I agree 1000%. You know the 2012 election was not that long ago. How short are the memories of Republicans that they have already forgotten the lessons? How often does the Republican Party have to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory before it realizes that it must present a clear and determined opposition to all liberal and progressive policies and agendas? We need clarity and distinctions, not various degrees of conformity to the liberal ideology.
"I hate to be negative, and I refuse to be pessimistic, but anyone not alarmed by current events is in some physical, mental or emotional state I am powerless to comprehend." Bill O'Reilly expressed utter disbelief to his guest Charles Krauthammer just a few days ago that Obama cannot perceive the recent threats from ISIS, China and Russia which are undeniable and could not be clearer to anyone in possession of his faculties. The real issue here is that Obama "is in some physical, mental or emotional state I am powerless to comprehend." It is a state called pathological narcissism. http://townhall.com/columnists/HerbLondon/2010/01/26/presidential_denial http://www.faithfreedom.org/obama.html
"In his mind, to make such an admission is tantamount to conceding that he was wrong and that his policies have exacerbated these threats -- and that's a charitable assessment." Admitting one is wrong is difficult for anyone, but to a pathological narcissist like Obama, it is impossible. It would precipitate a profound existential crisis that might make him join Robin Williams in the after-life. The Middle East is a horrendous mess and it will only get worse because Obama is psychologically incapable of dealing with it. The events there threaten his self-image and self-esteem like nothing he has ever experienced. He must be very close to realizing that he is incapable of being POTUS but that admitting this would shatter his conception of self, so he cannot do it. In the meantime, the country continues to suffer because he cannot admit his shortcomings and failures.
"That means the United States must downsize its military, because our sheer strength and power constitutes a threat -- a provocation to the rest of the world. It means that we must pursue "economic justice," a wretched euphemism for undermining our capitalist system and redistributing our wealth at home and abroad." Obama's mentors, his mother, his grandparents, Frank Marshall Davis, Jeremiah Wright, Saul Alinsky, Karl Marx and many other radical leftists, have contaminated his mind but he doesn't realize it. He is their captive and our nemesis.

America: The Ostrich Years

Obama, the Imperial Ostrich, sticks his head in the sand when he plays golf. Well said Derek!
"According to U.S. intelligence officials, the barbarians who have slaughtered, tortured, and raped thousands of innocent men, women and children, and who killed James Foley, are plotting to bring their war into our homeland." Robert Spencer's Jihad Watch website has been documenting Muslim barbarism around the world at least since 2001 when I started visiting it. Finally. 13 years later, I see 'mainstream' pundits and journalists noticing the savagery that Muslim zealots have been perpetrating since Mohammed's time. Frankly, as much as I despise IS and all other manifestations of Muslim supremacy and fascism, I am grateful to IS for so openly and brazenly displaying the barbarism that somehow 911 apparently failed to display. What is it about evil that makes people so afraid to observe it in its pure form? One day we may thank IS for making us more willing to do so.

Am I The Only One Who Doesn’t Care?

"I can’t be the only one, can I?" Speaking for myself I wish I also didn't care, because, as you say, whether I do or not is irrelevant and meaningless because nothing will change whether I care or not. Everything about Obama, his candidacy, his presidency, his incompetence, his arrogance, his lies, his hypocrisy has bothered me a great deal for the past 6 years. Yet nothing I ever said or did has removed him from office, has changed his ideology or behavior. I wasted a lot of time and energy trying to convince people that he was a threat to our existence and well being. He got reelected anyway. He's continued damaging the country and the people who wanted little else than to achieve the American Dream. Those who had the power and authority to constrain him and to impede his agenda did nothing. My voice was like a single tree falling in an enormous forest, a noise no one heard. So, it's not only Ferguson, or Sanford, or Iraq, or Israel, or the economy, or the declining standard of living, etc., but every tragedy or injustice that this regime is responsible for that are not worth caring about. Because, whether we care or not, we are impotent and helpless. Those who possess and wield the power in this nation will do whatever they want to regardless of whether any of us agrees or not with their policies and actions. Watching what is happening in and to this country is like watching the beheading of James Foley by the IS. What does it matter if you care or not, Foley lost his head and life while you watched and could do nothing to prevent it.
"Two terrorist organizations have apparently joined forces to wage jihad against the United States. So what, if anything, will be the administration's response?" Bin Laden is dead. ISIS will self-destruct. Obama gives us his personal guarantee!

Death of a Teenager

"An attorney for the Brown family said the autopsy exam sought by his family showed he had raised his hands and was "trying to surrender." Forensic pathologists who had examined his body said they could not confirm that." Is it not possible that Brown's arms were raised to assault the police officer?

"But the death of Michael Brown, who just graduated from high school and hoped to pursue higher education, has seized the nation's attention like no other." It has seized the media's attention which has forced the rest of us to take notice. In the scheme of things it is less newsworthy than the violence in Chicago this past weekend which resulted in 7 dead - SEVEN DEAD, not just one! As with the Trayvon Martin case, the race agitators have seized on this event as another illustration of racism, this time a white cop shooting an 'unarmed' black teenager. Almost no one has stated what is probably the unmitigated truth: this incident had nothing to do with racism but was simply a matter of the police trying to enforce the law and to apprehend criminals. But stories like this sell newspapers and provide others with sanctimonious justification of their existence: Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, NAACP, liberal and Democratic politicians, not to mention the "feebies" the looters receive by pillaging local businesses.
