Slinging In The Rain

Slinging In The Rain

“Obama, with his presidency crumbling, is like a petulant child who wants to pick up his marbles and leave.” (The Presidency is Breaking Obama Even As Obama Has Broken the Nation)

“With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of postmortems. What went wrong, who’s to blame, what next — even The New York Times is starting to recognize that Dear Leader is a global flop.” (The media is turning on President Obama)

“Barack Obama has played almost 200 rounds of golf, no matter what crisis is ongoing. During this vacation, he played golf during a Ukrainian civil war, a conflict in Gaza, the beheading of innocent Christians by the terror group ISIS, and a five-day riot in Ferguson, Missouri.” (Obama Vacations, Golf’s, While American’s Riot and Die Abroad)

Why would anyone dislike Barack Obama? Could it be because of what he’s done in the White House? As you get a refresher on the national nightmare that has been Barack Obama’s presidency, keep in mind that the biggest difficulty in compiling it was limiting it to just 50 examples of corruption, dishonesty, and incompetence. (50 Things Barack Obama Has Done Wrong)

“Don’t bother me with this sh*t. Update Susan or take it to Denis. You know the drill.” Barack Obama

Though he still has a few friends in low places, Obama’s apologists are disappearing faster than Christians in Iraq.  When a Lefty is dissed by MSNBC, the New York Times and the French, he’s in trouble.  Obama, however, blithely plays through, duffer one day, dancing fool the next, treating the business of the nation as an inconvenience as he speeds off to the links or the bicycle path or the next fundraiser.

“Obama loves speaking but appears to loathe governing. Speaking is glamorous. Governing is boring and tedious. He constantly tells everybody else to ‘get to work’ while he is AWOL.” Eric Golub

After six plus years in high office, Obama’s qualifications for the job remain exactly what they were on Day One: a dogged adherence to sophomoric leftist ideology, a gift for teleprompted gab, and a semi-dusky complexion.  The preening narcissist who once promised to slow the rise of the oceans is flailing in the waters of his own incompetence, unable or unwilling to learn from his mistakes.  And he’s taking the rest of us down with him.

Robin WilliamsRIP

 Actor Robin Williams, who died Monday at age 63 of an apparent suicide, had visited both Afghanistan and Iraq in 2010 as part of a USO tour to bring entertainment to the troops during the holidays. But it was his visit to Kuwait in 2007, and how his military audience reacted during the retreat ceremony, that might have been the most memorable.

Williams was in the middle of entertaining service members on the evening of Dec. 6, 2007 at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait when the base’s retreat ceremony began. (Robin Williams A Beloved Figure On USO Tours)

No Sugar Tonight

Red Rosie

“Looking at the Senate, P.J. O’Rourke famously quipped that ‘The founding fathers, in their wisdom, devised a method by which our republic can take one hundred of its most prominent numbskulls and keep them out of the private sector where they might do actual harm.’ Of course, these days, the zaniest inmates have escaped their asylum …” (Our Increasingly Insane Political Class)

Connecticut’s state bird is the American robin. Given the representatives they persist in sending to Congress, they may want to change it to the cuckoo.   From the phony Vietnam veteran, Richard Blumenthal, to Rosa DeLauro, the cookie monster communist with the Moe Howard hairdo, the Transplant State is bidding fair to supplant Washington, D.C. as the most liberal territory in the Land of the Semi-Free.

Dems In The Drink

Big Ban Theory

“In a nutshell, Americans hate the President, hate the congress, hate the Democrats, hate the Republicans, and want to burn Washington, D.C. to the ground.” – Erick Erickson

the-big-red-onesDemocrats, whose only governing specialties are banning anything they don’t like and taxing whatever’s left, are in the drink.  Granted, they’re not in as deep as their inane “progressive” policies have put the rest of us, but that’s only because their retirement plans are so much more buoyant — and the sooner they get to enjoy them, the better.  But even that’s not a sure thing considering their Republican opponents seem to believe that life preservers filled with pink lemonade will keep the circling schools of increasingly desperate left-wing sharks with teeth like box cutters from sending them to the bottom.  As Richard Pecore says of the Pachyderms,

all they have to do is not screw up more than usual to win the Senate in November. That could be a tough task for the GOP, who can’t seem to tie their shoes, much less offer a viable presidential candidate. Their recent candidate history read likes a Who’s Who of losers — people like Romney, who was so unpalatable to conservative voters that 7 million of them stayed home on Election Day in 2012.

