Obama continues to vote present because he just likes Being There

Obama has not only diminished the nation in the eyes of the world but he’s diminished the office of president in the eyes of the American people.  It’s a shame when Americans have lost all pride in the POTUS and the first family. It’s sad that he’s such a bumbling fool, which reflects on all of us.

From bowing to foreign leaders:

Obama has weakened our position on the world stage.

So, when the president is selling $5 raffle tickets from his living room in the White House for a dinner with him or Joe Biden, it’s obvious to all that the prestige of the office is in the basement. It’s on par with the sleaziness of selling the Lincoln bedroom.

 

Let’s hope a dinner with a common American goes better than this one did:

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The Obamas are totally out of their element as the First Family of America.

~~~ooOoo~~~

Obama has the Alinsky community organizer job down very well: give the idea and incentive and then delegate so if (or when) it doesn’t work out, he has clean hands. It’s really nothing more than a continuation of voting “present” by just Being There.

Just Being There (in the White House) is all he really wants anyway: the perks and the private concerts with super stars, the private jet and personal chef. Honestly, after reading Michael Barone in the National Review today, I can see why BO wants to be president again. Being There is just so easy.

Which past leader does Barack Obama most closely resemble? His admirers, not all of them liberals, used to compare him to Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt.

[…]

But there is another comparison I think more appropriate for a president who, according to one of his foreign-policy staffers, prefers to “lead from behind.” The man I have in mind is Chauncey Gardiner, the character played by Peter Sellers in the 1979 movie Being There.

Peter Sellers as Chauncey Gardiner in Being There. And many believe that just like Chauncey, Obama walks on water, too.

As you may remember, Gardiner is a clueless gardener who is mistaken for a Washington eminence and becomes a presidential adviser. Asked if you can stimulate growth through temporary incentives, Gardiner says, “As long as the roots are not severed, all is well, and all will be well in the garden.”

“First comes the spring and summer,” he explains, “but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.” The president is awed as Gardiner sums up, “There will be growth in the spring.”

Kind of reminds you of Barack Obama’s approach to the federal budget, doesn’t it?

[…]

On all these issues, Obama seems oddly disengaged, aloof from the hard work of government, hesitant about making choices.

That doesn’t sound like Lincoln. Or Roosevelt. Or even Jimmy Carter. More like “then we have fall and winter.”

 


2 more examples of Obama’s Jewish contempt

A couple of news stories that might have gotten past you and many Jewish Americans:

Here’s story #1, H/t Astute Bloggers, from the NYT:

When an international flotilla sails for Gaza this month to challenge Israel’s naval blockade of the Palestinian territory, among the boats will be an American ship with 34 passengers, including the writer Alice Walker and an 86-year-old whose parents died in the Holocaust.

The Americans have named their boat “The Audacity of Hope,” lifting the title of a book by President Obama to make a point, said Leslie Cagan, a political organizer who is the coordinator of the American boat.

“We’re sending a message to our own government that we think it could play a much more positive role in not only ending the siege of Gaza, but also ending the whole occupation” of Palestinian land, she said. 

Is there any chance Obama will request they change the boat’s name? Nah. I didn’t think so, either.

Then, there’s this from American Thinker:

Mysteriously, the Office of the President has requested that a video of a Jewish singing group performing at the White House [in honor of American Jewish Heritage month] be removed from the web.

As part of the entertainment at the event, the Maccabeats were invited to sing several songs. They also did an impromptu acapella chant, with beautiful harmonies, of  “Four More Years,” which was the video posted on Matzav.com.

Believe it or not, the website Matzav.com complied with the presidential request and the song was also removed from YouTube.

Am I the only person (aside from Thomas Lifson) curious as to why the WH wanted this video removed? I’m certain that no one in the media will ask his regime about either of these stories.

Obama is going to continue to bitch slap Israel and American Jews and guess what… they will continue to vote for him.


Black rapper to appear at the White House – calls for killing cops, Bush

Have you seen this story at the Daily Caller?

