How much of a failure is Barack Hussein Obama?

History shows he’s in a league if his own.

After listening the hubris and ever-so-obvious narcissism of our man-child President, and his outrageous (and hilarious) claim that the first year of his Presidency deserves a grade of B+, I found yet another great article, from the London Daily Telegraph, that spells out exactly why he’s such a dismal, utter, and complete failure so far.

Why is it I can’t ever find this kind of reporting in our state-controlled media? Of course, this is a rhetorical question that we all know the answer to.

The following is not news to most of us. The mainstream media is no longer interested reporting and investigating the news when it comes to the failed economic policy of the Obama administration.

Of course, when only 7% of his administration have experience in the private sector (that’s not a typo, fyi), such as actually running businesses and creating jobs, this incompetency is easy to understand.

This, of course, means 93% of the morons serving in his administration have only known government or academia as a way to get a paycheck. Here’s a newsflash for them: These failed and tired economic theories and policies never have created a job or solved a problem, and never will.

So is it any wonder that their only answers for creating jobs- Spending money we cannot afford to spend, and raising taxes, have and will continue to fail dismally while putting us further into debt?

Also, the media refuses to show how the lives of real Americans are being affected by the bumbling liberal buffoons in Obama’s administration, and the bumbling duo of liberal buffoons, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, who run the liberal-controlled Congress.

The media are more interested in reporting and setting the agenda of what the Obama administration wants us to think, hear, see, and believe.

That’s not news or the reporting of news, folks. That’s propaganda, pure and simple, worthy of the old state-controlled newspaper Pravda, which laughingly meant “truth”, from the failed and long-gone Soviet Union.

Obama and his dim-witted minions, including the mainstream media, are all Marxists who detest capitalism, which has done more good to lift millions upon millions of people out of poverty, and detest the United States of America, and what has made and makes us the great nation we are, and, God willing, will continue to be.

Obama and his stooges have been such inept and pathetic failures that they have actually managed to make that imbecilic anti-Semite peanut farmer Jimmy Carter and the bungling clowns of incompetence in his administration look competent.

Who would have thought that would be possible, after seeing that train-wreck of an administration have their asses booted back to Georgia as the obvious failures of the highest magnitude that they were, by the American electorate and Ronald Reagan, after four years of mismanaging our economy and country?

Congrats, Obama. You’ve made the the useless look useful. The unprofessional look professional. the inadequate look adequate. The incompetent look competent. Hope you’re proud!

And to think that Obama and the stooges in his administration and in his media have the gall to call Fox News an outlet for GOP propaganda.

They obviously think all Americans are stupid and/or blind to what’s happening. We are not, which is why his approval rating continues its freefall toward oblivion, and a one-term Presidency, thankfully.

Then they also wonder why there’s such a disconnect between what the D.C. crowd and media sees while wearing their rose-colored glasses, undoubtedly supplied by The Zero™ and the equally clueless dimwits in his administration, and what real Americans see in their everyday lives.

Anyway, I’ll climb down off my soapbox, but before I do I hope everyone had a Happy Hannukah and Merry Christmas, and has a happy, prosperous, and safe New Year…Here’s the article. It’s well worth reading-

US voters give Barack Obama an F

By Nile Gardener

Barack Obama gave himself a B+ on Oprah Winfrey’s White House Christmas Special on ABC, but the American public is far less generous. The latest influential Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll of likely US voters gives Obama a thumping 56 percent disapproval rating – an F grade by any measure. 46 percent strongly disapprove of the president’s job performance, while just 25 percent strongly approve. That’s a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 percentage points, a staggering figure for a president just 11 months into his term of office.

These are historically low approval ratings for a US president, that concur with those released by several other pollsters, including NBC News/Wall Street Journal, who recently reported a 47 percent approval for Obama, and Quinnipiac and Marist, both at 46 percent.

The latest Gallup Survey gives Obama just 50 percent approval, lower than any president in the first December of his first term in the post-war period, with the exception of Ronald Reagan in 1981, at 49 percent, who inherited a country literally brought to its knees by the Carter presidency before later restoring it to greatness. Reagan eventually left office with a 68 percent approval.

At the same stage of their presidencies, George W. Bush polled at 81 percent approval, John F. Kennedy at 77 percent, George H.W. Bush at 71 percent, Dwight Eisenhower at 69 percent, Richard Nixon at 59 percent, Jimmy Carter at 57 percent, and Bill Clinton at 53 percent. Significantly, it wasn’t until his second term that President George W. Bush’s approval ratings began to sink to the levels currently experienced by Obama.

Barack Obama’s health care reform legislation is playing a major part in driving the high negativity ratings. 54 percent of voters surveyed by Rasmussen “believe they will be worse off” if the health care Titanic is approved by Congress, with just 25 percent believing they will be better off. 57 percent of voters now say that “it would be better to pass no health care reform bill this year instead of passing the plan currently being considered by Congress.” As the RealClearPolitics summary of polls demonstrates, the Obama health care plan is hugely unpopular.

