Connection fail – 404 error
That sums up the Obama Presidency! Connection fail on Obamacare and silent resistance to accepting government as the provider is on the rise. Even the previously uninsured don’t want to participate. We’ve been told 5 million have signed on, that’s what is known in Obamaland as success. If that is success, what do they consider a major failure? All the “changes” made to Obamacare still leave little “hope” it will be successful.
When BO said the Constitution was full of negatives about what government is not allowed to do to you but, nothing about what government can do for you, it was a wake up call. He forgot to mention what his government was going to do to you which turns out to be a whole lot of harm. His type of draconian government has become a detriment to free people throughout the world. Does anyone remember how he treated the Hondurans when, following their Constitution, they managed to get rid of a dictator-for-life? BO demanded they re-install him or have their aid cut off. He supports the Muslim Brotherhood to the detriment of Egypt, supports the Palestinian goal of domination over Israel, lacks the courage or will to step up on Syria and Iran and plays appeasement politics. He has turned the US Presidency into a weak toothless tiger. All of our allies see it and know how feckless and impotent he really is as CIC. American might made the world a safer place for everyone
Secretary of State John Kerry mumbled that Putin was guilty of 19th century behavior in the 21st century, but it’s actually Kerry who is guilty of 19th century behavior. President Woodrow Wilson had lived through the Civil War. His father had owned slaves. Lord Balfour’s godfather was the Iron Duke who had defeated Napoleon. Georges Clemenceau narrowly avoided being locked up by Napoleon III.
The League of Nations was the successor to a 19th century organization and the men who conceived it and built it had largely been born in the 1850s and 60s. They weren’t 20th century men building a better world, but 19th century men inflicting ideas that were already outdated on the modern world.
Their ideas didn’t work then and they don’t work now.
The bewildered responses to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine are a naïve piece of theater that should have been retired in the 19th century, but somehow endures into the 21st as the lovers of peace insist on guaranteeing an end to aggression based on worthless pieces of paper that they have no intention of defending by armed force and then act surprised when their bluff is called and they frantically scramble to convince their own people that peace has been secured for our time.
Alexander Cadogan’s blunt statement remains relevant today. The Pax Americana is over. We have been living on bluff and Putin called it. [snip]
American might allowed the advocates of international law to live in an imaginary world in which their doctrines and documents actually matter. And now that they have finally succeeded in tearing down American strength and ushering in a post-American world, their own world will end.
I’ve said it before and will say it again, Romney was right.
There were signs that the media had begun to figure out that they’d been had–that the Obama White House talking points they were parroting were making them look ridiculous. As Russia took center stage on world affairs in recent months, Romney began receiving respectful hearings on liberal cable news outlets and a refrain of “Romney was right” could be heard bouncing around among the left. Now Vice President Joe Biden is visiting Poland on his own reassurance tour and Romney has taken to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to describe the strategic and diplomatic failures that led to this point. This morning, the New York Times’s Mark Landler tweeted:
Sitting in Warsaw reading Mitt Romney on POTUS: I think we can all agree the 80′s got its foreign policy back.
Romney’s op-ed in the Journal is being discussed as a classic “I told you so,” but Romney’s far too polite to say it. It’s also not necessary. Nonetheless, he certainly does criticize Obama’s leadership, noting that each time a potential crisis turns into an actual crisis, the president throws up his hands and defensively demands just what he’s supposed to do about it
Transparency in the age of Obama has come to a screeching halt. The reason?
It’s Sunshine Week, so perhaps some enterprising White House reporter will ask press secretary Jay Carney why President Obama rewrote the Freedom of Information Act without telling the rest of America.
The rewrite came in an April 15, 2009, memo from then-White House Counsel Greg Craig instructing the executive branch to let White House officials review any documents sought by FOIA requestors that involved “White House equities.”
As with most Americans I really wanted to be able to support our President and his endeavors but, it’s impossible. We have definitely not become a better society, a stronger undivided nation, or an economic powerhouse under BO. It’s more like being trapped in a cult, which there is no escape from, led by a passive/aggressive personality that would rather see everything destroyed than admit he was wrong on so many levels.
