The Narcissist in Chief Strikes Again … Barack Obama Honors Himself on 58th Anniversary of Rosa Parks Civil Disobedience Bus Arrest
This is just truly disturbing, this man has no shame …
On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake’s order that she give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled and was arrested. Her arrest for civil disobedience for ignoring the Alabama law requiring black people to relinquish seats to white people when the bus was full sparked a 381-day boycott of the Montgomery bus system. It also gave rise to the 1596 Supreme Court decision banning segregation on public transportation. Rosa Parks was a woman of great courage, charter, strength, perseverance and principles. On this day we remember her for standing up, or we should say sitting down, and saying no to what she knew was wrong.
Parks’ act of defiance and the Montgomery Bus Boycott became important symbols of the modern Civil Rights Movement. She became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation. She organized and collaborated with civil rights leaders, including Edgar Nixon, president of the local chapter of the NAACP; and Martin Luther King, Jr., a new minister in town who gained national prominence in the civil rights movement.
At the time, Parks was secretary of the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP. She had recently attended the Highlander Folk School, a Tennessee center for training activists for workers’ rights and racial equality. She acted as a private citizen “tired of giving in”. Although widely honored in later years, she also suffered for her act; she was fired from her job as a seamstress in a local department store.
Today, President Barack Obama honored Rosa Parks on the 58th anniversary of her civil disobedience that would change America forever. Well kind of. It would appear that President Barack Obama decided to honor this day by honoring himself. What a shock that Obama would make it about him. Really, has this man no shame? To remember and honor Rosa Parks on the the historic day what did Barack Obama do … why tweet a picture of himself of course.
Just another head shaking moment from this president. What is this guy, a one trick pony? He used the same pic last year to agitate and compare himself to her as well. Way to go out of your way and do something different to honor an American hero.
Some responses to Obama’s look at me, it is all about me remembrance. Oh, did I mention the world revolves around me, me, me, Barack Obama? The audacity of this man is repulsive. A note to Barack Obama, you would never know what it means to sacrifice like Rosa Parks and do something like she did that was so selfless and for others, not yourself. Hell, you can’t even sacrifice not golfing to do the right thing.
He Just Doesn’t Care … Barack Obama Stays Overnight in Florida to Play Golf as Millions of Americans Lose Their Insurance Because of Obamacare
FROM THE GOLFER IN CHIEF: LET THEM EAT THEIR CANCELED INSURANCE POLICIES …
Talk about a detached, cold fish president. As millions of Americans lose their insurance thanks to Obamacare, President Barack Obama goes golfing yet again. How is it possible some one could be so uncaring, so devoid of compassion and so clueless as while millions of Americans get insurance cancellation notices, after Obama had promised that if they liked their healthcare plan they could keep it, he goes golfing. The Obamacare website Healthcare.gov is a complete disastrous joke, the Obamacare policies are a lie and individuals are in turmoil, yet this rodeo clown goes golfing. Obama provided a faux-apology Thursday night to the American people who have been affected by his lies, yet Obama still thinks as Americans suffer due to his actions, he just goes golfing. But hey, he is really sorry America.
Sorry, but there is something seriously not right with an individual who acts like nothing is wrong, when nothing is going right.
Shhh, don’t tell anyone I really could give a hoot about the middle class, or Americans in general
President Obama appears to have remained overnight in Miami – incurring extra costs for taxpayers – just to play golf in the Florida sunshine.
Obama headed out this morning to the exquisite Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale, a trip that required a half hour motorcade from his hotel his Miami. And it will be well worth the trip, at least for him. According to the course website:
As the Washington Times points out this is the 150th round of golf for Obama in 5 years.
Barack Obama, the Narcissist in Chief Says Says “I’ve Been Burned” By Obamacare Website … Dude, You are Not the Victim, the American People Are (Update: Obama Does Not Think He Lied)
What else should we expect from Barack Obama, the Narcissist in Chief ? For Obama its all about him, as he uses the words like “I” and “me”. This president just can’t help himself. Obama was supposed to be making an apology to “We the People” for the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare, for millions for people losing their insurance, for the misrepresentation and lies that Obama spewed regarding his signature piece of legislation, but instead he made himself the victim and then tried to catch himself.
