Obama Just Doesn’t Care What Americans Think, He is That Out of Touch … President Barack Obama Says That He & Team Obama Did Not Succeed in Effectively Selling His Policies

Barack Obama, the American people just don’t know the good things I have done for them …

In an interview this weekend with Bob Schieffer on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation,’ Barack Hussein Obama said that he took responsibility for the disastrous midterm election loses by Democrats last Tuesday and the “Buck stops with him”. Well kinda, there will be no confusing Obama with Harry S. Truman as a leader taking responsibility for his actions, policies and agenda. As reported at the NY Times Obama said, “that he and his White House team had not succeeded in effectively selling the benefits of his policies to the American people.” HUH? Then the out of touch Obama said, “It’s not enough just to build a better mousetrap, We’ve got to sell it.” WHAT? Barack Obama has yet to lead as president during his previous 6 years, all he has done is campaign and try to sell his snake oil. This fool actually believes his policies are good and the American people are just too stupid to realize their benefits, because he and Team Obama have not properly bull-shitted them. UNREAL. This president actually thinks his policies are good for Americans, even though all the signs show otherwise. As former Florida House Rep. Allen West  said back in 2012, “Barack Obama is serving America a crap sandwich with a smile on his face … But it’s still a crap sandwich.”

Just days after his party was routed in the midterm elections, President Obama said that he and his White House team had not succeeded in effectively selling the benefits of his policies to the American people, calling it a “failure of politics” that he must change in the final two years of his presidency.

“It’s not enough just to build a better mousetrap,” Mr. Obama said in an interview that was taped Friday at the White House and broadcast Sunday on the 60th anniversary of CBS’s “Face the Nation” program. “People don’t automatically come beating to your door. We’ve got to sell it. We’ve got to reach out to the other side and, where possible, persuade.”

Mr. Obama acknowledged bluntly that “we got beat” in the elections on Tuesday and said that the Democratic losses prompted him to have a “gut check” about what he needed to do differently. But as he has in the past, the president defended the merits of his administration’s policies, blaming the election results on a poor communications effort in the White House.

“There are times, there’s no doubt about it, where, you know I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we’re trying to do and why this is the right direction,” Mr. Obama said.

Discussion of the 2014 midterm “ass-whuppin” begins at 3:52.

CBS – Face the Nation Transcript: [SM editors notes in blue]

BOB SCHIEFFER: I want to get back to foreign policy but I also want to ask you about what happened on Tuesday.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: We got beaten.

BOB SCHIEFFER: Yeah. Harry Truman once famously said if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.  [Where is Bo these days?] And I thought of that when I heard the chief of staff of the Democratic leader of the Senate, Harry Reid say and this is his quote, “The President’s approval rating is basically forty percent. What else more is there to say?” He’s basically saying it was your fault. Do you feel it was your fault?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, look, another saying of Harry Truman’s was, the buck stops with me. With me, the buck stops right here at my desk. And so whenever, as the head of the party, it doesn’t do well, I’ve got to take responsibility for it. The message that I took from this election and we’ve seen this in a number of elections, successive elections, is people want to see this city work. [So the message Obama took is that people want to see DC to work, that is why they soundly rejected Democrats, the GOP gained more House seats, won what will be a net 9 US Senate seats in gaining control and governorships in states like Mass, Illinois and Delaware? So in order for Washington to work the people said we want GOP control and policies.]  And they feel as if it’s not working. The economy has improved significantly. [Really the economy has improved? A record number of Americans are on food stamps, the job participation rate is at an all-time low and Americans who had lost their well-paying full time jobs have replaced them with part time and ones paying much, much less. Sorry Barack, Americans know the economy is not better.]  There’s no doubt about it. We had a jobs report for October that showed that once again over two hundred thousand jobs created. [Tell some one now making $15 an hour when they previously made $30 that their new job is fantastic].  We’ve now created more than ten million. The unemployment rate has come down faster than we could have anticipated. Just to give you some perspective, Bob, we’ve created more jobs in the United States than every other advanced economy combined since I came into office. And so we’re making progress but people still feel like their wages haven’t gone up, their incomes haven’t gone up, still hard to save for retirement, still hard to send a kid to college. And then they see Washington gridlocked and they’re frustrated. And, you know, they know one person in Washington and that’s the President of the United States. So I’ve got to make this city work better for them. [No, you and your socialist policies need to get out of the way for the US economy to flourish.]

