Russian President Putin Laughs at Obama’s Weak Statements as Russian Troops Invade the Crimea Region of Ukraine (Update: Russian Parliament Unanimously Approves Military Intervention in Ukraine)
Elections do have consequences, especially when you elect a community agitator, a Campaigner in Chief, a Golfer in Chief, rather than a serious Commander in Chief …
Russian President Vladimir Putin looks to bring back the footprint and prestige of the former Soviet Union while Barack Obama makes the United States less influential and respected in the world. President Barack Obama issued a stern warning to Putin that Russia’s actions were a “clear violation,” “breach of International law” in Ukraine. Obama also went on to say “that he was deeply concerned” and “there would be costs” and the U.S. would stop participating in preparatory meetings for the G8 summit set to be held in Sochi June 4-5. Obama said in an unscheduled statement from the White House briefing room, “Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interests of Ukraine, Russia or Europe.” I am guessing that Putin has made a cost/benefit analysis that it is in the best interest of Russia. Who honesty thinks that Putin is afraid of anything Obama says?
As the rest of the world watches Ukraine, so does the White House.
Amid reports of Russian military and paramilitary presence in Ukraine, President Obama spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin for 90 minutes today, calling on Russia to withdraw its forces.
Obama “expressed his deep concern over Russia’s clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, which is a breach of international law,” according to a White House readout, warning that Russia’s activity “would negatively impact Russia’s standing in the international community” and “will lead to greater political and economic isolation,” according to the White House’s paraphrasing.
The U.S. will also stop participating in preparatory meetings for the G8 summit set to be held in Sochi June 4-5, the White House said.
UPDATE I: Charles Krauthammer: ‘The Ukrainians – and I Think Everybody – Are Shocked by the Weakness of Obama’s Statements’.
Some were astonished by Barack Obama’s comments as being incredibly weak, present company included. If you watch the above video and Obama’s statements you can see that this president does not get it. The weak, naive president’s statement sounded in more of a professorial lecture of a laundry list of feel good items like Obama was at a State of the Union speech rather than facing down a ruthless individual. Putin is KGB, he is merely laughing at Obama’s weak response and wanting no part in confrontation.
The Blaze reports on Charles Krauthammer’s comments from Fox News ‘Special Report’. Welcome to what 1980 would have looked like had the voters of the United States not had the common sense and where with all to elect Ronald Reagan over Jimmy Carter.
Syndicated columnist and political commentator Charles Krauthammer on Friday said President Barack Obama’s statement on the alleged Russian invasion of Crimea, Ukraine, was so weak it was “staggering.” In fact, he argued the president “could not have issued a more flaccid statement.”
Krauthammer told Bret Baier that the “Ukrainians — and I think everybody — are shocked by the weakness of Obama’s statements.”
“I find it rather staggering,” he added. “What he’s saying is we’re not going to really do anything, and we’re telling the world.”
But the request appeared likely to go unheeded as the Kremlin issued a defiant-sounding statement saying Putin stressed to Obama that the situation in Ukraine poses “real threats” to the life and health of Russian citizens and compatriots who live in Ukrainian territory.
“Vladimir Putin emphasized that, in the case of a further spread in violence in eastern regions (of Ukraine) and Crimea, Russia maintains the right to protect its interests and the Russian-speaking population that lives there,” the Kremlin statement said.
Russia Invaded Ukraine: ‘Invasion’ by Russian Soldiers
Russia invading Ukraine … Looks like a scene from ‘Red Dawn’
Putin’s War in Crimea Could Soon Spread to Eastern Ukraine And nobody—not the U.S., not NATO—can stop him, Welcome to 1979 and Jimmy Carter.
Why is Putin doing this? Because he can. That’s it, that’s all you need to know. The situation in Kiev—in which people representing one half of the country (the Ukrainian-speaking west) took power to some extent at the expense of the Russian-speaking east—created the perfect opportunity for Moscow to divide and conquer. As soon as the revolution in Kiev happened, there was an unhappy rumbling in the Crimea, which has a large Russian population and is home to the Russian Black Sea Fleet. It was a small rumbling, but just big enough for Russia to exploit. And when such an opportunity presents itself, one would be foolish not to take it, especially if one’s name is Vladimir Putin.
