The awful truth about Obama beginning to dawn on his allies
American Thinker ^ | June 5, 2014 | By Thomas Lifson

Posted on 06/05/2014 8:51:25 PM PDT by kingattax

It’s finally happening! Libs are starting to realize that the manufactured image of Barack Obama as a brilliant, capable executive is hooey, and that they have bought into an incompetent who threatens to sink them.

Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post doesn’t quite put it in those terms, of course, but you don’t have to read between the lines too closely to come up with that interpretation of his piece entitled, “Americans are starting to doubt President Obama is a good boss.”

Obama lies?

So do his followers.

Stalinists lie. Always

It’s just that all the bullsh** is starting to smell a bit much that it cannot be ignored anymore.

And yet another article recently posted here said that the Tea Party has jumped the shark. Go figure.

To me, Obamaism and liberalism and Alinksyite political calculations have all jumped the shark.

Real question: why did it take so long? Answer; because they are just like him but they suddenly realized the outcome is not what they wanted. Not to worry—these hapless “useful idiots” are always the first to be sacrificed. They never learn.

No. It’s not happening. Period.

They will vote Lib forever. The ONLY thing that pisses them off the most is that he isn’t more liberal.

Romney was bad. Obama was worse. The fact that Obama was worse doesn’t make Romney any better.
We deserve better. If your GOP-e wants to survive, it had better carve those three words into their headboards.

Maybe if Romney had decided to actually run a campaign against Obama instead of conservatives, things might have been different. Liberal is as liberal does and that son of an Alinsky republican only hates conservatives.

Yup ! And you can kinda see how it will all play out. Similar to the way Odinga handled things back in Africa. Massive racial riots will be encouraged and the big cities will literally burn. Bye Bye Useful Idiots. While that is going on of course Emperor Zero will be unleashing his Government Soup Agency Army on us simple folks out in the country. After we are all labelled domestic terrorist by Holders new task force. So even if we wanted to rescue the Useful Idiots from the burning cities, we will have our hands tied. My predictions anyways.

“well, the ‘purists’ who would not hold their noses and vote for Romney are to blame for that!”

_____________________________________________________

The same people that bitched about Romney being the Republican nominee, sat here and castigated each and every candidate we had.

How many times did we hear: “Obama and Romney are one and the same!”

Romney doesn’t hate his country, doesn’t hate the military, doesn’t hate coal, doesn’t hate the free market, doesn’t hate tax cuts, doesn’t hate traditional families, doesn’t hate small businesses, etc. Obama on the other hand: YES TO ALL!

Four million people stayed home last election and allowed a Marxist with a four year record to win another term to complete his destruction of our nation!

To the four million who stayed home last election, I say to you: F*ck you!

Agree. People here who had the option to vote for someone other than Obama even if it was a RINO but chose to stay home have no right to complain about the consequences. They were useful idiots for the Democrats by failing to vote. By not voting at all they voted FOR Obama and every crappy thing he continues to do to the country.

Such an editorial is red meat for conservatives who will be expected to make typical comments about it, but here is an atypical observation:

The only way that 0bama can *learn* and improve is to receive constructive criticism from the Left.

He won’t listen to the Right, so there is no way that us telling him that adding red tape and increasing healthcare costs will hurt small businesses (e.g. Productivity down 3.2% in Q1 2014).

It doesn’t matter to him that we are correct. We don’t count in his limited worldview.

Only criticism from the Left counts...and prior to the Bergdahl fiasco, the Left had told 0bama that everything that he did was “wonderful”.

So he had zero motivation to improve himself.

No. The idiots who ran Romney as the Republican candidate are to blame for that.

And the other idiots are the ones who encourage the republican party’s elite by voting for whatever unelectable assclown they decide to foist on us regardless of his ideology or qualifications.

Romney sucked. Not voting for him had nothing to do with being a “purist” and everything to do with not voting for a liberal in republican clothing.

McCain sucked but at least he had a running mate we could vote for.

Whatever anyone thinks about Obama doesn’t bother him at all.

He can continue destroying this country with impunity because the MSM will have his back and Bambi knows it. Besides, no one in Congress will initiate impeachment procedures against him.

No one should be surprised with the way things are developing — Bambi promised to change the country to his image and he will keep his word this time.

Obama just lied to DiFi. He is not listening to the Useful Idiots anymore. They are, after all, just idiots. It is all about him now and his controlling cartel. That is why we have literally thousands of young Central American children living as refugees on military bases here in Texas. Obama and his Cartel encouraged them to invade this country. And now he could care less about them except to use them as political tools for leverage. It is all about him.

