Obama’s Staggering Record of Failure
Commentary Magazine, by Peter Wehner

Original Article

Posted By:Piercentire, 4/24/2014 8:07:18 PM

In advance of President Obama’s four-nation Asian tour this week, the Washington Post published an article saying this: President Obama’s bid to focus U.S. attention on Asia has failed to meet the lofty expectations he set three years ago in a grand pronouncement that the new emphasis would become a pillar of his foreign policy. [Snip] By now, nearly five and a half years into the Obama presidency, objective people can draw reasonable conclusions, among which are these: Barack Obama was among the least prepared men to ever serve as presidency. It shows. He has been overmatched by events right from the start.

Is among?? IS AMONG????

He is so far from the pack, none of the others can even see him. He exhibits the ultimate end result from a lifetime of never being held to standard, of always getting that little extra boost from Affirmative Action set-asides and promotions of the unable to compete.

The average incompetent realizes his incompetence and pursues a path to do no harm.

However, Barry, besides being incompetent, is a malignant narcissist. Any action he takes is COLORED (does this make me racist?) by his grandiosity.

Barry really does not see the damage he is doing because, being superior, he believes himself incapable of doing damage.

It will be a wild ride until January 2016!!

Why is anyone surprised and why does the author and commentators here willing to continuously chalk up the failures to incompetence ? After 5 1/2 years it is painfully obvious that he is a hard left socialist and intends to do exactly what he said in "fundamentally transforming" this country. This man and the small cabal around him are evil and intend to do as much damage to this country as possible.

What we know and believe to be damage to the Republic and the Constitution ie failures obama and the Democrats believe are improvements! When things can´t get done legislatively obama and the Democrats use the courts or Executive orders or a Government agency like the IRS, EPA, to impose their leftist/Marxist crap. Democrats don´t need Congress. They know the Republicans will get beaten up my the msm if oppose anything little barry wants to do. So the next three years are going to be very long and dangerous. If Hillary is coronated as the next President then it´s all over.

#9 I think he is both. A rank amateur without the skills or background to lead the world but also a socialist bent on destroying our democracy. He let his ego get in the way. If he were really smart he could have destroyed us without crowing about it and a lot of people would not have noticed.

Obama is the face of the Presidency. While he campaigns, she spins her evil web destroying the country. He is not incompetent. This is all by design, and until we recognize that, nothing will change.

Articulate writing from Peter Wehner
The fifth paragraph is a most amazing list .........
A Bill of Particulars. ....... To keep on hand
To not forget this very capable destroyer
This schemer of failure.
Looking back on how Lenin"s propaganda strategies
paved the way for the even more brutal Stalin to follow,
and one wonders whether Obama´s propaganda lies are
paving the way for an even more bruta! lying Hillary.

A new twist on "Planning for Socialism". .....
This time around, it´s "Planning for Destructive Failure""

In Obama´s first term, someone wrote: Someday some social science genius will write a definitive work that clearly describes how a person so inexperienced, so knowledge-deficient became POTUS. The world will then learn more about social psychology, politics and human frailty than ever before.

Now, in his second term, the American people are in even greater need for journalists to step up and shed light on "Obama´s staggering record of failure." Their grandchildren and great grandchildren are watching.

His four nation trip to Asia is merely an attempt to undo the damage done to his already poor image in China and really the whole area by his unchained wife and his own inept leadership.

He is also there to divert attention from his devastating failure in Europe and basically on the whole world stage. Putin has run circles around him and so have the terrorist regimes in the Muslim areas.

Someday he may realize that he doesn´t have much talent for anything except for race baiting. That too will come back to haunt him and this country will need real leadership to repair all the devastation he has caused.

Here we go again. We "straights" are shocked at Obama´s failures at foreign policy. He is not concerned with foreign policy. Yes, he goes and enjoys the perks but his concerns are right here at home. He has 8 years to transform this country and time´s a wasting. He and his merry band act as a tag team and, believe me, they are carrying on in his absence. They are all criminals in my book.

I believe that zero, and others, have been shaped and molded from birth to be placed into positions of power, similar to “The Boys from Brazil” movie. He was meant to be a figurehead nurtured to gain the controls of government, but he wasn’t meant to be in charge. His handler is Valerie Jarrett, but she is not setting policy either, she’s just another piece of the machinery. We don’t know if Frank Marshall Davis was his real father, but we know he was his mentor.

