THe downward trajectory continues...

35% approval by independents? You can't get re-elected with numbers like that.

Obummer could fix this if he coud prove to the American people he is competent, capable and qualified. Don't look much like that's the case though, sorry.

When will Obama realize that honesty is the best policy. If his policies are so great he wouldn't have spend 2 years of his presidency raising 1billion dollars to fund reelection campaign to convince voters of something they reject.

Yes, and they are only allowed to engage the enemy for self defense. We have seen this story play out before and it doesn't usually end well. If we're sending out troops in, it needs to be No-hold-barred.

Another scathing analysis of the failures and impotency of Barry Obama--




The Right-Wing Complaint of 2008




In 2008, the following was the general right-wing argument against Obama’s candidacy:

a) The self-professed “uniter” Obama had, in truth, little record of uniting disparate groups. From community organizing to politics, his preferred modus operandi was rather to praise moderation, but politick more as a radical, and sometimes go after opponents as unreasonable or illiberal. Thus the most partisan voting senator in the Congress, who talked grandly of “working across the aisle,” also urged supporters to “get in their faces” and “take a gun to a knife fight.” Acorn, Project Vote, and SEIU were not ecumenical organizations.

b) Obama knew very little about foreign affairs, or perhaps even raw human nature as it plays out in power politics abroad. At times, he seemed naive about the singular role of the U.S. in the world, especially his sense that problems with Iran, the Middle East, Venezuela, Russia, and others were somehow predicated on American arrogance and unilateralism (and neither predating nor postdating George Bush) — to be remedied by Obama’s post-racial, post-national diplomacy.

c) In truth, Obama, for all his rhetorical skills and soft-spoken charisma, had little experience in the private sector outside of politics, academia, foundations, and subsidized organizing. Consequently, he did not seem to understand the nature of profit and loss, payrolls, how businesses worked and planned, or much of anything in the private sector.

d) Obama at times seemed to lack common sense, and perhaps even common knowledge. He appeared confused about everything from the number of U.S. states to the idea that air pressure and “tune-ups” might substitute for new oil exploration. He seemed assured when reading a teleprompted script, and yet lost much of his eloquence when it came to repartee and question and answer.

e) Obama saw race as essential to his persona and his success, rarely incidental. Collate the writings and rantings of his triad of pastors and friends — Rev. Wright, Rev. Pfleger, and Rev. Meeks — and one sees a common theme of racism (sometimes overt), anti-Semitism, and class warfare. It was considered irrelevant to remind voters in 2008 that Michelle Obama had alleged that the U.S. was a downright mean country, or that she had confessed to never heretofore being very proud of her country until it gave consideration to her husband as a presidential candidate — though both sentiments would seem rare for a potential first lady.

f) Obama, it was also felt, counted on a sense of entitlement. His admissions to Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard were alleged not to have been based on the usual competitive test scores or grades — and such charges were not refuted, but considered ancient history. As Harvard Law Review editor, he seemed to assume, quite rightly, that he did not have to publish an article. As a University of Chicago Law School lecturer he also rightly assumed that Chicago — and later Harvard as well — would, if he had wished, granted him tenure, again, despite nonexistent publication. Sen. Clinton argued, without much refutation, that as a state legislator Obama had both authored very little legislation and voted present on any vote that might be considered problematic for a higher political office — a charge that later disappointed supporters would come to echo, along with admissions of prior inexperience on Obama’s apart.

g) Obama, like many on the elite left, had an ambiguous attitude about affluence and its dividends. The more, as a community organizer, he had railed about bankers and unfairness, the more he had enjoyed a mini-mansion and dealt with the soon-to-be criminal Tony Rezko. The current Wall Street protests take their cue not just from presidential anger at “millionaires and billionaires,” but also from the idea that affluent young people are exempt from their own rhetorical charges.

Yet in 2008, to suggest “spread the wealth” meant anything important was to be either racist or a rank partisan. But Obama in 2001 in a Chicago public radio interview could not have been clearer about the need for government to redistribute income and his unhappiness that the Constitution seemed to prohibit that. Here is a telling excerpt in all its half-baked Foucauldian vocabulary:


But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in the society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. … I think, the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.

Again, to refer to all of the above in 2008 was considered not so much unfair as improper.

