Has anyone else noticed when Preezy gets in a tough spot he runs away? Mostly on vacations..
President Barack Obama, the hardest working man in show business, is planning a family weekend vacation in south Florida this Thursday.
May as well go to FL, that’s where MOOCH was anyway “doing god’s work”. Small ‘g’ because she is referring to BO.
In Miami, the first lady, dressed in a black patterned wrap-style dress, spoke to nearly a dozen enrollees and application counselors individually, high-fiving some for getting insurance, asking how long the process took (about 20 minutes for individuals and up to 45 minutes for a family). She encouraged counselors to stay busy and enroll as many people as possible.
“You’re changing lives. You realize that. … Keep it up,” she said, affectionately squeezing counselor Suze Diogene’s shoulder.
Before leaving, the first lady reflected on her time serving on the board of a community health center in Chicago, where she said she saw firsthand how primary care “can make a difference in the life of a community and a family.”
“These places are not easy places to run, but you are doing God’s work.”
This really ticks me off. Did they take all these vacations BEFORE BO was elected? How many vacations did they spend in Aspen, Florida, Hawaii, Martha’s Vineyard and all the others before he was Preezy? Did MOOCH go on safari, take a vacation in Spain or any other country before she “came into office” (quote Val-Jays words to Bill O’Reilly while being interviewed). When did anyone, right or left, vote MOOCH into office? Is she now the “c0-preezy” like Hill-Babe?
MOOCH is becoming the White House Ambassador to the world….love those pretend trips she takes to enlighten the world which turn out to be “family” vacations. Are the kids and granny going as ‘professionals’ in Chinese history or educational pros? Maybe they can teach those Chinese people a thing or two about dieting and Moooving and, how to educate their children. Mooch to China
Mrs. Obama will visit Beijing for four days and will meet with Madame Peng, wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping. The trip will take place from March 19 through March 26.She will be accompanied by her mother, Marian Robinson, and daughters Sasha and Malia. While they’re in Asia, President Obama will be on a trip of his own that takes him to Europe and Saudi Arabia.The White House said that, as with Mrs. Obama’s previous trips to Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America, she “will be focusing on the power and importance of education, both in her own life and in the lives of young people in both countries.”Mrs. Obama also will visit important historical and cultural sites in China, and will share with students in the U.S. the stories of the students she meets in China, “as well as interesting facts about China’s history and culture – emphasizing the importance of students learning from one another globally,” the White House said.The first lady will visit a high school and university in Beijing, and later visit a high school in the city of Chengdu.
The president will not be joining his family on what will be the first lady’s first visit to the Asian economic powerhouse.
In an announcement Monday on the White House blog, the first lady says a China visit is important because it is the most populous country in the world, with more than 1.3 billion people, and is an important world actor.
OH PLEEEZ! What the hell does China’s importance have to do with MO and her kids? Not a damn thing. She really is a MOOCH!
The president’s pricey travels have become so controversial that Judicial Watch was forced to sue the Secret Service and Defense Department to get them to turn over records on the amount of taxpayer money used to fly the First Family all over the world – in many cases for vacations or fundraisers – over the last two years of his administration.

- Obama traveled to Ukraine with Sen. Dick Lugar in 2005 just seven months after he became a senator, touring surplus weapons stockpiles
- Most of the small arms and ammunition were left over when Soviets withdrew from Eastern bloc nations, and later dumped in Ukraine
- The two senators secured U.S. funding to help destroy the weapons instead of leaving them intact
- Ukraine exported more than 700,000 small arms in 2004-2007, including 101,000 each to Libya and the UK, and 260,000 to the U.S.
- But most of the ammunition stockpiles – crucial for keeping a standing army battle-ready – were destroyed
- Ukraine is in a staring match with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has designs on recapturing portions of the former Soviet nation
- After a stopover in London, the senators returned to Washington and declared that the U.S. should devote funds to speed up the destruction of more than 400,000 small arms, 1,000 anti-aircraft missiles, and more than 15,000 tons of ammunition.
Wasn’t that nice of him to leave them helpless against Putin? Talk about “flexibility”. Putin says “the West” has inspired all of the mess in Ukraine….well, we know BO was part of Putin’s inspiration to invade that country. Now, he wants to decimate the defense budget and our military, just like he wanted in the Ukraine. Does anyone really believe this will turn out well? Just can’t make this stuff up….
