Obama’s latest verbal gem [Darleen Click]

Do you think the world is “falling apart”? Well, blame Media.

President Obama on Friday said social media and the nightly news are partly to blame for the sense that “the world is falling apart.”

“I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” Obama told a group of donors gathered at a Democratic National Committee barbecue in Purchase, N.Y.

But the president said that current foreign policy crises across the world are not comparable to the challenges the U.S. faced during the Cold War.

Acknowledging “the barbarity” of Islamist militants and Russia “reasserting the notion that might means right,” Obama, though, dismissed the notion that he was facing unprecedented challenges.

“The world’s always been messy … we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” he said, according to a White House pool report.

If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart,” said Obama.

  1. His complaint is not that things are bad but that people are noticing his fine new clothes, aren’t, and telling each other too.

    The meta-message is “Snitches [will] get Stitches” as soon as he figures out a strategy to do so.

  2. Go ahead and purchase newyork — it won’t appear to cost much beyond soothing mush, and after all, fortune favors the young and audacious aggressor. Bitch her up, slap her around.

    But hey, while you’re at it, caveat emptor little boy-king. You’re likely to get more than you counted on for your troubles, if this extent of your understanding is any indicator at all.

  3. The UN flashes its muscle . . .

    . . . and flees to war-criminally charged Israel for safety.

    Makes perfect sense in the world of social media

  4. Sort of like blaming a YouTube video.

  5. in today’s news the piece of shit soros handpuppet what earlier this year freed five hardened terrorists is “acknowledging ‘the barbarity’ of Islamist militants”

  6. acknowledging ‘the barbarity’ of Islamist militants

    he would know – at least under the lash of the childish taunt: “takes one to know one”.

  7. Someone should point out to President Soros Handpuppet (thanks hf) that this isn’t about “feelings” this is about the cold hard facts that people who are not muslims are being murdered in barbaric ways by a bunch of fascists who operate under the guise of religion.

  8. I guess the UN’s new brown uniform pants finally appeared.

  9. I gotta say, I think social media is an enabler of much which is wrong in the country, but, if you’ll pardon the expression, Obama is a pot calling the kettle black.

  10. **** Peter Baker ~ New York Times

    “If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart,” he said at a Democratic fundraiser in Purchase, New York, just north of New York City. He agreed that “we are living through an extraordinarily challenging time” and “I can see why a lot of folks are troubled.”

    But returning to what has become a recurring theme at his fundraisers, Obama said Americans should remain calm and confident.

    “We will get through these challenging times just like we have in the past,” he said. “And I promise you, things are much less dangerous than they were 20 years ago, 25 years ago.”
    […]

    “The truth of the matter is the world’s always been messy,” he said. “We’re just noticing more in part because of social media.”

    But on a day that Britain raised its terrorist threat level because of concerns about extremists in Syria and Iraq, Obama said his “main message” was that “America’s military superiority has never been greater” and its defenses are stronger than they were before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    “We are much less vulnerable than we were 10 or 12 or 15 years ago,” he said.

    […]

    Obama flew to Westchester County for two events benefiting the Democratic National Committee. The first was a closed-door roundtable with about 25 supporters paying as much as $32,400 apiece.

    The event was hosted by George Logothetis, a shipping heir and chairman of the Libra Group, and his wife, Nitzia Logothetis, founder of Seleni, a nonprofit organization promoting mental health for women around the world.
    It was held at the home of Camilo Patrignani, chief executive of Greenwood Energy, a subsidiary of Libra, and his wife, Lucia.

    Evidently, during the event, Obama encountered some of the anxiety he later referred to, because at his next stop, which was open to reporters, he said someone had just suggested that he declare a national state of emergency, a notion he quickly discounted as not the way the United States worked.

    That second event was a barbecue at the estate of two longtime benefactors, Robert Wolf, former chairman of UBS, and his wife Carol Wolf, coordinator of special projects for the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. About 250 supporters paid $15,000 or more per couple, according to the Democratic committee.