During Barack Obama’s interview with NBC Political Director Chuck Todd Thursday night NBC’s Nightly News, President Obama said that “I’ve been burned by a website.” I? Excuse me Mr. President, you have been burned by the Healthcare.gov, really? This is exactly why no one considers Obama a leader and why thy refer to him as leading from behind. How does it even cross his mind as the first thing to say that he has been burned?
BARACK OBAMA: I am deeply frustrated about how this website has not worked over the first couple of weeks. And, I take responsibility of that. My team takes responsibility of that. And we are working every single day, 24/7, to improve it. And it’s better now than it was last week. It’s certainly a lot better than it was on October 1st. Having said that, given that I’ve been burned already with a website–well, more importantly the American people have been burned by a website that’s been dysfunctional, what we’ve also been doing is creating a whole other set of tracks, making sure that people can apply by phone effectively, making sure people can apply in person effectively.
Who cares about the stupid website that wen all is said and done will probably cost tax payers $1 billion, Americans are pissed that you knowingly lied to them about being able to keep their doctor if they liked their doctor, being able to keep their health insurance if they liked their health care coverage and lowering costs. Barack Obama has a huge credibility problem and it will most likely sink his presidency and Democrats.
UPDATE I: NBC Political Director Chuck Todd Interviewed by Hugh Hewitt … Todd said, “You know, he does not believe he lied on this, and that’s the sense I get.”
So the serial liar thinks that he did not lie. Some are using the term “pathological” liar to describe Obama, but I have to disagree. A pathological liar is defined as an individual who frequent and repeated lies for which no apparent psychological motive or external benefit can be discerned. What Barack Obama does is perform regular lies, ones that are goal-directed and are told to obtain external benefit. Obama is not lying, according to Obama, he is just following the teachings of Saul Alinsky of saying one thing and doing another. These lies were purposeful and with a designed outcome.
You know, he does not believe he lied on this, and that’s the sense I get. I mean, I think that that’s, he’s taken issue with that before with folks off the record, and I got it’s a sensitive issue, felt like he did not sit there and say he intentionally lied. He said that he wanted to, he thought he was going to be able to keep this promise. I thought what was revealing in that answer, when I asked him that direct question about this, was this a political lie that you started to believe it, was he talked about well, you know, it turns out we had trouble in crafting the law.
However, the American people know he lied, those who have lost their instance and cannot keep their doctors. Many of which are Democrats. So the real question is, what do we do with a president who lies and its not about sex? Answer … IMPEACH!!!
Barack Obama and Biden Go Golfing after Syria Presser … This is Suppsed to Show that Syria Poses a Clear & Immediate Threat to America?
Really, Barack Obama goes on TV and has a presser from the Rose Garden of the White House telling us how imperative it is to attack Syria for gassing their people and then he goes play golf with Biden?
How can any one take what Obama says seriously, if he does not? What kind of a person tries to play on people’s emotions to drag them into a Middle East Civil Wat conflict by talking about children being gassed to death, then is so flip and plays golf? Sorry folks, this dude has issues. There is something not right with some one who operates like this. It is all like his job as President is just a joke to him and gets in the way of his golf game and vacations. I guess this is what a “community agitator” does, stir the pot and then just go about like business as usual.It would appear Legal Insurrection has the same issue.
It’s NOT the Golf itself, but the ability of Obama to compartmentalize.
One moment he’s giving a statement to the world about what he describes as a heinous breach of longstanding international norms the gravity of which has brought him to the decision to launch military action with almost no allied support, subject only to timing (and not necessarily even subject to congressional approval).
Within an hour or so he’s on the links.
Because after all, a poor economy, record food stamp participation, high unemployment, and bringing the US into a military action can’t stop Obama from playing his rounds of golf. Hey Obama, it’s 3 am and you are failing miserably and making the US look like a laughing stock.
As the Politico reported, Obama’s motorcade left the White House at 2:30 p.m., about 30 minutes after completing his statement. I wonder if he showed up for his tee time, 35 minutes late?
Obama goes golfing after deciding on Syria military strike … Don’t let a crisis you are peddling to the American people as in our national interest get in the way of playing golf.
