      OBAMA DERANGEMENT SYNDROME

      BY NANCEGREGGS, ON AUGUST 11TH, 2013

      ———————————–

      If Obama makes a speech about a specific issue, he’s just spewing pretty words. If Obama doesn’t speak on a specific issue, he’s trying to hide something. Or he should have spoken about something else entirely, because when he gets specific about one issue, that means he’s ignoring all of the really important issues he should be speaking about – those issues being whatever it was he didn’t mention.

      If Obama did it, it must have been the wrong thing to do. When it turns out to have been the right thing to do, then Obama never did it. And if he did do it, he did it the wrong way. It was too little, too late – or it was too much, too soon. It went too far – while, at the same time, it didn’t go far enough. And even if it turns out to have been right, it’s still wrong.
      .
      .
      To hear those with ODS tell the tale, Obama is too stupid to know that the Republicans are not on his side, too dumb to know he’s in over his head, and way too idiotic to govern a nation. The fact that, under his guidance, the economy has improved, job numbers are up, and the deficit is being reduced at an amazing pace is just – you guessed it! – “dumb luck.” Makes one wonder how such a dumbass was somehow smart enough to get elected – twice.

        The MSM and the people who control it make up a very small percentage of the population. The MAJORITY spoke in 2008 and 2012 (and would speak again in 2016 if we could). PBO’s critics and enemies all seem like miserable people, filled with hate, greed, bile, insecurity and jealousy. People who support PBO are the complete opposite, just look at the pictures of the crowds at PBO’s appearances. Light will overcome the darkness.

    Every day I love President Obama more than the day before. Didn’t think it was possible.

    WHAT A PRESIDENT!

    I just got home from annual eye exam & my vision is still a little blurry, but I walked in and turned on the television and there was POTUS.

    OMG!

    May God bless and keep all involved safe.

    The president’s statement was unequivocal about not escalating US involvement in Iraq beyond protecting Americans serving there and helping those stranded. On the other hand, there’s no doubt his words will be twisted and misreported and there will be cries that it’s not enough or too much. PBO said he had consulted with Congress, but Republicans will, once again, claim amnesia. Aside from immediate water and food relief, the people stranded on Mt. Sinai need a more permanent solution and I hope that’s part of the plan somewhere.

    • August 7, 2014 at 10:07 pm

      I don’t see how anyone (even GOP and their propaganda machine, the MSM) could fault the President.

      MSM/GOP gets what they want (action!)

      The US can not in good conscious let the Kurds down, who were so helpful during the GWBush Adm and got little to show for it.

      You know that the reports of children dying of dehydration was unbearable for our President.

      I cannot believe these simple minded devils are still fixated on the word “folks”. Its like “folks” is the new “Barry” (another supposed slight that never made sense to me). Code words racists use to hate on PBO. What sad and pathetic people. We should be so lucky if GWB’s worst sin was saying the word “folks” during a press conference. ODS is real.

    I’m so glad the President took this action. I’d love to see ISIS or whatever they are called bombed to smithereens but I trust him to decide on the best course. And helping out those poor refugees. What misery Bush and Cheney brought to that country…..

    I’ve been in a sour mood recently and realized it’s because there is such hell in the world and it all falls on my President. We just have to stay strong, keep on supporting him, win him a better Congress. I feel better when I take action so I’ll be canvassing for a Dem in an open (previously Repub) seat in northern Virginia this weekend.

    Laura Rozen and some others are going on and on about the Pentagon said and the Pentagon lied… I mean really, if any of these media folk had given GWB one eighth the scrutiny they are giving PBO over every damn little trivial thing, we would not have had a dumb war in Iraq in the first place.

      Dave Chappelle’s “Black Bush” skit was so on point it should be required viewing for all Americans. Your comment brought home to me how prescient he was in that skit. Life is imitating art.

      Bobfr, I thought the same thoughts: “Nice touch using State DINING Room.

      Bobfr, you are such a dedicated and very brilliant writer and thinker. I appreciate you so much as a great person who knows his history and it is truly an honor to just be standing in your presence as a TOD family member. Keep writing your letters and sending your messages to the President and to his team and Cabinet members. You are being heard. Please do not stop. Your actions will make their marks for generations to come on the goodness side of history. Thank you so much, Bobfr.HZ

    It wasn’t Obama who put that sorry ass Prime Minister Maliki in charge. It wasn’t Obama who cause the mess in the first place.
