D.C. Turns On Obama
Politico ^ | 5/14/13 9:10 PM EDT | Jim Vandehei And Mike Allen

Posted on 05/15/2013 4:35:12 AM PDT by Biggirl

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.

>> Is the DC Beltway turning against Obama?

We can pray so.

That place (D. C.) is such a hall of distorted mirrors that it’s hard to separate what is real from what is merely gamesmanship on the part of RINOs, ‘rats, and the press.

They just ripped obama apart on Morning Joe and Tingle Matthews led the charge. They said obama surrounded himself with adoring followers who have basically let him get away with not doing his job. They said a president should know what’s going on in his admin. and not wait to get his info from the news.

They aided this fool in not doing his job. They are the adoring followers. We knew obama was useless years ago, but it was fun watching them all sit there with the “deer in headlights” look on their faces.

I’m getting my popcorn ready. This is getting interesting.

The leftwing organizations are still striving their rotten hearts out. This is from JCPA:

Please take a moment to thank the “Gang of Eight” - Senators Schumer (D-NY), McCain (R-AZ), Durbin (D-IL), Graham (R-SC), Menendez (D-NJ), Rubio (R-FL), Bennet (D-CO), and Flake (R-AZ) - for reaching a bipartisan compromise on fixing our nation’s broken immigration system. The recently introduced bill offers a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, modernizes the immigration system, strengthens our economy, protects families, treats American and immigrant workers fairly, and begins to address the broken refugee and asylum systems.

This was surely no easy feat, and the fight is far from over. But, in the meantime, take a moment to say THANK YOU for their role in helping us get to this historic moment and urge them to protect this bill throughout the markup process.

NOTE: If you are not represented by one of these eight senators, you will be prompted to inform your senators that you support the bill.

Take Action

For more information and regular updates on the bill, check out the blog at We Were Strangers Too.

Maybe a certain Sens. Cruz or Paul can be contacted to talk to those “gang of 8” members.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I don’t know what they expect, but I know what to expect.

Obama is about to hit the mattresses Chicago thug style.You will hear little from him as he wages internecine political warfare against his enemies.

What we are about to see if we ever get a good look behind ths scenes is Obama making his final leap from a publicly soft nationalist socialism into out right fascism.

The press had better get ready to tell the country the bitter truth.

Good read:

I’ve always thought that until the enemedia was a target of the Obamathugs, they’d keep drinking the Kool-Aid. Well, having your phone records secretly collected & reviewed by the DOJ is enough to give anybody the cold chills ... plus the IRS stuff on top of that (the enemedia has to deal with the IRS on a personal level, too). The Obamathugs have finally overreached in a way that is a little too “up close & personal” for the enemedia .... and they don’t like it.

Here’s an idea: double-cross the AP...yes, the same ignorant dolts who helped you get elected and have been propping up your lame administration since day one. Obama is a moron.

Lest we forget, it wasn’t Obama alone that brought us Obamacare - democRATS, behind closed doors and under the cover of darkness forced this monstrosity through against the will of the vast majority of the people. Most voted for it without even reading it.

We have more than one enemy in this nation. Our work is cut out for us!

Call me a sceptic, but could they be doing this just to “look” fair?

..until we find out who and what was the subject of the secret meeting at the WH last week with the media, I’m skeptical.Wag the dog?.....is this a headline to take the heat off of Benghazi? Was and is the media playing a bigger part in the coverup? Until the media starts to really “cover” Benghazi (without excuses)and starts to uncover Hilda’s lies, I’m very skeptical

-——This White House’s instinctive petulance, arrogance and defensiveness ———

That pretty well covers it.

That from Politico

It will be hard to revert to kissing ass after that piece

You would have a much better chance of converting a radical Muslim Jihadi into becoming Christian than to convert a liberal/democrat reporter into becoming a fair reporter . Reporters are socialists/communists and the most rabidly faithful ones too:It’s why they become reporters to spread their false religion of socialism.It’s their main purpose in life to change the world not to report news but to cherry pick events that advance their socialist agenda and make that news to misinform people

I will believe it when I see it. When they call for real answers to Benghazi we will know. Who ordered the Stand Down?

Pray for America to Wake Up

So, they, basically, admitted that Obama is a low information president. That, ironically, seems appropriate, since he was elected by low information voters.

The media has taken a backseat since 2008, and they are pretty tired of it. They love power as much as any president and will take advantage of any opportunity to seize it. This is one of those opportunities.

Obama has been working for Obama since day 1. The rest of the Dem factions are feeling left out. Nothing they do will damage Dem control, they just want to oust the Chicago faction and make the looting a bit more even handed.

The key to understanding Obamaspeak is to understand that Obama is self-delusional.

Obama truly believes that reality can be created just by him saying so.

I call these statements Obamalies.

Hence, when Obama wants something to be true, all he has to do is say the words and reality will be created around them.

In this manner Obama is capable of protecting himself from REALITY that you and I recognize, but is unrecognizable to Obama.

Monday at his presser, Obama shed a rare tear as he momentarily recognized that his reality was not our REALITY.

US President Valerie Jarrett makes sure that Obama always reads from her scripted teleprompter, or sticks to her scripted talking points.

Thus, minimizing Obama’s self-delusional, private outbursts of the warped reality that only Obama knows - - - .

_________

In the failed world of Communism, all functions of a Society are controlled by a Central Government.

Our Central Federal Government has been easily taken over by Obama to the gleeful cheers of MSNBC and others in the Liberal Agenda Media.

This is as good a time as any to take note of those who have willingly enabled the blatant Communist ideas and programs of Obama to take hold in our Central Federal Government.

It is also a good time to take note of the many dictatorial powers that our sorry US Congress has granted over many decades to the Administration Branch and related Bureaus of our Central Federal Government.

Just to balance our income with our spending, the Central Federal Government must reduce spending by 40 percent.

The longer we wait to “cut our way to prosperity” and repeal and abolish Federal Regulations, the greater our financial debt and less Liberty we will have.

For example, if Central Federal Government Regulations were reduced by 40 percent, our Society would be 40 percent further removed from control by the Central Federal Government.

Currently, there are 3 major Impeachable Scandals that our sorry RINOs could use to remove Obama from our Central, semi-Communist, Federal Government.

My question is: “Do our sorry Congressional RINOs have the POLITICAL MOTIVATION to Impeach and Remove B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of Indonesia?”

______________

Obama always exposes his fear by accusing others of what he is doing to them.

Obama knows that that which will undo him is what he should fear the most.

As a smokescreen defense he accuses others of what he is doing, and hopes to put them on defense so that he can continue doing to them what he fears that they will do to him.

For example, we should politicize, demonstrate strong political motivation, speak and behave in the most un-PC manner, bicker, argue, unseal his flunking University grades, place all his staff under oath, place Obama under oath and IMEACH and REMOVE Obama and his Commie pals.

The responsibility of an opposition party is to provide a check and a balance on the other political party.

Hence, it is time for Republicans to shed their sorry RINO skins and have a good old-fashioned, rip-roaring, verbal thrashing of the tyrannical Obamanation.

It's also relatively harmless now, since Obama is in power for the full either years. They may be hoping to regain some of their lost credibility, so they can be influential when the newly "objective" media go all-in for Hillary in 2016.

Referring to the press, they are as harmless as a cottonmouth moccasin under a log in the swamp.

I meant that honest reporting wouldn’t do anywhere near as much damage to socialist “progress” now, after the 2012 elections as it would have done before that election.
