Politico Reports Washington, DC Has Turned on Barack Obama … Rats Fleeing the S.S Obama … Obama Knows Nothing
Is it true, has DC turned on Barack Obama … Can You Say Watergate II? Are the rats jumping off the SS. Obama?
With the Obama administration facing three scandals simultaneously, Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and AP-gate, the good ship Democrat S.S. Obama is looking more like the RMS Titanic these days. Barack Obama is beginning to make Richard Nixon look like a choir boy. But what did everyone expect, Obama’s “Chicago-style” politics has been taking place for years. It is only now that the MSM is being forced to cover it and Democrats are forced to acknowledge it. Democrats are fleeing the ship and the liberal MSM seems not far behind. So is as the Politico asks, has DC turned on Obama? I am not sure if I buy some of the Politico premise that the “establishment” Democrats and the MSM did not like Obama. Sorry, they have bent over backwards for this man and shoved legislation like Obamacare down the throats of Americans. The MSM has carried the water for this president and had they done their job, as they are being forced to now, Barack Obama may never have been elected in 2008 and definitely not in 2012. Democrats are fleeing Obama because “The One” is a lame duck, second term president with no more elections. However, Democrats who want to stay in power see Obama and his far too many scandals as an anchor. The MSM, after all the propaganda that they have spewed on to “We the People,” the AP scandal has forced them into a “come to Jesus” moment. Suddenly, the folks that made Obama have been slighted, more than normal by this administration. The MSM has suddenly realized that they have been defending Richard Milhous Nixon.
The one thing that rings most true in all of this is that Conservative and Tea Party folks have been vindicated in their complaints about President Barack Obama and his administration. The Left, Democrats and the MSM can no longer say their accusations are unwarranted and that they are just acting with partisan “sour grapes”. They were targeted and it is a fact … “NOT IF”. But suddenly Obama seems to have amnesia and has become Sgt. Schultz as he “knows nothing” of any of the scandals.
The town is turning on President Obama — and this is very bad news for this White House.
Republicans have waited five years for the moment to put the screws to Obama — and they have one-third of all congressional committees on the case now. Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.
Buy-in from all three D.C. stakeholders is an essential ingredient for a good old-fashioned Washington pile-on — so get ready for bad stories and public scolding to pile up.
Vernon Jordan, a close adviser to President Bill Clinton through his darkest days, told us: “It’s never all right if you’re the president. There is no smooth sailing. So now he has the turbulence, and this is the ultimate test of his leadership.” Jordan says Obama needs to do something dramatic on the IRS, and quick: “He needs to fire somebody. He needs action, not conversation.”
Obama’s aloof mien and holier-than-thou rhetoric have left him with little reservoir of good will, even among Democrats. And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be.
With Democrats and the MSM turning on Obama it should make for a good reality TV … ‘When Libs attack One Another.’ Gone is defending Obama and his agenda at all cost as it might just cost Democrat House and Senate politicians their political career. The 2014 and 2016 elections are not that far off and self-preservation is the name of the game in DC. To make matters worse for Democrats, the front-runner Hillary Clinton does not have clean hands either.
UPDATE I: More from Instapundit on President Barack Obama knowing nothing and doing his best imitation of ‘Hogan’s Hero’s’ Sgt. Schultz … As it turns out, that is exactly what Richard Nixon said as well. So what is worse, a president with three scandals he is complicit with, or a president that has no control of his administration and is completely over his head? Both are damning to America.
Bad Day for Obama & Hillary Clinton: MSNBC Guest from the Daily Beast Columnist Michael Tomasky Says … Invoked “That Word That Starts With ‘I’” … Benghazi Scandal Makes White House “Look Terrible,” Possibly An “Impeachment Issue”
You know its bad for Barack Obama when the LIBS at
MSNBS MSLSD MSNBC start bringing up “Impeachment” as a result of their Benghazi cover-up and Benghazigate.
