Posted on 12/10/2009 3:19:01 PM PST by AJKauf
I know Bush had his own list of catastrophes; other Presidents did as well. Again, my point is not trying to adjudicate relative culpability, but rather just to remind us all how and why Obama dived over 20 points in the polls in just 11 monthsand his speeches transformed from inspirational to caricatures.
In short, taken together, after nearly a year, these fissures have nearly ruined the once pretty texture of the Obama administration, and almost rendered it incapable of effective governance.
Here is a random selection. I provide no chronology or theme. Nor do I judge the relative importance of any one incident. The point, again, is only that each was a fissure, some small, some majorall were glued over. The result is that now the public understands that its china presidency is fragile and held together by mere glue.
Here it goes:
Constant apologies abroad for everything from slavery to Hiroshima
Bows to Saudi royalty, the Japanese emperor, and Chinese autocrats
The on-again/off-again Guantanamo shut-down mess
The fight with the former CIA directors
The public show trial of Khalid Sheik Mohammed
The reach out to Ahmadinejad Castro, Chavez, and assorted thugs....

He’s a puppet whose strings are being pulled by traitors. And, it’s now obvious.
We now have a POtuS about whom we do not know:
1. Grade School records
2. High School records
3. Occidental College records
4. Columbia University records
5. Columbia thesis
6. Harvard Law School records
7. Harvard Law Review articles
8. Articles from the University of Chicago
9. Passport History
10. Medical records
11. Files from his years as an Illinois state senator
12. Illinois State Bar Association records
13. Baptism records
14. Adoption records.
15. Place of birth.
I think that has something to do with it...buyer’s remorse for electing a marxist pig in a poke...
Because of the people he surounded himself with. Seriously, he is surround by the most unlikeable, easily despisable people of any president I can think of.
In a free country, free people essentially want to be left alone to pursue their private dreams.
They expect their politicians to take care of the street paving and garbage pickup and keep the goths from burning and pillaging and otherwise stay out from under foot.
They don’t want someone who thinks his destiny is to take over everyone’s life and remake America in his image. And they don’t want someone who is going to drone on and on and not shut up.
Do your job. Stop trying to be Dear Leader. Keep your hand out of our pockets. Stop trying to tell us how to run our business.
But for most people it's the economy and maybe the debt/deficit.
Because he’s a marxist occupier hell-bent on destroying America for the next 3 generations?
Americans don’t want some political thug destroying their kids future.
He isn’t American enough to understand what it means to BE an American.
Personally, I’m tired of seeing his big dumbo ears several times a week.
Alex, I'll take treasonous communist rat bastards for $100.
Everything he does is a big televised event. sick of him trying to spin and blame the ?inherited? mess. It is really getting old
I change the channel and/or mute TV or radio...the sound and sight of him grieves my spirit.
That's the problem right there. The asshat's on TV every eff'ing day, and even the people who were fooled into voting for him are sick of it.
From what can see I don’t think that they are. I used the term “they” instesd of “we” because I was never infauted with the sob and he is not my president. That being said, I was eating at a Maryland Fried Chicken place and there was one table with an older white man sitting there eating and by the wall there was a table with two younger white men sitting at it. They begin conversing with each other and soon the conversation led to how bad President Bush was and how brilliant and great obama is and what a good job obama was doing. It was still going along on these lines when I left.
Fools never learn. He fooled enough of them the last election. He will fool enough of them the next election/
I was tired of him the first time I heard of him
That's going to leave a skid mark.
That and a whole lot more. But it’s an excellent piece.
As he says, some items are more important than others, but it gets tiresome when you have a guy in the White House who can do NOTHING right. Then even the little things start to mount up.
For instance, it’s not really all that important that Michelle looks like something that crawled out of a bad fashion magazine, but when the press all announce and agree that she is the best dressed and most beautiful woman in the world, then you have to wonder about their sanity.
Why Are We Tiring of Obama?
Because he turned out to be the President that those of us who voted against him knew he would be, not the one his supporters were lead to believe he would be.
Obama is like an emissary from another World of Political and Economic Interests, who deigns to “stop in on us” periodically, and give a speech or two, between his far more pressing engagements with the rest of the planet, especially, symbolically, the Islamic World.
Eventually the cognitive dissonance will start to set in even amongst his supporters, that something is not right, not right at all, with this man being President of the United States. The enthusiasm will be replaced, yes, by
tiredness, and soon thereafter, the tiredness by confusion,
then confused anger, then probably a brief period of indifference, then,a little sobering up as next years elections rob them of their majority, and, at last, the final two phases, glum forebearance and they clench their jaws ,and finally resentfullness at him but also themselves with how stupid they were to elect him. THe last phase , a year and a half down the road, will be “HOW MUCH LONGER DO WE HAVE TO WAIT BEFORE THIS GUY IS GONE?????”
