After posting the Breitbart link on my FB I was challenged with the actual content of the speech.

"Read it for yourself and tell me if you think the headline is honest.  I don't."

Which headline are you talking about CD?

I am tired of this from the Bamster:

"The whole objective of these terrorists is to scare us into changing the nature of who we are and our democracy.  And the fact is, people and nations do not make good decisions when they are driven by fear. "

 I really don't need a pompous lecture on telling me "who I , as an American, am".
And stop the "Fear" smear.  We want to defend ourselves OK?   soon to be ex commander in chief.

And this:  "Good afternoon, everybody.  I was just told that was going to be the last "Hail to the Chief" on the road, and it got me kind of sentimental. "
 
 Yeah, I bet you are sad you won't be the big guy on campus soon .  (not soon enough for me)

Re-exp[eriencing Obama's tone here summarizes the career of the ignorant, arrogant, Ivy League snob from Occupy White House who wasted 8 years of this country's history we will never get back.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1409sXBleg

Before that, the US under Obama reneged on a promise to its allies and canceled missile defense for Eastern Europe.

Right while he was saying that, RUssia successfully hacked the Obama White House.

After he said that, Russia "annexed" Crimea and threatened Ukraine.

And now he thinks Russia changed the outcom of an American election on his watch?

I'm old enough to remember when we held Presidents accountable for what happened under their watch.

Also watch the demeanor of Romney, playing by the rules and politely taking the abuse.  Lesson from that, Trump won and Obama lost.  Trump for all his bizarre facial expressions and interruptions would not have sat there and taken that.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Obama:  Governor Romney, I'm glad that you recognize that Al Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not Al Qaida; you said Russia, in the 1980s, they're now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years.

But Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.

You say that you're not interested in duplicating what happened in Iraq. But just a few weeks ago, you said you think we should have more troops in Iraq right now. And the -- the challenge we have -- I know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy -- but every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong. You said we should have gone into Iraq, despite that fact that there were no weapons of mass destruction.

You said that we should still have troops in Iraq to this day. You indicated that we shouldn't be passing nuclear treaties with Russia despite the fact that 71 senators, Democrats and Republicans, voted for it. You said that, first, we should not have a timeline in Afghanistan. Then you said we should. Now you say maybe or it depends, which means not only were you wrong, but you were also confusing in sending mixed messages both to our troops and our allies.
 So, what -- what we need to do with respect to the Middle East is strong, steady leadership, not wrong and reckless leadership that is all over the map. And unfortunately, that's the kind of opinions that you've offered throughout this campaign, and it is not a recipe for American strength, or keeping America safe over the long haul.

Watching Obama today makes our country look weak and foolish.
He sounds groveling.

All of a sudden cyber security has been forced to the front of the news by him and all of his jurno -listers .
Talk about fraudulent news.  rolleyes

One month will not be soon enough to run him out of town.

He argues for tougher gun laws and issues 49 pardons for firearms offences.  Makes perfect sense.

https://pjmedia.com/trending/2016/12/19/obama-delivers-231-pardons-and-commutations-49-for-firearm-offenses/

A complete ban is a reasonable regulation (DC) and a constitutional right is not an individual right (Heller).

The man we still call Mr. President helped firearms sales more than any other president in US history.

As President Obama concludes his reign of error, his party is smaller, weaker and ricketier than it has been since at least the 1940s. Behold the tremendous power that Democrats have frittered away -- from January 2009 through the aftermath of Election Day -- thanks to Obama and his ideas:
Democrats surrendered the White House to political neophyte Donald J. Trump.
US Senate seats slipped from 55 to 46, down 16 percent.
US House seats fell from 256 to 194, down 24 percent.
Democrats ran the Senate and House in 2009. Next year, they will control neither.
Governorships slid from 28 to 16, down 43 percent.
State legislatures (both chambers) plunged from 27 to 14, down 48 percent
Trifectas (states with Democrat governors and both legislative chambers) cratered from 17 to 6, down 65 percent.

HI Doug.  I wish I could be so celebratory.

These control freaks are not going away.  They still have the media, they still have the minorities, academia, hollywood, California most immigrants and foreign born and there endless coalitions of any interest group  they can bribe with taxpayer money.

And I am worried about what can happen with Trump.  There are twenty ways for disasters and no matter what he will get the blame.

CCP,  I agree.  I added a couple of Link sources to that post. The point was to show some evidence that Barack Obama might not have defeated Donald Trump in 2016, since he did manage to lose almost everything else for them including Hillary's race. 

I wrote a piece for Pat's site called skip the endzone dance that didn't go over very well. My point was, we have accomplished nothing so far. We haven't repealed a single tax, law, program or regulation. We haven't even a plan to to change their 90 plus percent advantage in schools, colleges and media. If we nominate and confirm a Supreme Court Justice that is brilliant, conservative and perfect, it only takes us back to where we were before scalia died, a divided court..

I, too, am worried.  This was a pendulum swing, not a conservative shift. If we want a conservative shift, we will have to enact conservative policies and see great results, and even that is not enough.  We are still terrible at messaging.

Trump will have to double the growth rate and that is just starting point and a talking point against all that will be thrown at him that allegedly went wrong, like if the rich get richer.

IF Trump did not have such high negatives I think he would have blown Brock and Hillary out of the water.

OTOH if Hillary did also not have such high negs then who knows.

Everything considered I think there was a slight mandate to get rid of Brock and company at least or now.   

