As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama: Race Relations “May Get Worse”

President Obama said that if economic prescriptions of the type he supports to increase economic growth and reduce “income inequality” are not adopted, then race relations in the United State may deteriorate further.

“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” Obama said in an interview published Sunday by the New York Times. “Racial tensions won’t get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they’ve got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot. If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, ” he said.

Obama said Americans in recent decades have lost a sense of security, feeling that a chance at upward mobility is being denied them. He railed against the deficit hawks in the Republican Party, suggesting cuts were being made to quickly and without proper discretion, and that “vital investments” must be preserved.

The president in recent days has suggested he will back massive new spending outlays, including funding for vast programs like infrastructure projects and early childhood education.

Obama vowed to act unilaterally if Congress blocks him.

“I’m not just going to sit back if the only message from some of these folks is no on everything, and sit around and twiddle my thumbs for the next 1,200 days,” he said.

  1. Once again, that Commie puke tries to convince the citizens of this nation that taking money away from them is an “investment”.

    ‘“I’m not just going to sit back if the only message from some of these folks is no on everything, and sit around and twiddle my thumbs for the next 1,200 days,” he said.’

    Of course he won’t! You can’t twiddle your thumbs while gripping a golf club.

    • meh, i feel that college is supposed to be an investment that should be HELPING me get somewhere, regardless of age, but from the looks of it, i will be paying off loans for a while, but thats ok, huh? :)

      • College loans are atrocious. You should look seriously at the endowments and the administration and faculty salaries of your school and try and figure out why your loans are so high.

        The choice of a good major, study and hard work will help you pay them off.

        College loans are not new. I don’t know your circumstances but some of us have worked and gone to college at the same time,

        • i KNOW college loans are not new.lol . i was not born yesterday.

          and of course you dont know my circumstances XD you dont know what types of jobs i tried taking on so i dont mooch off of my family and so that i can make my own way in life.
          loans are a terrible way of “helping” people who cant afford college to possibly make them more in debt, especially if they are not sure if their major or course of study is going to pay off later in life. plus, it sucks when you try to get a job somewhere, and either people overwork you, try to flirt with you while on the job and are lazy slackers, have the balls to judge someone by outward appearances, or tell you you are not good enough or screw around with your hours or money.

          and also, what is a “good” major?

          • Something to do with Math or Sciences, those BS degrees in Womyn studies will ensure you are indoctrinated in the latest marxist claims but do little to prepare you for a world that needs math and science.

          • Here’s a quote from a link in Keith’s morning news, written by Joe Curl for “The Washington Times”:

            To the president, health care is a birthright. An education at an excellent college? A birthright. A job with an always increasing salary, a long and steady career? Birthrights. A wonderful home? Birthright. An early retirement in luxury? Birthright. All 300 million Americans have all that and more as their God-given birthright, says the president. Who will pay? “They” will.

            SNIP
            ***************

            You seem to think along these lines, complaining that you are being forced to go into debt to get an education. You implicitly complain aobut a job that won’t allow you to quickly pay off your loans. You complain about companies making things that are not necessary for survival, such as would be a nice home.

            “plus, it sucks when you try to get a job somewhere, and either people overwork you, try to flirt with you while on the job and are lazy slackers, have the balls to judge someone by outward appearances, or tell you you are not good enough or screw around with your hours or money”

            As for the last sentence, that is why we have labor and wage laws. If someone violates the those laws, REPORT THAT PERSON. If someone “flirts” with you on the job, learn how to handle that obnoxious jerk. If it’s a quid-pro-quo situation, REPORT THAT PERSON to the appropriate authorities.

            The other complaints you have can be dealt with by becoming more assertive, or by finding another job. But, even a new job will have its share of assholes. Just about all jobs have assholes. Either learn how to deal with them or live your life in a miserable and whiny state, doing little but complaining about it.

          • One more thing: use better grammar and mechanics when posting here and elsewhere. Doing so routinely will help you write better papers in college and in the workforce.

      • The reason college has become so expensive is because the government is there to loan you the money to pay for it. If there weren’t government grants and loans the cost would go way down. One of those unintended consequences.

        • what about schools that have no government assistance that are still expensive?

          and also, if the government did NOT give loans out to people , then why are some schools just more expensive than others? i am sure people can learn things from sources like the internet or books, so why pay people to learn something from a cheaper source?

          i think people just try to make something seem like a luxury item so that the price of the school goes up because they are need of money.

          also, dont forget, there are also gpa requirements for financial aid.

