Zogby Report Card: America is 'just giving up' on Obama
The Washington Examiner's Washington Secrets ^ | July 12, 2014 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 07/12/2014 7:54:39 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that the troubles dogging President Obama and his inability to handle them have prompted even his most ardent supporters to give up.

"Now some people have really bad weeks. Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff got an 'F' after the nation's soccer team lost to Germany.

“But President Obama's week was just as bad. Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many American citizens are worried.

“It just seems that even those who have been so hopeful of this president are finally just giving up. Things just appear to be out control, at least out of his control. A very bad week."

Grade: F

Zogby is the senior analyst for Zogby Analytics and author (with Joan Snyder Kuhl) of "The First Globals: Understanding, Managing, and Unleashing our Millennial Generation."

Grade “F.” Hey, that is just what the feckless fool on the hill deserves. This man is absolutely worthless. An “F” grade is being charitable.

He knows exactly what he’s doing.
He is ‘fundamentally changing America’- just as he promised.

His Cloward-Piven scheme is working perfectly.

Every day it’s a new atrocity.
Is there no one to stop this mad man while we still have some remnants of our America left?

I think that Obama is a marionette who dances on the strings of his controllers, the main one being Valerie Jarrett. She hates the United States and wants to bring it down. She's done a good job of it.

But . . . and I think this is where Obama's controllers are deluded. They think that they can create all sorts of chaos and that the people will instinctively turn to the Feds and willingly give up their freedom for some illusory security. I think they couldn't be more wrong about that. Quite to the contrary. After five years of Obama and his federal power grab, the prestige of the federal government has never been lower. Maybe after Watergate it was lower, but I doubt it. Essentially nobody in fly-over country has any faith at all in the feds.

They think they're pulling the people closer to Washington but they're actually creating a very powerful centripetal force driving the people and their States away from Washington. The States and counties (Sheriff Joe is riding high right now) are increasing in power and influence. Not the feds.

Typical deluded libtard thinking. Which is why I, as a dyed-in-the-wool States rights guy, see a silver lining to this terrible black cloud. The fedgov is terribly weakened by all of this. It might never recover basic trust. Heck, federal troops wussies out and ran like scared rats from a ragtag bunch of militiamen at Bundy Ranch recently. They can't secure a border. Nobody could possibly take them seriously.

I'd say Zero has actually been good for my cause so far. I hate to say that. I really do. I wish it didn't have to come to this. But it did. But another couple years of this madness - throw in another couple of humiliating SCOTUS defeats, abuse-of-power scandals, maybe a nice financial meltdown, a terrorist attack or two or three and so on - and we might just see a slew of Red States adopting in their Constitutions the principle of state nullification of federal law.

Any libtard who ever thought that Cloward-Piven would work was delusional from the get-go. And besides, the clear trend of history is away from centralized power. The former Yugoslavia. The former Soviet Union. Nowadays Catalonia and Scotland are vying for decentralized control of their own destinies. For people who don't believe in American exceptionalism, they sure do seem to think that America is a major exception from the de-centralizing trend of the past 30 years.

The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many American citizens are worried.

They aren't immigrant children. They are illegal aliens who happen to be minors. And it's Americans who are in danger.

Then again, with an illegal alien Usurper in the White House hellbent on destroying America, we should all be worried!

Interesting point-no major law firm hired him, not even the Rat firms. Editor of the Harvard Law Review and Professor Lawrence Tribe calling him one of the best students he ever taught, and a person of color to boot. He should have had offers from every major law firm in the United States.

Hussein and Jarrett’s strategy has been to cause all kinds of disasters, Obama care, illegals, Behghazi and then constantly blaming Republicans for not cleaning up all the disasters that he made. That’s their strategy. If I were in the House as a Republican, I would have been mad as hell a long time ago for his insults. It doesn’t seem to bother them.

I thought he was a lawyer, sort of, for a while and that is where he met another affirmative action Ivy Leaguer, Michelle, who graduated despite writing a ridiculous thesis.

Two peas in a pod - although I suspect he has somewhat more basic intelligence than she does.

Let’s look at what Obama is saying:

****************************************
“Now, I don’t know which things they find most offensive — me helping to create jobs, or me raising wages, or me easing the student loan burdens, or me making sure women can find out whether they’re getting paid the same as men for doing the same job. I don’t know which of these actions really bug them.”

“So it’s not clear how it is that Republicans didn’t seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did. Maybe it’s just me they don’t like. I don’t know. Maybe there’s some principle out there that I haven’t discerned, that I haven’t figure out. You hear some of them — ‘sue him,’ ‘impeach him.’ Really? Really? For what? You’re going to sue me for doing my job? OK.”

“You’re going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job — while you don’t do your job. So rather than wage another political stunt that wastes time, wastes taxpayers’ money, I’ve got a better idea: Do something. If you’re mad at me for helping people on my own, let’s team up. Let’s pass some bills. Let’s help America together.”
****************************************

It’s easy to see the narcissism in all the “I, me, I, I, me, me, I, ...” posted above. But that’s not news to much of anyone now; conservatives have always seen it.

What is new about Obama now?

I’ve known from almost the moment I became aware of him in 2008 from leaked testimony of what was said in the Getty home in San Francisco that he was a creation of the homosexual left which is intelligently evil, passive-aggressive, hiding its true radical character from view and dangerous.

Observing his words and thought patterns above shows as we have all known that he is out of his league. But what is different now is his brazen defiance and his schoolyard pugnaciousness. This is very sad and alarming for our country.

In the meantime, after Boehner has surrendered the only real power the House had over Obama, the power of the purse, and while he runs for cover to the courts to make pinpricks about the Affordable Care Act, conservatives are reeling from learning what they thought they would never see; brazen, vicious and criminal GOP corruption and attacks against GOP conservatism in Mississippi.

Right now, there is nothing to stop Obama. But note that his handlers will keep him in check just enough to rile up the whole country against him.
