The Barack Hussein Obama Presidential Experiment is Over … “the Obama strategy has lost the consent of the governed”
Let this be a lesson to America, you do not hire Bob, a first time employee in the job market, as CEO of a Fortune 500 company.
It’s time to put a fork in the “social experiment” known as the Obama Presidency. Let’s call it for what it is, a complete and total failure. The following is a scathing and truthful account of the Obama presidency from the WSJ. OUCH! Never has there been a case of such buyers remorse so fast in a Presidency. Well, then again, maybe Jimmy Carter. That is what Obama’s legacy will be … better or worse than Carter, no hope, no change, just an unmitigated disastrous President.
“Not long ago Barack Obama, for those who were spellbound by him, had the stylishness of JFK and the historic mission of FDR riding to the nation’s rescue. Now it is to Lyndon B. Johnson’s unhappy presidency that Democratic strategist Robert Shrum compares the stewardship of Mr. Obama. Johnson, wrote Mr. Shrum in the Week magazine last month, never “sustained an emotional link with the American people” and chose to escalate a war that “forced his abdication as president.”
A broken link with the public, and a war in Afghanistan he neither embraces and sells to his party nor abandons—this is a time of puzzlement for President Obama. His fall from political grace has been as swift as his rise a handful of years ago. He had been hot political property in 2006 and, of course, in 2008. But now he will campaign for his party’s 2010 candidates from afar, holding fund raisers but not hitting the campaign trail in most of the contested races. Those mass rallies of Obama frenzy are surely of the past.”
As Macsmind states, Americans are left 18 months into the Obama presidency with nothing more than “Buyers Remorse.”
The American people are in complete and total opposition to this President and his policies. It’s time to fold em so that we get no more pot committed to these “house of cards” called the Obama Administration.
But the American people are in open rebellion against an economic strategy of public debt, higher taxes and unending deficits. We’re not all Keynesians, it turns out. The panic that propelled Mr. Obama to the presidency has waned. There is deep concern, to be sure. But the Obama strategy has lost the consent of the governed.
Mr. Obama could protest that his swift and sudden fall from grace is no fault of his. He had been a blank slate, and the devotees had projected onto him their hopes and dreams. His victory had not been the triumph of policies he had enunciated in great detail. He had never run anything in his entire life. He had a scant public record, but oddly this worked to his advantage. If he was going to begin the world anew, it was better that he knew little about the machinery of government.
