Would Super Villains Do a Better Job Running the Country Than Obama?
The Freehold ^ | September 26, 2012 | Jonathan David Baird

Posted on 09/26/2012 6:09:50 PM PDT by EveningStar

By any honest measurement Barack Hussein Obama has been a dismal failure as a President. Few if any Presidents have been given as much power in their first term as Obama and done so little. In fact for two years he had an unassailable super majority in congress and still his administration has been unable to do something as simple as craft a budget much less control runaway unemployment, a crippling deficit, and the terrorist overthrow of the middle east. While contemplating how anyone could do much worse than Obama, it came to me: Obama is such a failure that he makes traditional super villains and science fiction dictators look good in comparison. I thought I would compare the achievements of some of the worst bad guys in sci-fi history to Obama. I will rank each villain as low, moderate, or high in four different categories and see how Obama stacks up.

Obama’s not a supervillain?

How about the comic book version of Cobra Commander or Destro?

No, he isn’t.

He is very competent at his task which is destroying us.

He is a super villian, and he’s just getting started.

What qualifies your grandson to be a super-villain? :-)

No, he isn’t [a puppet]. He is very competent at his task which is destroying us.

Still, he is largely a puppet of his 60s-radical advisers and handlers. He's learned a lot from them, however.

OF COURSE!

Because unlike what Ubama has done to our money, The Bison Dollars will be worth 5 British Pounds!

A super villain would rape, rob, and pillage until his heart was content, or until he ran up to the limits of his conscience.

Obama is in perfect alignment with his conscience.

Careful. Obama would eat your dog to prevent that from happening.

"The Daily Caller noted that in President Obama’s best-selling memoir, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, the president recalls being fed dog meat as a young boy in Indonesia with his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro.

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote. “Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths.

He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”"

"The Barack Obama "Joker" poster is a digitally manipulated image of United States President Barack Obama, designed by Firas Alkhateeb in January 2009, that has been adopted by some critics of the Obama administration and described as the "most infamous anti-Obama image".[1][2][3] The image portrays Obama as comic book supervillain, the Joker, based on the portrayal by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.[4]"

I’d prefer Destro. Cobra Commander had a really annoying voice. Plus, Destro’s head was shiny.

There was a comic back in the day that had Doctor Doom take over the US, and as a semi-benevolent dictator, actually cleans up a lot problems (reduces crime, still allows free speech, breaks the Fed, cleans up the environment, flattens the government bureaucracy, and removes all regulations from the "Internet"). Yep, I'd vote for Doom. Except he doesn't tolerate elections.

If you are a liberal Doom is an idea candidate. He stands for most of the same values.

Sinestro -

Political Experience: Medium - Ruled his home planet for a number of years. Conquered the planet and used fear to control the population.

Unemployment/Economy: High - His planet seemed to enjoy a fairly robust economic life while he was in charge.

Morality: Medium - Though his intent of safety and order for his people was pure, his means of attaining it were wrong.

Foreign Policy: Medium - He is literally willing to give his life for those he protects. He has fought off alien invasions and made allies when necessary to attempt to protect his planet.