President Obama played golf on Saturday following his major announcement that he had decided the United States should take military action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for using chemical weapons on civilians during that country’s civil war.
The president and Vice President Biden left for the course within minutes of his Rose Garden speech in which he asked Congress to first approve such action.
When Comedy Meets Reality: Jay Leno Rips Barack Obama as He Waits in Green Room … “How About Solving the Problems That Brought Our Country to a Halt”
The Comedian in Chief … the sad reality is, that the joke is really on all of us.
They used to say that Obama was not good for late night comedy shows because he was not funny. Looks like the times are a changing as Jay Leno makes it a nightly occurrence to make fun of and mock President Barack Obama. Leno is a master of the obvious when it comes to humor and comedy … in order for something to be really funny, there has got to be truth involved. Jay Leno did not even hold back in his monologue even when Obama was making an appearance last night on ‘The Tonight Show’ … “How About Solving the Problems That Brought Our Country to a Halt”
“President Obama has sent John McCain to Cairo to help solve the political problems that brought the Egyptian government to a halt. I got an idea. How about solving the problems that brought our country to a halt.”
This was just a case of more media bias as Barack Obama was provided a softball interview that basically was an infomercial.
We will not even go into the fact right now that what the hell was Obama doing on a comedy show discussing the problems of the economy, Obamacare and terror in the Middle East? Really, this is the venue that this president thinks is appropriate? It was not like Leno was going to ask a tough follow up question.
The Divider & Narcissist in Chief Barack Obama … Trayvon Martin Could Have Been Me (VIDEO & Transcript) … Obama Fans the Flames of Racism
THE EPIC FAILURE KNOWN AS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA: The Race Baiter in Chief was at it again yesterday as he threw more fuel on the fire in the wake of the George Zimmerman murder trial “not guilty” verdict.
Barack Obama, the community agitator is at it again. Because in the end, it’s all about Barack Obama and if you are white, you are a racist. Take a good watch and listen to President Barack Obama’s comments from the VIDEO below. Obama basically called the jury of six woman in the George Zimmerman murder trial racists. UNBELIEVABLE. Because race relations are not bad enough in the United States under this presidency and following the Trayvon Martin shooting death as race baiter and race hustlers have made matters worse playing the race card at every opportune moment.
So why would we not think that Barack Obama, the first black president, the individual who was supposed to be a bridge between the races better … make things worse. This narcissist had to once again make it about Obama. Instead of Obama saying if he had a son, he would have looked like Trayvon Martin, this time Obama had to say … “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.” How is it that a man is supposed to lead, diffuse the issues and be a president to all, instead just takes the easy way out and identifies with only one segment of society? Sorry, but Obama is a poor excuse of a president and a poor excuse of a human being. All he can do is attack his own racism and past to Trayvon Martin like a leach. Instead of understanding that some one has a right to protect themselves and self-defense, Obama continues to pile on and pander to the black community to make matters worse between races. Maybe because if they do, We the People will be too busy being at each others throats to pay attention to his epic failure of a presidency? Oh, and by the way Mr. President, George Zimmerman WAS NOT WHITE!!!
Wow, as opined by the Gateway Pundit, if you lock your doors and protect your property, you are a racist. And according to Barack Obama if you were on the jury and found George Zimmerman “not guilty,” you must be racist as well. Instead if diffusing the fire and telling black America that, yes there is still racism in the United States, however, the case of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was not it, Barack Obama basically discounted the entire criminal case against Zimmerman and the fact that neither the FBI, the Florida prosecutors or Eric Holder and the DOJ can find no evidence that George Zimmerman was a racist, ever acted like a racists or the death of Trayvon Martin was racially motivated. As a matter of fact, even the prosecution in their closing arguments said it wasn’t about race.
Remarks by the President on Trayvon Martin (Full text).
First of all, I want to make sure that, once again, I send my thoughts and prayers, as well as Michelle’s, to the family of Trayvon Martin, and to remark on the incredible grace and dignity with which they’ve dealt with the entire situation. I can only imagine what they’re going through, and it’s remarkable how they’ve handled it.
