Obama has threatened to veto any bill that comes to his desk that imposes more sanctions on Iran. He certainly can stand up to the Republican controlled congress. He is all hardline on them. Iran doesn’t live up to its side of the bargain re: their nuclear bomb building program. Obama lets them miss deadlines. He extends their negotiations for months on end. They keep working on a bomb and Obama won’t hold them accountable.
Here is my suggestion:
Let congress pass harder sanctions. Sign that bill. Then when the Ayatollah has a fit, send Sec. of State John Kerry and a pop star over to Tehran to sing to him. If James Taylor isn’t available, perhaps Yusuf Islam a.k.a.Cat Stevens could sing Peace Train while holding up the fatwa on Salman Rushdie. John Kerry could kiss the Ayatollah and peace would reign in the world.

Another laundry list of taxes and government giveaways. The world according to Obama. Tax and Spend. We have crested the wave and are recovering. (5 plus years and still not recovered – slowest recovery in modern times.)
So here is the part I really liked. He tells us how we should all play by the rules:
“That’s what middle-class economics is — the idea that this country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share, everyone plays by the same set of rules.”
Obama wants people to play by the rules? Then why did he just grant executive “amnesty” to 5 million illegal aliens? Did they play by the rules? Watch what he does, not what he says.

While Pres. Obama goes around touting the unemployment number and the so-called Recovery, it turns out he is about 5 millions jobs created short. Meanwhile, the Oil Patch, and Oil Companies are laying people off. Those skilled people won’t have other jobs to go to. Their higher salaries will be gone.
This post was interesting. All the Obama stimulus promises are were a waste of money. Just like all the Obamacare promises about keeping your plan and your doctor. Just like that promise about the average family saving $2500 a year because of Obamacare.

I do not care that Obama decided or Valerie Jarrett decided that Obama was not to attend the march in Paris this last weekend against Islamic Terrorism. I do believe that at the very least, Obama’s good friend and protector, Eric Holder who was in Paris should have attended. But he had other things to do. The Obama administration holds tightly to the notion that the problem is not really Islamic extremism. They now spin the line that the bad guys are not Islamic at all. Evidently, they now get to decide who is the true Islam.
The march is symbolic. Symbolism is OK. The march was not the other adherents of Islam in France telling the extremists that they cannot pervert Islam. No. It was the other people of France, rightfully appalled by the terrorism. The march was appealing in it’s multitudes, but not something that will matter in 6 months. It is evidently impossible to shame the Islamic terrorists. The march will be just like the “#BringBackOurGirls” campaign in April. It’s a symbol. Symbols do not hurt the people doing this. They fear nothing.
Meanwhile, the Barbarians keep on growing. Beheading those from the West, killing whole villages in Nigeria, passing out kidnapped girls for sex and marriage, murdering young people in their classes, lashing bloggers (in civilized Egypt), blaming the Jews for Charlie Hebdo (from NATO member Turkey, another civilized nation), teaching their children to kill with guns, giving their children dismembered heads to show off, telling their children to hate with cute and crude TV cartoons, stoning gays, mutilating the genitals of young women, on and on ad nauseam.
Obama’s answer to this is empty Guantanamo, give speeches, and cling to the notion that the problem lies not in Islam, not in the confusing Koran, and is somehow caused by the United States. His outreach and apology tour has borne fruit. Meanwhile, back at the White House, rested from a few weeks in Hawaii, Obama watches football.
