President Obama has done many 'questionable' and 'not so agreeable' things during his time in office.

Of course, this would be according to most who disagree with his politics and his general way of doing 'business'.

Supporters of Obama view his 'accomplishments' as all good.

Perhaps it's time somebody actually shows us how those 'accomplishments' have benefited the majority of American citizens.

The author of this article has a long list.

Perhaps a few things are missing ?

Is Obama's general way of doing 'business' good for people or good for special interest groups ?

some samples from the story;


• $6 trillion in new national debt under Obama…after he promised to decrease the deficit.

• Obamacare — A massive and incredibly convoluted bill which exponentially increases the federal government’s control over our personal lives…which neither Obama nor a single Democrat even read before passing, and which will likely bankrupt the nation.

• In both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, the Obama campaign purposely disabled the credit card verification system for its Web site donations, allowing anyone from any foreign country to donate with no limit and no proof of identity; in both elections it was demonstrated that people overseas and people with obviously false identities were able to donate to Obama campaign, in direct violation of several laws. To this day it is not known what percentage of Obama’s campaign funds are illegally obtained, since there is no documentation.


Long List
Why Obama Thought He Could Get Away With Obamacare

What has Obama done FOR You ?



What has Obama done TO You ?




What are Your "Favorites" ?

He made you mad that is worth something.

I can start a list of what I like when you tell me what it was that made you mad enough to use such large fonts.

There are many on that list that I agree with, but a couple I do not.


Spent 20 years listening to a racist anti-American pastor (Rev. Jeremiah Wright)....


It could be said that the pastor has some extreme views and does not soften his approach at all, but he does have some very good points and we must remember that context is key.


Alienating and isolating Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East.


I do not believe we are alienating or isolating Israel. Obama's action have been "friendly" to Israel....he just doesn't bow-down like the NeoCons have. I think we need to step further back from Israel and treat them as we do any other nation.

Overall, we could also say that many items on that list are part of the entire political structure within the US and not policy of Obama.

There is a lot of mistakes in the list on that web site. But I guess people who want slanted news ignore facts.

Fast and Furious started under Bush as Wide Receiver. Arizona allowed the guns to cross the border when they were told not to let them.

The cash for clunkers was a secret way of getting rid of vehicles that were known were going to fail and cause major recalls on the American car industries. So they destroyed them or shipped them overseas to get rid of them. Then went on attack for foreign car makers who had the identical problems and forced them to do the recalls. So really he fixed Bushs screw up.

And Obama did not create the unemployment he inherited it from a crashed economy from Bush.

There are many more problems with the list.

1) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval

2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton – just like Bush did

3) Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn’t have any

4) Has close ties to Wall St., but pretends to support Occupy Wall St.

5) Broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay

6) Supported the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like Bush

7) Waged the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president, which was the opposite of what he had promised

Want 246 more lies?:

www.frontpagemag.com...

This man (term used loosely) is a pathological liar that for some reason still has support from those suffering the most from his BS as though the belief of a NEW America will somehow materialize under his leadership.

Wake up!

Obama is destroying the US and has every gun in the World pointed at the Nation because of him.

Peace

I find this one funny.



Insulted the British people by rudely returning to them a bust of Churchill which previously had been a ceremonial gift on display at the White House; when later confronted on this inexplicable action, he lied about it.


For people who do not know Rupert Murdochs empire was built on attacking this very guy for war mongering and lying to the government in order to continue the war. The article destroyed Churchill and forced him to resign control of the war. It was a trophy for the Bush/Murdoch team.

Oh boy where to start because the person who wrote this article needs to learn how to fact check.



• $6 trillion in new national debt under Obama…after he promised to decrease the deficit.

The deficit is dropping a quick look at the debt clock shows this to be fact. Debt Clock


• Billions of taxpayer dollars gambled on “green” companies like Solyndra, NextEra, Ener1, Solar Trust and many others — all of which went bankrupt.

First Solyndra started under Bush the DOE didn't need permission from Obama to do anything. Some of the other companies went under and Obama gets the blame for them.


• An intentional refusal to enforce federal immigration laws.

This one is funny. Obama deported more illegals in his first four years than the previous admin did in eight.


• Alienating and isolating Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East.

Anyone that thinks Israel is our ally is an idiot. Israel uses America for what it can get out of it.


• Stopped American oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, allowing other nations with worse environmental records to drill instead — thereby managing to both weaken our economy and damage the environment simultaneously.


