Treacherous, incompetent, a tall boob, who once dared advertise himself as a world historical figure of earth shaking importance. The Barack Obama assassination porn purveyors sold the flabby Barack as the great leader too. But we had his number.
By late 2009 most all were in Agreement: Obama Is A Harmful Narcissist. Obama realists always saw Obama as the simpering boy in front of the mirror trying to forget both his parents dumped him as soon as they took a look at him. Obama was the Rodney Dangerfield joke come to life: when he was born the doctor slapped his mother.
As 2014 comes to a close there is universal agreement that Obama is a failure. Once the fanboys and fangirls believed Obama was all he was cranked up to be. But now even his most avid fans can’t help but express “disappointment”:
Will.i.am led the charge of celebrities supporting then-senator Barack Obama on his run for the White House in 2008.
Seven years later, it appears the Black Eyed Peas singer is reconsidering whether his efforts were worth it.
In an interview with Larry King, previewed in a clip shared with Buzzfeed, will.i.am said he is ‘disappointed’ with the current administration and the sentiment is reflected in his despondent facial expressions. [snip]
But will.i.am’s disenchantment shows that Mr Obama is losing the support of even his biggest fans.
Will.i.am was one of Mr Obama’s secret weapons in capturing the youth vote for his 2008 campaign, volunteering to produce an album in support of the candidate called Change is Now: Renewing America’s Promise.
The first single off the album, Yes We Can, featured Mr Obama’s speech following the New Hampshire presidential primary election and appearances by a slew of celebrities including Scarlett Johansson, John Legend and Nick Cannon.
The song went on to garner over four million views on YouTube and win a daytime Emmy award. Another single featured another array of celebrities changing ‘O-BA-MA’.
It does not matter that warblers who praised Obama in 2008 are now disappointed. We certainly don’t care what they think. However it is proof that Obama is acknowledged by even his biggest fans to be a failure.
Like him or hate him, Bill Clinton forces respect even from his enemies. Republicans might say “oh, it was the economic cycle” or “it was the Republican congress” when they discuss Bill Clinton. But even the haters admit that Bill Clinton’s presidency was a success and that Bill Clinton himself was a success.
Ronald Reagan haters might detest Reagan all they want. But even those of us who give credit to the Pope for the collapse of the Soviet Empire of Evil or those of us who despise his economic policies have to admit through gritted teeth that Ronald Reagan’s presidency was a success and that Ronald Reagan himself was a success.
Rudolph Giuliani haters, hate themselves for admitting that Rudolph Giuliani was a successful mayor of New York City. “Rudy” haters can quibble with crime statistics and try to grab some of the credit for other mayors but there is no doubt that Rudy Giuliani was a successful mayor.
After the attacks on the World Trade Center Rudy Giuliani was dubbed “America’s Mayor” – he was that successful. Hate Rudy all you want but love him or hate him there is no doubt that Rudy Giuliani’s mayoralty was a success and Rudy Giuliani himself was a success.
Barack Obama has two more years to go and only then can the final epitaph be written on his tombstone. But there can be no doubt that Barack Obama’s presidency has been a failure. A colossal failure.
We saw the colossal failure of Barack Obama this last weekend of 2014.
In New York City this past weekend tens of thousands lined the streets to bid farewell to a fallen police officer. The butchered cop was laid to rest as the tears of his family watered the soil that will hold his remains.
Along with the dead cop we saw buried the last possible notion of the Obama presidency as in any way a success. Back in 2007 the Obama acolytes wrote paeans to “his face”. Obama, it was argued back then would unify the races and bring us all together on a world wide basis.
Grown men and women who should have known better promised an entirely different world once Obama was the leader. Truly dumb promises about the healing powers of Obama spouted from the mouths of fools.
