truth about Iraq from the American public in order to protect Barack Obama. Tonight, Jay Carney who recently evacuated the White House spokesman position will be an impartial “analyst” for CNN. Big Media will do all to salvage Obama’s Titanic mess.

    We’ll have more tonight, in the comments.

    ——————————————————————————————

  32. He’s still pronouncing it “pock-ist-an”. He’s trying to appear confident but you can see the fear.

    He begins by defending Islam as not represented by ISIL then saying ISIL is not really a state or anything.

  33. Obama is not announcing the return of the Nobel Peace Prize. He is instead declaring he will now put on a big hat and pretend he is Napoleon. Bush, er, Obama will lead a coalition of the willing to save Iraq.

  34. Hey, Obama said he’s got a strategy. He actually used the word “strategy”.

    It feels as if the speech is over already but Obama is still babbling on.

  35. Now Obama briefly mentions the Ukraine and says the U.S. can also beat Ebola. No kidding.

    He’s in his “inspirational” mode now. He’s trying to get that whisper in his voice that means so much to the DailyKooks. It’s Barack making love to the DailyKooks so they don’t hate him now that he will bomb, bomb, bomb – IN IRAQ!

    After the sweet wooing of the DailyKooks it is over.

  36. The White House has long been convinced that immigration is kryptonite for the Republican Party, with the issue dividing the GOP while giving Democrats the opportunity to lock in permanent support from Hispanic voters.

    Well, if that were true, he wouldn’t need to do it now for that reason, because the amnesty during Reagan’s term would have “locked in permanent support”.

  37. He started at 6:01 (my time). Only 1 minute late. Part of the reason I tuned in was to see how late he was going to be – I can’t believe he was so “early late”.

    He’s still pronouncing it “pock-ist-an”. That jumped out at me, too. Of course, he never pronounces other countries the way they are pronounced in their native languages.

    And I couldn’t stand him saying things like “my fellow Americans”, and “we as Americans”. He’s just not one of us. I’ll never believe he loves America.

  38. Southern Born, Obama opened the speech with his defense of Islam. That seems to be his paramount concern – that nobody think Islamic ideology and theocratic aspirations are behind any of the slaughters of recent generations and before.

  39. I wish they would do some follow up questions when they do these polls. Basically, I’d like to get a feel how much that .10 that believes Obama is doing enough about terrorism knows about current events, even about politics.

    The most recent Jessie Waters interviews I saw (when he goes around asking basic political questions of mostly young people, often college students), they didn’t even know who Hillary is (by seeing her photo). I couldn’t believe it. (they knew who Ellen is and Beyonce is)

  40. lol I knew from the first couple of words out of his mouth what he was about to say, and I yelled at the TV – “No! We’ve heard this for 13 years, don’t waste our time with more defense of Islam”!

    – like there’s really someone out there who thinks every Muslim is a terrorist! We get it, you love Islam. He should go move there, or at least to MN, and start telling the youth that Islam doesn’t equal terrorism. We’re really not the ones who need to keep hearing it.

  41. Kirsten Powers is bringing up that we left Iraq because Obama couldn’t get a status of forces agreement. Whenever I hear that, my first thought is always, “how hard did he try?”, because he does seem very lazy, and it seems hard for him to attend to things that don’t interest him (ie, don’t bring him immediate applause). Of course, it would have been someone else, not him, doing the negotiating, but I don’t trust he encouraged them to try again, or try harder.

  42. Do you think that if FOX NEWS keeps rehabilitating both George Bush Sr. and Bush Jr by next year they will be saying that those are the two best presidents our country has ever had.

  43. I hope Obama can’t sleep tonight, worried that we may have some kind of attack tomorrow. One night of worry out of 6 years, that’s not too much to ask, is it?

  44. Wow, Megyn Kelly (whom I basically like) finally said something nice about Hillary (telling Cruz that she had fought for Obama to have moderates fight in Syria). Cruz (and anyone on Fox) always makes sure to link Hillary to Obama for one reason – she may run for president.

  45. “President Obama said that NO religion condones killing innocents?”
    ****
    He’s correct, at least for Islam. They only kill infidels, apostates, and enemies of the true religion, those people aren’t innocents. This war blows hot and cold but it’s been going on for 1400 years.

  46. Geez, I think Hillary brings up and preemptively defends Obama as reflexively as Obama defends Islam. I miss the pre-Obama Hillary who wasn’t always making me think about him. I sure hope one day it stops – maybe if she becomes president she might stop….? Actually, maybe she won’t….

    From her review of Kissenger’s book:

    His analysis, despite some differences over specific policies, largely fits with the broad strategy behind the Obama administration’s effort over the past six years to build a global architecture of security and cooperation for the 21st century.

  47. This from Clown Carney is even funnier than Clown Obama:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/09/jay-carney-im-no-obama-shill-110839.html?hp=l3

    Jay Carney: I’m no Obama shill

    Former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney bristles at the question of whether – in his new role as a CNN contributor – he still speaks as though he’s at the briefing room podium.

    I don’t even know what that means,” he said in an interview. “Was I supposed to trash the President of the United States for taking action that any president would do when we’re faced with a threat like the Islamic State?”

  48. In his speech, Obama said a core principle of his presidency has been to protect America, to get those who threaten us. ha. It’s like when he denies saying things that were captured on video when he said them. He just says things, and must think we’re all idiots.

    ———-

    He’s correct, at least for Islam. They only kill infidels, apostates, and enemies of the true religion, those people aren’t innocents.

    lol really good point.

  49. From the “don’t say stupid stuff” department:

    http://www.wnd.com/2014/09/obama-isis-is-not-islamic/

    Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.

    He added, “And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaida’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”

    Maybe Obama has ISIL confused with ISIS.

  50. ISIL is a terrorist organization

    Wow, he said the “t word”.

    Maybe since Obama has engaged his brain and discovered that ISIS isn’t a “state”, we’re no longer in danger… because a group trying to create a caliphate aren’t a danger to us, if they’re not a state..

  51. Phew, I feel better. This must mean that he has sealed the border, and that ISIS is Juarez hasn’t come over the open border into El Paso.

    IMO, NO one is serious about our safety, if they aren’t fighting to get the border closed….

    From Obama’s speech:

    “I know many Americans are concerned about these threats. Tonight, I want you to know that the United States of America is meeting them with strength and resolve.”

  52. McCain was ripping into Carney on CNN. Get the impression he is not very fond of CNN’s new political senior contributor.

  53. More Carney the Clown on Hillary:

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/10/politics/carney-interview/index.html?c=&page=0

    CNN: We’re starting to see blind quotes from Hillary Clinton “aides” expressing criticism of Obama’s handling of Syria and Iraq. If she runs for president, how does Hillary balance the thornier parts of Obama’s record with her time in the administration?

