2013-08-26 09:47:29 AM  
Ah, yes.  Hugh Hewitt.  No surprises there.  This guy rails on "liberal media bias" like it's a necessary bodily function.

And yet (from wiki):

After Hewitt wrote the book A Mormon in the White House?, Robert Stacy McCain of The Washington Times wrote that "Hewitt finds himself under suspicion of being a cheerleader for the Romney campaign."[12] Hewitt donated $2,300 to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign in 2008, as well as many other Republican candidates over the years, including U.S. Senator Norm Coleman and President George W. Bush. In the leadup to the February 5, 2008, Republican primaries, Hewitt became known for the slogan "A vote for Huckabee is a vote for McCain."[13]

That's not much of a fight.

Nixon went to China, and he started the EPA.  There was just that unfortunate thing at the end where he turned out to think he was above the law.  The country didn't actually completely crumble while he was president.
George W. sat on his thumbs until 9/11 happened, cracked down on our liberties, and ran the country into huge debt and depression.  He earned his place amongst some of the genuine biggest farkup presidents in history, not just the ones in our lifetimes.

Yea Filmore, what have you done lately?  Also, Clinton put a few nails in the middle class coffin too, but Reagan trickling down on everyone got that ball rolling.
But for the over all win gotta go W... 43 get's the nod for the trifecta of shredding international favor, which right after 9/11 was at an all time high. An actual statesman could have built on that...  Increasing the wild west style cutting of corporate and financial sector regulation to the benefit of the 1%.  And the how many billion dollar lie that didn't even make the books that was Iraq 2, shock and awe boogaloo. Which was a part of the first point, and a part of the second, but gets it's own point for it's shear size, the whole finishing daddy's war element.  And "If you're not with us you're against us." that one could argue is the seed that became the Tea Party.

That's kind of a lofty status to give to a bloodthirsty Native-hater. Ol' Andy didn't progenate crap, he's one more in a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG line of American leaders who genocided Native tribes out of existence in the 18th and 19th centuries.

// and I'd say that the first to track a genocide's progress and victims with computers would be the progenitors of "modern" genocide

I'm going to give the author the benefit of the doubt and assume it's not racially motivated.  If we assume that, then my only explanation is that Obama is the worst President ever because he has the audacity to occupy the Oval Office without being a a Republican.

In today's world, everything is sensationalized to the point where whatever is going on right now is the MOST IMPORTANT EVER, so history is irrelevant.  The populace's attention span has been steadily degenerating to the point where we have the memory of a goldfish.  Every crisis going on now is more important than any other that has ever occurred.  Every scandal is the worst ever.  Every bit of drama outshines any that has ever happened before.  Therefore, whatever the current President does outweighs anything all previous Presidents have done, combined.

Obama's on the other team, and he's currently the one in power.  That's the worst thing that's ever happened, according to simple minds.

Lost Thought 00: give me doughnuts: Nope. W and Nixon are still fighting for the top spot.

Both of them pale in comparison to Polk. Hoover has to be in the running as well, though I think he shoulders too much blame.


POLK! But I was assured of the following by They MIght Be Giants:

In 1844, the Democrats were split
The three nominees for the presidential candidate
Were Martin Van Buren, a former president and an abolitionist
James Buchanan, a moderate
Louis Cass, a general and expansionist
From Nashville came a dark horse riding up
He was James K. Polk, Napoleon of the Stump

Austere, severe, he held few people dear
His oratory filled his foes with fear
The factions soon agreed
He's just the man we need
To bring about victory
Fulfill our manifest destiny
And annex the land the Mexicans command
And when the votes were cast the winner was
Mister James K. Polk, Napoleon of the Stump

In four short years he met his every goal
He seized the whole southwest from Mexico
Made sure the tarriffs fell
And made the English sell the Oregon territory
He built an independent treasury
Having done all this he sought no second term
But precious few have mourned the passing of
Mister James K. Polk, our eleventh president
Young Hickory, Napoleon of the Stump

Yet with all the looming evidence to the contrary,... just some of the lies again exposed in this article, liberal farkers will defend him.
Americans are really screwed if we don't put a stop to Obamacare.  The President knows this too but it is the only thing he can hang his hat on as president and he's "hopingtm "for the best possible outcome.  Guess what folks, we're not getting the best possible outcome, that is so obvious and if you don't believe me just ask the 15,000 spouses of UPS employees mentioned in the article.

