Barack Obama and a documented record of presidential futility and failure! (Video)

The Barack Obama record is a record of utter economic failure!

People will tell you that Barack Obama came into office inheriting a tough situation.

That the legacy left by President Bush is the root cause of all of this country's problems.

They will say that our current economic crisis is certainly not due to any of the policies of this President.

That no mere mortal man could have overcome the hand that was dealt to Barack Obama.

In fact, his supporters will tell you that thanks to Barack Obama the great recession didn't turn into another great depression.

That folks, if you will pardon the expression, is a bunch of crap!

The reality is that when a man chooses to run for the White House, he should be on a mission to help the United States thrive as the greatest country on earth.

He should be a man who takes responsibility for his actions, decisions and the ultimate success or failure of those decisions.

Three years into a presidency a man owns his record and does not have the luxury of looking for scapegoats to try and explain away futility and failure.

Yet this is exactly what this President, his minions and his supporters are trying to do.

They are looking to explain away one of the worst economic environments of all time while playing political games with the economy!

Below the video is the Obama reality that no amount of finger pointing can explain away.

  1. Barack Obama's first order of business is to blame the problems of the country on the prior administration.

    At some point (although that point will most likely never be reached), President Obama needs to "man up" and take the responsibility for our current reality as he now fully owns the state of the economy!


  2. Any way you slice it, it still comes down to the economy that Bush left for President Obama.

  3. Absolutely, Michael. A real leader takes the blame and shares the credit.

  4. I don't think anyone (other than the libs) would use the word leader and Obama in the same sentence!

    Unless of course the sentence was that "Obama is no leader!"

  5. I could see if he implemented proven strategies to grow the economy and they did not work, but he has gone in the opposite direction. Not sure what it is going to take for him to see that if you hurt the job creators and keep the environment uncertain, you will not create PRIVATE jobs. I always liked the saying, "How many poor people have hired you in your lifetime?"

  6. Obama and his Ivory Tower buddies don't want private sector jobs created. They want the masses to be beholden on the public sector. It was this guys plan from day one!

    Thanks for the thoughts.

  7. Any way you slice it, it still comes down to the economy that Bush left for President Obama.

    Obviously you are good at parroting Democon myths and devoid of facts that are available in numerous independently verifiable sources which document the public record as to the primary cause of the economic disaster. Start here and maybe, just maybe, you can see the need to reject the selective logic fed to you by the liberal media.

    Then read "The 9/18 Attack", file:///D:/EBOOKS%20From%20Desktop/data/20110301094909/index.html