UPDATE III: Russian Parliament Unanimously Approves Military Intervention in Ukraine, even after Russians had already invaded the Crimean peninsula.
Russia’s parliament approved a motion to use the country’s military in Ukraine after a request from President Vladimir Putin as protests in Russian-speaking cities turned violent Saturday, sparking fears of a wide-scale invasion.
The motion follows President Barack Obama’s warning Friday “there will be costs” if Russia intervenes militarily, sharply raising the stakes in the conflict over Ukraine’s future and evoking memories of Cold War brinkmanship.
“I’m submitting a request for using the armed forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine pending the normalization of the socio-political situation in that country,” Putin said in his request sent to parliament.
I cannot reiterate more the words from The Lonely Conservative … “Elections have consequences. Not just for us here in the US, but for the world. Mission accomplished.” Amen Sister!!!
Welcome to Obama in Wonderland: Even Though Obamacare Website Not Working Properly, White House Declares Victory Anyway, “We Have Met The Goal”
Welcome to Obamacare in Wonderland, where up is down and right is wrong …
Has the bar ever been set so low for anything that would affect so many American’s lives? Even though the Obamacare web site still has numerous problems and unresolved issues like data being transmitted to insurance companies and crucial system issues involving payments to insurance companies, not to mention security issues … Barack Obama and his minions have declared “VICTORY” and stated that they have met their goals. Of course they have, and you can keep your insurance if you like it also.
The Obama administration claimed victory Sunday for making HealthCare.gov workable for the vast majority of users, a standard that will be tested as millions of people flood the site in the next three weeks.
Sunday marked the passage of the administration’s self-imposed deadline for fixing the broken ObamaCare enrollment website, which serves consumers in 36 states.
The agency that oversees HealthCare.gov said “we believe we have met the goal” of making the system navigable for most people, but cautioned that more problems may lie ahead.
“Dramatic progress has been made,” the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) stated in a report released Sunday morning. “[But] there is more work to be done to continue to improve and enhance the website.”
The mixed message highlights the challenge facing the Obama administration as it seeks to ensure that millions can sign up for individual health plans online by the end of March.
Oh but wait, here is a ringing endorsement that they have met their goals … David Plouffe, President Obama’s former campaign manager said Sunday said on ABC’s “This Week” that it may be years until 2017 before ObamaCare is working “really well.” 2017???!!!??? Hey, wait until 3017, I bet it will be doing gangbusters by then! But wait, I thought Barack Obama declared “Mission Accomplished?”
“This program was designed to be implemented by the states. And in most of the states that are running their exchanges it’s going quite well,” Plouffe told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “You talked about Medicaid expansion. I think it’s just a fact, and it may take until 2017 when this president leaves office, you’re going to see almost every state in this country running their own exchanges eventually and expanding Medicaid. And I think it’ll work really well then.”
They just don’t get it do they, or they just don’t want to admit it. The Healthcare.gov website are the least of their issues. It’s the fact that 5+ million people have lost their healthcare and are peeved. Obama’s promise of keeping their good insurance was a lie. Now Americans are faced with losing their insurance, their hospitals and their doctors. The disaster is just beginning for Obamacare and the pain it is going to inflict upon Americans.
“You see the interest out there … people want healthcare,” Plouffe said. “They’re going to be able to get healthcare.”
“So, if the website is working … people will tell their siblings or they’ll talk their brothers, or sisters or their friends, say I went on, it was pretty easy, I got healthcare. I’m happy with the plan. So, this is going to be something that person to person is going to get fixed or not. And I think what you’re beginning to see is the interest is spiking, because the interest is out there. People just need an easy experience and it hasn’t been easy,” he added.
Plouffe said the administration has gone through a “tough patch” with the botched rollout of ObamaCare, adding that the government shutdown also affected Americans’
The eager liberal media was all but ready to hold Obama’s minions hands to the fire and have an objective, tough and fair discussion about the train wreck called Obamacare. Sure they were. Then a funny thing happened, as opined by Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com, Meet the Depressed had a fair and balanced discussion. David Brinkley is shaking his head in embarrassing disgust and shame. The MSM could not wait to gush over Obama and that the website worked better. Um, worked better than what, a crash a minute? So the water-carrying media are all to joyful to say that the Obama administration came thru on their promise to get the website back up and working better … too bad they can’t say the same about Obama’s promises to the American people that they can keep their healthcare insurance if they like it.