Establishment Republicans like Mild Mitch McConnell and Bawlin’ Johnny Boehner have thus far been unable to put up much of a scrap against seasoned grudge match groin-pullers like Dirty Harry Reid, Red Barry Obama, or even the bimbo from the Barbary Coast, that demented cat-scratcher Nancy Pelosi — and there’s a lingering suspicion, at least as regards the importation of droves of illegal aliens into the country, that the fight was fixed from the beginning.  After all, a corner that repeatedly empties the spit bucket on its own fans must have something other than winning on their minds.

The Democrats hold the White House and the Senate, and the Republican Party is spending more time fighting conservatives in their own party than they are fighting the liberals who are destroying our country. It’s time we realize that the Republican establishment hates us as much as they hate the liberals — maybe even more. (Mitt Romney Takes a Stand Against the Tea Party)

Romney, a politician only slightly more inspiring than a lukewarm glass of buttermilk, is apparently being considered for yet another run as the party’s standard bearer by what passes for the GOP brain trust.

The establishment believes that Romney lost because he went too far right in a country that is lurching left. Both suppositions are wrong. Romney lost because he represented everything conservatives (both Republican and Democratic) dislike in a candidate for President.(RINOs Can’t Figure Out Why Romney Lost)

 Mitt’s primary attribute is that he’s a nice guy, exactly the wrong kind of warrior to send into a political knife fight against the assembled character assassins of the Left.  As the old Brooklyn Dodger manager Lippy Leo Durocher once observed, nice guys finish last.

An Embarassment Of Glitches

Birthday Boy

“Instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English, you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish.” – Barack Obama

“By opening our borders to illegal immigrants, and pardoning those illegals already here as he plans through executive order, Obama will create millions of new citizens within a few years to help him transform America into a multicultural vacation land for the world’s footloose homeless with free food, housing, education, entertainment, and healthcare as drawing cards.” Douglas Hertz

“At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or been caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. by U.S. authorities between January 2014 and July 2014.” – Breitbart

It’s official.  What was once the Home of the Brave and Land of the Free has become the haunt of the knave, the LGB and T.  Oh, and the me:

In this week’s address, President Obama shamed Congress and extolled himself in what has become a predictable weekly practice. Referring to himself at least 10 times as practically the only one working hard for Americans, Obama declared his “top priority” the U.S. economy by promising to create more jobs and opportunities … (Obama: Me Me Me Me Me Me Me Me Me Me)

Funny how much “hard work” a man can get done whilst puttering about on the links — which is where America’s never-toiling Duffer-In-Chief once again spent his weekend (“A recent report in the New York Post revealed that since his 2012 re-election, President Obama has attended 75 fundraisers, and played golf 81 times.”Forbes):

Mike and MollycoddleMichelle Obama, or, as her husband calls her, “Michael,” famously remarked during the presidential campaign of 2008 that for the first time in her adult life, she was proud of her country.  Which coincidentally, was the first time the paying customers of America became ashamed of theirs — not to belittle the randy era of that draft-dodging Arkansas traveler Bill Clinton and his screech owl of a co-president, mortifying enough on its own merits.

But those two refugees from the Sixties are not even in the same league as Barack Obama, whose Manhattan Project of an administration is wreaking destruction on a hitherto unimaginable scale.  The checklist of Obamian-caused catastrophe grows lengthier by the minute and threatens to linger, like the smell of decomposing rats under the rotted floorboards of an once-magnificent home, long after its deadbeat tenant has finally left the premises:

Underhand and UnderwoodAnd we haven’t even mentioned the many scandals, a grab-bag of corruption diverse enough to make even Frank Underwood blush.

Unfortunately, it’s not just Obama. His seedy accomplices, or, as Sherlock Holmes might call them, the Napoleons of Slime, in the Socialist Democratic Party, continue to chip away at the foundations of American liberty, prosperity, and justice:

Based on their percentage of policy success, which is zero, the socialists Democrats oughta be quarantined along with suspected victims of the Ebola virus.  After all, both of ‘em will kill you.  It just takes the Democrats a little longer.

Why Do Fools Fall In Love?

