Skip to comments.Question of the day; Did ANYONE think in Jan 2009 that HE(it) would be THIS BAD?

Yes. I didn’t just think so.
I had no doubt that he would be this bad. You haven’t seen anything yet; unfortunately, I’m very serious.
I thought Obama would be inept, divisive, and borderline treasonous. So, no, I had no idea just how terrible he would be.
Well I had the feeling he would when his association with terrorists like Ayers became known and it became painfully obvious that what we had here was a blatant enemy of the US as POTUS which for some reason still hasn’t gotten through the thick skulls of the RINO party.
Yes, as soon as the election results were known or maybe even when Obemba announced that he was going go run.
Well, maybe next election, everybody will vote instead of staying home because THEIR guy wasn’t running.
Yes. I did. I dubbed him “The Lyin’ King” and was kicked off a GOP website for disparaging the President.
Hence my screen name.
FR gave me a home.
Yep. In Summer of 2008 I went to the democrat and republican booths of fairs and city “[fill in the blank] days” events and said something like, “Do you know what other politicians promised hope and change generically? Lennin and Hitler.
I believed it so strongly that as a 45 year resident of Seattle I bought a 12 acre farm in central KY two weeks before the election. I moved there in 2011 and expanded it to 32 acres.
I do not believe the US, remotely resembling itself in history, will survive the Obama presidency.
I did enough research and prayed enough about it before he was elected to know he would be this bad. Actually, it’s only going to get worse from here. You haven’t see who he REALLY is yet, but soon you will, and it ain’t gonna be pretty.
Roger that. We aint seen the worst.
The swiftness of the destruction that he has wrought is breathtaking. I sm truly embarrassed the Dems were able to get him another 4 years. Now he can complete his mission.
Only liberals didn’t see this coming.
I thought he WAS this bad, but didn’t think he could get away with it.
I read Dreams From My Father when Hillary was still the presumptive Dem nominee. It was obvious this guy didn’t understand what America was about and would be a Statist through and through.
First, yes, I (we) knew who Obama was and what his worldview and vision were. I don’t think we realized we’d see actions actually happen like we’ve seen recently...purely evil acts like sending Taliban leaders back into the field and busing truckloads of children into our country to dump them here to manipulate for political gain.
I also thought we had dodged the worst of it by mid 2010...Obamacare was passed and Dodd/Frank, but we also saw public opinion swing strongly in our direction on a variety of issues...the AZ immigration bill, etc. We were winning the arguments and chipped away at their governing super majority and then took the House. I thought the country was shifting back to sanity and that he’d be flushed from office. I thought we mitigated the damage...only to see things flip drastically a different way since 2011.
Knowing his campus radical community organizing history, absolutely.
Because people won't vote for the liberal republican anymore.
I’m not surprised. And while what we know about is bad enough, I fear what we don’t yet know.
and those ridiculed as “Birthers” were way ahead of the curve.
Yes and it is one of the main reasons I harp on the GOP/Rino/Lesser evil thing.
When you put a man with no principle, a situational ethicist, into power, they adapt every situation to meet their desire. They do not feel constrained by anything. Not the people who elected then, not tradition, not rules or laws.
Obama is a classic narcissist. Words mean things. Actions mean things. Taken together, it shows just how destructive making excuses/rationalizing can be. Never expect someone to be something their actions scream they aren’t.
Whether the person is a Dem or a Pub.
So sick of reading that. That’s not what happened. Blame the people who. Oted for BO orthe people who keep nominated liberal GOP.
His islamist mission. There are jihadi camps all over America.
There was a lot of fraud. The exact amount/impact has never been quantified.
He HAS to destroy the Constitutional handover of power, or face the gallows when the truth of his corruption is exposed.
He’s nowhere near as bad as I thought he’d be ( the country is still here and the mass arrests haven’t started yet). But give him time... he may yet meet my expectations)
“I thought he WAS this bad, but didnt think he could get away with it.”
Why did you think that? It was the criminals in the Electoral College who elected him ultimately. They could have challenged his citizenship, COLB, and the other problems, but they did not. They all know he’s a fake and they let him skate right into office.
Obama’s hate for this country runs deeper than Nidal Malik Hasan’s or Mohamed Atta’s and has nothing to do with his being Black and White. “Race” is just a pretext to rile up the crowds as it was when Alger Hiss was doing his thing.
Yes I believed he would be this bad. I knew he is pure evil. What amazes me still is the sheer stubbornness and stupidity of his supporters. How can these people remain so blind?

We first heard of an undocumented man named Obama,
Who denied all the confusion with a Kenyan and Osama;
At every turn, the man worked to have America defeated,
He weaponized the Enemy, to have Americans deleted,
Laughed he, Congress helped me give'm MANPADs to kill ya.
Obama doesn’t care what anyone thinks or who he hurts, including Democrats. We’ll see how far the Rats allow him to hurt them.
Obama is in for a bad ending.
He had hubris. I truly believe he has mental stability issues now. But if he stepped down Joe Biden would be president. We’re screwed either way.
There were only Leftists (Dem and Pub-E) on the ballot. Which one do you think should I have voted for? The Leftist or the Leftist?
I knew that it would be bad, but didn’t know from hat angle. Take it to the bank, we haven’t seen anything yet!
I am a little surprised that there hasn't been more push back.
It is about to get a LOT worse...if GOPe stays in leadership, IMO.
I’d gladly take two years of Biden. It’s that bad.
I’ll say it.
Why do people fear that more than Obama? Why? I want someone to show me how a moron is more dangerous than a man with a plan.
Not to attack you personally, so please don’t take it that way. But I want someone to explain in detail how Biden is worse than Zero.
Definition is everything and opinions are infinite. As for me, I thought that this very liberal, race-oriented, community organizer with no executive experience, Chicago trained, legalistic academic from the Ivy League was only there because the MSM was in love, the country was suffering from war fatigue, the housing bubble had burst with exceeding fallout and the GOP thought John McCain was a candidate.
So in 2009 I thought he would be a very bad single term president. "This bad" required 2012 to make it so!
And yes, I have moderated my wording for a civilized audience!
Omeba’s just getting warmed up. The MSM and Progs will back him all the way. Even after tens of thousands are nuked by Iran on our own shores, and Tel Aviv goes up in a mushroom cloud. It’s coming.
Yes, but it’s more important for us to know that it (HE) is going to get much worse.
Yes I thought he was this bad,and actually Im surprised he hasnt done worse.
I think Dinesh D’Souza is most correct in terms of quantifying the roots of Obama’s Rage against the United States...
