If you watched the third Presidential debate you heard Obama say
“Americans should be proud of [*] this nation, [pause] ME…”
Click on the President’s nose to play the 35 second video.
And they said G.W. was arrogant because he was from Texas.
* a parenthetical reference was made that was only a distraction from the President’s main point which was that Barack Obama IS America.
When Osama bin Laden was killed, I gave a modicum of credit to Barack bin Obama for authorizing the hit. I was wrong; he didn’t deserve a whit. How much credit do you give a burglar for using a comfortable rope to tie up his victim?
It has come out since that he denied the operation more than once before finally allowing it. In his rhetoric he repeatedly took the credit for having accomplished the feat but he did not initiate it; he did not plan it and he did not carry it out. President Bush initiated the search; our military carried it out. It just happened on Obama’s watch and all he did was try to stop it and even in that, he failed (thankfully).
All of that is manifestation of political opportunism, poor judgement and lack of respect for those who risk their lives for the rest of us. It gets worse, much worse. Watch the video. It’s not short, so allow time for it.

Congressman Mike Kelly got a rousing ovation from this brief speech on the House floor. It ranks with Rick Santelli’s “stop the spending” rant that gave birth to the Tea Party.
The phantom of the Opera is the longest running musical in the history of Broadway proclaims the marquee on the Majestic Theatre in New York City. Michael Crawford was sensational in the lead.
You have to give the man credit. Obama seems to know quite a few well placed ladies with a lot of punch above their waist. He’s no slouch on foreign policy either. He knows which nations are our strongest allies and he knows the Philippines and Ireland are not very big. President Bush never made a statement showing he knew that. And one last point, obviously the teleprompter ridicule has been overdone. You could tell by his halting delivery there was no teleprompter in use, and yet with very little hesitation he knew exactly where the Prime Minister of Australia was from.
Seriously, the President’s condescending style stops just short of being insulting, and his guests know it. You can see it in their faces as he speaks. Obama was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996 and has held political office ever since. Nonetheless, as author Edward Klein observes, after 16 years in government Obama is still The Amateur.
What’s your plan, CNN Candy Crowley asks. To make everything better, Obama adviser David Fluff answers. Those are goals Candy says. We have more work to do the Fluff explains. Good, but what’s your plan Candy asks again. It’s the Republican’s fault says Fluff. Is that your plan, Candy asks once more again.
Plouffe (It’s Plouffe, I’ve just been told but he seem more like fluff to me), Plouffe says we have done a lot of good. Then he rattles off a list that includes patent reform for inventors but doesn’t include Obamacare, that’s smart. His brag does include lowering taxes, that’s good.
How do you plan to do more in the four more than you did in the four before, Candy asks, what exactly is your plan. Plouffe – Look, the people have a choice. It’s Romney or us. And Romney doesn’t have a plan.
