I’m frankly starting to feel bad for Obama, and that is saying something. Absolutely nothing is working for him right now.

Forward! Good job Mr. President, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Glad I spent 8 years of my life to watch it die with a whimper.
Anyone else sick of “I heard about this on the news just like you?” The fact that there is a ‘crisis’ is a ‘crisis’ of leadership. Sorry, the man is an absolute joke. A hundred scandals, all of which he just had no idea were transpiring, mean that he is either a liar or incompetent - I suspect the former…
Oh no - so that means that the book can’t tank in the Chinese market as well?
Awe, this poor administration just has the WORST (read convenient) luck with technology. First Obamacare exchanges, missing Benghazi emails, now this - when are these poor hard working servants of the little guy going to catch a break? My question is, how many more dozen blatant lies and cover-ups are even the most die-hard Obama supporters going to fight through? When will you all see this guy for who he really is? It’s not a condemnation of all Democrats, most, like their Republican counterparts sometimes have to toe the party line. However, we have a crisis of leadership right now - 20% of people polled by NYT ‘trust the government.’ We have a crooked Chicago politician in office massively expanding the federal guvs reach and scope. This is dangerous, scary stuff and yet I have liberal friends who just refuse to see it. It is as clear as the nose on their faces - Benghazi had nothing to do with a video (more lost emails!), the IRS was targeting conservatives on authority of the president (witnesses), jobs reports in October 2012 were altered (CBO), votes were tampered with (convictions), Obamacare is a total trainwreck (numbers totally made up), our southern border is totally uncontrolled, Putin is running rough-shot over eastern Europe and we are about to lose any shred of influence in the ME - yet he is defended like a beloved child. Well, this “I was as shocked as you were” BS is not believable. I am a retired Office…my orders came from above, and so on. There were no rogue actions, they are all top down. This administration scapegoats some mid-level waste of space and gets a pass on everything. I would say ‘good luck’ but you are taking the rest of us down this sewer with you. Stop voting for scumbags.
So the Catholic Church is supposed to abandon 2000 years of beliefs because liberals think they should? I think you all need to arrest your use of the term “hate” because you’re using in incorrectly. Believing marriage is between a man and a woman is not hate. It’s a differing belief. Just enough with the hyperbole. This isn’t the holocaust. This isn’t the civil rights movement. I’ve been in combat - almost none of you know the first thing about hate.
Why does it make more sense for him to have even more responsibility when he can’t win as a coach in a weak conference? Because he is related to POTUS? If he wasn’t, would you still think that makes sense? Or would he just be another losing coach who got shown the door?
Depends…would we even be having this conversation if he wasn’t the POTUS brother in law? Didn’t think so.
Yeah…because this changes everything right? If a snarky bumper sticker is what you deem competent governance, I weep for this nation.
Yeah when all else fails, turn to petulant quips. Seriously, they are spending nearly $20MM/month to sell something that few want and few can afford. Forward.
Well - they could actually be the best hijackers ever. Perhaps they don’t want anything that can be given to them. If they want a nuclear device delivery vehicle (let’s say) that is capable of reaching targets 12k miles away, an ER (extended range) 777 is perfect! The passengers? I’m a pilot - I can put on my oxygen mask, slowly de-oxygenate the cabin, you all fall asleep (in minutes, and have no idea whats happening) and eventually suffocate. I turn the hvac back on and enjoy a spot of tea. Guess what, I got a free 777 and I am over uncontrolled airspace in the middle of an ocean. Just a theory, but something tells me that everything I have seen has been done very methodically, I would be surprised if it really is as clumsy as you believe.
The 80s called, they want their foreign policy back! - smug childish candidate, 2012 Do you think laughing hysterically at Obama’s proposed sanctions is just Putin’s way of showing fear and concern?
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2014/03/russian-deputy-pm-laughs-at-obamas-sanctions/ And here is the reaction to President Tough Guy’s proposed sanctions. Putin owns him. Time to elect an adult instead of a petulant community organizer. This is the most embarrassing thing I have ever witnessed.
