The Obamamessiah comes home from his “get out of Dodge” trip overseas empty handed …
If there was any doubt following the 2010 midterm election shellacking that the Democrats took on November 2 that the Obama bloom was off the rose, it was confirmed by his overseas unmitigated disaster trip following the midterm tsunami. The once crowned prince Obamamessiah comes back from his trip pretty much empty handed.
After watching his party take a beating in the midterm elections, Obama wasn’t able to secure even a symbolic victory on a trip that was expected to give him plenty of opportunities to claim a win.
“This certainly was the worst 10 days of his political life,”said Baruch College political scientist Doug Muzzio. “Given that he’s not going to be able to get any domestic achievements with the Republicans in control of the House … if he doesn’t do it in foreign policy that’s a big problem for him.
“He came back with bupkis [Yiddish for 'nothing'].”
Obama’s inauspicious 10-day, four-nation trip included a failure to land an anticipated slam dunk free trade agreement with South Korea.
It also included a botched effort to rally Western allies to press China to budge on a monetary policy that threatens to keep the U.S. economy in the tank.
As stated at Weasel Zippers regarding the “Empty Suit” in Chief with an accompanying most appropriate picture, the Obama ship is continuing to take on water and sink.
It’s official, Obama’s policies have been rejected in the United States as witnessed by the shellacking taken during the 2010 midterm election and rejected overseas. Obama’s trip overseas is looked upon as a failure as The One struck out looking. Obama claimed that this trip over seas was not to escape the aftermath of the political carnage of the midterm elections, but instead to “to bring jobs to the United States”. His trip has become what his presidency has also become … a total failure.
