… Can the ObamaCraps quit Screwing Around ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 23rd,2013

.. POTUS did not enroll in ObamaCrapCare .

.. his aides keep saying that he did .

.. so , you dummies , quit the damn lying !

.. Presidents , VPs , senior Admin officials , and others receive their health care through the military services , to be specific Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital . They have the best health care that rivals anything anywhere in the world .

.. Also , when necessary , you are in D.C. . Baltimore is only 40 miles away , which means Johns Hopkins University and its world famous medical school and medical center . George Washington University is literally on the doorsteps of the District , less than a mile from the White House itself . It itself has a superb medical school (and medical center) .

.. So , cut the crap , you idiots . POTUS does not need to sign up for any ObamaCrapCare coverage . His family is covered , likewise …

… I do Not Often Agree with Politifact [on ObamaCrapCare whopper] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 14th,2013

.. but , in this case , I do .

.. How POTUS could have gotten himself caught in this megawhopper is beyond me . He had to know that the developing policy would not allow him to keep his promise .

.. ” If You Want to Keep Your Doctor , You can . Period . ” Jeezus , to be honest , it is not just the Whopper of the Year . It is the MegaWhopper of the Decade . The ObamaCraps should have known better . Once they knew that they could not keep this promise , or others like it , they should have changed course , and quick . They should not have lied through their teeth the way that they did …

… Superb Point by Dr. Krauthammer [Iran and the ” Bomb “] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 26th,2013

… this [point] was brought up , I believe , by Dr. Charles Krauthammer on “Special Report with Bret Baier” the other night .

.. It is outstanding . The more I think about the Iran – nukes deal , the more that I hate the damn thing . And the more that it smells and looks like a modern – day version of Munich from September 1938 .

… Quit the Excuses , POTUS !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 19th,2013

.. you already have a big enough credibility problem as it is .

.. News Item : the Republican party is opposed to ObamaCrapCare . It always has been . When the original bill was being considered , what was the response of the Administration and the DemoCraps ? The DummyCraps did not want any opposition suggestions . They ignored the GOP suggestions , poo – pooed them , and tossed them aside , as if they did not matter , not one whit . So , when you get supercharged opposition to the implementation of ObamaCrapCare , what did you expect ? Nothing ? You got what you should have expected . Full scale and vehement and unswerving opposition . Duhhhh !! ..

.. If an opposition party is completely and totally opposed to your policy , they will do what anyone would expect . O – P – P – O -S – I – T – I – O – N . So what else did you expect ? Contributions to the cause ? No thanks . Especially when you dismiss suggestions for improvements out of hand .

.. He does not understand the private sector , at all . That is not surprising , considering the current First Idiot never once held a job in the private sector . One that made a payroll . Dealt with the government on regulations and their effect . and Many other  things …

… the Dirty Little Secret [ShutDown Theatre] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 10th,2013

.. The presidency is a “bully pulpit,” said Teddy Roosevelt. “For Roosevelt, ‘bully’ was an adjective meaning ‘excellent’ or ‘first-rate’ — not the noun ‘bully’ (‘a blustering browbeating person’) that’s so common today,” the Merriam-Webster dictionary explains.
.. For Barack Obama, “bully” has the more common meaning.That means he is a skunk

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

… POTUS the skunk … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

.. To make the reality of the “shutdown” comport with his apocalyptic rhetoric, President Obama is inflicting as much pain as he can on ordinary Americans.He’s ordered all national parks closed — including more than 100 privately staffed parks that make money for the government.

.. It is one thing to close a park for lack of staff, to prevent injury to visitors or damage to the property. It’s quite another to spend more money to prevent people from viewing monuments when neither the people nor the monuments are at risk.

*When Wesley Pruden of the Washington Times asked a Park Service ranger why the Park Service tried to block access to George Washington’s home — which is owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, not the government — the ranger replied: “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”*Park Police physically removed patrons and staff from the privately managed Claude Moore Colonial Farm, which sits on federal land . The fact is that the non – profit group that runs the farm has not taken a dime of federal money since 1980.

*On the National Mall in Washington D.C., rangers blocked access to and shooed visitors away from the monuments and memorials.
*In South Dakota, the Park Service tried to block off highway viewing areas of Mt. Rushmore.
*In Nevada, people who own homes on federal land near Lake Mead have been denied access to them.
*In Florida, the Park Service declared 1,100 square miles of ocean off limits to fishermen.

