Kirsten Powers SLAMS Obama, says hes very disengaged and not stepping up to handle VA crisis
The Right Scoop ^ | 05-20-2014

Posted on 05/20/2014 6:41:54 PM PDT by Kevin in California

Kirsten Powers says that she’s extremely disappointed in Obama, especially when it comes to his handling of the Obamacare website and the VA. She emphasizes, with respect to the VA, that it’s veteran’s lives we’re talking about and Obama appears very disengaged on it.

With respect to the Obamacare website, she says Obama didn’t even seem interested in whether the website for his signature achievement was working. She adds if Obama isn’t interested in his signature achievement, he’s not interested in anything.

Every now and then, even she gets it.

Oh, and on a side note, she is kinda cute even though she's a lib.

Kirsten has been very wishy washy about the VA scandal and Obama, until, evidently, tonight on O’Blowhard’s show.

For being a born again Christian, she is taking a very long time to shed her liberal views.

But she is heading in the right direction.

Kirsten can sometimes see the light, but other times she is stuck on stupid..she wants a single payer health care system..has said repeatedly that Obamacare doesn’t go far enough..says the best health care is in France..OK then, next time she gets sick she can put her ass on a plane and fly to France

No need for Obama to be ‘engaged’ when he can go play hoops and tee off.

Obama never wanted to DO the job of the president, he just wanted to be the president. He figured that his mere presence in the WH would be enough to solve any problem.

I’ll confess that I have grown impatient with her lately.

She is like a female Juan Williams at times, and I thought she was smarter than that.

She has impractical, but thoroughly Democrat, views many times that do not pass the consistency test.

I keep waiting for the light bulb to go off over her head.

And that is very rare for a liberal. I believe she'll come over to the good side once she grows up a little more.

Sometimes when she talks Im like FINALLY she sees it..but when she brings up single payer then I’m like damn, there goes any hope Ive had for her..Juan Williams wife was recently robbed, she told him “I wish I had a gun” will Juan change his mind about guns, who knows but I doubt it, once liberalism is imbedded in the brain its hard to get out

What’s not to like about a government run healthcare system with secret lists and people dying who have outlived their usefulness, Kirsten? It’s a microcosm of the Unaffordable, UNaccountable, UNcaring Act.

He is just the figurehead. He is filler. The heavy lifting — fundamentally changing America — is taking place behind the scenes by the various Czars.

Obama seems more than content with getting to play golf on exclusive courses frequently.

Powers, as far as I know, was attending the hip Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC. For NYC yuppies, the doctrine is counter-culture, yet still falls far short of true Biblical doctrine.

Having a very hard time trying to figure out Powers. She can seem to be so left wing and spouting the right (whoops left) points that I despise her. Then she comes along and makes some actual sense at times. She can at times become so believable that it scares me - even as left as she is.

Have to think that just maybe she actually has a conscience and at times has to tell the truth regardless of her talking points...that is a good thing. Maybe that is why FOX actually hired her - she is semi-truthful, good enough for FOX.

Keep in mind her JOB on FNC is to present the liberal viewpoint.

If she starts espousing reasonableness, she'll just be another run-of-the-mill gorgeous Fox female, like Megyn, Martha, Gretchen, et al.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

First, I like her a lot. As to why she is reasonable for a lib. She is a lib on Fox. Like all the RINOs who appear on CNN.

Ha, I surely hope that she is not just a liberal on FOX but actually says what she thinks both Conservative and Liberal. If you want otherwise, then you need to tune into MSNBC. I am assuming that she is telling the “truth” when she speaks and I care not whether she is a liberal or not - she is cast as such and so I know what to expect. When she does not conform to her label, then I am not only aghast but can thank her for her honesty. To liberals, honesty is usually sticking to the talking points.

I listened to this interview and I respectfully dissent. He is not disengaged, his agenda is anti-middle-class, anti-free enterprise and anti-American, and he knows exactly what he's doing. That is, he is systematically undoing the American Revolution and the work and sacrifice of over two centuries of patriots.

I just hope that when 20 January 2017 arrives, he relinquishes power. I am not optimistic.

My prayer is that she is continually troubled by the truth and that her faith force her to see and speak truth.

I know that will be awful for the GOP-E, but it’ll be even worse for the democrats.

Surprised she didn’t vote for O in the last election - in fact, she said she didn’t like either choice and didn’t want to stand in a long line just to vote for somebody who was going to lose - Romney maybe?.......

Bo doesn’t care about the military. Stand down orders in Benghazi, the helicopter full of SEALS that crashed under suspicious circumstance right after the Bin Laden raid which he told everyone who killed him. Work place violence for a terror attack, firing of generals, weakening the military, gaying up the military, soldier in jail in Mexico, the list goes on. All the concern he and the Mooch pretend to show for our vets and military is fake as hell. Especially coming from her.

“For being a born again Christian, she is taking a very long time to shed her liberal views.”

I heard her tell someone on FNC that she was basically an atheist and then she met a Christian guy and he and his faith changed her life. Now he's gone and she is still committed to Christianity. I have been watching her metamorphosis on TV. It must be gut-wrenching to realize you've been on the wrong side all your life, Letting go will take time.

“More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of”.

A worthy prayer, that she sees more of the light.

I hope she will become a formidable force for good on our side—she certainly has the potential to do so.

He doesn’t handle ANY crisis and is POTUS in title only.

He needs to be removed and NOW! Take him out of the White House, dragged by the feet kicking and screaming if necessary but remove him PERIOD.
