Well that’s up for history and debate. But one thing is for sure. He’s a bust and the media needs to own up to their responsibility for the disaster known as Obama.
“As the bad economic news continues to emanate from the United States with a double-dip recession now all but certain a reckoning is overdue. American journalism will have to look back at the period starting with Barrack Obamas rise, his assumption of the presidency and his conduct in it to the present, and ask itself how it came to cast aside so many of its vital functions. In the main, the establishment American media abandoned its critical faculties during the Obama campaign and it hasnt reclaimed them since.
Much of the Obama coverage was orchestrated sychophancy. They glided past his pretensions when did a presidential candidate before address the world from the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin? They ignored his arrogance Youre likeable enough, Hillary. And they averted their eyes from his every gaffe such as the admission that he didnt speak Austrian.
The media walked right past the decades-long association of Obama with the weird and racist pastor Jermiah Wright. In the midst of the brief stormlet over the issue, one CNN host inexplicably decided that CNN was going to be a Wright-free zone. He could have hung out a sign: No bad news about Obama here.
The media trashed Hillary. They burned Republicans. They ransacked Sarah Palin and her family. But Obama, the cool, the detached, the oracular Obama he strolled to the presidency.
Palin, in particular, stands out as Obamas opposite in the medias eyes. As much as they genuflected to the one, they felt the need to turn rotweiler toward the other. If Obama was sacred , classy, intellectual and cosmopolitan, why then Palin must be malevolent, trashy, dumb and pure backwoods-ignorant.”
We know the story. Those of us who were blogging in during the 2008 election know this . You’ll remember that I warned about his plan to disarm America. He did to a point with the Russians, although to be fair he did keep up the pressure in the war on terror including the no-brainer to pop Bin Laden.
But our media slobbering over Obama’s every move from the time he rose from the primordial ooze of Chicago and throughout his Presidency is a sight to see. Even now when his approval ratings are effectually in the 30s and disapproval numbers higher than any president of recent history they continue to excuse and coddle him.
For intents and purposes Obama is a one term fluke. An accidental president who caused havoc on the economy, bankrupting America for years to come, and the media is his willing co-hort.
Obama has made some of the most wrongheaded and boneheaded decsions of any potus in my lifetime -— Truman to Oabama.
If Obama loses next November he’s guaranteed to go down as one of the worst, if not THE worst potus in modern history post-WWII. He’s pretty close right now.
Just another FDR-Truman-LBJ liberal clone.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
“a one-term fluke”.
The flukiest of flukes, I’d say. A psychohistory of how this man rose (or more appropriately), descended from the heavens, WITH NO HISTORY AND NO NEED FOR ONE, and “fell into” the Presidency,needs to be written for the ages.
Nothing quite like this has ever happened in American Politics, and all of us have analyzed it, and made sidelong remarks about it for over 3 years now, encompassing both his candidacy and his Presidency, and we watched with profound queasiness as that dark day happened and he was inaugurated. Obama increasingly looks like the Last Gasp of the Left, and his ideology coupled with his personal immaturity, narcissism and arrogance have only emboldened all those players on the Left who now make such noise into postures of overreaching and rhetorical violence that exactly match and foolishly EXCEED Obama’s own. They will all go down together; they’ve seen to that. They know they are dying out.
That’s like saying “Stalin-worst dictator ever”. His goal is not to be a good President, but to further the left’s goal of destroying America from within. He has been very successful, in terms of what he wants to accomplish.
Since he is not President under the Constitutional requirements, he cannot be considered the worst President. Carter still has that title.
Mr. obama is the worst fraud to ever sit in the Whitehouse.
Obama makes Carter look like James Madison
(Mostly for the rest of us)
Were it not for the Propaganda Arm of the DNC, the Mainstream Media, this would never have been possible.
However, Obozo has yet to usher this nation into a Civil War. So James Buchanan (our first gay president) still holds that dubious honor.
How stupid does a person have to be to trust the MSM now?
There is still so much I would like to know about Hussein.
How did he get into Harvard Law? How we paid for his education? What were his grades? Why the multiple SS #s? Why bc forgery? Why the trip to Pakistan with sugardaddy boyfriend?
Will there be a definitive biography written?
Buchanan and FDR are battling for gold and silver; Obama has a firm lock on bronze, however...
Should have read “how did Obama pay for his education”?
Not only the liberal media but everyone associated with Obama will have a black eye for a long time. I am referring to the media, the ivy league schools, the democratic party, the socialist professors, liberals, feminists, et al.
No, your first statement was probably correct - I bet, somehow, there were tax dollars directed/moved/given to get him through school!
