A President Who Is Rooting for Chaos

CutsIn my last column I said that President Obama was a “deeply cynical man.”  I now have second thoughts in light of the White House warning that because of sequestration we should expect long flight delays and a general disruption in air travel. Unfortunately for Mr. Obama my second thoughts are exactly the same as my first thoughts.  He is a deeply cynical man.

Mr. Obama is not only out to scare everybody about a tiny cut in the growth of our out-of-control spending — $85 billion out of a $3 trillion-plus budget — I think he actually wants long lines at airports, and criminals being set free for lack of money to prosecute them, and massive layoffs and all the rest.  I think he wants the most hardship to the most people so he can secure the most political points.  I think he is rooting for chaos because he knows the American people won’t blame him, not a majority of them anyway.  The Republicans will get the blame and in 2014 he may very well get the House – to go along with the Senate.

You know what that means?  It means Mr. Obama would then be able to do whatever he wants and it will be called democracy in action.  Higher taxes on success that might discourage investment that would create jobs, more money for green energy that won’t produce much energy, more money for early education programs that don’t work, a minimum wage that might cost young workers a job, increase in cap-and-trade programs for carbon emissions that might slow the economy and put people out of work, new housing incentives, new manufacturing incentives, new, new, new, more, more, more, money, money, money.

This can only work, as I pointed out in my last column, if there are enough clueless people out there who know nothing about the economy but are certain that they love Barack Obama and will support any idea he comes up with. And there are.  We live in the United States of Clueless.

All the president has to tell these low information voters, as Rush Limbaugh calls them to avoid using the word “stupid,” is that he’s for “compromise” and they swoon.  All he has to say is he wants to close “loopholes” for people who fly around in private jets and buy yachts, and they say “right on, Mr. President.” Except closing those loopholes wouldn’t keep the government going for an hour … and there’s also that inconvenient fact that whenever big liberal government goes after private jets and yachts it’s the blue collar workers who build them who get hurt a lot more than the “plutocrats” who get around in them.

I also think President Obama doesn’t care one bit about deficits and debts.  I think he is a community organizer at heart.  He thinks the poor are getting the shaft and the rich have more than they need.  His entire philosophy can be summed up in four little words:  “Spread the wealth around.”  That’s why I’m also convinced that he has absolutely no interest in cutting spending in any serious way.

So will the slobbering love affair last if Barack Obama gets his way and keeps on taxing the successful and spending money we don’t have?  Will the love affair last after it becomes obvious that he can tax the rich all he wants and it won’t get us out of the debt and deficit whole that someday will sink the economy?

In the short run, the answer, I think, is yes.  Ignorance is a powerful force.

But if the sequester goes into effect and chaos doesn’t reign — if the scare tactics are exposed as just that — Mr. Obama will look like the boy who cried wolf.  But he’ll get away with that too.  For a while.

But if he continues to believe, as he reportedly told House Speaker John Boehner, that “we don’t have a spending problem,” if he continues to minimize our deficit and debt, then the house of cards will come crumbling down as sure as the sun rises in the east. And the people he says he cares about the most will be the ones who are hurt the most.

A president would care about these things.  A community organizer … not so much.

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries
    to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here”. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” ~ Senator Barack H. Obama,
    March 2006

    BUT ” OH YOU CASSANDRA!!” Thus spake Jerry Seinfeld to Elaine when she brought bad, unbelievable news to him. Our latest Cassandra is Paul Ryan with his graphs that show the huge growth in the interest on our national debt….while no one gives him any credence. The people would prefer to believe the bulaia in chief Barack Obama!! Ho! Da curse of Cassandra on the Republicans!!
    “I told you so” after the fall of America would be the totally insufficient tonic of being right by sour grapes.

  • worldwatchers

    None of you really understand what Barack Hussein Obama is about. He is total chaos because that’s how he plans to make his world. To him it would be pleasure to see American cities burn to see Israel burn. America
    has hit the tipping point. With the combination of media that includes Hollywood and video games with education that involves teaching American children the wrong values and we can’t forget about the unions. They are the force that will help propel America to its doom.

    The beauty of the sequester for Barack Obama is that the
    country is going to suffer due to his policies, just as it is suffered for the
    past four years but now he can blame everything on the Republicans and the
    sequester. Because the American people don’t care about the fact it was his
    suggestion and he and Harry Reid were the architects. American people are so
    foolish but it’s not their fault they don’t know any better and that’s very
    sad.

