Barack Obama is one of the best campaigners in modern history. Barack Obama is also the worst US president, perhaps ever.
Brian Terry’s death during “Fast & Furious” is not phony. Nor are the deaths of multiple victims south of the border.
The deaths of apparently dispensable Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty & Tyrone Woods in Benghazi are not phony.
His disregard of the US Constitution with his NSA spying on US citizens; attempts to silence the press with the AP and James Rosen incidents; and using the Internal Revenue Service to stop or intimidate political opponents should not go unrequited. There is nothing phony about any of this.
And numerous other scandals with bureaucracies such as EPA, FAA, DOJ, Energy … are disturbing stories that should be in the headlines, except for the above.
Few questioned the “CHANGE” Obama promised. After going on 5 years, we now know that his CHANGE is ‘destroy liberty and replace with socialism'.
Barack Obama knows that during a campaign, he can get away with blatant lies. So he campaigns.
with the possible exception that he also has shown what a genuine monster he is by his full-throated support of abortion on demand at any time up to and including the last second before a baby draws its first breath.
The most alarming and depressing feature of his presidency, or at least for his term of occupation, is that American citizens actually voted for this even after they were shown who and what he is and what his goals are. That is far more frightening to me than Obama is.
Obama we could survive. I'm not sure we will survive the people who were so happy to elect him.
deep enough we can find a way to put all this on Bush, or Reagan, or Lincoln....
Maybe John Adams.
Or those "stupid" Cambridge police. Or George Zimmerman...
It's only been five years. Let the poor guy settle in. Can't we just give him a chance for Pete's sake?
YES WE CAN!
YES WE CAN!

Not certain we can put it ALL on the American voter. Look what we put up as opposition to OzBama. Yeah, I voted for McCain and Romney, but I never gave either one a chance of a snowball in Hades.
We could have done SO much better.
You're right of course. And there also was much election and voter fraud going on as well. Illinois, for example, has that down to an art form.
Actually voted more than once. Remember the poll wucca who voted by absentee and again because s he wa n ted to be sure her vote got counted. And voting for 3 relatives?
Obama and his pathetic supporters are turning this country into a country of peons who report to a warlord.
the votes that were not produced due to the IRS crackdown on so many conservative political action groups.
Yet progs scream bloody murder about are "discouraged" from voting because of voter ID requirements. (Even though they can get FREE ID from the Board of Electons.)