.. It makes no sense to close profit – making businesses unaffected by the budget dispute in Washington, which is why nothing like this was ever done during the 17 previous “shutdowns” since 1977.That so many Park police are available to bully law abiding Americans suggests there are quite a few more “nonessential” employees who ought to have been furloughed.

.. POTUS has the ability to choose what is needed , and what is not . He or she can choose , with considerable latitude , what is “essential” and what is not essential . Mr. Obama’s choices are making it clear that he is acting out of spite. How sick and disgusting is that .

*The commissaries (grocery stores) on military bases have been closed . However , the golf course at Andrews Air Force Base , where Mr. Obama often plays , is open. So is the presidential retreat at Camp David.
*Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel tacitly admitted the furloughs last week of DoD civilians were for show when he announced Saturday most of the workers would be recalled.

.. The Republican-controlled House has passed eight bills so far to fund portions of the government, including all the national parks, but the Democrat-controlled Senate has refused to pass any of them. For the GOP to propose funding the government “piecemeal” is “blackmail,” CNN’s Candy Crowley said Sunday. She either does not know — or doesn’t want you to know — that prior to Barack Obama’s presidency, it was the well-established practice of Congress to fund the government in 13 different appropriations bills . Each bill deals with a different subject area , thus allowing each to be properly overseen and dealt with in an “efficient” manner . Efficiency is in the manner of the beholder , though , and Congress could be a whole lot more efficient .

.. To be honest , it ‘ s budget process is a broken mess , in drastic need of an overhaul . There should be penalties for not achieving a budget , and especially for not achieving a balanced budget . As big a mess as this setup is , Congress is looking like geniuses , in comparison to the Obama White House ..

.. With this President , never before has a president deliberately tried to hurt Americans . It is news story that the media should cover, not cover up.

.. Barack Obama is a petulant child , and worse yet , an incompetent thug.

.. He acted to make the budget sequester seem to be more painful than it really is . Doing so , he acted to cancel White House tours . Really adult move , there , POTUS . However , he continued to spend lavishly on himself . He also ordered the FAA to delay flights , until it caused a colossal mess for travellers . “Suddenly,” the FAA “found” money in its “reserve fund” to bring back the needed personnel …

.. His stormtrooper tactics backfired then. They are backfiring again now.

… POTUS , It is You Who are Wrong …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 18th,2013

.. I am still amazed at POTUS and his hubris and his degree of arrogance . He is the supreme narcissist . He thinks that he is the smartest person “on the block,” and that he is right , and that we , the American People are wrong on ObamaCrapCare …

.. We are right on ObamaCrapCare . We were sold a fraudulent bill of goods , when the DemoCraps said that we would actually

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the University of Southern California (Video of the speech) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

like this “piece of crap.” When you add mandates , it is simple , from the law of supply and demand . You add many more consumers , and desensitize people from the cost of what they are paying for . What could POTUS and the DemoCraps have been thinking ??

.. Now , the ObamaCrap supporters realize that they have been had . The employers are getting hammered , so they are cutting working hours . We are becoming more and more of a part – time economy , and many union workers and members are getting hit as a result . The union workers are screaming bloody murder , not realizing the bill that they championed had consequences . Those consequences have come back to bite them in the butt , and very , very badly .

 

.. The doctors and the hospitals realize that they were had . They were fairly big supporters of ObamaCrapCare , from the start . POTUS and the DemoCraps needed their support to even have a chance of passing their bill . The docs and the hospitals were promised a payment “fix” to help them out of their revenue predicament . And guess what ? They were lied to . There was no “doctor fix” in ObamaCrapCare at all . The doctors and the hospitals are in the same reimbursement fix that they have always been in , except now things are worse , and political control has diffused . After what they did passing O.C.C. , the G.O.P. is in no mood to help the doctors and the hospitals , unless they are able to get something politically in exchange . And , it will cost them big .

.. Tort reform is coming . Whether POTUS and his trial – lawyer bar buddies like it or not . Too many businesses and industries have been hurt by the blackmail and extortion tactics of the plaintiff ‘ s bar . The doctors , in particular , have learned a savage lesson from getting into bed with the trial lawyers on O.C.C. . Not again . This time , they will help the good guys and good gals in fighting back . The plaintiffs bar extortionists will eventually be brought to heel . The medical malpractice bar has also , in particular , cost our economy far too much money , and has hurt far too many people . They also need to be brought back into line .