          • College is a closed economy, much like the airlines. This is what happens when you have a monopoly and a fixed price. When one organization lowers it’s fees to become competitive it can only do so for a short time. The rest of the organizations will reduce prices as well after the initial move, and gain in market share once the other company falls back to the original price. Look at all the financial aid forms that you get when you apply for a loan. Why are your parents asked about the value of ALL their properties? What do your parent’s assets have to do with your education? Not much until you get to lose their assets because you intentionally cannot pay your loans. This is another way for a marxist government to seize the assets of people that have earned them.

      • Step a little closer to the basket. Perfect that shot, then move back a step or 2. Now if you missed #22 after hitting 21 straight, that is a rock star on the court!!

  2. There he goes again, the Divider-in-Chief. If successful people don’t hand over more of their hard-earned money to people who have done nothing but take all their lives, we’re going to have race riots. That’s hope and change?

    • so , its ok for successful people to take the money of others that makes them successful and not spread their wealth for organizations that actually help people? you do NOT know everyone’s case so don’t make a generalization for people who happen to not be rich or wealthy. that isnt the only one way to be successful sweetheart.

      • If people work hard and are honest and pay their taxes they are not obligated to “share their wealth” with anyone. Way of the world.

        If I have three tvs, and you only have one do you think I should give you one of mine that I worked hard for and paid for just so you could have an additional one and then we could both have two? And what if your neighbor doesn’t have a tv and sees that you now have two. Should you give your neighbor one of your tvs so now you both have two?

        This makes sense to you when I am the only one who worked hard and bought the three tvs to start with? Also did you notice the dwindling supply of tvs?

      • “so , its ok for successful people to take the money of others that makes them successful and not spread their wealth for organizations that actually help people?”

        Huh? How do successful people take other people’s money? By providing a product or service that the other people buy?

          • Air Conditioning isn’t necessary, I am betting you really like to live in that enhanced environment over sweating outside. Do you really believe that all products must be necessary? Based on your argument necessary means that if the majority of American’s do not have diabetes then we can forgo that “necessity” because well we don’t need it as a society. If you have problems with your blood sugar too bad so sad.

            You really need to do some thinking before you open your mouth. Necessary is not the role of our government, it has no right to determine winners and losers in the US, its only responsibility is to ensure that all have equal opportunity under the law regardless of race color and creed.

            • In Obummerland if the majority of American’s do not have diabetes then he will try to make EVERYONE get diabetes so no-one is left out. That friggen jerk can have my share of diabetes. He can also catch some bullets I want to toss him.

          • So what?! Only products necessary for life should be made? Who will determine what is necessary for life?

            Reading your posts brings me to the conclusion that you don’t like competition, don’t like risk, don’t like hard work and, basically, don’t like the USA.

            Why not make life easier on yourself and move to Cuba or the European Union?

            • Really.Before I quit smoking Sobranie cigarettes were a necessity , back when domestic cigarettes were $3.00 a pack mine were $5.00 -$7.00. I’m sure there were many people that thought I was crazy,and not because I smoked!

          • “Some products are not even necessary for survival”

            That’s kind of a peculiar phrase considering it was posted in an online blog, no doubt using some sort of wireless handheld device or even an ancient desktop computer. Some people might find these products an unusual selection in the context of “necessary for survival”. I need to thank you however for highlighting one of the major flaws in any economic system that is managed or controlled by a single or relative handful of masterminds. These economic systems substitute the personal preferences of a small elite for the independent and free choices of millions of individuals whose life’s and needs and wants vary as randomly as snowflakes. Any movement towards this type of economic system is always accompanied by increasing shortage, poverty and suffering. It’s natural for man to want to help his fellow man and man in his vain conceit believes he can devise a system that addresses the needs and wants better then a system that organically develops with time and experience. You see free market capitalism is the greatest system man has ever devised prescisely because he didn’t develop it. Free market capitalism erupts spontaneuosly in any system that places a high value on freedom and liberty as it is nothing more than millions of individuals engaged in triollions of small decisions freely choosing how to dispense their personally property. Personal property that was acquired by freely trading their intellectual and physical labor. There are no masterminds in this system. We are all masterminds choosing the products that satisfy our own unique set of needs and wants. No other system in history has been able to provide so much for so many and distribute it so equitably.