If Putin isn’t stopped and doesn’t remove his “uncontested arrival” in the Ukraine, other Eastern European countries are also in danger. He will not stop there. Obama’s “flexibility” after the 2012 election ends. Time to be inflexible and step all over Putin and his accomplices. No negotiations, pay the price, make the oligarchs shriek with economic pain. Western nations begin cutting economic ties with Russia over Ukraine
Russian stock markets Monday crashed almost 10 percent and the ruble plunged to historic lows in value against the dollar and euro, as alarm grew over the potentially disastrous economic consequences of military intervention in Ukraine.
Russia’s central bank hiked its main interest rate in an emergency move to stem capital flight and the losses for the ruble, amid what risks becoming at least Russia’s worst economic crisis since 2009. …
Obama emboldened Putin by backing down on the missile defense system in Poland and Czechoslovakia so Hill-babe could have that “re-set photo-op. Putin playing chess, Obama playing marbles
I think it’s really the naive position on the National Security Council and the president’s advisors that if we just keep giving things to Russia, they’ll finally wake up and say, boy, the United States isn’t all that bad. That is completely missing the motivations of why Russia does what Russia does. And, again, they have an interest in expanding their buffer zones by influence — I don’t think by Russian occupation — but by influence in cases like the Crimea, I think Moldova next, and other places that it’s in their interest to continue to push out that buffer zone. And, by the way, the big one that started this was the absolute retreat on our missile defense system in Poland and Czechoslovakia. It caused huge problems for our allies and emboldened the Russians, and it really has been a downhill slide.
Every single thing BO touches turns out badly for someone. Every. Single. Thing. Magical thinking on foreign policy, BO walked right into it
Michael Singh, a former national security staffer, wrote in the Washington Post that the administration chose not to see a whole series of oncoming freight trains.
In Venezuela … in Syria … in Ukraine …” the administration ignored the obvious signs of trouble. “What contingency planning would have counseled, was … taking early, proactive steps to head off crises. In each case, the chosen policy has seemed designed to minimize risk and cost in the short run — but at the expense of greater costs in the long run. We have stood by as crises have deepened and problems grown harder to solve, and our prestige has waned accordingly.
To see it coming would have invalidated the fundamental premise of Obama’s foreign policy: that the train line was unobstructed; that he could talk to people he now knows he can’t talk to. For a while the deal making seemed too almost too good to be true and Obama marketed his “opportunities” and “investments” with almost evangelical zeal. Even now Obama plans to tell Benjamin Netanyahu that time is running out for Israel to make a deal with the Palestinians. One of those magic deals Kerry’s negotiated, like the one with Syria. He is figuring to tell the Israeli prime minister he had better buy now while supplies last or miss the deal of the century, the deal of a lifetime! Maybe he even plans to exhibit all the notices he’s received from his “partners for peace” about how close he is to grabbing the Big Brass Ring.
It’s almost too sad to watch. As the Washington Post editorial board just headlined, “President Obama’s foreign policy is based on fantasy”. And that’s a verbatim quote.
“Hope and Change” is not a good political philosophy. While some may argue about Putin’s mental stability, and they are, it’s always been his mindset. He is old school KGB. That tells us all we need to know. The greatest tragedy for Putin was the break-up of the Soviet Union, and he wants it back. Putin, unlike BO, is playing the long game….BO is just playing.
No matter how many times BO tries to change the subject, he loses. Dems up for re-election are tripping all over themselves to run from him and Obamacare. Reid had to table the minimum wage bill, not enough backers from either party to support the latest Obama stupidity. As a contractor, who has in the past worked under the auspices of the Federal government, there are regs that detail how much workers are to receive as payment. Under our contract laborers were required to receive $10.84 per hour. Obama’s “pen and phone” executive order is more distraction from the awful, unaffordable Obamacare. Dems are even threatening those patients who are speaking out over the burdens they now face.
But, there is some good news we can feel definitely cheered by like this one via Weasel Zippers. Remember the run on Walmart by people using EBT cards? Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people….
Louisiana’s social services department said Monday it has stripped food stamps from six people who deliberately overspent their monthly benefits when the electronic service was down in October and was working to disqualify another 25 people.
Details of possible fraud also have been shared with local law enforcement, for district attorneys to decide if they want to prosecute people for knowingly breaching the limits on their monthly food stamp benefits.
