Unfortunately, for the past two presidential election cycles, the U.S. electorate elected and then re-elected a president that has not had a beneficial effect on our society. It seems to me that the people voted for a candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, because of the color of his skin, not on the content of his character. Martin Luther King would be turning over in his grave if he could witness what is happening in and to our country today.
Scandal after scandal, race relations at a boiling point, our economy under performing, and our foreign policy in a shambles, all because the majority of the voting public “wanted change”. Well, they got that change all right, right in the solar plexus, and it will take years to undo the damage Obama and his flunky’s have done to the country. Lying with a straight face seems to be the national pastime in Wash. D.C. today.
I have never, in my many years of observing politics, seen such a “cult” worship on the part of a goodly portion of the electorate who consider Obama their “Messiah”, and that includes many in the main stream media. The term that best describes this condition is called “cognitive dissonance”.
Can you imagine if Mitt Romney, a righteous man with enormous administrative and business experience, was elected in 2012, how things would be different than they are today? We would now be in the process of dismantling that monstrosity called the (Un)Affordable Care Act (a/k/a Obamacare). All the chaos that we are experiencing now would be mitigated by a president who could see the deficiencies of this ill-conceived law. Under a Pres. Romney, we would be opening up all areas for our exploration of our natural resources of oil, coal, and natural gas thereby making us free from importing much of our energy needs from countries that are not friendly to us and who have bilked us over the years with inflated energy prices. Under Romney, we’d be able to reduce the duplication and waste in a bloated federal government, in addition to trying to reduce our national debt by not throwing good taxpayer money down the proverbial rat hole, in hopes of generating future votes from the “low information” voters in future elections.
The worst thing a Republican, Conservative, or Independent voter could do is to stay home at election time and not vote because they didn’t agree with 100% of a candidates position on various issues. That’s what happened to Romney and now look what we are saddled with - 4 more years of national upset and massive political ignorance.
Yes, elections do have consequences, and if you don’t see it now, you never will. Forget about a 3rd Party and for looking for that “100% pure” ideological candidate, there “ain’t” no such animal, otherwise, we’ll have another 4 years of “progressive lunacy”, in the name of Hillary Rodham Clinton. We can’t afford another Marxist/Socialist in the White House, along with her “horn-dog” of a first husband by the name of Slick Willie Clinton. A word to the wise should be sufficient.

The main reason people accumulate debt is by making purchases and bad
choices they can't afford, or have the money to pay for them.
Like many modern innovations to ease and better life like a credit card and
technology, it is becoming evident they are being miss used and becoming
a detriment from their original purpose.
My credit card is a convenience, not an unsteady crutch that's never used for
purchases that cannot be backed with cash in the bank. A loan is never
secured if there is chance it can default. Only an unforeseen act of God can
cause my reneging on an obligation.
This is not how the government operates, especially the present one. It is
abusive when dealing with the economy, because it spends money that isn't
theirs nor has.
Like storms originating in Africa through the Cape Verde Islands, the tempest
in Washington was originated by an African-American from the White House.
The President claims he is willing to meet and sit down with anyone to resolve
the partial shutdown of services and pending debt ceiling, as long as it
doesn't interfere with his Affordable Care Act and increased spending. At
the same time he continues to accuse Republicans of obstructing his economy
from moving ahead. The only movement on his part is his bowels. We've had
enough of his bowel movements, a.k.a., B.S. since his 2009 inauguration.
Obamacare was the law of the land in a partisan vote, affirmed by the Supreme
Court, until the President altered and amended it without congressional
approval; therefore it no longer remains invulnerable. If it is to survive,
it must apply to everyone from the President down to all government
personnel and their families without exemptions or waivers. This applies
to extensions too.
The House appropriates funds to run the government and other essentials,
but is known to overestimate the funds required, lacing a clean bill with,
'you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours ' bills designed for their
constituents' consumption and re-election votes that spills into the Senate.
The way polls have been taken to apply blame for the shutdown is misleading.
The query is split three ways between the President, Democrats and Republicans,
instead of two. The President is head of the Democratic party and should not be
separated from it, because they do his bidding, so the favorable count is
erroneous due to duplicity.
In a nut shell, President Obama is trying to force Republicans and tax payers
to cosign the checks he and his phony liberal administration wrote that are
sure to bounce.

