This "President" is such a pompous, arrogant, self-absorbed JERK, everything is always all about him.
A Failed Presidency Is Now Assured
"This is reminiscent of the Jimmy Carter years - the last time the U.S. was seen as weak - unable to move and coax other countries, unable to reassure dependent allies, unable to have the respect of the world and, of course, unable to move the mullocracy of Iran."
Where oh where have you read the Obama Presidency being compared to the Jimmy Carter years?
Oh, that's right, this very blog!
The NYT reports: "China held firm against most American demands. With China's micro-management of Mr. Obama's appearances in the country, the trip did more to showcase China's ability to push back against outside pressure than it did to advance the main issues on Mr. Obama's agenda, analysts said."
The Washington Post: "If there was any significant change during this trip, in fact, it was in the United States' newly conciliatory and sometimes laudatory tone. . . . Obama's trip stood in stark contrast to visits by his predecessors."
The Times stated that Obama was given "less respect than was given presidents Bush or Clinton."
Pretty stunning stuff coming from the lamestream media (a phrase coined by this writer in 1999) as it seems the rats are jumping the good ship Obama.
There's no question in my mind that the Obama Presidency is already over. Lest there be any doubt, watch what happens to "health care reform" in the Senate. Word in Washington DC is there are 40 Republican Senators steadfast in resolve in blocking the Harry Reid written 2,000+ page monstrosity which strips American's of our basic God given rights to manage our own health care.
There's also the Blue Dog Democrats who are watching Obama's popularity fade (hint: Obama's "strong approval" ratings are in Bush territory now) and it'll be unlikely that the Obama-Reid-Pelosi Congressional Mafia will be able to bribe their way into gaining enough support to break a fillibuster. Reid may have been able to pay off Mary Landrieu (D. Louisiana) with a cool $100,000,000 but the remaining Blue Dog's don't appear to be for sale. They see the polls and at this moment in their political careers which is the least dangerous for them: back Obama, or jump ship.
Here's the thing about it all: I'm not a fan of either party. They're all a bunch of scum-sucking bottom feeders who deserve to be tossed out of office in 2010 anyway. Those who may have an ice cubes chance in hell of keeping their seat are going to vote against the Obama-Reid-Pelosi seizure of American's health care. They see the writing on the wall and it isn't good.
