I'd like to see a verified (and qualified) source say that he is a good leader.

I'm patient.



Just a thought, but, I can't remember any verified and qualified sources say that Reagan, Bush, Clinton, or Bush II were good leaders. In fact, I don't think there is any "source" qualified to make that determination. That being said, I don't think he's a great leader, but I think he's done a far better job than Bush or Bush II, not as good as Clinton or Reagan. Anyway, I was born in '75, so I haven't even seen a pro-American president in my lifetime, so what do I know anyhow?

I don't know what else to feel for this guy...

I think he finally realized this mess America is in, and by now the system is on the verge of collapse.
This is not a good impression to say the least, coming from the man himself.

Peace

I don't feel sorry for him for one second

Assuming all this is true..

He walked in to a hell of a mess with conviction, promises, energy, and "solutions". He riled up an entire nation, including myself. I was pregnant at the time, his speeches would inevitably move me to tears every single time. I shouted his damn name from the rooftops and supported him like no other candidate before him that I voted for. I stood in line to vote for him IN LABOR, having to stop and breathe through contractions. He gave our entire nation hope, he had the COURAGE to take on the hopes of America...and now he is sulking? Isolated? Where did the courage go? How many of the OWS attendees voted for him? Oh, is must be terrible, seeing the people who put you in office protesting the state of the nation, taking your courage and hope and turning it around on the people you work for. Sad day. He deserves it.

Shame on him for taking what should have been the most amazing election of our lifetime and turning it in to a joke. Shame on him for making a new mother feel like with his help her child would grow up in a country worth living in, and then not following through. Oh, he didn't know how hard it was going to be? If that is the case, then he is truly ignorant, and ignorance is something I have slim to no patience for. Oh, he is just a human like you and I? Human, yes, but like you and I? I certainly hope not. I don't know about you, but I would never engage in the propagation of lies and ignorance to the extent of which he has.
MOST OF ALL
Shame on him for rallying an entire nation of people around a presidential candidate like never before, and then snatching the rug out from under us all leaving us just as jaded and bitter as we were under Bush.


Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
Winston Churchill

I'm still debating if I can blame my vote on pregnancy hormones.
If the man that once had an entire country standing behind him suddenly finds himself in isolation, then it should be obvious that something has gone terribly wrong. Perhaps it is time for him to shut up and listen to America.


This post really moved me. During the elections I scoffed at my friends that were rallying behind President Obama because I knew the POTUS is just a figurehead. It's amazing more people don't realize this. Your "savior" isn't the president, sorry to break your hearts all at once.

To the woman above, I applaud you for sticking to your convictions and doing what you think is right even at the end of a pregnancy. It speaks volumes of your character. I'm sorry it didn't work out.

Obama knows exactly what he is doing.
*Creating and pursuing wars in the Middle East in the name of "democracy" when that system of government can never fit in a Muslim country. Democracies can only flourish in places where the rights of political minorities and women are respected.  That is not Islam. He knows this, so his only real goal is to set up hard line Islamic states.
*Bringing the USA down. Economically, politically, socially.

Islamic Jihad is back for the second time. Every move he makes, with full consent by the other infested leadership - is taking us to the End times. If you have no faith in Jesus Christ, you simply cannot accept this reality. Or maybe you can -

Everything this man does is dictated, controlled and according to plan. And he is a willing participant. You do not get to the "top" anymore without selling your soul to the devil. Literally.

His actions do not match his words - EVER. And that is how you know a good or bad tree - by their FRUIT. His fruit is rotten to the core.

Anybody who feels sorry for Obama needs to rethink their existence.

This is the guy who has done the most damage than any other POTUS, even Carter.

Bring Carter back please.....Obama is Carter's dream of dreams.
If only He could have done what Obama has done !

Obama's supporters' excuses and references to "well others have done it" do not justify his damage.

Ex-POTUS's who have done damage to YOU and YOUR families don't come anywhere near Obama !

List of Lies
(not a short list
)

This guy had a full Dem Congress and all He(they) did was xfer ALL the money out of the US Treasury...

ALL of it !!!!


Now there's no way to get straight !



The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sometimes only, to friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist.

He always was a lone wolf, ever since he was born





While there is no indication Obama is walking the halls of the White House late at night, talking to the portraits of former presidents

Well, I bet Carter is listening and drooling and hissing at the same time





Obama conceded in one television interview recently that Americans are not “better off than they were four years ago”

", and will be even worse off if I am re-elected in 2012"





Aimless Obama walks alone

except during the gun walking of fast and furious




next thing we will hear is that he got sunburn from a defective Solyndra self tanning machine

who will he blame for that one?


Maybe he is a puppet of TPTB, BUT,

it was his own choice....yes?

I agree that a lot of people wanted a savior, but a lot more people just deeply wanted things to change. I guess didn't work out very well for anyone.

This is a quite disturbing view of a lost president with comparisons to Carter now being made by people from all ends of the political spectrum. Comparisons to Carter are never a good sign for a president.


So says Michael Goodwin, author at the New York Post naming "anonymous sources" in an article that rambles on from the President to the "Hooligans on Wall Street" who have "Attacked police" to Steve Jobs and iTunes.

Not buying your claim (or the authors) that people from "all ends of the political spectrum" have contributed to Goodwin's story.

Goodwin has a long history of making false and politically driven claims...the most comedic of which was debunked by Jon Stewart when Goodwin falselty claimed that the symbol for the Nuclear Summit was a symbol of Islam - Crescent moon and no coincidence it was at a Presidential Event when in reality it was simply the textbook symbol for the Atom.

Absent a credible source this OP is not news, but rather gossip.

Here we see some more "lone wolf" facts.