Sarah Palin was about many issues regarding the incompetent Barack Hussein Obama.
We have a YouTube Video with Bill Whittle and one of his "AFTERBURNER" productions.
Mr. Whittle wants you to guess who said that Sarah Palin was RIGHT and that there are essentially bureaucratic death panels overseeing the Obamacare disaster. A hint is that it is a well-known Democrat.

The word Socialist has been bandied about ever since Barack Hussein Obama ascended to the Office of President. Many people have claimed that Obama is a Socialist - which many Democrats (and even Obama himself) get quite upset when they deny it. But, is there a legitimate case for that claim?
There really is an organized group in the United States that is called the Democratic Socialists of America and many of our politicians belong to that group. The DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) is the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International (the world-wide Socialist organization). Some of the prominent politicians (mostly all Democrats) who belong to the DSA (now sometimes called the Progressive Caucus) includes, Sen. Bernie Sanders (an avowed Socialist), Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Rep. John Conyers, Rep. Alan Grayson, Rep. Charlie Rangel, Rep. Henry Waxman etc. In fact, a total of approx. 70 members of Congress are members of the DSA, including most all the members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
What do Democratic Socialists believe in? According to their website, they believe in a humane international social order based on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources; meaningful work; a healthy environment; sustained growth; gender and social equality; and non-oppressive relationships. Who could be against some of those nice sounding goals? Well, not everything that sounds good on paper can actually work out well in actual practice, as history seems to have shown us.
If you read between the lines, you can see many of the policies espoused by Obama and the Democrats are quite similar to the policies espoused by the DSA. They mention democratic planning (a/k/a central planning); market mechanisms (government run agencies like Obamacare); distribution of resources (also known as income redistribution from the rich to the poor); healthy environment (pushing policies about stemming global warming (a/k/a climate change). Obama and his Administration have echoed many of these policies in how they approach the handling of our government.
The DSA has strong support among the labor unions in the USA, as many of the labor leaders are avowed Socialists. Pres. Obama is a strong supporter of labor unions and has pushed for advantages to benefit the labor unions. For example, he has introduced the EFCA (Employee Free Choice Act) which would make it easier for labor unions to attempt to organize companies by doing away with secret ballot elections when the unions try to organize workers at various companies, and he has granted them special waivers for some of his most controversial policies (like in Obamacare).
Most of the influential people in Obama’s life have been people associated with Marxist/Socialist policies and ideas. His mentor during his teens in Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis, was an avowed Marxist/Socialist; the leftist professors in college he associated with; his political benefactor who was instrumental in getting him started in politics, Bill Ayers, an admitted terrorist and Socialist; his pastor and black liberation preacher, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is a Socialist with racist ideals. In addition, in both his presidential campaigns, the DSA worked for and supported his candidacy. An expression my mother told me as to why people do certain things went like this, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”, this sort of explains how Obama acts and speaks, gleaned from his past associations.
So it is, in my estimation, that it is a safe bet to say that our President, Barack Hussein Obama, is a Socialist, whether he or the Democrats want to admit it or not.

If you like your President,
you can keep your President.
I don't like him. I don't want him. I never did. I never will. Nor, do I want anything to do with his kakamamy ObamaCAIR. Contrary to the cutesy title, it is definitely not an affordable health care act. It was and is, a disaster. So, if you like him, you can keep him but, not in my White House. You can go someplace else and take him with you. He can keep his teleprompters but, we keep Air Force One. From now on, he flies commercial - out of his own or George Soros's pocket. Good luck wif dat.
I'm sympathetic toward people who are not insured against the very real possibility of a catastrophic health care issue however, as serious as that can be - it is not a sufficient reason to make health care available free, to everyone who cannot or will not fend for themselves or, to accommodate millions of aliens who have violated our immigration laws by illegally entering the country. - nor, is it sufficiently justifiable cause to destroy the relationship that many millions of Americans had with their insurance carriers, with whom they were satisfied.. Nor, is it sensible or realistic to force a program down the throats of the American people and make upper income brackets pay the tab for lower brackets. This gets to the heart of this President's socialist ideology that dictates equal distribution of wealth from the wallets of truly hard working middle income folks, to those with out-stretched hands.
It is an idiotic, un-American, thoroughly stupid idea - one that could only have been advocated and manipulated into law, by an abhorrent someone who has never held a real job, never met a payroll, never accomplished anything of value in his life - but, one who has been elected and re-elected by an entire generation of 'something-for-nothing' addicts, racist apologists and the more corrupt elements of the Democrat Party leadership.
More than 70% of the American population had expressed many times over, that they did not want this cumbersome Governmental power grab. Americans ain't stupid, y'know. Complicit members of Congress who ignored the message from their constituents - were and are - stupid, that is. It is worth noting that not one, single Republican voted for Obamacare. As a group, they recognized - 'stupid'.
Unlike the healthcare - insurance 'expert', Mr. Un-informed Know-it-All Barack Hussein Obama, most otherwise intelligent Americans do not seem to have viewed their health insurance carriers as, purveyors of sub-par insurance products. Most folks didn't feel as if their insurance companies were 'bad apple' companies foisting inferior policies onto their customers, whom they considered to be unintelligent and clueless. But, that's how myopic Obama views it.
I don't recall hearing that characterization - 'bad apple insurance companies' used until just a few weeks ago. Obama is great at creating his own language, his own definitions, even his own facts but - he doesn't know 'jack' about health care. Nor, does he really doesn't give a damn about it - what he seeks is total control over the population - and he is determined to recruit more and more people who can be counted on to vote Democrat. If you think there is any other motivation for his interminable speech-making, fund-raising, lying and deceptions - - - think again.MORT KUFF © 11-12-2013

