CNN Obama Biden Run 2016

CNN reported last night that President Obama has given his blessing to a 2016 presidential run for Vice President Joe Biden.

This news isn’t completely unexpected but as Legal Insurrection readers know, it will change the landscape of the Democratic Party’s 2016 primary, especially if Elizabeth Warren is involved.

From CNN’s report...

Obama’s first trip to Kenya since becoming president has highlighted the disappointment that many Africans feel in his presidency.  While President Bush earns high praise and achieved a great deal in Africa, particularly with regard to his efforts fighting AIDS, Obama . . . not so much.

One one hand, it is comforting to know President Obama can target the enemy and use American resources to counter it.

On the other hand, it is very disturbing when that enemy is . . . climate change.

Obama is acting upon his delusion that the biggest global security threats involve weather patterns...

As a direct result of Obama’s amateurish, quasi-idealistic, and completely ideological failings in Iraq, we will almost certainly end up sending ground troops back in order to undo the damage wrought by the failed Obama doctrine.

Obama knows this, of course, and his plan is to run out the clock rather than...

Ron Fournier at National Journal has written an extraordinary article, “Republicans Are Wrong About Obama’s American Exceptionalism,” defending Obama’s vision of America as “modern and honest,” as “Reagan-plus.”

We, of course, are neither modern nor honest; indeed, we’re frightened because the country...

When he withdrew troops from Iraq, Obama himself proclaimed, “we are leaving behind a sovereign, stable, and self-reliant Iraq.”  That was in 2011.  Flash forward to now, and Iraq is none of those things; indeed, Iraq is now an ISIS strong-hold, part of their declared caliphate.

Throughout Obama’s presidency, we’ve heard him...

Obama has famously (infamously?) long been enamored of the idea of fundamentally transforming America, and one of the foundational aspects of American culture that he has in his sights is the Second Amendment and Americans’ firmly held belief in their right to keep and bear arms.

It would be so very transformative, you know. Hope and change:

“If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country,” Obama said, calling it “potentially transformative.” Not only that, Obama said, but universal voting would “counteract money more than anything.”…

Now that Giuliani has opened the door by questioning Obama’s love of country, perhaps the topic of Obama’s past connections to Communism, Ayers, Wright, and Alinsky could be reopened, heard, and understood by more of the public for what they might actually signify.

In 2008 those reports were widely dismissed...

Yesterday Prof Jacobson rightly assessed Jeffrey Goldberg’s The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here as describing a crisis “in Obama-Israel relations.”

Although the White House has offered a disavowal of the profane insult made by one of Goldberg’s sources, the full substance of his remarks needs to be rebutted.