Zero was groomed to play a role and he was rewarded even though others were doing the work in the background. His job is to be the puppet. Even when he is proven to be inept; the hidden agenda is succeeding as planned. The only times he embarrasses his puppet masters is when he goes off script or is away from TOTUS. Even with TOTUS, any average patriot would not read “coprsemen”, much less the CiC.

Mooch is part of it, too, but she’s not a true believer, she’s a greedy and vengeful racist. She knows too much and has decided to live more lavishly than planned, and away from zero. Minor inconvenience, but with the press in their pocket, no harm, no foul.

We console ourselves that we have the internet, but oddly enough, our government is about to relinquish control. Maybe at the right time the net will go down and the press will blame Putin. The internet is at risk, military purged of patriots, fossil fuels curtailed, ranchers and farmers under assault, and the push for gun control – in a war, those are military goals: disrupt communications, decimate the forces, interrupt fuel deliveries, control the food, and disarm any resistance.

The hammer is raised and we’re not looking up.

#41 is the leader of my team: obozo is a puppet. Yes, very important one but he is nothing if not for the cabal that is pulling the string. The names? It is funny, in the times of total penetration it is impossible to name names. Yes, jarrett, yes, soros, but there are much more.
The other point I would like to make. Did this regime worsen the lives of Americans? SIGNIFICANTLY! Isn´t it the fascist/commie goal? So, you can put it in the column - their great success.
The rest of the world? Cabal doesn´t actually care at the moment. They need to destroy the middle class in America. At this moment I would want to have support from everyone - even "right-wing" militia.
One more thing: all the talk show hosts and pundits are "repulsed" by what Bundy said. I don´t like to say the word "N*&#$r" myself, but I wanted to hear the same level of indignation when obozo´s wifey said the word "W*&#$y". Crickets? And, btw, she was the graduate of Princeton/Harward, not the guy who was surrounded by sharpshooters and SWAT. Who were sent by dark colored prez and dark colored AG.

What needs to be remembered here is that our government has been infiltrated. They will still be there no matter who is elected next. They have their orders and will follow through on either supporting a Dem/fascist or deep sixing a Republican.

We need to eliminate as many departments and agencies as we can. The government has become unmanageable. It´s just too big, and as a result we cannot be sure of who is trustworthy and who is not.

Correct #41. Like the famous comments from abroad said about the "Prince of Fools" Obama...The prince will soon be gone but the fools will still be there. Some of us tried ever so hard to deny the prince his goal by taking the good advice of a great Republican when he stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and said that he had a dream that we would some day judge each other by the content of our character instead of the color of our skin. The fools did the opposite.

In a fascinating interview with Charlie Rose, David Brooks–who is now teaching moral philosophy at Yale–spoke, among many other topics, about Viktor Frankl, the Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor. Dr. Frankl, in his book Man’s Search for Meaning, deals with the fact that he was living a life he didn’t plan for. Living in a concentration camp obviously isn’t what he hoped for. The crucial question became not what Frankl wanted out of life; it was what he would do with the hand he had been dealt.

For nearly 60 years, Kathy Dionesopulos presided over the London Cleaners, a bustling downtown institution where you could get a hat blocked, a bridal gown mended, a tablecloth repaired and, yes, dry cleaning done. But Dionesopulos brought something besides clothing care to the counter. She found out how that gown got torn, how that candle burned the tablecloth and so much more. "The counter that divided her from her customers really was like a bridge. She was learning things about her customers and turning them into friends. I think she fixed people´s lives in a lot of ways,"

Little Chute — Noah Van Vooren waited by the mailbox every afternoon. They said the letter would come in April. So he waited. Even in the rain. Even when his sisters yelled at him to come inside. Noah, 19, had applied to college like many of his friends at Little Chute High School. Edgewood College in Madison hosts a special track for people like him, with Down syndrome or other intellectual and developmental disabilities. He wanted to be the first to know whether they'd take him. The news he got on April 5 has now been enjoyed by the half-million people who have watched the family video posted to YouTube.

In this episode, a rare collision of the Haggler and the news. Our letter comes from a couple who have been trying for months to sign up for health insurance through Healthcare.gov, also known as the Obamacare website. And Monday, March 31, is the enrollment deadline, though the administration recently announced exemptions for people who had trouble signing up. [Snip] We have been told on successive calls that there is no logical explanation for this, and that our complaint will be “elevated” and “expedited.” I write this in mid-March. Mindy has had no health coverage since Jan. 1.

The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
