Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

why didn't they just get in line with the other Democrat Obama Lovers and request a waiver from ObamaCare?

Lately it really is getting harder to figure out what Romney stands for. I can understand Obama's frustration in debating a guy that takes a different side of an issue with every breath. I can also see why Grover Norquist made this sock-puppet Romney sign an oath.
Did he sign it?

Red Tape, Hidden Taxes and Regulation

Red Tape, Hidden Taxes and Regulation

Business in the United States continues to struggle not only with the sluggish economy, but also the burdensome regulations imposed by the federal government. One study estimates put the total cost of federal regulation on business in the United States over $1 trillion. The staggering cost of regulation is a significant burden for American businesses, with small businesses bearing an especially heavy burden. The coming years will see a significant increase in regulation, as federal agencies write new regulations to implement ObamaCare and the Dodd-Frank financial services reform legislation, as well major environmental regulations being pushed by the EPA. Regulatory reform is essential to ensure these regulations that do not impose costs that exceed their benefits. Cost-benefit analysis, risk assessment, risk prioritization, and market-based incentives are fundamental components that should be included in any reform of the process. In a global marketplace, the United States cannot afford to hamper its economic growth with excessive and unnecessary regulations.

How many ridiculous excuses can the left come up with for Obama’s poor debate performance?

(Note: I sent a follow-up to Franke-Ruta clarifying the issues.)

An e-mail I sent today:

Garance Franke-Ruta
The Atlantic

Dear Miss Ruta:

You write that Obama did badly in the debate because he’s so preoccupied and worn down by being president that he has no energy or enthusiasm left for campaigning. This is one the silliest things I’ve read in politics recently. As anyone can see from watching him, the man is a campaigning machine. His main energies, his best energies, go into campaigning. Normally on the campaign trail, he is a shining star. Your thesis that the poor dear can’t campaign successfully because he is so exhausted by the cares of the presidency—and especially, as you emphasize, by the wars and other problems in the Mideast—will not fly. No. What he couldn’t do successfully, at least on this occasion, was debate against an intelligent, aggressive opponent. That’s a truth that it would be very difficult for you to acknowledge.

Sincerely,

Lawrence Auster
View from the Right

***

Some further thoughts. My guess is that Franke-Ruta’s excuse for Obama is an expression of her liberal mindset. To liberals, and especially to liberal women, war is something irrational and horrible that should never occur under any circumstances. Therefore to be responsible for the conduct of a war must break down any sensitive decent person. Because Franke-Ruta cannot imagine herself leading a war without being wrecked by it, she can’t imagine anyone else leading a war without being wrecked by it. So she blames Iraq and Afghanistan for Obama’s putative mental exhaution, even though, in reality, the U.S. involvement in Iraq has ended and Obama during his four years as president has put very, very little attention into those conflicts.

OBAMA THE BIG LIAR
Author Mel Maguire Categories Crime, Eric Holder, News, Politics, Posted By Mel Tags Posted By Mel, wordpress political blogs

Eric Holder did a ridiculous tap dance yesterday in a 20-minute meeting to ward off continued advances by Rep. Darrell Issa to get to the bottom of Operation Fast & Furious. After apparently agreeing to hand over some of the documents requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Holder showed up at a meeting yesterday empty-handed. He “briefed” Issa on the documents and explained that he had written directly to President Obama to request that he exercise his executive privilege to stop the documents from being released.

Today, Obama did exactly that.

What’s really astonishing is that the Democrats on the committee defended Holder and Obama and had the unmitigated gall to admonish Issa for his push to vote Holder in contempt of Congress. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) defended Holder by claiming that he’d come in some kind of “good faith” gesture to work something out with Congress (if the man was innocent, he’d have nothing to “work out” with anybody) and saying that Issa had been holding the Attorney General to an “impossible standard”(I’m sorry, but I wasn’t aware that expecting the AG to hand over documents related to a severely botched gun running operation that resulted in the death of a US Border Patrol agent was an impossible feat). Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) said she was quote “horrified” by Issa’s refusal to back down, characterized the move today as a political witch hunt and accused Republicans of “overruling” the President.

Oh, that'll get him elected for sure!!
Dumb frick, if Obama can get into office not showing his birth paper until AFTER he was sworn in as President of the USA. Then Romney's tax papers should not be a factor on if he gets elected in office or not. Believe me, the IRS does not care if Mitt is President of not, they will come after him, if he did anything wrong with his taxes.

Yes, she really said that. The goofy Democrat from New York actually accused Republicans of overruling the President. What do Democrats call what they did to Bush in 2003 when he warned of a looming economic crisis? Remember that, Maloney? I’m curious, do you remember your “symbolic” vote in 2007 against Bush’s plan for the surge in Iraq? Moreover, I’d like to know what in the hell you call the immediate proceedings against Richard Nixon when Democrats merely smelled the possibility of his involvement of a coverup of the break-in at the Watergate Hotel? Democrats were brutal in pursuing him and his recordings, and rightly so – he deserved to be impeached. Where is the equal desire to hold your own to account for their crimes?

He’s the President, not the monarch. In our Republic, if the president does something that isn’t acceptable under the law Congress has every right to hold him accountable. In fact, they have an obligation to the people to hold a president accountable when he does something wrong. To claim that it is wrong for Congress to “overrule” the President is tantamount to declaring Barack Obama the emperor.

Now, the emperor is as naked as the day he was born.

F&F was a failed experiment under Bush. The program, initially called Project Gunrunner, had a few agents working on it and a small budget; Bush notified Mexican officials, and when it was obvious that it wouldn’t work he put it on ice. Then, a few years later, here comes Obama – the op was brought back from the dead, given three times the manpower and money, and let loose to fail on an even bigger scale. This time, it resulted in untold numbers of high-powered firearms being allowed to cross the border into Mexico, untold numbers of deaths attributed to those weapons, and a dead US BP agent, Brian Terry, a hero in both life and death who was ordered to use non-lethal rounds against a well-armed drug cartel.

Obama promised that he would lead the most transparent administration in history. Lately, there have been egregious security leaks and the President and his staff have shrugged the leaks off as though they’re nothing. Now, we have potentially explosive evidence of a crime that goes all the way to the top, and the President is flexing his executive muscle to protect himself and his lying cronies. What are Democrats doing? Helping to defend him.

It seems he is bound and damned determined to go down in history as Emperor Obama, the Liar. He’ll do worse than Nixon and be excused by liberals bent on being “tolerant”. Just call him the Teflon President.

<quoted text>It's the same threatening intimidation that was thrown down over the O.J. Simpson case; "No justice; No peace!". Strange how they didn't get upset when Obama stole an election via the illegal [and taxpayer funded] machinations of ACORN, isn't it? That's how hate-speech law works; i.e., it's only a crime if it comes out of a white person's mouth. It was ok for the Black Panthers to put a bounty on Zimmerman's head but if a white group had made that same public announcement it would have been labeled "hate speech" and conspiracy to commit murder.
And if the Boy Messiah is not removed from office, this situation will only escalate.

All I have seen him do is go on tv talk shows. Can't speak w/o a teleprompter or other ways of help. Show us a clip from The Lion King, and say it was his birth video, and hide behide Big Bird. The man will go down in History alright, but not for all the right reasons.
