Amateurs

Amateurs

While studiously avoiding and evading any investigation of Barack Obama’s “youth” (i.e. the period prior to his running for President) or devoting resources to any of the many scandals (selling guns to Mexican drug lords, politicizing along racial lines the Justice Department, etc.) which would have been front page day after day in another administration, WaPo devoted months and resources to investigating what Mitt Romney did in high school.

But WaPo is acting like an amateur.  This should have dropped the day before the Republican National Convention or a major debate; or worst case, four days before the election.

To drop the “Romney was mean in high school” story now shows that WaPo has lost a little of its touch.

Speaking of amateurs, Bill Clinton thinks Obama is one:

Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of  state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,

“The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging  her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in  Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.

The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism  of the president, the author said.

“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an  amateur.”

The withering criticism is incredible, given the fact that Bill Clinton is  actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election.

But according to the book, Bill Clinton unloaded on Obama and pressed Hillary  to run against her boss during a gathering in the ex-president’s home office in  Chappaqua last August that included longtime friends, Klein said.

“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating .  . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.

I disagree.  Obama’s no amateur.  He plays the “crisis” thing like it’s the last fiddle left on earth.

It’s worked so far.  Even if not a single additional law is passed, Obama has the authority via Obamacare and Dodd-Frank to do pretty much whatever he wants to almost every aspect of your life  via regulation and Executive Order if he gets reelected.

Julia needs Obama now more than ever, and she can afford to donate to his campaign, because she’s not going to have to pay her own way through life.

“Obama has the authority via Obamacare and Dodd-Frank to do pretty much whatever he wants to almost every aspect of your life via regulation and Executive Order…”

Which is why he cannot be re-elected.

Which is ALSO why these monstrosities of BIG GOVERNMENT cannot be left on the books.

IF those TWO things remain undone, our only choice is to say NO!, or capitulate.

Helluvadeal.

“I disagree. Obama’s no amateur.”

I agree with you. “Amateur” is the wrong term for Obama. Clinton, being not only a blinkered democrat but a politically syphilitic degenerate slowly going blind, can’t see Obama’s twisted “professionalism”.

Everything Obama does is according to the plan.

    Obama may do everything according to the plan … but it’s not his plan.

    Just as Rush says about the Clintoons, with Dear Leader nothing is coincidence.
    Rush also says to follow the money.

    Take those two together and you can understand what’s going on–with Willard, the Hildebeast and with Zippy.

Just think of all the press WAPO would get if they obtained and published Obama’s college records. They won’t, however, they are his lap dog.

Professor J, is right on the mark. Obama IS NO amateur and neither is Hillary Clinton.

Bill, isn’t to shabby at this stuff, either.

“Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” –Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

“Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project…. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.”

At first I discounted the idea that this whole gay marriage announcement was staged … but once this article came out it looks more and more likely …
this article would have taken months to put together, for it to drop the day after Obama flips, which came a day after NC voted No on gay marriage stinks to high heaven …

so lets see how Obama has managed to alienate some critical constituencies …

Seniors … crushing Medicare Advantage with ObamaCare

Independents … 1 trillion plus annual deficits

Coal States … the EPA

People of every religion … HHS mandates

Young people … no jobs plan

LGBT coalition … he’s now for gay marriage and the states right to ban it

The Military … dramtically increase Tri-Care premiums and gutting the Defense budget

Illegal Ailens … no formal amnesty

Wall Street … evil greedy bastards

Oil Comapnies … see wall Street

Investors … you’ve made enough money

He has forgotten one critical factor in his divide and conquer strategy … many folks are in more than one of these “enemies of the people groups” and see his cynical strategy for what it is …

    Pres. Dog Breath supports gay marriage EXACTLY like he’s shut down GITMO.

    Pwns of the Collective are rushing to give him money.

    Stupid cannot be repaired.

It seems to me Obama has been doing exactly what he wants to do all along. And now this possibility

The planned re-election of Obama, revolutionary style
The Obama administration, including his czars and along with his closets Progressive supporters, are planning a manufactured insurgency against America. He is using the media to his advantage to garner both sympathy and support for his unfinished goals. He is desperately seeking a way to remain in office, even if it means the surreal prospect of an indefinite postponement of elections – if it can be pulled off. So far, he’s got the support of the majority of the DHS “brass” behind him, according to my source.

“They’re power hungry, and they want to remain in charge,” stated this source.

The “surreal” aspect of suspended elections won’t look so surreal when you see any or all of the “trigger points” take place in the not-so-distant future.

I think WJC meant Obama is an amateur not only at governance but also at politics. He beat Hillary in 2008 on the strength of his appeal as the first Black President and beat McCain because of the financial crisis. His current reelection campaign is a mess and would be regarded widely as such if not for the MSM covering for Obama in all things. He is almost laughably vulnerable. However, it is less clear that he would have been vulnerable to a primary challenge. In a Democratic primary, a challenger needs to get to the left — as Teddy did with Carter in 1980, although even then unsuccessfully. Tough job getting to Obama’s left.

The Washington Post hasn’t lost its touch; it’s the media attack coordinator in the White House – no, not the President; one of his flunkies – who has lost their’s … if, that is, they ever had one. When more than one media outlet starts barking, it’s because someone stirred up the dogs. Nearly everyone in the White House is an amateur, not professional and allows their ideological preferences to dictate their behavior. Incompetents, in a word.

On that subject – incompetence – the Romney answer to the “I know what you did last summer!” sort of “gotcha” news is simply this: “When did this supposedly happen?” “Fifty years ago?” “How about you guys and gals start getting after more recent stuff, like what Obama was doing in college and law school and in the Illinois State Senate??” “Is that the best you can do? Pikers!” and change the subject, ignoring the ‘what-is-it?’ thereafter. How to do it? Just ask yourself, “What would Harry Truman’s answer have been?” and give them that. All the campaigning season is going to be filled with these sorts of distractions, just as Ms. Warren’s patently false claim of being a Native American. You have to ask, first, “Who cares?” If the answer is “No one”, then leave it alone and when asked, your answer is, “Who cares?” and move on to your message. Otherwise, you are just playing on the Democrats’ home field and letting them set the tempo and keep the initiative.

[…] While Bruno is splashing on the aftershave in anticipation of handsome Johnny nuptials and Romney is making googoo eyes at Bill, Bill is busy giving the skunk eye to Barack. It’s Amateur Hour says Bill. […]

You can’t apply the word “amateur” across the board. Barack Obama is a journeyman wheeler-dealer, spender of money and re-writer of history. When it comes to lying, he’s a consummate professional.

He’s still an amateur, though. From his crass personal style to his obvious ignorance on many subjects it’s obvious he’s an amateur…a pretty boy in an empty suit doing the bidding of Soros and the Bilderbergers.

Yes, he’s an amateur…and a damn dangerous one at that.
