I’ll have to admit I have not thought about it like this at all. I’ve been giving him a lot more credit than he might deserve. Andrew Klavan could be on to something here. Still, even a hapless putz can do a lot of damage, and Obama has accomplished a lot in that arena. Actually, I don’t think he’s at either end of the spectrum; he’s somewhere along the continuum from genius to putz, but leaning toward the latter.

I was reading a piece in McClatchey DC the other day describing Obama about “climate change” (his characterization of everyone who doesn’t believe the global warming BS as a “fringe element” is typical climate hoax stuff), and I had to stop when I saw this quote from the chief egomaniac:

Dick and Liz Cheney lay out the case that Obama is betraying our past, and squandering our freedom. While territory secured with American blood falls to ISIS jihadis, Obama is busy wasting time on a non-issue like climate change.

Who the hell does this guy think he is? Oh, right – never mind. “His government” didn’t need to obey the law that requires 30 days notice to Congress before releasing any Gitmo detainees. He promised to empty that place during his presidency; I guess this how he will do it.

I can’t say I blame them – I wouldn’t want her there either. The Imperial Mrs. would probably
highjack the occasion to promote some political cause, in addition to effing up the seat allocations.

Looks like Mrs. Obama isn’t too happy about it. Does the man think of anyone but himself? Did he think for a minute that this might be beneath the dignity of the office?

The president said just this week that he wants to focus the remaining years of his presidency on addressing income inequality. Looks like D.C. will be a good place to start. Median family income there has exploded past the rest of the States. (via ZeroHedge). Doug Ross has an excellent suggestion: cut every non-defense discretionary agency budget by 50%. That would perhaps make a dent.

Prepare for more redistributionist schemes, you middle-classers. My guess is Wile E. Obama and his merry band of progressives at the ACME Economic Destruction Co. will be taking another run at raising the minimum wage – and putting even more low-income people on the dole.

The Obama thrill is gone among America’s millennials aged 18-29 just a year after they helped the president win a second term. A new and shocking poll from Harvard Universitys Institute of Politics released Wednesday found that younger Americans are so disgusted with President Obama, Congress and the troubled Obamacare system that 47 percent support recalling the president and just 29 percent are planning to sign up for health insurance.”

Wile E. Obama and the rest of the clowns associated with Obamacare just keep on producing fail. After the colossal fail of Healthcrap.gov on October 1, the top brass decided they’d have it all fixed by December 1. Guess what? Not gonna happen. Now, they’re prepping for more fail by saying “it won’t be perfect.”

Yes, for the government it makes perfect sense. Sounds like a $7 billion slush fund for Obama to throw around to his cronies.
The Department of Health and Human Services revealed on Wednesday a plan to spend up to $7 billion to find ways to reduce spending under the Affordable Care Act while maintaining or improving the quality of health care. The solicitation for bids for this wide-ranging project appeared today on the Federal Business Opportunities website:

Wile E. Obama and the rest of the cronies at the ACME Economic Destruction company must be giddy with this revelation. I especially like the stat about the ratio of government benefits to dollars paid in taxes (bolded).

Nope, it never crashed. It’s functioning at “very slow speed” and “very low reliability.” George Orwell, please pick up the white courtesy phone…
