Skip to comments.The Obama Administration Looks To Be Close To A Breakdown
Posted on 04/20/2012 9:58:01 PM PDT by hope
Administration meltdowns are hardly novel. In almost every presidency there comes a moment when sheer chaos takes hold, whether self-induced or as a result of an outside crisis.
Vietnam had effectively destroyed Lyndon Johnson by 1967. Watergate unraveled the Richard Nixon administration, as the disgraced president resigned in the face of certain impeachment.
Gerald Ford could not whip inflation and was not re-elected. One-termer Jimmy Carter was undone by the Iranian hostage crisis and skyrocketing oil prices.
For a time, it seemed that Ronald Reagan's second term might not survive the Iran-Contra scandal. George H.W. Bush could not be re-elected after he broke his promise not to raise taxes and Ross Perot entered the 1992 race.
The popular Bill Clinton was impeached over the Monica Lewinsky affair and limped out of office tainted. The insurgency in Iraq and fallout from Hurricane Katrina crashed for good the once-high poll ratings of George W. Bush.

We’ve been hoping for this meltdown for awhile- Obama has people propping his elbows and carrying him over the bumps.
He is a wraith.
He’s not American.
He is an impostor. The stress is significant, and the cracks are evident. It is not the power of God that carries him forward.
Wow!! I read the entire Article. EXCELLENT!!! That short piece of journalism could be the GOP Playbook for 2012. It needs to go viral.
I’m more worried about America heading to a breakdown.
I don’t give a flying **** what happens to this “administration” or anyone in it.
So what is this, Obama’s 19th nervous breakdown?
“Im more worried about America heading to a breakdown.”
Even if Obumbo gets the boot, it is only one step in
the rescue of America from a brain dead legal and illegal citizenry.
As I have stated on many post, The Communist now control Education, k- Grad school, and the media.
Yes, they do, and they are making drones of the next generations.
There needs to be mass treason trials.
Indonesian Go Home!
Must have put it over the top.
If the opposition gets the country laughing at Obama he won’t be able to take it.
“Born with a Golden Retriever in my mouth too?”
Check Rush Limbaugh - great research staff
Check Glen Beck - 95% of his wild predictions are coming true
Many of Obama’s Secret Service agents look like Farrakan’s “FRUIT(S) OF ISLAM” - making America very proud in Columbia
#1 - Ignore SNOPES.com - A scam - as is FACTCHECK.com (FACTCHECK is tied to “Weather Underground” member/bomber Bill Ayers in Chicago)
- It is run by a radical democrat couple and on any sticky political issue or topic SNOPES either refuses to investigate and/or even post or acknowledge it - SNOPES - like 99.9% of the urban and DC Beltway media - is a branch of the DNC
#2 - Obama refused to consult with Congress on Libya as is required since Viet Nam - Claimed he was only acting together with NATO and/or the UN - Sent in jet fighters and bombers as “backup” for France and other Euro countries that depended on Libya and Kernel K-Daffy for much of the oil
#3 - Obama shut down Gulf oil rigs and permits and has defied a Federal Judge’s order to open Gulf rig activity and exploration - Yet Cuba is working with China to put oil rigs in the Gulf very close to the Florida Keys
#4 - Obama gave billions to Brazil (George Soros and China are involved) and promised to buy much of Brazil’s oil for the US to use - while banning exploration, test drilling, and operations here in Alaska, off Florida, off California, on government land in the US - Production in US is “up” only on private property in the USA - while Obama and his surrogates and media (esp. MSNBC and CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC) spew the baloney that “under Obama oil production is “UP” - Actual oil consumption in the US is “DOWN”
#5 - The US Supreme Court recently kicked Obama’s appointed EPA Commies aside on a case regarding a couple in Idaho that for over 5 years has been threatened with MASSIVE DAILY FINES and ORDERS as they attempted to prepare their locally approved property to build a new home for themselves
#6 - Obama says the US Constitution is NEGATIVE to the Federal government and prevents the FEDS and President from saying and enforcing what they want to do -
The US Constitution spells out which Rights are those of The Citizens and The States
Recently Obama claimed that Congress was “really not in session” (in his opinion)
#7 - The “DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT” - passed by Congress and signed by Bill Clinton - I believe
Obama publicly stated DOMA is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and his Attorney General Eric Holder agrees - and they refuse to enforce it!