He was inexperienced and incompetent in 2008, he now has 5+ years of experience at being an incompetent president.

But Bush..Romney..McCain..Paul...  focus on Obama and his record.  Bringing down anyone else doesn't raise Obama.

So your entire argument is based upon... a company cutting costs to improve its bottom line?

There are three simple in Obama's record right now.
1. We're out of Iraq.
2. We're getting out of Afghanistan.
3. We're not in Iran.
You couldn't guarantee all three of those same points on the records of hypothetical McCain or Romney presidencies. Any expenditures related to health care are drops in the bucket compared to the money and lives wasted on the last decade's overseas ventures.

Not to muddy the waters with facts, but here are 33 facts why BOB is the worst prez ever...

#1
When Barack Obama entered the White House, 60.6 percent of working age Americans had a job. Today, only 58.7 percent of working age Americans have a job.

#2 Since Obama has been president, seven out of every eight jobs that have been "created" in the U.S. economy have been part-time jobs.

#3 The number of full-time workers in the United States is still nearly 6 million below the old record that was set back in 2007.

#4 It is hard to believe, but an astounding 53 percent of all American workers now make less than $30,000 a year.

#5 40 percent of all workers in the United States actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968.

#6 When the Obama era began, the average duration of unemployment in this country was 19.8 weeks. Today, it is 36.6 weeks.

#7 During the first four years of Obama, the number of Americans "not in the labor force" soared by an astounding 8,332,000. That far exceeds any previous four year total.

#8 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the middle class is taking home a smaller share of the overall income pie than has ever been recorded before.

#9 When Obama was elected, the homeownership rate in the United States was 67.5 percent. Today, it is 65.0 percent. That is the lowest that it has been in 18 years.

#10 When Obama entered the White House, the mortgage delinquency rate was 7.85 percent. Today, it is 9.72 percent.

#11 In 2008, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 268 billion dollars. Last year, it was 315 billion dollars.

#12 When Obama first became president, 12.5 million Americans had manufacturing jobs. Today, only 11.9 million Americans have manufacturing jobs.

#13 Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.

#14 The poverty rate has shot up to16.1 percent. That is actually higher than when the War on Poverty began in 1965.

#15 During Obama's first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of about 11,000 per day.

#16 When Barack Obama entered the White House, there were about 32 million Americans on food stamps. Today, there are more than 47 million Americans on food stamps.

#17 At this point, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year.

#18 When Barack Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline was $1.85. Today, it is $3.53.

#19 Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

#20 Health insurance costs have risen by 29 percent since Barack Obama became president, and Obamacare is going to make things far worse.

#21 The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.

#22 According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaks down by presidential administration...

Bush Sr.: 11.3

Clinton: 11.2

Bush Jr.: 10.8

Obama: 7.8

#23 In 2008, that total amount of student loan debt in this country was 440 billion dollars. At this point, it has shot up to about a trillion dollars.

#24 According to one recent survey, 76 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.

#25 During Obama's first term, the number of Americans collecting federal disability insurance rose by more than 18 percent.

#26 The total amount of money that the federal government gives directly to the American people has grown by 32 percent since Barack Obama became president.

#27 According to the Survey of Income and Program Participation conducted by the U.S. Census, well over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government.

#28 As I wrote about the other day, American households are now receiving more money directly from the federal government than they are paying to the government in taxes.

#29 Under Barack Obama, the velocity of money (a very important indicator of economic health) has plunged to a post-World War II low.

#30 At the end of 2008, the Federal Reserve held $475.9 billion worth of U.S. Treasury bonds. Today, Fed holdings of U.S. Treasury bonds have skyrocketed past the 2 trillion dollar mark.

#31 When Barack Obama was first elected, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent. Today, it is up to 101 percent.

