  • Obama scorched as 'delusional' on final day: 'This is worthy of men in the white coats'

    WorldNetDaily ^ | Nov. 5, 2012 | Joe Kovacs
    On the final full day of campaigning in the 2012 race for the White House, President Obama is being blasted for a speech he gave in Madison, Wis., a speech his opposition calls “delusional.” “We tried our ideas. They worked. The economy grew. We created jobs. Deficits went down,” Obama said Monday. “We tried their ideas. They didn’t work. The economy didn’t grow, not as many jobs, and the deficit went up. But here’s the thing. Governor Romney’s a very talented salesman..." “This is just delusional,” opined radio giant Rush Limbaugh, reacting to Obama’s suggestion that deficits have gone down...

    President Obama’s big rally tonight turned out to be just like his first, opening salvo of the 2012 campaign: a half-empty arena in Ohio. According toRealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy, there were “empty seats scattered around the upper-level of Nationwide Arena … Four years ago, after all, Obama was easily filling venues larger than that …” The event even featured Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z, and Obama still couldn’t fill it out. As it turns out, the empty seats didn’t look exactly “scattered.” They looked like substantial portions of the upper bowl of the arena, according to photos tweeted by those in attendance:...

    New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor, based in Chicago, tells TheBlaze that the Obama campaign may be planning to preemptively announce victory in the presidential election based on early voting numbers in an attempt to “demoralize Mitt Romney supporters.” Citing a “very solid source” in Chicago, Thor says the Obama campaign is looking to make it appear to voters that they have “this thing sewed up and are less than 24 hours to victory,” according to his source. Meanwhile, team Obama will also urge voters to get out and vote so they can say they were part of the...

    This country is at a historic crossroads, and the path we choose can determine our future far beyond the next four years. Our children and grandchildren may someday bless us or curse us for what we do this Tuesday. Against that background, it is painful to see the petty talking points and gross misconceptions that seem to dominate this year's election campaign. Take the question of jobs. How many times have we heard about how many jobs have been added during the Obama administration? Yet few people bother to find out whether these are net additions to jobs — which...

    With just one day left before the polls open, Democrats have settled on a closing message to the 2012 campaign that portrays the Obama presidency as a brief moment of enlightenment in America’s bleak past and future. America used to be a place of economic, racial, and sexual oppression--and it would be again, Democrats argue, if the country turned to Romney instead of rewarding Obama with a second term in office. That is what Obama means when he invokes the repeated refrain--“We’ve come too far to turn back now.” It’s an idea expressed more crudely by the likes of Cher,...

    America is in incipient decline, and this week’s presidential election might be the last chance to reverse it. We are becoming a different sort of country, with a different people and different beliefs. Another four years of Barack Obama well might take us past the point of no return, although no-one, to be sure, knows quite where that lies. There is still time to change course. There might not be time by 2016. Nearly a third of Americans now depend on food stamps, welfare, disability payments, or some other form of government support, compared with one out of five when...

    At a Virginia campaign appearance on Saturday, former President Bill Clinton was in the middle of a hilariously delusional stemwinder about how Barack Obama, the most bitterly divisive President in modern history, had worked to bring us all together. (This was after Obama told one of his own audiences to think of voting as an act of revenge against their enemies.) But then Clinton unleashed a storm of controversy by saying this about the American military: “One of the things the Decider-in-Chief has to do is decide whether he’s going to bring this country together across all its diversity or...

The nation should be preparing for how he might react when it happens -- there is nothing more dangerous than a cornered god. In 2008, Americans wholeheartedly bought the Obama dream. It's never easy to let go of a dream, but today, people have let go of Obama the dream -- and on November 6, they will let go...

Before he leaves, the schedule indicated, Obama will "deliver a statement" in the White House Rose Garden at 10:35 a.m., the White House said. Obama on Wednesday morning confirmed the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, the administration’s point man during the Libyan revolution, in a statement condemning the "outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took...

    Today, President Obama sent out a campaign email essentially blaming his supporters if he loses. See, he’s supposedly being outspent. And because he’s supposedly being outspent, he’s losing. And he can’t spend more money unless his supporters fork it over. This is the campaign version of Obama’s entire economic argument: he can’t fix the economy unless he spends more money. And unless we give him more money, he can’t spend it. So if the economy fails, it’s our fault. Here’s the perverse logic: Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back...

    A University of Colorado analysis of state-by-state factors leading to the Electoral College selection of every U.S. president since 1980 forecasts that the 2012 winner will be Mitt Romney. The key is the economy, say political science professors Kenneth Bickers of CU-Boulder and Michael Berry of CU Denver. Their prediction model stresses economic data from the 50 states and the District of Columbia, including both state and national unemployment figures as well as changes in real per capita income, among other factors. “Based on our forecasting model, it becomes clear that the president is in electoral trouble,” said Bickers, also...

    There is nothing new about the national media downplaying stories that lend support to conservative arguments. If a firearm is used to prevent a lethal crime, or unethical activity is uncovered at a liberal institution, the media goes to great lengths to make sure no one notices. But since Obama’s election, the media has also been downplaying stories that lend support to liberal arguments — when those stories have the potential to damage the Obama presidency. This is the case even for stories that under normal circumstances would have remained on newspapers’ front pages until they were seared into the...

    President Barack Obama could lose his home state of Illinois in November, a new poll shows. A poll conducted by Illinois-based pollster and political strategist Michael McKeon found Obama leading Republican Mitt Romney by 49 percent to 37 percent in Cook County, the home of Chicago. That puts him ahead by a far thinner margin than expected in a county he should be winning handsomely. Cook is the most Democratic leaning county in the state. It is also the most populous. Those numbers do not bode well for the president. “He has to come out of Cook County with a...