#8 - Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wants to “AMMEND” the 1st Ammendment to limit FREE SPEECH
“Congress Shall Make No Law......”
#9 - Obama & AG Holder designed and set up “Fast & Furious” to smuggle firearms into Mexico (hundreds of Mexicans have ben murdered as a result) - and several Border Patrol agents have been attacked by Mex drug gangs in the US - and one was killed
US agents in Mexico have also been attacked and killed
The illegal purpose of “Fast & Furious” was - and is - to “Fly under the (legal) radar” as Obama told Sarah Brady - and totally destroy the 2nd Ammendment and the Right of US Citizens TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS (not to go hunting and target shooting) - King George of England. etc. being an early problemo for early Colonists of America
Obama and AG Holder blame “Fast and Furious” on President GW Bush’s “Wide Receiver” tracking program that the ATF and BP and FBI were involved in -
“Fast and Furious” tracked NOTHING - Firearms Dealers in the US were told to illegally sell firearms to Mexican drug cartel for illegal transportation to Mexico
Who paid for those FIREARMS?
The BATF and FBI gave US Taxpayer’s cash to the firearms dealers
#10 - Like Food Stamps (now called “SNAP”) and Obamacare - Obama is about CONTROL -
“FREE” STUFF to BUY VOTES
To “RATION” food and healthcare
#11 - Executive Orders - XOs - Obama and his Chi-Town Thugs operate with Congress -
#12 - Check out “Law of the Sea Treaty”
International UN control within a country of domestic rivers, lakes - and “alleged” WETLANDS (morning dew?) - The EPA and HLS working with the UN
#13 - Obama’s Big Dream:
An international INCOME and SALES TAX by the UN on all countries
I will post this on http://FreeRepublic.com - on several threads - others can comment - refute, add, debate, discuss -
I cannot pretend to know all the nasty schemes and scams that Obama and his Radical Socialists in the DNC, DSA, and CPUSA have been planning for many decades - and are now illegally implementing
No matter what happens, everyone should study up on international living, and be knowledgeable on where to go, and how to get there.
Amen to that. We trade Obama for Romney, and we get more of the same. No one wants to confront the real problems. They all want to keep promising stuff to voters, stuff which we cannot afford.
Another excuse for Zer0 from the MSM.
For me that would include the entire bicameral Congress, including the functional eunuchs GOP.
Back on Day one Rush said that he hopes Obama fails. Looks like his wish came true.
I’d welcome seeing him dragged out of the office in a straitjacket.
IBD is usually real good, but sometimes they need to get a grip. Iran-Contra was universally viewed by the public (people with a measurable IQ, at least) as a partisan clown convention. Reagan's people authorized the sale of defective plane parts to Iraq in order to get money to fund communist-fighting rebels - - whoop-de-doo. (It was, of course, the part about funding the people who were fighting the communists that really made the rats poop their diapers.)
0bama`s busily locking down the special interest groups by the day:
1. Capture the women`s vote with bogus “Republicans hate women” narrative and push for continued tax $ funded abortion and contraception...CHECK
2. Shore up hispanic vote with promises of amnesty and “paths” (read: fast-track) to citizenship in second term... CHECK
3. Keep enviro-whackos excited by doubling down with tax $ on failed “green” industries...CHECK
4. Get those young folk fired up for him again with promises of cheap student loans (if those annoying Repubs would just get out of the way)...CHECK
5. Keep the black vote at 99.9% by sending “Attorney General” Holder to declare solidarity with Al Sharpton over the Trayvon Martin matter...CHECK
I`m already doing that...
Two online sites, as previously posted:
Their concentration is on Central and South America.
There are probably many other sites, but since I have been
offshore since 2004, I am not in much need for the information.
Baring a disaster, I am now in my final location.
BTW, are you the guy living in the Phillippines?
“BTW, are you the guy living in the Phillippines?”
Yes, this is my final location, after some years in central Europe.
