    To label Obama’s performance as “lazy”, “disinterested”, or “aloof” is dangerous, because it obscures or forgives the real problem...

    The character flaws are there, but the operative problem is his worldview.

    Obama opposes America, he is on the side of our enemies. That’s the problem.

    It’s simple.

    To hold the view that killing a baby is ok, while attempting to simultaneously occupy the moral high ground is a psychological high-wire act...for all liberals.

    Here comes Sarah, who, among other things....HAS THAT CHILD.

    She destabilizes their sense of self-worth, makes them feel dirty. Sarah Palin literally drives them crazy.

    Thus the vitriol.

    On both the immigration and war fronts, Obama is clearly acting reluctantly. Who demanded action?

    We still have no explanation for the abrupt interruption of his Martha’s Vineyard vacation. Did he fly to Washington at the behest of those who hold the puppet strings? He’s literally destroying the Democratic Party, did some of the party leaders participate in this meeting? Was he given an ultimatum at that time?

    His actions and demeanor since that Washington visit seem to indicate something like that happened.

    If that’s true, it’s just a matter of time before he’s told he must contract a mysterious illness that won’t permit him to serve out his term.

    Maxwell sensed that Mills and Sullivan were setting him up to take the fall, his instincts turned out to be correct. So here we have Hillary’s chief of staff and deputy chief, conspiring to destroy evidence.

    They will be subpoenaed by Gowdy, will they plead the fifth? Let’s remember, they are loyal to Hillary and not Obama, and may say that Hillary knew nothing, and their orders came from the White House. Obama gets thrown under Hillary’s (campaign) bus.

    This was at a time when Hillary and Obama were proffering the video as the cause of the uprising, conspiracy at the highest levels.

    This is a big effin’ deal, it’s either Hillary or Obama. Or perhaps we get a two-fer.

    This may sound absurd, but if Obama is perceived as severaly damaging the Democrat party, believe me they will take whatever actions they have to (short of impeachment) to remove him to put out the fire.

    It is not absurd, and the "preference cascade" may already have begun.

    Remember when Obama abruptly flew to Washington during the first days of his Martha's Vineyard vacation? It's still a mystery as to why he did this. Perhaps there was a meeting in which prominent Democrats asked him to a)start to deal with ISIS, and b)back off the immigration amnesty issue?

    He is destoying the party, clearly, maybe it took them this long to realize it. At any rate, if I'm right and such a meeting occurred, then it's just a matter of time before he's asked to contract some mysterious illness that won't permit him to continue in office.

    People are angry about the beheadings, and this “strategy” will come up short in satisfying the emotions.

    It should be clear to all now that Obama favors Islam, which is why he must declare ISIS, “not Islamic”. He literally tied himself in knots with this speech.

    It will be a big political backfire.

    He is destroying the Democratic Party, and if they know what’s good for them, they will visit him and ask him to contract a mysterious illness that prevents his completing his term. I’m not so sure this couldn’t happen now.

    I so agree, and I wonder if liberalism itself, Obama being it’s principal purveyor, isn’t suffering a bit. Obama becomes collateral damage to the people’s realization of the bankruptcy of the policies.

    Liberalism sounds so good on bumper stickers, but when put into practice, as Obama has succeeded in doing, all the down-stream repercussions that Conservatives warned about are coming to the fore, for all to see.

    Conservatism has far more to gain if the focus is on the ideology itself, instead of Obama. If liberalism is deemed the culprit, then liberals will be severely weakened beyond Obama. Yes, meaning Hillary.

    Liberal friend of mine, age 45, favored Obamacare after its passage. Last night she tells me it’s a farce. Her private policy before called for $250 per month premium, with a deductible of $1500 per year. The best she can get from ACA is $420 per month, with $2800 deductible. She makes about $65k per year, so I imagine no subsidy.

    She’s beginning to see Obama for what he is. She still calls herself a liberal, focussed solely on social issues, but I could see her pulling the lever for a Republican.

    I visited Hiroshima a few years ago. I was curious about how the Japanese there viewed Americans.

    To my surprise, I could find no animosity. I was told by a tour guide that Japanese school children were taught pretty much the truth, that their own out-of-control military was to blame. I was also told that older Japanese, those who lived through the war, would be the only ones who still harbor animosity. I never found any.

    I participated in the Hiroshima ceremony, right outside the museum, in which every year one Japanese citizen and one American citizen is chosen to walk ceremoniously up the quad and ring the “Peace Bell”. I was that American on that day.

    Obama is getting all the desired benefit by merely threatening to grant amnesty. It benefits him to wait until the last minute, and then he will play small ball. It’s a bluff, and we’re all falling for it.

    Not that I want this illegal influx to continue, but I have lived in Latin America, and I smell backfire for the Democrats in what is happening here. For several reasons.

    I am not sure about Salvadorans, but Hondurans and Guatemalans will not necessarily embrace liberal political views as readily as everyone seems to believe. They will share an awful lot with Cubans that came here in the fifties and sixties. Their culture will be naturally averse to government attempts to enslave them and their social beliefs align more with conservatives.

    They are coming here for different reasons than Mexicans, for the most part, and will not be eager to embrace the entrenched Mexamerican establishment.

    It’s a matter of percentages, not all will embrace liberal politics.

    Already we see red states rejecting, and blue state blacks are beginning to perceive a very real threat.

    Just my two cents.

    wayoverontheright to markomalley

    It’s obvious that for the last six years Obama has been attempting to destroy capitalism in America, and the Republican party. Overtly.

