White House Calls in Its Political A-Team to Win in Syria Melodrama

Wait–I thought that they were “confident” in their victory in getting Congress to give Obama political cover? From the Wall Street Journal:

In case the White House hasn’t underscored just how high the stakes are for President Barack Obama in seeking congressional authority on military action in Syria, some of his longest-serving former aides were summoned to the West Wing Tuesday to help with the president’s strategy to win support.

David Plouffe, a former White House senior adviser and Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, Robert Gibbs, former White House press secretary,Jon Favreau, Mr. Obama’s former chief speechwriter, and Tommy Vietor, a former National Security Council spokesman,  were seen arriving at the White House around noon.

There’s a real brain trust. Gee, now we can be sure that this adventure isn’t about politics.

Is it just me or does anyone else find it ironic that Barack Obama, who loathes the concept of American exceptionalism, is now using the idea that the world is safer when America stands up to dictators to save his own sorry rear end after he shot off his mouth?

Obama in the Bunker on Benghazi as Coverup Exposed with Victoria Toensing-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show, 5-12-13

Benghazi, Hillary Clinton

After last week’s hearing on Benghazi before Darryl Issa’s House Oversight Committee, we have even more questions about what happened on the most recent anniversary of 9/11. Still, it’s a clear picture is emerging, and common sense allows us to connect the very obvious dots. We’ll explore the remaining questions with über attorney Victoria Toensing, who represented the Benghazi whistleblowers, and who was scheduled to appear on last week’s show, but was delayed while traveling. Combining what happened in the Issa (R-CA) hearing with an application of my knowledge of the Chicago Way, I’m pretty sure I understand what happened. I’ll tell you during today’s show. Suffice it to say for now that it’s time to put Valerie Jarrett, David Plouffe, and Obama’s ultimate sleazemeister, David Axelrod under oath and get some answers.

There was another hearing in Congress last week, this time in the Senate on immigration. Any doubt that this 844-page monstrosity drafted by the Gang of 8 is a trick cooked up by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), should be gone after what we heard last week. Of the over 300 amendments proposed to the bill, the defeat of the one specific change tells us everything we need to know. Paging Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Let me say it again: you are being played.

Didn’t Sen. Rubio’s mom warn him about guys like Chuck Schumer? What was the best advice your mom gave you?

Tune in today for the rest of the story.

“Fortunately We’ve Had No Scandals,” Says Obama Apparatchik Plouffe-Show Notes, The Teri O’Brien Show


H/T Weasel Zippers

I am not making that up. If you heard today’s show, you heard haircut victim David Plouffe respond to Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace’s question about the perils of 2nd presidential terms by expressing happiness over the Obama first term being scandal-free. As I have said often during the last 4 years, I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP. And, as I have also often said, liberals are like the children that they love to exploit, so they like to play pretend. Since the Lame Stream Media doesn’t report on Fast and Furious, Benghazi or Solyndra, they never happened. Plouffe repeated this claim about the Obama first term being scandal free not only on FNS, but also on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopolous,” and he was not challenged on either show. What a surprise!

This Is No Time for Another Affirmative Action Appointee

Apparently, America’s first affirmative-action president isn’t satisfied with having  affirmative-action Attorney General, Eric “I Hate Whitey” Holder, so he’s still considering an affirmative-action Secretary of State, U. N. Ambassador Susan “I was just reading talking points” Rice. With the Middle East exploding, some are questioning whether that’s the best course of action. That aside, some bitter clingers are unwilling to “move on” from the murder of four Americans on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya, including three Republican senators, John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Kelly Ayotte, are still demanding answers from Ambassador Rice to what seem to be very simple questions (with answers a smart six-year-old knows); specifically,

  1. Did you question why you were the one selected to read talking points about Benghazi, since it was acknowledged that you knew nothing about it?
  2. Did you know that the Obama administration had seen live, real-time video that proved that the Benghazi events were a terrorist attack, not a “spontaneous” demonstration incited by an “offensive” YouTube video?
  3. Do you know who came up with the false narrative about this video being the cause of the murder of four Americans? If so, who was it?
  4. Who personally gave you the talking points that you delivered on five Sunday shows?
  5. Did you speak to any of the following people about the Benghazi events before going on the Sunday shows: Valerie Jarrett, Michelle Obama, David Plouffe, David Axelrod or Barack Obama?
  6. Were you promised anything in exchange for being the spokesperson on Benghazi on the Sunday shows?

