Is it any wonder that empty-suit disaster president Oblahblah is now campaigning as if he's running for president?

FROM THE EDITOR OF NEWSWEEK...

The liberal Newsweek Magazine is going out of business, but not before it attacks the President. This is quite an article, even more so when you consider that NEWSWEEK finally had the guts to admit it. WOW! Newsweek COVER!!! Also read the article at the end. AMAZING!!!

Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about Obama. This is timely and tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his Agenda are starting to trickle through the protective wall built around him by the liberal media...

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?
Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer;" a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote "present"); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor;" a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president? There is no evidence that he ever attended or worked for any university or that he ever sat for the Illinois bar. We have no documentation for any of his claims. He may well be the greatest hoax in history.Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day.

But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were 'a bit' extreme, he was given a pass. Let that Sink in: Obama was given a pass - held to a lower standard because of the color of his skin. Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) "non-threatening," all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest? Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon - affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back.

Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don't care if these minority students fail; liberals aren't around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin - that's affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn't racism, then nothing is. And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois ; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.
What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people - conservatives included - ought now to be deeply embarrassed. The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of cliches, and that's when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth - it's all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches)
And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerless-ness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

Roudy does not like blacks, period.

However, after January 20, yes, we will have an impostor in the WH.

If you're against Obama or Hillary you either hate blacks or are a sexist. That typical Democrap modus operandi is not working this time.

You show your stupid again. I am against Hillary and Trump. I am neither sexist nor racist nor neo-con nor alt rightist like you. Your kind just don't count in deciding things.

Bullshit. Every election and in between, the left keeps telling Americans that republicans are all racists, sexists, homophobes, etc. And this mentality has taken over the biased media as well, in an attempt to poison the mind of the public. Americans are getting sick and tired of that shit.

At Mecca, the shade of one's skin will directly relate to the quality of accommodations for the night. All Arabs that know of the Kim Philby case also know that Philby's DNA as son of an Arabist did make a difference when voting. "Obama's father was 12.5% African negro, 87.5% Arab." (Letter from Matar, Women in Green, Jerusalem, June 2008)

Roudy, you are a silly fuckoff. You think that you speak for most Americans, and all you speak for are a few that are as screwball as you are. President Obama twice won the Presidential election. And one of the reasons that he won them was that people like yourself so alienated other Americans that we wanted nothing to do with the kind of people that you support. People like you are a definate negative for the GOP.

With the neutered media that has become the propaganda arm of the Dems showering him with flowers what do you expect? The important polls are the ones where a majority of Americans think we are headed on the wrong track. And guess who's been at the helm the last eight years leading America on the wrong track? Yup.

Funny part is the scowling bitch Hillary thinks it's a good idea having the con artist Oblahblah campaign for her, despite the fact that majority of Americans are pissed off over Obamacare cost increases. Be my guest. Just reminds people of the asshole who lied to them. LOL

Satisfaction With the United States

Thanks, Newsweek, for pointing out the obvious.

But still these left wing mindless sheep will not EVER admit to anything wrong with their president or their party or their corrupt despicable ways. They will call this author a racist, I imagine, either that or just say it's all B.S. from some disgruntled lackey trying to advance his own career.

The Obama story is so outrageous and denies all credulity, I have to more easily believe there are external dark forces in the universe controlling the minds of his defenders --- than I could believe all these voters fell for this man twice, all on their own accord.

This hit piece was ordered by the Clintons as revenge for taking away her Presidency in 2008. I feel it in my bones.

In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people - conservatives included - ought now to be deeply embarrassed. The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of cliches, and that's when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth - it's all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches)
And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerless-ness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.
Awesome! I've been calling him out as an impostor for years. Newsweek in it's dying days nails it.
I`ll be damned! We got us a real live birther here just when I thought they had all been stuffed and placed in museums. You go boy! And yes he has been responsible for the 4.9% unemployment rate and the stock market that`s 11,000 points higher than it was when Gomer left office. WTF planet are you from?