    Carney: Obviously that’s something that she will figure out if she decides to run. She was Secretary of State for President Obama for four years and she understands that record will be part of what she runs on. Her time as Secretary of State is something she should be proud of, and the President’s record on foreign policy is something she is more likely to embrace than anything because she was a big part of it.

    Carney tries to save Obama by throwing Hillary in the ocean and giving her an anvil.

  54. Apologies for not staying up to blog last nights usual bucket of sick but that is exactly why……I could have pre-written it.

    What I expected is what we got…and as usual no one has a good thing to say about it.

    Someone really needs to show him the door……….

    Can’t imagine America taking to this at all.

  55. By the who did his makeup? the local funeral parlour?

    Weird eyebrows, bloodshot eyes, puffy..the whole scene was just icky.

  56. Also his left eye kept rolling back, and the left side of his mouth kept curling up. Slight stroke? Looked weird.

  57. Weird eyebrows, bloodshot eyes, puffy..the whole scene was just icky.
    ————–

    Prior bad acts, i.e. the usage of choom years ago

    Are not sufficient to prove he is still a user

    But his physical appearance,

    His incoherence, and-

    His absence from the job

    Like we see now in the fifth year of his imperious reign

    Are probable cause to test the son of a bitch for drug abuse.

    In fairness . . .

    Having a druggie as a golfing partner is acceptable

    Having a druggie as president is bad.

    But having a president who is under the influence on the job is unacceptable

    Except to big media half of whom are on the same stuff

    His defense: I am never on the job, ergo not to worry, be happy

    He stood at the podium, stared at the cameras defiantly, and affected the bearing of Caesar

    The speech he delivered had big media fainting in the aisles

    And when he finished the Periclean speech and left the podium he was heard to say

    Maybe there is something to that old saying, once common among trucking industry executives:

    “I can fool anyone for five (5) years.”

    With big media, useless cocksuckers that they are, there is no statute of limitations.

    Their complicity in all this is a matter of record

    Which they cannot escape–because it has damaged too many people

  58. Maybe thats why no-one can verify his whereabouts on the night of Benghazi…so drugged off his head they couldn’t raise him……

  59. We doubt the Obama “war for votes” speech last night will change any of this:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/09/10/fox-news-poll-10-pieces-bad-news-for-white-house/

    Fox News poll: 10 pieces of bad news for the White House

    There’s an avalanche of bad news for the Obama administration in the latest Fox News poll on foreign policy.

    American voters feel:

    – Barack Obama is weak and indecisive.

    – The U.S. is less respected since Obama became president.

    – The U.S. should do more to stop the Islamic extremist group ISIS.

    – Obama isn’t willing to do what it takes to defeat ISIS.

    – ISIS will try to attack the U.S. soon.

    – Embarrassed about Obama not having a strategy for dealing with ISIS.

    – Obama will try to “manage” ISIS rather than “defeat” it.

    The poll also finds:

    – For the first time, more voters than not feel the U.S. is less safe today than before 9/11.

    – Obama’s job approval is at record lows on Syria, Iraq and terrorism. (Obama’s overall job approval matches his all-time low.)

    – Most would tell Obama to kill extremists beheading Americans now, rather than caution him against overreacting.

    The new poll was released Wednesday, hours before President Obama’s prime-time address to the nation about ISIS.

    Here are the numbers behind the bullet points above: 59 percent of voters think the U.S. is less respected today than when Obama took office. That’s up 11 percentage points from 48 percent who felt that way last year — and up a significant 22 points from 37 percent in 2012.

    Among independents, 67 percent feel the U.S. is less respected. That’s a dramatic increase from 38 percent in 2012.

    By a 15-point margin, Democrats are more likely to say the U.S. is less respected (35 percent) since Obama took office. Just 20 percent of Democrats say the country is more respected today, a drop of 32 points from 52 percent who felt that way in 2012.

    Overall, 57 percent of voters think Obama is “weak and indecisive” on foreign policy, up from 48 percent last year. Twenty-three percent of Democrats and 62 percent of independents say he’s weak.

    People fear an attack is coming — yet don’t think the president will do what it takes to defeat ISIS. More than three-quarters of voters think ISIS is planning an attack on U.S. soil (77 percent) and about the same number say the U.S. should be doing more to stop ISIS (76 percent).

    Still, by a 54-39 percent margin, voters say Obama isn’t prepared to “do whatever it takes to defeat” ISIS, and a 55-percent majority feels embarrassed he doesn’t have a strategy to deal with the Islamic extremist group in Syria. About a third is reassured Obama is taking time to develop a strategy.

    Obama receives all-time low approval ratings for the job he’s doing on terrorism (38 approve-56 disapprove), Iraq (34 approve-59 disapprove) and Syria (27 approve-61 disapprove). The president’s overall foreign policy job rating remains deep underwater: 34 percent approve vs. 59 percent disapprove. His record-low 32 percent approval on foreign policy came in June 2014.

    The president’s overall job approval stands at 38 percent, which matches its all-time low. A record-high 56 percent of voters disapprove. Approval among Democrats stands at 73 percent, just 4 points higher than its record low. Same story among independents: 26 percent approve today — just 1 point higher than the all-time low among this group. And 39 percent of women approve, also matching a record low.

    The nation feels less secure. For the first time in 10 years, voters say the country is less safe today than it was before 9/11. A record-low 43 percent say the country is safer today, and a record-high 45 percent say the country is less safe. In 2010 voters said the country was safer by a 23-point margin. In 2004 it was 35 points. And as recently as March of this year, voters said the country was safer by a 10-point margin (49-39 percent).

    Obama has sent mixed messages on how he plans to handle ISIS. At one point he said the group should be destroyed, yet later he said it should be managed. Which do voters think he will try to do? By a 46-39 percent margin, more think Obama will manage rather than destroy ISIS. Democrats are more likely to think Obama will try to destroy ISIS, while Republicans and independents say he’ll manage the Islamic extremists.

    The new poll asks voters which message they would like to send to Obama about the Islamic extremists who are beheading Americans. Over half — 54 percent — would say “kill them now.” Nearly a third would caution “don’t overreact” (32 percent).

    Democrats would tell Obama “don’t overreact” (49 percent). Majorities of Republicans (70 percent) and independents (59 percent) say “kill them now.” Veterans and those currently serving in the military (62 percent) as well as non-military voters (53 percent) would advise “kill them now.”

    Voters disagree with the Justice Department’s decision to treat the murder of American journalist James Foley as a criminal case: 65 percent think the U.S. military should go after the extremists responsible, while just 14 percent agree it is the job of federal prosecutors.

    By nearly two-to-one voters think it will take boots on the ground to defeat ISIS (51 percent) rather than airstrikes alone (27 percent). Pluralities of independents (49 percent) and Democrats (42 percent), and a majority of Republicans (62 percent) think it will take U.S. ground troops to do the job.

    The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,000 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from September 7-9, 2014. The full poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.