  • gbandy

    Who in their right mind cannot see the vindictive behaviour of this terrible excuse for a President. He is more interested in dividing this Nation than he is of being a leader of the greatest country in the World. Now just look at his “ackomplishments”. Obamacare? Well the costs will be trillions higher than anticipated and of course of the falsehoods and flat out lies will be coming to haunt us all. Benghazi? Imagine any other President campaining while Americans dies and our embassy burned. All overed up over lies upon lies even Rice. Now Sequestation. He allows the release of hundreds if not of thousands of illegals criminals. Why to hurt and punish the American People. Now he can give $250million to our sworn enemies, The Muslim Brotherhood, yet close the Whitehouse for tours. Gosh what does that save? Obama is a disgrace to this Nation a must be a embarrasment to anyone who voted for him.

  • Paul Courtney

    Bernie: Agreed. And Obama’s approach can only work with the full co-operation of a well-educated but low-information progressive press. Recognizing that the worst case for Obama is the lack of chaos, the cuts will be very carefully made. There’s an old joke about seeing a road crew with 6 workers, five guys watching one guy work. Ds are cynical enough to figure out how to manage the sequestration so the guy who works is the one laid off. The press is enamored enough to make the story into the stingy Rs unwilling to pay for infrastructure.

    Absolutely correct assessment and if I may add that Obama is also a classic megalomaniac that will soon take off the mask and reveal he’s also a sociopath.

    • paperpusherj

      In my opinion your assessment of Obama is correct. Unfortunately the leaders of China,Russia and Korea have their own psychological assessments that also show your conclusions. Megalomaniacs are risk averse not willing to do anything that might risk their image of how others see them. That is why obama has not ventured into the role of CEO of the Country, to many ways people can measure how well he is,or not doing.

  • Iklwa

    President Obama, in his progressive little red heart of hearts, is totally committed to the idea that all of mankind’s problems can be addressed by a government program of one sort or another. He believes (and has said so) that the Constitution is problematic because it limits the power of the government (and his administration). The out of control spending is an intentional attempt to completely collapse the American economy.

    When all systems have broken down and the citizens are crying “The government is broken. We need help and the only way to get that help is to
    place more power in a centralized government controlled by the few rather than
    the deadlocked many (Congress), he or another of his ilk will be able to
    control all flow of wealth within the country. Only at that point will the goal
    of redistribution of wealth and true social justice be realized. (Read the
    books student Obama read)

    We can not be overtly led in the direction of socialism as there are still vestiges of the American Spirit alive. Time and attrition will alleviate those “problems” barring our way to the Great Socialist Utopia awaiting us all.

    I saw a bit on O Reilly the other night showing how Americans are becoming more accepting of liberal agendas including queer marriages, recreational drug usage and other historically un-American ideologies. The 800 pound gorilla we are not acknowledging is the fact that as our older population passes away and more of our youth are indoctrinated by leftist educators; the Left in this country will win unless fundamental changes occur beginning in our local school boards.

    Wasn’t it Obama who said when asked about sequestration during the presidential debates… “it’ll never happen?”

    Flashback Nov. 2011- Obama promises veto of efforts to get around sequester cuts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqD2h7e_MLg

    Now it’s a major catastrophe but Congress can’t be found. 750,00 jobs will be lost overnight. No first responders. No food inspectors. People on the streets starving.

    …Obama was so distraught, the only consolation he could find was playing golf with Tiger Woods.

    How can he’s now say with a straight face he’s against sequestration when he and Jack Lew were the ones who came up with the idea in the first place?

    He wants to break the agreement he created, endorsed with bipartisan support in Congress, and NOW blames those meat-cleavers, harmful cutting, (aka Republicans) for the debacle while the MSM sits idly by seeing no incongruity!

    He uses the same underhanded, deceitful, tactic when he wants the debt ceiling raised. Even though the government takes in $2.4 trillion a year in taxes; what’s the first thing out of his mouth?

    “I can’t guarantee you those Social Security checks are going to go out.”

    BTW…You ever wonder… why is the focus on hard working people who earned Social Security instead of the 47 million “leeches” who sit on their a– getting a welfare check? I have video after video using his own words proving he’s an habitual liar. Yet he still has the ability to play the majority of the voting public for suckers.

