Obama and the terrible,
horrible, no good, very bad year

New York Post, by John Podhoretz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/21/2013 1:25:34 PM

When Barack Obama sings “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve, he will have reason to think back, with a deep sense of nostalgia and not a small amount of regret, on the last time he sang the song. If he gets a lump in his throat as he recollects that glorious night one year ago, who would blame him? After all, he was riding about as high as a man can ride on New Year’s Eve 2012. There he was, almost literally the master of the universe — the canny victor of the 2012 election, having run what was

This is an outstanding article. It is rather lenghty but synopsises the disasters for 0bama in 2013. And he has no one to blame but himself.

I have no doubt that obama has absolved himself of all responsibility. He simply thinks that, unfortunately, most Americans are just too stupid to appreciate his brilliance. He is not the problem we are. He believes his own press circa Nov/2008.

No longer the Leader of the Free World, Barack Obama is now merely the Pajama-Boy-In-Chief.

I think a GOOD year will be to see Obama suffer the same way he has made the rest of us...times ten.

As long as our President makes laws on the fly and ignores the Constitution he will be able to cause more problems, unfixable ones, than our country can deal with. He may have a horrible year but we will have a worse one.

Obama is a punk. He reads boringly from a teleprompter. He is not the issue. The problem is with the people in charge. Who are they and what do they have in store? Obama is simply a goof who finds ways to amuse himself. Who are the tyrants running the show? He cannot have a bad year since no events are attached to him personally. He is just a cypher who reads what is written for him. It is time to admonish those in charge.

This article lists 27 disastrous failures of the Obama administration any one of which would have certainly sunk a Republican presidency. We are all praying that our nation will survive this mess that Obama has inflicted on us and counting the days until the next presidential election. But, unless something is done to correct the abuses of the media, to give some semblance of fairness to our political system, we will certainly repeat the calamitous mistake of installing a totally incompetent, American hating Democrat in the White House

We have known for a long time that Obama is an utter and complete failure. Things just seemed to all catch up with him in 2013.

Still, that total meltdown did not prevent him from loading his extended family, president jarrett and the dogs on AA1 to enjoy a two week, multi-million dollar taxpayer-funded vacation in Hawaii. He admits no responsibility for any of his disaster of a presidency.

Like millions of wounded vets who fought for freedom, the dictators are now throwing citizens into a government dictated mess. Veterans must be given the right to choose their own individual medical service and it must be paid for by government. We citizens must be free to remain on the insurance programs of our choice.
Destroying all the good that exists is a crime, and the criminals are getting away with it right before our eyes.
It´s time for a full blast peaceful revolution.
Attack all the criminals who are never even criticized.

The article does a good job of laying out Obama´s failures in black and white. The question now is what can be done to stop this madness? Three more years of Obama and I am afraid there will be no fixing it. The confidence I have in the Republican Party is non-existent since they have shown themselves to be more than willing to go along with the status quo as evidenced in the latest budget deal and upcoming immigration legislation that will be introduced. God help us. The democrats are bent on the destruction of this country while far too many in the GOP are more than willing to enable them. The leadership of the GOP willingly believes the lies of the media and will not offer conservative solutions. However, the people know that the only way to save this country is to slay the big government beast but the progressive Republican leadership are too busy feeding it.

#13, I really do understand what you are talking about but I would like to ask a question of you. What legislation would the Republicans be able to get through with the likes of Harry Reid, Democrats, and Obama? Not much. They didn´t want to go into another shutdown because two shutdowns could jeopardize the 2014 elections. A whole lot to risk.

I´m really not into the "blame Republicans" mode because Obama has that territory. How about the people who sit home and won´t vote for a Republican because of this or that issue. That aids in Democrats winning elections. Republicans need EVERY VOTE in EVERY ELECTION.

Right now, all Republicans can do is limit the damage. I am, by far, supportive of the Tea Party efforts but I hope even they understand that we have to pick the correct battles to fight.

I want good leadership. A leadership that is humbled by the position. A leadership that is honest and not corrupt. A leadership that knows what America was built on and isn´t embarrassed by it. A leadership that wants to work hard and be savvy with the hard-earned money of Americans.

That leadership is not Obama. How can he have a good year when his policies are the opposite of good leadership?

Very interesting to see the list of 2013 failures. One HUGE failure left out was the Iran disaster! Not sure why that was overlooked?!?

Number 13, to answer your question... Nothing. We had our chance in 2012 and blew it. Nothing to do now but live through it and hope there is a nation left when Zero is done.

Are people surprised the community organizer is a utter failure as POTUS? No one has ever been elected to such a high office with more limited and questionable credentials ever! This country was nuts to elect him. His performance is exactly what I expected. Unfortunately we as a nation have to suffer this fool for another three long incompetent years.

So far, no evidence that the President has signed the budget bill. It was passed Tuesday and media predicted a signing on Wednesday.

Then came the outrage that Veteran´s pensions were trashed. Then no further action.

Maybe it will be by robo-pen from the sunny shores of Hawaii.

Oh brother, Barack Obama´s 2013 does NOT come to an ignominious close; not in the least. He is still going to afterburn his tyranny onto the nation completely unabated, Obamacare will NEVER go away even if the GOP wins a veto proof majority in the Senate next year (and keeps the House), he will still get and take every free vacation he wants, he will still play golf while Rome burns, and his tyranny will accelerate unabated; all this regardless of his poll numbers. So ask the question. WHO DOES SUFFER A BAD YEAR? And who will continue to suffer worse years to come while Obama (and the GOP btw) couldn´t give a tinker´s dam? (Rio Lindans, it is NOT Obama)

Every year has been horrible. Now the LSM are starting to cover his incompetence and duplicity. Even some of the lo-fo´s are noticing. Bottom line: he´s never been competent and he´s never been truthful. Our hope now is to keep him from doing anything at all domestically and keeping him from further destroying things internationally.