    Michael Moore: Obama First Black President, ‘And That’s It’

    Wednesday, 10 Sep 2014 07:35 PM

    By Cathy Burke

    Liberal documentary filmmaker and iconoclast Michael Moore – who’s been tough on President Barack Obama in the past — eviscerates him in a new video interview, saying he’ll be remembered as the first black president — and “that’s it.”

    Moore unloaded while talking with The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto Film Festival, where Moore helped celebrate the 25th anniversary of “Roger & Me,” the award-winning movie that chronicles his attempts to connect with General Motors chairman Roger Smith to discuss GM layoffs in Flint, Mich.

    “He’s been a huge disappointment,” Moore says, noting that he once wrote the president to scold him for taking credit for saving Detroit.

    Obama “did not save Detroit,” he said, adding that he told the president in a letter, “You saved General Motors… Chrysler.”

    “Obama, sadly, has done many many good things but has been a huge disappointment,” Moore told the interviewer.

    Then, pretending to speak directly to the president, Moore pushed the knife a little deeper.

    “When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: ‘He was the first black president,'” Moore said.

    “Okay, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it. That’s it, Mr. Obama. A hundred years from now, ‘he was the first black American that got elected president.’ And that’s it.

    “Eight years of your life and that’s what people are got to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”

    Moore turned back to his interviewer, and remarked:

    “It’s on that level,” he said of his personal displeasure with the president’s tenure. “A big disappointment.”

    The political activist supported Obama in both of his presidential campaigns, but has broke with the Democrat over a range of issues, including Obamacare, NSA snooping, and drone strikes.

    …video clip is there..MM looks rough..but he looks right into the camera and tells O he is a big disappointment and will only remembered as being the first black Prez

  62. “Having a druggie as president is bad.”
    ****
    JFK was the most drugged President that we have had; barbiturates, opiates, amphetamines on top of adrenal insufficiency. The difference is that he had Bobby to keep thing going, Barry has Val and Ben.

  63. Forget my last message………

    Downing St has publicly overruled their own Foreign Secretary on airstrikes…….not ruling it out….Guess VJ was on the phone screaming.

    What a fuck up…..

  64. Given the pathology of this bastard, I worry that after under reacting to the terrorism problem for years, that now when reality calls his hand, he will overreact, and turn on the American People–just as Hitler turned on the German people when the war was lost. (Note: this is no arbitrary comparison, because the two of them suffer from the same pathology.) In this frightening scenario, two things are a given, and the rest is speculative. First, the American People are profoundly stupid when it comes to politics. Not for nothing did H.L. Mencken say that nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American People. The other given is the corruption of big media, which prevents them from bringing to justice a monster which they were instrumental in creating in 2008, and sustaining in 2012. They have over invested in him, and his dereliction is also theirs. Ditto his fate.

    True.

    However, it is my understanding:

    A. The drugs taken by JFK were: 1) prescribed by a doctor and 2) for “pain relief”

    B. The drugs Obama used/uses: 1) came from a pusher and 2) for “recreational” purposes

    If that is the case, then the Kennedy defense will not save Messiah Obama.

    His best bet is to tell big media that is they rat him out then he will rat them out.

  66. “If that is the case, then the Kennedy defense will not save Messiah Obama.”
    *****
    The biggest difference perhaps is the “delta” for impaired/unimpaired. For Obama it is miniscule, for JFK, huge, ie. Vienna vs Cuban missiles.

  67. GOP Sen. Roberts in fight of political career after bizarre twists shake up race
    snip It started when the Democratic candidate in the race, Chad Taylor, abruptly announced on Sept. 4 that he was dropping out without explanation. That left Greg Orman, a businessman running as an independent, as the only viable candidate to face off against Roberts.
    Speculation instantly swirled that with Taylor out of the picture, Orman could have a very real chance of unseating Roberts, and polls taken since the shakeup have backed that up.
    A Survey USA poll conducted between Aug. 20 and Aug. 23 initially showed Roberts with a 5-point lead over the two other candidates. But a new poll — taken after the Democrat sidelined himself — by the same outfit shows Orman leading Roberts by 1 point, making it a statistical dead heat.

  68. Obama’s “coalition of the willing” is not the only Bush W. echo:

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/gregorydjohnsen/obama-will-fight-isis-with-george-w-bushs-legal-theories#14ulm05


    Obama Will Fight ISIS With George W. Bush’s Legal Theories

    John Yoo: “Obama has adopted the same view of war powers as the Bush administration.” [snip]

    But by ordering the military into action without explicit congressional authorization, Obama is falling back, at least in part, on the same controversial legal theories of executive power that he once rejected.

    Not everyone is surprised by the presidential about-face. John Yoo, a former Bush administration lawyer and one of the primary architects of the “strong executive” theory of presidential power, told BuzzFeed News, “Obama has adopted the same view of war powers as the Bush administration.”

    In a preview of his speech on Sunday, Obama told Chuck Todd of NBC’s Meet the Press that he was “confident that I have the authorization that I need to protect the American people.” Obama repeated that same line in meetings with foreign policy pundits on Monday and again in meetings with congressional leaders on Tuesday. [snip]

    Among those doubters is Obama himself, or at least the pre-presidential version.

    In late 2007, as part of a candidate Q&A, Obama told Charlie Savage, “The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” And as Obama made clear in his Sunday appearance on Meet the Press, this is not the case in Iraq or Syria. “I want everybody to understand that we have not seen any immediate intelligence about threats to the homeland from ISIL. That’s not what this is about.”

    This is about prevention and preemption, exactly the sort of thing that candidate Obama said presidents were not authorized to do without congressional approval. But Congress seems to have little desire to vote on military action ahead of midterm elections in November, and, after last year’s confused approach to military strikes in Syria, Obama seems to have just as little interest in asking permission. Instead, whether out of expediency or outlook, he appears to have altered his views on constitutional power, and in doing so found himself relying on the same theories he once criticized. [snip]

    “This is precisely the logic of the current and planned use of force against [ISIS],” Jack Goldsmith, another former Bush administration lawyer and currently a professor at Harvard Law School, pointed out recently on Lawfare, a blog he co-founded.

    “What is remarkable,” Yoo told BuzzFeed News, “is not that Obama eventually had to exercise the powers of his predecessors to protect American national security, but that his party in Congress, and his allies in the media and the universities, have remained so silent about it.” [snip]

    But for all the maneuvering, on the key issues of preemption and the expansive powers that a president has to deploy the military without direct Congressional authorization, Obama seems to have come around to the John Yoo school of law.

    Hey DailyKooks, remember your whines about “warmonger Hillary” and against the “unitary executive”?

