He is an immature 48 year old that is too taken with himself to be any kind of leader. America should never elect one in their 40’s....Too self a sorbed to look out for anyone else. But they were looking for an American Idol, black, etc.

Right after Obama’s election, many of us were exclaiming WE ARE SO SCREWED.

This Greenfield article provides the examples and analytical underpinnings for the correctness of that sentiment.

It has been said that America will survive Obama, he'll be a one termer nothing more. What is of greater concern in America's survival is the electorate that voted for Obama. An electorate that votes for a candidate with no credentials whatsoever for the job of president but is endorsed by a talk show host Oprah Winfry. A candidate who is endorsed by Hollywood celebrities, a candidate who is aided mightily by the liberals that are pervasive in the mainstream media. America is in a downward spiral from which it won't recover.

That's a great line!

That is very true! Palin would eat his lunch in a debate.


Did I miss something since the last time Palin spoke to Couric? She still needs a lot of work before she could eat anyone’s lunch much less get the better of them in a meaningful debate about real issues. Now General Petraeus or Ambassador Bolton or Chris Christy (if he gets his head straight about illegals and guns) should get a chance. Let’s not forget Palin supported McCain! Enough said.

“The guy nailed it and it should scare the crap out of every American who reads the article.”

Indeed. Any world actor out there who has any ambitious plans that require a weak American reaction has two years to get it in motion. 2011 and 2012 WILL NOT be business as usual for America.

On the enemy side, the growing aggressiveness of China, North Korea, Iran, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda can all be attributed to the global consensus that no one is at home in the White House.

This is one of the best summary statements of Obozo's 'Presidency' that I have read.

That's ok,,, the true KING of KINGS of this world, in whom this world and all creation belongs to is coming soon and will set up his kingdom right here on Earth and there is nothing that no man, or that mankind can do about it... Jesus Christ is the KING OF KINGS and the LORD OF LORDS ! and every knee shall bow and confess that Jesus Christ is LORD of ALL !

What a great post! Also 100% true and soon to happen. I am looking forward to the Rapture and a front row seat for the Tribulation and Glorious Return.

I’m not certain that Obama’s goal is even to be “liked.” This is one President who would fit into the African leader mold. He wants things to be named after him, he wants power, he wants to take from those who work and give to those who don’t. He doesn’t care if he is “liked” by those who don’t blindly agree with him. His goal is more to be obeyed and that fact that he really isn’t overly bright and, if he were to run the world, we would have a world meltdown, doesn’t concern him in the least. As far as Obama is concerned, it is ALL about him and anyone who doesn’t see things his way is obviously stupid and dangerous (in his immature mind). Obama isn’t merely naive with a need to be loved - he is dangerous and has a “need to rule” without anyone actually being allowed the freedom to oppose him.

Dead on. 0bama’s foreign policy is akin to that of Neville Chamberlain or Jimmy Carter- complete and total failure.

0bama is lost without a teleprompter. He has a record now, he didn’t in the 2008 pre-election debates.

Palin has been dead on in her op-ed pieces and she has a firm grasp of energy issues, plus a common sense approach to foriegn policy issues. Yeah, she could eat his lunch. So could you, me or any one of thousands of FReepers. The pretend magic doesn’t work any more.

“WE know it’s true but until the rest of the American electorate knows it’s true (and acts on it at the polling place) it won’t make much difference, sad to say.”

I’d say electing 650 patriots to state legislatures and taking over 30 states is a good start.

This ominous development is as plain as day yet the MSM will never comment on it. They will treat each of the gathering crisies as if they are all unique unrelated problems.

“So 0bambi accomplished his grand design on the American people.”

You are so right, this is NOT “incompetence”, this is all deliberate to undermine the US from the inside.

Exactly!

This is a superb editorial. Thanks for posting it, 2ndDiv.

Rather than accept your wholly uninformed and snarky comment, I spent 12 seconds in a search, and found THIS

AFTER you've read Mrs. Palin's policy stances, perhaps you *MIGHT* be able to form an adult opinion, rather than spout the MSM party line about how uninformed she "seems".

Note my tagline. All these news shows and organizations are falling to pieces in ratings and it’s all grassroots. that is how the Tea Party had so much success. Obama has his media and entertainment cheerleaders, but they are worthless ornaaments now, the same value as an Oscar and in some cases, a knighthood. Worth nothing since they go to worthless people, plus getting them isn’t all that difficult.

In any sane country, McCain would have been a guaranteed choice since his war record, his long, long service to the country’s govenrment, and irrespective of his idiocy, he would have been elected and we would still have the respect of the world’s leaders. People who survive torture tend to have that, plus he’s a fully established war veteran. All this and more would have been more than enough.

Instead, because of a bucnh of racist threats of riots, Obama gets elected.

I’m more than sure that the Chinese thought our country had gone insane and celebrated, the Russians were laughing, the Iranians celebrating, in the meantime all of them practiced their smiling to avoid smirking when they would first meet him.

I’m more than sure that many thought that Obama would be an amusement, but he’s likely now going ot start trying to run the world since he can’t even run his own country.
