Is Barack Obama the Weakest President in History?

It would appear, at this point, that Barack Obama will go down in history as a weak, ineffectual president.  As a leader of the free world, he is useless.  He does nothing, knows nothing, lies repeatedly and some people are still foolish enough to believe anything he says, promises to look into all the scandals, but doesn’t.  He cannot make a decision.  I don’t know who is running the country behind the scenes, but I don’t think it is Barack Obama.

Obama is not respected by other countries.  The words of Anna Pukas of the UK Express tell a story of how, in March of 2011, the world looked at the USA–our once proud country. I can just imagine what her words might be now.   Obama’s foreign policy, if he has one, is a sad mess.

Here is an excellent blog by Joe Newby of Examiner.com, dated March 18, 2011.  Sometimes it’s good to go back and read what the American people were not being told by our media, and see how it mirrors what is going on now.

 

 

An article in a British news outlet asks: “Is Obama the weakest President in History?”

Anna Pukas writes at the UK Express:

INEFFECTUAL, invisible, unable to honour pledges and now blamed for letting Gaddafi off the hook. Why Obama’s gone from ‘Yes we can’ to ‘Er, maybe we shouldn’t’…

Pukas reminds readers of the euphoria felt by many on the left when Obama, the “son of a Kenyan goatherd” was elected to be America’s first African-American President. Liberals across the country swooned as though it was the second coming of the Messiah. Giddy from the election, some thought their days of working were over and the new President would pay their mortgage and put gas in their car.

She also reminds us of his simple slogan, “Yes we can,” but immediately notes:

His presidency, however, is turning out to be more about “no we won’t.” Even more worryingly, it seems to be very much about: “Maybe we can… do what, exactly?“ The world feels like a dangerous place when leaders are seen to lack certitude but the only thing President Obama seems decisive about is his indecision. What should the US do about Libya? What should the US do about the Middle East in general? What about the country’s crippling debts? What is the US going to do about Afghanistan, about Iran?

Pukas’ questions are direct and to the point. They also happen to be the same questions asked by many here in the U.S.

She spends much of her article on the obvious indecision displayed by Obama on the issue of Libya, but his inability to lead has been apparent to many conservatives since the very beginning.

One thing Obama is good at, though, is campaigning – and going on vacation. He seems to spend a lot of time playing golf, and there’s always NCAA brackets to be chosen. Those are, after all, far more important issues than bloodshed in Libya.

She writes:

It is also true that the President is constantly stymied by a hostile, Republican-ruled Congress. But Obama’s apparent reluctance to engage with momentous events is starting to look like more than aloofness. Some tempering of America’s role as the world’s No1 busybody may be no bad thing but under Obama the US appears to be heading towards isolationism. He is hardly doing much better at home. Economically, the US is in big trouble but the national debt is not shrinking.

Perhaps Ms. Pukas doesn’t realize that for the first two years of Obama’s term, he had a solid majority in both the House and the Senate and the GOP has only been the majority in the House for 3 months. He still has a majority in the Senate, however, a number of Democrats are concerned about their re-election in 2012.

She also seems to forget that the “world’s No 1 busybody” is the same nation that led the fight against Nazism and Japanese imperialism and the same nation that stood firm against the expansion of Soviet Communism. Obama is not leading the nation to isolationism, as she puts it, but rather leading the nation to a status just slightly above a banana republic.

She continues:

Yes we can was a noble and powerful mantra which secured for Barack Obama the leadership of

the free world.

That, and hatred of George W. Bush along with a sympathetic – no, adoring – media complex that did everything it could to ensure his election, while trashing Republican VP Candidate Sarah Palin in the most despicable way imaginable.

Pukas concludes by writing:

Those than can, do. It is time he started doing.

This is a sentiment most of us can agree upon. The problem, however, is that Obama has never held any executive position in his life, nor has he ever served a day in uniform. His resume is that of a radical political agitator, and he is very good at that.

The sad reality is that Americans have elected the most inexperienced, radical, left wing ideologue as President.

On practically every issue, except health care, he has dithered, flipped, flopped, and fiddled. When the going get tough, he gets going – to Rio, Hawaii, the golf course, or wherever First Lady Michelle wants to go.

In short, the world is burning while President Obama fiddles.

    Thank you for linking to my article in Guardian LV

      I enjoyed your article in Guardian LV, Paul Roy. I may have to start calling Obama the Teflon President because nothing sticks to him. What I want to know, is why? Other than the adoring media, I’m still searching for an answer.

  2. I wonder if our President would be impeached if he wasn’t the so-called “first black president.” Honestly, how much does he have to lie about, deny knowledge of, and shun responsibility? I see very few people stand up and proclaim his greatness…even those who voted for him are disgusted, so why, I have to ask, are we settling for someone who has weakened our nation, caused a decline in the respect we once received from other countries, and clearly has no interest other than flexing his muscles to show who is boss. Although rumors abound that he is Muslim, if that is true, his first faux pas was placing his hand on The Bible when he was sworn in. How do we initiate his removal from office…or do we really want to give him the remainder of his term to do further damage?

    • I’m all for him being gone today or even tomorrow.

      And yes – I agree that something would be done if he wasn’t the “first black president”. Even the chairman of the Congressional black caucus was very clear that his race is the only reason they haven’t stormed the white house.

      I definitely agree that being the “first black president,” even though he’s half white, has made him untouchable. The left is fearful of the word racism. The media reports the lies Jay Carney spews without question. I shudder at what Obama is doing to our country. And now he has taken over the climate/global warming issue by executive order. There are 24 members of the task force, 4 of which are Republican. Nothing unfair about that. How do we act on getting him out of office? I’m all for a million, hopefully more, fed up Americans to march on the White House.

      • First step – the right has to win the 2014 elections — Harry Reid is obviously not going to initiate any action against him. Problem is that the majority on the right keep making stupid mistakes and we’re all paying for them more and more every day.

  3. Catherine says:

    As long as the Democrats control the Senate, and Harry Reid is Majority Leader, Impeachment may not be possible. However, there are movements in the House to institute Articles of Impeachment against him and if enough Democrats in the Senate take their heads out of the sand and admit to themselves that this man is a menace to every man, woman and child in this country as well as to themselves and their families, it just might come to fruition. In any case, the House needs to stay Republican and the Senate has to become Republican in 2014 in order to make the impossible, possible. We must pray for a miracle for that to happen. If he is allowed to remain in office for his full term, there is no telling where this nation will be in 2016 or whether we will still be a free nation.
    It is a good thing to remember that he told the UN Secretary General that the United States will be a Muslim Country by 2016. Now, why would he predict that if he wasn’t a Muslim and infiltrating Muslims into every sensitive areas of our government, as well as attempting to neutralize every one who disagrees with him? Is it because he is readying his Muslim Brotherhood Comrades to be ready to assume control once he has accomplished his mission to completely destroy this nation? Think about it and watch what he’s doing, not what he says.

    • Have never listened to what he says — he’s just reading the teleprompter anyway. Except – I have learned some interesting things when they catch him off the teleprompter. Those are the moments that give glimpses into the truth.
