David Victor Hanson over at National Review Online calls Barack Hussein Obama “Snarker-in-Chief.’ I thought I heard all of the insults coming out of Obama’s filthy, arrogant yap but some new ones mixed with old one’s so let’s have a look.
On Russian President Vladimir Putin:
“My sense is that’s part of his shtick back home politically as wanting to look like the tough guy,” Obama snarked. Putin has has “got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid at the back of the classroom.”
On Mitt Romney:
“[Romney is] changing up so much and backtracking and sidestepping we’ve got to name this condition he’s going through. I think it’s called . . . Romnesia. I’m not a medical doctor, but I do want to go over some of the symptoms with you because I want to make sure nobody else catches it.”
On Democrat voters in Pennsylvania:
“It’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
On American Christians:
Advising them not to get on their “high horse,” given the moral equivalence between the millennium-old Crusades and the present epidemic of radical Islamic terrorism.
On Obama’s Staff:
“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”
On Washington DC culture:
“What Washington needs is adult supervision.”
On Michael Jordan:
When chided the golf-obsessive Obama as in fact a “hack” and a “shitty” golfer. Obama quickly fired back:
Jordan “was not well informed. He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats — or the Hornets. But there is no doubt that Michael is a better golfer than I am. Of course if I was playing twice a day for the last 15 years, then that might not be the case.”
On Nancy Reagan:
“I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any séances.”
On Obama’s bowling skills:
“No, no. I have been practicing. . . . I bowled a 129. It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something.”
On Obama’s white mother:
“But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred in our experiences that don’t go away.”
Referring to lawmakers:
“I’m presenting a fair deal, the fact that they don’t take it means that I should somehow do a Jedi mind-meld with these folks and convince them to do what’s right.”
On opponents during Obama’s reelection campaign:
“And you can pretty much put their campaign on . . . a tweet and have some characters to spare.”
Responding to Romney criticizing the down-sizing of the US military:
“Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed. . . . We also have things called aircraft carriers that planes land on and submarines that go under water.” Note the snark “that planes land on” and “that go under water.”
Responding to Romney’s statement that Putin is America’s chief worry:
“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.”
At Obama’s last State of the Union address Republican’s applauded when he noted he had no more campaigns to run:
“I know. Because I won both.”
To Senator Jon Kyl, who once questioned the newly inaugurated Obama about the proper mix between tax hikes and budget cuts:
To his Republican House opponents of his agenda, Obama snarked:
“Middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me.”
On proponents to the Keystone Pipeline:
“Let’s set our sights higher than a single oil pipeline.”
It’s been fairly well documented that on the night of the Benghazi attacks on the American consulate leaving four Americans dead no one really knows where Barack Obama was, except for the ilk hiding the truth.
Once again Obama has been invisible, off the world stage after a major crisis where world leaders gathered in solidarity, including polar opposites Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
More than 40 heads of state showed up in France this past weekend to denounce the wave of terrorism that left 17 innocent people dead and others wounded. However, the country that symbolizes, or once did, the war on terror after 9/11 attacks in New York City went unrepresented.
By all accounts Obama and VP Biden had open schedules and certainly could have rearranged commitments to show solidarity against terrorism if they saw fit. John Kerry, presumed US Secretary of State was in India and thought the dust up is merely “quibling.”
“We have offered, from the first moment, our intel, our law enforcement and all of our efforts, and I really think that, you know, this is sort of quibbling a little bit,” Kerry told NBC News.
Not to worry, the US ambassador to France, Jane Hartley, receiving that position as a reward for raising more than $500,000 in campaign funds for Obama, made an appearance.
Spokes Idiots for the administration were full of excuses as well as other foreign objects of relative distaste such as security issues, too much distraction, all which didn’t seem to detract other leaders as well as record crowds.
One protester held a banner with Voltaire’s most famous line:
“I do not agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death to defend your right to say it.”
And even from the heart of Brooklyn, bastion for Obama supporters filmmaker Leo Herrera, 33, in front of the Park Slope Food Co-op said:
“It will have a chilling effect that America did not show up (at the Paris rally). This goes into the heart of what free speech is, so we should have a really visible reaction. I don’t think Obama sent any message, and that’s the problem.”
The message may be Obama’s distaste for Jews, his pro-Islam stance, his lack of concern over national security with his open borders, walking away from Iraq and Afghanistan, and over all lack of policy to protect the nation and fight terrorism.
Barack Hussein Obama promised America he would “fundamentally transform” America back in 2008. Was it the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare? Was it new environmental regulations on the coal industry? Was it increased taxes? Was it……….fill in the blank!
Open borders can have different meanings. The Southern border with Mexico is an open border based on the flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico, South America, China and who knows where else.
The federal government is complicit in the illegal immigration fiasco not by ignoring and not enforcing the immigration laws already on the books but by using agencies to do the dirty work Obama plans on doing after the mid-term elections by Executive Amnesty.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Friday threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa. Yes, an open door policy slapping the law right in the face. This is merely the tip of the illegal immigration iceberg. The agency is procuring a printer that can handle able to handle a “surge” of 9 million green cards “to support possible future immigration-reform initiative requirements.”
In an ordinary year approximately 1 million green cards are issued through appropriate channels, however, a “surge” of 9 million in one year can extend out to 34 million over the life of a contract for work permits. This would be a 10-percent increase in the total American population. This is one more ploy by Obama and his Marxist ilk to increase the Democrat voting base. A permanent class of voter beholden to the whims of the Leftists who now own the Democrat Party.
The economics of this fiasco is typically not discussed but with the Left proposing a $15 an hour minimum wage available jobs will become unavailable as they diminish. The “workers” will end up receiving benefits for healthcare, schooling for their children, welfare payments, food stamps all paid for by citizens who pay taxes and further decreasing the pool of available jobs for those out of work and still seeking employment.
A whopping 74% of American citizens want this immigration by fiat to stop. The Obama administration could care less, they intend to steamroll immigration “reform” over the populace and let the chips fall where they may. This has been, and will continue to be a disaster of enormous negative consequence to the United States and we know it today.
A Republican Senate majority for the next two years will not stop this immigration of illegals. The GOP establishment is feckless and for the most part is all in for Obama’s immigration reform as written in the Senate “Gang of 8″ bill supported by Marco Rubio (R-FL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John McCain (R-AZ) who all participated in writing and approving this amnesty of illegals legislation. Given the opportunity the coward Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH) would gladly bring it to the floor for a vote and may do so if he receives a super-majority after the November election.
So called Tea Party candidates from 2010 have proved to be intimidated for the most part and judging by their voting records have towed the establishment line being bought out with assignments on committees. The word is already out, continue to fight the establishment in the House and you will suffer the consequences.
