What a start for Obama
|By Ralph R. Reiland

"Well, That Certainly Didn't Take Long" was the headline on Maureen Dowd's column in The New York Times last Wednesday.
Dowd, unswervingly a Bush-basher and pro-Obama over the past two years, was referring to Obama's success in knocking himself off his elevated pedestal within two weeks of his inauguration.
Obama and his "arrogant attitude" went "SPLAT" (caps in Dowd's original) after a "cascade of appointments who 'forgot' to pay taxes" and the development of a "helter-skelter stimulus package."
Rasmussen Reports survey on Feb. 2 found that only 37 percent of Americans favor the administration-endorsed stimulus package. In a Gallup survey completed on Feb. 1, Obama's approval rating is 64 percent, down 19 points since his inauguration. Six more weeks of the same and he'll be at zero.
Simply put, the King of Hope became the Emperor with No Clothes even before the magazine covers celebrating his inauguration were off the shelves at Borders and Barnes & Noble.
A grand jury is looking into $1.5 million in taxpayers' money that ended up in the coffers of California-based CDR Financial Products after the company donated $100,000 to [Bill] Richardson to register Hispanic and American Indian voters.
Timothy Geithner, Obama's now-confirmed Treasury secretary (a job that includes control of the IRS), also failed to "jump in" and pay $34,000 on money he earned from 2001 to 2004 while working for the International Monetary Fund. "Had his (Geithner's) vote come after the Daschle news, it's likely that Geithner would be the one leaving town today," reported Newsweek on Feb. 4.

The Ayatollah Crapola..
The Ayatollah Crapola..
He’ll be at the elementary school tomorrow.
King of Hope for Dopes, that is.
Odooma. changeling and traitor marxist. Scaring the sheeple to follow his commie doctrine of hope-a-dope.
Zero's the name, Empty suit's the game.
Good; maybe he'll learn something.
83% approval rating seems a little inflated to me, considering he didn’t get that many votes. 64 sounds more like the original number should be. Should be solidly below 50% by the end of the year and should continue dropping the rest of his tenure.
“Freshman Senator created by the Chicago Political Machine Becomes Leader of the Free World.” The fact that he doesn’t know how to lead would be consistent with that headline. Or maybe this would be better: “The office of President of the United States to be Renamed ‘Global Community Organizer’”
Smoking Gun: Democrat Insider Says “Obama Has Secret Plan to Fund a Patronage System”
I believe it. Listen particularly to the last line the guy says.
“Helter Skelter Stimulus”. Perfect. It is obvious Obozo has no clue what is in it. It is just something he got his socialist friends to come up with. The gang of three Republicans who will make this go should be purged.
I’ll be sharing this one.
I am giving him only 6 months before he falls from grace. And I am waiting for the disappointed liberal feeding frenzy to happen, of which Dowd's column is, most probably, a harbinger.
The gist of the matter is: the Dumbs had a perfect chance to elect Hillary and cement Dumbo policies for decades to come. Instead, they went overboard and got Zero elected, biting off way more than the public can chew, let alone digest. In many ways, I am glad McCain, an unpredictable "conservative", but a decent man, did not inherit this mess.
