Barack Obama – The Worst President Ever?
Macsmind.com ^ | September 18, 2011 | MACRANGER

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 Obama’s 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 hasn’t 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 — “You’re likeable enough, Hillary.” And they averted their eyes from his every gaffe — such as the admission that he didn’t 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 Obama’s opposite in the media’s 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.

“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.

The natural and logical end result of the liberals' thoughts and aspirations.

Were it not for the Propaganda Arm of the DNC, the Mainstream Media, this would never have been possible.

Obozo is easily the worst president since World War II. Nobody else even comes close. Not even the hopelessly naive and incompetent Jimbo Carter. Carter never hated America with the passion of Obozo. He was merely an incompetent idealistic boob in the mold of Woodrow Wilson, multiplied by four.

However, Obozo has yet to usher this nation into a Civil War. So James Buchanan (our first gay president) still holds that dubious honor.

The historic failures of President Obama will/are being softened by the main stream media and excused for two reasons. No. 1...He's the first "African American" President and "At every turn has been hampered by racist elements in the GOP and in the tea party" ..."He inherited such a mess, and world events plagued his visions so that things were left unfinished or made worse"...da..da...da...da...daaaa. No. 2 The cult of personality does not too soon reject their own messiahs or figure heads...(Gore is still a god to them) The world still loves Obama..he may yet someday be the president of the IMF, E.U. or some other international body. But time will clear things up. maybe not in our lifetimes, but he will eventually be looked upon as a vainglorious, inept, corrupt, flat out hard headed dim wit in his dealings with congress, the rule of law, the American people and his handling of international events. Jimmy Carter will look like a saint someday compared to him...and it won't surprise me if someday we find out he was NOT born in the U.S.A.

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?

Should have read “how did Obama pay for his education”?

The media’s love affair with a disastrous president

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!

One small point: a rotweiler is a noble animal compared to what the media did to Gov. Sarah Palin.

I haven't for at least two decades. In fact if Brian Williams announced the sun will rise in the east tomorrow morning, I'd be up at the crack of dawn with a compass just to make sure.

It is hard to judge him against other American presidents who had the welfare of this country in mind — it often appears that the mess we’re in is intentionally created. After all, did he not promise to bring change? Whatever change he had in mind was never revealed by him and the lame-ass MSM never wanted to know.

How can one compare Obama (a muslim and possibly not a natural born US citizen) with prior presidents who were?

It is like comparing bathtub gin and Laphroaig.

Give him time. He's only 2 1/2 years into his term.

Cute Rotty. Is he/she yours? Right now my 7 month old Greart Dane is exiled to the deck due to a serious intestinal upset that left Obama all over the master bed room at 6:00 a.m. Off to the vet first thing tomorrow morning.

Needs to be revised as follows:

How can one compare Obama (a muslim, a communist, and possibly not a natural born US citizen) with prior presidents who were none of those?

WHO IS BARACK HUSSEIN BARRY SORETOES OBAMA?

An intensive investigation has revealed the identity of the man whose Social Security number (SSN) is being used by President Obama: Jean Paul Ludwig, who was born in France in 1890, emigrated to the United States in 1924, and was assigned SSN 042-68-4425 (Obama's current SSN) in or about March 1977.

Ludwig lived most of his adult life in Connecticut. Because of that, his SSN begins with the digits 042, which are among only a select few reserved for Connecticut residents.

Obama never lived or worked in that state! Therefore, there is no reason on earth for his SSN to start with the digits 042. None whatsoever!

Now comes the best part! Ludwig spent the final months of his life in Hawaii, where he died.

Conveniently, Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, worked part-time in the Probate Office in the Honolulu Hawaii Courthouse, and therefore had access to the SSNs of deceased individuals.

The Social Security Administration was never informed of Ludwig's death, and because he never received Social Security benefits there were no benefits to stop and therefore, no questions were ever raised.

The suspicion, of course, is that Dunham, knowing her grandson was not a U.S. citizen, either because he was born in Kenya or became a citizen of Indonesia upon his adoption by Lolo Soetoro simply scoured the probate records until she found someone who died who was not receiving Social Security benefits, and selected Mr. Ludwigs Connecticut SSN for Obama.

Just wait until Trump gets past the birth certificate and onto the issue of Barry O's use of a stolen SSN. You will see leftist heads exploding, because they will have no way of defending Obama.

Although many Americans do not understand the meaning of the term "natural born" there are few who do not understand that if you are using someone else's SSN it is a clear indication of fraud.

Not only do I think will Obama lose, but the continuing poor economy will mark him as even worse than Carter.