.. POTUS , it is YOU who are wrong ..

… Once Again , Spot On [Charles Krauthammer , on POTUS] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 17th,2013

.. POTUS should get some kind of award for the bad taste stunt of the year . With all of the stuff going on in D.C. , POTUS picks one hell of a bad time to deliver a hyper – partisan speech . Right in the middle of an on-going crisis , no less .

.. Dr. Charles Krauthammer has , in his usual masterful and succinct style , nailed him for it …

[link] [h/t–RealClearPolitics]

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: The president in that speech was back to hyper-partisan mode, slashing attack on Republicans. At one point he is speaking of the Republicans, he said, ‘and some of them are decent.’ Quite a remarkable thing for a president to say if you expect any cooperation. And to do this within minutes of 13 Naval employees, brave Americans lying dead, I thought was in extremely bad taste. He could have waited until tomorrow. It isn’t as if this is a holy anniversary, he could have spoken later in the week which is the week that marks the fifth year of the crisis.

And on Syria, he said, having dealt with the Syrian issue, which is another farce. He has opened up a can of worms. There is no way we’re going to disarm Syria. This is a fig leaf, it’s nothing more.

[link] [h/t-Real Clear Politics]

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Although ultimately our success will depend on all the innovation and hard work of our private sector, all the grit and resilience of the American people, government is going to have a critical role in making sure we have an education system that prepares our children and our workers for a global economy. The budget Congress passes will determine whether we can hire more workers to upgrade our transportation and communications networks or fund the kinds of research and development that have always kept America on the cutting edge. So what happens here in Washington makes a difference. What happens up on Capitol Hill will help determine not only the pace of our growth, but also the quality of jobs, the quality of opportunity, for this generation and future generations.

The problem is, at the moment, Republicans in Congress don’t seem to be focused on how to grow the economy and build the middle class. I say ‘at the moment’ because I am still hoping that a light bulb goes off here. So far, their budget ideas revolve primarily around even deeper cuts to education. Even deeper cuts that would gut the scientific research and development. Even deeper cuts to America’s infrastructure investment. Our roads, bridges, schools, and energy grid. These are not the policies that would grow the economy faster. They are not the policies that would help grow the middle class. In fact, they do the opposite.

… As Usual , POTUS is the Toothless Tiger [Mutt and Jeff] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 15th,2013

.. when you are trying to dig yourself out of a diplomatic mess , you generally want to try to make sure that your agreement is believable and credible . Evidently , Mutt and Jeff (POTUS and SecState) have come up with a whopper of a stinker . They think that this so – called agreement covering Syria and its chemical weapons , involving the Assad government and Russia , is anything remotely believable and credible ?

.. Hell , no . It is for several reasons :

[-] lack of consistent policy — our National Command Authority is supposed to set a reasonable idea of policy in an area . It may not be ideal , but it helps to be consistent . POTUS ‘ entire idea of foreign policy is grossly inconsistent , at best …

[-] lack of consistent message — even when there is some idea of a policy , the message behind that policy is , at best , a disorganized muddled mess . That is no way to communicate to either friends or foes . Both need to understand what is going on …

[-] lack of leadership — No , you do not lead from behind . You lead from the Front , you damn idiots . You have to set policy , communicate it , and take responsibility for it …

[-] lack of resolution — even when things get ” dark and grey , ” you stick to your guns . Do not be a ” Wuss …. ”

Bolton: Syrian Pact ‘Will Die a Death by a Thousand Cuts’

Saturday, 14 Sep 2013 07:47 PM

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton predicted on Saturday that the agreement reached between the United States and Russia on destroying Syria’s chemical weapons “will die a death by a thousand cuts.”

Syrian President Bashar Assad “is required to make his initial declaration on Friday,” Bolton, a senior fellow with the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, told Fox News. “It’ll slip a few days, or maybe a few more. Maybe the first declaration won’t be full and complete, and it’ll have to be amended. And, then, it’ll have to be amended again.

“You can see the impact of this as time goes on, and I think that’s exactly what the strategy is.”

Urgent: Who is Right on Syria – Obama or Putin? Vote in Urgent Poll

Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced the agreement earlier Saturday after three days of talks in Geneva.

The agreement requires Syria to submit a “comprehensive listing” of its chemical weapons stockpiles within a week. Arms inspectors must be on the ground in Syria by November, with the goal of eliminating the country’s chemical weapons by the middle of next year.

