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.

      This WSJ writer really sums it up for me. Obama has been kept afloat so far by the servile liberal media that nowadays is more concerned with scoring political points than being truthful.

      Obama always reminded me of David Dinkins — the one time mayor of New York City. It was the same scenario — the guy gets elected and for whatever reason, they imagine him to be the ultimate People’s candidate, ready to help the working man. What they found out, in Dinkins case, is that he was a snob, who regularly left crisis moments to go off and play tennis!! Same with Obama. There is no reason to assume that he cares at all about regular people. There is every reason to assume he is an upper class Twit of the Year who was installed to keep the commoners at bay for as long as possible.
      SM: I have said the exact same thing in the past and could not agree with you more.

      Every one thought Dinkins was going to be the answer to all the racial unrest in NYC and it turned out he made it worse. They thought he was the common man and turned out to be a Democrat elitist wanting the traffic pattern from JFK rerouted during the Tennis US Open because it was a interferance.

      Problem is the $$$ that put Obamanation in power have the $$$ and evil nature to do whatever it takes to keep him there long as possible, or we’ll pay the consequences, but they will be worth it IMO if we can get our country back from the brink.

      I pray Obamanation doesn’t invent or conjure up a crisis that would allow him to suspend mid-term elections. Cannot forget how Hitler got into power. He was behind in the polls, had an important building burned down, caused an uproar, falsely blamed the Jews, and we know what came next. WW2.

      Nothing I wouldn’t put past this bunch of criminals in the WH that have no concern they are supposed to work for us, not against.

      Current administration has already dug us into a very, deep hole. Not good. So much bailout went overseas, as I knew it would. Staight into the hands of those who intend to use it against us as well.

      Got spammed again. Should I create a new account?
      SM: No, sometimes the spam filter mistakes long posts or posts with links as spam. I took 2 posts of yours out of the spam folder just now. Creating a new account won’t make any difference, it’s the post not your name or anything (klaasend)

      (long read @ the link, but well worth it)

      1. The Obama presidency is out of touch with the American people

      2. Most Americans don’t have confidence in the president’s leadership

      3. Obama fails to inspire

      4. The United States is drowning in debt

      5. Obama’s Big Government message is falling flat

      6. Obama’s support for socialised health care is a huge political mistake

      7. Obama’s handling of the Gulf oil spill has been weak-kneed and indecisive

      8. US foreign policy is an embarrassing mess under the Obama administration

      9. President Obama is muddled and confused on national security

      10. Obama doesn’t believe in American greatness

      Barack Obama has made it clear that he doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, and has made apologising for his country into an art form. In a speech to the United Nations last September he stated that “no one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold.” It is difficult to see how a US president who holds these views and does not even accept America’s greatness in history can actually lead the world’s only superpower with force and conviction.

      There is a distinctly Titanic-like feel to the Obama presidency and it’s not hard to see why. The most left-wing president in modern American history has tried to force a highly interventionist, government-driven agenda that runs counter to the principles of free enterprise, individual freedom, and limited government that have made the United States the greatest power in the world, and the freest nation on earth.

      This, combined with weak leadership both at home and abroad against the backdrop of tremendous economic uncertainty in an increasingly dangerous world, has contributed to a spectacular political collapse for a president once thought to be invincible. America at its core remains a deeply conservative nation, which cherishes its traditions and founding principles. President Obama is increasingly out of step with the American people, by advancing policies that undermine the United States as a global power, while undercutting America’s deep-seated love for freedom.

      (we have a long, hard road ahead to regain our strength as a nation of people who have the American Spirit and inner strength. God help us.)

      This is the guy Oprah Winfrey described as ‘Brilliant’.

      This is what happens when people use their votes to be fashionable. I wonder how many of them are out there scraping the Obama bumper stickers of their cars. Don’t see as many as we did a couple of years back.

      Especially all the young voters who will have learned a hard lesson while in years down the road are sobbing over their federal tax deduction in their paychecks.

      He generates a great feeling of hopelessness for people that love this country. And change, they say it’s good. But his change was heaping more of the things that are wrong on taxpayers.

      What the hell were people thinking? This guy had never done anything worthy of being considered for President of the United States.

    11. A Texas Grandfather on August 13th, 2010 10:52 am

      When we have the Lamestream media become a propaganda machine for the election of a candidate
      this is what happens.

      All the young voters were easily sold a “bill of goods” because they were too immature to question the propaganda machine.

      From Alex Agner—White House Correspondent:

      What’s happening over at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.? For a team that was so incredibly skilled at managing the message and reading the pulse of the country throughout the long, hard campaign slog, it has been weirdly, tragically tone deaf these last few weeks. George W. Bush, not someone known for his nuanced approach to anything, managed to keep his head down during the dark days, clearing brush in Crawford, abstaining from the golf course, and waving goodbye to his wife as she took off on low-cost (and domestic!) camping trips. For a country that’s hurt, an economy that’s limping, and a base that feels bruised, President Obama and his team would do well to descend from that high horse and put their feet back on the ground.

      History will prove you wrong,Bush & Reagan are by far the worst Presidents ever,U.S. troops are being attacked with weapons that Reagan financed.

    14. Brenda on August 13th, 2010 12:54 pm

      Dear TX Grandpa,

      My 26 yr old I’m sorry to say DID vote for Obama. Why? She had herself in credit card debt over school loans and was totally convinced something Obama would do could aleviate this. Didn’t..and she’s not happy. Actually asked, “what ever happened to help with credit and school debt?”

      I told her, he offered the moon and stars, but can only bend over and toss dirt. All he has. She will NOT be voting for him next go around. According to her..ANYONE running against. (how many of those are truly out there?)

    15. super dave on August 13th, 2010 6:54 pm

      #13: you should be a comedian. that would employ you and you could get off the couch and pay some taxes instead.
      us troops are being attacked with weapons that your president and his terrorist friends funded.
      history is already written on obama. he’s worthless as a politician, but is a very good crook. i would like to see his name stricken from the records as the 44 th president and replaced with a real American.