    He has underestimated capitalism. After 250 years of freedom, American capitalism is truly like a weed, very difficult to eradicate completely. The private sector has absorbed the many blows to credit, capital formation, and onerous regulations by adjusting. By working harder, by improving productivity, and with a huge, immeasurable underground economy.

    The Republican party meanwhile, is in the process of being altered from the ground up, by the people. What is forming as a reaction to Obama’s policies is most certainly not dead.

    This leaves the Democratic Party as potential collateral damage.

    When he goes around Congress, he goes around both parties. Obama shows no more loyalty to the Dem Party than he does to Israel or the UK.

    I’m not so sure it isn’t deliberate. For Obama to become dictator, the Democratic party must be destroyed too.

    When Democrats finally realize what he’s doing to them, it will be too late.

    “It really scares me”.

    As it should, Mika.

    Sarah’s message was meant to scare you. Sarah Palin knows there’s no stomach for impeachment within her party, her statement clearly includes the words “any politician”. It was directed largely at democrats, who had better give this guy the hook before he completely destroys not only the party, but liberalism itself.

    It wouldn’t scare you Mika, if you knew that removal from office wasn’t deserved. What’s really scaring you Mika, and other democrats, is, it is slowly dawning on you that Barack Obama considers the Democratic Party as part of the problem too. His penchant for “going around Congress” includes going around the Democratic Party.

    His worldview requires that the whole thing comes tumbling down.

    The Democratic Party is just as much his enemy as are the Republicans.

    And by the time you people realize this, it may be too late for you.

    The best case scenario, of course, would be that the powers within the Democrat Party would pay Obama a visit, and ask him to step down. With her statement, Sarah is betting that there’s some thought being given to this within the party.

    Notice the careful choice of the words “any politician”. She could have just directed her statement to those within the party she represents, but no, she said “any politician from either party”.

    Obama is destroying the Democratic Party, and more importantly, allowing everyone to see the wrongness of liberalism itself. We would be doing the democrats a favor by yanking him off the stage. No, I don’t thing that’s what she’s after. This is a message to democrats that they’d better give him the hook, and she knows there are some within the party wishing to do so at this point in time.

    Her reasoning here, I believe, is to precipitate a revolt within the party. We already can see there are some within congress, even in the Senate, who may be thinking clearly now about damage control. More importantly, potential donors need to think about where Obama is taking the party.

    No, this wasn’t a message to Republicans, her statement was designed to get liberals to begin to think logically, and move to cut their losses.

    Make no mistake, they won’t tell us what they’re thinking, but privately they must be considering removing Barack Obama before he takes them all down.

    Who has the most to gain, politically, by removing Barack Obama from office? It’s not Republicans, not any more.

    Make no mistake, these polls are a serious problem for the liberal psyche. Polls serve a much more important purpose for liberals than they do for conservatives.

    Liberals require constant affirmation for their beliefs, because events and consequences of these beliefs consistently prove them wrong. A warped worldview needs lies to sustain itself.

    This is why the MSM exists, to sate the constant psychological craving liberals have for affirmation of these beliefs. Someone has to provide the lies that prop up their tenuous hold on sanity.

    It is also imperative for liberals to maintain the moral high-ground, so they literally go nuts when polling shows they’re not popular. It really shakes up their world.

    It’s not a good time to be a liberal.

    Great editorial.

    Here we have further evidence of what most of us predicted would come to pass. It’s tempting to blame Obama and Obama only for the healthcare fiasco, but perhaps liberalism itself is endangered here, and it is a much bigger prize.

    It seems to be sinking in now that those who are suffering the most as a result of the ACA are Democratic party constituent voting blocs. The young, by design, the poor in general and blacks in particular. The subsidies are a mirage because of the high deductibles.

    Obamacare, even with all the other scandals emerging, still affords us the most important political ammunition, with which to actually banish liberalism from the public sphere-for a time, of course, because it will never go away.

    I could use a few decades of life in America with liberalism out of power, and that’s where Obamacare is taking them, IMHO.

    “Mr. President, we have some people there at our embassy that need protecting, if they are overrun and killed, this will reflect badly on you”.

    Obama-”Well, if you are saying we need a few boots on the ground to accomplish this, then ok, but I want the minimum to protect these people, not enough of a force to actually repel the Islamists. How many would that be?”

    “Dude, I would say around....4 to 5 hundred?”

    Ok, good point. I was assuming that the private military contractors there, with only air assistance, could get our people out. You too suggest insubordination, that is, defying this president at this time, in order to do what is right. We should either go in with full force or not at all.

    With the VA scandal and the Berghdal release, the President is clearly at war with the military, now would be a good time to take a stand, but yes, our people at the embassy should be kept from harm’s way, and for me, 250 soldiers doesn’t accomplish this.

    This would be the time for the military to take a stand, and refuse to deploy.

    The first mistake we made was when we framed our actions post 9-11 in defensive (Afghanistan) and altruistic (Iraq) terms, instead of unabashed punitive and retaliatory ones. This turned out to be a minor mistake because the persecution complex that Islamists possess, caused them to see everything as punitive and retaliatory anyway, especially when, unlike during the Clinton presidency, we were willing to put boots on the ground and shed blood. I think this cowered them a bit. Until.........

    ....the second mistake was made-electing a Democrat. Liberals are afraid of our enemies, and don’t understand that respect can only be achieved by making them fear us. Obama has squandered all the respect that was gained by our willingness to shed blood to punish our enemies. He believes, as all liberals do, that showing we are harmless will protect us, when it only emboldens them further.
