NEROBAMA: Fiddling while the world burns

2014_06 Poll Obama handling foreign policy

Poll Question 16. Now not thinking about whether you agree or disagree with President Obama’s policies and programs, but thinking about the competence and effectiveness of his administration, how competent would you say the Obama administration is in its role of managing the federal government?

Obama (June 2014 aftermath of invasion of Iraq) vs. Bush (March 2006 aftermath of Hurricane Katrina)

  • Very competent: 11% vs. 14%
  • Somewhat competent: 39% vs. 39%
  • Not too competent: 19% vs. 22%
  • Not competent at all: 31% vs. 24%

Note: When looking at these numbers, factor in the scathingly unfair media coverage Bush suffered through in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina vs. the lapdog slobbering Obama has enjoyed since before his first day as a presidential candidate.

For example, the media repeatedly pushed the “Bush doesn’t care” meme by reprinting the photo of him looking at the devastation from high above in Air Force One.

They also screamed about how he went to his ranch for two days, which no “compassionate president” would do.  How much have you ever heard about the fact that while Iraq burned, Obama went fund-raising and golfing in Palm Springs? Or that he played cards with his peeps during the bin Laden raid? Or that NOBODY KNOWS where he was or what he was doing while the embassy in Benghazi was under armed assault?

After Katrina, the media harped on the fact that Bush didn’t make his first ground visit until two days after the hurricane hit, as if this was a sign that he didn’t care, rather than what it really was – a sign that (a) POTUS doesn’t go places until the Secret Service ensures it is safe and (b) a visit by POTUS is disruptive to humanitarian and rescue operations. Overall, Bush made more than half a dozen on-the-ground visits … while the media continued to reprint the AF1 photo.

After Katrina, the media also harped on the pathetic response by national government, which was always “BOOSH’s fault!”, ignoring the fact that (a) disaster relief is a state function and that (b) the then-Democrat government in Louisiana and New Orleans were the truly incompetent and obstructive factors in delaying relief.

Now … given all that … isn’t it EXTRAORDINARY that Obama’s “competence” numbers are now WORSE?!

And then Hillary said …

2014_06 17 Hillary Your mind terrorizes me

Added by PP

June 17, 2014: Asked about guns during her CNN town hall Tuesday, Hillary Clinton stated, “We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”

How many things are wrong with that statement? Let me count the ways.

1. She is lying about whose opinion is actually in the MAJORITY.

Rasmussen Polls found 65% see gun rights as protection against tyranny and 74% support the right of average citizens to own guns.

2. She is smearing 2d Amendment supporters as TERRORISTS.

Do I need to elaborate on how evil this is?

3. She is actually advocating that the government be somehow given control over our THOUGHTS.

“We cannot let … people … hold a viewpoint.” Seriously?

Matt Walsh is a wonderful writer, but I think he really out-did himself with this one. He got a snarky email claiming the Bible proves that Jesus was a liberal and Satan was a conservative. Walsh blasts every point out of the water with Bible-based evidence.