But the accord contains nothing about the potential use of force if Syria fails to comply — and Kerry said that no pre-agreement existed on what action the U.N. Security Council might take if Syria failed to comply with the plan.

“One of the fine ironies here is that we have agreed with Russia, which has been in violation itself of the Chemical Weapons Convention since the treaty came into force [in 1993],” Bolton told Fox. “Most experts agree that Russia did not make its own full and complete declaration of its chemical weapons stockpiles in the mid-1990s, and many believe that Russia has been in violation of the treaty, developing new generations of chemical weapons.

“So the notion that Russia is going to vouch for Bashar al-Assad is almost comical,” he concluded. “You can’t make this stuff up.”

Further, he attacked some of the language in the agreement.

“It says that the Security Council will take measures ‘commensurate’ with the violations,” Bolton noted. “Well, that word means anything you want it to mean — and you can bet that in a debate in the Security Council, it will go on for quite some time.”

But, more importantly, President Barack Obama has been greatly helped by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The president is very grateful to President Putin. He got him out of an impossible dilemma,” Bolton said. “I don’t think the president himself wants to use force. Now, he will never have to — and he himself said, the longer time goes by from the August 21 use of chemical weapons, the harder it would be to generate the emotion necessary to get the support for the use of force.”

The White House has said that more than 1,400 people, including over 400 children, were killed in the chemical weapons attacks on rebel-held suburbs of Damascus on Aug. 21. The Obama administration has since shown gruesome pictures to Congress of Syrians suffering and dying from the attacks in making its case for military strikes.

Urgent: Who is Right on Syria – Obama or Putin? Vote in Urgent Poll

“The idea that you couldn’t get the support in Congress to use force against Assad after those pictures means that, nonetheless, you’ll be able to get congressional approval because Syria violated this agreement?” Bolton asked. “It’s a delusion — and so is [Obama’s] Syria policy generally.”

[-] change the responsible party for the chem weapons — you really want to give the responsible party for disarmament to Russia ? Are you nuts ? The U.N. is hardly any better . Anyone think that Assad has been taking notes from Sadly Insane on his monkeyshines in Iraq , especially with a DemoCrap semi – wus [Clinton] in the White House ..

[-] keep the U.S. Navy on station in the eastern Med — Syria is a coastal nation . Make Lebanon understand that even an attempt to lock on any , repeat ANY U.S. aircraft will be met with instant retaliation , and the relevant missiles and radar batteries will cease to exist , no matter where they are located …

[-] put a date certain for compliance , and make it reasonably short — do not let Assad and Putin play anymore diplomatic stalling tactics , well , anymore than they have already . They will try . For once , do not be a wus . Stand up to them .

[-] keep DarkStars , Predators , and other drones on station , observing what is going on — if locked on , see third item for what will happen if they do so …

… [On Congressional Authorization] Oh , Yes you do !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 9th,2013

.. It seems that the dummies in the ObamaCrap White House continue to hem and haw over their prospects in the Syria operation . Well , guys and gals , you had better wise up .

.. Before having sought Congress ‘ blessing , as well as political cover , BHO & co certainly had the legal , as well as constitutional authority to make the Syria operation . BHO is commander-in-chief . He can make that order , if he so so chose . Presidents have quite a bit of authority over the war – making power in our country . They do not have all of it .

.. The political cover that Congress ‘ approval would give would also give the ObamaCraps the ability to cajole the

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

… POTUS … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Congresscritters and Senators to cough up the $$ to pay the bills for the operation(s) . However , it remains for POTUS to actually make the case . He has not done so , as of yet .

.. Going to Congress changes things . It would create a constitutional crisis of the first order if BHO ordered our military into action , while Congress affirmatively votes down the operation in either or both Houses . It would completely strip Obama of moral authority to mount the operation . It would also cause the calls for his impeachment to continue to mount , and potentially even in his own party . Going to the ‘ Hill changes the game , folks .

.. Idiocy such as this [link] in the Hill does POTUS no good . It makes his ability to make his case all that much harder . Congress is a co – equal branch of our government . BHO seems not to act like that , that he is sovereign over them , and his word is law .

.. WRONG !!

