Obama Unbound (by Reality)

(Image by Chip Bok)
Since we're still in "SOTUS Week,"  I thought I'd do one more "Dear Leader Addressing the Masses" meme.

This post's title is an homage to Jackie Gingrich Cushman's article:  A Speech and a President, Unbounded by Reality.

Jihadists Marching to the Same Tune as O "Turns the Page"

Our Dear Leader may have "turned the page," on the War on Terror--and just about everything else--but as I've posted before--the world continues to burn. 
Mark Steyn gives us a good run-down of Obama's foreign policy foul-ups in his Morning After the State of Before article.
Since Mark mentioned "...some Iranian-backed chappies were overrunning the presidential palace and taking Washington's "key ally" hostage..." the NYT warns that a fragmented Yemen could pose a danger to the US.

But one would never guess such dire conditions existed on the Arabian Peninsula base on Our Dear Leader's State of the Union (SOTUS) Address.

Ferguson Finale?

Earlier this week, Eric Holder's Department of Justice decided no civil rights charges will be filed against Darren Wilson
One would think this would put the entire Michael Brown Shooting to rest. 
Instead, the announcement touched-off another round of outrage on Twitter.
Let's hope the rage remains on-line.
But with folks like Al Sharpton, not to mention Eric Holder and Our Dear Leader, stirring the racial witches brew, you never know when another outrage will be concocted.

SOTUS Circus

Last night I took part of The Diplomad's advice and avoided watching O's State of the Union (SOTUS) address.  I didn't get a chance to watch American Sniper, but I intend to.
Townhall has provided a run-down, with plenty of links, on Obama's State of Disunion.

Not to mention the surrealism of demanding "better politics."  (Again with lotsa links).

Seahawks Superbowl Bound!

Starting off the week with some good news for a change:

This past Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks pulled off an amazing down-to-the-wire win against the Greenbay Packers for the NFC Championship in overtime.

My wife and I had to run several errands that day, but we turned on the TV when there was 6:53 minutes left in the game and Greenbay was leading 19-7.  The Seahawks made a spectacular come-back, but Greenbay didn't quit, scoring a field goal, tying the game 22-22.

All it took was a few minutes into overtime for the Seahawks to score a touch-down and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, with a final score of 28-22.

Here's the nine biggest moments of the game.

Now the Seahawks will face the New England Patriots, who defeated the Indianapolis Colts during the AFC Championship Game, in Superbowl XLIX.

To say us 12th Man fans are excited to see the Seahawks return to the Superbowl is an understatement...

Islamic Hacktivism Struck the Pentagon

(Image from The Daily Beast)
While the world was focused on who was attending--or not attending--the Paris Street Rally Summit, a group claiming to be from the Islamic State hacked into some of the Pentagon's social media sites.  But rest assured, no classified data was compromised.
Some folks were wondering if the Islamic State was the real culprit.

No matter who did this, or whether or not classified data remained secure, the security state isn't all that secure.

"Free" Community College For All

(Image by Glenn McCoy)
A week ago, Our Dear Leader announced a proposal for providing free community college

This "freebie" is estimated to cost taxpayers $60 billion--and the students will still have to pay for books, room & board and "fees."

Ann Coulter explains why college is so expensive in the first place, along with being loaded with a lot of "empty intellectual calories."

O the No-Show

(Image by Michael Ramirez)
I have mixed feelings about the Street Rally Summit Meeting that took place in Paris last weekend. 

On the one-hand, I agree with The Diplomad, that this was merely Progressivism on Parade.

But on the other, since President O is supposedly the leader of the Free World, and a Progressive to boot, he should have gone.

Instead, everyone was wondering:

Apparently, instead of golfing, (which was my first guess), O was watching football.
But even if O did go, VDH points out what the real scandal of the Paris Street March was.
Meanwhile, as the 3 million issues of Charlie Hebdo sold out before dawn, the day it was issued, most media outlets still pixilated-out the front cover. 
Britain's Sky News demonstrated its dhimmitude by profusely apologizing when a Charlie Hebdo writer displayed the cover on air.

All this self-censorship left Mark Steyn wondering:  Where's the lead in the pencil?