#32 During Obama's first term, the federal government accumulated more new debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.

#33 When you break it down, the amount of new debt accumulated by the U.S. government during Obama's first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States. Are you able to pay your share?

No, not at all, is that how really you understood it?  You really have to have more depth in thought.
The bottom line for UPS was fine for years until they, you and I we're lied to, and now the bottom line has been made too expensive, that wasn't UPS's fault they didn't change the rules so you can't blame them.  And the insurance product these 15,000 people will have to get as a replacement isn't nearly as good as it was before, just much more expencive and that is Obamacare's fault, that and the rest of B/S you keep falling for.

True enough, but Nixon's all encompassing "America" meant or at least was more broadly read as 'the whole country and everyone in it' .  When W did it "us" pretty quickly morphed into 'us hawkish republicans'.
 
2013-08-26 11:56:02 AM  
Because on Friday, UPS announced it was dumping 15,000 spouses of UPS employees from their UPS health plans despite the president's many, many promises to the contrary.

Obama said NOTHING about what a private company would do with its healthcare plan, he just stated that if you had a private plan that you wanted to keep, you wouldn't be forced to get on the subsidized plan. Nice try, though.

But now that that the bodies of hundreds of gassed Syrian children are piling up in Damascus and scores of Christian churches are burned-out shells in Egypt, it is getting harder and harder to find anything to write about the president that doesn't underscore his incompetence.

Wait, he's President there, too? Wow, when did the Syrians and Egyptians get the vote?

What about Buchanan?  He's still leading in the "# of U.S. Civil Wars Started" column.


I think that would have happened no matter who was in the White House.

I put Nixon on top for scuttling the Paris Peace talks and keeping Vietnam going just so he could  win an election. Plus using the FBI as his personal "fark you" squad on his enemies (real and perceived), not to mention the multibillion dollar boondoggle that has ruined millions of lives: The War of Drugs.

Oh look, BrickHouse placed a wall of text. Cherry picked statisticals to "prove" his point that was cut and pasted from a website.

Tyee, if you think UPS did that because of Obamacare, good luck. You need a helmet. My corporation "cut" any spouse that had their own healthcare by making it too expensive, 80 dollars per pay period just to have him on mine. So he now has it on his own through his work.

I would rather have single payer with all the insurance companies providing supplemental insurance. It's really stupid this way.

Call UPS and call Anthem Blue Cross while your at it about CA.

and the cost of individual plans are set to rise on average 41 percent in Ohio....

Did you even read the article before you went on defense?  There are hundreds of credible citations out there, do your own work finding them rather than wasting my time and yours with your defense and my research.  you want answers, they are there, and they are credible.
You won't take my citations anyway. you just don't want me talking about what is happening because it exposes the failures of promises you believed.

So, as far as I'm concerned, all I hear is a bunch of whining about how Obama hasn't fixed the GOP's fark ups fast enough.

You GOP farkwads had 8 years to fark up a robust economy with a surplus budget and turn it into the worst economic situation since the Great Depression and 'now' you have the stones to sit there and whine about how the Democrat hasn't fixed it fast enough?

A) When Obama became Prez, Debt2GDP was at about 75%, and
B) While, deplorably, that number increased to over 100% as of 12/'12, it also increased from ~58% to ~75% under Bush.
http://www.skymachines.com/US-National-Debt-Per-Capita-Percent-of-GD P- and-by-Presidental-Term.htm


It's almost as if someone is cherry-picking data and blaming long-term trends on Obama.

Not that that makes Obama "good", but saying "he did [x]" -- when [x] was going on well before him -- as if he is the only one or it's all his fault, is disingenuous at best.

If you're gonna smear someone, at least smear them honestly.

Is it that a health insurance plan that's $10 a month and covers 2% of all costs after a $10,000 deductible is not really a health insurance plan?
I can total my rental car and claim it's just a scratch, but no one involved is going to back me up on that.

Yes, there's going to be some outliers to what Obama claimed. As I recall, the original idea details behind the ACA from the Heritage Foundation were even worse.