This is how our tax dollars and the White House – which we own – is being used by the FLOTUS.  She’s bringing in an illiterate, black rapper poet who talks about killing cops and George Bush.

Please God, move these people out of the White House after 2012.


Oh to be a fly on the wall. . .

H/t to LeatherneckM31

Please read his blog regarding the events that led up to the assault on bin Laden’s “mansion.”  I think it’s going to be enlightening to some and will verify what others of us have already believed about this president and his regime.

I don’t believe that Obama would be out golfing and have to be pulled off the course, if he knew that this assault was taking place. I also know from reading Game Change that Obama doesn’t take a dump without notifying Valerie Jarrett first and that fits in well with the narrative on Leatherneck’s blog.

Now, for interesting aside, also via Leatherneck and the UK Mail is the sketchy story of the other woman in the situation room – Audrey Tomason.  I think this lady was with the CIA and her cover has been blown or at least compromised by this administrations haste to get out a photo.

Michael Barrett, a national security expert and principal at strategy firm Diligent Innovations, suggests that the photograph outed a sensitive national security employee.

He said: ‘You can make a reasonable deduction that she’s a member of the intelligence community. Is that a story [the White House] wants to put out there in public? The fact that we can see her face could potentially jeopardize her career.’

If this is true and she has been outed, what idiot in the White House approved this photo for release?


For Obama, golf is a nice walk spoiled.

It's apparent how much TheOne doesn't like golf. from the reddogreport.com

He doesn’t really like golf all that much. He’d rather be sitting in the park, people watching or “rolling out of bed” on Saturday mornings to go squeeze fruit in the local market, unshaven, with his daughters.

All he wants to do is go for a walk but he’s too famous now, so he’s settling for a weekly round of golf.

Although, regardless of whether he’d be walking in the park or walking the course (which he doesn’t do, he uses a golf cart) he would still be surrounded by secret service agents. So call me stupid, but I’m missing the point.

All he wants is to be anonymous again. Ha! Well I’ve got a news flash for him and for his wife who told Mrs. Sarkozy that being first lady was “hell”: You ain’t never gonna be unknown again! You wanted this job? You wanted the perks? You wanted the weekly celebraty entertainment parties? It’s all yours now, pal, that and the loss of your privacy.


The blog every ‘Birther’ should read – and all the rest of us on the right, too

I went looking for the blog that my good friend AFVET mentioned in another post regarding our START treaty with Russia and stumbled on this one. Everyone should read it.

Although I’ve waffled on this topic and can see both sides of the issue, mostly I’ve believed that this whole birth certificate thing is a red herring. It’s being used to set up the right as the nutwings the progressives believe we are. This is an issue that the left wants in the news, daily. And this Abercrombie in Hawaii is as stupid as a fox by using it to whip up more and more headlines in order to make conservatives look more and more nutty.

Did you know, for instance that this birth certificate thing all started with the Hillary movement, in 2008? Or that Orly Taitz (the lead attorney in this whole thing) is a democrat donor? And that a lot of this hoopla about the certificate has been fowarded by 9-11 truthers?

Well, I for one, had no idea of these things. But the author of this blog seems to have evidence to those assertions. And I find no reason to doubt his statements. And I admit to pretty much ignoring this BC topic because I believe, in the end, that it’s going to be a hammer used to beat us up and win this election for Obama.

When I read that this governor was going to “settle this birth certificate thing once and for all,” I smelled a rat. There is no way that this was going to happen without the imprimatur of the White House. Abercrombie, the self avowed socialist, was not working unilaterally. Obama’s people had to be involved in this. If the gov’s goal was to settle this, then why didn’t the WH just produce the thing and settle it?

I think it’s clear why they didn’t. They want to use the birthers to beat up on the right during this next election. Of course, the beating up will not OFFICIALLY come out of the Obama campaign. It will be a whisper campaign that will then be carried and screeched by all MSM.

The birthers want the same thing that the all conservatives want: a one term president. They need to quiet down this whole thing and let it ride until we vote him out.  Otherwise this is going to be used to beat the right – all of the right – over the head. This could change some independents minds come November 2012, who were likely NOT to vote to reelect him.

