@GovernorPerry: @BarackObama attempting to bully governors.

This was from a RGA panel(?), back in February:

“When you have governors, and we all compete against each other — we are the laboratories of innovation — and for the President of the United States to look Democrat and Republican governors in the eye and say, ‘I do not trust you to make decisions in your state about issues of education, about transportation infrastructure,’ — and that is really troubling,” he said.
Perry expressed his own fears regarding Environmental Protection Agency restrictions choking off America’s energy production and a possible reduction in his state’s national guard.

“As a matter of fact, he [Obama] said at that meeting, he said, ‘If I hear any of you pushing back, making statements about Washington spends too much money, you’ll hear from me,” he said, adding, “I’m highly offended by that.”

Democrats yelling at each other over immigration. :flatly: Such a shame. Really.

I would have loved to have heard this conversation:

The White House is finding itself increasingly on defense over deportations of undocumented immigrants, as key Democrats and a top immigration reform group have gone public this week with their desire for President Barack Obama to act.

National Council of La Raza President Janet Murguía called Obama the “deporter-in-chief” in a major speech Tuesday, leading to angry phone calls from senior White House officials — including adviser Valerie Jarrett — according to three people familiar with the calls.

Jarrett told Murguía that Obama was “very disappointed” with the statement, the sources said.

@BarackObama reportedly planning #obamacare plan cancellation delay…

…in order to help(?) Democrats.

The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.

As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements.

Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.

Couple of things about this. Note that all of this assumes that the administration can get away with unilaterally and retroactively changing the health care law again: Barack Obama is riding the GOP’s quite understandable reluctance to impeach him right into the ground*. (more…)

Bill Clinton poses with man who called @BarackObama an indentured servant.

(Via @PJMedia_com) Oh, sure, Bill Clinton also posed with a couple of prostitutes, but they were legal ones from Nevada. This is easily more problematical:

@BarackObama to bully Israel tomorrow! …Well. I suppose that he will *try*.

I didn’t really want to post on this, but since Barack Obama feels the need to spout off on it

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the White House tomorrow, President Barack Obama will tell him that his country could face a bleak future — one of international isolation and demographic disaster — if he refuses to endorse a U.S.-drafted framework agreement for peace with the Palestinians. Obama will warn Netanyahu that time is running out for Israel as a Jewish-majority democracy. And the president will make the case that Netanyahu, alone among Israelis, has the strength and political credibility to lead his people away from the precipice.

In an hourlong interview Thursday in the Oval Office, Obama, borrowing from the Jewish sage Rabbi Hillel, told me that his message to Netanyahu will be this: “If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who?” He then took a sharper tone, saying that if Netanyahu “does not believe that a peace deal with the Palestinians is the right thing to do for Israel, then he needs to articulate an alternative approach.” He added, “It’s hard to come up with one that’s plausible.”

Quote of the Day, @BarackObama Still Has The Jonah’s Touch edition.

It’s a miracle that Barack Obama gets invited anywhere, anymore.

A Minneapolis light rail test train derailed shortly after President Obama lauded the expansion of the system, the Pioneer Press of St. Paul, Minn., reports.

Obama touted the expansion of Minnesota’s Metro light rail system to St. Paul, which is scheduled to open in June, as an example for the nation to follow. Hours later, a train ran off the tracks.

Although I suppose that there’s no such thing as a Jonah.

Via somebody on Twitter.  Sorry: lost the tab.

My inexplicable fisking of a Barack Obama fundraising email.

Really, I have no idea why I did this.

Hi, Barry! Can I call you ‘Barry?’ – I don’t care: you work for me, not the other way around. Barry it is, then, fellow-citizen. Who will be out of office in less than three years, so don’t get huffy about it.

Keywords: Barack Obama, Cult of Personality, 2010-2020, Democrats

This post is written for researchers from the year 2044 who are wondering about the following:

[MEGYN] KELLY: We heard a lot of objections when President Bush expanded the powers of the presidency from the left and from the media. They haven’t been raising the same objections now that we have a Democrat in The White House. And you say they do so at their own peril.

[JONATHAN] TURLEY: I’m afraid this is beginning to border on a cult of personality for people on the left. I happen to agree with many of President Obama’s policies, but in our system it is often as important how you do something as what you do.

And I think that many people will look back at this period in history and see nothing but confusion as to why people remained so silent when the president asserted these types of unilateral actions.

Liberals desperately trying to maintain political financing monopoly.

Man, there are people out there who really do hate not having a hammerlock on the spigots anymore.

Some big Democratic donors have a message for Congress: Don’t rely so much on the rich to fill your campaign war chests.

A group of 60 wealthy donors and activists have signed onto a new letter urging Congress to create a system of public financing that would curtail their own influence in elections, according to a copy of the letter being sent to the Hill on Friday.

@BarackObama ‘offers’ to stay out of 2014 Senate races.

Offers.’

President Barack Obama has told Senate Democrats that he’s willing to stay away from election battles where his presence would not be helpful, a Democratic source said — an apparent nod to his poll numbers.

Obama’s comments came when he and former President Bill Clinton attended the Senate Democrats’ issues conference at Nationals Park on Wednesday.

Sources at the meeting said Obama assured Democrats that maintaining control of the Senate is his top priority this year.
