Barack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed presidency since Woodrow Wilson.

In the modern era, we've seen several failed presidencies--led by Jimmy Carter and LBJ. Failed presidents have one strong common trait-- they are repudiated, in the vernacular, spat out. Of course, LBJ wisely took the exit ramp early, avoiding a shove into oncoming traffic by his own party. Richard Nixon indeed resigned in disgrace, yet his reputation as a statesman has been partially restored by his triumphant overture to China. George Bush Jr didn't fail so much as he was perceived to have been too much of a patrician while being uncomfortable with his more conservative allies. Yet George Bush Sr is still perceived as a man of uncommon decency, loyal to the enduring American character of rugged self-determination, free markets, and generosity. George W will eventually be treated more kindly by historians as one whose potential was squashed by his own compromise of conservative principles, in some ways repeating the mistakes of his father, while ignoring many lessons in executive leadership he should have learned at Harvard Business School. Of course George W could never quite overcome being dogged from the outset by half of the nation convinced he was electorally illegitimate -- thus aiding the resurgence of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. But, Barack Obama is failing. Failing big. Failing fast. And failing everywhere: foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly, in forging connections with the American people. The incomparable Dorothy Rabinowitz in the Wall Street Journal put her finger on it: He is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them. Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard says he is failing because he has lost control of his message, and is overexposed. Clarice Feldman of American Thinker produced a dispositive commentary showing that Obama is failing because fundamentally he is neither smart nor articulate; his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by its audacity and lack of shame. But, there is something more seriously wrong: How could a new president riding in on a wave of unprecedented promise and goodwill have forfeited his tenure and become a lame duck in six months? His poll ratings are in free fall. In generic balloting, the Republicans have now seized a five point advantage. This truly is unbelievable. What's going on? No narrative. Obama doesn't have a narrative. No, not a narrative about himself. He has a self-narrative, much of it fabricated, cleverly disguised or written by someone else. But this self-narrative is isolated and doesn't connect with us. He doesn't have an American narrative that draws upon the rest of us. All successful presidents have a narrative about the American character that intersects with their own where they display a command of history and reveal an authenticity at the core of their personality that resonates in a positive endearing way with the majority of Americans. We admire those presidents whose narratives not only touch our own, but who seem stronger, wiser, and smarter than we are. Presidents we admire are aspirational peers, even those whose politics don't align exactly with our own: Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Harry Truman, Ike, Reagan. But not this president. It's not so much that he's a phony, knows nothing about economics, is historically illiterate, and woefully small minded for the size of the task-- all contributory of course. It's that he's not one of us. And whatever he is, his profile is fuzzy and devoid of content, like a cardboard cutout made from delaminated corrugated paper. Moreover, he doesn't command our respect and is unable to appeal to our own common sense. His notions of right and wrong are repugnant and how things work just don't add up. They are not existential. His

descriptions of the world we live in don't make sense and don't correspond with our experience. In the meantime, while we've been struggling to take a measurement of this man, he's dissed just about every one of us--financiers, energy producers, banks, insurance executives, police officers, doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, post office workers, and anybody else who has a non-green job. Expect Obama to lament at his last press conference in 2012: "For those of you I offended, I apologize. For those of you who were not offended, you just didn't give me enough time; if only I'd had a second term, I could have offended you too." Mercifully, the Founders at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 devised a useful remedy for such a desperate state--staggered terms for both houses of the legislature and the executive. An equally abominable Congress can get voted out next year. With a new Congress, there's always hope of legislative gridlock until we vote for president again two short years after that. Yes, small presidents do fail, Barack Obama among them. The coyotes howl but the wagon train keeps rolling along. Another Failed Presidency By Geoffrey P. Hunt http://comments.americanthinker.com/read/42323/407805.html ___________________ Comments on "Another Failed Presidency"

Posted by: Pragmatist Aug 30, 11:23 PM Why all the hand wringing the naive, gullible, hysterical, emotional and in the case of Blacks Racist voters of the USA have elected a completely undocumented Marxist Mohammedan BOGUS POTUS Barrack,you can call me HUSSEIN now I won, Obama. So why the surprise when Mohammedans and radical Black communists are crawling out from under their stones and being given posts where they can do the most damage in his administration. This is CHANGE that will kill you USA there is no HOPE. Posted by: JRG3 Aug 31, 12:06 AM Yes and his will be a spectacular failure! A 4th of July fireworks grande finale sized failure with a horizon of exploding stars, the smell of sulphur in the air, and the stirring notes of the 1812 Overture ringing through the air. Crowds will rise to their feet and applaud. His failure will be memorable. It will be immortalized in song and poem and prose. His name will become anathema in politics. His ignominious fall will be so momentous they will put his picture next to the word failure in the dictionary. Such is what happens with hubris when one's reach exceeds one's grasp. And he will get plenty of help from Nancy and Harry and the rabid end of Democratic party. With friends like those..... If it would only happen soon before he does more damage.

