President I-Don’t-Care

July 27th, 2014 - 9:59 am

What is the president thinking?

That seems to be the question of the day. Russian clients are shooting passenger planes out of the air with Russian weaponry, Al Qaeda on Steroids is taking over Iraq, Iran is running circles around gormless western negotiators while it builds nukes for “peaceful purposes” (because once all non-Muslims are dead, there will be peace!), the Jews are at war with barbarous terrorists so of course the world is cheering for — guess who! — the barbarians, our country is being overrun by illegal aliens we can’t afford to accommodate — and the president of the United States is doing what? Yeah, fund-raising, baby! Doing his charming give-me-some-money speech thing:

I just flew in from Washington and boy are my arms tired! But seriously, it’s great to be back in Akron! Are those Republicans stinkers or what? It’s a war on women, I tell ya. They’ll probably impeach me next cause I’m black. Don’t boo — vote!  Thanks, and that’ll be $30,000 a plate!

What is he thinking? The ladies on Fox News — Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren  — keep asking their guests in tones of amazed frustration. The big writerly minds have comments and theories. Here’s Peggy Noonan in a Wall Street Journal column headlined “The Daydream and The Nightmare”:

I’m not sure people are noticing the sheer strangeness of how the president is responding to the lack of success around him. He once seemed a serious man…. Now he seems unserious, frivolous, shallow. He hangs with celebrities, plays golf. His references to Congress are merely sarcastic…. [He] doesn’t seem to care about his unpopularity, or the decisions he’s made that have not turned out well…. He thinks he’s done his work… history will look back on him and see him as heroic…. It is weird to have a president who has given up.

Here’s Daniel Henninger in the same paper, with a column headlined, “Obama to World: Drop Dead”:

How… to explain someone who claims he can run the country and a troubled world out of his back pocket while he flies from fundraiser to fundraiser? Barack Obama is the most provincial U.S. president in at least a century. The progressive Democrats who displaced the Clinton machine in 2008 and came to power with Mr. Obama have no interest beyond consolidating political and electoral power inside the U.S. Not even the White House of Lyndon Johnson, the ultimate pol, was so purely politicized.

The fundraising is a frantic effort to protect this new Democratic voter machine. The world doesn’t vote, so the world doesn’t matter.

"He thought making America less of a presence in the world would make the world more peaceful. He thought ordering up some sort of health care thingie would make everything cheap and everyone happy. He thought he could phone and pen his way to greatness.

But in fact he is a Hapless Putz. And rather than face that truth, he has turned off the world."


Really, Andrew. Don't mean to sound ugly but the above is just pure pap. This man is evil to his core. He is a Muslim sympathizer who wants to see jihad reach fruition. He HATES this country & most of the people who inhabit it. He's a race hustler just like Al & Jesse, just with a differing style than theirs. He wants his people to prevail at the expense of the white majority. He is an elitist who excuses with aplomb all the displays of hypocrisy exhibited by the Hollywood crowd & the limosine liberals.

Putz, my foot. He's a colossal jerk & a whopping asshat, to put it very mildly.

I still don't agree. Obama knows what he has done, and that's birth a Caliphate by overthrowing secular Muslim governments. He's created the conditions that have led to a genocide of Christians and the flattening of ancient cities. He has done this consistently, and is now causing unbelievably dangerous trouble for Israel. He has alienated nearly all our allies, and our only friends in the world are now Pakistan (sort of), Qatar (sort of), and Turkey (sort of).

The way to explain this presidency is not through incompetence, but through deliberate action, from day one, hour one, to empower the most radical, murderous criminals in the entire world - the Islamists... AQ, ISIS, Boko Haram, and the rest of them. All the same garbage, from the same source - Qatar and the Pakistani ISI.

I've documented this again and again and again... see website:

Don't be silly. He isn't withdrawing -- he's desperate to stop R's from taking over the Senate and so he's trying to gather all the money he can -- and then his team will do something (or several things) really, really nasty in Sept./Oct. Desperate means there's nothing else for him to do to WIN. He's dancing as fast as he can.

If he doesn't win he won't be able to complete wrecking the country for his last 2 years.

And, besides, there's nothing happening here or in the world that's troublesome to him (except for the problems he's having with Congress and the Supreme Court (and so has to keep a majority in the Senate to "deal" with.)

What, you think massive immigration from our Southern neighbors is a problem for him? It's not -- he likes it -- he called for it. Russia and the Ukraine? He's "upset" with Putin? Nah. It's just part of the "sharing" of regional power per his Zakaria Post American World. Why else would he be so easy on Putin -- he's keeping his "flexible" promise.

And Etc., Etc. all the same.

Stop kidding yourself. He's not withdrawing -- he's doing exactly what matters to himself.

President I don't care?

He and spouse Michelle should care?

They're set for life on the dime of the people they despise. The citizens of the country they volunteered they are each "ashamed", Who both made damn sure their contempt was obvioius.

To little effect unfortunately because of so many of the blind who WILL NOT see. To be we can but HOPE awakened to the light of truth -

As BH Obama and spouse go into the sunset with all the perks and privileges of international celebrity. Or is that royalty?

His "I DON'T CARE" attitude makes him doubly dangerous.

You left out the meetings with Muslim groups. It makes much more sense when you include the Muslims.

His grandfather was certifiably insane, his mother was the local poke. He spent his formative years smoking industrial quantities of dope and viewing naked pictures of dear old mom while being indoctrinated by the maternal communist grandparents. Being, as slow Joe said a clean and well spoken black, he coasted though academia as a C- student, that grade being given as a sop to white guilt. He has never produced or accomplished anything, but has every accolade except a Medal of Honor. He is the rarest of animals, an atheist muzzie; he hates America, he is a worthless grifter living large on the taxpayer’s dime, and will be remembered in history as the reason why popular democracy doesn’t work well as a method for choosing competent leaders. Evil, sure. But his innate incompetence, fueled by failed leftist ideology, is the reason that the world burns under his “leadership”.

Barry was selected. He doesn't believe in anything but self aggrandizement. That's why the global elite made him president.
He was and is a perfect puppet--amoral, no integrity, lazy and arrogant.
Who in his/ her right mind would want the input of a jive ass Chicago street hustler? Barry is always the most ignorant person in the room.
We have a wonderful con man in the White House.
