Zogby Report Card: Obama is an 'ogre of a hellish national security state'
The Washington Examiner's Washington Secrets ^ | May 3, 2014 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 05/03/2014 6:32:06 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama is no longer seen as an agent of change, but the boss of an oppressive national security state.

"Not only did the president not get a triumph from his Asia trip, but he hit a wall of bad news. First quarter economic growth is worse than expected, just 0.1 percent.

"Next, the administration admits that its Middle East efforts is on life support. And the Europeans haven't jumped on board with another round of sanctions against Russia.

“Mr. Obama is no longer seen as the transformational symbol of hope and change, but more as an ogre of a hellish national security state. A new round of Benghazi emails reappears like a nasty zit. Lousy week."

Grade — F

C’mon Zogby, give it to us straight. Stop sugar coating the narrative. Global security is being guided by gay lover van drivers who make Craig Livingstone look like Henry Kissinger.

And this is before the common low information voters even have a clue of the economic and policy disasters that have been hidden and obfuscated, but appear ready to burst in 2015.

I happen to believe that no tyrant deserves a natural death. Hitler did himself. Mussolini and his wife got theirs in public hanging from lampposts. The Romanian dictator and his wife got the payback of the citizens when dear leader Chochescu and his wife got abrupt payback. That all seems good.

What makes me sad is that Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Chavez, etc died natural deaths. In Cambodia it was debated that prosecuting Pol Pot was a waste of time since he was so old. I say, execute him even if he is terminally ill to send a message. Be an evil tyrant and people will come after you even if you only have one minute left. That is as it should be.

I can’t wait til the divorce when Moochie admits she’s been a beard for years and that Obummer is really gay. That plus his following directions fom Soros and all the foreign payoffs from our enemies, the fake birth certificate and social security number, etc...

Actually, it was Mussolini's girlfriend Clara Petacci, not his wife.

And they weren't hanged from lampposts. They were shot by the partisani, and their bodies were hung up by the feet in a gas station in Milan.

My dad got pictures.

But we can't find the negatives.

Generally, however, I agree that "sic semper tyrannis" is a good outcome for these murderers of millions.

OK, I stand corrected for the details, but the outcome and public retribution for their horrors is what
I wanted to applaud. Thank you for the update. The thought makes me smile and should make tyrants shiver in fear.

Small wonder, with Russia in their face, and Obama has their backs...

well...

Would you believe, he's admiring their backs?....

Hmm...

How about he's pulling back?

Missed it by that much. (/Maxwell Smart)

I’m beginning to think Obama does things just because he can. Then he destroys or discards people once they’ve served their purpose. That’s when he takes time from destroying people or groups of people whom he doesn’t like or don’t go along with him.

From the link:

“Everywhere you look, the Clintons rule.”

“Bill popped up on the front page of The Times giving a speech at his alma mater, Georgetown University, in which he defended his economic policies and chastised the press for its tendency to create a “storyline” that doesn’t match reality. (Sort of like the storyline the Clintons created about Monica Lewinsky being a delusional stalker.) “

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3151929/posts

***************************************************************

When Dowd says, “Sort of like the storyline the Clintons created about Monica Lewinsky being a delusional stalker.” It's a subtle but massive hit on Hillary - a person who will run as ‘woman’... her main accomplishment - ‘female who married politically well’. Democrat's keep it simple...

Hillary can't afford to be seen as a manipulative scheming harridan. Hillary's lies about Monica and her mother - creating a story that both were mentally ill - and that Bill was ‘ministering’ to the poor woman-child - Monica... was horrible. Two of the most powerful people in the world using the force of their power to lie against a 19 year old fool and her mother. Not pretty. Not feminist... not acceptable for a person running for President as 'woman'.

Absolutely. I agree with your conclusion. Just wanted to make sure you had the facts correct.
