When I first saw the headline of the article I was curious because I wondered how ANYONE could think Obama was a successful President, however, I hadn't considered the case that what is happening is exactly what he wanted to happen. Obama is successful in that our country is on the decline thanks to his failed leadership and suspect policies and agendas. This is what he WANTS. He wants a weak and declining America and boy has he been successful in making sure that happens under his Presidency.

If you put Obama's policies and actions in the above context then everything he is doing makes complete sense. He is actively trying to destroy our country. Lower our standard of living and destroy out morale.


“Russian president Vladimir Putin, is telling us that he will not extradite Edward Snowden, that Snowden’s in Moscow and he’s free to fly wherever he wants. There have been conflicting stories coming out of Russia. Snowden is there; Snowden isn’t there. And again, I had people yesterday say, ‘Boy, don’t you just love the way Putin and the ChiComs are just handing it to Obama?’

I said, ‘You guys are totally misunderstanding.’ Yeah, Putin may look like he’s embarrassing Obama, but this is exactly what Obama wants– Obama is reveling in the idea here of a deflated, declining superpower status…Obama’s not taking this personally, that Putin is doing whatever he’s doing.

All it means to Obama is that the United States isn’t as feared nor is it as respected. In Hong Kong they wouldn’t extradite Snowden. I’m telling you, this is right up Obama’s alley, to preside over the decline of the superpower once known as the United States. Look, there isn’t any doubt about this any more. There’s no doubt about what Obama’s agenda is. There’s no doubt about what his plans for transforming the country are, and there’s no doubt that he’s just profoundly successful with all this.“

All politicians are liars. They are only in it to gain power and wealth. Has Obama been successful in screwing over the country? Yes. But I've been successful myself because I don't rely on government to determine my success.
You could put Lenin in office, and that'll probably happen sooner or later, and the only people affected will be those that rely, trust, adhere to government.

He's certainly been profoundly successful at dividing the nation.

Republicans refusing to allow Obama to do anything does not make him an unsuccessful president. The republicans are a pitiful bunch

That's what happens when only one person in over 300 million makes choices for everyone else. I wish the founding fathers had envisioned more for our government then just the President...

Oh, wait.

With all due respect, that has to be the dumbest thing I've read/heard in a long time.

Why in the hell would Obama want the reputation of having ruined America? How does that in any way make him look good as a president? Why would Obama not want to look good as a president?

I truly believe Obama had some good intentions early on, but got caught up in the quagmire that is Congress, and I don't think he had what it took to get through that quagmire. He sold out a few times, to just get something done, and I'm sad about that.

But no way did Obama set out to fail.

Were his first 2 year accomplishments, when he had no resistance at all, successes for the nation as a whole?

You tell me.




During his first two years in office, Obama signed into law economic stimulus legislation in response to the Great Recession in the form of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010. Other major domestic initiatives in his first term included the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, often referred to as "Obamacare"; the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act; and the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010. In foreign policy, Obama ended U.S. military involvement in the Iraq War, increased U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan, signed the New START arms control treaty with Russia, ordered U.S. military involvement in Libya in opposition to Muammar Gaddafi, and ordered the military operation that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden.

Do you think the Congress isn't playing the same game to bring this country down as the POTUS?

Look at the EU! Not each individual country of the EU, because now they are part of the collective. Their sovereignty is now only valid with approval of the whole!

The phrase use to be "The New World Order", but for those paying attention, it has now changed to a "One World Government". Different words, same intentions......

It's really about the acceleration of the inexorable descent into socialism that he has presided over.

The ACA is just a component of the hugely successful Cloward–Piven strategy.

I have to disagree with the premise.

Hang on, let me look outside...okay I'm back. Good news. The Country has not been destroyed! Let me look up a couple of things....okay back...the constitution still stands. It's still there, still in tact.

My wife is gainfully employed. I started a business, wildly successful no less. Everyone in my immediate family that can work, has a job and all of my close friends that can work have jobs as well. That's in Maryland, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Texas, California, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Utah, Arizona, DC, Florida and New York.

We all have health insurance, Cars that work, Healthy children, we haven't been attacked by terrorists, been caught up in any race riots, been victims of violent crimes etc.

I'm not saying that everyone in the country is in great shape or that everyone has insurance and that we still don't have some problems. But Obama hasn't ruined this country. He hasn't gone far enough on a few things and I'm not 100% happy with him.

But he has been successful. Only those brainwashed by right wing media thing he's the worst president. Stop listening to that garbage and get out and see for yourselves. Seriously.

And Let's Talk about ACA. Keep in mind that Obama got elected in large part because he promised healthcare reform and people wanted it. Do a google search and you'll get a million hits half saying it's a good thing and half saying it's bad, in my experience and with everyone I know, it's been 80% good 20% bad. That's personal experience with my family, my extended family and my friends.

Now if something is broken, being former Army, former restaurant manager, current business owner, former elected official and currently co-running a family with my wife...if the car breaks down, we don't "repeal" it by throwing it away, we fix it first.

Republicans, news flash, tell us what's wrong and incrementally fix health care, work with Obama, he said he would, then when/if he doesn't tell us so that we know he lies, but they won't they somehow don't understand the word fix or repair, only the word repeal.

The Blaze and Rush Limbaugh dumb meet dumber. 69% of promises made while running for President has been kept. Not too bad.

Do you honestly think Obama sits in the oval office, rubs his hands together and says, "So lets continue ruining the USA. How else can we destroy this country?"

You honestly think that? Really?

I'm sorry, but I'm afraid Hollywood has colored our ideas about good vs. evil. James Bond-style villains don't really exist in the real world. Tyrants and despots are far more complex. No one actually wants to be evil for evil's sake. No one wants to destroy something unless they truly believe they are the bringer of something better.

Cars in real life don't explode like in Michael Bay movies, and evil isn't a black and white trait. People honestly do what they do because they believe it to be the right thing for themselves and those around them.

The U.S has been on the decline for decades and whoever becomes POTUS will not turn this ship around, unless heavy investment is made to promote manufacturing and not just in the arms industry.

The same can be said for the U.K, but whilst we remain in the E.U, the Germans and the French will keep it that way.

The U.S should be in a position to turn it around, after all, they are masters of their own destiny.

No resistance at all? Did you forget the filibusters? Did you forget that there weren't the required 60 Democratic votes needed to pass legislation?

Thank God.

What particular failed policy that he was pushing are you referencing?

Let's get specific.
