Skip to comments.Are These the Last Days of Barack Obama?

Eighteen months in, the Obama presidency is in as dreadful shape as one can imagine. Hell almost certainly lose the House in the fall elections; and now its looking like he could lose the theoretically impregnable Democratic majority in the Senate. Whats more, he has, to an astonishing degree, been unable to communicate even the remotest sense of who he is to the nation: a middle-of-the-roader, by any estimation, and yet a majority of the country thinks hes a socialist.
In the summer before his election, Obama had a secret meeting with that dark master of realpolitik, Rupert Murdoch, who had become uncharacteristically smitten with the popular candidate. Murdoch had sought the meeting to impart a piece of advice: Knowing every President since Kennedy, what Murdoch had come to understand about American politics, he said, was how little time there was to get anything accomplished. In effect, said Murdoch to Obama, whatever a president does in his first 18 months in office is his legislative legacy.
I suppose he thought he could, with grim determination, rally people behind this thick, opaque, and long-term stuff. He imagined himself to be Rooseveltnot understanding that FDRs ambition was packaged in the greatest charm.
This president doesnt make anybody feel good. Hes made America more anxious, weary, and depressed.
Not only is he obviously not having any fun, he rather looks like someone who has chosen to suffer.
We may actually have gotten our soulful liberal legislation, but weve lost the world.

America for the most part have figured out what a vapid empty suit this guy is and is ready to flush this turd in November.
The Decline and Fall of the Kenyan Empire
Ummm, right. Maybe it is because he is a socialist and only a middle of the roader to a Maoist.
I just wish we had a senate race in Michigan this year. With the rising anger we might be able to pick off one of those seats.
Author Wolf is a blithering, uninformed idiot. At this point, the article becomes unworthy of further time.
He is DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE PLANNED
When he says “Don’t Worry everything is on track” we hear one thing, but he means another- he means everythign is on track to destroy capitalism and institute socialism
Last days? I don’t know. But I do feel very strongly that the will of the people now is to give him some opposition. If we do well enough, we can compartmentalize him in that white hut and limit the damage he can cause.
“whatever a president does in his first 18 months in office is his legislative legacy.”
We could wish that the worst is over, but I think we have seen nothing yet.
Bambie was installed to DESTROY America.
I havent had any communication trouble with Obama. I know exactly what he is.
A racist ,Muslim, Socialist, dildo that hates America and is determined to destroy us and make us over into Zimbabwe West
This author would last about 1 day as an estimator.
Do they issue some version of the happy helmet to folks within the DC Beltway that make them eat the dogfood?
The America haters can defend this maoist 24/7 365 and it will not change the truth.
He set out to destroy our economy, our national security, and what was left of our schools.
There is nothing left to nationalize and yet there is hardly a person here who can honestly say he accomplished a single good thing for them.
from the article:
“Whats more, he has, to an astonishing degree, been unable to communicate even the remotest sense of who he is to the nation: a middle-of-the-roader, by any estimation, and yet a majority of the country thinks hes a socialist.
He is not unable to communicate who he is instead he CANNOT communicate who he is. It is obvious to those of us who have read his books his is far from being a middle-if-the-roader. If Obama told the truth of his beliefs and goals media apologists could no longer defend him and tell his opponents they (we) are wrong.
The Cloward-Piven plan was to inflict the maximum amount of damage in the minimum amount of time.
Obama has nationalize industries, socialized health care, destroyed untold numbers of NON-UNION jobs, and quadrupled the deficit to the point where exponential numbers are now in control.
He's succeeded at everything he's set out to do. He is ready to move on to Secretary General of the United Nations where he will spearhead the effort to create a global tax that flows to the United Nations.
At that point, the United Nations becomes the de facto world government the totalitarians have been waiting for.
Agreed. Two of the worst slimes in the senate, and they’ll get a pass.
This author doesn't get it and he underestimates the man and the people behind him.
And if chronic golfing, monthly vacations and hobnobbing with the rich and famous isn't enjoying ones self, what is?
A little tale -—
Yesterday I attended a class for Election Judges which was informal and cordial. When we were discussing the procedure for write-in candidates, one person said “could I vote for Mickey Mouse?” and the instructor said yes. That same person then said “Mickey Mouse is in the White House, what happened to Barack Obama. Where did he go?”
Then another person said Sponge-Bob Square Pants is also in the White House.
I was the only Republican in this Baltimore group of about ten people, but no one objected to her comments and there was general laughter!
Huh?...Middle of the roader?...Look at whom Obama has surrounded himself. Look at his friends and associates. None of these guys and gals are “middle of the roaders”. Within 18 months he has usurped large swaths of the economy.
Only thoroughly marinated, indoctrinated, and anointed ruling elitist ( AKA: Useful Idiot) would “estimate” that Obama is a “middle of the roader”?
He is not just an 'empty suit' he is a MARXIST in an empty suit surrounded by and financed by other MARXISTS.
