Barack Obama’s disastrous first 1,000 days
The Telegraph ^ | 10/18/2011 | Nile Gardiner

Posted on 10/18/2011 12:17:47 PM PDT by mojito

If recent polls are any indication, it is doubtful that President Obama will enjoy another 1,000 days in the White House. And looking at his track record over the course of his first 33 months in office, it is not hard to see why. It is hard to think of a presidency in modern times that has done more to damage the United States both at home and abroad than the current one, with the possible exception of Jimmy Carter’s. Like his Democratic predecessor in the 1970’s, Barack Obama has left the world’s dominant superpower on its knees, with faith in US leadership now being questioned across the globe.

Since taking office in January 2009, President Obama has ushered in a period of relentless economic decline for the United States. His administration has added $4.2 trillion to the national debt (now standing at $14.9 trillion), lost 2.2 million jobs, introduced a vastly expensive health-care albatross, and spent nearly $800 billion on a failed stimulus package. At the same time, house prices across the country have tumbled at an unprecedented rate, consumer confidence has plummeted, and millions more Americans are now dependent upon food stamps. International confidence in the US economy has fallen to its lowest levels in decades, with credit agency Standard and Poor’s downgrading of America’s AAA credit rating for the first time in 70 years in August this year.

I can. You call it total melt down of our economy. You call it 3d world nation status. Imagine us being like Eastern Europe, the people of Africa. That will be us next.

“If we can’t defeat Baraq, we deserve him.”

That, unfortunately, is the cold, hard truth.

***Ultimately, the world needs a powerful United States that is a beacon of hope to the world, rather than a basket case of failed liberal policies.***

Churchill & Thatcher would approve;(

Sad that republicans have been sending their children to colleges to be brain washed for many decades..

Republicans have literally done nothing to combat the leftist ownership of academia for at least 30 years..

Still this continuing..

NOTE TO THOSE WHO SUPPORT RINOs (out of a fear of losing (gasp!) an election and the world coming apart).

1,000 days of a communist in the White House and the nation is sick to death of him, ready to repeal everything he ever signed, and ready to vote out anyone in Congress who vaguely reminds them of his policies.

The founding fathers set up a free and prosperous nation with myriad governmental checks and balances - which even someone bent on destroying it sitting in the President’s chair can’t convince enough citizens to give up on their freedom so as to allow it to falter.

I’m sure Axlegrease and Plouffe are working hard to get Mitty that nomination.

If we can figure it out, they can too.

Why is it that only the Brit press seems to tell the truth about this President and his Administration? Thank you Mr. Gardiner.

Lemme see now, - - - - ? 4 trillion dollars destroyed, divided by 1,000 miserable days - - - !? This is going to be a really big number!

Maybe I can go down to my nearest Obamaville and see if any of the Obama-Squatters has a fancy calculator that can give me the daily cost of having Spendaholic Obama as the looney in the White House.

Oops, it is getting dark, and I don’t want to get mugged. Better go down there at high Noon, on a sunny day.

Eliminate academic tenure. Tenure review committees impose an ideological filter on candidates. That is the root of the problem.

We’ll be much more on guard this time.

First, we understand it better.

Second, the Soros SOS project has been a failure, and a lot of states swung Republican in 2010.

Third, vote fraud can only swing close elections, and if we can keep this a 2-way race, it won’t be close.

Wisconsin has "photo ID" as of next month. I'm going out on a limb here, I predict that the Badger State will be Rosy Republican Red next November.

Photo ID is wonderful. However...

What about all of the mail-in ballots? Ballots for people who didn’t even know they voted, voted Democrat.

Heard about this after BOs election, and then of course the story got “lost”.

How about the busloads of people carried from down South to Iowa. Carried from precinct to precinct to register and vote in each of them?

We need the voter rolls cleaned. Period.

You need a photo ID to re-register and we need to require a photo ID to vote. Vote on paper ballots that can be double-checked. You should have to color in a little circle.

I saw estimates ranging from 10 to 25% of the vote for BO was fraudulent. Talk about being disenfranchised! Makes me sick.