I should know better than to ask this of a guy that thinks the current President is a Marxist, so lets just consider this a rhetorical question.
Could you give a few examples of the socialists agenda of which you speak?  Keeping in mind that actual Socialism is about two jumps to the left of what we generally do in Canada, and that even your Democrats are typically to our right.

Let's deregulate the banks*, and give loans to people that probably shouldn't have them?  How about all the collateral damage from the total collapse of the housing market, good people playing by the rules paying for mortgages on the value of what there home WAS worth, walking away because the mortgage was tens of thousands more than the current value of the home itself.  Fark you, Obama's fault.  Idiot.

sno man: Brick-House: and as for the GOP opposing breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration. Perhaps that says more about BOB's lack of leadership that anything else. Sorry, but BOB's blindness to everything except his socialists agenda is what is keeping this economy in the toilet. Speaking of which...

I should know better than to ask this of a guy that thinks the current President is a Marxist, so lets just consider this a rhetorical question.
Could you give a few examples of the socialists agenda of which you speak?  Keeping in mind that actual Socialism is about two jumps to the left of what we generally do in Canada, and that even your Democrats are typically to our right.


This one's too easy.

1) Government Motors
2) ObamaCare
3) Spread the wealth around

Cletus C.: Infernalist: I really don't see the value in laying the bad economy at Obama's feet.  We were already in a farking mess when he took the job back in 2008.

So, as far as I'm concerned, all I hear is a bunch of whining about how Obama hasn't fixed the GOP's fark ups fast enough.

You GOP farkwads had 8 years to fark up a robust economy with a surplus budget and turn it into the worst economic situation since the Great Depression and 'now' you have the stones to sit there and whine about how the Democrat hasn't fixed it fast enough?

Bush! Brilliant.


The shoe fits.  The economy was heading for complete meltdown because of Bush and his cronies getting us into a war 'and' cutting taxes, because potato.

You're lucky the black guy got elected and saved us from those retards.

Of the presidents during my lifetime: (as a Liberal)
Eisenhower: Good things: Post war prosperity, Interstate Highway System. Bad things: Korean War, McCarthyism
Kennedy: Good things:? Bad things: Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis. Vietnam "advisors"
LBJ: Good things: Civil rights Act. Bad things: Vietnam War
Nixon: Good things: Ending Vietnam War, Wage and Price controls, Relations with China. Bad things: Dirty tricks, mostly for getting caught.
Ford: N/A
Carter: Good things:? Bad things: bad at handling bad situations.
Reagan: Good things: ? Bad things: too long to mention.
Bush I: Good things: No Reagan. Bad things:Iraq doublecross,war
Clinton: Good things: Rockefeller republican: Bad things: Same
Bush II: Good things:? Bad things, 2 pointless wars with tax cuts, bad treatment of Veterans.
Obama: Too soon to tell. Excluding from personal rankings.
So my top 2 presidents would be Clinton and Nixon.
Bottom 2 would be Kennedy and Bush II.
Rest are in the middle of the pack.

spongeboob: So if Hillary runs in 2016 will we still be hearing that Obama was the worst president of all time or will the Right Wing Blogosphere suddenly remember what a terrible President Bill Clinton was?


Clinton gave us NAFTA, welfare reform, lower taxes, and a balanced budget.  He did that while managing to avoid any new wars, illegal conflicts, or the expansion of the police state.  And he also oversaw relative stability in the mideast, strong relations with Europe, and good relations with emerging markets.  All things the two people we've had since haven't even come close to doing.  Compared to those two, Clinton belongs on Rushmore.

Cletus C.: Truman and Lyndon Johnson sacrificed a lot of young Americans in meaningless wars. That makes them suck badly. The body count of Bush II's meaningless war was a bad month in Vietnam, but he still sucked.

Obama doesn't belong on any worst presidents list.


What about the body PARTS count?  Our meaningless wars came at a huge cost and now we get to not only pay emotionally, but financially for a few generations for those boys who were dismembered.  Vietnam sent you home in a body bag, Iraq sent you home alive but in pieces and with scrambled eggs for brains.

