I am sitting here chuckling. Forgive me, but that has been my recent response when listening to Obama’s speechifying. I am somewhat surprised at my recent response to his outlandish rhetoric, but he makes such a mockery of his very words, of America, capitalism, etc… that he is, invariably, comical. I have come a long way from when I would listen with trepidation and fear for our nation, so under his spell was America. But he is a clown. And folks, if they listen, can’t help but see it.
I listen now to his speech on immigration, lecturing us, yet again, on what America is … as if he had a clue, his contempt for us is so palpable. As if he had any respect for American exceptionalism, individual rights, entrepreneurship, privacy… As if he had a clue as to why legal immigrants come here — to escape tyrants like him.
He is reciting Emma Lazarus’s poem “The New Colossus,” which is engraved at the base of the statue of liberty, and he thinks is somehow making history — how can you not bust a gut? He prides himself on being post-American.
I understand why he must ram immigration through now. And why he is taking this on now after destroying the American healthcare system. He has no shot of re-election without an illegal base. It is his only motive, but I digress.
I want to know why the executive in chief has not been holed up in a war room 24 hours/7 days a week for the past 72 days with the finest scientific, oceanographic, energy, etc., minds, to solve the oil crisis.
This is a catastrophe of unfathomable proportions, the decades-long repercussions of which have not yet begun to be understood or calculated. Why isn’t Obama attached at the hip to BP executives and every oil specialist in such matters, working on the “leak” until it is fixed? Why weren’t the best brains in NASA brought in — as opposed to Obama’s redirecting their efforts to “help Muslim countries”?
What about the Gulf? What about those people, those communities? Whole swaths of coastline, entire towns, counties may face evacuation.
Why are the images being hidden from view? Why are folks prohibited from certain areas? Why isn’t there wall-to-wall on-scene coverage, as there was of the Valdez oil spill — which looks lilliputian next to this Obama disaster?

Perhaps launching a pre-emptive strike before yet another dismal jobs report comes out Friday, President Obama blasted Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner, proclaiming himself “stunned” at how “out of touch” the Ohio Republican is.
But Republicans charged Obama was distorting Boehner’s comments to distract voters from a troubled economy.
“The president was in a city with 14 percent unemployment and he talked about ants, rather than jobs?” Rep. Boehner answered in an e-mail to Newsmax Wednesday afternoon. “How out of touch can you get?”
The sharp exchange had its origins in remarks Boehner made to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review regarding financial reforms purportedly intended to avoid another economic meltdown. Boehner criticized the proposals as overly burdensome to business.
“This is killing an ant with a nuclear weapon,” Boehner told the newspaper. “There are faults in our regulatory system, some in terms of transparency, most as a result of ineffective enforcement by the bureaucracy who have no idea what these financial products look like today. That could’ve been fixed, but that’s not what we have here.”
