  • Feckless Obama embarrasses the nation

    NY POST ^ | 9/11/13 | JOHN PODHERETZ
    (August) polls showed 3/5's of Americans opposed to military action..... and growing by the minute. This led Obama's secretary of state to assure everyone that whatever the US did would be “unbelievably small,” even as he compared Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to Hitler. Whip counts suggested the House would vote the measure down .....and indications the president could not even get 50 votes in the Senate, controlled by Obama's own party. And so a roundelay that began with Obama announcing his decision to launch a military strike at a time of his choosing suddenly turned into the president and his...

    Urging that “we break free of the archaic notions of our nation's so-called 'Founding Fathers,'” President Barack Obama launched his second term with a stirring call to “update our concepts to fit our modern circumstances.” The President maintained that “the Founders' original idea that 'liberty' means freedom from government abuses and usurpations has no relevance today. Our government does not usurp our rights. The people elect their rulers and expect them to create the kind of rights appropriate to the world we live in now.” “How much liberty does a person have if he lacks the will or ability to...

    American Spectator ^ | 1.22.13 | John R. Guardiano
    In his second inaugural address, Obama makes clear that it’s fight night in America. snip Indeed, Obama’s second inaugural address was a liberal wet dream: It pressed all of the Left’s erogenous zones: • Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security? Obama vowed not to change or reform them — even though they are driving us toward financial insolvency, and even though they provide workers with a relatively lousy return on their investment. • “Climate change”? It is real, and it must be addressed — now! • “Sustainable (read: green) energy”? “America cannot resist this transition. We must lead it” — now!...

    If you did not already know that the President has no grasp of history, no knowledge of what he is saying, this should help confirm it. According to the transcript released by the White House, President Obama channeled Neville Chamberlain, using the phrase "peace in our time" to tout his reelection. The President explained (emphasis mine): We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. And we must be a source of hope to the poor,...
  • Chris Matthews: Obama Second Inaugural Akin to Gettysburg Address

    The National Review ^ | January 21, 2013 | Eliana Johnson
    Barack Obama is perhaps the only modern president who has had the burden of swatting away comparisons between his own soaring rhetoric and that of our 16th president. You may recall that, in the wake of the Newtown massacre, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter David Maraniss gushed over the president’s remarks, writing, “People will long remember what Barack Obama said in Newtown,” and calling the speech “[Obama's] Gettysburg address.” Today, thanks to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, it took less than five minutes for the comparison to be drawn between President Obama’s second inaugural address and, well, all manner of things Lincoln. “It reminds...

    After speech, Obama feels good President Obama left Tucson, Ariz., late Wednesday feeling good about the speech he gave memorializing the victims of Saturday’s deadly shooting there, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said. “This was something he’d focused on and thought about, as I think all of us have, in different aspects of our lives and how much he wanted to largely discuss I think the characteristic of empathy and thinking about how we can – how our lives can be better and the examples of what some of those that lost their lives in this accident can teach...

    Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | December 10, 2009 | Brian
    Here is video of a short part of President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, which he delivered in Oslo, Norway today. In this clip, Obama defended the necessity of war at times, and even came right out and said "a non-violent movement could not have halted Hitler's armies." President Obama should be commended for making the case for "just war" in front of a European audience that may have been shocked (as shocked as we are) to hear him make that case, and even defend the role of the United States in underpinning post- World War II stability with...

    Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | December 10, 2009 | Brian
    Here is video of President Obama's during his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech today in Oslo, Norway. In this clip, Obama can't resist insinuating that the United States did not "follow the rules of the road" ourselves after 9/11 in taking military action against Iraq. He never mentioned Iraq explicitly, but the clear insinuation was there. He also declared what could be seen as the "Obama Doctrine." In stating his view on use of force, he made the statement "American cannot act alone." Now, what I hope he means is that it will be difficult for America to succeed if...