    Obama then flew to Rhode Island to attend a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Newport. About 60 people were expected at the event at Seafair, the home of Richard Bready, former chief executive officer of Nortek, the local news media reported.

    The president originally intended to fly back to Westchester to spend the night and relax Saturday but changed his mind and decided to fly back to Washington instead. He still planned to return to Westchester on Saturday evening to attend the wedding of Sam Kass, his family’s personal chef, and Alex Wagner, the MSNBC news program host. ****

    National state of emergency declaration, just in case.

  11. “Remain calm and vote Democrat”? No sale, dude.

  12. “The truth of the matter is the world’s always been messy,” ‘Obama’ said. “We’re just noticing more in part because I’ve got diarrhea and have been crapping all over it for six years now.”

  13. he’s so gross

  14. *putt*

  15. He is, at heart, a small man in a job that has overwhelmed him and his advisers. We are witnessing the end result of progressivism.

  16. President Peter Principle.

  17. at TV Tropes it is called “Informed Ability”.

  18. We are witnessing the end result of progressivism.

    It would be good, I think, if you wrote a heap more about that Mueller. About how, for instance, proclaiming progress as the primary aim of government (even where it is apparent to those who look to see that the acquisition of power and ever more power is in fact the surreptitious principle guiding those who sophistically proclaim progress as their preeminent motive) — as opposed say, to progress being merely one among many of the aims at good of government, where justice, liberty or some other principle takes the foremost in the ranks while still allowing progress to come along organically.

  19. They so desire a one-Party system, so they can deliver Nirvana to all of us. If not for the TEA Party, they could have had it all by now. And that’s the GOP’s sentiment too.

  20. ot: ain’t the beer cold?!

  21. … and James Foley was beheaded by “social media”

  22. Today we are treated to denunciations from the ClownCatastrophe DeptOState against Israel’s decision to declare a thousand acres near Gush Etzion to be land owned by the State. Says the DeptOState in the name of the United States “Oooh, that won’t help our dream to negotiate a TwoStateSolution, so we declare it ‘out of bounds’!”

    I.e., you Jews must learn to understand: we deep thinkers of the DeptOState see no future in your presence in Judea and Samaria — no, really, Jews, you must begin to behave in ways which signify your intentions to ethnically cleanse the West Bank of yourselves. Don’t you get it, after all these years? Not just the Arabs but we progressive thinkers in the DeptOState don’t want you there, can’t abide you there, and your presence there only justifies the killing of you there. Get with the program, Jews.

  23. sdferr. I think you beat me to it.
    Progress, I think, is not something for states to involve themselves in as a matter of policy. Progress is something free markets do very well. It is what they are for. Progressivism-the attempt by the state to lead the way by forcing people to act against their interests-(my definition)has always struck me as a kind of high minded fascism. It is at its heart cynical about the human condition. That individuals are incapable of making big decisions about their own lives.
    Im sure there are others here that can articulate it better than me.

  24. We might easily imagine progress regarding material effects which improve man’s estate, as the saying goes (I like to use air conditioning as a simple example). It’s a good deal harder to imagine what the meaning of progress of man’s moral relations would look like, as though men never knew the meaning of justice across lo all these millennia. And yet this seems to be the claim the progressive must necessarily make. Our position can be: “prove it.” Or at least make an effort to prove it.

  25. In general, the productive processes within a society will only function optimally when the environment fosters motivation. In a family unit or other small group*, popular approbation and a personal sense of communal identification may be sufficient rewards, but on a larger, more impersonal scale, a money economy works better than a system based on a utopian fantasy. A problem, however, is that the scheme may become or seem to appear more important than the general well-being of the people operating within it: “Hey, I got mine; if you don’t have the wherewithal to get yours, too bad.”

    Yes, this is an oversimplified rendering of the situation. Unfortunately, many people see things in simple ways. The progressives see conservatives as heartless, money-grubbing bigots while conservatives see progressives as meddling romanticists or hypocritical crypto-tyrants.
    – – –
    * or a nation at war, but that’s another matter.