Even the LEFT is at a loss for words and defense when it comes to the way the Obama White House has handled Benghazi before, during and after the Benghazi consulate attacks. The news that Benghazi talking points had been edited 12 times and scrubbed of all references of terrorism have left the LEFT in a quandary. Just when you thought you had seen it all, even the ultra-liberal MSNBC folks appear to be using the “I” word when it comes to President Barack Obama and “impeachment” over the White House’s handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi terror attacks that left four Americans dead, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens. Playing politics games to win the 2012 presidential election, could come back to bite Obama. MSNBC, that has made a living off of defending, deflecting and just not covering Barack Obama’s disastrous presidency, both foreign and domestic, has now been forced to question the Obama presidency and even use such descriptive words as impeachment and compare his handling of Benghazi to ‘Watergate”. As Maggie’s Farm states, this is beginning to look much worse than “Watergate”. In fact, it is. No US ambassadors died during Watergate. Actually, no one died during Watergate, only political careers.
Unlike Watergate, an unremarkable political dirty trick with a dumb and unnecessary White House cover-up (if a handful of people had been fired it would have been a big nothing), in this case American public servants died seemingly because of State Dept and possibly White House incompetence or indifference, and both may have been complicit in an attempted cover-up a few weeks before a national election. Possibly the CIA too. People have been intimidated about speaking out, but maybe no longer.
It is not joust Barack Obama who is in trouble, but so is former Secretary of State and 2016 Democrat presidential nominee wannbe Hillary Clinton. She comes across looking terrible, possibly even worse than Obama. As Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson said, “I think, for Clinton, it looks Clintonian.” Yes she does. Hillary looks like all the worst parts of the Bill Clinton years, something that will not be lost by the GOP or Democrat primary challengers in 2016. The politicization of talking points when four Americans died is beyond disgustingly sick. Before, during and after, Clinton’s State Department failed miserably and looked to cover up … is that what the US needs as a president in 2016?
“This is quite the window into what is usually the hush-hush process about how to deal with these types of attacks and the spin that irrevocably comes afterwards,” NBC reporter Luke Russert opined.
“This is not good for the White House right now,” Russert said to BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith. “Does it stick?”
“Well, sure,” Smith replied. “They look terrible.”
Smith said that the emails indicate that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have been directly involved in the process of “scrubbing” references to Islamic terrorism from her department’s talking points.
“Does this become then an election politics thing?” Russert asked. He said that the Republican Party has been trying to link Clinton to the Benghazi scandal for some time.
The Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky said it does. He invoked “that word that starts with ‘I’” to describe the potentially significant political fallout that could result from the Benghazi scandal.
“It becomes a potentially impeachment issue as long as the Republicans are in control of the House,” Tomasky added.
“I think, for Clinton, it looks Clintonian,” submitted Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson. “It also, I think, reminds us that there is only one person that the far right-wing hates more than Obama, and that’s Hillary Clinton.”
Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry Reid (NV-D) to Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R): “My Friend from Texas is Like a Schoolyard Bully” … Democratic Strategist James Carville Called Cruz Talented & Fearless
Talk about the pot calling the kettle
black a bully …
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry said of Senator Ted Cruz, “My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully.” Wow, really? Obviously Harry Reid is having a case of selective amnesia because as Hot Air opines, Harry Reid has never thrown a political punch below the belt in the course of his career. NEVER EVER. If Reid thinks that Cruz is a school yard bully for his actions, what would one call Reid when he was desperately buying and threatening Senators to vote for Obamacare ?
Senator Ted Cruz responds to those who would try and bully him … Some Say I Lack Civility And Have ‘Insulted Me While Doing So’
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called freshman GOP Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) a “schoolyard bully” during a contentious exchange Monday on the Senate floor.
The two senators bickered as Cruz rose to object to Reid’s motion to appoint conferees to a House-Senate budget committee.