    The American Thinker ^ | September 23, 2009 | Nancy Thorner
    President Obama's first address to the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, Sept. 23, can only be described as a renunication of American exceptionalism. Obama essentially gave up his nation in favor of being leader of the world when he told world leaders: "No world order that elevates one nation or groups of people over another will succeed." In Obama's eyes the U.S. is tarnished, stained, immoral, and unjust, with a flawed Constitution, and no better than any other nation. It saddens me that Obama does not recognize the greatness of this nation. It isn't that our DNA is differ. It...

    Everyone marvels at Barack Obama's rhetorical prowess. But don't be overly bedazzled. With these 13 easy steps, you, too, can give a Barack Obama speech. 1) Create a false center. In his speech to a joint session of Congress, Obama positioned himself between the Left's calling for a single-payer system and the Right's agitating to end employer-based health insurance. Presto - he's the very definition of a centrist. Anyone advocating almost any position can benefit from the same insta-centrism. 2) Scorn ideology. Obama warned against "the usual Washington ideological battles." Message: He has no philosophical commitments himself. He's pushing a...

    Wednesday night Obama stated that the $500 billion he wants to take from Medicare will NOT result in any reduction in Medicare benefits. This is an out-and-out lie and I’ll prove it. I am a business systems analyst for the largest health claim processor in the country, and the third largest data warehouse in the world. My job is to ensure that our computer systems meet the business’ needs, thus I've have six years' experience in the regulatory, technical and business aspects of health insurance.

    There was a moment of supreme truth during Obama's speech Wednesday night, lamentably for Obama, it rolled off the tongue of the very charismatic Rep. Joe Wilson as he interrupted Obama, mid-lie, with the utterance, "You lie!!" The catalyst that apparently ignited Joe Wilson's enthusiastic interjection was Obama's deceptive statement that illegal immigrants would not be covered under his universal health care program. Joe Wilson, apparently temporarily possessed by the Holy Ghost of honesty, was left no choice other than to attempt to cast out the demonic spirit of misstatement that had set up shop in Obama's vocal chords.

    Townhall.com ^ | september 10, 2009 | Hugh Hewitt
    President Obama's very big, incredibly important, game changing speech-to-end-all-speeches on health care cam across as panicky, too high pitched, and schoolyard bullyish. The president's theme was obvious early on: Nothing that was said against his plan in August had merit and certainly nothing that came up at the townhalls was legitimate. "Misinformation," "bogus claims," "scare tactics," "such a charge would be laughable,' "it is a lie plain and simple" --welcome to the civil discourse of the hope and change era. The speech really ought not to have gone on as long as it did. The short form: There is nothing...

    Joe Wilson speaks for me. In the chamber dedicated to the voice of the people, the voice of the people was heard. In the face of deception, in a flash of discourtesy, truth was spoken. “You lie!” Joe Wilson blurted, taking the words out of the mouths of millions of Americans watching at home. It was an observation both jarring and true. In point of fact the president was lying, he was engaging in deception, and out of 435 representatives of the people, just one had the instinctive impulse to say so. Joe Wilson speaks for me. Society’s worship of...

    While Rep. Joe Wilson has been condemned for calling Obama a liar, he performed a service because even the over-fawning media that have been ignoring the contradictions in the President's speeches are suddenly taking notice, many of them for the first time. Now there is more "fact checking" on statements made by Obama who tries to cast himself in the role of truth-teller, combating “bogus claims” and “misinformation” about his big government health care plan. “If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out,” Obama warned his critics.

    On national television, President Barack Obama contended this week that his plan to overhaul the country's health care system wouldn't spend a single federal dime on undocumented immigrants.As he spoke, a Republican congressman called the president a liar - once again bringing the incendiary issue of illegal immigration to the forefront of the national debate on health care.While some say undocumented immigrants are scapegoats in an already heated debate, others say they are part of a bigger problem about how to handle a national health care crisis to control medical costs. In a climate of economic trouble and rising insurance...