  26. The progressives see conservatives as heartless, money-grubbing bigots

    This is also the view progressives take of their client populations, who are bought lock stock and barrel in the welfare state through playing on their greed and bigotry — only the progressives prudently don’t make a habit of speaking of this attitude they must take.

  27. Tzipi Livni is a moron.

    That is all.

  28. OT:

    Apparently it was the Indian general in charge of the UNDOF forces who ordered both the Fijian peacekeepers and the Filipino ones to surrender to the terrorists surrounding them. The Fijians did, the Filipinos didn’t and managed to make a retreat under fire to safety with the help of the Irish forces.

  29. that’s not how India fought wars against Pakistan.

  30. It seems to me that governments can play a part in the encouragement of Productive Progress.

    They must stay out of the way by not passing laws and regulations and taxes which hamper Productive Progress.

    Now that we are wiser than The Founding Fathers – who counted too much on enough Virtue being present in the population – this passive role has to be guaranteed via Constitutional provisions / amendments, in clear language, at the national and state levels.

  31. It seems likely that the Indian general was also under orders from higher up in New York.

  32. Same link.

    The UN has a history of folding that goes back to Rwanda and Kosovo. In the past the UN apparatchiks have relied on the faithfulness of their subordinate commanders to take a bullet for the team. ”Theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die.” But Tennyson had never been to the Philippines where the word for blindly following orders is tanga – or sap.

  33. From 11/7/08, “The Spirit of Sabinus” lives on today.

  34. the proggtards at that un like killing “white” infidels like the the “fijis”. those loser filipinos didn’t buy their davos.

  35. Obama is Ambiorix

  36. Does that make Sabinus the establishment Republicans, Cotta the classical conservatives, and us the Roman troops?

    Of course other formulations can be found as his Ambiorix-edness is not bound to only one frame of reference but spills forth everywhere. Betrayal is his lifeblood, his essence.

  37. Speaking of Establishment Republicans, Eric Cantor has landed safely in a well-feathered nest.

  38. IT’S OFFICIAL!

    Eric Cantor is now one of The Beautiful People.

  39. Verbal gems are one thing.

    Backstabbing allies, another.

    Backstabbing citizens, another still.

    Backstabbing the nation?

    meh . . . the nation voted for him.

  40. Obama on his real enemies.

    We’ll break those folks down,” he also said. “We’ll just stay on them. We’ll just keep at it. That’s how I got Michelle to marry me — I just wore her down. Persistence — you just stay at it.”

  41. Al-Nusra (al-Qaeda by another name) speaks on the question of the 45 Fijian UN soldiers it holds: *** Al-Qaeda-linked Syrian rebels holding 45 Fijian peacekeepers hostage have issued a set of demands for their release, including the extremist group’s removal from a UN terrorist list and compensation for the killing of three of its fighters in a shootout with international troops, an official said Tuesday. ***

    And left out of that list, the third of al-Nusra’s demands: delivery of humanitarian aid to parts of the Syrian capital of Damascus

    The UN will call for a quilting-bee.

  42. Another IS beheading of an American journalist.

    Next up? A Brit.

    When can we end this? #NukeMECCA

  43. When can we end this?

    Well look, impeachment is right out of bounds since the U.S. Constitution is no longer the law of the land. As to what is the law of the land we’ll have the ask the ClownDisaster himself.

  44. Three nukes: Mecca, Medina, and right in the center of the ISIS-held territories. Use a tactical nuke, at least, on the latter so some of the [non-Muslim] historic sites might survive.

    Have more ready to go.

  45. That’s not what needs nuking. It’s Iran’s nuclear production sites that need nuking. Ar-Raqqah can be eliminated with conventional bombing.

  46. Let’s give it a go, then.

    But we should be ready to send a message to all of Islam.

    Enough is enough. This is a struggle for survival.

  47. yah well you gotta get Iran’s biggest ally out of the White House first. Good luck with that.

