In denial to the bitter end


He came in in denial, and he goes out in denial.

Poor barack obama is a failure at the one thing he wanted more than anything else- to turn this country into a progressive socialist utopia in which everyone has an equal outcome despite their lack of contributions or effort. In other words, everyone would be equally miserable. But it wasn’t his fault that he failed at this- nothing is ever his fault. The fault instead belongs to Rush Limbaugh.

In tonight’s NBC Dateline special, as President Obama tonight discussed his frustrations with Republicans for not being more willing to work with him over the past eight years, he once again invoked Rush Limbaugh and Fox News to discuss that very issue.

Because while on the one hand there was a “tactical” decision not to work with him, Obama told Lester Holt, there was also a pressure they had to deal with:

“The ability of Republican leaders to rile up their base, helped along by folks like Rush Limbaugh and some commentators on Fox News, I think created an environment in which Republican voters would punish Republicans for cooperating with me.”

The thing is, obama’s idea of “cooperating” was a simple one- do exactly as he demands. He did signal it essentially from day one:

“I won.” 
But obama never came to grips with a simple reality- he was elected President, not King. obama’s fellow democrats were emboldened by the new King’s attitude and dismissive of their colleagues:

But perhaps taking a cue from Obama’s “I won” line when Democrats were asked if they were concerned about Republicans blocking the package, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had a swift one-word answer: “No.”

obama’s idea of cooperation was to completely ignore the opinions of the opposition:

“We expressed our concerns about some of the spending that’s being proposed in the House bill,” House Minority Leader John Boehner said after meeting with Obama.

“How can you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives?” Boehner asked. “How does that stimulate the economy?”

Right then and there it was easy to see that the stimulus was going to fix nothing. It was, however, the beginning of the Social Justice Warrior Presidency. All other concerns- national security, the debt, the economy- all were framed around and be subjugated to the SJW theme that would be the obama presidency.

Rush Limbaugh and Fox News weren’t the fawning sycophants that rest of the media became and obama resented it.

nyt Capture
Not only did obama treat Fox News like the “enemies” he saw in his fellow Americans, he sought to try to censor the press:

For going on seven years we have learned three things about President Obama: 1) He loves the poor so much he continues to create more of them. 2) He loves the poor so much he does everything in his power to keep them poor. 3) He doesn’t see the opposition as loyal, but as bad players — his enemy. This is especially true of Fox News, which Obama ripped as anti-poor bigots during a Wednesday afternoon summit on poverty.

We’re used to this Obama, the forever-partisan who has never seen himself as president of all the people but only of those who worship him.

What was most revealing about the president’s comments was his expressed desire to “change how the media reports.”

Speaking of Fox News, the poor, and the way GOP leaders think, Obama said, [W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues.”

All because Fox would not succumb to the idol worship. What became scary was the media’s insistence on swallowing whatever obama said. obama said what he wanted everyone to believe and not what was. Too many Americans listened and then just repeated the words instead of cutting through the verbal fog.

This is not to say obama is without accomplishments. He did, as Sam Stein said, preside over the destruction of the democrat party. There’s no denying it. And for that, we can say “thank you.”

Dems need to remember that we “won” this time and to get over it. All this reported fake news has got to end at some point.

“The ability of Republican leaders to rile up their base, helped along by folks like Rush Limbaugh and some commentators on Fox News, I think created an environment in which Republican voters would punish Republicans for cooperating with me.”

That’s called the “will of the people”, you arrogant idiot.

I wonder how many times any others have, as I have, questioned those who parrot the “Fox News lies” accusations to provide examples. Ever have anyone actually PROVIDE some? ONE?

Fox and a few others will present the news as it is, not as they WANT it to be and this is not permitted in the liberal world.

But all the polls have his approval rating at 50 plus percent. The same polls that his sheep pointed to when they told us Hillary was going to win a landslide victory and that the dems were going to take back Congress. Imagine that. Bush’s approval rating was around 30% when he left office His party lost big time. Obama’s party suffered even bigger losses and these bozos are trying tell us his approval rating is over 50%. Fake news. Fake polls. Fake President.

@another vet: all the polls have his approval rating at 50 plus percent. The same polls that his sheep pointed to when they told us Hillary was going to win a landslide victory and that the dems were going to take back Congress.

It so depends on how this question is asked.
I was one of those polled once about how popular Obama was.
The question involved his children, his even-temperedness (no-drama Obama) & his use of proper English even.
The skew of the question would have made me seem a monster if I hadn’t approved of him.
I said I approved.
But, had the question been about his policies I would NOT have.

So, yes, polls are skewed.

@another vet: Liberals like Obama. They dislike his policies and record. They are not smart enough to put the two together. They are lured to celebrity like a moth to flame and they have made Obama a celebrity just like they made the Kardashians celebrities.