      • “so , its ok for successful people to take the money of others that makes them successful and not spread their wealth for organizations that actually help people?”

        Where did you learn that forced contributions from any person is righteous and moral? Most successful business people work hard for their money. They don’t “take” from anybody; they earn their livelihood by providing goods or services to their customers in exchange for remuneration. They have no responsibility to help other people, especially people who are too ill-educated or too lazy to help themselves.

        Maybe if this president that America’s young people are so enamored with had ever worked the checkout counter of a 7/11, he could give them pointers on how free enterprise works. Sadly, all they learn from this blowhard demagogue is Marxist claptrap – “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”

        • um, where did you learn to put words in someone elses mouth? dont jump to conclusions.
          who said i wanted forced contributions? i think everyone should donate to a worthy cause to make this world a better place. thats why i do not give money to churches, and try to be more knowledgeable on products that do more harm than good.

          plus, who wants to work at a 7/11? customers can have the nastiest of attitudes!

          • OK so you said you don’t want forced contributions? Yet you THINK everyone should donate to a worthy cause? That’s a forced donation. What if my worthy cause is my family? Why should I be FORCED to give any of my wealth to anyone. Why should I be blocked from saving 99% of my money? Why is it Democrats believe that savings are the enemy of a free economy? Why is it that the only “mainstream” economic model used in the world by our socialist friends is Keynesian economics. The man who famously stated that “in the long run we are all dead”. That’s one hell of a mantra to use in central planning Comrade. Keynes was a socialist and was using an economic claim to justify socialism. He was humiliated by F.A. Hayek who took him to task for his belief that all savings should be abolished and consumed by the states through devaluation of currencies.

          • You’re the one who wants to force people to donate, and this belief is stated when you wrote “everyone should donate to a worthy cause”. The word “should” is synonomous with “must”.

          • “i think everyone should donate to a worthy cause to make this world a better place. thats why i do not give money to churches”

            Maybe you should check out a few more churches. I think that you would find that most of them work to make the world a better place. As a matter of fact, that is the primary mission of almost every church, at least the ones that I have attended.

            You might want to check out this dude called the Pope. He just gave mass to over 3 million people on Copacabana beach in Brazil over the weekend. He seems to have this weird notion (to you at least) that the church’s primary mission is to help out those who are less fourtunate and living in poverty, those who are sick, hungry or need shelter.

            Obamas church of 20 years with its anti white, anti semetic and anti American vitriol is a notable exception.

      • Since money isn’t the only way to be successful, why are you worried about taking it from other people Lisha? Funny, how people try to make a point and their double speak complete eliminates it…

        • im not worried about taking it from other people. lol. but that is how business goes. im just expressing it to you.

          also:

          nice that you are putting words in my mouth jojo.
          ;)

      • Really? Do you really believe that someone that starts a business and sells a product is STEALING or somehow not providing a service to others? Do you really believe that a person selling a product or service is not paying their fair share to their employees? Do you believe that a company X which is a medium sized business and pays upwards of 40% for taxes, about 20% for employees and another 15-20% for all other operating costs and pulls somewhere about 20% in profit is somehow stealing money from others? No one forced you to march into that droid or apple store and purchase that phone. No one held a gun to your head when you marched into McDonalds or Wendy’s for that burger. Only YOU in our free market system chose to do that. Now you want to make some silly claim that they are doing so unfairly? GROW UP.

      • Nothing says that one must purchase their goods from someone who is already successful. Thats an individual choice of the purchaser. How does the purchaser decide to “spread their wealth”, what little they may have? It’s all a matter of degrees and perception, but to fault one for being successful is a generalization in and of itself not knowing what that persons financial requirements are.

        Again, it’s all a matter of degrees and perceptions, and sadly, all too often lost on those under-educated.

    • I have no problem with everyone contributing to provide a “safety net”. And it should be a temporary “hand up”, not a lifetime “hand out”.

  3. Time for the spine of steel to get down to brass tacks and drop the false pretenses…

    Appoint Al Sharpton “Secretary of War” and replace the American flag at the White House with one that says “No Justice – No Peace!”

  4. Hey Barry, I’ll make a wager with you. Ask congress to pass a law that kills obamacare.
    Within a month, unemployment will begin to drop as employers start hiring again.
    If it doesn’t happen, I’ll publicly pluck my pubic hairs in Macy’s window on Thanksgiving Day.
    If it does begin to reverse the tide of unemployment and start the economy on the path to recovery…well that’ll be my prize.
    As for race relations; those will get better when you and eric stop demonizing white people. We are Not the enemy.