Posted by: tanarg Aug 31, 12:17 AM We should have been able to expose him ourselves, with or without the media. Next time, we'd better get our act together to prevent another monster from getting in the White House. I think there's hope, Pragmatist, that his hands can be tied NOW and that he might even resign. After all, he's going to not know how to handle things from here on out. Posted by: nom de guerre Aug 31, 12:32 AM "george HW bush (lost) because he was perceived as too patrician"??? why why WHY do media people insist on refusing to mention the *actual* reason ghw bush (and dole) lost to clinton?? remember ross perot? short talky fella? ran on a 3rd party, split the gop vote? (and spare me, pls, any lectures on how 'democrats voted for perot too'.) is there some sort of media style-book out there that insists on ignoring perot in order to make clinton look much more popular than he actually was? it seems to be (grudgingly) acknowledged by media people that wilson got elected because roosevelt split the gop vote in 1912. will we have to wait 50 or 60 years before we're allowed to write the truth about papa bush and bubba? papa bush and dole lost because perot sucked votes away from them. simple as that. Posted by: AnneH Aug 31, 12:58 AM Bush 43 may have had a questionable election in the first go-round, but he was undoubtedly elected our leader-in-chief the second time, which to me, gives validity to his first election. To compare the obamanation to LBJ and Carter is like trying to compare current day Cuba to Germany during the 1930's. Castro only wants to control his own nation. He is a puppet for other nations who have since lost control of their own revolutions. Hitler wanted to control the world. His self-controlled power was lost through his destruction by his own hands. obama's goal is to eventually destroy America or at the least to bring her to the socialist level of countries beneath her past strengths. The powers that control obama (because, let's face it, obama is not the one in control) will continue to seek destruction of our Constitution with or without obama and his cast of characters. They use things like accusations of racism or the illusion of equality, to bring about control of the people. To dumb us down is the main goal so they eventually seek their ultimate desire of control - financial, physical, and spiritual. Keep your cupboards well-stocked, your ammunition and first aid as well. Continue to read the words of our nation's forefathers. The first knock on your door will be the census-takers. Answer only the most necessary of questions to fulfill your duty as citizens. The census takers are paid to narc on you. They are Acornenlisted. They are Step One in control of this nation. After that, they will come for your cap and trade payments, health insurance installments, then your computers and guns.

Posted by: higgins1990 Aug 31, 01:17 AM He does have a narrative, but like you said, it doesn't intersect with most of ours. Obama's narrative is the liberal post-modern narrative where America is an evil empire leaving victims in her wake as 'the rich and powerful' exploit and oppress, that says that people in the mid-west cling to their guns and religion, a narrative that re-writes history and perverts facts so that Obama can say things like "we are the people we've been waiting for". It is a narrative of power, a narrative repeated by Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Pol-Pot, Chavez and every other tyrant and dictator. Posted by: Charm Aug 31, 02:22 AM The article expresses just about everything I believe about the man. I'm just not sure if there are enough of us that see it. I hope so. But then what? What is the damage going to be to us, our country and future generations? Obama and the Dem leadership are incredibly destructive people. I don't see any evidence that the citizens of this country matter to them at all. How will we contain the damage they will try to do? Look at what they have done in 6 months. Posted by: John Galt Aug 31, 02:28 AM Mr. Hunt, Extremely well written piece exposing Obama for what he is and isn't. Thank you. To AnneH: Locked and loaded, ma'am. food, water, ammo. the enemy is in the perimeter. Posted by: SenatorMark4 Aug 31, 02:32 AM Although I agree that there are major problems with the Obama administration and I don't like, at all, the people he's putting in positions of power, any failure that comes this way gets shared by both parties. The Republicans cannot find anything they believe in even at this point. It may be easier to sit on the fence and laugh at the parade of marxist fools walking down American highways in their yellow Che shirt waving the American flag but the fact is they don't have ANYTHING to add. America learned from the Republicans that politicians will say anything to get elected. America has learned from the democrats that they will do anything once elected. You'd think all these genius ivy league "public" servants would be able to find at least four (4!) clear policies that could inspire America again. Nope.

Someone should kick McCain in the nuts. Why? For withstanding torture from communists for 5 years only to hand over the country to a blatant communist. All he had to do to stop the destruction of our country was open his mouth during the early primaries about Obama's communist mentors, political alliances and church. He couldn't even open up his mouth to save the country. Posted by: tc Aug 31, 03:08 AM Nicely written, sir. Begs the question of whether BO is going to continue to be the functionary for his puppetmasters and have his legacy tarnished for them or choose to someday stand up and be his own boss simply as a measure to save his own bacon. As of today, he's 50% cooked. Posted by: cedarhill Aug 31, 04:03 AM Mostly, I think, it was his first 10 years of life that formed his distorted perception of the USA. Like Obama, I was born overseas of American parent(s). Although I attended grade school primily in the US, one knows at a very early age that you are somehow different. Just going to the globe and showing where you were born to your classmates puts you in a different category. Obama, for him, was born "overseas" when he started school in Indonesia. His peers would have asked the same questions and he would have shown them Hawaii (after 1959 a state). His peers would not have been just curious but very likely branded America to the extent that little old Barry would have to have gone out of his way to avoid being the "ugly" American. He may have developed his deceitful character that has been so good to him at that time, given he's so expertly sincere when telling Obama's (that's lies, misinformation and deceit to Libs). As the Jesuits have said, give me the a boy until he's ten and I'll show you the man. His later years in the Land of the Elite Socialists simply reinforced this to the point where he views himself as a historic person out to make America conform to the rest of the world. And thus, he has no real understanding of American founding principles and uniqueness of individual freedoms. Freedom is just a talking point to him. In the end, Barry is just a little Indonesian boy raised reacting as one should expect as a product of an American-hating society intellectually underpinned through his exposure to the socialists and American-bashing elite of his secondary and post-secondary teachers, mentors and religious leaders. He will not change. He has no basis to compare. He really is trapped in his own mind with no way to deviate nor motivation to change. He will become increasingly bitter and vile as time progresses. After all, the USA is the Great Satan, for real, in his mind.

Yes, mostly true, but during the third debate, McCain brought up the issues of the live infants delivered in the late term abortions, and that Obama voted to deny the infants any medical care. McCain was kind of tripping over his own words, on this critical topic, legalized infanticide, but did get it out. Obama of course replied with a laundry list of outright lies. At the end of the debate, none of the commentators, not even the "conservatives" (Brent Hume, William Krystal) even raised the issue, and gave Obama a totally free pass. But Krystal's face had the expression of the "cat who swallowed the canary". I really looked like this was a high level edict from the networks to all the talking heads. Yes, McCain should have done much better, but he got zero help. Posted by: grannyb Aug 31, 04:33 AM ...certainly there is some third world crap hole that is looking for a dictator...