If the birthers turn out to be right, this can all be settled after we vote him out of office.

But who knows – maybe in the eleventh hour of this election, like a Hail Mary pass, someone will produce the real birth certificate, make the birthers look like wingnuts and a little thing like that could swing the election for Obama.


No warning – Your domain name is gone! But anyone (who’s progressive) can use the presidential seal.

DHS has seized this page!

Claiming that it is seizing domain names (like amoyhy.com and do search that site so you can see the DHS seizure notice) that are infringing on copyright and counterfeit laws, the DHS has been pretty busy while the rest of us were enjoying turkey and pumpkin pie.

These domain owners had no advance notice or warnings and in fact, even godaddy.com was unaware that its clients were losing their sites.  until after the deed was done.

The targets – at this time – are bootleg music and replica or as DHS calls them, counterfeit handbag-type sites.

Seriously, you’re ordering a Louis Vuittan bag for $49.95 and you think it’s authentic? You really are a dope, if you think so.

So while we’re on the topic of counterfeit, bootleg and pirated stuff, how about this story: Center for American Progress using presidential seal on its ‘teaching Obama how to be a progessive president’ materials.

ALG [Americans for Limited Government] President Bill Wilson initially sent a letter to White House counsel Robert Bauer asking if he granted an exception to the Center for American Progress to use the seal for its publication, “The Power of the President: Recommendations to Advance Progressive Change.”

The report offers President Obama a blueprint on how he can advance his agenda through the use of  executive orders, instead of relying on Congress after Democrats lost control of the House in this month’s midterm elections.

There’s been no response from the White House or from the DOJ on whether permission was granted to CAP to use the seal on its publication.  As the Fox story explains, the use of the seal is very narrow and limited primarily to educational and historical purposes. You can’t just go around slapping THE seal on documents without asking first. . . unless you’re John Podesta or on the George Soros payroll, then I suppose it’s okay to pirate THE seal to promote your propaganda.

Is this the change all those college students voted for? Their music and faux designer handbag and shoe sites are being shut down by DHS – like they have nothing more important to shut down – and the regime is making noises about deactivating their cell phones in their cars.

I hope they are loving this “fundamental transformation” they went all gah-gah over 2 years ago.

They deserve this.


Okay, so which is it? If the American people want it, it’s a sure bet Obama will oppose it.

The next day:

White House spokesman Bill Burton [the likely future press secretary] released the following statement on behalf of Obama’s stance on constructing the mosque.

“Just to be clear, the president is not backing off in any way from the comments he made last night. It is not his role as president to pass judgment on every local project. But it is his responsibility to stand up for the constitutional principle of religious freedom and equal treatment for all Americans. What he said last night, and reaffirmed today, is that If a church, a synagogue or a Hindu temple can be built on a site, you simply cannot deny that right to those who want to build a mosque.”

So, who exactly has come out to ban ALL mosques in America or has come out to oppose the rights of Muslims to practice their faith? I’m sick and tired of trying to parse this guys words.

It’s a simple question: are you in favor of the building of this mosque at this site or not?

It’s that simple but it’s also a sure thing that if the majority of Americans are opposed to something, Obama will be in favor of it. Look at the history of the last year and a half. Every single thing that he has had his court jesters – Reid and Pelosi – push through congress, has been in direct opposition to what the people want.

Once again, Obama has jumped into an issue that he would have been better off keeping his pie-hole closed about. It’s very clear where his sympathies lie.

No one has said it better than this:

“Barack Obama has abandoned America at the place where America’s heart was broken nine years ago, and where her true values were on display for all to see,” said Debra Burlingame, a spokeswoman for some Sept. 11 victims’ families and the sister of one of the pilots killed in the attacks.


White House crasher tearfully accuses Whoopi of assault. Next comes the lawsuit.

These people – all of them – have absolutely no class, at all!