@Nanny G: The fake news sources that produced those polls got exactly what they wanted in their results so when they tried to play stupid saying they had to “figure out” where they went wrong, I just shook my head and laughed at their dishonesty. They are all pieces of garbage.

@Bill… Deplorable Me: That doesn’t say much for our society considering the percentage of it that they make up.

obama’s idea of cooperation was to completely ignore the opinions of the opposition:

No he weaponized depts of the administration to silence them as best he could, IRS.
How many good military elite could stomach his crap and retired or were fired? partial list
The only way to get fired under Obama was to be military.

OT: isn’t John Lewis the person that was concerned that Guam would turn over?

@old guy: That was a different moronic Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson expressed a fear during a hearing on March 25, 2010 that the island of Guam could capsize if too many military personnel were stationed there. I think they all have the same IQ all the Dems that is.

kitt #10. Thanks for the correction and I agree with your comments.

@old guy: Now Lewis is the guy that said if you cant get beaten by em, join em.

How bout dem Packers!

kitt: We have come along way since that 1924 photo. Although BHO set us back a bit.

Very Happy about the Pack. Had my cheese head on during the game.

Any American over 50 who doesn’t know who John Lewis is probably doesn’t know what today is—and doesn’t care..
It is a day to celebrate a great American



@old guy: I love my extra games Super Bowl is nice but even 1 bonus Sunday is all right with me.

@Richard Wheeler:

Any American over 50 who doesn’t know who John Lewis is probably doesn’t know what today is—and doesn’t care..

So… what? He gets to say any stupid thing he wants and any criticism of his stupid statement is unfair and… dare I say it… racist?

Why do liberals need shields to politically protect them from the results of their stupidity?

@Richard Wheeler: Can you enlighten me on Mr. Lewiss’ great accomplishments for civil rights, I say he is a fraud and riding on a reputation for 50 years. MLK yes a great man, non-violent. Trump was right this man needs to work on his district the 10th most violent in the nation, crime riddled ect.
Please correct me, how does this guy rise above having his opinion being questioned? Not saying he is a bad person I dont know him personally there must be great legislation that he himself crafted that elevates him.

@kitt: “A fraud” Even your new found beloved, thin skinned twitter king, refrains from calling him that—I hope.
Spell his name correctly and google him—His credentials are long and impressive.
Go Pack.

@Richard Wheeler: He should be famous his accomplishments common knowledge! And you tell me to google it cause you dont know?
You know like Mother Teressa, Ghandi, Reagan ,JFK, Jack the ripper, Ghengis khan, Hitler everyone knows some of what they have done.
No one is above question unless they have 3 verified miracles.
What a game Sunday whew!

@Richard Wheeler:

@Bill- Deplorable Me</ Did I say I agreed with Lewis?

Then explain what being a “civil rights icon” has to do with any of this?

Lewis questioned Trump’s legitimacy. Trump, RT and others questioned Obama’s legitimacy. All are wrong.
#14 correction things not thinks

Question Why does Trump have this need to madly tweet?

@Richard Wheeler: Hillary questioned Obama’s legitimacy. There were many aspects of his past that were locked away, including his birth certificate; are you saying some suspicion was unwarranted?

I never bought into the birther conspiracy but I can at least understand the cloud of doubt that surrounded it. However, no one has yet offered anything that indicates any influence the Russians had on any aspect of the election, yet he is deemed “illegitimate”.

I find it further amusing that as so many bitter, whiny liberal sore losers spew their vile hatred, they claim they cannot support Trump because of his divisiveness and hate. Really? The ONLY people (and I apply that term loosely) spreading hate and divisiveness are Democrats.

The left is proving just how unnecessary they are to have around.

@Bill- Deplorable Me:

The left is quick to rest on the meme that Trump’s Presidency will somehow be illegitimate because they want to believe the Russians effected the election negatively upon hillary.

What if hillary had won, GOD forbid, would her presidency be illegitimate given the lefts belief the Russians did effect the election?

The answer is no because if hillary had won, there would have been no discussion regarding Russian interference….

@Bill- Deplorable Me: “spew vile hatred,” you say.

Bill When it comes to “spewing vile hatred” nobody does it better than you.Take a few moments and read your own posts.

Honorable mention to Spewing vile Plover but think you’d agree HE/SHE makes no sense at all.

Hold on— Just read RogerD’S post #13 on “John Lewis starts a fight—” He’s taking “spewing vile hatred” to a new level. Who’s gonna top him?

@Richard Wheeler: Oh, so identifying left wing divisiveness,lies and hatefulness is hateful? Well, I do hate it. I despise it. You liberals fielded the WORST possible candidate and all the liberal bias in the nation (and that’s a lot) could not pass her off as Presidential material and you blame Russians… though NO ONE can explain HOW it affected Hillary, Senate, House and governor races.