If you are going to trash the President, at least be consistent in your feelings. So, please make your decision. Please

choose from the following: a. President Obama is an evil, marxist, socialist who is the mastermind of an evil and sinister plan to destroy America from the inside. He is systematic and calculating in his every move to slowly destroy the fabric of America. b. President Obama is an idiot and out of his league. He has no leadership experience and it is finally showing. c. President Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread. What the h*** are you talking about? Please give yourself the following points for your answer: a. 10 b. 5. c. 0 Please see the answer key for your score: 6-10 points -- You are the right wing equivalent to Oliver Stone. While you may have some of the message right, you are reading too much into every nuance of the situation. You are probably waiting for the President to rip off his mask, reveal himself to be George Soros while complaining "And I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those pesky kids." 1-5 points -- You possess keen insight of the current political situation. However, continue to monitor in case the President does prove to be an alien. (Whether that be from Kenya or another planet, we wait to see). 0 points -- You are obviously mentally challenged. Please go back to googling Brittany Spears and the Jonas Brothers. You are on the wrong site. Posted by: Richard L. Kent, Esq. Aug 31, 05:20 AM powhitemale the smartest president the world has ever seen, just doesn't understand why we don't believe 2+2=5.>> "You Americans are soooo naiiiii-eeeeeve!" 2+2 = 5 for sufficiently large values of '2'. :-) And as for the comment that "he's not one of us"? Congratulations. Youve just handed the Dems another baseball bat marked "GOPers Are Racists" to hit us over the head with. Still. I don't despise him because he's black.

Could you have made your opinion that BEE is the perfect answer without insult? How irritating.

Posted by: Hk40cal Aug 31, 05:46 AM I hate sounding like a shameless promoter of Rush and Mark Levin, BUT, these two, since 2008 have been screaming from the highest mount.....'this guy HATES America'.....he has a grudge.....he want's to return the nations wealth back to its rightful owners..... I heard Michele Bachmann on Levin's show (last Friday)....She is predicting "SranFran NaN" is going to use what ever power she has to force Obama'care through the House.....Congressman Bachmann mentioned to Mark....When the Republican congress meet with Obama after the inauguration.....These select Republicans saw an insight into Obama....he said to the Republicans, 'he would rather be a one term President and get his agenda passed than a two term president and get none of his agenda across the finish line'.........SCARY!!!! These talking heads and nim-rods like Frum can talk all the want about him failing.....This guy doesn't care.....He has his troops on the move......and right know, all we can do is watch. Any Republicans, like McCain, that follow along with this guy are making a huge mistake......we have to let the left jump off themselves..... We have to recognize that it is full speed ahead damn the nation and it's people......I am God'Obama........ Golf, Guns and Money Posted by: Video Savant Aug 31, 05:47 AM Everything in this article rings with truth -- except for the 2012 fantasy sequence where a departing Obama apologizes to those he offended. Obama doesn't do PERSONAL APOLOGY. Because Obama is never wrong. It simply isn't possible for him to recognize, never mind admit, such a thing. Posted by: Leman Russ Aug 31, 05:47 AM My apologies now Feklen. I was just trying to point out that Obama cannot be a mastermind and an idiot at the same time. Personally, I think he is an experienced organizer and politician who has no idea what it takes to LEAD and GOVERN. He surrounds himself with Yes Men (and women) who placate his narcissistic attitude. It is my opinion that he truly believes he can fix anything based on his charisma alone. He will fail and fail miserably. And, please go back and note that I was mocking all three answers. Just trying to get a little humor here this Monday morning. Posted by: Ann141 Aug 31, 05:49 AM

I think Mr. Hunt is being generous when he suggests that obama "may" loathe the American people...is there any doubt? And we, wanting to be a part of reality, cheerfully return the favor to obama: we definitely loathe him. More and more every day as he adds to the destructive narrative spoken against our America by his words and deeds. He really needs to get out of Our White House. Lest my intention be misunderstood: the focus in that last phrase is on "Our". Through recent months, obama has repeatedly referred to the White House as "my house"; the lovely lawns surrounding it as "my lawn" and the front door as "my door". He's living in public housing and has apparently forgotten that. (Now that I've seen it "loath" [in the article] and spelled it "loathe" in my comment--I'm still not sure which it is. Doesn't the "e" at the end give the "th" the soft sound?....Oh, well....) nom de guerre: I agree with your comments about Perot. My memories from that campaign also include the absolute frustration I felt with Bush, Sr. in the closing days of the comment when he seemed to consciously refuse to acknowledge that Clinton was closing in and overtaking him. His perceptions about how to run a dignified campaign (or something) seemed to put him in a mind frame where he was unable or unwilling to respond appropriately to developments on the ground. If that election had been held 10 days earlier, I think Bush/Dole might have won. I also remember the shallow, shallow thinking of many conservatives (who not so much called that then) who were voting their pocketbooks because they boxed up their brains, put them on the shelf and bought into Carville's negative hype about the 1991 economy. Frustrating. Posted by: Kevin Aug 31, 05:57 AM All true, of course. I enjoyed the last sentence, a homage - I think, to Hunter S. Thompson. Hunter, why did you leave us in our hour of need?

