Charles Krauthammer Shreds Obama … President Obama Has Been Parsing Words In a Way That Makes Clinton Look Unsophisticated
Obama, it all depends on what is, is … or iRs, is.
Tonight on Special Report, Charles Krauthammer shredded Barack Obama with a thoughtful, professional and intellectual analysis of President Obama’s parsing of words that makes former President Bill Clinton look unsophisticated. Krauthammer is 100% correct, the words that Obama used during his feigned outrage with the IRS scandal made anyone who was actually paying attention and listening take notice. Krauthammer said Obama was acting more “Clintonian” than “Nixonian”. Obama did not say that he did not know about the IRS actions, he said he didn’t know about the IG report. However, the most damning critique may have been when Krauthammer stated, “if his own counsel learns about this 3 weeks before, how can the counsel … his counsel hears about this and doesn’t tell the president for three weeks about what is obviously a massive scandal?”
“He says I didn’t know about the IG report. Well if he didn’t know about any of this, never heard any complaints, then he would have said I don’t know anything about this at all. The IG is a peculiar answer by a guy who I have now seen for weeks now, he and his spokesman have been parsing words in a way that make Clinton look unsophisticated.”
The fact of the matter is that Barack Obama has to contort the language in such a manner because if he told the truth and simple said the obvious … he would be impeached.
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.
Sen Rand Paul (R-KY): “I Don’t Promote Marijuana … Last Two Presidents [Obama/GWB] Could Have Been Jailed For Their Drug Use” … Don’t Forget Bill Clinton
This morning on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) weighed in on recreational drug use in today’s society and the penalties for being convicted. Paul stated that he did not promote the use of drugs, even marijuana; however, he also thought that the penalties were far too severe. Paul is not for the legalization of drugs, but also not to incarcerate individuals for long period of times for non-violent crimes. He does not want to put people in jail and ruin their lives. Rand Paul went on to say that the last two presidents [Obama, GWB]could have been jailed for their drug use. Wallace was quick to jump in and correct the Kentucky Senator by saying, probably the last three presidents, although Bill Clinton claims he did not inhale (VIDEO).
Sen. Rand Paul said Sunday that President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush could have “conceivably been put in jail” for their drug use, ruining their lives and impacting their getting elected to office.
“Look, the last two presidents could have conceivably been put in jail for their drug use and I really think – look what would’ve happened, it would’ve ruined their lives. They got lucky. But a lot of poor kids, particularly in the inner city, don’t get lucky and they don’t have good attorneys and they go to jail for some of these things and I think it’s a big mistake,” the Kentucky Republican said on Fox’s “Fox News Sunday.”
“Actually, I think it would be the last three presidents, but who’s counting?” host Chris Wallace said with a laugh, referring to former President Bill Clinton.
Legendary Journalist Bob Woodward Calls Out Obama For Sequestration … “That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time” (Video)
File this one under the category when someone in the main stream media actually does their job and holds a president accountable no matter what his party affiliation.
Legendary journalist Bob Woodward of “Watergate” fame is calling out President Barack Obama as the deadline for sequestration nears. As the Obama White House uses scare tactics instead of leadership telling Americans that all things will cease to exist, families will suffer, children will go hungry and the sun will not come up tomorrow … Bob Woodward calls out Obama and likens his actions to madness. Woodward blasted President Obama for playing politics with sequestration and putting the United States at national security rick.
It’s one think for Republicans or conservative media to say that Obama is showing a failure to lead, but then one of the journalistic lions like Bob Woodward says it … everyone takes notice and listens.
Transcript from Real Clear Politics:
Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’ Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need’ or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ as he did when Clinton was president because of some budget document? Under the Constitution, the president is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the president going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country. That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time.
It certainly is madness. Yes, just imagine how the liberal MSM would be reporting this story if Reagan or either of the Bush presidents has done the same and put party politics over country?
This is going to leave a mark against Obama. Bob Woodward is a respected journalist and it is going to be fool hearty for Obama and his minion to tarnish Woodward’s image. Although they will certainly try.
President Barack Obama Averaged 49.1% Job Approval During First Term in Office, Among the Lowest of Post World War II Presidents
Second Term Mandate … Hardly.