Cruz said he was concerned that the conference report—which cannot be filibustered—would be used to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. He asked that Reid amend his motion to go to conference to make out of order any provisions raising taxes or raising the debt ceiling.
Reid said Cruz had a chance to amend the Senate budget—which raises $975 billion in new tax revenue from tax reform—when it was considered on the floor.
He said Cruz’s request to eliminate all taxes in a final House-Senate budget was absurd.
“The senator from Texas was on the losing side…now he wants us to adopt the losing side’s view or we cannot go to conference,” Reid said.
“My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully,” Reid added.
However, not everyone thinks Cruz is a bully, some think he is amazing. Over the weekend, long time Democrat strategist James Carville said of Sen. Cruz, “I think he is the most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years.
Former Democrat NM Gov. Bill Richardson Says, Cuban-American Sen. Ted Cruz (TX-R) Shouldn’t Be Defined As a “Hispanic”
More Double Standard, Hypocrisy from the Democrat Party …
So let’s get this straight, former Democratic New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson made himself God and is going to define what is and what is not a Hispanic and this dude has the cojones that Cruz is none civil and rude. REALLY? So because Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R) does not tow the liberal, Democrat party line, he is not a “Hispanic”? Does Richardson actually realize just how ignorant that sounds? So in the Democrat world of plantation politics, or in this case “Hacienda” politics, one has to be a pro-illegal immigration individual in order to be considered a Hispanic. So much for Hispanics having freedom of thought and opinion. How absolutely offensive. Hispanics like Cruz represent a clear and present danger that a voter block that is predominantly Democrat might actually be greater represented by Cruz. Ted Cruz to Hispanics is interchangeable with Sarah Palin for woman and Dr. Benjamin Carson for blacks. Democrats just cannot accept a world where any of their voting blocks may actually have independent thought.
“I’m not a fan. I know [Ted Cruz is] sort of the Republican latest flavor. He’s articulate. He seems to be charismatic, but I don’t like his politics. I think he introduces a measure of incivility in the political process. Insulting people is not the way to go. But I guess he’s a force in the Republican political system, but I’m not a fan.”
ABC News: Do you think he represents most Hispanics with his politics?
“No, no. He’s anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic. He’s a politician from Texas. A conservative state. And I respect Texas’ choice. But what I don’t like is… when you try to get things done, it’s okay to be strong and state your views, your ideology. But I’ve seen him demean the office, be rude to other senators, not be part of, I think, the civility that is really needed in Washington.”
Fast-forward to 2:15 to get to the Ted Cruz comments as the beginning of this VIDEO is a yawner
It is actually reprehensible that a Democrat could think that they could define another because they just happen to not match in lockstep with them. Simply disgusting.
RAPE HOAX: Meg Lanker-Simons, Liberal Activist Threatened Herself With Rape and Blamed It on Conservatives … Cited by Police for Making False Statements
Looks like we have a modern day liberal Tawana Brawley …
Police have captured the evil, right-wing Conservative “hatef*ck” rapist who was making threats against an innocent and all loving liberal activist. Conservatives are just so evil. Oh wait, the whole thing was a hoax and this disgusting Lib actually made the whole thing up and tried to blame Conservatives. Unreal, liberalism really is a disease.
Liberal student activist Meg Lanker-Simons, liberal blogger and radio host at the University of Wyoming is being accused by police of fabricating a rape threat against herself to appear as if it came from a conservative. Isn’t that special. faking a rape so that you can falsely blame it on another individual. Police later discovered Lanker-Simons posted the threats herself. As per a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang OnlineOn, on Monday, The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department.”
A well-known female liberal blogger and radio host at the University of Wyoming (UW) is being accused by police of fabricating a rape threat against herself to appear as if it came from a conservative.
The obscene message directed at activist Meg Lanker-Simons was posted on a college “crush” Facebook page earlier this week and immediately ignited outrage from the college community.
“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. “I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.
Before the post was removed, Lanker-Simons commented on it and on her own blog, calling it “disgusting, misogynistic, and apparently something the admins of this page think is a perfectly acceptable sentiment.”
