Obama and Nothing but

OBAMA AND NOTHING BUT

The ‘Dictatater in the White House  “There are times where — until Nancy Pelosi is speaker again — I’d like to work my way around Congress.”  Thinking that is incredible, but saying that in a large gathering in public, is beyond the pale.  But, should we be surprised, given his background?

If not worse, just as bad: “Today (Monday) President Obama will launch what The New York Times reports is “a series of executive-branch actions to confront housing, education and other economic problems over the coming months, heralded by a new mantra: ‘We can’t wait’ for lawmakers to act.””  The list of “acts” to undue will be long and onerous, come January, 2013, with the necessary landslide victory 53 weeks from now.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS

Libya goes sharia  What a surprise.

Observations on the death of Gaddafi  Excellent column!!!

Iraq Withdrawal, a gift to Iran.   “It once seemed that Iraq could be a strategic ally and base for our influence in the Middle East; it now may become both those things for our foremost enemy in the region.”

Michael Yon’s open letter to SecDef Panetta  Nobody knows better about battlefield situations than he.    Expected results?  Obama will say something like, “I won.”

OCCUPY MOBS

“F*** the Military, F*** Your Flag!” John’s view: “I think that on balance, the “occupy” movement has been a good thing. It has given Americans a close-up look at modern liberalism. These degenerates are endorsed by Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. That tells you everything you need to know.”  I agree with the second part, only, but the anarchists, such as this guy, have co-opted the movement, such as it is.

Islamist group joins OWS  Fits like a glove: hate Israel; hate America; liberals love them all.

MISCELANEOUS

Rage on – and on and on  VDH ‘vents,’ oh, so well.

ELECTIONS

Can the Youth Vote be bought for $1 Trillion?  The number is not a typo if the proposal to forgive all student loans should pass.  Preposterous?  “And, like subprime mortgages, loans to aspiring college students are driven by government social policies that take no consideration of any relevant indicators of the ability to repay. Thus, gender studies majors get the same deal as aspiring petroleum engineers.”  There just aren’t enough “professorships” or Delta smelts to absorb them all.  [bold italics mine.]
