OBAMA IS CAESAR WITH AMERICANS AND NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN WITH EVERYONE ELSE.

Anybody wanting to lampoon the Obama presidency is out of luck — there is no way to top the real thing. From being outmaneuvered by Russia to erasing red lines in Syria and getting snubbed by Iran, September was the cruelest month.
That’s only half the bad news. For as small as the president looked abroad, he looked downright childish at home.

He is following his failure to negotiate successfully on the world stage with a refusal to negotiate at all at home. His message to Republicans on both the debt ceiling and ObamaCare is the same: nyet, nyet.

Call him confused about who the enemy is.

The dynamic is startling. The more the world pushes Barack Obama around, the more he pushes back at home. It reminds me of a Mort Sahl joke from the Cold War: Every time the Soviets lock up an American, we retaliate by locking up an American.

And so Vladimir Putin and his evil spawn in Syria and Iran can mess with Obama all day long, but House Speaker John Boehner can’t get the time of day from him.

Our president is Caesar here and Chamberlain there. That is the real Obama Doctrine.

It’s no way to run a superpower, but then that is the point. It is inconceivable that Obama is as INCOMPETENT as he looks.

It has to be intentional.

Seen that way, the method to his madness is frighteningly clear:

His abdication of global leadership is a direct corollary to his continuing expansion of the domestic state apparatus. No matter the world crisis, it takes a back seat, if it’s even allowed on the bus.

The stirring rhetoric about Assad being the new Hitler after he used chemical weapons came and went as though it was just a misunderstanding. In a flash, we became his partner in pretending that he’s going to surrender those weapons. Maybe the Butcher of Damascus will put a puppy under every Christmas tree, too.

Iran’s mad mullahs must get a hoot out of toying with our president. They kill our soldiers, export terrorism and threaten to nuke Israel, and our response is to grovel for talks. Obama plays the Washington Generals to their Harlem Globetrotters.

Back at home, each day brings more debt, more regulations on industry and more crackdowns on American institutions and individuals that buck the administration.

Last week alone, coal-fired plants and JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon both learned that Obama is their boss, and don’t forget it.

The ObamaCare MESS is especially telling. Most Americans still don’t want it and although there are obvious problems with key elements, Obama refuses to consider legislative changes.

He pushes executive power beyond the envelope to delay provisions and grant waivers, implementing the law at his leisure. But the bipartisan group of 75 senators who want to eliminate the medical-device tax because it’s a job and innovation killer can’t get a hearing.

Too slowly but surely, the public is growing wise.

Polls show Obama underwater on every major issue, including the economy, the debt and foreign policy. Gallup finds his approval stands at 44 percent, against 49 percent disapproval.

Here’s a finding that must drive him nuts. A Reason-Rupe poll asked people to compare Obama’s handling of foreign policy to George W. Bush’s. The results: 32 percent preferred Obama, 32 percent preferred Bush and 32 percent said they were the same.

Those numbers say Dear Leader is on a path to early lame-duckhood, which explains his choice to finish the week.

The “HAVE TELEPROMPTER, WILL TRAVEL” PRESIDENT hit the road to be with his base — a college crowd.

The rainbow PROPS of CHEERING ADOLESCENTS laughed as he made fun of Republicans and nodded approval as he stretched truth past the breaking point. He accused the GOP of trying to “blackmail” him and basked in the students’ adoration.

Meanwhile, Russia, Iran and Syria safely plot their next moves against America.

So, you can't name all of these middle class taxes in the ACA.
Why is that? Is it you don't know?
There are too many taxes to name, but the biggest ObamaKKKare hit on the middle class is loss of jobs and loss of medical insurance.

The DemoKKKrats wrote the ObamaKKKare bill which moved Congressional employees into the exchanges without providing for any premium support. Sure, they screwed up, but that's life. Obama has illegally ordered the premium support.
The dispute has its origin in the debate over the law in 2010. Republican senator Chuck Grassley suggested an amendment intended to make Democrats balk: Members of Congress and their staff would have to buy their insurance from the health-care exchanges.

Scared is your permanent state.
Let's start over, Lily. You can't that easily and flippantly get away with answering the serious questions I posed to you.

Do you deny major companies are cutting back to part-time?
If you do, prove it's not true.

Can you explain why some are exempt and others are not?
If yes, please explain.

Do you know how it will be implemented or how the IRS is going to manage it?
If yes, please tell the rest of us.

Do you know how much it's going to cost in the long run and who is going to pay for it?
If yes, show the figures.

If you aren't convinced the unknowns aren't scaring a lot of people, explain why the majority are against it.

Blame for Both Sides as Possible Government Shutdown Approaches

As in past congressional showdowns over fiscal issues, most Americans (57%) want the lawmakers they agree with on this issue to be more willing to compromise, even if it means passing a budget they disagree with. Just a third (33%) wants lawmakers to stand by their principles, even if the federal government shuts down.

...Among the public generally, 50% oppose the House Republicans’ proposal to cut off funding for the 2010 health care law as part of any budget agreement, while 38% favor this proposal. The goal of defunding Obamacare is widely shared among Republicans: Fully 87% of Tea Party Republicans and 61% of non-Tea Party Republicans support the proposal of House Republicans that any budget agreement include a cutoff of funding for the health care law.

However, there is a substantial divide in the Republican base over how far to go to achieve the goal of defunding the 2010 health care law. By 54% to 38%, non-Tea Party Republicans would like to see a compromise on the budget, even it is one they do not particularly agree with. Most Tea Party Republicans (71%) want lawmakers who share their views to stand by their principles, even it that leads to a government shutdown.

and not to forget...tea party republicans are in the minority.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock....To which country do you pledge your allegiance? The USA or Israel?

I pledge my allegiance to the United States of America. Period.

I do not support the disgusting actions of the Zionist leaders of Israel. That does not mean that I don't support the Jewish people. However, if the United States were to ever join in a UN resolution against Israel, I would stand behind her. You...not so much.

Not only do a lot of liberals trust Obama but trust Iran.

It's rather phenomenal - the dynamics of the world stage changing.

Perhaps this is how it's supposed to end. Too many people being far too trusting of enemies of the United States and the civilized world who have nuclear weapons waiting for the right opportunity.

And a naïve community organizer in the White House who truly believes he's just manipulating corrupt Chicago politicians.