    Bottom line. We have a totally inept Congress. One which cannot follow the rules they themselves laid down.

  • Wheels55

    At one time I wondered if Obama worried about his place in history. The decisions that he made (or did not make) would paint him as less successful than what the media reports now. But I realized that he is content with being the first black (half black) President and to point fingers at others for failure under his watch. Why would I think that he would ever take responsibility for failures under his watch, even in retirement? He and his wife clearly enjoy being on TV as the popular first couple. So, will the media finally wake up years from now? Sadly, not most of the media unless they have a new popular President to slobber over and defend.

  • FloridaJim

    Obama and his media is a powerful twosome and requires Conservatives to fight him daily on every venue possible not with platitudes and nonsense but facts well stated and accurate. We must start talking directly to his voters not through some other source to black. Hispanic and young people we need a powerful voice among them and I don’t see that person, yet. Only by doing this can we get to his voters who take as citizens and give nothing or very little.

  • Kathy Barkulis

    Yes, chaos is an advantage for this president. It helps to perpetuate the victimization of so many Americans who will falsely think they need him and the Democrat party to survive. It will kill their incentive to pull themselves up and fend for themselves, and to achieve and realize the rewards of self reliance.
    The irony is that he wouldn’t want his own children to live their lives that way. He wouldn’t want his daughters to become ‘Julia’s’ relying on the government for their own survival. No, to the contrary, he would want his daughters to work hard, become successful, and fend for themselves. Yet perpetuating a victim society is ok for the rest of us in his playbook.
    Michelle Obama goes on speaking engagements encouraging young people to become nurses and firefighters. Let’s see if her daughters become nurses or firefighters. Won’t- Ever-Happen.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000505536200 Madge Henderson

    Goldberg believes that Obama REALLY wants long lines at the airport, criminals set free, mass layoffs, and “all the rest”. Really Mr. Goldberg? What if I said Cheney/Bush deliberately scared citizens after 9/11 with the possibility of future terrorist attacks so they could be re-elected in 2004? Oh wait, they did. Okay, how about the extreme that they lied to the American people so they could engage our troops in the war in Irag to further their neo-con agenda? Oh wait. They did. If Obama is indeed exaggerating the effects of sequestration, it’s kid’s stuff compared to the GOP.
    So closing the loopholes won’t amount to that much. Just as raising taxes on the 1% isn’t going to make a difference. And yet, the Right continues to ask Liberals, how we manage our household budgets when we have more money going out than coming in. I’ll tell you. I make small cuts here and small cuts there and pretty soon, I’ve closed the gap. True it’s going to take more than small cuts here and there for the Federal Budget but clearly we’re getting nowhere. And why is that? Why is the Congress going on vacation? Why aren’t they compromising? They did it last time at the last minute and wasn’t it Speaker Boehner who said he got 98% of what he wanted? So what’s he afraid of? Could it be he’s being squeezed between the Tea Party on one side and Eric Cantor on the other? And this helps the country how?
    We have a love affair with Obama? I wouldn’t go that far but I will say our feelings for him are alot stronger than the Right’s affection for Mitt.. How long will it be before you develop a case of amnesia like you have for Bush? What’s that? Mitt who, you ask? I’m right there with ya! If only I could clear my head of his rendition of America the Beautiful! Gad that was awful!

  • http://profiles.google.com/tbfh1955 tb thomas

    Mr. Goldberg, you’re almost there. He wants chaos alright, but like 99.9% of the pundits who try to make sense of this President, you all attempt to rationalize his behaviour in terms of a perhaps onerous, but in the end, rational political purpose.

    Obama is out to dismantle and demolish this country as we know it. Sound crazy? Not if you know you’re the one who gets to sift through the rubble and re-assemble that which comes after. We elected an all consumed narcissist, a personality disorder which has now morphed into full-blown megalomania. He is counting on his political opponents, as well as the useful idiots who imagine themselves to be his esteemed supporters, to underestimate what he is capable of — and so far, most of you are obliging him. It’s as if we elected Mikhail Gorbachev’s evil twin, and he’s doing to our democratic republic what Gorbachev did to the totalitarian Soviet state.