The Proving Ground

Then came the election, and a perfect storm of events. The general unhappiness with Bush over deficits and Iraq, the recession that had started in December 2007, the absence of any incumbent vice president or president in the race for the first time since 1952, an unusually unenergetic McCain campaign, and a nakedly partisan media — all that by early September still had not given Obama the lead. But the mid-September 2008 financial crash did. And so what in the last fifty years was usually considered improbable — the election of a northern Democratic liberal — soon seemed foreordained.

Obama's Mythical Political Skills Won't Save Him: Ramesh Ponnuru

Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Last year, President Barack Obama issued a warning to Republicans. They had been "politicking" instead of "governing," he said. "Well, we can politick for three months," he said. "They forgot I'm pretty good at politicking."

That was in August 2010. At the end of those three months, Republicans controlled the most seats in the U.S. House since the 1940s. Republicans did well for a lot of reasons. One of them was that the president is wrong: He isn't all that good at politics.




He can be forgiven for thinking otherwise. He won the top prize in American politics, after all, and many people have talked about him as a phenomenal political talent. He had beaten the mighty Clinton machine in the Democratic primaries, which many people had considered impossible. And when he took office it wasn't uncommon for liberals to compare him to Ronald Reagan, Franklin Roosevelt or even Abraham Lincoln. His speeches sent thrills up liberals' legs. It was only natural that superlatives would be attached to someone who managed to go from being a state senator to president-elect in four years.

Egypt and Tunisia are looking to become Islamic states belligerent to Israel and basic human rights. Libya could fast become a three-ring circus. The Shah falling in Iran wasn't a success for Carter, it help collapsed his presidency and added greatly to terrorism and instability in the region.

Somehow he made it into Harvard.

Never has Obama disclosed his admission records.

Never has he disclosed his SAT scores.

Never has he disclosed his grades.

He has not revealed any of his writing or papers.

If he was in Harvard because of affirmative action, admit it.

This is Obama's brilliant mind at work with respect to forgein policy? Isreal is the ONLY functioning Democracy in the Middle East.

(Reuters) - French President Nicolas Sarkozy branded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "a liar" in a private conversation with President Barack Obama that was accidentally broadcast to journalists during last week's G20 summit in Cannes.

"I cannot bear Netanyahu, he's a liar," Sarkozy told Obama, unaware that the microphones in their meeting room had been switched on, enabling reporters in a separate location to listen in to a simultaneous translation.

"You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you," Obama replied, according to the French interpreter.

952 days have passed since the last budget was passed by the Demcratic majority Senate. Obama talks big on fiscal responsibility but where is his leadership to pass a budget?

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/rep-paul-ryan-transparency-books-are-cooked-washington

President Obama says he is "All in" for domestic energy production and that job creation is #1 priority. Yet, he has deffered any decision on building of the Keystone XL Pipeline from Canada into the U.S. Going forward with this one project would directly address both those issues. If he were a true leader he would damn the environmental lobby and OK the project.

BUMP

Haven't seen this thread in five months but it's all the more pertinent than ever before.

In the last five months we've seen-

1) The economy basically treading fucking water. The stock markets are doing well - but unemployment is lagging way behind. Unemployment was supposed to stay under 7% after the stimulus, but it has been over 8% and sometimes as high as 10% every month with Obama in office. Home prices are down, gas prices are higher.

2) Not only is approval for ObamaCare at an all time low, but Obama seriously embarrassed himself with statements regarding the SCOTUS pending ObamaCare decision. IN these statements, he proved himself to be hardly the Constituttional scholar he was sold as.

3) The Obama 2012 Campaign is conveniently not talking about Barry's record or successes- instead choosing to instigate petty squabbles about women and dogs.


Again, I have to look into the rear view and ask "WTF was America thinking?!?"

The branding of Obama was brilliant, the blank slate, the hope and change,the historical president- the entire thing must have seemed really compelling to alot of people.

Still, I am amazed- there is absolutely nothing there and I have waited and waited for someone to tell me what are Obama's-

1)Strengths
2)Qualifications
3)Experiences

that made him ready to be president.

You didn't get his post...and his ID.

You are saying "He is bad! He is bad! He is bad!" without EVER offering "and here's my/our idea!".

