Fact-Checking Site Proves Just How Good President Obama Has been For America.

So When Republicans Say That President Obama Has Been The “Worst President In History,” They Are Clearly Throwing Red-Meat To Their Uninformed, Brainwashed Gullible Crowd!

 

[Source Forward Progress]

Following His annual State of the Union speech, many Republicans have been quite critical of the supposed” arrogance” President Obama displayed while giving his address. Then again, what’s new? Republicans have been trying to paint the President as arrogant and “out of touch” for years.

 

But with all recent SOTU address speeches, Fact-Checking Organizations usually work overtime in an attempt to investigate whether or not what the President said during his speech was factually correct. And this year was no different.

 

And when it comes to the “Truth-O-Meter” over at Politifact, President Obama’s SOTU scored extremely high marks for accuracy and truth.

 

When he said that America is number one in the wind power, that was rated as “Mostly True” with the only caveat being that China technically has the capacity to produce more wind power, but we convert more of it into electricity.

 

Then there was when the President said we are creating more jobs than at any other time since 1999, Politifact rated that 100 percent “True.” We all remember 1999, right? You know, the last time we had a Democrat in the White House.

FACT CHECKING ORGANAZATIONS PROVES OBAMA GOOD FOR USA

Buoyant In Defeat, President Obama Ascends To The Mountaintop To Throw Thunderbolts At Republicans [Maureen Dowd NYT]

WASHINGTON — THE talk up in Boston is all about deflation while the talk down here is all about inflation.

 

Our sleek, techie president, whose battery dies faster than an iPhone’s, was fully charged Tuesday night for the State of the Union.

 

He was so puffed up, with such a bristling sense of self, that it was hard to believe this was the same guy who spent the last year clenched like a fist, beset by ISIS, beheadings and Ebola, shunned by his own party and slammed by the other party in the fall election.

 

The murmur went up from grateful Democrats gathered at the Capitol: “Wow, he’s got a pulse.”

 

Proving once again that he is a different kind of cat, Barack Obama is oddly pumped by his party’s defeat. Even in the House chamber, surrounded by hundreds of people and watched by millions, he seemed to delight in his detachment as he laid down his own markers to drive up his own numbers.

 

He doesn’t mind splendid isolation. He really thinks it’s splendid. He’s free to revert to being the consummate outsider who doesn’t see himself in the context of a system.

 

He likes the game better when he’s up against an opposing team. To him, Harry Reid was as big a problem as Mitch McConnell.

 

Now it’s easier for him to see who he is and where he stands vis-à-vis the Republicans because he doesn’t have to make intellectual compromises or negotiate the jagged shoals of the old-school Democratic Party. Now he can define himself against modern conservatives such as Rand Paul and Scott Walker.

 

President Obama feels he will be able to finally float above it all, more singular and more interesting and more separate, debating enlightened progressive topics like criminal justice reform and child care infrastructure while those off-kilter conservatives fight it out for 2016.

 

Unlike F.D.R., Obama was not determined to give Americans heart and courage at times of crisis. Instead, his White House tended to take on the coloration of his funks and the clouds spread worldwide.

 

He only began to really brag on the economy Tuesday night, when he felt certain of the numbers, rather than before the midterms, when it might have helped his party. He could have done a better job all along explaining where we stood and where we were hopefully headed. As one top White House official says about the Obama inner circle, “They’d rather be right than win.”

 

He’s alone on the stage — always his preferred setting. As an isolato, he can say what he thinks and define himself on his own terms. He can ascend to the mountaintop and ignore us when we pester him to come down.

He doesn’t have to negotiate with Republicans anymore. He doesn’t have to stroke Democrats anymore. He doesn’t have to hawk himself to voters anymore. He isn’t concerned about Hillary, as he yanks the party to the left. He has forged no lasting links to foreign leaders. And he can have the “vacation from the press” that he told NBC News’s Chuck Todd he yearns for.

 

“Barry got his groove back,” as Larry Wilmore, the droll host of Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show,” put it.

 

We got the guy we’ve been yearning for only when he was able to blow us all off. He can finally do and say whatever he wants.

 

One Democrat who saw Obama in the White House said the president was so buoyant he had an air of “senioritis.”

 

It seemed a shame, the Democrat said, that Obama couldn’t have a third term, now that he was, at long last, fired up and ready to go. Of course, if there was a third term, he would be waiting another four years to show the mojo.

 

Thrilled to sidestep the press, he felt liberated enough, even as Yemen spiraled, to go on YouTube and make his case to the appealing GloZell Green, a YouTube star wearing glowing green lipstick who got famous eating cereal out of a bathtub.

 

Remarkably, The One has ended up in the same place the unpopular W. found himself at the end of his two terms: casting his lot with history.

 

Now that it’s all about him, he doesn’t get languid and reflective. He rolls up his sleeves and crisscrosses the country.

 BUOYANT OBAMA JAN 24 15

 

At the State of the Union, a President Outgunned in Congress Is Still Combative [NYT]

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2015 by sheriffali

The circumstances facing President Obama as he delivered his State of the Union address Tuesday night could not have seemed less promising: a presidency with only two years left to get anything done in a Congress that is now totally in the control of a party that has routinely ignored his pleas for cooperation. So he chose wisely to send a simple, dramatic message about economic fairness, about the fact that the well-off — the top earners, the big banks, Silicon Valley — have done just great, while the middle and working classes remain dead in the water. His remedy: skim from the rich and redistribute to those below, while deploying other weapons to raise wages and increase jobs.