It makes me want to tell them I know they get their news from CNNABCCBSNBC and keep their radio tuned to NPR. They think they are so well informed it is terribly sad.
Media Wear out:
Funny how the Media’s favorite son is 1 poll point above the Media’s least favorite Daughter.
We tire of him because he is tiresome, shallow, lacks gravitas. He is not interested in us, so he is not interesting to us. He had one act and that always got him through when he was dealing with the gullible and math/logic impaired. He just doesn’t seem to have a firm grasp on what he is saying and has no real concepts. Yesterday he was giving a speech and it sounded like he had not even read through it before, mispronouncing the word “deluge” as if he had never seen the word before. I think he is finding the job to be much different than he imagined it would be.
More and more people are seeing that he really is a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist and more people are seeing that Marxism is truly antithetical to all that defines us as Americans.
I’m 71 years old and do not have enough time left or the energy left to make a complete listing.
The history of the current President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these United States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
1. He has violated his oath to defend the US Constitution by exercising powers forbidden by the Constitution.
Barack Obama seems to have a disdain for the US Constitution. Curiously he used to teach the Constitution. The then Senator Obama said of his time as a professor at the University of Chicago: I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution. Its nice to know he respects the Constitution. Its too bad he does not preserve, protect and defend the Constitution also.   
2. He has used public money to purchase private companies.
Obamas administration purchased General Motors. The Constitution forbids the government from buying and running private industries.
3. He has illegally tried to use public money to create publicly owned companies.
Obamas government tried to create a health insurance company. The Constitution forbids the government from doing this.
4. He has embezzled public money allocated by Congress for rescuing distressed private financial institutions, and used it to purchase automobile manufacturing companies.
The public tax money Obama used for the General Motors purchase was designated by law for the support of distressed financial companies. It was not to be used for anything else. Obama took Congresses money and spent it on a car company against the law of Congress.
5. He has given our public money to finance foreign automobile companies.
The so-called Cash for Clunkers program redistributed the public tax money and gave it to car dealers. The overwhelming majority of the automobiles purchased were of foreign make. Much of the money for those automobiles wound up lining the pockets of foreign automobile manufacturers.
6. He has given our public money to a foreign state to finance their state-run oil company while refusing to allow us to develop our own oil resources.
Obama financed a Brazilian oil company using public tax money to search for foreign oil in Brazil. The company, Brazil-owned Petrobras, was a wealthy state run company, perfectly capable of doing the search itself. This was effectively a gift of US tax money to the investors in the company and its owner. At the same time we have plenty of oil in the US to search for and produce, especially in Alaska, and yet Obama denies us the right to develop our own oil resources.
7. He has violated the principle of balance of powers by usurping Congress role of law maker.
Even the more radical leftists in Congress complained about his power grab. According to the complaints of the leftist politicians Obama is usurping the power of lawmaker from Congress through his czars.
8. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
Obamas financial plans for the recovery are based on communist, socialist and fascist ideas with no history of success, and every history of failure. While forcing these pre-doomed plans onto the economy, he would not execute economic practices that are know to work. He pursued tax-and-spend economic policies, while refusing supply-side, tax cut based plans. This has extended the suffering caused by the recession. He tried to help the issues in banking without having a clear plan.
9. He has ignored the laws protecting us from the insolvency of financial institutions.
According to bankruptcy law, specifically the Prompt Corrective Action law, failed banks are supposed to close and go into receivership to the government. Obama ignored the law. Instead he propped up failing banks artificially using public tax money and nationalized them. The law exists for a reason. It protects the banking system from collapse.
10. He has demanded and implemented Tax-and-Spend laws that inevitably lead to economic collapse.
Obama claimed promised to not raise taxes as President. He raised taxes by turning them into debt to be paid later. He is also trying to raise taxes by driving up the costs of energy which especially hurts the poor. 
11. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by appointing a judge to the Supreme Court based not on ability to interpret the Constitution, but on radical ideology and color of skin.
Obamas choice for Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor was certainly based on her latino heritage. She also has a history of radicalism that makes it clear that her legal judgment is heavily slanted. 
12. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Czars to harass our people and eat out their substance.
Other Presidents have had czars, or the equivalent. Obama has created more of them than any other President. His czars are more radical and on the political fringe than those of any other President in history. Through them his is overriding the role of Congress as lawmaker.
13. He has violated the balance of powers by appointing Czars with far reaching powers who are accountable to no one but himself.
The Presidents cabinet needs to be approved by Congress. The Founders set things up this way for a reason. Obamas czars form a shadow cabinet. Sometimes the czars have as much power as the cabinet members. The czars sometimes create laws which is a responsibility of Congress.
