Where's our president?

President Obama is missing in action!

Isn’t it a shame that when anything happens, our president is either on the way to a fundraiser, playing golf or sleeping in the West Wing of the White House?

It happened again with the recent Malaysian Airlines crash! He could not miss a fundraiser to see if Americans had been killed by pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine!

What’s happening? What does he care about?

He seems to enjoy all the

benefits of the office...the travel...the power ..but when a problem crops up, he just acts like he wants everything to go away and leave him alone......nothing but warmed over Jimmy Carter......

Only in America...

Only in America could the people go to a $35,000 a plate fundraiser and listen to the President talk about income inequity.

I seriously think Obama has ADHD ....

I seriously think Obama has ADHD (if there really is such a thing) because he has trouble focusing on more than one thing at a time and finishing what he starts.

He pivots more than a basketball center because he appears to lack self confidence in his decision making skills as a result of his not having executive experience or deep down knowing he is in over his head.

Obama is comfortable campaigning/fundraising because that is the only place he now gets adoring idiots worshiping him and telling him how great and wonderful he is.

As a community organizer/agitator his mission was to go in and convince people they were getting screwed because they were victims of "The System" or "The Man" or someone else.

After he did that he would leave and go to another group and do the same thing. He's only doing the same thing as president.

He is acting like a his backgrorund as a community organizer has trained him. He is like a blow fly---going from one pile of crap to another laying maggot eggs and then leaving without caring what happens after he flies away.

Obama fears being seen as governing because that would mean he has to accept responsibility. As long as he's seen as a Washington outsider and can talk down the system he is comfortable. He always sounds as if "Elect me and I'll go to DC and straighten it all out. Send me!"

Profile of a president

This president is a thief, a sociopath and a pathological liar - or is that redundant?

He has stolen billions from the American taxpayer. Not only with the ineffective and destructive policies he inflicts upon our nation, but his peeing away millions of our tax dollars having a ball taking expensive vacations, golfing, and skipping the light fantastic with all the wealthy liberals?

Have our fellow Americans ever been so deceived, our citizens been so divided, our country in such upheaval since the birth of our nation as we have been these last five and a half years?

Have we ever had a president who incited so much violence in the world and so set the stage for so much damage and danger to America from our enemies?

dee, it is simple. He is a community organizer and that is all he will ever be. It is amazing how people can still support him, that says a lot. Over 85% of black folks still support him, so very sad.

He has the destruction of America set on auto-pilot and there is no need for further action except occasionally using his pen and phone. Like an arsonist, once he sets the fire he can just sit back and watch.

I do agree with Obama that there are two Americas...

I do agree with Obama that there are two Americas, but I see the two Americas a little differently than he does.

I see an America that works, and the America that doesn't. The America that contributes and the America that doesn't. It's not the haves and the have nots, it's the dos and the don'ts.

Obama and the Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victimhood and anger, instead of ability and hope.

Obama's premise--that you reduce income inequity by running down the successful--seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spares the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices.

Obama is like the cheerleader at a football game. Always yelling and screaming to stir up the crowd but never playing the game himself so that he will have to be judged on his actions.

Obama is like the critic in that he is never on the field of battle. He never ends up sweaty, bloody, and scarred. He never does and never will know truly what it means to have fought your guts out for something you believe in and come out a winner because of what struggles you, not someone else, have battled through.

85% of black folks and a bunch of whites too. It speaks to how truly ignorant the general electorate is when it comes to politics/politicians. Just rubber stamp approval because of the letter behind the name.

I will never ever vote for someone who thinks that because I and many many others worked hard to make a good living for our family and put some away along the way for our future thinks that I owe it to those that do not. President Obama seems to think different than I and many others think.

Obama is working tirelessly

Obama is working tirelessly day and night on trying to keep Rep from taking the Senate as he would become a lame duck. He cares about nothing else right now because all the cards are in one basket

I think Obama like the pomp and the fawning faces...Just take note of how he preens before a crowd. He gets none of that sitting in an office doing the people's business - he says he is like a caged lion.........

OBAMA
Unpublished

Obama is a perfect example why affirmative action doesn't work. People should get a job based on their skills. Obama is the most unqualified person to ever be POTUS. His only skill was to capitalize on white guilt and black bias to get elected. He came to office with no knowledge or understanding of running anything let alone the most powerful country on earth. He was an empty suit when elected and his job performance shows he still is.

What is the President

What is the President supposed to do, say "EVERYBODY STOP WHAT THEY ARE DOING! COME TO A HALT! THERE IS A CRISIS!"

With the ultra sophisticated communications systems that is available to the President, what does he need to stay in the White House for? Is he supposed to breathlessly sit in the Oval Office and await further developments? What would be the point of that?

What was he supposed to do about the plane crash in the Ukraine, anyway?

The media, because there isn't enough news, now treats everything like A CRISIS, because they want viewers.

What can he do, before there is any information available?

Is a President supposed to run around like Chicken Little every time something happens? Do you see other world leaders doing that?

Do people want the US to go into a panic, over something that isn't a crisis, if the President suddenly brings his schedule to a halt? Because that's what happens, people think if the President thinks it's a big deal, then it must be.

And when terrorists can get the President and the US to change anything that they are doing, THEY WIN. That's exactly what they want.

And is that what people really want, for terrorists to win?

Barack Obama has already held more re-election fundraising events than every elected president since Richard Nixon combined, according to figures to be published in a new book. Even other liberal democrats are saying he need to pay attention to what is going on in the world.

corgimom....they've already won. Obama has handed them the entire Middle East and North Africa with his failed foreign policy...(or was it intentional). He and Kerry are trying their best to give them Israel. Anyway, they've got the Middle East, we evacuated Libya today, North Africa is in radical Islam turmoil, Putin has the Crimea, and the South American invasion is going well at our border.....Obama's job is done. He is playing golf and fund raising....MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. No need for him to do a damned thing. He's done all the damage we can stand for a while.

Corgimom, it is easy to stop

Corgimom, it is easy to stop and deal with the immigration crises. One send the nation guard down to the border and turn every one Back. Give Mexico a heads up and tell them in 10 days no one crosses the border illegally. So they can get thier border under control. Send any body who crosses illegally back home. No big deal unless your an idiot like Obama and get lawyers for the illegals. Then you let the states actually enforce laws. What had Obama actually done? Refused to enforce immigration laws. Turned criminals back onto the population by the thousand instead of deporting them. Stated US policy is not to deport certain people in violation of the law. Is that enought?

He spent 33.4% of his time in office on vacation. Oh sorry, that was the previous President.

bod, I am not a fan of Bush but what you said is totally untrue. Bush had an office at his ranch and conducted business there. He met with several foreign officials there. I know you hated Bush but try to be truthful.

I disagree. The leftist would love for the repubs to try to impeach the lying, racist thing in the WH. They know the press would make them look bad and they would get all kinds of sympathy from the ignorant and the dumb.