BOB SCHIEFFER: But is it what you thought it would be?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You know, here– here is one thing that I will say that campaigning and governance are two different things. I’ve ran two successful campaigns. [No, you rode to victory in 2008 on the myth that you were a different kind of politician and were aided by an all too willing MSM that refused to vet you. Then in 2012, you stole the election visa-vie the IRS attacking conservative non-profit groups. Then there are the numeous scandals like Benghazi-gate where the Obama administration purposely lied to the American people as to what happened prior to the 2012 presidential election].  And anybody who has seen me on the campaign trail can tell how much I love just being with the American people. And hearing what they care about and what– you know how passionate I am about trying to help them. When you start governing, there is a tendency sometimes for me to start thinking. As long as I get the policy right then that’s what should matter. And, you know, people have asked, you know, what you need to do differently going forward and I think you do that, you got to check after every election.

BOB SCHIEFFER: What do you need to do differently?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: And I think that one thing that I do need to constantly remind myself and my team are is it’s not enough just to build the better mousetrap. [What a fitting term, mousetraps kill things.] People don’t automatically come beating to your door. We’ve got to sell it, we’ve got to reach out to the other side and where possible persuade. And I think there are times, there’s no doubt about it where, you know, I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we are trying to do and why this is the right direction. So there– there is a failure of politics there that we have got– we got to improve on. [How long have they had to sell Obamacare, the Obama economy and his agenda? What do they need, another 20 years? They people do not need to be sold anything, they experience it every day.]

BOB SCHIEFFER: What criticisms of your administration do you think are valid?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, I just mentioned one. I think that what is also true is that, you know, no matter how frustrating it can sometimes be for any President to deal with an opposition that has, yeah, pretty stubborn, and where there are really strong differences, you just got to keep on trying. [Code for, I just following the teachings of Saul Alinsky and double down on my failed, hated policies].

The folks at ‘This is Spinal Tap’ weigh in on the Obama presidency … The review on Shark sandwich is pretty much the same as the one for the Obama agenda, and yes, they can say that.

Barack Obama Says on Al Sharpton Radio Show: 2014 Democrats “Are All Folks Who Vote With Me” And “Have Supported My Agenda”

Did Barack Obama just make “devastating” statements to Democrats on the Al Sharpton radio show, or is he trying to gin up his African-American base? Or is it all about the Narcissist in Chief’s “hurt feelings”? Democrats running in red states and in close contests have been trying their best to distance themselves from Obama, including refusing to say whetther they even voted for him. However, he just put himself right in the middle of their campaigns … “These are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in congress.”

But Obama made sure to stress that although Alison Lundergan Grimes, Bruce Braley, and even DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz have all insisted that the president is “not on the ballot,” all of them support his agenda and will vote with him.

“These are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in congress,” Obama said. “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me.”

Mediaite:

Describing the “tough map“ that Democrats face in this year’s midterms, Obama told Sharpton, “A lot of the states that are contested this time are states that I didn’t win. And so some of the candidates there — it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turnout.”

“The bottom line though is, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress,” Obama added, citing the minimum wage and fair pay as issues on which they all agree. “This isn’t about my feelings being hurt, these are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me,” the president said.

Obama White House Link to 2012 Cartagena, Colombia Prostitution Scandal

MORE FROM THE MOST TRANSPARANT WHITE HOUSE EVER: What a shock, The Obama White House knew … Let’s add one more scandal to the Obama presidency.

Courtesy of the WAPO, the White House told us prior to the 2012 election that there was no one involved with the WH advance team involved in the prostitution scandal in Colombia in 2012. we were told it was just Secret Service and military individuals involved. White House aides were given information at the time suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest in the hotel room of a presidential advance-team member. It gets even better, the lead investigator into the Secret Service prostitution scandal told Senate staffers that he was directed to delay the release of the report until after the 2012 election.

Jay the Carney states to media that there was no evidence of misconduct by White House advance team, hmm … really?

As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia, Obama administration officials repeatedly denied that anyone from the White House was involved.