  69. If what Hillary is saying is that Kissinger’s thoughts on the subject of foreign relations are somehow congruent with those of Obama, then she is barking up the wrong tree. What she should be saying is that they are congruent with her thoughts, and leave Obama out of it, or better yet contrast his views with those of Obama. Kissinger is a natural ally for her, and the greatest statesman of our time*
    She should use him to her benefit, as a way to rebut charges that she and Obama have the same views and are jointly and severally responsible for the meltdown of our foreign policy, by dint of her position in his administration. There is evidence that Obama was under involved in foreign policy, saw it as an extension of his campaign, and relied upon depraved actors with no background in that discipline–like Jarrett, Axelrod and Brennan to make the key decisions. (Ben Rhoades is nothing more than a go-fer in my opinion) Everything those three touched turned to shit, while Obama dithered.

    *Kissinger is the greatest diplomat of our time. From an historical standpoint, I would rate him at the same level as Karl Metternich the Austrian diplomat who forged the new world order at Vienna in 1815 in the aftermath of the Napoleonic War.

    The other contender is the Polish prince Zieb Brezenski. I regard him as an unmitigated disaster. More than anyone he is responsible for the rise of Muslim extremism which he unleashed on the world to bring down the old Soviet Union, creating in the process a global instability and chaos which was worse than the disease. If Kissinger was the heir of Metternick then Dr. Z is surely the antithesis.

  70. By the way, the comparison of Kissinger to Metternich is not coincidental. Kissinger did his doctoral dissertation on Metternich if memory serves.

  71. Obama told Chuck Todd of NBC’s Meet the Press that he was “confident that I have the authorization that I need to protect the American people.”
    ————
    Another blatant lie.

    When, if ever, has “protect(ing) the American People ever been a priority for this no good son of a bitch?

    1. when he is on the golf course?

    2. when he is at a fundraiser?

    3. when he refused to give the order to save our troops in Benghazi?

    4. when he legalizes 6 million illegals including potential terrorists about whom he knows nothing?

    5. when he prevents efforts by border states to secure the southern border?

    Help me understand why we should believe this narcissistic pathological liar now.

    And do not tell me because he is black.

  72. For me, watching a man who is so devoid of moral character make pious unctuous sounds about protecting the American people and warning us that ISIS is a threat when as recently as six months ago he was calling them jayvee makes you wonder whether he is more a puppet than a fool or more a fool than a puppet. I suppose we should not tarry too long on that one, because it is one of those metaphysical questions for which there is no definitive answer, like whether a cat’s ass is punched or bored.

  73. Remember the show Heehaw, starring Roy Clark and Buck Owen?

    Maybe not, but in case you do, there is a parallel.

    In that case, the audience chanted:

    Hey grandpa what is for supper?

    Whereupon the old frizzle proceeded to tell them.

    And the audience would then respond: Yuk!

    In this case the audience chants:

    Hey big media what is for supper?

    And big media tells us

    We will be having Vienna Sausage, brand Obama

    And we will be shoving it down your throats 24/7

    And you better not say yuk

    Or we will call you a racist.

  74. JUST IN: John Kerry to CNN: The U.S. is not at war with ISIS

    Newsflash to John Kerry….Well they seem to think they are at war with us and everybody else….You Cretin.

    This opens up an interesting possibility to actually flank the RINO.

    There is a handful of Tea Party people in the Senate–Cruz, Lee, Sessions

    There are a couple of independents—one is a loon, the other is capable of independent thought

    If the independent beats Roberts, then there will be a third independent.

    In a divided senate where a single vote can make the difference, this could prove significant.

    As far as Roberts is concerned, he is RINO who needs to go

    The father of Kathleen Sebelius underwrote his rise to power

    And his tenure in congress has been marked by being a dutiful water carrier for business interests

    Simply put, he is a mush ball.

  76. The guy opposing Roberts is not a real independent either……

    Orman says he has tried both…however…..

    Orman contributed to the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton in 2008, then wen over to donate to Obama.

    In 2007 he also contributed to Democratic Senator Harry Reid.

    He has also contributed to the campaigns of Republicans Scott Brown (in 2010) and Todd Akin.

    This sounds like more of the same to me, Orman is another Charlie Crist who will float with whoever will give him what he wants……Harry Reid, Todd Akin……not exactly great recommendations there as donations.

    His parsing on Obamacare is annoying…..He says he would have opposed it, but then says he thought it would fix a broken system and then says Republicans should not try and repeal it……That is sitting on every single fence there is.

    Obama losing the confidence of key parts of the coalition that elected him

    By Karen Tumulty September 11 at 12:21 PM 

    Kimberly Cole was part of the coalition that voted in 2008 to make Barack Obama the 44th president and in 2012 gave him another four years to deliver on his promises of hope and change.

    Now, the 36-year-old mother of three young children in Valencia, Calif., is among the majority of Americans who have lost confidence in Obama’s leadership and the job he is doing as president.

    “He’s been faced with a lot of challenges, and he’s lost his way,” Cole said in an interview. She worries that Obama lacks the resolve needed at a time when things at home and abroad are looking scarier.

    On the other side of the country, Karlene Richardson, 44, once counted herself a “very strong supporter” of the president. But now she feels much the same as Cole does.

    “Honestly, I just feel that what I bought into is not what I’m getting,” said Richardson, an author and motivational speaker who teaches health care administration at a community college in Queens. “I’m starting to wonder whether the world takes us seriously.”

    Both Cole and Richardson were surveyed in the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll and represent one of its most striking findings: the degree to which the president’s approval has slipped among key parts of the Obama coalition — the women, youth and Latino voters most responsible for putting him into office.

    Women surveyed said they disapprove of Obama by a 50 percent to 44 percent margin — nearing an all-time low in the poll. It’s almost the reverse of the 55 percent to 44 percent breakdown for Obama among female voters in 2012, according to exit polls.

    His approval rating among women has slipped 4 percentage points from a year ago and 16 percentage points since his second inaugural in January 2013, when his approval was 60 percent among the group.

    Among younger voting-age Americans, Obama’s approval rating stood at 43 percent. That marked an 11 percentage point drop since June among those from 18 through 29 years old. Voters younger than 30 supported Obama by 60 percent to 37 percent in 2012.

    Meanwhile, support for Obama among Hispanics stood at 57 percent, which is down markedly from the first half of 2013, when approval among Latinos soared to about 75 percent.

    Obama’s support remains solid among African Americans, with 87 percent approving of his job performance. That is a modest erosion from the 93 percent of black voters who supported his reelection.

    Of all of those groups, women are traditionally most likely to be swing voters — and the two parties have fought fiercely for their loyalties, with the Democrats coming out ahead in recent election cycles. At slightly over half the electorate, they are not a monolith, of course. Single women tend to vote more solidly Democratic; married women, more Republican. There are also ethnic differences in their electoral behavior.

    But there is fresh and growing evidence that many women’s faith in Obama has turned to misgivings — possibly making it more difficult for his party to retain their support in this year’s midterms and beyond.

    Virginia Wilson, 60, of Charleston, W.Va., is another disillusioned Obama voter.