I am on the island of Cebu, listed by Travel and Leisure Magazine, as the third best island in all of Asia.
150 years ago, we had a President from Illinois who fought a war to end slavery.
Today we have a President from Illinois who is fighting a war to make us all slaves.
Going down should not be the end I would like to see prosecutions, convictions and jail time for many.
VDH is always worth reading.
“No matter what happens, everyone should study up on international living, and be knowledgeable on where to go, and how to get there.”
If America gets too small for me and Someone Else, then Someone Else is going to have some troubles.
Yeah yeah yeah, I know, tough talk.
Lame Duck! Lame Duck!
There used to be a website that listed everything he has done to destroy the country and shred the Constitution but I cannot find it now. My memory disappoints me these days.
I appreciate your post.
"Limped out of office"?
If there was no XXII Amendment, Bill Clinton would still be President.
Id welcome seeing him dragged out of the office in
a straitjacket handcuffs
Though VDH is spot on as normal...
With the MSM not only carrying Obama water daily as well as covering up virtually every negative aspect of his administration....
Most Americans are pretty clueless...on how bad this imposter fraud really is...
The only thing I like about Romney is he goes negative without a flinch and does it well...against his GOP opponents...
Obama pretty much has given Romney years of political fodder to use against him....we will know if he is not serious to defeat Obama if he goes soft....
I’m sure the GOP establishment is already telling Romney to act like a gentleman instead of going to the mattresses (Godfather reference)
The GOP in DC don’t realize the left is at full scale war against them and the country...
I wonder if they even know how to go to war...
Those Democrat intellects got to be wondering what Axelrod is doing twitter gossiping of the Romney family vacation when he’s supposed to be running the campaign.
Lincoln didn’t end slavery at all...
He actually sold every American into “slavery”...
Learn the truth about the 14th amendment...
This jackwagon is going down and even Axelhead can’t come up with enough lies, distortions, diversions, and smears to save him in the election Even with a pathetic candidate like Romney, Zero is a dead man walking and he knows it.
Though this president is indeed as described and further he is a spoiled-brat biological-ideological issue of 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radicals (also spoiled brats) who until becoming president had never had "underlings" say "No". The "underlings" saying "No" are Republican members of the Congress.
He has one huge advantage over all other presidents:
He can scream "RACIST!".
And when it comes to race relations he's got the MSM NBC-style, cherry-bomb journalism supporting him with its motto, If at first it don't seethe try,try anything until it does seethe.
Thanks for the info all in one location!
IMHO Romney at least has a love of Country.
The way the Romney team took Romney's putting his dog on the roof of the car for the family drive to Canada off the obama campaign's table by countering with the obama eats puppies page from obama's Ayers written bio shows a combative flair we've not seen from the rinos against other progressives.
One of the comments from The Hill story:
AddisonDewitt 7 hours ago
Obama has used excuses to explain the extreme difficulties he has faced as our nation’s chief executive. But what, then, really, is his doing????? I will attempt to answer that question.
*After your $1 trillion Stimulus, did not turn the economy around, nor drop the unemployment rate as you claimed, the current state of the economy belongs to you.
*Your screwed up plans such as the cash for clunkers, the mortgage rescue plan that have failed to provide the relief you claimed they would give belongs to you.
*Your bailouts of the automobile industry, with taxpayer money, getting the US involved in government ownership, then selling its shares at a huge loss belongs to you.
*The fact that Chryslers Volt, the hybrid electric-electric car produced with the help of the Stimulus money costs $100,000 and there was so little demand for the car, it had to stop production belongs to you, Mr. President.
*The fact that in bailing out the auto industry, you made sure the pensions and benefits of the unions were taken care of first before the private bondholders as is legal practice and then demonized them as greedy belongs to you.
*Because of your green energy , anti-oil, gas, coal policies that have lead to high fuel prices, this belong to you.
*The shutdown of drilling in the Gulf and the fact that some of those drilling platforms have left the Gulf belongs to you.
*The slow permitting process for resuming drilling in the Gulf despite the rising cost of oil belongs to you.