That's the problem with Politics of Hate; they're not constructive, just destructive.

And that won't win the election.

BTW - you say the economy is treading water - no, it's noticeably improving. Why lie about it? Just face the facts and move onto something ELSE.

Good luck with that, huh?

I've very politely asked what qualified Obama to lead the nation and what his strengths and selling points are.

This thread is old as shit, but I've still gotten no answers.

Killing Osama.

Ending your meaningless war in Iraq.

Managing the Arab Spring without starting another war (which I bet McCain would have commited signifigant troops too.

Getting healthcare reform rolling.

Getting our military prepared for a more efficient combat future.

Killed OBL with the tips and leads that came from the Bush admin (and probably waterboarding) I cheered Obama that night for the move, but if he "inherited the Bush economy" then he also inherited the Bush CIA intel etc.

That Obama is using drones against unconvicted American citizens and detaining Islamists without trial is fine with me, but he fronted pretty hard on Bush about thaat when he was on the outside, didn't he?





> Ending your meaningless war in Iraq.


Obama voted to continue funding the Iraq War, but opposed the troop surge- and his Sec of State Hillary was pretty disparaging of General Petraeus- the guy whose plan has halfway worked. Obama stuck with the plan of his predecessor- nothing new from Dingle Barry here.

If managing means selling out Hosni to Islamist forces, yes- I guess that was management, as is sending billions to the new Muslim Brotherhood government.

AND- why not even a peep from the mouth from Obama when there was a legit uprising in Iran? He commented on Syria, Libya, Yemen, but wouldn't even say SHIT to the Iranians??




> Getting healthcare reform rolling.


If rolling means passing an unpopular bill that is by independent estimates going to cost Americans shitloads of money.

ObamaCare will probably be deemed unconstitutional anyway and it was great to see Dingle Barry open his mouth and show just how fucking stupid he is.

Don't know about that.




Lets also not forget-

Gas prices....
UNEMPLOYMENT....

No more money atom. Sorry, we can't afford pie-in-the-sky liberal programs anymore. Time to tighten the belts, suck it up and PAY THE PIPER. If we don't fix this run away spending now, we're dooming our kids future. Free moldy government cheese isn't worth a life of servitude to an all powerful dictatorship.

So, I take it you voted for Obama?

Wasn't that just a campaign against Bush?

Wasn't the term McSame thrown around endlessly?

Based on these facts, the Obama administration is not to be trusted.

What the did Obama ever do to appear qualified to you?

What did he accomplish in the IL state goevernment?

What did he accomplish as a "communtiy organizer"?

What did he accomplish as a US Senator?

What did he accomplish as an attorney?

I can answer a couple of those questions...

He wasn't part of the establishment. So much so that he's not even a part of his own establishment. Every person or organization the MSM tied him to then propped him up with, he's bailed on because they/it made his "numbers" go down.

In IL he voted "present". Granted, that's a lot more than most politicians do but still, hardly a record of achievement.

He supported Acorn didn't he? That's certainly community worthy. Especially when it comes to getting people loans that didn't deserve them and helping (dead) people vote.

Here's your answer about the US Senate..


As far as being an attorney? I believe he spent a lot of his time teaching other people to be attorneys just like him.

I'd think most "real, Glenn beck, Americans" will stay home on election day instead of voting for any of these clowns.

Romney is a lot like Led Zeplin (okay, he's got this one solitary thing in common with the zep.) They're both repackaged black guys meant to appeal to a biased population.

The Obama strategy will be to break moderate support from Romney by emphasizing the radical nature of the Republican base and Romney's lack of backbone when being pushed by it.

Maybe, go after the moderates republicans and we may gain a few CRUCIAL points.

But to demoralize the conservative base. Convince them they have no one to vote for, perhaps that a vote for Romney is a recrimination of Christianity, guns, ignorance and everything else conservatives stand for.

Then we'll create some breathing room.

This is the first election in my lifetime (Bush vs Dukakis was the first election I was aware of) where we can demoralize the opposition into not voting. That's gonna be a key this round.

How can I put this delicately? After watching what has become of this country in the last three years, there is no way I could possibly vote for Obama. Yes, he's had his detractors that have helped, but the man (and his party) has done the absolute best they could to keep you and I from becoming best of friends. The divide is too great to overcome now. And he as president and head of his party, split that divide wide open.