Oh, and Buchanan by a wide margin.  If Obama sucked as president we wouldn't be all unhappy with the NSA, or the increase in drug arrests, or the increase in deportations.  All of these things are examples of a government vigorously enforcing the laws on the books, or as they say it in the schoolyard: "competency"

How is this comic strip even remotely funny? I love satire, I love political humor but the only way 'Hope N Change' could be any less funny is if it was tattooed onto the skulls of dying puppies..It'sIt's


It's conservative humor, and brick houses favorite website. He posts comics from it a lot, here's the comic commentary from the strip he posted.

This week marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech. On Wednesday that speech will be commemorated by Barack Obama - who has done more to destroy Dr. King's dream than James Earl Ray ever hoped of accomplishing.

Under this president, the color of your skin means everything. The content of your character means nothing. A yearning for equality and integration has been replaced with calls for revenge and reparations.

And sadly this has all been done by design, for the political benefit of scheming Progressive politicians who are the new, but no less loathesome, slavemasters.

This is not the future that Dr. King believed in, hoped for, prayed for, and gave his life for.

But had he given a speech called "I Have a Nightmare," you can be sure that Barack Obama would have been prominently featured. And Dr. King's viewpoint wouldn't have been from the mountaintop... but rather from the crumbling lip of a cliff overlooking a bottomless abyss.

I assume you mean Korea in Truman's context. Hardly a useless war. Also not a US war, although the US was of course one of the largest players. The Korean war was under UN jurisdiction. A trivial point perhaps, but quite a few of my countrymen died there...
As to it being useless, South Korea would vehemently disagree. As to Vietnam, yes completely useless and avoidable. But if you're going after Johnson, you drag in Eisenhower (sp?) Kennedy and Nixon. Ike started the ball rolling, Kennedy greatly expanded the scope, Johnson blundered about without a clue and Nixon engulfed the whole region before cutting and running.

Again and again, you post these things that demonstrate the current failure of the modern GOP obstructionists.

In the 80s, Democrats worked well with the President for the good of the nation.  These days, the GOP would oppose breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration.

BOB had full control of the the house and senate for the first two years and what did we get, the job killer Obamacare.

and as for the GOP opposing breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration. Perhaps that says more about BOB's lack of leadership that anything else.

But he's likely in the bottom quintile. I'd say somewhere around Herbert Hoover, but definitely above Grant. As much as I loathe a lot of things about Clinton, he's not in that bracket.

So my top 2 presidents would be Clinton and Nixon.
Bottom 2 would be Kennedy and Bush II.
Rest are in the middle of the pack.


Kennedy's domestic policy to a large extent was enacted after his death. His economic policies lead to one of the longest sustained growth periods the US economy has ever seen.
Bay of Pigs was inherited but, yes, he should have shut that stupidity down. Cuban missile crisis...go read a book. I know it's fashionable on the right wing to blame Kennedy, but the real situation wouras so confused and nuanced (sp?) I would challenge anyone to do better. Read a damned book instead of spouting currently popular talking points. Try getting away from "our team vs your team" and actually reading and thinking. Goddammn...

Again and again, you post these things that demonstrate the current failure of the modern GOP obstructionists.

In the 80s, Democrats worked well with the President for the good of the nation.  These days, the GOP would oppose breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration.

BOB had full control of the the house and senate for the first two years and what did we get, the job killer Obamacare.

and as for the GOP opposing breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration. Perhaps that says more about BOB's lack of leadership that anything else. Sorry, but BOB's blindness to everything except his socialists agenda is what is keeping this economy in the toilet.  Speaking of which...

[403x287 from http://www.orangepower.com/attachments/z-obamanomics-jpg.20409/ image 403x287]


False. He had control of the House and Senate for a couple of months. The current obstruction is the fault of the Republicans and ONLY the Republicans. How is Obama supposed to work with a Congress if the Congress is absolutely unwilling to work with him? Hell, the Republicans filibustered their own bill because they thought the Democrats would actually pass the bill. The Republicans have filibustered more bills than anyone in recent memory.

Speaking of which...