Gallup recently found that twice as many registered voters consider Obama "the more likable of the two presidential candidates." His campaign has been exploiting this with "Happy Birthday Barack!" web cards, and ads featuring a supercute Obama family photo.

    The imperial Presidency has overturned Congress and the law again. Not content to stop at rewriting immigration policy, education policy and energy policy, yesterday, President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an official policy directive rewriting the welfare reform law of 1996. The new policy guts the federal work requirements that were the foundation of the Clinton-era reform. While this real news occurred yesterday, most of the media remained fixated on political ads and speeches, letting a major and unilateral shift in America’s welfare system go nearly unreported. Welfare reform replaced the old Aid to Families with...

    In my last post, I compared President Obama's new executive order with the Third Reich's "Decree for the Protection of the German People." Every dictatorship, or every country en route toward dictatorship, justifies its lust for power and control by asserting that such power grabs are for the "good of the people" or "public safety in times of crisis" or for reasons of "national security." But all of the bovine scatology in the world cannot conceal the fact that control is the driving force behind dictatorship.

He recently showed contempt for the British by refusing to say he would recognize Britain's claim to sovereignty over the Falkland Islands, even if the Falklands' residents voted for British sovereignty in a plebiscite.

    Though overshadowed by the shocking Supreme Court decision on health care, the court’s Arizona immigration decision, issued three days earlier, remains far more significant than appreciated. It was generally viewed as mixed or ambiguous because the Justice Department succeeded in striking down three of the law’s provisions. However, regarding the law’s central and most controversial element — requiring officers to inquire into the immigration status of anyone picked up for some other violation — the ruling was definitive, indeed unanimous. No liberal-conservative divide here. Not a single justice found merit in the administration’s claim that this “show me your papers”...

    Here's a headline you likely never expected to see at the perilously liberal Huffington Post: "Obama Begs Donors: Send More $$$." The sub-headline below the picture was just as shocking: "Phones Donors From Air Force One... Call Caught On Tape... Issues Warning: GOP Will 'Run Congress And The White House.'" The link directed readers to a Daily Beast article titled, "President Obama Asks Campaign Donors to Send Him More Money." Author Lloyd Grove teased, "President Obama sounded weary and maybe a tad worried late Friday during a rambling conference call with campaign donors whom he repeatedly begged to send money—and...

    The grown-ups in the Democratic Party are looking beyond what they anticipate will be Barack Obama's single term, and positioning themselves to survive the aftermath. How else to explain the words of "Obama surrogate" Ed Rendell, former governor of Pennsylvania and Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton acolyte? Bill McMorris of the Washington Free Beacon reports: ___________________ A top Obama surrogate said the president will not have to worry about a swooning media or crowds overcome by fainting spells in 2012. "The media and the population saw him as this transformative figure [in 2008]; he was the...

    A former professor of Barack Obama has turned against his one-time student and publicly urged voters not to re-elect him. Roberto Unger posted a video on YouTube detailing the reasons why he believes the President does not deserve a second term in the White House. Mr Unger, a prominent Brazilian politician and an adviser to Obama in 2008, said: 'President Obama must be defeated in the coming election. He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States.'

    Barack Obama’s increasingly desperate struggle to win re-election is causing some of his worst traits to be put on display, including petulance and self-pity. The latest example occurred during a fundraiser in Baltimore, when the president said, “Because folks are still hurting right now, the other side feels that it’s enough for them to just sit back and say, ‘Things aren’t as good as they should be, and it’s Obama’s fault.’” This is rich. No president in human history has quite equaled Obama when it comes to blaming others for his problems....

    Barack Hussein Obama promised to transform America with an ill-defined message of change during his 2008 campaign. As Americans discovered what that change involved, they began to reject it. It was a change to the Left, to liberalism, to socialism. The first sign of rejection was the 2010 election when voters returned power in the House of Representatives to Republicans. Since the 2006 midterm elections that gave the Democratic Party a sweeping victory and elevated Nancy Pelosi as the first woman to become Speaker of the House, Americans have had an opportunity to experience the liberal agenda and they don't...

    Daniel Klaidman of Newsweek has written a new book, Kill or Capture , about the Obama administration's anti-terror policies, containing much information that obviously came from insiders, some of which is now the subject of demands for a special prosecutor to investigate leaks. In a review of the book in the Wall Street Journal, Mark Moyar quotes a passage that is frighteningly illuminating about the management style of the man upon whom our national security depends: In one of his most telling passages, Mr. Klaidman depicts a passive commander in chief who often procrastinated in the hopes that problems would...

    Painfully watched Obama's press conference this morning. The most uninspiring one possible from a most uninspiring individual. The conference had no purpose, no direction no call to action. America wants a president to lead, Obama can't lead. He tried to talk about econopmy, Europe, classified leads but no course of action. He should have said these are the three items we are going to work on in the next 90 days, extension of the Bush tax cuts, increasing the supply and lowering the cost of oil to natural grow the economy and the suspension of all rules and regulations on...
  • Obama: "The Private Sector Is Doing Fine"

    Question: What about the Republicans saying that you're blaming the Europeans for the failures of your own policies? President Obama: The truth of the matter is that, as I said, we created 4.3 million jobs over the last 27 months, over 800,000 just this year alone. The private sector is doing fine. Where we're seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government. Oftentimes cuts initiated by, you know, Governors or mayors who are not getting the kind of help that they have in the past from the federal government and who don't have the same...