14. He has as a matter of patronage stolen private industries from shareholders and given them to workers unions.
After Obama took over GM and Chrysler, he gave a large ownership of the companies to the Auto Workers unions. These unions were big supporters of his during the Presidential election.
15. He has substantially benefitted his political financial supporters by giving public money to foreign industries.
George Soros is a huge supporter of Obama and his causes. Just days before Obama gave billions of public tax money to Brazil-owned Petrobras, Soros made a big financial move that earned him millions from Obamas gift.
16. He has arranged very large unscrupulous deals with private companies to exchange public money for his political advertising.
Obama arranged large potential deals with pharmacy companies. Those same companies gave large amounts of money to Obama for his presidential campaign. They have the ability to give more large amounts in the next election.
17. He has attempted to create a public industry, a health insurance company, that would compete with existing and similar private industries in open defiance of the consent of the people, and the letter and intent of the Constitution.
This cause for impeachment, of course, is the imfamous H.R.3200 unconstitutional and very unpopular socialized medicine bill. The overwhelming majority of the US population doesnt want it, yet he still insists on forcing it on us.
18. He has attempted to annul free of speech by setting up an illegal reporting system for recording the names of dissenters and by publicly attacking private citizens who oppose him.
He set up a reporting system for people to email tattle tales about possibly incorrect or misleading information about H.R.3200 to his office. This would create a dampening effect on the peoples First Amendment right to discuss legislation. He also has openly and publicly attacked private citizens from his office. He is presently attempting to financially punish the forms of media, namely talk radio, which are most critical of him, effectively charging those media companies an unconscienable tax, one equal to their earnings, to stay in business. He intends to use those taxes to pay for equivalents to those forms of media that he controls.
19. He has counted illegal aliens as citizens to skew his standing with Congress.
Obama is intending in the 2010 census to count all people in the US without questioning their citizenship status. This brings the US one step further in losing our national identity. This false counting of the people gives those districts with large numbers of illegal aliens greater representation in the House of Representatives. This is effectively turning the government over to a foreign power to some degree. This is an act of treason.
20. He has illegally fired Inspectors General who found wrong-doing with his political crones.
Obama fired nspector General Walpin in an illegal manner after Walpin discovered legal improprieties committed by Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, one of Obamas political supporters. Obama did not give a reason for his firing. In a like manner, he fired Inspector General David Hoffman after Hoffman found wrongdoings with a nephew of Chicagos infamous Mayor Daley, who is a longtime political associate of Obamas.
21. He has attempted to insert himself into even the most personal life experience, our end of life care.
Part of Obamas unconstitutional H.R.3200 contains a provision for government evaluation and counseling for end of life care and potentially provides a paid service that affects the income of the counselor, benefiting them if the patient dies. This is horribly immoral.
22. He has attempted to refuse to pay for medical treatment for wounded soldiers.
In an unbelievably disgraceful act, Obama tried to talk the Veterans Administration into having US soldiers pay for their medical treatment for wounds received in combat using their own medical insurance.
23. He has refused his assent to Laws of Congress, exercising false powers of veto that are contrary and insubordinate to the Constitution.
Congress passed a bill directing how money from the International Monetary Fund should be spend. Obama effectively vetoed sections of the bill, saying that they interfered with his ability to conduct foreign relations. According the Constitution Obama does not have the right to conduct foreign relations, except as provided by Congress. He invented a nonexistent right to a line item veto, and then justified it with a nonexistent right to conduct foreign relations which were themselves contrary to the requirements of Congress.
24. He has contradicted and violated the rule of law regarding bankruptcy after forcing the failure of one of our largest automakers.
According to bankruptcy law, secured creditors get paid by the bankrupt organization before unsecured creditors. When Chrysler went into bankruptcy Obama gave the United Auto Workers $0.50 on the dollar for their unsecured debt, while giving the shareholders only $0.25 on the dollar for their secured debt. This is in complete contradiction to bankruptcy law.
25. He has appointed a Secretary of State who is ineligible for office.
Obama appointed President Clintons wife, Hillary Clinton, to Secretary of State even though she is clearly illegal according to the Constitution. No Senator who votes for an increase in salary for a Cabinet office, such as Secretary of State, can be eligible for that office for a given period of time. Obama decided to ignore the Constitution, and appointed Clinton anyway.
26. He has attempted to force all citizens into mandatory servitude to the government.
Obama originally planned to force every US citizen to do some kind of social work for the government for a minimum number of hours per year. Then he tried to make this applicable to only minors, which would also violate the child labor laws. 
27. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our lands, the merciless Islamo-fascist terrorists whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
Obama promised to close the prisons for terrorists in Guantamo Bay in Cuba. To close this he will have to bring the prisoners to the US. He has also been actively involved with US radicals as a community organizer where he taught, preached and encouraged social disruption that favored radical socialists, communists and other alien ideologies.