  5. Seriously, these are the rantings of a madman. If there was any doubt in his first term, there should be no doubt now that this man is dangerous. Congress should start concentrating their efforts on how best to remove him from office. Even the DEMS are getting nervous about his state of mind.

    • It’s as though he’s promoting civil unrest or another ” civil war”. Black conservatives have even been uncomfortable with all of Obama’s dog whistles lately.

      I think what annoys me more is the complacent, enabling and spineless GOP leadership. While some voices are being heard, you have the likes of the Old Guard (McCain et al) smacking them down.

  6. By the way, where is Newt Gingrich nowadays ? He had a way with words, he had a hot temper, he could certainly give Barry some whipping when he goes totally astray.

    • One of the things Newt Gingrich is doing these days is hosting a revived program on the ultra liberal news cable called Crossfire. He goes where the money is. One of his fellow panel members will be Stephanie Cutter, the Democratic operative who accused Mitt Romney of being a felon.

        • Julie, I don´t know if we can see Crossfire over here, it depends on the hour of course. It may be in the middle of the night. However, I remember Crossfire from the eighties. One of the hosts then was Pat Buchanan. Maybe you don´t like him much here but I thought then that he was very, very entertaining. To hear such a bright, uninhibited, conservative man was a novelty for me coming from Sweden, a country more leftist in those days than it is today. I liked his style.

              • I thjink it stands for digital video recorder–most people with cable or satellite (DVR comes with) record shows and watch them whenever they want to–speeding thru the commercials.

                • Sounds great, Star. We have access to many channels here but I have noticed that I still usually watch our main, statefunded, noncommercial channels. The news I always watch with critical eyes and ears but now and then there are some good debates, shows documentaries, films and so on.

            • Yes Julie , Patrick Buchanan ( what a great Irish name ). Is he still in the media somewhere ? I too like people who speak their mind, so rare these days but so refreshing. He was goodlooking too.

              • He’s a frequent guest on Fox, and he also has his own blog site. If you can get onto Drudge Report, there is a link to Patrick Buchanan.

              • Yep, you can go to Drudge Report. Keith has a link in his left hand column on all his posts. After you go on Drudge, there are two columns of links under Drudge’s own stories. Buchanan is in the column on the right.

              • Besides “Crossfire”, Patrick J.Buchanan has been on “The McLaughlin Group” most weeks since 1982. He took breaks in 1992, 1996, and 2000 to run for President. He has also hosted and been a guest on numerous television and radio shows during the last thirty years. Mr. Buchanan was on MSNBC for ten years, but left controversially in 2012 due to statements that were in one of his many books, “Suicide of a Superpower”. I am always amazed at the facts that he has at his disposal on whatever topic is being discussed.

      • Interesting. Do you ever wonder why they re-elected Boehner for House Leader again? We could sure use one of those “whacko birds” in that position now.

        I like Newt and I’m sure he’ll slice and dice Cutter and serve her up with fava beans and a fine chianti to the CNN viewers :D

        • Wonder what ever happened to the former pest control exterminator turned Speaker….Tom Delay? We could sure use a good fumigation job at this point….

      • The heck with Gingrich, elect Governor Palin to be Speaker of the House. This would put her only two heart beats away from the Presidency.

  7. Threatening scare-mongering and race baiting. And the NYT merrily goes along. He is a disgrace of a man and a President, and the NYT is a disgrace to journalism. Let him act unilaterally. That would be good for the 2014 elections, and it is high time the imperial presidency went before the courts.

    And, no, I do not expect the Republican Party to do it.

  8. My family is hunkering down for some rough times ahead. We are not spending any money we don’t absolutely have to spend. Christmas will be cut even further. School supplies are not being purchased at the same amounts as last year. We are reusing, recycling and making do without whenever possible. We’re upper income Americans. We have graduate degrees and good jobs.

    But we don’t trust this man, our leader. We don’t trust that he wants us to continue to succeed. We don’t trust that he has the best interests of this country in his heart. He simply doesn’t care about anyone but himself.

    • There is an AP story on Drudge that 4 out of 5 adult Americans face poverty, are jobless, or are on the federal dole. If that is true, he has already done a pretty good job of equalizing us, but Obama is running out of sources to take from.

