The World Bids Farewell To Obama
Jan. 21, 2010, 9:32 AM
US President Barack Obama suffered a painful defeat in Massachusetts on Tuesday. With mid-term elections looming, it means that Obama will have to fundamentally re-think his political course. German commentators say it is the end of hope.
US President Barack Obama has had a number of difficult weeks during his first year in the White House. Right after he took office, he had to wade through a week full of partisan bickering over his economic stimulus package combined with a tax scandal surrounding Tom Daschle, the man Obama had hoped would lead his health care reform team. Then there was the last week of 2009, when a failed terror attack on a flight inbound for Detroit exposed major flaws in US efforts to identify and stop potential terrorists.
This week, though -- a week when Obama should have been celebrating the first anniversary of his inauguration -- may have been the president's worst yet.

Hey 0b0z0, are you enjoying that Hope and Change from former Kennedy land aka Camelot?!
We, hope that you enjoyed your honeymoon first year as Potus. What happened January 19, 2010 in former Kennedy Land aka Camelot, was just the beginning as we take back our country.
The germans have it wrong. It is now the being of hope.
Au contraire, mon amie............
I do not care what OTHER countries think. Its the United States that is SAVING HAITI...and the United States that ALWAYS is the beacon of light in this dark world. What the people of Mass did....was comparable to the revolution...the people are holding THEIR elected leaders accountable....something CUBA, RUSSIA, CHINA, FRANCE...will not and can not do. God Bless the United States, baby!
“...US President Barack Obama has had a number of difficult weeks during his first year in the White House...”
Maybe it’s time to take another long, tax payer funded vacation.
Obama and the Democrats are like a Kamikazi Pilot in the midst of his final dive. Look Out Below! Pour on the ack ack fire.
Not to worry folks, bammy will just reach into his deep resevoir of practical governing and management experience and change course. Oh yea, he has no experience. Okay, he will turn to his valued advisors who have a deep resevoir of governing and managing. Oh yea, he has no one on his staff that has that experience (they are all from Chicago). Okay, he will reach out to Hillary and Bill for guidance and tap into those white blue collar workers that cling to their religion and guns and all will be well. Oh yea, Hillary and Bill are calculating that now with the Kennedy wing of the party dead, buried and humiliated, the Clinton wing could clean up the party and rebrand it as “competent, experienced, and caring” and sweep Hillary into office. Okay, I have no idea where bammy goes from here. My guess is he will start a war with someone; so far he lost to Fox News and the banks and insurance companies, so who is left?
AWWWW poor barry is faced with real decisions. His media is so upset that he had such a tough year. HEY BARRY, you applied for the job, now man up and do your damn job. The rest of us had a lot tougher year than you kenya boy. We can’t take vacations when things get tough. We have no sympathy for you. Deal with it.
Yay! Let's "hope" for a "change" in 2012.
If Obama were as popular as Europe thinks he is, one GOP Senator wouldn’t be able to derail his whole agenda. True leaders do not require a supermajority to get things done — Ronald Reagan implemented his agenda with the opposing party running both houses.
The widespread appeal of Obama’s liberalism is a myth.
"After all, he still has a majority in Congress -- he could back away from his strategy of bipartisanship..."
Yep, his over the top bi-partisanship really did him in.
Barry, we hardly knew ye.
We should be so lucky.
I suspect he’ll just call another “mulligan” and continue with his death plans.
How about a lifetime in Saudi land or Indonesia where he would readily feel at home?
Well I guess that white guys who own guns are the only ones left.
Music to my conservative ears.
Obozo has taken several harpoons here. With blood in the water I wonder how long it will be before we see some leaks about his legal standing to be POTUS. I think the “birthers” might be vindicated. Now wouldn’t THAT be fun to watch!
The article actually includes that statement? Please, someone show me a hint of an inkling of "bipartisanship" since bambi took office or even since madam botox became Speaker.
I read the German article. If they like him so much, why not offer him leadership of their country. I’d gladly contribute toward sending him there.
It was fitting that this happened on Robert E. Lee's birthday.
It'll be the democrats in Washington pushing it! Their life of tax payer paid luxury and privilege is on the line, too.