*The blockage by your administration of the Keystone Pipeline from the tar sands of Canada into the US belongs to you.
*The money sent to Brazil to help them drill off their coast in waters deeper than the Gulf belongs to you.
*Your demand that Congress pass Cap & Trade legislation that would drastically increase energy prices for everyone here; which would require industry to buy carbon credits to offset pollution; all in the name of global warming belongs to you.
*Despite the fact that China and India will be burning coal and other carbon based fuels, since you did not get your way on Cap & Trade, you are using the EPA to put those ideas into executive regulations in an attempt to end run Congress belongs to you.
*While other countries tap their own resources, yet because of environmental restrictions, we can not and therefore depend upon imports to buy them belongs to you.
*The tapping of the Strategic National Petroleum Reserve, supposedly saved for national emergencies, but is now being used for reelection purposes, belongs to you.
*Currently the US has increased domestic production of oil and lowered imports, however, such increases are on private lands not public lands, where it has actually decreased belongs to you, Mr. President. Your taking credit for these things is an example of just how truthful you are
*The huge official unemployment numbers, of 8.2% belongs to you.
*The increased number of people on food stamps belongs to you.
*The lack of business investment because of your anti-business attitude and regulations belongs to you.
*The decline in housing values belongs to you.
*The fact that today the government spends 4.1 billion a day compared to Bush and the Republicans, 1.5 billion, this higher spending level belongs to you.
*The higher federal debt, its continued rise ($1 trillion addition of the Stimulus alone) belongs to you.
*The federal debt, while it increased under Bush by $4.9 trillion, in eight years, it has increased $4 trillion in 2 1/2 years belongs to you.
*The debt crisis, where you have offered no plan, and still offer no serious debt reduction ideas, the threatened default belongs to you.
*The fanatical desire to tax the evil rich and demand they pay their fair share, though they already bear much of the tax burden, your continued comments that stimulate class warfare belong to you.
*During the debate over lifting the national debt limit, your threat to push Granny off a cliff by making threats about checks being suspended or delayed belongs to you.
*The regulations, more still coming down the pipe, that restrict business belongs to you.
*The endemic growth of the economy belongs to you.
This two, Sir, must stand alone.
*The decline in the value of the dollar due to the Feds quantitative easing, that is fueling the rise in prices of food, gasoline belongs to you.
The coming hyperinflation, particularly if there is are other rounds of quantitative easing, belongs to you. Isnt it a good thing, Mr. President, that the common folk have not made the connection between these policies and a declining dollar. Your policies, instead of giving everyone a tax cut are, in fact, giving everyone a wage cut.
*The corrupting influence of George Soros in US policy, which you have allowed, belongs to you.
*The creation of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform bill, the Consumer Protection Agency that will be under the FED and its budget will not be subject to review or cuts by Congress making its independent and with vast rule-making authority in consumer finance belongs to you.
*The unions trying to force card check on industry and deny workers a voice in whether they want to belong to a union or not, belongs to you.
*The fact that you said yours would be the most transparent of administrations, that it would be a break from Bush practices , that in truth, was a total deception belongs to you.
*The fact that bills such as ObamaCare & the Stimulus were rushed through Congress where its members had the time to read through over 1000 pages belongs to you.
*The fact that under your ObamaCare mandate people must buy insurance or face a fine eliminating a persons right of choice belongs to you.
*Despite your claims, the Congressional Budget Office determined that ObamaCare will cost double your estimate, possibly more. This is your baby, Mr. President.
*You claimed ObamaCare would reduce the cost of insurance programs currently offered; that it will would not lead to rationing of health care to the disadvantage of the elderly; that people could can keep their current health insurance. Private insurance plans have gone up, rationing is already under discussion and people may not have that option of keeping their existing policies, as thirty percent of employers plan to drop their employees health coverage due to this law. All of these misrepresentations and lies belongs to you.
*The socialist takeover of one-sixth of the economy by way of ObamaCare and the coming destruction of private health insurers belongs to you.
*The coming decline in the number of doctors administering to the public due to ObamaCare belongs to you.