Good thing he has nothing major to worry about so he can do some comedy. There’s a reason Putin doesn’t take part in antics like these. He’s a serious man. World leaders have to be. And because of this, he is currently beating Obama like a rented mule in every facet of international diplomacy. Maybe Obama’s comment to Romney that “The 80s called, they want their foreign policy back” would be funny if it didn’t clearly illustrate how ignorant and oblivious he was. Turns out that the 80s are calling in a big way - and it isn’t shaping up like the last time around. Glad you all got a laugh out of The Amateur. Good luck with that. Remember, when you lose global influence, quality of life goes down. The dollar declines, inflation follows, the trade gap widens. Hope they do a skit about that too.
I don’t blame her - if she wants 2016 to be successful, she will distance herself from the trainwreck that is the Obama administration. Eastern Europe is going to be embarrassing for Barry & Kerry. If you thought he was de-pantsed and emasculated with his handling of Syria, wait to see what Vlad has planned for a former Soviet republic! I hope you all wake up a bit. Amateur hour is over - Hillary would be a vast improvement over Obama. Partly because she can be criticized without being charged with a hate crime, partly because her agenda is more palatable to all parties. IE, she isn’t a screeching liberal; she can pick her battles.
Meanwhile back in Chicago, Atlanta, Philly, Detroit and a hundred other American cities, hundreds of black teenagers are gunned down by other black teenagers on a daily basis. I’m not trying to be callous, but there is a much bigger problem for the AA community than the occasional profile killing by a white guy. I guess I don’t understand the selective outrage when there is wholesale slaughter of young people not being addressed…
Are you all ready to stop calling this whole thing “The Arab Spring” yet? You do realize that you were told that this was a great thing by your government, when in all actuality, democratic republics like Egypt were thrust back to the middle-ages? This administration lost control of the middle east, and to save face, they convinced you that this was something other than a militant islamic takeover of pillars of middle eastern stability. And you cheered. Because you will believe whatever you are told. Guess how many women now get to go to college in egypt compared to 5 years ago…
Have any of you read Saul Alinski’s Rules for Radicals? Alinsky was a social activist (and communist) that Obama has given speeches and taught about (under the name Baracka Obama, but that is another creepy story). You can pick up a cliff note version because it is written like a chinese furniture assembly manual. Basically, you never engage in meaningful, truthful dialog with your “enemy” (it really calls other citizens enemies) - it humanizes them and may take you out of your area of expertise. Also, #5 - Ridicule is man’s most powerful weapon: we see this on an hourly basis from this administration. Ridicule “Tea baggers” “wing nuts” “bible thumpers” “flat earth believers” etc etc - by subjugating them, you marginalize their beliefs and deter others from attempting to relate to them. It’s worth reading if you wonder why we are so polarized right now - it isn’t racism, it isn’t 1%ers against everyone else. It is a well orchestrated strategy. This is the most divided I have ever seen this country, and some statistics suggest it is more divided than prior to the Civil War. I think it’s funny that he knew nothing about Benghazi, IRS, NSA, F&F, O-care failures, etc - yet, when we compromised sovereign Pakistani territory to assassinate the most wanted, well hidden man in the world, he was sitting at the table watching on TV…
We really really missed out. A man of great intelligence and integrity - glad you chose to go with the narcissistic pathological liar instead. Glad you let Daily Show and a gaffe about a binder drive your decision to reelect the architect of your misery. Forward!
WHAT DID YOU ALL EXPECT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!?!?!? You were TOLD this would happen - but too enamored with Hope & Change and Forward and Yes We Can. Why is this article written like this is news, unique or unheard of? Sorry sheeple, remember all of those things you were told that turned out to be total lies? Well, the pile keeps growing. Forward.
Louis Zamperini’s plane was not shot down, it experienced a mechanical failure while on patrol, oddly looking for the downed crew of another B-24. The plane captain fanned instead of feathered the props on the affected engines and the yaw forced an asymmetrical stall. Do yourself a favor and read Unbroken, it is exceptionally powerful.
