The Worst President Ever?
Albany Tribune ^ | May 17, 2013 | Alan Caruba

Posted on 05/18/2013 12:39:55 AM PDT by Ghost of Jesus Gil

In short, Obama has never addressed his duty to govern. He has instead maintained a non-stop process of campaigning and fund-raising. It did not work in 2010 when voters returned power to the Republicans in the House and now he is doing everything he can to regain Democrat control there in 2014.

Once they get the country under a one party system they will not have spend all that time and effort on campaigning and fund raising. Then they can get some real work done.

Perhaps “Chancellor” would be a more appropriate term.

Or резидент.

"Resident" is the proper KGB title for the commander in charge of operations in a foreign country.

You’re right. I dare someone to choose one who was worse.

We’ve never had an evil, America loathing Communist.

FDR, Wilson, LBJ, and Clinton were few notches above this vile man.

Had a chat with an ATT rep today Told me I had a right to my opinion about his company blah blah. I said that was a silly statement as his boss is supporting causes counter to my beliefs using the company’s name and my money.

He blathered on about how well you know he hates war and so our opinions are equal.

I could have said, stay on focus, this is about what the boss of ATT is doing w my money.

Instead, having one statement, as he was now in that emo mode, that no no no I don’t want to discuss this mode, I said there’s where you want to be careful, our involvement in WWII and VN were overseen by dems.

He didn’t like that, I mean, he suddenly didn’t like me, so, we aren’t friends any more. He’s thinking I care.

Obama failed to qualify, thus in my books he was never a legal standing president, he is like the 13th floor in many buildings, they skip a floor.

many years from now I will continue my stance, and I will correct those who thought he was a POTUS, he may sleep in the WH, he may order Marines to be his waiters but he was never a legally qualified POTUS.

There aren’t any libs crying about war that I’ve heard in a long time. Their “boy” is in the White Hut. So what if some kid from middle America gets blown to smithereens in Afghanistan or some other Godforsaken s#ithole of a place? In the big scheme of things that kid makes no damned difference to any lib and besides may be one less future vote against their trash. We lost that battle the minute the punk in the White Hut bowed to the Saudis, renamed the war an overseas contingency operation, and refused to call islamic terrorist trash islamic terrorist trash.

That’s a good one (though I have no objection to the bombings - I know what Japan did in China). The Christian in me says it was wrong, but because we aren’t a Christian nation and I didn’t give the order I sleep well at night.

Certainly they will. Much of that money reaches the pockets of the politicians and his friends.

They line their pockets and maintain their power with that money.

I agree.

He was never President to begin with.

Certainly he occupied the slot, but one day in the future investigations will prove he was there under false pretenses.

The sucker is living large at our expense.
O's endless golf outings/vacays, Mrs O's teeming closets-full of designer dresses, cases w/ diamond jewelry, financing his (gag) legacy, financing her future campaign for elective office, etc.

Here's the classic Ponzi scheme---Obama sweet talks the Dem suckers into giving him more and more money for "a worthy cause"---to his "non- profit" political organization---then spends it all on himself.

RICH-HATERS IN THE WH The Ohaha's say they hate the rich---but the O's know how to spend OPM. The family blew $1.4B on travel and entertainment for themselves and their numerous personal staffs last year: that's 2000 times more than what the entire British Royal Family cost the UK ($57.8M)----$27 million bucks a week is only the tip of the iceberg:

White House sources claim Michelle (with a staff of 24) went through $10M of taxpayer money last year on just her own private trips and shopping sprees, with one calling the First Lady's self-indulgent spending orgy -including extravagant massages, top-shelf booze, and five-star hotels 'disgusting'.

NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for the Ohaha's living in the White House: $1.4 billion per year: Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($ 277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the president’s dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million).

==========================================

$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House — just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha.

Annually, Ohaha vacations cost $20 million (the low estimate for Ohaha's Hawaii vacay was $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); the first family’s yearly health-care costs are $7 million; more than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transportation costs were a staggering $346 million last year.

