30 Reasons To Dislike Barack Obam
Townhall, by John Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 5/1/2013 8:13:24 AM

As a conservative, picking out things you don´t like about Barack Obama is kind of like pointing to the wettest part of the ocean. It also goes beyond politics. Not only is Barack Obama wrong politically, he´s not a good guy, "cool," or even moderately likable. To the contrary, he´s one of the nastiest, least admirable people in politics and he gets by based on a phony persona he created when he ran for President in 2008 -- along with the help of press corps liberals that work to protect him like

I would get depressed just trying to compile such a list, but why stop at thirty?

I´ve been trying to think of something Obama has done that caused me to like him.

I honestly can´t think of one thing. But I can think of plenty more reasons than these 30 to dislike him.

I would have to say my list of reasons to dislike--or rather despise--Obama numbers in the thousands, and seems to grow by about 30/day.
And I can honestly say that I have not agrees with Obama on one single policy or any action he took or statement he made. I find that I am diametrically opposed to him on everything.
I know its hard to believe that I can disagree 100% with him on everything. There must be some point of agreement on something, but I can´t think of a single one.

You could fill an entire book with the reasons to dislike this dangerous, American hating man. In my entire life I have never felt such a visceral, immense contempt for another person. We have all encountered people who we utterly despise, but 0bama takes it to a whole different level. It is so very frustrating that so many can´t see how corrupt he is and that he is methodically destroying the country that we love. I pray the day comes soon that finally proves who and what he is before it is too late. He really is the Manchurian candidate. His entire background is the antithesis of any man who has ever served as president and it is illustrated by how he behaves and everything he does.

The first tip off for me that he was unserious about improving the economy came when instead of signing a bill in the Oval Office he flew (@ $180K an hr.)to sign it in Denver. Or was it the $125 per # of Kobe beef he was serving his cronies once a week?Rgardless - it´s been downhill since 2/1/09.

One day when I´m far too happy with life I´ll sit down and catalog his many discrepancies.

Thirty´s a bare beginning. Re: Dr Paul Fick,
just read the authors few descriptive pages of his great book THE DESTRUCTIVE PRESIDENT.
The pages Fick wrote are on his own website
www.destructivepresident.com as introduction
to his book. Paul Fick PhD forensic psychologist understands the real Obama in a deep significant way that goes beneath his outward teleprompter cool and uncovers
his boiling rage that has never been dealt with in a clinical way.
In the Clinton days, Dr Fick wrote the best
selling, THE DYSFUNCTIONAL PRESIDENT, a great read, that predicted Willie´s lying and sexual ways long before anybody knew the truth. And before Matt Drudge exposed Monica Lewinsky. When that happened, back to the presses and many more books flew off the shelves. Dr Fick´s current book on today´s imposter is a revelation. 30? Try 100.

I think Hawkins left out some important ones.

Obama was the only one to vote on a bill to let babies born alive after an attempted abortion to be left to die with no treatment.

Obama´s friendship with known terrorists, Ayers and Dohrn.

Obama tells Russia´s Medvedev more flexibility after election.
As the U.S. military and law enforcement were scrambling to save lives after a deadly shooting rampage at Ft. Hood, Texas, President Obama opened his remarks Thursday with a two-minute "shout out" to audience members.
To Texans during the wildfire: “You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It’s true.”

Like shooting fish in a barrel.

#19, we can add "gonna" to "stuff" and "you guys" as terms that show how really inarticulate he is. Add the way he props his unworthy shoes on the president´s desk in the oval office, dressed in casual clothes, and you have a true picture of his disrespect for our country and its people.

My 2 cents:
1. It is not obozo - it is huge, well-oiled machine working against America, bringing commie/fascist state structure.
2. People are scared by this machine. And there are no signs that we have leaders who are willing and capable to fight this machine.
(a footnote - repubics missed it completely, the grab of banks, media, whole industries, like automotive and information, including, but not limited to, facebooks, googles, twitters..., I believe cellular transmission too)
3. the mass hysteria media is not just biased, it is part of this machine destroying America, our values, our morals, our way of life.
I could go on and on, but you know it already!