.. He is not . He is the Chief Executive , and head of the Executive Branch . He is not the First Dictator . Anyone who would have such pretentions should quit , or be booted out  of the door , in a flash . Congress and the Supreme Court are also parts of co – equal branches . People would really perceive the danger to their liberties if anyone were acting in such a way like this .

.. If even one congressional DemoCrap comes out , and starts making noises about the “I” word , then you-know-who is in deep and dire trouble . He would deserve it , too ….

… POTUS should recall Congress …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 3rd,2013

.. not yesterday . not two days ago . Now !

.. If the potential of an attack on Syria is important enough that he would seek Congressional authorization , then he should act to recall Congress . He should recall them without delay …

POTUS should recall Congress

.. I do not think that he has the guts , but he should take the lead .

.. When you give the orders to engage the military , you cannot assume that things will be simple . They never are . You take an action to send in missiles , and then someone else will react . You cannot anticipate their reaction . Especially with the current crowd , you really cannot be sure how other countries will react .

.. POTUS also has to act to make the case . Congress will act to support him . They are not a bunch of wussies , unlike him . They will act to support him . It takes courage and leadership , neither of which this current administration has exhibited . It also takes trust . The ObamaCraps have a real problem with the trust thing . They may have the powers and the duties of the office , but they are not really all that trusted with them .

.. POTUS should remember that he is just the head of one of three co – equal branches of government . POTUS is not a dictator . Just because he says boo , things do not happen automatically like people are a bunch of automatons . He has to lead .

.. There will be a debate . Sooner would be preferable to later . Before the act would be definitely preferred to after the act . The debate will come , like it or not . Honesty is preferrable . Do not lie about things . Just do not let things all hang out , either .

Given the intelligence threats that we face on a world wide scale , it would make sense to do it . Try to do a better job of keeping it secret , though .

… Nice Touch , Brit ! [Hume Commens on Capital vs Obama] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 31st,2013

.. Brit Hume has always been a master wordsmith . Even when he was just a working class corresponedent at the White House for ABC Snooze , it was always entertaining to watch him go at it with Wilhelm der Fibmeister [Bill Clinton] . Not many people could pin Mr . Bill down that easily , or , better yet , piss Wilhelm off the way Brit does . But he did .

.. Brit Hume was evidently one of Roger Ailes ‘ first choices to come on board at Fox News when they opened shop in the summer of 1996 . He not only appreciated his conservative philosophy , but his professionalism . Also , Ailes knew that Brit was one of Jack Anderson ‘ s “boys,” and was also a disciple of Bob Novak . It meant that he would be a top – flight professional , an excellent “shoe – leather” beat reporter , and would keep it up , no matter how difficult the target or the issue .

.. Barack Obama is no different . Brit spent 15 years as the anchor of Special Report on FoxNewsChannel , and did a fabulous job , in my opinion . He is even more dangerous , now , as FoxNews ‘ Anchor Emeritus and Senior Commentator . He gets to be a commentator , doing what he does best , and duke it out with other people on the issues .

.. In the case with this video , Brit takes POTUS to school , and gives him a world class spanking . Brit reminds you-know-who that before you can distribute or , even , redistribute capital , you have to create it , first . A large part of that is creating the conditions to encourage capital formation . It includes human capital (people and their educations) , along with physical capital (physical investments) , and financial capital (investment $$) . And Obama is a world – class loser at that .

… The Presidential Bully Pulpit is …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 20th,2013

.. to help calm down a situation , not to pour gasoline on a fire .

.. For God ‘ s Sake , has not Barack Obama understood the meaning of what it is to be President , and the powers of his office that he has at his command . My God , what is needed now is a calming voice , and leadership skill . What do we get ? Gasoline on a fire , and a flamethrower . Nice Going , Dumb Dumb .

..President Obama expanded on the acquittal of George Zimmerman at a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room today, noting that he once said he could have had a son like Trayvon Martin but now revising that to “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”

“I want to make sure that once again I send my thoughts and prayers, as well as Michelle’s, to the family of Trayvon Martin,” Obama said in the halting, teleprompter-less statement, where he lauded Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin for the “incredible grace and dignity with which they’ve dealt with the entire situation.”

.. Lawyer Obama said he wouldn’t discuss arguments about the legal side of the case: “I’ll let all the legal analysts and talking heads address those issues,” he said, stressing that the legal process worked in a “professional manner” as it should. “In a case such as this, reasonable doubt is relevant,” he added. “…Once the jury has spoken, that’s how our system works.” He said that it was critical to keep in mind “the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.”