The Gateway Pundit follows up with this “peach” is a Think Progress Award-Winning Blogger and pals with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, NICE!
Just curious, how come the LEFT and Barack Obama do not complain about the following not being fair?
It must be nice to be the daughter of a former president of the United States, otherwise Chelsea Clinton would never have landed this plum position with NBC. Watch the following video and listen to this riveting interview with the GEICO Gecko. Good grief, are you serious? Talk about getting the big gets. If the material was not bad enough, the interviewing style and her voice are just unreal. Does anyone honestly thing that if Chelsea was not the daughter of Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton she would ever have got this job? Talk about nepotism and the rich getting richer.
From News Busters:
CHELSEA CLINTON: Getting pigeon-holed is a worry even for a gecko. So he was only too happy to answer our questions. Are you concerned about being typecast?
GECKO: Well, I definitely don’t get the hunky leading man roles. Although I could probably get the hunky leading gecko roles.
CLINTON: Have you always had that accent?
GECKO: Sorry, Chelsea, what accent?
CLINTON: After 15 years of selling insurance, this commercial star is looking to branch out.
GECKO: I’m out on the road promoting my new book “You’re Only Human.” Shameless plug there.
CLINTON: Is there a down side to all this fame?
GECKO: Well, it seems the more famous you are the more likely someone is to dig up your old yearbook photos
If she can’t properly interview a lizard, why does anyone think she is qualified to run for political office? Oh, that’s right, it does not matter, she offspring of the Clintons.
Huge Liberal Fail: Less Than 100 Show For Anti-NRA March at McPherson Square Downtown Washington, DC
WOW, seriously … where be all the anti-Second Amendment liberals?
Just curious, if a liberal anti-Second Amendment rally takes place and no one shows, is it really a rally? Thus was the case any the liberal anti-NRA march failed event at McPherson Square Downtown Washington, DC. Less than 100 people actually showed up for the event. The Washington Examiner provided 5 sad pictures of the event, and they are truly sad and pathetic. Personally, I find it rather humorous. Check out the pics, there might be actually more media than protesters. And everyone wonders why the Democrats attempt to grab guns failed in Congress.
Participating organizations include Public Campaign, Occupy the NRA, CREDO, Every Child Matters, Moveon, United For Change, USA, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, The Other 98%, and We Act Radio.
As Buzzfeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro noted earlier this morning, the event featured the debut of a new anti-NRA poster created by Shepard Fairey – the designer of the famous Obama ‘Hope’ poster.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: “All We Do Is Kill Arabs On International Television, That Might Have Something To Do With Jihad”
More blaming of America by Leftist MSNBC’s Chris Matthews …
Chris Matthews went on his liberal rant on ‘Hard Ball’, insisting that he opposes intervention into Syria and said that America spends too much of its energy intervening in Arab nations. “It’s all we do is kill Arabs on international television,” he opined. “I think that might have something to do with Jihad.” Huh, so once again we have the LEFT blaming America for radical Islam and their killing of infidels. According to Matthews, we have something to do with “jihad”. It is truly sad that those on the LEFT actually believe this nonsense. So I guess Matthews believes America was responsible for 9-11 as well?
Matthews confessed he is, as a “Vietnam guy,” often suspicious of intervention in foreign conflicts. “As horrible as that may be,” he added.
“As long as Syrians are fighting Syrians, that’s better than us fighting Syrians,” Matthews continued. “If we don’t stop killing Arabs on international television one of these days. It’s all we do is kill Arabs on international television.”
“I think that might have something to do with Jihad,” he concluded. “Just guessing.”