    “I can’t blame it all on him,” she said, but added, “There was going to be a change, that we would see people coming together, instead of falling apart.”

    Suburban women’s concerns in particular change from election to election, and over the years, pollsters and political strategists have come up with different labels to describe this crucial slice of the electorate.

    In the 1990s, these middle-class women were known as “soccer moms,” and then-President Bill Clinton won reelection in part because of how well he related to their harried lives.

    After 9/11, there were “security moms” — a term coined by then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.). This group was seen as a major reason why, in 2002, George W. Bush became the first Republican president in a century to see his party pick up seats in a midterm election. But by 2006, as the country had soured on the Iraq war, they swung back to the Democrats.

    About five years ago, with economic insecurity rising to the top of their concerns, the political shorthand for swing-voting women became “Walmart Moms.” The retail giant began commissioning a pollster from each party to jointly conduct regular focus groups of women who shopped at its stores.

    On Tuesday night, two of those focus groups met in Little Rock and Des Moines. Both are states with tight Senate races that could help determine whether the chamber remains in Democratic hands.

    Neil Newhouse, the GOP pollster, said the groups are usually focused on “economic anxiety,” but the main concern has now shifted to security issues in the wake of atrocities committed by the Islamic State terrorist group ascendant in Iraq and Syria.

    “There was a sense that their personal safety and security was threatened,” Newhouse said, adding that the threat posed by the terror group “has these moms concerned, and these are women who don’t naturally gravitate to international issues.”

    Margie Omero, Newhouse’s Democratic partner in conducting the focus groups, agreed, noting that the women had also cited crime in their communities and unrest following the police shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old in Ferguson, Mo.

    “It was more pronounced than concerns about the economic downturn,” Omero said. “There was a lot more concern about crime and international unrest than we’ve seen in the past.”

    The two pollsters wrote in a memo summarizing their findings from the focus groups: “Regardless of their 2012 vote, moms’ opinions of Obama have dulled. At best, some feel sorry for him.”

    The beheading of two journalists by Islamic State terrorists does appear to have been a galvanizing event for many Americans. A newly released Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 94 percent had heard news of the murders — “a higher level of public attention than given to any of 22 news events” tested since 2009, the journal wrote.

    In the Post-ABC poll, Obama’s handling of international affairs loomed as a significant problem with women. Just 37 percent said they approve of the job he is doing, which is his lowest rating on this issue among women in Post-ABC polls and nearly matches his 38 percent approval among men.

    When called back for follow-up interviews, some of the women who responded to the Post-ABC poll said they too had been unsettled by the beheadings — and by Obama’s decision to play golf just minutes after giving a statement expressing his revulsion at the death of journalist James Foley.

    Cole, the California woman, said it seemed to her that Obama was “very nonchalant. . . . The personal side of it, that he has feelings, is gone.”

    And Richardson — interviewed before Obama gave a prime time speech Wednesday laying out plans to target Islamic State with airstrikes — said “he just made these promises that he doesn’t go through with” related to the terrorist group.

    How much effect this will have on the midterm elections is unclear.

    The two pollsters who conducted the Walmart Moms focus groups wrote that it will be indirect with those voters: “While he may be a player in how moms perceive the dysfunction in Washington, they will not have President Obama directly in mind when casting their vote in November.”

    Newhouse predicted that the shift in sentiment away from the current president is likely to have more implications in 2016. He said voters are likely to be looking for someone they believe has more foreign policy experience, and a stronger leadership style.

    But at the moment, some say they are just feeling burned and unsure whether they can put their trust in any candidate.

    Wilson, the West Virginian, said her father was an immigrant from Yugoslavia, whose experiences there had impressed on her the importance of voting.

    “It’s almost like I don’t care any more, and don’t want to support anybody,” she said. “And that’s really a shame.”

    Turkey Denies U.S. Permission for Combat Attacks on ISIL

    Turkey will not allow a U.S.-led coalition to attack Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorists in Iraq and Syria from Turkish air bases, AFP reports.

    Turkey will also not participate in combat operations but will instead focus on humanitarian aid to the countries. ISIL currently controls large portions of territory in Iraq and Syria along Turkey’s borders.

    ” Turkey will not be involved in any armed operation but will entirely concentrate on humanitarian operations,” a government official told AFP.

    Turkey has come under fire by some critics for indirectly encouraging the formation of ISIS because of its support of Islamist opponents of Syrian President Bashar Assad, and its loose control of its borders.

    Turkey is reluctant to attack ISIL due to the high number of Turkish hostages ISIL is holding, according to AFP.

  79. Boo hoo hoo…..not like we didn’t tell you over and over and you still went on and voted for the cheap suit like some poor beaten housewife on a trailer park coming back for more.

    NO SYMPATHY WHATSOEVER……..

  80. Not Surprised about Turkey, they are the ones responsible for helping Isis, all those gun runs and help for Isis over the border…..

    Isis terrorists and commanders are currently being treated in Turkish hospitals and then being returned over the border…….and this I am not joking about.

    Yet the US is turning a blind eye to all of this.

    You want someone directly responsible for arming and funding ISIS look no further than Erdogan’s Gov’t

  81. No strategy, No Germany:

    We haven’t been asked, nor will we do it,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters when asked about German participation in air strikes against the Islamic State, known as ISIL or ISIS, in light of Mr. Obama’s speech.

    “We need to be honest with ourselves in the current situation, we don’t yet have a final, blanket strategy which guarantees that we’ll be successful against ISIS and similar groups,” the German minister said in Berlin.

    Soon it will be just Barack and Michelle throwing high calorie carbohydrates and sugars out of Air Force One against ISIS.

  82. …just thinking about how many times O blamed his predecessor for what he “inherited”

    …how O never takes responsibility for anything that happens on his watch…

    …how he “had so much to deal with when he took office”…how no one ever had it so bad when they came into office…bla,bla,bla

    …so now we hear this is going to go on for years and that whoever the next President is … is going to inherit this from O…so what’s O’s excuse now?

  83. Turkey should be reclassified as a terrorist state since they support ISIS and booted out of NATO. The EU should also permanently ban them from joining and restrict all travel to there and restrict immigration from Turkey into Europe. Maybe that will wake up the secular Turks who don’t support the Islamists in power over there to overthrow those POS.

    Didn’t they get the Rhoades memo?

    Given their history, they ought to know that no battle plan survives the first engagement.

    Why then insist on a little thing like a strategy?

    Why not simply TRUST the Messiah?

    Just like the stupid ass American voters did–twice is nice.

    Come on now, we are talking about Obama–O-Ba-Ma!

    The guy who gave those surreal speeches at the Brandenburg Gate.

    No not Hitler–that was Nurenmberg and Lenny Reifenstahl was not present.

