Yes, he’s historic, alright (new items denoted by ••• prefix).

Doug Ross @ Journal: President Barack Obama’s Complete List of Historic Firsts [Updated]

Non-negotiable

President Obama will neither sign government funding bills that slash domestic spending nor negotiate to reduce the federal debt limit.

The president was not going to accept a budget in which domestic spending is further cut to soften the blow to Defense spending.

White House doubles down on vow Obama won’t agree to more spending cuts | Fox News

 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
So, Obama isn’t willing to cut spending, (but somehow will blame Republicans for his refusal) he’s unwilling to soften Defense cuts, and I’m wondering if he’s even read the Constitution he’s sworn to uphold. 
 
I think not.

OBAMA BANNED THIS VIDEO

Things that make you go, “hmmm.”

~Ness

So funny I forgot to laugh

Took me a bit to be able to articulate exactly what it was about this picture that so insulted me. 

It’s the whole “joke” thing. 

“Oops, you caught me!  Won’t let THAT happen again!  God forbid I do ANYthing resembling the transparency I bragged about in my campaign!” 

Flexibility?  You think you’ll have more flexibility?  Try yoga, and get the heck out of my White House.

In one fell swoop, the Obama administration has abrogated to itself the role of the judiciary and has thereby announced to the judiciary the executive branch will decide whether or not to uphold the decisions of the courts, including the Supreme Court.

This is what a dictator does. 

That’s the little-known truth about a government shutdown. The government doesn’t shut down.

via Psst. No shutdown during a ‘government shutdown’ – Yahoo! News.

Newsflash – it never shuts down!  And if it did, that might not be such a bad thing. 

By refusing to grant a single deep-water permit in the Gulf, Obama has shut down access to one third of America’s oil supply. With Libyan oil fields now closed indefinitely and with uncertainty about future production elsewhere in the Middle East, it is a dreadful time to be shutting down America’s oil fields as well.

But instead of reducing prices, Obama seems is intent on driving them up.

At a time when Obama is throwing away $100 billion on risky alternative energy boondoggles, a number of which have already gone bankrupt, he wants to end those modest tax advantages that actually result in the production of large quantities of new energy.

Obama, in fact, is doing everything possible to curtail domestic energy production, and yet he says that "our dependence on foreign oil threatens our national security." If reliance on foreign oil puts America at risk, why not produce more oil at home?

If the President knows that dependence on foreign oil threatens our national security and that new drilling techniques can increase domestic supplies, why is he intent on destroying our domestic oil and gas industry?

Can you tell me why Obama’s words and actions don’t match?

The federal government has increasingly assumed unlimited powers and acted against the will of the people. When they can’t legislate, they regulate.

via American Thinker: The Vanishing Constitution.

Again, this is how a dictatorship begins, by ignoring the people.

John Lott’s Website: So how much more are public school teacher paid over private ones?.

Disgusting.  The “greedy fat-cats” are the unions.

This would all be an arcane theoretical debate if we didn’t have Keynesians in charge of the public purse strings. The Obama Administration has spent several trillion dollars on Keynesian stimulus — what he likes to call "investments." So far he has only confirmed that Keynesianism does not work. Alarmingly, the President and his economic advisors are undeterred by the reality facing them.

via American Thinker: Bury Keynesianism, not Cash in Coal Mines.

Epic FAIL every time it’s been tried.  See how smart and sane Obama is?  He’s going to bet $14 TRILLION on the instant replay!

The problem with unionism is that those who do not feel such an agreement is needed are compelled to surrender their right to bargain for their working conditions and compelled, as well, to support a vast, expensive bureaucracy of labor satraps. It is coercion of workers masked as industrial democracy.

via American Thinker: End Forced Unionism.

Unions are not about the workers, they’re about the union leaders.  Always have been.

While public school teachers are patting themselves on the backs at these rallies about giving the “best quality education” to America’s children, the numbers simply don’t add up.

via Best Quality Education? | Black & Right.

The rhetoric and the reality simply don’t add up. 

The solution is simple: Drill Here Drill Now. But the Sierra Club wouldn’t like it, so our rulers won’t let it happen. Besides, Comrade Obama wants energy prices to "skyrocket." He told us so before the country went insane and elected him anyway. Unsurprisingly, he has been putting off-shore drilling companies out of business.

via Moonbattery: Vast Oil Reserves Go Unexploited in Alaska.

He wants energy prices to skyrocket.  Do you know why?  It’s not because he cares about you, who have to pay for it.

But all is not lost. Despite the miserable failure in the Oval Office, there are leaders among us. They are emerging in Midwestern states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio. Indeed, while most political analysts were focusing on the historic turnover in the U.S. Congress, the most significant impact of the 2010 midterm elections is proving to be what happened in statehouses and governor mansions around the country

These are the times that bring leaders to the fore.
