Obama: An inept, amateurish failure

Like an increasing number of Americans, I’m sick and tired of the ineptitude of Barack Hussein Obama.

I’m sick of his lies. I’m sick of his inability to do his job. I’m sick of his abandonment of virtually all of the promises he issued with so much gusto during the 2008 election.

I’m mad at myself for ever — even for a cybersecond — buying into the snake oil illusions of this morally corrupt, intellectually-dishonest bastard.

As a President, Obama is a monumental failure. As a human being, he is devoid of morality, honesty or ability to accept responsibility for his actions.

He’s living proof that affirmative action can — and does — fail to work, even at the highest levels of government.

What — in retrospect — drove this nation to put such an inexperienced moron into the highest office in the land? A first-term Senator? A product of the Chicago Democratic machine? What the hell were we thinking?

True, we didn’t have much choice when it came to the Presidential pool in 2008. When it came to choosing between Obama or McCain, American voters felt like a Christian Scientist with appendicitis.

But Obama could go down as one of the worst Presidents in American history — an amatuer so incapable of handling the job that even George W. Bush — the man Obama blames for all his failtures — comes out looking like a more capable President.

Even Democrats privately call Obama an amateur. In the House and Senate chambers, they whisper and laugh at his many mistakes and realize that they — like too many others in Americans — were had by a con man.

Nineteen months into his administration of mishap, missteps and mistakes, Obama continues to spout the same verbal mantra: It’s not my fault. George W. Bush did it all. I just inherited the mess.

George W. Bush did not orchestrate a budget-busting, lobbyist-crafted phony health care reform bill that will do nothing to provide affordable medical care to Americans who need it most.

George W. Bush did not expand the Afghan war into another Vietnam-style morass.

Bush made a ton of mistakes and his administration put this nation into one hell of a mess but Obama has done nothing to turn the country around. His inability to build the coalitions he promised as a candidate has deepened the gridlock in government and deepened the economic mess.

Polls show Americans no longer buy into Obama’s “it’s all Bush’s fault” whines. They want action, not excuses. They want a leader, not an equivocator.

At this critical time, America needs a leader.

Barack Hussein Obama ain’t one.

He’s just another political hack elected to a job he can’t handle and was never qualified to do in the first place.

And we’re the idiots who continue to put these failures into office.

    “At this critical time, America needs a leader.
    Barack Hussein Obama ain’t one.”

    Those two lines sum things up pretty nicely…

    When i think back at all the hype and hoopla, the fawning fainters and the messianic worship during the campaign i can’t help but laugh my ass off. Yeah, there’s a sucker born every minute, and on November 5, 2008 we witnessed the largest collective brain fart in all of history.

    i am removing Capital Hill Blue from my list of favorites. it used to be one, but sometime in the last months Doug Thompson’s once insightful and trenchant commentary turned to bile and invective and hatred and the twisting of fact and information akin to that of the wingnuts.

    And, now he is crowing about getting all “combat troops” out of Iraq by the end of August. He neglects to mention the 50,000 “military advisors” he will be leaving there, and there is never, ever, under any circumstance, the number of “contractors” that have been there the whole time and how many will remain after August. There will probably be 50,000 or more US soldiers left there and probably as many “contractors”. Lies lies lies.

    Ditto x 10 to the googol power Doug. I have a big scab on my forehead as a result of beating it on the wall for being sucked in by his rhetoric, supported by his no doubt stunning oratory skills.

    This guy was groomed by someone to simply come forth out of nowhere between Bush or Clinton presidencies; ie. a “synthesized” faux leader. That’s why his background check references come up as a dead end in many areas.

    Our government has been compromised by the corporations, our intel agencies and their running dog shills they have in Congress supporting their creeping and seemingly successful coup of the United States of America. The office of the presidency has simply become a MSM proffered venue for Madison Avenue hype. Voting has been reduced to an exercise in futility.

    I blame myself for not doing more thorough research about this guy. Woe is me and my fellow Americans for doing so. This guy is a “judas goat” leading us all to the ashbin of history.

      We all feel pretty much the same. But under the circumstances, the alternative wasn’t acceptable under any circumstances. We should focus our efforts on a third party candidate who will be committed to doing the right thing starting with kicking every lobbyist’s ass out of Washington once and for all. People still naively believe the goverment runs the country. It’s a process of reeducation.

  6. Siannan  August 3, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    I still think back to how I got shouted down by people when I said you were going to be sorry voting for this guy. How I said even my 20 year old daughter said he talked a lot and said nothing. Several people here said I must have raised an idiot if that’s what she thought.

    Who’s the idiot now??