The history of Ft Hood was to fight the Indian Wars, iirc in the 1870s+/-. So Obama giving a shout out to an Indian chief,was designed to be insulting. Check out Prof paul Rahe article ´the five insulting gestures of Obama´ He is a prof at Hilsdale college.andthe article appeared at powerlineblog.com ´bout two years ago. Might be in their archives.

There are six things the Lord hates,

seven that are detestable to him:

17haughty eyes,

a lying tongue,

hands that shed innocent blood,

18a heart that devises wicked schemes,

feet that are quick to rush into evil,

19a false witness who pours out lies

and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

What I dislike most about him is simple.
He brings out the absolute worst in me.

Vapid anger, words I dislike using, feelings I dislike having, a taste in my mouth I dislike being there.

Hearing his voice grates on every nerve I have left. I dislike immensely his embracing the very group of people that wish to kill us. Not only embracing, but strengthening, supporting, and empowering. That is what he should be doing for US, not THEM.

He makes me cringe, he makes me change the channel, and at times, he makes me rage. He makes me bitter, he makes me hate.

"When the winds change, I will stand with my muslim brothers" or whatever the exact quote is. It just made me throw up in my mouth a little.

These are 8 years of my life I, WE, will never get back, and will spend the rest of our lives, our childrens´ lives, and most likely our grandchildrens´ lives recovering from.

Most of all, he makes me feel unforgiving.

Is that reason enough? That he can affect people SO much, that he can worm his way into our emotions that deeply? That succinctly? Make us into our worst side? That we become that which we dislike? Bitter and ugly. I simply find it impossible to smile and try to forget anymore.

He is invasive, like a disease. I wish so badly to be cured of the Liar, Thief, and Mooslim in Chief.

God, help me, please. God, give me strength to make it through the rest of this with a semblance of humanity left in me, and most of all, God help me to forgive him, because I don´t wish to go to my grave with this much disgust in my heart.

Having fresh batteries is all my remotes I can easily escape having to listen to his teleprompter. He is hurting me in the pocket book but I´m not exactly on food stamps. But biggest reason for despising him in the changes in health care. A good portion of what´s left of my life will be spent in waiting rooms to see an overworked, underpaid, physician who I am depending on for my health. When I think of my economic situation, the millions who can´t find work, etc. and I see that jerk playing golf I just want to throw something.

This man who repeatedly fought against providing life sustaining care to living babies who survived the attempted murder and made it outside the womb? Na the soul healer says just let them die because that was the mother´s choice.

Uh-huh that´s nice, 30 reasons. Did you ever consider that to most voters, those are 30 reasons to LIKE Obama? You see, it´s not his fault that he´s the president. We now PAY terrorists to make bombs and explode them in crowds and make sure there are absolutely no common links whatsoever to the motives of terrorists. And if any one remotely suggests that 9/11, Ft Hood, the shoe bomber, Boston marathon has anything to do with, oh let´s just spitball here and say, let´s see, maybe Islam, then you´re the real enemy. Most people in every metro area, where most voters live LOVE Barack Obama and would make him president for life right now. I say again, those 30 reasons are why most voters love the president. Yes, Virginia, they are that stupid.

Breitbart Big Government, by Charlie Spiering    Original Article

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) challenged the notion that former IRS official Lois Lerner still had the right to remain silent since she had made factual assertions since she invoked her Fifth Amendment right. Gowdy said that he counted 17 separate factual assertions by Lerner which in his opinion was enough to force her to be cross-examined. “That’s a lot of talking for someone who wants to remain silent. That’s a lot of talking!” Gowdy thundered. “If you honestly that you can make 17 separate factual assertions and still invoke your right to remain silent, then please tell me what waiver is?”

Islam Critic Speaks Out on Brandeis:

Ayaan Hirsi Ali joined Megyn Kelly Wednesday night to react to Brandeis University rescinding the honorary degree they said they were giving her. Hirsi ALi blasted the “very feeble excuse” Brandeis gave and the way any critic of Islam is threatened with “violent repercussion” just for speaking out. Hirsi Ali said, “For the last 12 years I have systematically been condemned by Muslim individuals… any time that I bring up the treatment of women in Islam.” She said that the people who protested the Brandeis honor cherry-picked from various interviews she’s done over the years “to fit their own narrative.”