>

Allow me to edit this a little. How could someone that has railed against Romney since the day he annouced he would run, vote for him in the end? Easy, I see Romney as doing absolutely nothing. Which is just what this country needs right now. Let the war play itself out and bring our boys home. Ignore the rest of the world a while and just let it be. The American people will still go to work tomorrow and they will still build towards their own individual futures, but we don't need (nor ever did) a president that is set on deciding our futures for us. Romney wont do that because he is now and always has been a figurehead. The only reason he'll get the nod is because it's "his turn". I can't stand politics like that. But seeing where Obama is taking us has been worse than anything I can imagine Romney will do by .........doing the nothing he's always been known to do.

Considering I've learned everything I know about Beck by reading here and have never watched him, I guess that means I'm not a real American. Whatever. I've always been of a mind that if you don't vote, you don't get to complain. I don't pretend to sway anyone's vote but I do ask that everyone that can vote, should vote. There are so many places on this planet where the people aren't allowed to. Here it's a right and mostly ignored by the masses.

20% of conservative voters did not vote for McLoser in 2008 according to Gallup. His embrace of illegal immigration/open borders and the Wall Street bailout doomed him. The "Maverick" was so much so that he couldn't deliver his own base. So, per usual, you're wrong. 2008 was a perfect example of a base not turning out. And just about 100% of Jughead's base turned out and still, he only won 52.7% of the total vote. You should be scared. We've seen the damage he's done and won't sit it out again.

Obama's strategy to win in 2012 will be the "FREE" promises- then he will throw some bullshit laden bills to Congress that will never pass and blame the repubs.

He will do this with student loans and probably mortgages.

Obama's race was a "positive" motivating factor for many voters.Blacks with the ethnic pride (as would be if it was the first Italian, Mexican or Polish POTUS candidate) rallied behind Obama, but also some whites who wanted to "make history" or had white guilt to make amends for.

Neither of these constituencies were or are large enough to deliver the presidency.

McCain ran a shitty campaign, picked a polarizing running mate and after 8 years of Bush- enough independents were ready for a change.

I really wonder where the band wagon jumping idiots will be thinking this year.

This is what I want to fucking see.


$10K bounty offered for Obama's college transcripts. We know Bush wasn't a great student and we knew John Kerry was an even worse student BEFORE the 2004 election. We know that Al Gore got a D in science...

We know very little about Obumma, and the media has been more than happy to just to reprint his campaign press releases and run with the feelgood story.

We know he's not a Muslin. Check.

We know he was born in the USA. Check.

BUT what were Barry's grades like?

How did he get into Harvard Law after describing himself as a mediocre student?

Did Obama benefit from affirmative action?

What kind of thesises did Obama pen and do they reflect something different than the media presented to us?




Transparency,transparency,transparency. This was a big buzzword in the 2008 campaign, but apparently something just thrown to the wayside after the suckers had been suckered.

I'm starting to get a premontion about this Owe-Bama guy and his whole mythical image...

It's already been established that he is grounded in the kind of political expediency his campaign claimed that he was against. He voted PRESENT continuously while a state politician and he did a complete 360 on gay marriage when fundraising became an issue. He voted against raising the debt ceiling while in the Senate, pushes for it now. (see the pattern of phoniness?)

I've always maintained that Obama was U.S. born and that he has benefited from the whole birther BS more than he has been hurt.

But Owe-Bamas college records are still NOWHERE to be found. And it seems he was listed on a bio sheet from his own publishing house in the 1990's as being Kenyan born .

My premonition?

Could it be- that Owe-Bama HIMSELF, at some time in his life, identified himself as "Kenyan-born" either for affirmative action benefits, OR, just for the brownie points and currency that such a claim gets you in lefty and academic circles?

Democrat US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren seems to have played up a minute or non-existnet Cherokee heritage to score favors at Harvard. Has Obama pulled the same stunt?

Obama started college in 1979, a time when affirmative action was de riguer, I would find it surprising if he didn't get it. If he lied about being Kenyan born to add to his "mystique" or to gain clout with the kind of lefto douches who look at everything racially- we should know.

