Former GWB senior advisor Karl Rove: The Zero™ is no B+ President

by Bob in Breckenridge ( 114 Comments › )
Filed under Barack Obama, Democratic Party, Progressives at December 18th, 2009 - 4:00 pm

The conceit of this moronic Marxist, The Zero™, is breathtaking. Obama and the libtards have been nothing short of a dangerous, utter failure from day one.

From bankrupting our country by putting us trillions of dollars into debt that us, our kids and grandkids will have to somehow repay, to spending $24,000 to purchase each $4000 “cash for clunkers” vehicle, to spending about $250,000 for each “new” job created or saved (whatever the hell a “saved” job is or means). B+??? GMAFB!!! An “F” (for failure) to too high a grade for this idiot Obama.

From Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal-

The President Is No B+ President;
In fact, he’s got the worst ratings of any president at the end of his first year.

Barack Obama has won a place in history with the worst ratings of any president at the end of his first year: 49% approve and 46% disapprove of his job performance in the latest USA Today/Gallup Poll.

There are many factors that explain it, including weakness abroad, an unprecedented spending binge at home, and making a perfectly awful health-care plan his signature domestic initiative. But something else is happening.

Mr. Obama has not governed as the centrist, deficit-fighting, bipartisan consensus builder he promised to be. And his promise to embody a new kind of politics—free of finger-pointing, pettiness and spin—was a mirage. He has cheapened his office with needless attacks on his predecessor.

Consider Mr. Obama’s comment in his interview this past Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes” that the Bush administration made a mistake in speaking in “a triumphant sense about war.”

This was a slap at every president who rallied the nation in dark moments, including Franklin D. Roosevelt (“With confidence in our armed forcMr. Obama continued distorting the record in his “60 Minutes” interview Sunday when he blamed bankers for the financial crisis. They “caused the problem,” he insisted before complaining, “I haven’t seen a lot of shame on their part” and pledging to put “a regulatory system in place that prevents them from putting us in this kind of pickle again.”

[...]

Mr. Obama may actually believe it when he says, “I think that’s a pretty darned good outcome” and congratulates himself that he could succeed where “seven presidents have tried . . . [and] seven presidents have failed.”

But voters seem to have a different definition of success. And they are tiring of the president’s blame shifting and distortions.

    If Zero was any kind of a man, when asked how he was doing as POTUS, he would have said, ‘I will let the people of this country rate me. ”
    But the shameless, disgusting narcissist just had to toot his own horn. He’s like a little kid, ‘Hey look at me. . . . look at ME . . . See ME.’
    Also the jerk knows the citizens of this country are wising up to his ways. He is failing as POTUS to more and more people every day. B+ my ass.

    Great column by Rove, Bob.

    One of the problems with Obama is that he is just plain stupid when it comes to economics. Unbelievably ignorant. Childish.

    Like a kid who’s never had to pull his own economic weight, never had a real job, never balanced a budget, never……Yeah. That’s him.

    I couldn’t agree more that he is unbelievably ignorant but I have also become convinced that he is doing a lot this purposely. He is aware that he is making the economy worse and he just keeps plowing forward. I think it goes back to his basic hatred of America. In his mind, he thinks we deserve all the punishment he can visit upon us. Just recall how he and his sasquatch wife, maligned America from the moment they hit the national stage. They are our enemies. Enemies of everything this country stands for. And they are in the WhiteHouse.
    I flunk them both.

    @ teacake:

    We have no choice. He would never step down, and Congress will never impeach him even if he sacrificed an infant to Satan in the Capitol Rotunda. People are going to learn that elections have consequences. Giving the country over to someone because they are “historic” (dogwhistle for “black”) “clean” and “articulate” has consequences. Obama has no experience of any significance. He’s not worked an honest job, ever. OK, he did the adjunct professor gig a couple of years for resume padding, but he doesn’t know the subject he aledgedly taught. He didn’t honestly win election to office, even, but used dirty tricks and slimey politics of the lowest sort to destroy his opposition before election. Not as bad as Al Franken, perhaps, but conspicuous for it’s depravaty even for Chicago.

    And once in office he did what? Pass ingenious legislation righting the ills of the world? Hardly. When the man voted, he usually voted “presant”. I have yet to hear of even one significant piece of legislation he even signed on as a cosponsor of. And we expect him to run the Country?

    We almost deserve how bad he is going to be. Almost.

    Just contrast Zero with the brilliant passionate Col. Allen West who poured his patriotic heart out and expressed his beliefs succinctly without a prompter.
    Zero is a bumbling fool but he also has a lot of very dark thoughts in his heart that he has to conceal.
    That’s why he uses the prompter.

    Yeah. You can make an argument that he actually wants a big depression so we can be “saved” by total socialism.

    But the sheer ignorance and ideological blindness are still striking. Bill Clinton could turn around his thinking on economic policy because he wasn’t entirely ignorant about money. True, he never had a real job either, but he grew up poor and knew the value of a buck and how to steal one.