According to Gallup, President Barack Hussein Obama’s job approval during his first term in office was among the lowest of ant of the post-World War II presidents. His average of 49.1% during his first term and 48.1% during his final year of his first term is only above Jimmy Carter and George H.G. Bush. However, these two individuals lost reelection. With a consistent high unemployment rate, record number of individuals on food stamps, near record low job participation and record debt, it makes one scratch their heads how GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney did not defeat Obama.
One really has to wonder just how low Barack Obama’s job approval ratings would be if he did not have the liberal MSM carrying his water and opening supporting and campaigning for him. How would the American people feel about Barack Obama if they did not have a lying and complicit propagandist media running cover for him? It explains how such an epic failure of a president was reelected. Which begs the questions, had it not been for the corrupt liberal media complex, would a lazy and apathetic America still voted him in for a second term or would they still have bought into Obama’s divisiveness and class warfare?
President Barack Obama averaged 49.1% job approval during his first term in office, among the lowest for post-World War II presidents. Only Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford had lower job approval averages. Obama’s first-term average is most similar to Bill Clinton’s. Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, and Dwight Eisenhower were the most popular first-term presidents.
Obama’s first-term approval average, like those of most presidents with lower first-term averages, was likely dragged down by a sluggish economy. Clinton and Reagan saw higher second-term approval as the economy improved. Obama’s approval rating has also shown improvement, with a 48.1% average in his fourth year in office after a 44.4% average in his third year.
Will President Barack Obama take Bill Clinton’s advice not to patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them?
Many Democrats consider former President the voice of reason and the elder statesman of their party. Even with his sordid past and numerous moral indiscretions, Bill Clinton is considered the wild card of the party and the reason why Barack Obama won reelection. During the 2012 Democrat national convention Clinton stated that not even he could have fixed the economy that Obama inherited, which of course was a bold face lie, but in doing so paved the way for an Obama victory. Now the voice of the Democrat party Bill Clinton is warning Democrats not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among Americans. Clinton told Democrats not to trivialize them and “Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them.”
Former President Bill Clinton warned a group of top Democratic donors at a private Saturday meeting not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among many Americans.
“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.
“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world.”
Clinton dedicated a substantial portion of his 40-minute address before a joint meeting of the Obama National Finance Committee and a group of business leaders to the issue of guns and gun control, saying that it was a test-case for President Barack Obama’s grass-roots movements. (POLITICO was given a transferable ticket by an invited member of the committee.)
But it is hard to imagine that Obama and Democrats will not act in a smug and arrogant manner when it comes to gun control. President Obama is a “community agitator” and divider, not one who governs by consensus. They cared little of the American people when it came to Obamacare when they rammed the government control of health care down “We the People’s” throats. Then they saw that instead of being punished for their behavior, they were reelected. Barack Obama has already stated when it comes to the gun owner, they “cling to their guns and religion”. One can only imagine how understanding he will be of them after reelection and his efforts to push forth his liberal, anti-Second Amendment agenda. But as the PJ Tatler stated, “if there is one issue that can cut through party and even ideology, it is gun control and the passions that are raised when government feels it has the power to infringe on the rights of gun owners.”
Who said that Clinton stands with the president? In his closing remarks Bill Clinton seemed to be urging Democratic lawmakers to vote against the president:
Clinton closed his remarks with a warning to big Democratic donors that ultimately many Democratic lawmakers will be defeated if they choose to stand with the president.
“Do not be self-congratulatory about how brave you for being for this” gun control push, he said. “The only brave people are the people who are going to lose their jobs if they vote with you.”
The Bubba Bailout in Pennsylvania … Clinton Called in the Drag Obama Across the Finish Line Complete with Clinton Theme Song
FORWARD? I must have missed something … is Bill Clinton running for a third presidential term?
HEY BARACK … VOTERS KNOW THAT HOPE AND CHANGE IS NOT THE SAME AS A MAN FROM HOPE.