*With the enactment of ObamaCare, your Department of Health and Human Services demanded that religious institutions pay for birth control and abortion drugs coverage for their employees. By doing this, this administration is demanding that the church and its membership bow to Caesar, despite the teachings of their church, which consider such services as an abomination. This attack on religion belongs to you.
*The demonizing of your enemies, be they corporations, investors, political opponents, or even the Supreme Court and Congress to achieve your own political objectives belongs to you.
*The use of Czars who do not answer to Congress, but only to you; that they exercise such power such as Cass Sunstein, your Regulatory Czar, belongs to you.
*The appointment of Van Jones, a self-proclaimed Communist and 9-11 truthers as Green Czar, belongs to you.
*The appointment of Jeff Immelt, CEO of General Electric to your Jobs Council to find ways to lower the high levels of unemployment is most interesting. Rather than create opportunities here, he directed his GE to invest $2 billion in China, transferring an entire manufacturing division and its jobs out of this country. Nor did you see this action by your Job Czar as hypocritical. While you has been demonizing the evil rich and the need for them to pay their fair share, GE made over $51 billion in the United States, yet paid no income tax in 2010. Dont tell, evil George made you do it again.
*Increased racial tensions, remember the Beer Summit and your stupid remark, belongs to you.
*Your failure to speak out against inflammatory rhetoric of Reverend Sharpton after the death of Trayvon Martin and the bounty put on the head of his alleged shooter by the New Black Panther Party displays a lack of leadership that is troubling. I suppose the ghost of Bush still haunts you.
*For support of the building of a mosque at Ground Zero in New York, yet said nothing about the rebuilding of the Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas destroyed when the World Trade Center came down, this insensitivity belongs to you. It will be rebuilt without your help, Mr. President.
*The fact that no one can criticize you despite your Leftist agenda without being called a racist belongs to you.
*The continued funding of the criminal enterprise called ACORN belongs to you.
*The demonization and threat to shut down or control Fox News and Talk Radio, the dream of diversity czar at the FCC, Mark Lloyd, belongs to you.
*The end of the manned space program and the refusal to extend the life of the space shuttle until such time as there is a replacement vehicle; the sad fact is that American astronauts have to bum rides to the international space station with the Russians; the dangerous surrender of space to the Russians and the Chinese, without a plan to counter their actions in space, belongs to you.
*The new mission of NASA to make Muslims feel good about their past scientific achievements belongs to you.
*Your lack of vision to use the space program to stimulate the economy and the resulting unemployment in Florida, Texas and elsewhere, due to your end of the Space Shuttle program, which will only add SKILLED workers to the unemployment lines or cause them to work for Russian, Japanese, Indian or Chinese space programs belongs to you.
*The creation of a two-tier system of justice, that intentionally does not provide equal protection for all citizens under the law, where your Attorney General offers up the excuse that such unequal enforcement of the law is a means by which the grievances and injustices of the past can be remedied, this policy belongs to you.
Additionally, this department has:
*The attack by the Justice Department on the legitimate right of states, such as Texas and South Carolina, to protect the integrity of the election process by impeding state agencies from removing illegal immigrants, residents who have moved, dead persons, felons from the voter rolls because such action, according to the department, discriminate against minorities, this belongs to you.
*Your administration has impeded the right of states to demand proper identification before allowing someone to vote. Your Justice Department says its discriminatory against the poor and minorities. Does this mean you support unfair elections, Sir?
*Your Justice Department has selectively refused to enforce Congressional laws, such as the Defense of Marriage Act. Didnt know you had that power, Mr. President.
*Heres a good one. You are, once again forcing banks to relax their mortgage underwriting standards and approve loans for persons with poor credit ratings, alleging that such standards were discriminatory toward minorities. This was a primary cause of the Great Recession of 2008, yet youre doing it again. Are you channeling Bush, Sir?
*The failure of the Justice Department to prosecute the Philadelphia Black Panther voter intimidation case belongs to you.
*The Pigford II settlement, funding and payment, where so-called Black farmers were rewarded for false claims that they were discriminated against belongs to you.
*The situation where Arizona was sued by the US government because Arizona was trying to protect their citizens against an illegal invasion belongs to you.
