Officials think little of us

President Obama thinks I’m stupid.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and present Secretary of State John Kerry think I’m stupid.

The Senate and the House of Representatives think I’m stupid.

The Internal Revenue Service and the National Security Agency think I’m dangerous.

Every politician in Washington thinks I’m gullible.

Why else would they feed me a cock-and-bull story about an anti-Muslim video causing a protest outside the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that turned violent, resulting in the death of four Americans? The protest actually was a well-planned and organized attack on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks. The president knew immediately it was carried out by al-Qaida.

The worst Congress in the history of this country tells me that Obamacare will be the best thing since the invention of the wheel, yet in the same bad breath its members beg not to be a part of it.

The NSA thinks my emails and phone calls might be a threat to national security.

The IRS wants my money so they can give it to couch potatoes and baby-making machines while harassing fiscal conservatives.

The president wants Congress’ approval to lob a few Tomahawk cruise missiles into Syria as “punishment” for using chemical weapons against their own innocent people. He has told the Syrian government the targets, the duration of the attack and probably when to expect them. Meanwhile, the Syrian government has moved the targets into civilian areas or brought in civilians to the stationary targets to be used as human shields.

Saudi Arabia is absolutely giddy at this proposed attack. Funny – if the Saudis didn’t sell us so much oil, they most likely would be one of our enemies in the region.

The saddest thing is that I could go on and on, but if I did I would end up needing an anti-depressant.

Yes, Washington thinks I’m stupid and dangerous – which is exactly how I feel about them. I believe there is genius and stupidity in Washington. The difference is that genius has its limits.

You're right!

They think you...and me....and all of us... are stupid. What's more, they think that they---the "best and the brightest" of the elite--- must take care of us like a parent takes care of a young child.

Most Haplessly Incompetent Administration in History

It's becoming increasingly obvious who the inept are. This is one of the most haplessly incompetent administrations in history.

Riverman you are WRONG

It isn't increasingly obvious, the media sees to that. I think this whole Syria thing is a wag the dog to keep people from figuring out or caring about what Obama care is going to do to America. Syria used Chemical weapons months ago and only now is it an issue? THE ONLY reason Obama is informing congress is because sequester has reduced military spending to the point where the resupply of the weapons used is going to require special funding from congress. Looks like Obama may not get his Congressional support! Just in case you think it is only Republicans that oppose it it seems that most of the World leaders also oppose Obama's most excellent Syrian adventure, unless you are jihad supporting oil money terrorist funding mid eastern Ruler.

Let's be honest

The conservatives failed to show up at the polls last November, for reasons that can only be speculated. It could have been because Romney was Morman, or something else as innocuous as that, however, I can't think of any good reason for staying at home and not ridding ourselves of the menace in the WH. But many did. We had our chance and let it slip by us, setting into motion a sequence of unfortunate events that may result in the changing, for the worst, the life of every man, woman , and child in this country. Elections have consequences.

you see the President IS the commander in chief...

all the hate in the world does not change that fact. Someone must stand in the breach and direct. all of us 'do gooders' who think we have a right to be heard are being reckless. Sure ask some pertinent questions, but this off the wall bs that has been used as reasons for NOT ACTING, like 700 billion a year is NOT enough... give me a break. Now if you really are in the 'pope Francis' crowd, you may have a point, but at this time in history, barbarism should be dealt with in kind.

The Koch brothers' shadow

The Koch brothers' shadow group has increased it's television ad buy against Obamacare to over $ 1 million, according to The Washington Post. One of ads features a doctor saying she worries that " the government ( will) be in the middle of things. " Not only is this factually inaccurate, it's also pretty rich stuff coming from a group that wants the government to dictate personal health decisions to women. They're going to keep rolling out the false ads, so we the people have to keep pushing back. Republicans and their wealthy allies have lau he'd an all - out smear campaign against Obamacare. The Koch brothers - backed " Americans Prosperity" is running slick Tv ads designed to mislead the public. It's part of a two - pronged strategy : national Tea Party groups demonize the reforms on the airwaves, while Republican elected officials block the implementation of Obamacare at the state level. The Koch brothers' ads contained " dubious claims about the new law." That's a nice way of saying they're lying.