The Department of Children and Family Services said it continues to work through the administrative hearing process, targeting 500 people out of 12,000 transactions that overspent available food stamp benefits four months ago during the system crash.

Two Korean citizens in the United States illegally were sentenced last week in Baltimore to prison for obtaining over $1,400,000 in payments for food sales that never occurred as part of a food stamp and wire fraud scheme.
U.S. District Judge George L. Russell III gave Hyung Cho 38 months in prison and three years of supervised release and his mother, Dae Cho, 18 months in prison. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Maryland, “Both defendants resided in Catonsville, Maryland and are Korean citizens who are illegally present in the United States.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that the Chos “agreed not to object to any proceedings that may be brought to remove them from the United States upon completion of their sentence.”
Break the laws once by entering illegally, break more laws because, wth, they got away with it the first time.

The United States has expelled three Venezuelan diplomats in response to similar action against three U.S. consular officials in Caracas.
Venezuelan envoys First Secretary Ignacio Luis Cajal Avalos, First Secretary Victor Manuel Pisani Azpurua and Second Secretary Marcos Jose Garcia Figueredo, were given 48 hours to leave the U.S., State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday.

The subpoenas, obtained by the Washington Examiner, require them to be deposed at a Washington law firm, Blumenthal on March 11 and DeLauro on March 13. Both will be required to bring with them a broad range of documents, including any in their possession related to the SEIU.
DeLauro and Blumenthal have been publicly supportive of unionized health care workers in their state, and their visits to the picket line for striking nursing home employees presented the hook to connect them to the case, as the plaintiffs hope to examine the way the SEIU pursued its campaign behind the scenes.
House Oversight Comm. tells Lois Lerner to get her IRS back to the Hill on March 5th. via Daily Mail
a letter to Lerner’s lawyer on Tuesday, Issa set March 5 as the date she will have to answer probing questions about her role in the scandal – and possibly finger higher-ups who directed her to play political favorites and hamstring conservative applicants.
Lerner, who retired in September with full benefits after a brief period of administration leave, is ‘is uniquely positioned to provide testimony that will help the committee better understand how and why the IRS targeted these groups,’ Issa wrote.
‘The subpoena you accepted on Ms. Lerner’s behalf remains in effect,’ he told attorney William W. Taylor III.
‘In light of this fact, and because the committee explicitly rejected her Fifth Amendment privilege claim, I expect her to provide answers when the hearing reconvenes.’
…or have her IRS jailed if she doesn’t.

‘We love cookies but they’re not sufficient, we need to eat veggies to make our bodies efficient’: Michelle performs cringeworthy rap as she announces new rules to ban junk food marketing in schools [snip]
Aware of the backlash, the USDA is allowing schools to make some of their own decisions on what constitutes marketing and asking for comments on some options. For example, the proposal asks for comments on initiatives like Pizza Hut’s ‘Book It’ program, which coordinates with schools to reward kids with pizza for reading.
See that…..they all know how much their programs are despised.
Tuesday there was a blizzard, Wednesday digging out the four to five foot drifts (cars buried), Thursday high winds and rain (lost part of the roofing shingles), Friday more rain, and….here we are today. So many people whining about the weather that is “normal” for our area. The ‘January thaw’ now happening in February. Temps swung from 2 degrees on Tuesday to 51 on Friday. So much talk of ‘climate change’ has some convinced this weather pattern is abnormal, it isn’t. What the ‘media’ calls a “polar vortex” has always been known here as Canadian Clippers or an Alberta Clipper. It is not unusual for us to be at -20 in the winter months. Nor is it unusual for kids to use up the snow days allotted by the state. (we have 7 designated snow days). What is unusual is the amount of attention played out in the media. We have a saying here, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute or two…. it will change”.
Speaking of messes….MO calling the ‘millenials’ a bunch of “knuckleheads” didn’t go over very well. Those 20 somethings and 30 somethings already hold down jobs, purchase homes, raise their children and certainly don’t need the FFA to tell them how to do any of it.

Fresh off the slopes of Aspen and obviously unaware that her husband had just recently dissed students seeking a degree in art history and spoken in a drought-stricken area of the country, Michelle Obama headed east to New York City to attend an exhibition at Manhattan’s New Museum, which hosted an art show featuring street art that promotes drinking water.