The Obama ‘yes we can-ites’ thought Barack was a Black Moses that would lead the nation and the world to a new enlightenment and era of racial harmony. Instead, a funeral, a failure:
This is the year when the public began to give up on President Obama and concluded that he has been a failure as president. In September, I noted some revealing poll results. [snip]
Respondents were asked: “On balance, do you feel that Obama’s presidency so far has been more of a success or more of a failure?” More than half, 52%, said “failure.” Only 42% said “success.” And it gets worse. Only 22% were “strongly” convinced Obama is a success, while 39% are strongly convinced he’s a failure. And the American people have pretty much made up their minds on this; only 6% of respondents had no clear opinion….
On behalf of long-time critics of Obama, let me say to the American people: welcome to our world.
I went on to count down all the valid reasons for marking Obama down as a failed president. Morning again in America this ain’t.
Democrats are pushing race and environmental issues when they should be embracing the lunch-bucket themes that once built party dominance. Meanwhile, voters flee.
Once giants walked this earth, and some of them were Democrats. In sharp contrast to the thin gruel that passes for leadership today, the old party of the people, with all its flaws, shaped much of the modern world, and usually for the better. Think of Franklin Roosevelt or Harry Truman, John Kennedy, or California’s Pat Brown, politicians who believed in American greatness, economic growth, and upward mobility.
For more than 40 years, the Democratic Party has drifted far from this tradition, its policies increasingly a blend of racial and gender politics combined with a fashionable brand of environmental fanaticism. No longer does it constitute a reliable, middle class-based alternative to the corporatist mindset of the Republicans. “Today’s Democrats have no more in common with Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson ,” notes author Michael Lind, “than today’s Republicans have in common with Abraham Lincoln or Dwight Eisenhower.
To regain their relevancy, Democrats need to go back to their evolutionary roots. Their clear priorities: faster economic growth and promoting upward mobility for the middle and working classes.
The Obama failure is so acknowledged that we find our words regurgitated from precincts that once viewed us as living in the past and condemned to the dustbin of history. Instead our views, our analysis, is the prevailing wisdom even if today’s leaders don’t have the guts to embrace it on a practical political level.
Barack Obama is a failure. Internationally he is mocked. John F. Kennedy spoke of the eagle on the presidential seal as holding both arrows of military might and an olive branch of peaceful intent. Barack Obama flings arrows at our friends, like Israel, and bows before despots and enemies. At every level, internationally Obama is a joke.
At Obama apologist left redoubts too, such as The Atlantic,
Obama is a failure:
Editor’s Note: Executive Dysfunction
President Obama has done next to nothing to build confidence in government. [snip]
Republicans—at the national level, anyway—run against the government, of course, and any screwup only supports their case. For Democrats the situation is rather different, as Bill Clinton understood. With greater passion even than the Tea Party, his top aides used to call the bureaucracy their enemy; they saw their role as battling the agencies to get action, often via executive order. [snip]
That’s why Clinton was able to stage a comeback after the Republicans shut down the government. Republicans offered Obama a similar opening by shutting the government down again in fall 2013. At almost the same moment, the president rolled out the digital exchange for his cornerstone initiative. Fate could not have contrived a more dramatic opportunity to prove government’s efficacy. Instead, only six people in the country were able to sign up for health care the first day, and, though the system now works and shows signs of controlling costs, its image has never recovered. In that instance, Obama held the central element—the quality of the exchange itself—in his own hands. Though that can’t be said of all the other ways the government has stumbled on his watch, a pattern of inattention, if not disregard, is unmistakable, from the failure of the Minerals Management Service to check on oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, to the sloppy efforts to sort out what to do about children illegally crossing the border.
It’s all a failure. The Obama left will try to concoct excuses for Obama, but on the key points on which his presidency was based Obama has already proved himself a failure. Racial strife is worse than ever in post-racial America. Muslim nut-jobs hate America as much as ever. Trust in government? Try to find it.
Barack Obama is a failure. As 2014 ends Obama’s signature “achievement” ObamaCare is all out poison. His executive diktats now welcomed by Obama Dimocrats will soon prove to be as deadly as Ebola. Nothing can save Obama from the stink of failure oozing from every pore of his being and presidency.
In 2015 Barack Obama will be seen as an even bigger failure than he is today.
