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 ...

American Jews are giving up on Israel
The most worrying news that came out of the U.S. presidential elections was that American Jews seem to have lost interest in Israel.
Just 10 percent of American-Jewish voters said Israel was their highest priority when they went to the polls, according to a recent exit poll conducted by the pro-peace Israel lobby J Street. Nine out of 10 said domestic issues like job rates and health care were their top concerns. This is despite the fact that the Republicans and Jewish activists, many of whom are supporters of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, told countless horror stories about what they described as Barack Obama's plot to throw Israel to the Iranian wolves.

American Jews like lily and the late Jean are self-absorbed and feel safe from the prejudices that have decimated Jews for ages. So they don't give a damn about Israel, and instead suck up to the Palestinians to curry favor with the blacks. But they fail to realize that the blacks hate Jews with a passion and always will.

Well, well. Aunt Bitties second favorite news source got it wrong!!
CNN has obtained an email sent by a top aide of President Barack Obama, in which the aide discusses the Obama administration reaction to the attack on the U.S. posts in Benghazi, Libya. The actual email differs from how sources characterized it to two different media organizations.
The actual email from then-Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes appears to show that whomever leaked it did so in a way that made it appear that the White House primarily concerned with the State Department's desire to remove references and warnings about specific terrorist groups so as to not bring criticism to the department.
So, let me get this straight. Someone -- we don't know who -- leaked misleading information to ABC and the Weekly Standard, they ran it, other news organizations embraced it, we've had several days of "scandal" based on it, and the information wasn't true?
Impeach!!

Someone changed the crucial content of the CIA report and then passed it on as a lie to America and the rest of the world for weeks.

But I was talking about Obama saying he learned about the IRS targeting conservatives for the first time on Friday too when the rest of us did.

Presidents get daily briefings from all departments including the Treasury Department. The targeting had been going on for years. You mean to tell me not one person briefed him beforehand that this was happening or that it was about to become breaking news and he only learned about when the rest of us did?

Any other president would have been given a heads up. Why is Obama always so out of the loop?

Haaretz....ROTFLMAO...the propaganda arm of Moslems and crazy eyed democrats against Israel and America. J Street supports terrorists also. J Street always shows where it really stands on Israel in particular and terroristic violence in general, and it also supported terrorism by denying the role of Palestinian society in promoting it. J Street shows that it also believes the Arabs should feel free to publish anti-Semitic propaganda that could have come straight from Nazi Germany without fear of retaliation in kind from Jews (and Christians, who also are targeted by militant Islam)-Not on my watch-and now they have joined in with the Israel hating O'bama and his IRS goons and went after Jews and Christians who support Israel. J Street asked O'bama to go after the Orthodox Jews.

D.C. turns on Obama

The town is turning on President Obama – and this is very bad news for this White House.
Republicans have waited five years for the moment to put the screws to Obama – and they have one-third of all congressional committees on the case now. Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.



Buy-in from all three D.C. stakeholders is an essential ingredient for a good old fashioned Washington pile-on — so get ready for bad stories and public scolding to pile-up.

And, of course, I'm implying Obama might be right in the center of the loop and just pretending like he's been left out of the loop.

Of which the latter - being unlikely - points directly to the former.

D.C. Turns on Obama

By MIKE ALLEN and JIM VANDEHEI | 5/14/13 9:10 PM EDT

The town is turning on President Obama – and this is very bad news for this White House.

Republicans have waited five years for the moment to put the screws to Obama – and they have one-third of all congressional committees on the case now. Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.

Buy-in from all three D.C. stakeholders is an essential ingredient for a good old fashioned Washington pile-on — so get ready for bad stories and public scolding to pile-up.

Vernon Jordan, a close adviser to President Bill Clinton through his darkest days, told us:“It’s never all right if you’re the president. There is no smooth sailing. So now he has the turbulence, and this is the ultimate test of his leadership.” Jordan says Obama needs to do something dramatic on the IRS, and quick:“He needs to fire somebody. He needs action, not conversation.”

Obama’s aloof mien and holier-than-thou rhetoric have left him with little reservoir of good will, even among Democrats. And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be.

This White House’s instinctive petulance, arrogance and defensiveness have all worked together to isolate Obama at a time when he most needs a support system.“It feel like they don’t know what they’re here to do,” a former senior Obama administration official said.“When there’s no narrative, stuff like this consumes you.”

Republican outrage is predictable, maybe even manageable. Democratic outrage is not.

The dam of solid Democratic solidarity has collapsed, starting with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd’s weekend scolding of the White House over Benghazi, then gushing with the news the Justice Department had sucked-up an absurdly broad swath of Associated Press phone records.

Democrats are privately befuddled by the White House’s flat-footed handling of this P.R. and legal mess, blaming a combination of bad timing, hubris and communications ineptitude. The most charitable defense offered up on background is that Obama staffers are scandal virgins, unaccustomed to dealing with a rabid press.

Chris Lehane, who spent so much time managing scandals in the 1990s that it inspired him to write a textbook on managing them, is among the contingent of Clinton-era scandal hands that thinks the Obama team has botched its second-term image.“One cannot get caught up with chasing news cycles in a crisis, as that is a prescription for putting out inaccurate information that does not withstand scrutiny or the test of time,” said Lehane, whose book is titled “Masters of Disaster.”

It doesn't matter who investigated the editing first and who reported it second. The liberal media and the conservative media are astonishingly on the the same page and both want the same answers now.

There will always be the die hard loyalists but the main stream media are slowly but surely changing their propagandist status to legitimate journalists. Better late than never.

He might have gotten "thru" with two of them if the media were still protecting him and doing his bidding.

But the Benghazi coverup has been thoroughly exposed for the coverup it was in the heat of an election and in the wake of four dead Americans.

And the IRS targeting has enraged even the most liberal of liberals in the press and in Congress.

The media are also now finding out what it feels like to be victimized themselves by abuse of power.

Where it goes from here is anyone's guess. But the media, both conservative and liberal, are in full mode to investigate and get some answers and Congress, both liberal and conservative, are both wanting to get to the bottom of the Benghazi discrepencies.

No one is disputing the government's right to review journalists. The problem is the scope and application.

Perhaps you might want to listen to Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC. She'll clarify it for you.

So what if the NAACP is audited? The only advancement that has been done by the racist Julian Bond (he use to be a hero until he took a life ride on the bigot train) is his own. So what if Greenpeace is audited? So what? Again, look at the scope and application.

As for Benghazi's emails. It would be easy to clear up....IF the president would order the release of all of them. No more speculation, no more pesky leaks. I'm not holding my breath.