We all know what a mess our government has become. From IRS targeting to the Obamacare crater that just keeps getting bigger, now joined by the FCC and the nosy Mignon Clyburn. But, when a 6 year old has to address the IRS and write a note to them in crayon? Letter from the IRS;
“Dear Mr. Smith: we don’t recognize Susan F. Smith as someone authorized to discuss your tax file. If you want Susan F. Smith to be authorized to discuss your return we suggest you go online and submit form 8892 and form, etc.”
Yes, your government is in the very best of hands.
Happy Valentine’s Day Little Birdies!
For the past five years the left couldn’t find one thing wrong with anything BO was doing. We were all “racist haters” denying the Preezy his full due. When we refused to go along to get along, we were vilified. Well, funny how it’s all beginning to change. ‘The Thing Speaks for Itself’
Legal scholar Turley now feels that it is incumbent upon him to appear on TheKelly File with Megyn Kelly to point out a minor detail that the “fundamental transformer” would probably be flattered to hear, which is that “the framers would be horrified because everything they did was to create balance between the branches of government, and we’ve lost that.”
Turley’s forewarning: “What we’re seeing now is the usurpation of authority that’s unprecedented in this country.”
The Tired Ones are admitting it is getting harder to “defend” Obamacare. Question of the day; Why do they feel the need to defend it anyway? If the law is so great it doesn’t need any defense from the left wing media. Their statements only prove what we have been saying for years, the LSM is definitely in the tank for whatever BO ‘decides’ is “fair and right”. Talk about belonging to a “cult of personality”. Giving a pass to the mess known as Obamacare because…..Obama!
Advocates for a strong executive branch, including me, have given the White House a pass on its rule-making authority, because implementing such a complicated law requires flexibility. But the law may be getting stretched to the point of breaking. Think of the ACA as a game of Jenga: Adjust one piece and the rest are affected; adjust too many and it falls.
If not illegal, the changes are fueling suspicion among Obama-loathing conservatives, and confusion among the rest of us. Even the law’s most fervent supporters are frustrated.
Speaking of ‘usurping authority’, IRS ObamaCare “self-attestation” for businesses: adding irrationality to lawlessness. BO just making it up on a daily whim. “I’m the President. I can do anything I want”.
In other words, the legal justification for this “self-attestation” springs from an illegal action by the Obama administration, as a means to include the company in the increasingly-arbitrary application of regulation based on ignoring the statutes of the law itself. It’s lawless lunacy, certainly. But as I argued in my column, that’s precisely the outcome predicted by Hayek in The Road to Serfdom.
Obama terrified me from the very beginning of his run for the Presidency. he made no sense, his speeches were filled with nonsense, he self glorified, the adulation for him as a candidate was insane (and still is). Obama’s cult of personality has turned US into ‘a nation of enablers’
It’s been apparent from the moment Obama claimed what he called a “historic” Democratic nomination victory in a June 3, 2008, speech in St. Paul, Minn., when he said that “this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our Image as the last, best hope on Earth.”
The cult of Obama adoration has since become so unbearable the White House press corps revolted last year, denouncing the government-funded propaganda that puts the president front and center into everything, even celebrations of pivotal historical events such as the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy‘s assassination.
It’s gotten to the point where it’s moved beyond ridicule into self-parody.
Never thought I would agree with the Iranians on anything…. Mocking Obama
So this is my foreign policy advice to the Americans when dealing with Iran: First of all, Mr. Obama, don’t waste a ton of bricks. I sense a personal problem here… Instead of wasting a ton of bricks, take just one brick, and knock it against your head. Perhaps parts of his brain will swap places, and his perspective will change.
BO should be impeached….his lawlessness and disregard for the Constitution is a price none of us, Dems or Repubs, should tolerate. Democrats had better think long and hard, they won’t be the “majority” forever. BO has set a precedent neither party should go along with just to get along.
