Polls show that the American people are losing confidence in the competence of President Obama. As a result of a trifecta of doom Obama's approval rating has slid downward to 42%. Could be a blip on the radar? OR, the widespread realization that a one term Senator, a community organizer from Chicago and a maddeningly cerebral intellectual...is unable to set political maneuvers, empty rhetoric and superficial optics aside and respect the views of the American people that dare to be contrary to his own.
Obama's Press Conference bombed because the perception that he's "in charge" or that Government agencies will curtail the bureaucracy that stymies local peoples' efforts to clean-up the mess themselves is simply not apparent. Today Obama flew to the Gulf so as not to waste the crisis. He doesn't connect with the men and women who live on the Gulf and derive their livelihoods from the bounty of fish filled waters and beautiful beaches that lure tourists' and thier money to the region. What's clear is Obama doesn't feel anyones pain but his own.
(Yes We Can!!)
Truth is: No President could plug the deep water oil leak without the right government experience, resouces and know-how...sooo, BP is clearly in charge of that part of the disaster, NOT ('0'). However, as thousands of gallons of Oil floats towards the shoreline, destroying the fishing business at peak season, dirtying the beaches and polluting wetlands that serve as breeding grounds for many species of birds and animals, the people devasted by this Oil Spill should be mobilized to mitigate the damage to their own beloved environment without having their spirits dampened by government interference and red tape delays.
Working hard to make things better at home is a therapeutic tonic that's good for what ails ya...but apparently, Obama is clueless to Americans' Can DO DNA...instead, he reflexively relies on inept, unfeeling BIG government agencies that merely get in the way; and, worse...insists that worried, disappointed citizens do the same. Trust him, trust his beloved Government?
(The Mouth that Roared)
James Carville, a Louisiana resident and a prominent Hard Ball Democrat, nailed Obama's response to the BP Spill this way: "We're dying down here!!"..Ofcourse the WH criticized Carville for not blindly supporting his Party's President. After today's visit to the Big Easy when Obama tried to feign compassion..."I promise we will not abandon you." The *ragin cagin* was not taken in by the smoothe talker's calculated rhetoric, afterall, he said.. "they're just words" Words, by the way, that Carville said yesterday ...ACTION is what counts and what people on the Gulf are expecting...SOON.
(Who's Your Daddy?)
If you believe this happened..Melia interrupted her dad while shaving and asked: "Did you stop the leak yet, dad?" You can just hear Bill Clinton advising the President to show some emotion, personalize it..use your daughter to satisfy the prying, relentless Right Wing Conspiracy.
(Arizona Dissed Xs 2)
As soon as the State of Arizona passed the illegal alien law, Obama jumped on it. He smelled a pick-up of Hispanic voters for the Democrat Party and in 2012 for his re-election campaign. Everything's political with this crowd in the WH..but they're winding up on the wrong side of the fence on this issue.
The last thing Obama and his campaign consultants wanted was a battle in Congress over immigration reform before the November midterms. Polls show that 60 something percent of the electorate favor the Arizona Law and stronger Federal enforcement of Immigration Laws plus control of the border FIRST. Amnesty which most Democrats favor is a dirty word to the rest of the country.
Obama announced that he'd be sending 1200 National Guard Troops to the border. This was an insulting political ploy after John McCain and Republicans asked the CIC at a WH luncheon for 6000 troops to secure the Southern Border. Here again, Obama under estimates the IQs of the American people. The 1200 troops are not authorized to capture and arrest illegals crossing the border, they're paper pushers, clerks and bottle washers sent there for political affect...a phoney deployment devised to quiet down the protestors on both sides.
This administration had the nerve to equate the Arizona Law with human rights violations in China of all places. Also, on a State visit, Felipe Calderon, President of Mexico, when addressing Congress said the Arizona Law "introduces a terrible idea using racial profiling as a basis for law enforcement." He got a standing ovation from the Democratic side...Republicans kept their seats...as they will in November.:)
(Sestak seduced by Clinton)
Months ago, Joe Sestak told the story of the WH asking him to get out of the Primary against Arlen Specter..the WH has been clearing the field for reliable Obama followers since this election year began. Here in NY the Chicago mob told Governor Paterson not to run for re-election and has openly meddled in NY's choice of candidates. So I'm not surprised by the Sestak bribe, however, if everything was on the up-and-up when Obama was asked about the PA Primary scam, why not simply answer the question? Instead, he announced that a statement would be released that would explain the matter.
Well it came as expected this Friday before a 3 day holiday...classic. The White House Counsel reviewed the Law and made sure that nothing incriminating would be said or written by anyone involved in the shady transaction. Bubba, Bill Clinton (Impeached for lying), made the offer to Sestak but was unable to seduce him with a "no compensation job on an advisory panel?" This scenario doesn't pass the smell test.
That said, for the Obama machine it's Mission Accomplished!..President protected..no high crime or misdemeanor. This affair could've been disposed months ago by a more ethical, transparent Administration and a less desperate President. In this case the cover-up is a lot worse and less believable than the crime, if any.