    • i thought budgeting was suppose to be a thing for everyone lol. christmas shouldnt be about gifts anyway. but i guess having a little non christian ideals with a “christian” holiday is a thing though.

      xoxo

      • Between this post and your post last night at 11:03 about not donating to a church because it’s not “worthy”, I’m thinking you also don’t like religion. That’s fine. That’s your right as an American.

        However, it’s rather hypocritcal of you to tell others what Christmas should represent.

  9. Wow. Talk about firing up the base….he is stoking the flames. “…chance at upward mobility is being denied…” By whom? The very people who pretend to be acting on the behalf of these misbegotten souls. What a creaton.

  10. Obama seems to amping up the hyperbole and the threats to “go rogue”. But I get a feeling he is beginning to overstep and there are small cracks and turns.

    Calling Benghazi and the IRS thing “phony” not playing well.

    And whether you agree or not with Bill O’Reilly’s recent rant on problems in the black community his delineation of the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of the world as “the civil rights Industry” and calling for a refocus on family values and societal norms makes overt race baiting and race hustling more problematic.

    Immigration is going to be a big problem if it passes irresponsibly. And while at one time I thought the House might do the right thing now I am not so sure. It was discouraging to hear Paul Ryan go all for the children and Dreamers at a recent town hall where illegal immigrants were granted a voice at the expense of the voters and citizens who attended and most likely at one time supported Mr. Ryan. Even Gowdy is mewing about the children.

    The Republicans have an opportunity in 2014 . I suspect they will squander it. But there is a growing bench and I like it. If they can hold strong.

    And, of dear, I have strayed and produced a rant. Summary — Obama is beginning to overstep and Hillary is rising!

    • Steve King of Iowa has a point about ‘the children’. The politicians pick out a few who are stars, then want to make a blanket decision about all. ‘The children’ need to be evaluated on a person by person basis just like their elders. But he is being vilified by his own party. I’m beginning to think the Republicans are becoming a party of bosses like old Tammany Hall. Grassroots can’t get a word in to them, but if they don’t listen, they will rue the day.

      • I support King. People are superficially objecting to the words he said so as to not have to deal with his facts.

        Just enforce the border.

        Similarly Coburn is on his high horse (along with McCain) about how Mike Lee is deceiving people with unrealistic defund Obamacare efforts. Coburn offers no alternative.

        So, to my mind the Republicans are not even going to try. And I have taken to call this their Benghazi mentality.

  11. “The president in recent days has suggested he will back massive new spending outlays, including funding for vast programs like infrastructure projects and early childhood education.”

    Paid for by:
    1. deficit spending,
    2. higher taxes, or
    3. further gutting the military.
    Pick one, or more.

  12. BHO’s presence is sufficient to create problems. He has never done anything to qualify him for leadership of anything. He has the reverse Midas touch. Where he walks, chaos follows.
    America is now a democracy. It is governed by a majority of smug, complacent, non-productive takers. The minority of responsible, industrious people pay homage to the majority with their tax dollars. The extortionate government cannot long survive.
    America can recover, if its people resolve to renew the pledge.

  13. Obama vowed to act unilaterally if Congress blocks him.

    This is what frightens me most about MrO: his absolute disregard for our Constitution and our laws. Don’t Americans see that he is flaunting our Constitution in everyone’s face, doing whatever the heck he wants?

    Congress, our elected “representatives” are totally useless. What happens when they get to Washington? Too much power?

    God save our country from this despot. I don’t know if our country will survive his next “1,200 days.”

  14. Please, Mr. President, just sit around and twiddle your thumbs, or play some more golf, for the next 1200 days.

    It won’t don’t nearly as much damage, or go by nearly as slowly, than if you try to fundamentally transform our country.

  15. He is clearly setting himself up to declare himself dictator. Even the threat of unilateral action should be enough to terrify anyone interested in living in a free society. Obama is completely focused on “transforming America” in the image of a Banana Republic, just as his buddy Hugo Chavez did in Venezuela.

  16. So, does anyone else miss Michelle lately ? I do, so did a little Bing searching for news, and fluff’n’stuff I missed….with snark

    1. MrsO, the Leader of the World for Healthy Eating is now turning to a “kids and gun violence” project in a recent speech to some lapdog group who slobbered at her every word. I feel safer if she limited her “expertise” to veggies rather than guns.

    2. Attended a Nats game a couple of days ago in a special box, stuffing her face with ballpark fare. Some photos got posted before her SS threatened the camera phone user.