The end of scum sucking socialist politicians and their useful idiots is the beginnning of hope for a Free Republic’s most valuable citizens.
I’m thinking this is the beginning of the ‘spin-out’...
Just like a loose car on the road during an ice storm. You see it begin to swerve and lose control before the total dance across both sides of the road...
So long barry, we hardly knew ye. -Thank GOD.
Here I was thinking nobama would be more suited as Grand Poopah of that garbage dump Hateee. He wouldn’t have to work so hard at destroying its economy and the hatee-ians will just love the crumbs from manschelles kobe-beef and lobster plate.
I was thinking of a different German word to describe this.
Without question, Europeans wished BO's agenda on this country out of sheer love and goodwill.
Remember, he is the guy that couldn't/wouldn't make a decision about 40K troops in Afghanistan. He agonized for months over the number then approved only 75% of what is commanding general asked for.
The other 10K he kept back he immediately threw at Haiti, and he is continuing to throw in bonus numbers. Instead of asking for UN action he reflexively committed the US for an all new quagmire. What a guy!
He is more versed in the Koran than voo dooo thus, in thinking of his welfare and mental comfort he is better off at home in Saudi land or Indonesia.
He has proved on may points he is not an American, nor does he have an understanding of what it is or how it works. But he still strives to “improve” it.
From the article on Spiegel:
“he could back away from his strategy of bipartisanship ... which would mean giving up much of what he spent his first year in office creating.”
Absolutely unbelievable. His strategy of bipartisanship??
Not so fast, still a very dangerous man.
Prepare for a "wag the dog" event if his ratings fall much more. Almost 100% sure to happen.
Buy defense stocks soon.
I love the headline.
Now if the article only came with photo’s of a U-Haul backed up to the While House and Michelle screaming at Obama as she loads her kids into “clunker”.
You are so right!
Of that I am certain.
Germans making bad political assessments?
Say it isn’t true!
If it’s President Bush’s fault, than this is Bush’s win. Congrats W for such a good swing at the Kennedys. Kennedy Compound, indeed.
Since the last war, Germany has had more economic sense than the rest of Europe. So you’d think they’d be a bit less delusional than this.
Obama has saved the banks, saved the car industry, saved the world, and now he wants to save healthcare, but the American people don’t appreciate his enormous accomplishments?
Obama has tried to work with everyone and be a bipartisan leader, but now he might have to stop being so nice to the opposition and turn partisan?
What planet do these guys live on?
No. They have the convinction that, if he continues piling up debt, he will be throwing away the country's future--and destroying the United States--terminating "The American Experiment"--and ending "The American Dream."
"For everyone else in the world, this means that they will have to bid farewell to a candidate for whom the hopes were so high. They will have to say goodbye to the charisma they fell in love with."
If "everyone else in the world" considers falling in love with charisma to be adequate reason for choosing a political leader--then "everyone else in the world" is a fool!
And this from Germany--of all places--who should know--if anyone does--the danger of choosing a political leader because of dazzling charisma!
Yes--the Germans have fallen in love with charisma before!
Considering this stark example of history--"everone else in the world" should be profoundly grateful for the Americans who value sobriety and clarity and the careful evaluation of substance and meaning in choosing political leaders and refuse to fall in love with--and therefore be distracted by--"charisma (which certainly does not include all Americans).
In a dangerous world--a world so dangerous as this--clarity and sobriety are to be valued all the more!
The people of the world had better be grateful--and had better begin to choose sobriety and clarity in evaluating their leaders rather than dazzling "charisma"!
Clear-thinking, sober people have to make up for the fools who fall in love with charisma!
So long BO! Don’t let the conservative door hit you in the a$$.
Wow! Ronald Reagan said that???
From this thread to God's eyes......amen.
Goodie for him. Best to stay out of the limelight and off TV and let the will of the People prevail.
It always works BEST that way.
the interesting thing to me is this
they are living it up ...they know they won’t be there for another 4 years...taking advantage of everything..BUT
what happens when it is over??
Obamanazi will be so unpopular and so radioactive..what kind of speaking fees is he going to get?
how is he going to support his family in high style...will Soros withhold the payout to him....