  48. Mecca, Medina in ‘allied’ Saudi Arabia. But closed off to anyone not Muslim.

    We lived for decades under MAD (to some degree, we still do). It’s not too much to ask of our political ‘leaders’ to tell the Muslim population, “look, control your dogs, or we will put a hurting on Islam that will never be erased”.

    We can’t seem to get their attention any other way.

    I’ll bet my next house payment that Israel has already given notice to whomever needs hear it, that if Iran dares launch a nuclear attack on Israeli soil, the fugly meteorite gets it.

  49. The Muslims of the world didn’t vote to put the ClownCatastrophe into the White House, so it’s not so much their attention which ought to be our first concern as Americans, I think. Nope, it’s the morons among us who need to be awoken to the dangers headed their way on account of their own poor choices. Help these stooges understand that the old Constitution gizmo offers them a means to rid themselves of the single Executive who endangers us all. Start there. Start at the beginning, where action will make a difference.

  50. If America USA fails, then it will be a long, long time before any Nation’s Constitution can rival ours in protecting individual rights.

    But, our overly content and placid Americans need to watch TeeVee, can’t be bothered right now.

  51. Since none of the Republicans have any testicular fortitude, which means that The Jarrett Junto will be able to finish it’s term [and, perhaps, never leave], the only solution is to……..well…if I said the rest, I’d be arrested.

    But I’m very sure that I’m not the only one whose thoughts have turned this way – whether they should look to that as a reasonable solution or not.

  53. Time and space and running out of both, by design? By stupidity? Or by the feckless insanity of overweening pride?

  54. by design

    “I WON!”

  55. Say what you will about Nietzsche but the man did come to understand a certain mindset perfectly well.

    When you deal with a nihilist cult you don’t kill enough of them to send a message. You end them.

  56. If we are serious men — and that’s a valid point of contention as we’ve come to invite unserious men into our discussions — we will see these terrible courses of action for what they are.

    Utilitarian but without any joy in the undertaking whatsoever.

  57. We’re surrounded by a goodly number of nihilistic cultists (the producers of HBO’s “Generation Kill”, for instance), as well as many more unserious men and women who would not recognize a nihilistic cultist were one to land on their heads (John Boehner, for one, may stand in here). Grasping necessity when necessity is forced on those latter may be the only means to cause their awakening, and that will most likely be a close run thing. In the meantime, the innocent will suffer.

  58. Kill the chicken and then the monkey and make both their offspring watch, sdferr.

    That’s my take on it.

  59. Personally, I would approve those measures. The problem in part, however, is that Gen. Martin Dempsey chooses to remain at his post and watch the world burn.

  60. > to invite unserious men into our discussions <

    i deal with the " general stupidity of the age" by mocking it.
    but i find some solace with this tune :

    link

  61. The problem in part, however, is that Gen. Martin Dempsey chooses to remain at his post and watch the world burn.

    In every cycle we find such men.

  62. True, and yet it’s a sad thing that some cycles can afford them better than others. This doesn’t happen to be one. At all.

  63. When we properly praise those such as Cincinnatus or Washington we don’t even pay a second of attention to the Martin Dempseys of the world.

    Why, they have a pension to protect. They have circumscription. Nothing else registers with their ilk.

  64. But then one would have thought that Americans who have after all in vast majorities witnessed with their own eyes the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings and the Pentagon would have understood this well enough to have guarded themselves against such calamities.

    One is proven wrong on that assumption.

  65. One is proven wrong on that assumption.

    The second election of Obama made this a very concrete thing for me.

    Our people are, in the majority, without virtue.

  66. Do we have no idea where such men as Cincinnatus or Washington come from? Or we might add to that short list such ones as Abe Lincoln, William T. Sherman, and their like?

    It seems to me that once not so long ago men did have some idea where liberal men came from. Allan Bloom, blesshisdeadheart, wrote a famous book about that. Or two and even three books.