The information that the Secret Service shared with the White House included hotel records and firsthand accounts — the same types of evidence the agency and military relied on to determine who in their ranks was involved.

The Secret Service shared its findings twice in the weeks after the scandal with top White House officials, including then-White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler. Each time, she and other presidential aides conducted an interview with the advance-team member and concluded that he had done nothing wrong.

Meanwhile, the new details also show that a separate set of investigators in the inspector general’s office of the Department of Homeland Security — tasked by a Senate committee with digging more deeply into misconduct on the trip — found additional evidence from records and eyewitnesses who had accompanied the team member in Colombia.

The lead investigator later told Senate staffers that he felt pressure from his superiors in the office of Charles K. Edwards, who was then the acting inspector general, to withhold evidence — and that, in the heat of an election year, decisions were being made with political considerations in mind.

“We were directed at the time .?.?. to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election,” David Nieland, the lead investigator on the Colombia case for the DHS inspector general’s office, told Senate staffers, according to three people with knowledge of his statement.

Nieland added that his superiors told him “to withhold and alter certain information in the report of investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.”

If President Barack Obama Has Already Checked Out of his Job … Can we Just Have Him Leave Early?

Does Barack Obama even care anymore?

The Daily Telegraph opines that President Barack Obama has already checked out of his job. Matt K Lewis, a senior contributor at The Daily Caller, writes that “The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing.” If it was not bad enough during Obama’s first term with his over-usage of greens and fairways as other more important issues were taking place, the One’s second term has been even worse. Rome is burning and Nero Obama is shamefully playing golf and going to fund raisers.If Obama does not care anymore and has checked out, as witnessed by his actions or lack of action … can he just do us all a favor and leave the White House early? I am sure many would not mind, including Democrats.

Obama_Golf_drudge

And based on his recent handling of situations much more serious than a possible post-presidential move to sunny California, it seems as if “No Drama Obama” is no longer even worried about keeping up appearances; he doesn’t care enough to fake it.

Consider this: In recent days, a) Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, apparently by Russian separatists in Ukraine, b) In the Gaza strip, the numbers killed continued to mount as Israelis and Palestinians exchange rocket fire, c) a huge influx of children fleeing Central American poverty and gang warfare swamped America’s southern border, creating a humanitarian crisis. And, oh yeah, d) Christians living in Mosul were given the choice to either convert to Islam or flee the area they have inhabited for nearly two thousand years.

You know what else has happened during this time? a) Obama played many rounds of golf, b) he attended numerous fund-raisers, c) he dined on barbecue in Texas and burgers in Delaware, and d) he almost appeared on the comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show in Hollywood.

I say “almost” because the White House finally relented. “We ultimately elected not to have the president do that interview over the course of this trip,” the White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, conceded. “And that is at least in part related to the challenges of doing a comedy show in the midst of some of these other more serious matters that the president’s dealing with in the international scene.”

Previously Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted Barack Obama for his apathy on crucial current events and told him, “It’s Time to Get Your ‘Big Boy Pants On’ & Stop Kidding Around.”

Also, Sean Hanity offered up a blistering  monologue telling Barack Obama, ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”

Bodies Rained Down from the Sky on Ukraine Village After Malaysia MH17 Plane Shot Down by a Ground to Air Missile … And Obama Went to Fundraisers

Reuters reports that following the ground to air missile attack that blew Malaysia flight MH17 from the sky, bodies of innocent men, women and children rained down on the Ukraine village to the horror of the villagers below. Bodies of the victims of Flight MH17 fell on to people’s yards, on their homes and broke through their roofs. The terrible reality was that the sky was raining dead bodies, body parts and pieces of the missile targeted plane. This is what Barack Obama described the situation as, ‘Looks like it may be a tragedy’ just before he went off to two fundraiser in NYC following this terror attack and act of war against a civilian airplane. How does Obama justify fundraising and jokes to the images below in the truly disturbing video?

Even yesterday, bodies and debris scattered the countryside as the smell of death and jet fuel was in the air.

Warning: Extremely graphic

VIDEO – Vice News

First came the loud explosion that made buildings rattle: then it started raining bodies.

One of the corpses fell through the rickety roof of Irina Tipunova’s house in this sleepy village, just after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 exploded high over eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists are fighting government forces.