... we are all getting screwed for the lack of competence of the people who voted for this guy in the white house, who now wants to take us to war even thought pretty much every leader who knows their stuff is telling him it is a bad idea. You would think that with those two big ears of his he would actually listen. But he won't, he's too proud of this bad ideas.

Obama thinks you are deaf,

Obama thinks you are deaf, dumb, and blind. After going on TV telling people about "his redline" to act in Syria, he then goes and says "it isn't my red line "-well which is it? You can find videos of him saying one thing and then another saying I didn't say that. Good golly the most incompetent person to ever hold office. He argued for more UN support for Iraq and now seems to be saying who cares what the UN says for Syria. Well if it isn't his redline then "he shouldn't act on it" and should let the UN and international efforts enforce this redline-that isn't his. Now he admits he has really diminished our military forces but still says we should go it alone. So if there are repercussions we may likely be unarmed.

loves to say: " Never waste a good crisis". The obama administration reminds me of a movie with de niro and Robin Williams. Can't remember the name, thank God. The narcissism of this "president" and his race has caused irreparable harm to America. obama is like that showboating African dancing in the endzone after he's done what he was paid to do in the first place, without all of the song and dance. Negroes need to get over themselves. I have.

On and on about the Koch

On and on about the Koch brothers. What about the 80 liberals who the Washington post reported will donate 1 million to progressives. All the rich democrats, who got rich off the economic collapse, support the progressive movement. Then George Soros for example and his support of MoveOn. and other progressive causes. Don't be naive to think that both parties aren't being influence by wealthy supporters. So the argument is neutral because there is no difference between parties with that kind of influence.

Using the words "the Koch brothers" has become so cliche. Why not throw in "synergy", "proactive", "military industrial complex", and "paradigm" to round out the buzzwords.

Just man, if the government

Just man, if the government isn't getting in between Doctors and patients just exactly what was going on when Siblius denied a lung transpant to a 12 year old girl and the family had to go to court to get it? Siblius statement was "Well some peole live, some people die"! The statement "not only factually inaccurate" inaccurate but government regulation of treatment is going to increase. I worry more about Sores influance than I do the "(que scary music please) Koch brothers!

"but at this time in history, barbarism should be dealt with in kind."

Would that be the Assad barbarians or the Muslim Brotherhood barbarians which we would be helping. Would that be the unknown barbarians that used the gas or the rebel barbarians photographed executing Syrian soldiers with their hands tied behind their back. I get SO confused about which side is OUR barbarians and which is THEIR barbarians.

What I don't understand...

...is why Obama is so up in arms about the use of chemical weapons in Syria, yet at the same time he thinks it's ok to use chemical weapons against unborn American babies. Could it be:
A. He really is a terrorist and wants to defend terrorism.
B. He really does hate Americans with a passion.
C. He is using this as a coverup to draw our attention away from something else he is doing to hurt us.
D. All of the above, and possibly more we haven't seen yet.

The solution is a simple two-step process. Abort Obama and all his minions, and then replace Congress with Americans who believe in the Constitution and what's best for the country.

"TOO MANY Democrats and Independents

BELIEVE that Republicans are for the rich and that just doesn't sit well with the majority of Americans!!"

.
True bledsoe, but if our kids were taught rational thinking and logic that wouldn't be the case. Instead, they get twelve years of baby-sitting and liberal indoctrination and are then turned loose on the taxpayers.

Only those with a strong parental influence even stand a chance.

Our schools have become little more than a breeding ground for under informed and under educated blue collar workers who look to the government for guidance and direction in every facet of their adult lives.