MO and BO don’t seem to understand that one. Some in the media are finding it most difficult to “defend” BO’s lawlessness when it comes to changing “settled law”. Over 60% of the population absolutely perceive BO as a “liar” and a “crony capitalist” sucking the life out of the middle classes. His socialist policies have done nothing to spur the economy. He stubbornly sticks to policies that are outdated and do absolutely nothing to move the economy forward. Heavy handed regulations that favor his cronies to the detriment of all of society (think Keystone and Warren Buffet). Is it any wonder the LSM is having a hard time defending him? His pompous attitude came shining through when he told Hollande “I’m the President, I can do anything I want to do”. That would include changing Obamacare 28 times to fit a political agenda. He knows as the “first black President” he can pretty much get away with anything because……racism. He uses the color of his skin as political clout with the help of the Progs in Congress and the LSM. He’s a horrible President, thin skinned and ugly.
A picture is worth a thousand words. With millions of Americans unemployed/underemployed, ostentation is not a very good idea. Every single event seems to call for a new gown, a very expensive one to be sure. Of course, none of her other gowns would have fit with the Monet themed dinner.
Michelle Obama’s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left.
Speaking of Stunning Insensitivity, “ millions of Americans are mired in unemployment, underemployment, and hopelessness. So in the face of all this, Michelle Obama has chosen to tweet on the FLOTUS twitter account a picture of her dogs dining on china and crystal:”

Hours after Trader Joe’s pulled out, PAALF leaders arrived at a previously scheduled press conference trying to process what just happened. The group re-issued demands that the now-cancelled development include affordable housing, mandated jobs based on race, and a small-business slush fund. Instead, the only demand being met is two fallow acres and a lot of anger from the people who actually live nearby.
“All of my neighbors were excited to have Trader Joe’s come here and replace a lot that has always been empty,” said Nghi Tran. “It’s good quality for poor men.” Like many residents, Tran pins the blame on PAALF. “They don’t come to the neighborhood cleanups,” he said. “They don’t live here anymore.”
“There are no winners today,” said Adam Milne, owner of an area restaurant. “Only missed tax revenue, lost jobs, less foot traffic, an empty lot and a boulevard still struggling to support its local small businesses.” The store was to be built by a local African American-owned construction company.
Definition of stupid; giving six more government contracts to the company that screwed up Obamacare…..but, that is exactly what was done. The definition of crazy: CGI gets more government work after Obamacare flop
Considering the fact that CGI has cost the American taxpayer at least a half a billiion dollars in worthless product, perhaps – just a suggestion – they should have been banned for life from working on any federal contracts every again.
But the idea that CMS, a division of Kathleen Sebelius’ Department of Health and Human Services, would cancel its other pending contracts with CGI “does not reflect the relationship that CGI has with CMS,” a CGI spokesman told TheDC.
Even WaPo is suggesting they have a big disadvantage mostly due to BO and Obamacare. If BO refuses to deal with KPL, their days will be numbered. 2014 Senate races may be a referendum on Obama; if so, Democrats should worry
Obama is deeply unpopular — with a disapproval rating higher than 55 percent — in five states: West Virginia (67.3 percent disapproval), Montana (60.9 percent), South Dakota (59.3 percent), Arkansas (57 percent) and Alaska (55.4 percent).
Beyond those five seats, there is a second tier of states where the president’s disapproval rating stands somewhere between 50 percent and 55 percent, including: Iowa (50.1 percent disapproval), New Hampshire (50.2 percent), North Carolina (50.4 percent), Colorado (51.2 percent) and Louisiana (53.9 percent
Trying to escape the WONs is nearly impossible. Puppy Bowl X
This year’s historic tenth Puppy Bowl proved its impeccable pedigree with a showcase of animal aptitude that went beyond all the trophies and ribbons. This special event brought out celebrities such as First Lady Michelle Obama, The Muppets, and perma-kitten / internet celebrity Lil Bub. The talented Keyboard Cat tickled the ivories through the Bissell Kitty Halftime Show, and members of the New York’s Police K9 Unit were on-paw to salute first-responders during the National Anthem. Meep the Bird was there once again to tweet out all the excitement on the field, while kitties sat perched on skybox seats and penguin cheerleaders led the wave. Puppy Bowl X also took time to look back at pups from the past, including Puppy Bowl IX MVP Marta.