If your tears were not so saline, you liberals could solve California’s drought.

@Bill- Deplorable Me: We’re doing just fine out here in California–getting plenty of rain. Wouldn’t live in Texas if you paid me—a summer in Dallas was worse than Viet Nam.
You certainly make clear your hatred of fellow American Liberals—They’re not going away–Trump’s wild ride will keep em busy.
Putin checked in today re DT “Don’t know him”
Trump’s approval at historical lows–good news is– only direction is up–we hope.

@Richard Wheeler: Hateful, racist, misogynistic liberals.

@Bill- Deplorable Me: I rest my case. Enjoy the day.
Go Pack

@Richard Wheeler: John Lewis is a black racist now regardless of what he may have been in the past. Frankly he is just acting like many Democrats in denial of the reality that Donald Trump is President Elect because he won the election.

@Richard Wheeler: Trumps approval rating is about as valid as the Presidential Polls that had hilldabeast winning in a landslide. The reality of the popularity poll is that on 24% of those polled defined themselves as Republicans. Think that may have made a difference?

@Common Sense: He won the election with about 41% of REGISTERED voters. He makes no NEW friends when he confronts Lewis and Brennan and badmouths NATO.
Doc You are with the supporters that would “defend him if he stood in the middle of 5th Avenue and shot someone.” His words.
He’s gonna do it his way, with his people—the majority don’t like it.—–he loves confrontation.—stay tuned more will be revealed.

There was NO choice in this election. HRC was proven to be a known failure and Donald Trump. I have been more impressed with President Elect Donald Trump than candidate Donald Trump. His cabinet choices have been nothing short of brilliant and when it comes to a Supreme Court Justice I am much more confident that he will pick someone who will adhere to the Constitution versus the political picks that BHB made. This was a key reason to vote Trump. If you remove California from the voting mix then Trump beats HRC in the popular vote as well. You know as well as I that in California there are many illegals who voted for HRC. He is a bit of a political unknown but so was Ronnie the best President in my lifetime. How can you defend HRC and her know failures including her husband getting a hummer in the White House. Obamacare will be history and the wall will be built, I am in favor of both. America is built on choice and is a Republic and therefore Donald Trump IS our next President. It is pathetic to see the Democrats act so childish, makes them look like the sore losers they are.

@Common Sense: I did not support HRC nor do I support DT.
No one was more childish than you DOC when you referenced BHO, Why should it surprise you when others treat your candidate the same way?
Trump is very easy to disparage. His buffoonery is spreading globally.

@Rich Wheeler:

As you know, Trump was not my choice. I stated that here, loud and clear, multiple times. But you act as if he is such a buffoon that we are all going down in flames. Sorry, but as far as buffoonery, it will be almost impossible for Trump to be any worse than Obama.

Just take a look at where we are today. Obamacare cost millions of people the health insurance they not only had, but was happy with (me being one of them); racial relations in the U.S. are lower than they have been since the 50-60’s; Chicago, Baltimore and other large cities are war zones; UAC’s (or, as the government calls them, unaccompanied alien children) flow across our southern border with abandonment and we are now supporting them for the rest of their lives; Russia, China and North Korea laughed at Obama; and Afghanistan is still a war zone and Iraq is now in the hands of ISIS, and as his last slap in the American soldiers face, Bradley Manning has now less than five months to serve for his treason. And I’m sure you don’t want to talk about the national debt.

And one other thing; it is political practice that just as a governor is expected to increase the number of his state officials that are affiliated with his party, the President is also expected to increase the number of elected officials, nation wide, that are affiliated with his party. Obama saw the loss of over 1,000 state held offices during his reign. That’s got to be a record.

Nope, it will be hard for Trump to be such a failure. Wiley Cayote could have done better than Obama.

@retire05:”almost impossible” for Trump to be worse than Obama. He’s working on it.
Welcome back. Trump is doing nothing to assuage the fears of the 6 out of 10 registered voters who disapprove of him.He does this at his own risk—doesn’t seem to care.
The big difference between Trump and Obama is temperament. I realize Trumpists don’t think this an important issue, I DO, and I believe a Majority of American voters concur.
This is a dangerous world and I want intelligent, rational, well informed, and compassionate leaders.

Re BHO I believe his biggest mistake was not bombing Assad when he went over red line.

@Rich Wheeler: 87% of Republicans approve thats his base. Dems, the Meda fanning the flames of fear and division There isn’t a thing Trump can do to make the sheep less fearful. He has met with MLK3rd, other black leaders, has said he would be a president for all people. Do you have any suggestions?

@Rich Wheeler: The big difference between Trump and Obama is ability. Obama has none and Trump is loaded with it. Oh, Obama can campaign, but that’s the end of it. He can’t negotiate, he can’t compromise and he can see no view but his own, which happens to be wrong.