*The immigration crisis, an attempts to end run Congress with stealth amnesty plans and lack of border security belongs to you.
*Guns being sold, in the operation called Fast & Furious, that wind up in the hands of Mexican drug lords, the numerous murders within Mexico, and the murder own border guards points to your policies, Sir. Was there a plan to tie it to a restriction of 2nd Amendment rights for the rest of us??? People are asking questions, Mr. President.
*The fact that countries around the world no longer respect, the US belongs to you.
*The apology tour and the debasement of the US in the eyes of the world belongs to you.
*The fall of Egypt and our 30 year ally, President Mubarak, particularly if the WikiLeak information is true, will most definitely belong to you.
*The possible end of the Egyptian-Israeli 1979 Camp David Peace Treaty belongs to you.
*The reopening of the Gaza border closing with its potential for rearmament such as what has occurred on the border with Lebanon belongs to you.
*The empowerment of the Muslim Brotherhood across the Mideast belongs to you.
*The Libyan war, where you didn’t even consult Congress, belongs to you.
*The failure to secure all of Gaddafis shoulder launched missiles after the Libyan regime was overthrown; he fact that these weapons have made their way into the hands of terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, belongs to you, Sir.
*When, not if, Iran develops nuclear weapons and carries out it threats against Israel and others, because of your appeasement of its leadership, belongs to you.
*When, not if, Iran develops nuclear weapons, the resulting arms race among other Arab states wanting to possess nuclear weapons, such as Saudi Arabia, will belong to you.
*The undermining of the peace process in the Mideast, where you backed negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians based on the 1948 Armistice Lines, causing the Palestinians to demand more in terms of concessions belongs to you.
*The destabilization of Iraq and Afghanistan because you have refused to commit to a winning strategy, rather one of withdrawal is yours, Sir.
*The delay in announcing a surge, but then your immediate announcement for the withdrawal of US forces in Afghanistan, which only gave hope to our enemies, belongs to you, Mr. Commander-in-Chief.
*The restrictions under which the US forces operate Afghanistan, restrictions that puts their lives in danger; their injuries and deaths are yours to live with, Sir.
*The end of dont ask, dont tell and the allowance of gays to serve in the armed force belongs to you.
*Your attempt to close Bushs Gitmo and bring the inmates of that military compound to US soil is your idea.
*Your attempt to bring the terrorists in Gitmo to trial in US courts where they would have the same rights American possess because of due process belongs to you.
*The policies of demoralization of the armed forces belongs to you.
*The unfriendly treatment of allies from Britain to Poland and the Czech Republic belongs to you.
*The appeasement of Iran, Syria, Russia, Venezuela and other dictators belongs to you.
*The unequal Strategic Arms Treaty, where you gave the Russians a veto over a US defensive shield belongs to you.
*The insane policy where you will share with the Russians secrets to the missile defense codes of this country belongs to you.
*The possibility that you will reduce our nuclear force to 300 warheads as a sign to the world that it needs to disarm belongs to you.
In summation after 3+ years of your presidency, the decline of the US both militarily, economically, this is not Bushs fault, or the weather, or a solar eclipse, or the evil Tea Party. All of this was done by you and belongs to you, Mr. President.
THIS IS INDEED A RECORD TO RUN ON. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2871472/posts
Bill Cosby compares Obama to Sisyphus rolling rock up the hill
you meet at certain,
Dismal, dull affairs."
“Here it comes...”
I agree that Lincoln did a lot of unconstitutional acts; however, I’m talking about a political attack ad. That doesn’t have to be 100% factual.
For too long, Conservatives have allowed LIBs and Comms to attack us without repercussions or response. We only have ourselves to blame for the double standard in politics. Why shouldn’t the ultra-liberal media be predominately LIB? They don’t have to work to get stories; just call the DNC. PUBs don’t respond, so no story there.
If we want our republic back, we damn well better start fighting for it. Ridicule them, make a mockery of what they say, respond in kind to their wilder charges, but do something.
It’s time to give them the fight they seem to want so desperately.
Minor detail since both companies got Obamanable bailouts, but the Volt is a GM product, not a Chrysler one.
