    NOONAN: OBAMA BECOMING ‘CREEPY’ « Pat Dollard

    The shift started on Jan. 20, with the mandate that agencies of the Catholic Church would have to provide services the church finds morally repugnant. The public reaction? "You're kidding me. That's not just bad judgment and a lack of civic tact, it's not even constitutional!" Faced with the blowback, the president offered a so-called accommodation that even its supporters recognized as devious. Not ill-advised, devious. Then his operatives flooded the airwaves with dishonest—not wrongheaded, dishonest—charges that those who defend the church's religious liberties are trying to take away your contraceptives.

    What a sour taste this all left. How shocking it was, including for those in the church who'd been in touch with the administration and were murmuring about having been misled.

    Events of just the past 10 days have contributed to the shift. There was the open-mic conversation with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in which Mr. Obama pleaded for "space" and said he will have "more flexibility" in his negotiations once the election is over and those pesky voters have done their thing. On tape it looked so bush-league, so faux-sophisticated. When he knew he'd been caught, the president tried to laugh it off by comically covering a mic in a following meeting. It was all so . . . creepy.


    This was BEFORE we learned that obama has basically been an Iranian spy.

    I love Peggy Noonan. She still has it after all these years.

    This is dead on. Describes me and how I have felt about Obama to a T. I have never liked his policies, but respected him as President. However, I have recently begun to dislike the man himself on a personal level. And it started with his blatant attack on religion.

    Damn, that woman is almost psychic!

    What do you expect?
    Seriously.
    He is an immature man with a chip on his shoulder like most progressives.
    You worked hard for years to build a business and you start reaping the rewards of those sacrifices? --- You got your money obviously on the backs of the poor and we should take some of it back.
    Religion? --- An institution with too many freedoms that need to be reigned in.
    Wall Street Banks? --- Publicly speak out against them, on the job - give them anything they want like the past 4 Presidents.
    Cronyism? --- Something conservatives do. Our special interests have a moral high-ground so therefore it is not cronyism.
    Education --- Whatever the NEA recommends.

    Please feel free to add your own.

    The White House cleared the way for tough new sanctions on Iran Friday, saying a cutoff of Iranian oil wouldn't significantly harm world markets.

    President Barack Obama said there was "sufficient supply of petroleum and petroleum products from countries other than Iran" to cushion the impact of sanctions on oil markets.

    The move, which comes amid rising gas prices across the country, allows the U.S. to move forward with congressionally mandated sanctions that target financial institutions which continue to do business with Iran. The earlier legislation set Friday as a deadline for the White House to move to block the sanctions or to allow them.

    In recent weeks, oil markets have factored in the possibility that looming sanctions on Iran might take a significant amount of oil off the global market. Obama administration officials have hinted in recent weeks that tapping the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve was a tool available to calm oil markets.

    It has only been 3 years.

    Maybe this is a stage or something.