Answers (which most of you figured out on September 16, 2012, if not sooner)

  1. That’s the main reason that I was selected. I had plausible deniability from my posture of willful ignorance, like a defense attorney who tells his client “don’t tell me if you did it or not.” Also, I have been a reliable, loyal democrat operative for decades, and they knew I wouldn’t let them down.
  2. I had no first-hand knowledge. I had heard people whispering about it, but once again, I made it a point NOT to find out anything.
  3. My understanding is that it was put together by a committee consisting of Valerie, Plouffe and Axelrod, although I was deliberately kept out of the loop because of that plausible deniability thing.
  4. James Clapper.
  5. Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes.
  6. The job of Secretary of State, along with the undying gratitude of Barack, Michelle, Valerie, Axelrod, Plouffe and the rest of the democrat party.

Let me repeat: it’s time to put Susan Rice under oath and ask her these questions. Then we need to put Valerie Jarrett, David Plouffe, and David Axelrod in the hot seat. And let’s not forget Hillary Clinton, who promised the families of the murdered Americans that we would make sure the maker of that heinous video paid the price for these tragic deaths. I’m under no illusions about whether any of them will tell the truth. Lying is natural as breathing to leftists. Hillary’s skill as an accomplished liar is legendary. We saw it on prominent display while her husband was president.

The lie about the YouTube video was created because it was an explanation, albeit a ridiculous and implausible on its face one, that wouldn’t step on the Obama administration’s silly narrative about his muscular foreign policy and its successful annihilation of al Qaeda. How would it have looked if people learned, less than two months before the election, that al Qaeda had its greatest success against the United States since the original 9/11 attacks? Yes, Osama bin Laden rots in hell, but he was the Ray Kroc of al Qaeda. Mr. Kroc is dead, and McDonald’s is still alive. That’s the reason it was so helpful when Candy Crowley rescued Barack Obama during that October 16 presidential debate

Ms. Rice should not given the job of Secretary State for two reasons: she should not be rewarded for being a reliable apparatchik for this lying passel of Marxist liars, and this is clearly no time for another affirmative-action appointee in a position of responsibility.

Note to Obama Apologists: He Didn’t Go on Offense Because He Can’t

One of the challenging things about being a knowledgeable observer of current events is the stunning disconnect between reality and the benighted babbling emitted into the atmosphere by people who are supposed to be the smartest, most well-informed around, our Lame Stream Media friends.

The latest example was their public head scratching over Barack Obama’s abysmal performance in last Wednesday night’s debate. As I noted the next morning, they are incapable of accepting the reality that their guy is an unqualified, affirmative-action assisted, thin-skinned empty suit, so they resort to other explanations. They blame the moderator. They blame the altitude. They claim that he, a man who doesn’t even attend national security briefings, was distracted by a national security crisis. They claim that he was trying to appear “presidential” and above the fray. They marvel at the fact that the very next day, he seems to regain his voice, and say all the marvelous comebacks he should have said during the debate. “Why oh why couldn’t he have said those brilliant things last night?” they wail. I’ll say it again. This sort of confusion about things that are beyond obvious is why my work is never done. I’ll speak very slowly, so that even Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow can understand.

Think about it, Chris, Rachel and any one else so demented that he or she is actually supporting the Dear Reader. Why do we call him “the Dear Reader?” Because like most other celebutards, any time he says anything half way intelligent or interesting, someone else has to write it first. On Thursday, his TelePrompTer was back, and therefore, so was that Barry that you know and love so much.