    If you will indulge me by reading this expanded quote from Sir John Dalberg-Acton’s famous aphorism on the subject of ‘power':

    I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike
    other men, with a favourable presumption that they did no wrong. If
    there is any presumption it is the other way, against the holders of
    power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility has to
    make up for the want of legal responsibility. Power tends to corrupt,
    and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad
    men, even when they exercise influence and not authority, still more
    when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by
    authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the
    holder of it.

    We have slightly less than two years to figure out how to restrain, eviscerate and neutralize this political pathogen. I have yet to see even the faintest outline of the leadership necessary to accomplish that.

    President Obama is correct, our leaders should not spend their time moving from an economic or fiscal crisis to another. It almost seems as what now passes for governance is limited to dealing with the fabricated crisis of the month. This latest “crisis” was precipitated by the GOP insistence on spending reductions as a condition to agree to raise the debt ceiling two years ago. I guess we should be thankful they did not do the same when the debt ceiling was raised 18 times when Ronald the Merciful was in office, or when it was raised 7 times while W the Puppet was chopping wood in Crawford.

    if President Obama is a DO NOTHING, why are people like you constantly criticizing everything he does? He hs proposed more legislation and achieved more goals in four years than his predecessor did in eight, with a Republican controlled Congress during his first six years in office. President Obama’s record, in spite of all the obstructionism and demonization, is among the best in modern history. That’s one of the reasons people like you hate his guts, but the main reason is because He is black!

    Racist! Racist! Azzhole!
    What’s the story exactly? This is the same stuff that the SEIU and other ‘community organizing’ organizations do. What’s the surprise?
    Why? Does the President lose his 1st Amendment rights when he takes the oath of office? Otherwise, the man can endorse anything he wants. This is America.

Your continued reference to the FLOTUS as “Moochelle” shows a lack of character as well as a diminished intellect.

    I agree. Everything he has done points to this. We joke about his inability to do anything, but it’s his inability to do anything that’s good for the country. This was his mission – to bring down the most powerful nation on earth. The Book: “The Post American World,” by Fareed Zakaria, is his focus. To Bring American Economy (Captialism) to it’s knees so Muslim & UN countries can take over our economy is the Point. All other countries need our natural resources – none more than the Middle Eastern Countries, the leaders of which consider Obama, the Muslim, to be their brother or son.
    So the piddly problems with sequestration are just baby steps to his goal, distroy everything American and Make the United States of America Over in the image of The New World Order.

    I don’t know if I agree with the “cynical” adjective as being the most apt description. I belive that he is driven by the inequality he sees as the deeply unjust result of capitalism – that emotion overides the logic of capitalism providing a higher standard of living for everyone, even those in the lowest socioeconomic classes. He would sacifice a higher standard of living for the lower classes in order to achieve a more balanced distribution of wealth. In addition to leveling wealth, he also seems to believe there should be retribution against the high achievers since they have obviously exploited the low achievers.

    Re: The Community Chaos Organizer, I’m glad that you Oreilly and hopefully the public are finally waking up and smelling the coffee. Glenn Beck warned us all two years ago, on his program on Fox of what was coming and connected all the dots, about the Rules for Radicals being applied to bring down our country, destroy our economy, pit us against each other, use the Green agenda to do what he said he would do “fundamentally transform America” and also a campaign quote:”Under my plan, the cost of energy will necessarily skyrocket!” Apparently no one watched or listened to their fellow Fox employee, until what he said would happen actually started to happen! I do concede that it is a difficult concept for Americans to accept: That we have now elected TWICE, a President who is Anti-American, and does the exact opposite of what he says, has his own agenda, and could care less what 50% of the citizens think, want, or feel! I was ready to throw up last night when trying to watch the Oscars, and sure enough, right at the end UP pops Michelle Obama. We can’t even watch the Super Bowl or the NBA, or the World Series without one of the Big O’s imposing themselves into the event! They are like flies on fertilizer, they’re everywhere!

    This “Guy” is living off chaos; and if there isn’t any; he will “create” one; much the same as his creation of “Jobs”! He is nor governing; he is acting exactly like a Union Boss! No Concern about the Electorate! Just do as “I” say! The man is really feeliing his oats; and with an admiring support; has crowned himself as King~!
    Mr. Obama; (Or whatever his name is), needs ro be cut off!
    The problem; HE has NO opposition! This Farce put forth by the Republican Party, is one of the reasons he is in office! He is playing the Republicans, Like a vituroso Violin Player! AND; They LOVE it!
    A bnew Start is needed!
    It can staert with the passage of HR 25; it’s called the Fair Tax!
    We can finance our Government with EVERYONE participating; and without any burdeon on any taxpayer!
    The particulars are available to anyone!
    Just getting rid of the income tax is worth anything!
    GOD; Bless America!
    In GOD, We Trust!

