What Obama still hasn't figured out about being president
For a week leading up to the president’s Tuesday address, White House advisers were trying out yet another new catchphrase, telling any reporter they could find that President Barack Obama had discovered he had “a phone and a pen,” and he intended to use them in the year ahead. Up until now, apparently, the president has been relying on the quill and telegraph Rutherford B. Hayes left behind, so this is kind of a breakthrough.
This pen-and-phone business represents a pretty stunning admission from a president five years into his term – that he and his senior aides are still groping about for ways to wield the power of the office, and that they have essentially given up on legislating. Their latest strategy holds that, since a small number of Republican lawmakers have effectively decided to thwart the public will, Obama must resort to doing the things he can do on his own, mainly by signing executive orders and making lots of calls.
In an ABC News poll released last weekend, a few days before Obama’s address, only 37 percent of voters said they had confidence in Obama to make the right decisions, compared with 61 percent when he took office. Only 47 percent said he understands the problems of ordinary Americans. In other words, Obama isn’t tanking simply because nihilistic conservatives are bent on blocking his policies. Rather, conservatives can get away with blocking his policies because the voters aren’t persuaded they’ll work.

If the Magic Negro was a leader, he would stand in front and lead instead of hiding behind Valerie Jarret and his half-black skin.

Dumbwaiter saw that as of Jan 1, his cable bill increased from $60 to $90 dollars a month.
He shopped around & signed up with Direct TV & the same coverage is only $70.00 a month.
Did Direct TV save money & did it lower his monthly bills?
Dumbwaiter is arguing it didn't because his monthly bills went up $10.00. But they would have gone up $30 if he did not change. So yes, the change saved him money & lowered his bills.
Dumbwaiter is just dumber than sh*t.

Honestly, I think they have. Their first inclination though, as we see over and over, is to lower the standards and amend the curriculum for everyone else. With obvious results.
It's a common theme, accommodate the underachievers and punish the best and brightest.

Refer to my response posted yesterday.
By the way, I've never seen any so-called "liberal" fraud post any part of the Constitution here. I'm the only person posting text from the Cosntitution.
Since the Constitution was written so the average person can easily read and understand it, why do you think the Constitution needs interpretation?
How about you post the text from the Constitution you have a problem understanding and you need someone to interpret it for you.
Yesterday in your garbled evasive dance you never denied hating ANY of these American components, you merely tried to redefine them. So hereafter I'm assuming its fair to hold you accountable for this position, which is, you hate almost everything about America. For some bizarre reason, in your convoluted mind you determine this to be a form of patriotism.
Sane people consider you a terrorist.

on a positive note..
First Lady Michelle Obama was in San Francisco Thursday for the start of a two-day visit for Democratic fundraisers including a visit with House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco).
Obama's Bay Area visit comes a day after she visited Los Angeles.
Her first stop was a private Democratic National Committee roundtable that shut down the streets near Pacific Avenue and Montgomery Street until about 4:30 p.m.
It appeared the event was held at Cotogna restaurant at 490 Pacific Ave.
A small crowd of onlookers gathered behind police blocking off the intersection, including a group of women who said they worked nearby and had waited about an hour to catch a glimpse of the first lady.
She also walked in a Public Nudity Parade and Twerked a functioning Fire Hydrant for photographers.

That Fire Hydrant was later roped off with a placard describing it as the Presidential Bidet.

Signs the Progressive 'you don't need to save for your retirement' economy is on fire!

Liquid Asset Poverty Rate:
"Percentage of households without sufficient liquid assets to subsist at the poverty level for three months in the absence of income, 2011.

Liquid assets are those that are held in cash or can be liquidated quickly: bank accounts and other interest-earning assets; and equity in stocks, mutual funds and retirement accounts (IRAs, 401(k)s and KEOGH accounts). Liquid assets exclude equity in businesses, vehicles, homes and other real estate.

The threshold used to determine the liquid asset poverty rate varies by family size. A family of four with liquid assets less than $5,887 in 2013 is liquid asset poor."

What's the status of the United States as a Nation?
43.5 percent of Americans are considered to be LIQUID ASSET POOR.

Energy Storage for Wind Turbine and Solar Backup is extremely problematic. How many L-Ion batteries needed to run NY through the night or during the windless day? How many Molten Salt Reservoirs? How much real estate needed and where and at what cost?
The logistics and costs become bewildering and add to this the very real probability of cost overruns, runaway politics and delays that *ALWAYS* follow these sorts of massive municipal boondoggles(like the Boston Freeway, for example) or like the lingering bitching about post-Sandy's broken promises, etc., blah, blah, blah...
Just as brevity is the soul of wit, simplicity is the core of good public policy.
But Liberals abhor simplicity because it doesn't allow for political pandering and manipulation of the ignorant masses.
If all else fails.....muddy the water..