    Nowadays people talk of common core, or talk of MOOC, as though these will be our salvation. /spit

  67. >Our people are, in the majority, without virtue.<

    you mistake the "ruining class" for americans

  68. david brookes suxs pikachu

  69. you mistake the “ruining class” for americans

    You mistake Americans for those who would shrug such a ruining class off their backs.

    No, I’ve seen little hope for that.

  70. You are an American newrouter.

    Need anyone say more? Can anyone vouchsafe the contrary?

  71. For shits and giggles we can see how a far older gent than ourselves saw this cycle spin spin spin into the neverending future.

    It’s called The Republic.

  72. On that score I can recommend that people who are interested pick up Allan Bloom’s translation. There is none better where it comes to understanding Plato, if sacrificing some of the poetry is permissible. But then, if one wants the poetry that badly, then learn to read Greek.

  73. >You are an American newrouter. <

    perhaps but the "ruining class" are not. the harvard et al "educated" are a 5th column. i like what pol pot did to them.

  74. perhaps but the “ruining class” are not.

    Here you are of course mistaken. But then, we’ve already concluded you are an American, so there ought be little surprise to that.

  75. What you’re saying there is that a disease is not of the body, nr. (Sorry for the theological import. It’s a thing with my people.)

    No, it’s of the body. Sin is of the soul.

    They’re Americans. Absolutely they are.

  76. yes: mo dowd, davy brookes, billy krystal and doc krauthammer out there discussing where to plant a garden. good times!!11!!

  77. >Here you are of course mistaken.<

    the "ruining class" are by definition not americans. i think you be mistaken. you don't "fundamentally transform" a country if you are a part of it.

  78. See there? We’re Americans too, so we’re used to having American people who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground lie to us, telling us it’s raining when they’re just taking a piss down our backs. And this too, this discerning what is from what isn’t, this also is American. How’bout that?

  79. The KGB isn’t able to get a majority of Americans to vote for Obama the second time. This isn’t an outside influence.

    This is “us”.

  80. >No, it’s of the body. Sin is of the soul.<

    the "ruining class" is diseased. the american body needs to eliminate the diseased portion. like in 1860 -1865. same effin players.

  81. > And this too, this discerning what is from what isn’t, this also is American. How’bout that?<

    you got baracky "straw man" stock?

  82. >The KGB isn’t able to get a majority of Americans to vote for Obama the second time. This isn’t an outside influence.

    well ask david axelrod and frank marshall davis 1st.

  83. you got baracky “straw man” stock?

    Have you got anything cogent to say, or ask? Besides filling up our time with yet more bullshit?

  84. I wonder if majorities voted for Wilson, Roosevelt, Johnson… or Obama.

  85. Actually, I don’t wonder about that at all.

    All of that happened. Americans did it.

  86. >Have you got anything cogent to say, or ask? Besides filling up our time with yet more bullshit?<

    nice rebuttal with no substance

  87. Rebuttal? Maybe look that one up in the dictionary.

    wilson 1920, roosevelt 1938, johnson 1968, obama 2010. dude do a little history.

  89. Oh, and lest you miss it still, the substance of that remark I made is this: you, our American friend, are a bullshitter. But this can’t possibly be news to you, can it?

  139. The problem in part, however, is that Gen. Martin Dempsey chooses to remain at his post and watch the world burn.

    There’s more to the good General than he can publicly express, and I’m thinking he chose this image, perhaps intentionally, to hint at the reason he can’t do more to stop ISIL than what his CinC will permit. Because Barack Obama fears having to face returning body bags. Which is exactly what this image suggests to me.

    Dessert at least:

    Minnesota Senator Gene McCarthy once remarked that the chief purpose of moderate Republicans is to shoot the wounded after the battle is over. Absent Goldwater, it’s doubtful Republicans would have ventured near the battlefield at all. The rhetoric may have been imprudent, but the new fighting spirit it inculcated to the next generation of Republicans was essential. The historical record argues moderation in the pursuit of electoral viability is no virtue. Just ask Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney.