A shriveled, has been, left wing bleeding heart runt of an actor is pulling
a Rodney Dangerfield, "I get no respect" about President Obama.
Robert Redford, an ardent supporter of the president complains there is
an undertone of racism by Americans, Tea Party sympathizers or anyone
opposing him. His claim? They don't give him credit for anything.
Well, I'm here to tell you, I credit him for a lot of things he is
I credit him for Solyndra. I credit him for Fast and Furious. I credit him
for the IRS scandal. I give him credit for the seventeen trillion dollar
hole he dug us into. I give him credit for skillfully using media lackeys
in blaming Republicans for the partial shutdown and ills of the country.
Credit is due him for his brilliant handling of foreign relations with
Iran, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Russia, N. Korea and other countries
thumbing there nose at us.
I thank him for utilizing the efforts of dedicated people in the Bush
administration that made it possible for him to take credit for the demise
of Osama bin Laden. I give him credit for being awarded the Nobel Peace
prize, but I don't really know what it was for. I give him credit for his
leadership, or lack there of, with the help of his Secretary of State into
a deadly fiasco in Benghazi. NSA's miss use can be credited to him.
Last but not least, the show case of his administration, Obamacare. It is
turning the middle class topsy-turvy, the medical profession bonkers and
health insurers into turmoil.
If criticizing an incompetent ideologue is being racist, what would
you call me if I could replace him in a heart beat with a Dr. Ben Carson,
or an Allen West, Condoleezza Rice, Thomas Sowell or Mia Love?

The hype surrounding our President, Barack Hussein Obama, is hard to fathom after 5 years as our chief executive. The aura of his “perceived” exceptional knowledge, and the quest for racial diversity seemed to cause rapture among the majority of voters in 2008 and again in 2012. In 2008, he did the unthinkable, he beat out, for the Democratic nomination, the assumed favorite, Hillary Clinton. He was touted by his group of election-savvy handlers as being the coming of the Messiah. A fresh change and face from the 8 years of George W. Bush, whom the media and the Democrats hated with a passion.
Little was known about him (and still little is known about him even today), but he was heralded and sold as a person who would “transform” the United States for the better. Most people were unaware of his past and his associations with radicals as he grew up as a young man and into his adulthood. Dribs and drabs oozed out, but the “main stream media” avoided any real scrutiny that might’ve put him in a bad light. The media invested all their political capital into getting Obama elected. McCain didn’t have a chance as the Obama juggernaut roused an army of “low information” voters and special interest groups (ex. Blacks, unions, gays, feminists etc.). With the surge of voters (many on a racial guilt trip) with Obama at the top of the ticket, he was able to pull along enough Congressmen and Senators to get a majority in both houses of Congress. As a result and by some slight of hand (political extortion), he was able to mobilize his Democratic members in the House and Senate to pass his health care initiative, Obamacare (rightfully known by many as the “(Un)Affordable Care Act), without one Republican vote in the House or Senate. He, and the Democratic leadership in the House and Senate, ignored the Republicans completely in their drafting of this health care monstrosity. Relations between the parties have never been more strained since and it looks like the animosity between the parties is getting even worse.
Never in my lifetime has a president been so aloof of the everyday details of the office of president. He never seems to know who, what or where about the details a president is supposed to be on top of. He always says he just learned about a happening from the press or on T.V. or that someone in the know didn’t fill him in on the details. In other words, it’s always somebody else’s fault, never his.
His philosophy of governing has been passed down to him by his mother and grandparents (admitted Socialists), and by his mentor in Hawaii during his teen years, Frank Marshall Davis, an admitted Communist, his leftist professors in college, and in Chicago, his adopted hometown, from admitted domestic terrorist and radical, Bill Ayers, and his association with radical, black liberation preacher, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, an avowed Socialist. In addition, he embraced the radical philosophy of the late Saul Alinsky, author of the book, “Rules for Radicals”, which Obama taught students in the Univ. of Chicago law school, as a lecturer. These radical policies have been incorporated in his attempt to “transform America”, which so far has produced some disastrous results as our economy still hasn’t fully recovered from the disastrous recession that began in the fall of 2008.
I say, without a doubt in my mind, that our “Liar in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama, hasn’t a realistic clue as to how to run our country. For us to not challenge his policies, under threat of being called a racist, would be a sin of the worst kind. Whether we succeed or not, we must try to halt this “evil” total transformation of America. It is in the interest of our children and grandchildren that we succeed.

