Both at Home and Abroad, Obama’s Presidency is Floundering
Town Hall ^ | Apr 19, 2014 | Donald Lambro

Posted on 04/20/2014 8:40:44 AM PDT by Cheerio

WASHINGTON -- Barack Obama is getting a number of critical report cards on his foreign and domestic policies lately.

Here at home, Janet Yellen, in her first monetary policy address as the head of the Federal Reserve Board, said the labor markets were still weak, and that it will likely take two years or more before the U.S. fully recovers from its recession. Ouch.

If Yellen's forecast proves right, this means it will have taken Obama's administration nearly eight years to lift our economy out of its long and painful lethargy.

How many more years can seniors survive living off ZERO percent interest rates? I know this is part of his plan for attacking those more fortunate enough to invest and plan for their retirement and redistributing. I guess it is the price we all have to pay for his Marxist wealth redistribution schemes that the RATS have had for a 100 years. I for one am getting a little tired of food and fuel prices going up and up and no income coming in and being lied to daily by the WH clown about how great things are in HIS AMERICA.

From my perspective with regard to the analogy, one has to have something that keeps them afloat in the first place in order to ‘flounder’.

This never was the case. It was/is always a case of a media and political apparatus that tries to make the country believe that screen door on the Obama submarine is viable. It isn’t, and never was.

Maybe Obama (The Big Choomer) should chill out; just smoke some more dope, do a little more blow.....

Why get upset over a few million unhappy people?

Or a few hundred million for that matter.

Or even one guy named Putin?

Why is Obamanomics failure even a surprise?

President Zero could not even run a hot dog stand at profit.
He has never run anything in the real world. His entire life experience is college professor, community organizer for Acorn and politician.

Americans are really dumbed down to elect such a moron.

I dunno, though I did see some other examples of white Flounder while searching for the pic I used.

I suspect that there are local variations in the Flounder coloring based on the color of the bottom where they live. Natural selection and all.

That is the real crux of the problem.

One day, one way or another, the Obamas will be out of the White House.

But the idiots who voted Barack into the presidency (twice) will still be out there in all their idiocy.

And they will still be doing stupid, destructive things, like voting for people like Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Hillary.

And worst of all - they will still be breeding and raising another generation that they will teach to be idiots.

I believe it was a Czech journalist that stated America can survive Obama but it may not survive the people who put him in office.

Obama will keep pulling the levers of power and the media will continue to shill for him until the final moment of his Presidency.

01/01/2017 will mark the very moment when the bills will come due. The Republican President taking office at that time will immediately become responsible for all the damage done during the Obama years.

There will be no honeymoon...
