How did anybody actually believe Obama?

I had only heard of Barack Obama weeks before he did his speech in Berlin. Shortly afterwards, I saw him in the flesh. His accent here in Berlin was unlike any of his other speeches and it was an obvious attempt to sound like Kennedy for the first bit and then Regan in the last few minutes. I knew immediately that he was a crook, yet everybody else thought he was the savior and the answer to everybody's problems.

For me, the "offness" about the President of the United States of America was more than obvious, yet he has swindled almost every other person on the planet. How can this be possible? He has moved far beyond the left-right paradigm... Yet he was elected for a second term.

How did such a tyrant make his way into such a position? It must be some good juice, because I didn't even get a sip, not even from the beginning of the Obama-kool-aid-fest.

~ everybody else thought he was the savior ~


Name those who called him that.



~ swindled ~


How so? Where's your proof?



~ tyrant ~


Republicans have obstructed much of his agenda. What makes him a "tyrant" in your mind. Please provide specifics.

Why would anybody believe any politician. Obama is just a hand puppet of the ruling elite, a face on a cereal box, a cartoon character for "democracy, just like all the presidents before him going back to Tricky D!cky.

If you think Obama is a tyrant, you got some weird notions of what constitutes tyranny. As for his re-election, I calculate it's because the Republicans put up a candidate who openly and publicly stated that he was not interested in 47% of the citizens of the United States, and did not intend to represent them or consider their interests if he got into office.

The optics on Obama's successful reelection has more to do with upping the ante on long-shot promises coupled with a successful campaign in demonizing the Reps

Just another in an endless array of laughable BROKEN RECORD anti-Obama threads with innumerable attacks but not one solution to the mess created by Republicans. And that's just the first 2 pages of that section.

Thank you Admin for adding to it.

Funny I had the same thoughts about Bush when I first saw his face.

Guess they'll let anybody in these days

Obama did have a hell of a lot of hype and he did well in debates, etc.... but his message of "Hope" sure went down the crapper pretty quickly.

But really, using a different accent during one speech doesn't really prove a lot.

Maybe he was just trying to speak clearer for the Germans to understand

Bush got all the legislative support he wanted from a highly cooperative Congress.

By contrast, Republicans obstructed the Obama agenda. Of course this is no surprise considering how some went on record as saying they wanted Obama's administration to fail.

I was about to add to my above post, but you replied too quickly :P

I was going to also say that his message went flat pretty quickly..... but it's not like the Republicans didn't help with that by opposing just about everything his tried to do. Oppose everything the Democrats plan to do, make it all fail and in turn, point the finger at the Democrats for not getting anything done and make them look incompetent.

Good points that are clearly lost on the OP.

That excuse only goes so far.

Obama had control of both Houses until the mid term.. On a number of issues he could not compel all of the representatives in the Dem Party to vote his legislation through.

That failure falls directly on the shoulders of the Dems and/or Obama

This was because of DINOcrats or Blue Dog Democrats who joined with Republicans in stopping some (but not all) of the Obama agenda. Significantly, many of those BDD's lost political office thereafter:



Blue Dog Coalition membership experienced a rapid decline in the 2010s, now having 19 seats in the 113th Congress (external - login to view).[4] (external - login to view)

Perhaps if they had supported Obama his agenda would have succeeded and those BDD dupes would still be employed in Washington, DC.

In 2008 I immediately saw Obama as a shyster lawyer/politician/chameleon. He was an expression of the culture itself and the degraded character of a people. He was reelected in 2012 because he demonized an establishment moderate as a dog abuser who killed some guy's wife.

Things aren't going very well for either Obama or the USA. In many ways the Americans are getting exactly what they deserve. If schadenfreude were a cup it would be running over.

Who's fault is that ?

The US Constitution was designed to be cumbersome in order to prevent the accumulation of political power in any single branch of the govt. Except in emergencies, the Constitution only permits action if consensus is reached. Consensus requires, among other things, effective persuasion.

President Obama has, in the absence of emergency, accumulated power in the executive branch by refusing to enforce laws with which he disagrees. Take the Defense of Marriage Act(DOMA)as an example. Without regard to the merits of DOMA, Obama unilaterally decided not to enforce DOMA before the Supreme Court ruled on the matter. The same is true of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) where Obama unilaterally suspended the Employer Mandate. Obama's refusal to enforce the laws controlling the southern border are another example. These were not matters of administrative discretion.

In using "his pen and his phone" Obama has effectively seized power from the legislative branch and arrogated it to the executive branch. In this manner Obama has established a precedent that will be used by all subsequent presidents and placed the Republic on a new political trajectory.