    “Having a druggie as president is bad.”
    ****
    JFK was the most drugged President that we have had; barbiturates, opiates, amphetamines on top of adrenal insufficiency. The difference is that he had Bobby to keep thing going, Barry has Val and Ben.
    —-

    Kennedy had a lot of health problems, including Ulcerative Colitis and severe back problems. He get’s a pass on many meds because of that. In a way, they had to prop him up just to keep him going.

  95. “In a way, they had to prop him up just to keep him going.”
    *****
    After his death, Senators were briefed on how bad his drug usage and health problems were and was probably why the 25 Amendment went through Congressional passage rather quickly. IMO, RFK’s role in keeping the Kennedy administration running smoothly was severely diminished by Teddy White and Jackie in the post assassination hagiography.

  96. Kennedy suffered from colitis, prostatitis, and a disorder called Addison’s disease, which affects the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar and sodium. He also had osteoporosis of the lower back, causing pain so severe that he was unable to perform simple tasks such as reaching across his desk to pull papers forward, or pulling the shoe and sock onto his left foot, Dallek said.

    Taking Drugs During Crises

    To fight the pain, Kennedy took as many as 12 medications at once, taking more during times of stress.

    The medical records reveal that Kennedy variously took codeine, Demerol and methadone for pain; Ritalin, a stimulant; meprobamate and librium for anxiety; barbiturates for sleep; thyroid hormone; and injections of a blood derivative, gamma globulin, a medicine that combats infections.

    JFK’s body falling apart and still able to be a great President, then we have Berry…

  97. Amazing with all those pains and problems that JFK could have all those supposed “relationships” with all those women.

    Do present day presidents have to take drug tests to be eligible? If not, perhaps they should.

  98. I remember how proud Obama was to call Erdogan his most trusted advisor. Erdogan, a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood , fanatic Islam, and virulent anti-Semite. No surprise he of the dropping “G”s are best pals.

  99. After his death, Senators were briefed on how bad his drug usage and health problems were and was probably why the 25 Amendment went through Congressional passage rather quickly. IMO, RFK’s role in keeping the Kennedy administration running smoothly was severely diminished by Teddy White and Jackie in the post assassination hagiography
    —————
    Yes. And James (Scotty) Reston of NYT and Ben Bradley (spouse Mayflower Sally Q aka the great horizontal) of WashPo were family friends also protective of the Kennedy name. Glad to be rid of him, Jackie asked why did it half to be some little commie? Why could it have not been some southern racists who spilled his spoonful of brains before the snow flies.

    This too was part of the meticulous funeral planning by Jackie, anxious to secure JFK a throne in the firmament of the Civil Rights movement, which is why the bloated drugged up Teddie protested when Hillary gave that credit to LBJ. From the vantage point of the Kennedy family and their beautification of John, this was the unkindest cut of all. Or, as Twain once said never let a little thing like the truth stand in the way of a fairy tale.

    Where was the beloved Teddy when the lights went out? Legend has it that he was too busy abusing his wife Joan and dashing around in snort’n sport’n spree with that other cock hound Chris Dodd to notice. In sum, the bloated rum sodden Teddy was . . . how shall I put it . . . otherwise occupied.

  100. Initially, he dismissed the ISIS threat (Danegeld), then he admitted it was a threat and told us he had no strategy to deal with it, and now he claims to have a Carthaginian strategy which turns out to have so many contingencies built in that is doomed to fail. As a result, CIC Obama will turn corpsmen (and many others) into corpse men in the fulsomeness of time.

  101. Shadow… lol…. I can usually control it, but usually I avoid looking at him/listening to him. Just seeing his face on the internet automatically makes half of my mouth go up in a scowl – seriously, it just happens, every time lol So trying to watch him on tv and stick to it defeated my control.

    Whenever I hear he has gone to this that business, I always think how would I get out of my job so I wouldn’t have to be anywhere around him – because the secret service would probably harass me for the disgusted look on my face lol

  102. As I have mentioned before, I set up a campaign office for Hillary in Kitani Pennsylvania and from there I went canvassing. Bye and bye I came to the home of an old lady whose name was on our list as someone we wanted to vote in the primary. I gave her some campaign literature, and waited for her response. She gave me the evil eye and told me to beware because Obama was the devil. I did not argue with her but simply told her the time and location of the polls. But I must tell you, I did not buy her assertion–at least not then. But during the succeeding years, I came to appreciate just how right she was, and how wrong I was for thinking otherwise. For anyone who remains skeptical at this point, I recommend the following article and the picture that show Obama with horns. Not only is this picture worth a thousand words, but this picture should remove all doubt that he is Satanic. And his supporters? Devil worshippers.

    http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/09/11/drudge-report-photos-capture-obama-head-of-horns-from-last-nights-white-house-speech/

  103. Liberal documentary filmmaker and iconoclast Michael Moore – who’s been tough on President Barack Obama in the past — eviscerates him in a new video interview, saying he’ll be remembered as the first black president — and “that’s it.”

    Well, that’s not true – that’s not “it”, that’s not “all”…. history books will probably glorify him, but those of us who lived through his time will remember him for his incompetence, cheating, narcissism, and cult-figure status…. we’ll also remember him as the first HALF black president…

  104. We doubt the Obama “war for votes” speech last night will change any of this:

    Dear Admin,

    Please correct your statement to more properly read “counter-terrorism action for votes”.

    Thanks, John Kerry

    lol

  105. The Charlie Rose school of “I know some nice Muslims” isn’t cutting it anymore. So do I Charlie but I don’t know where they are sending money to support fanatics who crucify children and cut off Westerner’s heads for YouTube. The silence of the “moderates” or good Muslims is deafening. For some reason they don’t want to talk about it or if forced want to change the subject or rationalize something that hasn’t been asked. The fault of thousands of raped little British girls is that of the police. Did the police rape them? No. Muslim men raped them. It has something to do with their religion allowing it.

    The mush and propaganda about Islam that has been pedaled to the public since 9/11 is coming to an end. Are all Muslims violent neck choppers and rapists and airplane bombers. Of course not but that is by personal preference rather than by the teachings of Islam. Obama has been the premier international mouth piece of the agitprop for the “religion of peace”. As a creation of marketing and media Obama has been front and center spreading this garbage and daring anyone to gainsay him. ISIS has proven the lies. The rapists of Rotherham have proven the lies. The fanaticism and intent of 9/11 was obvious but rationalized and covered up by the left and the Obama-media. Islamaphobia! ISIS cut your media guys heads off. What is Muslim ISIS telling Obama the media marketing created president? I think they cut his presidency’s head off too.

  106. I was worried about posting this article, knowing it would be such a shock. It seems that some people associated with Eric Holder’s office are a little bit sneaky conniving, and dishonest (maybe a little stupid, too) Can you believe it?!

    ____________

    Issa: Holder aide caught red-handed

    By Bernie Becker – 09/09/14 08:32 PM EDT

    The administration official calling House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s (R-Calif.) office last week had an odd request.