Affirmative action is legal and I think there is a time and place for certain exceptions. But is it fair that Elizabeth Warren, who has never lived on an Indian Reservation, was able to still expolit her questionable pedigree and be listed as a "woman of color" while at Harvard? (look at her, she is pretty pale-faced)

Or... would it be fair if Barack Obama -who had a white mother, wealthy grandparents and a father who came to America to study briefly- was also able to game the affirmative action thing, possibly by claiming to be Kenyan born when he was really not?

I think affirmative action was more intended to be a program for the descendants of slaves from impoverished backgrounds instead of lefty snots with a only a slightly darker complexion than my own.

What were Obamas grades and what did he write? ( we knew this about Bush, Gore and Kerry before their campaigns)

How did Obama pay for school?

Was affirmative action involved in Obamas education?

Did Obama ever identify as Kenyan-born, either for academic gain, or just to curry favor with the
diversity-first crowd?

This is a good read about the lack of qualifications and the fawning ass-kissing that Obama received from the media.

Mark my words, you can deny them now, but history and perceptions in the next several years will agree that Obama was highly ineffective and probably unqualified to lead, and was put into office by the national mood against Bush and the fairy tale story the media willingly pushed.

Obama Is Not That Bright


By Jack Kelly


Barack Obama is the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency, historian Michael Beschloss told radio talk show host Don Imus in November of 2008.

"So what is his IQ?" Mr. Imus asked. Mr. Beschloss didn't know. He was just assuming.


There is little evidence to support it. Mr. Obama went to Harvard, but so did George W. Bush, who some liberals consider dumber than dirt. The president won't release his transcripts, so we can't judge by his grades. Mr. Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review, but when he was selected, popularity mattered more than scholarship.

Mr. Obama joined an undistinguished law firm, where he tried no cases. So no help there.

Many cite the president's oratorical skills, but he often rambles when he speaks without a teleprompter. That's because his brain "is moving so fast that the mouth can't keep up," wrote Meghan Daum of the Los Angeles Times.

Columnist Joe Klein said Mr. Obama's first autobiography "may be the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician." But Mr. Obama got help writing "Dreams from My Father" from "his friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers," celebrity journalist Christopher Andersen claimed in his 2009 biography of Barack and Michelle.

"The book's language, oddly specific references, literary devices and themes would bear a jarring similarity to Ayers' own writing," Mr. Andersen wrote.

Biographer David Maraniss published this month his interview with Genevieve Cook, who dated Mr. Obama in New York, but bears little resemblance to the "New York girlfriend" described in "Dreams." That's because she is a composite, Mr. Obama said.

Yet Mr. Obama's description closely resembles radical Diana Oughton, who was Mr. Ayers girlfriend and who blew herself to smithereens in 1970 while building a bomb intended to kill soldiers at Fort Dix, according to the blogger "Bookworm."

Mr. Obama has said a lot of unsmart things: there are 57 states; Canada has a president; "Austrian" is a language; America is "20 centuries" old; Arabic is spoken in Afghanistan. He's called the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) the Maldives, and declared it would be "unprecedented" for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress.


President Obama's stimulus bill didn't stimulate. His subsidies to "green" firms have produced neither the jobs nor the energy he promised. Unemployment on his watch peaked at 10 percent, one of the highest rates since the Great Depression. Deficits are out of control.

"The man who promised everything is delivering nothing," wrote Noemie Emery in the Weekly Standard. "Journalists who wept when he won the election now grind their teeth in despair. ... The gap between sizzle and steak never seemed so large."

Could it be that Mr. Obama's "superior intellect" is a myth created by journalists to mask what may be the thinnest resume of anyone ever elected president? An example of puffery is the description of Mr. Obama as a former "professor of constitutional law." Mr. Obama was a part time instructor at the University of Chicago law school, without the title or status of professor. And, according to blogger Doug Ross, he wasn't very popular with the real professors.

"I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back," Mr. Ross wrote in March 2010. "According to my professor friend, [Obama] had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. ... The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified,"


Mr. Obama's been governing like someone with a resume too thin for a president. He's "incompetent," an "amateur," former President Bill Clinton told Hillary Clinton at a private gathering with friends, according to a new book by Ed Klein. The Clintons have vehemently denied his account.