‘Obama = a sissy Stalin’
I would not be so sure of that. I think he is weakening the resistance that people with a few bucks could put up, thus the lousy nonexistent recovery.
It has taken a while to scare enough people into believing that we are financially doomed without government rescue.
You can see he is shutting down our ability to produce food, just look at the Central Valley of Cali. Lack of food is a potent weapon.
He has been bribing whole states and counties and cities with our own tax money. He that pays the fiddler calls the tune.
Staging points around the US have been set up for use during a crackdown on his enemies.
Fema camps with razor wire angled to the inside, what does that tell you.
He has fermented division among the people, now different races do not trust each other, people with different ethic backgrounds do not trust each other, people with different cultures no longer trust each other. A divided house cannot stand.
It takes time to destroy a great nation and he is doing it as quickly as he can. When everything is in place, you will see the real Zero.
Since he hates himself, it makes him hate everyone else. He is IMO a monster. We just haven’t seen the true 0, but we will and very shortly.

I agree with your sentiments. Also, the brutal debates, run by Democrats who enjoyed the show as the various Republicans from different factions ripped each other to shreds didn’t help either. You can hardly blame Romney for being spent; to this day I don’t even know if he actually wanted to win on November 1, 2012.

Look, in order to change things...you have to win first.

“McCain sucked but at least he had a running mate we could vote for.”

She was very clearly not ready in 2008. She is still very shrill, condescending, and turns off quite a few people regardless of the validity of her ideas and positions. She isn’t going to win this way. Contrast this with RR.

Did you see the first debate? Romney ran circles around Obama in many ways.

Romney didn’t lose the election was stolen

He was still a liberal but far, far better than Obama

Do you live in Florida? I do. I got to see Mr. Not Running Against Liberals in action. He pulled out every dirty trick in the book running against Newt Gingrich, but when it came time for him to run against Obama, all he could do is make nice with his friend, BO.

Why do you think he pulled back after that first debate? Libs don’t like to make each other look bad. They save all that hard campaigning for use on conservatives only.

I’m convinced the same thing is going to happen in 2016 that happened in 2012. It doesn’t matter if we have 50 candidates, we’ll find something wrong with each and every one of them. Hell, we’ll even invent things to exclude them from running.

We demand something from other human beings that just isn’t possible; PERFECTION! There are some who will settle for nothing less. Thus, we’ll have another 4-5 million sitting home again.

To those who sat home in 2012, you have nothing to bitch about. You saw the damage Obama did in four short years, but in your abject selfishness, you decided it was more important to have your pathetic little pity party, and not vote. You DO hold some responsibility for where we’re at today. You could’ve helped to defeat Obama, and you DIDN’T! Now it’s too late!

Selfish Bastards!

And we still have to survive 2 1/2 more yrs of this Kenyan imbecile.

Obama’s always had everything handed to him and that's one of his biggest problems. He doesn't even realize he's not a decent human being. He believes his own illusion that his handlers have steadfastly crafted for him. So when it comes down to him trying to lead he is actually the most clueless person in the room and we're talking about a room full of delusional liberal dreamers.

Where this ever ends I don't know but the Obama era has to end ASAP. Are there any responsible adults left in Washington?

Obama is going rogue and he no longer cares what people think or who he hurts, including the Rats. It’s going to be interesting to watch when the Rats finally catch on. Obama is putting the Rats between a Barack and a hard place. He’s either going to squeeze the hell out of them or they are going to abandon him.

The awful truth is not about Obama.

The awful truth is that we have been so dumbed down as a nation that we elected this fraud. We here on FR saw from the beginning that he had NOTHING to recommend him other than his color; and the reason the MSM was so ga-ga over him was no other reason than his color - they used it as a smokescreen to hide his radical politics.

He had no experience; had only gotten on a ballot because corrupt Chicago judges had thrown off more experienced opponents; had never even held a real job. I remember the Fox panel laughing incredulously when asking Juan Williams to come up with ANY experience that qualified him to be president and Juan very seriously said, “He’s running a presidential campaign - that qualifies him!”

Everyone here saw he was an empty suit and no one listened to us; now the MSM is desperately trying to paper over their disaster. Obama is simply an average person that, like Biden said, got elected because “You got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” But the office of president grinds the clueless up and spits them out for breakfast. It’s a nasty job.

I think it’s more than that. I think the Republican party powerful would rather have a Democrat in than a tea party or real reformer; a REAL reformer might actually stop the money train. And heaven knows they don’t want that.

If you notice each real reformer was taken out way before the finals, leaving only the palatable to the powerful. McCain, Romney, Bush, etc.

When it comes down to it, the GOP heads all want the status quo. They are all sell outs to our founding fathers ideals of personal freedom and a less invasive, less tyrannical govt. They LIKE the gravy train. Anyone that makes a noise about even slowing it down is attacked far worse than the most leftist Dem.

But it’s time for a longer view. Electing anyone from the Republicrats or the Dempublicans will lead to the same outcome.

Conservatives are small minority in this country now. It doesn’t matter what we do until the SHTF.
