  1. “The Obama Morning News ” – Keith Koffler

    Is it news? Or just evil repeating itself, as it tends to do? Let’s see…

    “Obama eases visa rules for illegals” . . . Washington Post
    Illegals = Democrat voters. Also, liberals are always about open borders and anything that weakens the United States, and this does so both economically and from a security standpoint. Same old, same old…

    “Obama strategy: Demonize Republicans” . . . Politico

    Duh. Always has. Always will. Much easier than actual leadership, works really well with his base, and has the benefit of dividing and weakening America. Nothing new here, either.

    “Boehner: No more one-on-one talks with Obama” . . . Fox News

    Yup. Boehner’s going to tell THIS lie again. May even try it. Then Reid will just pocket veto everything the House sends over, the Minsitry of Public Enlightenment at the White House will blame the lack of action on the crisis du jour on obstructionist Republicans, Boehner will panic (again), meet Obama, and lick his, eh, boots some more. News? Don’t think so…

    “Reid threw Obama cliff offer into fire” . . . Mary Katherine Ham

    Just like he does with anything that resembles compromise, or anything that may embarass Prezzy. Remember how he wouldn’t even advance Hopey’s absurd budget to keep him from getting justly clowned? He always runs interference to periodically exchange the “bad cop” role so the low information voter will be again duped into thinking that The Angry Caliph may actually be reasonable. This, too, is a repeat.

    “U.S. influence in the world at risk” . . . New York Times

    Has been since Obama started apologizing for our national sins on the world stage, bowing to sheiks, and promising Uncle Vladimir more “Flexibility”, and all the while demoralizing, downsizing, and minimizing the military while making it obvious we are weak and divided domestically. This is in addition to his repeated torpedoing (intentional or not) of the U.S. economy.
    This is four year old “news”, at this point.

    “Biden: Latino’s are America’s future” . . . Politico
    Indeed. So is whatever group has political clout at the moment. Pandering. Not new.

    “Ronald Reagan’s home for sale” . . . Washington Times

    Ok, maybe this one IS news – to a point. Ronald Reagan’s America, however, was not only for sale, but was sold to the takers in the last election, in exchange for cell phones and birth control. It is interesting, however, that the Reagan house is just under 5 million, considering both its fame and its Pacific Palisades location. I wonder what the comperables were, say, four years ago?
    Devalued housing and devalued American dream? Not news.

    Dog bites man = Not news. Man bites dog = news. In this sense, the only real Obama “news” would be some sign that he were to change to something he currently is NOT, like, I don’t know, a leader or something. As such, this could simply be re-titled “Today’s sameness from Obama”. It could be made a bit more pithy were Keith a more crass person, like “Same Sh!t, Different Day, courtesy of Obama”, but Mr. Koffler is better than that, and we are richer for it.

    Evil never makes anything new, it just repeats. This is why those who don’t remember history are condemed to repeat it; but also why those of us who DO remember history are condemed to repeat it BY those who have been trained to live only for themselves, in the moment – which is why those who would harm America first made dependents, then increased them.

    For a Bibilcal look a this “news”, see Ecclesiastes 1:9
    “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

    Obama definintely shows the truth of THIS verse! Plus ca change Plus c’est la même chose…

  2. I wish you would have included this one from the UK MailOnline–Grief in the Oval Office: Picture of the terrible moment Obama was told about the Sandy Hook shootings is released. A photographer just happened to be on hand? BARF.

    • Pete Souza, Obama’s official photographer, is with him 24/7. He’s the hardest working member of the entire administration. Actually, it
      was Pete who chose the photo in this article as his personal favorite. The UK Mail has a link to all of Pete’s favorites. It makes you wonder how Obama has time for anything else; in fact, this is why he doesn’t have time for anything else. I hope he has a giant migraine at the end of the day from all the flash bulbs popping.