MURRYSVILLE, Pa. - It was just before the start of class and the hallways were packed as usual with students at their lockers or chatting with friends. Nate Moore was walking to homeroom, book in hand, when a classmate he knew to be quiet and unassuming tackled a freshman boy a few feet in front of him. Moore thought it was the start of a fistfight and went to break it up. But 16-year-old Alex Hribal wasn´t throwing punches - he was stabbing his victim in the belly, Moore said. The suspect got up and slashed Moore´s face, then took off down

New York - Most New Yorkers don´t even know it exists. But a million forgotten souls are buried in mass graves dug by convicts on a tiny, forbidden island east of the Bronx. Since 1869, still-born babies, the homeless, the poor and the unclaimed have been stacked one upon the other, three coffins deep, on Hart Island. Corpses are interred in great, anonymous trenches. There are no tombstones. Small white posts in the ground mark each 150 adult bodies. A thousand children and infants are buried together per grave. It is one of the largest cemeteries in the United States. And the least

Facts Derail Lying Sharpton´s Informant Tale

In a desperate effort to explain away his work as a paid government informant, the Rev. Al Sharpton yesterday claimed that he first ran into the FBI’s arms after his life was threatened by gangsters, an incident that prompted him to then record 10 face-to-face encounters with one of those dangerous hoodlums. That story is a lie. In fact, Sharpton’s fabricated tale is belied by FBI records that provide a clear account of when and why he began working as a cooperating informant. After unveiling his fable at a morning press conference, Sharpton repeated his claims last night at

IRS’s Lerner sought to deny
Crossroads tax status, emails show

A House committee on Wednesday accused former IRS official Lois Lerner of breaking agency rules by aggressively urging the agency to deny tax-exempt status to Crossroads GPS, the giant political nonprofit founded by Karl Rove, and several other conservative groups as recently as January 2013. The Republican-led panel released emails showing that Lerner took an interest in Crossroads GPS — inquiring with IRS officials why they hadn’t had their tax-exempt status revoked. The committee letter calls her actions “an aggressive and improper pursuit of Crossroads by Lerner, but no evidence she directed review of similarly situated left-leaning groups.”

House Committee Votes to Refer ex-IRS

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

While today´s vote tally -- which broke down along party lines, with not a single Republican senator voting in favor of the bill -- was not unexpected, it came after weeks of a heavy messaging push from Democrats. Had it passed, the bill would have made it illegal for employers to retaliate against a worker who inquires about or discloses her or his wages or the wages of another employee in a complaint or investigation. It also would make employers liable to civil actions Those changes, Democrats argued, would make it easier for women suing for wages equal to their

Add Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) to the list of Senate Democrats who have benefitted from Koch money. In fact, he might as well pay one of his grandchildren to stitch Koch insignias onto his suit to denote their sponsorship: According to campaign finance records, former Koch Industries lobbyist Robert P. Hall III donated $500 to Reid’s campaign in 2003.

Putin steals the CIA’s playbook

The West has made NATO’s military alliance the heart of its response to Russia’s power grab in Ukraine. But we may be fighting the wrong battle: The weapons Russian President Vladimir Putin has used in Crimea and eastern Ukraine look more like paramilitary “covert action” than conventional military force. Putin, the former KGB officer, may in fact be taking a page out of the United States’ playbook during the Ronald Reagan presidency, when the Soviet empire began to unravel thanks to a relentless U.S. covert-action campaign. Rather than confront Moscow head-on, Reagan nibbled at the edges, by supporting movements that destabilized

A tiny fraction of the 880,000 doctors and other health care providers who take Medicare accounted for nearly a quarter of the roughly $77 billion paid out to them under the federal program, receiving millions of dollars each in some cases in a single year, according to the most detailed data ever released in Medicare’s nearly 50-year history. In 2012, 100 doctors received a total of $610 million, ranging from a Florida ophthalmologist who was paid $21 million by Medicare to dozens of doctors, eye and cancer specialists chief among them, who received more than $4 million each that year.

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
