Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Obama Lied Because Media Is In His Pocket

Charles Krauthammer says that Obama admin lied because the MSM is in his court...and will spin anything says or does.

He's right.  In the past 5 years, the liberally biased MSM has done it's very best to either spin positively, or ignore completely, any story that is inimical to the Obama administration.  This has hurt the country badly because we have a leader that doesn't have to face any difficult questions.  But moreover, because the media has refused to ask Mr. Obama any substantive policy questions, he has been able to ignore the nation's best interests...
“They had two reasons to lie,” Krauthammer said. “The first reason was the fact that the Sept. 11 attack occurred a week after they just spent four days in Charlotte dancing on the grave of bin Laden. Remember, this is their single foreign policy achievement. There is none other. Look at Iran Look at Russia. Look at Israel. Look at Syria. Look at the Arab spring. It’s all in collapse. They got one thing to argue, and they sure argued it, where they made the point again and again and again with that ridiculous slogan from Vice President [Biden], ‘bin laden dead, GM alive,’ because what Libya said, what it was proclaiming to the world and the reason the attack was launched in the first place was to say, ‘bin Laden dead, al-Qaida alive.’ That is what has happened as a result of leading from behind in Libya.”

Krauthammer said the problems stemming from the president’s foreign policy extend beyond Libya. “You’ve got, you know, al-Qaida has — essentially one of the jihadist factions taken over northern Mali,” Krauthammer said. “There are training camps throughout North Africa. And we now know about the rise of the strength of the jihadist in Syria, where Obama has again has been leading from behind.”
Currently, the only thing that he has been able to crow about it the elimination of Osama bin Laden...which would have been better served taking him alive.  Because of Obama's missteps in foriegn policy, Al Quieda is resurgent, not just in Afghanistan, but in Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya as well as making inroads into Mali.  That's a huge foriegn policy failure. 

When you tie that foreign policy failure to the disasterous domestic policies...this president is on road to unseat James Earl Carter as the 2nd worst president in our history.  Currently, in my opinion, James Buchanan holds that title as his policies directly led to the Civil  War.  The most distructive war in our history.
