oh yeah, i forget Executive Orders.
Obama will be laughing his ass off. oh wait....he already is.
You've got it backwards. Its more like the ass is laughing right after talking about an American being beheaded.

But the problem isn't that the boy spends most of his time in short pants, its that once in awhile the press asks him questions. And the press bothers him when he is on vacation. The One is whining about it.

And, the big picture problem for most media elites is that they were certain Obama would be far more than just the first black president but that he would be one of this nation's greatest presidents. He would redeem all of America's many sins. Any evidence to the contrary ruins that vision, and once in awhile reality smacks them right between the eyes and they have to see The One for the failure that he is..

The One is upset about the "optics," (Obamaspeak about his looking like the buffoon he is when the media actually shows him laughing like at Mandela's funeral with the selfies with the blonde). It is soooooo annoying.

Obumbles is still voting “present,” like he did in the Senate for 143 days, one of his only jobs besides community agitator and leader of the Choom Gang.

Obama on August 29th:“We are not taking military action to solve the Ukrainian problem... It is not in the cards for us to see a military confrontation between Russia and the United States in this region. Keep in mind, however, that I'm about to go to a NATO conference. Ukraine is not a member of NATO, but a number of those states that are close by are. And we take our Article Five commitments to defend each other very seriously.”

If you were the Estonian government, would you actually be reassured by that? And if you were Putin, if you were Putin sitting in the Kremlin, and you just wanted to mess with Obama, wouldn't you be slightly ever-so-tempted just to invade Estonia, just to see whether Obama follows through on that Article Five thing?

Putin on September 5th: On Friday morning, less than 48 hours after President Obama delivered a speech in Estonia warning that Russian aggression against Estonia could trigger war with the US and NATO, Russian security forces have seized an officer with Estonia's state security bureau at gunpoint and taken him into Russia.

From Benghazi to the Baltic, the world has the measure of Obama. The only people who don't are America's besotted, parochial elite and the deluded electorate who made this man "leader of the free world".

But Obama gets his way on this because the press isn't about to cry "After ALL we've done for him!" This is just another case of Obama throwing whomever he wants under the bus solely because he is Barack Hussein Obama. If his grandmother ("a typical white woman") wasn't exempt from the bus treatment, then the press shouldn't expect to be. And then there was his minister of 20 years, Wright. Had to claim he barely listened to him when the media reluctantly had to “report” about Wright’s anti-American rants.

Obama still has never had a real job. He's never been held accountable for anything he's done. The bloom will be off his particular rose after he steps down from the exalted heights of the office he has been elected to, twice, by low information voters, racists and white guilters. Memoirs written by others and a definite LACK of respect shown to him by those who don't have to kiss his ... ring ... any longer will paint him in a true light.

What future POTUS will ask Obama's counsel on anything? How many of them have sought the advice of Jimmy Carter who now doesn’t seem as bad with Obama so much worse?

Gov. Sam Brownback, speaking to reporters Wednesday, said the bond rating agencies "don't like the overall flow of cutting taxes," but he and legislative leaders are committed to continuing to do so.
“It’s hard to break the addiction to high taxes," Brownback said in an interview recorded by a 580 WIBW Radio reporter. "It’s hard to do, but we need to do it to create growth.”
Moody's said it issued its downgrade because Kansas' economic recovery was sluggish compared with other states and legislators had been turning to temporary "nonrecurring" revenue sources to balance budgets while spending more than the state is projected to take in taxes.
Moody's also cited the state's underfunded Kansas Public Employees Retirement system in May, but that system, while still underfunded, received a positive report last month that showed the funding trajectory improving because of bullish market returns and increased contributions from the state.
Tax revenues came in hundreds of millions of dollars lower than projected in April, May and June, leaving the state with little margin for error to have enough funds to implement the budget passed by legislators in April.
Tax collections rebounded to just above projections in July, but even if that trend holds, the next Legislature will need to enact some combination of spending cuts or tax increases for the budget that begins in July 2015, because deficit spending is projected to suck reserve funds dry by then.
spending cuts are always good....

Obama has repeatedly said that he will take executive action if Congress does not pass an immigration policy overhaul.

He will face fierce opposition if he does decide to forge his own path—a majority of Americans, including a majority of his own party, say Obama should continue to work with Congress on reforms, according to an Investors Business Daily/TIPP poll.

The poll shows 73 percent of the public say Obama should work with Congress on reforms.

Only 22 percent say he should “sidestep Congress and act on his own using executive orders”—something the president has pledged to do. He promised in June he would enact an executive amnesty if a comprehensive reform is not in place by the end of the summer.

However, he may be backtracking now. Obama is reportedly hesitating to enact an executive order, as doing so may cost his party the Senate.

(Because he can't figure out how to blame republicans.)

Between tax cuts for the rich, war profits for Halliburton, or support for our troops - which does the Bush Administration choose, time and time again?

