NRO: Is Obama Still President?
Minutemen News ^ | October 30, 2013 | Staff

Posted on 10/30/2013 5:17:55 PM PDT by yoe

We are currently learning whether the United States really needs a president. Barack Obama has become a mere figurehead, who gives speeches few listen to any more, issues threats that scare fewer, and makes promises that almost no one believes he will keep. Yet America continues on, despite the fact that the foreign and domestic policies of Barack Obama are unraveling, in a manner unusual even for star-crossed presidential second terms.

Abroad, American policy in the Middle East is leaderless and in shambles after the Arab Spring — we’ve had the Syrian fiasco and bloodbath, leading from behind in Libya all the way to Benghazi, and the non-coup, non-junta in Egypt. This administration has managed to unite existential Shiite and Sunni enemies in a shared dislike of the United States. While Iran follows the Putin script from Syria, Israel seems ready to preempt its nuclear program, and Obama still mumbles empty “game changers” and “red line” threats of years past.

We have gone from reset with Russia to Putin as the playmaker of the Middle East. The Persian Gulf sheikhdoms are now mostly anti-American. The leaders of Germany and the people of France resent having their private communications tapped by Barack Obama — the constitutional lawyer and champion of universal human rights. Angela Merkel long ago grasped that President Obama would rather fly across the Atlantic to lobby for a Chicago Olympic Games — or tap her phone — than sit through a 20th-anniversary commemoration of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are beginning to see that the U.S. is more a neutral than a friend, as Obama negotiates with Putin about reducing the nuclear umbrella that protects America’s key non-nuclear allies. Perhaps they will soon make the necessary adjustments. China, Brazil, and India care little that Barack Obama still insists he is not George W. Bush, or that he seems to be trying to do to America what they seek to undo in their own countries.

Both Congress and Senate have the responsibility to protect the United States and her citizens from the enemies within. Our military must have guessed that their CC isn't. How many billions of $$$ has this administration squandered on this Socialized Medicine that apparently was never supposed to work so Obama and his fellow Socialists can go straight to Single Payer....which has been the Democratic/Progressive Dream for decades...another word is CONTROL....absolute control over the "private" citizen.

Hussein is — and always was — just a front man for the shadowy cabal of Leftists who snuck him into office.

Is Obama Still President?

Don't know, but he certainly is a pathological liar!

Impeachment has been thrown around by Bill O'Reilly tonight. He asked Marsha Balckburn, as a U.S. citizen and not as a congresscritter, did Obama lie to you? She wouldn't answer! Another worthless RINO!

Obama is on the ropes.
Next year we can impeach him and he knows it.
You can see the fear in his eyes.

Impeachment without the ability to convict is a huge waste of time.

He can be impeached now. Conviction is another story. Our Senate is so Partisan, driven by Mistress Pelosi from the house and her slave in the Senate, Reid.

That "fear" you're seeing is a vacant stare.

What you want to see is the fear in Valerie Jarrett's eyes...

Nixon wasn’t even impeached, let alone convicted.

Zero has never been President in the conventional sense. He is more like an advertising icon or brand that gets around the clock exposure in order to shift the country towards some progressive dream. Or to the rest of America a nightmare.

Sort of like the Red hair girl at Wendy’s. Just far more evil.

There is always more than one way to skin a cat. Obama is feeling the pressure and now is the time to hit him with everything.

Was he ever a real president? Even though he’s a Zer0 that doesn’t mean we don’t need a president. IMO that will become painfully clear in the next few years.

A con-man, and Democrat supporters you’ve been punked, only this time, you lose your money, your freedom.

Next straw, how will hospital employees get paid as everyone is losing their insurance and won’t be able to pay up?

Without a Republican senate majority, it’s a waste of time.
With a Republican senate majority it’s a real gamble.

Nixon resigned. He considered it the best thing to do for the country given the circumstances.

Not a waste of time for two reasons.
1. Impeacment puts Obama’s agenda to a screeching halt as he is forced to spend time on it and sucks away his political klout.
2. Being under pressure will cause that punk to commit further impeachable offenses (cover ups).