How pathetic is Obama’s reelection campaign, they are 100% depending on former President Bill Clinton to drag Obama across the finish line. This is how an incumbent president runs a campaign when they have had four failed years on the economy, jobs and foreign policy. Obama can’t run on his own record so he coops the Clinton presidency … complete with stealing his Fleetwood Mac theme music. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
The reality for Democrats is that they wish Bill Clinton was running for a third term as opposed to Obama. They probably would have preferred Hillary to Obama as well. I personally believe that having Clinton on teh campaign trail with Obama is a losing proposition for the president. Too many voters are looking at Clinton and longing for the days of yore and wondering why a so-called “Hope and Change” president is not the same as a Man from Hope.
Serious, how does Obama claim his 2012 message is “FORWARD” when he is going backwards to the 1990′s and Bill Clinton? By the way Barack, unless you are planning on having a dot.com bubble in the economy, it is going to be pretty hard to recreate the Obama years. You would have a better chance with an intern in a blue dress.
Way to Stay Classy Democrats … Bill Clinton Politicizes Hurricane Sandy, Compares Romney Election to Hurricane Sandy
I guess when Obama and Democrats accuse Romney of murder, being compared to a deadly hurricane is par for the course.
It did not take long at all for Democrats to politicize Hurricane Sandy. Yesterday, former president Bill Clinton used the threat of the pending hurricane to compare to next week’s Presidential election.Comparing the election to a deadly hurricane, really Mr. Clinton? Way to keep in classy Slick Willy.
“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”
Although, Clinton says that unless the “right” decision is made we are facing a storm worse than Hurricane Sandy. Maybe he is referring to Obama’s reelection as what could be worse?
Democrat Pat Caddell: “There Is a Purposeful Conscious Effort to Suppress News That Might Hurt Obama” (Video)
From liberal media bias … to the Press now actively engaged in determining an election … “Purposeful Conscious Effort to Suppress News That Might Hurt Obama”
During an interview on The O’Reilly Factor, Democratic pollster Pat Caddell told Bill O’Reilly tonight that there is a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might hurt Obama. In a speech seen n the below VIDEO, Caddell stated that if any other President of either party, whether it was Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Ronald Regan, or George H.W. Bush had a terrorist incident and got on a plane and flew off to a fund raiser in Las Vegas, they would have been crucified by the press. However, not for Barack Obama, nothing was said at all, and nothing will be said.
“Purposeful Conscious Effort to Suppress News That Might Hurt Obama”
VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
“Whether its organized or a straight conspiracy and we have gone down a slippery slope here. Look Bill, we’ve had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. And it’s gotten worse starting in 2008. But now we’ve got a press that is actively engaged in a reelection – putting out a narrative that Romney is a loser, they’re running polls… But Romney’s not my issue here. More importantly they not only decided to support Obama. On this issue the last two weeks what we see is a press that has decided that it will not tell the American people the truth.”
Charles Krauthammer commented on Fox News last night following former President Clinton’s speech at the DNC, Krauthammer stated that he that that Bill Clinton struck out. He stated that it was a typical Clinton speech, but was one of the strangest nomination speeches ever given, It sounded more like a campaign speech for a third Clinton term. Krauthammer went on to say that no other president could have done any better than this or fix this, referring to the American economy. However, Barack Obama’s slogan in 2008 was, “yes we can”. Krauthammer considered Clinton’s speech as a wasted opportunity.
This is a must see VIDEO, Krauthammer explains in great deal the differences between Obama and Clinton and how both went about their second two years in office in completely opposite ways. Clinton went to the middle and compromised with Republicans following the 1994 Republican revolution. In contrast Obama doubled down and went further Left after the 2010 midterm shellacking.
“I think it was a giant swing and a miss. Mighty Casey, and Bill Clinton is a natural, struck out on this. I don’t think it will move the needle whatsoever… The This was one of the strangest nomination speeches ever given.”
Full text of Bill Clinton’s speech can be read HERE.
Who really believes that Barack Obama is going to fix the economy like Bill Clinton did back in the day? First of all there is no dot.com bubble. Second, Obama is no Clinton. Third, before everyone starts singing the glowing praises of Clinton, he did leave office in a down turn in the economy as the dot coms fell apart. Only 32% of American likely voters think Obama and Clinton see eye to eye on the economy.
