President Barack Obama says disquiet and a sense of frustration in the country are fueling cynicism about government that could hurt Democratic turnout in the November elections.

In a sober political assessment, Obama tells Democratic donors he feels a sense of urgency about the election and needs the Senate to remain Democratic. Republicans have a chance to win control of the Senate this year.

The president says that when Democrats get discouraged, they don’t vote. …

"Disquiet and a sense of frustration"? Why, what could we possibly be disquieted and frustrated about? A "transformative" government that has twisted every American value into its evil twin? A constant drumming of bitter race-baiting? Open warfare against unborn babies and the ability of the citizens to defend themselves? A foreign policy that has betrayed and alienated our loyal allies and placed the Middle East into a whirligig of violence and murder? Could we be disquieted by that?

Widespread corruption within the "Justice" department that has led to the murder of Mexican nationals as well as our own border patrol agents? Crony capitalism that has enriched Democrat party donors? A President for whom leisure on the scale of an Ottoman Prince appears to be more important than the welfare of his country? Does this frustrate us?

Are we bothered by the replacement of God by a sordid and disgusting worship of celebrity? Are we disquieted by the open and deliberate elevation of every form of perversion as the "new normal" and our own objections relegated to the status of hatred and bigotry? Possibly so. Possibly so to all of that.

This is not the time for gentle bipartisanship that has always been turned against us. It is a time for rage. It is a time for uncompromising rejection of healers who have turned out to be monsters. It is unlikely to cease in November. Time for pushback and a little respect, earned but not granted, and so now demanded.

Was the bloody Behghazi Massacre a State Department approved massacre, or just a well-planned end result of a tightly controlled Foreign Policy that leads from behind?

Trey Gowdy needs to get to the bottom of this, - - - or does he?

Maybe former prosecutor Gowdy needs to get to the TOP of this?

Ponder this:

“- - - - get to the bottom of - - - -”

For strict adherence to The HE-WHO Transparency Executive Order, it must be fully disclosed that this is a phrase-quote taken directly from the Obama Community Organizer’s Handbook, commonly known as OCOH.

OCOH clearly lists a partial list of the desired effects of “getting to the bottom” of a useful crisis as follows:

* Attention will be directed away from HE-WHO chose which crisis-of-the-day was worthy of his arrogant attention, usually requiring a teleprompter set, but often just the simple use of a pen or a phone;

* Before those at the bottom are partially found out, they must receive a severe tongue-lashing by HE-WHO, using all manner of vile accusations, including, but not limited to, the most hated of all phrases: making BONEHEADED Decisions;

* Before the crisis is incompletely resolved, Executive Orders must be put in place by HE-WHO himself “TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!”

* Additional inquiry into this phony crisis by The Enemies of Obamanation, must be clearly labeled as “political football,” or in persistent cases the ultimate PC Label White Guilt/Shame Word: “Racists.”

No Barky, it’s LYING politicians, constantly telling us it’s raining while they’re pissing down our backs is what’s fueling cynicism with politics!

Disquiet breeds cynicism? What sort of blather is this? Does he work at stringing inane thoughts together or just pop off non-sequiturs like rabbits?

This isn't Mao’’s China.