    I just think it is nice that Doug is back. Good column

    “What — in retrospect — drove this nation to put such an inexperienced moron into the highest office in the land? A first-term Senator? A product of the Chicago Democratic machine? What the hell were we thinking?”

    1. A mainstream media that utterly and completely failed to do it’s job, thereby clarifying their role as little more than a propaganda arm of the government and group of political activists and faux-celebrities, and to inform the nation just how corrupt Illinois politics is in general, and the Democrat (Chicago) machine specifically.

    2. An alarming number of people with “instant idol” mentalities, utterly and completely incapable of recognizing the words of a con-artist in spite of having been made fools of time and time again, as the current crop of politicians at all levels of government will attest.

    3. A lack of anyone worth actually voting for. Do you choose the one who burglarized your home, or the one who robbed you on the street? (Lessor of 2 evils my a**.)

      Nice summation Harold.

  10. Warren  August 3, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    When faced with such dismal failures back-to-back, and of opposite political cloth, one cannot help but speculate on common causes of the failures.

    Could it just be that both administrations were controlled by the same people who control the same big-money interests? Big oil, big pharma, big med, the Fed, big finance, big media, big mil-biz, big agri-biz, big manufacturing, …

    The people who control those empires are not large in number, and they appear to be in de-facto control of the U.S. government.

    • Carl Nemo  August 3, 2010 at 9:06 pm

      “Could it just be…” extract from post

      You betcha Warren…!

      Ferdinand Lundberg, a 20th century economist (deceased) wrote a book titled “The Rich and the Super Rich” : A Study in the Power of Money Today. It was originally released in 1968, but has had many subsequent printings and is available from Amazon.

      It’s a fascinating read for sure and deconstructs our entire paradigm as to who owns America, including “We the people” their defacto serfs. The only difference between now and then is that they are in our face and no longer have any need to hide their motives; ie, they are rubbing our noses in their collective, all grasping thirst for power and evermore wealth at our expense.

      I recommend that everyone makes the effort to obtain the book and wade their way through the tome. Younger generations of these older wealthy ones are now in control, but they still carry on in the tradition of the founders of their transgenerational dynasties.

      They choose who’s going to run for office and then present them to the electorate for indemnification via their wholly owned MSM outlets. These candidate products are presented to us through a rigged primary process, then once in office, regardless of party affiliation insure that their corporate friendly agendas are executed. They always win, we always lose…period!

      It seems we best get used to the idea of who “our betters are”…no?
      It’s feudalism redux for sure only this time the fief is owned by the corporation.

    OK so Doug starts channeling Glenn Beck and his audiance sings along like a bad glee club.

    Doug did have one valid point: He’s sick and tired…OH SO TIRED…

  12. Neondog  August 3, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Who will Doug channel next, Fred Thompson?
    Oh yeah baby more tax cuts for the rich or else the economy will crash…

    Sorry dude, the joke just ain’t on yuh..it is yuh!

  13. Neondog  August 3, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Doug’s following comment his indicative of his bigotry, his bitterness and his ignorance. “He’s living proof that affirmative action can — and does — fail to work, even at the highest levels of government.”

    If he actually belives this it is also proof of some serious depression.

    • Almandine  August 3, 2010 at 9:28 pm

      So what’s yer point there dog? Got something meaningful to say? Got a data-based retort that can show Doug up? Got evidence to the contrary of the big o having anything more than red wigglers for neurons? Can you point to a single thing he has done that is moving us out of harms way instead of into it?

      Or are your diatribes only more leftist ass kissing?

  14. Neondog  August 3, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    A data-based retort???
    Sorry dude, but you’ve been hanging out at these dry webholes for so long you actually believe your keystrokes serves as dialogue.

    Seriously man: Take a paper bag, soak it thoroughly, then practice, practice. practice.

      Got red wigglers of yer own, huh?

    I must confess, I think Obama IS a leader. He’s leading us toward a massive World War with Iran, driven by and for the zionists. He’s leading us into total bankruptcy and poverty, so we’ll have no choice but to fight Israel’s upcoming (and current) wars, or starve. He’s leading us to build huge bases in Afghanistan, which will be necessary for the upcoming wars with Pakistan and Iran. He’s a brilliant leader. For Israel, that is. The Warrior Messiah they’ve been waiting for. Forget the deafening whine coming from Israel, it’s all induced by their fascist media and hysterical fanatics for Obama DARING to make a speech in Cairo to the Muslim world. . Forget his Muslim father. The guy planted his seed and split. Take a look at Obama’s Jewish mother if you want to see what Obama is really all about. A brilliant leader and a morally degenerate reptilian. I too am ashamed that I was played for such a fool by such a ‘man.’