      What garbage! Stay away from Fox for a coupla hours will ya? Obama has not raised taxes on 98% of us. He has told the healthcare insurers they can no longer deny cancer care coverage for $$$$$ reasons. He went after BL after W. gave up in 2006. He has restored our proudest industry – autos- and restored FEMA. How does that not square with The Ten Commandments?

        They really gave you the kool aid in a bath lol.

  • KCGranny

    I’ve believed for some time that BOs approach is intentional. He is NO leader but motivated to teach this country a lesson for what he believes to be transgressions against class more than race. He and his vile campaign helpers have championed what may be a war between classes and maybe even race. Even I am beginning to feel some racial resentment that I had not felt before. Bernie is correct in BO’s desires to create chaos to achieve his end. If even one of those theories floating out there are true, we are doomed.

      really? class warfare! where did I hear that? on the fair and balanced station? yeah, CLASS WARFARE = politely asking for the top 1% to go back to 39.6%.

      • KCGranny

        Obviously you were not paying attention to all the disgusting allegations and tactics made against “white” conservatives during campaign. You also must have missed the demonization, trashing the rich. You may be fine with the tactics used but they are common to leftist dictators. His tactics are to deliberately weaken the country and thereby realize the “Dreams from My Father” that he said he accepted as his own. Did you read his books? I don’t need a cable news station to tell me what he is about when he told me himself. If I want to watch that stuff, I’ll tune into the new state run media…MSNBC. Drones…surveillance bill signed and codified behind closed doors. watching us everywhere, coordinating w/Google/Facebook to spy on Americans. Buying more ammunition (some illegal) to kill citizens if there is a financial collapse. Bet you can’t explain the amo acquisition. But when you riot try to miss the hollow points.

  • ted

    And you are wrong about the “community organizer” and “poor people” crap. Why can’t smart people understand that it is — and OBAMA IS — ABOUT POWER, RAW POWER OVER YOU AND ME AND EVERYONE ELSE.
    JUST GET IT.

  • ted

    Obama’s strategy WILL WORK. The odds — and the important messengers — propagandists, if you will — are on his side. Yes, he will be the first American dictator.

  • superamerican

    He will CAUSE chaos and blame the Republicans. It will be reinforced by: school teachers, university profs, the vast media, the entertainers. It will become another effective spike in the heart of the Republican (“opposition”) party.

  • Chet Przygoda

    I agree but with one additional thought in mind. Chaos has long been used as a tool with which those who desire to control large groups of people can readily implement situations and events that a group (large or small) would consider to be so screwed up that they would need the intervention to be Divine to resolve the problem. I believe that Obama and his cohorts have been driving to create just such a situation so that they might literally take control of this country in a way similar to that was used in Germany just prior to WWII. It may sound crazy to believe that anyone would want to do such a thing here but a read of the English language papers from Germany published the ten years prior to the coming into power of the National Socialists so closely match what has been going on in this country it is, at least from some of us, just plain scary.

    • FrankC

      Example of accelerated crisis – Harvard Prof Gates setup – Obama gets away with making racial issue and gets away with it.

      Then poor Trayvon – wannabee macho future drug dealer fiasco. Zimmerman should get a medal. Scary – not even a white guy and he gets blasted for racism !! LOL Talk about sheep following the media. Hitler comparison is nOT out of bounds.

      There were previous less publicized incidents where Obama tested the limits and found he could lie imperviously to the public & response due to to media fawning would be minimal.

  • http://twitter.com/Melvin_Udall_ Melvin Udall

    This is all explained in the Cloward-Piven Strategy – clearly the playbook Obama is directly or indirectly following. Crony socialist funding, debt, chaos, dependence; all in combination add up to more power for Democrats. That is Obama’s one and only guiding concern. It doesn’t matter who suffers (Fast and Furious, Benghazi, inner city crime, etc.) for the long term “progressive” goal. He is trying to either achieve the progressive ends now, or lay a foundation that can’t be reversed.