Posted by: The Angry Capitalist Aug 31, 06:05 AM Never before in the two hundred and thirty three year history of the Republic have we faced as great a threat to our individual freedoms as that which is Obama. He has sought not only to co-opt a huge segment of the economic capacity of this nation through the government seizure of the banking and automotive industry, but now he and his fellow leaches on the national wealth seek to annex an even larger segment of the nation’s identity. The proposed government takeover of the health care system represents a direct threat to the individual sovereignty of each and

every productive member of this Nation. These shackles, once bound may never again be broken, forever condemning us, the producer, to the same fate as that of the mindless slave. Posted by: Birther in OK Aug 31, 06:07 AM "Clarice Feldman of American Thinker produced a dispositive commentary showing that Obama is failing because fundamentally he is neither smart nor articulate; his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by its audacity and lack of shame." And thank you for reminding us, as if we really need it, but he, Barry S., has never been the smartest in the room. Only the most gullible. He has taken on so many contradictory positions and is white to white people and black to black people, Christian to Christian and Muslim to Muslim, no one knows what he is talking about. They can only speculate what they think he said and believes, based on a convoluted ideology and a biography that is mostly fiction. Very sad. A dark tragic comedy that does not have a good ending. "The coyotes howl but the wagon train keeps rolling along." Yes they do, and it reminds me of this, Our heroes have always been cowboys. Not lilly-liverd pantie-waists such as Barry-Barrack Hussein Sotero-Obama. Dangerous times. Brian Posted by: Diana Aug 31, 06:09 AM When someone bankrupts a business, another business can come in and take it over under a new name so that the debt is left to the courts and the previous owners to sort out. I am beginning to think that there is no remedy for America. Perhaps the best thing is for states like Texas who are well run states and not financially bankrupt, who have what they need to be a country in an of themselves, to secede from this mess unencumbered by debt. The mess is to great and face it, GWBush helped to make this mess. He paved the way for this extroidinary executive power. I personally like Bush but he did not protect our liberties from future tyrants because of the things he put in place domestically, whether on purpose or not, remains to be seen. I have begun to wonder if he was purposefully carrying on the vision of his grandfather and father about a NWO. Posted by: Feklen Keckleberger Aug 31, 06:10 AM Thanks, Leman, that is most kind. Perhaps I should get to my coffee a bit sooner, yah? On a side note, and not to be merely disagreeable: some of us believe stupidity begets evil, an oddball juxtaposing of stupidly refusing to see the truth that is God giving way to the calculated evil that is the earthly "wisdom" which brings catastrophe, as God brings them delusion. Sometimes evil genius and stupidity look an awful lot alike. But again, thanks for the very kind response. 'Av a lovely dye, mite!!

Posted by: VHG Aug 31, 06:25 AM The solution has to be to get the dems out of power in 2010 and Obama out of the W/H in 2012 never to return! And to make sure he doesn't crawl back to the Senate, the House or anywhere else, not even the UN! The American voter had better understand that the old saying, "elections have consequences" is not an old saying but a scientific fact! Conservatism is what America is and always was! These unfortunate side trips into liberalism always seem to create the worst periods in our history! Posted by: Raf from Florida Aug 31, 06:32 AM Obama had a perfect start; he was a failure at birth from failed parents; The perfect ruse for a Manchurian candidate; the right foil for the perfect time. This total loser was groomed and handpicked to bring about Armageddon. Honest success would only have gotten in the way. He is fading fast but he may have enough momentum to carry him to the finish line. I still find it curious that so few of my associates and even family members are willing to publicly discuss Obama, either through fear, embarrassment or both. Obama is being insulated with czars, unions, Corporate lackeys and “private armies”, (even the secret service). His controllers believe they can drag his useless fetid carcass past the finish line with or without the people or their so called elected representatives. He just has to make it to 2012. After that there won’t even be a pretense of constitutional government or Christian morals. 2012 will usher in a change paradigm in America, one way or another. Posted by: scythe Aug 31, 06:36 AM Does anyone ever wonder what this man would be doing now if he had grown up and still lived in Kenya? I ask this question because I still continue to marvel at the gall he has when he denigrates this country. Only in America could a lightweight like he have the opportunity to be where he is. And attend the most prestigious universities. Only in America, because of the goodness of her people, would someone who is so pathetically shallow and so devious be elected to the highest office IN THE WORLD. I love the comment by grannyb - it humourously captures the value of what he might be worth in a Third World Dung Heap. In America he became our 44th President. In his "heartland" he might be worth two goats and a couple of chickens. And boy are they coming home to roost. LOL Posted by: Iago Aug 31, 06:40 AM "We" elected a Marxist as president. Obama is applying Marxist policies to the government of the USA, and is getting Marxist results. Obama will not be around long enough to destroy the USA in the sense that the Marxists destroyed the Soviet Union, but we are getting a strong taste of how bad it could be when totalitarians take over.

Posted by: Sam Aug 31, 06:40 AM Again the old question: What would success for Obama look like? Achieving which set of campaign promises? How many of his voters understood what he said? We had warning in his speeches if we could listen carefully. I think vengeance is first and the glory is secondary. He's not almighty intelligent but he's more than a fine parrot. He may not be highly educated but he is highly trained, largely in malice. He needs to be mysterious, or everyone would see how hollow he is. Parasites eat themselves out, self-destruct, if they are removed from their victims. I think of Paul Robeson, the star of Show Boat (Old Man River) and friend of Frank Marshall Davis. He had a lot of appeal, much more than Obama. The coldness wasn't so immediately evident. We'd love to love him, but he was eaten out with bitterness. We're sorry to see it, but hell will be populated by such. Joy has been offered and rejected. Posted by: Julie Mckinley Aug 31, 06:44 AM Jeremiah Wright. Bill Ayers. And that "mentor" in Hawaii.

A writer from the NYT (if you can believe it) aske His Imerial Arogancy if he was a socialist. Obamugabe replied, "You know, let's take a look at the budget - the answer would be no." Later, some time after the "interview" had concluded, the writer's phone rang and was told "the President would like to speak to you". President O-blivious refered back to the "socialist" question, asking incredulously if it had been a "serious question". Now, this brings up many thoughts, among which is, is he so self-absorbed he doesn't even realize he's a socialist (add "Marxist Communist")? Posted by: tc Aug 31, 06:46 AM Nice call.

AnneH, The only questionable election I have wittnesed in my years was and is OBAMA'S. The reason the communist party was so pissed when GW Bush was elected the first time, was that they had ACORN AND SEIU and the rest of the commies ALREADY stuffing ballot boxes and registering dead people and having ppl voting four times back then, and when it wasn't enough to throw the election their way they started hollering fixed election when it was them all along. I completely agree otherwise. Posted by: Claude Aug 31, 06:52 AM Love the article. Funny that Wilson was really the first of the progressives in the past century. Progressive agendas do not fly well in the US. And, they should not. As for Barack being a single term president, I do not agree. He will get the nod just as he did the last time.

