30. First President to go on over 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers.
31. First President to have personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
32. First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.
33. First President to fly in a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense.
34. First President to repeat the Quran and tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.
35. First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).
36. First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they "volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences."
37. Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

I feel much better now. I had been under the impression he hadn't been doing ANYTHING... Such an accomplished individual... in the eyes of the ignorant maybe.!.

If you think the American people can't be trusted with guns, but Iran can be trusted with nuclear weapons, you might be Buraq Hussein Obama.

Gallup approval rating ~ 49%;  Absolutely depressing. 

 cry

If one figures a net of 50 million foreign born people in the US and 80% of them are Democrats then a good 10 % of this is them.

First this from Iran thread,  Obama: Rockets Will Fall On Tel Aviv if Congress Kills Deal

Good grief.  If Iranian rockets fall on Tel Aviv it will be because they believe this President doesn't stand behind Israel.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I noticed this too, a new low for the President.  But really he is insulting Iranian hardliners by comparing with a group he despises more.

Krauthammer: Obama Comparing Republicans to Iranian Hardliners "A New Low For The President"


CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: It's vintage Obama, the demonization of his opponent, the lumping them together with people chanting death to America, I must say is a new low for the president considering. Which is saying a lot considering how he does demonize the opposition. But what is even worse here is how delusional he is. He is pretending that those who chant death to America are some kind of KKK fringe in Iran. The people leading the chant of the Revolutionary Guard, the army, the parliamentary leaders and of course -- as he always calls them, Obama always does -- the Supreme Leader himself in a speech he made just a few days after the signing of the agreement the chants break out death to America, death to Israel and the Ayatollah said may Allah hear your prayers.

Well I heard Levin yesterday bash Obama's straw man argument that the choice is either this deal or war.   I agree with his premise that this is flawed but not for the reason he suggests.   It is flawed because there is simply no other way to stop Iran from getting nukes other than military action.  If it is obvious to me than it is obvious to the military and it is obvious they have concluded the strategy of containment has the best risk benefit analysis  unless  it IS just the strategy of history's greatest man.

WE should have bombed years ago.   Too late?  I dunno.

But back to Levin's argument.  It is not the choice between war and peace that is the issue it is the choice between Iran going nuclear or not.

My mom, who is intrigued with Trump, tells me his solution was to bomb their oil fields.

"My mom, who is intrigued with Trump, tells me his solution was to bomb their oil fields."

Crafty, I thought you mom is a liberal Democrat?   She likes Trump?    shocked cool

Bombing their oil industry IS an interesting new thought.

Or we can just vote for Jeb and continue to speak about sanctions, verification, statesmanship and the rest, and I must add the all important "the military option is not off the table" all the while Iran proceeds with their military nuclear program.

BTW I still think Schumer will not cross the party line, ie: Bamster.  He has never done so if my memory serves me correctly.

I heard Ben Carson yesterday morning suggest we confiscate the oil fields now held by ISIS as well.  Ayn Rand long ago said that one of the most foolish mistakes we made as a nation was developing the oil fields in the Middle East, and then handing them over to the people that lived there.

Could it have been your grandmother I was thinking of?  I recall you posting in the past someone in your family who was a Democrat in NY.

Not important.

My mother too I think would have been intrigued by Trump's ideas though I am not sure about his personality.

Important stuff in there.  It's time to take off the kid gloves and tear down the popularity of this guy on the basis of his policies. 

Rush L was talking about the clamor for an apology from Trump and said this:

" if anybody owes anybody an apology -- I'm dead serious about this -- it's Barack Obama and the Democrat Party for what they are doing and have done to this country.  I mean, there are real things of action taking place that are genuinely transformative and destructive.  "

When is Pres. Barack Obama going to apologize to America?  Never, of course.  That doesn't mean the demands for an apology shouldn't keep increasing until the day he leaves office and beyond.

Letting him off the hook for what he has done will lead to electing more of the same or worse in the future.