(from Oct 10, 2011)

Barack Obama has so humbled American finances and destroyed the average family’s wealth that even the mainstream media can no longer cover up his dismal record. Today’s issue of the New York Times ran a featured story entitled, “Recession Officially Over, U.S. Incomes Kept Falling” The story highlights a study by two former Census Bureau officials, Gordon W. Green Jr. and John F. Coder, which found Americans have lost more wealth under the Obama administration than in the midst of the recession under George W. Bush. Altogether, the recession and Obama’s policies created the largest reduction in the American standard of living in decades. (Read the report’s major findings here.) Obama’s policies have inflated store prices, debased the dollar’s purchasing power, and led to a glut of unemployed who are not drawing a paycheck. However, government workers suffered the smallest income drop, meaning Obama’s policies encourage government dependence and a further spiral toward economic catastrophe.

The American workers have been chopped and channeled.




The results have been ruinous. The Consumer Price Index has risen 12 of the last 14 months. While all costs are up 3.8 percent since last year, gasoline and fuel oil have increased by 32 and 35 percent, respectively. The Producer Price Index doubled from August 2010 to April 2011 and edged yet higher this summer. Despite all this, the president told employers in February not to worry about inflation, because “we’re not seeing a broad-based inflation trend.”

Well Barack, what would a real "broad based inflation trend" look like then if this ain't it ?



PLEASE Read the Whole Article

Obama’s Policies Caused Greatest U.S. Wealth Decline in Decades


Next we will be hearing Obama's new plan to reduce the unemployment rate (after His new Jobs Bill fails).

He will simply include new unemployment applications as "newly created jobs" !!!

After all, looking for a job is hard work!
And with the never ending extensions, it sure could be "permanent"

Plenty of them. Maybe you have a problem recognizing facts?

Politifact keeps decent track of promises kept and broken.

Trim out all the BS in your link, read the actual source he cites and what you get is that purchasing power in the USA has fallen due to inflation in

“the prices of oil products and many foods.”

And that is accurate..
France’s Sarkozy Urges Action Against the ‘Plague’ of Food Price Surges
www.bloomberg.com...


Corn futures advanced 77 percent in the past 12 months in Chicago trading, a global benchmark,
rice gained 39 percent
and sugar jumped 64 percent.
There will be shortages in corn, wheat, soybeans, coffee and cocoa this year or next, according to Utrecht, Netherlands-based Rabobank Groep. Prices also rose after droughts and floods from Australia to Canada ruined crops last year. European farmers are now contending with their driest growing season in more than three decades.




Coffee, for instance, is up 40 percent. Celery is 28 percent higher while butter prices rose 26.4 percent. Rounding out the top five are bacon, at 23.5 percent, and cabbage, at 23.3 percent.

www.cnbc.com...

Food prices have gone up due to (1) It is a safe place for investors to put thier money, people need to eat and (2) A host of natural disasters/envirornmental weirdness effecting crops...you can debate the AGW vs. Non AGW someplace else, but it is a reality.

Oil have been driven by instability in the Middle East and the Arab Spring.

Either way claiming that President Obama is responsible for the world wide spike in food or energy prices is really out there.

excuses excuses.

politifact is not on my list, BUT,

Obama speaks for himself.

many of the "politifacts" are simple add ons that went through the cracks.
and many are minor issues in comparison to the hugh failures.

The "Truth-O-Meter" seems to contradict itself

It seems the "lies" are about big issues.
The "truths" are small time, and border on "little white lies"

read the rebuttals.


and I never heard obama actually endorse some of those cited.


The cold fact is that all the money was given away.

hope everybody is happy that had to pay for it.

look at the real results on record.

Here's a few PolitiFact Favorites of mine.


"The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents – more than twice as many as there were in 2004."
-"True, with credit to Bush"



"Foreign aid makes up about 1 percent of our entire budget."
Brilliant deduction Watson!


"The United States has "one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world."
-"Obama uses GOP talking point, and gets it right"

(no thanks to His own thinking however)


"FDR was called a socialist and a communist."
WOW !


"Mathematically, the White Sox can still get in the playoffs."
Another stroke of genius



""The health care plan for members of Congress "is no better than the janitor who cleans their offices.""
-"Janitors, Senators - everyone's treated the same under federal health care"

What about janitors in the Sears Tower ?


"Nobody has ever escaped from one of our federal 'supermax' prisons."
Whooptee Doo !


"Washing your hands and covering your mouth when you cough "makes a huge difference" in reducing transmission of the flu."
Well I never could'a figured that one out by myself !



"More than 25 million Americans are unemployed. More than 50 million live without health insurance. Perhaps 100 million live in poverty."
-"The numbers have merit, but some definitions aren't accurate"
By the way Mr. President, how come no help from the Phlemocrat Congress in years 1 and 2 ?

Sad, Sad......

Obama can not even pass a budget even when he had full control of Congress. This blunder for a President is an Epic failure. He even bombs Libya and starts a Third war. Misappropriated the Stimulus money to go to banks whne it should have went to what he is touting now about fixing the infrastructure. I don't think all of the tarp money is spent yet and now he wants to increase taxes and asks for more stimulus? Alienated Israel. Lets his wife gallavant around the world on the taxpayers dime. What a joke.

Your thinking is strange. You seem to think that when I point out BS, that I am defending or making excuses for the President.

I am not. I am pointing out dishonesty and lies.

How is that a contradiction? They do not interject idealogy and tell the reader which issues are important, they simply tell the reader which promises have been kept or broken and which statements are true or false.

Strange that you try and fail fail in discrediting Politifact in one post and then go on to cite them in a long rambling post that follows.

You don't seem to want to discuss facts, either pro or anti Pres. Obama. Just Spin, Spin, Spin and you confuse laughing emoticons for substance.

I am not interested in BS from either the Left or the RIght.

Deny ignorance.....peace out.
