Not much of a “strategy”. Of course Obama would not be blamed for refusing to negotiate...because Jarrett knew the media would have his back every step of the way.
Obama’s definition of negotiation is to say to the Republicans “You must agree to the demands and wants of myself and the Democrats first and then we will come to the table.”
The senate seems to be going along with him. There is a short clip here of Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst reflecting the same sentiment but from a different approach.
The Mark Levin rewind is here. His monologue and the floor speech by Tom McClintock is in the first hour.
McClintock's comments are more forceful when heard, but I'm linking the FULL TEXT HERE.
A preponderance of posts both prior and subsequent to mine bears out PRECISELY what I was referring to in my statement. Taking the heat and blame off Obama, he is referred to in posts above as stupid, along for the ride, his own lightning rod, a puppet, a performing monkey, a cardboard cutout, a wind-up toy, an amateur, a tool who will act as ordered and so on ad infinitum.
At the same time, Jarrett is described as the brains, a control freak, a shot-caller, pure evil, Rasputin, the real president, a mastermind, and so on.
While each of these two personages may be all of the above, the upshot is that once again Barry slips out of the ties which bind him to his regime's devastating policies and his own personal machinations. Everyone, particularly Jarrett, is to blame but he.
Hitler's advisors, right-hand men and confidants were evil....and we rightfully lump him with them but we hold him PRIMARILY responsible for the horrors of his regime because he was "The Won", as is Obama.
Obama's thugs, advisors, right-hand woman, confidants and the shadowy four dozen or more unelected "czars" that do his bidding behind and beyond any scrutiny are also evil.....but Obama must be lumped into that evil as the PRIMARY cause of the evil, not Jarrett or any other underling.
Instead, at least on this thread, Jarrett plus unnamed persons and mysterious cabals are the problem, leaving the poor, naive, unsophisticated, uninterested, lazy, untrained, helpless Obama to once again dance away unscathed.
Obama is dumb like a fox, stumbles with words like a Jimmy Stewart, but, like Stewart, is a consumate actor. To me, he is Public Enemy Number One, notwithstanding equally evil advisors sitting at his right hand.
Remember, if we lose all control in the mid-term election, Obama will still be president and can complete the destruction of this country. Therefore, we must concentrate on HIM and keep pounding away at HIM.
I assure you if I was trying to convert my neighbor and I pounded away at Jarrett, Soros, the virtually unknown czars, the shadowy cabals, I would get only the blankest of stares....and the shortest of short shrifts from a bemused neighbor! While WE understand the influence of Jarrett and, unfortunately, expend great time and energies on her, the man on the street doesn't even know who she is and could care less.
This does not mean we should ignore her or not keep a spotlight on her machinations....but for goodness sake, Obama is the evil at the top, not her.
I see what you are saying, and agree. We having continuously underestimated Obama’s ability to disconnect from the messes he has made and then he uses his perpetual popularity to destroy the country. He is like some families in which there is a favored sibling/child, who although he/she is evil to the core, the parents see no evil and the child is petted and spoiled...until the same child is pushing them over a cliff.
Some of us just do not care for Valerie Jarrett. LOL
Please show me - QUOTE me - where I absolved Odinga of his role in the current troubles. Show me my EXACT words where I said, "It's not his fault". You can't - because I didn't say it.
Odinga's role is not that of the criminal mastermind; he doesn't have the capacity to do it. His role is precisely what YOU yourself said: stumbles with words like a Jimmy Stewart, but, like Stewart, is a consumate actor. That is his role in this: the public face, the recognizable icon, the image for which women swoon and men get tingles. And his reward for a good performance is vacations, fine dining, and the adulation of the masses.
No, I do not absolve Odinga. He is as much a part of this as the rest of the ensemble cast in this drama. If you wish to hold him accountable for every evil in America, that is your perogative. When that glorious day of days arrives, and he IS held accountable, I will be right there beside you eating popcorn and singing Kate Smith songs.
But as an intelligence soldier, the shadows are my realm. And I watch the figures lurking there, and I will not lose them, for they are to be held in judgement as well.
Hillary? Hillary was groomed by them for at least 8 years, probably more, even to the point of having a New York Senate seat given to her during the Bush years while everything else was being set in motion and the known kinks straightened. Sometime between 2000 and probably 2007, Hillary was weighed by her handlers regarding her ability to handle the task they had for her. And was found wanting. Hence ,we got Obama. And to reward her [Hillary], appease her, or whatever term you prefer, she was given the Secretary of State position for a time and then she was to fade from the scene. However, Hillary being Hillary did not fully understand the message and began or letting her disciples make sounds regarding a run for the Democrat Party nomination for President in 2016. I believe that this was the purpose for the Nichols "revelation". It was to be a shot across Hillary's bow. Whether Hillary understands or cares remains yet to be seen. If not, different methods will be used.
Bill, I believe was warned when he left office to keep a low profile, refrain from public controversy , speak only when given permission and he could live a long happy making a lot of money and spreading as much venereal diseases among the fairer sex as he pleased. Bill has heeded his instructions. Time will tell as to Hillary.
I cannot prove a word of what I just wrote, nor can I prove the sun will rise tomorrow morning, but I believe it will and I believe that is what transpired with Bill and Hillary.