“There was a howling noise and everything started to rattle. Then objects started falling out of the sky,” the 65-year-old pensioner said in front of her grey-brick home.

“And then I heard a roar and she landed in the kitchen, the roof was broken,” she said, showing the gaping hole made by the body when it came through the ceiling of the kitchen in an extension to the house.

The dead woman’s naked body was still lying inside the house, next to a bed.

Another local resident in her 20s who refused to give her name said she ran outside after hearing the plane explode.

“I opened the door and I saw people falling. One fell in my vegetable patch,” she said.

Sean Hannity Blasts President Barack Obama in Blistering Monologue … ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”

BARACK OBAMA, ITS TIME TO LEAD, NOT DIVIDE …

Last night Sean Hannity blasted Barack Obama in a blistering monologue begging, asking and demanding that this president ‘WAKE UP” and get engaged in the turmoil in both domestic and foreign policy. Much of which Obama has no one to blame but himself. Although he will try and pass the buck. It is becoming evident that Obama is the “Bystander” in Chief and refuses to step up to the plate and lead. But instead Obama attends fundraisers, plays golf and goes on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard.

Hannity stated that our world is in an alarming state of emergency, between Israel’s ground war into Gaza to protect itself from Hamas, Malaysia flight ML17 blown out of the sky in an unspeakable act killing innocent men, women and children, ISIS on the rise, Al-Qaeda on the move, the Middle East on fire, Russia and Putin flexing its muscles, Obama administration scandals like IRS-gate and Benghazi-gate, and a US domestic policy of out of control national debt and a discouraged work force. Let us not forget the crisis we have on our Southern border caused by Obama’s lack of protecting or borders. Then there is that Obamacare thing.

Hannity said, “It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities. So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.” Hannity went on to say, “Mr. President for you to stand up. It is time for you to lead. It’s time to skip for once your lavish million dollar Marha’s Vineyard vacation. It’s time for you to put down those golf clubs. I thing 180 rounds of gold is quite enough. It is time for you to lead by example. [...] You need to spend more time in The Oval Office. You need to be in the Situation Room. You may be surprised to learn what has actually happened in the six years since you have become the leader of the free world.”

The Blaze:

“It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities,” Hannity said. “So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.”

Hannity then skewered the president over his handling of domestic matters.

“Mr. President, why don’t you consider the events of these past 24 hours to be a very, very costly and deadly wake up call,” Hannity said. “And while all this was happening yesterday, you spent 40 seconds dealing with the killing of nearly 300 innocent people and for your secretary of state to tell Israel to restrain itself again and again. It’s time for a wakeup call.

UNBELIEVABLE … After 23 Americans Are Killed in Malaysia Flight MH17 Missile Terrorist Attack, Barack Obama Goes Fundraising in NYC … John McCain Says Obama Is AWOL on Ukraine

THERE IS A REASON WHY OBAMA IS CALLED THE “CAMPAIGNER” IN CHIEF …

Good grief, what is wrong with this president, has he no shame? After 23 Americans are believed to have been killed when Malaysia Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was shot down by a surface to air missile by Russian separatists over Ukraine airspace, Barack Obama attended two fundraisers in New York City. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! How detached could one individual possibly be when Americans civilians are killed by an act of war/terrorism and a sitting president just goes about his merry way and attends a fundraiser? Sorry, but there is something seriously wrong with Obama that anyone would think that it was okay to do so. All Americans should be sickened by his actions.

TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE PICS OF THE DEATH AND CARNAGE AND COMPARE THAT TO OBAMA GOING OFF TO FUNDRAISERS AS IF NOTHING HAPPENED. SICK, JUST SICK!!!

Sen. John McCain appeared on Hannity last night and said,  “I don’t understand this president. The crisis on the border. He did the fundraisers, the fundraisers in New York while they’re major conflicts, not to mention the loss of American lives. It was reported there were Americans on the airplane. I do not understand it … This is just what we used to call in the military A-W-O-L.”