    3. Defended “treats”, her healthy eating initiative was never about giving up comfort foods. Really?

    4. Cabinet Day Camp at Camp David had no NEWS, it was private and off the record doncha’ know. First time O meets with his Cabinet in MONTHS, we the people are blacked out.

    5. Sorry about no links for the above, google/bing the keywords :)

    6. Though this link is shareworthy:

    ….because you would never believe it in a billion years :D

  17. After five years of pretending to be a moderate liberal then spouting “Hope and Change”, President Obama is revealing his true self. He is nothing more than an angry Poverty Pimp from Chicago who exploited the economic slump triggered by the mortgage crisis to catapult himself into office. The irony as revealed in “Architects of Ruin” by Peter Schwietzer (funded by Governor Palin) is that in the most prestigious case of President Obama’s very limited career as a lawyer, he was a litigant in a precedent setting case accusing a bank of discrimination for refusing to issue a mortgage to a Black women who was manifestly unqualified for a loan. During Obama’s career working as a poverty pimp for the Democrat party in Chicago, his specialty was giving seminars on how to exploit the affirmative action lending laws in the Comunnity Reconstruction act to extort Trillions of dollars in NINJA loans (NINJA = No Income, No Job, no Assets) from the banks. These loans were then packaged by Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac who persuaded AIG to insure them with an implicit promise of a bailout by the Federal government if needed.

    Given President Obama’s unconscionable role in creating the mortgage crisis and his incompetent governance that has transformed what should have been merely a brief recession into a prolonged, economic slump that rivals the Great Depression, Obama’s most recent invocation of threats of racial violence is beyond the pale. The fact that Obama is threatening racial violence as a political tactic to coerce policy concessions from Congress so soon after doubling down on his “if I had a (bastard) son, he would look like Trayvon Martin,” by claiming that he could have been Trayvon Martin is beyond the pale. Many Americans wish that a teenaged Obama had confronted someone like George Zimmerman back when he was a young, drug addicted, want a be thug. If President Obama is successful in exploiting the bad economy that he rather than George Bush created, then many of us will view it as an opportunity.

    • YES, Corey! It is called impeach. With impeachment, Joe and all of the Washington Democrats (cabinet members) go away. Gone. Just like that. This __________(fill in the blank yourself) has held our constitution in total contempt. Now we need to do the same with him.

    • i’d like to run for president if i was of age, but i dont think people in the next few years are ready to handle anything since it is still holding onto old ways. sorry, this is the 2000s! quite a bit of stuff has changed.

      i would love to see a Lady president, or a gay one. or BOTH! i bet some of you guys would keel over if that happened. :3

  18. Hogwash!!!! How about his own form of “economics” that call for redistribution, taking from those who work to give to those who don’t want to work. The # of those on welfare has risen, so the underemployed under his administration. Then he turns around and blame others, as usual. This man is and was inept to be our president.

  19. Yes, the blacks are competing with the Hispanics, Asians and East Indians who come here to work, invest and open businesses. We have a permanent underclass going back to L. Johnson after his War on Poverty didn’t dent the situation, no matter how much money the govt. pours into it.
    And should we expect another executive order to spend money we don’t have and possibly can’t borrow? I just wonder if our lifesavings are in jeopardy…

  20. So, as the Americans’ president, Obama has a chance to lead, but instead chooses to fan the racial flames.

    “If you don’t do what I want, things will get worse”.

    Amazing!

  21. The AP story about 4 out of 5 Americans being in deep economic distress is now hitting many sites including the Huffington Post. I suppose they’re still (after 5 years) playing the meme that it’s all G W’s fault.

  22. Last week Rush Limbaugh discussed a book on Detroit that described the reign of Mayor Coleman Young over Detroit. In years past I’d heard his name on the news, but never knew he was a radical black separatist who used racial anger to punish the suburbs for their white flight after the Detroit riots. Now we have Preezy Revenge declaring war on the American people and threatening US with a race war if we don’t genuflect to his demands. This behavior is insanity.

    As Rush said, “I think it’s safe to say, ladies and gentlemen, that if Detroit mayor Coleman Young has had a son, he would look like Barack Obama. I mean, he’s a dead ringer for Barack Obama.”