“There are very few African-American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store — that includes me,” Obama said, adding the examples of hearing car doors lock when you walk onto a block or seeing a woman “clutch her purse nervously and holding her breath” when a black man gets in an elevator.

This affects, he said, “how the African-American community interprets what happened one night in Florida.”

“There is a history racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws, everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws. And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case,” the president continued. “This isn’t to say that the African-American community is naive about the fact that African-American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system, that they’re disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence. It’s not to make excuses for that fact.”

“The fact that a lot of African-American boys are painted with a broad brush and the excuses given, ‘Well, there are these statistics out there that show that African-American boys are more violent,’ using that as an excuse to then see sons treated differently causes pain.”

“Statistically, somebody like Trayvon Martin was probably, statistically, more likely to be shot by a peer than he was by somebody else,” Obama acknowledged. “Folks understand the challenges that exist for African-American boys; they get frustrated if they feel that there’s no context for it.”

If Trayvon was a white teen, he said, “both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”

Obama called protests and vigils in the wake of the verdict “understandable.”

“If I see any violence, then I will remind folks that that dishonors what happened to Trayvon Martin and his family,” he said.

The president said he was “bouncing around” some ideas with his staff, but hadn’t concocted some sort of “five-point plan” to address the trial aftermath.

He warned that the attorney general’s review of the case in a civil-rights capacity at the Justice Department may not yield the charges some seek. “I know that Eric Holder is reviewing what happened down there, but I think it’s important for people to have some clear expectations here,” he said. “Traditionally, these are issues of state and local government.”

“That doesn’t mean, though, that as a nation we can’t do some things that I think would be productive.”

Obama suggested more law enforcement training “to reduce the kind of mistrust in the system that sometimes currently exists” and studying laws that could be “designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of altercations and confrontations and tragedies that we saw in the Florida case, rather than diffuse potential altercations.”

He stressed that Stand Your Ground was not invoked as a defense in the Zimmerman case. “On the other hand, if we’re sending a message as a society in our communities that someone who is armed potentially has the right to use those firearms, even if there’s a way for them to exit from a situation, is that really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order that we’d like to see?”

“I just ask people to consider, if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk? And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman, who had followed him in a car, because he felt threatened?” Obama continued. And if the answer to that question is at least ambiguous, then it seems to me that we might want to examine those kinds of laws.”

He also suggested convening panels composed of clergy, celebrities, and athletes to help kids who are “getting a lot of negative reinforcement” to “give them the sense that their country cares about them.”

Obama even took a dig at his own beer summit in calling for “soul searching” as the nation tries to have a conversation on race.

“I haven’t seen that be particularly productive when, you know, politicians try to organize conversations,” he said.

“Each successive generation seems to be making progress in changing attitudes when it comes to race,” Obama said, noting his daughters’ interactions with their friends. “They’re better than we are, they’re better than we were on these issues.”

“We should also have confidence that kids these days, I think, have more sense than we did back then and certainly more than our parents did or our grandparents did, and that along this long and difficult journey, you know, we’re becoming a more perfect union, not a perfect union, but a more perfect union.”

..No Way that This Stuff is Tolerated …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 30th,2013

.. I am amazed at the stuff that the ObamaCrap Administration has been trying to get

away with . You would have thought that they would have studied previous White House

playbooks , and talked to other people . It at least would have given them ideas on

what NOT to do  . but NOOOOO . We are ObamaCrats . We are superior to them . We walk on

water . We are better than them .

.. Yeah , riiiggghhht ! Guess what , Dummies ? Those Mistakes have been made before .

This time , you idiots have made them , and new versions of old ones . Some real honeys

, to be sure . Abusing opponents with the I.R.S. is a moldy oldy . But , going after

the media . Making FoxNewsChannel sympathetic ! Waaay to go , you stupid fools .

.. Nice Going . You are likely going to do damage to Dems in the Senate . Most likely ,

any chance of gaining the House are now gone . More likely , the DummyCrats are going

to lose seats in both chambers . Maybe even the Senate , if things keep going . DuuuH

!!

.. Any other White House (even the Clintonoids) , and these idiots would be out the

door . In a dignified manner , yes , but they would be gone . It is incredible that the

ObamaCraps are that arrogant . But , they are , and that is going to cause incalculable

political and financial damage to them . Stupid !!!!