Meanwhile, “Meet the Press” had an Obamacare “Reality Check” segment this morning featuring Ezekiel Emanuel and Ezra Klein. David Gregory planned to have somebody on the panel more to the right of those two in order to provide some balance, but Nancy Pelosi was unable to make it.
Deal Reached Between Iran & Six World Powers (US, Britain, Russia, China, France and German) Over Tehran’s Nuclear Program … Obama Claims It Will Put “Substantial Limitations” to Prevent Iran From Creating a Nuclear Weapon (Israel PM Calls Deal a ‘Historic Mistake’
OH DEAR GOD … From the President who gave us Obamacare and promised Americans that if they liked their insurance and doctors, they could keep them, PERIOD! comes the following promised deal.
The WAPO is reporting that an agreement was reached over night between Iran and six world powers, the United States, Britain, Russia, China, France and German, that will freeze key parts of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for temporary relief on some economic sanctions. What does this mean? For the next six months Iran is supposedly going to freeze or reverse progress at all of it’s major nuclear facilities and is supposed to halt the installation of new centrifuges used to enrich uranium and caps the amount and type of enriched uranium that Iran is allowed to produce. For this Iran will some relief of trade sanctions and access to some of its frozen currency accounts overseas, concessions said to be valued at less than $7 billion over the six month term of the deal.
Iran and six major powers agreed early Sunday on a historic deal that freezes key parts of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for temporary relief on some economic sanctions.
The agreement, sealed at a 3 a.m. signing ceremony in Geneva’s Palace of Nations, requires Iran to halt or scale back parts of its nuclear infrastructure, the first such pause in more than a decade.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hailed the deal, which was reached after four days of hard bargaining, including an eleventh-hour intervention by Secretary of State John F. Kerry and foreign ministers from Europe, Russia and China.
“It is important that we all of us see the opportunity to end an unnecessary crisis and open new horizons based on respect, based on the rights of the Iranian people and removing any doubts about the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program,” Zarif told reporters in English. “This is a process of attempting to restore confidence.”
Hmm, and we are supposed to trust Iran why exactly? Well at this point very few Americans trust the Obama administration. As anyone knows, an agreement is only as good as those signing it. The fact that Iran has never kept its word means nothing to
Neville Chamberlain Barack Obama.
Just mere hours after the nuclear deal was reached, the Associated Press reported that Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said the deal recognizes Tehran’s “rights” to maintain an atomic program.
As part of the deal, according to Zarif, Iran retains the right to nuclear technology, including the enriching of uranium under the terms of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons — which requires it not to create nuclear weapons or enable other countries to obtain them.
Iran has agreed to what U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry described as “unprecedented international monitoring” of its nuclear program.
Check out at the 3:40 mark in the video above and also reported on by the Gateway Pundit that
Neville Chamberlain Barack Obama says, “Iran should be able to access ‘Peaceful’ nuclear energy. Are you kidding me. This would be a kin to the Russian village of Oymyakon, that has the coldest recorded temperatures of any permanently inhabited location should have access to peaceful air conditioning. Exactly how could one be this clueless and trusting, unless you are Charlie Brown thinking that this is the one time Lucy will not pull the ball away before you kick it? In the very sentence that Obama claims Iran should have access to nuclear energy, he comments they have a record of violating its obligations. Um, and it is going to be different this time, how exactly?
“Iran should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy, but because of its record of violating its obligations, Iran must accept strict limitations on its nuclear program.”
The NRO opines, that this is a “Foreign-Policy Disaster”. Yeah, how did that piece of paper signed by Adolph Hitler and peace in our time work for Britain and Europe?
This wretched deal offers one of those rare occasions when comparison with Neville Chamberlain in Munich in 1938 is valid. An overeager Western government, blind to the evil cunning of the regime it so much wants to work with, appeases it with concessions that will come back to haunt it. Geneva and Nov. 24 will be remembered along with Munich and Sep. 29.
