"The "Clueless" President Obama deserves about the same deference for his blame game as a teenager shirking his responsibilities and blaming someone else for the cigarettes found in his school backpack. At some point, the buck stops here and that means no more enemies lists, no more blaming Bush, grow up, take responsibility, and perform the job you were elected to fulfill."

Enough of blaming Bush for every wrong in the world.

Well, they have kinda' gone after Cheney a bit lately however me thinks they know they would lose that fight and are backing off.

Alas, "Bushes Fault" will be with us for quite some time until another of their political foe take office again.

Good article. Is anyone in America waking up, or are they all still waiting for Obama to pay their rent and buy their gas?

Here, Obama, take this Trillion Dollars of taxpayer money, er excuse me, Gubbermint money and buy a clue........

If Obama and his Chicago thugs simply focused on the country's real enemies rather than American citizens and institutions which provide constructive criticism and honest discourse on the policies ...

In 0bama's mind, the country's real enemies ARE the American citizens and institutions which provide constructive criticism and honest discourse on the policies.

Small world! Just the other day, I was think how low the Democrat party had fallen ... all the way from Harry "The Buck Stops Here" Truman to Barack "It's Bush's Fault" Obama.

So sad.

Obama doesn’t need a clue, he needs to step down or be IMPEACHED...

Obama failed and he can not turn his failures around.

I don't know about the rest of the American citizens, but I'm getting pretty sick of watching the Obamas spend our tax dollars going out on date nights, hosting gala affairs at the White House, dancing a jig to whatever latest ethnic music group fills their politically correct agenda, traveling the world caving to the country's true enemies, and perpetually campaigning while the country is going to pot.

I think Ms. Regan is reading my mind.

You speak the truth. Our country is being destroyed at the highest levels and from the inside. In effect, we are at war with ourselves.

There is no more Democratic party, they are all marxist sycophants. Unfortunately, the Republicans, in large part, are no better and are aiding and abetting.

"Clueless"? I don't think so.

"Soul-less"? "Patriotminded-less"? "Morality-less"? "Decency-less"? Yes. I think so.

This is like the seven stages of mourning.

First we were told that Obama was inexperienced, an empty suit, as though that explained his hold on the people. Then we were told that he could not speak without a Teleprompter. We were told this after he thrashed John McCain in the debates. We were told that he is stupid even as he was tearing apart our nation block by block.

Now we are told that Obama is naïve, that he does have a clue, that he does not get it. Nothing could be further from the truth. Obama is not stupid, not inarticulate, not naïve, and he certainly knows what he is doing. He is governing according to his lights and he's doing it remarkably well.

He is governing as a Marxist.

He is not governing as a Chicago Pol, he is not governing as a gangster-although all those things are the byproducts of his Marxism-he is governing exactly as what he is, a radical bent on junking the Constitution, American sovereignty and the capitalist system, such as it is.

I am surprised that someone could get published in the American Thinker who wastes our time, indeed, who diverts us from the true understanding of Obama.

Know thine enemy.

Bingo; you speak the truth. However, it will be terribly hard for middle America to accept that Obama is their enemy and to act accordingly. We now live in a world with "Sarkozy The American" and "Obama the anti-American."

Your point is well taken, however on some aspects, I would argue that he is naive and inarticulate, and frankly I am convinced he is not very intelligent and could very easily be classified as "stupid".

His puppet masters on the other hand ....

Obama is not clueless.

He has no intention of governing. It's not paranoid fantasy to state that Obama intends to be a dictator. He's a common thug who embraces Marxism.

The belief in Marxism is real as the Communists who surround him.

The list is long.

Today he assumes emergency powers with Swineflu as the excuse.

He has taken over industries and intends to take over more. He has bullied corporations and seeks to set executives' wages.

He intends to exert control over the internet through "net neutrality", controlling the greatest medium of free speech ever invented.

Obama will not reveal his long form birth certificate and many other records that conceal his past and no hospital will claim him.

Obama is not clueless. He will undermine this country.

Everyone needs to get a clue.

They have an "attitude" of entitlement and like other nouveau riche wannabes
they have a taste for conspicuous consumption and showing off for their friends.
It's a way of working through self-esteem issues and resentments. $500 sneakers.
But they do seem very out of touch with what's going on in the country and how this comes across.
Disengaged.

You nailed it!! They had this planned and ORGANIZED all along. I’m quite sure in my mind that Obama, even whilst being a Fraud and not even being eligible for the Office of President, won the election by Acorn voter fraud. Massive fraud. More than the American people can probably even fathom. Nothing but disaster for America will proceed from this grotesque tyrant. CO

Amen to that. He and his thugs are precisely why Hamilton warned:

"The fabric of American empire ought to rest on the solid basis of THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE. The streams of national power ... flow from that pure, original fountain of all legitimate authority.

- Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 22, December 14, 1787

... or ...

As Paine warned (my tagline):

"It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government."

He is really an incredibly stupid individual. Here’s a guy that won the election by 5-6 percentage points and for some reason things he can ignore and demonize those who he views as “not his kinda’ people and who likely did not vote for him.
Message to Junior: It was no mandate and, from a recent poll on 43% said they would vote for you again. So, grow up or resign.

This is just too good not to share ..... Email that I just got.

Gubmint and How Gubmint Works

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?” So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?” So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?” So They created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, Then hired two people. Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?” So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one Year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost.” So they laid off the night watchman. NOW slowly, let it sink in. Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter.

Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY..... during the Carter Administration? Anybody? Anything? No? Didn’t think so!

Bottom line. We’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency...the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember!

Ready?? It was very simple...and at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted on 8-04-1977 under Jimmy Carter. TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.

Hey, pretty efficient, huh???

AND NOW IT’S 2009 — 32 YEARS LATER — AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS “NECESSARY” DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR.. THEY HAVE 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES; AND LOOK AT THE JOB THEY HAVE DONE! THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY, “WHAT WAS I THINKING?”

Ah, yes — good ole bureaucracy.

AND, NOW, WE ARE GOING TO TURN THE BANKING SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND THE AUTO INDUSTRY OVER TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT?
HELLOOO! Anybody Home? Only the sheeple and Socialists?

A student of Economics 101 would understand the significance of the Laffer curve -- that borrowing money, printing money, and taxing the citizens will only result in a devastated economy and a ruined nation.

So would a student of Cloward-Piven Strategy.

What was the point of taking on the presidency if they didn't have a plan to turn the country in the right direction and help American citizens better their lives?

I'm thinking the point of taking on the presidency was to increase the personal wealth of certain politically-connected individuals.

Next question?