The only drilling he stopped was the deep water drilling. And America alone doesn't control the Gulf Mexico and Cuba has a say as to what happens in the Gulf also.


• Blocked continued construction of the Keystone Pipeline, thereby intentionally reducing energy resources for the US and forcing Canada to sell more of its oil to China.

Wrong the oil from keystone was for export only in no way would it help with energy here in the states. Not to mention it was going to a tax free zone so America would lose out on getting anything.

But...



"By the time the Obama administration took office in late January 2009, the loan programs' staff had already established a goal of, and timeline for, issuing the company a conditional loan guarantee commitment in March 2009," said Jonathan Silver, who heads the Energy loan program.

Republicans pushed back hard against this version of events, unearthing internal Energy Department emails that indicate the panel evaluating the loans had made the unanimous decision to shelve Solyndra's application two weeks before Obama took office.

Blaming the failed loan on the Bush administration marked an abrupt turn for the Energy Department, which had championed the Solyndra loan as a model for its efforts to build a so-called "green energy" industry that creates jobs and safeguards the environment. The Solyndra loan was so central to this strategy that the administration initially planned to have Obama personally announce it, and later sent the president to the company's solar panel manufacturing facility in Fremont, California to celebrate its work.

Maybe you should learn how to read. The author said Obama promised the deficit would drop not the debt. And Solyndra was Bush's failure not Obama's.

CNN On Solyndra Loan: Bush Started It, There’s No Evidence of Wrongdoing, And Romney’s Attacks Are Made Up



It was started by Bush: The DOE loan program that funded Solyndra was actually started by President Bush in 2005. It was intended to provide government support for “innovative technologies”…. In fact, as Climate Progress reported back in September, the “Bush Administration advanced the Solyndra loan guarantee for two years” before Obama became President.

And read your own links.


After spending months touting the Obama administration's decision to loan $535 million to the California solar energy upstart Solyndra, top officials took a new tack Wednesday while testifying before Congress about the company's abrupt shut-down and bankruptcy: the loan, they said, was actually the Bush administration's idea. The Energy Department's top lending officer told Congress that the Solyndra loan application was not only filed during President Bush's term, but it surged towards completion before Obama took office in January 2009.

Obama's job is to represent and tame those underneath him. When politics don't go the right way, it's going to be the president's job to represent the outcome of what went wrong and it's his job to correct mistakes that happen under his administration but he doesn't as if it's all a part of his plan. If someone disagrees, he'll have a tantrum like a little kid until he gets it his way. If the GOP does something against his wishes, and it does something bad to the US in general, it's going to be Obama's fault. This applies to ANY president in office. If they don't know how to be a leader, they should not be in office. The president's job is to be a leader, not a dictator. Very few actually want to follow him, in fact a lot of Democrats disagree with Obama and don't want to associate themselves with him.

When you run a company and someone does something bad, you take the blame because it is your company and it is your responsibility to lead by example. If your employees are conning customers, then it's your fault for being a bad leader. This is the truth of business and being a President of a country is no different. So when people blame Obama or Bush, it means their administration and they have the right to say so since it is their fault for the failures under their administration. Bush was stubborn and didn't pass the blame, but instead lived in fantasy land. Obama passes the blame on anyone he can blame and never once apologized for the mistakes of his administration. He has no right to call himself a leader.

lets see, oil is a global commodity, supply increases, price generally comes down, the gulf has mostly US waters, therefore we have lots of areas in the gulf to take our oil, anwar is our oil too. Blame it all on bush, typical liberal tactic, after so many years of YOUR policies you must find blame where it belongs. The promises that were made to get elected were mostly lies and time will tell that tale and before the typical parroting changes tide understand that the surge of spending imbalance will go nuclear when this glorious new healthcare kicks in. Most of this liars resume stinks to siberia and I see nothing good on the horizon.....

Where do you make this stuff up from? Do you dream it or just think of it off the top of your head at the moment you type?
You have No Facts at All.
You might try reading:A Review of ATF’s Operation Fast
and Furious and Related Matters.

On October 31, 2009, special agents working in the Phoenix office of the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) received
information from a local gun store about the recent purchases of multiple AK-
47 style rifles by four individuals

Oversight committee
Bush wasn't the POTUS in 2009, or was he?
Obama said:

"I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration," Obama responded. "When (Attorney General) Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned an inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable."

YES, Big Shock,,, Obama LIED!


Our ruling
Obama said that the Fast and Furious program began "under the previous administration." That is not the case; Fast and Furious did begin during the time Obama held office.

