The survey was done by FOX news about Obama lying.

I cannot stand to hear Obama glout about the 8 million people who have signed up for the affordable health care his administration is peddling. What other choice do we have except to pay a fine if one does not sign up? Where is free enterprise to choose a company or not? The burning question is of those 8 million people how many have paid the premiums so far?

0bama gives a speech. (Not news)
Crowd very cold to 0bama.
0bama faces cold audience in Pennsylvania

"The 15 community college students who were picked to stand immediately behind the president, and in view of the TV cameras, mostly stood stone-faced through his speech.

At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces."

Who picked this place to give a speech, anyway? (Watch the news for some low-level white house lackey getting canned soon)

SAVMOR - "The other 85% believe he lies some of the time or most of the time so that number has to cut into his base. What a poor opinion of a president."

So do you think that's better or worse than the same beliefs about other politicians?

I find it very telling that a recent survey taken on Obama and if people believe he lies about most things. Only 15% said they think he never lies. The other 85% believe he lies some of the time or most of the time so that number has to cut into his base. What a poor opinion of a president.

Or maybe they just have "junk food" occasionally, instead of as a steady diet.

"Maybe if kids weren’t caged up in schools for eight hours a day trying to fit round pegs into the square holes of the school curriculum, and could actually run around outside and play more often, there would be fewer obese kids."

Maybe the author should have gone to school. They have playgrounds and something called recess. Elementary and middle schools typically have a 6-hour day these days. If they're there longer than that, it's usually because they don't have anywhere else to go. High schools are typically 7 hours, unless students are involved in optional early or late programs. Last I heard, high schools and middle schools typically had mandatory PE classes, too.

Ah, rjhenn, EvilBushJr. lost 12,000 Americans dead needlessly... 50,000 wounded for life needlessly... started two unneeded longest wars in USA history he couldn't win... cut benefits to Veterans/VA... used the toxic mortgage scam to get re-elected in 2004... couldn't get his buddy Osama bin Laden... brought the USA and most of the known universe to it's knees financially with the worst crash since 1929... brought the Dow Jones Average down to less than 1/2 what Clinton left it at... ... so WHAT in your estimation does it take to get an ' F- ' rating as president... he did as much damage as he could over 8 years...

. Obama/Biden vastly better equipped to deal with Ukraine than Jr. would have been... Jr. would have lost 2,000 of our troops there by now...

He has no worldly experience and just cannot figure out what to do about the Ukraine and Putin. His Cabinet is the weakest in generations and he has no one there to offer ideas or solutions like presidents before him. These secretaries must ask what to you want us to do Mr. President instead of offering him suggestions because they are qualified to do so. Putin does not care about sanctions and sending Biden to the Ukraine is actually an insult because he is an inefficient VP and knows little about the region or its problems. Obama suffers from the same affliction not knowing anything about the region or its problems.

- enjoyed the pics of the obamas eating (do as i say, not as i do) junk food. here are the articles comments at the end of the pics:

This isn’t to say that junk food is good for anyone, but as clearly can be seen, the Obamas eat their fair share of it and are not “obese.” It must be that they do what keeps individuals in shape: exercise regularly.

Maybe if kids weren’t caged up in schools for eight hours a day trying to fit round pegs into the square holes of the school curriculum, and could actually run around outside and play more often, there would be fewer obese kids.

The reason we have all these “do as I say, not as I do” examples from the Obamas is not that they are particularly bad human beings, but because there should not be a centralized government filled with fallible people commanding others how to live their lives.

So, basically, conservatives care more about the income schools get by selling junk food to kids than they do about the kids' health?

Of course, junk food junkies tend to be less choosy consumers, spending more, getting less for it, and saving less.

>>>In another from-the-top decree, President Obama and his USDA have used regulatory powers to officially ban all junk foods from the nation's schools.

The USDA has banned all food it deems unsuitable for kids and bases its power to demand such things on the fact that schools receive federal money for education. With federal money come federal strings. <<<

Hey ---- has anyone found anything the progressives are not trying to regulate so they can tell others how to live their lives?

What does 77% mean? Does it mean that they went out and found jobs where the pay for the guy was 30% higher for the guy at the desk next to the gal? No! It is a statistical summary of comparable education and comparable jobs, according to somebody who might be good at stat but not real clued into responsibility levels. How many women take 'flexible jobs' so they have time and ability to care for children? Will this impact pay, you bet.
So, back to 77%, seems the Administration wants to create more victims, people who feel wronged by the system rather than work hard and get the recognition that comes from that work. Do I like what the current president is doing to the country? No!

The column highlights what things 0bama has done and continues to do.
It's a opinion piece.
The exercise is then in determining what those behaviors point to.

Other authors have already examined how 0bama is a narcissist. This column just goes a little bit further.

An interesting read.

Is Obama a psychopath?

"It is safe to say that most politicians these days could be diagnosed with a range of mental conditions, and many would likely be labeled sociopaths or psychopaths"

"Obama has taken more luxury vacations than any other president, and he has done so as the American economy was in collapse for his policies."
" audacity is a manifestation of psychopathy, and Obama is a master of audacity. He has exacted more items into law by the capricious act of executive order than any other president in such a short period of time."

"That brings us to another habit of the psychopath – blaming others."

"One of the psychopath’s favorite tactics is the pity party."

"Another common trait of the psychopath is a mysterious and shady past. We know very little about President Obama’s formative years and little about his college years."

"Perhaps the most frightening symptom of the psychopath is to kill while keeping their own hands clean. Obama takes full credit for killing Osama bin Laden to the point of both stealing the glory from our Navy SEALs and at the same time betraying the existence of SEAL Team Six and exposing them to unwarranted assassination risk – risk that resulted in the worst catastrophic loss of life in the history of the SEALs."

Hey weasle, the IRS does what the Prez orders. He picks up His Phone or His Pen and lets the alphabet agencies do the work He proscribes. Regarding who, if anyone, authorized the IRS targeting of conservative groups, it was already in their culture to do this.

House Republicans who have investigated the IRS’s handling of applications of conservative groups’ seeking tax-exempt status have referred to the practice as “targeting.” So have news organizations, including The Washington Post.

But the Obama administration has preferred a more bureaucratic phrase — that “inappropriate criteria” were used to decide which organizations needed extra scrutiny. That would be words like “tea party.”

IRS chief: No ‘targeting’ of tea party groups, just ‘inappropriate criteria’

The IG’s report was carefully written, but at this point, it is silly and counterproductive for Koskinen to fall back on bureaucratese — or even deny that the phrase “targeting” had been used. While perhaps technically correct in terms of the report, this is a slender reed to hide behind. After all, George publicly said that all three allegations of “targeting” were proven, and that using “inappropriate criteria” was the equivalent of “targeting.” That demonstrates that the term “inappropriate criteria” is simply a euphemism. Accept that means “targeting,” and move on.

IRS Chief was given three Pinocchios.

I get ya, runningmp. My son has a great aptitude for computer programming, but he's currently working part-time at Target. He's only taken one course in programming that I know of, and he couldn't figure out why the rest of the class kept complaining about how hard it was.

But that's what I've been doing for the last 30+ years (and it would have been longer if the USAF hadn't decided that I belonged in foreign languages), so he doesn't want to do it.

Of course, part of that is that he's seen how frustrating it can be to work for companies that don't really know what they're doing.