And to Republicans should be the greatest thing since sliced bread. God bless. Brian Posted by: JimP Aug 31, 06:58 AM Hoorah! How can we all help the Prez to fail even more spectacularly and quickly? Posted by: richtfan Aug 31, 07:15 AM this article is pure genius. Posted by: Tom M Aug 31, 07:17 AM Yes, he is failing and I would say he is nothng more than a failed dictator. He has never been my president. I have never heard anything from his propagandic mouth that I can believe in. The hope and change I believe in comes from within my being and not from some government platitudes. You are very right in that he fails totally to connect with most Americans. Without his teleprompters he is completely illiterate and history-deficient. He is a baffoon intent on destruction of a great and free country. God help us if we let him succeed.

Why should I care if the Dems and socialists call me a racist? What power have we granted them to make that determination about us? Posted by: Warrior Aug 31, 07:24 AM To nom de and ann141 . Perot was the villain in that election, however George 41 was very naive and just didn't believe people in America would vote for a person like Clinton whose conduct was well known. My cousin a very well known Professor of Economics was called in to help Bush as an Economics advisor. He told me about 10 days before the election Bush would lose. He also informed me if Bush had Dan Quale's political team he could and probably would have won. The Republicans are not street fighters. If someone would have walked up to Carville and challenged him, he would have run like a scalded dog. What was disturbing to me with the information gap between Quale's team and Bush's team. I can understand between that level and a much lower level of office thinking when trying to get elected. There should have been a much better understanding of objectives.

Communists and Marxists are Czars who have no Congressional oversight and who are advising this President. Most of us knew what was coming with his election. We have not slept a full night since his election because of concerns for our Republic. Get your butts to DC on 9/12 or stir up a march of your own in your home town. Let people know they are not alone in their disgust for this Congress and

Administration and their fears for our Country. Watch Glenn Beck. The poor man is doing the hardest work for all of us, trying to get some sunshine on this festering wound of an Administration.

Doesn't the "e" at the end give the "th" the soft sound?....Oh, well....) Ann141,

"Loath" and "loathe" are two separate words. You used the correct form. The "e" at the end softens the "th". "Loath" is an adjective and means "reluctant", as in "I am loath to comment". "Loathe" means to feel disgust. Barack may indeed loathe us. nom de guerre, Don't blame Perot. Blame the people who voted for him. More important, blame Bush and Dole for not being candidates we could support. How many people supported John Anderson in 1980? Didn't Carter expect him to siphon off Republican votes from Reagan? It didn't happen because Reagan gave us a reason to vote for him. I voted for both Bush and Dole but Perot got me energized before he dropped out the first time. After that, I wouldn't vote for him under any circumstances. Bush 41 had so disappointed me that I was ready to vote Democrat in 1992 but I just couldn't trust Bill Clinton. You assume that all the people who voted for Perot would have voted for Bush. Some might have but there were probably a lot of Republicans who would have held their nose and voted for Clinton if Perot hadn't presented them an alternative. If you want to blame someone for Bush's defeat, how about Pat Buchanan? He started it with his primary challenge.

you are missing a few things. even Clinton swung right to avoid a total failure. obama is clearly a beleiver in socialism, his own words abotu return the wealth demonstrate that. and there are people behind him, using him for destroy the US. (kinda missed that possibility didn't ya...)

Posted by: Jake Aug 31, 08:02 AM So much for the historic moment. That was hardly worth trashing the national mall on inauguration day. You can see by the way carville has a concerned look on his face and is shifting his eyes he doesnt think that obama and the saul alinskys tactics are working as planned and they might have to give back 40years of lying and cheating. Posted by: proreason Aug 31, 08:25 AM "It's not so much that he's a phony, knows nothing about economics, is historically illiterate, and woefully small minded for the size of the task-- all contributory of course. It's that he's not one of us. And whatever he is, his profile is fuzzy and devoid of content, like a cardboard cutout made from delaminated corrugated paper. Moreover, he doesn't command our respect and is unable to appeal to our own common sense. His notions of right and wrong are repugnant and how things work just don't add up. They are not existential. His descriptions of the world we live in don't make sense and don't correspond with our experience." All perfectly true. But it still misses the essentially factor. He has no desire to be one of us. He wants to rule us and punish us for being who we are.

Posted by: pmk Aug 31, 08:26 AM Barack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed presidency since Woodrow Wilson. Wilson was another one who got in thanks to a third party challenge, by none other than Teddy Roosevelt. The GOP was still dominant in national politics but Teddy couldn't handle being on the outside looking in. Wilson's presidency is labeled "spectacularly failed" but do the historians see it that way? He's seen as a hero of the Progressive Movement and progressives are running the Democratic Party today. The Federal Reserve and womens suffrage came about on his watch. He's seen as the hero of WWI - Over There! People in both political parties talk about "making the world safe for democracy". Wilsonian is not a bad word. Didn't George W. Bush consider his own foreign policy Wilsonian? Obama probably wishes for something like the Treaty of Versailles. Wilson may have failed to get it ratified in the Senate but his opponents are blamed for our failure to join the League of Nations and our refusal to join the League is why it failed to keep the peace. (At least that's what the historians say.) Wilson won the Nobel Prize for advancing the concept of the League. It doubtful Obama or his supporters would see any comparison to the president of Princeton as a failure. To them, Wilson's failures are the result of sabotage by political enemies. They'll say the same of themselves. Their ideas won't be wrong. Their concepts will have no shortcomings. Their enemies will merely sabotage their efforts. They'll be victims of politics.

Long enough to empower those who seek to fundamentally reshape America. Long enough to condition those in positions of power to believe that Obama should be bestowed with opportunities --- along every step of his path to glorious failure.

