Sarah Palin says our President is known for “Mom Jeans” …is our president viewed as weak on the world’s stage?
It would be easy to dismiss the verbal drivel spouted by Sarah Palin, but a broken clock is right at least twice a day. She basically calls the president weak in this clip. She is no fan of the president but how do you think the president is perceived on the world’s stage?
President Obama–”I didn’t have a dad in the house, and I was angry about it, even though I didn’t necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn’t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short,” the President said. He compared himself to young men now who are growing up like he did.”The only difference is that I grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. So when I made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe,” the President said. “I had people who encouraged me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. And they pushed me to work hard, and study hard, and make the most of myself. And if I didn’t listen, they said it again. And if I didn’t listen, they said it a third time – and they would give me second chances and third chances. “They never gave up on me, and so I didn’t give up on myself.”
Yesterday President Obama was amazingly candid as he discussed his childhood. He shared this as he introduced the President’s Initiative, My Brother’s Keeper. Yesterday was inspiring, but what will actually change the dynamic? It was interesting that the president took the opportunity to also scold the young men as he said they now have “no more excuses”. To some degree he is correct, but he needs to also take that same critical mirror and look at himself. He has also had a pocketful of excuses to explain his own lack of progress on his own agenda. The president has rewarded his LGBT community for their support and it has never came wrapped up with a lecture. It would have been refreshing to have seen this Initiative released with no chaser. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/27/obama-announces-my-brothers-keeper/
I saw this clip and I laughed. No insult here, but this morning the talking heads are questioning it. VP Biden made a joke. No insult here, but why the chatter? Share your thoughts.
If you call someone a subhuman mongrel should you apologize? That’s a quite a statement to make and it takes committment to make such a statement. Ted Nugent hates the president and his statements go beyond a policy debate. His comments show rage and disrespect. So why would he apologize for expressing his true feelings? He is apologizing to the people in his party who might be offended not to the president. We live in the age of apology. You make the most ourageous statent and then you apologize for it. You got your message out there and if you offended those associated with your cause simply release an apology it is sadly how our system works.

My plan for this Sunday was simple. Church. Pick up a sub and pick up the Washington Post. Watch the Ravens and take a nap, but this cover drove me to the computer. First, let’s agree that this was not a banner year for the President, but did he deserve to be depicted with this trio? The admitted crack smoking Toronto mayor, the performance enhancing drug using disgraced former cyclist champion and the twerking former Hanna Montana? The president should not be included with this group, and to add insult to injury they gave him a black eye. Washington Post really…the president deserves better than this.