I should know better than to ask this of a guy that thinks the current President is a Marxist, so lets just consider this a rhetorical question.
Could you give a few examples of the socialists agenda of which you speak?  Keeping in mind that actual Socialism is about two jumps to the left of what we generally do in Canada, and that even your Democrats are typically to our right.

This one's too easy.

1) Government Motors
2) ObamaCare
3) Spread the wealth around


1) the Treasury is in the process of selling off the last of it's GM shares (currently about 18% of the common stock). After this sell-off, one of the single largest shareholders with be the Canadian government.

2) How is a huge money-maker for private insurers "socialism"?

3) That explains the huge tax increase on all income levels above $250,000 that...oh wait.

Three strikes.

You seem to be working from the position that Socialism is bad. Why?


Your statements regarding 1) and 2) miss the point that government shouldn't be intervening at all. As for 2), it's pretty obvious Obamacare is meant to fail in order for the democrats to attempt a full Socialist take-over of health-care in the U.S.

Number 3) is a verbatim quote from Obama.

The question called for "examples of the socialists agenda" luckily for us, the noble Republicans and T.E.A. Party Patriots have done all the can to prevent Obama's Socialist agenda.

To answer your question about Socialism being bad. I say "lolwut.jpg"

Socialism is not compatible with freedom, the belief in which is the central tenet of the United States of America (the greatest Nation to Bless the face of the Earth in all history).

The do nothing president that is clueless and at the same time is evil and a dictator who forces his policies on everyone?

He's not a "do nothing" president. It's just that his ideas are bad and when he does something it's amateurish.


What ideas are amateurish? I seem to remember him passing bills to fix the mess Bush made of the economy, passing a healthcare measure that is based off of a Republican idea that actually worked, pulling us out of Iraq and Afghanistan, killing Bin Laden, and a few other things that are far from amateurish.

I do. But there is not an either/or dynamic here, and as we have seen since, there are better methods. I think it was pretty well demonstrated that Nixon's efforts to curb inflation by wage and price controls were the WRONG way to fix the issues. Which is why they have been largely abandoned as an economic tool.

Based on some of your criteria, it seems you may lean toward a more centralized and active governance of the economy, and that may be why you would favor something like wage and price controls in principle, but in practice, they tend to create more problems through bureaucracy and secondary consequences than they promise to fix.

And proving that SOME people don't like Obama based on race is not a counter argument against people who don't like Obama for his policies or performance.

1) So you don't think Obama and the democrats have anything to do with political stalemate?

2) While I do hold that the economy is worse now than when Obama seized power, that's not what I was saying. I was still addressing the issue, namely, Obama's amateurish moves. I pointed out that due to his economic "plan" we saw near double digit unemployment, hence the accusation of "amateur."

3) Republicans don't want Obamacare at all. But the delays and exemptions are being handed out to Obama's cronies by democrats.

simplicimus: Perhaps I do lean that way, but the other path (to me) always leads to economically groundless bubbles and the eventual following burst and recession.


We agree that there is an inherent flaw in the uncontrolled "boom and bust" model of the modern 'free market'. But I consider it effectively proven (By both Nixon and many European Countries) that arbitrary wage and price controls is not the way to go about it.

Personally, I think that tools like Glass Steagall are more effective. The erosion of Glass Steagall under Reagan and Clinton and it's final repeal prove this to my mind by seeing the subsequent accelerated boom and busts.

Also, while imperfect and unwieldy, government subsidies can potentially provide directional control of market prices without the damaging effects of price controls.

Anywho, I would put Nixon's Price and Wage Controls in the negative column, and add HMOs to the negative as well.

Even at the time, a lot of people were (very correctly) saying it was a terrible idea, and that wasn't how you fix the economy. Same thing with the HMO legislation, where some people warned that it would create bureaucracy and price escalation. But Nixon was always very big on autocratic behavior.

Some of this starts sounding familiar. A lot of Obama's critics say that he is Carter redux. I sometimes wonder if he's not a sort of Nixon Two: Executive Bugaloo.