The fears of Trump are based on falsehoods, so how is he going to alieviate them? The only way for those fears to be calmed is for people to examine what they are based on and come to the determination that they are being lied to by liberals.

Any fears based on his ability should at least be eased a bit by his actions so far and his personnel picks. But, the media and this administration keeps up the drone of hate and keeps those fears you worry about alive and burning.

Kitt– I’d suggest he stop acting like a petulant child every time someone rubs his sensitive feathers the wrong way.
It’s not Presidential– respect the office with class and dignity—-get serious –stop the incessant stream of consciousness tweeting. The free press is an important staple of American Democracy–deal with it–they are not going away and the American people expect the Prez and the interact.
SEE THE BIG PICTURE–seek advice and counsel.
Dems are not fanning the fears–he’s doing that on his own.I personally wish him the best
Semper Fi

@Rich Wheeler: Trump will be Trump, an attack from him lowers the value of those attacked, so can they report the news and try not to control someone who is used to running the show, every little thing this guy does is twisted to a negative light. Did you see how CNN questioned MLKIII? All he wanted was a negative comment is that really journalism? Thats the type of stuff that needs to be reformed, thats maybe a polling question. The press no longer controls the narrative. The above example is why.

@kitt: I believe an attack from Trump like the ones against Lewis and Brennan, may make Trump feel good, but actually lowers Trump’s value in the eyes of the MAJORITY of the American people
Re polls 89% of approx 4O% pretty good but he’s around 35% with Indies and 5% with Dems–overall about 40%–Obama going out at 60% approval—gotta be his temperament, class and good humor–can’t be his achievements LOL
BTW Final national polls of Prez. popular vote had HRC up about 4% on DT and she won by about 2.5%–not bad.

@Rich Wheeler: No, apparently “Presidential” is releasing treasonous spies and murdering terrorists from prison. As if there was one shred of doubt, Obama has proven himself to be the worst, most despicable, American-hating President we have ever had.

And you love him.

@Rich Wheeler: 1 Popular vote is moot. Polls are fake, the number I posted came from conservative review.
I hope Obama buys CNN and he can keep up saying how great he is as nobody watches.
I no longer subscribe to cable as I refuse to support all of the fake news channels, everyone of them are controlled by NWO types, and deep state ops.
I much prefer independent news where I find out how much round-up is in my breakfast, including the organic stuff.
How do they get away with this??

@kitt: I’ve always felt sorry for Repubs. They miss great movies and great music because they can’t separate the politics from the art. They often miss traveling to incredible worldwide destinations for political reasons.
Some are able to overcome this mindset. But most seem unable to do so.
Dems just seem to enjoy life more.

Popular vote may be moot but my point was the polls were pretty much spot on.
O’Reilly my favorite but CNN is not going away anytime soon.

@Rich Wheeler: Rich, your comments have about as much validity as the popularity polls you hang your hat on relevant to Trump. This poll was taken by the same folks that predicted HRC would win in an electoral college landslide, these polls only spoke with 24% of those being polled as being Republican, and see what happened. Tell me how many happy Democrats where there be when Trump is Pronounced President of the USA on Friday versus happy Republicans. Your source for information is flawed beyond repair. As far as travel, your data is inaccurate as well. I have worked and traveled to 36 countries, lived in Singapore as an expat, and the Middle East and Northern Africa where included in my territory. Democrats are the saddest bunch of crybaby losers I have ever seen after an election they lost so badly!!

@Rich Wheeler: With the left giving death threats to artists that dont cow tow to their liberal thought pattern who is it that cannot separate politics from arts, Meryl Streep she isnt so good at it is she. All the dems missing the festivities and historic inauguration, boy thats fun and so open minded, in fact they are so open minded their brains fell right out.
The womens March what a joke that is turning out to be, no pro life..ever so inclusive and diverse. Our opinion or off with you!
Where is it we wont travel? Music and movies are per taste, for an example I dont care for rap, heavy metal, techno and there are those that dont like classical, spanish guitar, or oldies.

@Common Sense: They certainly did not lose badly–and there is no question the majority of American voters disapprove of Trump—this could change but we don’t know at this juncture—As mentioned the polls were right on as far as popular vote—Three states very close swung victory to Trump. Trump won because of HRC’S flaws WikiLeaks and Comey’s flip flops. But he won–no question.

KITT and you may be exceptions to the rule—How many Repubs say they pass on great performers like Springsteen or James Taylor eschew movies with DeNiro or Matt Damon.
Won’t go to Paris, Venice or Africa? Politics
I’ve seen it here at FA—haven’t you?

@Rich Wheeler: I would not travel in many areas where they are having issues with Americans targeted for terrorism, I just like to relax enjoy my vacation not be wary the entire trip. There are places everywhere that are not safe, beyond just watch your purse. Hows East LA these days?