The second thing I want to say is to reiterate what I said on Sunday, which is there’s going to be a lot of arguments about the legal issues in the case — I’ll let all the legal analysts and talking heads address those issues. The judge conducted the trial in a professional manner. The prosecution and the defense made their arguments. The juries were properly instructed that in a case such as this reasonable doubt was relevant, and they rendered a verdict. And once the jury has spoken, that’s how our system works. But I did want to just talk a little bit about context and how people have responded to it and how people are feeling.
You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago. And when you think about why, in the African American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.
There are very few African American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes me. There are very few African American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me — at least before I was a senator. There are very few African Americans who haven’t had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off. That happens often.
And I don’t want to exaggerate this, but those sets of experiences inform how the African American community interprets what happened one night in Florida. And it’s inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear. The African American community is also knowledgeable that there is a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws — everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws. And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case.
This must have been the Obama that related to Trayvon?
But why would we thing that Barack Obama would ever do the right thing? Instead of bringing people together, he brings up past racism, and singles out a group of people to blame. His speech did not make things better, it made matters worse. We can all remember how Obama dealt with the situation in Cambridge, MA when white police officers arrested a black professor. Without knowing any of the facts, Obama automatically deemed it racists and said the cops acted stupidly (VIDEO). This clown joked around to the press corps and basically called the police racists. Not much has changed with this president.
Reuters’ David Rohde on Obama Administration : “Terrible Optics” of President Barack Obama Golfing and Sec. of State John Kerry Yachting after Egypt Over-Throws Morsi
So somebody in the MSM finally decided to say it … What the hell is Obama thinking?
David Rohde of Reuters criticized the Obama Administration on CBS’ Face the Nation this weekend. Rohde stated that the optics were terrible following what was supposed to be a strong statement by Barack Obama regarding the situation in Egypt. So some one in the media is finally questions Obama’s optics … “Terrible Optics” of Obama Golfing and Kerry Yachting as Egypt burns.
” … you have a bit now in Egypt where the president has a tough statement and then I don’t know how this happened, but it was terrible optics. The next day the President goes golfing, Secretary Kerry’s out on his yacht. What does that say to young people in Egypt, across the Middle East–whether they’re part of the debate–about America’s interest in the region?
Just curious, where has Reuters’ David Rohde been for the past 4+ years with regards to the “terrible optics” of Obama golfing or vacationing as record number of Americans are on food stamps, continued 7.6%+ unemployment, Americans are forced into part-time work rather than full time due to Obamacare and Americans losing their homes? How come no one has questioned those optics? Face it … Egypt and the Middle East is just learning what America has had to deal with, this president is apathetic and just does not care. Barack Obama has gone golfing 130 times since in office. Where was the MSM questioning those rounds of golf? Did theu just happen to missing those optics?
This should be all Republicans need to know to never, and I mean NEVER nominate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as GOP presidential candidate.
WHAT A SHOCK. As reported by CNS News, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker among Democratic respondents. Who could have seen that one coming? You mean RINO Chris Christie, Barack Obama’s best friend and the individual who helped Obama win reelection with his over the top embrace of Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy? Why wouldn’t Democrats see Christie as the most favorable Republican seeing that he allowed himself to be the useful pawn and photo-op for Obama? As stated at Michelle Malkin, Hillary Clinton’s greatest threat for the Democrat nomination for president might just be Chris Christie.
Obama – Christie Bromance … They are not a political odd couple, they are the same person … Obama and Christie are all about Obama and Christie
According to a newly released Gallup poll, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the least-favored–among Democratic respondents. The poll sought to measure the favorable/unfavorable sentiments toward five Republicans Gallup believes may run for president in 2016. Conducted June 1-4. the survey asked: [P]lease say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of these people–or if you have never heard of them.” It then listed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
Chris Christie most beloved Republican by Democrats, what is John McCain going to say?
White House Defends Barack Obama’s African Boondoggle … Obama’s $100M Africa trip ‘great bang for our buck’
White House defends Obama’s $100 million trip to Africa as a ‘great bang for our buck’. Obama was also supposed to be the smartest president ever and care about the middle class as well. As stated at Michelle Malkin, wasn’t these the same people who said that investments into Solyndra (VIDEO) and other green energy companies were the same? How did that “bang for our buck” work out for America? Oh, that’s right, they are bankrupt. Maybe the comment that should be emphasized is when Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said, ”the White House doesn’t determine the cost of security.” Actually, Obama nor Michelle Obama care what it cost the tax payers is more accurate. Just curious, what part about the African safari was a “bang for our buck”? Even though it has since been canceled because the WAPO actually questioned and criticized the event, the fact of the matter is it was initially planned. The occupants of the White House not only don’t care about the cost of the security, they care little about any tab they make the struggling tax payers pay. America, its not just the IRS who has been pissing our money away, you can start by auditing 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to see where our money has gone.