John McCain: Obama Is AWOL on Ukraine

Republicans are assailing President Obama’s decision to attend two fundraisers in New York City Thursday night after 295 people perished when a Malaysian passenger jet crashed in Ukraine after an apparent rocket attack and Israel launched a ground war in Gaza the same day.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus took to Twitter to launch a broadside against Obama for going through with the fundraisers benefiting House and Senate Democrats.

“With all that is going on, the last thing the President should be doing is fundraising right now. Now is a time for leadership,” Priebus tweeted.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was far harsher in his assessment.

“I don’t understand this president … this is what we used to call in the military A-W-O-L,” McCain told Fox News Thursday night. “… There’s a direct lost of American lives here and the president goes to a fundraiser? Help me out.”

Twenty-three Americans are believed to have died in the crash, although U.S. authorities have yet to confirm those numbers.

Barack Obama is no leader. If he had any respect for the United States of America, he would just step down from office for the sake of America. But that will never happen, because Obama is a “community agitator” and his every action is meant to divide and destroy the America that we knew. Sorry, but Obama would have gone fund raising on 9-12-2001.

ABC News/WAPO Poll Gives Barack Obama Poor Grade on Handling Crisis of Illegals Coming into the United States Over Mexican Border

Imagine that, President Barack Obama gets low marks on yet another important key issue.

A recent ABC News/WAPO poll gives Obama extremely poor marks on dealing with illegals crossing the US-Mexican border as only 33% approve of his handling of the situation while 58% of all respondents disapprove and 60% of registered voters. How could anyone agree with Obama’s handling of this when he thought going to a fundraiser in Texas was more important than seeing the crisis for himself, first hand?

It’s one of the hottest national debates this summer: What to do about the influx of unaccompanied and undocumented children from Central America who are crossing from Mexico into the U.S.

A new national poll indicates that a majority of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s short term remedy, but most give the President and his GOP critics in Congress a thumbs down on how they’re handling the crisis along the country’s southern border.

Rep. Gutierrez (D-IL) Shames Barack Obama For Not Visiting the Texas-Mexico Border … Is Like Not Visiting Sick Relative While Vacationing Nearby

Or playing golf for that matter … or pool

OUCH, even Democrats are calling out Barack Obama for the absurdity of the president going to Texas for fundraisers and not visiting the humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexican border that he created. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) shamed Obama on CNN’s Crossfire and compared the president not visiting the Texas border, while fund raising in Texas  to ignoring a sick relative in the hospital while vacationing nearby.

“I wish the President of the United States were going down and visiting the children and visiting the site tonight. I kind of think of, you know, if I were on vacation in Puerto Rico and my wife’s aunt was in the hospital and I didn’t go see her, I think her family would probably get together and probably say ‘You made a poor choice.’ It is important that he do that.”

Barack Obama, Too Busy to go to the US-Mexico border in Texas, but can play pool and yuck it up

Liz Cheney Says, There Is No Question That Barack Obama Is a Dangerous President

Barack Obama, a foreign policy failure …

Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz Cheney appeared on ‘The Kelly Files’ to discuss their recent editorial in the Wall Street Journal.  Megyn Kelly asked, “do you think that President Obama is dangerous?” Liz Cheney responded, “Yes, there is no question” Obama is a dangerous president when you look at the past six years.

Megyn Kelly: Do you think that President Obama is dangerous?

Liz Cheney: Yes… I think there is no question. I think he is unique in terms of a president who is sitting in the Oval Office who has made very clear his desire is to weaken the nation. And, whether you say it is his intent, whether you say it’s naivete you can now look at the result of the policy the last six and a half years and you got the black-clad terrorists of ISIS now taking over city after city after city in Iraq.

VIDEO Hat Tip – The gateway Pundit

Wall Street Journal Editorial by Dick and Liz Cheney – ‘The Collapsing Obama Doctrine’:

As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama’s past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. “If a J.V. team puts on Lakers’ uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant” (January 2014). “[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated” (August 2013). “So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding” (September 2011)

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America’s enemies are not “decimated.” They are emboldened and on the march.

The fall of the Iraqi cities of Fallujah, Tikrit, Mosul and Tel Afar, and the establishment of terrorist safe havens across a large swath of the Arab world, present a strategic threat to the security of the United States. Mr. Obama’s actions—before and after ISIS’s recent advances in Iraq—have the effect of increasing that threat.
