Posted on 05/19/2014 5:18:31 AM PDT by Kaslin
This week President Obama will visit Cooperstown, New York, ostensibly to promote tourism.
President Barack Obama says he's heading to the Baseball Hall of Fame to stress how tourism can lead to good-paying jobs, reports the Associated Press.
But I think that theres a high probability that Obama believes the Baseball Hall of Fame will induct him into their hallowed halls as the greatest baseball player to ever live.
And this would make sense.
The man got a Nobel Peace Prize and he has sown nothing but war. War at home and war abroad.
The man has been declared by his liberal acolytes the greatest and blackest and gayest president to ever live. And whatever else may be said, he certainly isnt the greatest president ever, while Bill Clinton is still blacker than Obama has ever been.
OK, Ill give him that.
But in general it all adds up to a man to whom much has been given, while nothing has been expected.
If there is a steroid for the ego, Obama abuses it.
Best baseball player ever?
Its not the most ridiculous honor ever proposed for Obama, especially given his steroid abuse.
So it doesnt surprise me that Newsweek reports Obama allies are asking the president to appoint a CEO for Obamacare. Nobel Prize, no peace; healthcare reform, no healthcare.
See a pattern?
The recommendation, says Newsweek, in a report due to be released by the Washington-based Center for American Progress think tank, calls for a major shakeup within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which presided over last year's disastrous rollout of the federal market portal, HealthCare.gov.
CEO, czar, whatever: Its all the same thing for a president whose best idea was to write a book so he could exploit his race and so to allow others to intensely peer into the mirror at which Obama never tires gazing.
There is no doubting that this report is a large coming down for Obamacare and for the president.
There is remarkable acrimony behind the scenes by Democrats regarding Obamacare, which they once declared the greatest legislative achievement of the greatest president in the history of the world, black, gay, or shortstop.
And it illustrates the most pressing defect of Obamas presidency and the legacy hell leave behind.
Obamacare isnt even fully implemented and it already stinks. It stunk before it passed the House. It stunk before it passed the Senate. It stunk before they passed it just to see what was in it.
And even allies are now admitting it.
Reform advocates, continues Newsweek, including CAP pressed the same idea on the White House after HealthCare.gov's October crash, the first in a series of setbacks that posed a political challenge for Obama and his Democratic allies. The administration opted instead for a more narrowly defined health technology czar to rescue the site.
And yet still Obamacare stinks.
Abraham Lincoln, a master of logictherefore a Republican not a Democrat has often been credited with this question, which goes directly to the point: How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg?
To which he answered: Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.
Calling Obamacare the Affordable Care Act doesnt make it affordable.
Calling Obamacare healthcare reform doesnt make it good.
Calling Obamacare a success because midterm elections are coming up doesnt mean that it is a success.
It would be like calling Obama Mr. President, which, of course, is ridiculous.
Hes more believable as a baseball player.
And thats the legacy America will have to live with for a long, long time.
Makes sense to me.
This is pure logic.
Looks like another changeup...
Amen Mr. Ransom, Amen!
We have had our little prance in the woods with the petulent child Barack. Now it is time to clean up the mess and fix all the broken toys laying around. And while we are at it let’s make sure those demotwits never elect another president.
The media at one time tried to pass him off as a man. Moochelle has more testosterone than that clown.
Just keep him the hell away from my Tigers.
My guess is that his transexual nanny in Indonesia taught him how to throw.
He has to be the biggest idiot that has ever walked the face of the earth. I thought I hated Hillary, but this idiot is just beyond compare.
He is more likely to get his own line of signature series Mom Jeans.
We could probably do that if we could change the Electoral College into a form where the elected Representative of the House of Representatives, from each district, had to vote in the Electoral College for the President and was bound to vote in the manner his/her constituents had voted for President. If this method, of electing a President, had been in play during 2012, zer0 would have been one termer. We also should be aware the demotwits want a popular vote election process for electing a President. The demotwits are working feverishly to make a popular vote election a reality. The demotwits know this is their only method of maintaining power at the executive level and have made significant progress toward abolishing the Electoral College as is Constitutionally written. The alternative is to continue to fight the demotwits, as you suggest and as is being done, till they (the demotwits) are defeated. May sanity persevere and we know the demotwits have no sanity therefore this fight will be an ongoing process, won by hard work. Since am positive you are familiar with hard work, as Conservatives everywhere are, the outcome will be hard won but won nevertheless. (mho)
everytime I see that photo....I “hear” the lyrics to Billy Jean by Michael Jackson....
Here in Michigan there is considerable support for doing away with our winner take all electoral allotment and going to a system where electoral votes would be awarded according to districts won.
