How To Lose All Credibility In One Term

Published by at 8:26 am under All General Discussions

President Obama will go down in history – as another one-term disaster juts like Jimmy Carter. Why?

Because he has lost all credibility. His political capitol is all used up and every time he comes out spouting platitudes and partial truths (like he did last night) he digs the hole deeper. He is not inspiring ay more, he is repulsive. His talk is too sugary and surreal when compared with the reality of the economic and financial mess the Democrats created. He is so devoid of credibility even his rabid liberal base is abandoning him over reckless promises never kept:

… few people noticed what Vermont’s Sen. Bernie Sanders said:

“I think it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition.”

This is political treason 469 days before a presidential election.

Now, comes a new ABC News/Washington Post poll with a whole harvest of revelations, among them, strong indications that Obama’s liberal base is starting to crumble. Among the nuggets:

Despite those hundreds of billions of blown stimulus dollars and almost as many upturn promises from Joe Biden, 82% of Americans still say their job market is struggling. Ninety percent rate the economy negatively, including half who give it the worst rating of “poor.”

Sadly, Obama, Pelosi and Reid come from the bizarre world of liberalism where results don’t mean anything, and all that counts is how well you spin and how hard you pretend to care. The three of them kept racking up deficits and debt expecting the US economy to naturally right itself, naively assuming there was no way a greedy, bloated and intrusive government could do any harm.

Yes, they are that stupid. We have the recession itself (caused by liberals intruding on mortgage rules and creating mountains of risky debt for the US taxpayer to cover instead of lenders) and after that the bumbled recovery to finally prove liberals don’t have a clue about how to make things work – like jobs, industries, education, etc. You name it, they will screw it up.

Because to them everything is childishly simply and anyone can create new technology, new medical treatments, create success and control the weather. All you have to do is care, after that it is easy.

The left had control of the ship of state and ran the entire country aground, destroying the life savings and life’s work of tens of millions of Americans. And they demand more???

To this day Jimmy Carter, with his BS PhD in physics, still does not understand how wrong he was. Neither will Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their groupies in the news media (CNN and MSNBC especially).

Likely voters hold a dismal view of the news media, generally regarding reporters as biased, unethical and too close to the politicians they purport to cover, according to a new poll for The Hill.

The share of voters who believe the media are too friendly with politicians is almost twice as large as those who find their coverage of politicians appropriate. Forty-four percent of voters assert the former; only 24 percent believe the latter.

But it does not matter if they wake up – it only matters if the voters do. And they are definitely waking up.

Update: Bill Kristol nails Obama on one of his more repulsive comments last night:

I was struck by these sentences in President Obama’s speech:

Now, what makes today’s stalemate so dangerous is that it has been tied to something known as the debt ceiling – a term that most people outside of Washington have probably never heard of before.

Understand – raising the debt ceiling does not allow Congress to spend more money. It simply gives our country the ability to pay the bills that Congress has already racked up.

Consider the condescension implicit in the president’s statement—“a term that most people outside of Washington have probably never heard of before.” These “people outside of Washington” are not little children being lectured on an obscure subject by a worldly adult. These people outside Washington are … citizens. Judging by the polls, most of us have opinions about whether, and under what conditions, the debt ceiling should be raised. We don’t seem to be as ignorant as Obama thinks we are of the term or concept of a debt ceiling. But the president assumes we’ve never bothered our pretty little heads about such a thing.

Clearly, it is not American voters who have resisted bothering their pretty little heads with real world experiences, skills, hard won success and knowledge. What happens when 95% of the country is smarter and more experienced than their president?

Apparently we are about to find out.

    Jimmy Carter never earned a M.S., M.A. or Ph.D. He attended Georgia Southwestern College and Georgia Institute of Technology and received a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from the United States Naval Academy in 1946.

    I understand that Boehner’s website was brought down last night due to high volume of requests and that there was a tea party rally outside Boehner’s local office with delivery of 350 letters.

    So…as per obama’s request…are the phones at the congressional switchboard ringing off the wall?

    I understand that Van Jones is trying to rally up people to “protest” outside congressional offices.

    So anyone know anything about the phones and the Van Jones protests?

    Actually, that’s a pretty good description of the people who were instrumental in putting Obama in the White House.

    Highlander, hhhmmm…that’s a good point. But more so…the way the leftists argue over the constitution are unreal!

    Having been in the community organizing world, he is speaking at that level….which is really a sad part of the whole community organizing world: the “community” can often get duped by the “organizers”, imho.
