Man this has to be the most biased bull I have ever read. Now I don't like Obama, and I think that he is a terrible president. But most of this was spun completely wrong in order to make it look bad for Obama instead of using facts to bolster the truth that Obama is an awful president.

Let's look shall we?

Touts a Green Energy Company as exemplary that fails a year later.

Yea, like it was HIS fault personally that that company failed.

Using the Gulf Oil Spill to promote Green Energy – instead of cleaning it up.

What was he supposed to do? Go out there with a mop and bucket and clean it up himself single handed?

Thinking the Tea Party is a passing fad – or that they are racists.

Glad we have you here as our mind reader in chief. How do you know he thought this?

Pulling out of Iraq with no clear victory over insurgent forces.

So? It's Iraq's problem, besides, most people blame him for NOT pulling out of Iraq, and think the Iraq war is still going strong. So which is it? Are we still at war or have we withdrawn, you can't blame him for both simultaneously.

Trying to re-write history through speeches – with inaccurate information

That's Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, and FOX News.

Getting a Nobel Prize for being the most ineffective President in the history of the United States, though some say it was for his pigment.

He got the Nobel Prize for NOT being George W Bush. (or some say that speech in Cairo)

Putting all legislation on the Internet for five days before it comes to a vote.

Let me introduce you to THOMAS Just because you don't bother to look it up, doesn't mean it's not there.

Returning the bust of Churchill to the Brits.

This is a failing? Really?

Giving a collection of DVDs to the British PM.

I guess he should have gotten him the blue ray huh?

Denying the notion of American Exceptionalism.

Ok O'Reilly,

Promising to close Gitmo — failing to do so.

Can we house them at your house? No? Well, find us a place to put these people we don't ever plan on releasing and then they can close gitmo.

Securing the Olympics for Chicago in 2016.

Don't forget to blame Oprah too.

Naming numerous Communists/Socialists/Progressives to his various Czar positions and then watching them scurry for cover when Beck begins to call them out, forcing them to resign.

Uh huh, sure, I guess Obama is the first president in HISTORY to ever appoint a Czar, don't get me wrong, I don't like the idea of a Czar for anything, but other presidents did it, why this one can't is beyond me. AND where is the proof that these were "numerous communists/socialists/progressives"? I guess that's just a matter of opinion and not fact, and as it's opinion, doesn't make it a failure on Obama's part.

Government races for NJ, VA and the Senate Seat in Mass.

How is THIS Obama's fault?

The rest of it (cause I'm running out of characters) is going to have to wait. But for now, let's look at the above BS, why don't you point out REAL failings on Obama's part instead of regurgitating stuff spewed out by FOX News, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly?

All you have to do is read up on economics and stop believing in one side verses the other. Economics and Facts do not lie. They just are. Math is math. 1= 1 and so on.

Besides, to be completely honest, When even in our history is the president to blame for the economy. I thought it was the house and congress or am I wrong?

when you're in a hole, rule #1 is, stop digging. Obama inherited a troubled economy and made it worse with unproductive government spending. even if we tax the crap out of the rich it won't balance the budget. our federal gummint is way too big for the tax base. we are have a huge debt and it is getting bigger every minute.

Obama has called for political civility and can only sit and watch as Jim Hoffa calls good Americans SOBs and offers war on them.

he admitted the 2010 elections were a shallacking...and continues his same policies, in spite of the voters' clear desire for a change of direction.

frankly I think keeping Gitmo open and not running from Iraq and Afghanistan were good calls.

I really wouldnt be surprised if he does go down as one of the worst presidents ever. He hasn't done much of anything, and the few principles he had he utterly destroyed by himself (gulf cleanup fiasco.. bribes to 'green energy' that took the money and ran etc).

But I still think he will get re-elected. But only because the GOP doesn't have anything better to offer...

posted on Sep, 9 2011 @ 11:49 AM
Now one thing that Obama did that I think IS and epic failure on his part was the bailing out of GM and Chrysler. As Ford proved, these companies did not need a bailout and we should not have given them one.