Barack Obama has made many foreign-policy errors in the past five years, but this is the first to rank as a disaster. Along with the health-care law, it is one of his worst-ever steps. John Kerry is a too-eager puppy looking for a deal at any price.
With the U.S. government forfeiting its leadership role, the Israelis, Saudis, and perhaps others are left to cope with a bad situation made worse.
UPDATE I: Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, said in a statement broadcast live on television Sunday morning: “Trust is, of course, a two-way street, and we must also find this trust in others. The first step in creating that trust has been taken.” But then again, who has proved they cannot be trusted?
One of the achievements of Sunday’s agreement, according to Rouhani, is that “the sanctions will be broken. The cracks in the sanctions started began last night, and in future those gaps will be grow.”
Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has long doubted the sincerity of Western leaders, expressed guarded approval of the agreement.
Responding to a letter from Rouhani, Khamenei thanked the efforts of Iran’s negotiating team, led by foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, but asked them to continue their vigilance in dealing with old enemies.
“God willing, standing against the arrogant powers is and will be the main criteria on the path forward for those in charge of this issue,” Khamenei wrote.
UPDATE II: Israeli Leader Calls Iran Deal ‘Historic Mistake’ … I think they would know better than John Kerry or Barack Obama seeing that it is Israel that is in the cross-hairs of Iran.
Because why would the Obama administration not get the OK from its greatest ally in the Middle East and the target of Iran’s offensive nuclear capability? PM Netanyahu said, ”What was reached last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, it is a historic mistake. Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world made a significant step in obtaining the most dangerous weapons in the world.”
Israel’s prime minister harshly condemned the international community’s nuclear deal with Iran on Sunday, calling it a “historic mistake” and saying he was not bound by the agreement.
Speaking to his Cabinet, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the world had become a “more dangerous place” as a result of the deal and reiterated a long-standing threat to use military action against Iran if needed, declaring that Israel “has the right and the duty to defend itself by itself.”
Israel believes Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon, and in the weeks leading up to Sunday’s agreement, Netanyahu had warned the emerging deal was insufficient.
He had called for increased pressure on Iran, and warned that any relief from economic sanctions would make Iran less willing to compromise during a coming, six-month period aimed at reaching a final agreement.
Netanyahu told his Cabinet that Sunday’s deal gave Iran much-needed relief from the sanctions, but left most of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure intact. In particular, he cited Iran’s continued ability to enrich uranium, a key step in making a nuclear bomb.
EPIC FAIL: President Barack Obama Bombs in Berlin … a Weak, Underwhelming Address From a Floundering President
Barack Obama, International Rock Star No More …
The UK Telegraph just rips Barack Obama’s underwhelming speech apart as they compare it to the one’s that JFK and Ronald Reagan made in Berlin. What else would one expect from a weak, ineffective and scandal ridden president? Because truth be known and its about time that America and the World admit it, Obama really is an empty suit and an epic failure. Obama is no JFK and he certainly is no Reagan. Obama is simply an emperor with no clothes and now no audience. Obama’s speech yesterday in Berlin was as weak as it gets and showed just how small this president has become. Obama took his scandal plagued, failed economy on the road for what seemed more like a State of the Union laundry list of begs on the road to Europe. His lame speech can be read HERE. One has to wonder who thought this was a good idea. Is his ego really that big and is Obama do deluded to think that this small, tiny, miniscule speech was on par with JFK and RWR? All that has been accomplished during Obama’s European vacation is just how much he has diminished the role of the President and the United States in the World.
