Obama was practically an orphan after he mom and dad dumped him - and I am afraid of Obama.

Jeff Dobbs

Obama's self-awareness is staggering.

"We are not well served when, in response to a terrorist attack mass shooting, we descend into fear and panic," he said. "We don't make good decisions if its based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks."

In his shell. Ryan was last seen saying Obama gets no free lunch next spending bill. tbd.

"We don't make good decisions if its based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks."

Maybe he hasn't seen the overnight news from Paris - according to cell phones retrieved another huge killing spree was just narrowly avoided. He is 180 degrees out of step with what's going on and seemingly proud of it!

I held out as long as I could, narc:

Obama defended the screening for Syrian refugees as the "most rigorous process conceivable," hours after White House officials held a conference call with governors to reassure them about the security procedures for refugees.

I'd like to think Comey thumbing his nose at Barry is a good sign for how he'll handle the Hillary investigation.

The casual, matter-of-fact, unthinking lying is the heart of the problem. Leftists practice their own form of taqqiya.

Just as taqqiya rules out the concept of "good muslim," whatever we call the left's version does the same for every leftist piece of filth wasting my oxygen.

There is no way to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Ig, from the previous thread:But why should wholly private institutions be sunshiny to anyone not part of that private institution?

Try recasting the question this way: But why should wholly private institutions those susceptible to criminal enterprise be sunshiny to anyone not part of that private institution?

In a country of laws, no one, president or commoner, should be exempt from them.

Miss Marple 2

sbw,

My personal opinion is that all non-profits should have to release donor lists, just like political parties have to do. If someone can make the case for religious institutions being exmpt through the 1st amendment, I would accept that.

But Sierra Club, CAIR, ACLU, etc. all should have to disclose who donates.

Maybe but I don't trust inspector dreyfus, back last winter, he was fagellating himself like Paul bettany over Hoover's excesses.

How about disclosing foreign donors? They are outside the Constitution and are not subject to domestic harassment.

Beasts brought this up on the last thread.

How many Syrian refugees will be attending Sidwell Friends school?

Look up family info on Dem. politicians (neighborhoods, schools, vacation areas,...)& see how Syrian refugees will be impacting their lives.

Exactly, Peter; these times call for leadership but brave McTurtle has his tiny head drawn up into his shell. This is a perfect time for Eddie Munster to get salvation from that shrinking violet act he pulled against the dumbest retard to crawl out of Scranton so we shall see if he's up to the task.

My governor--Pat McCory--just schooled the most disrespectful president ever as to why the Governors have major, valid concerns about the resettlement of "Syrian" refugees on NPR.

Governor McCory used terms a fifth grader could understand and spoke slowly and clearly, so maybe Val Jar can get the message across to President Petulant.

An interesting story in today's WSJ on Europe clamping down on the use of decommissioned weapons. Of course, do not even consider arming your population but rather dearming the terrorists. Looks like the weapons in Charlie Hebdo and Paris on Friday were reactivated from decommissioned status. Fingers point to Slovakia then the Brussels Arms souk.

What corporation isn't "susceptible to criminal enterprise"?
For that matter what individual isn't? After all it isn't the corporation itself doing the criminal enterprising.
We could eliminate the large majority of crime if sunshine were shining into every part of everyone's private life and guilt by association and prior restraint were as passe as innocent until proven guilty and privacy were made by the opening of the window shades.

We already have laws against criminal enterprises and all the rest of the dirty things people do under cover of darkness. But that darkness also keeps our busy body neighbors and the state out of our private lives and private matters.

Calling it sunshine doesn't make every day a sunny day. Taken to its logical end, as the state always does, it sounds a lot more like darkness at noon.

I remember the days when Obama professed to understand the arguments of his opponents and made a periodic effort to engage them. I even remember the days when I actually thought that was his natural tendency. (I am trying to forget them, but Google empowered commenting colleagues probably won't let me.)

We have seen the rage of Obama in the wake of Paris. Well, we saw the rage of W after 9-11. Problem is, Obama's rage is against his domestic opponents, not the people killing people.

It has taken this long (because McCain would have been a powerfully lousy President at a time ill suited for him), but I do finally regret my Obama vote in 2008. The President's third-rate Daily Show routine is a scary thing to contemplate. He has no concept of what he faces. He has no grace to admit that, occasionally, he is wrong. He thinks the law, when it is not his plaything, is something to be defied. And his Mama did not teach him proper manners.

Donald Trump reacted Wednesday morning to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's decision to drop out of the presidential race, calling the Republican governor "a little nasty" but ultimately a "nice guy."

"Well, he was, you know, a little nasty with me, but I think ultimately was very nice and he tried. Everyone's nasty to me because they want to get votes," Trump said Wednesday morning on Fox News. "Look he was in there, he tried very hard. I think he's a nice guy, he was a good man."


http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/18/politics/donald-trump-bobby-jindal-drops-out/index.html

CNN says Trump called Piyush "a little nasty" but they show the actual quote in the next paragraph.