Another thing that Obama did that I find an epic failure is not standing up to the GOP/TEA Party. The problem with being as weak as Obama is, no one takes you seriously and they walk all over you. He should grow a spine and deal with the GOP/TEA Party as they have dealt with him, 0 compromise.

No, the markets are "speculating" of Greece default that seems imminent as the IMF rejection of Obama second bailout. The death line for default is approaching. This will take France, Germany and Swiss banks down, like a domino effect will impact the US.

Thanks to bring some real facts, I am very disappointed with Obama also and to think that for a littler big I was hopeful he would tackle big interest in favor of the people but he like most presidents before him and those that will come after him are nothing but whores to big interest.

Yes but we just had braking news that Greece is not by any means going to default on its obligations and that the word around are nothing but rumors to bring down the EU.

Still Greece is now actually borrowing just to keep be able to pay payroll.

There's more talk about getting rid of the euro altogether than trying to unify an uneven Europe. There is so much disparity between nations that there will always be resentment, unless one country (hint hint) gets to "lead" all the others in the EU.

At the end either the IMF bailout is approved of everybody is going down with Greece, actually after announcement of a stimulus in the US soon to be approved "or else" the speculators brings the markets back in the positive, after all the 450 billions already is showing the GDP looking better, but that is just a mirage, the US has been plying this way to keep numbers looking good.

But for some reason the rumors of a EU going down is no helping the positive of "news of another stimulus", and the markets are waiting to see what will happen this weekend and If Greece will default.

He also give Queen Elizabeth II an iPod, apparently it was filled with all of Obama's speeches. I don't know about you, but that sounds pretty narcissistic. The man clearly has no respect for the United Kingdom and the British Commonwealth - many of which are among our top allies (Canada, Australia, the UK, etc). He also gave Gordon Brown's children model airplanes that probably came from the White House Gift Shop ...

The sooner this clown is out of office the better. January 21st 2013 can't come soon enough, I am already planning a party!

I see it more here, than those in the states, but the euro is SOOOO tied to the NYSE. When the market opens low, I can be assured that the dollar will rise and the euro will fall.
What this tells me is that the US market is already way too tied to the EU.
Perhaps, we're already at a one-world monetary market and we just don't know it yet.

While I agree that Obama will be a one term president, once he is out then What, we just going to have another private interest clown in the White house. So what is the big deal.

It is my friend, remember "globalization", that is why anything that happens with the Euro and with EU countries big banks, will be reflected in the US markets.

Actually the announcement of another stimulus was to bring markets back up because it means that money is going into the streets but is not so, because the Greek problem is like dark cloud that is not going away until it gets bailout.

The ultimate irony. Obama was once called the first global president.

WASHINGTON — Barack Obama "is our first global president," according to historian Douglas Brinkley.


He may bring down the first global economy.

Well he may be the first global president because he has align himself with the NWO.

But remember he can not bring down the economy because the economy is already down, it started with the US housing market mess that were spread wider than many even dreamed for, including China, no even investors in China knew how much of their investments were in the US housing.

While it was the US big financial institutions in 2008 the ones that create the mess through years, it was not the work of Obama. It was the work of the special interest running the nation.that special interest is still very much running the show.

I think a lot of people had specific hope that he or at least his government would achieve. I didn't vote for the man, but being environmental I really hoped for some "change" to enviro laws and so on. Instead we got the usual bs about global warming and the EPA regulating lightbulbs. Lame. But the gulf coast fiasco I blame him personally for .. bent over backwards for special interest and a foreign oil company while sacrificing the coast, the environment, and all her people and animals. I can't recall ever seeing such a disgusting disgrace as Obama walking up the beach with "volunteers" following cleaning, then packed into buses and driven away.

But that's the nature of Government in general isn't it? To disappoint.