"I wrote a piece for Pat's site called skip the endzone dance that didn't go over very well"

Where was this?  I would like to see .

End zone dance.  There is one problem:  there is a flag down on the play, but we will have to wait for months or more to see what the call is..... wink

Revise and extend President Obama's accomplishments in decimating the liberal agenda with more big accomplishments:

Obama presided over the sale of 100 million guns in to private citizens in America - by continually threatening to ban them.

Pres. Obama had a hand in reelecting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, advancing peace through strength, by openly opposing his reelection.

Electing Donald Trump, couldn't have done it without him.  We will get a wall, a fence and some immigration sanity for the explicit reason that President Obama refused to do it and showed us the ocnsequences.

VP Joe Biden said President Obama's biggest accomplishment was ending the war in Iraq.  Surrender equals victory is the name of this thread, cognitive dissonance of the glibness.  Maybe our future readiness against ISIS and Islamic extremism will be Obama's biggest achievement, for bringing it out where we can see it.

Right, the defects and negatives of the two of them were the stories of the campaign but underlying that was that America very typically changes course after two failed terms.  Because Obama approval polls above 50%, his failure was hard to measure, but plenty of other measures tell us America was unimpressed by his Presidency.


"I wrote a piece for Pat's site called skip the endzone dance that didn't go over very well"

It looked a lot like this:  http://dogbrothers.com/phpBB2/index.php?topic=1736.msg99707#msg99707
http://www.spartareport.com/2016/11/way-forward-no-end-zone-dance-just-work/?yop_poll_tr_id=&yop-poll-nonce-23_yp582dd683773d4=a7b3ba56cc

It got some scathing comments but I stand by every word of it.  Like when we took the House, took the Senate, change is possible and might or might not happen.  So far none of it has happened.  That isn't a slam on anybody, just a reality check on where we are.  Surviving the repeal and replace of Obamacare is a big deal.  Tax reform.  Getting a great nominee on the Supreme Court is a big deal, hasn't happened yet.  Staying in power to do a second and third pick is a big deal.  We haven't begun...

My previous submissions,  they were all posted here first in the proper threads:    )

I am not sure I agree with the comparison to LBJ and I really get concerned when people on the right make claims that the LEFT is decimated.   OK may Repubs have made gains with political positions but I do not see a sea tide change in  the national consciousness towards conservatism. 

The election could EASILY have gone the other way and we would all be ringing our hands about the demise of the Republican Party and conservatism.  Yet the article is a worth while though provoking exercise:

It's like the celebrities who soak the public for more money giving themselves awards and telling the world how great and brilliant they all are such as the God knows how  many music award shows.

Obama can certainly go down in history as the most obnoxious President.   He is also planning on being the most obnoxious ex prez that is obvious.

 I have to be honest though - I hope Trump doesn't follow suit.

I've gotten some feedback on the Obama self-award piece by Breitbart.

Apparently this is SOP, even Bush 43 got this award.

Like Marc Levin was saying last night there is no need to listen.
We know how the speech will go

I.......(fill in blank)  and repeat 50 times
Everything is better...... (fill in the rest)
warning on "hate"

The usual buzz words

"diversity"
"arc of history"
"the notion that" (anything the Republicans believe in)
"who we are" ( we are supposed to be globalists)

and then at end add another 50 or so "I"s

And I might add no need to listen to the MSM fawn all over his speech and their blatant and latent hostility to Trump and anything Republican (except for useful idiots like Graham and McCain)

And for good measure no one should think for one second this guy will go away.  We will continue to be lectured till he is dead which will be long after me.  If the hope and change is NOT HIS brand then  it is wrong .

For all the country he is remembered as the first Black President.
For one half the country he is remembered less for that than for being the first Marxist President who truly did not like America .

I'm a big fan of his opposition to illegal aliens. Note that the left has cut this from it's official history, like the Soviets used to trim purged officials from pictures.

"You may have heard that Chavez preached against illegal immigration, but "The Crusades of Cesar Chavez" by Miriam Pawel, a new book released in timely fashion this month by Bloomsbury Press, has the iconic Hispanic hero sounding at times like a typical nativist bigot and acting like a right-wing militia member."

Of course , we can't have our union hero sounding like a typical nativist bigot or right wing jerk - can we?

WE all know this but unfortunately Obama got away with and will continue to do so till his last second in office
The MSM will not hold him accountable like they did with Nixon.  The Republicans should just shut the present investigations down or at least replace the investigators with real objective non partisans.
But I am not holding my breawth:

True to form from someone with a personality disorder is the total lack of any responsibility.  It is always someone else's fault:

Nothing says Glibness like when President Obama told Great Britain it "could get in the back of the queue", parenthesis, go to hell, regarding new trade deals while he lost another, after his Netanyahu loss, foreign elections that he tried to interfere with.
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/apr/22/barack-obama-brexit-uk-back-of-queue-for-trade-talks

That verbal atrocity went by largely unnoticed but really should go in his top ten gaffe list right along side of 'tell Vladimir I'll have more flexibility after my reelection'.

Even trade-skeptic Donald Trump recognizes the value of relations with our closest ally, the United Kingdom, a nuclear power and ally in almost every war.  Front of the queue, says his successor, "I think we’re gonna get something done very quickly".

Guess which one they call immature...

Foreign policy isn't all rocket science (or wishful thinking).  Some of it is common sense.