Another similar program, called Operation Wide Receiver, did happen during the Bush administration, and a recent inspector general’s report criticized both operations as ineffective and seriously flawed.

But Operation Wide Receiver is not the same thing as the Fast and Furious program. We rate Obama’s statement False.

PolitiFact
The Cash for Clunks,,, What is wrong with you?
That program had to do with age,weight and MPG the vehicle was rated for, as a matter of fact, there are many vehicles that were the same year but only four (4) cylinders that did not qualify.


The Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS), colloquially known as "cash for clunkers", was a $3 billion U.S. federal scrappage program intended to provide economic incentives to U.S. residents to purchase a new, more fuel-efficient vehicle when trading in a less fuel-efficient vehicle.



Vehicle must be less than 25 years old on the trade-in date.
Only the purchase or 5 year minimum lease of new vehicles qualify.
Generally, trade-in vehicles must get a weighted combined average rating of 18 or fewer miles per gallon (some very large pickup trucks and cargo vans have different requirements).
Trade-in vehicles must be registered and insured continuously for the full year preceding the trade-in.
Trade-in vehicles must be in driveable condition.
The program ran from July 1, 2009 until August 24, 2009
The program requires the scrapping of the eligible trade-in vehicle and that the dealer disclose to the customer an estimate of the scrap value of the trade-in. The scrap value, however minimal, will be in addition to the rebate, and not in place of the rebate.
The new car bought under the plan must have a suggested retail price of no more than $45,000, and for passenger automobiles, the new vehicle must have a combined fuel economy value of at least 22 mpg.


For example, the 1991 Dodge Grand Caravan is listed below as ineligible because the 1991 Dodge Grand Caravan with a 4 cylinder engine has an EPA combined mileage of 19 and is not eligible; however, the V6 3.3L and 3.8L engines in these vehicles have EPA combined mileage of 18 and thus are eligible. The changes made some of the following cars with certain engine configurations ineligible:

wiki
Had nothing to do with the vehicles failing or recalls, most vehicles over 5 years old have all ready Failed!

I'm not going to continue and I could but you need to finds the facts for yourself and get your heard out of the Obama web-site.
There are other news sources out there other than Obamas. Come On, you can say it,,,, come on,,, you voted for him, twice and your feeling a little ashamed,,,, That's OK, we understand,,,, Next Time Listen To Us,,, We tried to tell you all before in 07 and 08.

And Solyndra was Bush's failure not Obama's.


No, it wasn't.

President Obama exaggerated when defending his administration’s approval of a $535 million loan guarantee to Solyndra, a now-defunct solar company.
Obama referred to Solyndra’s loan at an Oct. 6 press conference as “a loan guarantee program that predates me.” That’s not accurate. It’s true that the Energy Policy Act of 2005 created a loan guarantee program for clean-energy companies developing “innovative technologies.” But Solyndra’s loan guarantee came under another program created by the president’s 2009 stimulus for companies developing “commercially available technologies.”
The president also overstated past Republican support for the program, saying “all of them in the past have been supportive of this loan guarantee program.” Republicans overwhelmingly opposed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and some of them even voted against the Energy Policy Act of 2005 at a time when Republicans controlled both houses of Congress.
Lastly, the president deemed the loan guarantee program “successful” overall. But it is too soon to say.

Here's a little better explanation for You.


The loan guarantee program that provided financing for Solyndra, however, does not predate Obama.
There are two loan guarantee programs for renewable energy companies. The first was created under section 1703 of Title XVII of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. It was designed to help support U.S. companies developing “a new or significantly improved technology that is NOT a commercial technology,” according to the Energy Department’s description of the program. It was a self-pay credit subsidy program, meaning the companies receiving the loan would have to pay the government a fee “equal to the present value of estimated payments the government would make in the event of a default.”

The Above is Bush and below will be your's, I mean Obamas.

The second program was created with the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, more commonly known as the stimulus law. The recovery act amended the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to create section 1705 for “commercially available technologies,” as the Energy Department explains on page 12 of a 2009 report on stimulus funding. The stimulus provided more funding for the loan guarantee programs. The loans under the new program also came with no credit subsidy fees, making them more attractive and less expensive than those under the program signed into law by President Bush. It was under this program that Solyndra was able to get financing, although the company initially applied under the section 1703 program.
In a March 2009 press release announcing a $535 million loan guarantee for Solyndra, the Energy Department said: “This loan guarantee will be supported through the President’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,