Bush Administration cuts $1.5 billion from military family housing. The Bush Administration cut $1.5 billion for military family housing, despite Department of Defense statistics showing that in 83,000 barracks and 128,860 family housing units across the country are below standard.("Nothing But Lip Service," Army Times, June 30, 2003; "House Appropriations Committee Approves $59.2 Million for Ft. Hood," U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards Press Release, June 17, 2003)

Bush Republicans support millionaires instead of military veterans. Bush allies in Congress stopped efforts to scale back the tax cut for the nation's millionaires by just five percent - a loss of just $4,780 for the year - in order to restore this funding for military family housing.("The Tax Debate Nobody Hears About," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)

Bush Administration underfunded veterans' health care by $2 billion. The Bush Administration's 2004 budget underfunded veterans' health care by nearly $2 billion.("Vets Health Low on Bush's Priority List," The Hill, September 17, 2003; "Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003; U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs, September 2002)

Bush Administration proposal would end health care benefits for 173,000 veterans. More than 173,000 veterans across the country would be cut off from health care because of Bush Administration proposed budget cuts and its plan requiring enrollment fees and higher out-of-pocket costs.("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)

Bush Administration budget cuts force more than 200,000 veterans to wait for health care. Over 200,000 United States veterans have to wait more than six months for a medical visit because of health care shortages.("VA Health Care Funding Alert," Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Press Release, January 31, 2003)

Bush Administration opposed plan to give National Guard and Reserve Members access to health insurance. Despite the war efforts of America's National Guard and Reserve Members, the Bush Administration announced in October 2003 its formal opposition to give the 1.2 million Guard and Reserve members the right to buy health care coverage through the Pentagon's health plan. One out of every five Guard members lacks health insurance.("Bush Opposes Health Plan for National Guard," Gannett News Service, October 23, 2003)

Bush Administration cuts $172 million allotted for educating the children of military personnel. The Bush Administration's 2004 budget cut $172 million of impact aid funding. Impact aid funding assists school districts by making up for lost local tax revenue from tax-exempt property, such as military bases. These education cuts will especially affect school-age children of troops serving in Iraq who reside on military bases.("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)

Bush Administration tax cut denies military families increase in child tax credit. The families of 262,000 children of military personnel do not receive the child tax credit increase because the plan fails to cover taxpaying families with incomes between $10,500 and $26,625. According to The Washington Post, the House version of the Bush Administration plan "wouldn't help many of those serving in Iraq." One solider who will not benefit is Army Specialist Shoshana Johnson, the soldier and single mother who was wounded twice in the same convoy as Jessica Lynch.("Ex-POW's Family Accuses Army of Double Standard on Benefit," Washington Post, October 24, 2003; "The New Senate Child Credit Legislation - What It Does and Does Not Do," Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, June 25, 2003; "Whose Child Is Left Behind," Children's Defense Fund, July 23, 2003)

Let's hope so. And from a city that has a political reputation as corrupt as Chicago too.

A better community organizer from another corrupt political cesspool is what we need in D.C. As long as they bring along their fellow corrupt politicians and handlers from the same cesspool...I mean, city...we'll be in good shape.

This was just the wrong community organizer from the wrong cesspool bringing the wrong people to give him the wrong advise this time.

At least Hillary comes from Little Rock and served as co-president for eight years. Despite her husband's willingness to embarrass her on national television and let her talk about some "vast rightwing conspiracy" the day before he admitted he DID have sex with that woman...guess we can't blame her for her husband's character flaws at that time.

Hillary would have been the much better choice in 2008. But the propagandists will have to scrub off the tire marks after throwing her under the bus to make her look brand new again in 2016.

Look, I'm gonna tell you one last time... George Bush Junior got busted for (cocaine) possession in Alabama while he was supposed to be flyin' trainers in Texas. He COULDN'T show up for the meetings, he was LITERALLY picking up trash on the side of the highway in hillbilly heaven... Daddy had the records expunged for obvious reasons....

PHILADELPHIA (AP)— People who are repeatedly caught driving under the influence in Pennsylvania are more likely than many other states to remain behind the wheel, a newspaper is reporting.
The Philadelphia Inquirer said Sunday Pennsylvania doesn't mandate ignition interlock devices for first-time DUI cases, and doesn't immediately suspend licenses of defendants who fail sobriety tests.
The paper says a 5-year-old court opinion means drivers must be convicted of DUI before being charged as a repeat offender.
Police can sometimes fail to charge driving suspended along with DUI, a charge that can significantly increase jail time.
The paper says Philadelphia prosecutors and judges are comparatively lenient with repeat offenders.
The Inquirer says somewhere between 2,000 and 6,000 people in Pennsylvania have four or more drunken driving convictions over the past 20 years.
Patricia opposed to Fifth Amendment.....

Patricia would prefer California, where the DMV can suspend a person's drivers license even after they are acquitted in court....

Sieg Heil, Patricia!!!
