Skip to comments.Is this Obama’s ‘malaise’ moment?

Malaise is back.
President Barack Obamas situation is getting perilously close to President Jimmy Carters in 1979.
Americans see little evidence of an economic recovery, more and more workers are giving up hope of ever finding a job, the burden of student loan debt now larger than credit-card debt is crushing the hopes of young people, the presidents signature achievement, healthcare reform, is broadly unpopular, our borders are overrun by migrant children, Iraq is falling apart, Syria and Ukraine are in turmoil and the president seems hapless and ineffectual. Malaise was the term used in 1979 to describe the deep pessimism Americans felt about the way things were going in the country.

0bama’s presidency is too inert to be described as malaise.
That’s fine as long as it doesn’t affect his golf game.
And the country, on the whole, was in far better condition.
Stagflation too, although government statistics are being jiggered to cover it up.
It’s like, ‘Well you knew I was not competent or even eligible to be President... NOW you want to blame ME?’
How pathetic when you have to hide behind your stupidity and admit your OWN ignorance as a defense for your blunders!
I disagree with the assessment that if Obama were eligible to run a third time he would lose. The sheeple would dutifully re-elect him.
Kind of like...
"Who would want to live in a country that would elect me president!?!"
But he wasn't a criminal.
Obie kind of makes you nostalgic for the competency of Carter and the integrity of Clinton.
Right. Carter had no ill will toward his country.
This in Reuters? Well it’s a start I guess.
... but there’s still plenty of Obama-ass-kissing from CNN, The New York Times, Washington Post, etc. to more than offset.
When they start criticising, THAT will be news
Malaise would be an improvement.
Every malevolent action is deliberate.
CARTER WAS just a STUPID LIBTARD
OBAMA IS A TRAITOR
That moment began in January of 2009. Period. Full stop. End of story.
Totally agree- I work with die-hard Obama lovers, one has a signed picture from the One and Michelle in her cube.
I read little while ago Obama is now going to spend the summer visiting working folks that he has received letters from telling him how hard they are having things in life.
Today he is visiting a working mom....gag me.
This- while a hero and Marine sits in a Mexican prison..No time for him. Speaks volumes.
Nothing's changed. Here he is doing it again.
Clown Prince nobama is intentionally doing what he does and doesn’t do. Intentional. In a sick sense, the fool has been successful. The bum should be in prison...only to be released when he is so old that he can barely move and function.
I like that Reuters gets this is a malaise moment, but in the end they cheer for HITLERY as the solution So, it is a wasted column.
The US will never recover from Obama.
He is the least qualified President in our history and we are suffering accordingly.