Or maybe both. A bit of Carter's well meaning amateur hour ineptitude, a dose of Nixon's executive arrogance and antagonism toward critics and opponents. Throw in an economy in the disrepair and a rabid opposition determined to see his downfall, and ...VIOLA! Terrible Presidency.

What makes a bad President is rarely that they are a bad person. Sometimes you have the wrong person, but sometimes you just have the right person for the wrong time. I think Obama had the potential to have been a transformative president, but he had the wrong set of personality and tools for the economic and political environment of 2008.

Some of this starts sounding familiar. A lot of Obama's critics say that he is Carter redux. I sometimes wonder if he's not a sort of Nixon Two: Executive Bugaloo.

Or maybe both. A bit of Carter's well meaning amateur hour ineptitude, a dose of Nixon's executive arrogance and antagonism toward critics and opponents. Throw in an economy in the disrepair and a rabid opposition determined to see his downfall, and ...VIOLA! Terrible Presidency.

What makes a bad President is rarely that they are a bad person. Sometimes you have the wrong person, but sometimes you just have the right person for the wrong time. I think Obama had the potential to have been a transformative president, but he had the wrong set of personality and tools for the economic and political environment of 2008.

He's a more hubristic Nixon without the education and with far too many dangerous tools.

Carter seems like a good guy. Not Presidential material, but a good guy.

I would not go that far. Nixon pretty much holds the title for most hubris.

As far as Education, I think Obama has better "paper", but they both have Law Degrees from respected Universities. Obviously, Nixon had more actual experience.

Anyway, I am not directly comparing the two, simply pointing out that Obama seems to share a few of the same flaws. Not all of course. I don't think Obama shares Nixon's deep distrust and paranoia for instance.

And I agree that Carter was a good guy, but I think in a different time, in different circumstances he may have been a stellar president. However, (like Obama), he seemed to lack the chops to navigate turbulent times and impossible situations.

Mike_1962: Kennedy's domestic policy to a large extent was enacted after his death. His economic policies lead to one of the longest sustained growth periods the US economy has ever seen.


Kennedy: Good thing: Through his strong support of the Apollo program, (granted it was at least partially fueled by fear of commies), helped to inspire American parents and their children to give two shiats about science education for a decade, sparking a golden age in technology development that's lasted both of those generations.

Sadly, that "paper" doesn't mean as much as it once did.

As far as distrust and paranoia go, Nixon was terrible at hiding it. Being a politician these days means that you have to be able to act, and Obama is a master at this when he's had ample time to prepare. Nixon on the other hand, couldn't "act" to save his life, e.g. his shifty eyes and sweating during debates with JFK.

Obama and/or his team is probably just as distrusting and paranoid as Nixon. Sending the IRS after opponents, lying about Fast and Furious, Benghazi, spying on journalists, not to mention propaganda campaigns like Fight the Smears.

Obama has a JFK-esque demagogic swagger, but he uses Nixonian tactics to attack his enemies and cover up his messes.

I don't think Obama is Nixon, and not really Nixonian. I think that he shares some of the fatal flaws that Nixon had that made him a poor president.

I will further clarify by saying that whereas Nixon's flaws were deep and inherent, I think that Obama's are the result of inexperience and a lack of overall maturity. Meaning that the too-soon Presidency may have solidified some unfortunate traits that would have otherwise been refined out.

Aristocles: Zeppelininthesky: I am blaming the Republicans because it is their fault.

You are saying that the economy is not better now than when it was before Obama took over? It is as if you no nothing about the economy.

"Obamacare" is only delayed because the Republicans want it delayed.

1) So you don't think Obama and the democrats have anything to do with political stalemate?

2) While I do hold that the economy is worse now than when Obama seized power, that's not what I was saying. I was still addressing the issue, namely, Obama's amateurish moves. I pointed out that due to his economic "plan" we saw near double digit unemployment, hence the accusation of "amateur."

3) Republicans don't want Obamacare at all. But the delays and exemptions are being handed out to Obama's cronies by democrats.