Even Ms. Daum noticed "the gulf between the brilliant young man who wanted to change the world and the stymied president who can barely pass a piece of legislation." Mr. Obama is just too smart to be a good president, she wrote.

Or not smart enough. "The presidency of Barack Obama is a case study in stupid does," said Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal.

.It's looking like Obamas memoirs have been works of romanticized fiction.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2161817/Obamas-grandfather-Stanley-Armour-Dunham-tortured-British.html


1. Hussein Onyango, Barack's grandfather, wasn't really imprisoned and tortured by the British. Interestingly, this destroys the case that some conservatives have made about Obama's hatred of Great Britain - or at least the primary reason for it.

2. The father of his Indonesian stepfather, Soewarno Martodihardjo, wasn't killed by Dutch soldiers in the fight for independence.

3. Regina, a friend at Occidental who Obama writes about as a symbol of the authentic African-American experience turns out to be based on Carolina Boss, who is white. Regina was the name of her Swiss grandmother.

5. Obama wrote that he broke up with his New York girlfriend in part because she was white. But his next girlfriend, an anthropologist in Chicago, was also white.

7. Obama wrote about his high school friends as an alienated, ne'er-do-well "club of disaffection." In fact, most members of the "Choom Gang" were "decent students and athletes" who went on to successful careers.

8. Obama's mother left his father, not the other way around.

According to excerpts from the same book, Owebama's papa was a communist sympathizer-

A former classmate of President Barack Obama’s father claims that as a student, the Presidential sire viewed the Soviet Union as a “liberating force.”

The recollections of Naranhkiri Tith are published in Barack Obama: The Story, a new biography by Washington Post reporter David Maraniss released today.

Tith, the son of a former Cambodian Prime Minister, was a close friend of Barack Obama Sr. in the early 1960s, when as classmates the two carried on what Maraniss describes as “a debating road show on communism.”

Tith tells Maraniss, “I never was a rightist person, but I definitely did not believe in any kind of too-strong propaganda, so that saved me from the communist movement.” Maraniss goes on:


On the other hand, BARE-ick, as he called Obama, seemed taken by the anticolonialist stance of the Soviet Bloc and ‘saw it as a liberating force.’

Tith tells Maraniss he does not “think [Obama Sr.] ever belonged to the Communist Party, but he definitely had a hopeful view of communism….And we shouldn’t forget that he was a minority Luo in Kenya, so he felt a double fight, also with the Kikuyu. It was double jeopardy for him. In any case he felt oppressed twice over.”


MORE-

http://freebeacon.com/classmate-obama-sr-was-soviet-symp/

Doesn't make Obama a Commie, socialist or anything...

But it does show you how little the mainstream media cared about vetting this asshole and digging into his past a little deeper.

Interestingly, a lot of the folklore about Watergate seems to be losing it's luster.

Bernstein, from what I recall reading about the case, really had little to do with anything. Woodward, on the other hand, did some real legwork, but was actually often just getting the jump on info he had from law enforcement insisders- info that was to be made public in press releases shortly thereafter- and not at Woodwards doing.

Nixon was a socialistic, warmongering asshole- paranoid and shameless as they come. But I will give him credit for sticking up for his guys after they did something criminal, unauthorized and stupid.

Apparently there wasn't much mystery with Deep Throat, Woodward met the guy while in the Navy. Deep throat aka Mark W Felt, used Woodward like a tool to get revenge over being passed up for the FBI Directors job. Not very nobel IMO.

What has Bernstein even done since then? Anything really worth while? I know Woodward has had something of a distinguished and honorable career.

Even with Nixon there was honor among theivs, so to speak.

I highly doubt Obama would have been so chivilress. Look at how he treated the Labor Unions in WI days before the big recall election or fetus that were accidently dilievered from botched abortions. New born baby....meh just leave in on the gurney to die.

Mark Felt was hailed as a "whistleblower" a "patriot" for leaking information to Woodward.

However, the fact itself that Mark Felt was convicted in the FBI's so-called "Black Bag Jobs" of the 1970's which included illegal wiretaps and planting evidence- it's hard to swallow that he was any kind of honest player.

AND.. kind of funny that one of the targets of the FBI Black Bag Jobs was indeed Obama pal Bill Ayers of the lefto kook Weatherman.

