Barack Obama has already checked out of his job

Barack Obama has already checked out of his job

The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing

President Obama has emotionally checked out of his job a couple of years early, it seems. How can one tell? Candidates for president who brazenly assume they are the inevitable victor are sometimes accused of “measuring the drapes” for the White House. Obama, conversely, seems to be prematurely packing his bags in hopes for an early departure.

When did he ever check in?

If the Dems get slaughtered in 2014, they’ll be the ones trying to impeach Obama.

Why not. The GOP isn’t making him work for anything.

If Obama’s job was supposed to be upholding the constitution and acting in the best interests of the United State at home and internationally he never “checked in” for it.

I believe he considers his job to be diminishing the power and influence of the United States both militarily and economically so as to make this country a client state of a UN-based world government.

Unfortunately I’d say he’s doing a “heck of a job”.

“Why not. The GOP isn’t making him work for anything.”

The only way the GOP can “Make him work for anything” is if the media does its job, and reports what is going on FAIRLY, therefore putting pressure on Obama.

And that simply is not going to happen, if the media people want to keep their jobs. The examples of this are numerous, and they all know it.

The obvious plus side of having a ‘check-out’ president, is that he does much less harm than were he fully engaged in his hobby sport of destroying the United States. So I say, let him golf, let him sip beer with his handpicked photo-op ‘pals’. Anyday now, I expect to see him taking John Stamos’ place on that Greek Yogurt commercial. In his version, it will be Michelle who ‘pops up’ at the kitchen door, not a mother figure as with John Stamos. So yes, I say “let him eat yogurt!” as though he had not a care in the wide, wide world.

We knew this in the debates with Romney. He didn’t even try. The moderators carried him. And the only people who didn’t know it were the fools at Romneys campaign headquarters.

Shills are Shills in a con game precisely because they want big money but they don’t want to work hard to get it. Obama is a Shill. Even he is getting tired of the con.

He has always been a puppet with someone else pulling the strings. Biggest sham Presidency ever.

Obama: What kind of life is he going to lead once he leaves office?

Once he becomes a private citizen again, he will be booed all over the country --- outside of the LATIN community---the rest of his life because of this illegal immigration mess.

He won't have the power of the presidency to hide behind anymore.

And what about his two children? When they grow up, there is a strong possibility that they too will be booed the rest of their lives, and, to add insult to injury, will find themselves having to defend their lying father and his immigration policies the rest of their lives. Sad.

“Barack Obama has already checked out of his job”

Hell he has just like Ali’s old “rope a dope”. The thug in chief has a lot more to do, like giving carte blanche to illegals, and helping to oversee the rise of Islamist terrorists, restricting fossil fuels and on and on.

When did he check in? Most POTUS check in at the swearing in but I’ve yet to have proof positive he got through that properly.

I do not believe that for a second. While he seems aloof, disinterested and bored, he knows exactly what he is doing to destroy the country.

Please, do not be misled.

His CZARs can still do plenty of damage in the next 2 years, however.

President doing nothing matches a Congress doing nothing. If they can’t agree, we’re better off.

The author of the article above is saying exactly the same thing I said a few days ago, except that the author created a whole article, with a lot more words, to say the same things.

I'd be more than willing to arrange that for him.

Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.”

The GOP could always take their case directly to the people. There are ways of doing it - they just need to get creative.

But first they need to find the will.

You are basically admitting that the GOP is worthless since all their opposition depends on the Obama loving media.

The way I see it... For the most part if a good percentage of the GOP is helping the Democrats takeover. For instance, they no longer protect our border (you know what makes up a country) and they encourage people to sign up for welfare, get a free housing, free medical and free education. Then for the most part there is no opposition.
