Interesting how a a guy in the Oval Office keeps talking about moving “forward” when he has to walk backwards so much. My friend, Gene, calls it the Moonwalk. Now Obama desperately tries to tie himself to Bill Clinton. He wants Clinton to nominate him at the convention. He’s been talking so much about Clinton’s record you’d think Clinton was running. And the media keeps tracking the historicalness of Obama. Well, Clinton made history too. He was the only president since Andrew Johnson to be impeached. So maybe Obama will make even more “history” before he’s through.
Book bombshell: Obama canceled Bin Laden ‘kill’ raid three times at Jarrett’s urging

At the urging of Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission, according to an explosive new book scheduled for release August 21. The Daily Caller has seen a portion of the chapter in which the stunning revelation appears.
In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.
Miniter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cites an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning. …/
We interrupt this broadcast of “Hope and Change” to bring you a Truth special.
Next week we may show Dallas in this time slot.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
It’s always disturbed me, Obama’s zealous assault on Christians and matters of faith.(or those with deeply held beliefs according to Schumer) The obvious fact that cannot be disputed is his ’08 “Hope and Change” campaign was a faith-based campaign. Try as they might this is just fact. That is why it is fascinating, albeit contradicting.
A faith-based campaign and a faith-based candidate.
Of course, his problem now is running the same faith-based campaign despite what we have already seen, witnessed, and analyzed not to mention what has yet to be verified. His faith-based campaign now looks like a bad magic show: it takes a lot of faith and hope just to entertain the illusion. Still that is what his campaign demands from people.
George Bush may have had a “faith-based initiative”, which even many Christians disagreed with, but Obama has an entire faith-based presidency. Funny how easy the left accepts his campaign, yet it was highly critical and skeptical about a “faith-based initiative”. I digress…
What is now at the fore is to rerun the faith-based campaign because Obama has not proven their ‘faith and hope’ to be grounded in reality. His dopey message is still based on “faith”. “Keep believing in me”. It must continue to be based on faith, hope and some interpretation of change.”The show must go on”. In 08, they voted for hope and change; now they must hope he changes. But he won’t, like every other socialist demagogue the left holds up on a pedestal, from Carter to Gore to Kerry and all points around them.
When Dems looked at Obama through their faith-coded glasses they marginalized or ignored any facts to the contrary from the beginning, and there were a pile. With all that ignored, they kept their faith not just in what he said and promised, but in their personal beliefs of what he would be and do. It was out in bizarre land.
Now, armed with all the failures of his term and their shattered hopes, they pick up the pieces and ignore any which don’t fit their starry-eyed optimism of “hope and change”. Media has done that better than Obama could have imagined. So now he is back to a faith-based campaign, regardless what Obama wants to call it. And he’s back on college campuses telling them to keep their faith in him.
There is some rational reason to his campaigning there, beside pandering to the young vote. Most of these major campuses are in areas where the Dems hold a majority anyway. So its mostly preaching to his choir – outside Philly, in metropolitan areas, Boston, DC area, etc. Ah, those incubators for liberalism, but which are also suffering economically like the country is.
So are we witnessing the twilight of the faith-based campaign era?(…yet)
… and what’s old is new.
File this under advice to the right.
The article below covers some old ground most of us know well, but which also conveniently shows up in a new Obama biography. Worth at least a glance if you don’t read it. (or skip to the bottom anyway)
Having said all of this, I warn conservatives not to throw gasoline on BuzzFeed’s non-existent fire as some websites have done by reporting on BuzzFeed’s “revelation.”
We are in a war for this country. Obama and his Leftist friends that want to “transform” our country by turning it into a European democratic-socialist oligarchy like the EU countries have become, versus our Constitutional Republic.” [no doubt about that]
This is good advice. We saw the pride(arrogance) of Obama’s ’08 campaign claims that they controlled the message – then attributed that success to their victory. Most of this bio-info from an Obama insider is old news; but how Team Obama will use it to their advantage is what is new. This author in question is an established insider, and no one wants to be played for a fool here.
