There is a turning point in every presidency that people point back to and say, you know, nothing was ever the same after that. Sometimes it is the point where presidents go on to greatness. Sometimes, it is when a presidency unravels.
For Jimmy Carter, it was when a group of students seized the American Embassy and took more than 100 American diplomats hostage in November 1979. Carter could do nothing right after that. His attempt to rescue the hostages was a pathetic, feeble failure. During the oil crisis Carter went around the White House in a cardigan sweater turning down the thermostat and turning out the lights, while the American people endured gas rationing and long lines at the pumps because some third-rate petro powers decided to punish us.

Obama is hiding, talking climate change.
It might be a stretch to suggest he’s bing blackmailed by the Russians. It could be that the rest of the world is smarter than he gives them credit for, and understands that he is dishonest and incompetent (at best).
I don’t think the Russkies have to blackmail him, although that’s their M.O. I think 0bama is just a craven narcissistic coward. An empty suit. A puppet who thinks he’s the puppet master. Putin is humiliating 0bama for one simple reason.
Because he can.
Yea, but with the current crop of politicians in DC, his hiding will cost us trillions and punish the USA for years.
“Carter went around the White House in a cardigan sweater turning down the thermostat”
0bama keeps it at 78.
I do not think Obama is calling any of the shots. I think his job is to stand and read what is on the prompter. And for that... he and his family get to live “the dream”..... He is nothing more than a figurehead.
I thought it was bad graduating into JimmahLand, and it was, especially in farm country.
But we've got nothing on this generation. And besides, for us, along came Reagan and up, up and away we went!
This time, we got round two. "And if you thought the first was bad..."
Obama jets around the world treating himself like the Sun King on the taxpayer dime.
I agree 100% with your “nothing more than a figurehead’ comment. He nor his handlers care about a “turning point”. They also don’t care about reputation or legacy. Get the job done of eliminating freedom and liberty and everything else will fall into place.
Well said, libstripper. Personally, I have suspected that the Snowden incident was by design. From my understanding, Snowden did vote for Zero, and Zero does have an obvious disdain for the US. It’s seems to me this is what Zero wants: A weakened, humiliated US in par (supposedly) with the rest of the world.
I think he should enlist Aunt Esther to go kick Putin’s ass. That’ll show him!
A top con has real contempt for a punk because he knows the punk’ a punk. Same for Putin & Obama.
If every coal-fired power plant owner announced they are shutting it down on Monday. THAT would be a turning point for his Presidency.
He was just the candidate they could sell. Part black, part white, christian, muslim, etc... all rolled into one empty suit. And he reads off a prompter well. That’s all he does good that I’ve ever seen. He has no basketball game.... he is lousy at golf (despite playing all the time). He’s not smart. He’s a nothing, but he was smart enough to accept the deal. He and MOOshel get to travel the world and live first class for 8 years.... and all he has to do is what he’s told to do.
100% agree with your assessment. He’s definitely some organization’s figurehead doing as he is told to do period. An enemy organization that is international I believe. Unknown to us at this time. We can speculate all we want, but we don’t know who.
When we find out we better start the military tribunals, ‘cause this is an act of war against this sovereign Nation.
If he is being controlled from outside then snowden has the answers
