II Video: Megan Kelly (Fox News) with Ben Shapiro: “Obama’s administration – Borderline Jew-Hating!”
By Jerome S. Kaufman
Obama chided the GOP for opposing his agenda in a speech at a political rally in Austin, Texas, July 10, 2014. This was one day after meeting with Texas Gov. Perry and other state officials to discuss the immigration crisis. Obama, took the occasion, at his narcissistic best, to brag about the job he is doing.
Au contraire! It is now clear that by a recent WSJ/NBC poll, 54% of Americans feel that Obama is no longer able to lead and 41% feel his incompetence has gotten worse over the last year! In fact, By his job record, President Obama should be given a pink slip not a star on his forehead. He should be demoted back to the job in which he was truly successful — community organizer, voter hustler and political fraud.
The Huffington Post, July 2, 2014, not exactly a right wing rag, reports the following public opinion poll results:
* President Obama’s Approval Rating was very high among Muslim Americans – (Terrific! Is that supposed to be some sort of comfort to the rest of us?)
*President Obama’s approval rating has dropped in the general population to 43% from its one-time high of 69% in January 2009.
*A third of voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.
Fouad Ajami, recently deceased Arab/American political analyst, had Obama pegged a long time ago. In an article written in the Weekly Standard by Lee Smith July 14, 2014, Ajami wrote in 2008, “The Tragedy of Arab Political Cultures has been the upending expectation of the crowd — the ‘street’ as we call it. The message promises there will be a redeemer who will put an end to centuries of Arab decline. It will be an Arab leader who will restore the faded splendor and greatness of Muslim culture.”
Ajami was alarmed listening to this same sort of “Politics of Charisma” message emanating from Obama in 2008 — virtually mesmerizing Americans. He felt he was hearing the same message that wreaked havoc upon Arab and Muslim societies over the centuries. The insidious problem is that a charismatic leader of this sort does not have to do anything but stimulate the imagination and the latent dreams of his audience.
Obama has been expert in both of these areas. But, he has gone much farther. He has deliberately put us into a frightening state of disarray and decline reminiscent of Arab culture and more recently, the socialist failed experiment of the European Union.
What exactly has Obama done? What is this glorious record of which Obama is so proud?
1. The Obama Affordable Care Act (ACA) — enacted in 2010 promised to reduce the Federal Budget Deficit while hugely expanding health care coverage. Instead, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates the ACA will cost $92 billion per year by 2015 and up to $200 billion by FY 2020 propelling us inexorably toward Federal bankruptcy.
2. The National Debt – (From CBS News) The National Debt now exceeds 100% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product, the total value of goods and services. In simpler terms – We are spending more money than the country is producing! Mr. Obama doesn’t mention the National Debt much because the National Debt will top $20 trillion in 2016, the final year of his second term. That would mean the Debt increased by 87 percent, or $9.34 trillion, during his two terms. So, his redistribution of wealth is working beautifully. He is making us all poor and deliberately, systematically bankrupting the whole country and will put us soon under the domination of our worst enemies.
3, Obama has empowered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to routinely by-pass the US Congress and become a virtual fourth arm of government — legislating and enforcing questionable policies lethal to the economy with little if any scientific justification but long on political advantage to the far Left wing of his political party.
Over the past three years, the Obama EPA has conducted a scorched earth campaign against fossil fuel producers and users, especially the coal-fired power industry, with multibillion-dollar rules that provide no meaningful environmental or public-health benefits. The EPA has also created greenhouse gas emission standards for power plants with rules that will make it financially impossible to construct new coal-fired power plants in the United States and diminish our own energy independence to even more dangerous levels.
4. Obama has engineered a Justice Department under his long time buddy and fellow traveler, Eric Holder, that ignores the laws of the land, ignores the Congress, refuses to prosecute cases that do not promote their so-called liberal agenda while resolutely pursues harassment of those on the Right.
5. Uses the Internal Revenue Service to harass Conservatives that will not vote for him and prevents their organizations from obtaining tax exemptions and the huge benefits given to Labor Unions, Teacher’s Unions and the Unions of government employees.
6. As a result of Federal government largess to its employees, the average salary in Washington, DC is now $72,000 — 25% higher than comparable jobs in the rest of the country!
7. The Food Stamp Program, administered by the US Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever — to 47 million people, according to the most recent figures available in 2013! Television is replete with employees of the Obama Administration begging people to go on to food stamps and helps them fill out all the necessary papers — often over the objections of the people solicited!
8. The myth of Obama’s outstanding teaching and political career
Washington Examiner SEPTEMBER 19, 2012
Obama’s 12-year tenure as a law lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School.
During his first two years, he did rank first among the law school’s 40 instructors, with students giving him a rating of 9.7 out of a possible 10. But, law student evaluations made available to The Washington Examiner reveal that students quickly began to see past the glitter with no substance. It showed that his popularity fell steadily. In 1999, only 23 percent of the students said they would repeat Obama’s racism class. He was the third-lowest-ranked lecturer at the law school that year. Obama’s byline did not appear in a single legal journal while he taught there. By the way, Obama wasn’t a professor; he was a lecturer.
The pattern of minimal performance at the Chicago campus was not an exception to the modus operandi of Barack Obama. In the State of Illinois Senate during the same years he was lecturing, Obama voted “present” nearly 130 times — the most of any legislator in the chamber.
And during his lone term as a US senator, according to GovTrack.us: “From Jan 2005 to Oct 2008, Obama missed 314 of 1300 recorded or roll call votes, which is 24.0%. This is worse than the median of 2.4%.”
The Weekly Standard July 14, 2014, points out the one area where Obama is quite resolute. It is in grossly diminishing our military preparedness by firing military officers who have served the nation with great honor. He has terminated the careers of 1100 Captains and about 500 Majors. He is in the process of diminishing our armed forces from 570,000 soldiers to 420,000 at a time when the Western world is directly imperiled by Islamic terrorism and blatant Chinese and Russian aggression — thanks to Obama’s deliberate nation-destroying policies and so-called “Leadership from Behind” — which means no leadership at all.
Obama’s foreign policy is an unmitigated disaster. The record speaks for itself. China and Russia are now making aggressive advancements all over the globe. Putin in making outrageous advances in the Ukraine and already in Georgia attempting to resume the former power and breath of the Soviet Union. China is treating the huge South China Sea as its private lake encroaching with force into the territorial waters of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines and Viet Nam. Obama’s Middle East foreign policy evidenced by the civil wars in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, the disenchantment of Saudi Arabia and the disassociation from our only reliable ally in the Middle East, Israel is an unqualified gargantuan disaster.
Unfortunately, the above pathetic list by the way, is just the tip of the iceberg.
Yes, President Obama, you may wax eloquent, as always, as to the great job you are doing. But, the claim now resounds only with the deaf, dumb, blind, congenital Democrats and the inexplicably loyal devotees of the mindless Left.