Rep. Tom Cotton Rips President Obama … “Five Jihadists Have Reached Their Targets in the US Under Barack Obama”
Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke on the House floor to raise grave doubts about the Obama Administration’s counterterrorism policies and programs. Cotton stated that in barely four years in office, five jihadists have reached their targets in the United States under Barack Obama: the Boston Marathon bomber, the underwear bomber, the Times Square Bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, and the Little Rock recruiting office shooter. Compare that to the number of Islamist jihadists that reached their target in the US following 9-11 under President George W. Bush … Zero.
Sorry, but this is an issue an it needs to be addressed, America’s safety is in question. It is a disturbing trend that this has occurred under this president. Obama refuses to tell the truth about the enemy. September 11, 2001 was supposed to be a wake up call for America. However, it would appear under Barack Obama that he is even afraid to utter the words, radical Islamist jihadist (Video). But Obama does not think there is a war on terror, its an overseas contingency operation. Barack Obama does not want us to jump to conclusions when it comes to jihadists, but when it comes to him jumping to conclusions in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case, the Cambridge Mass situation and blaming the right and the Tea Party for the ills of society, that’s ok.
From The Weekly Standard:
“I rise today to express grave doubts about the Obama Administration’s counterterrorism policies and programs,” said the freshman congressman from Arkansas. “Counterterrorism is often shrouded in secrecy, as it should be, so let us judge by the results. In barely four years in office, five jihadists have reached their targets in the United States under Barack Obama: the Boston Marathon bomber, the underwear bomber, the Times Square Bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, and in my own state—the Little Rock recruiting office shooter. In the over seven years after 9/11 under George W. Bush, how many terrorists reached their target in the United States? Zero! We need to ask, ‘Why is the Obama Administration failing in its mission to stop terrorism before it reaches its targets in the United States?’”
House of Rep Report: President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and State Department Blew the Benghazi Consulate Response
The US House of Representatives have come out with a report and it states that President Barack Obama, former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton and the State Department blew the Benghazi Consulate terror response … YA THINK!!!
As reported at the Washington Times, House Republicans state in a 46 page report that President Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton failed to heed the warnings provided to them prior the terror attack in Benghazi, Libya that lead to the death of four Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The GOP report stated the White House was responsible for prohibiting the mention of terrorism, and the report said administration officials were trying to shield themselves from criticism that they had been too lax in security. Clinton denied any knowledge, yet as reported at The Hill, an April 2012 State Department cable bearing Secretary Hillary Clinton’s signature acknowledged then-Ambassador [Gene] Cretz’s formal request for additional security assets but ordered the withdrawal of security elements to proceed as planned.” Following the terror attack, the White House then put UN Ambassador Susan Rice on the airwaves attempted to mislead Americans that the attack was a result of a video tape, not terrorism.
Obama to Clinton, If you don’t tell, neither will I …
House Republicans have concluded that the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence agencies bear no blame for failing to halt the terrorist assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last year, releasing a report Tuesday that said President Obama and the State Department set up the military for failure.
The report also found that plenty of intelligence presaged the attack, but the White House and State Department — including the secretary at the time, Hillary Rodham Clinton — failed to heed the warnings.
In the most damning conclusion, House Republicans said Mr. Obama’s team lied about the attacks afterward, first by blaming mob violence spawned by an anti-Muslim video, and then wrongly saying it had misled the public because it was trying to protect an FBI investigation.
“This progress report reveals a fundamental lack of understanding at the highest levels of the State Department as to the dangers presented in Benghazi, Libya, as well as a concerted attempt to insulate the Department of State from blame following the terrorist attacks,” the GOP investigation concluded in its 46-page report.
Make no mistake about it, when warnings and begging for more security go unanswered and in fact, less security was provided at a consulate and four people are murdered by terrorist … you better damn well believe that Obama and Hillary Clinton were at fault. However, a bias media, a president who has failed on terrorism and has told us Al Qaeda is defeated and a former secretary of State who wants to run for president, none of them will ever admit the truth or care to let the public know Obama’s and Clinton’s dereliction of duty.
Who honestly thinks that if a Republican was in office the MSM would not be demanding Watergate-style hearings?