John F. Kennedy – I am a Berliner – “Ich Bin Ein Berliner”
Take a look what a real president looks like speaking in Berlin, Germany
When John F. Kennedy delivered his “Ich Bin Ein Berliner” speech in front of the Brandenburg Gate on June 26, 1963, 450,000 people flocked to hear him. Fifty years later a far more subdued invitation-only crowd of 4,500 showed up to hear Barack Obama speak at the same location in Berlin. As The National Journal noted, “he didn’t come away with much, winning just a smattering of applause from a crowd that was one-hundredth the size of JFK’s,” and far smaller than the 200,000 boisterous Germans who had listened to his 2008 address as a presidential candidate. JFK had a clear message when he came to Berlin a half century ago – the free world must stand up to Communist tyranny. 24 years later, President Reagan stood in the same spot famously calling on the Soviets to “tear down this wall.” Reagan’s speech was a seminal moment that ushered in the downfall of an evil empire, and gave hope to tens of millions of people behind the Iron Curtain. It was a display of strength and conviction by the leader of the free world, sending an unequivocal message of solidarity with those who were fighting for freedom in the face of a monstrous totalitarian ideology.
In stark contrast to that of his presidential predecessors, Barack Obama’s message on Wednesday was pure mush, another clichéd “citizens of the world” polemic with little substance. This was a speech big on platitudes and hopeless idealism, while containing much that was counter-productive for the world’s superpower. Ultimately it was little more than a laundry list of Obama’s favorite liberal pet causes, including cutting nuclear weapons, warning about climate change, putting an end to all wars, shutting Guantanamo, ending global poverty, and backing the European Project. It was a combination of staggering naiveté, the appeasement of America’s enemies and strategic adversaries, and the championing of more big government solutions.
President Ronald Reagan – “Tear Down this Wall”
Another great President in Berlin, German
What did we get from Barack Obama? A political liberal beg speech of his liberal wish list that has nothing to do with anything except show just how shallow and small Obama really has become. It was nothing more than embarrassing.
Barack Obama to Teach Young People ‘How to Budget Responsibly’ … What Next Bill Clinton Teaching Monogamy
You just can’t make this stuff up … More from the tales of Obama in Wonderland.
President Barack Obama is the poster child for wasteful government spending. President Obama has not had a budget since he has been president and has increased the national debt by trillions with no end in sight. Obama has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household since he was elected now has the audacity to proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month where he will teach young people “how to budget responsibly.” HUH? If there was an individual never to take advice from on budget responsibility, it would be Barack Obama. As stated by Weasel Zippers, “Should the guy who can’t submit a budget by the legal deadline to save his life really be lecturing young people on how to budget?”
When Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the total debt of the federal government was $10,626,877,048,913.08. As of the close of business on March 28, 2013, the total debt of the federal government was $16,766,988,432,792.62—an increase of $6,140,111,383,879.54 since Obama took office.
President Barack Obama, who has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household, has proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month,” during which his administration will do things such as teach young people “how to budget responsibly.”
“I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices,” Obama said in an official proclamation released Friday.
“My Administration is dedicated to helping people make sound decisions in the marketplace,” he said.
“Together, we can prepare young people to tackle financial challenges–from learning how to budget responsibly to saving for college, starting a business, or opening a retirement account,” he said.
This guy has some crust. What’s next Bill Clinton lecturing us on Monogamywith guest speakers former North Carolina Senator John Edwards? Maybe the late Ted Kennedy can teach youngsters drivers education? Good Grief!!!
Sequester for Thee, Not for Me … Bo the Obama Dog Keeps His Motorcade, WH Calligraphers & Never Ending Air Force One Travel, But Children Prevented from Touring White House
Sequester for Thee, Not for Me …
Never has there been a president who cared less about the plight of the American people and acted more like King Louis the XVI’s than President Barack Hussein Obama. It is simple shameless that Barack Obama would inflict pain upon the American people through sequestration to make his childish point and attempt to score political points. Obama is the president who continually talks about shared sacrifice and that every ne must have skin in the game. One would think that he might start with himself and lead by example. That is what a leader would do. However, Obama is no leader. He is a community agitator whose sole job is to keep people at each others throats. Barack Obama is a petty president and it has never been witnessed more just how “small” he is than his threats of the end of times when sequestration took place and his efforts to make sure that “We the People” felt pain, rather than just making cuts that every responsible American has had to do in the past 4 years.
Iowa School children beg Obama to keep tours open. Had it been a Republican President, the MSM would have reported … Obama tells children to pound sand.
