This is really a reply to all obama apologists.
What is the deal with you people? I am not a bush fan but the double standard is off the charts. Our last president got the tar beat out of him when
he played a few rounds of golf while a war was going on and then he would get the tar beat out of him for vacationing in Texas.
obama is obviously asleep at the wheel. He is obviously in over his head. His response to the collapse of the middle east was a great indication.
His inability to handle Israel is another. He is absent in the budget debate. He is getting it handed to him by the Chinese. Gas is off the charts.
Housing is the worst in 27 years. All taxes are now used to simply pay entitlement programs, everything else is deficit. He spent over $4 trillion
in deficit spending in 2 years! (while whining about the prior prez leaving $1T over 8 years). He continues to spend billions we don't have.
Unemployment remains around 10%. The dollar is in free fall while he prints money. Now, here we are; Earth, on the precipice of death and what does
our leader do? He goes golfing (61
times to be specific
), goes to a party (no pictures please), picks march madness brackets, vacations (again?) in Rio.
"Our hearts go out to the people in Japan," Obama said, telling fellow fans that a donation "would be a great gesture as you are filling out your
Really? This is "making it clear" that the US will do whatever it takes to help Japan?
Here is the whitehouse site with obama's statements: link
The best we can get is this? link
Nothing from the heart,
just more teleprompter words. Then he basically insults the PM of Japan by messing up his name by calling him PM Kan. Is our president called
president barrak? The PM's name is Naoto. Or, more formally, Naoto-san. It is also funny that our president has to qualify his remarks by
name-dropping. "I" just talked to so-and-so.
This is presidential? This is what we now accept as an American response to what is probably the worst disaster in the history of man? This is our
leader? A real president would delay his vacations and would address the world via mass media. He would call on all the world to send help. He
would send every team and expert in the US. He would have every soldier and sailor already stationed in Japan lending assistance. He would do these
things and more. A real president would do...something.
But we don't have a real president. We have off-handed remarks mixing the Japan tragedy with march madness picks. "I think Kansas will take it,
oh, yea, and maybe send a few dollars to someone helping out with that japan thing. But now, let's talk about my picks some more since I like
talking about me."
He pays more attention to his fund raisers. He pays more attention to pandering to certain voting demographics. He has had no problem making very
strong statements against the governors of Wisconsin and Arizona. He has had no problem making very strong statements about that police officer who
arrested that black professor. Worst disaster ever?

It is time to face the music. This guy isn't a president. I wish we could somehow bring Bill Clinton back. Hell, bring back Jimmy Carter even. I
can't even imagine what Reagan would have done but you KNOW it would be VERY presidential. This guy? Anyone, anyone, Bueller?
Oh, and just to make sure we completely cover the whole scorecard.
He has escalated the war in Afghanistan. He has signed the extension of the patriot act. He has kept GITMO open. He has restarted military
tribunrals and has even stated that if one of the prisoners is found guilty he will keep them indefinitely in GITMO anyhow. He extended the bush tax
cuts for the rich.
So. All of that and now he completely fails on Japan.
president obama = fail.
Jimmy Carter must be happy.
I have written my representative and both senators stating they need to begin impeachment proceedings (yes, I know it starts in the house but the
trial is in the senate). I encourage all of you to do the same. Ranting on this website does nothing. I have been lurking for a while but Japan and
obama have brought me online. I have read numerous posts of people saying someone should do something. That someone is you.