Saying someone was a little nasty to you isn't the same as saying they are a little nasty.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I have to disagree with Wretchard on refugees.
Who cares if among them are some smart, industrious people? There aren't smart, industrious people among the millions here who can't find work? There aren't smart, industrious people from cultures that will reinforce our freedoms rather than weaken them?

And if we want intelligence from the refugees who a week ago were "migrants"; seems like they'd be a lot more useful in situ than over here.

I also have to disagree with Barry; of course we should have a religious test for immigrants.
The simple fact is the vast majority of muslims endorse sharia, which is utterly incompatible with our constitution. Any believing muslim is lying when he takes the oath of citizenship. Why would we want to let in people who lie during the very act of becoming citizens?
I understand why Barry would because he did the same thing when taking the oath of office, but why would the rest of us?

What we have here is exceptional but it is not indestructible. Our ancestors knew this and safeguarded it because, other than the radicals, our basic freedoms were cherished by everyone.
Well, now the radicals control one party and many of our institutions and the rest of us now have to safeguard them from our own neighbors, not just foreign invaders or we're going to lose ther whole shebang.

If a poor uneducated mexican can just stroll into the United States then a terrorist cell backed by a large international network and billions of dollars might not find it that hard.

And if said terrorist can't then he can always franchise the act via the internet.

ISIS want us to adopt a siege mentality,dig a moat around us and live in fear......that's kind of a point of TERRORism.And thanks to Republicans (who shit their pants at the drop of a hat) it worked.

You are all now working for ISIS,you are all now payed employees of the Islamic state and will feature in their up and coming recruitment movie "The West hates you, come join us"

But the scales finally having fallen from your eyes and no longer able to resist the goads can you point me to where Barry ever even slightly sincerely engaged his "enemies" arguments?

His "Drink your Slushy and shut up, you drove the car in the ditch" comments?

"I won"?

His dismissal and anger with Paul Ryan for pointing out exactly what is now happening with Barrycare?

There must be a hundred more...

From matt's link;

"I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric coming out of here in the course of this debate,” Obama said, using an acronym sometimes used for the terrorist group.

I can think of one tool that's more potent at recruiting IS nutjobs.
Unfortunately it doesn't have a switch to turn its non-stop, inanity-spouting mouth off.

Here's another way of thinking about this refugee situation that may appeal to the Conservative heart.Imagine we let these Syrians in and one of them blows up an Airliner or a shopping mall etc...Republicans are on record opposing their admittance and Democrats, headed by Obama pushed and pushed for it.

Obama will go down in history as the worst U.S President in history.

I can't really engage your arguments without spending more time than I have digging some stuff up. Suffice it to say, I believed this Obama existed (it's his 2004 Dem Convention keynote), and I think you know enough of my politics to understand its appeal to me:

Now even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes.

Well, I say to them tonight, there's not a liberal America and a conservative America; there's the United States of America.

We worship an awesome God in the blue states, and we don't like federal agents poking around our libraries in the red states.

We coach little league in the blue states and, yes, we've got some gay friends in the red states.

There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq, and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq.

We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.

What is, well, appalling, in light of Obama's last two days of snark, is that it is almost impossible to believe that our wandering Don Rickels of a President could be capable of these words.

"Not entirely sure I wouldn't rather stay in Syria than be baptized in pig's blood."

I just want to be clear:

I wholeheartedly endorse the DNC and Hillary taking up WeeDavey and Ezra's argument that more dead Americans and Europeans from terrorist attacks is a measure of how well the war against the terrorists is progressing.

I also encourage the Dems to characterize those pointing out that Barry's "strategy" and many wars are a hopeless catastrophe and his unwillingness to acknowledge same is the mark of an infantile, unhinged mind are providing recruitment to the terrorists.

Using the victims of terrorism as evidence of success and having your standard bearer putting his hand in his coat like Napoleon while saying crazy things is bound to win the Dems lots of votes.

It has taken this long [. . .] but I do finally regret my Obama vote in 2008.

Perhaps extrapolating too much from that latter quote, it appears a good part of the charm for him was things he said. And now the final straw is other things he said. Not to long-distance amateur psychoanalyze, but do you think that's a rational way of evaluating either prospective or past job performance?

Seems to me there's little difficulty in looking at candidate Obama's record, or his record as president, and determining he's unsuitable. Of course, if you're sifting through a lot of blather, that makes it more difficult . . . but seven years?

Well this thread is dead, but I will answer here.

In 2008, the race was between (i) a senator with no executive experience, a number of viewpoints I found repellent, and a manner that suggested Jack Nicholson on a bad day and (ii) a senator with no executive experience, less viewpoints I found repellent, and maybe, and ability to get us to something resembling post-racial. I made my choice. I regret it now, but it wasn't flighty.

You note that what seems to have got me is yet more rhetoric. No, not really. I have long thought that Obama was a pretty abysmal President. McCain would have been an abysmal President, too. But he never would have gone to a foreign country, after an act of war, mumbled some mealy mouthed wimpy condemnation of ISIS, and then used the opportunity to rip, rip, rip the opposition.

Hence the regret. But the decision to go extra-Consitutional in late 2014 is as much in my mind as anything else.