It isn't Barrack that owes an apology. It's everyone that supports him and that should be forcefully driven into exile, and I'm definitely saying that unapologetically. That applies to Republicans as well, who have their own series of shenanigans to lay claim to.

The faster this all hits bottom, the better. Both parties and their supporters are criminal.

By the way, far from being one to complain and not offer a solution;

The Democrats are all fatally flawed inasmuch as they depend on the government tit and though they say they don't, they are just as inclined to push their moral codes onto others (try hunting a lion or giraffe and posting pictures of it), whilst crying about religious ethics being thrust upon them.

The Conservatives cater to the ridiculously rich and are far from the patriots they believe themselves to be, because they have no problem sending jobs abroad.

Neither believe in freedom, not really.

Anarchy is freedom... it is a perfect state of chaos where everything is responsible for itself or dies. It's perfect.

The closer we can get to that, to the individual being responsible for the individual, the greater degree of freedom we will enjoy. The problem is that people don't really want freedom. They want safety and riches. When rich, they want to be richer and lazier.

Nature was never designed for that.

Get rid of both parties, impose term limits and free association, negate 95% of the laws on the books, arm yourselves and get rid of the police. Let foreign armies invade and kill them (if everyone is armed, it shouldn't be an issue.... not even Russia or the States can hammer a few mujahideen - The Bear Went Over the Mountain type of deal), and go back to the way things used to be before politics evolved. The Hammurabi was arguably the worlds first great mistake in that, it sought to control where control is not possible. Everything since then has been based on irresponsibility or a lie.

Most people couldn't hack it.

Valerie Jarrett, we hate the carried interest loophole - except when we save ourselves hundreds of thousands in taxes.

Fair to me to use the existing tax code, but imagine their attacks if it was a Republican doing it.

Two key determinants of the 2016 Presidential elections are a) the approval of the President and b) the perception of the performance of the economy coming into the election.  Both are currently tanking for the President.

For 6 1/2 years we have heard that the performance of the stock market somehow proves the economy is healthy and that Americans mostly approve of this President.  Whoops.  Down goes the market (http://www.cnbc.com/2015/08/21/all-three-major-indexes-are-having-worst-week-since-2011.html) and in a separate matter it looks like the President is again 10 points underwater in job (dis)approval in the last 4 major polls.

Gallup           8/20 - 8/22    42 Approve, 53 Disapprove.  Net:  -11
Rasmussen    8/18 - 8/20    44               54                           -10
Reuters/Ipsos 8/15 - 8/19   43               52                            -9
The Economist 8/15 - 8/17  43               53                           -10

THIS MAY BE OBAMA'S DUMBEST GUN CONTROL ARGUMENT YET

August 27, 2015  Daniel Greenfield   


And that's saying something.

Obama is determined to fight his gun control Jihad and attempted to exploit the racist murder of two white reporters by pushing his own political agenda in the dumbest way possible.

“It breaks my heart every time you read about or hear about these kinds of incidents,” Obama said. “What we know, is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”

Since the set of people killed by guns includes terrorist attacks, this is a stupid and meaningless thing to say.

Obama could have equally said that more people are murdered than are murdered by terrorists. Or that more people died in wars than in WW2.

The various statistical attempts to minimize 9/11 that the left has been pushing all these years (more people die in car accidents in a year, etc) are obnoxious enough, but this is really aimed at liberals so stupid they have trouble walking upright.

Since gun-related incidents include suicides, Obama is giving us the incredible news that the total number of ways in which people are killed by guns is greater than any specific way they can be killed by guns.

Also the total number of ways in which people can die is greater than any specific way people can die, including gun-related incidents, therefore we shouldn't take them seriously, because despite Obama's Ivy League education, he has no concept of logical reasoning.

I'm not clear on the number of people who have been killed by carbon dioxide, but Obama has been turning the country upside down and destroying jobs even faster than usual fighting it. But if it kills fewer people than all the other gases combined, including it, we don't need to worry about it.

That's Obama logic. It's close enough for government work. Unfortunately.