The latest Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll reflects widespread disenchantment in the United States with the leftward direction Barack Obama is trying to take the country. As recent Gallup surveys have shown, America remains a predominantly conservative nation, with less than a quarter of Americans identifying themselves as liberal. In fact, the United States is shifting even more to the right under Obama, with a significant revival in the strength of the conservative movement. This poll should be a wake-up call for the White House, if it still mistakenly believes that a radical left-wing agenda can be sold to the American people.

Here’s the rest of the story.

    Unfortunately, there is no evidence that anyone in this administration even pretends to care what the American people want anymore.

    I wonder how long Roosevelt would have lasted in office if they’d had the internet back then?

    The only real difference between his presidency and Obama’s is that people today have access to unfiltered information. The MSM were just as much in the tank for Roosevelt as they are for Obama today. Most Americans didn’t even know he was unable to walk unassisted, because the media wouldn’t show pictures of his wheelchair.

    Why hasn’t 0bama been on tv about the Nigerian scumbag Islamic terrorist who tried to murder hundreds of Americans and other people on Christmas day? Is that not an issue that should concern the POTUS and affects the American public? Luckily, at least a few of the passengers on the flight did not have a pre 9/11 or progressive attitude, because things could have ended up pretty bad if they had a liberal attitude, such as many people today have. Just go to some liberal blogs and read the comments from the posters about this latest Islamic attack.

    0bama and Holder haven given full rights to KSM, a person who is behind the murder of thousands of people, the Nigerian terrorist didn’t even kill a single person. Maybe the Nigerian Islamic terrorist should be given a green card and full citizenship, and he can get to be tried in civilian court, just like KSM will get. If he’s found guilty, 0bama and Holder can always pardon him, since he’s extremely black and the person who assaulted him was white and clearly acted stupidly.

    Also, some media is reporting about his “explosive” underwear.

    I remember writing a post on 1.0 many years ago about certain Paleostinian terrorist suicide bombers who actually wore a metal plate to protect their 3 inch long camel dung infested penises so that they can get in on with all of those 72 “virgins” in the afterlife.

    Why is it I can’t ever find this kind of reporting in our state-controlled media?

    For years, you couldn’t find honest reporting about Bill Clinton anywhere in the American media either. Back then, it was quite common to see British papers running stories the American papers wouldn’t touch. History repeats itself; and if Barack Obama were in school today, he’d be repeating history, too.

    They obviously think all Americans are stupid and/or blind to what’s happening.

    They have some basis for that belief, seeing as how the moron got elected in the first place. However, even Obama can’t fool all of the people all of the time.


  25. 25 | December 26, 2009 3:37 pm

    We are going to have to never let up! We have to win and win big in three straight election cycles 2010, 2012 and 2014.

    I’m pretty sure it is, unfortunately.

    There are 36 Senate seats up next year (34 regularly scheduled ones, plus 2 that were filled by apointment following vacancies).

    Of that 36, 18 are currently held by Dems, and 18 by Republicans.

    In order to retake control of the Senate, we’ll need to hold all 18 of those Republican seats, and win 11 of the 18 Dem seats that are up. In other words, we’d need to win 29 out of 36 races just to get a 1 seat margin.

    I don’t see it happening. We’ll probably pick up four or five net seats next year, which will put us within reach of taking over in 2012.

    Actually, the White House said nothing. A statement was released by the Dept. of Homeland Security. And…

    From an article in today’s Honolulu Star Bulletin:

    President Barack Obama began today by getting an update on yesterday’s thwarted terrorist attack over Detroit, aides said.

    No official statement from the president is expected, aides said…

    …Shortly after taking the security call from [sic], Obama and first lady Michelle Obama traveled to Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay for their morning workout.

    Obama the party crasher

    Barack Obama is not used to being the guy not invited to a party. At the Copenhagen global warming conference, however, he found that not everyone wanted to hang with him. Our president can’t take a hint.

    “We were told they were at the airport,” a senior administration official said. “We were told delegations were split up. We were told they weren’t going to meet.” So imagine Mr. Obama’s surprise when he arrived for the bilateral powwow and found all four leaders in the room already in deep discussion. “Are you ready for me?” he said with an “uncharacteristic edge” to his voice, according to a CBS News report

    …Mr. Obama did make history at Copenhagen, but not in the way he expected. It says a great deal about American power and prestige when international leaders go to so much trouble to avoid meeting with the president of the United States

    I don’t know how long you’ve been in CT, but the same data source that shows CT had the 3rd highest state/local tax burden per capita in the country in 2008, shows that in 1989 it ranked 28th. It jumped from 18th to 5th in 1992, and it’s never looked back. What happened in 1992?

    I don’t see any way they could accomplish a major change to the standing rules like that. They wouldn’t even get all the Dems to go for it, much less any Repbulicans. Byrd would never go for it, for one.