The O' kids were flying aroound to the Bahamas and Sun Valley.....while US kids were shut out of the WH supposedly due to sequestration Secret Service cutbacks. The O's galivanting teen daughter was spotted in NYC last week---with girlfriends---dining at the pricey Buddakan, scoffing up rock shrimp, edamame dumplings, short ribs, lobster fried rice........replete w/ five Secret Service guards dining nearby, while students her age were denied access to the people's house.

====================================

LEARNING TOUR? M/M O pictured w/ partly-shrunken Ivory Coast official 2009.

Malibu home of Ivory Coast dictator's son.

The oil-rich Ivory Coast has one of the worst human rights records in Africa whose rulers are accused of funneling millions of public monies into their own pockets. But now it looks like the son of the dictator---- Teodoro---whose world— comprised yachts, Bugattis, and Michael Jackson memorabilia—could come crashing down, according to Foreign Policy (via Curbed).

Foreign Policy's Ken Silverstein reported that after a four-year investigation into alleged extortion and laundering of $100 million in the US and "theft of public funds, or other corrupt conduct" back at home, the Justice Department has filed notice of a lawsuit involving the possible seizure of Tedoro's California mansion, and other assets.

And French investigators just seized millions of dollars' worth of his sports cars, while the Spanish government is investigating the entire Obiang clan. Teodoro reportedly hasn't spent much time stateside recently, in part thanks to various legal actions against him.

Just a peek inside the insane world of Teodoro---he first came to the U.S. to attend Pepperdine University in Malibu. While tuition cost just $3,400, he managed to blow through $50,000 in the first five months before dropping out. Source: Business insier--LA Weekly.

Teodoro is listed as the owner of this $35 million mansion on the Malibu coast, which he paid for in cash. It was the most expensive home sold in California in 2006, and has a tennis court, swimming pool and 4-hole golf course.

Teodoro's on the government payroll as "minister of agriculture and forestry," and supposedly makes just $5,000 per month. But his Malibu home contains $60,000 worth of rugs, a $58,000 home theater and a $1,734 pair of wine glasses.

==============================================

Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles sat a DNC fund-raiser last Sept, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff was priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com

Concur.. I’ve got two bumper stickers: WORST President ever and Obama: Why stupid people shouldn’t vote. They sit on the back of my 2008 F-250 which has a 6” lift on 37” tires. As soon as I see an Obama/Biden sticker on a car (or the COEXIST idiots) I make sure I get in front of them since the stickers are basically windshield height and in their face.

Obama may be the worst President ever, but what is striking to me is how many bad ones we have had since 1960, which coincides with the expansion of the franchise and the beginning of television.

I mean, even here there are many people (sometimes even me!) who think that being a US Senator for five minutes (Cruz, Rubio) constitutes “qualifications” to be elected President.

Between 1788 and 2008, only two serving US Senators were elected President - and for damned good reasons. Being a bullshit artist and fixer are two things which should DISQUALIFY someone from the office.

All of a sudden, being a US Senator has become a prime occupation for wannabes. This is a sign of terminal deterioration in our republican institutions.

Buchanan was worse only in the sense that the first Civil War started on his watch and he bungled the start of that war. Obama has over three years to top that, and he has the talent needed to trigger another civil war easily.

FDR and LBJ probably did more long-term damage to the country, but I don't believe that either man hated America.

Clinton may have hated America, but not as much as Obama, and he didn't do as much damage as Obama.

Obama is the first president who actually wants to bring the country down. And he is an outright Marxist.

The CONTINUANCE of this idiot in office is reflective of “reverse discrimination come home to roost.

He is a menace, a national insult and a total disgrace.

He should drag his party down to massive defeat in the 2014 mid-terms and be ignored by GOP Congress as an historical irrelevance while they repair the damage he and his idiot predecessor wrought on our economy and prestige internationally not to mention our constitution.

But it won’t happen as they have been castrated by political correctness, reverse discrimination and racialist philosophies.
