… When You Do a Presidential Speech from the Oval Office [#POTUS][#i.s.i.l.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 5th,2016

.. you sit at the President ‘  s desk , for crying out loud  ..

.. for this one , his Lordship decided to  play it cute . He put in  a podium in the Oval Office in front of his desk . I wonder , who  had the bright idea to put that damn thing in there ?? …

.. if you want to speak at a podium , then  it is like  that you want an audience . On a  subject such as national security , an appropriate setting usually can easily be arranged . With the world ‘ s most powerful military at you beck  and call , that should not be difficult ..

.. [h/T _- RealClearPolitics.com/video]..

.. [link] to the video of the speech  …

.. A president ‘  s credibility and his / her political capital are very critical . They expire over time ,  and they can be built up .  They  also can be frittered away if a POTUS is not careful about how they are used . Misusing the Oval Office for a speech is one way to blow it …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 9th,2016

.. and in 2016 , the shoe will be on the other foot …

.. any DemoCrap running for President in 2016 will have to deal with the policies and the legacy of Obama . They cannot avoid it . Even if they try to , they will have to deal with each other . Because , if they do not , the Republicans will make them do it …

… Greece is Losing Its Fight [#the Euro]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 12th,2015

.. the Greeks have done quite a bit to fix things ..

.. but they still have major problems with their ” friends ” in the Eurozone : …

.. [-] finance — their level of debt climbs ever higher . They never seem to change enough ..

.. [-] sustainability — the Greeks do not seem to be able to hold in with their reform programme for the long term . The frequent changes in government do not help …

.. [-] trust — Greece is not trusted by the powers – that – be in the Eurozone . These folks feel that no matter what they do , Greece is doomed ..

… Now He is Out [#JayBoy Carney]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 4th,2014

.. well , he finally gave up the ghost . Evidently , this one has been coming (under the radar) for some time …

.. considering his grave loss of credibility , he needed to go . JayBoy had lost his effectiveness and usefulness to the administration . Staying any longer would have made no sense ..

.. at least now , his deputy (and successor) Josh Earnest can make a fresh start . Earnest has almost the perfect name for the job , that is for sure . He almost has the ideal temperament , too . JoshBoy is a lot less arrogant than Carney is , by far . JayBoy has always been an arrogant ass when in the media , and as Press Secretary , he has gotten a great deal worse . At least now , he can hit the meat and potatoes circuit and make the bucks …

.. considering what may be coming down the road , JoshBoy Earnest is going to need all of the help that he can get …

… Credibility is the Coin of the Realm [White House Press Secretary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 20th,2014

.. Credibility is the Coin  of  the Realm ..

.. without it , you are done ..

.. a White  House Press Secretary needs to maintain his or her credibility with the Press Corpse . If they lose it , then they are useless to the Administration that he or she serves  …

.. JayBoy Carney should know this . Before taking this job (as White House Press Secretary) , he was Time Magazine ‘  s White House correspondent . He especially should know better , even more so considering who he is married to [Claire Shipman , ABC ‘ s  former White House correspondent] ..

.. Carney not only should resign , he must resign …