Knowing you have studied the map and the red wave consuming the map I do pray that a modification proportionate to the heart and soul of America may one day be the heart and soul of the Electoral College for America is a Conservative nation and as is know by you, Creek. Liberals lie and only seek to maintain their own power through those lies. Logic and reason, as all know, is not a liberal’s strong suit therefore utilizing logic the massive red of the map tells each of us that Conservatism has taken America thereby creating our witnessing fear for all liberals. The liberals are sensing their plans could slip away from their grasp. May the liberals’ plan slip from their hands and return rightfully to those that are not children, as the liberals are children, and into the hands of the adults. When the plan slips from the liberals’ hands, I will declare a holiday, for me and mine, and dance in the street; for there will be no reason not to dance in joyous celebration.
“Baseball is a game of failure”...not sure where this quote came from, but it seems appropriate for this induction suggestion.
Obama is an opposing team player’s line-drive foul ball in the face of Uncle Sam, sitting in his VIP seat at a home game.
Has he won the Pulitzer yet?
We haven’t read the essays he authored at Columbia and Harvard, (they’re sealed by court order).
So maybe the Pulitzer Committee could issue the prize based upon the merit these essays MIGHT have?
How is he NOT gay?
He throws much better when he wears his dress.
Slightly off topic, but I saw First Ballot Hall of Famer, Rod Carew, in the parking lot, at my neighborhood shopping center, yesterday. I said “Hello”, and we talked for about 20 minutes. He could not have been a nicer guy.
No wonder he got the Nobel Peace Prize. It has THREE NAKED MEN on it!
Supposedly he is a White Sox fan. I wonder if he could name even one player on the team.

He can't even name the...
If the MI legislature is really considering this, may I make the following suggestion:
Allocate one electoral vote (EV) for each congressional district (CD) won, and have the two remaining EVs allocated in the following way: (i) one for the candidate with the highest statewide vote percentage, and (ii) one for the candidate who carried the most CDs (and in case two or more candidates carry the same number of CDs, to the candidate with the highest statewide vote percentage among the candidates who tied in CDs carried).
This would be preferable to the allocation system used in NE and ME, where the candidate that wins statewide automatically gets the two extra EVs, so it would allow the Republican to win an extra EV is he or she carries more CDs than the Democrat. However, it still leaves one EV that would be allocated to the statewide winner, thus making it less likely that a creative judge could strike down such a system.
When PA considered adopting a similar allocation system in 2011 or so (albeit with the two extra EVs given to the statewide winner), I opposed such unilateral action, since I thought that the GOP nominee (who was unknown at that point) might need all of PA’s 20 EVs to get to 270. What I avidly favored was for several states with GOP legislatures and governors but that had voted for Obama in 2008 to switch, en bloc, to a CD allocation of EVs, since it would avoid the heartbreak of the Republican, say, carrying FL, OH and PA but failing to get to 270 because he didn’t make up the lost EVs from Democrat CDs in those three states by winning EVs in VA, MI and WI. Had each of FL, OH, PA, VA, MI and WI (all of which had GOP legislatures and governors in 2011 and 2012) adopted an EV-allocation system like the one I described above, Romney would have defeated Obama in the Electoral College by a 274-264 margin even though Obama carried all six of those states. Unfortunately, we can’t get all six of those states to amend their laws prior to 2016 because the Democrats captured the VA governorship and control the state senate through the Lt. Gov.’s vote, but that shouldn’t stop states that are unlikely to vote Republican in a presidential election in which their EVs could be decisive (MI and WI come to mind, and hopefully MN and IA also would be possibilities after this November’s elections) to approve such changes unilaterally.
So I would support MI (and WI) making such change in the allocation of EVs, and maybe OH and PA if they do so in tandem; we still would need to carry FL to win, but that would place us in much stronger shape than if we needed to carry FL *and* OH *and* PA.
Best president / ballplayer ever....
A LEFTY too!
Hilarious article premise, Obama is just as deserving of HOF consideration as he was of that Nobel Prize in the field of not being George Bush. The justification? Easy, his first pitch wasn’t quite as bad as Carly Rae Jepsen’s.
Anyway, yes MI should change to the ME/NE system, modified with your suggestion, man up and do it Michigan. I was pissed when PA let themselves be scared of out doing it.
Remember the Black guy from “The Shield”?
Apparently he bust a cap in his wife.
Was he having a flashback? There’s no Vic Mackey to clean this up.
The visit to Cooperstown is just the excuse for having the taxpayers pay the expenses for going to a fundraiser (or two, or three, or...)