    Could the Justice Department get some help leaking information about the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups? asked Brian Fallon, a top spokesman for Attorney General Eric Holder.

    Apparently thinking he had reached the office of Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), Fallon said the department wanted congressional staffers to get documents to selected reporters so that officials could comment on them “before the majority” did.

    After Issa spokesman Frederick Hill replied that Oversight Committee staffers would have to examine those documents first, the line went silent, and Fallon placed the call on hold for three minutes.

    When he returned to the line, Fallon was “audibly shaken,” according to an account of the conversation that Issa recounts in a letter sent to Holder.

    The Justice official then said there had been a “change in plans,” that no documents would be released on Friday and that the main reason for the call was to seek a thaw in relations between the department and Oversight Republicans.

    Issa said it’s clear that the Justice official meant to call Democratic staff and argued the mix-up is proof that President Obama’s administration and Cummings have been collaborating to “prejudice the committee’s work through under-the-table coordination

  107. Generally speaking, I would have to say that I am not a devotee of wave elections. By definition, a wave election is one that sweeps the incumbent party out of office, and provides, temporarily at least, a Carthaginian Peace. The trigger for a wave election is that the party in power has so abused its mandate that the public revolts in the one way which the system provides for. It is the political equivalent of the death penalty for many incumbents and their staffs, who in my view, are the real abusers of power. And it serves the same interests as the death penalty, those being 1) retaliation (or retributive justice), 2) deterrence (to those who would follow the same anti social path), 3)isolation (where they can no longer harm the American People–which would apply in spades to a moral degenerate like that wiley coyote Harry Reid.

    That said however, as with the death penalty, wave elections are not all beer and skittles. The concerns which plague the death penalty, i.e. eye witnesses can be wrong–and are notoriously so, confessions can be coerced (Miranda is a very formulaic effort to avoid that sort of thing–not very effective, far better to tape the interrogations to determine whether they were coerced, than to utter some hollow shibboleth springing forth from the brain of former California Governor, and Oakland Prosecutor, and son of a preacher, who delivered his state for Ike in ’52 Earl Warren.

    Simply put, the problem with wave election is that they eliminate the most effective check and balance to the blind pursuit of political power. I yield to no man in the contempt I hold for Obama. However, I have no illusions about the RINO. The same people who rigged the primary in Mississippi through vile race baiting, lies, walk around money, in order to install one of their own who is essentially a breathing corpse, leads me to believe that the RINO is no white knight. I doubt he would destroy the system, which is exactly what Obama and the black caucus have in mind. But would he milk the system, and enact policies which are not in the interests of the American People. I am quite sure he would.

    What I am looking for in 2014 is a knock out punch for the party of Barack Hussein Obama, and the vermin who support him. I do so in the name of retribution, deterrence and isolation. If that happens, then Obama will go wild and it will be up to the nattering nabobs of negativity like Boeher, and McConnell (I pray he does not survive) to confront him in every way possible rather than doing their usual temporizing, i.e. we can do nothing because we do not control the White House, that will be their new excuse when and if they take the senate. You can see in their proposed agenda how little they are really willing to do–eliminating tax on medical devices but retain Obamacare, etc. That will not move the country forward, and is an abdication in leadership.

    Yes, I worry about the left wing flotsam and jetsom who will endeavor to attach themselves to Hillary like barnacles. But to me the best result for the country, assuming the RINOs knock out Ted Cruz would be a Clinton presidency and a Republican Congress. From 1992-94, Bill’s performance was sub standard. He was pulled hard to the left, and that is what led to the Republican miracle of 1994 as they called it. When I held fundraisers for Republican candidates, that is how we referred to it, and to Goldwater, all in the same breath. But when Bill had political opposition, we had one of the most successful periods in our history, mired at the end by the hypocritical pursuit of the Lewinsky matter. What wonderful things Bill could have done in the latter days of his presidency but for that has been up to now an imponderable. When Hillary takes the presidential oath we will begin to find out.

  108. Remember the bullshit big media was promulgating in 2008. Hillary is not likeable. Hillary is not authentic. Whereas Obama is. Remember. They salted their panels with Obama shills who proclaimed that Obama won all the debates, and later confirmed what our eyes and ears told us was true. She won 24 of the 26. These people make a market in lies. That is their clear modus operandi and it will not changed. Of all the vermin who deserve to be punished for what Obama has done to this nation, the results of which are a stain on this nation, these people should be at the top of the hit parade. They are the ones who stepped out of the role of journalist, and became the great deceiver. They should pay the price.

  109. I forgot my point: Notice how they were keen on measuring Obama’s likeablity and would run a separate sub poll on just that. On the eve of the 2010 mid term, big media was running polls showing that even though 55% disapproved of his policies, 70% found him likeable. (Note: those are estimates offered for no other reason than to prove the delta)

    I dare those cocksuckers to run a likability poll on the Messhiah now. I rather suspect that it nothing else penetrated the Kevlar cranium of the average voter, the spectacle of is going to the golf course to celebrate the beheading of journalists who looked and acted a lot like the political class may have caused a miniscule slip in his likeability. May be.

  110. On the other hand, the sheeple can probably rationalize it.

    After all, he has admitted that it was not good optics.

    Also, given the immense pressures of the job . . .

    Which job are you referring to? . . .

    The one he is AWOL from, silly goose . . .

    He needs a little R&R now and then

    And besides, he is black.

    Fine.

    Give me candidate Ben Carson, and I will admit black is beautiful.

    But Obama–no fucking way.

    The best you can say about him?

    A con man with deep pathologies.

  111. I think it was rat boy who squeezed the faint mea culpa out of the messiah: it was not good optics for me to go to the golf course right after I gave a speech commemorating the beheading of journalists.

    Daring do for rat boy. Forcing the messiah to admit that He is fallible. Now there is a courageous “journalist for you”. He really knows how to speak truth to power. Zola would rise from the grave and salute that mental midget.

  112. Ernst: Now Chuck, when you interview the president, I want you to ask him whether it was right for him to go to the golf course right after the speech about the beheadings. The president wants to tell the country that he regrets doing that, and show them he is not the arrogant, self serving, imperious person he appears to be. So Chuck, make it all sound natural. Work it into your list of questions and wink at him so he knows when the question is coming.

    Todd: yes boss.

    Bill Mayer is right as rain on this clip.

    Charlie is playing the nitwit PC game of a left wing commentator.

  114. Charlie Rose is all about moral relativism. He epitomizes all that is wrong. In his view, the only people in the world who are wrong about anything are Christians. That is the standard by which he measures everything and concludes that X is not worse than, etc. What is it with this ignorant motherfucker that they should give him a television program. Why not extend the same privilege to the simian cage in the zoos. They are no dumber than he is and not nearly as arrogant.

    Rose has attended several Bilderberg Group conference meetings, including meetings held in the United States in 2008,[20] Spain in 2010,[21] and Switzerland in 2011.

