Obama, the one-term president, Obama vs America, Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation, The next big government/Big Labor bailout, Democrat Deception

Obama, the one-term president - Politico

Honest to goodness, the man just does not get it. He might be forced to pull a Palin and resign before his first term is over. He could go off and write his memoirs and build his presidential library. (Both would be half-size, of course.)

I am not saying Obama is not smart;(I AM HE IS A RETARDED BASTARD) he is as smart as a whip. (REALLY!? SERIOUSLY!?) I am just saying he does not understand what savvy first-term presidents need to understand:

You have to stay on message, follow the polls, listen to your advisers (who are writing the message and taking the polls) and realize that when it comes to doing what is right versus doing what is expedient, you do what is expedient so that you can get reelected and do what is right in the second term. If at all possible. And it will help your legacy. And not endanger the election of others in your party. And not hurt the brand. Or upset people too much.

Our One-Term President - The American Spectator

By Tom Bethell from the July 2010 - August 2010 issue

It's a good bet right now that Barack Obama will be a one-term president. The enthusiasm that once shielded this hyphenated American has dissipated. His supporters, although still numerous, have discovered that he lacks Bill Clinton's centrist instincts, and even his charm. The anti-Bush mania that swept the country from 2006-09 finally burned itself out.

Mosque Issue Shows Us We Have Our First Anti-American President - Rush Limbaugh

Let me just ask you one quick question here, folks. If instead of a mosque, somebody wanted to build a Walmart near the World Trade Center, the left, that is to say the unions, including Obama, would be up in arms at the loss of community. You can't find a Walmart in New York City to this day. There are 30 mosques at least. I think there's a mosque, what, 10, 20 blocks from Ground Zero already. You try to put a Walmart there, and can you imagine the uproar?

How about, folks, let's do this. Let's suggest that we build a Shinto temple right next to the Arizona Memorial out at Pearl Harbor. Why? We want outreach and to show we have no hard feelings. Put a Shinto temple there. How about a mosque next to the Pentagon? Why stop at the World Trade Center? Put a mosque next to the Pentagon. And let's put a mosque right next to the soon-to-be completed Flight 93 national memorial in Pennsylvania. I mean if outreach is what we're talking about here, why stop at the World Trade Center? I mean let's go all the way. But just remember a Walmart would mean up in arms.

Let's try a nativity scene next to the mosque then and see what happens. And then let's put a nativity scene next to the New York Times building and see what happens. And let's put a nativity scene on the White House grounds this holiday season, see what happens.

There's no question this is an act of provocation and even Muslims know it. A couple of them have written about it in the Canadian media. But there's no doubt here, right? By the way, the same imam has a mosque 12 blocks away from Ground Zero. He wants to have one two blocks away, community outreach, and Obama, there you heard it, clearly enforcing it.

Mischief in Manhattan - Ottawa Citizen

We Muslims know the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation

New York currently boasts at least 30 mosques so it's not as if there is pressing need to find space for worshippers. The fact we Muslims know the idea behind the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation to thumb our noses at the infidel. The proposal has been made in bad faith and in Islamic parlance, such an act is referred to as "Fitna," meaning "mischief-making" that is clearly forbidden in the Koran.

The Koran commands Muslims to, "Be considerate when you debate with the People of the Book" -- i.e., Jews and Christians. Building an exclusive place of worship for Muslims at the place where Muslims killed thousands of New Yorkers is not being considerate or sensitive, it is undoubtedly an act of "fitna"

Obama vs. America - National Review

Obama's sophomoric analysis of the issue of the mosque at Ground Zero has pinned him against America.
President Obama’s statements regarding the proposed Ground Zero mosque are the latest in a series of indicators that we are at a very peculiar pass: We have a president who doesn’t get America. For the first time in history we have a president whose default setting is in opposition to the general sensibilities of the American people. His behavior too frequently suggests that he’s playing a cosmic joke on Americans’ essential decency, considered patriotism, and belief in American exceptionalism.

Meet Harry Reid, Islamaphobe and apparent bigot - Wizbang

Defenders of the mosque at Ground Zero are quick to call critics Islamaphobes and religious bigots... or worse.

Will they call Harry Reid?

Add another election-year hurdle for Democrats: President Barack Obama's forceful defense of the right of Muslims to build a mosque near the World Trade Center site.

His comments are giving Republicans a campaign-year cudgel and forcing Democrats to address a divisive issue within weeks of midterm contests that will decide the balance of power in Washington. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, in a competitive re-election fight, was the highest profile Democrat to move away from Obama on the matter.

"The First Amendment protects freedom of religion," Reid's spokesman Jim Manley said in a statement Monday. "Senator Reid respects that but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else."

Will more Democrats join the so called Islamophobic and bigoted ranks?

Obama Brags That Dems Have Delivered Most Radical“Progressive” Agenda In Decades - First Things

Barack Obama bragged at his Hollywood fundraiser last night that he and Congressional Democrats have delivered the most “progressive” agenda in decades… It also happens to be the most failed, radical and unpopular agenda in decades, too.

The next big government/Big Labor bailout - Michelle Malkin

And the hits just keep coming. Fresh off the $26 billion BigGovJobs union bailout, the Dems are pushing another labor-backed rescue for beleaguered pension funds. Estimated initial cost: $8 to $10 billion, with as much as $165 million in potential taxpayer-funded liabilities on the horizon.

Just how bad is the California state budget? According to Doug Ross, they're taxing people on income they have yet to receive.

Newsweek Defends Obama's Leisure But Mocked Bush's Working Vacations at Texas Ranch - Newsbusters

While Newsweek's David Graham is hard at work defending President Obama's summertime leisure -- "A Short History of Presidential Vacation Outrage" -- by insisting that the press corps always complains about any president's vacation habits, it's instructive that he failed to indict his own magazine.

"War on terrorism stalled, economy on precipice, time for a month on the Crawford ranch."

Accompanied by a disapproving down arrow, that's how the August 5, 2002 Newsweek feature "Conventional Wisdom" derided President Bush's working vacation a mere three months before midterm elections in his first term.

Elsewhere in Newsweek's coverage at the time, writers put the term working vacation into derisive quote marks, and otherwise presented President Bush's time away from Washington, including a quasi-campaign swing called the "Heartland Tour," as a nakedly political move to bolster his sagging approval numbers.

Dems Continue Seeding “Racists” in Republican Crowds - Verum Serum

They are so desperate for this narrative to be true. They’ll do almost anything to make it ture. This guy at a Rand Paul rally gets caught red handed. The tin foil hat was sort of a giveaway:





What’s worrying is that someone a little smarter might play this game. It would only take one bogus incident to stoke the Dems racist Tea Party narrative back to life and, potentially, turn the tide.

Honestly, I wonder how many of the signs we’ve already seen, the ones that end up on Maddow’s show or Huff Post or Media Matters– how many of those were created for just this reason?

I am not worried about "someone a little smarter" playing the game. Nowadays, it's too easy to investigate someone's background to learn about his life history and where he came from.