Obama may have a fairly solid IQ somewhere between 115 and 130. He is no genius, but he is far from stupid (think Letterman or Olbermann). Obama has been raised in a milieu that trashes ordinary American values for self determination and responsibility. As such, he is not evil, but an evil meme runs most of his thoughts and decisions. It is true that he has little practical experience for evaluating long term feedback of the results of implementing his ideas, and his study of history is too one dimensional to avail a decent substitute. And so, he has become personification of an evil meme that is contrived for destroying ("changing") the essence of American values and culture. As such, whether he is personally evil is not particularly important. It is the evil that runs him through and through that must be faced down. Is this really so hard to figure out?

Obama is a nothing more than a teleprompter puppet for the Ayers/Soros Destroy America Brigade. For the past 50 (or more) years, the left has tireless labored to dismantle America's public education system, corrupt her universities, compromise media objectivity, eliminate embedded principles of morality, replace capitalism with socialism and drive a wedge between American patriots and the indoctrinated, entitlement-dependent, marginally-educated fools their system has created. Seemingly few Americans under the age of 40 have any understanding of American history, civics, Christian heritage or her Constitution. This generation of robots has been taught by their foreign and Communist masters that America is a nation of greedy, imperialistic, resource-devouring, racist criminals. They now hate the United States and all it has stood for, and as such, have willingly elected a Communist figurehead as President. These youthful fools will soon learn it has traded America's heritage and freedoms for a few crumbs of government entitlements and patronage. Enjoy the hearty taste of your seed corn, traitors, for your masters will soon determine who is worthy to eat and who is not. Hint: It may not be you.

Please. I want Obama defeated. But I will not celebrate until the deed is done. Premature celebration of his failed presidency does not advance us toward the goal of seeing him actually fail. No more rejoicing should occur until we have a plan. Posted by: George S Aug 31, 09:44 AM He's failing because of no narrative? Well, maybe. But I have a different analogy... Suppose instead of Commander-In-Chief he applied for Pilot-In-Command. We think hey, great idea, 'bout time we had a black pilot. But some who have technical knowledge warn that his log book is lacking in in-Type experience. No problem, we say, after all George Bush gave us a rough ride (never mind he recovered control after a direct hit from an enemy missile) and Captain Obama is promising change a smooth, post turbulence flight. We listen to his eloquence as his baritone voice has the confidence and the seeming experience of a gray-haired, squinty eyed former fighter pilot. We are in good hands... Then, we notice something's not right. The plane is taxiing too fast, tires squealing as it turns. Nah, it's just we need getting used to a different pilot, is all. But some of us notice something very alarming as the plane takes the runway - the flaps are still up. Shouts of "deploy flaps or we'll crash" resonate through the cabin from a few concerned, experienced flyers. Capt. Obama comes on the radio and assures us that he is not going to repeat the mistakes of the previous crew, he is going to remake the aircraft. Those fellow passengers who don't know smugly tell those of us who do to "give the new pilot a chance". But those who know say you cannot ignore the law of aerodynamics (flaps avoid wing stall at climb-out speeds), to which Capt. Obama responds with "I won". The aircraft hurtles down the runway, fishtailing, the nose rotates too high and too fast, the aircraft struggles to maintain altitude and heading and we feel a buffeting than signals imminent stall... ... now we are all scared sitless. Everyone finally realizes that the good captain has no control. But the flight attendants walk down the aisle with plastic smiles on their faces calling those who are terrified 'Racists'. They assure us that all is well, even as we pull a hard left (pun intended) 4-g, 60-degree bank and hear the groaning of fatiguing titanium. It doesn't take a degree in aerodynamic engineering to know somethings wrong. We look among us to see who is qualified to fly, to change crew. The flight attendants then brow beat and threaten passengers

not to talk to the other pilots on board; they spread false information and even resort to nasty rumors about them and even insult their children. Now, the flight attendants need to protect the commander from being replaced with a competent hand. They tell the passengers that the pilot inherited an unstable aircraft; the previous pilot broke all the instruments. When we respond that the aircraft was flying very well with the previous crew, we are told that we created the mess and not to do a lot of talkin'. The plane is in trouble, there is a crisis. Chief Flight Attendant Emmanuel recognizes the value of Obama's hand on the yoke and tells the Captain not to squander this opportunity by engaging the autopilot. Instead, we are told that we would have to give up our money and our freedom to right the ship. Some of us are scared and are willing to do it - just to, maybe, not crash. Others are oblivious as to what is going on - they have blind trust in the skipper or are engrossed with the in-flight movie, Michael Moore's the Wonders of Cuban Aviation. How will the flight end? Either the passengers will elect an experienced pilot to take over or Capt. Obama will put the aricraft in an unrecoverable flat spin and, in full view of all the passengers, don on a parachute and say with his golden voice as he opens the emergency exit...

AnneH, The only questionable election I have wittnesed in my years was and is OBAMA'S. The reason the communist party was so pissed when GW Bush was elected the first time, was that they had ACORN AND SEIU and the rest of the commies ALREADY stuffing ballot boxes and registering dead people and having ppl voting four times back then, and when it wasn't enough to throw the election their way they started hollering fixed election when it was them all along. I completely agree otherwise.

Like either Ann Coulter or Laura Ingraham said "you can always tell what Liberals are up to by what they are accusing Conservatives of".

