The last few weeks have been among the worst of Barack Obama’s time in office, recalling earlier periods of turmoil for the president in 2010 and 2011, when his ratings also plummeted. In 2013, the situation is significantly worse for the White House, with the Obama administration engulfed in a series of major scandals (IRS persecution of conservative groups, the Benghazi debacle, and the Justice Department seizure of journalists’ phone records) that are not only eroding trust in government but also in the office of the president itself. This is undoubtedly a period of steep decline for the Obama presidency, whose imperial-style big government approach is being increasingly questioned not only by American voters, but also by formerly subservient sections of the liberal-dominated mainstream media. In contrast to his first term, Barack Obama is finding himself less and less shielded by the press, and far more vulnerable to public criticism.
With good reason, Americans don’t feel optimistic about their country’s future with President Obama at the helm. . . .

–SNIP– Barack Obama was born into an Islamic society. He is a product of skewed secretive, distrustful, paranoid, victimized teachings that included studying the Koran and living life lessons as taught by the Prophet Muhammad.
During his formative years Obama attended madrassas and lived in a world dominated by Islamic thinking. Perhaps that is of no consequence, but it is no secret that many Muslims are indoctrinated in their youth long before they have any concept of what they are saying.
Far fetched? Maybe, but how many times have we seen attorneys defend clients by claiming child abuse and all manner of detrimental external prejudice that influenced a person during childhood? It happens all the time. Why should the early outside forces on the president be any different when as a youth he was surrounded by a preponderance of Islamic thinking?

Carl Toepel’s passion for collecting campaign buttons and other political memorabilia began when he attended his first Republican National Convention in San Francisco in 1956.
After watching the 1952 presidential conventions on TV, prior the election of Republican Dwight Eisenhower over Democrat Adlai Stevenson, Toepel told his parents he was going to write a letter to the Republican Party asking if he could attend the next convention.

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

Tuesday morning, a peculiar announcement trickled out of the White House press office: President Barack Obama would be holding a moment of silence for the victims of the Boston bombings. At the White House. By himself. No press or other intruders allowed.
Except the White House photographer.
That Obama assumed Americans would want an iconic photo of him privately mourning the victims of the bombings was emblematic of a kind of hubris that has enveloped the president and his White House as the president commences his second term.

Inside Ronald Reagan
A Reason Interview
with Manuel Klausner from the July 1975 issue
“I don’t believe in a government that protects us from ourselves.”
Those of us concerned about liberty have had good reason of late to be interested in Ronald Reagan. Increasingly, California’s former governor has been turning up in first place among Republican figures in political opinion polls, among Independents as well as Republicans. In addition, in recent months Reagan has taken to using the term “libertarian” (or “libertarian-conservative”) to describe his political philosophy. All of which naturally made us interested in taking a closer look at the man and his ideas. Thanks to the efforts of the late Ned Hutchinson (a former Reagan aide), REASON was able to obtain time out of Reagan’s busy schedule for him to be interviewed by Editor Manuel S. Klausner.

“President Obama will be sworn in with his hand resting on two Bibles. Is that how screwed up Washington is now? One Bible can’t get the job done anymore?” –Jay Leno
“The White House announced today that the theme for President Obama’s second inauguration will be ‘Faith in America’s Future.’ The idea is to get our minds off of America’s present.” –Jay Leno
“President Obama’s inauguration is coming up. During next week’s inauguration, he will be sworn in with not one, but two Bibles. Relax, Mr. President. We get it. You’re not a Muslim. You’re overcompensating.” –Conan O’Brien
“President Obama recently came under fire over the lack of diversity in his cabinet. Then Obama said, ‘You guys know I’ll be there, too, right?’” –Jimmy Fallon

From day one, Obama’s re-election effort has been a microcosm of his failures in office. Here is a list of the top ten Obama campaign disasters–and there are still six weeks to go!

. . . If he really wanted to be president, he could be the president now.
by Peggy Noonan
In its otherwise glorious history, the Oval Office has suffered its share of scoundrels. Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon, to name just two, certainly left distinctive stains.
Yet Barack Obama’s conduct puts him in a class of one. Day in, day out, he diminishes the traditions of an office that, starting with George Washington, were created to keep the presidency above the soiling scrum of partisan politics.
No. 44 specializes in a small-mindedness fueled by arrogance and contempt. So much so that, if he loses this election, he’ll already have earned the title for his next book: “Honey, I Shrunk the Presidency.” Let us count the ways.
He has attended more fund-raisers than any president in history, turning Air Force One into a collection shuttle.
He stands behind the grand seal of the United States of America to level scurrilous attacks on his opponent, by name, and even names the opposing vice-presidential candidate. He’s more respectful when he talks of Iran’s mad mullahs.

In an interview with NPR, Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman expressed dislike for the fact that most Americans consider President Barack Obama the first black President.
During his appearance on “Tell Me More,” Freeman said, “Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America. There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”
