Obama: Narcissist



In his eyes, it's all about him.

Narcissism coupled with elitism enabled with political power is a dangerous thing.

Obama Energy Policy



Coming soon, oil so expensive you can't afford to heat your house,  gasoline so expensive  you can't afford to get to work, and electricity more expensive than anything else. But not to fret, kiddies, whatever it is, it's "green" so it's good for you.

SOTU: Worm morphs to butterfly again





Pivot to center? It must be campaign time again. Heaven help us all if he wins a second term and has no re-election prospects to reign in the extremist worm in him.

SOTU 2011: ObamaSpeak



In ObamaSpeak, more spending, pumping more money into unions and the rest of the leftist infrastructure, is now called "investment". And the cries for civility mean "shut up" the criticism. Be bi-partisan and agree to whatever we say.

New Wrinkle: President Barry Soetoro



It's just speculation, but it's very plausible. From HillBuzz.org:

HAWAII GROUND REPORT:

Could Hawaiian Governor Neil Abercrombie not be as incompetent and foolish as he appears, but orchestrating a deliberate birth certificate recovery dead end to cover his own papakole? UPDATED: Mystery solved! Reason Obama will not release birth certificate is because his name is legally written “Barry Soetoro” on it.

It’s easy to see why he never wants this to come to light.  Aside from the legal ramifications of this, how would the American people feel about Obama lying to them about his NAME all this time? And if he lied about something as simple as that, what else has he lied about?  It would open a whole host of new questions for most people about this man of deliberate mystery.

Update: SHOCK CLAIM: Hawaii Gov. Admits There Are No Obama Birth Records In Hawaii...
HT: DRUDGE

Postscript:  Yo Mama.

Pivoting to the Center: Obama's Shell Game



Distracting with one hand,
Picking pockets with the other.
...aka...
Saying one thing,
Doing another.

Update: FACT CHECK: Obama's SOTU and his imbalanced ledger
The ledger did not appear to be adding up Tuesday night when President Barack Obama urged more spending on one hand and a spending freeze on the other.

Obama spoke ambitiously of putting money into roads, research, education, efficient cars, high-speed rail and other initiatives in his State of the Union speech. He pointed to the transportation and construction projects of the last two years and proposed "we redouble these efforts." He coupled this with a call to "freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years."

But Obama offered far more examples of where he would spend than where he would cut, and some of the areas he identified for savings are not certain to yield much if anything.

Obama: What you see is NOT what you get



Obama's Ultimate Agenda, by Charles Krauthammer in the Washington Post
Obama has far different ambitions. His goal is to rewrite the American social compact, to recast the relationship between government and citizen. He wants government to narrow the nation's income and anxiety gaps. Soak the rich for reasons of revenue and justice. Nationalize health care and federalize education to grant all citizens of all classes the freedom from anxiety about health care and college that the rich enjoy. And fund this vast new social safety net through the cash cow of a disguised carbon tax.
Obama is a leveler. He has come to narrow the divide between rich and poor. For him the ultimate social value is fairness. Imposing it upon the American social order is his mission.
Fairness through leveling is the essence of Obamaism. (Asked by Charlie Gibson during a campaign debate about his support for raising capital gains taxes -- even if they caused a net revenue loss to the government -- Obama stuck to the tax hike "for purposes of fairness.") The elements are highly progressive taxation, federalized health care and higher education, and revenue-producing energy controls. But first he must deal with the sideshows. They could sink the economy and poison his public support before he gets to enact his real agenda.
The big sideshows, of course, are the credit crisis, which Obama has contracted out to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, and the collapse of the U.S. automakers, which Obama seems to have taken on for himself.
Bizarre and constitutionally suspect as these interventions may be, the transformation of the American system will come from elsewhere. The credit crisis will pass and the auto overcapacity will sort itself out one way or the other. The reordering of the American system will come not from these temporary interventions, into which Obama has reluctantly waded. It will come from Obama's real agenda: his holy trinity of health care, education and energy. Out of these will come a radical extension of the welfare state; social and economic leveling in the name of fairness; and a massive increase in the size, scope and reach of government.

Inciteful Speech and Violence




Did Barack Obama Cause the Shootings Yesterday in Tucson?

GatewayPundit, by Jim Hoft on Sunday, January 9, 2011, 9:30 AM

 

The media and democrats want us to focus on the nation’s “caustic political climate” after the tragedy yesterday. Maybe they should start with President Obama.

He may be the worst offender.
** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”
If the media really wants to improve the “caustic political climate” they may want to start at the White House.

“Here’s the problem: It’s almost like they’ve got — they’ve got a bomb strapped to them and they’ve got their hand on the trigger. You don’t want them to blow up. But you’ve got to kind of talk them, ease that finger off the trigger.” Obama on banks, March 2009


“I want you to argue with them and get in their face!” Barack Obama, September 2008


“We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.” Obama to Latinos, October 2010