Sigh - it’s better than Obama, but that isn’t saying much. I can’t wait to have another liberal elitist tell me how much I should make, what my kids should eat, where they should go to school, what health insurance I need, whether I deserve a gun or a host of other totally invasive things. Crystal ball time; she’ll probably win, we’ll continue to lose influence around the globe, the dollar will continue to devalue, debt will top $25T, schools will continue to get worse, government dependence will continue to grow, taxpayers will dwindle as their share of the ever increasing burden grows, the economy will continue to grow at the slowest rate since the 1800s, states like IL, CA, NY will default, people and businesses will continue to flee blue states, the NSA will continue to watch you, the IRS will continue to target you, the DOJ will continue to selectively enforce the law as the president sees fit, your quality of healthcare will decline as more docs and hospitals refuse to accept Obamacare policies, more insured americans will lose their insurance and your children will die poorer than you. The best part is - as a straight, white, christian male - this will somehow all be my fault…
Think this is bad, you should read about Chicago. Public sector unions are pretty much bankrupting every state and city in this country if left unchecked. This is the tip of the iceberg. The funniest part is that these guys will all retire in their mid 40s with full pension and lifetime benefits, paid for by you, your children and grandchildren.
I really never think it is OK to try to out someone who you suspect is gay - that isn’t journalism, it’s bullying. Great point by the author that this is the same tactic used against closeted LGBT kids in school - and if we are all screaming about the injustice in High School cafeterias, why are we OK with it on CNN? We preach 1 thing and do another way too often nowadays. Journalism is dead. Shock value is now the only content.
But but but but - evil corporations that sell evil products that are bad for us are to blame! Not the decision of a free-willed individual to make choices for him or herself! Liberals - so funny. Ban big soft drinks in NYC, people will just buy 2. Face it, the more you try to engineer Utopia, the more foolish you look.
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-gage-park-shooting-20131219,0,3050409.story There you go - 5 dead in 18 hours…and guns are illegal there.
Gun control has done WONDERS in Chicago! Wait…it’s the murder capitol of the country - never mind.
This is what your government thinks of you - instead of informing you and supplying you with the tools you need to make informed decisions, they go the Jib Jab slapstick route. Keep watching the bouncing ball minions.
Sigh…if this is the worst thing that happens to you, most of the world would gladly trade places. First world problem much? The world is full of ignorant, crude people. End of story. You are not victims of tremendous injustice as much as you would like to think so. But this is the Obama age - everyone is a victim and everything in life should be fair! Also, it is illegal to offend or be offended by anything…
Here’s your Ghost of Christmas Future, my fellow Americans. Remember when Obama mocked Romney for his view of Russia as our biggest geo-political foe? “The 80s called, they want their foreign policy back.” Well, here you have it, turns out the 80s really did call and we will have that foreign policy back. Maybe Romney was bright enough (and worldly enough) to know that an ex-KGB operative, red army commando and communist loyalist was probably not going to have a very liberating reign. But I could have told you all that. I think we need an adult in charge.
Wait but Obama already won Syria, remember? When he derped around just long enough for Putin to come in with a token, unenforceable deal to save face while sacrificing influence in the northern ME? The ME is a trainwreck right now, the worst I have ever seen and I have seen too much for my taste. Maybe we can stop spinning it as “Arab Spring” soon too? Moderate democratic republics like Egypt are now under sharia law - they didn’t liberate, they capitulated.
I love how #3 - Illinois is labeled “guns.” It’s funny because Illinois has the strictest gun laws in the country, yet Chicago is the murder capitol of the country… Silly democrats. They sorta downplayed that little fact when Obama was campaigning on gun control, and his home city is the guiltiest of all.
Yet you all know enough about Europe to want their socialist programs. Low information voters, unite!
Why the F would his mother allow him to have firearms, let alone FURNISH THEM TO HIM?!? She was getting him a CZ for Christmas? I am all for the 2nd amendment - but this is 100% on his mother. She knew he was sick and yet allowed/furnished guns for him? My firearms are locked in a biometric safe bolted to the floor. My ammunition is in a second bio safe bolted to a different floor. My carry is in, you guessed it, another bio safe when not on me. There are no lunatics in my house, but guns need to be secured at all times with no exceptions. What freaking shame that could have been prevented if she wasn’t his doormat.
Oh thank God Harry managed to change the subject…er um, fix this horrible problem. Like when Obama tapped the former chief of the worst school system in the country to run DOE? A real appointment of merit rather than a personal favor, obviously.