If ObamaCare gets struck down by the Supreme Court, will that be a double NO?

It's already a double NO.

He took office and people were losing their jobs and their homes. Blame whoever you want for that but those were the two most important items that needed attending to.

He bailed out banks, Wall Street and gave us health insurance we didn't ask for nor can afford.

And still unemployment and home retention is the major problem.

But the economy is doing just fine innit?

@Vexxxed-

Obama jacked off considerable time and taxpayer money on ObamaCare. He had a Congressional majority and could have done a lot of things that he thought may have stimulated job growth.

Instead, he treated the recession as some kind of natural business cycle that would bounce back in time for 2012. The "Stimulus" was a wackjob waste of money that did little but reward ineffective state governments and pre-empt actual reform. What happened to all of the "shovel ready jobs" that bozo promised America?

Owebama and Biden were stupid enough to keep proclaiming "Recovery Summer" was going to start in 2009, 2010, 2011.

Here's a couple of great new articles about how "hope" in America was shattered by trusting an utter amatuer like Obama.

The first uses the "fading rock star" analogy...

There are few things more uncomfortable to witness than a fading rock star in the process of slipping down the ladder he seemed to scale so adeptly and nimbly what seems like not so long ago.

Four years ago, presidential candidate Barack Obama took Berlin by storm with a soaring speech to some 200,000 adoring fans. Having next to nothing in the way of bona fides on foreign policy, given his scant experience in the United States Senate, Obama needed to score a lot of love on his world tour in an uphill battle to fill that void. He was adored — not for any accomplishment on his part, but rather by simply being him. The crowds cheered and it all was positively glorious.


Fast-forward to 2012, and we see the fading rock star reluctant and refusing to take the world stage, even while his competition takes an important lap around other nations.


http://thehill.com/opinion/columnists/cheri-jacobus/239853-fading-rock-star-obama

The second article, in much more detail, lists the busts and disappointments of Obama. I posted this in it's entirity..


He took office at a time when the U.S. economy was on its worst slide in 75 years, but pushed policies using borrowed money that were more meant to preserve government jobs than broadly help the private sector where the great majority of Americans work, ensuring the jobs crisis continued.

He railed against the heavy spending and big deficits of his predecessor, but blithely backed budgets that had triple the deficits ever seen in American history.

He promised a smart, sweeping overhaul of the U.S. health care system, but ended up giving us a Byzantine mess promoted to the public with myths: that offering subsidized care to tens of millions of people would save money; that people would keep their own doctors; that access to care wouldn’t change; and that rationing would never happen.

He promised a more sophisticated approach to the economy than that of his predecessor, but had so little common sense that his health law actually gave businesses a big financial incentive to discontinue providing health insurance to their employees.

He offered hosannas to genius entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs in his prepared remarks, but when speaking off the cuff betrayed his faculty-lounge view of the world, saying of businesspeople, “if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.”

He swore to bring overdue oversight and honest accounting to the corporate world, but made flagrantly dishonest claims about General Motors paying back its government loans that would have triggered a criminal fraud investigation in the private sector.

He promised to set a high new standard for ethics in the White House, but used a baffling claim of executive privilege to shield his embattled attorney general from the repercussions of a cover-up involving the death of a federal law enforcement officer.

He denounced his predecessor for permitting harsh interrogation tactics with suspected terrorists, but once in office somehow concluded that a better, more moral approach would just be to use drones to assassinate such suspects without getting any information from them.

He presented himself as a shrewd student of Washington politics, but once in office displayed a counterproductive standoffishness to many Democratic lawmakers eager to embrace him, never developing the broad range of personal relationships that often mark a successful presidency.

He ran as a unifying force who would bring in a new era of civility and racial healing to Washington, but once in office embraced ugly, Chicago-style political hardball that saw nothing wrong with his supporters’ loathsome practice of depicting opposition to his policies as being driven by racism.

He constantly offered praise for the wisdom and insights of the American public, but reacted to the broad discontent over Obamacare, high unemployment and vast deficits by saying it was a failure of his administration to properly explain its glorious record to a confused populace – not a predictable reaction to his struggles and ineffectiveness.