Fans of “The View” missed the best part of Wednesday’s show – an obscenity-laced backstage battle between co-host Whoopi Goldberg and White House gatecrashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

Tareq Salahi, upset that Goldberg touched his wife during a segment of the show, had an “elevated and heated” exchange after the live telecast.

Michaele and other cast members were on “The View” – to promote tonight’s launch of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Neither Goldberg nor Tareq Salahi were part of the interview.

As Michaele recounted a drink-throwing dispute between Tareq and one of the wives, Goldberg walked on stage, touched her shoulder, and said, “Excuse me, can you get back to the White House, please.”

“Oh, if you’d like us to, we can,” Michaele replied as Goldberg walked away. After the show, a sobbing Michaele fled to a security office, saying she felt attacked. The Salahis claimed Goldberg got physical with Michaele; Goldberg confronted her and the F-bombs flew.

“As the broadcast clearly shows, the accusation was completely unfounded,” a “View” spokeswoman said. “After being told she was being accused of hitting Ms. Salahi, Whoopi proceeded to defend herself verbally.”

It’s just the latest incident for the Salahis, who hit the celebrity map last year after being accused of crashing a White House state dinner.

The backstage battle should be on the menu when the cast appears on “Today” this morning – and when Goldberg appears on “The View.”


Michelle Obama, spending our money in Spain – GM making political donations again

The Washington Post reports that GM has given $41,000 to the Congressional Black Caucus. Why didn’t they give that money back to the American people since it was us who bailed them and their UNIONS out? Why did the CBC even take the money in light of that fact? Why isn’t the CBC even a little concerned with the financial plight of the people they represent? (Isn’t there something a little racist about a congressional BLACK caucus, anyway? Try to develop a CWC and see what kind of outcry that will cause!)

(GM is not Government Motors. It’s really GUM – Government/Union Motors and  you will never catch me driving a Chevy or Buick.)

Nearly a half a million people are unemployed and today, Drudge reports that food stamp usage is at an all time high while Michelle Obama enjoys a fantasy weekend in Spain with a couple dozen of her closest friends. All the while, those in the WH and Congress are telling us that we will have to make sacrifices during this economic crisis.

Today on the web pages of The New York Daily News there are photo galleries with these headlines and pull quotes:

First Lady of style

Meet Michelle Obama – a superachiever who made it to the White House while keeping her family priority No. 1.

It must be love

The First Couple makes time for romance as well as politics.

Barack Obama: He’s just like us

He may be the President of the United States, but Obama is still just a regular Joe.

The photos made me so angry that I had to stop clicking through them.  I have never seen such tone deaf politicians in my life. They have absolutely no concern about how their extravagance appears to the American people, who are pinching pennies and trying to hold onto jobs and make mortgage payments – let alone take a vacation! And we are paying for all this fun in the sun that the Obamas and their friends are enjoying!

As Andrea Tantaros points out in her column today, why is Michelle spending money in Spain when we have an entire nation she could use as her playground? How about the gulf coast? What would a long weekend there, by Michelle and her buddies, do for the tourism industry that’s been hit so hard this summer?

Are any of you old enough to remember the uproar from the press when Nancy Reagan purchased new china for the WH, although she never used one tax dollar to pay for it? Or how Nixon had to proclaim to the entire nation that his wife “doesn’t wear a mink coat, she has a respectable Republican cloth coat.”

Compare the austerity of George and Laura Bush to what we’ve seen out of the Obamas, in just less than 2 years.  Barry is trying to outdo JFK in glamour and glitz. Remember those concerts and poetry readings that Jack and Jackie held in the WH? The Obamas are sponsoring a monthly concert series of their own. The difference is that during the Kennedy years, our economy wasn’t in the dire situation it’s in today. Barry and Michelle are trying to recreate the Camelot atmosphere of the Kennedy years and they just aren’t pulling it off.

The extravagance of the Obamas will not play well this fall with the democrats who are trying to win or hold onto their congressional and senatorial seats. We have to vote these people out and that will send a resounding message to Barry – well, we can hope so, anyway.