Posted by: James McPherson Aug 31, 10:03 AM

Obama's major failings thus far come from continuation/expansion of Bush policies, and of course it's too early to tell how this will play out. Unless Republicans comes up with someone (and some policies) far more appealing than what they've offered so far (and someone with a coherent message of their own), turnout will be low, the GOP will continue to split, and Obama will be re-elected. On the predictable side, however, note that it didn't take more than the fifth and sixth responses to this post to get in Hitler comparisons. Posted by: Cuffs Aug 31, 10:11 AM Brilliant!!!!! Now we know what a puppet Obama is and always was. May the cartel behind him die the same political death that is coming to him. Posted by: Jon W Aug 31, 10:14 AM Think of it this way. How many personal anecdotes does Obama reference regarding his past? Unless you lived in Hawaii or Chicago, or attended Harvard and Columbia, you can't relate to Obama. He has hidden his past in a fog of secrecy. How can you get to know an invisible man? Bingo! The only aspect of Obama that is certain, is his liberal/marxist/communist mentors and friends. How wonderful. An invisible man who is a man known mostly, or only by his Leftist ideology. Obama is a man with no discernable substance. At least none he will voluntarily reveal. Absent are stories of friends and colleagues about their struggles to run a money making business. As I see it, Obama hasn't earned an honest dime in his life. No, lawyer doesn't count. I worked more days during a summer job than Obama has practicing as a lawyer. He's been the perpetual recipient of other peoples money, through college grants, charitable boards, or a salary paid by public taxes while in government. What person, other than Ted Kennedy, could reach 48 years of age, and not have a real job in the private sector? How? What percentage of America can identify with this sort of career history. I'm 49, and haven't stopped working since I was 14. From 14 to 18 years old, I was a farm hand. I wasn't paid by a grant, a charity, or tax revenues. Honest work for honest pay. I've spent most of my life in residential/commercial, and heavy construction. I have tangible results for my work. Hundreds of houses, a couple dozen shopping centers, high rises, and a few mega structures to boot. Out of all those projects, only one, an animal shelter, was paid from charitable donations. How can any but a slim few, identify with the career arc of Obama? America elected a slip and fall, flim-flam lawyer to rule over us unedumacated peoples. The reason Obama got elected? His ultimate appeal was to those people, who like him, owe their existence to money generated through private charity, or the number one coerced charity,

taxes. Our taxes. Were we to believe that Obama, with a lifetime dependency on OPM, was going to possess some insightful information about the independent spirit that made America the freest greatest nation in the history of man? After a life spent reaping the inscrutable largess of the State, Obama becomes a believer in statism. Wow, didn't see that one coming.

I am troubled that McCain's campaign adviser jumped ship to go to Obama. If he went to Obama, then it was not just about the money. So why was he with McCain to begin with? How conservative is McCain, really?

I do feel that he is the messenger (along with his teleprompter) for others who are complicit with him on his "remaking" of our country. They are very dangerous and will stop at nothing, I believe, to force their agenda on America. I am heartened by the awakening that appears to be going on. Many were ignorant.... but thankfully, they aren't stupid. If we had an honest media in this country, most people would have never voted for this man, or for most any of his ilk. The facts are what they are, our media is in the tank, and we are being ruled now by people who neither appreciate what this country is about, nor care. They intend to disregard the people..... the mistake that they have long been notorious for. We haven't seen angry yet..... just wait till some of these policies start to produce their results. Bottom line, our country has elected the least qualified person ever, and yes, he will go down in history as one of our greatest mistakes! And yes, we will pay dearly for the mistake! Posted by: Typicalwhitewoman Aug 31, 10:21 AM Posted by: CountryBoy new Aug 31, 04:19 AM Yes, McCain should have done much better, but he got zero help. ================================================ All McCain had to do, was "say it like it is"....much like Sarah Palin does, every time she speaks directly to the people...she's not waiting for any help. It's the reason we love Dick Cheney....he says it like it is. McCain's family history is so impressive, that he dishonors the family name, by his own actions, as a politician. So sad.

The one time I was actually thrilled with McCain, was his performance at Saddleback church with Rick Warren asking the same questions to both Obama and McCain. He then immediately reverted to his RINO ways. Why couldn't he just declare what he was...a tried and true Democrat? Posted by: matlock Aug 31, 10:23 AM How silly to even be talking about the 2012 presidential election. There will be no "election"! Anyone who thinks this election was an honest one is a fool.

He is out of his league when it comes to being a red-blooded American. Even his appointees are tax dodging, low-lifers like he is. Many of his associates are convicted felons. Of course he is not one of us! His elementary school enrollment form has his citizenship as Indonesian and his religion as Muslim. And you want to wait around for another election? Get real!

I love it! :-) Posted by: Tyler Aug 31, 11:16 AM No love lost for obama on this site. I love it. We as conservatives are way more informed than people who voted for obama. I hope American Thinker does an article

about this topic. I watched John Zieglers film were he interviewed obama voters and they didn't know crap! Its very dangerous when there are millions of uninformed citizens. That is probably the biggest threat we face. More so than terrorism. Obama can do a lot more damage than terrorists and he has. All because of uninformed people who felt good voting for obama. What a shame. If anyone is interested there is a wesite called the official i am sorry i voted for obama.com that has a tally and comment section for people who either voted for obama or hate obama. You should check it out. Posted by: Grant from Comfort Aug 31, 11:23 AM Don’t get haughty. The Obama Administration is barely 7 months old, Congress is totally lost to leftists for at least the next 17 months and the judiciary is complicit. In addition, Obama has an army of Americans that he deeply understands: inner city minorities, SEIU members and ACORN radicals. If you think this POTUS is finished terrorizing free markets and restricting liberty, you’re delusional. Posted by: Teddy Aug 31, 11:44 AM The saddest part of Obama's imminent failure is that due to his overwhelming reliance upon his race to gain power, he has effectively barred any black contender from ever ascending to the presidency in the future. Posted by: H Hazell Aug 31, 11:48 AM ...but he is so articulate and brilliant in failure!!! Posted by: Va. Aug 31, 12:12 PM I don't know which I look forward to more. The fall of Obama or the fall of the cult in Congress that have elected & followed him.

with most Americans. Without his teleprompters he is completely illiterate and history-deficient. He is a baffoon intent on destruction of a great and free country. God help us if we let him succeed.