 

He did not frame the debate over inequality as starkly as many economists have, preferring instead to talk about the virtues of “middle-class economics.” But he came close. “It’s now up to us to choose who we want to be over the next 15 years, and for decades to come,” he said. “Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well? Or will we commit ourselves to an economy that generates rising incomes and chances for everyone who makes the effort?”

Mr. Obama knows his prospects of getting Congress to agree are less than zero; Republicans dismissed his ideas before he even voiced them. That does not make them irrelevant. Mr. Obama was speaking not just to the present but to the future, to the 2016 presidential elections and even beyond. By simply raising the plight of the middle class (and, looming behind it, the larger issue of economic inequality), he has firmly inserted issues of economic fairness into the political debate. Hillary Rodham Clinton or whomever the Democrats nominate cannot ignore them now. Even Republicans, disinclined to raise taxes on top-tier earners, may find attractive the idea of doing something for those in the middle.

BARACK OBAMA SOTU JAN 20 15

Misogynist Republicans Must Have Serious Fear Of Vaginas; GOP Congress Passed 5 Bills In Three Days To Restrict Women’s Rights. They must think Vaginas have teeth!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2015 by sheriffali

What is really wrong with these lunatics that the uninformed, ignorant, uneducated, brainwashed are not only voting to put them in Office, but they vote to keep them in Office.

 

Now that the Republicans Control Both Houses of Congress and considering they haven’t done anything for 95% of the American people or America in the past six [6] years, one would think they would pass Jobs Bill, Veterans Benefits Bill, Infrastructure, Minimum Wage and Bills that would benefit the Working Class, Students, Poor and the Elderly. But that is not what they have done in their first week and now four days into their second week.

 

They have spent time and Money passing Bills that have no chance of becoming Law with the President promise to Veto any and all Bills that are not in the Interest of America or its people. However, they have passed Keystone, five [5] Abortion Bills, a Bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security with an Amendment to repeal President Obama’s Immigration Executive Orders signed in 2012 and 2014. They have also passed a Bill to defund Obamacare.

 

Perhaps, just perhaps, we need Laws on the Books that if Congress takes Money under false pretenses, they should be charged with a Felony and mandatory Prison time. Such as was when Debtors Law Existed. Perhaps one day in the near future “We the people would have an opportunity again to have a Government by the People and for the People.” At the moment the Republican Party is one branch of the Government that is for only 5% of the People.

GOP SCARED OF VAGINAS

Tom Hanks Supports President Obama’s Two Year Free College Tom Said “I Owe It All To Community College.”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2015 by sheriffali

President Obama hopes to make two years of free community college accessible for up to nine million Americans. I’m guessing the new Congress will squawk at the $60 billion price tag, but I hope the idea sticks, because more veterans, from Iraq and Afghanistan this time, as well as another generation of mothers, single parents and workers who have been out of the job market, need lower obstacles between now and the next chapter of their lives. High school graduates without the finances for a higher education can postpone taking on big loans and maybe luck into the class that will redefine their life’s work. Many lives will be changed.

 

Chabot College is still in Hayward, though Mr. Coovelis, Ms. Fitzgerald and Mr. Kennedy are no longer there. I drove past the campus a few years ago with one of my kids and summed up my two years there this way: “That place made me what I am today.”

GOP AGAINST 95 PERCENT OF AMERICANS

Criticizing President Obama By The Media And Some Citizens Have Taken Us Into New Heights Of National Disgrace…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2015 by sheriffali

Outraged over President Obama not attending Paris March is misplaced. Terrorist killed 12 on January 7; killed 1 January 8; French Authorities killed 3 Terrorists on January 9 and another on the run; France made a Public announcement January 10 that Terrorists Cells have been activated; Paris March set for January 11. Just how do you get the President of the United States amongst one million plus people without risking his life and that of many others?

 

All of the Media that are owned by six [6] Corporations really no longer report the News, the Media most of the time manufacture garbage and pass it on to the uninformed, ignorant, uneducated, brainwashed, hate-mongers, bigots, prejudiced and to some degree, racists, as though it is fact. Jake Tapper of CNN went as far as stating that he is ashamed of his country.

 

Despite France having suffered severe loss from Religious Fanatics the French Government including the Opposition and the French Citizens maintained their dignity in their time of grief. But not here in America where the right and left wing Nut Jobs go the extra mile to indulge in phantasmagoric rationales and internecine deluge, embarrassing themselves, but most importantly embarrassing the United States that view America as a National and International Disgrace.

 

President Obama has become the Piñata of senseless criticism, especially by Republican Legislators and their dumbfounded Trolls on Social Media that have allowed hate to usurp common sense and every ounce of decency from them.

 

President Obama from the time he took Office on January 20, 2009, both he and his Administration have been fighting Terrorists every day for the past six years. They have had some successes and some setbacks. What most people fail to realize is that Terrorists live for Terror, it is “Human Wickedness” and you can’t kill that with a Gun. And in that regard, perhaps, just perhaps, the world need to step back and reexamine the “cause” of this most disgusting symptom of killers, rapists and everything despicable to human society.

 

America and other Nations paroxysm that has totally spun out of control along with Lex Talionis for the past 13 years, really haven’t resolved the world’s Terrorism, if anything, is has gotten worst. I admit, I don’t have the answer!
