That pretty much NAILS this imperial narcissist.NationalReview: Insidiously and inadvertently, Barack Obama is alienating the people and moving the country to the right. If he keeps it up, by 2017 it will be a reactionary nation. But, counterintuitive as it seems, that is fine with Obama: Après nous le déluge. ...
Obama certainly has doubled down going into his last year, most recently insisting on letting in more refugees from the Middle East, at a time when the children of Middle Eastern immigrants and contemporary migrants are terrorizing Europe. What remaining unpopular executive acts might anger his opponents the most? Close down Guantanamo, let thousands more refugees into the United States, free thousands more felons, snub another ally, flatter another enemy, weigh in on another interracial melodrama, extend amnesty to another million illegal aliens, make global warming laws by fiat, expand Obamacare, unilaterally impose gun control? In lieu of achievement, is the Obama theory to become relevant or noteworthy by offending the public and goading political enemies?
An Obama press conference is now a summation of all his old damn-you clichés — the fantasy strawman arguments; the caricatures of the evil Republican bogeymen; the demagogic litany of the sick, the innocent, and the old at the mercy of his callous opponents; the affected accentuation (e.g., Talîban; Pakîstan, Îslám, Latînos, etc.) that so many autodidacts parade in lieu of learning foreign languages; the make-no-mistake-about-it and let-me-be-clear empty emphatics; the flashing temper tantrums; the mangled sports metaphors; the factual gaffes; and the monotonous I, me, my, and mine first-person-pronoun exhaustion. What Obama cannot do in fact, he believes he can still accomplish through invective and derision. ...
If you suggested to Obama that, in his search for a contrarian legacy, he should do something to stop the slaughter in the Middle East and be careful about letting in more unexamined refugees, in answer, he would be more likely to do less than nothing abroad and vastly expand the influx of migrants. Getting under his critics’ skin is about all that is left of a failed presidency.
Many of our observers still do not quite grasp that Obama will end his presidency by seeking to get his opponents’ goat — and that his resentment will lead to some strange things said and done. ...
At home, Obama feels liberated now that he is free from further elections. He thinks he has a legitimate right to be a bit vindictive and vent his own frustrations and pique, heretofore repressed over the last seven years because of the exigencies of Democratic electioneering. Obama can now vent and strike back at his opponents, caricaturing them from abroad, questioning their patriotism, slandering them for sport, and trying to figure out which emblematic executive orders and extra-legal bureaucratic directives will most infuriate them and repay them for their supposed culpability for his failed vero possumus presidency.
The more contrarian he becomes, and the more he opposes the wishes of the vast majority of the American people, all the more Obama envisions himself speaking truth to power and becoming iconic of something rather than the reality that he is becoming proof of nothing.
At a time in which the FBI is using elite surveillance teams to track at least 48 high risk ISIS suspects domestically (Umm, how did they get here? I thought we had a vetting process?), Obama unveils more than 2,000 regulations just BEFORE Thanksgiving...
Breitbart: President Obama proposed 2,224 new regulations just before Thanksgiving, 144 of which are each expected to cost Americans $100 million or more. Senior Research Fellow and expert in regulatory and telecommunications for the Heritage Foundation James Gattuso reviewed the “economically significant” regulations....while overseas, again, not addressing external dangers, but demanding his global legacy be fulfilled...
The administration is required to released proposed regulations twice a year, but Gattuso points out that the Obama administration has a habit of doing it around holidays when most Americans are focused on family.
Fall 2012 – December 21 (Friday before Christmas)American Action Forum noted the proposed rules increased regulatory costs by more than $1.8 billion this week. Gattuso urges Congress to put a stop to these new proposed regulations and keep them from being adopted.

On Monday’s Mark Levin Show, This international climate pact being pushed is all about President Obama’s legacy. Climate change isn’t about bettering the climate, it’s about pretending to manage mother nature and is being used to advance centralized government and globalism. Obama is using the American people to promote climate change as part of his social engineering scheme. It should be noticed that climate change has nothing to do with the actual weather but with the Marxist and degrowth ideologies that seek to remake America. Climate change through degrowth is a direct assault on free market capitalism, property rights and the Industrial revolution. Obama and his degrowth friends seek to redistribute wealth on a large scale, set a maximum income, have open borders, and create a police state.Yep, looks like Mr. Hanson has Mr. Obama PEGGED.
Besides securing the right guy for the opposition party's primary, we've got this Democratic despot to usher out. 2016 could be a bumpy one indeed.