******* Tom M., you might enjoy this gem that I found from a fellow conservative: "The Law" by Frederick Bastiat, written in 1848. Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before - and immediately following -the Revolution of February 1848. This was the period when France was rapidly turning to complete socialism. As a Deputy to the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Bastiat was studying and explaining each socialist fallacy as it appeared. And he explained how socialism must inevitably degenerate into communism. But most of his countrymen chose to ignore his logic. It's 25 pages long if you print it out: [www.constitution.org] Posted by: Beth Barnat Aug 31, 12:43 PM Teddy Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------> The saddest part of Obama's imminent failure is > that due to his overwhelming reliance upon his > race to gain power, he has effectively barred any > black contender from ever ascending to the > presidency in the future. ********** Exactly!! Before the election I was talking to a young Black man who was really excited about Obama. I told him that Obama was a Marxist and did not want what was good for America. I said, "Do you really want him to be the frist Black president? Because if he becomes president (with no experience, no credentials, no integrity, etc., etc.) then he will be the last Black president."

First,"saddest"? Sad for whom? Second, I would have said, "black LIBERAL contender". Third, I'd say, so what? It was that mentality that got us into this mess in the first place.

Aug 31, 01:10 PM Maybe McCain lost on purpose. Just maybe he did the unthinkable and essentially forfeited his shot at the White House because he knew what an absolute train wreck this would be. Think about it... the American people haven't been this shaken up in decades! He's been around for long enough to watch this great country slowly slipping down this leftist slope on which we're now tumbling at break-neck speeds. Though I absolutely hate to say it, maybe it's what needed to happen in order to put the pendulum swinging back the other way into overdrive. We're in dangerous territory... and if McCain did indeed lose on purpose, he took one hell of a gamble with this country's future. But I believe in what this country was founded on and I believe in our collective strength and I damn sure believe that if we stand together, we stay informed, and we persevere then we CAN and we WILL take this bull back by the horns!! This didn't happen overnight. And the fight to take back this country won't either. But the disaster that is the Obama administration can certainly give us a good headstart. IF we play our cards right, we can beat them at their own game of never letting a good crisis go to waste. The sleeping giant has indeed awoken and has a date with DC on 9/12!!!

What were Republicans saying 'just to get elected'? I always thought that the knock on the GOP is that they do what they say they're going to do. Perhaps Bush pere's suggestion to 'read his lips'? While the Republicans have stood aside to allow the Obama Administration all the more digging room, they have tried to bring forth other proposals - only to be shot down in committee. Perhaps your lack of knowledge can be attributed to the

Democrats limiting the Republicans franking priveleges? Republicans have stood fast on tort reform and inter-state insurance, for example. They are also against government-payer and have supported private insurance changes, including taxcredits. Your position strikes me as lazy. If you don't agree with those GOP positions, then fine. But don't pretend they don't exist. As long as you maintain that the two parties have equivalent positions, then you absolve yourself of any responsibility for your vote. Or non-vote. Politicians, to a large degree, are detestable people. I agree with that. Our democracy is a giant tug-of-war about which direction to take our selves, our country, and our world. The fact that the hands on the rope are grimy, sweaty, and foul shouldn't distract us from what is being fought over. Pick a side. Posted by: powhitemale Aug 31, 01:23 PM WHERE"S LENNIE?

I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those pesky kids." 1-5 points -- You possess keen insight of the current political situation. However, continue to monitor in case the President does prove to be an alien. (Whether that be from Kenya or another planet, we wait to see). 0 points -- You are obviously mentally challenged. Please go back to googling Brittany Spears and the Jonas Brothers. You are on the wrong site.

Well lets actually look at what facts we DO HAVE about Obama: 1. Part of New Party in Chicago politics. New Party was left of left and followed Marx. Socialist. 2. Obama has never produced, made, created any bill or run any type of business or corporation. No experience. 3. Obama HAS managed to tax the poor (tobacco tax), and now is attempting to take health care rights from the elderly and disadvantaged. Thus, he is taking from the poor and defenseless. Evil. 4. Change and re-distrubution of wealth, his party platform, includes marxists in his cabinet and czars. He has attacked and ursurped the major auto manufacturer (GM), the banks, and Health Care. He gave GM to the Unions and China, and printed so much money the dollar is in danger. He has divided the country on the 'relevance' of the Constitution and rule of law. By ignorance or deliberate, or both, this plan clearly endangers America. 5. Many of his cabinet don't pay taxes. Elitist The above FACTS demonstrate: 1. Evil 2. Socialist 3. Elitist 3. Endangers America 4. Incompetent. I think we can safely say that Obama could be said to fit into your category A or B, depending upon intent. The intent thing is up for debate, but you should reclassify your grading scale to go to 15 (A and B together). Finally, at 15 this probably represents a well informed, politically interested, Constitutional patriot, who feels that the country is headed down a dangerous path, rather than a right wing extremist.

While he should have run a tougher campaign and made issues of Ayers and Wright, we, the people, nominated him. In addition, we, the people, have to be the ones who expose people like Obama. He didn't just win with far left voters...he won with people from all over the spectrum. And while I am ready to take my share of responsibility for this failed president (although I did NOT vote for him), why are organizations like the MSM still getting ANY viewers?? Why are we allowing these stations to make any money off the American people? Somebody is watching them.

This country was formed from the great masses and even now, we must take responsibility to run these liars out of business, overwhelm them with negative comments (email them everyday), hold the leaders in the house and senate's feet to the fire and stop this before it gets worse. And it can get worse. We must remain outspoken, vigilant, and clear in our message of hatred for this far left tilt by our government. While placing the blame on McCain may be soothing for the rest of us, it IS the rest of us that must accept partial blame for the direction this country is going. Let's stop it while there is still time. Posted by: Jennifer Aug 31, 02:14 PM RickG - Ditto.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? CARE TO COMMENT? THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION IS UNDERWAY TO ERADICATE THE ENEMIES WITHIN.