One big event during the show seemed eerily familiar to sports fans, when the lights went out in the stadium. Dogs can see in the dark five times better than what a human can, but still, doggone it, we want to see the fur fly too! Luckily, a crew of hamsters jumped in and spun the wheels to get power going again for the fourth quarter. Loren tied a Puppy Bowl record with four touchdown runs. Also, for the first time in Puppy Bowl history, a Field Goal was scored when Shyla booted a ball past the uprights with her paw. Still, perhaps the most memorable moment of the show wasn’t about terriers running touchdowns or White House residents leading a Funky Chicken dance …
Yes, there she was in all her “toned and fit” glory….MO doing the funky chicken. Those people (BO and MO) are hard to escape. I certainly hope the WONs do not think they have a “forever home” in Big White.
It is becoming so tiresome to hear and see them droning on about “them” and their sycophants in the LSM lapping it up like a bunch of groupies.
We have BO to thank for this too. Khameini wants to “punch John Kerry’s face“, the Saudis snub a Congressional Delegation, and Syria has given up less than 5% of their chemical stockpile. via the Examiner
The snub stems from Saudi anger over what they see as President Obama’s weak response to the Syrian civil war and U.S. attempts to get a nuclear deal with Iran, according to the staffer. The Iranian negotiations are most troubling to the Saudis, according to the aide, saying they think Obama is being “shortsighted” in his strategy for preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
Gulf Arab states have been watching with grave concern Obama’s hopes to negotiate an end to Iran’s nuclear program, even as the regime gets closer to obtaining a weapon. Many, especially Saudi Arabia, see Iran’s ambitions as an existential threat.
No one in the ME trusts the Administration or the State Dept, No one. In the meantime, Lebanon is under attack as well, both from inside and outside.
Iran on Thursday dismissed as “unrealistic and unconstructive” comments by US President Barack Obama that international sanctions linked to its nuclear programme had forced Tehran to the negotiating table.
“The delusion of sanctions having an effect on Iran’s motivation for nuclear negotiations is based on a false narration of history,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham was quoted as saying by state broadcaster IRIB.

Again the Keystone Pipeline gets a pass. There are no major environmental problems, just 40,000 jobs on the line.
A key State Department review gave the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline a major boost on Friday, raising no major environmental objections — in a report that immediately cranked up pressure on the Obama administration to approve it.
“This report from the Obama administration once again confirms that there is no reason for the White House to continue stalling construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline,” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement. ”So, Mr. President, no more stalling — no more excuses.”

About that Russian nuke deal; Obama Knew Russia Was Cheating on 1987 Treaty When He Proposed New Arms Cuts in Berlin
The revelation of Russia’s cheating–and President Obama’s tolerance for it–is crucial for two reasons.
First, it highlights the failure of the “reset” policy, which was driven by the political self-serving and strategically naïve assumption that strained relations with geopolitical rivals was solely the fault of the asserting posture of the Bush administration.
Second, the President’s dogged persistence in offering new concessions to the Russians even as he knew they were breaking the 1987 treaty undercuts his promises to enforce a nuclear deal with Iran.
The Times also notes that Secretary of State John Kerry was briefed about the issue as a Senator but has not raised it with the Russians since his appointment.
There is little reason to believe that a president who rewards Russia’s treaty violations would fulfill promises in his State of the Union address to “be the first to call for more sanctions” against Iran for violations of the deal that went into effect for six months on Jan. 20. When President Obama says he is “ready to exercise all options,” he evidently means to include further concessions to Iran.
What a miserable loser we have for a President, both domestic and foreign policy stinks.
BO used every word in Webster’s and said nothing at all. His anecdotes were lifeless and his tone less then convincing. He sounded bored with it all. Obama’s Mismatched, Misfit State of the Union Is In the Books
President Barack Obama spent more than an hour sweeping between a laundry list of proposals, anecdotes to hide his failures, and what can only be called lies about the state of the union. He took credit for an energy boom that he not only had nothing to do with, but that he has actively tried to stop. He touted Middle East policies that will end with an Iranian nuclear weapon and radical Islamists in control of at least one other state in the region, if not several. Obama never mentioned Pastor Saeed Abedini, the American who is imprisoned in Iran. He pushed for minimum wage hikes that won’t create jobs and may price some jobs off into robotic replacements, and which would only impact about 4% of the American work force. Meanwhile, the labor participation rate in Obama’s economy is still at a historic low. His record on jobs is awful.Obama stood before a joint session of Congress and told them that he was done with them. He told them that he intended to sideline them whenever he can. And the Democrats elected to that body, who are supposed to defend its constitutional responsibilities and powers, cheered.