And in December 2011 – at a time in which one-quarter of American adults who wanted full-time work couldn’t find it, after a year in which the federal deficit was a staggering $1.3 trillion – here was what Barack Obama had to say for himself in a CBS interview: “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president, with the possible exceptions of Johnson, FDR and Lincoln.”

Unbelievable. If self-reverence were a crime, our current president would be facing a life sentence. For the good of America, let’s pray we have someone else in charge of the federal government come Jan. 20, 2013.

Obama is not qualified to President of the USA, a free market, capitalist, Republic because he is a Marxist. He is the anithesis of the principals our country was founded on.

Re: Is Obama Really Qualified? DEBATE UPDATE!

Until late last night, all I had heard about the debate was news coverage and some YouTube clips. The unaminimous verdict of the media and even a majority of liberal pundits was that Obama was thoroughly spanked by Romney.

So I finally watch this debacle and it just solidifies my contention I've had all along about Baracko being a media driven zilch and not a competent leader. Part of me was actually kind of sad for Obama's lack of connectivity and the damage that was done to image and ego in the debate.

Again, how did America let this bozo get this far?The best theory I've heard is that even crappy food tastes good when you are hungry.

America was hungry for change in 2008 and chose fast food.

The obsession is over and the hype is GONE.




***It's funny and refreshing to see even the most partisan of Obama Girls like Andrew Sullivan admit to the schooling that Obama took and the damage it did to the credibility he never should have had-

Seriously: has that kind of swing ever happened this late in a campaign? Has any candidate lost 18 points among women voters in one night ever? And we are told that when Obama left the stage that night, he was feeling good. That's terrifying. On every single issue, Obama has instantly plummeted into near-oblivion. He still has some personal advantages over Romney - even though they are all much diminished. Obama still has an edge on Medicare, scores much higher on relating to ordinary people, is ahead on foreign policy, and on being moderate, consistent and honest (only 14 percent of swing voters believe Romney is honest). But on the core issues of the economy and the deficit, Romney is now kicking the president's ass:


By a 37% to 24% margin, more swing voters say Romney would improve the job situation. Swing voters favor Romney on the deficit by a two-to-one (41% vs. 20%) margin.... Romney has gained ground on several of these measures since earlier in the campaign. Most notably, Obama and Romney now run even (44% each) in terms of which candidate is the stronger leader. Obama held a 13-point advantage on this a month ago. And Obama’s 14-point edge as the more honest and truthful candidate has narrowed to just five points. In June, Obama held a 17-point lead as the candidate voters thought was more willing to work with leaders from the other party. Today, the candidates run about even on this (45% say Obama, 42% Romney).

Yes, President Obama performed poorly in the 1st Presidential Debate.

Was the 1st Presidential Debate absolutely critical for Mittens to win?

Without a doubt.

Will Mittens' debate bounce disapate?

Probably.

Will President Obama lose the election because of that debate performance?

Probably not.

Do we have a long, long way to go until November 6?

You bet.

While the economy demonstrably improving and Mittens 'triangulating' by talking out of both sides of his mouth simultaneously? I doubt it.

More people out of the workforce- REAL UNEMPLOYMENT is around 14%

RECORD NUMBER of Americans on FOOD STAMPS...

Pathetic quarterly growth...

Household median incomes DOWN...

Most voters know that the U3 unemployment rate is 7.8%, same as when Bush left office. That's good news, people like good news.

> RECORD NUMBER of Americans on FOOD STAMPS...

Thanks, George W. Bush!

> Pathetic quarterly growth...

But a significant improvement over the economic contraction that Obama inherited.

> Household median incomes DOWN...

Thanks, George W. Bush!

Nutty, I said IMPROVING, not perfect. Our economy doesn’t have to be roaring along as it did under Bill Clinton for Obama to win re-election. It just needs to be improving, and it is.

And he wasn't competent or involved enough to draft ANY economic legislation either obviously.

Gotta revisit the past to know what to do in the future..

For the Obamatards who have a constant obsession with 2001-2009 and Bush, we beed to look at 2008 and understand how the Biggest fraud in the history of American politics found his way into office.

America was hungry in 2008, we chose fast food

If that is the case, why is the name Bush constantly brought up every chance a Democrat gets?

Stammering is unecessary.

With regard to the President's level of experience, it is 2012.

President Obama has nearly 4 years of presidential experience, far more than Willard will ever get.