    Rose’s twelve-year marriage to Mary Rose (née King) ended in divorce in 1980. Mary is the sister-in-law of the former Morgan Stanley Chairman John J. Mack. Since 1993, his companion has been socialite and chairman of the New York City Planning Commission and director of the city department of planning Amanda Burden, a stepdaughter of CBS founder William S. Paley.[23]

    Rose owns a house in Henderson, North Carolina, a 575-acre (2.33 km2) farm in Oxford, North Carolina, an apartment overlooking Central Park in New York City, a beach house in Bellport, New York, an apartment in Washington, D.C.,[3] and an apartment in Paris, France.

    Well that is interesting. But I’m still wondering how Charlie manages legally to remain on PBS, yet be a regular on CBS in the morning. Just a hunch that the two organizations have corporate ties, which is interesting.

    Our local PBS station is WVIA. There is a VIA communications outfit which does work for another local public broadcaster. I wondered about that too although I don’t know for a fact that the two are connected. Mixing private and public money? Maybe.

    For years I’ve clicked by PBS Charlie in a hurry; always thought he looked like Harry Reid (moth-eaten), but he has cleaned up a bit for the Maher video here.

    Rose is a living breathing example of the Harvard based “gentlemen’s C”.

    Meaning when you are as well connected as he is, you do not have to be very good.

    Rose pushes that concept to the limits of its logic.

    He is naïve and robotic and shallow—and, obviously connected.

    Which explains why he is where he is.

    It is not what you know, but who you blow, right Charlie.

  117. I hate Charlie Rose and people like him.

    Here is why:

    Visions differ. Visions also compete with each other. But in some eras one vision so predominates over others that it can be considered the prevailing vision of the time.

    This dominant vision manifests itself in a framework of ASSUMPTIONS within which most contemporary social and political discourse takes place in the media, in academia and in politics.

    The rise of mass media, mass politics, and massive government means that the BELIEFS THAT DRIVE SMALL GROUP OF ARTICULATE PEOPLE determine the course taken by the whole society.

    In his seminal book, my friend, Tom Sowell examines the vision of this elite intelligencia and their numerous followers in the political arena and the court room.

    He also conducts an empirical comparision between:

    THE PROMISED BENEFITS OF THIS VISION (VS)

    THE GRIM OFTEN BITTER CONSEQUENCES OF THOSE POLITICAL AND JUDICIAL DECISIONS.

    In short, the purpose of this book is to not only see

    WHAT KIND OF WORLD EXISTS IN THE MINDS OF A SELF ANNOINTED ELITE

    BUT TO SEE HOW THAT WORLD AFFECTS THE WORLD OF REALITY

    In terms of:

    1. crime

    2. family disintegration

    3. national security

    And other pathologies of our time.

    The ultimate danger lies in the fact that these people

    By virtue of their wealth, connections and hubris

    Do not live in the real world

    And do not suffer the consequences of their benighted views.

    Most of which are visited upon the American middle class

    And a posterity that has no vote.

    That is the problem with the Charlie Roses of this world

    As they struggle to explain the phenomenon of Islam

    In the context of their benighted world view

    The more these people are in control

    The more the society and nation will decline.

  118. The name of that book is The Vision of the Annointed. It eviscerates the elites. But at the end of the day, they still control the society, which is why we are going down.

  119. Learned Hand once observed that the Kingdom of God will not be at hand when the last king is beheaded or the last member of the Politburo is executed. Final authority must always reside somewhere. But when the people who hold that authority do not live in the real world, the nation will decline. Ill fares the land to hastening ills aprey where wealth accumulates and men decay.

  120. What I am looking for in 2014 is a knock out punch for the party of Barack Hussein Obama, and the vermin who support him. I do so in the name of retribution, deterrence and isolation. If that happens, then Obama will go wild

    I’d love to see his hands tied, but now that he’s fallen in love with executive orders, can he be stopped….? Even if he does something outrageously wrong and unconstitutional, I don’t have faith that the media or the republicans will do anything about it….

  121. I don’t know what the official definition of “war” is, but I think it may need to be revisited. Since 9/11, all we hear is that the future will be less about state vs state conflicts, and more about terrorism. Actually, I remember back in the 90s they weren’t saying “war”, they gave conflicts nicknames instead – “Operation Desert Storm”, etc – I don’t know why they were doing that even then.

    Anyway, even if a conflict doesn’t involve a state, we’ve seen that there are states supporting terrorists, helping to fund them, etc. And so we don’t “recognize them as a state” – we certainly recognize them as organized groups with leaders and income sources. And you’re just as dead if you’re killed by a state sponsored soldier or a terrorist affiliated soldier. It just seems to be it’s quacking like a duck…

  122. They salted their panels with Obama shills who proclaimed that Obama won all the debates, and later confirmed what our eyes and ears told us was true. She won 24 of the 26. These people make a market in lies.

    I remember hearing a long time ago that history is what historians write it to be – I’ve learned now that “reality” is what media writes it to be (at least for those who only read or listen to MSM).

  123. I remember when more people were realizing how incompetent Obama is, they were still telling pollsters that he was very likeable – I always figured they did that to insulate themselves from the ubiquitous charges of racism – they told the truth about his job performance, but weaseled out with the likeability poll. Maybe they’ve always done these likeability polls, but I don’t remember them before Obama, anyway.

    They *are* starting up with the “Hillary is cold”, “Hillary is unlikeable”, etc, again. Based on the in-person polls I’ve seen of young people, though, she’s going to need to make an extra effort to reach them, because they don’t seem to know her, and they’re going to hear a lot of negative talking points about her.

  124. I think it was Talleyrand who said about the Bourbon dynasty whose heads rolled at the devil’s tooth:

    They have learned nothing and have forgotten nothing.

    So I read this WSJ article written by someone who has no wiki reading.

    He is in Iowa and he reports Hillary has work to do.

    To which I say fuck Iowa.

    But who does he interview?

    Democrats who supported Obama in 2008.

    And like the Bourbon dynasty, they still believe in Obama.

    After he has half destroyed this nation.

    And they are still skeptical of Hillary.

    Which is why I say fuck Iowa.

    These people are as uneducable as the Bourbons.

    And in the fulsomeness of time are likely to come to a similar fate.

    The larger question: why would anyone interview people who voted for Obama.

    They haven’t the common sense god gave a jackass.

    Unless your goal was to sink Hillary.

    So fuck Peter Nicholas who refuses to tell us who he is.

    So they have reduced the vital decision of who to hire for the most important job in the world to a single question.

    Is he/she more likeable than his/her opponent?

    From the first century A.D. and a declining Rome:

    Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses[6]

    […] iam pridem, ex quo suffragia nulli / uendimus, effudit curas; nam qui dabat olim / imperium, fasces, legiones, omnia, nunc se / continet atque duas tantum res anxius optat, / panem et circenses. […]
    (Juvenal, Satire 10.77–81)
