Okay... now take every hedged item, every emotional item, every superlative item, every unquantifiable item out of this list... you might have two left.

i.e. How does one quantify #3? Is there some scale they keep to quantify anti-American tensions around the world?

How does one quantify #5? What has he done except say that he was doing it?

How does one quantify #6?

You could probably ask this question on every single list item. This is bodewash.

First President to fly his dog on a separate airplane at taxpayer expense with the $102,000 ‘annual’ dog handler.

Since Muslims consider dogs as unclean animals, that is one reason why I think he is a Muslim.

“How does one quantify #3? Is there some scale they keep to quantify anti-American tensions around the world?”

The cold-blooded murder of four US servicemen by muslim savages in Afghanistan — two immediately following his apology which he claims, of course, lowered anti-American tensions. I would say that is a quantifiable fail on this list.

Yes, but the list item I was referencing was an attempt at a positive for Obama. You’re listing a negative.