    More important, Clinton, IMHO, never really believed the socialist spiel. No more than a used-car salesman believes that lemon was only driven to church on Sundays by a sweet old widow. Obama, OTOH, is a true believer in neo-Marxism. He really believes the other side is evil, so he can’t seek advice from anyone outside the ideology.

    That is exactly right. The Left want to make things sop bad that the people violently revolt.

It is a brutal philosophy dedicated to totalitarian power for the sake of power. But you know this.

    So the bunch of rich dummies that run countries across this world got together, during a blizzard, to discuss global warming.

    They don’t believe in global warming and don’t really care, but it was a chance to slush around with other rich dummies that run countries and enjoy expensive food and drink on someone else’s dime.

    They arrived at an agreement that isn’t legally binding and so, in the end, absolutely nothing was done, except wasted time, money and fuel.

    We use to play this at 1.0 when we had a President with balls’ and knew what was right. G.B. may have been wrong sometimes but boy do I miss him.

    I miss Johnny Cash and Pres. Bush.

    i went and saw Avatar tonight. An A + movie. I’ll see it again. In the post viewing survey they asked me what website I read. I gave Blogmocracy the number one spot, then foxnews, and ew.com

    Obama’s solutions seem to be Chicago. Get the Olympics to illinois, get the gitmos to Illinois. I wonder how many favors he is calling in and how much his friends are being rewarded. Obama treats the presidency as a garage sale.

    So you really like it. I’d heard that it was both anti-US and anti-military. And then the Puppyblender described the aliens as Terminator smurfs. Not very appealing. Could you give a more thorough review? I had decided not to see it but I could be convinced otherwise.

    You can no more remove the corruption from his administration than you can from Maliki’s, or Karzai’s.

    One would think the idiots who scheduled the Climate Change Summit would have chosen to hold it in July or August when the heat would give global warming some sort of legitimacy for the ignorant who think the seasons have no bearing on why the Earth goes through climatic cycles. No, instead they calendar it in the Winter.

    See, that’s why they changed it from “global warming” to “climate change” in the first place.

    That way, they can claim that anything that’s slightly out of the ordinary is a result. Unusually cold winter? Check. Unusually warm winter? Check.

    Big storm? Check. No storms? Check.

    It’s brilliant, actually.

    As I said on another thread, they HAVE to hold these in the winter to rally the troops.

    It is easy to forget reality and believe in AGW when it is 90 degrees outside, but support (and therefore money) is scarce in the winter without the summits.

    i couldn’t agree more. We do not need a 3rd party that will get Zero re-elected. Been there, done that.
    But watch for the msm to try to infiltrate the thinking of what is best for conservatives/republicans and split us up so they can keep the Idiot-in-Chief in business. We just need to shift the rinos toward conservatism. It will be sure win for us.

    We gave the rnc the white house and congress, yet we kept moving to the left. We’re heading towards a cliff and the two parties differ on what speed we should drive.

    Yeah, we lose a few elections if we start to develop a solid new party….. bring the various thrid parties into one…. but to abandon the idea because it wouldn’t be convenient on a short term level?

    @ 81 Iron Fist:

    The corporate run military mercenaries are the bad guys. The good guy defects from them. There were parts that were political crap. Where GWB bush words were used by the bad guys to make their points. That part was pretty shallow. And I noticed it right off in the movie. It’s like that Kurt Russell movie soldier http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120157/ that is typical sci fi to me. It’s not Orson Scott Card stuff.

    I’d say there were about 5 cheap political shots in the movie. That served no real purpose except to get democratic watchers go Yahoo… It does reveal the vapidity of expensive hollywood writers.

    But I saw the movie as more about the nature of the human spirit. And the individual will to survive. something the marxist don’t like.

    The natives are kinda of cool and kinda of dopey. They are like native americans, mixed with some african stuff and laid out like Mel Gibson tribals co horts from Scotland and Central America. Charles would call them racist. One of the less colorful ones did look like Obama to me.

    Just view the military here as an Obama created expedition that he denies all knowledge of.

    I’ll see it once more where the CGI won’t wow me so much. The weakness in it are probably the writing.

    I don’t want to give a lot of it away if people go see it. It does have some surprises in it. Go matinee or wait until DVD maybe.

    @ 81 Iron Fist: The aliens are humanoids with blue skin. Taller and tougher then us Earthpeople. It’s a sci fi story about machine vs nature. Very common theme. Just the computer graphics are very good. And there is some plot in it. Sigourney Weaver is in it, I was half expecting an ALIEN to pop out somewhere.

    Rinos are losers. Weak Republicans are on thin ice. . Look how McCain lost. . . . like an old fool. This reach across the aisle b.s. is not working. Rinos will not be elected. They will be primaried and put out to pasture. Conservatism is on the ascendency. Any light weight Republicans can just go join the Dems.

    The Tea Parties are not a political Party. They are a movement to take back the Republican Party and bring it to the winning conservative focus that will let us sweep elections.

    That is exactly what I have noticed at the Tea Parties. A varied group of citizens. All fed up with the commie trajectory of this country under the mismanagement of Zero. It was very encouraging and heart warming to see old and young, black and white and everything in between showing up to take back this country.