In nearly every public appearance, Barack Obama reads threadbare clichès to audiences of low-information backward children or public employee union members seeking goodies from his stash. His entire campaign consists of slogans, distortions of reality and unchallenged mythology. As we note frequently here, and on The Teri O’Brien Show, he himself is a fictional character. That being the case, his handlers realize that he must be very careful getting into an argument about the facts of his record, particularly with a smart challenger who clearly has a terrific command of those facts. For example, many of Barack Obama’s supporters were stunned that he didn’t bring up the allegedly “devastating” caught-on-tape remark Mitt Romney made about “the 47%” during the debate. That comment is some sort of horrific, smoking gun indictment of Mitt Romney if, and only if, it is distorted, and I’m sure Mitt Romney would not have accepted as a given the inaccurate characterization that Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton enjoy so much. If Mr. Romney were given the opportunity to speak about what he really meant, not only would that destroy the mischaracterization that the Obama campaign is hanging its hat on, it would have given Mitt the chance to explore the bigger issue of an opportunity society v. an entitlement society. They don’t want to open that can of worms, or any number of others because the reality is that the truth and the facts about Barack Obama’s record are the last thing they want to talk about.

The mantra-repeating propagandists supporting Obama not only accept his silly, hackneyed slogans without question. They assume that the rest of us do as well, and therefore, they can’t imagine the debacle for their side that would result if those slogans were ever subjected to a fact-based analysis by a smart opponent.

Obama’s handlers also know that if their thin-skinned narcissistic one-trick pony faced that kind of scrutiny, we might all witness a very unwelcome event from their standpoint; specifically, the arrival on the scene of Testy Barry. We have seen him before, and he is prickly, impatient, angry and certainly not “likable.”

Frankly, those lamenting Barack Obama’s passivity and failure to smack Mitt Romney with “Bain” and “the 47%” should be careful what they wish for. It could have been much worse.

Obama Supporters Can’t Have it Both Ways on “Obama Phones”: Show Notes, 9/29/12

I just called to ask how you like that free phone I gave you.

On yesterday’s edition of the program, we exposed the truth about the so-called “Obama phone.” The Left erupted in its typical knee-jerk outrage that anyone would dare suggest that a former Alinskyite community organizer would pursue income and wealth redistribution, and rushed to claim that the free cell phone program started during the Reagan administration. One lefty website, ThinkProgress.com, even linked to another left-leaning site, FactCheck.org to prove that “fact.” Unfortunately, the linked story didn’t include any reference to Ronald Reagan. The truth is that this “Lifeline” program was fully implemented by the Telecommunications Act of 1996, signed by Bill Clinton. And nice try, my pinko pals, saying, as one of liberal readers did, that “it’s paid for by cell phone users, not the government.” If the government mandates that cell phone companies give free phones to the beneficiaries of Obama’s stash, and they put the cost on your bill, that’s effectively a tax, and everyone knows it. So, Obama supporters are correct when they say that he didn’t start the program. The mystery is why he isn’t out there saying that, and explaining to that nice lady, who sounds EXACTLY like Flip Wilson’s “Geraldine” character, that Obama didn’t give her a free phone. Please read the pieces linked below for the full story about another example of hypocrisy and dishonesty from the Left.

My advice for Mitt Romney during Wednesday night’s debate: expose Obama for what he is a liar and a thin-skinned narcissist.

Two weeks ago, on this edition of the Teri O’Brien Show ”Barack Obama and Other Enemies Within”, we played you the sound bites of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice telling tales on Sunday shows about the murder of four Americans in Libya. We flashback to that audio to hear her mention “an FBI investigation.” How is that possible when the FBI still isn’t able to get to the crime scene because the neighborhood is too dangerous? Is it really possible that that’s true, or is it that the Obama administration wants the investigation delayed at least 5 weeks and 1 day? And what WAS she talking about?

Democrats Do a 180 on the “Are You Better Off?”

Uh oh. Time for a do-over! Sunday various Obama mouthpieces flub the “are you better off than you were four years ago?” by either stating the obvious answer, “no,” or changing the subject by reciting their predictable talking points. Monday, realizing that telling the truth is a losing political strategy, they do a 180. I think it may be too late to put that toothpaste back in the tube, Kids.