    (Look for the picture of Clinton signing Motor Voter. Who stands behind him? Cloward & Piven. They are leftist royalty. Anyone not familiar with the Cloward Piven Strategy has no idea what’s going on.)

    Your observations are correct. Now if you would be so kind, please wake up luddite, head-in-sand, normalcy-bias Bill O’Reilly to what’s going on. For some reason I can’t fathom he clings to the idea Obama means well. Obama means no such thing. Obama genuinely loathes this country. Tell O’Reilly he needs to rewatch Schindler’s List and remember the National *Socialists* murdered Jews by incremental control – marginalize, disarm, congregate, outlaw, relocate, kill.

    And if *any* of what I just wrote sounds hysterical or far fetched, the reader is still asleep.

    • FrankC

      You’re right on target.. 20-30 million more of us and we might have a chance.

    • Toa

      A lot of people don’t want to accept this, but it’s true. There are no afterwords in Obama’s books which disclaim all the racism and Leftist radicalism contained therein, saying “I was just kiddin’!” We are in big trouble.

    • io9f

      I’ve been preaching ClowardPivenStrategy since Obama’s first year in office. Naturally, I’ve been called a nut.
      You’re spot on, Melvin!

  • RetiredSailor

    Why hasn’t Obama add selective cut authority to sequester as he did with immigration, through Executive Order?

  • gizmo

    Bernie, agree with you – NOW what do we DO about it? Those of us our here in the rank & file leagues of everyday people working our butts off every day, 50+ hours/week just to try to keep up, don’t have the time or energy (I’m staring 60 in the face) to keep up with the “community organizations” of no-jobs/free cell phones/free rent/Food stamps plethora!

    Bring us a LEADER who can & will stand up to these buffoons & thugs, who will hold the rudder so that when we man the oars we know which way we’r going….

    I just watched ‘Atlas Shrugged’ part two. I thought I was watch Fox News. Ayn Rand called it the ‘Fair Share Party’, boy was she ahead of her time. I can’t wait until part three comes out to see how it all ends. Good job Bernie!

  • floridahank

    I think you have to go deeper with the mindset of politicians and administrators to see what’s happening. Whether Rep. or Dem. remember that the money these people are spending is not theirs — it’s ours. Most of these people have never had a job that demanded accountability, making a profit, working within a balanced budget, etc. If they had jobs in a private, profit-making company, 90% of these jerks would be fired after the first year. The biggest problem of ours is that we don’t have term limits — at least we could get rid of the majority for at least 4 yrs, and give others (some with a logical financial mentality) a chance to break the chain of stupid spending habits. I would love to that the Rep’s stand up to Obama and don’t give in to his demands on these budget problems. He’s simply making a big deal out of something that logical people would solve easily.

  • trailbee

    This president doesn’t care one whit about anyone except himself. If he did, he would have organized the neighborhoods differently, encouraged people to raise educated children and helped neighborhoods to become drug free. He would have helped people get jobs and bring those jobs closer to their neighborhoods. This community organizer had only one thing in mind – keep ‘em dumb, fed and happy. He stayed only long enough for face/name recognition to set in and then it was hasta, see you at the polls. Cynical, no, conniving, yes.

  • Johnny Deadline

    Un-believe-able! The man that promised to stem the rise of the oceans and heal the planet can’t operate a calculator and work with Republicans to cut $85 billion out of a $3 trillion-plus budget. “Yes We Can” has met “Doesn’t Have a Clue” and given us “Sequestration Swamp.” There may be no “I” in team, but there is in “insipid stupidity.”

  • EddieD_Boston

    Count me as someone who, while I didn’t vote for him, was enthusiastic about Obama upon his first election victory. Now I’m someone who really dislikes the guy. I don’t buy the “I’m against his policies but I like him personally” argument anymore. The guy is just plain vile. Actions, as well as words, have meaning and Obama is a very vindictive, small minded person. Liberals are too irrational to see it but Obama has contempt for people he doesn’t agree with and I never thought that about GW Bush or even Bill Clinton.