As the White House has stated that the tours will end and school children across America who had trips planned are SOL, all in the name of sequester cuts. However, sequestration has not stopped Barack Obama from going about his normal daily life. As government workers are furloughed, Obama tells tourists they can no longer visit the White House, Obama claims long lines will be experienced at airports and he lets illegal aliens loose in the US because of sequestration, one has to wonder what cuts Obama and the first family will feel? In the past, as reported at the Gateway Pundit via Business, Obama finds the money to take his motorcade with Bo, the first dog, to travel to PetSmart. Does anyone think that Obama will be losing his motorcade? How about less travel time on Air Force One?
The National Parks yearly budget for the White House visitors center is about $9 million or the cost to operate Air Force One for approximately 51 hours. But Obama supposedly cares about the children. BS! And of course the White House has no problem in keeping three calligraphers for a total if $277K a year.
Just curious, if Obama cannot handle 2.3% cuts from government programs without claiming that the sky will fall and such cuts would bring the end of times, how are we supposed to take him serious that he would reform entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and welfare and programs like Social Security?
While President Barack Obama has spent weeks warning of the dark consequences of across-the-board budget cuts, there’s one area of government where his staff has failed to calculate their impact: the White House itself.
Obama administration spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Thursday that “detailed decisions” have yet to be made about how the administration would meet a projected $24 million reduction to the executive office budget, which may include furloughs of presidential aides and other employees.
“I’m not going say that this person is going have to be furloughed today, if that hasn’t happened yet and we don’t know when that will happen specifically,” he said.
The law requires the executive office of the president, which has about 2,000 employees, to cut approximately $24 million out of its $711 million fiscal year 2013 budget request, according to a report by the White House Office of Management and Budget released the day the reductions came into effect.
Media Bias: CBS 60 Minutes Does Not Air on TV Barack Obama Admitting Mistakes in Campaign Ads … AKA Lying and Presenting Falsehoods against Romney
More Media Bias … Obama admits false ads against Romney and CBS decides not to air the comment on TV …
Could there be any greater example of MSM liberal bias than CBS’s 60 Minutes not airing during tehir TV broadcast that President Barack Obama admitted to mistakes in his campaign ads. UNREAL. CBS in their infinite wisdom and keeping up with being in the tank for Obama never allowed this to air during the TV broadcast, only posting it in line. During the interview Obama admits to … ” “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made … “. Mistakes made, or purposeful smear campaign Mr. President? But Obama justifies his campaigns deceitful lies because there is a lot at stake. Welcome to Chicago thug style politics. The GOP and Romney best not bring a knife to a political gun fight.
Barack Obama admits false political advertizing, but that’s ok, because you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election.
From the Weekly Standard:
Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides,” Kroft says to Obama in the unaired clip, “and say they’ve been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your ads.”
Obama responds: “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics.”
Kroft responds: “Aren’t the American entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?”
“The truth of the matter is, most of the time we’re having a vigorous debate about a vision for the country,” Obama says. “And, you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election. So is it going to be sharp sometimes? Absolutely. But will the American people ultimately have a good sense of where I want to take the country and where Gov. Romney takes the country? I think they will.”
What, you mean that Obama and his minions knew that Romney did not help murder a cancer patient, did pay taxes and that the GOP is not out to kill old people and children, harm the air and water and kick granny off the cliff?
President Barack Obama Campaign Quietly Pulls Faux Flag from Shop Obama … You Mean We Can’t Pleadge Allegiance to Obama Anymore?
What to do America … you can do longer order the Obama flag of un-America.
It appears the tasteless Obama flag, entitled ‘Our Stripes’, has been removed from the shop Obama campaign store. Say it isn’t so, what is the LEFT going to do” How are they going to pledge allegiance to Obama without their pledge pin? Can America give a collective, WTF! How arrogant are these people that they would create such a piece of merchandise and charge $35 for the flag of the Obama states of un-America? The reelect Obama team replaced the stars with the Obama campaign logo. I guess they could not figure out how many stars to put on the flag.
As reported at Buzz Feed, although the web page no longer brings up the offensive item, for those of you who think this is BS, the cached page still brings of the item; however, an error when one tries to add it to their cart. It is hard to believe that any other Presidential candidate would ever be so arrogant and narcissistic that they would even dream of doing such a thing. Then again, we have to remember who we are speaking of.