  23. Let’s see if we have this right. Obama’s only solution to get the debt (and deficit) under control is to increase the debt (and deficit). If we and the Congress don’t cooperate with him 100%, there will be race riots all over the country. It’s like if you max out your credit card, and the credit card company notifies you that the only way to get out of debt is to increase your debt.
    Boy, this Obama guy is a pip, isn’t he?

      Two points, the second being in the form of a question:

      1. You cannot IMPEACH anyone that was ineligible to hold office in the first place. Just because your mainstream media refuses to acknowledge documented proof, does not make it any less true. By his own statement, “anyone who does not reveal the truth has something to hide”.

      2. Under The Constitution for the united States of America, the holder of the office of President has NO power to Make Laws. The person holding the office lawfully, is tasked by law with Upholding the Constitution against ALL enemies, Foreign and Domestic, and to uphold the law. Presidential Directives are NOT law, nor are executive orders. If the public were to realize this, and demand it be adhered to, we would all be in far better shape. When is the American Public going to learn these things?

      • Correcto Mondo Nemry that is why they do not teach civics and government from elementary to high school anymore, much less college. I found out through interview of 1,000 people in several counties throughout my state that many didn’t even know how many counties/municipalities were in the state, how many senators & delegates are assigned to each area and their names.

        If you want to dumb down a people teach them ignorance in those brainless factories call schools & colleges and you will have servatude crowd forever. God forgive if you teach your children the truth about their rights and government authority. Now I ask your forgiveness for mentioning the name of God in my writing, this country does not believe in God anymore, and I don’t want to be politically incorrect.

  25. He wishes

    people are sick of it, look at the lackluster “rallies” after the Zimmerman verdict

    People just want to get up not get over

    sad

  26. ““Racial tensions won’t get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they’ve got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot.”

    Newsflash you can change that little pot

    last I check you were the President of the United States

  27. Once again he is trying to blame someone/something other than his own bad policies. When will this man ever “man up”, take some responsibility and lead?

  28. My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also
    shot.

    I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.

    A Grand Jury of my mommy’s peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty… too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded..

    See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.

    Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me – so why should he care?

    I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation’s history, but the media didn’t
    care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.

    There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’
    for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives
    of the two black teens who murdered me.

    I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat
    innocently in my stroller – I no longer have my life.

    Isn’t this a great country?

    So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell
    your friends about me, tell your families, get tee-shirts with my face on them,
    and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

    I won’t hold my breath. I don’t have one anymore.

  29. This sounds to me like a not so subtle threat – directed at the angry and fed up with being fleeced, mostly White middle class conservatives who live in the Red states.

    Nothing more than a slightly more polished version of the same racial extortion racket that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have been playing on American businesses for the last 50 years. Except, this guy is shaking down the White American middle class taxpayers.

    The message is: Either you fork over more and more of your hard earned paychecks and also let me confiscate your 401K and IRA accounts, or my brothas will riot, loot, rape, and pillage your communities until you do.

  30. Obama has been just as big a promoter of racial discord as Holder, Sharpton and Jackson. It has little to do with his socialistic “spread the wealth” initiative. The so-called president is looking at racism as one of his potential “emergencies” under his own executive order to declare martial law and take over the country.

  31. Oh good. So glad Chicken Little has announced, once again, that the sky is falling. I can now take appropriate measures to ensure it doesn’t fall on me.

  32. Obama said Americans in recent decades have lost a sense of security, feeling that a chance at upward mobility is being denied them. He railed against the deficit hawks in the Republican Party, suggesting cuts were being made to quickly and without proper discretion, and that “vital investments” must be preserved.

    especially this last 6 yrs.has seen a plunge into chaos, devaluing credit, more welfare , less growth..

  33. With Holder, obama, Jackson and that other race baiting fool flooding the airwaves with their particular brand of hate, of course race relations could get worse. How else is the pseudo government going to get an excust to use their one point six billion rounds of ammunition that they found “necessisary” to purchase in a failing economy. They need rioters in the streets so they can mow them down. The object is not to improve the economy any more than it is to improve race relations. The object is to cripple America.

  34. He is saying these things in an effort to stir up the blacks and promote racism, because the more divided we are, the easier to conquer and bring in martial law to control the riots. Except that there are no riots, so he keeps spewing this verbal vomit hoping they’ll take the bait. He is the worst of the racists.

    Note to Star – although not the brightest in the sky – Income equality is one of the steps in the communist agenda. Another one of their goals is to have more & more people dependent on the government. So yes, he is a commie. He could be nothing else – not with his background.