This is a very informative article by Dennis Prager.
I have been broadcasting for 31 years and writing for longer than that. I do not recall ever saying on radio or in print that a president is doing lasting damage to our country. I did not like the presidencies of Jimmy Carter (the last Democrat I voted for) or Bill Clinton. Nor did I care for the “compassionate conservatism” of George W. Bush. In modern political parlance “compassionate” is a euphemism for ever-expanding government.
But I have never written or broadcast that our country was being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great sadness that I write that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America. The only question is whether this can ever be undone.
This is equally true domestically and internationally.
Domestically, his policies have gravely impacted the American economy.
He has overseen the weakest recovery from a recession in modern American history.
He has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion dollars in five years (this after calling his predecessor “unpatriotic” for adding nearly $5 trillion in eight years).
He has fashioned a country in which more Americans now receive government aid — means-tested, let alone non-means tested — than work full-time.
He has no method of paying for this debt other than printing more money — thereby surreptitiously taxing everyone through inflation, including the poor he claims to be helping, and cheapening the dollar to the point that some countries are talking another reserve currency — and saddling the next generations with enormous debts.
With his 2,500-page Affordable Care Act, he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employee-sponsored group health insurance; he has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices; and he has caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers.
His Internal Revenue Service used its unparalleled power to stymie political dissent. No one has been held accountable.
His ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. No one has been blamed. The only blame the Obama administration has leveled was on a video maker in California who had nothing to do with the assault.
In this president’s White House, the buck stops nowhere.
Among presidents in modern American history, he has also been a uniquely divisive force. It began with his forcing Obamacare through Congress — the only major legislation in American history to be passed with no votes from the opposition party.
Though he has had a unique opportunity to do so, he has not only not helped heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them. His intrusions into the Trayvon Martin affair (“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”) and into the confrontation between a white police officer and a black Harvard professor (the police “acted stupidly”) were unwarranted, irresponsible, demagogic and, most of all, divisive.
He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world — something he should know as well anybody, having been raised only by whites and being the first black elected the leader of a white-majority nation. Instead, he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against “the rich” and “corporate profits.”
Regarding America in the world, he has been, if possible, even more damaging. The United States is at its weakest, has fewer allies, and has less military and diplomatic influence than at any time since before World War I.
One wonders if there is a remaining ally nation that trusts him. And worse, no American enemy fears him. If you are a free movement (the democratic Iranian and Syrian oppositions) or a free country (Israel), you have little or no reason to believe that you have a steadfast ally in the United States.
Even non-democratic allies no longer trust America. Barack Obama has alienated our most important and longest standing Arab allies, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Both the anti-Muslim Brotherhood and the anti-Iran Arab states have lost respect for him.
And his complete withdrawal of American troops from Iraq has left that country with weekly bloodbaths.
Virtually nothing Barack Obama has done has left America or the world better since he became president. Nearly everything he has touched has been made worse.
He did, however, promise before the 2008 election that “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” That is the one promise he has kept.