If 0bama should look to Machiavelli, the Republicans contesting him should look to Tsun Zu. Know yourself and know your enemy - both tasks at which the Beltway RINOs are failing miserably.
Who is your enemy and why does he have a 52% approval in spite of mid boggling screw ups and failures?
Who are you and in spite of 2 out of 3 Americans identifying themselves as Conservative or Moderately Conservative, why do you keep losing elections and showdowns?
One can write a pithy tome here to address these questions. But suffice it to say the Bipartisan budget agreement and the impending immigration ´reform´ aka Amnesty
show a complete lack of understanding let alone (the ability to) control the situation.
Hint - watch what Ted Cruz does.

His (and the Democrat Machine´s) next moves will be interesting.

I will be watching for signs of slash and burn should his prospects of losing the Senate appear likely. It seems that the first move was seeing that the filibuster rule was scrapped.

I´m highly concerned about who else he will push into posts at DHS.

We know they are arming and we know they are exceeding their original mission. To me the DHS has the potential to morph even further to the dark side. Alarmingly, this Jeh Johnson character has pledged his allegiance to Obama.

We also know that he will stack the courts with fellow believers. Good luck getting his edicts overturned.

Another MAJOR concern is his bringing in that "Center For American Progress" and "Open Society Foundations" flak to "advise" him for a year. I´m not at all certain that it was his call. Soros calls the shots at those two entities.

Yes, 2013 was bad for him but 2014 may be worse for us.

Thanks number 14 for putting the facts in prospective.

I believe most of us understand where we are as a nation and the most logical why we can begin digging our way out of this abyss we find ourselves...next years elections. The House is scared to death they will scew things up, again, as they know that if that do anything the msm can blame on them, true or false, it will be another field day for the liberals and the conservatives will be made to look like fools, yet once again.

However, they don´t need to ignore important issues like immigration. That issue is hugely important to conservatives, like me. If the socialist are perceived to win this issue, the media will do everything possible to make sure they do, some conservatives will throw in the towel. The power of the msm is truly powerful.

# 13: " The democrats are bent on the destruction of this country while far too many in the GOP are more than willing to enable them."

While I´m as unhappy as anyone you´ll find about the spineless behavior of the GOP, there appears to be something of a roadblock preventing them from getting legislation through.

According to the latest information I can find at The Hill: "10/5/10 - the House since January 2009 has passed 420 bills that have sat on the Senate shelf"

From September 2010 to 10/5/10 that number of stalled bills increased from 372. With Reid´s foot on them, I doubt that number has decreased in three years.

I´ve asked them if they have any updates.

Obama´s bad year is in direct correlation to the number of people in this country that have had a bad year, and he is the cause of those people having a bad year. Healthcare. The economy. Unemployment. Corrupt and oppressive government. Foreign policy that favors our enemies.

If he wants things to go better for himself, he should change his policies. He is too arrogant to change.

FTA: It is actually better (or less damaging) for Obama to look incompetent than for him to look purposeful. That’s one leadership device even Machiavelli didn’t foresee.

Obama has been playing dumb for years. But now that his policies have been revealed as a wrecking ball, playing dumb doesn´t work so well.

All of this dissecting and deep thought about the 5 year journey of Obama and especially the past year if you think he gives one thought to it you´re wrong.
Obama is a born Marxist communist and he doesn´t waste one brain cell from his low IQ brain regretting or thinking about it. The next three years will stack up on the last five to finish the nation off.
I might sound pessimistic but you all better know your enemies and we are up against a cabal of communist low lifes intent on the destruction of America and theft of taxpayer monies for themselves and their communist cronies.
This 17 day vacation and all the others the Obamas have taken is just the thumb in America´s eye. The communist love what they are doing to us.
I am more disappointed in the do nothing, go along to get along, Republicans who may not know it but they are helping the Communist cabal. I hate them more than Obama.

There is one action the House Republicans do take that, IMHO, help to spread the information about Obozo and what he has done and/or not done. What needs to be done is to file articles of impeachment. Let the House Judiciary Committee hold hearings and then have the entire House vote on them. If the House would do this, then the MSM would surely be forced to cover it. And in that way, the entire nation would come to realize just what Obozo has done to them and what is in store for their futures. Yes, Reid would most likely sit on it and never bring it to the floor of the Senate, but the damage done to Obozo would be done. And that just might shackle Obozo for the rest of his term. At least it should be tried. If the Republicans had any courage.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

Fox News’s ‘Outnumbered’

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –” Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely

The number of Americans who signed up for private insurance in the marketplace has grown to 8 million, President Barack Obama said Thursday during a rare appearance at the daily White House news conference, where he talked about the Affordable Care Act. About 35% of the people of those who have signed up through the federal marketplace are younger than 35, he added.

A New, More Sinister IRS Scandal

Yesterday was a significant day in the IRS abuse scandal. The scandal evolved from being about pesky delays in IRS exemption applications to a government conniving with outside interests to put political opponents in prison. Emails obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act reveal Lois Lerner cooking up plans with Justice Department officials to talk about ways to criminally charge conservative groups that are insufficiently quiet. Larry Noble, a law professor now with the Soros-funded Campaign Legal Center, was cited in the emails as someone agitating to jail conservatives who “falsely” report on IRS forms that they

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said.

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