President Obama’s $100 million trip to African offers “great bang for our buck,” the White House said Friday.
Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes defended the cost of Obama’s upcoming trip to South Africa, Senegal and Tanzania, which could cost taxpayers as much as $100 million.
He said the White House doesn’t determine the cost of security and argued traveling to the often overlooked region would help the U.S.
“Frankly, there will be a great bang for our buck for being in Africa, because when you travel to regions like Africa that don’t get a lot of presidential attention, you can have very long-standing and long-running impact from the visit,” Rhodes said.
WHAT A JOKE, Americans are suffering and Barack, Michelle and the kids in tow are off the Africa at a $100 million price tag to “We the People” and we get the BS in return that the trip is a great bang for our buck. Who, but a community agitator spends $100 million at a time when so many Americans are struggling? Obama wants people to be divisive and say things about him to be able to say, see the Right is unhinged. When the reality is, this slacker, scandal plagued president will do anything to take the people’s eye off the multitude of scandals going in in his administration. This president has claimed that he was for the middle class and the poor and demonized the rich 1 prevent. WAKE UP AMERICA … THE OBAMA’S ARE THE 1%!!!
SACRIFICE: Obama & First Family Trip to Africa Will Cost U.S. Taxpayers Between $60 and $100 Million
Title this one, Sequester, what sequester? Or, It’s Good to be King. Or, You Can Go Home Again ;-)
As reported at the Washington Post, President Barack Obama and his families trip to Africa will be one of the most expensive trips ever and cost the American tax payers between $60 and $100 million. That is correct. As millions of Americans are unemployed, under-employed, and struggle to get by on a day to day basis. This takes place as a record number of Americans are on food stamps and disability. This occurs as so-called sequestration has caused government departments to cut back and furlough workers. Barack Obama has said in the past that every one has to have skin in the game and must sacrifice? That is everyone but him. As Weasel Zippers states, “Just as long as the King and Queen of America enjoy themselves.” This man truly is a community agitator. Who does this at a time that the United States finds itself in record debt?
So let’s understand this, fighter jets will fly in shifts, giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace, a Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of an emergency but yet Americans were left to die in Benghazi without any military help within an 8 hour range? Really? Furthermore, we are in the midst of questioning the IRS for their lavish and over the top wasteful spending, yet Obama’s jaunt to Africa gets the rubber stamp of approval? The LEFT will be quick to say, well Bush did it. Is that really a defense? I thought Obama wasn’t W? We realize that other presidents have gone on expensive trips as well, but this president is not supposed to be like others. Obama says he cares about the poor and the middle class. Obama claims that he identifies with the common man and plays class warfare. However, this imperial, do as I say, not as I do, let them eat cake president just snubs his nose at the American people and does any damn thing he wants at the expense of ‘We the People”. What a disgrace.
Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of an emergency.
Military cargo planes will airlift in 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bulletproof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay. Fighter jets will fly in shifts, giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace, so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close.
The elaborate security provisions — which will cost the government tens of millions of dollars — are outlined in a confidential internal planning document obtained by The Washington Post. While the preparations appear to be in line with similar travels in the past, the document offers an unusual glimpse into the colossal efforts to protect the U.S. commander in chief on trips abroad.
Obama’s trip could cost the federal government $60 million to $100 million based on the costs of similar African trips in recent years, according to one person familiar with the journey, who was not authorized to speak for attribution. The Secret Service planning document, which was provided to The Post by a person who is concerned about the amount of resources necessary for the trip, does not specify costs.
The Weekly Standard reports that after the WAPO questioned the costs of a planned family safari, the White House nixed the plan. So does that mean if we question the entire trip, they will cancel this ridiculous, over-priced boondoggle as well?