28. He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
Obama has supported large complex bills that were produced for review only hours before Congress had the opportunity to vote on them. The members of Congress had no time to review the bills. The citizens did not have the opportunity to review and discuss them. The Constitution requires that the public be able to review and discuss legislation. Obama is required by his duty under his oath to veto all such bills.
29. He has combined with Communist, Socialists and Fascists to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our American character, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.
Most notably, the Communists, Socialists and Fascists are Obama czars. He has a long history of associating and supporting such individuals.
30. He has, in collusion with an insolent and irresponsible Congress, imposed Taxes against our consent not only on us, but also on our beloved children and our grandchildren denying them any representation.
Obama executed H.R.1, misnamed the Stimulus Bill, under the pretense that this bill would help fix the recession, when in reality it appears it had more to do with political payolla for support for his candidacy for President. The debt incurred by this bill and other similar bill will take generations to pay off. Future generations had no say in these imposed taxes, so this is a classic example of the crime of taxation without representation.
31. He has nullified parts of our Constitution, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally our Form of Government.
I am adding 32.
32. Aiding, abetting and providing comfort to the enemy via directives as CIC of ROE that put troops in danger for their lives. Calling for the enemy (terrorists) to obtain Miranda Rights in the war zone and have a trial on the very soil they flew airplanes into causing massive death and terror.
My daughter and her family are getting a private tour of the WH next week. I told my youngest grandson that this was quite an honor but that I didn’t like the people who live there. Before they go they have do undergo a security check. my daughter said that she may not get in because of me.
This is the same grandson who told his Kindergarten class that if Obama was elected he would axe all their mommies and daddies. My daughter got a lot of calls over this. What he actually said was that O would TAX all of them.
Tired of being taken to the cleaners by this idiot.
As well as the identities of the hundreds of thousands of “small” credit card contributions to the campaign
When the closest thing to executive experience in your resume is scooping ice cream as someone else's employee the presidency would be somewhat of a shock to you.
Because he arrived from an unknown place bearing a book: “To Serve Man.”
As well as the identities of the thousands of “small” credit card contributions to the campaign
Obama's documented personal history is so thin as to evoke a "myth" -- the kind of personal history that the CIA and MI-6 gave their operatives.
It's comparatively easy to provide a driver's license -- even a Certicate of Live Birth. It's hard to provide the texture of a life actually lived, friends and teachers who actually shared common experiences.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not a "birther". But I am extremely curious as to why we don't know more about him -- why the media has reported (conducted?) no explorations into his previous life. Whatever it was...
Hell, we know that Hillary actually tried to join the Marines (or, at least, she said so). Did Obama ever inquire about the military? What were his views as a young man?
We can only speculate. And I believe we're right...
The Manchurian Sock Puppet
is exposed and in over his head
hopping from speech to speech
obeying the almighty teleprompter
while others run the country for him
meanwhile, Jimmy Carter rejoices
as we have found our new worse President, ever!
I think it's a pretty darn good way to gauge their bias.
Excellent list, but he missed a few items—like firing the investigator who was closing in on his friend, the mayor of Sacramento, and the airplane sent to snap photos of New York City which people there thought was another 9/11 terror attack.
Oh, did he really do that? I had no idea he actually did something useful in his life.
So it has been said. I don’t know if there is any proof of it.
Haven’t you heard? The left’s new meme is that Obama is the new Reagan.
ODUMBO reminds me of one of those bad jingle commericals, you heard on the radio every day and can get off you mind.
Hmmmm...No record of it...just like everything else in his resume.
Has any one person ever come forward and shared memories of BHO as a childhood friend? A college room mate? A buddy at the Harvard Law Review? A blind date set up by one of her mom’s friends? Anything? If one has, I missed it. It’s like the thing materialized on earth, like a Star Trek villain.
well said, and this question has been asked many times
aided and abetted by a media who investigated Joe the plumber Wurzelbacher more in 24 hours than they did Baraq in 24 months of the campaign
Bingo! And it includes his many boring appearances.
Sugarcoating this inept turd for public consumption just 'cause he happened to be "chocolate" will become the low water mark for the media.
All he had going in was speechefying, like Hillary said about 2004 Dem convention- and that is getting very tiresome. Nobody can 'talk' their way through a four year presidency- they'll be expected to act at some point- and he can't, doesn't know how, and would serve the country best if he just resigned, tomorrow.
I'm sure he didn't lie about scooping ice cream. /s
To quote a famous lesbian, “There is no there there.”
I don't think "tiring" is the right word, but the reason is that he is the first ***-of-a-***** to occupy public housing at 1600 Penn Ave to actively and openly work for the diminution of America.
I volunteer to do what I can to scuttle the b*****d's plans.
