President Barack Obama never even once visited the iconic Nelson Mandela while he was still alive, but count on him hogging all the limelight he can at the freedom hero’s funeral.
t is a matter of public record that Obama ignored Mr. Mandela during all four years of his first term as president.
Michelle Obama briefly visited Mandela during her 2011 South African trip before going on safari with her two daughters.
During Obama’s June 2013 South African trip, Obama “deferred” to the family of an ailing Mandela by not visiting Mandela at his sick bed.
Does anyone notice how Obama excels at latching on to public figures like any common opportunist? Today it’s Nelson Mandela. Yesterday it was Pope Francis.
Obama gives the world the impression that he has suddenly fallen in love with an allegedly-gone-completely-Marxist Francis.
After first channeling most of the American presidents, Obama proves he will hitch a ride on anybody’s little red wagon he views as important.
“I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life,” said Obama. “And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set”.
Too bad, Obama hadn’t taken the opportunity to speak those passionate words into the ear of Mr. Mandela during his first term of office when Mr. Mandela was still alive.
These are the words Obama used in describing his newfound admiration for Pope Francis: “I think Pope Francis is showing himself to be a just and extraordinarily thoughtful, and soulful, messenger of peace and justice.”
Something is up! The "young invincibles" who were largely responsible for catapulting Barack Obama into the seat of power appear to be spurning ObamaCare and its joke of a website. A recent Harvard University Institute of Politics poll revealed that 50% of 18- to 29-year-olds disapprove of ObamaCare and believe that it will raise their .
Compounding that problem is the fact that less than one third of uninsured young people say they plan to enroll in coverage, which means that those the president was depending upon to carry the weight of health care costs would rather spend the little money they have trying to get their Obama logo tattoo lasered off.
Good for them! America's youth are smarter than Obama gives them credit for. They've figured out that the guy who's ruined their chances for a lucrative career now wants them to shoulder the bulk of the costs for his health care bill with money that his economic policies have prevented them from earning. Seems those between the ages of 18 and 29 are on to the president's Ponzi scheme, wherein the government wrangles the young into shifting their nonexistent resources to older, sicker Americans.
A recent Gallup survey found that more than one quarter of people without would rather pay the fine.

[VIDEO] Claim: Obama Stacking DHS Immigration Enforcement Office With Pro-Open Borders, Amnesty Attorneys
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it's important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys before making his way to the Labor Department.
Recently the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, followed suit by hiring nearly a dozen pro-amnesty attorneys. DOJ whistleblower and attorney J. Christian Adams has the details:

More than 2,400 Americans were killed and Obama can’t be bothered.
No official White House statement:
If the president won't scrap this law, shouldn't he delay it for all Americans before it can do further harm? Families who work hard and play by the rules deserve some basic choices, fairness and relief. That's why the House passed legislation to delay the individual mandate for all Americans and let you keep the plan you like; and it's why House Republicans will continue to give the law the scrutiny it deserves.