The stalemate is because the Republicans want to defund the ACA, or shut down the government. That is, as far as I am concerned, amateurish. The Republicans are doing it all for spite. Tell me this, what would the Republicans replace with the ACA? They spent MILLIONS of dollars on trying to repeal the ACA. They know the repeal will fail. Talk about a waste of money.

Do you think that Obama can snap his fingers and the economy will just be fixed? Things take time to recover, and if the Republicans would not keep filibustering EVER SINGLE bill that is focused on fixing the economy, things would be much better.

Timelines for the ACA are tight. The Republicans are jumping on this as a "failure", when in reality it is fine.

Oh, to be sure, it was too soon. President Obama nearly perfected acting the part of president and there's no doubt he inspired many voters. Yet he seemed not to have even tried to actually participate in government, for example, all we know is that he was "present" during his tenure as state senator. He didn't make much of an impact as U.S. Senator, either, typically he just toed the party line. Before being elected President, Obama hadn't made much of an impact at all, but boy could he move a crowd.

I should know better than to ask this of a guy that thinks the current President is a Marxist, so lets just consider this a rhetorical question.
Could you give a few examples of the socialists agenda of which you speak?  Keeping in mind that actual Socialism is about two jumps to the left of what we generally do in Canada, and that even your Democrats are typically to our right.

First, that was a play on the inane talking point the democrats used against McCain.
Secondly, as I've already explained, Obama's trial and error policies led to near double digit unemployment, food stamps and welfare are at record levels, job creators don't know what sort of policies they'll be facing from this "punish the rich" president so economic activity is lower than it should be.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2010/feb/08/sarah -p alin/palin-says-obama-voted-present-us-senate-very-ofte/

Obama acknowledged voting "present" -- a vote similar in its effect to "abstain" -- 129 times during his eight-year state Senate tenure, according to a Boston Globe fact-check at the time. The Globe said that Obama cast about 4,000 votes as an Illinois legislator, meaning that he voted "present" in about one of every 31 votes he took. The New York Times reported that the records show at least 36 occasions in which Obama was either the only state senator to vote present or was part of a group of six or fewer to vote that way.

No, it's the Great Suppression. The crash was just an excuse for the 1% to take everything that wasn't nailed down, and there wasn't a damn thing you, I, or any government entity could do about it.

Uh, no. The reason why the economy crashed is because of the housing bubble in 2006.  It was also triggered by a complex interplay of policies that encouraged home ownership, providing easier access to loans for subprime borrowers, overvaluation of bundled sub-prime mortgages based on the theory that housing prices would continue to escalate, questionable trading practices on behalf of both buyers and sellers, compensation structures that prioritize short-term deal flow over long-term value creation, and a lack of adequate capital holdings from banks and insurance companies to back the financial commitments they were making.

These "business creators" don't give a shiat about actually creating jobs. They take the money and then pay other companies to hire people for temporary jobs that pay less than what they would if they hire them full time. They also are the ones that shipped jobs overseas. None of that money is going to the workers. Trickle Down does not work, as shown when we tried it in the 80's. It failed then and it failed now.

SilentStrider: He's still better than the last guy, so no.


And we're done. My reaction was "he's not even the worst President in the last decade..."

Not releasing those at GTMO who have been cleared is distinct from denying due process to those who have not been cleared.

Republicans presently have a moderate majority in the House. They might not be able to get about 60 Democrats to go along with them on impeachment, but they could try rather than wasting time with things like doomed attempts to repeal Obamacare, etc.

It totally has nothing to do with the Republicans in the House refusing to give any money to actually do these things. Oh, wait...

I am glad to see you agree that the Republicans are wasting time. Exactly what would they impeach Obama for? My bet would be presidentin' while Democrat.

"I want to close Guantanamo Bay."

Reps: "Remember how we've been obstructing everything you want to do because we don't have any helpful ideas? Yeah, this isn't getting past us either. No closing for you. Now time to vote to repeal Obamacare again!"

Not that Republicans aren't being obstructionist, but you might want to pick a different poster boy. Lotta Dems fought hard not to let any Gitmo prisoners come stateside. No stateside facility to take gitmo, no closing gitmo.

NIMBY is totally non-partisan.