    I even feel some of his hate is for white people and I think it’s encouraged by his wife, who from what I see and hear is flat-out racist. Yup, I said it…and mean it too.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1775150241 Bonnie Thomas Usrey

      Yes, Eddy. I didn’t vote for him, but I wanted him to succeed! I wanted him to be who he said he was, and do what he said he would. Anyone who thinks we’re a Racist Country should watch more NBA and NFL games, and come to Indiana for March Madness. The atheletes are all rewarded, loved and admired for their athletic abilities and the content of their character, just like MLK dreamed! We love Tiger Wood, if he’s a great golfer, we supported Condoleeza Rice as the first woman Secretary of State, color not considered, and my new hero is Dr. Benjamin Carson because he is speaking truth to power, and came up the hard way! Throw away the “race card” it doesn’t apply! Get over “slavery” Abraham Lincoln was a Republican!

  • John Detwiler

    That excuse of a real man is such a liar, that I fail to understand why he still gets away with it. He has been caught in so many lies that in normal circumstances would have heaped scorn on most. Yet this caricature of a president is awarded with addoration. All I can say is that an article I have naming liberals as verging on the edge of insanity, has to be true.

    • Bob From Virginia

      Actually there may be an explanation. Logic will not take out of a man’s mind what logic did not put there so forget looking for logical explanations for the electorate’s behavior. Obama was elected because he could inspire faith. When that happens it seems a physical change occurs in a person’s mind. As a result anything he does can be explained to his benefit. Here is an example, if a primitive people ask the gods for rain and it does not rain they assume that their faith was too weak or that they did not pray hard enough, and not that the gods do not exist. Obama has merely substituted himself for the gods in our society.

  • Seattle Sam

    You’re missing the broader motivation. Aspiring tyrants need to create a fear of chaos and a sense that they can provide protection in order to consolidate their power. This is exactly how the Mafia worked — and how the National Socialists took control of Germany.

  • JohnInMA

    I think Obama’s apparent cynicism is an artifact from his drive, uber-Nixonian, to defeat his enemies and gain the power he needs to make changes that he cannot now without a willing/complicit Congress. I can almost ‘feel’ his frustration at not being able to achieve all he wants through executive order, and he has clearly proven he isn’t willing to engage and negotiate with Congress. Even when they were run by his party!!! Just a guess, but since he has proven the media is overwhelmingly and eagerly in his corner, I think he perhaps believes that he can twist Congress to his will if he can get just enough Dems in seats. His trump card is “legacy”. Leveraging even the least willing Dem is possible by putting party above him and them (artificially), and the ‘enduring legacy’ of his terms. Of course, minions would do the leveraging if history is any indicator. One on one action just isn’t his style….

    • http://www.facebook.com/phil.silverman.9 Phil Silverman

      I think what you just wrote is cynical. Consider what a mountain of trash he was left with…and he’s done okay. Has had to pay trillions in Interest debt and unfunded wars. Are you offended that he used Romneycae (soliciting Romneycare experts) ion the writing of AHCA. Should he have FORGOTTEN about BL after W. obvioulsy did in 2006?

  • Patrick H.

    Agreed Bernie, President Obama’s “Chicken Little” routine is getting old. All this fuss over $85 billion dollars which is a drop in the bucket compared to what we’re spending now. If this much fuss is created over cutting $85 billion, I can hardly imagine how we can cut more to get spending under control.

    • http://www.facebook.com/phil.silverman.9 Phil Silverman

      Chicken Little? Yeah. You’re right. Something did rub off on Obama after all the Golf outings with Boehner.

  • Debdeb

    Maybe you are right. “Community organizing is a process where people who live in proximity to each other come together into an organization that acts in their shared SELF-INTEREST.” [WIKI definition] A community organizer wouldn’t care because it might not serve self-interest.

  • BSacamano

    Bernie, it’s so sad to see this country going down the tubes financially, while our leaders stand idly by and let it happen. This is way beyond a Democrat or Republican issue. At this point, they’re killing all of us. Obama obviously gets the most blame, but the guy has never run a lemonade stand, so it’s no wonder that he’s clueless about the debt and deficit. The people around him who know better, like Jack Lew and Tim Geithner, should be listed as co-conspirators for allowing this train wreck to happen without so much as a whimper of protest.

    If democrats and republicans cared about cutting spending, they would cut spending. That’s it. Much like if Obama had actually opposed the war in Iraq, he wouldn’t have voted to fund it all those times.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000505536200 Madge Henderson

      Yeah. He would have voted against a war that was already being fought so all you Righties could accuse him of not supporting the troops. He didn’t turn his back on the troops and voted the funding so they would have what they needed providing Rumsfeld changed his philosophy of “doing it on the cheap”.
