Out of the loop?

May 23, 2013

If we listen to our president’s speeches of late we can conclude the only thing he’s responsible for is the killing of Bin Laden....

This should be interesting. I wonder how our friends on the left will defend President Obama this time.

At no time did the Obama Administration know what the Obama Administration was doing.

I suppose you'll have to find a new name for "Obamacare" then. Perhaps you may even need to resort to the radical step of calling something by it's actual name, the Affordable Care Act in this case.

They have to call it Obamacare cause if they call it the Affordable Care Act it's an oxymoron.

He has tried to raise taxes, blamed the House of Representatives, reduced public tours at the Whitehouse, reduced TSA effectiveness at the airports, tried to restrict firearms, acted as Whitehouse Tour guide for the children and parents from Newtown, told federal agent not to enforce federal marijuana laws in CO/WA, is working on making illegal immigrants into legal ones, and preparing for summer vacation to Martha's Vineyard.

He has been busy.

We should believe that when a US Ambassador is begging for help over seven hours that the President of the United States would not be involved.

We should believe that the investigation of one of the top three national security leaks in our nation's history never rose to the level of Attorney General or President of the United States.

We should believe that an IRS investigation that ended in May 2012, showing criminal targeting of specific groups, never came to the attention of the President of the United States.

Either President Obama is the most inept, failure of a leader or he is the biggest liar to ever occupy the White House.

Either he is a figurehead president, with other people behind the curtains actually running the show. Or he is very good at getting other people to take the blame for his actions so he can maintain the illusion of not being involved.

It is bizarre that Obama gets to go out and give speeches where he says that he is trying to straighten out the problems in Washington. And nobody calls him on it. He acts like he is not the president and is instead campaigning for the job so he can fix it all when he gets there.

If we only had a media that would call him on that disconnect.

Chris! You're TOO funny! The Affordable Care Act? HAHAHAHAH!

Just another example of Liberals naming their programs the opposite of what they are. By the way, you seemed offended that she called it Obamacare. I actually drive past a car every day that has a bumper sticker that says "I Love Obamacare" so don't tell us that Obamacare is an unaccepted term.

Unemployment is down, housing is on the rise. We are now liked by the rest of the world. Sounds a lot better than the Bush years. If we can just get the party of no to actually do something for a change it would be much better.

Not sure why this Administration needs any staff to run things. Nobody knows nuthin about nuthin. Sounds like Obama could do it all by himself.

****"Unemployment is down, housing is on the rise." All you have to do is look at the want ads in any newspaper to know thats not true. I love how they release unemployment figures for the month, always saying it's improving, then a week later release a statement saying the original number was wrong, it's actually higher.

"The government is simply too big for President Obama to keep track of all the wrongdoing taking place on his watch, his former senior adviser, David Axelrod, told MSNBC. “Part of being president is there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast,” he explained."

All the more reason for a smaller government.

"Anyone can pump up a fake bubble. Wait till it bursts then get back to us." - Josh84

Just like the tech bubble back in 2000 that burst towards the end of the Clinton years & spilled over into the early part of the Bush years.

The Obama Administration would classify that as a incident of "Road Rage".

Short and sweet, Phil. The media is doing the unthinkable in actually starting to investigate this administration. (However, only after they were also abused by the govt.) It is unfathomable that every scandal (and that is what they are) is the fault of some rogue low level worker. Talk about a bunch of wimpy ball less politicians! None of them have the guts or integrity to stand up and take ownership. Pathetic!

Tgrammiex4 - actually employment is up. Unemployment in our area does not mean less employment in other areas. Take a look at the want ads in states that are thriving. I know this because my grandson lives in Colorado. I couldn't believe the number of jobs from unskilled to skilled. Our state was manufacturing dependent and that does not fly and never will again.

Unemployment is down?!

Tell that to the largest number of people on unemployment, food stamps and disability in the history of the world!

Bush43 may not have been liked by the rest of the world, but he did not have any terrorist attacks on US soil after 9/11. Too bad that under President Obama, the terrorists have brought the war to our soil because he is withdrawing from their soil.