Also, let’s not forget the creepy fact that this Obama flag’s stripes have a hauntingly and grisly similarity to the pictures at the Libyan consulate in Benghazi that showed the the blood stained images of fingers being dragged across the column (picture can bee seen HERE). It is bad enough that Team Obama would try and create a flag in their Obamamessiah’s image, but to have it resemble the disastrous Obama foreign policy blunder and the murder of a US Ambassador, really?
No one can ever accuse Obama and his minions of having taste. Vave these people no shame at all?
Obama in Wonderland … Democrat Minions Spin Embarassing Recall Victory by Wisconsin Gov. Walker as a Positive for Progressives & Unions … Huh?
Welcome to Obama in Wonderland, where up is down, left is right and if Team Obama are talking … they are lying through their teeth.
After last nights resounding recall election victory by Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov Kleefisch in Wisconsin, Team Obama actually had the audacity to say that Democrats sent a strong message to Walker. Huh? Actually Mr. President, you, Democrats and labor unions were just sent a message. In 2010 Walker defeated Barrett 52% to 47%. In 2012 Walker defeats Barrett by an even larger margin 53% to 46%. So who was sent a strong message Team Obama? It is rather comical that Obama would comment now. Maybe the Obama minions should have Tweeted these comments.
Yes, really America, the recall election was a victory for me!!!
While tonight’s outcome was not what we had hoped for – no one can dispute the strong message sent to Governor Walker. Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites from all walks of life took a stand against the politics of division and against the flood of secret and corporate money spent on behalf of Scott Walker, which amounted to a massive spending gap of more than $31 million to $4 million,” said Tripp Wellde, campaign state director.
“It is a testament to all of those individuals who talked to their friends, neighbors, and colleagues about the stakes in this election of how close this contest was. The power of Wisconsin’s progressive, grassroots tradition was clearly on display throughout the run up to this election and we will continue to work together to ensure a brighter future for Wisconsin’s middle class.
I beg to differ with you Obama minions, I think that 53% of voters in Wisconsin dispute your so-called strong message. Just a note to Barack Obama, Democrats, the Left, labor unions and Obama’s mouth pieces … YOU LOST!!!
FAIRNESS MR. PRESIDENT? AMERICA, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD A VACATION … BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA.
President Barack Obama talks of class warfare, the 1% vs. the 99%, and fairness. However, Michelle Obama’s ski trip to Aspen, CO marks the 16th Obama vacation. Just curious America, how many of you have taken 16 vacations in the last three years? President Obama, you like to talk of fairness … is it fair that you and yours take 16 vacations on the tax payers dime when most not only have not taken 16 vacations, many have not even taken 16 days. That is if they are lucky enough to be employed.Granted former President GWB took many vacation days as well’ however, they were mostly “staycations” on his ranch in Crawford, TX.
First lady Michelle Obama’s weekend jaunt to Aspen, Colorado for a President’s Day ski holiday with her daughters Sasha and Malia makes the 16th time members of the first family have gone on extended vacations during their three years in office.
But his have become more controversial because of the costs associated with moving the first family to a public vacation spot, unlike the Bushes to their remote ranch in Crawford, Texas. For example, the Hawaii Reporter said the first family’s 2011 Christmas vacation in Hawaii would exceed $1.5 million.
Critics and even some in his own party say the vacations present a bad image at a time when many Americans are struggling to get by during the recession. According to recent Harris poll, only three in 10 said they plan to take a vacation lasting longer than a week in the next six months, and that number has been dropping during the recession as people worry about the costs of vacations. Other polls have found that less than half of all Americans take all the vacation time they earn because they can’t afford trips.
Check out Obama’s Vacation List HERE. Honestly, how out of touch is Barack and Michelle Obama? Who in their right mind takes an Aspen vacation after already having just been on a 17 day trip to Hawaii that cost taxpayers $4 million. How do these people claim a populist campaign with a straight face? They talk of the evil 1% … if you have not figured it out, Barack and Michelle are the 1%. You might want to remember this lack of empathy in the 2012 Presidential election when casting your vote.
It’s good to be King & Queen … Hope and Change, eh?