Fundamental Transformation

“In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” – Barack Obama

Percentage of U.S. population that is Muslim – .o8% – Wikipedia

Try as I might, I just can’t recall any of the Muslim ‘achievements and contributions’ Barry refers to … unless it’s the recent ‘Kill the Jews’ demonstrations held in Chicago, Miami, New York, Boston, and Los Angeles, genocidal soirees sponsored by his dear friends in CAIR

In 2010, James Lewis wondered Why Do Jews Vote for Their Enemies?

American blacks vote Obama for the color of his skin. American Leftists vote O because they hope he will shaft this country more royally than anybody else has so far. So what excuse do the Jews have?

[...] With his favoritism for Muslims, by trying constantly to undermine the elected government of Israel and by constantly reaching out to a Hitler-wannabe in Iran, Obama has made it clear enough what side he’s on. His friends Jodie Evans of Code Pink and Bill Ayers agitated for the Gaza flotilla that turned into a planned PR disaster for Israel. His administration supports the grotesque and shameful farce of Iran, the Sudan, and Libya sitting on the U.N. Human Rights Council. Those are genocidal, torturing, and utterly reactionary regimes. And that’s just the start of Obama’s bitter hatred of Israel and Western values. There’s more coming — you betcha … Obama’s backed off now for the election, but he’ll be back at Netanyahu’s throat as soon as the election is past

Something isn’t right here. People usually don’t vote for those who hate them and who constantly act in alliance with genocidal haters like Hamas and the Iranian fascisti…

In 2012, Barack Obama received 69% of the Jewish vote.

Grounded

Sanctions

“Support for Israel is a minority opinion in the Democratic Party.” – William McGurn

“For years now it has been clear that Barack Obama is unusually hostile to the state of Israel and unusually sympathetic to or admiring of anti-Semites such as Rashid Khalidi.” – Quin Hillyer

Congress, at least that part of it not controlled by America’s domestic enemies the Democrats, is taking steps to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014—sponsored by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.)—seeks to slap U.S. sanctions on the organization’s political center in Egypt as well as scores of affiliates operating across America and Europe…

Sanctions would, of course, have dire consequences for that branch of the Brotherhood known as the Obama administration, an FTO if ever there was one: the head loony’s vacation fund might be frozen.

The Best Friend Hamas Ever Had

Pals

“Qatar is Hamas’s biggest and most important financier, a role it plays as well for ISIS, al Nusra, the Muslim Brotherhood and various jihadist groups in Libya.” – Caroline Glick

“When it comes to American relations with our Israeli allies and our Islamic-supremacist enemies, you can always rely on Obama to do the wrong thing.” – Andrew C. McCarthy

“I’ve got two years left in this presidency, I want to get a whole bunch of stuff done.” – Barack Obama

Obama ain’t fooling anyone; at least, not anyone who doesn’t want to be fooled — which is usually the eternally gullible American liberal, always ready to be fleeced by any glib left-wing illusionist whose only real talent is making other people’s coins and freedoms disappear.

But what the Obama administration, that cabal of pro-Muslim socialist conspirators unaccountably placed in power by an apparently suicidal American electorate, would really like to see vanish, other than world capitalism, is the State of Israel. Which is why they’ve spent the last six years scheming to depose any and all secular Middle-Eastern tyrants (as worthy of deposition as such self-aggrandizing thugs may have been) and funneling billions of dollars in cold cash and hot weaponry to equally if not more tyrannical and thuggish Islamists.

There’s a reason why America’s Mohammedans approve of Obama by 72%: they know a brother when they see one.

Champion Of The 1.6 Percenters

One Track Mind

“I think that gay marriage should be between a man and a woman.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Homofascism – “a way of organizing a society in which homosexualists impose their agenda with which no one is allowed to disagree or have any appeal to the contrary without being subjected to severe consequences of ridicule, slander, libel, fines, public demonstrations, distortions, denial of free speech rights, loss of employment, and having the word ‘hate’ attached to you in some form.”

According to a new survey by the Center For Disease Control, only 1.6% of Americans identify themselves as homosexual.  Which begs the question, why does the President of the United States spend his presumably valuable time pandering to a tiny segment of the public while generally ignoring the customs of the 98.4% of us who like our eggs, so to speak, sunny-side up?

Since we’re talking percentages, here’s another one to ponder: 71% of the people who voted for Obama now regret it.  The other 29% have been dead since the turn of the century.