    “Even Democrats privately call Obama an amateur. In the House and Senate chambers, they whisper and laugh at his many mistakes…” Who Doug – which Democrats are saying this? This is no better than Fox – rumors and inuendoes are not facts or proof.

    “His inability to build the coalitions he promised as a candidate has deepened the gridlock in government and deepened the economic mess.” Yup, Washington is as bad as ever, but I dont think it’s all Obama’s fault. Call me silly, but I think the Republicans may have something to do with the gridlock in Washington. Could Obama be doing better – sure. Do I feel he’s caving too often to big business/money/special interests – yup. Are the Republicans doing everything possible to ruin his presidency – absolutely. Do I have much hope for our country – less and less all the time. But, given the same set of circumstances, would I vote for Obama again – absolutely. Just think how bad things would be now if McCain had won the election. Given the choice between the current crop of Republicans, tea party nut-jobs, and the Democrats – I’ll take a Democrat for now. There is a lot of undoing that needs to be done, and the republicans aren’t about to even try and fix things. And I shudder to think what will happen if you get some of those screaming tea party-ers in office.

      We don’t need no stinkin’ Democrats or Republicans in the White House…period! America is overdue for “viable” third or multiple parties; I.E., a true choice rather than simply one or the other that have now merged into the now “Duopolist Party”.

      Unfortunately the shadowy power brokers; ie, those that own everything within our vision field won’t allow this to happen. Even Ron Paul isn’t viable because he’s linked to Republicans, regardless of his populist position on many issues.

      Ross Perot failed in his bid for the presidency in 1992. He offered to stay only one term and the guy is a no nonsense, “straight shooter”. The man has a stunning resume’ and is a self-made billionaire to boot. Allegedly the Republican party machine played dirty tricks on him during the campaign and threatened to submarine his daughter’s wedding by making public some photo’s, the content of which was not revealed; so he dropped out of the running. Back then he was warning Americans about the hazards of NAFTA while Bill Clinton et al. were pushing the idea bigtime. One of his quotes hit the nail right on the head and we are now living the nightmare. Quote as follows: America was “daydreaming of [its] past while the rest of the world was building its future.” …extract from Wiki article

      All I can say is if Americans continue to shuffle to the polls to enfranchise either of these corrupt parties, now simply one as far as outcomes are concerned, then we are soon to become a footnote of history.

      Elections are on the horizon and as I drive along the road I see at least several dozen signs of aspiring “crimpols” at every freeway entrance and exit. The question is “who are these people” and why should they get my vote or anyone’s for that matter?! This corrupt system has degenerated into simply an exercise in futility.

    And the band beats on. So what’s next? Another ping-pong volley to the other side of special interest – aka the Republican Party? Surely those American Heroes will save us all.

    No matter which way one travels in the viscious circle of American politics…it’s always a good thing to pause long enough to grease it up for the next screwing.

  19. Almandine  August 4, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    I guess it’s all a matter of perspective… or as a good buddy of mine used to say: I’ve been down so long it seems like up to me.

  20. Janice  August 4, 2010 at 11:50 pm

    Carl Nemo, you are right. But, we need a viable third, fourth, or fifth party. The dems and repugs are different sides of the same coin of corruption. But, given the same set of circumstances, I would vote for Obama again. Ross Perot would have been a good president and (hopefully) would have prevented NAFTA. But the republicans wouldn’t let it happen. We need a legitimate alternative choice – but it seems that the power brokers won’t let anyone else in. I guess it’s up to the people – and I’m not sure we have much of a say anymore.

    “We don’t need no stinkin’ Democrats or Republicans in the White House…period! ” …extract from post

    My commentary posted several days ago has been gnawing on my psyche due to the fact I did not complete my thoughts concerning an indictment against both Dems and Repubs.

    The omission?

    To me its important enough to post this. I meant to write…”We don’t need no stinkin’ Democrats or Republicans in the White House and Congress…period!

    …and Congress…represents the crux of the matter, not who resides in the presidency. My apologies for the “brain fart”.

    Love this piece, and plan to link to it at teriobrien.com and probably talk about it today on the Teri O’Brien show (2-3:30 p Central time, http://www.blogtalkradio.com).

    You’re right about McCain, but I and many others tried to warn you all through 2007 and 2008 about this dangerous, narcissistic, inexperienced empty suit/spawn of the stinking slough of political corruption that is Cook County. It was inconceivable to me that anyone could vote for him, even for Senate. Our first affirmative action president, and I hope our last!
